"There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.

CINEMATIC MILES MORALES COSPLAY
Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!
(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)
This is hands down one of the best cosplays I have ever seen in my life.
It would be an honor to meet this man.

It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
I cannot wait for men to cry about this
I’m just going to reblog this without all the nasty anti-feminist comments and reiterate her point: If women are being told every time they leave their house to be safe, if they are being told to live by a code of rape prevention- hold pepper spray or mace, keys in their hands, don’t go out at night, don’t go out there, don’t walk alone, etc. etc. basically don’t leave your house or live your life if you don’t want to be blamed for your own rape because believe me in some way you were definitely responsible (OMG did you seriously wear RED lipstick? that’s like a rape bat signal)- and now if women are being catered to with a new line of anti-rape products such as anti-rape clothing, just WTF are men who are 99% of rape’s perpetrators and the #1 beneficiaries of misogyny doing to prevent rape? And why is it easier to make individual women responsible for rape prevention, why is it considered helpful to continue to place the blame on the victim, instead of actually challenging the reason this is all occurring on a systemic level?
I can’t believe there are people who actually compared using these products to wearing a bullet proof vest, like it’s no big deal that women’s lives are war zones. Except if this was actually recognized as a war, nobody would think wearing bulletproof vests would stop it, and the offenders would not be so invisible that the victims’ wounds were perceived as self-inflicted.
Where the fuck are the anti-rape products being sold to men, and I don’t mean the 10% or so of victims, I mean the perpetrators. Where is male rape prevention? What code do they live by to keep those around them safe? Do they have “I’m not entitled to other’s bodies” hammered into them while women receive another message on how they shouldn’t ‘antagonize’ men?
Where is the funding for feminists, sociologists, anthropologists etc. to tackle issues of how male gender culture is a breeding ground for rapists?
