destroy the notion that someone’s mental health is what makes them evil.

destroy the notion that mental illnesses make bad people.

destroy the notion that you can’t be an outright awful person without being mentally ill.

A Son Comes Out to His Parents And Does Not Get a Welcome Response

Disclaimer: This video is tough to watch and has lots of adult language.

Someone set up a donation page for Daniel here. The donations will help with his living expenses since he was disowned and kicked out of his home.

A “leaked nude” is a NON-CONSENSUAL form of sexual violation and ANYBODY who participates by viewing and sharing is part of the problem.

Women’s bodies are NOT public property. We are human beings and we do not exist for other people’s sexual pleasure without our consent. Anybody with an ounce of empathy should be horrified and disgusted by this.

Let’s talk for a moment about Stoic and Valka and the PRICELESS relationship between the two of them

20 some odd years ago, Stoic and Valka lived together, got married, had a WAY THE FUCK too cute baby Hiccup. Then, dragons attacked the village and Stoic thought they had killed his beloved Valka. This fueled his life long hatred of dragons which was resolved in HTTYD 1.

20 years later, he finds that not only is Valka alive, but she chose to stay with the dragons because she felt she could not live in the village. Even for the man she loves, even for the sake of her son, because it was wrong for her, it was not where she belonged then.

And after 20 years, is he mad? Is he furious? Does he challenge her or rage or threaten?

No.

He embraces her. He mourned his wife as dead and to have her back means more than anything to him. It’s too precious a moment to let anger ruin it.

Not only that, but when Hiccup assumes his mother will return with them, Stoic explains that it isn’t that simple. Valka may not want to return. She may not want to be around other people now that she’s become so integrated with dragon culture. He embraces this as a possibility and seeks to woo her back. Not demand. Not insist. Stoic fucking WOOS her with the best show of smooth ass game I have ever seen. Reminding her that the man she fell in love with is still there and he still sees her as the Valka who danced with him once so long ago.

This is something we don’t typically see, especially from idealized male power models like Stoic. He respects her. He respects her right to make her own choices and realizes that she may still choose not to be with him!

Don’t underestimate what a significant thing this is! Too often, when situations like this crop up in movies, the male will ‘rescue’ the female, insist she return regardless of her desires, become angry with her and then regret when his anger causes her death…

You get the drift.

Just the amount of basic respect Stoic shows to Valka, not as his wife, but as person in her own right, it magnificent. This movie is the fucking highlight of my year until TH:BOTFA comes out in December!

Actual problems with feminism

- excluding POC, mogai, disabled and especially trans women

- ignoring issues that do not involve the U.S

- not realizing that feminism is for women to realize that they can do what they want and thrashing women who are feminine or wear religious attire

Not problems of feminism

- one teenage girl saying she hates men because 5 men catcalled her while walking home from school

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.
