the best part about this, without a doubt, is Jeremy Renner having no idea at all how to celebrate a win at football.
This is Princess Dead Pool. My 3 year old told me EXACTLY how she wanted the costume to look and walked me through the entire thing, bossing me around. It was so much fun.
Always reblog Princess Deadpool.

All the deadpools posing with princess deadpool give me life.

I am on vacation so did not see the reaction to some of my posts yesterday, or I would have responded sooner. As a heads up, I am going to return to vacation momentarily and won’t be back until Friday.
But I want to apologize for an earlier tumblr post in which I captioned Hazel and Gus’s…
can we all shut up about it now?
I am so sick of seeing John Green hate on my dash and I have just been unfollowing every single person who posts it because I’m bored of dealing with it but seriously. Everyone says stupid stuff sometimes. Unfortunately on the internet it doesn’t go away no matter how many times you own up to it and apologize for it. But I have yet to see a legitimate complaint about something John has said that he hasn’t responded to and apologized for. We are human. We all say wrong and offensive shit sometimes whether we realize it or not. Some people, like John, use it as a learning experience. He acknowledged that he was wrong and apologized and yet people will not let it go.
There are bigger problems out there than this, like every actual asshole out there who continues to be offensive and doesn’t give a shit no matter how many times they get called out. Who are intentionally offensive. Who legitimately do not give a shit.
Yes, call people out when they say offensive/wrong things but jesus christ stop demonizing every person who makes a mistake. And when they own up to it and apologize for it accept it and let it the fuck go. You all say problematic shit too. We all do sometimes. We’re just lucky enough not to be famous when we do it.
This piece at Vice is really worth reading…even though it’s really depressing. But if you were wondering why our government is so ridiculously unable to do anything about gun violence in my country it’s because nearly half of people own guns, a good portion of those are /really/ passionate hobbyists and…
…wait for it…
…there are more guns in this country than there are human beings.
My original quote was…
You say not all men are monsters?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.
Go ahead. Eat a handful.
Not all M&Ms are poison.
This was merely an explanation of why women and female presenting folks are cautious of men. Especially after recent events.
But you want to take an analogy about an oppressive group and try substituting marginalized groups in their stead? I don’t see how that is the same.
I feel like you think you have a super clever “gotcha” point there, but honestly you are just being racist and using false equivalencies.
Try replacing men with other oppressive groups and suddenly the analogy works again.
Not all CEOs are corrupt?
Not all police use brutal force?
Not all of the conservative leadership are racist, sexist bags of crap?
Not all of the congressional committees for reproductive rights are chaired by a bunch of old white dudes?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 98% of them are poison.
Throw them up in the air and move to the moon.
The analogy seems to still work when other oppressive groups are substituted. The way it was intended to be understood.
Men are saying that women have no reason to fear them and are bad people if they do. Yet every woman has experienced harassment. Catcalled in the street. Many have been groped. Many face constant sexism in the workplace. And have you seen what happens when a woman opens an OKCupid account? Worst of all, 1 in 6 have been sexually assaulted. That is an astounding statistic.
Talk to pretty much any woman and you will find that they have not just one story of men scaring the bejesus out of them… they have many. This is not an insignificant problem where they can throw caution to the wind and start trusting all the menfolk.
And when these shootings happened and it was revealed that a huge component of this person’s anger was that women rejected him, the prospect of merely rejecting the advances of men has become an even more frightening matter than it already was.
Fear is not something easily controlled and you want to tell women to turn it off like a light switch?
We are not properly educating our youth about consent. We are not properly teaching men that they have no entitlement to a woman’s body. We still have common phrases like, “Wearing her down” and “playing hard to get.” That Blurred Lines song was an anthem for dudebros across the nation.
Until we take major steps to destroy this attitude of entitlement, teach people that rejection is a normal part of life that should not be seen as some grave insult or a challenge to be conquered—woman and female presenting folks are going to have a cautious fear of men.
If you want to stop being seen as a danger, the onus is on us as men. We need to start teaching each other how to stop seeing women as prizes to be won. We need to eliminate this culture of entitlement.
So a friend of mine had the misfortune of dealing with rape culture from a police officer. She gave me the permission to post this on Tumblr so the name of this officer and her story can spread.
So let’s be serious for a second guys please -
Last night around 2 a.m. my friends and I decided to take a drive around Hutchinson island, and when upon returning into Sewall’s Point we made a stop underneath the causeway. We decided to stop, listen to music, and stand outside the car. Not intoxicated, not under any substance abuse, and not in the possession of any weapons - we were having clean wholesome dumb teenage fun. Without doing anything incriminating it still was unfortunately interrupted by Officer Scott Donlon, when he drove around the causeway and approached us with his lights on. We turned down the music and waited for him to approach us outside my friends car. The lights almost made it impossible for us to see his face or communicate with him without holding my arm in front of my face.
He walks up to us and says,
"I sure as hell can’t wait to hear this story."
I took the liberty to talk for my friends, because they were visibly intimidated and frightened by this officer.
"Honestly officer, we were on our way to the beach when we decided that it was probably too late and unsafe. We decided on our drive back to stop here and enjoy ourselves. We are good people. None of us are under the influence or intoxicated we are more than willing to take a breathalyzer if you have any suspicion that we are."
That’s when he made the most disturbing comment of all,
"Yeah because running around in your underwear -"
I couldn’t believe it, he decided that my outfit of choice constituted as underwear to him. My floral top that showed my mid-drift and my high-waisted shorts was something he was going to demean and call “underwear”?
I tried my hardest not to be rude to him, but I responded with,
"That’s extremely rude and offensive sir. I don’t think my outfit should be considered underwear."
He continued to walk around my friends car trying to be intimidating and aggressive, so I spoke again:
"Sir, are you detaining us?"
Which he responded, “Yes.”
So I said, “What for?”
"For wearing underwear."
I was fuming. I was disgusted. I was baffled. I couldn’t believe that right before my very eyes rape culture was brought to light by this officer.
Again everyone - Scott Donlon, Officer of Sewall’s Point, who’s name I asked for because I was not going to let this white old privileged male think he could demean the four of us.
Luckily another officer, rolled up to us in the middle of this, he who was much kinder and diffused the situation by saying,
"Do not try him, you need to just give him respect. You could make things so much worse for yourself."
I wanted to say,
"What!? Excuse me? It’s your job to protect us, not to make us feel like our lives are threatened because he decided that he wants to be intimidating?"
Instead I said to the other officer,
"Officer, I mean no offense, and I’m sorry if I upset him, but he told us we were being detained for wearing underwear. Look at the four of us, we may be showing our stomachs, but we’re fully clothed and that’s by no means okay."
"Well if he says you’re being detained. You’re being detained."
We were never detained.
It was all an intimidation tactic, and because of course it wasn’t worth the fight, I apologized for MY behavior and for disrespecting HIM. I let him continue to say I was running around in my “underwear.” I continued to let him say, “If I was in a bad mood tonight, I could have got you in so much more trouble.” I continued to let him discriminate my age by saying “I don’t need some 19 year old giving me attitude thinking she knows the law better than me.” I continued to let him completely dominate the situation and degrade us.
I’m not okay with this, I’m not okay with another officer fluffing his ego because he has some fucked up authoritative mentality.
Below I’ll add the photo of the outfit I was wearing, you guys let me know if I missed out on the memo of what defines underwear now.
If you actually took the time to go through my terrible grammar and read all of this ridiculous nonsense - thank you so much thank you thankyoouuu.
If you add his name ( Scott Donlon ) and people reblog with his name then it will show up in google search results as each person reblogging it is technically posting his name with the story on a separate webpage
