"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.
Before World War I, she shot a cigarette out of the mouth of the Kaiser of Germany at his request.
After the war started she sent him a letter asking for another chance, as she was afraid her aim might’ve been a little off.

WOOED THE WORD YOU’RE LOOKING FOR IS WOOED
GUESS WHOSE TAGS ARE TOTALLY GETTING REBLOGGED
Star-struck Interviewer: “You must miss the good old days.”
Steve Rogers: “I grew up in a tenement slum. Rats, lice, bedbugs, one shared bathroom per floor with a bucket of water to flush, cast iron coal-burning stove for cooking and heat. Oh, and coal deliveries - and milk deliveries, if you could get it - were by horse-drawn cart. One summer I saw a workhorse collapse in the heat, and the driver started beating it with a stick to make it get up. We threw bricks at the guy until he ran away. Me and Bucky and our friends used to steal potatoes or apples from the shops. We’d stick them in tin cans with some hot ashes, tie the cans to some twine, and then swing ‘em around as long as we could to get the ashes really hot. Then we’d eat the potato. And there were the block fights. You don’t know what a block fight was? That’s when the Irish or German kids who lived on one block and the Jewish or Russian kids who lived on the next block would all get together into one big mob of ethnic violence and beat the crap out of each other. One time I tore a post out of a fence and used it on a Dutch kid who’d called Bucky a Mick. Smacked him in the head with the nails.”
Interviewer: “LET’S TALK ABOUT THE INTERNET.”
Steve Rogers: “I love cat pictures.”

it got better
I really like this post, but I take issue with this section of the reblogged tags: #I bet that Smithsonian exhibit had to go through a hell of a revision once Steve actually saw it and was like EXCUSE ME WHAT#I bet it didn’t have a fucking thing about Gabriel Jones or Jim Morita
As someone planning to work in museums, I can tell you right now that the Smithsonian probably had to fight tooth and nail to honestly and faithfully represent the diversity of the Howling Commandos. Museums of that caliber are much like libraries in terms of providing free knowledge and are committed to accuracy and proper representation of history.
Especially given the National Air and Space Museum’s history with the Enola Gay controversy (short version: NASM was forced to cancel the planned exhibit because it focused too much on the Japanese casualties of the atom bomb and not enough on the justifications for the bomb or its role in ending the war), it’s far more likely that any erasure of Jones or Morita was caused by competing interest groups and political machinations, not by the curators, exhibit designers, or the Smithsonian Institution itself. They were probably overjoyed at Steve’s righteous anger over weakened representation of Jones and Morita and I can imagine they pulled out their original designs and asked if he could publicly announce his approval for them so they could fix what politics had wrought.

#everything about this post is golden#but YES#there’s that moment of tension from sam at the beginning of that conversation#(or at least a moment of tension i experienced)#where there’s the expectation that steve is going to say ‘yes’#and thus in the process INHERENTLY BE SAYING ‘yes i miss a time when people of your race were considered legally inferior’#AND I THINK STEVE KNOWS THAT’S THE SUBTEXT#he has that awkward little pause at the beginning before he goes on to inoffensive little things#to keep everything cordial between strangers while still making his point clear#and you know i really think that sam wouldn’t have been surprised or even particularly hurt if steve had said ‘yes’#would’ve chalked it up to him being a man out of time and forgiven him for it#even if it was the tiniest bit disappointing#BUT STEVE DOESN’T DO IT#AND SAM IS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED#AND THAT’S THE MOMENT THAT SAM IS LIKE ‘huh’ about captain america

A quick visual guide to the hymen.
good lord yes, important information for those uninformed
The incredible thing is the number of people who ignore that, and the incredible amount of people within that number who are female.
You know, fanfiction writers should realise that a certain number of young female persons are learning about their own body reading fics that always describe the loss of virginity as searing pain + litres of blood.
Are—are there really people who knowingly ignore the fact and continue to perpetuate the myth?
Really seriously though the prevalence of this narrative is really disturbing to me
guess what, your first time is NOT supposed to hurt. Jesus it’s 2014.
Every time I see a post about hymens and virginity, I need to say this and reiterate it and just make everyone understand:
your first time is not supposed to hurt
your first time is not supposed to hurt
your first time is not supposed to hurt
IT IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO BLEED FOR YOUR FIRST TIME
REASONS YOU MIGHT BLEED FOR YOUR FIRST TIME:
- Not enough lubrication.
- Not enough preparation.
- Not enough foreplay.
- Your partner is a giant dicksplash.
TIPS AND HINTS FOR YOUR FIRST TIME THAT I WISH I HAD:
- LUBE IS YOUR VERY BEST FRIEND! Yes the vagina secretes a fluid that can act as a natural lubricant but that is not enough for vaginal sex. And for some women (like myself), they do not secrete nearly enough for even penetration, let alone sex. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH LUBE.
- FOREPLAY, FOREPLAY, FOREPLAY!!! You want to be good and turned on, like super turned on, coz the more you’re aroused, the more pliant and warm your vagina is going to be, and it’s more likely to allow a dick in without tearing. Like even when you’re giving birth, doctors nowadays will actually massage the outer rim of your vagina so that everything loosens up and allows A FUCKING BABY TO BE BORN WITHOUT TEARING YOU.
- PREPARATION (WHICH IS SOMEWHAT RELATED TO FOREPLAY)!!!! If you have never had anything in your vagina before, you’re probs gonna need a couple fingers in there to help you loosen up. This can easily be tied into foreplay.
- A GENTLE, UNDERSTANDING LOVER WHO KNOWS AND RESPECTS THE ABOVE HINTS!!!! You don’t have to be in love with the person you first have sex with, but it should be someone who respects you and your boundaries!!! Before having sex with someone, explain to them these things and your masturbatory experience, your wants and needs. If they don’t respect that THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR VAGINA.
Basically it comes down to this: if your partner says “it’s normal to bleed the first time,” sit him (or her) down and talk to them about what actually happens and how it’s supposed to go. If they respect that, cool. If they don’t, fuck ‘em. Actually no, don’t fuck them, dump their ass and find someone who doesn’t subscribe to the belief that anything as lovely and intimate as your first time having sex has to hurt.
This is a basic patriarchal myth to both scare women from having sex, as well as contribute to the laziness of men in terms of making sex enjoyable for their female partners.
Sex never has to hurt. And don’t you dare let anyone tell you that it fucking has to.
If you have health problems that legitimately make vaginal intercourse hurt, there are a billion other things you can do with your partner, and you should communicate your health issues to every single partner. Again, if they respect that, rock on. If they don’t, tell them ‘adios’ and leave the bedroom.
