heteronormativity for dummies or, “why homophobes aren’t the only problem”
You will not believe the shit I get for correcting people when they talk about my daughter like this. Just stop fucking assigning sexualities to babies jfc straight people

Preview of “The Iron Giant” toy by Mondo.
The Iron Giant Collectible Figure
The 16” tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.
The tallest statue in the world, Ushiku Daibutsu.

Hatred only breeds more hatred. Is it that hard to understand?
This needs more attention than it’s gotten.
Posts like these literally get more attention, more notes than any post about marginalized groups and lgbtq people. This whole “hatred only breeds more hatred”, while a great quote, is often a way of overshadowing and undermining real issues of power imbalance, systematic oppression, and inequality. I understand yall wanna tell people to simply not hate one another. But when I notice more white/cis/hetero people reblogging posts like these, all while never reblogging any posts about systematic racism, white privilege, transphobia, and the blatant hatred and oppression of marginalized groups, it’s easy to tell the difference between “hate breeds more hate” and “stop being angry at your oppressors”. The latter is not okay.
#seriously if you feel tempted to put ‘this needs more notes’#on something that makes oppressors comfortable#you need to really consider why you feel the need to do that#and who it’s really for (via cristakcake)
