how about instead of a black widow movie we get a Black Widow/Hawkeye mini-series on Netflix that’s basically a combination of her new Phil Noto series and the Fraction/Aja Hawkeye book and it costs a fraction of the money for a feature film and it’s like 4 hours long and I don’t have to spend any money to see it
that works out well for everyone

Shoshana B. Roberts — who walked around New York City for 10 hours while being filmed by a hidden camera so that she could record the harassment she received from men on the street — is already getting rape threats.
Roberts’s video, which after a day online has already racked up more than 1 million views, documents the over 100 catcalls, whistles, and other forms of harassment she received over the course of the day. One persistent character walked alongside her for five minutes and wouldn’t leave her alone.
The video was produced by Hollaback, an organization dedicated to stamping out street harassment and intimidation. Last night, Hollaback tweeted:
“The subject of our PSA is starting to get rape threats on the comments. Can you help by reporting?”
The threats are still coming today. These, for instance, were posted while I was writing this article (See above photos).
“The rape threats indicate that we are hitting a nerve,” Hollaback director Emily May told Newsday. “We want to do more than just hit a nerve though, we want New Yorkers to realize — once and for all — that street harassment isn’t OK, and that as a city we refuse to tolerate it.”
The Worst Part Is That This Isn’t Surprising
Roberts’s video is so offensive because it’s so familiar. Any woman who has ever walked anywhere, especially in New York, knows the constant, terrifying din of catcalls following behind her. It’s a way men make women feel unsafe walking the streets of their own neighborhoods — and then, when challenged on it, profess innocence: “what, you can’t take a compliment?” Women quickly learn that as awful as catcalling is, they can’t respond to it. To respond is to risk being harassed more, or followed, or worse. To respond is to risk making the man who is shouting at you on the street, after dark, actually angry.
Similarly, the response to Roberts’s video is so offensive because it is, again, so familiar. Rape and death threats have become a standard response to any woman who dares to speak out on the internet about, well, anything. Look at #Gamergate. Look at Emma Watson. And there, too, to respond is to risk making it worse. When geek hero Felicia Day lamented the harassment of women in #Gamergate, her home address and other personal information was posted online. To respond is to risk making the men who are digging through your personal information and threatening to rape or kill you actually angry.
This video wasn’t made for women facing harassment. It was made for men who remain blissfully unaware of how women are treated when they walk down the street. But instead of listening, instead of taking the time to realize how women might feel when men yell at them, these commenters — backed by their anonymity and privilege — have threatened to rape Roberts for daring to talk about it.
Let’s lay this out in plain terms. Women are forced to feel uncomfortable and scared for walking down the damn street. Then, when one woman takes the time to show just how uncomfortable those interactions are, people threaten to physically assault her. If the video reminded us that women are constantly made to feel unsafe when they leave the house, the response is a reminder that women are constantly made to feel unsafe when they simply turn on their computer.
The problem here isn’t just that men are ignorant of how women are treated. The problem is that many know exactly what they’re doing to women, and will try to intimidate and silence women who try to fight back.
pick a side, clint.
those moments when straight people assume you’re one of them and you feel like a gay secret agent
it’s an ace case
FACT: When an asexual and a pansexual touch each other, skin to skin, their bodies merge into an all-powerful immortal being and they become a new god.

Exposing fckh8 (because feminists are spreading this piece of bullshit like the plague)
fckh8 do not support feminism.
Like homosexuality and so on, fckh8 does not donate a single penny to organisations they claim to support.
fckh8 are for profit.
For profit – not charitable, they are a tshirt company making money off causes and organisations that do need donations. The company admits it here
fckh8 actively denied asexuality and pansexuality. And claimed acephobia does not exist because people apparently cannot be oppressed under the law for not having sex.
because Fckh8’s customer service is absolute shite.
Because they encouraged kids to swear to forward an agenda they do not actively support – this is an advertising scam, to get you to pay $20 for a tshirt with an obnoxious and cliche phrase on them, when you could buy one from an actual charitable organisation who need the money to forward issues like homophobia, racism, ableism, and feminism.
And most importantly, charities fckh8 claims to support, do not want fckh8’s donations. Not that fckh8 were actually planning to donate.
Stop supporting fckh8, they are simply making a profit off serious causes.
They made money off the LGBT movement
They made money off Ferguson
and now, they’re making money off feminism.
And the sheer number of you buying shirts are actively enabling them to continue making money off the oppression of groups of people.
This is important everyone. Please don’t support FckH8.

Fanfic.net: The donut is the setting for a high school AU, were two sprinkles meet and realise they have more in common than they ever thought possible, however, the mean chocolate sauce has caught wind of their secret relationship. Will they be able to make it together before it’s too late? M for a lemon flavoured donut.
