Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!
“The Salvation Army doesn’t believe that gays and lesbians should ever know the intimacy of any loving relationship, instead teaching that ‘Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.’" - (source)
“Salvation Army Major: LGBT People Should Be Put to Death" - (source)
“The Salvation Army openly says that ‘practicing homosexuals’ aren’t welcome in their organization and they have lobbyists in D.C. and abroad who work to prevent gay rights legislation from being enacted." - (source)
“The Salvation Army does not only discriminate against gay and lesbian people, it also works politically against LGBT rights all over the world." - (source)

So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.

—Doctor Who Theme
New Doctor Who theme alterations for the 12th Doctor revealed.
This is why I gave up on this show. I used to sit down on the bed and watch the old Doctor Who on T.V. with little brother and sister and my Mum. We used to absolutely love it. When the new Doctors showed up, still good! Really good. Then things started getting ridiculously mental and childish and stupid a little while after 11 showed up (don’t get me wrong, he’s a brilliant actor, and I don’t blame him for anything), and now the show had just fucking gone downhill. Please don’t tell me this is actual music for the new Doctor. Please just tell me it’s not. Jesus fucking Christ this show has been butchered.
human life is incredible
I hate the excessive need to “modernize” everything in TV. It’s like, this wouldn’t be so bad if they actually made it still feel sci-fi, but now it’s this weird new-age bullshit, like they’re trying too hard to be “progressive”. I know I’m making a big deal out of a THEME SONG maybe, but thing is, they’ll probably end up carrying this ideology into the series itself. Where the fuck are things going.
it keeps happening
Sometimes, I fucking hate Steven Moffat for what he’s done to Doctor Who. Look, I know I’m fairly new to the show-having only come in during Matt Smith’s first season, but I went back and watched every episode of the old series and Moffat has just completely altered the tone. He’s trying to make it his own creation, which is fucking despicable, to mess with something as perfect as Doctor Who. I know it’s just a theme song, and I know the difference isn’t that drastic, but it fucking sickens me sometimes.
never forget my legacy
this had me crying with laughter at 2 47 am
this is fantastic
the-blooming-lotus asked: Can you do a top 5 most bad ass Aang moments gifset?
I definitely could manage that. Let’s gets this badass list started:
#5 — Effortlessly Awesome
Aang pulls off this wonderful juxtaposition between a kid that loves running around chasing penguins but also nonchalantly being an incredibly skilled fighter. Case and point in the wonderfully staged attack on the Earth King’s palace. Just 9 episodes ago he couldn’t move a rock to save his life, now without looking he bitchslaps a massive bolder into dust. It’s this amazing combination of his lighthearted personality mixed with an amazing fighting presence and complete lack of arrogance that makes this moment, and Aang in general, so great.
#4 — Outsmarts His Enemies
Aang doesn’t get enough credit for his intelligence. For such a young guy he is remarkably good at reading people and their weaknesses. This is brilliantly exemplified by his fight with Zhao up on the ships in The Deserter. He recognises Zhao’s lack of restraint and promptly skips around the place insulting him. Aang doesn’t throw a single punch yet he comprehensively wins the fight because Zhao destroys his only means of transportation. This is an experienced war commander losing to a 12 year old pacifist. It’s brilliant.
#3 — Charms The Pants Off Anyone
One of the defining interpersonal traits that Aang has that makes him such a great person and even better Avatar is his heartwarming charm. He throws a dance party for a group of kids that have been socialized to hate everything he stands for as the Avatar. But Aang recognizes they are the future of the Fire Nation and that showing them a glimpse of freedom is the best he can do for them in that moment in time. And as Toph rightly points out, who knew Twinkletoes could dance? It’s such a great moment as it shows everything Aang is as an Avatar — committed, generous and graced with impeccable timing.
#2 — It’s Not Over
Who knew having a staring contest with a glowing fish could be this awesome? Well it is. Music, cinematography and atmosphere all combine perfectly to make an unforgettable moment in the S1 finale. Aang enters the Avatar State through sheer force of will. The music rises as he stands in the center of the oasis while the Koi fish circles him. Then it all goes silent as he descends into the pitch blackness of the pond and emerges as a really awesome fish. Even Zhao would happily admit how badass this is, assuming one can talk underwater.
#1 — Even With All The Power In The World
Aang has tons of moments where he uses his guile and strength to beat opponents. Equally there are numerous times where he uses the Avatar State to comprehensively overpower his enemies. But what still arguably stands out the most is that even with the ability to end his most despicable opponent, he still stays completely true to his moral beliefs. Ozai is the embodiment of an ideology that wiped out his entire people. He torments, assaults and humiliates Aang throughout their only battle. Yet when the time comes where Aang could end it all in a single moment and take the easy way out, he resists. It is testament to Aang’s character and stature that with all the power in the world he’s still just a kind hearted pacifist and that frankly makes him a complete badass.
