Remember like five weeks ago when I got yelled at on here for saying Biden and Trump had exactly the same covid response plan?
Shut the FUCK UP.
I get that being a cynical pessemistic “both sides are the same” edgelord makes you popular on tumblr but you are deliberately ignoring REALITY and that shit is harmful.
Biden has announced he will sign a national mask mandate on his first day in office. Trump spent 12 months being at absolute best silent on the issue of masking - he was cornered a few times into making off-hand, isolated remarks that people should wear masks, but he was more often than not explicitly anti-mask. He and his entire team refused to wear them. Masking matters and seeing people in positions of power masking matters. Do not fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan involves massively increasing testing in speed, accuracy, and availability. Trump spent months complaining about the US testing too much and actively asked his administration to test less people because the numbers made him look bad. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID team is fully stacked with qualified, serious, brilliant scientists and phsyicians. He will rely on them when making policy decisions. Trump put his failed real estate tycoon son in law Jared Kushner and fired anyone who disagreed with his position of ignoring the pandemic. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan to get schools back open (by the end of his first 100 days, where it is able to be done safely) specifically includes providing schools with the funding they need to purchase the PPE that they need to operate safely as well as implementing other community protocols that will reduce overall spread and transmission (increased testing, better contact tracing, etc). Schools will not open at the expense of student safety - they will only re-open if it is possible to do so safely. Trump threatened to cut the funding of any schools that didn’t open fully this fall and explicitly fought back against the CDC guidelines, stating they were too strict and too onerus. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
Biden’s COVID plan emphasizes free, accessible vaccines for every American and he is focused now on developing the infastructure to roll out this massive public health initiative so that everyone who wants and needs a vaccine can get one. Trump’s administration turned down vaccine manufactuerer Pfizer earler this year when the company promoted the administration to order significantly more vaccines than it had - the administration refused, and now the delivery of a huge number of vaccines to the US is delayed. Don’t fucking say that Biden’s COVID response plan is the same as Trump’s. It’s not.
We are transitioning from a narccisistic, moronic lazy piece of shit president who absolutely refused to help the country through the pandemic at best and who at worst caused hundreds of thousands of more Americans to die than needed to - to a serious adult who understands the severity of the situation and who is developing a robust, science-based, aggressive plan to help the country. To say these two plans are the same is absolue fucking ludicrous.
Is Biden’s plan perfect? Of course not! Is it ~the exact same~ as Trump’s? NO. IT’S NOTHING LIKE TRUMP’S. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP SPREADING MALICIOUS MISINFORMATION.
Oh my God right at “wear a mask” Biden and Trump are literally on opposite ends of the spectrum what the fuck is wrong with you people
Hey anyone know where I can get some oranges? They are the last fruit I need!
bruh my little brother got a scratch and he was all crying and i was like “oh do you want one of the bandaids i use for my shots? they have cute emojis on them” and through his tears he goes “that’s cringe” IM DEAD
“Ask the little brat if he’d rather have rubbing alcohol poured on it and sealed up with superglue instead.”
hey you fucking weirdo that’s my real life little brother .
i spent hours looking for this post because it hit me over the head repeatedly at 12:00 in the morning
God I fucking hate Olaf the snowman so fucking much holy shit. Holy shit, every frame he’s in, every scene, every gif, every jpeg, he’s got this painfully vacant, stupid as shit, fuckass look on his stupid lumpy face. Absolutely no part of his ugly as sin piece of shit character design is endearing. His stupid fucking legs? Who the hell makes a snowman with legs. His dumb flaily fucking twig arms? His shitty, lumpy bastard head? The three thousand percent unnecessary dumbass shitass fucking SNOW BUCK TOOTH that no snowman has EVER FUCKING HAD IN tHE HISTORY OF GOD’S GREEN FUCKING EARTH? God, I hate him. I hate him so much. So FUCKING much. Every time I see a stuffed toy Olaf or an Olaf gif or a shitty goddamn commercial, it ignites my primal rage response and I’m overcome by the need to punt this shitty little homunculus into the fucking sun. “Bhurr blur, I’m Olaf the fuckshit snow fucker, I like warm hugs”. Fuck you. Fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you. You look like Tow Mater summoned a patronus. Your dumb fucking twig hair makes your whole shitty head look like a hairy skin tag. I hate your dumb fucking lumpy carrot nose and your stupid, empty googly eyes and your over-the-top goofy ass upbeat asshole personality. Any scene he’s sad it invokes all the wrath and fury of a spoiled child having a meltdown over a chocolate bar in a w*lmart checkout line. And I know its irrational. That’s the worst part. I know he’s just a shitty fucking side character in a stupid fucking children’s movie, I know it doesn’t matter, I know I shouldn’t care. But that’s part of the problem. The part where no matter the might and fury of my hatred, the locus of my homicidal intent is alltogether inconsequential. I find myself laying awake in the dark in the early hours of the morning consumed by the spirit of Wrath itself, all the force and might of a flaming hurricane directed at a bottle of piss in a ditch by the highway. The absurdity of it all burns me to my core. What better things could this energy be directed towards? And yet my disdain for this stupid, useless, insubstantial failure of endearing character design utterly eclipses the intrigue of all other pursuits. I hate him. I hate him on a level of my mind reserved for the worst of the world’s array of sinners, and I can’t even begin to justify it. Shitstick the snow dick is, for all intents and purposes, the animated corpse of all of humanity’s saccharine pretenses- every condescending, passive-aggressive statement of meaningless upper middle class suburban drama distilled into a single, hateable form. The fucking. Fuck. I have no words. There is no cuss or epithet in any language that can encapsulate the height of the emotions I am experiencing. God, I hate him so much. I hate him so, so fucking much. I want to light his ugly little dumpster body on fire. I want to graphically beat him to death with his own stupid fucking nose. I want to punch him to death. You know that weird feeling you get, when you see a picture of something so cute you find yourself overcome with the bizarre, inexplicable urge to squeeze it? It’s EXACTLY like that, except instead of cuteness it’s disgust. The wordless knowledge that his existence as a fictional work is evidence of all the failures of mankind. I find myself possessed by the will of a Holy Angel gone rogue with the belief that God has made a mistake, and I alone must correct it. This is the trial by which Samael himself fell from grace. This wild, meaningless rage. A thousand blades of shining steel cast with inhuman force in the direction of a plastic grocery bag floating on a breeze. What horrors must I have committed in a past life to be plagued by this torment now? I must Unmake this fictional snowman
holy shit you’re not wrong
I’d feel better about this whole rant if Olaf weren’t queer-coded. It might be largely the voice acting – the lisp, the inflection especially – but he’s got massive “harmless gay sidekick” vibes. And if you’re actively critiquing that? Sure, great, go all out. Hate whom you will. Say whatever you want about how “gay” is equated with “harmless silly sidekick used for comic relief, with no serious bearing on the plot, literally inhuman and treated by Serious Human Characters as… well,a sidekick, peripheral to your life and safe to ignore.
But if you’re not engaging critically with that aspect of his character and are just overwhelmed with hatred whenever you see or hear or think about the queer-coded character and his mannerisms make you feel violent, that is a little bit. Uncomfortable. At best.
what on God’s green earth are you talking about
See sometimes I wonder why I’m still on this website, and then posts like this come along. Amazing.
me reading this post like
oh my god holy fuckign shit okay i had to hunt this post down to say that i had a brief dream about this post and basically someone said “2020 would’ve been better if olaf didn’t exist” and someone reblogged with “olaf (derogatory)” i am losing my MIND
donkey saying “parfaits may be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet” implies
- the existence of a concept of a hell and damnation in the shrek universe;
- the recognition that the earth is one of several spherical bodies which orbit the sun
parfait is a french word which implies another troubling feature of the shrek universe: france
for the first like 14 years of my life i thought that the story of saint valentine and valentines day were a celebration of a massive gay polyamorous marriage and let me tell you, i was sorely disappointed when i learned i had massively misunderstood that story
i was told the basic story of “the king had made it illegal for young men to get married so that they could be drafted off to go to war (as married men with families were not, apparently)” and that “saint valentine thought this was cruel, and married the young men in secret”
what this was supposed to communicate to me was “saint valentine would marry young men to their girlfriends in secret as a priest at his own risk and thats why we celebrate valentines day”
what i got out of it was “saint valentine married a shitton of dudes so he could protect his army of husbands from having to go to war and it was beautiful and love can halt war in its tracks and thats why we celebrate valentines day”
and thats why the assumption that a child would automatically get a hetero interpretation of the story and the innate unclarity of the english language made me think that valentines day was about mass gay poly marriage until i was like fourteen and recited the story to a friend who stared at me like id grown three extra heads
i like my version better im not gonna lie
How to fake sleep: a guide for actors and people with strict parents
1.) breathe slowly. Very slowly and deeply
2.) Squeeze your eyes tighter than you’d think, but don’t use your eyebrows too much
3.) Move your eyes under your eyelids
4.) If you need to wake up, open your eyes with a TINY inhale, then lift your head and body and get going.
5.) Phone away from your hands. Preferably under the blanket
6.) Just in case a parent tries to rip off your blanket, wrap the side closest to the edge of the bed around your arm, or tuck it underneath your arm.
People on my other social media appreciated this so I thought I’d share.
Also make a soft groaning noise as you “wake up” if they wake you up suddenly I’ve found that to help
If people make noises around you you can turn over a bit or inhale differently.
It’s here !! The guide for two-legged people who don’t know how to draw wheelchairs !!!
7 pages of infodump !
Disclaimer : I don’t know everything, I have one (1) experience of wheelchair user who used both bad and good chairs, and I share what I learned.
Image description :
1) Calvin in his wheelchair saying “yo” under a huge title “how to draw manual wheelchairs properly by Calvin Arium, a wheelchair user comic artist”.
2) A character says “my character self propels in a chair that was outdated in 1970 lol”
Calvin says “so it looks like you two legged people don’t know the difference between an hospital chair and a chair made to be independant”
an arrow point the crapppy chair, saying “we never want to see this again”
a bubble says “the hospital chair is extremely unpractical, tough considering it’s cheaper than a good custom chair a lot of us have only this”
3) a character hurt himself trying to reach the wheels of the hospital chair. Several arrows point why the chair is unpractical : “high backrest restrain shoulders movement” “huge armrest restrains wheel access” “separated footrest : amovible, cheap, bulky” “x structure, foldable but heavy” “huge front casters for stability” “heavy wheels”
4) Several arrows point an active wheelchair (the KSL by Küshall) : “usually no armrest” “a low backrest allow more movement” “light, design, ferning expersive” “special cushion to avoind injuries” “knee angle is usually 90°” “one single piece of frame, sometimes entirely welded” “weight : from 4 to 10kg” “often rigid” “center of the wheel is the center of gravity” “higher quality wheels : less spikes”
5) A hand grab different parts of the wheel, pushing harder in the second half. Bubbles says “some have gloves, some don’t. The hand must grab the biggest area possible. Less movement = more energy. This is a common but not only way to push.Calvin is on his back wheels, rolling on grass and dirt
bubble says “popping a wheelie is when a wheelchair user rolls on their back wheels to roll on every complicated surface.
6) several drawings illustrate the folding frame, the ergonomic but rigid and expensive backrest, the separated footrest (only for folding frame), the handles, the folding handles, athe amovibles handles, or no handles, the cool fancy loopwheels, the pretty custom colors
7) More Features ! The fancy rigid-foldable frame, the anti tippers (sometimes used by beginners), the motorization (wheels, smart drive) when propelling yourself is difficult
Calvin says “and now vroom vroom motherfuckers”
My dad told me that he has a coworker who’s a trans woman. She was married to this girl before her transition and they remained together after it. Everyone at work respects her pronouns. My dad is in a chiefing position at his office and he told me that nobody jokes behind her back. She and her wife have two cute dogs together and I felt like I should share this story bc I want everyone to know that this positivity and respect exists and you deserve it. Don’t ever dare think that you don’t because you do.
Update: they have three dogs now
There is a non-binary person I work with who uses they/them pronouns. Their pronouns are in their email signature and the only time I’ve heard someone not use them was one person who had previously worked with them at a time they used different pronouns, and he immediately corrected himself mid-sentence, looked embarrassed, and proceeded. I’ve never heard him or anyone else not use their pronouns again, and my workplace runs the gamut from eighty-year-olds to twenty-year-olds. No one ever discusses their pronouns or anything about their identity behind their back unless it’s to choose a bar or restaurant to hang out (in non-pandemic times) and say “no, we can’t go there, that place doesn’t have a gender neutral restroom for them”. They have been married to a delightful person for ten years and (in non-pandemic times) she would often join for social activities. They have a toddler who is the cutest thing on this earth. They’re an absolutely brilliant engineer and I have learned a great deal from them as they’re much more experienced than I am, and I appreciate how patient they’ve been when I’ve made mistakes. Again, positivity and respect exists and you deserve it every bit as much as these people. Don’t ever forget it.

HOMEBOY IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO FUCKING AROUND
[ George Takei on twitter
I didn’t spend my childhood in barbed wire enclosed internment camps so I could listen to grown adults today cry oppression because they have to wear a mask at Costco. ]
Context: George Takei and his family were forced by the American Government to live in Japanese concentration camps during World War II. They were forced to leave their home, business, most of their belongings and had their freedoms strip away by the oppressive US government. They lived in converted horse stables before they were moved to another camp in swampy Arkansas then again to California. His mother was almost separated from them and sent to Japan. Even after release the Takei’s lived on the streets in skid row and endured racism from white america. (I really recommend reading his Graphic Memoir They Called Us Enemy. Not only that but George Takei is an out gay man. So when Uncle George comes to drag you for crying oppression he comes with fucking receipts.
when youve clearly divided the time for all the question in your paper
but question 1 starts taking a bit more
when you skip question 1 but then question 2 is tougher
When you see next questions
when you think that question 2 is wrong but no one in your hall has said anything yet
when you think
when you cant think
When you don’t know why everyone is asking for extra sheets while you haven’t even finished the first one
when there’s a difficult question from a chapter you barely studied cause u thought it wasn’t important
when you prepared for the informal letter but there arent any options for the letter
when you just turned in your physics paper then realize that u forgot to convert the values into SI unit
When you turn up for your paper and realise it’s physics, not chemistry today.
When you are trying very hard to remember the answer but your brain decides to recite the song lyrics instead
when you remember the mnemonic, but it doesnt make any sense
When it’s the last two minutes of the exam and the smartest person is still writing the exam but you finished an hour ago
When you are sleeping and have an unexplainable feeling of dread
when you think the exam went well but the teacher hands out the scores and the topper starts crying
do actors get boners while making sex scenes this is one of the things i’ve wondered my whole life
Idk if you actually care for the answer, but they have to put their dicks in little sleeves that attach to the leg so if they get a boner it just get held down.
that sounds like a garment that should be sold everywhere and considered polite if not mandatory to wear, like bras
Omg I can’t
As a guy I second this.
If I have to wear a titty sling because there might be an event where it becomes chilly and my nip noops become visible through my shirt, people who have a peenor should be expected to wear a peenor sling in case there is an event where a gentle breeze occurs and their peenor becomes erect.
I kind of feel like if we’re gonna do that we should go all-out and they should be IMPOSSIBLE to size, VERY expensive, flimsy, and made of uncomfortable, itchy materials.
And the little ones should have cute designs but the big ones only come in white,black, and tan
and there should be a company that sells them called Victor’s Secret, that has uncomfortably large, close-up photos of enormously-endowed male “angels” stuffed into their gorgeous little pouches spread all over every mall and TV channel, which changes societal expectations on penis size as a whole, so that men who don’t have incredibly large penises feel impossibly inadequate and feel compelled to make up for it by spending a fortune on overpriced penis pouches as a way of compensating.
Then Victor’s Secret should be sure not to actually carry any of these garments in the sizes that they advertise, so that only modestly-endowed men have the privilege of being seen in the shop, which is the type of place that simultaneously clamors for huge dicks, but refuses to cater to them in any way, leaving everyone involved vaguely uncomfortable and slightly ashamed.
This is legit one of the best posts I’ve ever found on tumblr.
They also must come with a terrible underwire that sometimes breaks or stabs them from time to time.
This is great.
There should also be a very old, kind of worn out one that gets worn on laundry day.
and the sizes need to have some random symbols/letters for no fuckin reason at all. 7 inch dick? cool your size is 4Z deal with it.
This is where Tumblr excels.
