Black Panthers (Agnès Varda, 1968)
good morning if you call that stupid omegaverse au “a/b/o” or, worse, “abo” my abo-riginal australian ass is gonna beat the shit out of you. its a racial slur and the term omegaverse exists for a fucking reason. use that or shut the fuck up.
Just bringing this back cause it needs to be reminded again 😧 cant even search up a character’s name without “Abo” popping up,like bitch i will curb stomp you.
Use Omegaverse,its there and ya know not a white supremacist slur.

Selina Kyle: A kiss under the mistletoe. You know, mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it.
Bruce Wayne: But a kiss can be even deadlier… if you mean it.
[silence as they realize each other’s identities]
Selina Kyle: Oh, my God. Does this mean we have to start fighting?
Bruce Wayne: Let’s go outside

no because that puts Gatsby’s whole quest for wealth and the ‘perfect’ wife, his anger at not receiving an inheritance from his mentor, the whole white supremacy rant which Tom Buchanan goes off on, not to mention Daisy’s hesitance to marrying Gatsby and how no one actually mourns him when he gets murdered, and the Buchanans can just walk away without consequences… IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE
If you want to look more into this theory, it’s largely attributed to Dr. Carlyle V. Thompson, a professor of African American and American literature at Medgar Evers College. Looking him up should help point you in the direction of any papers or articles that cropped up around it.
From what I’ve learned, the idea doesn’t run contrary to the original text. It offers an interesting perspective on the themes of race that pervade it. There’s a neat Reddit thread in r/fantheories [here] that offers some evidence in the form of historical context and quotes from the text.
so you’re telling me black widow is about nat having two families, but she was the one who died on vormir because she didn’t have a family?
Ah but you see she had no children which means that her life is worth far less!
I mean, it was her fault she was neutered like a fucking animal when she was a kid which took away any choice she might’ve had.
She probably lost her family in the snap as well but she didn’t take a serial killer gap year, right Clint????
But since Clint had babies she had to go. What was she going to do? Have a whole tv show that could’ve been based on Phil Noto’s run on the Black Widow comic? Or form a friendship with Clint’s wife so we can learn more about her character? Train Kate Bishop to be the next Hawkeye???
No!! Don’t leave this in the tags! This is fix-it fic material right here!
i’m like REALLY tired of begging for help, but none of my donation posts really do all that well, and i’m getting super desperate! i’m asking again to get some money for me and my family to survive off of. hopefully it won’t be so difficult soon, but the way it’s looking with the delta variant idk if my dad is going to be able to get many contracting jobs.
also! our lease isn’t being renewed so we have until october to find a place to stay in this super expensive ass state, ALSO idk how we’re going to pay rent, but that’s like, later in the month problems. anyways anyways, anything anyone gives will be a great help, but we do need like ? $400 to get us at least a quarter of a way through August.
in case you forgot
- Palestine is still under illegal occupation
- isr*el is still practicing apartheid in illegally occupied Palestine
- Palestinian towns and villages (like Sheikh Jarrah) are still under threat of demolition
- Indigenous Palestinians are still being forced by the oppressive state to demolish their own homes (eg in Silwan) - in fact, the zionist state plans to build a park here
- Innocent indigenous Palestinian children are still being tried in military courts and held in prisons where they are abused and traumatised
Hey Merry! What was your fave part of Rutherford Falls? I loved Terry’s story, especially his little flashback episode and Reagan was so good I loved her! I especially loved that scene where Terry absolutely decimated that white lawyer that was so epic
i literally loved everything about it i want to personally deliver a metric tonne of emmys to every single person involved, starting with michael greyeyes for his BADASS, OUTSTANDING work as terry. everytime he walked on screen i felt spoiled, like how amazing i get to watch this performance, this story - what a gift! the moment when he tipped out the bowl of candies?? instantly legendary. same with the moment when he went off the record with the reporter, fucking KING SHIT!
but omg there’s just so much!! i was blubbering like a baby when the elder came into reagan’s cultural center and thanked her for her work. i’ve had similar experiences as an Indigenous teacher where elders have commended me, it’s such a privlege and i was crying for her. i loved reagan’s speech at the end, about Natives not being a monolith, about not knowing, about doing your best to do your best for your people.
i loved terry making reagan earn the trust of the rez back, of doing the work because there is no shortcuts to being part of community. that’s so real.
i loved the nuance and compassion in every inch of this show. that no one was coded as good/evil but just products of their families and histories - even Nathan and the mayor.
speaking of which, i loved how Nathan and mayor deidre’s relationship emphasised how, as non-indiginous people, they’re complicit in the systemic colonialism that harms Natives, despite. i’ve never seen that level of nuance in a show dealing with race- ever.
god, i also loved seeing a fat Indigenous woman be the whole main character and how she looks being completely unimportant. i loved seeing reagan be a love interest, be a protagonist, be complex - never seen a character like her ever. i wanted to cry. i also loved the way her community has the receipts every time she tried to pull the elitist “you don’t like me cos i moved to the city” card.
i loved that when reagan and terry went to the conference, we saw Natives of all shades and shapes!!
GOD I LOVE HOW FUNNY THIS SHOW IS!! every line out of bobbie’s (actually canon non-binary gaysian legend btw) mouth was pure GOLD!
i could go on and on and on because i have not stopped telling anyone in my life who will listen to watch it since i finished three days ago. may possibly be one of the best shows of all fucking time!
kinda of a random question, but have you seen ever after? the cinderella retelling adaptation with Drew Barrymore?
yes! it was one of the few vhs tapes my nan and pop owned so i saw it lots as a kid, it’s lovely. i still love drew with all my heart 😊
oh, baby im so sorry...
thank u 💕
i love man of steel (2013) michael shannon put his whole pussy into playing general zod and the dccu hasn’t had a compelling villain since
White people have always slipped in and out of the experiences of people of color and been praised extravagantly for it.
Idk how I feel about visible poc telling white presenting poc (using that cause whitepassing is a term for Black ppl only I’ve learned) to not say they’re brown or poc & just id as their ethnic/cultural identity. Like if that’s more correct and respectful I’ll do it I’d just never seen that before Twitter. I just wanna be a good ally to my community and other poc (it’s ok if you don’t wanna answer this btw)
okay, a couple of things and i mean no disrespect or animosity -
i am answering this as a general psa to the numerous anons sending me things like this since whitepassingpocs has gone on hiatus. i am not ready to come back, please stop sending me things like this and feel free to scroll through @whitepassingpocs as I guarantee you will find previously answered asks that will help. x
love how a major symptom of my mental illness is severe anxiety and ocd about going outside/leaving the house, which i have not managed to do in over a week due to period hormones eccaserbating those feelings and my family are really out here cracking jokes about me being a hermitt, getting vitamin d deficiency and answering any of my questions like “if u went outside you’d know” 💀 i can’t emphasis enough, if u know someone with any degree of agoraphobia, joking about it like this at their expense is deeply unhelpful. it’s really not that hard to communicate with us about what we’re comfortable with and work from there.
a chibnall!who-free world is on its way, lads. nature is healing 😌
