He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

What do you think existed first, the goblin king, or the desperate need to make girls into villains?
Sarah (which is the girl’s name, by the way) said something a bit mean-spirited after her father and stepmother dumped responsibility for her baby brother on her without asking her first. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the goblin king didn’t have to do shit; he’s the fucking king, and he took Toby out of pure spite, a desire to toy with her. Perhaps you’re not familiar with English folklore and its obsession with pretending women are always to blame. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky - and just because they never break the rules doesn’t mean that they’re not bad guys.

Let me get this straight, Nicki Minaj can wiggle her butt six ways till Sunday and people can call her a black feminist messiah, but when there's a weak-ass Spider-Woman variant cover that make her look like she's posing like Nicki Minaj, it suddenly NOT okay and Marvel should be ashamed??? I'm honestly, seriously confused here :/

Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor

Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.

repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit

BLESS THIS POST

Kids are super confused because we tell them to share toys but the media won’t let them.

If I wanted to just be “prepared for the real world,” I could have gone to a technical school. Instead we’re paying $60k per year (and more every semester) to be treated like a problem by the administration. I feel lied to and victimized by my own school.

beautiful photo, heartbreaking message.

Wow fuck you Lawrence. I briefly thought you were OK.(Incidentally if anyone was wondering, “we’re preparing you for the real world” as a justification for mistreatment by authority figures is one of the things I loathe most in this world)

it’s right up there with “that’s just the way things are” as a lazy and false justification for unexamined, reprehensible behavior.

Stupid Lies About Vaginas, The G-Spot Special!

victoriadahl:

Gaaaaaaaaaaaah. I’ve seen the debate about the G-Spot many, many times.

It’s the best thing ever, you just have to find it and you’ll come sparkle juice forever!

NO! It’s not real! You’re not feeling anything but a lie perpetuated by men and the media!!!

The latest round is at Salon. The Truth About the G-Spot: Why It’s Time to Put This Sex Myth to Bed.  Sex myth! It’s a fantasy! Ha! Stupid women thinking they have a part they don’t have. 

The Salon piece starts right off with the answer. “Once lauded as a “magic button” and the ultimate female pleasure enhancer, an Italian scientist’s recent report claims once and for all that the controversial G-spot is nothing but a myth (with a really good PR campaign).”

It’s nothing but a myth, ladies! There’s the answer right there. You probably just needed to pee. Duh. 

Oh, but then if you keep reading, the answer changes. “Of course, it has been documented that women can and do experience heightened sensitivity when the upper vaginal wall is stimulated, so it’s not like science is outright snubbing the walnut-sized spot. Rather, the study points out that female pleasure and orgasm are more all-encompassing than previously thought, and that sensitivity exists simultaneously throughout the CUV and not just in one tiny area. Or, if you prefer your sexual science served with a Facebook analogy, “It’s complicated.””

It’s complicated.

And then… “But he also notes that women who experience heightened pleasure around the G-spot area aren’t crazy or making it up. Indeed, biopsies of vaginal wall tissue have shown that in some women, there are more nerve endings in the purported G-spot than in surrounding areas…” Oh, thanks for the fucking shout-out. Maybe it’s not all in your head.

Breathe a sigh of relief, chicks, because “it’s been documented.” Whew! We did studies to be sure you were really feeling that sensation some of you told us you were feeling. *head pat*

Jesus Christ on a Cracker. 

Let’s break it down, shall we? Here’s what the clitoris actually looks like: 

image(Image from this super great clit article at io9)

That entire yellow thing that wraps around the urethra and vagina? That’s ALL CLIT. It’s not a tiny nub. It has wings of power!!!!! It swells up during arousal and causes all sorts of funny feelings down there!

So there is a whoooollllle lot of nerve action going on during sex and it’s all wrapped up with your vagina and urethra and vascular system. Some areas may be exceptionally sensitive in one woman and nothing but a twinge in another, depending on the thickness of her vaginal walls or the amount of pressure or just what feels good to her. (Strange, but there might be a lot of women who just don’t like motherfuckers finger-poking their vaginal walls.)

Hey, I have an idea. Let’s see what Jezebel has to say about it in the helpfully titled You’re Never Going To Find Your G-Spot Because It Doesn’t Exist.  ”What the scans revealed was that the brain did show increased activity in the sensory cortex when the area where people believe the G-spot is was stimulated. So something is going on down there. There is no one “spot,” but there is a region that is especially sensitive. Dr. Barry R. Komisaruk, who did the brain scan study, thinks it’s all in how we term it: “It should be called the G-zone or G-area.”“

Oh, Sweet Lord of Female Pleasure, are you telling me this shit is all a semantics game? You’re telling women who have actually had G-spot orgasms that they are imagining everything, and then you say “I mean, it’s really a G-area, you ignorant bitches.” 

Someone get me a drink. 

So here’s the thing. There are, in fact, a ton of nerves in that area, and, in some women, a palpable little lump and extra nerve endings. For some women, manually stimulating that area magnifies her orgasm. For some women, stimulation of that area alone can bring on an orgasm. For other women, not so much. No one is imagining anything. It’s not a myth, it’s just a possibility. 

The only thing complicated about it is that it’s about women’s bodies, and we all know women’s bodies are mysterious and tricksy and always causing trouble by being individual, just for fun. Some women love nipple stimulation. Some women can come from it. Some don’t want them touched at all. ARE NIPPLES REAL? Let’s do a study. 

Even better, why don’t we do a bunch of scientific studies to find out if men really like a little ass play during orgasm. Because, you know, some men don’t. And some do. And there’s not actually an organ called the A-spot, it’s just that the prostate is right next to the ass wall, and some men claim that their orgasms are more intense when you press on it. Oh, but some men don’t want any part of it and it doesn’t turn them on. IS THE A-SPOT EVEN REAL??? ARE MEN IMAGINING IT???

I’d push for a study, but the truth is that it would probably be called "Jane’s boyfriend likes it when she sticks her finger up his ass, but my boyfriend hates it. Is my feminine odor to blame?" So let’s just carry on without it. 

In conclusion, find out what makes you come and do it. It’s not a myth, ladies, it’s a fucking area

In case you want more of me, you can find  Stupid Lies About Vaginas Part 1 here,  and Stupid Lies About Vaginas Part 2 here!

And P.S., I’m happy there is finally research going into female pleasure, but we need to get so much better at talking about it. 

Wow, they really were sensationalizing the crap out of a stupid semantics argument. And it’s not like this topic hasn’t been covered by other studies before. I remember that in She Comes First they call it the Clitoral Cluster, and have diagrams that show all the nerves that extend out from the clitoris and where they reach. “In conclusion, find out what makes you come and do it” is pretty much the takeaway from both.
