Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
I’ve reblogged it before, time for it to go around again.
Pretty sure Kindergartners could do better than those in congress.
'What kind of overalls does Mario wear?'

DAMN IT DISNEY
PFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTTT BEST RECYCLER EVER
I’d like to see you hand draw full feature length films without ever recycling frames.
I’ve always believed that if its your own art, then tracing is okay.
I mean, you already drew it once before.
I just wonder who’s job it was to go through all of Disney’s previous films and find frames to recycle.
bisexual people aren’t more likely to cheat in relationships but we are more likely to cheat at cards, while lesbians are most likely to cheat at jenga, and genderqueer people often cheat at mario kart
how the fuck do you cheat at jenga
ask a lesbian
this is never not funny
everyone that reblogs this by July 1st will get a bad joke in their inbox
Pls have ur ask box open!!! A couple people I couldn’t send them to bc they didn’t have it open!
you do realize that ghibli is an animation company in japan with a mostly japanese staff that creates their films about japanese characters set in japanese cities, places of japanese folklore and even feudal japan because woah would you have guessed that these people are JAPANESE?????
And yet people call racist when white people do the same thing. Not that Disney is entirely composed of white people, but still.
This is for all you ladies out there.
the struggle is real
I have a trans man story about this.
Since I’m pre-t I still have my period but since I’m socially out as trans I use men’s bathrooms. One time at the college the family bathroom was taken and so I went into the men’s room to do my business. I tried opening the little pad as quietly as I could manage, but the rustling and ripping sound still happened. I froze in silence because I didn’t know if the other guy in the men’s room heard it or not.
Then after a little bit of silence I hear…
"Who has a bag of chips?"
And in a panic I just whisper back to him “I’m not sharing.”
Then I hear a huff before he finished his business and left.
Literal best way to deal with that situation.
"Two other people took my picture before you, so I was already popular."
I know that some people said in the comments that this outfit was culturally appropriative, but just remember that you don’t know that someone isn’t a POC or biracial just by looking at them. Don’t assume other people’s races.
^ My immediate reaction was to be upset by this photo because, I’m sorry, I’m just so fucking sick of people stealing Asian outfits and making them cool or trendy. But then I thought that maybe she’s a mixed kid. If not, there’s a problem here, though.Hi. I’m actually Japanese. Most of us LIKE when people find beauty in our culture. As long as nobody is disrespecting us or making a mockery of us, then there isn’t a problem, and if you think there is, then it seems that you are in favor of cultural segregation and that is causing more harm than good.When I was in Japan, there were a lot of places where you could get done up in a kimono or the male equivalent and have your picture taken. No one cares.
Most Korean people I know are pretty delighted when foreigners wear hanbok, in a “oh, you are appreciating our culture! you look good in that” way. I have never actually heard or heard of people reacting negatively to non-Korean people wearing traditional Korean clothes, unless they were racist to begin with and would have objected to foreigners regardless of what they were wearing.
'Appropriation' is, I think, only appropriation when either it is done in a blatantly disrespectful way, or if the group whose clothes (etc) are being adopted is culturally marginalized to the degree where they themselves face discrimination when they wear those things.
Korean people, afaik, don’t give a fuck. When foreigners visit and wear our clothes, it’s in good fun by people who are usually appreciative of the aesthetic qualities of what they’re donning, and also because we ourselves have never faced discrimination for our nationality or traditional dress.
uhhh, basically, intent matters, context matters, people within the same community often have radically different ideas of what’s okay. But you know, I think the only Koreans I know who’d potentially care are the American-raised ones on liberal, activisty college campuses who are extremely well versed in the liberal, activisty language and rulebook.
I also think it makes a difference in that the clothing is, you know, the actual thing and not some vaguely exotic knock-off like most people do with native american clothing. Like this is a legit, actual Kimono. There’s nothing really in the culture OF kimono that has rules about who wears this sort of thing when. Like…kimono literally means “thing you wear”. -shrug-
Bolded some of the things that stood out the most to me.
I feel like this is important.
How about everyone just wears what they like to wear and everyone else leaves them the fuck alone about it?
THE SLASH BRINGING
FLASH STRINGING RINGING
THE HASH SLINGING SLASHER
i’m re-blogging this…
Since people on here have a major problem differentiating between curious interrogative statements about a situation and actual victim blaming I made a thing.
But don’t a lot of these questions imply that the victim is at least partially to blame for the rape? Because why else would it be relevant what they were wearing? Who cares what someone’s reason for being out at a certain time was? Assault happens during they day too, and also regardless of what people are wearing. I don’t see the relevance of the answers to these particular questions.
Think with logic, not feels.
These interrogative questions are all questions that the police would ask you when filing a report. Do you know why? No, not because “patriarchy”. It’s because investigators and detectives are obligated to attempt to find out both sides of the story and if they add up. “But who would lie about rape?” one might ask. Unfortunately, many, many people. And so as a precaution, and to gather more accurate details, the “victim” and “accused” are both asked similar questions in hopes of getting two completely matching stories that line up with the evidence found.
No, the questions dont imply the victim is to blame. For example:
"Alright, now I’m going to ask you a few questions about the events of that particular day. I want you to try and remember as best you can what happened. Do you understand?"
"Did you consume alcohol before the sexual assault?"
"No, I didn’t."
(This is many times a question to make sure the victim would be able to have an accurate recollection of what happened. The same would be asked to the accused.)
"What were you wearing at the time of the assault?"
"A thick black sweater, blue jeans and an overcoat. It was cold that day."
(Usually questions about details are asked, like I stated previously, to make sure details line up. This means what both parties wore and what they looked like. They’ll usually ask you waht the accused wore too. And ask the accused both questions. We all want to make sure some innocent person wasn’t dragged arrested.)
"Why were you out alone so late at night?"
"I was walking to a friend’s house. She lives a block away so I thought I’d be fine if I hurried."
(Obviously they have to ask backstory. They want the whole story so in court there’s no weird wild-card pulled. Casually forgetting to tell investigators important details is never seen in a good light.)
"You were well aquainted with the man who sexually assaulted you?"
"Not really. He went to my high school but we weren’t friends or anything then."
(Again, more details. Many women get raped by men they know, and its terrible. But some falsely accuse to try and trap men they know and that’s terrible also. Its good to gather all the details.)
And of course the last question would be to tell in detail what happened.
Most times you’ll be repeating this story again and again and again and again and someone will be noting what you say. A consistant story is often reguarded as trustwothy, especially if it matches up with the evidence. But most people can not keep a straight story if they’re asked multiple invasive detailed questions and they’re lying.
People lie to the police all the time. About murder. About drugs. About rape. About everything. So please dont try to make it seem like they’re accusing the victim of lying right off the bat. Because they ask the same questions to the accused.
I CANT BELIEVE THIS JUST SHOWED UP ON MY DASH
I have waited so long for this.
I have waited my entire fucking life for this audiopost
I got it! I got the pic of a lifetime!
I can just imagine Link fighting Ganondorf and being like “Hold on, hold on, lemme just get a selfie first before I kill you.”
