Whenever I see things that point out the privilege I probably have, my first instinct is to get really pissed off. I’ve considered deleting my tumblr just to keep myself away from the kind of stuff that makes me so angry I can’t turn away or leave it alone.
How things usually go from that point is that I’ll read more into it, take a few deep breaths, and think about how they’re right. I think to myself ‘you were conditioned to resist change’ and it’s usually enough to help me force myself to become a (marginally) better person.
And then there’s people who bitch about homestuck or Andrew Hussie.
I can’t even articulate how angry I feel when I try to bruteforce my way past the indignance and into the substance of the actual issue and I just find that there isn’t any.
I spent an hour tonight reading homestuck callout blogs. It was mostly just a bunch of angry Kankris bitching about people tone-policing them. There was barely anything about any problems with homestuck. And even less about problems I didn’t already know about. I really hate that I couldn’t find anything to agree with them on. Because now I just have this lasting directionless anger.
This is so far removed from any kind of relevance or gravity. But I guess I feel better putting this stuff where someone might read it than putting it on my hard drive.
one of these days i’m going to do one of those fandom introduction posts about meerkat manor because jesus christ what was that show
a camera crew went out into the desert and filmed a bunch of meerkats doing meerkat stuff and then put voiceover over it and made it a soap opera fucking. fucking meerkat manor i swear to god people need to be aware of meerkat manor
When I first heard about Duck Dynasty I thought it was that with ducks.
Ezra Miller is not the first LGBTQ actor to be cast in a major superhero franchise. Alan Cumming and Anna Paquin are both bisexual and were in the XMen franchise as Nightcrawler and Rogue.
Update: AND Ian McKellen AND Ellen Page. So clearly the XMen franchise is not very straight.
"Don’t take ~chemicals~ like prozac, I heard you can get the same effect by eating 19 oranges a day, that’s only 570 oranges a month!!!"
"Yeah I know you have horrible panic attacks but like, have you tried yoga?"
"Yeah I understand depression completely stops you from doing everyday tasks AND that you then feel guilty about that… But you have to just power through it and get on with things as normal!"
So every morning I get off the train and start my 20 minute walk to work, and there’s this guy who’s always like 3 steps ahead of me and always beats me to the street corner bc I get stopped by the light and he passes it. but today I was ahead of him for the first time and he RUNS in front of me, turns around and goes “I’ve been winning for 2 months, can’t stop now, have a good day, see you tomorrow.” tmrw I swear i’m wearing running shoes to work.
New Au idea.
