I think I'm funny, but I'm not. I like comics, good books, television and insomnia, and I really like it when people aren't assholes. Here be DC/Marvel/Image, Star Trek, ASOIAF, TMNT, pointless text posts and an angry, chubby little nerd bitching about society, sexism and privilege.

(9.23.14) — Another morning in Amerikkka. Somebody thought it would be fun to desecrate the Mike Brown Memorial early this morning. I… I really can’t even. #staywoke #farfromover
Here’s a picture of some cops watching the memorial burn although there seemed to be no police at the scene when the fire department arrived.

OMG with the second one, I see what you did there.
my diversity class is going to give me an aneurysm
we spent forty-five minutes talking about how much it hurts to be called a racist
forty-five minutes of white people crying about how much it hurts
to be called racist
rather than discussing the behaviors that might lead to someone being called racist??
i’ve found my favourite
I appreciate fancasts that add representation to works that previously had none, like the HP founders I just reblogged, but on the subject of HP fancasts I want to call into question something that I see OVERWHELMINGLY: Rowena Ravenclaw as East Asian. If you want to fancast that then do so, but question yourself: are you doing it because you have internalized the “smart pale Asian” stereotype? Does it make sense to you to make her East Asian because she is smart? Why do you attribute this quality to East Asian women above all other women of color?
On a similar note, why is your Helga Hufflepuff Black? Does the concept of a maternal, kindly caretaking Black woman similarly make sense to you? Why do you prioritize Black women as caretakers? Question yourself and examine your tacit beliefs to root out how you have internalized racism. Trace your logic. Patronizing stereotypes serve to constrain and police the behavior of women of color.
Idon’t think I’ve EVER seen a Hogwarts founders fancast that didn’t have Rowena Ravenclaw reimagined as light skinned East Asian with straight black hair, and I rarely see Helga Hufflepuffs that aren’t a cuddly-looking mammy stereotype. And I do want to see some Black Rowenas and East Asian Helgas.
This is really interesting and we should take it to heart for more than HP headcanons. Root out this kind of thing in your own original fic writing, too.
I actually really really love the idea of a Muslim Rowena
the Arab world was a massive, flourishing empire in the tenth century, while Europe was basically shooting itself in the foot repeatedly
this was literally dead in the middle of the Islamic Golden Age, during which not only was classical knowledge from the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Indians, Chinese, Egyptians and Phoenicians translated and saved, but incredible developments in science, technology, mathematics, education, health care, literature and philosophy were being made
the University of al-Qarawiyyin, the first university in the world, was founded 150 years prior in Morocco by a Muslim woman???
like how are we fancasting Rowena Ravenclaw without tying her to this??? I never fucking see this, get on it tumblr
Every once in a while I see these two team up and it’s great. I want them to be best friends in a little-girl-slumber-party-friends kind of way. They would bond over things like crushes and hyphenated names.
