Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

I guess I’ve been doing a better job of avoiding the worst of the left here because I honestly didn’t know that many were still insisting that evidence of connections between Russia and Trump’s administration, and of Russian interference in elections in the US and Europe to prop up right-wing candidates, are just elaborate liberal fantasies AND a pretext for the US to go to war with Russia. Because…imperialism. Or the Deep State. Or both.

it’s like when I see comments from people enraged that democrats haven’t prioritized introducing a health care bill that mandates single payer. I’m wondering, have you all not caught up to 2017 yet? Or is this what happens when your primary sources of information are the Intercept and tumblr posts by teenage communists?

Allison Reynolds: pro exy player

As a girl who plays sports, I am such a fan of the girl sport power in TFC. Like, 3 ladies dominating on the court and a lady captain for a coed team? A+, amazing, love it. But I’ve been thinking about it and I’ve realized I really would’ve liked to see one of our fox ladies go pro. More than half of our fox boys go pro, but none of our girls….what’s up with that? Sure we have Thea (who is super rad, don’t get me wrong), but it would have been even more rad, the raddest, to see Dan, Renee, or Allison take the sport to the next level. 

But which of our ladies could’ve/should’ve gone pro?

First thought is Dan. First female captain of a college exy team? Prime pro material! But while Dan loves exy, we know it’s always been a means to an end for her. She needed to go to college, she needed to get out of her home town and have her own life. And she did it! She has a new family and an education and a life of her own! So I don’t think she would feel a dire need to keep playing exy. Furthermore, what Dan seems to love the most is chances to be a leader and opportunities to support others. She doesn’t really care about the spotlight, so her current post cannon track to become an exy coach rather than an exy player just seems so right for her. 

 So Dan Wilds sticks with exy, just not by going pro.

Then what about Renee? Exy has added so much stability to her life and I’m sure she is incredibly grateful for the sport, maybe she would turn pro? But once again something about Renee going pro doesn’t seem quite right, especially compared to her current post cannon future prospects of joining the peace corp. It seems wrong to take Renee away from a future of giving and helping others when her compassion is one of her most distinctive traits, and one that she has worked so hard to cultivate. While I’m sure a career in pro exy would have its own philanthropic potential, I think Renee would be dissatisfied with it, given that it is a career of entertaining others with personal achievement.

So let Renee go to the peace corp. I’m sure she’ll love it!

That leaves us with Allison. Who we know found solace in exy when she was at the lowest point in her life (like Matt after his withdrawal, like Andrew (sort of…let me have this one) in juvy after leaving the Spears), who we know worked endlessly to make sure her exy reputation was her own and not given to her by her family name (like Kevin with his mother and Tetsuji), who we know gave up everything just to play (like Neil, leaving the safety of anonymity to join the foxes).

Now here we have some potential… 

What we know of Allison’s past shows us that Allison is ready to fight for exy, ready to work to get better, and, from what we know of her personality, she takes great pride in her achievements (and opinions). However what we see of Allison in the books and what we know she does post cannon seems almost a little incongruous with her reasons for being with the foxes in the first place. In the books we don’t really see her going the extra mile and, due to Neil’s preoccupation with the monsters, we don’t really know how she is as a player. We know she’s not the best on the team (which, in Neil’s opinion, is either Matt Kevin or Andrew depending on circumstances), nor is she the worst on the team (which is Nicky…he’s trying his best, Neil, ok??). However we sure as hell know she can brawl with the best. 

But is she pro material?

Well, adjusting for Neil’s bias and leaning heavily into my own biased opinion that the fox ladies are killer athletes, I vote yes. I am 100% sure that if Allison Reynolds wanted to go pro she sure as hell could. And, even better, what we know about her past tells me that she WOULD want to…what an excellent fuck you to her parents! 

Supposedly post cannon Allison eventually works her way back into her parents good graces after graduation and begins a career as a designer, but I reject that! At least the part about her sucking up to her parents and also not playing pro exy. The Reynolds’ didn’t want Allison playing exy because they thought it would hurt her image and by extension the family’s image. They thought it best that she continued with the family business and continued to make them money that way. But think about this: pro exy player Allison Reynolds would have incredible publicity. Every game won, every show of strength and skill would improve her reputation. And pro players surely make BANK (Ichirou Moriyama certainly seems to think so). I think a pro Allison would cause her parents to rethink what they’ve done by trying to put their daughter in one small picture perfect box. She’s doing what they wanted for her, but she’s doing it her way all while being an awesome badass lady athlete. A role model for young women everywhere. 

Maybe this is how she earns her way back into her family’s good graces, with her parents realizing they were wrong and apologizing, not the other way around. I’m convinced Allison Reynolds has never apologized for anything in her life. Why would she start by apologizing for what she loves, for a sport that gave her an outlet and a trophy, a reputation and a family? Then perhaps once she’s retired she can go into fashion, creating an excellent line of athletic wear that will likely make up 90% of Dan’s wardrobe and at least 40% of Neil’s. 

So in conclusion, I have aggressively decided that Allison Reynolds should’ve gone pro and anyone who disagrees with me should contact me so we can set up a time, date, and location for our fight.

Oxford University sorry for eye contact racism claim

Oxford University has apologised for saying that avoiding eye contact could be “everyday racism” after it was accused of discriminating against autistic people.

The claim was included in a list of “racial micro-aggressions” in an equality and diversity unit newsletter.
But the university was criticised for being “insensitive” to autistic people who can struggle making eye contact.

It said it had made a mistake and not taken disabilities into account.
The university originally said “racial micro-aggressions” might include: “Not making eye contact or speaking directly to people.”
It described the behaviours as “subtle, everyday racism” which can be alienating.
‘Discrimination’

But Twitter users criticised the newsletter and academics argued the guidance was “trivialising racism”.
David M. Davis tweeted: “This is just discrimination against autistic people. One sign of autism is avoiding eye contact. How dare Oxford be so insensitive.”

In a series of tweets, the university replied: “We made a mistake. Our newsletter was too brief to deal adequately and sensibly with the issue.
"We are sorry that we took no account of other reasons for difference in eye contact and social interaction, including disability.

"Oxford deeply values and works hard to support students and staff with disabilities, including those with autism or social anxiety disorder.”

Emeritus professor of sociology at the University of Kent, Prof Frank Furedi, said the newsletter’s authors “need a reality check”.

This woman,
Told me I didn’t belong in her family,
Because I wasn’t of her country,
Because I was darker than her.

She ignores how,
Her country birthed the darkest people on the planet,

I should have told her,
I am not your country’s question mark,
But it’s exclamation point.

Thanks for tagging me in that Major Arcana quiz! I’m going into work right now and can’t make a proper post, but for those interest, Mordred Surana landed the “Judgment” card.

“The Judgment Arcana, in tarot, is associated with realizing one’s calling, gaining a deep understanding of life, and and a feeling of acceptance and absolution.”

That’s the most Mordred card I’ve ever heard tbh, at least in expressing his core values/traits. Well done, me. Well done, quiz. :D
