CORBYN IS JUST A SWEET OLD MAN WHO WANTS FREE EDUCATION, A FULLY FUNCTIONING NHS AND TRAINS THAT RUN PROPERLY.

THERESA MAY PROBABLY EATS CHILDREN FOR BREAKFAST, AND VOTED AGAINST LGBT RIGHTS REPEATEDLY.

IF YOU’RE 18-24 PLEASE GO OUT AND VOTE. IT’S NOT COOL TO BE APATHETIC AT A TIME LIKE THIS.

  • Me: Ok, so I know we lost, but lemme go into the Voting Gaunlet and pick a new team ;v;
  • Voting Gauntlet: *brings up a picture of Alfonse over the final score, with bright red lettering* YOU LOSE
  • Me: ...Why. Why are you like this. Let us grieve in peace
LOL

People will literally reward the mediocrity of men over the greatness women in the same field. Tonight’s episode of DWTS was a perfect example of this. You have 3 incredible dancers - Normani, Simone, and Heather - be in the bottom 3 yet you have 3 incredibly mediocre-at-best male dancers. 

Seriously America. Fucking get it right once in a while. Also Len can choke and leave this plane of existence. 

meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
eu sei que não se ama sozinho
talves devagarinho possas voltar a aprender

Portugal’s song was painfully sweet and I was incredibly touched by it ;u; one of the rare Eurovision ballads that actually made me feel this weak in years- 

@mister-brightside put the vibe of this song into words here and I’m probably going to draw something based on that later ;o; 

12 points to Portugal from France! ♥ I hope Salvador does well! 

anonymous asked:

Why are you anti Hilary Clinton? I'm genuinely curious.. I'm able to vote this year but I'm extremely confused on who to vote for.

When I was in elementary school, Hillary came to our school and did an assembly on early childhood education or something and I remember it being really long and boring sitting there on the concrete floor watching this lady ramble on.  When she was done they took the kids in the first couple of rows and had them stand up so they could shake Hillary’s hand for some reason, and I was in the second row so I had to do it.  She hugged some of the kids and teachers and shook some hands and stuff but when she got to me I was just kinda standing there and then she looked right in my eyes as she let out one of the loudest sneezes my first grade ears had ever heard.  When it was over she wiped her mouth with her hand and then patted me with that hand on my right shoulder.  I’ll never forget the feeling I had deep inside me in that moment.  It was some strange combination of rage, confusion, and disgust and I couldn’t do anything about it because she had already moved down the line.  She never apologized to me and she probably thought I’d forget about it or that I didn’t see her wipe her hand on me, but I still vividly remember that sneeze and wipe to this day.

Tomorrow

For my English followers who are registered to vote, please remember to go and do this tomorrow.

And remember you are voting for the policies and not the person.

We all saw what happened in America last year…..

Your vote counts. Don’t make a protest vote, don’t not vote because you don’t particularly like the candidates. You still have time to research their policies.

i hate the term POC, a primer by me, una chapina irritada

anyway, I hate the fucking term “POC” for many reasons, here they are:

1. still frames white people as the center; it makes them the standard from which everyone else is somehow deviating

2. projects an american framework onto the rest of the world. by referring to someone from the Ukraine (to pick a place at random) as a “white person”, you’re basically saying that the thing you find most important about them is how they might be treated if they lived somewhere else.

 different countries have different ways of looking at race, and the “POC”/ “white person” dichotomy is in no way universally useful or even relevant.

3. is so broad as to be completely useless in describing the experiences of actual people. there is no commonality between the five billion people who fall under this umbrella that doesn’t also include white people. it’s a gross erasure of the diversity of human experience to pretend that my downstairs neighbor Miss. Jerry, Scipio Africanus, and Alexander Dumas are somehow more similar to each other than they are to “white people” of their period

someone is sure to say, “oh, but they’re all affected by racism”, but a. racism affects people in wildly different ways and b. racism in different countries can be structured such that non-white people are still at the top of their power structure.

4. creates the illusion of some kind of solidarity between the 5 billion members of that group, many of whom are engaged in actively oppressing, murdering, stealing from, and fighting against other “POC”. there’s no such thing as pretending otherwise ignores all the victims of repressive regimes staffed and headed by “POC”

Okay: so then what should you say?

The answer is simple: be more specific. In fact, be as specific as possible. Naming the actual group who you’re referring to isn’t catchy for stupid slogans like “support all POC”, but it’s more useful for actual discussion of actionable steps to improve people’s lives. Poor black people and poor hispanic people are impacted by racism in different ways, and that’s before we get into smaller subdivisions like mexicans vs. guatemalans vs. cubans. (A small distinction, but important!)

If we’re actually going to do something about racism, a good first step is to stop lumping all non-white people into the same group.

y'all should know that one of the reasons why seats are empty at sens games is because ottawa is a government town and the phoenix pay system implemented by the government of canada fucked up to the point where some employees haven’t been payed in 18 months and most of us still aren’t entirely sure when/if our next pay check will come in so spending hundreds of dollars on tickets to a hockey game (no matter how much most people love the team) just isn’t a good idea right now
