more than i'd like to say

happy birthday to our dearest jungkook!
thank you for being you 

get you a musical who can do both
  • Hamilton: I catch a glimpse of the other side. Laurens leads a soldier's chorus on the other side, my son is on the other side! He's with my mother on the other side! Washington is watching from the other side! Teach me how to say goodbye, rise up, rise up, rise up, Eliza... My love, take your time. I'll see you on the other side.
  • also Hamilton: I'm a general! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  • Spring Awakening: All things he ever lived are left behind. All the fears that ever flickered through his mind, all the sadness that he'd come to own.
  • also Spring Awakening: Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla, bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla. Totally fucked
  • Spelling Bee: I think Dad is angry, Mom, and I do not know what to do... I think he takes out on me what he wants to take out on you. Mama, Mama, Mama! How I wish you were home.
  • also Spelling Bee: My unfortunate erection is destroying my perfection
  • Next to Normal: Do you wake up in the morning and need help to lift your head? Do you read obituaries and feel jealous of the dead? It's like living on a cliffside, not knowing when you'll dive. Do you know, do you know what it's like to die alive?
  • also Next to Normal: Valium is my favorite color
  • Dear Evan Hansen: I guess I wanted to believe, 'cause if I just believe, then I don't have to see what's really there. No, I'd rather pretend I'm something better than these broken parts. Pretend I'm something other than this mess that I am, 'cause then I don't have to look at it.
  • also Dear Evan Hansen: iF i sTOP SmOKInG CrACK-
  • Falsettos: What more can I say? How am I to face tomorrow, after being screwed out of today? Tell me what's in store. Yes, I'd beg or steal or borrow if I could hold you for one hour more.
  • also Falsettos: I'm bitching, he's bitching, they're bitching, we're bitching, bitch bitch bitch bitch funny funny funny funny bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch
  • Great Comet: So easy to close off, place the blame outside. Hiding in my room at night, so terrified. All the things I could have been, but I never had the nerve. Life and love I don't deserve!
  • also Great Comet: says the mean old man in his underthings
  • In the Heights: "Alabanza" means to raise this thing to God’s face and to sing, quite literally, “Praise to this.” When she was here, the path was clear. And she was just here! She was just here...
  • also In the Heights: he's packing a stretch limousine
  • Groundhog Day: I thought the only way to better days was through tomorrow, but I know now, I know. Yes, I know now that I know... nothing.
  • also Groundhog Day: suck my balls i'm out

I’m no expert—I’m hearing and my understanding of American Sign Language is extremely limited—so please feel free to correct/add on to this! But I was just really struck by (and loved!) Elisa’s “F U” to Strickland in the above scene, which was featured at the end of the newly-released Red Band trailer for The Shape of Water.

Here, Elisa is literally signing “F” and “U” from the ASL alphabet, but what makes this so striking is that, by doing so, she’s not exactly speaking ASL—she’s fingerspelling English. 

ASL is a completely separate language from spoken/written English, and fingerspelling is pretty much only used if there are no ASL equivalents for what needs to be conveyed, such as in the case of names. (In fact, when I was learning ASL, my teacher waited a while before teaching us the alphabet because she didn’t want us fingerspelling English instead of actually trying to sign!)

So the fact that Elisa uses fingerspelling here, when there are other ways in ASL to convey the idea of “fuck you,” says a lot. It says even more when you consider how she’s fingerspelling, since her fingerspelling here is not how a deaf person/someone who speaks ASL would typically fingerspell. 

‘Cause fingerspelling? It’s fast. Extremely fast. Each letter flows smoothly into the next. When you fingerspell, it should be an incredibly fluid motion.

But here? That’s 110% not the case. Elisa is slow and measured. She holds out each letter nice and long. It’s the kinda way you’d fingerspell to someone learning ASL—and actually, my teacher would say to not even do that. If you slow down so much for them all the time, they’ll never be able to keep up with real ASL!

So, this scene? This scene with Elisa fingerspelling something that doesn’t need to be fingerspelled, in an incredible, deliberate, slower-than-college-WiFi pace? Well, Elisa is doing more than just dissing Strickland—she’s absolutely taunting him. She’s saying, “I’m speaking your language. I dare you to understand me.”

And she knows that he won’t. She’s speaking crystal clearly, no stuttering, no hesitance, no nothing, and Strickland can’t even be damned to attempt the basic ASL alphabet because he would never, ever try to understand anything different from him.

And Elisa knows this and completely, totally rubs it in his bigoted face.

What Does Colorism Look Like?

- Songs that praise light skin by devaluing & disrespecting dark skin

- Telling children to “stay out of the sun” because you don’t want them to be darker

- “”“Preferences”“” for light skin 🙃

- People with light skin being listened to more often than people with dark skin

- Light skin being associated with beauty & intelligence in and outside the black community while dark skin is associated with aggression and ugliness

- Favouring family members with light skin immediately over those with dark skin

- Media depicting acceptable blackness as light skin

- When actors/actresses with dark skin are cast, their roles are often loud, aggressive, ghetto, etc

- Or casting actors/actresses with light skin to play characters with dark skin instead of just fucking hiring somebody with dark skin

- Dark skin being the punchline of shitty “jokes” about how nobody could love dark skin

- “We all niggas to the whites” being said to shut down conversations about colorism

- “I don’t realize that talking about colorism isn’t dismissing the struggles I face as a black person, so I’m going to derail conversations about colorism whenever I see them and not bother to learn about it” 🙃

- When the above thing happens people with light skin always think they in the right because colorism teaches us that we’re smarter than people with dark skin and by default right

- Tbh somebody with light skin could just be breathing or doing something mediocre and they get praised to high heaven, which goes back to the idea of light skin being so over valued in our community

- Half of us ain’t even all that we just light

- Makeup catering to people who are white passing or have light skin

- People with dark skin being told they can’t wear certain colors/patterns

- I can guarantee we (light skinned people) salty when a woman with dark skin gets more attention than us because colorism is so pervasive it’s taught us that we’re better and deserve more attention automatically

- Language differences: in daily conversation people with light skin are less dehumanized and more respected than people with dark skin

- I really believe if I wasn’t light I would not be able to do this project because nobody would listen to me. I’m not even saying anything new or inventive, I’m just repeating what people with dark skin have been saying

- If any of this is outta line I’d be more than happy to be corrected by somebody who has experienced/experiences colorism 😊

I loved "the team try to assume things about neil"!!!! Are you going to write more? I'd love to read more! Anyways, love your writing, stay healthy and have fun writing whatever you want!! 💜💜

I’ve got a couple more asks about this, so there definitely going to be more in the future. Here’s part 2/?

  • Dan has to know how many girls Neil has kissed now that the game’s revealed he’s kissed more than one
  • So she says “Neil Josten has only kissed two girls.”
  • Neil says “Wrong.”
  • Andrew’s eyes are on him even more
  • The team is shocked
  • Neil adds “And I don’t know how many, so counting up like this isn’t going to get you an answer.”
  • Allison insists “I’m calling bullshit. One girl, maybe. But there is no way you’ve kissed so many you lost count. We all saw how smooth you were with Marissa.”
  • But they weren’t all there
  • And they remember that as Andrew asks “Who the fuck is Marissa?”
  • Andrew isn’t jealous
  • He’s annoyed by the number of leftover lies and secrets
  • Nicky eagerly shows off his Neil knowledge and fills Andrew in
  • “She’s a cheerleader who tried to flirt with Neil. I got secondhand embarrassment when he turned her down. It was harsh.”
  • Neil argues “There was no point pretending I’d call her.”
  • Matt asks “Have you ever called anyone?”
  • Neil is offended by the question
  • But like, also, he’s only called his mom, Wymack, and Andrew
  • Andrew asks “What would she want with you?”
  • He means it as a dig and as a genuine question because at that point did Neil even talk about anything other than exy?
  • Neil says “Rumour has it I’m interesting.”
  • Andrew says “So is a trainwreck.”
  • America: 9:01! Germany is officially late for the first time ever. All right let's do this, who's got theories?
  • Japan: Uh... his alarm didn't go off.
  • America: All three alarms? All with battery back up? Come on, who wants to take this seriously?
  • Russia: Ooh, he was taken in his sleep.
  • America: That's what I'm talking about. Super dark, Russia, but way more plausible than Japan's idiotic alarm clock theory.
  • Italy: I bet he tucked himself into bed too tight and got stuck.
  • Romano: Hmm, maybe he fell into another dimension where he’s interesting?
  • [Britain sees the group huddled around the door.]
  • Britain: It's 9:00 AM, why hasn’t the world meeting started?
  • America: Germany is a few minutes late, and we're all trying to guess why.
  • Britain: I'd like to play. I'd say he’s... in line at the bank. This is fun.

  • Germany: …There was a problem at the bank.
  • Britain: *claps his hands together* HOT DAMN!

y'know what i was thinking, that the “leave the math to pidge” line makes a lot sense in the context of the episode bc few scenes before that pidge was talking all sciency and we see that keith immediately turned to lance for an explanation about what she had just said (and we know lance explains inside jokes and stuff like that to keith before he even asks now) but he was clueless as keith was. it almost felt like keith was saying “you and i both saw we’re not that good at math before, leave that to pidge and don’t worry”
which makes it even more friendly teasing than it was before to me

I know you don’t like what you see
But I’m not going back to how I used to be

  • liberals' problems: women, LGBTQ+ people and black people want the same human rights to choose whether they have sex and/or a child, get married and buy things, or not get attacked by police, respectively. the earth is being destroyed by carbon emissions, people are dying because of healthcare limitations, poor people cannot afford education, and Syrians, Iranians, etc are dying because they're being refused access to a country that's scared of them because of their skin colour when in actual fact the country's citizens are more dangerous. christianity is accepted as a norm instead of one among equal religions. rich people and corporations are seemingly invincible. politics is being hacked and democracy severely threatened.
  • conservatives' problems: no one lets me say faggot anymore. some sjw called me mayonnaise boy. my wife earns more than me and i feel emasculated and i long for a return to the days when women were our slaves. i don't want to spend money on someone else's education, i'd rather spend it on paying off the mortgage on my third house, if it doesn't affect me it's not important. the world isn't running on the principle of whatever makes me personally uncomfortable should be removed, and i don't like it.

Now that is a truly magical headcanon I could believe in.

personal tododeku headcanon compilation post

6.21.17

  • todoroki likes to come up behind deku and hold him by his hips. he will also rest his chin on deku’s shoulder. it’s very soft and very cute. im crying in the club.
  • Once Uraraka finds out about Deku’s crush on Todoroki, she’s always encouraging him to talk to him more, ask for his phone number, ask him to do fun casual stuff with him and their friends. Uraraka is so encouraging of Deku to”just ask Todoroki out already! I know he’ll say yes to you!!” and it’s really sweet.
  • Todoroki actually ends up asking Deku out first! Because he heard from Momo that she heard from Seto that HE heard from Tsu that SHE heard from Iida that “Midoriya has a crush on you. Now you can’t make anymore excuses, Shouto” 
  • When todoroki does ask Deku out, he tries to act real cool about it. Like, super mega chill. and he comes off pretty well but he’s internally screaming and has to flick frost off the palm of his hand behind his back
  • It’s surprisingly easy for Todoroki to talk to Deku about his mom. Like, it still hurts. But he wants Deku to know.
  • they’re soft and sweet in their first year, ridiculously hot and heavy in their second, and by third year, they are down right steady and known across UA as being “the strongest powercouple of the generation” (it is kind of embarrassing when people say that but they secretly love it)

DOES ANYONE HAVE JOB INTERVIEW TIPS FOR EXTREMELY SHY AND AWKWARD PEOPLE BECAUSE AFTER SURVIVING A PHONE INTERVIEW WITH A NICE LADY YESTERDAY THEY SELECTED MY APPLICATION AND I HAVE A FACE TO FACE INTERVIEW WITH ANOTHER PERSON IN TWO DAYS AND I’M SCARED THANK YOU

I think what irks me the most about patriarchal theory is that, when one points out the myriad instances in which men suffer (e.g. suicide, homicide, workplace death, homelessness, etc.), feminists will invariably either deny the existence of these issues or will backpedal and say, “well the patriarchy hurts men, too.” The former claim is deplorable, and plainly so. But the latter is equally wrong. As well-intentioned as it sounds (and often is, as many feminists do mean well), it’s nothing more than a backhanded way of saying it’s men’s fault that they are suffering.

And that sounds an awful lot like victim blaming to me.
