I don’t think people give Flash enough credit.…………….my goodness
He didn’t just rebuild an apartment building.
HE LEARNED HOW TO BUILD AN APARTMENT BUILDING. HE DID RESEARCH. IT TAKES SEVERAL YEARS TO LEARN ALL THE ENGINEERING AND LEGAL CONSTRAINTS OF BUILDING A BUILDING AND HE JUST DID IT.
This is one of my favorite flash comics. It really highlights how the flash doesn’t just run really fast, but can do absolutely astounding things. I remember reading this for the first time and having my head explode.
Flash is actually really freaking awesome.

Barry Allen is a sweetheart
representation fucking matters.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED GOOD, REAL REPRESENTATION OF MINORITIES IN KIDS SHOWS AND FILMS, SO THEY CAN HAVE SOMEONE TO RELATE TO. THIS IS SO SO FUCKING IMPORTANT.
RE: Fiction Week, I’d like to say that I recently watched the Avatar: The Last Airbender series and I not only enjoyed it very much, I came away from it with a vague yet profound sense of well-being. It’s extremely well-written Epic/High Fantasy based in Indigenous and Non-Western cultures and mythology.
Eclosión de raya de cola corta (Sympterygia brevicaudata) La cápsula desde donde salió es un huevo, se encuentran normalmente unidas a algas, corales o estructuras resistentes, es una carcasa que rodea los huevos fertilizados de algunos tiburones pequeños, rayas y quimeras. Tiene aberturas pequeñas (hendiduras respiratorias) donde entra y sale el agua, por lo que el embrión puede respirar sin problemas …

In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”
Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.
Working with children for over a decade, this is something I’ve noticed, actually. And for the majority, the little girls in my class and my co-worker’s classes all sit quietly and listen MUCH better than the boys do. Most boys don’t care to be quiet and sit still. And I don’t think this is an attribute of boys being “rowdier” or more “hyper” - believe me, the girls are JUST as off the wall as the boys if you aren’t telling them not to. It must be a learned behavior, and it must be enforced more with the girls so they know they can’t get away with it. You have no idea how many times in my career I’ve heard “boys will be boys,” and smiling parents as they tell me with a laugh, sorry, their son is “wild” and a “handful” as they introduce him to the class.
And that’s how you do sexism. That’s how it’s so effectively trained into every single citizen and indoctrinated as normal and right.
Mhmm… Other adults used to compliment my parents on how i was such a quiet polite little girl… I had many social difficulties growing up and it was pretty hard for me to live on my own at first, to make friends and to take care of important things that had to do with interacting with strangers. I had to unlearn a lot of things which I am still trying hard to do. :/
this is something that struck me so clearly when i left women’s college to go to co-ed graduate school. i remember being in my first seminar and thinking “why do these guys think they can just talk whenever they want, who cares about their opinion” and getting so many compliments from girls in my classes about how good i was at talking in class. it’s crazy to see how instilled these communication rules are in adults
Sex positivity means many things, but it does not mean that all sex is positive or enjoyable.

I’m in tears…the turn out!
don’t use uteruses as symbol for feminism ok
- you’re excluding trans women
- you’re including some trans men
- you’re excluding cis women who may not have a uterus because they’ve lost it because of or to avoid #cancer
stop doing this it’s so gross
This is one criminally underrated Batman villain.
This. This episode fucked me up as a child, because it was the first time I’d seen my pain in the eyes of a sympathetic (if criminal) character.
There I am…
But it’s not really real, Is it?
Just made up and pretend like my family and my life and everything else.
Why couldn’t you just let me make believe?
I cried for an hour after seeing this the first time, as a scared little trans girl who suddenly had the world snapped into horribly real focus for a few minutes by a damn cartoon.
Baby Doll will always be my favorite Batman villain.
