OTW’s 7 Wonders membership drive to raise $70,000 by Oct 27 starts now. We need everyone’s help so find out more.
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN
Welcome back to the OTW’s yearly membership drive, the time of year when we all take a moment to look back at our collective fannish history and do our best to support the organization that has given us Archive of Our Own, Transformative Works and Cultures, Fanlore, and so much more.
It’s also a time to remember that it will cost the OTW will spend $75,000 in 2014 just to replace old servers and expand capacity. All of the OTW’s other projects aside, Archive of Our Own by itself will cost over $155,000 to maintain this year. AO3 is an incredible fandom resource, and as the site has expanded and grown it’s become easy to become accustomed to it being there for us. But any site that has 4,800 page views every minute isn’t going to be cheap to maintain, and right now it’s our turn to give back. (Please check out the OTW’s 2013 annual report, the OTW’s Hardware and Hosting costs, and AO3’s 2013 site stats for more information.)
Other than tumblr, I literally can’t think of a site that I use more frequently and consistently than AO3 — and it’s given to use entirely for free and with no gross advertising.
Even if it’s only $10, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THE ORGANIZATION FOR TRANSFORMATIVE WORKS TODAY!

Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.
Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.
gonna reblog this till I stop tumbling
Halloween meme † dance scenes: Practical Magic
What? My boobs are great.
See? Perfectly fine.
I mean, yeah, they jiggle and wobble and don’t sit high up on my chest. But that’s normal.
Like what do you think I should do about it? I mean
My boobs just do normal boob things. They’re A-okay normal healthy boobs.
Moral: Boobs are really diverse. Do your boobs sag? Normal. Do they have hair? Normal. Do they have stretch marks? Normal. Do you get pimples on them? Normal. Are they different sizes? Normal. Big nipples? Normal. Puffy dark areola? Normal. Not facing dead ahead? Normal. Small? Normal. Big? Normal. Normal Normal Normal.
And they’re your boobs. If you can change any of those things and you want to, go ahead!
But don’t let people tell you that your breasts are wrong just because they’re affected by gravity.
You’re fine. They’re fine.
Do think she could have made the same point Without showing her boobs though :$ that just gave the world a look at her half naked. Not classy…
- They’re just boobs, man.
- I’m topless like 70 percent of the time anyway, but I made a point of showing them, and subsequently received hundreds of messages along the lines of “that’s exactly what my breasts look like! I’d never seen any like them before! thank you”
- Your concept of class is silly. I am laughing at you.
- Seriously, they’re just boobs. Am I supposed to be ashamed of my boobs or something? Are you 12
- I do not associate with people that are that scared and disgusted by nudity, because I am not a child and understand that bodies are not inherently sexual, and even if they were there’s nothing wrong being sexual
- How are you breathing with your head stuck so far up your ass. Are you okay?
- Grow up.
- No one asked you.
Found two baby bats rolling on my deck this morning. I had never seen a baby bat before, thought maybe others hadn’t either
