people keep gushing over female character designs that “show that you can still kick ass and be feminine and cute!!!” yea ok we all get it now show me a female character whos design doesn’t prioritize making her attractive

I don’t really have much to add. It’s all about the designer’s priorities.
Bolding mine.









Heavy…. heavy,


… There’s a very important conversation to be had there.

If this is being brought up shouldn’t we also addressing the age of the politicians in places of power tho?


This is so much bullshit.

People over 65 often have decades ahead of them. (heck, sometimes they still have half a century ahead of them). And in those decades they run a very high risk of becoming dependent on the health care system and an increased risk of ending up in poverty. Even if they’re lucky enough not to run into any financial difficulties, they’re likely to end up in care homes that are extremely racist, homophobic, transphobic etc. Many LGBT/queer elderly who have spend their lives being out end up forced back into the closet once they live in an elderly home. People with disabilities, who are already likely to be denied health care during their entire life, are extremely likely to be denied health care once they are elderly. This is life theatening.

The only elderly people who have too much power are elderly able-bodied healthy rich straight cis white men. We could do with a few less of those in government. But a LOT of elderly people are living in poverty, dependency and oppression and are silenced or simply completely ignored by politicians and activists alike. And that is incredibly fucked up.

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us — in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
