it’s actually my 25th today
Denis Medri draws Star Wars as an 80’s high school movie
I’m a little disturbed by the amount of laughter coming from the White people in the room. Like being a woman or person of color (and even trans* because they laugh at his statement of “I’ve never been a woman”) is a joke to them. Sure they clap at the end, but, like Gambino told us we were doing, they clapping for the wrong reasons.
I’ve only said used the word problematic as a joke because it’s stupid why don’t you say what something is??? Like if something’s racist say it’s racist
Probably because ‘problematic’ addresses the social issue while saying something is racist/sexist/classist/homophobic/etc. is immediately interpreted as being a attack on the person who said something problematic. As a result, ‘problematic’ is more likely to facilitate a discussion of growth and visibility than the hissy fit people give when you call out and -ism and they haven’t checked their privilege and consider it a personal attack.
'Problematic' also accounts for intersectionality because problematic ideologies and behaviors rarely fit into one clean -ism box.
"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"
Every time I see a cat who likes to be in water, I think, “What? How do you even?!”
Then I want to see if my cat likes to be in water, but, at the same time, I don’t want to see if my cat doesn’t like to be in water.
Everyone go home. Existence is done.
Ah yes, Severus Snape. A.K.A. the Bravest Man I’ve ever Met. He was after all the only person who died in the war. Or who died defying you-know-who. Most importantly, he was the only one who died protecting me. Can you think of anyone better.
BECAUSE I CAN LITERALLY
NOT ONE PERSON
NO WITCH OR WIZARD
WHO DIED FIGHTING
OR WHO DIED DEFYING THE DARK LORD
OR WHO WAS BETTER THAN SEVERUS SNAPE
NO ONE WHO WAS KINDER TO THEIR STUDENTS
NO ONE WHO ALSO HAD A TERRIBLE CHILDHOOD
NO ONE WHO WAS ALSO ‘IN LOVE’
NO ONE WHO WASN’T RACIST AND ONLY FOUGHT FOR THE ORDER BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACKMAILED
LITERALLY NO ONE!!!
