I’m attacking directly with my Sonic Duck! I’m real sorry about this, Jim-Jam, but it looks like you’re on your way to the Shadow Realm!

a few days ago I sat in a field and did some watercolour studies and discovered that I actually really enjoy watercolour.

I feel like I keep rediscovering this though like I’ll stop using watercolour for a long time and then pick it up again and be like OH YEAH I like using watercolour

People of color, women, and gays — who now have greater access to the centers of influence than ever before — are under pressure to be well-behaved when talking about their struggles. There is an expectation that we can talk about sins but no one must be identified as a sinner: newspapers love to describe words or deeds as “racially charged” even in those cases when it would be more honest to say “racist”; we agree that there is rampant misogyny, but misogynists are nowhere to be found; homophobia is a problem but no one is homophobic. One cumulative effect of this policed language is that when someone dares to point out something as obvious as white privilege, it is seen as unduly provocative. Marginalized voices in America have fewer and fewer avenues to speak plainly about what they suffer; the effect of this enforced civility is that those voices are falsified or blocked entirely from the discourse.

what you said was very sweet and means a lot to me but i am incapable of properly responding in any way besides “thank you so much aaaah” because i do not know how to accurately express the exact level of my gratitude to where you completely understand how much what you said meant to me without me getting even more emotional and looking like a fucking nerd: an autobiography

if there is one thing radicals/progressives/liberals have failed to get right in the new age

its the notion of boycotts

you wanna know why the bus boycotts of the civil rights movement were so successful?

because an alternative black run transportation system was created for those who couldn’t walk to work or whatever they had to go

they didn’t just tell people “oh the bus enforces racist policies so don’t take it and FUCK if you can’t get to work on time or where you need to be!” 

they said “hey you’re paying to get on the bus and not even being given a seat let alone being ejected if a white passenger needs your seat. here’s a potentially better alternative where you pay to sit down and get to where you need to go” 

all this “boycott Target, Walmart, Monsanto owned companies” comes from a notion of boycott located in the politic of privileged white people

and that’s why they are largely unsuccessful

its why Obama just gave Monsanto the green light to commit even more fuckery to your food

its the reason why cooperation are considered people

its the reason why Walmart is allowed to usurp safety and labor regulations in their factories, and underpay their American workers

because you say “don’t spend your money there” and that’s the end of the story 

you expect people to locate their survival in a politic of “abstaining from unethical choices”

and then from there those unethical choices are somehow supposed to magically disappear. when really only a small percentage of people are able to boycott so many things

there wouldn’t be a movement located around the “99%” if 99% of people could really afford to stop shopping at the unethical places and stop buying the unethical brands

good luck with your hocus pocus activist logic 

Building alternative institutions is something liberals can’t even imagine. That’s just going “too far.” One thing to oppose evil individual actions of corporations but alternatives, which is this case would have to be inherently not capitalist? Too threatening to their middle-class power.

how do you even go outside

what bugs me the most about these kinds of posts is that you people think that a single individual is bothered by ALL of these things

these are just things that make a very wide variety of people uncomfortable or scared. i feel like if you people knew that, then you wouldn’t be making jokes about it

then again, you are just making jokes about people getting scared at things you think aren’t scary, therefore making you seem like a snarky fucking douche who doesn’t know that people with disablities and autism have different ticks and fears than neurotypical people do, or that people just have phobias that shouldn’t be judged by you pieces of shit, so i guess i shouldn’t expect you people to stop being assholes
