“BIG THINGS ARE COMING” MERCH:
TIL A new color. Eigengrau is a shade of grey that we can all see, but never knew what it was called. The color is visible when you open your eyes in a pitch black room. All you need to do is find the darkest room in your house, walk in, close your eyes for a minute, open them and you’ll see it!
You won’t trick me demon
This is what it comes down to: I have friends who will not die if Biden is in the White House and Democrats retake the senate. Because they’re unlikely to keep trying to get rid of the affordable care act. Because social security and Medicare are safe under them.
Biden and Harris are not my first choice or even my fourth.
But my friends will survive a little longer, and we’ll have an administration that might actually listen when we push towards change. Will they listen well? Who knows. I feel pretty grim about it, at this point. But the friends I have who won’t survive another Trump presidency will be alive to join me in the fight. And some of them are disability activists with law degrees, so in an administration that actually accepts the rule of law, they can fight a hell of a lot harder than I can.
There is no amount of mutual aid that will keep some of these friends alive through another Trump presidency. And they would not accept it, because it would be an unconscionable amount of money to spend on so few people, when so many more would be suffering worse.
So that’s what it comes down to. A vote for Biden. A vote for dems further down the ticket. So that the hard-hitters I know can stay alive for the fight against them.
So that’s why I’m voting. It might not be enough to make you vote. That might be too small a thing, that handful of lives preserved when the government as a whole might not change all that much in the particulars of their major harm-causing policies.
But it’s enough for me.
Experience: Learning the right way to connect the dots.
This is the best representation of something I have been trying to explain to people for years!!!! Saving this to my phone so I can routinely pull it out when I need.
So if you look in the lower right-hand corner of that last panel with the unicorn, you’ll see that it looks like something was erased or pasted over. Know why? Because this isn’t the original version of the cartoon.
Yeah, that’s right. This entire strip is a comment on antisemtism and y’all changed it to be more “fun” and deleted the artist’s signature in the process. So anyway, this isn’t just some helpful infographic or a silly meme, it’s a commentary on how Jews have been getting blamed for world’s ills for 2,000 years, and whoever erased that panel can fuck right off for eternity.
ruth bader ginsburg has died. call your senators and remind them over and over and over again of mitch mcconnell’s own rule to not replace supreme court justices in a presidential election year. call them as many times as it takes until they agree to not fill the seat until 2021.
acting as if resistance is futile and the result here is a foregone conclusion is how it becomes one. i’m so scared. my rights and the rights of people i love are on the line. i cannot go quietly. we cannot go quietly. we need to fight like hell for everyone who will be hurt by another brett kavanaugh on the court. we need to fight for our loved ones. we need to fight for ourselves. we need to fight for the republic. call your senators. call until they’re sick of you calling. call them until you’re hoarse. don’t go quietly.
Also it’s specifically the Senate that decides Supreme Court justices, so calling your House rep does nothing (since I’m seeing misinformation flying around this website on another post). CALL YOUR SENATORS.
Especially do so if you live in one of the states listed here, especially if that person in a close race is a Republican. Make sure they know they don’t have your vote this November (regardless of if they had it in the first place) if they confirm Trump’s appointee.
Okay, but just in case anyone is coming to tumblr dot com for my hot takes on 20+ year old kids’ movies: Kuzco super WAS gay (or at least coded as such) and of course, I didn’t get it until I watched it as a gay grownup.
He is played obviously camp and dramatic, for a start, and there is the aforementioned “hate your hair/not likely/yikes yikes yikes/let me guess you have a great personality” summary dismissal of all his potential brides. Then he spends dinner asking Yzma about Kronk (“so he seems nice? He’s what, in his late twenties?”) and otherwise being slightly obsessed with him.
Then there is the whole Adventure of Doom with Pacha, him being ever huffy about the Kiss of Life, and then the restaurant gag where Kuzco takes to playing Pacha’s fake wife and dressing up in ladies’ clothing with great gusto (reinforced by the waitress’ “bless you for coming out in public” remark when Pacha says they’re on their honeymoon). Then when he is finally de-llamafied, we don’t see him paired off with the obligatory girl from the lineup earlier, as might otherwise be expected in a Disney movie. Instead he is still single, but goes to found family it up with Pacha, Chica, Kronk, etc, which dare we remark is a very queer trope.
In short, I have no idea how a Disney movie with no white people (all the characters are Indigenous/people of color), a gay king, cross-dressing jokes, and the most offbeat plot of all time actually ever got made (can you imagine the Family Friendly Mouse doing that today? Let us also talk about Kronk because he is a brilliant deconstruction of both toxic masculinity and the musclebound henchman stereotype.) Other than that this was the Chaos Hour of animated movies in the late 90s/early 2000s, and yes.
emperor kuzco was clearly gay
hes 19, with unlimited power, and he ain’t got a gf. the only time we see him interact with any women his own age is when he’s rejecting like 7 of them rapid fire. he pretends to date pacha in a gag that lasts like 10 solid minutes. listen to me god damnit
So yes. There you have it. I will not be taking criticism at this time.
Isn’t Acoylte a sith thing?? 😂
ITS A TERM THAT HAS BEEN USED BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS TO DENOTE A DEACONS ASSISTANT FUCKO
TIL that Teddy Roosevelt would regularly go skinny dipping in the Potomac. Once while out on a walk with Gifford Pinchot and the French Ambassador, the three jumped in, however the French Ambassador kept on his gloves. When asked why, he responded, “We might meet ladies.“
absolute gentleman maneuvers
Dune…the party supplies!
What self-respecting eight or nine year old living in the mid-1980s would want some stupid Star Wars themed birthday party when they could have this?
Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 10,191 AG.
