Fact: Pansexuals are greedy. Even greedier than their bisexual sister species. It is very common for a pansexual to hoard sexual partners like a dragon hoards treasure. An unrelated fact: Pansexuals are dragons.

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

people at school are always like “wow you can cook?? that’s awesome!!” but literally all i really do is just take a pan, put some oil in it, put some vegetables in it maybe some beans or tofu if i’m feelin crazy and then saute it and then cover it in garlic powder

You can learn a lot of things from the flowers, for especially in the month of June. There’s a wealth of happiness and romance, all in the golden afternoon.


Pure genius

isnt Cytosine-buckaroo the outspoken xenophobe that misgendered someone with apology or even getting lash-back


and his family’s fortune came almost entirely from the slave trade

he is an all-around nasty human being

But that wasn’t him, that was his ancestors…. My ancestors went to war and killed people in cold blood but that doesn’t mean I did o-o

did your ancestors profit from selling and oppressing other human beings?? and is your family STILL rich off that shit? and did your mom specifically say to you “no honey, don’t use your real name when you get successful, or the ancestors of the people that our family sold into slavery might come looking for compensation or something and wouldn’t that be a bother tho”

probably not


Piero della Francesca: Augustinian Nun (1454)

Before John Green, his general category of realistic (non-fantasy) YA was rife with teen angst and “issues” fiction that you might have associated with the legendary Judy Blume, or with newer writers like Sarah Dessen or Laurie Halse Anderson. Anderson’s classic 1999 novel Speak, about a high schooler struggling to deal with the aftermath of sexual assault, was so influential that three years later Penguin launched an entire imprint named after it. One of the books launched under the behest of Speak was Green’s Looking for Alaska. But it’s Green whose name you’re more likely to know today, not Anderson’s, although Anderson has won more awards and written more books.

On Twitter, Green has 2 million followers. Compared to the rest of the leaders in Young Adult fiction, that number is staggering. To approach even half the Twitter influence of John Green all by himself, you need an entire army of YA women. Anderson, Blume, Dessen, Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, Rainbow Rowell, Maureen Johnson, Malinda Lo, Holly Black, LJ Smith, Ellen Hopkins, Shannon Hale, Lauren Myracle, Libba Bray, Melissa Marr, and Leigh Bardugo: As a group these women only have about 1.2 million followers on Twitter.

That’s the voice of one man outweighing several decades of women who have had major successes, critical acclaim, and cultural influence.

"Young Adult Publishing and the John Green Effect" (via delicatedad)

When a man succeeds in a devalued (because of its association with women) field, he legitimizes it in popular opinion.

On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered

A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered

The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90 

The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old

Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
