REPUTATION IS. THE NAME IS PERFECT I DON’T KNOW A SINGLE THING ABOUT THIS ALBUM OTHER THAN THE NAME BUT I ALREADY KNOW THAT I’M SO FUCKING PROUD OF MY FEARLESS MOM SHE IS ABOUT TO GO ALL THE FUCKING WAY OFF AND EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER SAID SHIT ABOUT HER SHOULD BE S H A K I N G
Peaceful mornings at the Skywalker residence. Sorry I was too lazy to google a more legit prosthetic.
EDIT: This is way too late and probably futile, but for the record, this comic takes place in a domestic Earth AU.
Some people make it sound like the eclipse will be somehow brighter than any other sunny day.
The sun isnt brighter but the way the human eyeball interpret lights makes us perceive sunlight during an exlipse differently compared to normal sunlight. And actually the reason eclipses are dangerous isn’t because they’re too bright but rather because our eyeballs incorrectly interpret a lack of visible brightness as a lack of overall light rays. Because it doesn’t *appear* bright, the safeguards of being exposed to too much light doesn’t kick in.
As the sun is eclipsed and the direct sunlight reduces, our brain will interpret it as darkness and dilate our eyes. But its a bit of an optical illusion where we can very quickly begin to absorb unsafe amounts of light without realizing it. Our brain doesnt interpret it as too bright because its focused on the darkness, but our way too dilated eyeball is absorbing way more heat than it should. Before our brain registers “holy shit this is way too bright”, our eye can have absorbed so much heat that it actually burns the eye and cause permanent physical damage.
im so frustrated with how leia was portrayed in the movies. im so frustrated with how leia gets treated in the fandom. blatant misogyny is seen as progressive or empowering, and like, step back for a moment! i know star wars is everyone’s favorite thing, we’ve loved it since we were kids, but even if you love hanleia, even if you love that leia killed jabba, can we admit that han pressuring leia was awful and not romantic? that her repeatedly being ignored when she said she was not interested is not a great quality? that leia being a fucking /sex slave/ is not somehow empowering, that the bikini is a disgusting symbol for how writers felt it was appropriate to treat her? leia was treated pretty awfully in the movies and that’s just the obvious stuff, not even touching on how her perspective is rarely given unless she gets to be “sassy”, when she has many of the same problems and complications that luke has, when she lost her entire planet and was never given time to show her grief? when she found out the man who had tortured her, always opposed her, was present and complicit in the destruction of her planet, was her birth father? leia is a strong character, to be sure, and that’s a good thing, but far too often she’s just pushed to the side, or made into a caricature of whatever is needed for han or luke or anyone to bounce off of rather than her own person. leia organa deserved better and we need to do better and actively be critical of how she was treated.
I’m not kidding, out of hundreds of little papers inside a pencil case that’s what came out today. Isn’t that appropriate as fuck!?
And so I drew Jocelyne from Dumbing of Age today, I almost drew Carla again because why the fuck not? But I thought then about drawing Jocelyne out, and it was settled. I’d like to think Joyce picked out her clothes but she’d probably have a better fashion sense than me. It might be obvious by now, but I like Dumbing of Age
Now, today is the Day of Trans Visibility, and I thought of a way to, uh, “commemorate”… Well, not really. I’m just gonna stop beating around the bush about something here.
Well, this blog is run by a trans person. A girl. A girl who’s so in the closet irl she’s the goddamn queen of Narnia. So, yeah, I’m not sending any photos today, but I’m leaving this here so it’s clear for anyone who reads it
Coincidentally with all this, today sorta really sucked. So I’m ending writing this right here.
A post: *hates on girls for liking boys, bi or straight* *calls all boys disgusting and stupid* *demonizes a group of people for no reason to which everyone on the post blindly agrees without forming an independant and reasonable opinion*
