well helped make


1.) undocumented immigrants cannot vote, accusing 2 million plus who voted are undocumented immigrants has no basis or truths behind it.

2.) by making this ridiculous claim that will make liberals rebuke it, it then also makes the calls for auditing the vote and recount also appear as ridiculous and make democrats look like sore losers and hypocritical.

This is how Donald won and continues to win, everything he says his opponents are doing, he is doing himself.

i think one of the ways isak grew during his season is by starting to realize that he can be a positive addition to people’s lives, that he can, in fact, make things better 

things weren’t going well at home for god knows how long, and i can’t help but think that isak took some of the blame for what was happening, because this situation wasn’t something he was able to make better. his mom was going through a very hard time, his parents’ relationship seemed to have fallen apart, his father left, and there was nothing isak could do about it. there was nothing he should’ve had to do about it as their child, at such a young age, but he saw his home become broken, and he saw that there was nothing he could do to fix it. i think isak probably tried as best as he could, by trying to not be an “additional burden” in the household, by remaining quiet and closed off and trying not to add fuel to the fire. but things didn’t work out, and he ended up having to leave home at sixteen, leaving as things still seemed broken beyond repair 

and then you have his friendship with eva, one of his closest friends, and he blamed himself entirely for what happened to her relationship with jonas for over a year. he saw himself as the sole reason why jonas and eva weren’t together anymore, why they weren’t talking, and why the trio of friends they once were had fallen apart. and isak wasn’t innocent here, he did betray eva, but he wasn’t entirely to blame, eva said so herself. but once again, that’s the thing with isak, he blames himself more than he should for things he doesn’t have control over

isak will blame himself, think he’s at fault for other people not doing well. and you see that thinking pattern during the season. you see it in the locker room scene when even tells him he broke things off with sonja, and isak apologizes because he thinks it might’ve made him sad, i’m sorry if because of me you were sad. you also see it in the minutt for minutt clip, when he’s on the phone with sonja, and she has to remind him that it’s not his fault even’s not feeling well, that his mental illness is the reason why he’s feeling that way. he feels a lot of guilt, and sometimes his feeling of guilt is justified because he does mess up, speak before he thinks, and it’s a good thing that he feels remorseful and wants to apologize, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to eskild after what he told him in pride, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to mahdi after he pushed him, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to noora when he thought he might’ve been a little too harsh with her. it shows what a truly good and caring person isak is. but the amount of guilt he feels is sometimes disproportionate, because once again isak would see himself as the guy who can’t make things right, can only make them worse

but i think, or at least i’d like to think that isak has learned to take a step back and see the progress he makes, and realize that messing up is not all he does, see that he can, in fact, make things better, be a good person to others. i like to think he holds himself accountable just enough when he does mess up, enough to apologize and realize he was wrong and learn. but i also like to think that he truly sees what a great friend and boyfriend and person he is, and how it’s a good thing for the people he cares about to have isak in their life. i like to think that isak’s perception of himself is now a far better representation of who he actually is, and the role he plays in other people’s lives



You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer.

Sometimes it’s hard to explain to people how I simultaneously love girls so freaking much but also have internalized lesbophobia that makes it harder for me to view myself in a loving and committed relationships with a woman because of society’s fetishization of lesbians and wlw to the point where being with a girl just feels like I’m part of some kink to get straight men off

anonymous asked:

How do you make galaxy patterned stuff? :o

Hmm well for the most part I just throw a bunch of colors together until it looks good so I really don’t have a set way to make galaxy patterned stuff but I can give you a general way that I usually do to make anything galaxy patterned 

First I start with a medium dark color. Make sure it’s dark enough to have some lighter colors that will blend in with it (at least two I’d say) But also light enough to have darker colors that blend in with it (again I’d say at least two) 

Next I start with the color that’s a shade darker than the base color. I usually start it in some corner or spot like I have here. I usually make it so it doesn’t spread over the whole thing and leave it in the corner/wherever I have it. I also put the next shade darker in this one as well after I put the first dark shade down. In this case it’s black. I just dotted the black around in where I have the dark dark blue. 

Next I add a lighter color in another spot away from the darker area. Then I just dotted in a lighter color than that. Also if you’re not sure how I’m adding in the colors I’m doing it so I’m picking up the pen and dotting it in. So basically just scribble while moving the pen away from the screen. I think it looks better that way but just scribbling on the screen will work too, just don’t make it look too neat. 

This step I just started moving the colors into each other. So extend the areas of color so that they’re running into each other and that they’re not in their separate areas. 

I think I just added a dark blueish purple in this step. You could just extend the colors you already have into the spot where I added the purple, but I think adding another similar color to the one you have makes it look nicer. 

Now I add the stars. I use white and also a more greyish white to make some look brighter than the others. 

To make some of the stars shine I add a darker color to the brightest ones (the ones I made white and not grey) to make them seem shinier. I usually use grey for this but really any color that is darker than the white and lighter than the background could work. I think I tried with a light blue and looked ok but grey usually looks the best. Just play around with some light colors and see what looks best. Oh also I added another light blue (well more of a turquoise teal greenish(??) kind of color) because I thought it would look better. 

lastly just look and see if it looks done. If you can’t think of anything else to add to it and it looks nice you’re probably done. 

If you want I have the colors I used mapped out and everything on another picture if you think that will help, but basically all I do for colors is start with the base, light, and dark colors and go from there. Just add colors as you see fit. It’s easy to change colors on the AC system since you can change the color and have it change on the easel as well so it’s easy to change colors as needed. 


“If you can’t hold it, you take your ass to the men’s room and cry in private on the toilet. Like a man!“— Emerson, Pushing Daisies

This is an incredibly important scene because I believe this is the first time an MCU male superhero has cried. And Matt is not crying over the death of a dog, family member, love interest or cherished friend. It’s not an epic moment during battle or when everything he’s been fighting comes to a head. (Common examples of when it is acceptable for men to cry in media - see trope Manly Tears for more.) No, Matt is crying because he’s fighting with his best friend. Foggy, too, is crying because he’s fighting with his best friend. They’re crying because they care so much about each other and they feel so much. And it’s all expressed. Foggy feels deeply betrayed, but beyond that he’s overwhelmed with grief and worry over Matt. Matt finally is facing the fact that he personally hurt someone that he loved with his actions. And THEY ARE CRYING because of it.

I’m stressing this because crying over these “every day” events is not common for men in media. This is particularly important for Matt, who’s portrayed fairly traditionally masculine - physically strong and mentally stoic, reserved in his emotions. But yet, he cries when he’s fighting with his friend. And the narrative validates both his and Foggy’s crying. The scene is full of pathos and their fight is one of the more painful scenes on a fairly gruesome show. They’re expressing their feelings and talking it out and crying, and they’re not weak or any less badass for it. They are simply human for doing so. 

I believe that these types of portrayals are very helpful in breaking down gender stereotypes, which is helpful for everyone. Men suffer from a lack of close and healthy male friendships where they can express themselves and be emotional, which causes not only them problems but society at large. Daredevil got this right and it’s important.
