#fun fact (because my cat also drools so i had to look this up) #cats only drool when they're really happy/content/relaxed #because they're relaxed enough that they stop paying attention to like half of their functions so they end up drooling #my cat does it when i cuddle her on the couch #so audrey really really really loves and is comfortable around op
#anyway this is QUITE LITERALLY the only table placement that matters #been waiting since episode 2 season goddamn 1 for this to return #look at how much they FIT together look at them #barchie looking like some freaking magazine couple #jeronica looking like dark academia librarians or smth #cannot BELIEVE that they've actually given me something like this #now kiss on the lips the pairs of you
The “girlboss movement” is literally just women buying planners and men rebranding the same fauxgressive kind of movies they’ve been making for decades. You need to worry about real things. Like the chupacabra and saving up beans for when the big one hits
we could be talking about how an average of three women are murdered by men every day in the united states and the number has been steadily increasing for the past five years, but instead of recognizing that this is an issue for all women across all races, instead of acknowledging that all women are systemically oppressed for being women, people are talking about how manipulative white women are. i’ve seen so many people mention that white women get more news coverage when we get killed, but i haven’t seen anyone actually do anything to increase visibility for murdered woc, and i have seen very few people getting to the root of the issue and trying to find a way to make the killing stop.
People about trans women at the met gala: so gorgeous!!! 💕💕💕 Stunning, beautiful!!
People about Elliot Page: Lmao! Dumb man! He wore a boring suit 😡 Little boy, his sleeves are too big lmao! His haircut omg! Gross it’s so bad lmao! Victorian Child Alert haha!! Stinky Boring Man in a Suit 🤢🤢
He looks wonderful, he looks happy, he looks like a trans men finally being allowed to wear the prom suit he never could.
He looks like a young man borrowing an oversized outdated jacket from his supportive uncle and thrift store suit pants. His hair is brushed like a mother did it, his clunky shoes look like the ones I wore in highschool. His bright green rose, that’s almost a green carnation, poorly pinned to his suit jacket. It’s a purposeful statement and it brought tears to my eyes.
He understood the assignment, he got the theme, what screams indeoence more than finally getting to be free enough to experience the things other young men were permitted to have when they were 18, that a trans man can only finally do while nearing 30.
It’s not at all lost on me that out of all the men wearing a black suit, its the trans man who has been critized for dressing as a man.
And God, he looks happy. His smile reaches his eyes, even under a mask. And I think that’s what matters most. I think that’s what says “independence” that’s what says freedom, it says love, and hope. It says, “this is me,”.
out of all the men wearing a black suit, its the trans man that has been criticized for dressing as a man
#elliot page is literally the only man at the met gala allowed to wear a black suit irregardless of theme #well him and eugene lee yang but that's because eugene's outfit fell through #elliot can do whatever he wants he looks like he's thriving and he deserves it
Like. He is ready for this con to be OVER. He likes this girl but he was in it for the money and he knows that’s the one question he forgot to give her an answer to, because no one knows what he did that night.
The absolute wonder in his face as he realizes the girl he saved has been right in front of him; it’s no longer a con. The money isn’t even in his mind. He’s gone his whole life assuming she’s dead or long gone, that he failed.
But here she is, and in this moment he’s so shocked and awed, and it’s such a beautiful moment.
now that the elon grimes breakup thing is inevitably happening please for the love of god do not girlbossify grimes or put grimes on a pedestal for breaking up with elon because grimes is just as performative and shitty LMAO
I love how everyone agrees that 2016, specifically, was when the world jumped the shark, and while we all acknowledge that things have gotten worse and worse every year to the point where 2016 seems tame, THAT was the tipping point. When 2016 was happening we all knew that we were watching the world become silly, and none of us really knew *how* we knew that, but we did. Stuff happened and we just knew that things would be silly from that point on and we were absolutely right.
Actually my favourite part of this was how we all started by joking that 2016 was a really strange year that we would never be able to explain to anyone who didn’t live through it, and then the slowly mounting panic as the year stretched towards its end and 2017 came and we just had to accept that it wasn’t a weird year, the world was just like this now.
“Grandma, how did the world fall? What went wrong?”
“Well you see Jimmy it all started with this FUCKING gorilla”
#2016 was just supposed to be this weirdo year where everyone died for some goddamn reason #but really david bowie kicking it a week into 2016 should have been seen for the sign it was
when andrew garfield’s peter parker was saving ppl in cars hanging from a bridge and that one little kid is too scared to climb up so he rips off his own mask and says “see? i’m just a guy” like. mcu really truly could never have such a simple and compassionate moment ever
“the question is can pelosi orchestrate this so-” THE ANSWER IS YES BECAUSE SHE IS NANCY PELOSI AND THE UNIVERSE BENDS ACCORDING TO HER WILL WE’VE BEEN OVER THIS
#personal #to be clear i'm not angry i just wanna emphasize this #nancy pelosi can do anything. because she is the smartest woman. and i love her more than anything. #(well ok not more than anything i do have pets and i'm not crazy) #the point is if miss nancy wants shit done shits get done #because she's just That Good
what is it about the entirety of the acting and writing in bridgerton that just sets my goddamn teeth on edge
#personal #like there's some bad accent work which is weird because i think most of the cast is british #but there's just something about it #maybe it's the history buff in me #cuz they are also way too informal
how did gabby petito’s ~*white female fragility*~ help her when someone called 911 and reported that her boyfriend was literally physically assaulting her while driving, and when the cops pulled them over and were talking to them the Entire Time the woman was SOBBING, but despite the 911 call clearly stating he was hitting HER, both she and her boyfriend said she was hitting and scratching HIM and blamed her behavior on her “anxiety” and the cops talking to the boyfriend separately were like “lol bitches are crazy amirite hahaaaaa🤪🤙” and told her “good news! your bf is nice enough not to press charges against you for domestic violence :)” …..?
im waiting for yall to get it through your heads that white men use women’s feeeeeeelings when it suits them as a pretense to do something they already wanted to do anyway, and every other time they dont give a flying fuck about the poor delicate white ladies in their lives. its about the paternalistic sense of ownership of women and defending their own honor by asserting their authority over their “property.” like, hey you can’t treat her like that, only I’M allowed to do that to her!
This is the level of hyperanalystic bullshit I live for
not so fast, in the review of gusteau’s anton ego compares gusteau to chef boyardee or hector boiardi with a tone implying that boyardee is dead and in history
given that gusteau died shortly after this and the will takes 2 years after death
assuming that ego’s review was the same year that boiardi died then the absolute EARLIEST the movie can take place is 1987
and about the incredibles, when looking for the scene with the newspaper i stumbled across this
a headline from 2002, and given that lawsuits generally take a while and september to december is really quick for the banning of supers so let’s say they were banned in mid 2003, at the EARLIEST incredibles can take place in 2018, with ratatouille taking place sometime in between 2003 and 2018
assuming that was a mistake, thunderhead died november 15 1958, a date where superheroes would’ve been illegal if incredibles 1 took place in 1962
and adding onto the impossibility of the date being 1962 his death is included in the shutdown reports of the national supers agency
so the year in which the movies take place is impossible to find because the staff of the incredibles couldn’t chose a date and commit to it
I take it back
This is the level of hyperanalystic bullshit I live for
IS NO ONE GONNA MENTION THAT THUNDERHEAD IS GAY?!?!
OMG OMG OMG
“loves kids, adopted single father of 5 children, raising them with help of his roommate, Scott”
oh my god, they were roommates
I came for Bomb Voyage, stayed for the insane detail of research, and left with knowledge I didn’t know I absolutely needed
‘nancy pelosi threatened to take aoc off of committees unless she voted ‘not no’ for the defense bill’ beyond the fact that that piddling little nothing vote does not warrant nearly as much discussion as it’s getting, that is the dumbest thing i’ve ever heard in my life
y’all think nancy pelosi, queen of congress, has such little control over herself and how she runs house democrats that she’s going to immediately strip a member of all their power the second they vote no? when other members of the godforsaken squad voted no? i hate politics so much why
#personal #also aoc is not nearly important enough for nancy pelosi to get that up in arms about #considering that she's done fuck all for actual house democrats #there's no reason for pelosi to get invested in her except when her messaging becomes a full on problem #again: nancy pelosi is smarter than y'all and better than y'all and she will always be smarter and better than y'all #and she can play this game a lot better than everyone else and doesn't make stupid moves #also if you think that aoc wouldn't immediately go crowing to her precious media about that if it had actually been threatened you're dumb #this woman does twenty tweet twitter threads the minute people say anything about her at all #she'd do a live televised address if that had happened
kind of wondering if the Steve from Blues Clues thing was more or less a temperature check to see how well the early childhood media brainwashing worked, and how easily people can be triggered and manipulated by emotional messages from fictional personas with whom now-adults formed parasocial bonds as children due to the faux-interactive, if not uncanny question-response format of the tv shows from which these personas are derived
Fellas, is it brainwashing to experience emotions based on childhood experiences
And…what, exactly, is the alternative to a show like Blue’s Clues, if you think that making an educational program that sincerely tries to make children feel empowered and loved is brainwashing? No programming at all, leaving underprivileged kids without an extra educational boost or sense of companionship? A robotic voice with no personality shouting the alphabet over and over? Seriously curious here.
yeah op you seem like someone who has normal and well-adjusted opinions on what qualifies as “brainwashing”. the fact that you apparently have kids is bone-chilling
Remember Fox News went after Mr. Rogers, of all people, for trying to create a generation of children who were too soft for the world. And again, all Fred Rogers was going for was telling children their feelings were real and that they were people, too.
Once you understand the why behind that, you’ll begin to see why there are so many people in the world trying to tear you down. FNORD
honestly the biggest reason why i never watched sherlock season three beyond having good taste was that they really fucked up moran super bad
