Question with 14 notes

cumaeansibyl said: Haven't seen you around for a bit, how's it going? I have a very important question. See, I reblogged this picture of a sexy cake that looks like Glenn Danzig and that made me wonder if he is a sex panther or just a shouty man who doesn't like sleeves. Thanks for your time, Auntie Gorgo!

This is a tough one, because let’s face it, lots of large shouty men secretly yearn to be sex panthers.  Despite his elaborately terrible hair, Danzig also looks a bit too clean to be a sex panther.  That said, he is easily charmed, almost even tamed, by women, as the photo below documents:

My guess is that his species could be determined with closer study, but so far, we haven’t had any takers.  It’s a true loss to Science.

Yours,

AG

Quote reblogged from Gothic Charm School: pretty things with 174 notes

Gothic fiction…seems particularly, if not aggressively, open to interpretation from social, political, and sexual points of view. The gothic novel achieves this interpretative license precisely because it reflects in perhaps predictable, but nonetheless often powerful, ways the anxiety that the force of culture generates. In its excess, gothic fiction thereby challenges the cultural system that commodifies desire and renders it lurid and pathologicial.
— George E. Haggerty; Queer Gothic (via theladylovesmonsters)

Vampire doctors that can smell if you have a blood disease.

Werewolf therapy animals for sick kids.

Nature sprite and nymph nurses that always make sure people have pretty flowers to brighten up their white rooms.

Fauns that go around and sing and dance for patients so that they smile.

Nice monster hospitals would be amazing

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.

IDK how many Ohio people see my blog, but just in case…
