FOR BEING A COP LMAOOO
Good for him
okay ben used to piss me off but he’s growing on me
imagine if “get therapy” meant “you appear to be suffering due to the alienation produced by modern ways of living where caring for others is professionalized and monetized, and lacking the interpersonal connections required to cope with this distress” and not “you need to be better indoctrinated into cultural hegemony” lol
there’s a big difference between “this show contains things that are morally wrong” and “this show contains things that are morally wrong and frames them in a positive and harmless light and/or shows an amount of [insert x morally wrong thing] to the audience that feels unnecessary, gratuitous, and/or fetishistic” and it’s very very important to remember that distinction when criticizing media
Assuming Biden wins, I’m not looking forward to the “finally, our long national nightmare is over” takes; some of us have been trapped in the nightmare all our lives, if not generations, and we’re worried we’re gonna be conveniently forgotten again once life goes back to “normal” for the rest of y'all.
And then there are some
that are forged
to weather blizzards
and pain with you.
They were cast in iron,
set in gold
and never ever leave you
to face anything alone.

Real talk, as a teacher in England I can confirm that the British government does everything and anything to avoid teaching the true extent of colonial history to English kids.
You ask a modern English teenager about Northern Ireland and they probably can’t tell you about fucking anything currently going on there bar ‘I think we weren’t nice to them’, and that’s the country next fucking door so you know they don’t know shit about India or the Middle East.
The English government PURPOSEFULLY does not teach English children the real in’s and out’s of the British Empire despite a recent call to ‘widen the breadth of our curriculum’ because then where would our football hooligans who defend statues come from?
Have a good conversation with any bald headed English bloke wearing an England football shirt with an EDL tattoo and test his knowledge of the Empire he loves so much. 100 quid he knows fuck all beyond ‘we civilized those people!’
And this is why no one fucking likes us, because there’s no active effort to teach our younger generations why we were wrong or how to make things better, but there’s a clear educational agenda to shield young English children from any extensive criticism of England.
