after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.
My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”
i’m just wondering why the faded red chinese characters on the prison-like wall is telling people to wash their herbs and fruits and vegetables properly. is this supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactic? or am i missing something here?
the words on the wall behind her literally say “保持清洁 苹果 葱薑 葡萄 白菜 橘子 番茄 香菜 地瓜” like, keep clean, apples, green onion and ginger, grapes, chinese cabbage, mandarins, tomatoes, coriander, sweet potatoes
i for one am glad that they’re drilling food safety and hygiene into white people?? really goes to show how considerate us east asians really are ya feel me
Skyler is brilliant
It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?
- upset stomach and vomiting
- muscle aches
- chronic fatigue
- hormonal problems
- irregular menstrual cycles
- lowered immune system
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations
it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “
I’m sorry, friends, but every time I see those pictures of Tom Hiddleston from that Gothic horror movie, all I can think of is this Horrible Histories sketch.
Because that all-black outfit is the outfit of a man who has a wolf named Lion.
WHY WOULD YOU OH MY GOD
yall overreacting it’s just an anime

Both are widely accepted in the DC area, from what I gather. As they should be, what with there being so many military personnel, tourists, and diplomats.
I was thinking of something that happened back in Ohio, when I tried buying alcohol at a hockey game. I’d just turned 21, but hadn’t gotten to renew my driver’s license yet since I’d just gotten back from college. They said they couldn’t serve me with my expired under-21 license, so I pulled out my (valid!) military ID as backup, and showed them how the dates were the same on both. AND STILL THEY WOULD NOT SERVE ME, because I didn’t have a valid state-issued ID.
Meanwhile, another girl in my class tried using her passport to buy booze in PA, and the people at the store turned her down for the same reason! The best part is that the store in question was WORLD MARKET.
My guess is that passports and military IDs are both legit as far as the law is concerned in most places, but individual establishments have their own protocol—like, the POS software requires a driver’s license/state ID number to complete the transaction and there’s no way to tell the software qhen those don’t apply.
This is my favorite thing
this is so very british
oh my god it gets better when you understand exactly how far he went
The last post always amuses me because when I first saw this story it didn’t say where the kid was from and frankly England (even Manchester) is the closest of the places I assumed he might have flown in from.
Somehow, the word “Robespierre” appears in only two documents on my entire hard drive.
One is the PDF of that Sieburg
fanfic biography, which mentions him enough for everything, I suppose.
And the other is in a conversation I copypasted with thegoodlannister where we were mostly making fun of Avengers badfic so I have NO IDEA WHAT HE IS DOING THERE.
