I like DC characters; I just hate DC

I'm Amy, a white queer atheist vegetarian cis female physics major. I spend most of my time fangirling Connor Hawke, Jason Todd and Cassandra Cain. This blog is sex-positive, body positive, QUILTBAG positive, anti-racism, anti-misogyny, anti-ableism, anti-oppression in general, anti-whatever fuckery DC is pulling now, and pro-Missing-E. Check out http://daggerpen.livejournal.com/tag/fanfiction for my fics. I have SPD and a migraine disorder, so please tag for flashing lights, general trigger warnings, and, just as a personal "I'm tired of seeing scans from these shitty arcs" thing, tag for Fabian Nicieza and Grant Morrison, as well as the issue numbers of the arcs in which they both butchered Jason's characterization.
I am likewise willing to tag for anything. I do my best to tag for anything that might generally be a problem for someone, but if I'm posting something you need to Savior, just drop me an ask and I'll do my best. Thanks to Tumblr user dimethyloctopus for the icon. Check out the full version here: http://dimethyloctopus.tumblr.com/post/48569979761/cass-cain-redesign-kinda


So a white cis man gets an oscar for portraying the role of a trans woman, but an actual trans woman of color playing a trans woman of color, advocating for the rights of trans people gets left off a list of “influential” people even after having one of the highest approval ratings of anyone in the poll.

i honestly hate “what if we lived in a world without technology” prompts because i can give you a few examples and generally they all end in dying from lack of medicine and hard labor

I know Falcon’s suit is going to evolve and I’m hoping it evolves into red spandex,” he said. “I’ve been working really hard on my body and was very disappointed when I didn’t get a copious amount of spandex to wear while shooting this movie.



Black Bat flower!


This ornamental flowering plant is among the showiest of the Tacca chantrieri  plant family (part of the yam family).  Common names are Black Bat Flower, Bat Head Lily, Devil Flower, Cat’s Whiskers and Tacca chantrieni.

Originally the Black Bat flower plant grew and still does grow wild in the tropical forests of Yunnan Province, in South China. Even prior to blooming, it resembles sleeping bats hanging downward from their roost.

what!!! WHAT!!!!

bucky and steve spend so much time making fun of sam for being a slow runner that they jog straight into the elaborate traps natasha had set up 4 hours earlier. natasha drives off with sam while bucky and steve are left to contemplate their mistakes in life.

I love how my physics textbook decides that torque due to a magnetic field is so fucking special it needs to be called N even though like every other fucking torque is just T or tau, yet when we have a normal vector and a polarization vector, those being completely separate things referenced in the same context, the book decides they both really need to be called n
