reasons the Voltron trailer has me shook:

  • Blue is so attached to Lance that she didn’t even immediately open up to Allura? Like it took her time (we dk how long exactly but enough for Allura to start walking away) before accepting Allura as her paladin 
  • All the new Galra females?? Aka we get to see Keith’s mom probably!!
  • How skillful the paladins are with their lions. Like their moves are way more suave and badass somehow
  • As we saw Lance will pilot Red, and I hope this is metaphorical to show us Lance’s more angsty side (compared to Blue which was a really friendly and happy lion that mirrored Lance in the team)
  • Shiro opening his eyes––what if he wakes up and finds himself on Earth again, found by the Garrison?????
  • Keith leading Voltron––which, okay, Keith piloting Black and Allura piloting Blue wasn’t my thing™ but I’m starting to like the idea to see the parallels. Like the original pilot for Black was Zarkon who was Galra, and now Keith is piloting it and he’s Galra too
  • Lotor not being a major part of the trailer and I’m hoping that he’s not the same as original Lotor and that he switches to fight alongside the paladins in this series

a white man goes to the Mosque in London, England  and drives over Muslims with his truck yelling “kill all Muslims!” (according to multiple witnesses), kills a man and injures others, and this is how the media covers it:

and then the dubious use of quotes that makes it seem like it’s so sarcastic


“Going back to the question of whether I am a feminist or not: Yes. I think the core of that question is do you support equality for women, and of course. It’s funny that it even becomes a touchy or sensitive thing for people to announce formally, it’s kind of fucking ludicrous. There is not a question in my mind. There are, of course, places and spheres where I wish I would have done more to make those actions back up the title, but I think that’s something that as I grow and I age and I get a little more agency within my society, I’ll always try and work towards that.”
