this should be the most reblogged post on tumblr before it dies

We need to reblog this so much that the post breaks

So what’s going to be the factor. Sex?Nudity?Profanity? Once again I go with if you have a kid… Be a parent and monitor what they are doing. If they have access to things you don’t want the, to see…. Are you really raising your child?

DC Comics has gone from one female creator (at the start of the New 52 in 2011) to 11 at the close of 2014.

Marvel Comics has moved from zero female-led monthly titles to 10 by the end of this year.

Wonder Woman is headlining three monthly titles for the first time in her 75 year career.

Marvel is pushing forward ideas like a female Thor, an African-American Captain America, and, if rumors are true, even a female Wolverine — diversifying their A-list for the first time ever.

DC has re-envisioned its entire Bat-line in October to reflect the need for genre diversity and attract new readers, reinvigorating Batgirl, Batwoman, and Secret Six, and introducing such titles as Gotham Academy, Klarion, Arkham Manor, and Gotham by Midnight.

Dynamite Entertainment is expanding its commitment to female-led titles and preparing an all-woman team book written by Gail Simone for 2015.

Valiant Comics has released its first ever female-led title, The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage, to much acclaim.

Dark Horse Comics is broadening its creator-owned base in the wake of the loss of their Star Wars license, publishing more non-corporate-owned material than ever before.

Archie Comics is aggressively pursuing its mission to diversify the denizens of Riverdale, and add a broad collection of new genres to its publishing mix, including horror and super-hero titles.

And companies like Image Comics, BOOM! Studios, IDW Publishing, and Monkeybrain Comics continue to broaden the sheer amount of different types of material available today for adults and kids both.

First of all… holy. Second of all… shit. These are magnificent.

I wish we saw the Ninja kitty a bit more often - these are amazing…and I love the fact I can share with my kid (use a lot of art as screen savers) and there is nothing sexualized about them

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

I don’t think I should have to pay more for the services I’ve always had… Cream a software I can buy to protect me if you must, but I like most people am choosing other television viewing options to save money… Is the hurt of companies like time warner scaring politicians into supporting this?

somebody DO SOMETHING

i’ve added this before but this is the most important story that i have
this was published in the vancouver sun like 2 years ago, and i remember reading the paper after class while my sister was watching tv or something, and i burst out laughing when i read the headline. and so im tell her to look, and show her the article and she says “what’s a rim job” and my dad looked up at me and we held eye contact for like. a whole minute and we just had a terrible moment where he knew that i knew what a rim job was, and i knew that he knew what a rim job was and now that’s a reality that we have to face together

that commentary was beautiful


This had me laughing and then I read the story… and when through those awkward moments in my head that you face with your folks that no one acknowledges

Question for the world

So the other night I was driving to work after my ADHD meds were worn off for the day… I got wondering how the word ass which was used for a Donkey came to be synonymous with the butt. I get how it could be associated with personality…”you,re acting like an ass”

Then I got wandering in other countries if there are slang terms for derrières that came from farm animals.

merryweatherblue:

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

This is what makes characters in books and movies wonderful, when we can relate to them and find ourselves in them. After reading this I like drax even better

That scary

I love this I’m 5’6 - and when they cast Hugh Jackman (who has done a great job) my 1st thought is there aren’t that many short males…so they cast a tall guy for the part…no one loves the short man
