Oh, and while we’re talking about sex-repulsed people:

  • It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed because you have experienced sexual abuse or trauma in your past.
  • It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed because sex feels painful, uncomfortable or frightening to you.
  • It’s okay if you’re sex-repulsed and there’s no “cause” for it, it’s just how you’ve always been.
  • It’s okay if you feel sex-repulsed sometimes and not repulsed at other times, or if you’ve become more/less sex-repulsed over time.
  • It’s okay to be afraid of sex.
  • It’s okay to think that sex is disgusting.
  • It’s okay to like reading/watching fictional sex but not want it in real life.
  • It’s okay to be repulsed by some sexual things but not by other sexual things.
  • None of the above things make your feelings weird, messed-up or unhealthy.
  • You don’t need to “overcome” your dislike of sex. If you’re happier without sex, then that’s great, you don’t need to change.
  • If you want to become more comfortable with sex, or if you think therapy will help you be happier with yourself, then that’s fine, too.
  • If your partner wants you to do something sexual that you’re not comfortable with, then they’re the one in the wrong, and they need to stop. Your feelings and comfort are important, and you never owe sex to anyone.
  • If your partner wants you to change, or to stop being sex-repulsed or asexual, then they are wrong. You deserve a partner who loves you the way you are, respects your feelings, and doesn’t ask you to change for them.
  • You do not need to be sex-positive, or willing to have sex, in order to be a “healthy” or “normal” asexual person.
  • Some sex-repulsed people aren’t asexual-spectrum. All of the above applies to them, too!
  • Whatever your feelings about sex are, it is perfectly okay to feel the way you do, and there is nothing bad, abnormal or wrong about your feelings.

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

World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.

This gives me LIFE from people who insist all languages (ALL no matter what) derive from latin bases.

Reblogging this for three reasons:
1) It’s awesome and worth knowing
2) It makes sense when you think about, you know, the whole history of human development (from a NOT white supremacist perspective at least)
3) To add that if anyone ever tries to say that all languages are derived from Latin [insert choked sound of disbelief and anger] you can inform their ignorant (probably racist) asses of this: Latin, as far as languages go, is an INFANT. It’s part of a subset of Indo-European languages and MOTHERFUCKER EVEN ENGLISH ISN’T ONE OF ITS DERIVATIVES. (French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, and Portuguese are, as well as lots of their related languages and dialects, that’s it.) Latin isn’t even remotely old enough to be a mother language. It’s like saying alpacas were the original dinosaurs or some bullshit.

HUH! You dont FUCKING SAY?
WILL YOU LOOK THE FUCK AT THAT! 

Not surprising, but this is cool information!

So I guess all you assholes who go around like /well white people invented iPods and PoC use them is that ~cultural appropriation~/ are feeling pretty stupid now.

sorry what was that
anyone who tried to correct me
