white people please just purchase native artwork and jewelry from native people i keep seeing idiot white people be like “waaah i wish i could support native creators but its cultural appropriation” girl why would beaders sell you their earrings then. just dont get a medicine wheel or a thunderbird then like damn it is that easy
If Native folks are making it to sell to white people with the approval of their tribe, it’s not “appropriation”–its support and appreciation! So yes, buy that native-made dream catcher, but not the mass produced fakes made by white people. Like, you can go to a pow wow and buy native crafts there, too.
Disney plus is not even available in china i am begging you to stop blaming American homophobia on China
Nimona was going to get a film and they CANCELLED it? I never even heard they were making this. Apparently they laid off the team cos of coronavirus but man, what a loss. Nimona is great and I’m positive it would have made an awesome movie.
“Cos of coronavirus” nah fam they bought the studio making Nimona, which was MOSTLY DONE, and cancelled the project. Disney is a multibillion dollar corporation and could easily afford to continue funding the project to completion but willfully chose not to. They chose to kill it. Not because of China or Russia or COVID, but because they are at their roots still supremely bigoted, including anti-gay. Don’t let their rainbow-washing fool you. Disney is not your friend.
hey guys can you help me find that old portrait of a girl holding a little painting of a naked dude and cracking up about it?? I want to say it’s by Rembrandt but that’s probably not right
It’s “Smiling Girl, a Courtesan, Holding an Obscene Image” by Gerard van Honthorst!!
It’s the best painting that exists
idk this self-portrait Michael Sweerts did is a pretty high contender
that is a good and valid point. thank you
you’re cis? when did you choose that?
remember when guys genuinely got mad at girls for using the dog filter on snap and called them hoes
ik ur not talking with an anime icon
These are skdhusjauxusn
i was looking at it on mobile and was extremely confused because i was reading that he had an anime profile picture but i couldnt tell what anime it was that would have this guy in it because to me the profile picture looked a bit like this
we live in this weird culture where most people are so obsessed with airing every single trauma and mental health issue they have to the point that if you’re private about certain things people assume you have no issues or struggle lmao like ok

Hey, my names ash and I’m pregnant with an unwanted baby. I cannot afford abortion but if i decide to raise money and go get one my entire support system (friends, family) will disown me. I need help getting out of this hole and getting this baby out of me. I’ve estimated $4,000 dollars will help with my medical bills, moving, and general life expenses coming up. I’m sorry to reach out like this but i have no options anymore.

sometimes i think about how tolkien said golf exists in middle earth and then just never mentioned it again ever
Tolkien invented the absolute sickest and funniest backstory for the game of golf I’ve ever seen and then had none of his characters play or talk about golf in any of his works. the nerve
I won’t speak for all liberals, but I’d like to see a future where it isn’t a big deal for a woman in full modesty garb to sit next to a drag queen in NYC. It’s become a bit of a sensation, but her and I were just existing. The freedom to simply be yourself in a sea of people who aren’t like you is a freedom we all deserve.
The central irony is that this isn’t some hypothetical future–it’s just present day reality. This is a picture of two ordinary people going about their normal lives despite how haters want to politicize it lmao. So the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”
the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”
The narrative neurotypicals give about the mentally ill is so warped like how many times have you heard “If Van Gogh took medication, we wouldn’t have Starry Night,” and he literally painted that one on meds in a mental ward.
Okay, wow, this post really blew up more than I ever expected! I love the feedback, and to everyone who added “Even if his suffering is what gave us the paintings, they aren’t worth his suffering,” you are all correct.
If you would report an undocumented immigrant to ICE you would have reported me to the Nazis and I don’t fucking trust you
I live in a state where you “have to” report anyone you suspect of being undocumented (that wonderful hellhole of Arizona). Now in practice this law has fallen far short, thank goodness. But if you live in such a place and they start enforcing it, here is how you get around it:
Assume everyone who doesn’t speak English is visiting.
Never ask about their job, because if they tell you they work here then you know they’re not visiting. You see them a lot for several weeks or months? Hm. Someone in the family must be ill. That’s terribly tough. They always dress in old, ratty laborers’ clothes? I feel you, my dude, I can’t afford new clothes either, and my dad has the fashion sense of an aardvark, so sometimes it’s not even about “affording” them. They say they’ve been here for years? You must have misunderstood. Spanish isn’t your first language, after all. First and last name? It never came up, or you don’t recall–you meet a lot of people.
And then, if you’re asked: no, you haven’t seen anyone residing illegally in the United States. Just people visiting.
Very good very important addition
Essentially, this is the civil society version of a work-to-rule strike.
Don’t do more than is expressly asked of you, and do what you are asked with such an intense attention to protocol that not asking you at all becomes more effective than even bothering.
In this case:
“Have you seen an illegal immigrant?”
“Could you describe an illegal immigrant, officer?”
*officer describes a person who is in the country without appropriate paperwork, or who has crossed the border illegally*
“No, sir, I haven’t seen any illegal immigrant.”
And this is correct. You have NOT seen an illegal immigrant, because you have no way of knowing if Jose Fulano is here legally or not. And since you can’t see his paperwork (or lack thereof), and did not personally see him cross the border illegally, you are only answering precisely the question asked.
I’m not American, and I have like, three followers, but this is important.
So, I’m a lawyer, who deals with immigration though does not specialize in it. But here’s the thing(s):
1) Even someone who’s working could be here on a migrant (or other sort of) visa (hey, there are a few thousand per year, and *someone*’s got to get them, right?) or could be waiting for their case to resolve in immigration court, after having come to America to join a born or naturalized American family member.
2) Even people who are working improperly could have come into the country legally – and just overstayed their visa or be violating the conditions of their visa, and you have no idea what the niggly little regulations that govern that might be.
3) If a law enforcement officer asks you about a neighbor/friend/etc., take this moment to remind them that, unlike them, you cannot ask a random person off the street for their ID and be entitled to a response.
4) Even if someone has told you that they are undocumented, you still don’t know, do you? Humans lie all the time. How could you know for sure? You can’t, because they can’t prove that they have a lack of papers. Just because you haven’t seen papers doesn’t mean they don’t exist!
5) Don’t ever talk to cops in general. Why are you talking to a cop? Stop that, as soon as it is safe and feasible.

Did you do karate when you were a kid?
I actually did!! It was great, I learned moves no kid should know and despite the fact that my karate teacher told us it was only for self defense I didn’t listen. One day in school, we were playing baseball for PE, and there was this kid who had the same name as me, but was slightly more well-liked by the other kids, I guess that was enough of a reason to do what I did next. So when we were waiting in line to play, I asked him to hold his hand out, I then grabbed it and contorted it in such a way that you can quickly and painfully pin someone to the ground in under 10 seconds. Anyways he squirmed around on the ground for a bit. I don’t know why I did this in retrospect, bitch shouldn’t have had my name I guess.
