There ain’t no party like an Ent party ’cause an Ent party lasts for weeks of deciding where to have the fucking party and then like 2 years of deciding who will bring what and then 75 years of introductions and “How you been” and then you can’t be at the party anymore because you died.
I’ve been reading up on body language and stuff trying to make my comics less stiff. I put my notes into reference sheet form so other people can use them. I actually took a while making this, so I hope you guys find it interesting!
Also, this font didn’t have apostrophes or quotes so a lot of things seem awkward!? Sorry about that.
This is the best thing.
Heads up, screenwriters, this should be in your resource bookmarks for the rest of your natural writing lives!
this is really cool and good for writers, artists, basically anyone who creates characters in some way.
Let’s talk about The Kumbayah Myth.
In the Kumbayah Myth, racism will just stop if everyone just started acting nice to each other, and the only reason we still have racism is that people are silly.
Part of the Kumbayah Myth is the erasure of history, violence and power. In this falsehood, either no one is really at fault, or, actually, EVERYONE is at fault, so everyone is equally bad. This actually exists only to make white people feel better and never have to change their behaviors.
Go look at Without Sanctuary and maybe read up on The Reconstruction and come back and tell me it’s all equal and IF ONLY Black people were nicer shit would have been different.
Now, let’s talk about this picture I linked. It says, “Love is Blind” and has a blind black woman and a blind Klansman walking across the street holding hands….
Well, even the symbolism fails, because:
a) The black woman is basically minding her own business
b) The blind Klansman DRESSED UP AS A KLANSMAN- even blind he still HATES PEOPLE.
c) AND WE’VE JUST EQUATED A BLACK WOMAN, by nature of simply BEING A BLACK WOMAN as equivalent to a murderous terrorist.
Oh. Ok. If only those damn Black women would stop being so Black, the KKK wouldn’t HAVE to lynch, murder and burn them in self defense.
You know, tit for tat, right?
But let’s keep going- the only reason, at least, we’d see this picture working is because HE DOESN’T KNOW SHE’S BLACK. Otherwise, he’d push her into traffic and claim, “I’m blind! I didn’t know what was happening!”
What the world needs is not more hugs. It needs you white people to stop killing people of color. It needs for you to stop defending murderers. It needs for you to stop equating dark skin as violent threat, and therefore, justifiable homicide in self defense. It needs for you to recognize that YOU, collectively, pull this shit, and no, it is not “equal”, there is no “reverse racism”.
Love is not blind. Hate is blind- it refuses to see what it does, it demands no one speak of it or say a thing. And it kills and conveniently forgets a moment later.
Then demands hugs and holding hands and singing kumbayah, and wonders why everyone is so mean to it.
joss whedon, noted feminist who fired charisma carpenter for daring to be pregnant
joss whedon, white cishet male who decides that he gets to define feminism and rebrand it to make it more appealing to himself, while also erasing the entire history of feminism and ignoring the existence of the term womanist
joss whedon, making a speech about feminism whose only mention of a female is to dismiss her entirely
joss whedon, deciding that the biggest problem with feminism is in its name and not its history of being racist, transphobic, and homophobic
joss whedon, lacking all self-awareness when twisting a brilliant junot diaz quote about poc representation to mean representation for white cis females
joss whedon, trying to equate sexism and racism while completely ignoring that woc exist and can experience both at the same time
joss whedon saying equality is important!!!!! but not casting a single asian person in his show grounded in the fusion of asian (primarily chinese) - western culture and also equating reavers (literally referring to them as the monsters of the story) with the apache
wait hold up, ignore all that, i should just be super grateful to joss “what is privilege and intersectionality?” whedon for having the courage to speak over women on a continuous basis
eta: now with links for all you asswipes who think i’m making this up solely to demonize your precious white cishet male hero (a lot of this shit is about his recent fucking terrible equality now speech)
eta 2: and now with bonus fuckups
Romeo can’t really be blamed for Ophelia’s death.
It’s a testament to “Veronica Mars” that the movie isn’t just an exercise in fan service and nostalgia for a television show long gone. Instead, it’s a sad, sharp statement on what happens when income inequality, police misconduct and racism compound each other, and how hard it is to win even limited change. (x)
I loved “a cop has been shot” so much
I like how it’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Thor: The Dark World” and then Iron Man is just like, fuck the bullshit, we’re just callin’ this thing “Iron Man 3”.
Because a secondary title would imply it’s also about something other than Iron Man. And we all know how well that would work out.
“Iron Man 3: Tony Stark”
Iron Man 3: The Tony Starkening.
Iron Man 3: Iron Man 3
like really as a white person i rly dont feel like anyone on this website hates me for it at all??
idk how people can register anger from oppressed groups of people as hatred bc that’s what white people are like known for??all we’ve done is kill people for land and fuck goats
tbh im peeved about that too and that’s why i refuse to shut down poc who are also angry about it:
because we did shitty shit and a lot us of now have the nerve to DENY it and systematically try to HIDE it and CONTINUE TO DO IT
what the fuck
Q:Should I rewatch Star Wars in order of release or in story order?
