This might be my new favorite Bucky post
My reaction the first time I watched Star Wars.
Look Darren took his dog on a walk how cute
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!
And I and anyone that identifies themselves as a Darren Criss fan should not tolerate this kind of talk or behavior. Consider this me not tolerating your hateful attacks on a woman you do not know. The man you claim to be a fan of ardently espouses this little moral nugget: no one likes an asshole.
I don’t care if you’re not a fan of Mia’s music or if you don’t like the FACT that Mia and Darren are together BUT DO NOT VICIOUSLY AND CARELESSLY DEGRADE HER! She is a human being who bleeds red just like the rest of us.
Words, just like actions, have consequences. Words can harm, trigger, wound, and maim. Words — ideas — can alter the course of a single moment. Be careful with your words. Take care in how you employ them. Be mindful of how you speak of people. How you treat and speak of the people you don’t like speaks more volumes of your character than how you treat and speak of the people you do like.
This has nothing to do with CrissColfer, Miarren or Chill. This is about human decency. In a world obsessed with instant gratification, the narrowing scope of a global community and the immediate access we all have with just a few keystrokes, it is so easy to hide behind computer screens and social media handles and personas to proffer opinions, thoughts, beliefs, and ideas. Use that power for good, not evil; for love, not hate.
If you want to ship CrissColfer, ship CrissColfer. If you want to ship Chill and Miarren, ship Chill and Miarren. I don’t care either way. But do so with respect. Do so with integrity. Do so with tact. Those two people in this photograph are exactly that — two people, two individuals, two autonomous agents with their own personalities, thoughts, belief systems, and feelings. They deserve to be treated like all human beings deserve to be treated — with care, concern, and respect.
Remember that what we say on the Internet stays on the Internet. It is never gone, never deleted. Take heed of that. Also, remember those two people in the photograph know how to use the same social media avenues we do.
Just — be nice.
Things some people in the Glee fandom do not seem to get: fandom and shipping does not excuse your gross and blatant misogyny.
And yes, calling a woman a dog that belongs to her boyfriend is misogynistic.
It’s funny how you guys put so much time and effort into typing an essay on a post on something nobody gives a fuck about besides you.
It’s funny how you take the time and effort to reply to a post that attempts to work against the socially constructed system you so spectacularly and gracelessly stumbled into with your hurtful, tactless drivel. It’s funny how you can’t even see the damage you’re doing, not to Mia, not to Darren, but to women-at-large and even yourself.
If you’re unclear or unsure what socially constructed system with which I’m addressing, it is misogyny. It is the calculated, practiced, and performed behaviors of degrading women. It is ingrained prejudice and men are not the only culprits of such rampant discrimination. Sure, the majority of practitioners are men but women also practice this — women attack other women, for any number of reasons, including jealousy, ignorance, competition or just outright meanness. Women attack other women because we are programmed to keep each other in check and such a comment demonstrates that you feel that Mia has overstepped her boundaries, has somehow violated some invisibly drawn line and therefore she must be “put in her place.”
Thank you ever so kindly for playing into patriarchy and highlighting to us all that marginalization is alive and well, thriving brilliantly in the forms of ignorance. This comment is both a moral crime and a tool of social control, signifying that you inexplicably believe that by being in public with Darren she has committed some sort of trespass against you and therefore must be reminded, with degradation and discrimination, that she has no right to move through any space — public or private — with a man you do not know and who most certainly does not know you.
Furthermore, Mia becomes a sign of a much larger issue and that’s your glaring lack of care and knowledge about this. I don’t care if you don’t care — I’ll happily continue to reply to any comments of disregard and puzzling coldness towards this, which not only affects women, but men as well because misogyny does affect men. It allows boys to grow up into stunted, short-sighted, close-minded men; it allows boys to shuck off responsibility and drown in privilege — privilege that tricks them into believing they’ve somehow inherently earned power and authority because they were born with a penis, privilege that tricks them into believing they automatically and perpetually have consent to take whoever and whatever they want.
I’ll happily continue to reply because I have taken a personal interest, nay an investment in combating such rampant attacks against women because as a woman, I walk around in my life, in my profession feeling endangered simply because I was born with breasts and a vagina.
And this system, this practice of yours will hurt you as well and that makes me sad for you — mostly because I don’t think you’ll have any idea that you’ve been hurt…
Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)
A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.
this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10
For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.
My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one. Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.
This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing

WHY IS THIS SO FUNNY
Ok so this is a picture of my eye after I started using a skin cream that I saw featured on Oprah’s show. I am amazed with the results! Before my eyes looked tired and I hate to say it, but old and kinda wrinkly, even though I’m only 18. I found this website here that offers a free trial and this is where I got mine :)
I just ordered my free trial from that site. And by the way you are super pretty and your eyeliner is on point!
