james t. kirk + favorite lines (pt. 2)

Academy students are required to read up on every one of Jim Kirk’s missions. Janeway or Sisko or Picard or all three probably had his photo above their desk in high school encouraging them to study harder. Whole generations of Starship captains research this man’s logs for inspiration, for guidance, for understanding. For enduring nuggets of wisdom, like NO BLAH BLAH BLAH

And, imagine it, Leonard McCoy, crotchety as sin, too damn stubborn to die, watching these cadets tromp through the Academy with stars in their eyes when they walk about JIm Kirk, and all he can hear is ‘bup bup bup’

He’d laugh, cry, and then laugh some more, because damn it, Jim, you should see these kids. They make Chekov look jaded.

And yet the image we have if suffragettes is of quaint, polite old biddies.
These women were trashing shit and setting mansions on fire. Not sitting prettily asking nicely for the vote. If they had been, we wouldn’t be voting now.

At least three dead in two shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. 15-year-old boy reported to be critically wounded; police report one person was in custody; man reportedly yelled ‘Heil Hitler’ when police arrested him.

Click here for the full story and breaking developments

Reblogging again to add: 

Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug. 

A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)

I’m very sorry to those of you who don’t come to my blog expecting to see news or other horrible real world stuff. I thought it was worth putting out there.

Also the shooter is a former KKK Grand Dragon

KNITTED MINI SKIRT

Another super easy pattern to knit guys!

This beautiful mini skirt is a fantastic project to knit, I had lots of fun just thinking how I could put together an outfit using my mini skirt. I think it looks great for a night out with cool tights and a leather jacket, or for a casual occasion with a basic top and tights… these are just 2 examples but really there’s endless ways to style it!

I used 3 different knitting patterns, the seed stitch, smocking stitch and rib stitch.. all classic, all easy to knit, I promise you’ll have no problem knitting this project!

As always the pattern is free, and I’ll be posting it later on this week!

Love this!

Though a lack of comma in the opening sentence took me somewhat funny places in my mind.

LBR, I would love to have a guy knit me this skirt, though it would involve divulging my measurements, so…

Current song obsession of the week! I’m in love with Big Data and 1.0, their first EP (she said redundantly). If the sounds of Skrillex and co. are the futile protests of a hard drive as it is it horribly violated, Big Data offers sweet, consensual love-making. (That metaphor got a little bit away from me…)

Instead of rejecting guys by awkwardly telling them I’m not interested,
I’m going to start telling them they can date me only if they bring me a Silmaril from Morgoth’s throne.

In Quenya?

Á colë nin Silmarillë Moringoþo mahalmallo. Bear to me a Silmaril from Morgoth’s throne.(Or Moringotto for those who don’t keep þ.)

Thank you so much

I’m gettin’ reaaaal tired of finding these schmucks on my doorstep, trying to get my Silmarils off me to impress their dates. Dungeons are overflowing as it is, and the werewolves are starting to look a little rotund. 

How about you tell them to, I don’t know, climb to the top of Taniquetil and steal Manwë’s knickers or something?

"Well, let me just put a stop to this shit right now. You can give me gold-plated day care and an awesome public school right on the street corner and start paying me 15% more at work, and I still do not want a baby. I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter how much free day care you throw at women, babies are still time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness. No matter how flexible you make my work schedule, my entire life would be overturned by a baby. I like my life how it is, with my ability to do what I want when I want without having to arrange for a babysitter. I like being able to watch True Detective right now and not wait until baby is in bed. I like sex in any room of the house I please. I don’t want a baby. I’ve heard your pro-baby arguments. Glad those work for you, but they are unconvincing to me. Nothing will make me want a baby.

And don’t float “adoption” as an answer. Adoption? Fuck you, seriously. I am not turning my body over for nine months of gaining weight and puking and being tired and suffering and not being able to sleep on my side and going to the hospital for a bout of misery and pain so that some couple I don’t know and probably don’t even like can have a baby. I don’t owe that couple a free couch to sleep on while they come to my city to check out the local orphans, so I sure as shit don’t own them my body. I like drinking alcohol and eating soft cheese. I like not having a giant growth protruding out of my stomach. I hate hospitals and like not having stretch marks. We don’t even force men to donate sperm—a largely pleasurable activity with no physical cost—so forcing women to donate babies is reprehensible."

The Real Debate Isn’t About “Life” But About What We Expect Of Women | The Raw Story (via brutereason)

"So, reading those three paragraphs above? I bet at some point you recoiled a bit, even if you don’t want to have recoiled a bit.  Don’t I sound selfishHedonistic? Isn’t there something very unfeminine about my bluntness here? Hell, I’m performing against gender norms so hard that even I recoil a little.

This is actually what I think, and I feel zero guilt about it, but I know that saying so out loud will cause people to want to hit me with the Bad Woman ruler, and that causes a little dread. Why do we feel this way?

What kind of training and socialization did we receive that made us think there’s something terribly wrong about a woman who is hurting no one and is actually pretty nice but wants what she wants in her private life and doesn’t apologize about it? Is there a reason that we should bully women into pretending that they’re more interested in being selfless and eternally nurturing than they actually are, even at great cost to themselves?”

Can I stop now? Are we good?

Honestly, I’m caught between crying laughing and the sheer level of information, competence and…can lists have sass? Because even before I got to the comment, the SHEER SIZE of the list possessed like, epic levels of sass, GIANT levels of sass, the dry, ordered, gazing-at-you-calmly-while-breaking-your-desk-with-reference-material-and-endng-by gently-overturning-a-box-of-loose-pages-of-information-over-your-head levels of sass, and wanting to get medievalpoc an ice pack and some anti-inflammatories for the amount of typing this work of art called for.  

And a tiara.  Because medievalpoc RULES.
