anglophenia:

A Sole Picture of Benedict Cumberbatch as Wet Mr. Darcy

By: Fraser McAlphine

Let’s cut to the chase. Above and below these words is a photo that, if you have not already seen it, draws the eye in such a way that it really doesn’t matter what I’m saying right now. I could be describing a perfect ploughman’s lunch, describing one of the more arcane by-laws of cricket or listing the key ingredients in mulligatawny soup for all the good it will do.

What the eye is magnetically drawn towards is this photo of Benedict Cumberbatch in a lake, an image that has come to light as part of a campaign by Cancer Research UK and the clothing shop TKMaxx called Give Up Clothes For Good.

Now, before the mind becomes inexorably soiled by mental images, the thrust (stop it) of the campaign is not that people should bare all, but that they should donate unwanted clothing and accessories to raise money to tackle childhood cancer. Benedict is one of many celebrities—including Jerry HallKate WinsletLiam Neeson and Hugh Bonneville—who’ve been photographed by Jason Bell, in a variety of eyecatching situations.

And now his images are not just being used to draw attention to the campaign, they form part of an exhibition in London’s Pall Mall, to raise further funds.

So, here’s the Mr. Darcy shot. Sadly not part of a whole new production of Pride & Prejudice, but not to be sniffed at neverthele… HEY! I said NOT to be sniffed at!

Kenneth MacAlpin is usually accepted as the first king of Scotland.  He ruled from somewhere around 841 until his death in 858.

Scotland had its own independent rulers and was a functioning independent nation for over 850 years, from 841 to 1707.

Now, after a mere 300 years of colonial English rule, there’s no way that the Scots could ever manage their own affairs?

okay

today i wore a v-neck to school, something that is totally normal for 99% of the girls there, one of the girls in my french class was wearing one similar to mine in fact.

but my french teacher came up to me and told me that i was out of dress code and that i was asking for something to happen to me.

and all day long i had to slap guys who found it perfectly okay to grab them.

im a 32DDD, 5’1, and 115 pounds. due to this im known around the school as the walking boobs, the girl who grew in other places, and BITS. I constantly get called a whore and a tease. 

Girls are always accusing their boyfriends of sleeping with me.

and there have been times when i have had to tell teachers that my eyes are up here.

i grew boobs in the eighth grade, i was a DD then, and i cant tell you how many fights i got into with guys who thought it was alright to stick their faces in them. 

the point of all of this is that its bullshit. 

i should be able to wear a v neck to school without worrying about who is going to grab my boobs next, or who is going to throw a gum wrapper in them, or what girls are going to say next.

Fuck that shit! I would report any teacher that needs to be reminded not to stare at your chest. That is not okay in any sense.

Also, I’d say screw slut-shaming, but this isn’t even a matter of dressing how one wants, but a matter of a woman’s natural state being the reason that men think it’s okay to sexual harass or assault her.

  • Large breasts are not an invitation.
  • LARGE BREASTS ARE NOT AN INVITATION.

Are we clear?

I had to reblog this because she’s not even showing that much cleavage. But she’s totally right. Large breasts are NOT AN INVITATION.
