I really hate to do this but my family is struggling very much after the loss of my job and due to medical problems my mom is suffering. We have bills piling up and we are at risk of losing Electricity, Water, Internet, and our phones. We are barely scraping by with money and each month we get further into debt. I’m asking for some money to take the load off for the next couple of months. Please share if you can and I appreciate any and all support, thank you.

For those of you who may not want to use gofundme to help me out you can directly send me money to my paypal which is rilesmorg@gmail.com. This will avoid the fees that gofundme takes out and allow me to use funds immediately

If I could rise up and applaud I would. THIS! fucking THIS.

You know what bullied people do? they take it out on themselves. They go home and hang themselves, they don’t pick up a gun and think “i’ll show them!”, that’s anger, entitlement, resentment. That’s not bullying doing it, that’s being a fucking asshole.

the last shooting? He killed that girl because she fucking dumped him. How, just HOW is that not fucking entitlement right there?

“White men from prosperous families grow up with the expectation that our voices will be heard. We expect politicians and professors to listen to us and respond to our concerns. We expect public solutions to our problems. And when we’re hurting, the discrepancy between what we’ve been led to believe is our birthright and what we feel we’re receiving in terms of attention can be bewildering and infuriating. Every killer makes his pain another’s problem. But only those who’ve marinated in privilege can conclude that their private pain is the entire world’s problem with which to deal. This is why, while men of all races and classes murder their intimate partners, it is privileged young white dudes who are by far the likeliest to shoot up schools and movie theaters.”

she’s right. Open-toed shoes are against lab safety regulations.

you look me in the eye and tell me shuri’s lab doesn’t have a low-grade stasis field that stops dropped objects 8 inches above the floor

you look me in the eye and tell me that’d make shuri be careless about the sacred, consecrated rites of lab safety.

you are correct and i was a fool

The idea that racism will die out with the white baby boomers is a myth perpetuated by white millennials who do not want to take action and responsibility for calling out racism in their own generation. White millennials are not inherently less racist than white baby boomers and racism does not disappear with a generation. Racism is a construct that exists in all aspects of society, from politics to economics to social norms and activities. It can only be eradicated with constant and fervent dismantling of these powerful constructs in place and new generations must keep working at it. I’ve heard too many fellow white people say that when all these ‘racist old people’ die off then we’ll be fine but we all know that racism is not limited to old white people and that the alt-right is littered with white millennials. Check your friends and family on bigoted and racist remarks. Be a good ally. Sitting back for old people to die is not good allyship and you’ll soon see that they are not the only racists in power.

In short: Racism will not die on it’s own… we have to actively kill it. 

White people have probably been saying “racism will die out with the old whites” since the 1600s. It’s a feel good trope for white people; a comforting lie that conveniently takes the responsibility of ending racism off the current generation and basically says, “the only real action against racism that today’s white youth need to take is just…wait…and instead do absolutely nothing

Baby Boomers were literally the civil rights/Vietnam War/sexual liberation era generation. Y’all who really think the world’s problems are going to go away when we all grow up cause we’re the Woque Generation™️ are on something. Get active. Do shit.

why does anyone in Gotham even bother doing crime like you KNOW the second you leave the bank with the money you just stole Bruce Wayne is gonna be chilling on a bench on the other side of the street in his bat fursuit like “hey bitch u better not be breaking the law”

because batman never bothered attacking the roots of social problems

you know what… you’re right call him out!!

Wayne Enterprises has a jobs program for those who are fresh out of prison.

He routinely takes major villains with mental health issues to an asylum where professionals are there to help.

Or do you just read the fight scenes?

WHAT THE HELL KIND OF BATMAN HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING?

Fake geeks, I swear to god…

The best part is that most of the lore, especially Batman: The Animated Series, gets to a point in Batman’s career when everyone asks the question of why someone would rob a bank in Gotham when they know that if they approached Batman, and coincidentally Bruce Wayne, they could get the help they needed.

That’s the whole point of Batman. Granted there have been modernized adaptations that paint him out to be nothing more than a growling, punching, antihero. But nobody ever said those adaptations were canon or even good. The original Batman comics, most of the newer comics, the Animated Series, the animated spinoffs, even the Arkham video games all operate under the lore that Batman does everything within his power to help as many villains as he can, even if it means going against cops, politicians, etc. That’s what originally made him the vigilante. He went against the social norms. He did everything that a hero shouldn’t do, not in a murderous way, but in a taking-sides way. Every other hero swoops in to save the corrupt politician from the criminal. Batman swoops in to save the criminal from the corrupt politician. 

I actually never thought about this. And I realized that unlike other heroes who just want to see their antagonist gone and really don’t care about nothing but killing them and stopping them, Batman wants to try and help them out. When people would normally push for a serial killer to be sentenced to death, a person could want that killer to be in rehabilitation. This makes me like Batman a lot more.

on calls to boycott the Bohemian Rhapsody movie

thebaconsandwichofregret:

acrossmyengines:

Based on a 90-second teaser trailer and a few assumptions, the calls have gone out that we should boycott Bohemian Rhapsody for queer erasure.

“The trailer doesn’t show any gay content, only het stuff!”
There’s a split-second shot of Freddie hugging his girlfriend at one point. There’s also multiple shots of him obviously flirting with guys. The contention that the trailer is queer erasure is mostly coming from cis gay (white) men mad that the movie seems to be depicting Freddie Mercury as bisexual and capable of loving women at all, but given how significant his relationship with Mary Austin was to his life, it would be a disservice to everyone to exclude it.

Also, the cast list includes several male characters listed as “Freddie’s Lover,” as well as Jim Hutton, his partner in his final years.

“They’ve said the movie is going to ignore the AIDS crisis!”
No. What’s been said is that the movie ends in 1985. Once this information was released, people immediately jumped to assume that because the movie wasn’t going to chronicle Freddie’s illness and death in detail, it was avoiding the subject entirely. But the AIDS crisis was in full swing in ‘85, and Freddie of all people was extremely aware of it. The description of the trailer (the first teaser trailer!) even alludes to it.

It’s a fair point that they haven’t mentioned AIDS by name yet, but also, the only materials they’ve released so far are some promo images and one teaser trailer.

In this context, for people wondering why the creative team or the remaining band members don’t come out to “put the matter to rest” by assuring us the film deals with AIDS, it might help to remember that the media has in the past been extremely tawdry and exploitative in its treatment of Freddie Mercury’s illness and death (have you not seen all the “HIS TRAGIC AIDS STORY!!!” videos floating around Youtube? Not read the biographies that linger in lurid, dubiously sympathetic detail?). It makes sense to me that if Brian May and Roger Taylor have a heavy hand in the making of the film (which they seem to), they’d ask for a more subtle approach.

Also, again: we have six months till the movie comes out and only one teaser trailer at this point. Be concerned if you feel the need, but it’s a little early to call for a boycott.

Do not tell people to shun queer content because you have decided, six months in advance with very little information, that it won’t be up to your standards when it comes out.

This film was made with the considerable support of Freddie’s friends and bandmates. Brian May is a dedicated curator of Freddie’s legacy and so yes it will most likely be an idealised version of him but his friends aren’t ashamed of his sexuality or of his illness.

its a shame ditherpunk never took off

What’s that?

pixel art but in 1-bit, i.e. only black or white pixels.  you create shading via dithering, or densities of black pixels vs white pixels, hence “dither punk.”

It’s lo-fi and retro in a very goth way
