Yo someone's trying to tell me Hussie is a racist and hates disabled people but has absolutely no evidence. What do I do?

You gotta decide for yourselves whether people in the year of our lord 2017 should be judged entirely by the words and thoughts and ideas they put out into the world years ago in different life stages. Like. This isn’t a problem that’s going to go away. Increasingly now the history of people’s entire life journey is accessible via some social media snap shot in the wayback machine or some ancient chat log sitting on someone’s hard drive out there. We don’t all start from the same place. A lot of us start from positions of privilege, from systems learned from parents or other family or institutions with power over us that influence our way of thinking when our brains are first developing the capacity for empathy and understanding. 

And we grow. And we create. And we experience things. And we talk with people. We make friends. We read feedback. We listen to some and we disregard others, and years later, some (but by no means all) of what we disregarded we might think about again and realize was good feedback and helpful advice. 

Our opinions change. Our understanding of our own privilege changes. Our understanding of media and propaganda and narrative and power structures and justice change. Our biases shift. Our politics change. Our worldviews are shaped by our conversations and our experiences and the things we take to heart and the things we lock outside. 

Hussie used to interact heavily with the fandom. There is so much text from him out there saved in archives that has been pored over again and again and again by people with axes to grind, people with their own agendas, people who feel wronged and hurt and ignored by someone they maybe once respected and looked up to. 

Anyone with that much text over that long a period of time has something fucking problematic out there waiting to hang them, I guarantee it. Back in 2012 the r-slur and the a-slur were common slang used by elementary school kids, let alone ppl frequenting the various rancid asscracks of the internet. Then awareness campaigns took root and opinions and language shifted for the better and suddenly a lot of text written without that mindfulness started looking really nasty, didn’t it?

We as a society are going to have to make some hard decisions in the very near future about how much rope we need when we’re eyeing those gallows for people we feel wronged by. How much someone’s opinion now means when their opinion five years ago might have been the exact opposite. How much good faith to extend to people who grow and change and understand their younger selves had some Bad Opinions about the world, but can’t erase the words they said, and have to live with them for the rest of their lives because people looking for ammunition can find it in ample supply. How much someone’s actions now count for weighed against their words in another fucking life. 

There are quotes out there where Hussie said some stupid shit. There are a million words of Hussie quotes out there. I don’t know how old you are, but if you’re an adult, I can almost guarantee you that you can go back some number of years and remember a version of you that you’d be terrified of the internet finding today.

The dude gave us one of the most queer-positive, transformative and engaging pieces of media of all time. It wasn’t perfect and he wasn’t perfect because nothing and no one is. The queer community is always so goddamn hypercritical of its prolific creators, in part because we’re desperate for the things we want and never get and it’s so frustrating to find people who *almost* give you what you want – and god knows the mainstream media isn’t listening, so where else do we have to turn but inward? We’re a stymied, frustrated group desperate for representation on all sorts of underrepresented axes of oppression and no one story is ever going to satisfy everyone. But Homestuck was so big, so expansive and meant so much to so many - of course there’s a lot of bitter disappointment out there. 

How much rope do we need to hang someone? How much history do we need to build a gallows out of plank by fucking plank to feel morally justified? 

It’s up to you.

Saurbury, Saurustan and Sauratlas

Based on Brachiosaurs, and serve as the ‘semi-legendary’ line on Islas Azul. 

Saurbury are known to gather in impressive numbers in vast plains, causing the plain to be seen no more. They like to created stampedes, which can be felt and heard miles away, and are rather mischievous, often causing havoc. A group of Saurbury is called a borough. 1.6m (5′03″) tall. Name derived from saurus + -bury (an English suffix given to fortified cities)

Saurustan occasionally join boroughs of Saurbury to keep an eye out for danger. They mostly spend time in groups of 5-10 individuals (known as a nation) raising young Saurbury, while singing beautiful songs to calm them. Their gender ratio is 12.5% male and 87.5% female, and only males can evolve further. Females don’t evolve because it is impossible to raise young once they do. Each year after breeding season, males migrate to a certain area where one is chosen to evolve. 4.0m (13′01″) tall. Evolves from Saurbury at Level 42. Name derived from saurus + -stan (a Persian suffix meaning ‘land’ or ‘place of’, given to several Central Asian countries and provinces) 

Sauratlas is the tallest known Pokemon in the Cyare region. It’s impressive height at 13.9m (45′07″) has unusually made it part flying type, due to the fact that it feels like it’s soaring the skies with a bird’s eye view of it’s surroundings. Clouds even form around it’s head. Sauratlas are mostly solitary, as a group of them (known as a world, containing up to 3 individuals) would cause too much chaos due to their sheer size. They are also very few and far between, due to the extremely specific conditions required for it’s evolution. Evolves from Saurustan at Level 70 (males only, perhaps holding a specific item, in a specific area, during a certain time period, just to be annoying. Maybe your entire party needs to be full of male Saurustan as well, to make it more annoying). Name derived from saurus + atlas.
