man, white people want everything. like, anything that can be seen as positive they claim for themselves. for example:
swarthy has a really positive connotation, describing an attractive quality in someone, in this case, their dark skin.
last i checked, Beebs isn’t dark.
okay so aparently my post where the photoset is of that small dude being all “there’s a pretty girl, she’s reading this” thing where i responded by posting a picture of me eating an ice cream cone and then being happy for being given a compliment has been going around tumblr because a friend of mine from school says that all her friemds who aren’t scad students have been reblogging it which i can’t blame them, the ice cream cone is a very important touch when it comes to the humor of my photo response, but i have yet to see my ugly mug grace my dashboard again in the form of that exact post and whenever i do see the original photoset on my dashboard the response that’s always reblogged is the one of the bland mayo white boy going “thank” while being illuminated by blue radiation laptop lights.
So Little Witch Academia / Anime Mirai exhibition opens tomorrow in Tokyo :-)
thnx for the tip, Pandora
Anonymous asked: I totally agree about the gay thing-- it's "pointless" having a character be gay if it's not within the 'text' itself. Most people, whether they realise it or not, are going to assume a character is straight by default; I know I did with Dumbledor, just because it's the 'normal' thing in my experience (i,.e., 99% of people I know are straight); saying it after the fact is more-or-less a cop-out, and doesn't really help 'normalise' the idea :/ And JK had the perfect chance, with it being 4 kids.
99% of the people you know are straight? boy are you missing out
remember when Rowling said that Dumbledore was gay ALL ALONG? and how that didn’t count as queer representation because he was never stated to be gay during the books and it was never shown as part of who he was during the entire story?
that’s why Oaken doesn’t count as gay representation in that snow movie about the girl who is ice.
