hey hey! don’t do this!
i’ve seen a lot of people in the notes say like “well i just enjoy it even though other people don’t like it,” but that’s not what i mean, i mean like when they flat out say that what i like is stupid.
i much prefer if they said “that’s not really my thing, but glad it makes you happy!” because what happens is this
then slowly like you start to think “maybe it is stupid” and it takes away all the fun of just enjoying something that makes you happy and it’s not a good feeling

Okay so clearly Tumblr is blocking the posts about the #ActiBlizzWalkout cause my reblogs aren’t showing up on my dash - anyway don’t cross the virtual picket line folks and let’s stand up for women and marginalized groups in the gaming workplace.
Avoid these games/companies, thanks
Boycotts work, yall
Keep avoiding these games for the time being, especially the ones that use online services.
ok, so I never make posts like this, but I feel like I should let y'all know.
on august 6th, there will be a Tumblr blackout.
so as most of you know, Tumblr has tried making post plus a thing, and unfortunately, after all the surveys and posts we made against it, their making it a thing anyway.
so, another Tumblr user whom I forgot the name of, decided to make a point to Tumblr that we do not want, never wanted, nor needed, post+. and to make this point, we are gonna hit Tumblr where it hurts.
so, on august 6th, No one use Tumblr, this blackout, if I’m remembering right from the original post, will last 24 hours. please spread the word about this, make posts about this, do what you need to do to to make sure Tumblr plus doesn’t become a thing.
mutuals, care to help out by making a post or reblogging the original post or this one?
anyways, japanese imperialism is not a thing of the past and still exists today. japanese propaganda is in the little things, and to end it you have to recognize them. stop glorifying the rising sun flag. pay attention to how japanese media treats its korean characters as opposed to the white ones. be on your guard when anyone or anything implies that japan is in any way superior to other asian countries. above all, listen to and support any poc who has been affected by japanese imperialism.
you can reblog this post instead of liking it btw
Millennials and Gen Z? BUY SHIT! OWN THINGS! DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!
Listen to me.
You do not want this future to happen to you I promise you. Because the minute you enter into a subscription existence you allow for a possibility of losing everything. Why?
Well, because when you stop paying then you stop having.
I buy my cars outright for this reason.
I have not thrown away my DVD collection for this reason.
I still have my old-school ipod for this reason.
I buy songs I really like direct from the artist on top of my subscription for this reason.
I back shit up on to my external hard drives rather than depending on a cloud only for this reason (which reminds me that I need to do taht this weekend).
If someone ELSE is holding the physical source of what you’re paying for? YOU DON’T OWN IT. You’re just giving someone your energy and time for permission to access it.
You’re leasing your existence.
Don’t fucking fall for it, do you hear me?
It’s bad enough we have to lease our water, our heat, our internet and our entertainment.
Buy what you want outright WHENEVER YOU CAN. Then do anything you can to maintain it in the face of planned obsolescence. I promise you, there will be a moment when you will be glad you did
Because aside from relationships? Things are literally all the system let us keep in this existence so don’t lease your fucking possessions if at all avoidable because at this stage in capitalism we’re all a few bad days from being unable to pay those leases. And then what? Then you only have what you can keep and those comforts and necessities that will keep you going, I promise you. Don’t let there be anything more that can be taken from you than absolutely necessary.
“Aaniin, it’s Giiwedin here, Northwind.
One of my great friends was violently arrested this morning out of ceremony.
Their name is Alex Golden Wolf and they’re a two spirit leader from the White Earth Nation.
This photo is from this morning, July 23rd 2021. It breaks my heart to see the police violently arresting a ceremonial person.
This, I would say, is a violation of the American Indian Religious Freedom Act is happening at the Red Lake Treaty Camp here in northern Minnesota.
Follow their Instagram linked here @redlaketreatycamp as well as the link in my bio to keep updated.
And please, if you have the financial means, send funds to this water protectors Venmo @Alex-Golden-Wolf
“Trans women have so much media representation!” Ah yes, who can forget all our magnificent representation like the antagonist of Sleep Away Camp, the antagonist of Dressed to Kill, the antagonist of Soapdish, the antagonist of Ace Ventura, or our representation of how disturbing srs is in The Assignment, or our representation in Naked Gun 33 1/3 when Tanya is revealed to have a penis and Frank is horrified and runs away, or our representation in Family Guy how sex with a trans woman is responded to with vomiting, or our representation in South Park from “Janet” Garrison.
TMEs on this site will see trans women receive an unfathomable amount of public hatred and think they’re the real victims because they don’t get attention
The best I’ve come to expect from TMEs is the theoretical support of transfems? Like they’ll scream “support trans women!!” And then not platform trans women at all because their visceral transmisogyny is still there.
I’m just super fucking bitter that once the flint water crisis got it’s 15 minutes of fame people stopped giving a shit. The water is still poisoned, people! Donations have plummeted and people have been forced back into drinking and bathing with the water! The medical effects of this are astounding, cases of legionnaires disease have skyrocketed, people are having seizures, people are having weird rashes break out over their body, people (including me!) are having their blood poisoned, and it’s not just lead! it’s coliform bacteria! it’s THMs! it’s all in the water and it gets into the bloodstream and breaks down blood vessels, causing bruising and petechiae and internal bleeding and no one gives a shit anymore and it’s only gotten worse like how many people are going to have to die until people realize this is still a problem
I would like to add that the people of Flint cannot sell their houses, because selling a house with leaded water is illegal. Additionally, households with children can’t stop paying for the water because living in a house without running water is cause for CPS to take their kids. Flint has been living this way for over two years.
The people of Flint are trapped by the legal system. And it is only the most high profile case out many cities with a similar problem.
Because the government has abandoned them, they are dependant on help from the outside. Donate here
Mari Copeny has taken the initiative to create a water filter. I’ve linked her GoFundMe that’s she using to raise money for it. She’s been able to raise $50k in donations but her next goal is $1 million
Water is a basic human right, it says a lot about governments that fail to provide that. Especially for a so called ‘first world country’
This is as of 4/26/21.
@one-time-i-dreamt signal boost?
Water is a basic human right, water is a basic human right, water is a basic human right

society fucked up by letting dvds go out of style because streaming is not ownership, titles leave streaming services to end up on another (or leave streaming entirely) all the time and stuff gets edited out a lot too. physical media is so important i wish buying dvds and physically owning something could be “trendy” again because corporations have ruined streaming forever with their greed
Escape rooms exist but we’re all sleeping on the concept of a break-in room.
Within 50 minutes you and your group have to break into a room and steal something valuable. Themes include:
- The White House
- Art museum
- Jewelry store
- Best Buy
- Your ex’s apartment (where they have embarrassing and/or incriminating photos of you)
- Rival scientist’s lab
- CEO’s summer home
- Area 51
- A lawyer’s house. You have the find evidence they’re crooked.
NICE. I’d also like to add:
- Mathilda-themed break-in, where you have to get in and out of Miss Trunchbull’s house for the doll and chocolates. For intermediate players only because that shit’s gonna be intense.
Oh! That’s a beast!
But if we’re getting in and out, let’s up the ante.
- James Bond theme. Get in, get the evidence of their plan and free the dumbass agent who got caught then get out. Timed to the length of their monologue!
- Haunted library. You have to steal a rare book from the archives. Only one flashlight per player allowed. Good luck.
- A stepparents house to get your family records back
- A TSA office to get your stuff back. Because the TSA takes stuff that’s not even dangerous for stupid reasons
- Something Bioshock-themed. All I need to say
I don’t know if Post+ is a good or bad idea, but people shitting on it without even a second thought is just another proof that no one values content creators here. That art is not seen as work worth being paid for.
It’s easy to paint Tumblr as the bad guy, but who here is expecting to be entertained for free, and not contribute in any way in return?
Who’s expecting artists to, once again, work for free?
freezing cold take op, i say this as gently as i can, this scheme is genuinely illegal and can cause fanartists and fic writers who charge for their work in very real danger of being sued! you are legally not allowed to profit off of fanworks
i say all of this as an artist. its not “we dont think that artists are worth paying” its “tumblr is notoriously bad at security, there is no way to block your supporters if they harass you, and you can get sued by Disney for putting your sketch of mickey mouse behind a paywall”
also there are SO many other sites that are LEAGUES more secure than tumblr is. do not trust tumblr with your banking info i can promise you it will be stolen.
patreon and ko-fi were made for a reason and are much, much better because they were created with the intention of artists monetizing their work
Also are MLM not allowed to have animated representation (and multiple MLM in one show, at that!) when WLW have Steven Universe, She-Ra, Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, The Owl House, The Loud House, etc.?
We have Kipo, Voltron (barely), two married minor characters in She-Ra… and what else?
I haven’t seen anyone talk about it on Tumblr yet but in Mexico they’re doing a huge step forward against conversion therapy for asexual people
5 Mexican ace people are suing Mexico’s health system for cataloguing asexuality as a psychiatric illness and for having forced them into conversion therapy which had the objective of turning ace people into allosexual (meaning non-asexual) people.
Translation:Tweet by the organization Colectivo PTF Yucatán (Collective for the protection of all families in Yucatán): “📢 From the Colectivo Para la Protección de Todas las Familias en Yucatán, we will accompany 5 asexual people from the state [of Yucatán] in their recurso de amparo [a writ to protect the constitutional rights of a person] against the Mexican Secretary of Health and other authorities for cataloguing asexuality as a psychiatric illness. #NothingToCure 🖤💟💜 [hearts in the colours of the asexuality flag]
Translation:ASEXUAL PEOPLE SUE THE [MEXICAN] HEALTH SYSTEM FOR THE CONVERSION THERAPYFive asexual people from Yucatán have presented a writ of amparo against the federal Secretary of Health and other authorities of the National Health System for cataloguing asexuality as a psychiatric illness. They demand the protocols and internal practises be modified, as well as allowing healthcare, specially the psychiatric services, to access the right to healthcare without discrimination.Asexuality is an orientation characterised for not feeling sexual attraction towards anyone or the lack of interest in sexual relations. It’s calculated that at least 1% of the population is asexual. This will be the first time that a writ of amparo is presented to defend the rights of asexual people in Mexico.From the Collective for the Protection of All Families in Yucatán we accompany this law suit in which the plaintiff resorted to the Federal Justice after the federal authorities confirmed to them that asexuality is understood as a psychiatric problem under the National Healthcare System’s framework.According to the Secretary of Health staff, if a person states that they don’t have sexual attraction towards anyone, first of all studies are done on this person to identify if [their asexuality] has a physiological origin. Once this option is ruled out, they [asexual people] are channelled to the psychiatry staff for therapy. This practise is in fact a conversion therapy, given that it seeks to cure people whose orientation is asexual. The healthcare authorities do not contemplate in their protocols the distinction between asexuality and physiological alterations.The demand was admitted last Friday [July 16th 2021] in the Third District Court in Yucatán, who will resolve the matter.
I need to print me out a list of everything they own so I don’t buy it when I go to the store
I gotchu, and anyone else who were curious:
Johnson & Johnson just needa go out of business at this point 💁🏽♀️
J&J really got a chokehold on the entire industry. Them, Disney and the Kraft corporation. They definitely got bodies in the basement.
…..*washes sunscreen off my face*
Need everyone to know J and J was one of those groups that argued that talcum powder (which included aesbestos) wasn’t hurting anyone.
(If you’re sitting there like hey wasn’t talcum powder for babies? yes it was. There was an entire litigation about them arguing that actually using talcum powder for babies which included asbestos wasn’t bad.If you’re sitting there going hey wow wouldn’t that include babies from decades ago who are now adults with sever cancer??? YUP YEAH YOUR’RE FUCKING CORRECT).
Like actually J&J should have gone out of business almost 30 years ago and its a god damn crime they still exist and can sell medicine now
J&J also has a class action lawsuit against them for their shampoo brand OGX which is arguing that many shampoos and conditioners from that brand contain formaldehyde, which causes cancer when exposed to water. Which is a vital step in showering. So I just changed shampoo brands entirely and will do my best to avoid J&J products because this is terrifying
Vic stans have made it increasingly difficult to criticize FUNimation in good faith
Europe is currently being burned alive and people still think climate change is a joke. It’s warmer in North Europe than in the middle eastern deserts.
Nearly all northern countries broke their decades old heat records this week.
Its only in the low hundreds in farenheit??? In America we get that for like a month or two straight every year??? Y'all need to deal is it really normally so cold over there that yall can live with a little heat???
If you’re gonna have an ignorant American attitude then please only stay on American posts. No one in North Europe has an AC in their houses. Stores, animal shelters, elderly houses, no one has AC. the houses are designed to keep the heat in. The people are not accustomed to the heat. A sudden climate shift like this is extremely dangerous to older people and babies specifically.
There are programs being run to inform elderly people what to do to not die in this heat. There was a heatwave in the Netherlands in 2010 in which approximately 500 more elderly people passed away than normally.
One thing people don’t often appreciate is that the southern US states are along the same latitude as the Middle Eastern deserts, rather than northern Europe. We’re not competing with Texas, we’re competing with northern Canada. If Saskatoon can’t handle Mexican weather, London can’t handle Middle-Eastern weather. It’s not built for it at all.
very helpful and informative graphic
@frogs-smoking-cigarettes weren’t people saying that when Texas ‘couldn’t handle a little snow’ ?
I know people were saying that during the Washington heat wave (where I live). Aka, please shut up.
