jusic

Hey for all of the people (mostly young straight cis white men) just barely getting upset about Jeff Sessions and the Trump Admin due to their coming crackdown on legal marijuana - I just want to make something clear to you. I know you like to laugh at SJWs, and you don’t understand so-called leftist “buzzwords,” and you like to make the same fucking tired transphobic jokes for no reason - but let me just say, this is literally the perfect opportunity to talk to y’all about a little something called INTERSECTIONALITY.

What exactly did you think was the end game here for Republicans? Did you think that their states rights rhetoric was actually genuine? Did you think that triggering the libs was worth this? Because this crackdown on marijuana was obvious to anyone that works in any kind of activist work whatsoever. Do you know why? It’s because literally all of these issues are related. Marijuana legalization cuts down on mass incarceration, which is directly tied to racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as queer liberation movements dedicated to the same things. The Republican party has always been and always will be more racist then they are actually concerned with upholding state’s rights.  Everyone who has actually been oppressed by the state knows this. That is intersectionality. Now you at least understand one “buzzword.”

So now that the state is actually coming after something you enjoy and like, please try and fucking understand for once that you cannot have your cake and eat it too. You just can’t. You can’t be a transphobic or racist asshole and then be shocked when the state comes after your goose. Because every issue related to freedom and liberation is directly tied to every other issue related to freedom and liberation.

There can be no liberation until all of us are free. Fucking get your head out of your ass and join us, or you will just continue to be fucked over. I promise.

“So basically, they’re going to concoct some kind of construction and they will use my facial expressions – eyes, mouth, voice – that’ll turn into this murderous, avenging Steppenwolf from the planet Apokolips, apparently. Who’s bent on Hell on Earth.” -  Ciaran Hinds on his character Steppenwolf in Justice League 

dear america,

i’ve been sitting on my couch all day, wrapped up in a blanket, eating chips ahoy and retweeting every upsetting tweet on my timeline, in the worst funk i’ve ever felt. just shock. disappointment. doubt. my anxiety, my depression-everything in my mind spiraling and bringing every bad vision of the future to the front of my mind, but then i realized something- this is what he wants. this is exactly what donald j fucking trump wants.
he wants us like this. he wants the LGBTQ+ community to lose hope and dull their colors. he wants women to stop speaking out and believe that nothing will ever change for us. he wants every person of color to feel anxious and scared. he wants us to believe that we’re done. he wants us to believe that this is it. he wants us to believe that all this progress over the years was for nothing.
and if you give up, that means he wins.
have hope. have fire. if you can’t find a reason, have the revolution running inside your veins out of spite. if you continue to be loud and proud about who you are, weather it be as a woman, as a person of color, as someone who is disabled, as someone a part of the LGBTQ+ community, that means his mission has failed. he wants us to feel so small that we want to hide underground, but fuck no, we’re going to rise right out of this.
if there’s anything i’ve learned about my peers as a teenager in america, whether i like them or not, is that the modern youth of this country right now are phoenixes. rising out of the ash of the country we were born in, glowing with new ideas and morality. what’s one more flame to set and crumble for us to come out of the other side, a powerful new being?
if you think of this as anything, take it as motivation. motivation to do everything he’s against. have a voice. fight for your rights, and other people’s rights, take none of his shit. be there for your friends who are worried. we stand for love and equality for all, and there will never be anything more powerful than that. so love one another. celebrate your differences. have each other’s backs. never lose the lightning in your mind and thunder in your words.
because there is nothing more inspiring and beautiful than living in a country with a leader who wants to tear you down, as you keep growing and rising above with your fist high and a fucking smile on your face.
the future belongs to us. we may hit a few hurdles along the way, just like now- but we. will. win.
he doesn’t get the last word. we do.
with love,

College Project

If y'all would like to help me with my college Project that would be great! It will only take a minute of your time and honestly have to answer two questions.

Seeing as I’m kind of a marvel fan page I would also like it if people could spread this around to other superhero based fan pages like D.C. Or any others so it can be less biased.

Here’s the link!

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1-96JWhDvg9EsYm65wBT1QlS1O7RsaRzYKledUAZKlo0/edit#responses

This would be a tremendous help thank you to everyone who fills it out and spreads it around 😊

An Innocent Blog Post:

I wish people were nicer on here. Not everyone knows about a certain social jusice issue, and while it’s important to inform others about it… people shouldn’t tell someone to kill themselves if they have a different opinion. Or if they made an honest mistake.

Typical Tumblr Response:

OP, are you white?
I bet you’re an annoying whitey.
Shut up, cracker.

……

Question: Why should it matter what race a blogger is? Being respectful to others is not racially exclusive.

Assuming a blogger’s race based on what they post hurts everyone. “OP, are you white?” That attitude is rude to white folks because it assumes that being white atomically disregards their opinion… And it’s rude to poc folks because it assumes that all poc are hateful and rude. Neither assumptions are true so… why try to pick a fight?

Here’s a thought. No matter what race you are or what opinion you have, just be respectful. I’ll say it again. Being respectful is not racially exclusive. 

When you’re looking for someone’s color before judging their opinions, no matter which race they’re from, I believe there’s a word for that. It’s called prejudice.

anonymous asked:

It seems like it's too late to bring back YJ. Shouldn't you all move on?

You can if you want to. 

But I think people are still waiting to hear back from Netflix (just google “young jusice season 3″ news and read the recent pieces).

And these things–acquiring licenses–take time. Maybe months. Maybe years. Instant gratification isn’t always applicable. It’s literally only been like… maybe less than a month since the rumors picked up steam. 

And dammit I’m not giving up on something I truly truly want until an actual answer is set in stone, and I advise you to do the same (to anything in life, really).

The Angry Birds movie wasn’t very angry

It should have been on the level of F is For Family, The Turrets Guy, Winnebago Man videos in terms of anger. The Red bird is just annoyed.

Like I needed to have a build up like the character being treated like utter shit the whole movie and you just want him to fucking kill other birds and pigs.

A satisfying revenge fantasy like the Crow or Punisher 2004 or Falling Down. Those pigs were mildy annoying. Like the bigs needed to smash a few eggs and maybe tie up the main character and smash the eggs on him. That way he’s soaked in the baby jusices of the dead birds. You know. That way the audience would be fucking pissed by the end and he just destroys the fucking pigs.
