reblog and put in the tags if you think your profile pic would have a good met gala outfit
I agree with the message but?! this is tone deaf coming from one of the elitist, most prestigious fashion events in the world. you are rich to even be invited, an event where the ticket is literally $30,000…. I’m gonna eat YOU
None of you people understand the actual reality of how much the ultra-rich hoard. Aoc is not even a blip on the radar of rich. Aoc grew up poor in the bronx and continued to work as a bartender while she was on the campaing trail.
Is she wealthier than the average person? Yeah. No shit sherlock. But does she qualify…as RICH?? My fam…my guy….my bud…..the answer is simply No.
Aoc wants to tax the 1%. The people who can afford to buy space programs, influence elections and send countries to war.
She is not referring to…like….lil nas x here. Shes referring to jeff fucking bezos.
Please learn the difference between BEING WEALTHY (aoc) and being RICH (bezos, gates, etc)
For the love of god. SHE DIDN’T PAY FOR HER TICKET!!!!! OR her dress!!! She was invited by a designer who fucking paid for all of that shit!!! This is SO embarrassing!!!! Do you guys not fact check ANYTHING you read?? This is your level of critical thinking skills??????????? Yeah working class hero AOC paid $35k to go to a rich person costume party in a dress that said Tax The Rich and at no point did she or any of her staff think “hey maybe paying $35k to do this will make u seem like a hypocrite.” Of COURSE THAT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENED!!!!! This is literally LITERALLY what they are playing on Fox News right now you are all literally regurgitating right wing propaganda without a thought in the world. Please for the love of god when you see something that seems ridiculously out of character or doesn’t make sense, FACT CHECK IT!!!!
As soon as I saw this dress, I knew that someone on Tumblr would be preparing the worst take possible 😂
it’s like y'all didn’t even watch bo Burnhams inside
exactly and i want to further note that elliot wearing the suit as a trans masc is very on point with american fashion and how trans people are expected to pass as the gender they identify as and even when we do wear the things expected of our perceived gender we still aren’t good enough and that-
also the fact that a trans person being openly trans is radical and dramatic in and of itself without need for embellishment
Also also, apparently the suit is intentionally ill-fitting because it’s a tribute to closeted gay and queer men (and the green rose is a queer symbol dating back to Oscar Wilde).
I understand why people dislike leather and animal products. But leather is such a good resource? Like… My mom bought a sturdy leather coat in 1989. I’m in my 20’s and I now wear that coat. That’s a 30 year old coat? 30 years, two generations, one coat. Versus, like… A plastic one, that rips and gets thrown out, or releases bits into the ecosystem every time it’s washed, takes a billion years to decompose, lasts maybe a decade if you’re super duper careful, and uses oil products in it’s construction.
Like, yeah leather is expensive and comes from a living animal, and I’m not saying that you should go out and buy fifty fur and leather products for the he’ll of it, but like… Maybe the compromise is worth it?
One animal product, valued and respected and worn down for generations, versus like… Six plastic products that will never ever go away?
idk, I could be wrong.
this is why im so fucking pissed white colonial fucks and white vegans get so enraged at indigenous people for using hides/leather and animal bones as if that shit breaks or rips like cheap polyester does
It’s not “vegan wool”, it’s plastic.
It’s not “vegan leather”, it’s plastic.
It’s not “vegan fur”, it’s fucking plastic. It’s all plastic.
It’s all fucking plastic, and every time you wash it, or damage it, or try to dispose of it, that plastic winds up in the water, in the earth, in the air.
Hell, half the damage is already done when the fucking things are made. As the OP says, it’s all oil and oil products; it creates pollution just to produce synthetic fabrics and materials, even before you try to throw them away, which, I mean, good luck with that.
A lot of vegan ideology is built up around a very superficial set of ethics that are supposedly about protecting animals, wildlife and the environment, but they fall apart when you look even a little bit below the surface. Every time you eschew an animal-based product in favour of something “synthetic” for the sake of “saving an animal’s life”, you’re creating pollution and trash that won’t go away for thousands of years, damaging the Earth and making life so much worse for countless animals and people.
Think about this stuff more than not at all, please.
People are gonna eat meat forever so just let the skin have a purpose already, an extra whole ass cow didn’t have to die for dependable shoes to exist
This, also keep in mind that the “American cowboy” has been exaggerated greatly by Hollywood and popular myth - it was really only a twenty/thirty year period in the mid-19th century that essentially ended around the American civil war when barbed wire was introduced and eliminated the need for them.
If you’re ever in Denver, check out the Black American West Museum. Lots of photos, artifacts, etc.
John Wayne’s character in The Searchers was based on a black man named Britt Johnson.
No baggage fees. No TSA line. No removing shoes. You could bring water on the plane; hell, you could bring a whole meal. If you didn’t, they would give you one, free, whether you ordered it or not.
We really have just plummeted as a society
On top of the fact that calling AOC a hypocrite for going to the Met Gala wearing a “tax the rich” dress doesn’t make sense when 1) her ticket was free and 2) the dress was donated by a 501© in support of black-owned businesses trying to get their names out there……. The only people I’ve seen acting like it’s wrong for her to be at the Met Gala are also the same people uncritically reblogging pictures of their favorite celebrities in big fancy Met Gala outfits. Like boo…. where do you think THEY are 😭
The response to the OnlyFans porn ban shows just how much people hate women. There are endless posts on social media mocking sex workers for “having to get a real job now”. The very same people making these posts are almost certainly consumers of porn.

You could make this shorter by just going “I’m a thief and refuse to pay for content”. Would save you a lot of time.
I’m a thief and refuse to pay for content and i encourage everyone else to do the same! Don’t be a little bitch like chemychems and jump aboard the ship, matey!

For context: it is now canon to the AU that Mia’s parents meet Miranda and the girls, except they don’t know about the whole “I live in a Village worshipping a pissy fungal overlord led by a mutant cult and oh I married their pseudo goddess :)” deal. To keep it more believable they buy an apartment in Vienna and it goes well until they decide to pay them a surprise visit and they have about 5 hours to get their asses to Austria and make the place look like someone actually lives there (someone pls buy some forks and spoons). Kudos to Mia for not having a heart attack.
The babies are finally done! I initially just wanted to redo the lineart but went a little overboard oops but who knew rendering metal could be so much fun. Bonus the version without metal bc I love how their faces came out:
Yes I’ll do the prints and stickers for the lovely people that asked
Shoots when you least expect it
Strategic clothes ripping
Uses a whip as a weapon
Indiana Jones is a femme fatale.
