I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loathe Ronald Reagan.
men get mad at women being able to sense creepiness because it means we’ve gotten so good at surviving that we can see through their bullshit without even knowing them

Mako hasn’t heard anything back from any of the other workers, especially not her coworkers. Newt, typically the loudest loudmouth, has yet to say anything more than “How’s Hu doing?” in a sing-songy voice. That she could deal with. Maybe they are nervous, given there are three asskickings they might be courting if anything bad was said about her.
(a fic where Mako Mori is dating all of the Wei Tang triplets, Hu is trying to be the cool boyfriend, Cheung is a little shy and head-over-heels, Jin is asexual, romantic and hiding both, Stacker Pentecost is not quite approving it, and no one says anything bad about it.)
thor is always running into little kids who are thrilled to meet him - he doesn’t really understand the concept of signing autographs, but he starts carrying asgardian toys around in his pockets to give to kids he meets (much to shield’s chagrin - how are we supposed to keep alien tech under control when the god of thunder is giving out magnetic propulsion toys to five-year-olds?)
but one day, he meets this girl who’s nine, maybe ten, and she runs up to him all misty-eyed and immediately asks him if he knows jane foster
and her mother’s embarrassed because “honey, that’s thor, aren’t you excited to see thor?” but the girl just explains that she wants to be a scientist when she grows up, and that jane foster is the astrophysicist (she pronounces the word carefully, as if she’s been practicing) who found out how the rainbow bridge worked - isn’t that so cool? she read about it in kids discover and they watched a documentary in school and dr. foster was in it and it made her think that maybe because she likes planets so much she could be a scientist, too
and thor smiles broadly and tells her that wanting to be a scientist is a noble dream, and he says “if your mother would be willing, i could introduce you”
and that’s how jane foster ends up with a tiny science geek in pigtails trailing around behind her in her lab, asking how everything works. jane can’t really comprehend the fact that a kid would want to meet her, but she likes explaining things and she looks at this girl and can’t help seeing herself. thor is just fucking delighted because to him the idea of jane being a child’s hero makes perfect sense, why wouldn’t it? she’s jane
and years later the girl grows up to be an astrophysicist or an astronaut or an aerospace engineer and she never forgets the time that dr. jane foster knelt down beside her and said, don’t let anybody stop you from chasing the stars, if that’s what you want
jane foster inspiring girls in science, y/y
did tumblr turn off my xkit somehow? ._.
just going to say it, Live From Satellite 5’s discussion today about meddling with a younger version of someone you know in their timeline reminds me why I am excessively wigged out by people who reblog both sexy fanfic/art of fandom characters but also weirdo baby/children/child-rearing/babysitting stuff of the SAME CHARACTERS
Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor
Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.
repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit
