aerynmoon:

but consider this:

everyone thinks rosa has this really badass boyfriend who probably wears leather and rides motorcycles and could probably kill u with his pinky finger or something

but then one day this really cute girl comes into the precinct to talk to rosa. she’s wearing a cute dress with bright happy colors and she’s so timid and soft spoken and awkward and the complete opposite of rosa

and everyones surprised bc this person is talking to rosa and rosa is being nICE and FRIENDLY to this girl????????????/ she even SMILED for her???????????????????????????????????

then the girl leaves and everyone’s like “uh rosa who was that”

and she’s like “oh her? she’s my girlfriend.”

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there? 
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.

inksplattersandearlyhours:

I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.

We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.

But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.

And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.

Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.

Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.

But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.

Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?

I would really love to know whether inksplattersandearlyhours has read the Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman, and what they think about it.

I want to write an alternative version of Romeo and Juliet where instead of being a little ponce and trying to work things out for himself, Romeo asks his smarter friends what to do about the whole thing and Benvolio and Mercutio come up with the world’s greatest plan:

Marriage of convenience between Juliet and Mercutio.

Think about it.

Juliet’s parents want her to marry into the Prince’s family. Mercutio is a good compromise between no marriage and Paris.

Mercutio probably won’t get his inheritance if he keeps being HELLA FUCKING GAY ALL OVER THE PLACE so a beard is only a benefit to him.

They would probably get along great rolling their eyes at how adorably stupid Romeo is.

Romeo and Benvolio could get a “bachelor pad” right next to Juliet and Mercutio’s house. Every night, Romeo and Mercutio high five as they hop the fence to go bang their one true love.

The second half of the play is just all of them trying to keep up the charade and being “THIS CLOSE” to getting caught all the time. But everything ends nicely because true love conquers all.

Everybody wins. Nobody dies.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Steve Rogers and History 

mikes-grrl:

This long and excellent multi-contributor post about Steve’s possible political leanings got me to thinking about why this discussion keeps coming up.

And yes, part of it is a lack of thorough history education in schools, which in America tend to focus inordinate time on A) The Revolution and B) WWII and post-WWII. Really, our schools don’t tend to spend overly long on that pesky time period between 1812 and 1939. 

But more than that, I think this tendency to associate Steve Rogers with the post-WWII ideals of the 1950s stems from an erroneous concept of how history works. 

That is, it is not simply the lack of factual knowledge which is to blame, but the idea that history is progressive in nature. It isn’t, but we tend to associate “history” with “technological advances” so if a particular era had an automobile and the earlier era had horse-and-buggy, we assume that the era was “not advanced” (and I use the phrase loosely) in other areas.

Such as sexuality: “If the 1950s were sexually repressive, then by golly, think of how bad it was in the 1930s!” As if society collectively went from adolescent to horny teenager to free-love adult over the course of the century. Which is, of course, not the case at all. The 1920s as experienced in the urban areas (e.g. New York City, Chicago) would give the 1960s a run for the money in regards to drugs, sex, and rock-n-roll jazz. 

The fact is that history is not progressive, not in the sense that we conceive of social systems and technology becoming more sophisticated and complex. It’s not abnormal for technology to leap forward (jet engines!) while cultural norms constrict (stay-at-home mother gender norms of the 1950s), or for society to become incredibly complex (1st world governments) while human rights are attacked (labor movements of the late 20th century) or backlashed (civil rights, feminism, queer pride, etc.).

So collectively we think that “whoa, Steve must be shocked by how progressive we are in 2012, after his primitive and naive experiences of the 1930s” when in fact it is pretty much a given that the world he knew in Brooklyn during the 1930s was liberal, rebellious, sexual, artistic, and probably pretty damn angry. No one got out of the Depression without a chip on their shoulder, and a union song or two under their belt. 

It’s important to remember that the children of the 1930s built the world of the 1950s, so the core values were there, and tempered by WWII. The war dragged rural America (the vast majority of the continent up until then) into the 20th Century, mostly kicking and screaming. But as to the perspective Steve would have had on the whole thing, it would have NOT have been naive, sheltered, primitive, or ignorant. Anything but, really.
