Not every white person is a racist, but the genius of racism is that you don’t have to participate to enjoy the spoils. If you’re white, you can be completely oblivious, passively accepting the status quo, and reap the rewards.
If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
so how about a pokemon game where you play as a kid going into team rocket because his parents are high ranking rocketeers or whatever and you have to steal your starter and you slowly start to realize that team rocket is not cool so then you destroy them from the inside
that’d be a damn good game
and at the end of the game you have to decide whether or not to return your beloved starter to the person you stole it from
Dudes, maybe (and I stress maybe) you aren’t personally the problem, but collectively you are. And you don’t get to claim innocence just because you individually (along with every other individual dude) are a tiny piece that creates and perpetuates the enormous problems we face. You may be a smaller fraction than some other men, but you are still a fraction and you are still responsible.
does that look like the face of a man who cannot play the drums for 24 hours straight
i’m getting round to old projects i started. if any of you remember i had this idea ages ago but never ran with it until tonight.
so here are the posters i made :) enjoy!
i hope that one day you feel as happy as you make other people
i hope that you experience laughing to the point of your sides aching
i hope that you will get the chance to completely and utterly enjoy yourself doing something you love or being with people you love or just having fun
i hope that you’ll start to see yourself as someone worthy of those things
So was I “just a friend” to you? Is that all?
Man. How stupid was I to waste two years of my life hoping for a more serious relationship with you?
And we found salad dressing that expired August 21, 2009.
Like. How do you have salad dressing that’s 4 years old? How?
