please do not let ferguson die out like everything else big does. do not let this die out. do not let this continue on for three days and then everyone forget about it. do not let this happen.
queue this post up 3 days from now, a week from now, a month from now, a month from then. make sure even if you forget your blog will remember.
the fact i’m seeing reblogs slow down despite the fact there is still news breaking is concerning
it really irks my nerves when an oppressed person speaks out on an issue in really well worded, calm manner and one of the oppressing parties is like “well now THIS is how you do it!”
I am def here for people explaining issues and educating people. Do not get it twisted. However I am not here for this passive aggressive tone policing. The oppressed group has every right to be pissed off or just refuse to teach anything to any one if they choose. They have that right. They have the right to tell you to go fuck yourself or they could sit down and try to educate you, or something inbetween.
Stop trying to invalidate a person’s experiences and the emotions that stem from them.
Does anyone else remember playing music in Real One Player and just sitting there and watching this for like two hours
EVER has a right to touch you if you don’t want to be touched.
Not your husband. Not your fiance. Not your boyfriend. Not your partner. Not your friends. Not even your own family.
You are a person and your body is your own. And it’s a privilege if you allow someone to touch it.
A god damn privilege that can be snatched up and you don’t owe anyone a reason but that it’s your body and only YOUR body.
why arent more people talking about hong kong?
why arent more people talking about how there were clips on TV of armed police literally throwing unarmed students to the ground and dragging them across the floor??
why arent more people talking about how a bunch of websites and TV channels in HK have now been CENSORED, or are broadcasting movies like nothing’s happening??
why arent more people talking about the fact that police are using water cannons, batons, TEAR GAS AND PEPPER SPRAY, aimed specifically at the eyes, AGAINST STUDENT PROTESTORS IN A NONVIOLENT PROTEST???
PRETTY SOON INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET KILLED FOR STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES
WHY ARENT MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THIS????
here’s a link to an interview with a friend of mine from hong kong. (warning - one or more of the images is quite graphic)
i urge you to read this, and please PLEASE read up on the situation for yourselves.
Hydra was made to be a transparent duplicate of parts of the Third Reich, with roots in the Third Reich, as one of various sources that allowed Marvel to continue to write about the Third Reich long after it stopped being prime American propaganda content, and started being remembered with the weight of what happened during WWII.
If I shouldn’t need to explain to people why not to say “Hail Hitler,” then I shouldn’t need to explain to them why not to say “Hail Hydra.” I don’t care how cool you thought the Captain America movies were, or if you think its a cute and edgy fandom initiation code. It’s not funny, it’s not a joke, and if you have paid enough attention to be in the fandom that its relevant, you will know that there is no room for ambiguity. Hydra is a Nazi group.
And similar to that: I see the red-skull insignia of HYDRA used everywhere, as icons, sidebar-gifs etc. Do people realize that that was deeply inspired by/based on real life nazi symbolism and usage? just cut it off will you, don’t say ‘hail hydra’, don’t joke about it and please don’t use the red-skull, it’s not ‘just fandom’
The fact that people have to keep repeating this is a problem.
