#TBT Remember how weird and wonderful Tumblr was? Like when gay boys possessed by demons could make other kids gay over their video game console? “Being able to apply magic to a certain area of your voice is a magical feat which even the most seasoned of shamans find difficult with – and yet the teenager has a natural propensity for it. He can make people do things which they would naturally detest, or he can even hypnotise them completely, but only temporarily.”
“Recently, his commands have been getting darker and more cruel. Just the other day he commanded that a teammate strip off, photograph himself, and send it to his entire family on his contact list just because he stole his kill. No one will speak out against him, fearful that they would also end up receiving the same fate.”
PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL Andrew Yang was backed by scientists at NASA on his dark but realistic climate change response from the second Democratic debate weeks ago.

According to Next Shark, “The important number in this is 15 percent of global emissions,” said Yang. “We like to act as if we’re 100 percent. Even if we were to curb our emissions dramatically, the Earth is going to get warmer. The last four years have been the four warmest years in history. We are too late. We are 10 years too late.”

“We need to do everything we can to start moving the climate in the right direction,” he continued, “but we also need to start moving our people to higher ground—and the best way to do that is to put economic resources into your hands so you can protect yourself and your families.”
In July 2019, a major melting event spread across the Greenland Ice Sheet. Billions of tons of meltwater streamed into the Atlantic Ocean throughout the month, making a direct and immediate contribution to sea level rise. https://t.co/s5qQn1u01N #Greenland #NASA #Landsat pic.twitter.com/KGhUlHm0YC

NASA oceanographer Josh Willis recently spoke with CNN, providing data that backs Yang’s claims. “There is enough ice in Greenland to raise the sea levels by 7.5 meters, that’s about 25 feet, an enormous volume of ice, and that would be devastating to coastlines all around the planet,” Willis said. “We should be retreating already from the coastline if we are looking at many meters [lost] in the next century or two.”

PINK WASHING is a term that is often used to attack Israel by people who say the country promotes and publicizes the countries’s progressive attitudes toward LGBT people, and as an LGBT oasis in the Middle East, in an attempt to cancel out their terrible domestic policies towards Palestinians. Activist Hannah Simpson reacted to an aggressive proposal from Palestinians about LGBT issues by saying, “There is no such thing as Palestinian internal issues to the world. The entire Arab world of nations struggles with deeply institutionalized homophobia but Palestine would be as gay as Tel Aviv if it wasn’t for Israel. Right.”

Tweets started coming in shortly of people taking Noah’s advice. “I TOTALLY didn’t get 10,” one person wrote in response. Others reserved under names like Peepee Poopoo and Mike Litoris. There was even a Ben Dova. It was a fun time, racking up almost 40,000 retweets. But then something happened… it seemed to work.
According to reports, “thousands of Trump supporters were locked out of the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire” for a reelection rally, even though there were many empty seats inside. Thousands of empty seats, according to tweets from the event. It got so bad that #EmptySeatMAGATour started trending on Twitter.
THE NEW NORMAL According to LGBTQNation, “An Ohio teenager has been arrested after threatening to open fire at a gay bar and a Planned Parenthood clinic. 18-year-old Justin Olsen was taken into custody after making repeated threats online.

When the FBI raided Olsen’s home he shares with his father, they seized 25 guns and over 10,000 rounds of ammunition the teen had been stockpiling. In May when he turned 18, Olsen had bragged online that he couldn’t “wait to start stockpiling weapons,” according to a police report.
THE GOLDEN GIRLS are back. Kinda.That Golden Girls Show! A Puppet Parody is going on a national tour. Of all four of the classic show’s lovable ladies with puppeteers controlling their movements.
According to TVWeb, “Written and directed by Jonathan Rockefeller, the show originally debuted off-Broadway in 2016 and is now touring in different locations in the United States. While directly spoofing The Golden Girls, the live show is a tad more risque, as it reportedly contains strong adult language and themes. A preview video from the show’s previous run also provides a great look at what to expect, and you can check that out below.”
#SAVESPIDEY Stan Lee‘s daughter didn’t hold back her opinion of Marvel and Disney’s brief stewardship of Spider-Man. Now that a deal between the superhero movie behemoth and Sony has fallen apart, JC Lee took the megacorp to task for failing to honor her late father’s work. Complex magazine said, “Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father’s creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy,” she told TMZ. “Whether it’s Sony or someone else’s, the continued evolution of Stan’s characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view.”
She said that Disney wasn’t one for human connection, noting that nobody contacted her family following Lee’s death. “When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency,” she said. “In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives.”

“I began The Pride because I want to tell stories where queer characters and stories are not only told through metaphor, analogy and subtext, but are open, accessible and show a diversity of life not usually seen in the medium,” says writer and creator Joe Glass.
“We’ve been big fans of The Pride since it debuted through comiXology Submit in 2014,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “We are excited about the future of The Pride and so have taken steps to invest in it and have it continue as a comiXology Originals title. It’s fantastic to be able to pick up a series that debuted on Submit and help extend its reach to a broader worldwide audience.”
