we so polite

Reminder to those enraged and engaged in this fight: Activism cannot be your singular focus; you can burn out, you will burn out, and you will burn out F A S T. Don’t feel guilty if you start to feel overwhelmed. Don’t feel guilty if you need to turn off the news, get off social media, or stop talking about the current political climate. It’s exhausting. Take a little time every day to decompress! Do something fun, make sure you have a hobby. Read tarot cards, knit or crochet things to donate, work out, read read read, make art (god, please, make some art, that’s gonna be one of the first things to go). It’s exhausting, fighting for your rights and liberties. It’s not going to stop being exhausting. But if we quit because we can’t keep up, we’re tired, we’re overwhelmed, then they win. And we can’t let them win, because this is just the start. So take a break. A little bit, every day. Treat yourself well and then get right back into the fray. Take care of yourself while fighting for your neighbor who might not be able to.

One of my fave things about 2016 was definitely Brian Molko’s intsa activism

I also love how he low key indirectly dragged the people in the comments who called him a “social justice warrior”. You tell’em Bri

(also the comment section in general on their instagram went pretty batshit about it, which is why he sadly left. Bri pls come back we need you)

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Parental leave for 18 months? This is going to be so good for parents and babies. Plus another 3.4 billion for indigenous infrastructure, health and education!

Okay I usually don’t give a fuck about federal budget shit, but this is going to directly help so many people I cry.

Oscar Nominated Features 2017: Zootopia

I’m going to start off by saying that if this wins, I will not be disappointed at all. I already mentioned that I thought Moana should win, but Zootopia is a fantastic movie. 

It’s the most impressive bit of world-building I have seen in years, and maybe ever seen. And with talks of a sequel, I’m getting really excited to see more of the world that we only heard about.

Zootopia is a perfect example of how well Disney can hold a multi-generational audience captive. It’s a fine example of them not taking themselves too seriously, but taking their craft seriously. It’s the kind of movie that you go expecting to have fun and leave having had more fun than you could have imagined. 

More than that, it’s a movie that needed to be made. There’s a lot of bad feeling in the world, especially now while we’re so divided politically and socially. It was so important to see how even the most well-meant warning can be misconstrued and dissolve into dangerously charged segregation. But there is a danger that the movie accidentally creates, and it is inherent in the way it sends its message.

remember how trump supporters/third-party voters loved to bring up trump’s isolationist foreign “policy” as a reason why he would be the a better president than mean old “killary”?

well, in a speech he held at CIA’s headquarters on jan. 21, your new orange fascist president openly informed the CIA, in front of several TV cameras, that he may start another iraq war just to steal their oil

and no, i’m not exaggerating, that’s literally what he said:

Trump also asserted his oft-stated belief that the United States bungled its exit from the country by not taking Iraq’s oil. “If we kept the oil, we wouldn’t have had ISIS in the first place,” Trump reasoned, saying that was how the Islamic State terrorist group made its money.

“The old expression, to the victor belong the spoils,” Trump said. He added, “We should’ve kept the oil. But, okay, maybe we’ll have another chance.” -  source [x]

so great job guys!

clearly trump was the lesser of two evils

Sans! He was there the whole time!! Why didn’t anyone ask for his help?

He’s being a jerk again. Big surprise. I bet he wouldn’t have even helped Frisk xD

anonymous asked:

so do u think they make the harry vs ot3 thing worse until the 1d brand dies?

That would be in their best interests. They would prefer all of Harry’s time and attention be on the solo career they can profit from, and they’d prefer the One Direction fan base not have to split its attention between four solo artists as well as the band. They’d prefer our time and attention focused on one thing, conveniently the thing that will actually profit them: Harry’s albums.

And it’s been working out that way so far, hasn’t it?

That Awkward Moment When He Says, “You’re So Sweet,” and All I Can Think Is: “Nah, Man. I’m a Velociraptor.”

Velociraptors and I have faces for the movies.

We have learned how to open doors: We scrape talons

across the knob, sneak out middle of the night

leave fading indent in the bed.

He calls asking where I am;

I’m in your blind spot.

I’m watching heat radiate off you

as you stumble through the woods. I am attracted 

to movement, meaning I only chase something 

when it runs. Like a velociraptor, 

I will not text you back.


He kisses me like he doesn’t even know I have teeth,

like I don’t mouth his neck carotid and catastrophe.

He thinks the parts of him I’ve swallowed are pieces

he’ll get to keep. When he looks into my eyes, I try to seem

like a warmblooded girl, but I am a fucking velociraptor;

I trace my lineage back to birds.

He doesn’t understand how I can be so lizard-distant,

why I don’t want to kiss him outside the restaurant;

chalk it up to Cretaceous differences.


Squishy mammal boy, I don’t hunt in packs;

I have hooks for hands and very limited patience for bouquets.

If you wander into my woods,

don’t be startled when you call and I don’t answer.

Check your periph; don’t ignore that rustling.

You might have time for one last “clever girl”

before you die.


-e.c.c.

Supremacy

You took the ones you did not fear
And left the rest to die.
Yet now I watch you “march for life" -
Is that the real White Lie?
