I heard they got Angelina Jolie playing Cleopatra in some new movie. I know Black Twitter and Black Tumblr is not gonna be happy.

Hello no I’m not happy they should at least get someone with darker skin, but all Hollywood ever tries to do is sell movies and not a story

yeah thats some bullshit but nobody on planet earth should be surprised by this

like at all 

I wonder how people would react if Idris Elba played King Henry viii? or Vivica A. Fox played Queen Elizabeth? Right, they’d never let that happen. SMH. Cleopatra was not white!

"that’s my cousin."

— Usually said for a person that is not your cousin, but is like family, or considered relative. May also genuinely just be a cousin (via blackproverbs)

Unicorns and Thestrals were never really intended to meet, one herbivorous and noble, one carnivorous and seen only by those who’d witnessed death. Of course that made the first hybrid no less beautiful.
(another by the lovely essayofthoughts; this is short and sweet and yet full of weird promise, just the way I like it.)

Ezra-Selene Selwyn had never much cared for the gender-binary. They’d announced this at the dinner table, aged eight, and the statement, so adult from a childs mouth, had finished the argument over whether they were to wear the ruffled or the lace-edged robes to the Notts winter ball.
Mr. and Mrs. Selwyn had quickly helped them pick out a name and Ezra-Selene loved to play with it, some days just Ezra, some days just Selene, some days neither, some days both. They/them were always preferred.
Their younger brother Silas was at first confused but quickly grew to understand that all people were their own and, provided they could wield a wand, who was to argue with their perception of self? (They were something of a blood-purist family after all. There were some traditions there was no escaping.)
But Ezra-Selene grew up remarkably well-adjusted for a child of a Dark family and was sorted into Ravenclaw where they thrived. When Voldemort rose in Britain however Ezra-Selene fled. They had seen too much of the Muggle-Grindelwald’s antics on the continent, heard of those outside the norm like themselves bundled away into camps and never heard from again. It scared them.
Ezra-Selene fled to America and joined the southern wixes, living in the mountains and the prairie and minding herds of winged horses and unicorns. They quite liked the stories of the muggle cowboys and decided to buy a gun. You could never be too careful – a protego might deflect spells, a stupefy might stun the enemy but a gun dealt with them, and no shield yet devised could deflect a hard metal bullet.
They became well known over time. The first of the mage-riders to wield a gun, tucked into a holster right beside their wand, the first to prove its usefulness. Ezra-Selene was never proud of it. But they did so love people not forgetting their pronouns for once, even if they did stutter slightly when asking for an autograph.
(Image One from Here. Character is an invention for a Fic I (essayofthoughts) am writing, do say if you perceive Ezra-Selene as potentially problematic)

Forget the spreadsheet, here’s an easy flowchart to know if a women owes you sex

Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.

The Times of Israel already deleted one post calling for genocide. Now a new one has been posted by another one of its bloggers, Irwin E. Blank, in which he compares Palestinians to the biblical enemies of the Jews, the Amalekites, and calls for them to be utterly destroyed “even if that means to the last child.”

In case this one gets taken down, here’s the pdf version of it.

No wonder they need to pay people to make Israel look nice, holy crap look at this stream of racist genocidal trash.

Zionism is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

One chart says it all about the government and female bodies 

We’re only halfway through 2014, and state legislators have already introduced a whopping 468 restrictions intended to limit, control or otherwise regulate women’s reproductive rights.
How many comparable bills have been introduced to regulate men’s reproductive health care during this period? Zero. 
Something’s very wrong with this picture.
What would restricting male reproductive rights even look like? | Follow micdotcom

it’s funny how if you’re not straight, the assumption is always that you like men

like

bisexual male: YOU’RE SECRETLY JUST GAY AND WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN

bisexual female: YOU’RE JUST FAKING IT FOR MALE ATTENTION

gay male: YOU’RE ONLY GAY BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T HAVE A GOOD MALE ROLE MODEL IN YOUR LIFE

gay female: YOU’RE ONLY A LESBIAN BECAUSE YOU WERE HURT BY MEN IN THE PAST AND NOW YOU HATE THEM

like did it occur to you at any point that it’s not always about men
