Here, have a transparent pinup of Commander’s ex-wife from the side of his ship back before they bumped him back a pay grade.

Am I crushing on Commander’s ex-wife?
Pffffffffffffft (yes)

Now You Know (Source)

This is an important event in history, especially Canadian and feminist history. So I’m going to tell you more about it.
1) The shooter had been rejected from Ecole Polytechnique prior to the shooting. He blamed this on these female students, claiming that they were feminists who ruined his life.
2) In the first classroom he entered, he demanded the men leave before shooting at the women. No man attempted to stop him as they left. Take that as you will. (Later on, several men did get injured trying to stop him in the hallways.)
3) In his suicide letter, he believed that feminists were attempting to be more powerful than men, and were trying to take men’s rights away.4) Feminists were actually blamed by some for the massacre. The line of logic was “if feminists didn’t make women’s rights an issue, Levine wouldn’t have wanted to kill feminists!” Victim blaming at its finest.
5) The mainstream news media often did not publicize the outrage from women’s groups, and often preferred those who took a calm approach. Ironic, that.
6) Despite him literally having a hit list of feminist icons in his final letter, several newscasters questioned whether or not the shooting was a sexist act, some even denying the idea outright.
8) Many memorials for the victims have been created, and rightly so; however, some prominent ones were erected in poor neighbourhoods where many Native women were killed every day in the same time period as the shooting (see: Marker of Change, Vancouver) (see: Missing Women, Vancouver). Basically, white feminism happened. 
The entire event was nothing short of a tragedy, and I recommend that everyone read up on it and the resulting aftermath. It’s… interesting to see how the media tried to turn it into a random act of psychopathy instead of what it was (we know better now, luckily). The reactions (memorials, etc) to the deaths of these 14 White, middle class women as compared to the deaths of 60+ Native, lower class women are also “interesting” to compare. (By interesting, I mean infuriating.)

It’s also an important event because after it happened Canada was like “oh shit better expedite that whole gun control thing” and then did. I feel like this situation is so completely ignored when Americans talk about gun control, like the examples the American left always trot out are like “look at how well gun control works in Europe” and opponents say “well gun culture is completely different here you can’t just take them all away all of the sudden and expect that to work”. But Canada has a lot of guns AND regulates ownership to successfully cut down on gun crime, violence, and accidents. It was a pretty clear line of “this is a problem that requires legislation” and the necessary change was made. People grumbled a lot, but the shift happened.

8bitrevolver:

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Someone told me this was helpful, so, since I had only really done it for myself before with no regard for readability, I thought I’d take twenty minutes and rearrange it to be easier to read.  Hi folks.

this is really informative guys

Wow, yeah, this is really useful.

I have people in my life who are living with depression, and this is super informative on so many fronts.  Wonderfully done!

another one of ren’s exes came forward with her story and my heart goes out to her—my experiences with ren were largely similar, but i won’t extend… too far on my own experiences, at least on this post.
the victim did give me permission to post this with her name intact. again this is absolutely unacceptable and i’m glad people are coming forward more and more.

I wanted to get the chance to say my bit about Ren. There, of course, needs to be a massive trigger warning for the things that are going to be below the cut. I also apologize if this isn’t the most well written post. I am too pissed to care.

more extension of the post, from the victim’s brother
absolutely disgusting.
if you take a neutral stance on this i can’t believe you

Holy shit I had no idea Renard, was such a piece of human garbage.  The music I downloaded from them is getting deleted so hard, I’m glad I never paid for any of it.

Yeah really Ruck, what the flying fuck is wrong right now? Thanks for reblogging this.
It’s not even anything wrong “now” in particular, its just that now its easier to actually communicate and display when this happens.
My only exposure whatsoever I had to this person and their work was a piece of fanart one of my friends did once, and I’m SO glad I don’t have ANY attachment, familiarity, or liking to this person’s work ( i couldn’t identify one of their songs by hearing it for 100,000 bucks) because I’m already pissed and outraged enough over this without having the fact of having actually enjoyed their apparently harmless music making me upset as well.
Why is all this horrible fandom related shit coming to a head at the EXACT SAME FUCKING TIME?
They’re like three different things on my dashboard at the SAME TIME that I could very LOOSELY be described as “abuse/assault and victim/whistleblower harassment & silencing” related scandals.
I say let it be the start of this year being the year of exposing abuse and letting the good guys being louder than the passive/negligent/evil ones who are all “Derp guys stop causing drama by spreading rumors we’s got to stick together for teh fandumb’s sake.”

You’re welcome. A lot does seem to be happening this year already.  So allow me to back you up full-heartily when you say:

Fandoms get bad reps BECAUSE of people defending or ignoring god awful behavior.  This is the year its going to fucking end.
