Indiana Jones. Great character, hates Nazis. Punches and kills his way through them. Still loved by all.
Everyone loves Batman! Doesn’t like Nazis.
Wonder Woman, showing people how it’s done.
Even the villains don’t tolerate Nazis!
Like, the Joker is seen as one of the most notorious villains in the DC-verse, and he just is about to beat the shit out of the Red Skull.
And just the sheer amount of times Captain America, literally a character to signify the freedom of the US of fucking A, has punched Nazis is bordering the line of excessive.
So all of this media ranging from different decades and companies have all endorsed Nazi punching. However, as soon as this happens:
Everyone loses their shit! “Violence begets violence!” “That isn’t the way to do it” “How dare he attack that man!” “Don’t put out fire with fire!” “You’re just as bad as them if you’re violent!”
But here’s the thing. It interrupts their platform. It shows that they are not invincible. It shows that they are not protected. It shows that they are going to be held accountable for their spouts of hate disguised as freedom of speech. It shows that there are consequences for their words.
I’m not saying that I’m going to seek out Nazis just to punch them, but I’m not going to stop anyone who’s doing it either.
Does art imitate life or does life imitate art? Either way, we should be punching more Nazis.
phil won the bonca all by himself, he worked so hard for it, for more than a decade he’s been doing youtube and he deserves everything he has. dan has always been the more popular one out of the two, but when finally the limelight is on phil and phil alone…
phil drags dan up onto the stage as well, because they’ve done so much together. even though he absolutely didn’t have to, he stil did it.
okay so on a nostalgic whim i recently made a neopets account to see what just what has happened in the decade that i have been away
there’s a lot, A LOT i have to say about this site after a few days of play, but the most surreal thing is how things have basically not changed at all in that decade. the site runs like shit because the optimization is terrible, for one, but the most striking & surreal thing is that the site’s art is updated in some places but not others
like you have areas like tyrannia that look like this
and then you have meridell that still looks exactly like it did over a decade ago and i’m losing my fucking shit
Today is the birthday of Fred Korematsu, a Japanese American who challenged the racist executive order that sent Japanese Americans to internment camps. Even though he fought all the way to the Supreme Court, he lost. His conviction was overturned decades later, and January 30th is recognized in Virginia and California as Fred Korematsu Day.
I’ll be posting new, different stories on my personal blog, please be sure to follow @sixpenceeeblog
There was no love at first sight, no stomach fluttering feeling of “This is the one!”, just the realization that this was the best my budget could get me. My realtor, already frustrated with how many times I’d said no to other places, watched anxiously over my shoulder as I signed the papers, as if she was afraid I’d back out at the last minute, and just like that, I was the less-than-proud owner of a decades old house and all the issues that came with it.
Still, I told myself as I was handed the keys, it was better than continuing to live with my all too recent ex-husband.
“you can’t be sick and tired all the time lol that’s literally not possible” buddy pal do I have news for you….chronic illness doesn’t take breaks…..not on weekends, not on holidays, not when there’s an emergency….friend I’m sick every single second and I have been for a decade so yeah I’m tired literally all the time….that’s how the “chronic” part of chronic illness works
Level 0 (established fact):
DNC emails were leaked due to Podesta falling for a phishing scheme. The people involved appear to be of Russian origin. The leaked emails made Clinton look bad and are believed to have contributed to her unpopularity.
Level 1 :
The Russian government was aware of the email hack.
Level 2 :
The Russian government ordered the hack.
Level 3 :
The Russian government ordered the hack because it wanted to influence the outcome of the election and elect Trump.
Russia hacked the election to destroy democracy by literally rigging the election and recreate the plot of the Manchurian Candidate
Russia hatched this scheme over a decade ago and Manning, Snowden, Wikileaks were all part of a conspiracy to make people distrust the CIA when Russia made its move to rig the 2016 election and take over the world
We live in a simulated reality created by the Russian government
¿Quién es Sombra? A character analysis (Overwatch)
So I’ve been watching the reveal of Sombra over and over again (as ya do), and I couldn’t help but notice some details that say a lot about her personality, worldview, and just how fucked up of a character she is. In the brief time we’ve seen her, Blizzard has already developed her into one of the most fleshed-out characters in all of Overwatch. Piecing together details from her short and her backstory video, we can begin to get a fairly clear picture of how she thinks. And needless to say, it’s very interesting, fucked up, and in a way, kind of tragic.
More below the cut. It’s a really long post, so be warned.
Yuri On Ice and Toxic Masculinity (or Lack Thereof)
fancyass title but I just feel that it’s so obvious yuri on ice was written and directed by two brilliant, brilliant women?? like I was not surprised AT ALL to learn that kubo was a woman even though she used to produce work under a male pseudonym, because the content was so clearly NOT the kind of toxic, objectifying material that’s produced when men think they know what the audience wants to see but is actually just projecting their own stereotypes and fantasies
there’s fanservice in yuri on ice, no shit (ep 1 victor in the onsen is a screaming hint already) but it’s never gratituous or objectifying. the director and writer know what the audience would like to see but don’t put their own fantasies over artistic integrity. and there’s no toxicity in victuuri’s relationship, even though it would have been SO EASY to fall back on usual yaoi tropes of seme/uke, and there’s already a clear power imbalance at the start where victor is presented as being in control while yuuri doesn’t have his shit together. What I love about YOI is that instead of taking that easy way out and running with it, stretching the power imbalance even further, they made the effort to go the EXACT OPPOSITE WAY and subvert those tropes so that victuuri evolves to become a healthy and loving relationship between equals. There’s no sense of who’s ‘the man’ in the relationship, or who’s wearing the pants (lbr, neither of them). yuuri becomes a seductive power on ice and gradually more assertive and open off ice, and victor nikiforov isn’t some mysterious, unreachable idol, he’s a fool in love and happier than he’s ever been in his life.
idk, just seeing this is so amazing when it’s so rare to see pairings or even general stories in both eastern and western entertainment that are healthy and good and pure and still tell a fantastic story, and on top of this it’s a QUEER relationship which comes with even more trappings and stereotypes
so I really applaud kubo and yamamoto for everything they achieved, for the vision they had, and for the love that they poured into this project, for never taking the easy way out
and this is something women creators seem to have more in hand. I know it’s not always the case but I’ve noticed that the 'male gaze’ camera and its literary/comic equivalent happens less with women creators because surprise surprise no one wants to be objectified like that, especially women!!! and something specific to yoi but also a more of a trend among women creators than male creators is that the relationship is…deeper? it’s not just about the sexual tension but also all the other moments in between, not necessarily romantic but always emphasising respect and communication and trust, and learning to live with each other’s flaws, which is a much more realistic depiction of actual relationships
tl; dr basically women creators do amazing things and we should put them in charge more often
honestly,,, i’m so tired of seeing ppl reblog my gif sets and just shit talking kate for reasons that are stupid af and imma tell you why
“kate mckinnon is transphobic” – kate did a shitty ass sketch show EIGHT-TEN YEARS AGO that was transphobic as hell, yes. i recognize that, we all get that. HOWEVER, don’t act like there wasn’t a huge difference between the conversations about trans now than there was then, don’t act like you can’t grow and become educated in months let alone ten fucking years. she hasn’t done that show in years??? she’s literally NEVER wanted to hurt people with her comedy??? she stated in an interview that she never wants anyone to take something she says and be offended by it when she never means to offend which is why she doesn’t have social media. she genuinely cares about people, so fuck you for holding something she did a decade ago over her when y’all sure as hell werent the same person you were ten years ago.
“kate mckinnon believes in gold star lesbians” – kate was asked in an interview if she was gay. she stated “i am 100% les. i have never seen a human penis in my life.” two separate statements. quit reaching so far to act like she was stating you can’t be a lesbian if you’ve seen a dick. even if she HAD meant that, which i HIGHLY doubt she did, it was almost a decade ago again. quit acting like you can’t change in a decade.
“kate mckinnon didn’t defend leslie during all the twitter shit” – kate doesn’t have social media, which is where all that shit happened. what was she supposed to do? tweet about it on the twitter she didn’t have? yanno what she did since they are BEST FRIENDS? texted her. called her. yanno, visited her to make sure she’s alright. but yeah fuck her for not tweeting about it??? when she don’t have a twitter?? k.
“kate mckinnon had trump host snl” – kate is under a contract as an actress, she doesn’t choose who hosts. the producers do lmao. do you have a brain at all?
y’all fucking stupid bc y’all try to find small reasons to hate every fucking one when y’all 100x more problematic than a lot of ppl. i honestly, 100% hope to god at some point someone finds something you said 10+ years ago and holds you accountable for it today like y’all do to kate and every other celebrity. it’s a form of dehumanization and it needs to stop bc it’s fucking tiring.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is the BEST performer of this decade, the century, and of all time. Time after time she gives us EXCEPTIONAL performances with IMMACULATE vocals. All the haters can DEAL WITH THAT
People assumed the collapse of Overwatch happened 20-ish years ago in-story because the Reaper bio said he’d been reaping for decades and all the art of the characters at various medal ceremonies and the like had Jack and Gabe looking like young dudes. Word of Michael Chu or whoever was up at the top was that Overwatch had only fallen about five years ago in the timeline, the art had the older generation of Overwatch heroes looking too young, and that the “decades of Reaper” was an intentional plot twist. People got angry because they seemed to have abandoned the idea of making a comic to tell the story in favour of dispensing it through vague cryptic tweets.
