Finally saw the WTTM video and im laughing omg. This is what people are claiming to be pedophilia? How many straws are you trying to grasp here lmao
Otabek legit took his gloves off in 2 seconds. It wasn’t even sexual as y'all making it to be (both at anti and shippers). Did y'all even read the manga strip Kubo made? 👀
Sorry but I don’t see sexualization there either.
How bout this.
1) You stop sexualizing a 15 year old kid. Yeah Im calling y'all out. If you see this skate as sexual than that’s on you buddy.
2) look up the definition of pedophilia it’s not that hard Linda
3) This is more of a pet peeve but stop calling those who like the ship straight lmao. Gay AF here. Stop grouping us as a whole with shitty yaoi fangirls.
4) I saw misinformation earlier and buddy. This was planned before otayuri became ‘popular’. Take your white hands off of Kubo you fucking nasties.
5) Why can’t you just accept that westerners and easterners have different pov’s on social and moral views.
5.5) Its a 3 year age gap. Get over it. It’s the equivalent of a freshman and a senior. And if you’re whining about legal stances check out the Texas Romeo and Juliet Law in Texas. That applies to Otayuri if they had grown up in the United States (Saying this cause I remember a moron not knowing how to use Google and entering 'Romeo and Juliet Law’ and thought they were being a smartass).
6) If none of this convinces you and you leave YoI. 👋 Bye bitch.
And yes. I could’ve don’t this without the passive aggressive tone. But Im petty and a tired Asian whose eyes can’t roll farther back oops.

you know, when Marvel did that shitty plotline about Cap being a Hydra agent (aka a Nazi) I wasn’t pleased, but I saw a ton of activity on my dash about it. People were angry. I think it was trending on Twitter.

personally, as a Jewish girl, I was a lot more hurt when the MCU had Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, two Jewish and Rroma children of Holocaust survivors, whitewashed and volunteer to join Hydra. And when that happened, I never saw a single post about it. No one cared, even though the thing with Cap was a gimmick, and the thing with the twins was outright ignorant anti-Semitism.

I understand that Steve Rogers is everyone’s favorite white guy. I understand. but if you care more about that than the Romanoffs, then I’m not sure you understand much of anything.

I see that the same writer who did Captain America is a Nazi has written Magneto is a Hydra Nazi too. and I see exactly one person on my dash posting about it.

now, maybe it’s my own fault for following the wrong blogs. maybe I expected too much of people, to care about things like this, things that affect Jews.

when I made a post about the Cap thing a few months back, I was yelled at by a Holocaust denier and whined at by a white German who was “tired of being blamed” for history, as though history is not our responsibility, as though history is not always right beside us.

so here is my post about the Magneto-Nazi-Hydra thing: the political climate has been harshly anti-Semitic lately. it’s been anti- a lot of things obviously. but my people’s cemeteries are being destroyed, my people’s places of worship and community are being threatened, I have seen more swastikas this year than I have in the past five, and Marvel just put their single most iconic Jewish character in line with their fictional Nazi order. and one fucking person on my dash is talking about that.

I expected better. I don’t know why I expected better. no one in this modern world seems to know how to treat Jews. are we people of color? are we a minority? are we white? are we all Zionists? what are we and where do we fit?

you don’t need to have all the answers. I know I don’t. it would just be nice to know that someone gives a shit, now of all times, about how my people get represented and treated in the media. there’s been so much anti-Semitism in the news lately, maybe you don’t know what to say. to say about the real news or this Marvel plotline or any of it.

so you know. if you even care at all about something that harms my community much more than everyone’s favorite white guy getting a stupid plotline, could you say something? anything? don’t just “like” a post, it’s useless. if you don’t know what to say, reblog this, reblog something else, I don’t care how you do it, just say something. anything.

please. please say something. we can’t drown out their voices on our own.

I’m tired of ~diversity~ meaning the core white people are safe while the poc get cycled in and out and tortured and sidelined, the lgbt characters can’t have happy relationships and the women can’t interact for more than five minutes. I’m tired of white people and straight people and men patting themselves on the back for regurgitating the same bullshit tropes and calling it art.

SANA: It’s good that you’re converting to Islam, then.
NOORA: Don’t turn around now, okay? But are those boys looking at us?

Karolsen? Crime-fighting journalist superhero power couple mentoring and inspiring each other? Ship of the decade.

SuperCorp? A novel and amazing twist on the well-known Super/Luthor dynamic with a canon wlw superhero, a beautiful love story growing from a respectful, loving and supportive friendship? Mind-blowing.

Karamel? The same tired cishet white couple with no chemistry built on nothing but lies, disrespect and abuse, with Mon-El being a slave-owner and a self-confessed misogynist? Literal fucking toxic waste.

TBH the idea that all lesbians are mean bitter assholes who bully people for fun is horribly lesbophobic and it’s so fucked up that so many people on this damn website honestly think this.

On the other hand though, there’s this huge problem with white lesbians who are WAAAY to laid back and forgiving to other white lesbians who perpetuate racism. Often victimizing themselves or crying homophobia to avoid criticism.

TBH I’m not gonna lie, as a black lesbian I think white lesbians do have this problem with being so damn stuck up and haughty about their racist behaviors. It gets almost childish that there’s so many grown women on this site crying about being abused and bullied when all they need to do is say “I did something racist and I’m sorry”.

Every white lesbian that behaves like this (and Jesus it’s almost appalling how many of y'all are like this) do have this faux nihilistic persona and assume they can get away with everything as long as they joke about every valid criticism that comes their way.

So like I get these posts about how it’s lesbophobic to see lesbians as a whole as bitter, nasty bullies. But I’m so damn tired of white lesbians acting like it’s the same way when qwoc feel like they can’t trust them.

Those people who begrudgingly admit that talking about racism in fandom is important only to then be like “it’s not the only reason people like x underdeveloped or poorly written character more than main characters of color” are so ridiculous…

A) We’ve debunked this multiple times across multiple fandoms. If you’re that aware of what “antis” (and ugh why) are saying about a character you love in relation to racism in their corner of fandom, you should know that because most of the people talking about racism and erasure in fandom do it for multiple fandoms and characters.

B) This whole thing where white people decide that racism isn’t the main reason characters of color are disliked and mistreated in fandom needs to stop. Looking at the Star Wars fandom for specifics because it’s one of my mains, if fans of color are talking about antiblack racism or Latinx fetishization, as a white person it is literally not okay to be like “well that’s not right, it’s not really a factor here or it’s not the only one”. It’s rude, dismissive, absolutely unnecessary, and racist as hell.

Also, my god, liking Kylo BECAUSE he’s a villain is still intimately tied into race because Hello, the glorification of white crime is a thing. Saying that you/fandom would still like Kylo if he were black is a lie because this is a fandom that has labeled other black men (Mace Windu and Lando) as villains for legit nonexistent villainous behavior and then used that as an excuse not to create content for them. Or not to interact with the characters.

Please look at how fandom uses genuinely good black characters (Nick Fury, Lando, Finn, Sam Wilson, Deaton, and others) as villains in stories centering white characters.

Look at how Baron Mordo is nonexistent in Doctor Strange discourse despite being an actually complex villain and how the Luke Cage villains Cottonmouth and Mariah Dillard don’t get even a tenth of the love Loki does despite being better written.

The glorification of white crime in media and otherwise (because Bonnie & Clyde) is entirely to do about race and we know for a fact that fandom treats villains of color (and characters of color they decide are villains) way differently from white ones.

If you don’t have experience or understanding talking about race/racism in fandom, I strongly suggest keeping your thoughts to yourself until you can do your discourse without regurgitating the same tired thoughts white fans keep trying to claim are new and improved.

here’s why sana and eva seem to make so much more sense to me, than sana and noora.

it feels like, clip upon clip upon clip, we just keep on seeing noora. there’s an overload of her. to the point now where, it just feels, overbearing. it feels too too much. even when she’s not got much to do in that clip (like today’s fake fake fake clip), her simple presence is just … overbearing. and we can see sana feeling overwhelmed by her too. 

it just feels so forced? there is no need to have so much noora be shoved in our faces so much, yet, she’s there. she’s always there. and you can’t help BUT to roll your eyes and sigh deeply everytime you see her, because, there’s just been such an overload of her. an overuse of her, that, it just feels ineffective now.

noora says she’s dropped out of the bus because sana has. and? so? big deal? last episode she was fuming at sana, for not telling her about william and his new girl, and … now she’s okay with sana, enough to drop out of the bus for her? there’s such a lack of continuity in her character? and so now that she has dropped out of the bus, in today’s clip, she … honestly didn’t even seem that phased? just going about her usual stuff. tying her hair back and munching on a carrot. so, it’s like … well, what’s the point? what’s the point of you dropping out of the bus, that you say you did for sana, and then not even bothering to ask sana why she’s doing it, even though sana, by text, yesterday wasn’t up for talking much, noora could have asked today why she did what she did. but … it’s … just, mute silence? that’s not what “friends” do .. they don’t drop the matter. they keep at it, little by little, they keep asking. keep indirecting.

i’ve already been vocal about my issues with noora this season. she’s invalidated sana, dehumanised sana, said she’d rather be a muslim bc muslims don’t feel pain, she is literally? the definition of a White Feminist™. i’m tired of her. i’m tired of her constantly, always, just being THERE, and just … not doing anything. if this was season 1, noora would have asked sana by now what’s up with her, directly confronting her about it, and talked it out with her. but now? noora just seems so … wishy washy? there’s no … continuity in her character left anymore. i’m tired of her overload.

which is why sana and eva feels so much more organic. because, eva’s been spotting, noticing, since day 1. whether it be the pizza (which, yes, she got wrong), or just worrying glances at sana, that sana notices eva give her, or downright confronting and asking her what’s up, or trying to persuade her to stay. she’s including sana. she isn’t dismissing sana. she’s picking up on sana. 

but it doesn’t feel overbearing. she isn’t taking up sana’s screen time with her problems, unlike noora. she isn’t making it about her. she’s making it about sana. keeping sana the focus. enhancing sana’s plot. asking her if she wants to join them in going places. paying attention. not dehumanising or invalidating sana.

and, eva’s presence feels a lot less gentle, a lot less subtle, than noora’s. it doesn’t feel forced. it’s not loud, it’s silent. but it still translates so much on screen. its where eva is shown to mess up (like with the pizza), but still continue trying. she isn’t shoved in every clip. there’s a gradual continuity, an organic steady growth there, whose slope keeps going upwards. she’s slowly approaching sana more and more, without it coming across as forced and plot devicey, or taking away from sana. 

she’s noticing sana, in the way where she’s the only one who turns her head and looks back at sana walking away, in how she looks guilty, and tries to include sana into the conversation, in how in the bus meeting, she was the only one who wore a colour closely resembling black, as sana did, whilst the others wore white. 

and it feels real to life. because, eva fucks up, but then she tries again, and each time, she tries a little bit more than the last time. it’s a development. its growth.

and it stems from just how familiar and similar sana’s struggles are, to eva’s.

they both have roots that stem from the same kinda seed that was planted, and hence why their lil friendship blossoming feels so much more organic and natural, than sana and noora’s, that just feels … artificial, superficial, and as isak put it: fake, fake, fake. 

Keep waking me up at 5:30am?

Second attempt. First time it got eaten.

I lived in a very ghetto apartment complex for a while. While there I was working grave yard shift, and there was a car that would come at 5:30am on week days to pick up SOMEONE and they would lay on the horn for at least 20 minutes. They would never get out of the car, they would just lay on the damned horn.

I did ask them politely, once, to stop, to go knock, I work grave yard and would like to sleep. I basically got told to fuck off. Ok, you’ve asked for it.

He was driving a VERY pimped out Cadillac. Maroon in color, tinted windows, gold rims, large white wall tires, etc. Obv very proud of his ride. I waited a month, so it wouldn’t be obvious it was me, then I borrowed a paint ball gun from a guy at work. I took the screen off my window facing where he always parks, and waited for the next morning.

When he started laying on his horn I sprayed his car with neon orange paint. He stopped laying on his horn after that. I think I made my point.

……. EVERY THING ELSE

I’m so tired of fighting

My skin color and hair does not, has not, and will not ever represent me.
I am in touch with my black and Haitian roots but none of it defines me unless I say it does.
No matter I do or say people will still see me that way. I’m so tired of people not even seeing who I am but what they perceive me to be solely based on my skin.

I’m so very tired, BUT, too many people (men, women, and people of every race) have fought too long, prayed too hard, and died too often for us to GIVE UP because we’re TIRED! No, this is when we push even harder, because if we’re tired so are they, but now we have one foot in the door ^3^
