I love tumblr.  I don’t have many followers so don’t get a lot of dashboard activity, but occasionally I will have a new follower and I’ll be so excited about my one new reader and then and then and then - I realize it’s a fake / spam account.

"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."
"But I miss them.”
"You turned them into birds, remember? It was the best you could do, given the circumstances.”
"It’s not the same."
"I know. I’m sorry."
"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"
"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."
"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"
"Yeah, that sounds better."
"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"
"I don’t see why not."
"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”
"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."
"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."
"You got it, evolution. Anytime."

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

“I’m fishing right now! This is what fishing looks like, I’m pretty sure,” she continued, cracking the thick leather fishing line like in that popular and heartwarming series of adventure movies about a wisecracking archaeologist who comically destroys countless important artifacts under the hilarious misapprehension that they belong in his museum rather than in the religious sites of the cultures that made them.

Every time Steve Rogers has sex, a bald eagle is born

No wonder they’re endangered.

Just putting out there that bald eagles are no longer endangered! And are actually multiplying at a, well, fairly impressive rate - they are now categorized as “least concern.”

NICE GOIN’, STEVE.

what an important post.

I hope we [have a Marvel moving with a female lead] sooner rather than later. But we find ourselves in the very strange position of managing more franchises than most people have — which is a very, very good thing and we don’t take for granted, but is a challenging thing. You may notice from those release dates, we have three for 2017. And that’s because just the timing worked on what was sort of gearing up. But it does mean you have to put one franchise on hold for three or four years in order to introduce a new one? I don’t know. Those are the kinds of chess matches we’re playing right now.

- Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, and literally the person with the power to make this happen, talking as if there are mysterious external forces stopping him from making a Black Widow or a Captain Marvel movie.

"We can’t just introduce a new franchise starring a woman! We’d have to put another franchise on hold and we’ve got so many of those coming up, all which JUST HAPPEN to star men. And that wouldn’t be fair to Ant Man! You don’t want to upset Ant Man, do you? Look at his tiny tiny tears."

Nothing until AT LEAST 2018, smdh.

This isn’t about the schedule, this is about the fear that only teen boys go see these movies, and the notion that they won’t go see a movie starring a woman. Amazing to watch grown men with millions of dollars and immeasurable influence at their disposal quake in fear that 14 year old boys cooties shots aren’t up to date.

What if sex work was seen as normal? She said it encourages rape by making men feel entitled to sex. Has being able to buy a piece of pie ever made you feel entitled to assault a waitress or smash a pie case to get a piece? No, this is all about her discomfort with other people having sex in ways she doesn’t approve of. But there’s no acceptable universe where her moral comfort is more important than other people’s safety.

Also, holy shit, blaming sex workers for rape. Wow.
