So I was wondering if anyone else was aware of this but if you hold ”Z” + “C” (“alt” + “C” for mac) this comes up so you can literally post something while you’re in the middle of your dash and you won’t have to open a new tab or go back to the top.

Holy fucking shit tumblr developers did something actually useful
^and failed to mention it to their users, rendering it useless until accidentally discovered by a toddler

It’s that time again. Michael’s seems to understand my needs.
I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
Boo for people who need to be dicks to black cosplayers.
And yay for Jay Justice for being amazing and awesome.

A headache so strong you can sense Lord Voldemort.

drewcifercdxx submitted this photo with the comment “I’m somewhat of an elder goth, as evidenced by my Robert Smith shirt. I’m up a dogwood, in an old cemetery. It was the middle of the day, that’s why I had it shot in black and white.”
At what age do you become an eldergoth, do you suppose? When I was a youngin’ I used to call anyone over 30 a “SOG” (sad old goth) but now I’m past that point I don’t know when the ‘elder’ bit starts. I don’t know if I want to be an eldergoth anyway. It sounds like I should be shaking my fist at the kiddiegoths and telling them to get out of my cemetery/dancefloor/black section at the op-shop… wait…
I like this goth’s honestly; he has embraced his eldergoth-ness and is celebrating it, and he admits that he has intentionally made the photo black and white due to the day time shot. He is a decent height in the tree, he’s not smiling, and he’s in a cemetery. Bonus points for the giant head of Robert Smith on his shirt and for just being honest about things. Refreshing.
4.7 out of 5 - I must be turning into an eldergoth if I find honesty exciting. When I swap the vodka for tea you’ll know things have really gone to shit.

I run a camp for 9 to 12 year old girls and they decided that they wanted to have a superhero day. Many of them even created their own superheroes! It was a lot of fun and great to see a new generation of girls loving superheroes.

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xxPlease signal boost this everybody!
