what your really

So lemme tell y'all a story:

I was in 10th grade honours English. I loved my teacher - she was super cool, but didn’t take any shit from anyone. During our time with her, she was going through a rough divorce.

Our teacher had developed this system: if we were good, she’d add “time” to our class, with each “time” being worth ten seconds, so we had to work hard. That meaning, she would give us a free period after we’d built up the exact time that a period extended to be. It was an earned privilege, and we always did our best to try and obtain it. Hell, playing puzzle games and reading was way more fun than a test or worksheet!

We were reading Animal Farm, a book my mom had given to me when I was ten bc she knew I loved to read and enjoyed anything that was thought-provoking. I’d read it then, and again later in my parochial middle school. Living in a big city, public schools aren’t well-funded, and I was lucky to have all my close family scrape together cash for a good education. Needless to say, I was rather familiar with the book.

Now back to the system! Our teacher had implemented a rule that every morning (she taught my first period class) we wood stand up and recite the commandments of animalism. We’d all try our hardest to do it perfectly, lest “time” be taken off our class. But one morning, she was… cold.

My classmates who’d recited before me were all told to sit down and stop reciting, because they were “wrong.” Knowing that, I was confused, as was everyone else. Yet, we all kept trying the same thing. She let the first few people finish. Then, she let people get partially through before she’d utter, “wrong” or something of the sort and deduct our hard-earned time.

It finally got to me; it was my turn. I stood up and started, and was immediately shut down by her. I was frustrated, to say the least. I replied after a second and told her that I was, indeed, right. She muttered for me to sit down. I refused, and by now she’d taken off twenty seconds. Everyone groaned, but I continued to disobey. Eventually, my classmates started telling me to just stop and it turned into yelling at me once I’d lost our hard-earned twenty minutes (meaning we had been halfway to a free period) as I continued to argue. Once we were in the negatives, people were literally yelling obscenities at me. They even yelled at her, blaming her divorce and period. Gross behaivour, mind you.

I didn’t stop.

The teacher said that she was going to call security and have me removed. I replied that it was a-okay with me to do so. I promptly walk out of the room and she followed up by telling me to wait in the hallway. I’d intended to walk to the office myself, but obliged figuring it was no matter to me.

I was in the hallway for about a minute before she rushed out and gently grabbed me by the shoulders. I was rightly confused. She gasped, and stammered out that she had never imagined it would happen. Why was she suddenly not being so ruthless? Why was she flabbergasted? Well, apparently what she’d “wanted” was for us to all fail. That it was a lesson, and she’d have given back the “time” she had removed. It was all about “knowing” what was coming, and how fascism meant that the rules could change at any time, without your knowledge and consent, but you could still be punished for it. She told me that she’d called security, and told them if they saw me in the hall during that call, to excuse me. Nobody had done that before. Apparently, throughout her decades of teaching, not one student had done that. They had all caved and sat down eventually.

You can be that person. In something that matters to us all. It’s not fun, but when has fighting for what’s right ever been easy?

LITERAL ACTUAL FACT. 

Kurogane is both a ninja AND the world’s biggest ninja fan. No matter which world he’s in

Kurogane is also the only person ridiculous enough that they can actually pull that off in the first place.

Good to know! I was concerned but might go see it now

I would encourage it. Elizabeth Banks and RJ Cyler are the best parts of the movie by far

I think, the most amazing thing about Skam is the fact that it gives a lot to think about, whether it is about whose opinion should matter to you the most, what friendship really means, what is it like to be young and why you matter as a person, whether people choose the way they are and why they rather die than being someone they are not, to what it means to feel alone, being sick but not being your sickness,what love really is and means, why you should be youself and get yourself out there, live your life instead of pretending to be alive, what religion really looks like and why we should respect everyone else’s believes.
And all that adressed to the people that need it the most, the young minds that will shape the world soon enough.

anonymous asked:

people who try to make Justice League movie look more like marvel movies by brightening it and lightening the colors, like... what's your point, really? are they trying to say that they're helping Snyder by messing with the color grading? people haven't even watched the movie yet, but they just decide that the colors and lighting are horrible and don't fit the tone of the story anyway.

It always amazes me how people act like They can improve upon these things. Not in a ‘’would be nice if’’ way but in a ‘’I know better than professional cinematographers’’ way.

i like to imagine that clark kent’s search history is mostly normal but then there’s stuff like “improved superman costume concept art” because he wanted ideas

joshua birthday countdown: d-13

sh!t josh says (in english) [ cr. 1 / 2 / 3 ]

there is a big issue regarding boy positivity and mlm tumblr because racism, transmisogyny, lesbophobia and misogyny tend to run rampant and unchecked.

hating women isn’t radical. you can uplift marginalized boys and men without putting down women. you can make positivity posts for mlm, trans men, men of color, and otherwise marginalized men without putting down women.

making posts for men and prioritizing white, cis, straight men and putting marginalized men at the very end of a long list is transparent. it shows what your priorities really are.

saying you hate women and making fun of them isn’t something special or cute uwu. it’s misogyny. it’s ugly misogyny that’s trying desperately to be hidden under the guise of positivity.

if you’re a man you need to listen to women if they are telling you that what you’re saying is misogynistic. you need to listen if lesbians are telling you that you are being lesbophobic. you need to listen to trans women when they tell you that you are transmisogynistic.

don’t cry about how the mean lesbians are shutting down your posts when you’re talking about how gross and disgusting girls are, and wondering how someone could love them.
