I reblog fandom stuff, archaeology stuff, marine biology stuff, and sometimes paleontology stuff. I provide very little original content, although I used to write fanfic and hope to do so again someday. My fandoms include Stargate SG-1, Firefly, Buffy, Roswell, Star Trek, Doctor Who, X-Files, Warehouse 13, Terminator, Marvel Comics, Dark Angel, Babylon 5, and basically every other sci-fi or fantasy show that exists.
“Guy approved” is nothing special. Who fucking cares.
Only the naive deny that constructs like this actively shape society.
Are we seriously still doing this gender bullshit? Are your interns 50 years old? Is that why their sensibilities reflect 1983 instead of 2013?
This is some really harmful thinking that seems innocent and fun, but it actually plays into bad stereotypes. Why can’t guys watch any romantic movies? Well that’s because those things are feminine! And feminine things are bad! It’s shameful for men to like things that aren’t masculine!

Thirty six years ago today, Affirmed made his debut at Belmont Park. Sent off at double-digit odds, the chestnut colt went right to the front and kept going. Not surprisingly, gamblers never saw anything close to those odds again! The Harbor View Farm homebred, that year’s two-year-old champion, would go on to be a Triple Crown winner and two-time Horse of the Year for trainer Laz Barrera.
do you ever just listen to someone’s problem and you have nothing to say except “I’m sorry” because there is literally no way for you to help and you get sucked into a vortex of guilt and despair because you are useless
Most people need to be heard as much if not more than they need someone to just swoop in and fix things. While everyone needs a rescue sometimes, most times it’s better for folks to fix things themselves, and no advice really is better than bad advice just to fill silence. So go with “I’m sorry” and active listening, and ease up on feeling guilty. There will be plenty of chances to help people whose problems you’re actually qualified to fix.
