My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid.  She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’  So like, don’t do this.

REGINA IS SO CUTE HERE OMG IM CRYING

Seriously. The way she plays with her hands in the last gif. Lana is such an amazing actress!

No but can we talk about Emma and how she doesn’t get defensive when Regina has a ‘mom-moment’ and how she lets her handle the situation. She doesn’t even look mad, just sad that Regina has to play the mayor card then slightly amused at the lame excuse she rattles off. As much as Emma has talked about not wanting Henry to get his memories back, I don’t think that includes Regina. I think if there was a way to explain to Henry that Regina is his mom too without mentioning curses, fairytale characters, or false memories, she would do that in a heartbeat.

Yes!

REBLOGGING THIS FOREVER

there’s an easy way to explain to a kid that he has two moms that doesn’t involve magic

I mean, other than the magic of lesbianism

Pray for South Korea

Tears are streaming down my face. I don’t care what your belief is, please send anything, even good vibes, to these kids because oh my god they are suffering so much. The water is muddy and it’s freezing and they are dying and they’re only seventeen.. 

These children are so scared.. desperately reassuring the world that yes, they are alive, please come for them. They’re messaging their little sisters, apologizing that they won’t be able to grant a request when they’re seconds away from death and just

oh.. oh my god. oh my fucking god words cannot describe the pain I’m feeling

I didn’t know what was going on. I knew it when I read BBC news. They’re still young.. We still have hope. I wish they’re fine..

so here’s what’s going on: a ship carrying 475 people, mainly South Korean high schoolers, has sunk. 180 are alive and have been found, there are 18 dead (and more injured), and 280 are still being searched for.

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.
