y’all I just read that apparently someone thinks that Olivia doesn’t deserve Asher ???? HUH ??? more like he doesn’t deserve her
I’m convinced that these Asher fans are delusional and antiblack and hate Black women. Like Asher literally took advantage of Olivia the night of her overdose then slut-shames her for it in front of everyone and then when they do get together, he doesn’t even have her as a priority and all he cared about is himself. Do I even need to bring up the fact that he literally did drugs while being with a recovering addict, not caring that it could jeopardize her recovery and then lied to her about it. If she didn’t tell billy and do the right thing, he would’ve kept doing it. She stayed helping him out and being his problem solver and putting all of this effort in a relationship just to get yelled at in return. He yelled at her whether she helped him out and made her feel like she had to apologize, even though she did the right thing and didn’t care about the things that she cared about and you’re telling me that Asher is the better choice and that Olivia didn’t deserve him ?? HE DIDNT DESERVE HER AND SHE DESERVES SO MUCH BETTER AND THATS SPENCER. Spencer actually puts her and her well-being first and wouldn’t do a dang thing to compromise that and is always there for her and lives her for her and cares about what she cares about and is actually a priority and much more.
PS, if someone thinks that the situation of Olivia and Asher and their hookup, is rape, you have no right to tell them that it’s not and it’s the show’s fault for writing it that way and they need to address it, especially since y’all are so ignorant and honestly, if you are white, your opinions aren’t needed on a BLACK SHOW and y’all show your anti blackness all the time and that needs to come to a stop.
LITERALLY THO like where is the line for you ??? he literally saw Olivia stumbling on her feet and slut her words and mix drugs and alcohol, was much more sober than she was and was sober enough to point out how messed up she was and how far gone she was and STILL TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HER ??? and to add to it, he slut-shamed her for it in front of everyone as if it was her fault and she had to take the blame when it should’ve been Asher like HOW DO YALL STILL LIKE HIM AFTER THAT ? then the writers make the horrible decision of putting them together and he die drugs while being with her, not caring about how that could affect her and her recovery and didn’t care at all for what she wanted and didn’t have her as a priority and literally yelled at her everytime she helped him whereas she felt like she had to apologize like how would you want them together when she could be with someone that puts her first, her well-being is important to him and supports her in everything she wants to do and even more (Spencer). And let’s not forget how he and his father was mad racist towards Spencer whether it was outright racism or micro aggressions and someone’s racism isn’t a phase, it’s who they are so I’m sick of people acting like he had character development just because he’s not racist anymore like wowwwwww he’s doing the BARE MINIMUM and he does all of this and y’all want me to feel bad for him ??? that’s funny. I don’t understand Asher stans and I never will and the one thing I do know is that you Asher stans are VERY antiblack and you hate women and honestly, your opinions on a BLACK SHOW isn’t needed. It’s mad sus and very telling that your favorite character/the character you’re rooting for the most is the white side character of a BLACK SHOW.

As they pulled up in front of the synagogue, Lexie was so nervous she couldn’t keep her hands from flapping all around. She stayed right next to Papa while they walked in. Sophie, of course, was running ahead.
Lexie felt a little better once they were inside. It looked a lot like their old synagogue, with dark carpet and high ceilings and the wooden ark—the big cabinet that holds the Torah scrolls—at the front of the room. She felt like she could breathe a little bit better. She knew what to do here.
Lexie had made a deal with Daddy this morning that if she came to service today and talked to people at the oneg meal after, she didn’t have to come back tomorrow for Sunday school, when it would just be kids and teachers. Sophie had asked if that meant she could go tomorrow and not today, but Daddy said no because there was no one to stay home with her.
No one usually believed this, but Lexie did really like people. She just was no good at them and never knew what she was supposed to say. But that didn’t mean she didn’t like them. Still holding onto Papa’s hand, she looked around at the people who were talking and laughing before sitting down. There were a few other kids sitting up front with each other instead of their families.
Lexie kind of wanted to go talk to them, but that might be too much newness for one day. So instead she sat between her dads and chewed on her rubber octopus until the first prayers started.
By the time they finished singing an hour later, Lexie felt both very happy and very restless. Hebrew songs, even the ones she couldn’t understand, always made her feel light inside and safe and happy. She liked to imagine the lives of everyone else who had sung those same prayers for all the hundreds of years since they were written. But it was hard to sit still for a whole hour, and she couldn’t help swinging her legs a bit under her chair.
Lexie counted five other kids who weren’t too little but also weren’t teenagers. Three of them left right away, though, so when she sat down at the end of the table, there were only two girls next to her.
“Hi,” said the girl closest to her. “I’m Rebecca. Are you visiting?”
Lexie, of course, had just stuffed a strawberry into her mouth. She could feel her cheeks turning pink while she tried to chew quickly and they stared at her. Finally, when she could talk again, she said, “No. I just moved here. And I’m Lexie.” Her eyes didn’t move from her plate.
“I’m Angie,” said the girl on the other side of Rebecca. She had to lean very far forward to see Lexie, and her hair was dragging in her food. She didn’t seem to care. “Do you like anime? We love to draw our favorite anime characters. You should definitely hang out with us after Sunday school tomorrow.”
“I'm not coming tomorrow.” The idea of new friends was tempting, though. “Maybe next week?”
"Next week is the day before school starts," said Rebecca. "We don't have Sunday school."
Before Lexie could decide if she was relieved or disappointed, Angie added, "But we'll see you at service again. And you should come on Sunday once school starts."
"Ok. I watch anime sometimes, especially the magic ones."
"Ooh, I like the sports ones mostly but my sister is always drawing these magic girls," Angie said.
This led to a long discussion about the best kind of anime eyes. Lexie's friends at her old school had also liked to draw their favorite anime characters, so she was confident in her opinions. She almost didn't want to leave when Daddy tapped her shoulder, even though they had been done eating for a while.
It was still a relief to sink into the backseat of the car. Her ears were still ringing from the noise of a room full of chatter. She closed her eyes and relaxed into the familiar smell of graham crackers that filled the old car. It was quiet and the oppressive heat made her instantly sleepy.
This lasted for about 30 seconds until Sophie threw herself into the other seat. "I made another best friend and we're gonna sit together at Sunday school and then she's gonna come play with my Otters." Sophie was very proud of her collection of tiny velveteen otters. They even had little houses and furniture. Lexie thought they were the only things Sophie had taken our of the boxes that still filled her room.
"We have to unpack. She's not gonna come over this week."
"Papa said!" Her whine was getting louder and Lexie found herself rocking with the stress of making her sister understand.
At that moment, their dads opened the front doors and climbed in.
"Papa, tell Lexie my friend is coming over!"
"Daddy, make Sophie be quiet!"
Daddy's sharp clap made both girls freeze. Clapping for silence had been used since Lexie could talk, but by now they only pulled it out when the girls were getting too rowdy or too close to arguing.
They had a system. If Daddy got them to listen, Papa had to have the discussion. The air in the car was getting ever more hot and stuffy, but Daddy didn't turn the key. Papa turned around to face the backseat.
"Lexie, focus on your own life and not your sister's. Sophie, not everyone always needs to know every detail of your life. Ok?"
There were muttered "Ok"s and Daddy finally turned on the car, and the air conditioning with it. Chastened, Lexie watched the unfamiliar tree-lined streets fly past. The cool air and relative quiet was a relief. She hoped fall came soon and winter brought snow. She was embarrassed at getting in trouble already, but there was also a glimmer of hope and excitement. School hadn't even started yet and she'd met girls her age who were nice. They liked anime more than octopuses, but she was used to deferring to her friends' interests. She was weird and autistic, but that was ok. She just had to do what other kids wanted to and they might like her well enough. It had worked before.
By the time they got home Sophie was chattering about her friend again, but Lexie didn't mind as much. She actually felt a bit better. She'd known most of the kids in her old class since kindergarten, and it was comforting to have already met a couple she would see this year. The still mostly-empty house didn't seem as strange and forbidding as before as she bounded up the stairs to her neatly organized room and threw herself on the bed to get lost in her favorite book again. She knew no one would bother her until dinner; she had spent the whole morning with people and been sufficiently social, and her reward was a quiet afternoon to read.
Love rebels but I’m never gonna forget the time that Star Wars named a character “Azadi” and then made him look like this:
#why’d they make him look like and sound like an ~all American white man~ like nooo 😭😭😭😭 #for context: Azadi literally means freedom in hindi Urdu and a bunch of other languages but is an important word for many south asian and #west Asian activists. see Wikipedia article and Google etc etc #tara talks#Star Wars#media#rebels #Star Wars rebels #sw rebels#swr
Talks about We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story in the same way people talk about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
#its about the death of the american dream paired with the immaculate mementos an idea can leave you with. it explores dark areas of the mind #places you cant come back from. people you wont meet again. chasing a concept for all of your earthly time can give you nothing or everythin #man
