I'm triggered by words like "trigger," "warning," "life," "car," "bike," "foot," "if," and "a." Can you please not use them? If you do, that means you are just rude and you don't take other people's views into consideration.

Taking the piss out of people’s triggers literally makes you the scum of the fucking earth.

I would like you to properly sit yourself down and ask yourself why it bothers you so much that we try to be accommodating for people? Why it angers you enough to send anonymous messages? 

Why you don’t think people deserve a safe space where their triggers are respected?

Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

lordbape answered:

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

Oh you do not know what you just got yourself into.
Because they have a far more interesting relationship dynamic, because Aang treated Katara like she was a reward for his hard work as the Avatar, because Zuko needed the kind of emotional support Katara could offer (Crossroads of Destiny, finally seeing Iroh again, fighting Azula), and he understood that she wasn’t just some wholesome, good, wonderful person all the time, that demons need to be fought.
They balanced each other out, fire and water, destruction and healing, they were the obvious, passionate couple that, if Avatar had been the show that Korra tried to be, would have happened. They have a far more interesting development arc, which was beautifully executed over the course of the three seasons, whereas Kataang seemed to jump back and forth between Katara blushing for every five times she acted completely disinterested.
I’m sorry, but the episode before the final big four she was completely unsure, angry that he seemed so insistent that they be together when they’re in the middle of the war and he is a vital instrument in that. Then four episodes later, they’re kissing no questions asked? They’re still in a war, the fire lord is defeated but as we know from The Promise and from goddamn common sense, wars aren’t finished in a day. If Kataang had to happen, I would have at least liked to see some kind of allusion to the fact that it still isn’t the right time. 
As it was, it felt awfully like Aang, as the male protagonist who worked so hard and succeeded in his ultimate goal set for the series, was being rewarded with Katara (yay! you saved the world! she’s not plot-conveniently confused about your relationship anymore! have at it, slugger, well done!) and as Katara is my favourite character, seeing her own personal development tossed under the bus for the sake of Aang’s reconciliation kind of pissed me off. And don’t even get me started on the whole Oedipus complex undertone throughout.  
I liked that Katara and Zuko were always equals, (“you rise with the moon, I rise with the sun”) they always pushed each other harder, they worked well together and they knew it, they were an unstoppable force (THEY TOOK DOWN AZULA. Say what you want about Ozai, but I honestly think Azula was the tougher battle there) and that is a dynamic I love. It was almost like Bryke were testing Zutara actually worked in the third season, and almost got there before running back to Kataang. Because while Zutara is an obvious romantic relationship dynamic, leaving the protagonist without the ~ girl of his dreams ~ at the end of the series was more adverse from trope. 
I don’t dislike Maiko, but I never loved Mai and I don’t think she did much for Zuko’s development as a character. If anything I felt like she represented the decline of all his process after CoD, so it felt strange that they ended up endgame. And I suppose you can argue that she followed him and proved herself worthy, but it always annoyed me that she did what she did not because she knew it was the right thing, but because she loved Zuko. She was on Azula’s side because she was bored and intimidated by her, so that betrayal doesn’t really feel that massive to me. She didn’t suddenly realise that her country, her family, were oppressive dictators and that it was her moral duty to stand up to that (in fact she was still pretty angry at Zuko about the country betrayal thing in tBR) she just realised “oh yeah, I really love my boyfriend”. Which yeah, doesn’t sing songs to me about Mai as a strong character (or about the treatment of female characters tbh), and doesn’t really make me feel like she’s the right person for who Zuko has become. 
As for Aaag, as a character, I like him (jesus how could you not he’s fucking adorable) but he’s a twelve year old boy and he makes stupid ass decisions and emotionally, he is not mature enough for a relationship. In fact, before the finale we had already witnessed just how damaging his obsession with Katara was to his process as the Avatar. He almost died because he couldn’t let her go, the world was almost destroyed because he couldn’t get over his crush. He puts Katara on a pedestal, which seems really unhealthy to me, and treats her like the sun shines out of her ass, and is disappointed when it doesn’t. I don’t blame him much for that, because he’s a twelve year old boy. I would expect nothing less, but it bothers me when that is treated like legitimate love and affection. It was always about Aang, and only about Katara when the plot needed it. Katara is one of the strongest characters, and yet she’s treated unsettlingly like an object when it comes to Kataang, which is so frustrating because it’s not that I dislike Aang, I just dislike the way Kataang was executed, because it was so so so so bad, for the same reason Korra was so disappointing; Bryke can’t do major romantic plots. 
I could go on, believe me, I could go on, but I won’t. My love of Zutara comes down to the fact that Katara and Zuko were two of my favourite characters, and both of their relationships were stifling for their development, all the while their own relationship blossomed and fed off each other and made them better people for their interaction. They had chemistry which only maybe Suki/Sokka could rival.
Yeah.

Yeah.

Currently sitting outside in my underwear and a mostly see-through t shirt because I can sleep and didn’t feel like digging out more substantial clothing in the dark. Plus fuck it it’s quarter to 11 on a weeknight and this is my little patio space.

Very bored. I’ve actually got nothing on. No work to go to, no exciting events coming up, no personal goals or projects or hobbies and it’s making me feel very empty. The only excitement I have each day is when Kyle gets home from work. He’s the best thing in my life but I don’t think I can survive if he’s the only thing. I never wanted to be the person who’s entire life revolves around another person again.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

Also when will people realise that AFRICA IS NOT ONE BIG COUNTRY and that saying ‘African Scientists’ is like saying ‘European Scientist’ to describe someone from the dozens of countries in the EU

Erasure begins when (white) people simply refer to them as “girls from Africa” instead of listing their actual names and their nationality. (And this is true when they discuss “Muslim women,” “Latinas,” etc..)
This shit happens way too often.
