And Lena Dunham’s comment wasn’t just disrespectful to people who have been in situations were they needed an abortion, but especially disrespectful to people who have needed but were denied an abortion.
Been wanting to say this for a long time so here we go:
Can we please collectively stop making fun of the “meth fandom” or w/e the fuck nomenclature we’re using to describe real people who finally have a space and community to talk about their substance use? Like I’ve seen posts lump this part of tumblr in with literal fucking neo-nazis and if that doesn’t strike you as fucked up i don’t know what else i can fucking say to you.
I’ve even seen this shit from leftists. Like how can we recognize that capitalism is built on the exploitation of labor and mass disenfranchisement of working class people - and then turn around and mock people who use stimulants to cope with the godawful hardships of that life? If you can’t recognize meth users humanity, then what the fuck are you even fighting for?
I have adhd, but I still abuse my stimulants because my body literally cannot produce the amount of labor necessary for my survival. Thousands of others do the same. We’re not that different from the people on here using meth. Everywhere ~drug users~ turn, we’re denied the chance to talk about our own experiences in our own fucking language. We’re denied the chance to find our own community and engage with it on our own terms. Especially us women who use. Why propagate that shit here? What do you gain by mocking us and people like those in the ~meth fandom~? Who are you helping?
And i know this probably describes only a sliver of my followers, but I hope it’ll reach further. Because honestly? Some people on here need to step the fuck off.
I’ve never seen a post on my dash condemning this phenomenon (which is often treated like a joke, like it’s not about you know, real fucking people), and that’s fucking bullshit. I’m not saying no one’s said this before, but I sure as fuck haven’t seen it. We can do better. We must do better.
First digital art I’ve done in about 3+ years, I think. Still figuring out a bunch of things (it took me over an hour to even set up my tablet at all and actually get drawing), but here’s a test sketch of Lyn!
It’s 2016 and a Muslim man just got kicked off Delta airlines for speaking Arabic to his own mother on the phone before the plane took off. Because ugly racist white people were uncomfortable hearing someone *gasp* speak a different language than their own. Disgusting.
do you ever think about Jim making the Sir Boast-a-lot video
Like writing the script and noting down in brackets “angry face” “psycho smile” “mocking tone” “more sarcasm here” and putting himself in front of the camera actually making all of those facial expressions omg
Then editing it with movie maker and choosing with great care every single special effect and cursing because the programme keeps freezing or the sound of the fake thunder doesn’t come in time with the fake rain holy shit can you imagine it
You can bet your ass he locked the fucking cab’s doors after Sherlock climbed in because there was no way that fucker could escape the result of four days of hard work and a hundred coffee cups
