Lexus is giving away $2,500 to someone who shaved their heads for St. Baldricks. We just needed to submit a short video explaining why we wanted to win.
They’re also giving away $1,000 to one lucky voter.
We’d LOVE to go to LeakyCon SO BADLY. We were so upset last year when we couldn’t take our girls for their 11th birthday. I don’t know if that amount would actually be enough to get us to FL for LeakyCon, but it can’t hurt to try.
Please please please please go vote for us.
The experience of food is sensual. It is also first-hand. That is, while it’s fun to read recipes and look at photographs of table settings in Gourmet magazine, no one I know considers this a substitute for eating. The experience of buildings is sensual, too. Yet many of us get our first glimpses of buildings - particularly celebrated buildings - as images in books, magazines, newspapers, public lectures, and exhibitions.
Now this is just mean.
Know where you stand.
Why I love history.
wow. this blew my mind.
I legit have chills.
Is Librarians Against Humanity fact or fiction? Who knows. But these are hilarious. You had me at cameltoe.
Many of you already know about some of the recent events concerning various YouTube performers and allegations of sexual misconduct. When I read about this (and it seems to come and come right now), I thought, “I have nothing to add to this.” So I just watched. And was sad. And also heartened by…
Auntie MJ drops some words of wisdom on the masses.
Q:Hello! I don't know you and don't want to sound rude by coming in your inbox, but I just saw the little debate over your last anon on my dash. I just wanted to tell you that in most fandom it's indeed considered rude to tag criticism / hate with the general fandom tag (here "emma approuved"). It's not about censoring such posts, just not making them appear in the general tag so fans don't have to deal with negativity when they don't want to. I hope it helps you understand anon's reaction!
I know some people consider it rude. I don’t agree. I think it’s rude to expect people behaving reasonably in a public space to censor themselves according to your preferences and then to be abusive when they don’t. I’ve been in fandom for almost 15 years. I’ve seen this before. I’ve seen 80 incarnations of it.
The following is not in response to the asker. This is my opinion.
Would you go to the public library and ask them to take all the books on unicorns off the shelves because you don’t like unicorns? If you would, you might want to stop and think about that. You’d likely ask people not to bring unicorns into your home, or send you photos of them.
No one owns the tags. They are a public list of links in a public space that millions of people can see.
I didn’t care to have irate anons leaving me ask messages. So I turned off anon asks. Expecting the world or the internet to tailor itself to your taste is a recipe for disappointment. You have to take responsibility and use the tools that are freely available.
The internet is in our homes and on our phones with us and can seem like our personal space, but it’s not.
I mean, if it really bothers you that much stop watching. From what you wrote it's more than just Alex physically restraining Emma that you have a problem with, so why not stop watching? Idk. You seem to have a problem with the show as a whole, not just little things, so it's useless continuing to watch it.

"If “don’t like? don’t watch” works for you and makes you happy? I understand. I respect that. Would you consider returning that respect? That I am allowed to critique and explore a show I find highly flawed based on my favorite novel?"
