This ecstatically awesome portrait of Mister Spock riding a winged unicorn over a star-spangled rainbow was created by Brooklyn-based artist and illustrator Tim O’Brien for an issue of Men’s Health. As soon as we saw it we felt better about pretty much everything. We also love the fact that, despite the fantastic circumstances, the expression on Spock’s face is as stoic as ever.
There’s an informative blurb and yet I’m left with more questions than answers.
I laughed until I cried looking at this.

"How do you choose not to feel?"
"I do not know. Right now, I am failing."
Okay, can we talk about this just for a second? Because I. Loved. This.
Hear me out: When some people think of Dean Winchester they think of just a shallow womanizer. However, in the past, Dean has shown that he tends to be attracted to minorities more than the conventional prettiness of a white, blonde, thin, pouty lipped busty woman. The fact that he is flirting with this girl who is not “attractive” by NORMAL SOCIETY STANDARDS makes me really love Dean all that much more. I mean, how many of us were watching this and thought, Dean’s gonna flirt with that girl! I wasn’t. I thought he wasn’t going to give her a second glance. I mean look at her in all her punky glory — studs and a collar and not perfect hair and crazy eyeliner and dark lipstick — I mean, she’s probably a sassy bitch who takes no shit from anyone and Dean is flirting with her. It makes me want to fly in to the sun screaming “DEAN WINCHESTER IS NOT A SHALLOW DOUCHE WHO ONLY LIKES STRIPPERS WITH BIG TITS!”
I don’t know why this moved me so much. Maybe it’s because so much of the fandom is convinced the Dean is only interested in girls, and only interested in conventionally pretty girls at that. Neither of which is true.
Reason #553908432 why I love Dean fucking Winchester.
Don’t forget Dean’s first love is Cassie, not your typical blonde busty shallow chick
“The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.”
BREAKING: Two Texas Reproductive Health Clinics Close, a Harbinger of a Coming Access Crisis
Two more reproductive health clinics—one an abortion provider—in underserved areas of Texas closed their doors this week, as the effects of the omnibus anti-abortion access billpassed last summer with the support of conservative lawmakers continue to unfold across the state.
Both now-shuttered clinics, in McAllen and Beaumont, are part of the Whole Woman’s Health group, which once had five facilities in Texas: in Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, McAllen, and Beaumont. As of this week, the organization will be down to three locations. And come September, when abortion providers are required to meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers, there will be just one Whole Woman’s left, in San Antonio. At that time, it will be one of six abortion providers left in a state that, according to data from Texas Department of State Health Services, sees about 70,000 legal abortion procedures performed each year.
“It’s hard for me to feel like I’m giving up, letting people down,” Whole Woman’s Health CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller told RH Reality Check.But when her doctors can’t get admitting privileges in socially conservative communities, and she can’t afford the million-dollar retrofitting required to turn her small clinics into hospital-like surgical centers, she said, “there’s no miracle way to pay the bills.”
The two shuttered clinics were both located in communities where poverty rates are high and many residents are un- or under-insured. The Beaumont facility, in southeast Texas, was the only provider between Houston and Louisiana, while the McAllen facility, in the Rio Grande Valley, served clients in the poorest city in the United States.
Carlos and Cecil reach an angst-ridden agreement that he is allowed to cut his hair twice a year, based on the average human hair growth rate of 0.44 millimeters a day. This achieves “maximum lushness” without sacrificing hygiene or requiring a hairnet in the lab.
The first few times are always the hardest.
If you don’t like Sam Winchester, or think he and Cas aren’t friends, you’re wrong.
"The real world isn’t like that"
Yes, I know. We know.
Why do you think we’re trying to create a safe space, with trigger warnings, without slurs, where people actually treat us like we deserve respect?
Because we know what the real world is like. And the real world treats us like shit.
