dont wait until you know who you are

GUYS SO HIDDEN FIGURES WAS SO GREAT

NO WHITE PEOPLE TAKE THE SHINE FROM THE AMAZING BLACK PROTAGONISTS

in fact there’s a whole lot of “here is how people racist” and “here is how to ally without being a smug prick about it”

there is ALSO ALSO ALSO a lot of beautiful black men who are initially douchey but CLEARLY ALSO LOVE THEIR WOMEN AND WANT TO DO BETTER

Taraji P Henson is courted by FINE AS ALL HELL Mahershala Ali *STARS IN EYES* and you know those moments which are like IMAGINE YOUR OTP except THIS IS YOUR OTP YOU DONT HAVE TO IMAGINE IT and her daughters being all into the new man in her life and AAAAAAAAAAAAA IMAGINE YOUR OTP NO WAIT IT’S ALREADY ONSCREEN

buncha white characters have this complete thoughtlessness, this “that’s the way it is” until they are inconvenienced and then that’s how they go out of the way to make things better which is so utterly real, of course that’s how it goes

other buncha white characters who just hate being upstaged and their hostility is shown really subtly, like it’s clear they’re not even AWARE of how fucking racist they are

then there’s that John Glenn astronaut guy who’s like a complete ALL AMERICAN WHITE BREAD BOY and he has this looks-natural-is-it-really way of being an ally that’s just completely innocuous except it’s exceptional like yes good that’s a really awesome way of alleviating the AWKWARD in the room

Janelle Monae as the plucky wannabe-engineer

Octavia Spencer as the long-suffering but determined to help not just herself but EVERYONE in her department of human computers by getting ahead of the game learning computers

IT’S ALL AMAZING IT’S GREAT I WANNA TALK ABOUT IT AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE ALL THE DISCOURSE ON IT

When you sit down to write a poem, you really don’t know where you’re going. If you know where you’re going, the poem stinks, you probably already wrote it, and you’re imitating yourself. You have to follow where the poem leads. And it will surprise you. It will say things you didn’t expect to say. And you look at the poem and you realize, ‘That is truly what I felt.’ That is truly what I saw.

anonymous asked:

So i've been doubting my sexuality lately. I think i may have feelings for my best friend who is a girl (i am too) and i dont know what to do about it. I dont know if i should tell her because im scared that it might change our friendship and make things weird and also im not really sure. Maybe i am completely straight, i just dont know. Im attracted to guys but im beginning to think i may be attracted to girls as well

just don’t label urself its so stressful trying to see which category you fit in, just go w the flow if u wanna but abt this best friens thing, wait until u know for sure you like her and then say something abt it now u might be rejected and things might end up bad OR things might still b the same and she will be flattered but who knows follow ur heart

;__; IM ACTUALLY SITTING HERE CRYING HAPPILY

it’s pretty clear i dont check the tag v often because i like to wait until im ready to cry—BECAUSE I AM A CRYBABY AND WILL CRY WHEN OVERWHELMED WITH JOY—and i would really just. like to thank everyone who draws or writes or dubs or roleplays anything from liverpepper!! i ENCOURAGE IT SO MUCH because it makes me super happy, and nothing would make me happier than to shout at you how much i love enjoying this silly au with everybody!! thank you SO MUCH EVERYONE!!!!! you’re all amazing and i KNOW im slow with posts right now but!!! please know that i think you’re all the best and i hope you’re having a great day full of smiles and laughter, wherever you all are!!!! ♡♡♡

also, tell me how your day’s been going if you’d like!! the weather has been beautiful where i live so that makes me ssssuper happy :”) ive been having a hard time sleeping lately (insomnia has been kicking me in the ass!!!) but i feel so warm and happy rn that i dont even care that i’m tired!!!

okay so this person blocked me mid-debate so im just gonna keep going idk if she’ll see it or not but i feel the need to answer this if only for myself.


when i typed the last line “now go away, until you educate yourself properly.” i was parroting how you ended your first response to me, as a slight nudge on letting you know how condescending and annoying it is, but i guess you didn’t catch on so… o-kay then.

(also i dont care if u have a degree in political science… wait… wow never mind that actually explains a lot.)

“You have no idea what terrorism actually is. Are you gonna call the assholes who start fires and overturn cars because their sports team lost terrorists too?” kinda? idk i mean it’s not rly POLITICAL, but it’s trying to scare people with violence and damage to their property. sooo kinda yes. same principle.

“I’m not trying to insult him by calling him a Nazi, Breitbart is the bastion of the alt right, which is modern day Nazism. Milo works alongside them. The logic is crystal clear.”

okay. im gonna ask a question that really needs answering here: what does it take to be a Nazi in your eyes? if gay people can be Nazis, and Jews can be Nazis, and even freaking POC (POC do work at Breitbart), then wtf even ARE Nazis?! “The logic is crystal clear.”  yeah to YOU because you are apparently the all-enlightened-and-wise-one who knows who’s a Nazi and who isn’t.  if you can’t tell me what it means to be a modern day Nazi, then please stop being… whatever it is you’re being. (also racism is also tossed around about EVERYTHING so while you’re at it plz give me the concrete prerequisites for being that as well, all-knowing-one.)

“’m Jewish. I know fascism when I see it.“ okay look hon A: if Jewish people can own/mostly staff Breitbart, thus making them Nazis, then you being Jewish does nothing for this debate. B: no, you clearly don’t see facism when you see it because you’re supporting people who shut down a free speech talk with riots and violence.

“You are someone who clearly missed basic civics courses and wants to talk out of their ass.”  stay classy dear.

“Brietbart supports people who advocate racism and antisemitism. If you try and deny that, you are willfully ignorant and not worth my time. You enable modern fascism. Next time just keep your mouth shut.”  see above. also no thanks i will not keep my mouth shut. someone on here needs to debate with people like you in order to restore some sort of balance to the universe.

“I wish people defended Jews and refugees as quickly as they defend actual goddamn Nazis.”   whatever helps you sleep at night. i think most people who block people mid-debate are probably pretty shit at having a clear and honest debate.

but hey. thats just me.

Solar System: Who should you date?
  • The sun: don't date the sun. The sun is the ultimate fuckboy. Don't u dare date the sun. The sun has got like 8 planets and a bunch of other side hoes that no one knows about REVOLVING them. DONT DATE THE SUN
  • Mercury: unless you want to face the wrath of the sun I'd say you wait until this bitch stops revolving around that giant loser
  • Venus: date Venus. Venus barely does anything that harms anyone and is almost similar to earth. Probably even better. 10/10 would recommend settling down and having kids
  • Earth: you're pretty much stuck with earth until you die. Unless you don't want to, I advise moving to a different galaxy until it settles all of its issues
  • Mars: look, mars is a good guy but I don't think you're their type. Actually no one is Mars' type. Don't even try, buddy
  • Jupiter: this fucker got too many side moons do u rly want to be one of them?
  • Saturn: sorry friend, someone already put a ring on it
  • Uranus: it's like dating a stone cold asshole who farts too much. Don't date Uranus if you want to live properly
  • Neptune: Neptune is pretty chill go ahead and have a few coffees with them. They're a little slow compared to earth but just be patient. They'll come around eventually
  • Pluto: PLUTO. FUCKING GO AND DATE PLUTO. PLUTO NEEDS SOMEONE TO LOVE EVER SINCE THEIR FAMILY CAST THEM AWAY. HUG PLUTO. KISS PLUTO. TELL PLUTO THEYRE IMPORTANT. PLUTO HAS THE BIGGEST HEART

Stephen Colbert And Maira Kalman: Abraham Lincoln Is ‘My Man,’ 'Would Be The Most Incredible Boyfriend’

A terrific manifesto:

I don’t have an agenda, and I don’t know what I’m going to do or going to say, and that’s exactly the point: I don’t want to get bored, I don’t want to bore you, or anybody else in the whole world, so I’m going to write as little as possible, and give you information that I think is interesting and amazing.
