Who else hates Donald Trump on this fine July every day

Final preview for my @risquezine​ piece

Y-you should conciser buying the zine. It’ll be worth it for sure!! ╰(◉ᾥ◉)╯!!

Honey, APH Greenland does not have an official colour scheme nor additional sketches of them. That’s just my colouring of a drawing that was in Nordics button set. It’s MY colouring, not Hima’s, and until official aph Greenland someday maybe comes out, it’s just my imagination what the colouring could be like. Also, my Greenland doesn’t go by gender pronouns. 

 Why are you all so pissed about a design that’s not even officially introduced? Himaruya may surprise you! He may also withdraw from the character entirely since the controversy, or start from a scratch and create a new one. There’s many many many countries that doesn’t have a character yet.

I’m sorry your lack of presentation in media and what your culture has have to put up with in there, but this whole series is based around stereotypes. You can’t just incriminate a single, simple Japanese man for creating a comedy series. Just, leave him alone, he can’t change how the world is.

As a person of culture, what about making content yourself? A series based on native Americans and their lives. Then you can be sure it’s not racist or stupid or whatever. Start it and make it big, change the world yourself. Don’t wait others to do it for you. You have the advantage as a person who knows their stuff.

How would you feel if your entire nation/people were represented by a sole white person??? I need physical (rather, digital) answers

I wrote articles about the need to recognise gays in the military for our student paper back in 1993. I can't believe that nearly 25 years later we're still discussing this shit

Dear Mr Trump, Fake Potus Extraordinaire,

This is not, and never has been, a question of “allowing” transgender people to serve in the US military. As with other members of the LGB*T*+ community, transgender people are already there, serving in many different roles and functions.

This is a question of whether or not they can do so freely, openly, with respect and feeling safe from harassment and without fear for their careers. Your tweets have just made all of that less likely.

So this Twitter pandering of yours to a prejudiced, uninformed, selfish, and frankly, shitty part of your electorate is just that. Pandering and distraction. Do not make it out to be anything else.

Also, f*kc you!

Sincerely,

Just a reminder that I’m an Adult™ and if that makes you feel uncomfortable feel free to:

  • unfollow me
  • ask me to unfollow you
  • block me

I won’t get mad or anything. It’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and secure.

fat Black women look good in ALL colors

the signs as i’ve known them irl

Aries: you’re feisty and confident and loud but also ridiculously naive and quite childish. your smile is blinding and you’re fiercely protective of your friends and would go to the ends of the world for their sake. i like you. although i wish you’d learn to read situations and be more tactful, i admire your sincerity and honesty. you’re refreshingly genuine.

Taurus: you’re so hard on yourself, it’s as if you’ve put a boulder on your chest and refuse to take it off. you don’t need to handle all this pressure, but you put in on yourself anyway, and are incredibly stubborn about it. it’s okay to relax and enjoy yourself. being alive is not a punishment. you’re so much happier when unrestricted by worries; know that you don’t need to handle everything alone.

Gemini: you’re intelligent and very talkative with those whose company you enjoy. you want someone who’ll click and can engage you in conversation, whether intellectual or random. you’re so used to changing yourself to suit other people’s tastes that you aren’t sure how to be yourself anymore; to you, all of those personalities somehow seemed like genuine sides of yourself.

Cancer: you’re always so friendly and welcoming and kind with everyone, but at the same time, you always felt very distant to me. part of me feels like i wrongfully infringed on your personal space by trying to get closer, even though that’s not the case. from time to time i feel like i can see glimpses of your true feelings, but it always disappears back into a facade just as i notice.

Leo: you’re kind and helpful– and cheerful, to some extent. you really like attention. some of you are lowkey about it and some of you have zero subtlety about it, but regardless, you want to be recognized for your hard work and efforts. you feel overshadowed by people who are better than you and want to improve yourself, but may feel lost sometimes as to how to get there.

Virgo: you’re so stubborn, hardworking, and determined; i’m not sure if it’s frightening or annoying. it’s also a huge pain in the neck to argue with you because you firmly believe that your views are The Right Ones and completely disregard any arguments against it. you’re organized and neat and intelligent. i understand your feelings to some level, but i wish you were more open-minded.

Libra: you’re not a bad person, but you’re not exactly morally upstanding, either. and that comes from your ability to see situations from all sides. it’s a bit infuriating trying to ask your opinion on things because of this; you see and understand all views and end up confused and unable to decide. you’re good with people but tend to hold most of them at a distance to avoid getting hurt.

Scorpio: you have a wild sense of humor and are rather sarcastic, but it’s mostly there to cover up your insecurities and feelings. you’re passionate but try to keep it subdued (and it works quite well, if i’m honest). it’s alright to have feelings. i don’t know exactly who hurt you in the past, but you don’t need to hide your emotions behind a quirky persona. it’s okay to let it out and just be

Sagittarius: you’re very sarcastic and funny and sometimes just plain mean on the outside, but you’re so sweet and gentle and kind on the inside; the contrast always makes me melt a little. you’re quite intelligent and try to see the bright side even if it’s hard. you don’t like sharing personal information or revealing how you feel easily. you genuinely care for your friends and want to help them.

Capricorn: i worry about you. you’re hardworking and diligent but somehow lazy at the same time. you’re also hard on yourself and have deep insecurities and strong feelings about things that you hide rather than open up about. you’re bitingly sarcastic and i love your sense of humor. you’re also incredibly kind to others, which can hurt you when others don’t show you the same kindness.

Aquarius: flighty. you’re kind and compassionate on the outside but hold a deeply-rooted bitterness within you. i dislike how you always blame everyone but yourself for your own problems, especially when they could be easily resolved if you simply lightened up a bit. part of me wonders if you care more about global and societal issues because you don’t know how to deal with the personal ones. 

Pisces: you’re passionate and emotionally fragile, though experience has taught you to hide it behind walls. when you love, it’s with full force and zero inhibitions; that’s why you get hurt so easily. you’re not easy to understand and people have ostracized you because they misinterpret your words or actions. i feel sorry for you, but at the same time i know that misguided pity is the last thing you want.

times have changed

i will forever point out the ways that dick and jason have similar temperaments and the bizarre way that DC and fandom have treated them so differently and buried those similarities and think they’re so different from each other, or think of the similarities as positive for one and not the other. 

look. dick grayson is the angry robin. end of story. 

he’s the one with the uncontrollable temper (he calls it that himself, even). he’s the one who flies into a rage and does things he regrets afterwards. that’s one of his flaws. 

jason also has a temper, but despite DC and fandom retroactively blaming him for his death due to it and thinking of him as the angry one, it’s not his temper that caused problems with bruce or made him act out as robin. it’s not his temper that makes him kill. he makes deliberate decisions based on a set of morals. he owns those choices.
