what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead
and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her
and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people
and what if when a pervy white dude asks the asian woman “do you speak english” while he’s in fucking taiwan, she shoots him in the head instead
what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies
HE’S SO BABY HE CAN’T SCRATCH HIMSELF WITHOUT FALLING DOWN THAT’S CUTE
kakashi runs into any of his students on a date
walks over to the table and they’re like “oh hi kakashi-sensei!!” but he just stands there, staring, like he doesnt get whats going on and never will
Parks and Rec season 5 episode 8 “Pawnee Commons” makes me sad
Leslie is aggressive and not wanting an Eagletonian park designer to help them design a park while Ben is really excited and likes the guy.
In the end, while the Eagletonian guy is genuinely nice, some of the guy’s workers are really shitty and show some awful classism towards Pawnee.
It’s kind of a mixed message because Leslie is kind of portrayed as whacky and paranoid about not trusting him, even though she is perfectly rational in not wanting anything to do with him, (She gives three seperate examples in the episode alone, including the time in the 80s where the entire town of Eagleton said they “weren’t home” so they didn’t have to help Pawnee) and the Eagletonians do turn out to be assholes.
The episode sends the message that people who want to help are honestly always good, even while it admits that the systems behind the individuals can and probably will most definitely screw you over.
Also the entire plot is awkwardly portrayed by all white actors. (all the actors of color are in the other subplots of the episode)
It’s a fucking Nick Furry cosplay cat.
I tried to scroll past it.
I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”
incidentally this is the sidebar of that pitiful creature that was trying to claim I’d “stolen his art” when I posted an image that was clearly a Homestuck panel juxtaposed with a Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog still.
I can’t recommend going to his blog unless you have a strong stomach; the ludicrous claims of art theft are interspersed with nasty, yet uncreative, transphobic and fatshaming drivel.
Which means it’s also worth stating, if anything of yours, anything at all, gets reblogged by him… don’t sweat it. He’s a troll but he’s not a terribly bright one and he seems more interested in mildly annoying as many people as possible than in actually harassing anyone in particular.
Hey hey hey hey.
Tomorrow afternoon starting around 4 we’re gonna trend #Fornever21 in protest of the Black Panther crop top Forever 21 is selling. This is a collab between thisiswhiteprivilege, whitepeoplesaidwhat, and weareallmixedup. Some good examples we’ve come up with so far:
"Colorism *image of a rainbow under it*"
"Stand your ground *image of red stilettos*"
"Stop and Frisk (me ;))"
"Ku Klux Kute"
Also within the tweets, you can include discussion points about cultural appropriation. Start coming up with ideas and stuff now so you’ve got plenty to tweet about tomorrow afternoon. Our goals are: 1) Get the gross ass shirt pulled from Forever 21. 2) Spark a conversation about cultural appropriation.
Get excited. Get pumped. Let’s make a whole lot of noise. Reblog this a couple of times between now and then so come 4pm-ish tomorrow we’ll be ready to trend it all evening.
Less than five hours until we trend this. Remember: the hashtag is #fornever21. “West Coast Panthers” was a nickname for the West Coast wing of the Black Panther Party. Removing this symbol from its cultural context and marketing it to white teenagers as vintage and trendy is appropriative and gross. Can you imagine what they would do to a person of color if we were caught wearing the Black Panther logo?
Later tonight we’ll be posting a collection of our favorite #fornever21 tweets. Get excited!
