Drink water everyday and don’t let boys be mean to you

Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.

     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

[Image: Four gifs showing John Barrowma and another man, white balding and middle aged, on a game show speaking as Barrowman asks a question and the man attempts to answer. The conversation goes as follows:

Barrowman: On a clothing label which instruction is indicated by a solid black triangle with a cross through it?

Contestant: This is where we want the women in the team back, don’t we?

Barrowman: Or maybe you could help with the cleaning of the clothes every so often.]

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

Fuck yes. I usually don’t hand out cookies to men for just saying decent things, but this time I gotta break Barrowman off a piece just for this. 

Because not only did he deny the endorsement of that sexism, but he very handily made it clear that understanding clothing labels is not some Big Secret Woman Knowledge that women have because laundry is something only women (should) do. But rather that clothing tags are on EVERYONE’S FUCKING CLOTHES and if he doesn’t know what it means it’s because of a failing on HIS part.

So yeah. Have yourself a little chunk of oatmeal raisin praise there, Barrowman. Stay sexy.

I just learned that Nichelle Nichols ad-libbed “sorry, neither” in rehearsals and they were only able to sneak it by the censors because it wasn’t in the script and—excuse me I’m overcome with happiness because my favorite Uhura line of all time was actually written by Uhura.

I will never not reblog this.

Oh that’s right, I know why: 

oh and

Thanks media. 

Ya’ll can put a tanned white girl on the cover in color, but g-d forbid someone with some melanin isn’t in black and white. whatever. 

So tired of this so called “artistic shit” they so afraid of brown and black people upsetting they precious white customers. They probably do black and white because they overexpose black people  all the time. Trying to act like it don’t matter when it comes to black people and photography.
