Steve Rogers, bisexual icon from the 50s onward-
The yellowed-with-age letters preserved at the Smithsonian (much to Steve’s embarassment) express a powerful sensuality towards men and women-
and especially touching are his correspondences with young people writing to Captain America for advice and to express admiration- a good number come from young queer kids with no one else to turn to for advice, asking for reassurance from a symbol of heroism.
Queer scholars for decades speculating about the likely homosexuality of Captain Steve Rogers from his letters and his biography- (as well as the collected letters of his friends and fellow soldiers)
Contentious scholarship rising up arguing about the controversial subject of the sexuality of Captain America and the nature of his relationship with James Buchanan Barnes-
Conservative scholars and pundits bewailing how the liberals want to pervert a national icon for their liberal agenda-
Queer people finding the Collected Letters of Steve Rogers in their library and being blown away- how did no one mention Captain America was gay? Wait wait, people think he’s straight? How do people miss this??
And queer teens buying the book used, coverless, and keeping it with them to read when they feel alone-
dog-eared pages for the correspondence between Steve and Bucky—- heart squeezing when they think about how they must have felt about eachother
Scholars and pundits all creaming themselves when Steve comes back to life- everyone wanting him to represent for their cause…
Paparazzi taking photos of him and Nat, of him and Sam- tabloid journals making insinuating references
And Steve getting asked on some TV interview if he can comment on the rumors about him and Sharon Carter and speculation that he’s ”OTHERWISE INCLINED lolol-“ (the interviewer looks smarmy and fully expecting Steve to vehemently deny such SLANDER—)
And Steve brightly (and somewhat agressively) says that he’s actually very happily in a relationship with Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, though he considers himself bisexual
And Steve and Sam getting interviewed in OUT and the Advocate-
and eloquently articulating the need for lgbtqia role models and why it was important for him to be open about his relationship and loud about asserting that he is BIsexual-
Ahhh Steve Rogers bisexual icon

How can I be both SATAN and IROH? Although I gotta say, I’m mighty chuffed at the Iroh comparison. Also Aslan. And… FREEEEEDOMMMMMMM
Wouldn’t the Ninth Doctor also be an ENFJ? And Steve Rogers? And Sansa Stark? And Daenerys Targaryen? And Kamina?

Kim Kardashian—and maybe Kim Kardashian alone—has figured out how to make a fortune on the countless hours of emotional labor most women are expected to perform for free: smiling, looking pretty, being accommodating, being charming, being a good hostess. These are the skills a celebrity appearance entails. Anyone who’s performed them knows in their bones these activities are actual labor, and I encourage those who disagree to spend three hours sitting absolutely still in makeup chair and consider further. If wearing fully-styled hair and makeup at all times were actually effortless, a lot more people would do it, and I’d quit my job and buy stock in false eyelashes. Kim Kardashian is what getting paid for “women’s” work looks like. —
I wrote about why Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is so important for Brooklyn Magazine
You know, I’ve been thinking about this “Carol’s powers are too vague for them to be fun in a film” argument, and I’m starting to see Whedon’s point:
I mean, she’s only a soldier (pilot, whatever) with super human strength who can hit things really hard like Captain America. And I mean, sure, she can can fly unaided like Thor but that’s boring and totally useless. Also, why would you want to make a movie about an alien hybrid like Peter Quill? It’s all utterly incomprehensible, which is why none of those guys have ever gotten movies either.
Kelly Sue: “Captain Marvel can punch through a fucking planet. The challenge is to put her in situations she can’t solve by punching.”
IF YOU CAN’T MAKE A FUN AND INTERESTING CAPTAIN MARVEL FILM IT’S CAUSE YOU’RE FUCKIN LAZY AND SEXIST THX BYE

Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”
i can never not reblog this
T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”
The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’
