also protip if youre wearing a binder with metal fastenings in the airport you will set off the metal detector and you will get patted down once the TSA figures out what gender youre possibly supposed to be

additional protip: if you’ve given up enough on life to just be going through the backscatters in airports that have ‘em, you will be patted down every time regardless on binder type/how small your chest is. That being said, might as well skip the scanners and just get patted down anyhow…

i really really wanna be excited about the deadpool movie but wade is probs gon be one or more of the following: 

  • heterosexual
  • only scarred enough to be manly but not enough to be ‘deformed’
  • a really ableist parody of schizophrenia or
  • just an neurotypical guy who likes to ‘act crazy’ 

and i’m not all about that jazz 

also seriously now did anyone else make the mistake of watching that hideous green lantern shit i mean really now it’s hard to get much excitement over anything ryan reynolds 

Speaking of “Lessons” verse, I just watched this great film which… is shockingly reflective of how I imagined Erik and Charles’s first meeting to be like? 

I actually, AU-ridiculousness-aside, really do endorse this film. Fray is free on Amazon Prime, and pretty-much-first-time-stars Bryan Kaplan and Marisa Costa really kill it. The movie is better in the beginning and middle (where it’s more scenic and implied) and less so in any part where Justin interacts with his boss (especially during the last bits of the film, where the text gets heavy-handed, weakening the dialogue). I will admit that “veteran going back to college” might be a bit obvious for a romantic set-up… but I really do enjoy watching these two, and seeing the odd similarity with how I imagine Erik and Charles first got it on in that verse.

That being said, if you do watch this (PLEASE DO~!! just Kaplan’s performance alone is worth it, it’s one of the best film portrayals of military-based PTSD I’ve ever seen, and the interactions with a shitty terrible post-service society are IDEAL) it’s not, like… 100% how I see Lessons-verse Erik. Justin in this film is a lot more raw, I’d say… more new to being out of the service, like how I’d imagine Erik when he was still with Magda. Charles and Erik meet up later, after Erik’s actually managed to sort out his disability pay and get the gov’t to pay for his classes, so he’s able to pay for his apartment. 

They still, of course, have the awkward and stilted “I want you to live with me”/”You think you know me? You don’t know anything about me” argument featured in the film… 

It’s also available on iTunes (for $3.99), but not on Netflix, sadly. I really hope to write something more detailed about Erik’s issues (like Lessons… was more explicit about Charles) one day… 

“On the whole, people who go about sex in a way we call goal-oriented, or product-oriented, not only tend to orgasm less often, they tend to feel less satisfied with sex and their sex lives. People who tend to be more process-oriented in the sex they have, with partners and on their own in masturbation, tend to be more orgasmic and also tend to feel more satisfied.”
this article right here, a gem that I stumbled onto by accident. It’s lengthy, but contains a lovely fire analogy and is a great look at why “goal-oriented” [read: orgasm-oriented] sex and masturbation are largely counterproductive, and why it’s better to just chill out and enjoy yourself.

“When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation. But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him. Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.”
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”
