Lately this has been stuck in my head so I was desperate to get it out of my system. The original idea was from this AU by @littlecofiegirl , I loved it so much that I couldn’t help starting to come up with more settings and storylines😫💕
Think I’ll work on more arts of this AU and talk about their relationship in the future✨

THANK YOU FOR 2000+ FOLLOWS🙏!!

So if you follow me, you’ve probably already heard that the ~new and improved AHCA~ is, shocker, completely barbaric.

A disabled activist group called ADAPT is staging a protest at Mitch McConnell’s offices right now. (I’ve marched with them in the past, they do good work.) There are videos coming out of the ensuing arrests right now, and I will warn you right now, they’re horrifying. I won’t lie to you, I cried my eyes out watching some of them. But these people aren’t being dragged screaming from their wheelchairs so no one will watch, so here are a few twitter links.

The protest before the arrests began

Protesters being forcibly removed from their wheelchairs

Yet another example (warning, this one’s loud and really upsetting)

THEY DROPPED SOMEONE


Disabled protestors are often barred from public demonstrations, like marches, and fall under the radar when they do large-scale protests like this. Please see us and hear us when we demand our human rights.

Seeing all this stuff about the Alex Tizon discourse is making me wanna throw up. 

Listen. What they did? It’s slavery. We know. We get it.  But it’s not your slavery, it is a product of the broken system which we have been mired in, one which America has been directly complicit in. It’s an unfortunate case, horrifying, not entirely unexpected, but not exactly the norm. The issue here is that foreigners are trying to put words in our mouth and making this discussion about them instead of letting Filipinos process this and have a proper conversation about it without them shutting us down and screaming BUT SLAVERY!!! APOLOGISTS!!! not only that but they’re deliberately misunderstanding our language and honorifics, they are making things out to be something they’re not.

The system is broken. Any Filipino can tell you that. Yelling at us isn’t going to fix it unless you can somehow fix an entire culture with a press of a button and magically remove 400 years of colonialism and oppression, both by foreigners and fellow Filipinos, which has directly contributed to how desperate and helpless our people have become. It just doesn’t work that way.

But what really pisses me off about this? It’s because we’ve already been silenced before. We have been colonized, mistreated, our culture erased and labeled as inferior, our country gutted for resources and labor and this is still happening, just now its happening on more socially acceptable terms. 

Context and the underlying culture does matter, especially when our culture has already been so abused and erased that we have no idea what kind of culture or history we would have had if it hadn’t been beaten out of us by colonizers for 400 years, even the name of our country, our very identity. To this day we still struggle with our identity as a people, with the colonial mentality and nation-wide inferiority complex instilled in us by colonizers.

Keep in mind that every time you yell at us about how culture doesn’t matter, you’re all slavery apologists, without taking into consideration our views, our culture and the system which contributes to this, and how people are still working to correct it despite the fact that progress will likely not come for another 20? 30? years maybe even longer. Progress is slow when you live in a country where every system is designed against you. We are seeing people from a country which oppressed us, attempting to once again erase our narrative and tell us they know better, perhaps then you can forgive us for being wary of foreigners dismissing our culture and views to propagate their own.

How to do drag king makeup
1. Use a dark color to create shadows
2. Careful not to over highlight
3. Make sure its smooth! And clean
4. Guys have longer eyelashes, but don’t give yourself long girly eyelashes. Light, light eyeliner… Use feather strokes for your eye brows and get a color close to your color (or darker)
5. This is how i did it, different men have different facial hair. To get a more realistic look use fake hair over the shading… Also, if you are only using color use a thin brush and use feather strokes to give a beater texture

- i am a new drag king, i watched a lot of tutorials and saw a few diagrams and then combined them into this
