In my gender studies class, I’m not allowed to say the word “homosexuality”.
What am I supposed to say? “Gayness”? That sounds insensitive and a bit childish at best and “queerness” isn’t specific enough because I’m talking about a specific person who identified a specific way.
AAaah no that’s SO alright!
I love that headcanon actually! I think I’d extend to almost all of the Teen Titans feeling relieved. his powers were a little volatile after all and while they all cared for Eddie, they almost thought he was better off you know? I mean so many of them had gone through the “i wish I was just normal” thing themselves, how could they not, in the back of their minds, feel nearly happy for him?
I feel like Zachary Zatara was the only one who saw just how much Eddie was suffering because of it. That’s why he helped him get his powers back! (I also have a lot of head canons about Zachary if you want to hear those.)
Anyway sorry this is long, and thank you for the headcanon! I love it you keep rocking!
I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
YOU ARE AMAZING AND YOU LOOK AMAZING
Never trust a person who can’t gracefully accept that they shouldn’t say certain words due to violent histories of those said words
Along with a petition to send to Marvel, supporters of an Asian American Iron Fist are sharing posts from sites like Nerds of Color and Comics Alliance, explaining why casting an Asian American actor would be a good idea for the new Netflix show.
Nerds of Color makes a good case:
“My call for an Asian American Iron Fist is not meant to displace Danny Rand from the story,” wrote Keith Chow, a contributor to the site. “It is, in fact, the opposite. In my mind, casting a young Asian American in the lead role does nothing to change his classic origin: He can still be the son of a wealthy businessman. He can still accompany his family on an expedition to seek out K’un L’un. He can still train under Lei Kung, the Thunderer. He can still seek revenge against the man who killed his father. Danny being Asian American precludes none of these things.
What does change, however, in making Danny non-white is that it removes the white savior syndrome of the original story.”
Chow goes on to add, “if Danny is Asian American, the scenes of him embracing the ways of K’un-L’un can be viewed through the lens of cultural reconnection.”
'theyre family, theyre my best friends'

#This looks pre-timeskip #I’m going to assume this is pre-timeskip #This is what I want from the middling years #I want background #I want development #I want symbiosi to be more than a half-remebered word from a high-school Atlantean class #I want it to mean remember #remember that we have been happy and whole and alive #remember that we have not always been broken#that things have been good and that we are fighting towards keeping that and towards having it again #remember that we have loved and still love you and will always love you #and that we need you #so don’t you dare go #don’t you dare give up on yourself #because your family sure as hell won’t #not even after what we’ve been through and what we’ve done #because we remember #and now you need to remember too (via rockscanfly)
what if grayson were just 50 issues of dick trying to be a spy and failing
he’s fighting off bloodhounds and they just lick his face
he goes undercover and everyone asks “hey aren’t you that wayne kid”
he fucks up every operation by announcing to the room that they’re all foul mouthed scumbags while practicing his backflips
