Mood: wants to support the groups but doesn’t want to support companies that take advantage of young children and teenagers who would do anything to achieve their dreams and who get overworked, underpaid and abused 24/7

i don’t fully buy the ‘you don’t really understand your field of study if you can’t explain it to someone with zero science background’ thing that gets quoted like scripture in scicomm circles, because there are fields that are just too abstract to reduce in any meaningful way, but also, anyone who claims that their science is too complex for someone who grasp without even trying to explain it in an accessible way is an asshole, so there’s that

Male protectiveness is not synonymous with male chauvinism. It should be encouraged and admired as the wonderful (and yes, at least in part specifically male) virtue that it is, not scoffed at or eradicated in the name of equality.

*This is how it’s used rather than what it means.

The definitions were taken from Merriam-Webster; I chose those I felt most relevant. I decided it’s time for a second advanced English vocabulary list, so here it is. Enjoy! :)

Media: there are no good superhero villains!!!!!11!!!1!

DCEU: *Suicide Squad exists*

Media: WHAT A SHITTY MOVIE, WE ONLY KNOW THE JOKER AND HE WAS BAD THEREFORE ALL OF THEM ARE BAD PORTAYALS!!11!

DCEU: *Gotham City Sirens, the Deadshot Spinoff, Suicide Squad 2 and Black Adam are in the works*

Media: UUUUGH?? WE DIDN’T ASK FOR THESE!!!?!? WE WANT A-LIST VILLIANS LIKE STARRO AND (insert batman villain here, fan cast to be portrayed by a pasty white boy)!!11!

M/arvel: *repeats the same generic villain and his motivation for every movie*

Media: THIS PASTY WHITE BOI GREAT (his plan is meh bUT HE’S GREAT WE SWEAR)

reversing whitewashed edits

it’s actually really easy to edit back in an idol’s original skin tone (or at least undo some of the damage of whitewashing). this also works if you’re starting with an unedited photo/video and realize after you’ve edited it all that the skin tone is a lot whiter

  • lower the curves and brightness
  • add a warming photo filter
  • edit the colour balance to include more reds and yellows
  • choose selective colour and make whites more black, yellow, and magenta
  • adding saturation sometimes helps
  • messing with the levels also sometimes helps

how to tell if it’s whitewashed

  • their skin is literally white
  • the overall tone of the edit is quite cold and blue
  • it hurts your eyes to look at
  • the whites in the photo (sky, buildings, clothes) are extremely white and almost glowing
  • their skin tone is the same colour as the background (wall, sky, etc.)
  • the other coloured objects in the photo are very light or pastel-like (usually becomes pretty obvious if you look at things like the ground or cars, things that you see on a regular basis that are usually dull and darker coloured)
  • their features are hard to make out (usually the outline of the nose’s bridge and nostrils becomes hard to see)
  • you can compare the original photoshoot/video/etc and see that the skin tone has lost pinks and yellows and is noticeably lighter
  • think about humans you actually see irl and think abt what realistic skin tones look like
  • if you’ve never seen a real human irl look at foundations on sephora or smth

ie. there is no reason to whitewash just because you want to brighten a photo. even once it’s brightened, you can play with the photo filter/colour balance/selective colour options to restore someone’s skin tone while retaining brightness in gifs. it’s easy to tell when things are whitewashed when u use tips like these and get the hang of it.

Hello! I'm 25, soon to be 26... Am I too old to get into art school? Some folks told me that I should skip the "school" part and just study it on my own... But I don't really think that painting, drawing, and so on, can compare with photography, for example, where you don't necessarily need an academic training. What do you think?

Bro!! There are people in their fifties and sixties in my year! It is never too late. Be aware of the fact that there will be a heavy concentration of teenagers and you will have to navigate that with maturity and tact and patience. But overall, a great place for learning and growing! U will love. I love.

in terms of personal and artistic growth, you will change more than you ever thought possible

How do you combat the argument that "1st world women" don't need feminism?

With examples and facts about misogyny that apply to women world wide such as pointing out that sexual violence happens to all women everywhere.
