A gameshow that forces male nerds into the unnecessarily sexualized outfits female video game characters have that they defend as “practical,” and then makes them do agility training

There’d be so many collapsed lungs from falling face first on to metal boob cups…

Some might say I take Halloween a bit too far. Grigori Rasputin, Bill the Butcher, and Otis Driftwood.

One of my best pals for over ten years. He’s much better at not squinting into the sun than I am.

come join me as i laugh at over sized nerd bros on the internet who are currently shitting their diapers bc of Falcon becoming Captain America aka “black people can’t be super heroes bc it’s ruining my canon :((“

But they were all creaming themselves over the possibility that Joseph Gordon Levitt might be the next Batman if the Nolan series continued. 

Comic book lovers of the world, if things like this upset rather than interest or excite you, you’re an idiot and you need to know that about yourself.

Work work work.
At least I have cool purple coil tape on that machine, though.

"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.

Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon. 
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy. 
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died. 
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies. 

reblogging for commentary 

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too. 

First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation. 
And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.
Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.
If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other. 
When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.
When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.” 
And that is gross. 

This has been added to since I last saw it, so reblogging again.

The commentary sums up all of my thoughts on this subject that I am not eloquent enough to put together myself. THANK YOU

He was fine at the vet until his sister had to be taken away to have her blood drawn. It was only when she left that he began to softly cry and poked me with his paw until I held it.

How people with amnesia would probably write in journals Vs. How movies think people with amnesia would write in journals.

Sometimes my snapchats are from me. Sometimes they are from the Blood Wizard. You’ve been warned.

Reblog if you have a scar with a story behind it.

This one time I tripped

this one time I split my forehead open

This one time a dark wizard tried to kill me when I was a infant but couldn’t

One of mine was done by handcuffs 

Roller skated into a brick wall.

Human bite mark.

Rode my bike into the side of a crumbling factory. Big shard of metal got lodged in my side. 

I have a scar about two inches long and a quarter inch wide on my inner left thigh that goes right up to my groin. The story behind it is that there is no story. I have no memory of where it came from.
