Adulthood is literally just a cycle of spending every waking minute wishing you could go to bed until it’s actually time for bed and then it becomes the absolute LAST thing you want to do because going to bed is the thing that makes tomorrow happen and then you have to do it all over again
it really should scare anyone with human decency how #DACA is being put to an end by trump. over 28,000 immigrants are going to lose their jobs over this xenophobic and racist decision… and before anyone whines about how these immigrants don’t deserve jobs because they’re not “real Americans”,, dreamers have been in America since they were children. DACA literally stands for
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. imagine being a child who comes into a country where you have to immediately adapt to learning a new language, get used to a new culture, and get to work a few years later right at the legal working age. these children have went through hell and back just to make a living in america, and it’s very disgusting how the trump administration wants to take that all away just because he wants to make america white again.
there is no valid reason why trump wants to take away DACA other than blatant xenophobia because immigrants are not “stealing” your fucking jobs. that bullshit claim has been debunked a million times by professional economists. the #Dreamers caused no harm to this country, they’re just young immigrants who want to make a living for themselves and their future families. DACA has helped over 800,000 immigrants achieve their goals and dream of becoming successful in a different country. only racists who want to “purify” this country with whiteness would be against such a helpful program. anyone else who knows how to sympathize with other humans would know that this program is well needed.
What really sucks about the way Joss Whedon writes is that he sort of has this idea that if he writes about women being strong and confident, that is all it takes for women to appreciate his work. Like, even if the villain constantly belittles a woman for being a woman and people are constantly harassing her and sexualizing her, it’s okay because she’s strong and she can take it.
The biggest difference between Whedon’s version of Wonder Woman and Jenkins is that in Whedon’s version Wonder Woman is A Woman. She (and the audience) must be constantly aware that she is a Woman, that she is Sexy, that she is overcoming incredible odds because she has the terrible disadvantage of Being Born A Woman.
Whereas in Jenkins’ film Diana simply exists. There are some points made by other characters about her being a woman, like when Steve won’t sleep with her because he feels it’s improper, or when his secretary says, “Oh yes, put specs on her, like after that she won’t be the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen”, but Diana is almost completely unaware of her status as a Dreaded Woman. Her excitement over a baby? She’s literally never seen one before. Her little makeover seen? Spends the whole thing looking for something comfortable she can fight in. She basically never mentions the difference between men and women, never even says that women are better or whatever because she was raised by them.
Joss Whedon would have never let Wonder Woman forget she was a Woman. She would have constantly been making comments about it, wether positive or negative, as would everyone around her. In Whedon’s heyday that might have flown a lot better, but now women seem to be a little sick of grrrrl power. They just want power. They just want to exist, both on screen and in life, without constant reminders that they are Women and that they must pay for that at every turn.
asking questions to clarify things that could be miscommunications
asking questions as opposed to arguing, just to keep provoking further answers and explanation from the other side even if they’re really really wrong & bad, and then leaving it at that without making statements urself. like jsut let them stew in their own answers they said. kinda makes em feel like a fool sometimes if ur dealin with a real bastard, and u dont have to go thru the trouble of engaging.
Every horror game protag:*Meticulously goes through the dilapidated maze-like rooms and hallways of the Horror House, braving its murderous inhabitants and various traps, looking for puzzle pieces that’ll open all the locked doors which will lead even further into the house and to even more puzzle doors*
