Piece Now, Peace Later: An Anarchist Introduction to Firearms

[W]hy now of all times publish a beginners’ manual on firearms? From the vantage point of our current plateau, it hardly feels like the time to start robbing banks, liberating prisoners, or attacking police stations. Few anarchist communities are so rooted in their neighborhood that community self-defense programs make much sense, and copwatch programs probably aren’t ready to arm themeslves any time soon either.
The reason for beginning to share firearm skills now is that the ability to conduct successful armed actions, even on a small-scale, does not emerge overnight […] In the same way that anarchists need to know carpentry and roofing and cooking skills long before they participated in radical relief efforts in New Orleans, so too will we need firearms training years in advance of the need or ability to use that training.

Nothing about MnM makes any sense. I have watched the SWAY video many times & when they greet each other they are like a married couple and she telling him to hang up his coat dinner is in 5 min. It does look like she is coming down with a cold and he looks tired. Yet, they both worked there tails off and performed a beautiful dance. What I also see is genuine love and affection that even being tired and sick cannot cover. It's in there they just need to flip the switch!

I agree…

I do not believe in pansexuality. It’s just another way to be biphobic and shame bisexuals who don’t feel like being special snowflakes, because otherwise it does not make any sense.

“Attraction to all genders”? There are two genders - male and female and a combination/lack thereof. This however does not equate into one’s physical body. There are only two sexes - male and female. There are a rare minority of intersexxed individuals but they are still mostly either male or female (like a woman with testicles instead of ovaries, although they are generally on the side of her still). Ergo any differences between that person or this person for a bisexual is a preference. Even if a bisexual is not necessarily attracted to a trans or non-binary individual that does not make said trans or non-binary person suddenly an entirely different sex that doesn’t fit into “male or female” to some degree.

do you ever feel like you could just sit somewhere quiet for hours with just your earphones plugged in and listen to bts’ more mellow songs.

cause i just did.for over 3 hours.let me tell you it felt surreal as if i had a lucid dream.listening to their softer songs and covers makes me feel so accomplished(does that even make sense?) yet sad and hollow at the same time.

Yes, and some of these people study creative writing which lol, disappoint. Like, guys, does it make any sense to have a chronically ill man with self-loathing issues that lead him to distance himself from loved ones be forced/coerced/manipulated/blah blah blah into a relationship he doesn't want until he died? THAT WOULD BE AWFUL WRITING AND THANK GOD IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. Instead we got Remus learning to get over that toxic message and loving himself and letting Tonks love him and being happy.

It would be terrible writing and so awful to even consider doing to a character! Plus, Remus is one of JKR’s favorite characters, I’M SO SURE she let him silently suffer in a terrible relationship. 

I’m just astounded that there are STILL people complaining about these things using these kinds of ridiculous arguments.  I mean, I used to see them a lot when I went on a lot of the Potter forums (do people still do that? I don’t even know…). But I learned to stay away from the HP tags here on Tumblr, and I haven’t see TOO much of this garbage since the Remus Lupin Biography so I think I’ve been under the impression that things have gotten better but I guess not.

Down By The River In The Park

A.N: I changed it up a bit I couldn’t help myself oops (it’s still cute tho dw)

There are these two kids, down by the river in the park.

It’s dangerous for them to be there, he knows that from his own experience, and he’s considered telling his parents every day that he’s seen them playing there. But then he’d have to explain why he was watching some two small kids playing in a park, and he thinks that he’d rather not.

u kno how when ur like almost asleep and your brain starts thinking thoughts that make no sense but at the time you feel like a genius yeah well last night my brain was like “omg u idiot you probably don’t even have any mental illness or anything stop lying to yourself, all your problems are in your head” and i. i don’t even know what to say to myself anymore tbh.

“In Chaos Magic, beliefs are not seen as ends in themselves, but as tools for creating desired effects. To fully realize this is to face a terrible freedom in which nothing is true and everything is permitted, which is to say that everything is possible, there are no certainties, and the consequences can be ghastly. Laughter seems to be the only defense against the realization that one does not even have a real self.

The purpose of Chaos rituals is to create beliefs by acting as though such beliefs were true. In Chaos Rituals you fake it till you make it, to obtain the power that a belief can provide. Afterward, if you have any sense, you will laugh it off and seek the requisite beliefs for whatever you want to do next, as Chaos moves you.”

seeing brown skinned video models in music videos i watched growing up was a really weird negotiation of understandings because i wanted to see more of them, i wanted to see them represented, i wanted them to seem loved and admired but i was like “this is misogyny in action???” like all the women were being dehumanized to some extent but i was like “why do they only want to dehumanize light skinned girls” does anyone know what i’m talking about… like why do they only wanna use light skinned girls as props even though none of them should be used like that but i wanted to see myself.. represented even though it’s weird representation. idk if that makes any sense.
