You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.

J: so did you hear feminists are going after games now?

N: Fuck off!

Me: …

J: Yeah they’re basically attacking games now cuz of they take advantage of women.

Me: Yeah and it’s a valid attack!

N: Tch, no it’s not, they’re just going after games now because they want to strengthen their theory and they need something else to bitch about, just sitting around like housewives because they can’t find something to stick up them. *points to GTA on the screen* see, there’s women in games.

Me: he’s playing as a man. They just want a chance to play as a woman and fair representation.

J: you can play as women in most games.

N: yeah and there are loads of female characters!

Me: yeah and they’re objectified…

*five minutes later*

J: the radio on this game is talking something about strippers and putting something between their boobs, haha.

N: Heheheheh.

Me: *SHOCKED AS FUCK SILENCE*

The cultures of people of color are either packaged for consumption or called upon to fill cultural and spiritual voids of Eurocentrism.

That shit blew my mind and made understanding cultural appropriation way clearer for me.

In young children’s movies, romantic love is constructed as a special and incredibly powerful domain of life that is separate from same-gender friendship and other relationships. While same-gender friendships are fun or funny, heterosexual love is portrayed as powerful. For example, falling in love can break a spell (Beauty and the Beast), cause one to give up her identity (The Little Mermaid), be so special that it is off-limits even to a powerful genie (Aladdin's genie cannot make people fall in love), or lead children to disobey a parent (all of these and Pocahontas).

SO IMPORTANT TO ME and extremely relevant to my life (considering I have a lot of baggage from my formative years because of heteronormativity).

There are many teachers who could ruin you. Before you know it you could be a pale copy of this teacher or that teacher. You have to evolve on your own.

The witching hour, somebody had once whispered to her, was a special moment in the middle of the night when every child and every grown-up was in a deep deep sleep, and all the dark things came out from hiding and had the world all to themselves.

In the old days, a con man would be good looking, suave, well dressed, well spoken and presented themselves real well. Those days are gone because it’s not necessary. The people committing these crimes are doing them from hundreds of miles away.

It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.
