oMFG I just came downstairs and I found my sister with a lighter and I told her she can’t use fire and that it could catch the house on fire. She said that she was doing something important so I asked “what the hell is so important that you need fire for!?” and she told me with serious face ” I am using black magic to summon demons to get the mean girls at my school.” i can’t fucking breathe. I sat and watched her ritual hahahahaha shes fucking 10 years old
This should be a wake-up call to her parents.
She obviously needs help.
Her parents should to talk to her about those mean girls,
and teach her that she can’t summon demons with just candles.
You need at least a pentagram drawn in a perfect circle
with goat or lamb blood,
and a proper incantation from a book of dark magick.
This is great way to to teach your child early on
about geometry and foreign languages.
Good art lesson too. Drawing perfect circles is hard
dOES NO ONE ELSE FIND THIS EXTREMELY DISTURBING
Actually I find this girl fantastic. Ending bullying one curse at a time.
She might want to hold off on summoning demons until she’s a bit more mature but yes curse those fuckers you go, girl
Now hang on, just hang on a moment there. Let’s make one thing clear right now:
There is not a goddamned thing wrong with calling on someone bigger and stronger then you for help if need be.
If that stronger someone just happens to have tentacles and two-foot-long fangs, well, that’s more the problem of certain mean girls, I’d say.
Here kid, i drew you a new pal. You summoned a demon, you got one. Sorry i couldn’t put more time into this sketch but his name is Bill.
I love everything about this post

Well have you looked at his human kid?
The above (from the Huffington Post) is a sign of why good PR is important, and why DC really, really needs to step up on the issue of diversity in superhero comics.
In a story using the new Thor as a hook, DC merits a “has also joined the trend of bringing female characters to the forefront,” instead of the more accurate “DC led the trend, with seven ongoing titles out of its 2011 relaunch featuring female solo leads at a time when Marvel only had two ongoing female solo leads,” with DC’s number not dropping below seven since then while Marvel managed to reach a point later that year where it has zero ongoing series featuring female leads.
The HuffPo piece (and this Daily Beast piece from the weekend) point out not just how well the Marvel Hype Machine works these days in framing the narrative but almost more importantly just how badly DC does the same thing (It also points out how eagerly journalists for major news outlets eat up talking points instead of going out and researching things sometimes, but that’s neither here nor there).
In all of the news about the replacement Captain America, it’s surprising that no one — myself included — brought up that DC has had a black Superman for the last few months in Earth-2 (or longer, if you want to look at Grant Morrison’s continued use of the Superman from Earth-23). With all the push about diversity in Marvel, no one pointed out that the publisher doesn’t have a solo gay lead, whereas DC’s been putting Batwoman out there for the last three years (Not to mention Green Lantern in Earth-2 or Constantine, who’s bi, I think? He was in Hellblazer, but who can tell in the New 52?).
These are all alternate talking points that DC could (should?) be pushing out there in order to point out that, really, it’s not got a “crisis” or playing catch-up; it’s been there for some time, but not making the same kind of look at us look at us we have friends who aren’t white straight males noises as Marvel whenever it makes these decisions. But, instead, they just sit back and… I don’t know. Hope that someone notices?
(All of which shouldn’t be taken as a “Marvel, you are terrible,” or whatever — it’s not, and its PR machine is very good at what it does — but as a “DC, at this point, you’re practically causing your own bad press.”)
And the second of the two.
Uh, yup to all of this.
what the fuck…
I’ve had a dude do that before. that shit is terrifying. Dude went across the room like he typically would to get one. Came back and I didn’t know that he didn’t have one until he pulled out.
I FLIPPED. Cried all the way home. Cried for days. Got tested. Bought the morning after pill. Seriously, fuck dudes that do this. There should be laws against it.
There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE.
How can anyone think this is ok, by any stretch of the imagination???My ex did this and only told me after I dumped him. This is pretty much why men aren’t to be trusted
If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”.
I know this thought has crosses my mind before, I’m sure it has for you too?After saturday’s Crystal episode, I was reminded of it even more so.
What if Jadeite had been a little more pro-active in getting all that energy he needed…..

I’ve heard exclusionary, eradicating, and erasing, and you know what? Same difference.
By excluding trans women from feminism, one is effectively eradicating them. By saying “I don’t care about the violence you face as a trans woman” either through disbelief or ignoring their situation, one becomes part of the system that perpetuates that violence. By saying trans women are “really men,” that’s actively harmful. By saying trans women’s issues are irrelevant to feminism, that’s actively harmful. Whether by their own hand or someone else’s, trans people in general and trans women in particular face an amount of violence that we can’t exclude from the issues of the feminist movement, can’t erase from the feminist movement, without the result being effectively eradicating them.
It is hateful to tell trans women that they aren’t women. It’s just as bad as telling lesbians we just need a good dicking or telling women to get back in the kitchen. Bigotry is bigotry. I’m sure your friends have some other wonderful qualities, but that particular one is incredibly ugly and don’t make excuses for it.

I thought they couldn’t make it anymore terrifying. I was wrong.
I’ll be honest with you, anon, I was already coming into the news of the “reboot” of Batgirl with about as little emotional investment in the title of Batgirl and the character of Barbara Gordon as I have ever had in my entire life. The past three years has really brought me to an unhappy place with two of my former loves, and I find that a sad number on its own.
I think it’s really a sham that everyone keeps calling it a reboot? It’s just a creative team change (they’re not even “restarting” the numbering) — which is huge, but you don’t see the same bombast about the creative team exchange with Wonder Woman or Detective Comics or even the the power houses taking over Superman right now. And while it’s possible that it’s because those titles are still being marketed the same while Batgirl has — shockingly after three years of rebooting the title to begin with — decided to target demographics most likely to be interested in a Batgirl book, at the end of the day it’s about the same level of excitement as any other creative change.
Really, I think the only reason DC is making it such a “huge deal” is to cover up another possible fan outcry considering that Simone is leaving the book due to creative interference by editors. Which literally makes this creative team change up — to me — on the same level of scrutiny and side eying as the Batwoman kerfuffle among other creator walk offs (George freaking Pérez being pretty high on that list all things considering).
The costume’s cute, but Barbara looks to be about 12, and is acting pretty much exactly like one in everything I’ve seen so far. Which is completely alienating to me because the exact reason I like Barbara Gordon (as Batgirl and as Oracle) is because she’s never been the now-traditional age of most female superheroes. She’s always been older than her other “teen” peers and wiser beyond even that age due to the circumstances of her growing up.
That seems it would be even more relevant considering it’s now canon that she’s had a serial killer for a brother making her younger years very unsettling.
And while the costume’s cute, I don’t get everyone patting DC on the back (including the creative team themselves) for designing a “practical Batgirl costume”??? Other than some questionable choices in Elseworlds and statues (looking at you Ame-Comi and Bombshells) which were obviously pervy for the creators, when has Barbara or any other Batgirl been in a truly questionable costume? Ever? Like, yeah, I hate superheroes in heels, but Terry McGinnis has those and he pretty much only uses kicks. And Babs lost those relatively quick her years as Batgirl. So I just don’t get the celebration going on. At all. They’re putting practical clothes on one of the 10 superhero women in their lineup that already had them. Yay?
I try to understand the excitement around the announcement, but I don’t really understand it, to be frank. And while I won’t be buying the “new” Batgirl this fall, it’s not exactly as if I hadn’t given up on Barbara’s Batgirl around issue #15 anyway.
#i like the costume; problem is it’s really a ‘batgirl: year one’ costume#the costume of a young babs diving headfirst into the world of vigilantism#with none of the extensive resources of bruce wayne#forced to get creative with the few resources she has#if this was an ACTUAL reboot#a comic that took babs back to the first time she donned the costume#i’d be into it#(though not without misgivings#because while i like young babs i’m also endlessly pissed off at dc for not allowing the character to grow up#for regressing her to batgirl after she’d become the powerful and influential oracle#and in doing so taking away from us one of the few prominent disabled heroines)#but this isn’t year one babs#this is a hardened seasoned babs#a batgirl who’s been shot and seriously injured#who’s suffered spinal trauma and ptsd#who’s faced off against countless horrors including a serial killer brother#and as much as dislike this version of babs and want it to go away#if you’re writing *that* babs it makes no sense for her to trade in body armour#for a leather jacket and a cute clip-on cape#no sense at all
“This is a hardened seasoned Babs”
The (biggest) problem is that this Babs has never acted like she was a seasoned veteran at superheroics. Up until the point that I was reading which was at least a year in, Babs was still making rookie mistakes to the point where what should have been an occasional slip-up was an occasional success. It was so bad that I have no doubt within my mind that if this wasn’t Barbara Gordon, wasn’t Batgirl, wasn’t it’s own ongoing but was just someone guest starring in another title that she would’ve been totally on the chopping block or at the very least someone in need of saving. It was that bad.

I honestly just did this so I could draw the bird looking back like that in the last panel. Hahaha look at him.
I do a lot of these.
So do other people.
