WHY COULDN’T WE HAVE HAD A DEAF ACTOR PLAY HAWKEYE???

i had no idea hawkeye was deaf…like, it’s not even mentioned in the movies? wow, another character’s disability being completely erased, HOW SURPRISING.

This interested me, so I googled it. I found a forum talking about this.. one user said, “He was severely hearing impaired but is no longer. After Onslaught decimated the Avengers and Fantastic Four. Franklin Richards used his reality powers to reconstruct them on a new Earth (Heroes Reborn). The storyline holds that Franklin Richards unaware of certain character attributes reconstructed them without these characteristics.

Hawkeye is no longer hearing impaired and has not been since the late 90’s. I am personally hearing impaired and this is by far one of my least favorite character alterations/retcons Marvel has ever done.” (Source)

WELL FUCK THE STORY JUST GOT WORSE

Wow. WOW. They really had to ~cure~ on of the VERY few disabled characters? WOW.

RIOT IN THE FUCKING STREETS

Actually, in Fraction’s Hawkeye, Clint is slowly losing his hearing again.  The speach bubbles fade off like he can’t quite make out words from a distance right now.

Fraction has talked about Clint’s hearing a few different times saying it’s something the current run will explore and believing that Clint had always had some form of hearing impairment his whole life.  There is even talk of an issue about sign language coming up.

Point is, Clint is losing his hearing again.

As of Hawkeye #19 Clint has lost his hearing again

That issue is also almost entirely written in American Sign Language, and has some really, really beautiful work in it by the super talented David Aja 

I strongly recommend giving it a read!

I pray that they include it in the MCU

Petition: Hong Kong Government: Legislate a ban on the sale and possession of shark fin in Hong Kong.

From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.

Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.

This petition is endorsed by: Shark Rescue

BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.

IF THERE WAS EVER A HEAD TO THIS DRAGON - THERE IT IS.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE??? WITHOUT THE ISSUE OF SHARK FIN SOUP WE COULD CONCENTRATE ON THE ISSUE OF BYCATCH AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE PERMANENTLY.

Save sharks! They are so important.

please sign the petition guys

Its a fucking blood bath! Sign this petition you guys!

I’m crying……..SAVE THE SHARKS PLEASE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

FUCK THIS. Please sign this. :’(

SAVE MY BABIES

WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.

so my history teacher is a really cool guy but he’s also one of those teachers who, upon being asked “can i go to the bathroom?” goes “i don’t know, *can* you?” and he did it to a girl and she goes “WHAT ARE YOU PREPARING FOR? YOU REALIZE THAT AFTER HIGH SCHOOL I WILL NEVER NEED TO ASK PERMISSION TO USE THE BATHROOM AGAIN, AND THE DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF CAN SAYS ‘BE PERMITTED TO’”
