Friendly PSA: if you’re white and can’t contain your racism, you should probably get off Snapchat 🤔 — On the left, Paige Shoemaker, a Kansas State University student, was let go by the school after posting blackface to her Snapchat account. On the right, police officer Melissa Adamson is out of 2 jobs after posting a picture with the caption, “I’m the law today nigga.”

Lady Midnight snippet

“I’m here,” he said, and went over to pick up Tavvy. Tavvy put his head down on Jules’ shoulder, looking sleepy, and getting paint all over Jules’ t-shirt. But Jules didn’t seem to care. He put his chin down in his younger brother’s curls and smiled at Emma.

“Forget it,” he said. “I’m going to take this one off to bed. You should probably get some sleep, too.”

But Emma’s veins were buzzing with a sharp elixir of anger and protectiveness. She could almost taste it in her mouth. No one hurt Julian. No one. Not even his much-missed, much-loved brother.

“I will,” she said. “I’ve got something to do, first.”

Julian’s blue-green eyes narrowed. “Emma, don’t try to —”

But she was already gone.

Emma felt the anger uncurl in her stomach again, but this time it was directed at Mark.

“Jules?” Tavvy asked, sounding nervous, and Julian passed a hand over his face. It was a nervous habit, as if he were wiping an easel free of paint; when he dropped his hand, the fear and emotion had gone from his eyes.

“I’m here,” he said, and went over to pick up Tavvy. Tavvy put his head down on Jules’ shoulder, looking sleepy, and getting paint all over Jules’ t-shirt. But Jules didn’t seem to care. He put his chin down in his younger brother’s curls and smiled at Emma.

“Forget it,” he said. “I’m going to take this one off to bed. You should probably get some sleep, too.”

But Emma’s veins were buzzing with a sharp elixir of anger and protectiveness. She could almost taste it in her mouth, like a bitter copper penny. No one hurt Julian. No one. Not even his much-missed, much-loved brother.

“I will,” she said. “I’ve got something to do, first.”

Julian’s verdigris eyes narrowed. “Emma, don’t try to —”

But she was already gone.

Yeah. ┐(ಠ___ಠ)┌

hey so how come, like, after “Bubble Buddies”, when the whole fandom starts shipping Steven and Connie and there weren’t a whole bunch of indignant posts like “Excuse me fandom, not everything is romantic, platonic relationships are IMPORTANT how dare you ship these two characters romantically when platonic relationships are so important”

but after “Rose’s Scabbard” tons of people feel the need to shame people for shipping Pearl/Rose because “not everything is gay”, telling people they’re seeing things that weren’t in the narrative and how bad that is to be trivializing platonic relationships which are so super important that people only seem to care about when they want to shame people for liking a queer pairing

like, how come the possible hetero romance between two 12 year olds is seen as more valid and uncontested than a possible queer romance between adults (or rather ageless aliens)? How come the latter got the lion’s share of the ‘shame on you’ finger-wagging?

Don’t get me wrong, I think Steven/Connie is a really excellent pairing and platonic relationships ARE certainly very important and I don’t think people have to view Pearl/Rose or any other pairing as romantic if they don’t want to. What’s irritating to me is that some people feel the need to make big self-righteous posts about it, like they have to put their foot down to stop all the big bad shippers from making everything gay, like they’re making some bold statement. What’s irritating to me is that I very very rarely ever see anyone EVER bring up the ‘platonic friendship is important’ thing with a hetero pairing.

I guess what I’m trying to say is why does it upset people so much that people ship something they see as friends? Why can’t people just be like “Oh, I see them more as friends so I’ll just blacklist the ship and move on”? Why do they have to make posts trying to shame people and take the moral high ground just because they’re so enlightened and awesome to not see a queer relationship where other people do? Why is it so threatening that some people might ship something they don’t personally see? How come seeing a relationship as romantic suddenly means you don’t appreciate platonic relationships too and that maybe you just enjoy this one as romantic? Why do people always jump to the conclusion that if you ship this particular ship its because you’re a mustache-twirling cartoon villain who hates friendship?

Guys I think I’m being lowkey hacked again

It may just be because I’m a tad sleep deprived, but every now and again a new blog will appear on my dash and i’m certain I didn’t follow it. There’s a whole bunch of One Direction posts that I’ve apparently ‘liked’ but I sure as hell know I haven’t. Is someone just sitting on my tumblr somewhere occasionally liking a random post about Louis Tomlinson, or following blogs with names like “political sex kitten” in the hopes of driving me slowly up the wall with paranoia?? Is this Harriett or Caleb playing an incredibly long game?? Is it the government?? Or has my tumblr finally become sentient? Help.

If “what is bad about being buddy-pals with fascists“ is actually a question you think it’s appropriate to ask then you should probably get off the internet and get acquainted with what fascists have done and are doing in the real world.

I don’t think being a mutual with a fascist is giving them material support or anything, but fascism isn’t something that’s exactly open to rational debate. Part of the problem with lesswrong style discourse (to be broad) is this peculiar line of thinking that everything can be debated. While we might be able to debate the effects of fascism or fascist organization in the 21st century in a rational manner, fascism has no coherent political or philosophical principles by which we can debate it. Fascism, as a serious political movement, will not tolerate us through peaceful debate, and fascists have no intention of debating the merits of their platform.

Fascism, as an historical movement, came to power through force. It gained the support of the masses through the exploitation of their misunderstandings and neuroses, not through rational discourse. To anyone with historical literacy, it is absurd to suggest that you can “debate” fascism. There is nothing to debate. Fascism is not rational, and that is precisely its appeal.
