Laverne Cox is the most visible trans person of color in the world and she has helped millions of people to learn about trans people and the discrimination they face. I think Laverne Cox is one of the most important and influential people in the world and should’ve been included in the TIME 100.
"Fame doesn’t mean much to me, but I do love being in a position where I can help my family. That’s been a real blessing - it’s a wonderful feeling to know that after everything my parents sacrificed to get me to this place, I can now give them some peace of mind and take care of whatever they need. My family is the reason why I am where I am and who I am, and my brothers are the most important people to me. One of my brothers has a baby, and to know that I can help him pay for my nephew’s education if he ever needs it is great. My other brother really enjoys travelling, and I love that I can surprise him with a flight to Australia or wherever he wants to go. Being able to do those kinds of things for all of them is the best thing that’s ever happened to me."

I think the older I get the more I laugh, I think I’ve laughed a lot. I wish I had remembered to laugh like that when I was a teenager, and just forgive yourself and experience life, rather than being so concerned about yourself.

#i seriously do not understand i mean he’s the cutest sweetest guy to ever exist and i would have taken the damn #peanuts because why the hell does it matter if he’s short and scrawny he’s amazing and cares so much for other people #and it hurts to think that for so long he was looked down on and looked at like /that/ girl is #he’s offering you some fucking peanuts why do you look like he just offered you a handful of boogers #godammit i love steve rogers and i don’t care if he’s captain america or not he’s a wonderful human being that deserves love and happiness #and respect and people should aspire to be like him (via themouthymerc)
#sorry i have to reblog this again #i just noticed #look at the completely different expressions in the two gifs #in the first one steve’s like ‘hey i got some peanuts they’re nice maybe she wants nice peanuts as well’ #so he hands them to her with the most genuinely sweet expression on his face #because he actually thinks she might enjoy the peanuts #not because he wants her attention #and then in the second one she just turns him down without saying a word and he feels so bad about annoying her #he just doesn’t understand why she’s mad at him #but he feels sorry anyway and then he gets a little sad #and so do i
