““Over the last two years, the ADA management team has achieved minimal results, largely because of the lack of an effective program management structure and the absence of a strategic plan that sets a vision, goals, and objectives, including estimates of costs and a timeframe for completion,” the report stated.”—
reading these six words gives me a sensation completely unrelated to the usual feeling of reading a joke; it’s just a kind of placid acceptance. my brain just accepts this and i can’t stop believing with absolute certainty that it’s true
“husbando” and “waifu” are really racist since they are literally just supposed to be english words said in “engrish” (which is racist b/c it makes fun of ppls accents) so dont use them instead consider “anime bf” or “anime gf” b/c that way u can still be anime trash but not racist anime trash ya know???
I'm confused as to what is happening in Scotland? What's this about?
ok so basically we had a referendum vote to see if we wanted independence for a while it was really close and people were pretty much 50/50 on the decision the votes came in at about 45% for yes and 55% for no there was a lot of media bias by the bbc for the no campaign tbh and nows there a few videos of whats to be believed people rigging the vote
now in glasgow unionists are rioting and targeting yes voters and doing nazi salutes and burning saltires theres a chance it could escalate and spread to other towns as well basically look at the stuff we’re reblogging and try educating yourself and please signal boost what is happening!!
pugs are cute until you remember humans are breeding a type of dog that commonly suffers from a plethora of frequent and significant health issues and an inability to breathe properly and is basically just destined to a life of pain
I’m pretty sure my pug is currently running around the house, playing happily with her toys..most definitely NOT acting like a dog who’s subjected to a life of pain. Daftest opinion I’ve ever read.
Your pug may be well but there is absolutely no denying that many pugs do suffer, most commonly due to being brachycephalic. Many need surgery just to allow them to breathe properly. On top of the deformed muzzle they suffer from a list of health problems as long as your arm (and that’s from a site that appears to be pro pug) and do badly in too much heat or cold. They even have their own unique illness, PDE (Pug Dog encephalitis) because we deformed their skulls so much that their brains may no longer fit inside, causing migraine like pains, fits, blindness, dementia, and involuntary movement.
There is a way to fix the modern pug, to revert it back to the way the breed looked many years ago, with a longer muzzle that allowed them to breathe and regulate their temperatures better, and breed only the healthiest of that stock, but the pug as it is DOES suffer because we like the way it looks more than we care about breeding a sound dog health-wise. The pug isn’t the only breed that suffers due to human vanity either. To say that this post is ‘daft’ shows that you know little about exaggerated dog breeds and are willing to disregard the cruelty of purposefully deforming animals for our own gain just because your dog is one of the lucky ones (which I’m glad of. I cant stand seeing them grunting and panting as they have to try so much harder to get a good breath)
Why on earth would we breed an animal that we know is prone to suffering from a myriad of health issues when there are other dog breeds and cross breeds that are much healthier? There is no good response. No good reason to continue to breed ‘unhealthy stock’ as it were.
did you really say fuck the Daily Mail for sexualizing Geishas? Do you even know the history behind Geishas? Is started as basic prostitution, that is why many say the oldest profession is prostitution. Until the 1960 almost all were paid for sex, some still are. So they're meant to be sexually desired. Everything else i agree with though, there are beautiful Japanese models they could have used.
What kind of annoys me about Mulan is how all the Chinese are the same color palette. My sister and I are different shades, and I've seen other Chinese people who are very, very tan and others even whiter than Elsa. There are plenty different shades of skin tone for Asian people, so I don't see why big hero 6 couldn't have been all Asian. Also with the current designs I see so far, Gogo and Hiro are the same color palette too.
Animation uses a lot of visual shorthand that, over the years, has proven obsolete in its laziness and it’s unfortunate implications (i.e. compare the skintones of Mulan, Shang, et. al to Shan Yu and the Huns). Disney still seems confused and frightened to experiment with variations of hue among PoC. I mean, in Pocahontas, all of the Powhatan all had the same skin color. In Aladdin, all of the “good” characters had the same skin tone. In PatF, there’s some variation in background characters (but Facilier is still darker in tone than Tiana)… but they’re background characters, so I’m not sure it really even counts.
When it comes to BH6 and the whitewashing/racebending that went on with adapting it for the screen, it’s definitely indicative of Disney’s usual mindset that they can’t ever be “too ethnic”. I’m sure they think they’re being greatly diverse… but in reality, it makes it seem that PoC are interchangeable and making originally Japanese characters white serves no narrative purpose OTHER than to appease the status quo. Gogo, Hiro, and Tadashi all have the same skin tone… meanwhile, in films like Frozen, it’s shown that white people come in different tones (Elsa, obviously, being fairer and paler than Anna, who is rosier in complexion).
It’s noticeable and pretty disheartening, but here’s hoping to future efforts from Disney at least attempting to do better in this regard.
I have this anon on one of my other blogs that keeps on saying that I should make my own studio because of I want representation. I explained that I don't have the money and that it would take years to do so. They said I was making excuses. How am I making excuses when it's the truth? Help me out here
That is classic derailing and, depending on the intensity of their ignorance, you might want to be careful how you engage.
The marginalized aren’t marginalized because we don’t speak up… Marginalized people from all walks have done just what this trolly twerp is suggesting; people have gone independent in an effort to tell our stories and eke out spaces where we can shine. Webseries, web comics, flash animation, game development, you name it… and fundraising for it all…
But that’s not enough. And it’s not fair… and we shouldn’t HAVE to have “separate but (not) equal” entertainment JUST to see ourselves represented. The fact that we live and exist is reason enough for us to be included in ALL media. Yes, I want PoC in every show. Yes, I want queer folks in every show. I want fat people in every show. I want trans and non-binary people in every show. I want people with disabilities present in every show. And not just shows… movies, books, video games. We’re here. We aren’t going away. We deserve to be seen.
Disney is a huge fucking corporation. It employs people who are marginalized. Are they good enough to work for Disney but not worthy enough to be represented in their work?
You owe this person NO explanation. You owe them NOTHING. They are entitled and privileged and accusatory and WRONG. If they don’t listen to your logical, obvious answers it’s probably because they don’t want to hear them. You’d be better off talking to a brick wall. Proceed with caution. Were it me, I’d probably read them to filth and then disengage. Good luck.
“I would say she doesn’t cling to her wardrobe the way that Crane does,” he teases, adding that when Mrs. Crane hits the mall, her style is “pretty edgy.” So… no Revolutionary War re-enactor costumes? “She’s a much cooler dresser in a way of mixing and matching the modern era with her own.”
katrina’s about to hit up the hot topic clearance rack and come out lookin like
"why be straight and cis when u can be queer and tr-"
hi lets not treat lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends
or we could question and push back against cisheteronormativity. being queer is treated like it’s a negative thing all the time. we hear ‘why can’t you just be straight’ and ‘why can’t you just be normal’ all the time. don’t act like posts like these are the problem, because they’re not.
i’m not concerned about these posts trivializing queer people, because that’s not what they’re doing. i’m more concerned about society consistently perpetuating cisheteronormativity.
"Don’t take ~chemicals~ like prozac, I heard you can get the same effect by eating 19 oranges a day, that’s only 570 oranges a month!!!"
"Yeah I know you have horrible panic attacks but like, have you tried yoga?"
"Yeah I understand depression completely stops you from doing everyday tasks AND that you then feel guilty about that… But you have to just power through it and get on with things as normal!"
The thing is, though, that some of the things like this have truth behind them. Like, yes, depression is a chemical imbalance, but exercise actually changes the chemicals in your brain, which is why it helps a lot of the time. Going outside, even for a little bit, or using a light box can help some. Eating actual food instead of junk does have an effect on your mood. I’m saying this as someone with depression, a shitfuckton of anxiety, and an eating disorder who barely exercises, doesn’t go outside much, eats next to nothing besides starch and cheese, and has been subject to these kinds of comments time and time again; so I’m not trying to say that you just need to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and make yourself better because I get how impossible that is. But what I am trying to say is that even getting out of bed, if you can manage it, will help you. So will standing in front of the window or your light box (or outside, if possible) and eating decent, semi-regularly timed meals. I know that that’s a lot, especially on the worst days, so it’s okay if you can’t. Obviously I’m not your mom or whatever. Maybe try it, though, if you feel a little stronger or braver one day.
the assumptions people make on this post and posts like it. Yes, you got it, every person who reblogged this and I, the person who made the op, we all never exercise, we’re lazy slobs who don’t try and eat nothing but junk food all day. You got us.
Like I get that you mean well but the entire point of this post is that I and many others are tired of the assumption that mentally ill equals not trying. So maybe think for two seconds about the implications of what you’re saying before you tell someone with multiple mental illnesses (me) that “but exercise really is good for you, just TRY it!” Please, I exercise every fucking day, I take my meds, I am a Good Crazy Person in that I do all sorts of things to regulate my mental illnesses. But even if I wasn’t and didn’t, I would still deserve basic politeness from you, which includes you not making assumptions about what my fat ass does and doesn’t do to help my own self.
This isn’t about telling people not to exercise or eat oranges or whatever. Eat all the oranges you want! It’s about remarks that we get that are RUDE and inconsiderate and that we’re all fucking tired of.
SHUT UP!!!!!!! can we just have a post about demiethnic otherkins that doesn’t get co-opted by fucking middle class-elitist people????? you should be ashamed of yourself, you male-overprivileged basement dweller!!!!!! WHY CAN’T YOU JUST FUCKING ADDRESS ME AS “XE/XEM/XYR”, YOU WHITE WOMYN-ELITIST SCUM!!!!!!!! i literally hope you fucking bleed to death, you non-ethnic-overprivileged troll!!!!!! unfollow me right now.
