THIS IS ACTUALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT.
NO BUT SERIOUSLY. MARTHA IS SO FUCKING HONEST THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SERIES. She loves the Doctor, but he didn’t love her back. And instead of being upset about that, she accepted it. People are allowed to love or not love whoever the fuck they want. And instead of spending her whole life obsessive about him falling I love with her (if you look back on your childhood shows you’ll probably find a few female characters that did that throughout the show) she simply “got out” so that she could move on without hurting anyone, especially herself. We could all learn a shit load of things from Martha.
Martha is amazing. I just love her to bits.
She’s probably the most underrated companion of New Who to date.
See boys, this is how you handle a “friend zone”

Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.

Stop what you are doing.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
this is always on reblog

I hate hate hate hate hate how I’m not as eloquent as a speaker as I am as a writer. I am the kind of person who sits there in silence and says “uhhh” and “like” a lot, when I don’t intend to.
Same. I say “like” all the…

let’s be honest though, eyebrow gaps are more important than thigh gaps
This is the most important thing
Frida Kahlo disagrees entirely, and I support her. I respect personal preferences, but any kind of beauty standard (“all people must have this to be good looking”) is distasteful to me. The only gap that is important to me, is the lack of gap between your ears. Eyebrows, thighs, breasts, toes, fingers, noses, all of those opportunities for prominent gaps or a lack there of are I just stopped caring about whatever it was I was saying

I’m so glad someone made a photo set that combines Valhalla Rising and Hannibal, because the characters are so connected in my head.
