Slutshaming women is not ok
Slutshaming Alexander Hamilton is totally ok
he cheated. on his wife.
he’s also been dead for several hundred years this is the funniest post ive ever read in my life
fave things about this post:
the idea that thousands of people are calling alexander hamilton a slut
calling any founding father a slut
the idea that people are SHAMING Alexander Hamilton for being Such A Slut he is being SHAMED for being such a naughty little tart, SPREADING HIS LEGS FOR EVERYONE IN CONGRESS
that this was probably prompted by people expression dissaproval for Alexander Hamilton cheating on his wife - that the OP thinks “slut shaming” and “Isnt it gross that he cheated on his wife” are the same thing
Alexander Hamilton has been dead for 210
210 slutty, slutty years
the way that this is presented in such a CHECKMATE SJWS way when they’re talking about a founding father who cheated on his wife and has been DEAD FOR 210 YEARS
the fact that the words “Slutshaming” and “Alexander Hamilton” have been used in the same sentence
i mean just apply what we’d traditionally think of as “slut shaming” to Alexander Hamilton.
His frock coat is too tight, his breaches are so short, have you SEEN how often he powders his wig??? I heard he gave Thomas Jefferson a handy behind the stables AND that he got fingered by John Hancock
yo nothing will EVER be as batshit in star wars as whatever the fuck was up with darth maul. no questions no answers. so he’s split in half & falls down into a never-ending portal. ok, cool. following so far. & tHEN. not only does he miraculously SURVIVE THAT (???)––meanwhile, SOME sith have to have metal organs stuffed into their shellacked shells of life support slash body armor but maul gets straight up shishkebabed through all the important places in COMPLETE SEPARATE HALVES, & can just roll with it. ok. huh.––but THEN. he gets miraculously zoomed away from naboo like st. john’s body flying through the winds to santiago de compostela all the way to a garbage dump ten feet underground on an entirely DIFFERENT PLANET, which. ok. inchresting. but NOT ONLY THAT, but maul SOMEHOW accumulates eight extra legs (8!!!! 4+4=8!!!! approximately six (6!!!!) more legs than he requires!!!!) to become some weird landfill mechanical spider amalgam with surprisingly great healthcare despite, y'know, the garbage dump situation. & AFTER TEN LONG YEARS OF LIVING IN A LITERAL HOLE, his long-lost brother (one of TWO long-lost brothers, may i point out)somehow FINDS him on this rando planet that is entirely garbage dump, in a hole, with eight legs, scrawling KENOBI!!!! on the wall in honest to god blood. ok so. one might think: well, where could we possibly go from here? perhaps a rehabilitation center? maury, to deal with the long-lost brother situation? a petting zoo? no. instead, darth maul spends a three-day weekend with a witch who does some bright green toxic joker sludge magic & is then raring to go and build a criminal empire with no after effects re: the vivisection, other then the whole frothing at the mouth KENOBI!!!!!! thing. did i fever dream this? maybe. possibly. what the absolute fuck

obi-wan: i can do this. i can honor qui-gon’s legacy. i got this
anakin skywalker: [strongest documented connection to the force, fries someone alive with the force at the tender age of twelve, afflicted with highly accurate prophetic visions of the future, brings the anthropomorphic incarnations of the force to their godly knees by embracing cosmic power, preyed on by a sith lord from the tender age of nine onwards and perpetually bound to the swinging pendulum of cosmic destiny, makes inscrutable statements such as I BURN LIKE A SUN ON THE INSIDE to describe emotions, risks his life on the regular just to illegally race weird vessels, also the central figure in at least three cults, dumb bitch disease]
obi-wan, sweating: i’ve maybe got this
obi-wan has Just Some Guy disease, in that he’s literally just a dude and everything galaxy-changing that happens near him happens because he’s adjacent to god’s stupidest skywalker. imagine you were a regular man and you were suddenly saddled with an unmanageable creature of cosmic power that’s also a human person with human needs, couldn’t it have been so much worse than your little creature killing you and everyone you know and also most other people? it could have been so much worse. obi-wan listens to space podcasts and folds his socks and has opinions on space jazz, and he has to raise a part-manifestation of arcane life power that’s gifted in nine directions and still somehow exclusively capable of making the worst possible choice. obi-wan has a minivan and his sonbrotherboy sleeps in the back of it receiving prophecies from the semi-sentient ever-present all-powerful ether. i think, all things considered, a guy who probably irons his boxers raising tween human-shaped cthulu could have gone a lot worse. maybe we got off a little easy, all things considered. only a lot of people died.
ok but……then they went and made this post so what’s the difference really you’re still bragging about it 🤔
The difference is Sadé isn’t plastering the homeless folks’ faces everywhere and using their identity to uplift their social standing. The issue presented is the camera.
Some questions to ask yourself next time you’re confused while reading: What is the purpose of this post? What is the problem being highlighted? Who does it hurt? How does it hurt? What is this person saying and who are they likely saying it to?
Didn’t know a tweet calling out performative “altruism” is enough to call a random stranger a bitch but y’all aren’t good people on here.
Someone (not me) needs to write a fic detailing Steve’s attempts to set up Sam and Bucky but they’re just too dumb to pick up on it
“meanwhile they fall in love on missions instead. so every attempt at a double/blind date or super accidental stranding somewhere never pans out, but N missions down the line he sees Sam get injured and Bucky loses his entire mind about it and then Bucky won’t let anyone else near Sam NO Bucky has to be the one to patch him up FUCK OFF STEVE and Steve realizes he had it all wrong.” @staypuftmarshmallowqueen HOW COULD YOU LEAVE THIS IN THE REPLIES
someone else has to write it!!
Steve: I think he’s into you.
Sam: Pffft right okay. That’s a good one.
Bucky: Why are you bothering him? He needs rest. Get out.
Sam: What are you, my mom?
Bucky: I’m the guy trying to keep you alive! One of us is a super soldier and one of us isn’t.
Sam: And one of us is covered in Vibranium and one of us isn’t.
Bucky: That’s to prevent the worst, it doesn’t make you invulnerable.
Steve: Buck, I’m sure he’s–
Bucky: <points> OUT.
Steve: <raises his hands, leaves>
Sam: Why are you being like this.
Bucky: Like what.
Sam: You’re all freaked out, it’s just a concussion and a few breaks.
Bucky: A few–a few breaks? Would you LISTEN TO YOURSELF– <door shuts>
Steve: I’m an idiot. I’m so stupid. Of course. Why am I sending them on dates, they just need to go on missions together. That’s like a date, right? I mean, for them. Jesus, I can’t believe I went to all that trouble…all those reservations…
Sam: <through the door> So what, are you going to just sleep in here? Refuse to let anyone except a qualified medical professional near me?
Steve, quietly walking away: <whistles to self> <gets out phone to text Rhodey>
Question: purge of 2002? of 2012? what ARE those?
Oh, how quickly the past is forgotten.
They are part of the reason A03 is a thing now. Not the whole reason, but part of it.
The Great Purges of 2002 and 2012 are when ff.net got a wild hair up their ass about THINK OF THE CHILDREN and nuked any fic posted on there that was explicit. Thousands upon thousands of nc-17 smutfics were lost.
It’s what led to the creation of alternate hosting sites for smutty fic…AdultFanfiction was the one I went to…but thousands of fics would never be recovered.
idk how you watch catws and not pick up on the fact that sam is absolutely a mirror of steve… they even straight up say it in the film.
“I do what he does, just slower”
okay we gonna do this because Sam is a reckless motherfucker that absolutely mirrors Steve’s characterization and i’m goddamn tired of people grossly misinterpreting his character b/c it fits in better with their two dimensional therapy dog version of him
Sam doesn’t like taking orders, he’s not pliant or obedient. He does what he believes is right and damn the rules (sound familiar??). Theres a reason they fucking hit it off so well right from the start.
Following that we have Steve turning up on his doorstep looking like a building got dropped on him. And what does Sam do?
Yeah sure… I’ll let a couple of avengers who just told me everybody is out to kill them into my house. Sounds like a good time. It’s also a bit telling that Sam knows exactly where his suit is. Ten bucks says he’s actually tried to steal it before but couldn’t quite manage it on his own.
And then we start getting into really no holds bar Sam:
Y'all like to forget Sam brought a two inch knife to a gun fight and won. Not to mention, he clearly walks around with a knife on him at all times… not just in his car, but on his person.
Sam gives no fucks and will take you out. Winter soldier? Bitch try it
Some hydra fool who won’t stop talking Nazi nonsense?
Fuck this guy. he’ll take him on in nothing but a fucking t-shirt.
Oh and remember that building that Steve jumped out of? Might as well top that by jumping out of the same one, just about 20 stories up.
Cool, cool, cool.
Going feet first towards the rotor blades of a helicopter, knowing if you miss your legs are mulch?
Steve wants to track down an international maybe still brainwashed assassin?
When do we start?
And of course, this wouldn’t be complete without the penultimate Steve/Sam comparison.
So to everyone who trashes him, or does him a disservice by making him out to be nothing more than a therapist who can fix Bucky and Steve I have one thing to say. In the immortal words of the legend Samuel Thomas Wilson himself, “Man, shut the hell up.”
IN THIS HOUSE, WE APPRECIATE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE REAL SAM WILSON
theres a hole in the wall in my brothers’ room because they were fighting (for fun not anger) in there once and one of them knocked the other into the wall so hard his head made that hole, so they put two small skeletons in there for decoration
they tapped up the “décor” sign up because according to them the skeleton is named
and the one underneath him is his husband. also worth noting that they found 2 dollars in there the other day
we can’t have fun and decadent conversations about how yoda is essentially living the same reality obi-wan was after ROTS all the way through the clone wars if none of you will let the jedi be properly fucked up motherfuckers. we can’t! we just can’t! i can’t regale you with thoughts about how sad the space frog must be if you can’t make it really fun and exciting by throwing in the exhilarating spice of dooku leaving the order because he hates yoda, his master, specifically, and it can’t possibly have all the dimension it must if yoda was just perfect and dooku just has slimy bitch disease. fuck you, i want to have to dig through dooku’s motivations and peel off the layers of unhinged evil and sidious-related manipulations and misunderstandings until you hit the glorious parts where dooku maybe had a fucking point, before catastrophically losing his way and becoming the worst.
i want to sift through yoda’s undoubtedly intense problems with connection relating to the fact that he is 900 years old and he has outlived all that he loves and could barely stand it when he began to care for dooku and started pushing his ferocious little padawan away, a pattern dooku would pass down to qui-gon, that qui-gon would pass down to obi-wan, that obi-wan would pass down to anakin, who would pass it down to ahsoka. i want to peel back the layers of damage until the raw truth lays bare, the raw truth being that if you’re in pain you will teach others how to be in pain if you don’t interrupt it, and that cycle will continue until it destroys itself. there’s story potential here and you motherfuckers would deprive me the joy of it because it’s “"sweeter”“ if yoda’s just one happy little space frog, well i’ll replace your handsoap in your dispensers with lotion, i don’t care. sorry it’s just way more fun if everyone had sympathetic beginnings to their ~damage~ and some Notable Motherfuckers in the family took it to irrational levels of atrocity. i’m going to imagine locking this entire lineage in a room with ghost qui-gon for five days so they can scream it the fuck out, because you know how real people handle intergenerational trauma? we lock ourselves in a house together and stay at each other’s throats the whole time and call it thanksgiving. now THAT’S what i call family
you know i often think ‘wow this person is having That Opinion about Star Wars because of Stuff With Their Parents’ so aces for just slamming that down there in the middle of the table
you’re welcome, you know me, i’m very upfront that have i desires i want to see carried out. one of those desires is jedi lineage group holiday, that ends like a real family holiday, with people screaming at each other because unfortunately most everyone here is a product of some pretty shitty circumstances.
Should I ask how cursed and dumb koalas are? Because I've heard they're pretty self destructive and as I've said before, dumb?)
not dumb at all, actually!
all those “koalas are evolutionary dead ends and their bodies are riddled with toxins” posts are just hate clickbait- koalas are normal animals on the lower end of the smarts scale but no less intelligent than say, a squirrel.
YOU HEARD WHAT I SAID BASTARD JEREMY, I SAW YOU ALMOST GET RUN OVER BY THAT MOPED LAST WEEK WHEN YOU WENT AFTER HALF A CHICKEN SANDWICH IN THE GUTTER
in fact, koalas are just one of MANY mammals that have specialized into eating a noxious/dangerous plant that other animals in their ecosystem avoid, which is a totally valid strategy and works really well as long as your food source doesn’t go extinct!
another notable mammal that specced into this niche is:
and yet, I have yet to see any shouty wildlife articles calling giraffes an “evolutionary dead end”…
(though to be fair, a giraffe is more likely than a koala to render you into a monkey pancake for the insult)
and finally, koalas aren’t actually poisonous! they’re part of their ecosystem like any other animal, and regularly get chowed down on by multiple different predators, including humans.
“shit bro, maybe you guys should just try these leafs instead. love these leafs.”
in this way, koalas are actually a VERY IMPORTANT PART of their ecosystem, because their participation in the australian food web means that nutrients that otherwise would remain locked in eucalyptus trees and inaccessible to most other animals get passed up the chain when a koala eats the eucalyptus leaves and eventually is eaten itself in turn!
The fact that both of zukos abusers used lightning against zuko and instead of learning to use lightning himself like he could have he learned how to redirect the lightning and let it pass through him and then straight clean out of him… Do you ever think about how that is literally physically representing how instead of absorbing his father and sisters abuse he lets it pass through him and instead of soaking it in and letting it destroy him he redirects it away from himself… I just want some peace in my life
when iroh said that you have to let the energy flow through you. that you can’t let it hit your heart
So this is just a PSA, y'all should never sign a contract until you read it. I’m talking in rl right now. I just got through reading my employee handbook/service contract and my bosses slipped in a lot of bullshit like telling me I can’t complain about my job on social media, demanding I work off the clock in the name of good service, expects me to show up on time during inclimate weather, and considered disability or religious accommodation a direct threat to the company.
These are all things I took issue with and brought to my employer for further discussion before signing the contract. Most of my coworkers signed without reading, treating it like an internet terms of service contract.
Tl;dr real life is serious shit, lawyers write contracts to protect your employer FROM YOU, read contracts before you sign them - fucking ARGUE about contracts before you sign them
Also important to note, and something my bf has repeated to me many times: a contract is a negotiation until it is signed, and YOU ARE ALLOWED TO AMEND IT. Tech companies often put some bs in there about “we own everything you make while you work for us” which broadly applied also means anything done on your own time. He always ALWAYS does write-in amendments with initial and date to state that they only own things done FOR the company, on company time, because there have been companies that enforced that bullshit when somebody had a personal side project the company decided they wanted to steal. There’s only one company that threw a fit at his attempts to amend it and he considered that a huge red flag and refused to sign, turned down the job.
Never. EVER. Sign shit without reading it. Also: if your prospective employer won’t let you take the thing home to read before you sign it and says you need to sign it then and there THAT IS A RED FLAG. The job I had that turned out to be abusive as shit was like that. Every other job I’ve been able to bring the contract home to my parents to have a more experienced set of eyes on it. It’s also common practice in some fields to have one’s attorney look over it before signing. So never let them tell you that you can’t look over it with someone else. That’s a fat load of shit. For “lower level” jobs they may not accept amendments to the contract but if they won’t even give you the proper time to read it over, they’re trying to pull some bullshit on you and you’re going to regret it if you sign. Even if there’s nothing bad in what you signed it’s an example of how they are going to treat you while you’re there. Take it to heart and run like fucking hell.
Please also tell your coworkers. Inform others. Tell everyone. Please, for the lovee of everything TELL PEOPLE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO DO THESE THINGS.
Companies BANK on the fact you’re not going to read it. Then they slip in shit like ‘you can’t talk about your wages’ because they want you to keep quiet, so thy can pay that guy six bucks, and pay the guy over there fifteen and pay you eight. They want you to accept it all blindly. PLEASE DON’T STAY BLIND.
Yes, I’ve lost out on jobs because I wanted to read it and they didn’t want me to. Or they wanted m to resign and I said no to to the things they added that I pointed out were unfair and borderline illegal.
Read shit. Tell everyone else to read shit. BE INFORMED.
Absolutely 100% good advice ☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼
Never ever ever sign shit without reading and re-reading it! Take it home, show it to someone more experienced, if you can, show it to a lawyer. A contract is supposed to work for both sides. A company in Toronto tried to make me sign a contract with clause that in event of me leaving the job I will not work in a similar position anywhere in Ontario. Yeah, right, not enforceable in court, dudes, you can’t prevent me from making a living. Read the shit and don’t let them intimidate you.
Hi. I‘m a lawyer. Ask for at least 24 hours before you sign a work contract. You do not have to sign within 30 seconds of the contract hitting the desk. It is absolutely standard procedure. It gives you time to show it to a lawyer or go to a public counselor and have them look it over. In-room signing is another way companies blindside and intimidate you. Don’t be rushed. This is an absolutely normal thing to do. People who try to harangue you or hurry you along are sketchy.
THIS GOES FOR ANY SORT OF PUBLISHING CONTRACT AS WELL,
What with the whole “reopening the economy ‘after’ the pandemic” vibe going on, now, and employers aggressively trying to recruit new staff, there’s a lot of pressure to take whatever job you’re offered (especially in states with Republican governors & legislatures).
So all this is extra important to keep in mind, right now.
the fundamental difference between instagram and tumblr
straight comic fanboys with Fight Club Syndrome™️: they RUINED venom 🤬 venom is supposed to be DARK and BROODING and INTIMIDATING like all male antiheroes
actual venom comics:
Venom: you are the dancing queeeen… young and sssweeeet…
Eddie: babe I love you but it’s 3am, PLEASE shut the fuck up
Some whiny hetero fanboy: They RUINED Venom by making them silly and queer coded!
My good dude
First of all this was a space alien from a planet where a bunch of superheroes were abducted to by a dude with bad facial hair so they could have a hell in a cell/mortal kombat match against each other for vague if not wholly incoherent reasons and Spider-Man just found a weird black egg which turned out to be a sentient costume and he went “Oh huh cool!” and kept it and then it bonded with a depressed disgraced journalist after Peter got rid of it and it spent decades being a brain eating ridiculous looking goo monster with Liefeld anatomy that stopped eating people when it realised it could deal with this addiction by eating chocolate instead
Second of all the symbiote’s entire reason for hating Peter was it “Rejecting” it and it then proceeded to “Bond” with Eddie Brock who thought of it as being a part of himself and at one point he literally full on admited that he was having sex with it and part of the reason Eddie Brock hated Spider-Man was because he was jealous of the fact he suspected that the symbiote wanted to be with Peter more than it did with him and like
Venom as a character
Has been “Silly”
And queer-coded as fuck
For DECADES now if not right from the very earliest stories they appeared
And the movies recognising this and making the most of it is what makes them GOOD
It’s the comics that try and treat Venom as something serious and gritty that are ludicrous
Not to mention that it’s been confirmed that not only does Venom top Eddie, but whenever Eddie gets a hard on while “suited up” Venom rubs him off right then and there.
I’m BEGGING you for source beacsue I need to see this
