reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother
one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.
i find it interesting how a lot of tumblr chooses to ignore the fact that benedict cumberbatch is an award winning, widely respected, and incredibly talented actor, simply because another part of tumblr worships him too much
he is also racist sexist classist and ugly
Yeah but statistically speaking, so are you probably.
Donald Glover will be voicing Miles Morales as Spider-Man in the upcoming Disney XD series.
"The new season of Disney XD’s animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors will take Peter Parker through various parallel worlds, including one where he meets Miles Morales, his half-Hispanic, half-black counterpart, voiced by Glover. The season premieres Sunday (9 a.m. ET/PT), and the "Spider-Verse" arc of episodes airs next year."

That is… unfortunate.
Gofundme is a valuable tool for people trying to raise money. They have disabled comments on the page. They are technically incapable of removing the page entirely because it is not actually promoting hate. The people behind it are gaming gofundme’s system, and punishing them for that is as childish as it is stupid. I am appalled, but not surprised at the money it has collected, but pulling support from a website that is doing everything they are allowed to do to stop the hate coming from the campaign only makes things worse. please actually think about things before you start spreading this shit in the future.
Oh yeah, and if you haven’t been paying attention then you should know that he isn’t even fucking anti-choice. So keep crying about how stealing from a fucking artist makes you a better person because politics. You’re still an actual fucking child.
Right, which is why you don’t fucking play his games if it’s that big of a deal to you.
You wanna boycott? Then boycott! But fucking stealing from an independant artist is goddamn deplorable. What is the point of even having morals if you aren’t willing to not play a fucking video game for them!? That isn’t taking a stand, it’s being an entitled child looking for an excuse to get what you want without giving anything in return.
Also Scott Cawthon didn’t make outlast. And I haven’t played the Walking dead season 2 yet, but your credibility is kinda shot at this point so it’s somewhat moot.
Try harder next time.
"My politics are really important to me, but of course I’m not going to just avoid this game when it is so much easier to fucking steal from an indie dev AND get what I want"
Grow the fuck up.
hey, just an fyi, the creator of five nights at freddy’s is extremely anti choice and even made a pro life video game called The Desolate Hope that’s also on steam.
if you want to play five nights, please torrent it. don’t give him any money.
Please rip off this indie dev so you can consume/enjoy his art without giving him any money because I disagree with him politically and that means he deserves nothing for his creation.
my thoughts at 6 am: “I wonder if any alchemists in the fma universe ever tried to transmute themselves into their fursona”
Autopsy report showed that mike brown had no drugs in his system and the store owners said that there was no robbery so what the fuck else do you racist ass whites want
None of that matters.
Because even if Mike Brown was flying high on crystal meth after robbing the national trust, that STILL doesn’t justify executing a child who was surrendering to the police. The media and the Ferguson PD are trying to comb through his character because they know people will get caught up trying to figure out what kind of person this boy was.
Do not play their game. A racist cop used his position of power to murder a black kid. That is all that matters. Don’t get distracted arguing about what kind of boy he was. That won’t change the reality.
The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he’ll reasonably think that his job isn’t simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.
If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they’re working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy. And because of correlations, rooted in historical injustice, between crime and income and income and race, the enemy population will consist largely of people of color, and especially of black men. Throughout the country, police officers are capturing, imprisoning, and killing black males at a ridiculous clip, waging a very literal war on people like Michael Brown."
I am absolutely sick and tired of the assertion that the human mind is not capable of deliberate malicious action unless its abilities are compromised.
Really? That’s interesting. Because I am sick and tired of the assertion that mental illness means that one’s mental abilities are compromised.
ok so anahita just helped me understand something that i didn’t know before so thank u for that and i’m posting it cause it’s important!
This is also very wrong.
We have a term that we use to describe the racism experienced by poc. That term is “institutionalized racism”. This is important, because it also reminds people that the racism occurs at a systemic level, as opposed to just a personal one. This means that a poc can go their entire life without meeting a single racist person and still suffer from and experience racism. It also means that personal education is not enough to dismantle the oppression that poc experience, we must also change policies and laws and our social institutions.
Now I’ve seen this argument a couple of times, and it’s always left a bad taste in my mouth. White people CAN experience racism. They can meet racist people. They CANNOT experience institutionalized racism. They cannot be the victims of societal institutions that work to oppress them. Literally nothing is gained by dropping the “institutionalized” from the phrase, all it does is confuse and anger people and get them to argue over shit they’d most likely agree on otherwise.
So please stop spreading misinformation. I know that that isn’t your intention, but it’s what you are effectively doing, and it isn’t helping.
Y’all can understand why the mutants in x-men hate the humans but can’t get why black people hate whites
You mean the bad guys in the X-Men? Are you literally comparing black people to the brotherhood of evil mutants? Because that is the funniest shit I’ve heard in months.
