Governments want efficient technicians, not human beings, because human beings become dangerous to governments – and to organized religions as well. That is why governments and religious organizations seek to control education.

Toronto Pride told Toronto Police they’re no longer welcome to march in Pride in their uniforms or as an institution (eg a police float), but they’re welcome to join in as civilians. The reason for this is the history and continued oppression of LGBT people by the police, particularly PoC. Many Pride attendees feel unsafe or uncomfortable by the high police presence at Pride in recent years.
Toronto Police is now demanding the city pull all funding to Pride ($260,000 worth) until Pride becomes “inclusive” again.
This is what happens when LGBT people try to keep their oppressors out of their spaces. This is why organizations like GLAAD have to accept cishet aces. Because otherwise we have to deal with the backlash of a temper tantrum by cishet people who should have never been allowed in the space to begin with, and lose our resources as a result. This is why I take ace discourse seriously.
You guys… the leak was right. Lars actually died… wow. Steven revived him with his healing powers:
And he turned pink.
Lars now also has powers like Lion’s- his hair is a room that can be entered:
This gives more insight to the origins of Lion. Lion must have just been a dead lion, Rose revived it and it turned pink and its mane became a room that could be entered and have stuff stored in it.
EDIT: By the way, Steven revived Lars with his tears, not his spit. And apparently this is different, hence why they brought an organic life form back from the dead and why his tears had no effect on Amethyst’s cracked gem because they are not for healing, they are for reviving organic life.

yo i love those posts about how aliens view humans or the ones about how humans are scary space orcs so here’s one
imagine if we found aliens but they just? have absolutely no sense of collectivism nor groupthink/mob mentality. they are a race of total individuals, there isn’t anything like “collaboration,” warfare is guerrilla strikes of individuals or small bands, there’s no real government because acting as a unit just ISN’T A THING.
so when humans visit this planet they freak the hell out because how are they so organized? why do they stick together? how do they get so much DONE
and the absolute scariest, most incredible thing about human culture to them is not war or our inventions or culture nor our incredible physiology. no.
it’s fuckin marching bands.
a HUNDRED people all dressed in the SAME OUTFIT, marching in time to a single beat, organized in a grid, playing musical instruments in a certain time measure so that all the instruments work together to form a cohesive whole song, and sometimes they all YELL at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME…
this scares the absolute shit out of the whole race and NOBODY CAN HANDLE IT
OKAY I’VE JUST REALISED WHY I LOVE DAVID HAREWOOD’S INSTAGRAM SO MUCH
I have this headcanon now where james hangs around the DEO from time to time (when there’s no emergency bc he has clearance) and every so often he whips out his camera and snaps some of these amazing photos. j’onn tries to get him in trouble, but james insists that nobody will ever see it and kara seems to love it a lot so j’onn just kind of lets it go and threatens to kill james if anybody ever sees the photos
so then like, forty years down the line, alex and maggie are both retired, kara is still obviously supergirl just more part-time than before, and j’onn knows it’s time for him to retire from the DEO. so he emails james and he says ‘it’s time for everyone to see those photos’
so james releases the photos and a personal essay to like, the new york times or something and it’s one of the most profound pieces of photojournalism ever published. he writes about the humanity behind the special ops groups, the strong friendship and kinship, the loyalty and courage. he writes about how aliens can be more human than humanity itself, and how working together has been and always will be necessary for the sake of our survival and happiness.
james wins another pulitzer and a fuckin nobel prize probably and meanwhile alex and maggie’s kids are like ????????????????? why are you guys hanging out at a secret government organization????????????? why are uncle j’onn and aunt m’gann there with you???????????????????? iS THAT UNCLE WINN AND AUNT KARA AND UNCLE CLARK?????????????????? WHO WERE YOU?!???????!??!?????
So, I just thought to make the list of the cheek symbols of the Queens of Mewni for my next analysis (the significance of these cheek symbols). The first column were the image of the queens, second is their cheek symbols, third is symbolism’s meaning I got from the internet, and fourth is what traits I think you needed to get that symbol in the SVTFOE universe (in short, what the symbol signifies).
SVTFOE Card Suite Symbolism speculation:
Heart - people with this symbol are very lovable and has a distinguishing “charm” that naturally attracts people and come to her side. They prioritize their relationship with others compared to anything else and usually let their heart dictates their action (emotional). They are often found as center of the group
Spade - people with this symbol wields strong and fearsome power, even more powerful than normal and typical queens.
Diamond - people with this symbol have the tendency to take the center of command and shoulder the burden and responsibility by their selves. They dress in jewelry and finery, conducting their selves as befitting of nobility.
Club - people with this symbol have the “common” mindset. They appreciate the values that works for the greater whole of society and hates anything that could destroy the social order they are comfortable and grew up in already.
Color symbolism speculation:
Shades of purple - elegance, nobility, regal
Yellow - bright, lively
Pink - lovely, feminine,
White - harmony, power, everything (as it is combination of all colors of light. That’s why Moon said you must give everything if you want to “dip down”)
