Dead. So dead. One of my favorite ballads.

With a quiet rumble of tyres, the SUV pulled up beside them. Its black surface reflected the warehouses, the cranes, the wharf, defining the car’s presence only by the way it distorted its surroundings. The driver’s door opened and Ianto stepped out, leaving the engine purring. As usual, he was dressed in a three piece suit and tie. His shirt was double-cuffed, secured by cufflinks. He even wore a tie pin. Sometimes Toshiko thought that he wasn’t quite real.

‘I hope I’m not too late,’ he said calmly.

‘Ianto, you’re never too late and you’re never too early.’ Jack stood up and looked around. ‘That’s why we love you.

Torchwood novel Slow Decay (Andy Lane)

True. We all love Ianto.

It’s never going to be great. It’s never going to be roses and champagne, or I guess it would be rock salt and beer for these guys. It’s never going to be that. That said, this is now more brotherly than I’ve seen them in probably two years and I think that’s exciting for not only he and I but also for the fans. That being said, there’s always problems.

I know this isn’t going to be read and that this probably won’t get any notes but fuck it. I need to get this out of my system. Ok so recently my mom has become more aware of my fondness for people in the LGBTQ community. Mostly gays to be blunt with you. Honestly, I love the entirety of the LGBTQ…

^^ Age is nothing when you have social awareness and basic human decency. Applause to this young lady for standing up on defense of others and refusing to be silent in the face of hate speech.

In which my dad learns about purses and jeans sizes.

  • My dad: Your sister's crazy. Who'd want a $200 purse?
  • Me: She does.
  • My dad: What is it with ladies purses, anyway?
  • Me: (glancing at my purse) What do you mean?
  • My dad: How did that start--I mean, why do women use them? Doesn't it get tiring carrying a bag around all the time?
  • Me: (stands up and turns around) See those pockets?
  • My dad: ... Yes?
  • Me: What can I fit in them?
  • My dad: What?
  • Me: How many things do you think I could fit in my pockets? Honestly. How many things?
  • My dad: Doesn't look like you could fit much.
  • Me: A pack of Orbit, some folded bills, and that's about it. That's why we use purses--because we can't carry our shit in our pockets like you do.
  • My dad: But I can fit my wallet, my keys, and my cigarettes in my pockets!
  • Me: And your jeans also fit the way they should.
  • My dad: I'm almost afraid to ask, but what do you mean?
  • Me: Your jeans are sized by, what, your inseam and waist, right?
  • My dad: ... Aren't yours?
  • Me: I'm a size 3.
  • My dad: 3 what?
  • Me: No, just a 3. A size 3.
  • My dad: What does that mean?
  • Me: I actually have no idea. I'm a size 3 in these jeans. In some other jeans, I'm a 5. I'm a 7 in my favorite pair of shorts.
  • My dad: Wait, it's not the same?
  • Me: Nope. A size 3 in one brand's jeans is completely different from a size 3 in another brand.
  • My dad: That's fucking stupid! How do you shop for them?!
  • Me: With great difficulty. This is why when you ask me what I did during the week and despite the fact I know you won't care I sometimes tell you I found a pair of jeans. Because finding a pair of jeans that fit and fit well is like finding the Holy Grail with your name encrusted in diamonds on it

I find it so weird and disappointing how the SPN fandom addresses Gen as Jared’s wife. Especially because Ruby had such an important part in the show. If she didn’t marry Jared people would actually talk about her and her acting. I hate the fact that I have to pray for interviewers to ask her questions about herself and Ruby instead of asking about Jared and his career. She’s such an amazing person and talented actress, she deserves way more recognition than she gets.

According to First Coast News, last week, in Jacksonville, Florida, five new witness may turn out to be the best news for Marissa Alexander, and the worst news for her abusive husband, Rico Gray. In 2010, Marissa Alexander fired a shot into the air, to keep her husband from attacking her. Alexander had just given birth only ten days prior, and testified that Gray was in a jealous fury and threatened her life. In 2012, Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in prison, for firing that warning shot and harming no one. In a sworn deposition, Gray said,

I was in a rage. “I called her a whore and bitch and . . . I told her, you know, I used to always tell her that, if I can’t have you, nobody going to have you. It was not the first time of ever saying it to her.”

Ironically, according to Florida’s 'Stand You Ground,' Law if Alexander had killed Gray, she would have most likely gone free. (In states like South Carolina, Think Progress reports, Stand Your Ground doesn’t apply to victims of domestic violence.) First Coast News has extensively covered the Marissa Alexander case, and on October 10th they reported that five new witnesses came forth in a pretrial hearing, and testified against Rico Gray and his violent past:

Witnesses Thursday included three women with whom Gray has had children, as well as two sisters-in-law. All accused Gray of physically intimidating or brutalizing them. One girlfriend, Shartrecia Anderson, testified that Gray was prone to violence. “I know what he’s capable of. He will attack if he’s brought to that point,” she told the court. She also asserted that on at least one occasion, Gray stabbed himself with a fork in order to feign injury to police, and instructed his son to lie to officers in order to back up his version of events.

The prosecution is calling Shartrecia Anderson a liar. Anderson denied Gray abused her in a previous testimony. Keep in mind, many women are afraid of legally accusing their abusers; fearing their abusers will kill them. And that is often the case. According to Gloria Steinem, and verified by PolitiFact,

More women were killed by their husbands or boyfriends since Sept. 11 than “all the Americans who were killed by 9/11 or in Afghanistan and Iraq.” (Approximately 10,000)

Rico Gray did not take the stand on Thursday, and is due to give his side of the story(s) soon. It’s uncertain whether Judge James Daniels will take the testimonies of these new witness into consideration when ruling on Marissa Alexander’s new trial in December. Florida DA Angela Corey, the prosecuting attorney (and failed attorney in the Zimmerman/Martin trial) offered Alexander a 3-years guilty plea. Alexander felt she was innocent, and after having only three hours to decide, turned down the plea. Angela Cory then slapped Alexander with a 20-year sentence. Twenty years, for hurting no one, yet George Zimmerman walks free after what many call the ‘murder’ of Trayvon Martin. After Alexander spent many months in jail, including time away from her newborn infant, her trial was overturned in September of 2013, reportedly due to jury misinformation. It should be mentioned, the overturn occurred after a very big national protest. Once the original trial was overturned, rather than Angela Corey dropping the case, the District Attorney stated she will now go after a 60-year sentence in the new trial. Hard to even type that. It’s disgusting, merciless, unjust, and utterly ridiculous.

Another witness, former Gray wife Dashanna McGriff, alleged a raft of abuses, including being hit with a gun, having her nose broken, and being locked in a closet for hours.

After first seeing a Marissa Alexander headline via Katie Halper/Alternet, I have sworn to continue covering this case until Marissa Alexander is free. I also hope to see a renewed national discourse, not only about victims of domestic violence, but also about those who survive the abuse defending themselves, and are then prosecuted. Many victims of domestic abuse are taken from their children, incarcerated, and left to rot in prison. It’s no wonder so many women do not report domestic violence. Instead, they often stay in fear, and die horrific deaths. Here are the previous Marissa Alexander Daily Kos diaries I’ve written over the last two years. There are many more by other diarists and you can search those diaries by typing in the name, ‘Marissa Alexander,’ in the upper right search box. The diaries below are listed from first, to the most recent.

Special thanks to Karen Teegarden, the founder and president of UniteWomen.org - an organization that has continuously published news about this case, and supported Alexander, as well as many victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Many of the above diaries were also cross-posted in Liberals Unite.

If you are being abused, or know someone who is, there is help. Please contact: National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1.800.799.SAFE

(Note: There have been a few stories circulating over the past few days saying Alexander’s case was overturned. That story is from last September (2013) and has caused confusion among Alexander supporters.)

wth vindictive ass prosecutor, I’ll give you 3 years, don’t take it, I’ll try you for 20, get that overturned, you are now up for 60 years, bullshit.

Science Penguin [x]

i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight

And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”

I love everything about this post.

queerart-civildisobedience:

European accents (and in general white people accents) are commonly perceived as attractive and endearing, while accents from basically any other part of the world are considered to be signs of laziness and disrespect and get routinely made fun of.

very true, my spouse is British, and that’s the ‘good’ kind of immigrant, but my friend’s spouses (from Mexico, from Palestine, from China) not so much.

Opposite end of the spectrum with my Chinese heritage causing people to expect an accent.  Perceptions…sigh.
