I was born
and for that
I will always
I made a thing.
I love this
This thing is beautiful.
It kind of seems racist to define the lion king characters as a specific race?
Oh, please. Just stop. It’s like you didn’t even read.
When people come into a post about racism with their counterproductive thoughts on racism:
white people will always find a way, wont they?
I love when white people play that color scheme game tho. “THEY’RE GOLD LIKE THE LONG LOCKS OF THE WHITE CHEELDREN OF SWEDEN! IT MUST’VE BEEN MEANT FOR THEM TO BE WHITE!”
or they could be like
Admittedly, if there was one aspect of my appearance I’ll admit to being unhappy with, it’s the fact that for the life of me I am completely unable to grow a beard long enough to braid.
do you ever see a person you used to be friends with and you’re like “glad i got the fuck outta that one”
"And why the hell would Abrams and crew stick to Khan’s origin timeline, even though it makes zero sense, but also suddenly change him to a white dude? That’s cherry-picking the stupidest parts of canon and non-canon!
I don’t know. I think it’s nice that in this day and age, a white male can still be cast as an Indian played by a Mexican. White men really have come a long way!"
Quite apart from all this tho, and lawd there is a GREAT DEAL OF RACIST FUCKERY HERE… the script is stupid. Like, REALLY stupid. I am just here reading this thing and my eyes are going wider and wider with disbelief.
this is a real thing, they made a real energy drink called nae danger
lewis drinks this by the buttload
Nae Danger is the BEST fucking energy drink I’ve ever tasted!
Not the one pictured though, I’m not overly keen on it. The first flavour they released, blue raspberry. Amazing!
I bought 8 tins of it to take to Gemucon with me last month cause you can only get it up here in Scotland XD
Nae Danger is the shit though.
…And it’s only a quid!
AHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOD SO GOOD
A good lesson on why you should never assume that someone else’s opinion of the world should always match yours.
“I mean, according to my insurance company, this is an act of god, so….”
what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works
no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.
Perfect metaphor is perfect.
The musical Miss Saigon has been running for over 20 years, which means it’s lived longer than many Southeast Asian refugees gunned down by police brutality, violence, in poverty and with PTSD. Tickets are $125-$222 USD.
If you believe colonialism is the greatest love story of our time, how can we live in the same world?
Wait, don’t answer that.
The Mandarin, the dreadlocked Uruk-hai, the Indian savage, the Mexican illegal, the samurai who’s actually a Jap: they are the enemy, and we pay to see it. All the while Michelle Malkin agrees that immigrants are not as smart as whites, but what do you expect from the Asian who argued we should lock up Arabs like we did the Japanese. And the U.S. puts Assata on the Most Wanted list.
Nonetheless people line up to empty their pockets and listen to tragic staged Asians sing their song, the war that churned our people apart turned to a wet dream fantasy of Vietnamese written by two white Frenchman. How’s that colonialism working out for you. This is the world I helped bring a daughter into. Happy f—- Asian-Pacific Heritage Month."
Poet Bao Phi on the play Miss Saigon. Despite continual protests from the Asian American community, theater companies like Towne Theater in Columbia, South Carolina continue to perform the racist musical—and to add insult to injury, this production has an all-white cast. The show is opening during Asian Pacific American Heritage month.
“In the Twin Cities, the problem is not that we haven’t organized against it. The play has been here at least three times and we’ve organized against it, with different strategies each time. Each time, the white theater tells us they’re sorry and they want to be sensitive to the community. They create focus groups, then ignore the focus groups when they advise them not to bring Miss Saigon back.
“All the while, new generations of people of all races go to see this play despite all of our educational teach-ins, our counter-shows and protests, and it’s the one ‘learning experience’ they have about the Vietnam War and Vietnamese people. I was a teenager the first time we organized against it - I’m 38 now and i’m tired of it. We’re still going to organize against it but a lot of this crankiness is with my frustration that there seems to be little to no progress. White supremacy is a machine that keeps grinding, I guess.”
