The Problem With Rupi Kaur's Poetry
The milk and honey author's use of unspecified collective trauma in her quest to depict the quintessential South Asian female experience feels disingenuous.
By Chiara Giovanni

This is a really well written look into Rupi Kaur and her place in the literary world, how she markets herself to different audiences, and how she aims to present an image of South Asian women. I highly recommend people with opinions of her poetry - whether positive or negative - read this. 

What Overwatch Heroes Say When They Look Out The Telescope On Horizon Lunar Colony

This might be old news for everybody but there’s a telescope in the attack spawn room of Horizon Lunar Colony and the heroes have special voice lines when they look through it. I’ve decided to list them all because I find them very interesting, so without further ado…

Doomfist: “Is that all?” OR “It’s not much, and yet so much blood has been spilt over it.”

Genji: “I will never look at tskumi the same way!”

McCree: “Really gives you a perspective on the world down there, what it’s all about…bah, I need a drink.”

Pharah: “It all looks so peaceful from up here.”

Reaper: “The view’s not bad.”

Soldier: 76: “Earth, I’ve been through a lot for you. Hope you appreciate it.”

Sombra: “That’s something you don’t see every day!”

Tracer: “Wow! I think I understand what Winston felt like now, looking at Earth from here.”

Bastion: *amazed beeps*

Hanzo: “The concerns of my life seem so distant from up here.”

Junkrat: “It really makes you wonder, don’t you think?” OR “I think I can see my trailer down there!”

Mei: “Our world is worth fighting for!”

Torbjörn: “Well, the view’s not bad.”

Widowmaker: “Ha, a bit more powerful than my scope.”

D.Va: “Wow, the view is amazing!”

Orisa: “I wish Efi could be here…perhaps someday.” OR “Recording: Efi will want to see this!”

Reinhardt: “It all looks so small from up here!”

Roadhog: “Well…okay, then!”

Winston: “The first day or so we all pointed to our countries, the third or fourth day we were pointing to our continents, by the fifth day, we were aware of only one Earth.”

Zarya: “ ‘Облетев Землю в корабле-спутнике, я увидел, как прекрасна наша планета. Люди, будем хранить и преумножать эту красоту, а не разрушать её!’ ” Yuri Gagarin quote meaning: “ ‘Orbiting Earth in the spaceship, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!’ ”

Ana: “It’s not bad, but it’s also not Hawaii.”

Lúcio: “I never thought I’d see the world like this!”

Mercy: “It all seems so peaceful from up here!”

Symmetra: “*sigh* From here it looks to be so orderly and peaceful.”

Zenyatta: “The damage doesn’t look as bad from up here.”
