So I was watching this gifset over and over because it was gorgeous and then I saw Sherlock mouthing these words and I couldn’t unsee it and I’m not even sorry
LIKE LOOK AT THAT SHIRT
ISNT IT GORGEOUS
I WANT IT
DUDE SAME BUT I GOOGLED AND I CANT FIND IT??? I HAVE AN URGE TO FIND IT THO
Ok, I enlarged the text, translated the little bit of French that I could read and determined that it was a snippet from Susan Sontag’s memoirs.
A quick search of Sontag and blouses and voilà.
You can find the shirt here. Unfortunately it’s out of stock, but still, I hope that helped. :)
There’s only seven days left, guys.
Seven days before my best friend in the world is homeless unless we all do something about it right this second.
Please reblog if you can but more than that now we need donations. Something, anything.
Just please, please give.
You will become a serial killer?
LOL, I haven’t ruled it out. But no, I just mean it’s become very clear who the people are who are helpful, kind, goodhearted etc. and who couldn’t give a shit about me or the people I care about.
It’s time for a purge.
This entire situation has really separated the wheat from the chaff in my life.
When this is all over, there’s going to be a reckoning.
You are probably a toxic piece of shit if you are arguing that prominent asexual representation in Doctor Who is undesirable.
You may not be a toxic piece of shit if you don’t subscribe to the reading that it already has it.
Patraxes' account of Doctor Who (like everyone’s) is based on personal selection of what material ‘counts’, wildly counter-textual readings of that material, and headcanons.
Not subscribing to that account does not constitute an act of erasure. It constitutes not subscribing to another fan’s selective and creative reading.
And when not subscribing to it is consistently framed as an act of erasure then what’s happening is that the discourse of representation is being misused as ammunition to fight the same old nerdy wars about canon and fan hierarchies. It’s toxic shit.
I love this. I love ever word of this. I grow weary of being told and seeing others told that one personal headcanon is the Alpha and the Omega of the DW universe. I’m tired of seeing well meaning fans accused of erasure or acephobia, berated, dismissed and labeled “toxic pieces of shit” all because they don’t ascribe to the theory of looms or other concepts regarding the Doctor’s gender and sexuality. It’s smug bullying cloaked in sjw bullshit. And these snide, rude responses to people who simply have a canonical difference of opinion are typically some of the ugliest things to occasionally rear their heads on my dash.
Like I said, I love this and thanks for writing it..

Sally and Sherlock used to be much closer.
One gif set and I’m suddenly shipping Shally.
LOL it’s fine. People take shit that isn’t about them waaay too fucking personally. Next thing you know you’re being called all sorts of “cunts” and “waste of cum shot” and “Uncle Tom” this and “sell out” that. Each addition to the thread more constructive than the last.
They could have gone on until the cows came home and I would have scrolled right past it on my dash. But I bristled at the batshit crazy idea that no one who was black would have this opinion. Screw that noise. And screw that great lurking monster that is the mythical Black monolith. I’m tired of that shit.
But whatever…it’s over and done with at this point and I have more more important things to worry about.
I’ve got my thesis chapter to finish.
Fargo to gear up for.
My country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it; I’m swamped.
Apparently I’m not black because a group of people on Tumblr say it can’t possibly be so!
Imagine my surprise since me, my parents and my family and friends have all been under the impression that I was for my entire life.
Boy…what will my mom say when I tell her?
"I’m going to make sure the Dancing Dolls keep it classy."
"I’m trying to teach my girls not to just be great dancers but great women." -Coach D
You do realize you just had your “dance” team mime that the other team had smelly vagina’s, right?
Yeah, it’s called mockery. I’m wondering if this is a new concept for the OP or if they’re just that deprived that they’re seeing sex in everything.
The OP clearly isn’t black. Because if they were black they would understand that when we say a woman/girl looks “stank” we don’t mean smell. It means she looks “slutty, trashy, nasty,trampish,whorish, like a total smut bitch”
So when we see a chick that looks like that, we’ll be like “Ill, she looks so stank”. That this person doesn’t know that, says they’re not black. Because they’re not black…I find them calling young black girls hood rats and ghetto, very racist and I am offended
“The OP clearly isn’t black..”
*sigh* Actually I am black. I ignored most of these replies beacuse I’d said my peace. Also the subsequent replies descended so quickly and rabidly into personal attacks it was hardly worth it. But when the idea that because I have this opinion I couldn’t possibly be black arose, I decided to jump back in.
Now, I’m quite familiar with the definition of “stank”. I know what a metaphor is and what mockery is and everything else you folks seem to think I’m a bit dim about. What you don’t seem to grasp is that there is nothing inherently or remotely classy about the move in question or 99% of the rest of the moves they do.
Also, for the umpteenth time I didn’t call the kids hood. I called the teacher hood. And so she is and so are the parents and the dance moves. The kids don’t know any better, its not their fault.
Look, Lifetime wanted a ratchet angle and they got one. I’m sure they figured this would be a good way to integrate their overwhelmingly white programming. So they did what every other network does when they want a black show, they shoot for the lowest common denominator. There are countless traditional black dance studios in this country that they could have chosen from, hell I live down the street from one.. But they didn’t want that, they wanted stereotypes in the same way that all reality television wants stereotypes. “Dance Mom’s” needed wealthy bitches who’d get into screaming matches about their kids. “Bring It” wanted hood rats who’d get into screaming matches about their kids. The dancing, on both shows, is secondary. But I’m not really worried about how white people are portrayed on TV. I do, however, get tired of black people always looking like buffoons.
And speaking of black people, we are not monolithic and as many folks as may agree with you, a casual search of “Bring It” along with “ratchet”, “ghetto”, “shameful” “embarrassing” etc. will reveal there are plenty who agree with me. And *gasp* the majority of them are black.
All that being said, watch the show, enjoy the show. It seems like its already a success because from what I heard they’re currently filming season two. If you think its great that they have terrible technique, awful stage presence and bad timing none of which is their fault, cool. If you’re fine with a show that feeds into negative stereotypes about black women, also cool. This is broad brush television, like Hear Comes Honey Boo Boo or Jersey Shore or Mob Wives or Bad Girls Club etc. etc. ad infinitum. With the exception of the kids who have no choice it’s the exploited chomping at the bit to be exploited even more. Good for them, they’re making more money than I am.
If that’s what you like, well, all of television is your oyster and ultimately, that’s on you.
Enjoy yourselves and have at it.
