reasons why halloween is the best holiday:
- you are not obliged to visit your relatives
- you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
- people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
- its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin
When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

i will never understand people who whine and grump about jean grey having omega level powers
she’s constantly punished in narrative (usually via death) for being so powerful in a way that male characters never are
she fought tooth and nail to hone and strengthen her powers (with and without the phoenix force) who are you to pretend she hasn’t earned the right to be a powerful character?
I think many male readers can’t get beyond “A woman with lots of power,” tbh…
