Also, can we talk about how glorious the costumes of the disco era Legion was? Every superhero has a costume from the 70s that embarrasses them (oh Diana and Kara, we still remember what happened the time you went shopping in Paris together) but the Legion wore theirs far longer and their fashion blunders hit that middle ground of where the badness is still compelling, instead of being a forgettable mess of awful.
From the movie studio who can’t figure out Wonder Woman. I look forward to this getting stuck in development hell as studio execs can’t decide if it should be goofy, grim ‘n gritty or dystopian.
Besides, the Legion should be a TV series. No soap opera has put together a story as good as the Sensor Girl arc.
Just as long as they remember that Lyle is gay and to keep Validus the @#$% away from him.

"Wonder Woman" Skateboard Wiz (1978)
The fact that she adds on all the right safety gear makes it even better, IMO. A+ role model.
Pretty sure this gif set was inevitable. And has just improved my week 100%
This is the gifset to make any bad day better.

One problem with going on Tumblr, whenever I see a post with older pictures of a celebrity, I brace myself for it to say RIP at the end.

The situation is just intolerable.
There have been a lot of really insightful write-ups recently. A broader perspective—and I almost cringe to say—catch-all by Molly Crabapple left me gasping for breath. This write up, by Elizabeth Sampat giving her thoughts on an industry that’s very dear to me, delivered the final blow and left me in tears.
It’s really rare that I create from a place of grief. It’s just not how I operate. But it’s largely what I have openly felt for the last few days, and reflecting on it, it’s been there for far longer.
This quote from Elizabeth’s piece— “We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone.”— struck a very literal chord in me.
So yeah, here it is. A place just for me where I can light a candle and remember all of the wonderful people I probably will never get the chance to meet. Folks that have been driven away by these horrible fucks that have the audacity to think they know what gaming and community is about.
I have never, in my life, been ashamed to call myself a gamer. Until now. These misogynist little shitbags are a disgrace to our community.
All of us who care about gaming need to step up and save our community, while there is still something about it that’s worth saving.
As a gaymer I’m seriously appalled about how my own little community is reacting. We’ve been erased, given a big, oblivious “Ew” when we suggest we’d like to see male characters sexualized as much as female characters are, straight male gamers act like acknowledging our existence is discriminating against them — our issues aren’t very different, we have it much better but we should be able to sympathize. But, no. They’d rather take the side that thinks the proper reaction to someone saying “Here is a troubling theme we should think about” is to make public rape threats.
I think I just discovered the greatest question in the history of game shows.
