#steve is like what #someone’s playing galaga #wait i don’t know what galaga is #shit what if it’s important #is it a sport #is it a band #is it a board game #like monopoly #(thank god they still have monopoly) #god i’d better just look #it’s behind me isn’t it #there is nothing behind me #GOSH DARN IT 21ST CENTURY
I like how many parts of the movie you realize Thor, Steve, and Loki really do not know what the fuck is going on.
I just want a movie with Thor, Steve and Loki attempting to figure out this century. LIke, no action, no adventure, no explosions. Just wifi.
And then every so often Tony shows up and just rolls his eyes as Loki screams at the toaster, demanding for it to surrender his breakfast.
You guys really just want an Avengers sitcom, don’t you
I had a completely abhorrent thought regarding the persistence of golliwog dolls in New Zealand. It’s probably going to upset a lot of people to express it, but hopefully it will do so in a way that forces some perspective on a cultural conversation that seems to go nowhere every time it surfaces.
I wonder if the majority of people who defend golliwogs as “just dolls” would stand for a line of dolls based on murdered/kidnapped little white girls to be sold, collected, passed down through generations, and generally be seen as cute and quaint.
"The new Maddy-Lin McCandy! Get her before she disappears!"
Haha, cute, right? It’s just a doll, right? No one could possibly see it and be confronted with a painful history, right? And if they are, they should just “get over it” and “stop being so PC”, right?
This example may strike you, dear reader, as going too far to make a point, but extremity may be called for to drive home just how messed up it is to ignore or defend the origins of the golliwog. It’s a relic of a dark period of colonial history dressed up as something cuddly and worth reminiscing about, and it’s tasteless (at best) to try and handwave that as no big deal.
If you feel perfectly at ease in your defence of racist caricatures but find a satirical invocation of Missing White Girl Syndrome shocking and wretchedly insensitive, think about WHY you do. It may feel like working muscles you never knew you had, but it’s a worthy exercise for just that reason.
On the other hand, if you think the order to remove a load of golliwogs from an airport gift shop after a black person objected to them can be likened to Nazi book-burning, like the general manager apparently said once (http://nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10747706)?As the cool kids are saying these days: #welp
repeat after me
if a bi, pan, or asexual person dates someone of the opposite gender
IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE STRAIGHT
fuck off with this ‘opposite gender’ bullshit
this isnt primary school anymore.
cats are not the opposite of dogs. genders dont have reverses of each other. just say ‘different’ and save ppl like me the shitty feelings of not having a place in the idea of binary genders.

As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.
