What are your thoughts if the judge Kennedy retirement rumors are true?

That if they are true and if it happens it’s really, really, really, really, bad. It’s hard to say, Neil Gorsuch clerked for Kennedy so a lot of people viewed picking Neil as a gesture to Kennedy. Kind of like, “hey I’ll pick reasonable people go ahead and reitre, you’ve been thinking about it anyway.” If it worked then we’re going to have another Gorsuch type I would assume and the already conservative court will remain so for decades.

Little bit of hypothetical fear mongering, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg is pretty old, not so old that she definitely won’t be around in 2020, but 2024 could be pushing it considering previous health problems. If Kennedy retired AND that happened it would fundamentally transform the United States for decades to come.

Kennedy stepping down seems kind of likely to be honest. They targeted him because he was already considering retirement, but hopefully it’s just a rumor. The RBG thing is obviously hypothetical, but I don’t think people really appreciate how much the United States could change if all of that happened.

I get the point you're making with the audio but it's pretty old, haven't they gotten better with all that stuff? Besides, it's niche jargon from a community they're not a part of, seems like a mountain out of a mole hill situation.

cisgender = “niche jargon” LMAO

can we see your strike banner? :D

It’s pretty old now – And it’s got all sorts of weird names written on it… Probably happened after Oscar and Morris took it away from me. I don’t know who Joey Barreiro or Andy Richardson or any of these other people are, but I guess they wanted to sign it!

anonymous asked:

does anybody in the fandom unwhitewash photos? i used to follow someone in the exo fandom who edited photos of the members (especially the one who had the darkest skin tone among them, kai i think?) so it didn't look white washed anymore and i thought there'd be at least a couple of people like this here too since the fandom is pretty old (i mean it's not like they debuted yesterday).

Hey anon! 

I’m really glad that you’re interested in B.A.P’s photos not being whitewashed, but I do not personally condone people intentionally ‘unwhitewashing photos’, as I do not believe that the solution to people altering the colour of B.A.P’s skin in photos to suit what they wish to see, is by altering the colour of B.A.P’s skin in photos to suit what they wish to see. 

I can acknowledge that the two aren’t 100% equivalent, as often whitewashing is born from colorism and involves someone taking the image of a person’s actual skin and purposefully misrepresenting it, and unwhitewashing involves taking an unfairly altered image and trying to restore it to as fair a representation as possible, but just because this is a good idea in theory does not mean it is good in practise. Often “unwhitewashed” photos similarly misrepresent the persons skin colour.

So instead of recommending someone who “unwhitewashes” photos, I recommend that you follow and send kind messages thanking them for not whitewashing photos to fansites like aisan, necoBAPGO, Hold On Me, Strong BB, Azure and RealBStyle, and that you kindly and respectfully ask (tweeting is the easiest way) the fansites that do whitewash B.A.P to please stop.

Whirl really does need some more people that care about him in his life.  ;___;  But he’s best handled in small doses…

Tiny room in a 20x20cm wooden box.

I filled it with vintage things I’ve collected, put in wallpaper and a carpet and made the bedding and the tiny bear.

Skyhigh AU by @ming-chan

in which Keith has fire powers and can’t properly control them, so Lance is assigned to Keith when transferring to their school so that Lance can somehow calm him down if Keith literally bursts into flames, because Lance has ice power! 

I’m eventually going to draw more exciting stuff than just this OTL but I just got around to actually rewatching the (pretty awesome) movie

I love old movies for teens. They used to be so simple and yet good

Headcanon that Keith sets himself accidentally on fire each time Lance is cute
