Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.

This is Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo (Child).
She received $1700 dollars in donations from fans all around the world. Instead of keeping it for herself, using it for pageants, or for something else, she purchased toys for needy children in her area.
Her family gives to the needy AND supports equality for gays? Fuck you to whoever disses her. She’s 7 and shows more compassion than most people three times her age.

She’s my queen.

That is totally for publicity!

oh my god you’re right
let’s ignore this canned food drive they held too

oh right and this? $1300 in cash donated by fans to buy just THIS image of all these toys?
and oh shi-

this extreme amount of TOYS AND FOOD donated in a SINGLE night via their Christmas meet and greets with Santa (which Sugarbear dresses as Santa in the sweltering Georgia winter heat for hours at a time)
is all
publicity
and the fact that they take pictures of themselves with the *ALL* letters and trinkets their fans send them?

oh gosh, yes, this is totally publicity

Seriously, no one has any reason to talk crap on this family. They have never done a single thing wrong and look at all of the good they do for their community.

People hate them because they are Southern, overweight, and successful while still managing to be wonderful people.

Anonymous ASKED:
BBC Sherlock's Sherlock is actually canonically queer! Just thought I should let you know!

themountainandtheviper:

Earlier on twitter, I was discussing Elementary and BBC Sherlock and how queer characters are/should be represented, so I’m assuming this anon is about that.
I found this wonderful post, and I’ll use it to compare the two shows.
The Bechdel Test. This is a test that measures female representation in media via three qualifications: 1) having at least two named female characters, 2) who talk to each other for at least 60 seconds, 3) about something other than men.
The Troy and Abed Test. This is a test that measures POC representation in media via three qualifications: 1) having at least two named POC characters, 2) who talk at least once, 3) and who aren’t cultural stereotypes.
The Will and Jack Test. This is a test that measures queer representation in media via three qualifications: 1) has at least two named queer characters, 2) who talk to each other at least once, 3) and whose queer status isn’t treated as a joke and isn’t overemphasized.

To pass a test, the show must pass all three individual qualifications. 

SHERLOCK

Bechdel Test: Fail (1/3)

At least two named female characters: Pass (Irene, Mrs. Hudson, Molly, Sally, Sarah, Athena, a few girls whom John dates)

Who talk to each other at least once for at least 60 seconds: Fail (an anon pointed out to me that Molly and Mrs. Hudson talk in “A Scandal in Belgravia”; but I timed the conversation and it was barely 10 seconds long. Thus, fail)

Not about men: Fail

Troy and Abed Test: Fail (1/3)

At least two named POC characters: Pass (Sally, Soo-Lin)

Who talk to each other at least once: Fail

And aren’t racial stereotypes: Fail (Soo-Lin is a pure, delicate, refugee of sorts; the entire [mostly unnamed] gang in “The Blind Banker” exist only as a shady, stupid Chinese Mafia)

Will and Jack Test: Fail (0/3)

At least two named LGBT+ characters: Fail

Who talk to each other at least once: Fail

And whose LGBT+ status isn’t a joke: Fail

BBC Sherlock manages to fail all three tests.

ELEMENTARY

Bechdel Test: Pass (3/3)

At least two named female characters: Pass (Joan, Ms. Hudson, Irene/Jamie, Pam)

Who talk to each other at least once: Pass

About something other than men: Pass 

Troy and Abed Test: Pass (3/3)

At least two named POC characters: Pass (Joan, Detective Bell, Oren, Alfredo, multiple minor characters)

Who talk to each other at least once: Pass

And aren’t racial stereotypes: Pass

Will and Jack Test: Fail (2/3)

At least two named LGBT+ characters: Pass (Ms. Hudson and Crabtree, also a few minor characters like Gaye and the two women involved in an affair in 2x15 Corpse de Ballet)

Who talk to each other at least once: Fail (unless you count off-screen, then you could say that the affair in 2x15 would make it a pass) 

And whose LGBT+ status isn’t played as a joke: Pass 

Final count:
BBC Sherlock: 2/9
Elementary: 8/9

As you can clearly see, Elementary does much better than BBC Sherlock in representation of queer characters, characters of color, and female characters.

Also, like the original author said, Elementary has a trans woman where her gender is not played off as a joke and isn’t the only part of her character, which is amazing.

Have fun defending BBC Sherlock's “queer” character as good representation.

The oldest University in the world was founded by an African woman, Fatima al-Fihri in 859. Al-Karaouine, built in Fez, Morocco predates European Universities such as Oxford by three hundred years. Africans studies the Universe and Astronomy, hence, you get the word Univers-ity.

In case you dudes weren’t sure whether or not it’s easy for us to tell a guy no and have him respect our answer.

I hope this gets all the attention
