illegitimate

anonymous asked:

You must not know anything about how it is to be an illegitimate child and an orphan in Japan if you think anyone had it worse than Akechi. Try googling the next time you talk out of your ass.

Just so we’re all on the same page you are honest to god comparing, idk, being the target of a teacher’s sexual harassment or being the victim of a father’s physical and emotional abuse+having a teacher not just pick on you but break. Your. Fucking. LEG. Thus ruining the chance at a future you had+spreading around that you’re an abuse victim to the whole school and then, when you finally get pissed and react, gets you labeled a delinquent which leads to you having to witness your also an abuse victim mother being talked down to by school staff? Orrr being bullied for years, physically abused by a teacher who also uses you to spread rumors around the school, makes you the target of other students because you’re a 0 (a concept you actually believe because it’s so ingrained in you) and your parents see it all, see you come home bruised and battered like no Volleyball practice could make you, and do absolutely nothing about it? Abandon you to get through it, or not get through it, alone.

We are honestly comparing these things to being an illegitimate child/orphan (which, coincidently, is what happened to Futaba except she thought her mother’s death was her fault, speaking of fucking orphans.) and going ‘yes. Daddy Issues Akechi had it way *worse*.’ You aren’t even going for equally as bad? Not going to at least say we can’t compare trauma?

Going to ignore that Ann suffered from being half White/American, that Ryuji is forever labeled a deliquant from a broken home, and that Mishima has been systematically bullied since at least middle school and that adults literally turn a blind eye, we’re just gonna ignore all the social and emotional implications of that shit, the stigma of it all, to say that because of the social stigma of being a bastard Akechi wins the bad background Olympics? And what, deserves sympathy and understanding for how he turned out to be, idk, a fucking *Murderer* because of his daddy issues? Deserved a better end?

Okay then. I’m not even gonna say anything else. Just gonna. Laugh, let others laugh, and be glad you sent this anon so I have it to link to if anyone ever asks why I have no Akechi sympathy/am glad the little fuck died. ;) I’ll never need to address it again. Thanks.

sorry but i do not buy that 2d “a woman once threw me her knickers so i washed them for her and now she brings her laundry every show and i do it for her even though it is becoming a hassle” pot has multiple illegitimate children

Some fractured fairy tale ideas...

- Cinderella went to the ball to kill the prince.

- “All hail Alice, the Queen of Hearts.”

- Rapunzel is the witch’s illegitimate daughter, and she is being kept safe from a king who would have her killed on sight.

- The Little Match Girl is a now phantom luring people to their deaths.

- Little Red Riding Hood is a werewolf.

- “So… You’re the Pied Piper, eh? I thought you’d be taller.”

- Princess Snow White and the evil Snow Queen? One and the same.

- “If you value your life, my life, the lives of everyone in this city… you won’t wake the sleeping princess.”

- The land of the Twelve Dancing Princesses is falling apart at the seams, and the rest of reality with it.

- A witch who made some bad decisions in her youth is forced to adopt and raise a child.

- After Jack the Giant Killer ruthlessly murdered their king and threw their world into turmoil and war, the inhabitants of the Sky Kingdom must rebuild their lives.

- “What… what is it?”
“A firebird – the last of her kind.”

Over the years of your life, you get super into occultism and devil-worship. One day you summon a demon with the intent of selling your soul in replace for your utmost desires. One problem though. You’re the illegitimate son of God.

So, a POTUS Who Is Almost Certainly Illegitimate Will See His Supreme Court Nominee Confirmed to a Lifetime Position: The Fiery Hellscape Gets Doused in Kerosene

As I write this, DJT’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch hasn’t yet been confirmed. 

I’m glad the Democrats are filibustering–might as well go down fighting–but whether or not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell does or doesn’t use the “nuclear option”, the GOP has the votes. 

Barring, say, an asteroid hitting the Senate chambers, Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States this week. 

Meanwhile, evidence mounts that DJT isn’t the legitimate POTUS. Though he did go nutso again on Twitter today, railing about Hillary and the debates, i.e. events of six months ago and wholly irrelevant to whether or not he was legitimately elected. 

Which is exactly what a person would do to deflect attention from the current Senate and House investigations into whether or not he colluded with Russia in order to get elected.

By any legal, ethical, practical, or moral yardstick, President Obama’s SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland should’ve filled Scalia’s seat after the latter died. 

If we impeach DJT–which I believe we will–are we stuck with Gorsuch on the bench? To the best of my understanding, there would be no Constitutional mechanism to remove him from his seat after he is confirmed. 

We’ve long known all this would get worse before it gets better. 

And I do believe eventually it will get better. DJT’s approval ratings are at 36% and each day he alienates more of the nation. 

But in the meantime, the hellscape gets more hellish. 

Confirming Gorsuch to Garland’s slot adds kerosene to the fire.

i love the idea of the joestars having to escape from their fans in the same way that Dio has to escape from his illegitimate children

What Is Liberalism?

Oftentimes in leftist circles you can hear folks decrying liberals and liberalism. If you ask them why they hate liberalism, most of them will point you in the direction of Mao’s Combat Liberalism to better understand them, but this is a mistake. Combat Liberalism is effectively an internal memo, warning other communists of the need to avoid liberalism lest it be detrimental to their work. It details results of that ideology, but not causes. To that end, I’ve compiled a brief description of what liberalism is and why it’s bad.

The ideology of liberalism is denoted by three tenets:

  1. Free-market capitalism. Liberals believe that capitalism is good, or at least “the best we have”. While liberals may argue over how much intervention in the market is necessary, they all agree on the fundamental goodness of capitalism, and that it should be tweaked rather than replaced.
  2. The state and representative “democracy”. Liberals believe that the state is good, and that representative democracy is an effective means of creating social change and an acceptable level of participation. They reject any aims outside of the state, and try to co-opt movements towards state action (e.g. electing Democrats).
    1. Nonviolence: The liberal insistence on “nonviolent” protest (usually invoking a whitewashed history of Dr. King) is largely derived from state-worship. They see the state as the only legitimate user of force, and all others as violent looters and rioters; because of that, they refuse to even consider violence as a method of protest or direct action (e.g. antifascism).
    2. Indirect action and representative problem-solving: Linked to the lionization of representative democracy, liberals care little for direct action, even as indirect as blocking a street for a few hours. They believe that the power to change things is vested solely in those representatives, and that the common person shouldn’t bother; direct action, to them, is illegitimate for the same reason as violence.
  3. A focus on individual rather than class politics. Liberals see all social issues as issues primarily affecting individuals, rather than groups. In other words, they lack a class analysis; they see racism, for example, as the result of individual prejudices and “meanness” and something to be fixed at that level, rather than a system of structural violence against non-white peoples aimed at dividing the working class.

 Liberalism, as an ideology, is dangerous. These three tenets combine to form an analysis that is insufficient to encompass the whole of the enemy, and more importantly a praxis that is ineffective at combating it. It infects activists and ordinary workers alike, and railroads them into believing that they cannot change a society that benefits only those at the top. It railroads them into believing that the burdens they bear cannot be thrown off, and stands in the way of our collective liberation. It must be combated, for it is at the root of the struggle.

Why do people think Lena will be evil? Of all the Lena Luthor versions just one is really a villain

Why do people always say that Lena has to be evil if they follow the Comics when she isn’t evil in most of them? And she isn’t evil in other TV appareances either. Let’s see what we have here:

In the comics

First version

Was first introduced in Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane #23. This version of her has psychic abilities thanks to one of Lex’s experiments. She wants to work wih the FBI but they don’t let her because of her past. She joins a band of criminals only to bring them back to justice and after Supergirl discovers this she tries to get her that job with the FBI. She’s good and she loses her abilities later.

Second version

She first appears in Superman: Secret Origin and then in Adventure Comics. This version of Lena is paralyzed after an accident. She’s a single mom, she has a daughter, Lori Luthor.  Lex cures Lena but then uncures her and  won’t reveal how he did it until Superman is dead. She’s not evil in this version either.

Third Version

She’s in The New 52 era of the DC comics. This version of Lena suffered from G.B. syndrome and when Lex tried to cure her faster he left her paralyzed. She works in the labs of Lexcorp and she helps it become a global powerhouse. After a lot of stuff happens she turns against Lex and becomes a supervillian, Ultrawoman. She gains powers in this version too.

Fourth version

She’s from Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the Eighth Grade. She’s Linda (Kara)’s best friend. They attend the same boarding school. She’s 13 and she’s super smart. She’s actually really nice and a really good friend, she’s a little antagonistic, not really a villain though. She blames Supergirl for what happened to Lex but after some things happen she changes her mind.

Bonus

I don’t think Lex’s daugther, Lena Luthor II, counts because that’s not really the same character. In that universe Lex did have a sister named Lena, who was killed by their foster father, and he named his daughter after her. His daughter, Lena, was controlled by Brainiac. 

In TV shows

First Version

She was in Superboy, a TV show from 1988. Lex and Lena were abused by their father all the time when they were kids. Lex kills their parents and some years later Lena fakes her death to escape the Luthor name. When Lex finds out she “died” he tries to destroy the planet but Lena, who was found by Clark and Lana, stops him. She was good.

Second Version

She appeared in Smallville initially as Tess Mercer, who later discovers she’s Lutessa Lena Luthor. She’s the illegitimate daughter of Lionel and was left in an orphanage when she was five. She works a lot with Clark and is part of the Checkmate organization. She seemed antagonistic at first but she was good.

And then, we have our Lena and so far she seems to be nothing but good, and Katie has said so, she’s genuine and honest, what you see is what you get. So I don’t really think they will turn her into a villain

What This Feels Like: The Film “Groundhog Day” Inside a Nightmare Where the POTUS is Illegitimate, the VP is a Religious Fanatic, and the Administration is Littered with Treasonous Goons

Today is Day #69. 

I don’t know why we worried that this would start to feel normal. 

It will never feel normal. 

If this helps, in addition to all your Resistance work–phone calls, letters, donations, marches, and such–keep reminding yourself, “This is finite.”

That’s why I track the days. 

One day, this nightmare will be over.

Oh, how I want to wake up.

Pierce Brosnan made a mermaid movie but nobody is allowed to see it!!!

i was casually browsing pierce brosnan’s wikipedia page tonight when i noticed something v exciting: he recently filmed a MERMAID FANTASY MOVIE where he plays KING LOUIS XIV. how had i not heard about this?

this is clearly the best film ever made:

“King Louis XIV’s quest for immortality leads him to capture and steal a mermaid’s life force, a move that is further complicated by his illegitimate daughter’s discovery of the creature.” [x]

Kaya Skodelario plays the daughter. Fan Bingbing plays the mermaid. there are also a bunch of men but i don’t care about them.

naturally i was very excited to hear about this movie, for the obvious reason that it stars A MERMAID alongside PIERCE BROSNAN IN A HISTORICAL WIG. but then i noticed something ominous: it’s been delayed. “indefinitely” delayed. since April 2015.

usually when a film gets delayed for that long, it means one of two things: it’s an unwatchably terrible box office disaster in the making, or there’s some weird legal shit going on behind the scenes.

but whatever the reason, seriously: Paramount Pictures, i do not care. please deliver the goods on this PIERCE BROSNAN MERMAID MOVIE. it’s a cultural necessity.

I’ve never considered it before but like.

The UA teachers knew about All Might’s true form before it was revealed to the public, right?

But they don’t know about One For All (except for Recovery Girl and principal Nedzu).

So like. When Cementoss saved All Might’s secret from getting out to Kirishima at the end of the USJ invasion, and he saw how unbothered All Might was about Izuku knowing his true form and how Izuku didn’t seem all too surprised by it, he must have realized that Izuku knew about All Might’s true form already.

And I mean, he must have wondered why Izuku, specifically, was the only student to know about All Might’s secret.

Put that together with the similarity in their quirks, and Aizawa’s observation on the first day of school about All Might picking favourites, there’s one obvious conclusion the teachers must have come to.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is, the UA teachers all totally think that Izuku is All Might’s illegitimate child.

“We have a president of the United States who spent four or five years disparaging and trying to illegitimize our president, and we know that was a big fake, but [he] still felt for some reason that it had to be done. ... If [racism] is being discussed and perpetrated at that level, then you have a national problem.”

Elizabeth Woodville || The queen consort of a warrior king who took the throne after a rebellion, she was considered the most beautiful woman in the realm. Her critics also viewed her as cold, manipulative, and calculating. Her family benefited greatly from her status as queen, garnering positions and influence. After the death of her husband, she attempted to take control of her son and the crown from the new Lord Protector. Her children were proclaimed illegitimate by her husband’s brother, who took the throne.

Catherine de Medici || From a family known for money, she became queen consort to a king she had a difficult relationship with and was the mother of three kings, two of whom died before her. She wielded varying degrees of power over the government, ruling as queen regent for a time. The reigns of her sons saw civil war and religious turmoil.

Margaret of Anjou || Known to be beautiful, volitile, “passionate and proud and strong-willed”, she became a prominent figure in the English civil war, the War of the Roses, as one of the Lancastrian leaders. She married the reigning king and gave birth to his heir. Many speculated that her son was the product of adultery, though this was never proven. She survived both her son and husband.

Jane Shore || The mistress of a king, she was known to be a great beauty with many suitors. The part she played in attempting to stop Richard III’s rise to power led to her being forced to perform a public walk of penance as punishment. George R. R. Martin cited the event as the basis for Cersei’s walk of penance.

Six months. That’s how long almost half of the new hire last when they become social workers. Some will tell you it’s the pay, others will tell you it’s the stress, still others will complain about poor training or case overload or the broken system. But that’s all bullshit. The reason they quit is always the same; the kids.

On punching Nazis: if you advocate violent suppression of opposing viewpoints you might be a fascist.

On liberals that misunderstand fascism so severely that they ignore every other characteristic of fascism (e.g. hostility to socialism/liberal democracy; perceptions of community/national decline/obsessions with myths of nationalist rebirth & greatness; an emphasis with racial or national “purity;” the scapegoating of “others,” often racist in nature; the fetishization of violence as a political tool to purge or “cleanse” the nation of “corrupting” or “alien” elements; prioritization of military might and national security; seeking to replace the current ruling elite with their own idealized class; the imposition of their brand of “order” on the rest of the population; an obsession with nationalism/ultra-nationalism; wanton disregard for human rights, intellectuals, and the arts; rampant cronyism and corruption coalescing around the ownership or control of government by one person or a tiny group of people) in their ahistorical attempt to paint anti-fascists as fascists using false equivalence: if you believe that fascism is an “opposing view point”  and not a completely discredited, potentially lethal, utterly illegitimate belief system; if you think fascists can be prevented from murdering people with your liberal witty repartée or hugging it out; if you’re completely oblivious to the use of physical force smashing fascism during world war two or beating back the fascists of Daesh in our times; if you sit on your fucking hands and do sweet FA when fascists are openly organizing in your community but rush to condemn those brave enough to stand up to them before they start shooting up mosques or calling bomb threats into Jewish centers or setting immigrant-owned businesses on fire or randomly shooting racialized people or stabbing black men to death in the streets or attempting to beat refugees to death; then you’re just as bad as the fascists are.
