Nope sorry Elektra. You lost me. You’re telling me you are going  to jump out of an airplane in a bathing suit and dangly bandana. Literally horrible plan. Logistically. For your health. For your safety. For my sanity.

Have we ever talked about home much I love the waitress from the Avengers? Because I do. I’ve worked in customer service for ever, I worked at a coffee shop for seven years. And let me tell you, while there are plenty of assholes in the world there are also plenty of the people like Steve.

Who from her perspective, is what I like to call the Sweet Weirdo. Because there is always some dude who doesn’t seem to know the simplest of things and you are in customer service so you have to explain it to them nicely. you see its just a little card board sleeve that wraps around your cup so your hand doesn’t get to hot. But when you explain it to them it’s like the whole world has opened up and anythings possible. But you’ve moved on by then to washing dishes. sure man have a nice day.

I don’t know. She’s adorable and patient and seems to get what’s going on a little to well. I fucking like her.

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

#SAM WAS SO GREAT LET ME LIST SOME OF THE WAYS #fearlessly chatting with captain america; treating steve like a human being #recognizing something in steve that speaks to having a hard time adjusting to his situation #and bringing it up in a way that doesn’t put steve on the defensive or make it sound like something not perfectly normal #inviting him to a ptsd meeting without making it seem like he thinks steve needs therapy #or that therapy is something to be ashamed about needing #just so casual and so fucking cool #Sam will be your legs before you realize you can’t stand anymore #and he’ll never ever make that about him (via queenklu)

Flawless Human Beings » Gina Torres » Gina Torres Alphabet

↳ F → feminism & representation
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)

I started drinking coffee around 15. Maybe 14. I don’t remember. It doesn’t matter. Growing up, and especially now when the four of us are all together, we go through pots of coffee in the morning as a family. Coffee and tomatoes would be the iconography of our family’s shield.

But every time I drink a cup, think about a cup, I get excited. This morning I was laying in bed thinking gosh what am I going to have for breakfast I’m not even hungry. And then out load Oh Coffee Yes Good.

It’s never even a let down (with the notable exception of some very poorly brewed cups). Every. Single. Time. I drink a cup it is as good or better than I remember. People always talk about things growing out, growing out of them, loosing their shine, or what have you. But coffee has never lost it’s shine. I think, in some small way, that bodes well for my ability to love. That I’ll  continue to love someone after the newness has faded and all thats left is reality.

I don’t know. Maybe I’m being silly. Or naive. Or overly hopeful.

The world is full of evil, lies, pain, and death and you can’t hide from it. You can only face it. The question is when you do, how do you respond, who do you become?

I am here all day for FitzSimmons’ real, unattractive, continuing-to-do-other-shit-but-still-weeping, crying. Gosh. People get upset sometimes and hey! They don’t always scream like Leo in exile ala R+J.
