"I don’t want to go so far as to say that only a white writer would think to have Sam Wilson become Captain America, because that’s not the case. I do, however, think that only a writer who isn’t trying hard enough would come up with that already-been-done story. More important, I think only a writer caught up in existing racial ideologies would think it is a good idea that a black man assumes the identity of a white man, as if that is the pinnacle of identity.

Let me be clear, so there is no misunderstanding, any writer working in comics could have come up with the idea of Falcon taking over for Captain America. It is a no-brainer. What is troubling to me—and is something that I’ve talked about before—is that in his forty-plus year history, Falcon has no truly defining story. Even the best Falcon stories are either mediocre or forgettable, and now, after all this time, the character gets to do something memorable by taking over the job of a white guy. This is the real reason why Marvel’s Diversity & Representation 2014 initiative is such a joke. It is all superficial (not to mention temporary), and it only perpetuates the notion that in order for people of color and women to achieve greatness, they must literally fill the shoes of a white man. Gimme a break."

Exercise caution, especially with things labeled “fresh” pizza

I dunno, I’m most worried about “stairs”

OH MY GOD. I accidentally gave my mother a book for Christmas that included rather a lot of detailed sex (I’d heard it was a good steampunk-ish story! How was I supposed to know about the sexy romance?! I read a copy of the book months later on a plane and was … a little…

Ooooooops. And then, what do you do, really, because do you admit that you hadn’t read it when you gave it to her, do you say oh hey, I read it now, and yeaaah, or do you just never mention it and it’s like Schrodinger’s sex scene, because you don’t know if she’s read it (yet) or not?

I just literally drank an entire liter of water while waiting for the water to get hot enough to mop with. 

I will not miss this apartment at all.

Gold sequins sound very practical on a superhero costume. There’s no way that can end in lots of late night repairs. Yup. So practical.

I’ve decided that it’s scale mail. She just had it gilded or burnished or something. If Steve’s can be blue, why can’t hers be gold?

Don’t date men who disrespect women, doesn’t matter if he’s nice to you. If he’s constantly disrespecting other women, nah.

If he’s constantly disrespecting other women, he’ll get around to you sooner or later.
