Wow. I’m sure you’ve all seen this girl’s fantastic tardis dress floating around here the last week or so. She hand painted the inside and everything, and she just looks plain great. But of course, I see it posted on facebook, and the slew of comments begin.

I don’t think it’s a mystery as to why I, as a bigger girl, spend the week before a convention crying because I’m so nervous about what people are going to say about me just because I want to dress up and have fun like everyone else. And there is something really, really fucking wrong with that.

This girl is as beautiful as she is clever! If we on Tumblr are only good for one thing, it’s turning situations like this around! Let’s signal boost this and get it back to her so she knows how much we love it! ALLONZ-Y

Some people need a reality check preferably with a baseball bat THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME and she is gorgeous.

So this girl puts tons of work into this dress, hand paints it, looks 50000000% adorable in it, and posts pictures of it because she is so very proud of her work.  As she should be.  And then these people come along and put her down - because “oh no!” How dare someone **NOT** have a tiny body frame?  What the heck is that crud anyway!?  

Usually I would just reblog without comment, but those comments were really unnecessary.  She looks stunning and those people are more envious of her awesomesaucitiness than anything else.

My favorite is the bottom one because of how clearly it exemplifies that women absolutely can not win in geek culture, because here she is “called to task” for not being sexy, but if she was wearing a sexy tardis dress you can be sure the comments would be instead about how she’s using it for attention and is obviously not a “real” geek.

This is the most impressive shit I have ever seen and her weight does not affect that in the fucking least YOU GO GIRL

I’ve got to say, as a bigger built woman, reading shit like what was thrown at her, makes me not want to bother dressing up. And if I did at all, I most certainly would not make my photos public to people because of fear of this. I take my hat off to you, hun, that you did this, and I hope all those negative comments haven’t stopped you dressing up at cons. 

i mean, come on. LOOK AT THAT DRESS. LOOK AT THEM SKILLS.

But she looks so Fabulous like come on look at her

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.

Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.

The first American mystery novel was written by Metta Victoria Fuller Victor, as well as the first dime novel, and the first crime novel..


Wonderful

99% of people won’t reblog this because they think it’ll make their blog look as shitty as their heart.

Yesterday a 17 year female, who attends Lancaster High School in California, was beaten by a football player, on school grounds, for being gay. After receiving over a dozen blows to her jaw, head, eye and head, all he received was a 5 day suspension by the Lancaster School District. She suffered from a fractured jaw and multiple concussions to the head and the Deputy Sheriff advised her mother to re-think her wanting to file charges against the football player because her daughter pushed him back. The school ended up documenting “assault” charges on the victims school file, NOT the football players!!! To make things worse, the Deputy Sheriff warned the victim, by saying, “Just so you know, if you file charges against him, I’m taking his side.” We’re attempting to raise awareness and bring this story to light because Lancaster High School is trying to sweep this “Hate Crime” under the rug!

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
