Alexander Siddig as Doctor Strange.
That’s it. That’s the hill I’m gonna die on. 

GIVE IT TO ME

Yesssssssss

I would NOT object to that. 
(I feel there has been a progression of attractiveness with Siddig that’s gone from “you are somewhat odd looking in an earnest way” lukewarmness to “damn, you look like your uncle when he was young and hot” appeal to “and now you are attempting to compete with the sun and that’s just not fair!” levels.)

yeah, I could get behind this casting too. 

Okay, I will now accept Oded Fehr OR Alexander Siddig.  But right now, only those two.

Alexander Siddig as Stephen Strange is literally the only way I’m going to care about Stephen Strange.

Pizza Cake May Soon Be A Thing In Canada

This sounds like a great idea until you realize the bottom will be soggy and gross.

This… makes me feel a little nauseated, tbh?

  • men get into something not aimed at their gender: get special titles like "brony." recognition by creators. heralded for defying gender appeal. get documentary.
  • women get into something not aimed at their gender: not real fans. probably secret friend zone warriors deadset on erasing men from the human race. get insulting demeaning memes and sexual harassment.

It’s quite revealing that the only time MRAs ever mention male rape victims is to make a straw-man argument that feminists don’t care about them.

Well…do you care about them?  All we see is the definition of rape changing to more men-women rape, men not being able to be raped legally in some countries (e.g. UK), and little to no funding going to help these victims.  All the while the feminist community is silent on the issue and spewing false statistics about how “95% of rapists are men”,

I can’t speak for any country outside the US, as that’s where I am, but my response is this:

Firstly, in January 2012, it was the Obama administration, backed by several feminist-supported organizations like RAINN who work on behalf of ALL rape survivors, that officially changed the definition of rape to include male and non-gender-binary people as victims.

"The old definition — “the carnal knowledge of a female, forcibly and against her will” — covered only forcible penetration of a woman’s vagina by a penis, and excluded many other kinds of sexual assaults that count as rape under more modern definitions.

For example, the outdated definition did not count forcible anal or oral penetration, the penetration of the vagina or anus with an object or other body part, the rape of a man, or the rape of a woman by another woman.

It also did not cover nonconsensual sex that does not involve physical force — like the rape of people who are unable to grant consent because they are drugged, very drunk or younger than the age of statutory consent in their state, a number that varies across the country.” (2)

The new definition was“The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”
Those fighting against this redefinition and broadening of the definition of rape were not feminists.  Feminist groups vehemently fought for expanding the definition to one that included male or non-binary victims, female or non-binary perpetrators, instances like date rape, statutory or unconscious rape, AND the use of objects other than a penis as a tool for rape. 

Those against this redefinition were generally conservative groups and Republican politicians. 

In other words, anti-feminists. 

The reason why GOP members were against redefinition bill was not about rape at all.  They were afraid that broadening the definition of rape would make abortion more accessible to victims of all types of rape, not just “forcible” or “legitimate” rape as they so-descriptively called it.  These conservatives didn’t care about helping male victims, punishing female perpetrators, or modernizing how we deal with rape at all.  They cared about making abortions harder to access, at the expense of rape victims.  They threw all victims of rape under the bus, including men and trans* folk.  That is the true meaning of anti-feminist.

So there’s that.

Also, I don’t know where you get your statistic about feminists claiming that 95% of rapists are male.  If you could source, that would be great.  When doing my own research, I found that the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics states that 91% of rape victims are female and 9% are male, and 99% of rapists are male.  That means that the majority of those that rape men are also men. (1)

ALSO: I have seen this post that links to organizations that provide support for male victims floating around on feminist blogs.  Not MRA blogs, not conservative ones.  Feminist blogs.

So quit your straw-manning.

Damn it. I thought I had taken an antihistamine like three hours ago, but I’m sneezing like crazy and now I’m not sure. Do I tough it out or take a(nother?) pill and fall asleep over brunch? Ugh.

As hauntingly awesome as this would be, I very strongly doubt that The Winter Soldier was brought out of cryo to create a car accident. An organization that has SHIELD agents, US Senators, and members of the WSC on its payroll almost certainly has a couple of mechanics and/or police officers. There’s no reason that they would pull the best asset out into the field for a mission as basic as this.
(Besides, who wants to bet that Obie was, if not a member of HYDRA, at least aware of their intentions re: Howard and Maria, and was their inside man? I’ve got my money on that.)

I actually have a major headcanon for that.  I don’t think Obie was HYDRA tied, I think he was their tool, but I don’t think he was aware of it.  Basically he was being manipulated while he was manipulating.  Because I agree, the Winter Solider wouldn’t have been sent for a brake job.

Yes, that’s my theory too. I mean, if HYDRA was as omnipresent as it is implied in Cap2, they would definitely have picked Obie out as someone they could use/ally themselves with. Obie had no problem killing one Stark, why not two more? Hell, maybe Obie did the actual brake job himself! He seemed to have a working knowledge of mechanics, and that would suit HYDRA perfectly. Let someone else do the dirty work.

I agree with ALL OF THIS

Portrait I drew of the lovely Maggie Smith.

I am getting this framed and hung over my fireplace goddamn.

Same.

I’m going to frame this and hang it up and if someone asks me who it is I’ll tell them she’s my ancestress.

Anybody using Chrome latest release with the HTTPS Everywhere extension: are you also having broken-Tumblr problems since the 2014.4.16 release? I’m having problems with I think every (probably/maybe) JavaScript click event (e.g. embiggening of pictures, Liking and Reblogging) being flatly ignored, but the problems vanish when I deactivate the extension. o.O
