I was re-watching the Search for Tsunade arc, and suddenly realized that Naruto is upside-down while he, Shizune, Jiraiya (and Ton-Ton) zoom along on their way to confront Orochimaru. What’s with that?
I did it. Took me about 6 hours overall, but I’ve written down (to a piece of paper) the name/url of everyone who participated in my Giveaway. There’s like 600 names. (I could have so read to the exams or done something productive XD) Tomorrow, the moment I have time, I’ll pick the winner.
i really just want a fic where Jason and Bucky meet up in a bar, snark at each other for a bit (”hey you died?? me too”), and then decide to beat up some baddies who dropped by for a pint because whoopsie you stopped at the wrong bar friendo
@theversatilist ne t’inquiète pas, je ne parlais pas de toi ^^ c’était encore l’éternelle question : “les lesbiennes sont-elles des transphobes si elles n’acceptent pas le Phallus™ dans leur vie sexuelle ?” et disons que j’en ai un tout petit, petit peu marre de cette foutue homophobie.
“Lifting” as in “shoplifting.” There used to be, might still be, a huge community of “shoplifters” who would brag about their “hauls” on Tumblr. They were usually politically left-wing and so there was a backlash pointing out that this kind of stuff is really really bad for retail workers. Bosses usually retaliate for shoplifting by punishing the retail workers on duty, at least in the U.S., so it ultimately hurts the people on the bottom, not the people on the top.
Which led to a lot of hilarious discourse when lifters tried to twist themselves into pretzels to explain why, well actually, that doesn’t happen (even after plenty of retail workers told them yes, it does) and it’s still necessarily anti-capitalist radical praxis because XYZ. My favorite was when a young teen (I think it was m*meufacturing) tried to say I’m wrong because “it’s illegal and people can just sue their bosses if they try that!” which shows how deeply these people understand what it’s like to be working class.
Ftr, I do think something like “lifting” food and other stuff you need to live can be radical, and sometimes necessary for poor people to survive. I don’t think that’s morally wrong. I think it’s a horse of a different color though when it’s middle- and upper-class people bragging about stealing $500 worth of products from Sephora or Lush, which is what 99% of “lifting” posts on Tumblr are like.
