“I didn’t want this fight coming back to you,” Neil said.
“Too late for that now. But whatever,” Allison said. She was going for lofty, but Neil could see the anger in every tense line of her when she surveyed her car again. “They want to break my toy? So what? I’ll buy another one. Maybe I’ll buy two. Fuck them if they think this will hurt me.”

why do you suppose ~cutesy~ communism is so popular on tumblr? these days every time i go to someone's blog i see like 10 pastel aesthetic communist symbols and i just, dont get it

to be completely honest, i don’t know and it bugs me but i think it’s because it exists at the crux of tumblr’s love of simplifiying/radicalising complicated movements and idealising them with communism being, on the surface, an easy idea to romanticise for middle-class teenagers with shitty history education. 

1) Tumblr’s SJ scene is staunchly anti-capitalist - the root of a lot of oppression is based on exploitation and military/prison/media etc industry complexes that upholds the status quo of rich white men in power exploiting the poor and powerless. But simply being anti-capitalist doesn’t really get you anywhere in terms of social change, you can’t just sign a petition and opt out, this is not a system we get to choose, so I guess for people who aren’t familiar with communism’s history, this becomes the Better Option, The Greater Good, the other solution that is anti-thesis to capitalism. and even though it’s failed in every incarnation it’s existed in, there are always people who believe they’ll be smarter and get it right and turn it into a Feminist Utopia (even though in all incarnations of communism, it’s been ruled almost unanimously by powerful men who filled their cabinets and political positions with men). Communism stands for a change in the status quo that they can reasonably hope for - the other option would be a complete overhaul and utter fucking chaos. Which leads to:


2) I’m know I’m really fucking blunt about this, but it doesn’t fit into the mainstream Discourse ™ narrative. The oppression that people faced under communism doesn’t fit into neat privilege/oppression binary dynamics. It was about government oppression, but the governments were equally harsh on everyone in the name of brining about equality, so when people who call out tumblr’s behaviour (usually the kids and grandkids of the generation that did live through a harsh authoritarian rule and still bear the generational trauma of the country) speak about it, it’s easy for the SJ-scene to ignore. 

Honestly, I find the trend pretty fucking disgusting, especially the huge amounts of deliberate ignorance it takes to apologise for government-mandated mass-murders and political purges because of how many people literally refuse to educate themselves. 

communism is anti-capitalist and boasts equality of the classes in its ideology, but we all know that it has an ugly history where literally none of its ideals have been accomplished without massive bloodshed, government oppression and violence. Communism has symbols and a ready-made system to and it’s easy to ignore the genocide that it caused and used to symbolise. 

I want to stitch you a song

It looks like I will be between jobs for a few months and I thought meanwhile I’d try something new and sell my embroidery art. I’ll be making lots of beautiful embroidery hoops with One Direction lyrics and solo lyrics from all the boys.

I’ll probably open my shop on the 1st of July 2017!
This is a sideblog. I’ll try to keep this place somewhat professional, so you can savely follow me on here (if you’re interested in my work) without being afraid of me clogging your dash. I will keep all my other stuff at my main blog.

Lots of love, Liz.

Coffee shop au where Zuko is the perpetually flustered, slightly socially awkward barista who tries to communicate his crush on hot chocolate-loving regular Sokka by drawing chocolate syrup hearts on top of his whipped cream.

Sokka, once he actually takes the lid off his cup and notices, is charmed and asks him out immediately.
