  • my “friends-with-benefits” pairing
  • my “adele” pairing (“WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AAAAAALL”)
  • my “hate sex” pairing
  • my “working on it” pairing
  • my favorite threesome / poly ship

I’m just not sure geek culture is ready for WOC superhero movies

daggerpen:

Like, sure, geek culture has become incredibly mainstream nowadays, but only for some limited “iconic” characters. I mean, geez, let’s look at the precedents here. Do you really think people would go for a WOC-led video game?

image

Especially in a franchise?

image

Can you imagine a WOC-led comic book becoming popular?

image

Breaking new ground or setting records?

image

image

And honestly, it’s so hard for female-led movies to do well

image

Can you imagine a hit geek culture movie with a woman of color in a leading role?

image

Or a TV show?

image

image

I donno, guys. It might be best to just stick to the most popular superheroes. We’re just not ready for a superhero movie with anything but iconic characters.

"Alternative R&B must die" FKA Twigs speaks out on racism in the music industry through genre-specifying:

"When I first released music and no one knew what I looked like, I would read comments like: ‘I’ve never heard anything like this before, it’s not in a genre,’” she continued. “And then my picture came out six months later, now she’s an R&B singer. I share certain sonic threads with classical music; my song “Preface” is like a hymn. So let’s talk about that. If I was white and blonde and said I went to church all the time, you’d be talking about the ‘choral aspect’. But you’re not talking about that because I’m a mixed-race girl from south London."

The Monks of Mycology, despite the name, were an entirely secular order specializing in the study of fungi. After years of intensive training in finding and identifying mushrooms, the young monks were bonded telepathically to intelligent truffle pigs and sent forth into the world.
The other people with telepathic animals—horses, dragons, birds of prey, wolves and so on—were extremely sarcastic about the whole pig thing. The monks ignored this, for three reasons.
1) Pigs are highly intelligent animals, unlike birds of prey, which are only intelligent about things that matter to birds of prey, and dragons, whose brains can be compared to a homicidal grapefruit.
2) While dragons and wolves are all very impressive in battle, most of the Monasteries of Mycology kept on staff a number of grizzled warriors bonded to thousand-pound battle-boars. An angry sixty-pound wolf is an alarming sight, but a half-ton of enraged boar is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish. The Monasteries had no problems whatsoever with security.
This was occasionally important because:
3) White truffles retail for up to $2000 a pound.
This last fact meant that, while people with the charismatic telepathic mammals were off working as mercenaries or hunting guides, the Monks of Mycology tended to retire early and comfortably, and dedicate themselves to philanthropy, gardening, radish-collecting, or anything else that amused them, while their pigs led a pampered existence in heated sheds attached to the house.  - Ursula Vernon
