Skimmons || Buffyverse AU, Part 2
Skye spent her days training and her nights patrolling. She was getting good. Learning how to channel her strength. Figuring out how to identify threats and eliminate them. And she was having fun. She had spent her youth never quite knowing how to answer that “what do you want to be when you grow up?” question she was asked so often. She felt like she had finally found a purpose.
It all began to fade one evening. The sun was beginning to set as she stopped to grab a coffee on her way out to patrol for the night. She was standing off to the side of the counter, waiting for the barista to call her name, when a girl walked in through the alley door. Skye’s pupils dilated, her breath slowed, goose bumps rose on her arms. She didn’t think she’d ever seen a girl so beautiful. But there was something off. Skye couldn’t believe she didn’t notice it immediately. She worked hard to compose herself when she noticed the girl walking straight toward her.
Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures in Kenya , said he was astounded by what he saw:
“These three brothers (cheetahs) have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old,’ he said.
‘On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together.
‘At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily’.”
Then these scenes followed
and then they just walked away without hurting him.
DAMN, NATURE! YOU CONSIDERATE!
People are already getting excited about Halloween and by people I mean me
"tumblr is great except for…"
the neo-nazis? the violent misogynists? the white supremacists? the glorification of mass murderers? the blogs committed to telling marginalized people to commit suicide? the pedophiles?
ah, yes, clearly it’s the marginalized people trying to get rights. they are the problem here. because they’re occasionally overzealous. or something.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
“I’ll join you when Hell freezes over,” said Neville. “Dumbledore’s Army!” he shouted, and there was an answering cheer from the crowd, whom Voldemort’s Silencing Charms seemed unable to hold.
Happy 34th Birthday to a true Gryffindor and one of the bravest characters I’ve ever known, Neville Longbottom.
