This is making me really sad
Holy shit I didn’t realize there were that few tigers
PROTECT BIG CATS AT ALL COST
I remember seeing a documentary some time ago about declining tiger populations. Although I can’t remember the name of it (or the network), I did find this link which includes lack of prey animals, shrinking habitats, and extremely compromised genetic diversity among the major causes.
How can people still think that poaching is worth it?! People are ignorant pricks.

robots who are really bad at math and when people are like “shouldnt you be good at math since you’re a computer” and the robot is just like “shouldnt you be an expert in biology since you’re made of cells”
I can’t wait till AI tech reaches the point of sass.
Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
Um I’m just going to add, Ke$ha actually does write her own songs. For example, here’s her first album’s tracklist:
She has also ritten for other artists, probably most famously “‘Till The World Ends” by Britney Spears, which is part of why she’s on the remix of it. She wrote for years and was even the female voice on Flo Rida’s “Right Round” but refused to be credited because she didn’t want her first single to not be her own work. She spent years, starting at the age of 15, writing music before she came out with her album because she wanted to make sure it was all her own and all what she wanted to do.
You can even get all her unreleased music which, combined with her actual albums, is 10.3 hours according to my iTunes playlist. Some artists have been around for twice as long as her and haven’t written that many songs.
Not only have critics proclaimed she could be a country star if she ever leaves the pop music business (which is showcased on her unreleased track “Goodbye”), but she’s actually the daughter of a very talented country songwriter. Her music is actually fairly well praised by the music critics community and if you listened to any of her songs that her record won’t let her release as singles—“Last Goodbye”, “The Harold Song”, “Only Wanna Dance With You”, any of her ballads—she can write multiple styles of songs. She’s just stuck in a box of what she can release and then shallow minded people call her dumb for having fun.
That’s a big fuck you for hating Ke$ha.
This changed my negative view on her to a positive one thank you so much. I didn’t realize how narrow-minded I was being…
If you hate Kesha, I hate you. She’s amazing.
I can’t say I like he rmusic but good for her.

002 | send me a ship and I will tell you
when of if I started shipping it: I STARTED SHIPPING IT AFTER I READ THIS FIC
my thoughts: i want so much more angst with them like i am so starved for eposette angst i cant even put it into words
What makes me happy about them: girls, parallels, idk
What makes me sad about them: eponine died also its not canon
things done in fanfic that annoys me: /?????? there really isnt enough fanfic for me to be picky
things I look for in fanfic:
to be honest i read a lot of eposette smut.and other than that i guess just longfics and slow build and good characterizations??
My kinks: cosette being really rough
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: cosette/marius, eponine/montparnasse
My happily ever after for them: they join an elite group of female spies and kick some butt
who is the big spoon/little spoon: eponine is the big spoon because shes a little taller
what is their favorite non-sexual activity: playing pranks on marius
-we surf to school
-if we don’t say “dude” at least 10 times a day we will die
-same with “like”
-we cry when it’s 60 degrees Fahrenheit bc it’s cold
Wow… I live in Cali and this ^ is offensive. Congrats.
these statements as entirely accurate facts, and i commend you for your truth friend
well she IS perfect she’s my perfect little baby (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*: ･ﾟ✧
ok but seriously
this will probably get long i’m sorry
first of all, i dont think your statement ‘the les mis fandom always treats eponine like she’s perfect’ is true. i think this might have been true a year ago, when the les mis fandom exploded because the movie came out, and most people (including myself) had no idea what they were talking about. i, and many others, had only seen the movie, and the movie kind of does portray eponine as perfect (perfect is the wrong word, since she’s also portrayed as depressed and stuff but she’s portrayed as a very noble and selfless, good person)
so i honestly dont have a problem with that at all. like, its not correct, obviously. eponine is a very flawed and selfish character, but would i ever get mad at someone for mischaracterizing her just because they didnt feel like reading a 1000 page novel from 1862? of course not. i’d correct them, but i wouldn’t be upset at all
NOW, after numerious powerpoints and metas have been put up, and lots of people have read the brick, i think the les mis fandom acknowledges eponine’s selfishness. i think there are a lot of fics and headcanons that don’t portray her flaws, but eponine is such a complicated character, and getting her right is really, really difficult. especially in a modern au, or a college au setting, where she’s aged up. and honestly i think we do a pretty good job
and, i guess i’m going to just add this: in my opinion, eponine is PRETTY DAMN PERFECT for being FIFTEEN/SIXTEEN and having grown up the way she did. yes, she was selfish, but she didnt know any better. her dad literally did the best he could to teach her to be that way so that he could use her for his own purposes. not to mention that she herself was physically and mentally abused really, really badly
in her world, it was look out for yourself or die. putting her own needs before the needs of others was all she knew how to do.
and despite having this HORRIBLE life, she’s a really jovial and optimistic person. whenever she’s talking to marius, she’s always upbeat (a lot more so than he was, and his life was so much easier than hers was). even when she’s dying, she finds something to be happy about. she takes great pleasure in simple things, like reading and looking at herself in the mirror. she’s confident and smart and cunning and intimidating enough to scare off a group of thugs. and YES, she’s manipulative and dishonest. but like i said, she didnt know any better
did i mention shes fifteen/sixteen because thats so important
my point in adding this is to let you know that, IN MY OPINION, eponine deserves the utmost respect and reverence from the les mis fandom.
More casual reminders [Cosette Edition]:
- Cosette spent almost five of her most formative years surviving really horrendous abuse (physical, mental, and emotional) and wondering if she even had a mother…
- …but she grew up into the most loving character in the entire story…
idk i made a gavroche appreciation post a while ago and people replied to it and commented and added headcanons and stuff but im too lazy to find it right now so
ok first of all he is REALLY short for his age. like, he hangs out with 20 year olds all the time, but even compared to other eleven year olds, he’s pretty short. and he’s skinny.
and he idolizes enjolras. but that includes an element of competition. like, he wants to be just like enjolras and that includes wrapping his hair around his his fingers and pretending that its curly (his hair is actually straight as a stick and super thin) but he also wants to be even cooler than enjolras is one day.
he calls combeferre a nerd all the time and one time he told combeferre that he was going to write “egalite’ on his arm one time but instead he wrote n00b. and combeferre calls gavroche a nerd all the time too
and he has the biggest little brown eyes in the entire world and super ridiculously long eyelashes and courfeyrac is super jealous and always tells him that his eyelashes are gorgeous and then one day gavroche shows up to a meeting with short eyelashes because he cut them and he hands them to courfeyrac and courfeyrac is like ‘omg eww!!!’
he’s the only person who can CONSISTENTLY make grantaire smile. most of the time he does it by sitting on the table that grantaire’s practically sleeping on and calling enjolras a nerd
and he wears his hair in a ponytail and his ponytail is tiny because his hair is really short and thin but it looks really really cute
and then when he gets to be like 14 or so its like BAM. growth spurt. and he shoots up like five inches and then he’s average height and he’s really skinny, but he doesnt really have enough money to afford new clothes. and courfeyrac offers his own clothes to gavroche and gavroche laughs because most of courfeyrac’s clothes are ridiculous (gorgeous and elegant, but way nice to wear in public, especially if you’re a fourteen year old boy) and anyways courfeyrac is really short so gavroche is taller than him p quickly
(some sort of au where no one dies at the barricades) and then so after the barricades, gavroche and marius are tight because of marius’ little heroic act during the first attack. and marius is a huge dork and obviously gavroche notices that, but like whenever anyone else calls marius a huge dork gavroche calls them out
and then marius and cosette start dating and gavroche turns into this super protective little brother figure for marius, and he tells cosette that she better not break marius’s heart and stuff, but then she just pats him on the head and tells him that hes really sweet and cute, and then of course he huffs and crosses his arms and insists that hes not cute, he’s really tough. and she’s like ‘you’re right, i’m sorry, tell me more about what model your gun is,’ and he does and so then the two of them become bffs
and im sorry this got long
