SHERLOCK taught me that there is at least one person that cares about you and being smart is not a bad thing.
SUPERNATURAL taught me to carry on. That family matters, especially family not connected by blood and being brave doesn't mean not being scared and you're never in fact homeless.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie has said something wonderful about Wonder Woman.
Not only has he constantly discussed the need for more heroes of color on the big screen, he thinks we need more women too.
GeekDad.com posted an interview session they were a part of with Mackie in which the actor said he thought it was “cool” to be the first African-American superhero [on the big screen] (we’re assuming they weren’t counting characters like Blade or Spawn) [Edit: It seems the context may have just been, how does it feel to be Falcon in general, not on the big screen. That was our assumption.]. He said, “When I was a kid, I really didn’t have a person I could look at, other than my dad, and be like, ‘Hey, I want to be that guy and fly through the window.’ You couldn’t be like 7 years old and say, ‘Who do you want to be for Halloween?’ ‘Shaft!’”
He went on to say:
When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
[Edited to add: Of course we want a Wonder Woman film which is successful on all fronts but Mackie is completely right about the intent of the film beyond money making. The 1984 “Supergirl" film got terrible reviews and is always brought up when people want an example of why female superhero films don’t work but you know what? I saw that movie as a young girl and was completely obsessed. It made me love superheroes more than the Christopher Reeve "Superman" films because I could imagine myself as one. Do not underestimate the power of that impact.]
The interview also includes some adorable things like Mackie talking about his costume. “The first time I put that costume on, I couldn’t stop smiling; I was running around the room. It’s one of those moments where you just have to allow yourself to enjoy it,” he said, “I really took every moment to enjoy being a superhero.” Also read the rest for a completely believable story about how he got into trouble for signing a bunch of Falcon posters at a craft store.
I have wanted to make an animated illustration since, about, a million years ago.

The rarest of the rare: a men’s magazine advocating hairy armpits on women.
We need more of this. Personally, I shave, but that’s just cause I don’t like the feeling of deodorant on hair.
Sometimes I’ll forget to, for a day or two, and I’ll have the teensiest amount of stubble. For some reason, I’ll feel really insecure about it.
Because society teaches us that we should.
I thought I was going to rage but then it was awesome
This is wonderful.
I personally do not shave and have seen many harsh reactions, comments and discrimination for it, even had people tell me it was unnatural ( as ironic as that is). It is rare that you see magazines really come out and say that it is alright for a woman to have body hair, we have been so conditioned to view it as this gross “un-feminine ” thing when it is simply a personal choice…. shaving or not, you can still be feminine with body hair. The fact that women feel vulnerable and insecure when they have a small bit of body hair or skip a day of shaving is ridiculous, we should be comfortable with ourselves no matter what, and our community/friends/family should support our choices.
We have been so conditioned to try and alter/shove ourselves into this small un-realistic box of “beauty” that we are loosing the true beauty of ourselves and striving for the beauty of others perceptions.
And if you want to be hairy, dammit, be hairy.
It is so exceptionally hard to pull off that cartoony look, but this chick like… knocked it out of the park. Perfection.
OH MY GOD THIS COSPLAYER
seriously JUST BROWSE HER GALLERY
Hollywood: “But we can’t make the costumes look like they do in the comic books or cartoons! It’s too unrealistic!”
Hollywood: “It won’t look right!”
Hollywood: “Fans demand realism!”
Me: "YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIIIEEESSS!!!!!"
