privileged planet

Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.

A/N: Oh my me, I decided to post early! No one answered what time, so I decided to do it at 9:45 and now I’m debating on changing the time from 10 to 9 because it seems every time I schedule a post it deletes my gif. Let’s see if it deletes it when I post it. The majority of you(except for the lovely four who answered) are no good, but this post is for #Team Lucky: Here. (Since Lucky ain’t getting much love this Chapter).


Anything you can do, I can WILL DO IT 10X BETTER AND WATCH YOU SUFFER!!


Kylo “looked” for you. “Did you find her, Commander?” The Prime Minister rung out from the bottom of the staircase. Descending it, he replied, “No, I would hope the tour you gave us was sufficient because I checked everywhere and she was nowhere to be found.” The two men continued to engage in conversation about your whereabouts before you interrupted them. Clearing your throat, they looked up at you. Gliding your hand down the staircase, you made your way to them. “Gentlemen.” You gave them a curt nod. “Ambassador, where did you run off to? We’ve been looking for you for about an hour!” The Prime Minister concerned voiced laced with fallacy. Sauntering closer to him, so that you were now face to face, you said. “Now Prime Minister, you know it’s rude to ask a lady what she does in her privacy.” you arched your eyebrow and his lips parted slightly. You watched as his lips went dry. Kylo didn’t like the look that you were giving. You were only supposed to give that look to him and him only. He clenched his fist. “Don’t you have something to ask her?” Kylo’s mechanical voice boomed loudly in the Prime Minister’s ear making him jump. “Oh and I contacted the General and he’s sending over a new written contract that will definitely please us both.” You said first. Kylo was shocked. Why did you call the General and give in so quickly? And when did you have the time to do all of this. Timing wise you got yourself cleaned up very quickly, not to mention he was the one that handed you your dress in the refresher and he wouldn’t hand it to you until his lips were on yours once again. “Oh, well. I guess, would you like to join me for dinner?” He asked with his arm held out. “I won’t lie, I’m feeling very hungry after all that has happened today.” You linked arms and threw a glance over your shoulder at Kylo.

Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating, we need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations but who speak for all of humanity for the indigenous people of the world. For the billions & billions of under privileged people who will be most affected by this. For our children’s children and for those people out there who’s voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight, let us not take this planet for granted I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

anonymous asked:

Might I ask your opinion on the recent drama surrounding Markiplier and his unwillingness to address his past transphobia?

All I know about Mark’s alleged transphobia is in regards to his makeup challenge video and I don’t really see what he did wrong. Now I’m fully aware of the potential issues surrounding that video; namely its potential to perpetuate the idea that a “man” in makeup is something to be laughed at but… I’m not seeing it. The only jokes Mark makes in the video are about how the shoddy application of the makeup looks funny.

But perhaps that’s all irrelevant and the fact that a small percentage of his audience took away that the humour of the situation came from him simply wearing makeup is what makes him indirectly transphobic. I’ve been outspoken about intent vs outcome before but even after diving deep into the comments I didn’t get that impression either. Hell, for YouTube commenters its almost unnervingly civil.

Now I get that I’m literally one of the most privileged people on the planet so I have almost zero authority to define oppression but hey, you asked. Personally, from this one video, I think you could just as easily argue that Mark is ableist - given that he jokes about how hard it is to apply makeup with only one arm.
