poeticimplosion asked: Okay--so i was totally glad that you addressed the whitewashing thing, because that really pissed me off. As handsome as whatever the fuck his name is can be, still. And I (i mean, i haven't watched it, but i have no beef with spoilers, really) totally agree with the comment earlier about the going off and doing the new thing-- i mean you went through all that fucking trouble in the first...

Why I think the whitewashing in Star Trek: Into...
This will probably contain spoilers, be warned: I know I already did an analysis of the movie, but in my haste, and also exhaustion, I feel like I kind of skipped over the whole whitewashing issue. It’s something that has been bothering me, so I wanted to put it into words here. I am, of course, against whitewashing in every scenario. It’s awful, it’s a form of institutional...
raven-sun asked: i'll talk to you about Star Trek I just got back from seeing it and wow yeah feelings good things bad things but mostly feelings
friendbrotherlover asked: Ah! I agree with almost everything in your Star Trek Into Darkness analysis!!
hannahble-lecter asked: re: the fuck did i just watch post - YES THANK YOU YOUR COMMENTARY SUCCINCTLY AND APTLY CONVEYED EVERY CRITICISM AND ENJOYMENT I HAD OF THE MOVIE. Like almost verbatim. I thought it was better than the first movie by far but there wasn't enough of an emotional connection yet with the crew that the impact of Kirk dying was just "eh" for me - not because he sacrificed himself for the...

For my take on the movie, look under the cut. [[MORE]] Alright, well, that was a clusterfuck. I’m not sure how one movie can encompass so much good and bad at the same time. I’ll break this down...
Getting real tired of your shit, Mother's Day...
It’s like every store in the country is making fun of me. “Buy something nice for your mom—LOL U CAN’T COS SHE’S DEAD.” I mean, it was sad and depressing the first year or two, but now it’s just annoying. Stfu about mother’s day already. It should be about loving your mother, and not about supporting capitalist industries, anyway. So fuck this,...

In other news, it doesn’t matter which of my tumblr blogs I’m on, and no matter who I follow, there is always Supernatural on my dash.
Never Go to the Mall on a Fat Shirt Day
I was forced to go pants and bra shopping yesterday, since every single pair of jeans I owned were ripped to shreds at the crotch, my bras were too worn out to support my breasts any longer, and I finally had money to do it. However, I’ve been hopped up on some srs bizz nizz panic anxiety for the past week, so I was mentally and physically exhausted, and I looked it. Which is perhaps, the...
callieohpeee: when i was around 5 i asked my mom why “some people were different colors” and she said “because god wanted lots of flavors” and let me tell you that was the wrong thing to say because for the next 3 years i thought god ate people when they died

Um. Feminism and all that jazz.
My Racial Identity Crisis
So a week or so ago I was in Lansing, Michigan for MBLGTACC 2013 (which was fabulous), but while I was there I had a minor racial identity crisis. Not that this was the first time this has happened—far from it, really—but it was a bit more frustrating than usual. If you don’t know, I’m half black/half white, but I look completely racially ambiguous, and have spent my...
This is long, but please read it.
nipplesinthetimeline: sandetiger: Most you that follow me already know this but I do have this hope that maybe this’ll get reblogged even though I feel really awful about asking things of people who I know have problems of their own. But, um, hi guys; my name is Moira, I’m 19 years old, and my father, the person I love most in the whole wide world, is in the hospital right now. On December...

Bayard Rustin Bayard Rustin was a pivotal leader in the Civil Right’s Movement. He did a protest, “Journey of Reconciliation”, which protested discrimination on interstate travel, for which the Freedom Rides later used as an example. He assisted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, and helped Dr. King—who was at that time not on board with the...

sandetiger asked: Hi Dizzy :) I feel you on that looking-down-on-people-who-have-addictions front. Regardless of what they're doing, they're still people, and they deserve compassion and the like. :/
unofficial-channels said: That is fucking disgusting. But it’s good to know that even though that man is struggling out there alone, at least someone (you) cares about him. I was trying to tell myself that earlier. It was going to be my argument if my guard buddy told me I was overreacting. If I don’t care about him, who will? Still, I wish I could do more.
How I Feel about Christmas
I threw a tiny fit at work today, but I feel I was...
So I work at the city library, yes? Yes. I also happen to work at the city library that is located downtown and is fairly consistently filled with lower income and homeless persons. Today we had a minor incident that set off a lot of non-minor feels in me, and I feel this blog would be a good place to vent them. First, some background. It is pretty common among the staff of the library to look...

Why Menstrual Cups are the Best
I’m on the rag this week (omg tmi), and I was thinking about how menstrual cups are so much better than pads and tampons (never could get the hang of tampons, and used pads for like, 800 years before switching over), and I thought I’d put a little plug in for them here on mah feminism blog, partially because when I was considering them I appreciated hearing first hand experiences, and...
It is truly a shame that no one hears the funny comments I make when I watch movies by myself. I am fucking hilarious when no one is listening.

These are the dilemmas you face when you are too poor to get an apartment with a functioning kitchen sink.

superawesomelnk replied to your post: I want a tattoo on my right shoulder, but I can’t… if you get a tattoo of steve harvey on your shoulder I will personally fund it Free tattoo? Eh, why the fuck not?
raskette replied to your post: I want a tattoo on my right shoulder, but I can’t… Or abstract tattoos are pretty tight too. And I always love pwetty flower ones too :3 I was thinking flowers would look cool, but I already have a flower tattoo. And in response to your other suggestion, I already have an idea for a kitty tattoo. :P
copperbooms: it’s 12/12/12 not 12/12/12 you stupid americans
I want a tattoo on my right shoulder, but I can’t think of a design I want. Not that it matters because I have no money, but still, it doesn’t hurt to dream.

I have a good friend who’s pregnant, which is awkward enough because we’re the same age (literally, same birthday), and she’s married (which is, whatever, her choice, but I had a bit of an issue with since she was with him for a matter of months, and got pregnant like, right away, and is 19). Also, she’s a marine, and I’m anti-military, so we’ve had our share of...
