How long until the 15 year olds take over this post with their garbage

I’ve stopped being 15 years old long enough that I have the privilege of occasionally saying something that is not garbage so let’s try to pull it off.

What you are trying to express with this comic is problematic. The idea that tumblr or more specifically social justice activist don’t know that these people exist is not only false (they do), but feeds into a shallow narrative of what social justice is and how it should relate to the individual.

As the name implies, social justice is social, the opposite of individual. As an individual you are entitled to your opinion. You have no problem being called faggot? You’re right. Want to try your bindi on your white friend that looks supercute in it? There is no social justice police going to stop you from that. But the moment in which you don’t recognize that no matter what your opinion is, and no matter what your feelings on these issues are these actions harm your group at a societal level, then you are wrong. Not as a matter of opinions anymore, but as a matter of facts.

Cultural appropriation (bindi/dreads), microaggressions (faggot/racial prejudice), lack of representation (transexuality awareness) and claims of “reverse sexism” are hurting minorities, no matter what anyone’s opinion on these issues is. Research out there that shows that all the problems you are tackling here harm at a societal level the same people you have depicted here as not affected by them at an individual one. 

As an example, I have OCD, and I really do not care about people who say things like “oh I’m so OCD”. I understand that they mean no harm to me, I understand that their ignorance is not their fault, and I understand that is just a word. I don’t care about all this. BUT when this illness keeps being trivialized as a character quirk a lot of bad shit happens at a societal level: people getting told they should just get over it, people who fit the diagnosis not recognizing that they have it because OCD is wrongly represented, people being denied accommodations for their disability because OCD is not so badand so on. Did this ever happen to me? No. It didn’t affect me as an individual (yet). But it does affect me society, and it is my duty as a member of a larger group to take a step back, to realize that not everyone is going to be as lucky as I am, and realize that my individual thoughts and experiences do not matter when other people out there are suffering from the results of that harmless ignorance I could easily ignore based on my individual experience. And after I’ve done that I need to call out that ignorance, because the moment in which I justify that ignorance on the base that as an individual, I am not affected by it is the moment in which I become the oppressor of the same minority I belong in.

Kudos to you for this excellent response. The distinction between individual issues and societal ones is really important.

The Abbott Government is restricting the speech of the following:

- Academics: Academics can now have funding cut if Abbott Govt deems their work “ridiculous.” Normally, there is independence between politicians deeming which academic work is…

so basically someone made a redesigned version of Comic Sans and holy shit I never knew I could warm up to something that resembles Comic Sans like this

I’m not a typographer so my eyes aren’t trained for this but I think I might use this from now on

yes

A heroic effort

It looks really good to me.  A lot cleaner.

Neat.

Programmable Tattoo System

What do you do when you want a tattoo but don’t want the commitment of permanent ink? The moodInq system is a breakthrough in tattoo technology, using a skin-safe proprietary E ink encapsulated pigment system that lasts a lifetime but can be configured to display any design (or none!) to suit your mood.

So how does it work? We have partnered with leading physicians and technicians in the cosmetic surgery industry to implant the E ink grid, called a canvas. The canvas can go anywhere on your body and be configured to the size and shape of the body party you’d like to ink. After a short healing period (usually 2-3 days), you can begin using the moodInq software included with your kit to change your canvas to display the tattoo you desire! Found on ThinkGeek.

YOU COULD HAVE A MAGIC TREE TATTOO THAT CHANGES WITH THE SEASONS

This is INSANELY cool. Until someone hacks the software and you end up with an ad for Viagra on your arm.

we are the future

I was about to draw something warm and sweet for mamma Frigga when those HotToys TDW Loki photos came out…and I was all like “OH GOD NO…NONONO YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES BUT NO! NOT READY YET!!!!!!! Wait what was I doing and …who am I ???!”

 THAT FACE  THAT OUTFIT  THAT HAIR. EVERYTHING’S SO BEAUTIFUL! If only I could just drown myself in those soft fluffy curls (☍﹏⁰)

……

Now I can crawl back in my corner and cry peacefully.

I’m really in love with Resident Evil right now and that’s all.


I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

After all these kid!Thor pics I felt like doing one with kid!Loki. Imagine Loki getting killed in Thor: The Dark World and being reborn as a child. ♥ Thor would try to love him even more and do anything to keep him satisfied just to avoid Loki becoming the same asshole again. :’D
