i don't ever make posts

Turkey and Egypt were bombed just this week and the syrian government is literally committing genocide and nobody fucking gives a fuck
I’m sorry but where are the hashtags? the facebook pictures? Why does nobody give a fuck about terrorism when non whites people are victims? if this was paris or bruxelles y'all will be talking about it for weeks, if this was the usa y'all will be talking about it for years. Honestly wtf why don’t you care about us? Why?

su crit: *points out legitimate problems of the show like the ignorance about framing a human zoo as a utopia, the disregard of characters like Bismuth and the Rubies, the over coddling of Pearl, how the Diamonds are being framed as sympathetic despite being tyrants, the dissolving characterization, etc etc*

...or, you know, some of us think Cap is and was right about the whole thing because we're also opposed to the real-world implementation of similar fascist legislation such as The Patriot Act and it has nothing to do with liking him more?

That quote basically says, yes oversight is the right ethical and logical choice, but Cap is a good person, and that puts us in a quandary and I am saying that that is bad math.

It’s also a similar bad math that comes up in A LOT of 616 CW discussions, where Captain America himself (and the anti-reg side) essentially takes the position to non-metas that they should accept that metas occupy a position above the law/beyond equal prosecution by the law, because, you know, they’re different, and their circumstances are different, but you trust CAPTAIN AMERICA, riiiiight? Let the metas judge their own and police their own, what do you need the Constitutional right of equality under the law for? Obviously, this base position is immediately complicated by the clusterfuck of everything else in CW, but I’d argue that that’s deliberate. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of the event, because I really like Cap, and I hate the things it makes him argue and I find them antithetical to him as a character.

I also don’t exactly get why so many people find a difference of opinion on a comics event, or, apparently, an actor’s opinion on an upcoming film none of us have seen as a personal challenge? I mean?? Yes I hate fascism? And the Patriot Act? And I think Cap’s political position is largely wrong in CW though I understand why, as the plot is manipulated, he fights? These things are not incompatible?

I get what you’re saying, but I’m responding to the quote as written and many, *many* other posts and comics CW itself, which initially sets up the problem as a constitutional legal problem of supers as American citizens whose identities allow them to avoid legal repercussions and prosecution and that’s constitutionally unacceptable under the law. Once that actually gets stated, there’s a problem.  

I’m not talking about the Patriot Act here, which I abhor, because it wasn’t part of the quote or what I was responding to, and I think the CW treatment of post-9/11 politics was really terrible, tone-deaf, and inconsistent in its understanding of xenophobia** and power dynamics. 

behind the cut

 for long rambly stuff about comics CW that’s more for future reference to point anyone to should they ask.

The official SU page on Facebook posted a clip from the episode with this description and, I dunno, I just really like that they did that

we put these jellybeans on a scale when i was trying to think of all the things i like about you. and i was trying to decide what i needed to do. it means you riley. i choose you. and i really want you to choose me. i do. i always did. i have something for you too. you do? we have this one little life, and for a lot of it, we just blow around in the wind. but if we’re lucky and we believe that life knows what’s best of us, sometimes we land on the right person to talk to. i’m glad i fell into your lap. so am i. 

Hey guys you wanna see my son?

I love my son

so i’m going to make a lengthy text post about saphael because i find myself continuously being surprised by their relationship. and while this is obvious, this is purely my respectful opinion.

with the scenes that we are getting, i’m having a hard time getting the vibe that simon and raphael are enemies. after season one and simon’s betrayal, we all know what happened next. with raphael demanding simon be punished/killed for his crimes. yeah a little harsh.

yet here we are… season two… and all we see is the two turning to one another for help although begrudgingly so which makes complete sense. now i’m not one to take sides, i fully see that the two have really fucked each other over when you think about it, but i’ve seen some wicked hate out there for raphael and i think that’s surprising since we just saw how he was tortured because of simon’s slip up, which i don’t blame him for but should be more careful with his wording. 

i’m lacking a point, yet while the two are supposed to be angry at one another, i just see them saving each other’s butts (although simon not so willingly). it’s getting a bit frustrating for the show to have great opportunities to build their on-screen relationship, friend-wise or more, and yet never go any further. there are so many unanswered questions. what happened when simon and raphael had to leave while Magnus dealt with camille? how did raphael get into simon’s room? why was simon’s mom so comfortable with raphael being around? does she actually think they’re dating?

anyway this is sort of complaint/sort of post about my thoughts on season two and saphael.
