I have to go to an unfamiliar island today and I am so not in the mood to get lost.
Less queer struggles more queer snuggles
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!
You mean we don’t still take people’s brains out and rub them in salt to dispel the devil and cure headaches? I’m pretty sure that’s established medieval protocol, wouldn’t want to mix things up.
damn right I did
George Takei discusses his childhood and the documentary film “To Be Takei.”
I know this is 7 minutes long, but it’s worth watching. Takei speaks about when his family was taken to the internment camps. During world war 2, Japanese Americans were forced into internment camps because it was assumed that they were spies (even though German and Italian Americans weren’t rounded up and incarcerated the same way the Japanese Americans were, but you know why that is). This is an event in history that is either ignored or glossed over quickly in history classes or media about world war 2.

I was not ready for that Morpheus picture this early in the morning.
HOLY SHIT PAPER MARIO STAGE
you ever notice a lot of stuff is considered poor and gross unless its upper middle class (white) people doing it
food trucks in the 90s were the realm of taco trucks and fairground food and were always considered unhygienic and nasty until all these rich city kids started opening food trucks and now they’re “trendy” and “innovative”
riding your bike to work is only considered geofriendly if you can also afford to drive a car but don’t want to, then you’re saving the earth, everyone else isn’t somehow??
recycling old cheap stuff to be used as furniture and wearing really old clothing is a sign of poverty unless you’re doing it a certain way or wearing a certain kind of old clothing
double standards are gross and you should expose them in your life as much as possible
