I-grew-out-of-it

anonymous asked:

does phil dye his hair? i had just thought that his hair grew out to be black

phil’s natural hair color is mousy brown but he’s been dyeing it black for ages and he always makes sure it looks sharp ! he wouldn’t be caught dead with roots

just accept the reality that your fave is never going to have a redemption arc as perfectly written as prince zuko’s

Hey, yeah, please remember that Kankri’s point as a character is not making fun of triggers or earnest, caring people, but is instead a parody of the self indulgent martyr complex (to contrast his life as the signless on Alternia).

He’s a parody of the concern trolls who use SJ methodology and terminology to bully people, and in the process, get off on feeling superior. In actuality he has a very poor understanding of what he’s talking about and very limited understanding that he’s talking over the people he claims to stick up for and ally himself with (porrim, mituna, etc.), not a joke aimed at making fun of very real caring and empathy.

the whole point of him is that he is supposed to contrast the “real sjw” he was as The Signless. It also plays in with the repeating pattern of Seers getting in too deep in their vices and losing their way, but unlike Terzi and Rose, Kankri has stagnated (as is much of the point of the dancestors in the dream bubbles) and cannot dig out of his Darkest Hour vice, he’s stuck too deep in it.

Kankri is the parody of “Doing it wrong”, while his counterpart on Alternia is the example of “doing it right”

remember that he has the personality type to want to care (he’s a vantas), but he’s spoiled, sheltered, naive and (given the culture of beforus), he’s had special treatment all his life and so DOES think he’s better than everyone. Getting into the social justice movement with those other traits was a disaster waiting to happen.

I’m seeing a lot of the  Lexi, 19 posts and I have a few things to add to them:

  • Don’t attack her for her looks. That has nothing to do with her beliefs. Trash her terrible opinions all you want, but don’t bring this down to a fight about how she looks.
  • Her shirt is in very poor taste, Fall Out Boy or not. The dream catcher is a sacred thing to us Natives, but I know the shirt options at Hot Topic is limited so yeah. (there are other options btw for shirts)
  • Fall Out Boy has ALWAYS sided with the protesters. They are pro-protest. 
  • Fall Out Boy is very open in it’s thinking (protesting, lgbtq+ rights, human rights) (ex. 20 Dollar Nosebleed, ending of the Uma Thurman video, You’re Crashing But You’re No Wave, a glance at Patrick’s twitter or Pete’s twitter most of the time)
  • Pete Wentz is bi-racial (his mother is Jamaican)
  • Patrick Stump (and I’m sure the rest of FOB as well) do NOT support the Ferguson police at all. Patrick at least has stated his opinion on them on his twitter.
  • Fall Out Boy would absolutely not support the use of them to help get this girl popular nor would they support her beliefs.

Just had to point out a few things. Basically, don’t bring this whole thing down to an argument on how “ugly” this girl looks, when there are a lot more issues to be discussing here. Her looks should not even be mentioned when there are several different things to point out here.

An Open Letter to Hillary

I was eight years old when you became the First Lady. I remember that I liked your hair, and your headbands, and how pretty and young you seemed, standing with your charming husband, waving at the crowd.

There were jokes about you in my small town. You were too powerful, too bold, too attached to your maiden name. You made people nervous. In my house, though, you were admired. My father called you “Mrs. Clinton,” and we were proud to see you in the White House.

And then when I was older, following politics on my own, you were in the Senate. All the people who had said you were too smart, too pushy, too much, to be a First Lady, had to see you succeed all on your own. I wasn’t from New York, but it still felt, a little, like you represented me.

I was so happy when Obama appointed you Secretary of State. I canvassed for him in 2008, as charmed and energized by him as everyone else, but I wished that it hadn’t had to be at the expense of your own campaign. Seeing you as Secretary was a balm, and you seemed to thrive. Do you remember when that picture became famous, the photo of you texting on Air Force One? God, I loved it. You had arrived. You looked like the most powerful woman in the world, like all of that responsibility rested easy on your shoulders. You were a badass.

As I watched you this fall, debating against a man who made a mockery of democracy, I took comfort in the way you handled yourself. You looked like a president, for all that we’d never had one who looked like you before.

I didn’t believe you could lose this thing, Hillary. When I cast my ballot for you, it felt momentous. It felt like it meant something. And it did. It did.

That’s what I want you to know. I can’t imagine how it felt when you realized that somehow, for reasons that hurt my heart so deeply I can barely breathe, Trump was going to win. But I want you to know that you did not fail. America failed you, but you did not fail.

Because you know what? I’ve grown up with you. Your very presence in the world has changed the parameters of mine. I grew up watching you fight your way through Washington, and every step you took was also a step for me, and for every other woman in this country.

So thank you, Hillary, for the work you have done and will continue to do. I’m sorry you won’t be my president, but I hope you realize that you’ve been so many other things to so very many women.
