Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

ushas42 asked: I didn't know Anna Paquin was bi until I saw it in your tags. That's cool! But yeah, the HuffPo article that seems to have started all this thinks that Ian doesn't count because he plays a bad guy (who's only a bad guy like 70% of the time) and Ellen doesn't count because she came out after she was cast, and Anna and Alan don't even get a mention, because bisexuals? What are those? But I think it's worth saying "Wow, this franchise seems to attract queer actors, out or otherwise. Wonder whyyy?"

The HuffPo writer is obviously a fool. But seriously! Does Marvel have any queer actors who aren’t part of the X-Men franchise? (Serious question, actually—I can’t think of anyone else off the top of my head, but I could be wrong?) 

Also it’s so fascinating that he’s inclined to say “these guys don’t count because they’re villains/confusing/weren’t out to begin with” in a franchise that’s literally entirely about how the dangers of navigating difference, both visibly and invisibly. LIKE. “mutant and proud” may be an embarrassing clunky line to hang a movie around, but HOW DO STILL YOU NOT GET IT
