Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

While the world has focused its attention on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, there’s another student movement gaining steam on the other side of the world.

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

In the heat of battle, photographer Horace Bristol captured one of the most unique and erotic photos of WWII.
Bristol photographed a young crewman of a US Navy “Dumbo” PBY rescue mission, manning his gun after having stripped naked and jumped into the water of Rabaul Harbor to rescue a badly burned Marine pilot. The Marine was shot down while bombing the Japanese-held fortress of Rabaul.
 “…we got a call to pick up an airman who was down in the Bay. The Japanese were shooting at him from the island, and when they saw us they started shooting at us. The man who was shot down was temporarily blinded, so one of our crew stripped off his clothes and jumped in to bring him aboard. He couldn’t have swum very well wearing his boots and clothes. As soon as we could, we took off. We weren’t waiting around for anybody to put on formal clothes. We were being shot at and wanted to get the hell out of there. The naked man got back into his position at his gun in the blister of the plane.”

I have a massive fear that no one actually likes me, rather everyone is just politely tolerating me hoping I leave them alone

my big question is why are we wasting all this money on “health care” and “education” when we could be using it to paint the moon to look like a giant floating boob

reblogging because a crow on a pole outside my window just cawed while bobbing its head a few times

what does that have to do with anything??

it was cool

I’m not okay

I’ll never be okay

but seriously, how often do you see a male main character- much less a main character of a shonen- be genuinely disappointed and angry with himself because he wasn’t sensitive and perceptive enough about a woman’s feelings? Not in a “because she’s mad now” way, but in a “I should have been there for her” way.

AND ACTUALLY CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THAT AND BECOME MORE SENSITIVE AND HONEST IN THE FUTURE?

not a hell of a lot.

It makes me want to cry because people focus on the fact that females get written so poorly because females don’t appear as much or they don’t have added depth but it’s really similar for males now too and not for the same reasons.

We as a society have run into an issue where the males that get more screen time become devalued as well and time and time again you rarely see a large amount of depth in the male characters that are written anymore because they’ve been written so much people just add a few attributes to a male and boom they have a character, nobody really takes the time to add depth anymore and growing pains and let’s us see what it’s really like to be a male in society

Yet a woman who wrote a story about two brothers that featured men far more prominently than women wrote  all of these men to perfection and added depth and realism to their development.

Even the women had a lot of development.

A woman did that, she showed us what it was really like for men like Ed who have short tempers and are very opinionated and showed us his depth and emotion.

How sad and amazing is that?

Feminisim is a fight for equality and Arakawa helped the male side of the fight exponentially by writing FMA.

It’s ok for boys to be emotional because they are, boys aren’t emotionless, they go through a lot of the same abusive issues Edward and Al went through, it’s ok to cry, it’s ok to be human.

Thank you Arakawa for opening my eyes and letting me really see what the male side of things is really like because as a female we don’t get to see that kind of depth for our male characters, people write males for females as though they’re strong and minimize their flaws and don’t give them emotion but as a female I want to get attached to a flawed male character and to this day Edward and Al are still my boys.

pretty tired of seeing this hair trope on asian characters
EDIT: because three examples wasn’t enough for some of you:


OH WOW.
Why is this a thing?


As soon as I saw this post I thought about Mei Melancon as Psylocke in X-men: The Last Stand

but really. why is this even a trope?anyone know the origin of this?

dont forget


Where did this come from?

some white guy probably said he liked it and all the rest of them were like YEAH!!!

If the asian characters fully dye their hair white people get confused that they’re supposed to be asian - see hella anime, Final Fantasy games, etc…  Or you know, any half asian character in a Marvel/DC comic transform into a full white character within 2 years…
So, just enough hair dye to show them being hip, not enough to confuse white people.
