This is what feminists mean when they say that feminism is about gender equality. It’s not really about equality, it’s about paying men back for all the supposed grievances women have suffered at the hands of the “patriarchy”.

You… do realize it’s trying to point out the wage gap between men and women, right?
Women make 75 cents to the dollar that men make. And that’s just WHITE women. POC women make even less.
So, yes, it is for equality. So that when men see that price difference, they go “Hey, that’s not equal, that sucks” and women can say “YES, LET ME TELL YOU A THING”
I WAS MAD AT MY DOG FOR GOING THROUGH THE TRASH BUT AFTER SEEING THIS TWICE IM CUDDLING HIM.
No, that’s all right, I wanted to cry sometime today…
You want to know why I cosplay Homestuck?
Why a ‘serious cosplayer’ would even bother with this stuff anymore? Why I still don the grey paint at cons even though the fandom has died down a lot, and the cosplay is generally not taken seriously by those outside the fandom?
It’s because when I am in Homestuck cosplay I. FEEL. GOOD.
I feel comfortable. I’m happy. I don’t feel like I have to try and impress anyone. I feel like no matter what someone is going to think my costume is the cats pajamas. Whether I’m one of the thousand Daves or in my Eridan cosplay, whether I’m a beta or an alpha kid, canon or Humanstuck or Steampunkstuck or another AU. I feel like I look great, like people will like me and recognize me and be friendly to me. The fandom may have shrunk but that just means some of the icky people who got us a bad rep in the first place have finally flown the coop. What’s left is the people who really love the story, the costumes, the characters, the friends they’ve made over the years. You guys are what got me back into cosplay, and you are still my favorite group to cosplay with.
I have done plenty of other costumes and never, ever have I felt as good as I do in a Homestuck costume. So joke and dislike it all you want, the grey is here to stay.
Daenerys Fan Challenge 1A. Favourite Moment.
“A dragon is no slave.” And Dany swept the lash down as hard as she could across the slaver’s face. Kraznys screamed and staggered back, the blood running red down his cheeks into his perfumed beard. The harpy’s fingers had tom his features half to pieces with one slash, but she did not pause to contemplate the ruin. “Drogon,” she sang out loudly, sweetly, all her fear forgotten. “Dracarys.”
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER
they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write
then just the biggest smiles when they are reassured yet again how much they just love each otherI’m actually jealous rn
