I di d it, I finally fucking did my dream aniME SCREENCAP REDRAW oF ALL TIME
i hate small talk
tell me about how lonely you are or tell me about why you keep waking up in the morning or talk to me about your mum’s eyes and your dad’s laugh. I don’t care about the weather and you don’t care about how my job’s going.
if we just met and u try and tell me how lonely you are i will turn 180 degrees and walk away
Talk to me about anime
Admittedly, I would absolutely find this hilarious if I didn’t know the simple fact that the smiling woman is the Prime Minister of Denmark!
The PM and Obama have met lots of times now …
… which is probably why they’re seated next to one another. I mean, come ON, obviously it’s not some random man-stealing bimbo that was placed next to the President of the United States.
But the media loves to pin women up against each other, so for good measure here’s a picture of all three smiling together and one of the two women alone…
Please, signal boost this and stop the idiotic scenario where these two intelligent and powerful women are being reduced to petty women that care only about the attention of a man - even if it is the President of the United States.
The more you know. Now, go forth an have an AWESOME day!
Kinda sad that this post is even necessary.
read an amazing article on how the reception of Michelle Obama’s “disapproving look” reinforces the stereotype about the “mad black woman”. It’s pretty annoying how people simplify her and put her in a box
yo broski calm down.
kankri and cronus aren’t misogynists, heck they’re far from it! cronus hits on both genders and gets turned down, and there’s actually a good reason why kankri doesnt see why feminism isn’t important.
if you see, the troll race, on both beforan and alternian cultures are ruled by a female, so assuming females have more roles in that race than males. we know porrim is a feminist, but we don’t know what she’s being a feminist about in her culture (i’m supposing about her caste having to watch the mother grub, i dunno), but kankri is more than willing to talk to her about it in a calm, adult manner.
i’m no good at explaining these things but this thing right here explains it way better than me for kankri.
and as for cronus, he’s just being a teenager with a lot of anger within him. Remember, he’s dualscar in another life, and we know eridan was pushed until he got majorly pissed. we see that ampora’s have a lot of anger within themselves that they can just RELEASE on anyone, if pushed to it.
this thing right here can explain cronus as well. really, it’s one of the best explanations why cronus isn’t the ‘worst character in homestuck’.
I like cronkri because from what we see of them, they can actually be pretty good friends, cuz cronus listened to kankri and kankri listened to cronus. really i like vantas/ampora pairings in general, so i’m not all picky.
I’m sorry you feel negative about how i draw amporas, but being rude and insulting is not the way to go.
i’m not mad, like seriously, its fine to not like cronkri, but insulting me and many others who like it isn’t what you should do. but i hope you have a good day, mkay?
( yo sorry if this is all scattered, i’m no very good at explaining things )
lmao come on, kankri and Cronus are TERRIBLE PEOPLE. Kankri dismisses porrim’s legitimate concerns because he’s an asshat who uses ~~social justice buzzwords~~ to feel superior to people and Cronus touches people when they expressly ask him to stop. It’s okay to be invested in them anyway, they’re fictional, no ones actually getting hurt.
but, op, right now it’s sounding like you legitimately don’t think these things are unacceptable traits in like, actual people, and frankly what the hell dude.
i usually ignore that kind of reply but i just choked at the “porrim’s legitimate concerns” part
did you really miss the whole point
porrim lives in a society where females are privileged
porrim is a parody of mens rights activists, not of feminists. i’m amazed by the fact that you could miss that
OH my heart! You’re too sweet! I’m gona burst or something. I hope someone you like makes you your favorite snack soon.
Well, I really love you. I contradict myself a lot and complain though. But I’m glad you like it then friend!
You know what makes me the saddest about Lilo and Stitch?
When she gets kicked out of the dance class, she’s the only person we know for sure is native Hawaiian in her age bracket in the class.
There’s Myrtle, who is white, Elena who is white (f she’s the blonde one), Theresa who’s background is unclear, and Yuki who is implied, based on the name and the large Japanese population in Hawaii, to be Japanese.
She is taking a dance class of a dance traditional to her people.
And she is kicked out primarily because a white girl, Myrtle, is bullying her.
How fucking sad is that?
This always got me about the movie. I always
IN THE FACE AND EXISTENCE
Also, the hula dancing runs in the family, as we find out in the sequel that her mother was a dance champion. It’s clear in this scene that the deaths of her mother and father are still fresh in her mind and I think the dancing reminds her of her mother and happier times. Maybe they practiced together frequently? Idk, it’s just the vibe I get. That Lilo is there to do her mother proud, rather than to make friends and socialize like the others there.
Her face says it all. Look at how happy she is!
Everyone who liked this, everyone who validated this, you need to unlike it right NOW.
As a Native Hawai’ian, I have a problem with this post.
A fucking big problem.
First off, Hawai’i is massively diverse. Massively. Almost no one is pure Hawai’ian. The speculation that Lilo is at all pure or the only part Hawai’ian is laughable. There’s a very very slim margin that she would be at all. Secondly, just because it’s “not confirmed” doesn’t mean those girls aren’t. There are thousands of Japanese-Hawai’ian girls. Thousands, and thousands more of even more mixed races who are Hawai’ian. My sister is a shade away from blonde, and as pale as snow white, and she is just as half-Hawai’ian as I am - even though I look more “authentic”. I know many beautiful Hawai’ian girls with clouds of red hair and creamy complexions from mixed bloodlines. If you want to get “authentic” and go off of Lilo’s appearance, to us locals, she looks half-Asian. She looks definitely hapa at best.
It angers me beyond all reason that this has reposts, reposts from people who don’t understand the Native Hawai’ian culture, much less the culture that sprung from it which envelops our islands. You are reposting blind ignorance. Who are you to decide who looks more Hawai’ian? Who are you people to assume our culture and that this girl takes it more seriously than the others? Because she gets a backstory?
The amazing thing about my culture, MY culture, is that hula opens its arms to all. All children here are welcome to it. It is passed on to them and their blood does not dictate their passion nor their eligibility. “Lilo is there to make her mother proud, rather than to make friends and socialize”. Do you have any idea what a halau is? You don’t, no, none of you do. You have no idea what a halau is. A halau is your family, a halau are your friends, your only social circle when you are fully dedicated. My mother IS one of the queens of hula who trained under Maiki Aiu and she still talks to her hula sisters daily. They were part of her life. It isn’t enough to just hula, or learn it, and put blinders on the sides of your head. If you don’t live it with your hula sisters and brothers, then your story is nothing. You go through motions and you tell no stories.
Don’t try for one moment, to make that scene out like it was Lilo being bullied by a white girl. Yes, Hawai’i is still being raped by the ideologies of white appropriation, but do not for one moment think that these girls may not be Hawai’ian. Do not think for one moment that you have the right nor the knowledge to sweep onto the internet and start reposting like a fucking idiot about a culture and mixed bloodlines and races you don’t really understand aside from “the white man hurt them”. You damage people like my sister, like my cousins, all equally as proud and maka’a’inana as I, simply because they don’t look like me.
You have no right to use this scene as commentary, because you have not even a shade of an idea of the damage you do with it.
I like the beginning of this post. The essay at the end was kinda unnecessary.
The essay at the end was the entire point of this post. The essay at the end was written by someone from Hawai’i, who knows the Hawai’ian culture and was laying down why the OP was completely, totally wrong about what they assumed about Hawai’i.
Would pay anything for a song about that by Elton John.
The card that accompanied my birthday present <3
must be a husband and some sons
I mean, think what you want, but I’m definitely sucking all four dicks.
Best blunt explanation EVER. I’d like the post again just for that comment, but tumblr won’t let me like it twice, so reblogging’ll have to do.
The awkward “I don’t want to annoy you but I really like talking to you” stage.
