Am I the only one dying to know Kristoff’s backstory?
Like how does this little kid go from harvesting ice with a bunch of old guys who don’t give him a second glance, then is suddenly wandering around heaven knows where with a reindeer colt, only to end up getting raised by a bunch of trolls?
Where did he come from? What was he doing working the ice when the intro song stressed that it was dangerous? Where are his parents? Why was he alone when he followed the royal family to the trolls? Where did Sphen come from?
I swear there were video cameras EVERYWHERE why is it the only videos I’ve seen with me in them were videos of the parade?
I mean the people with the video cameras were so close and moving around so much near me during the dance Saturday night that it was getting freaking ANNOYING and I don’t even get to see myself dancing like an idiot to make up for it.
you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people
if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole
we all have an imaginary relationship with our favorite celebrity don’t even lie and say you don’t
Except us Aromantic Aces. Unless you’re including the ‘hang out and watch our favorite movies’ sort of relationship, or the ‘let’s chat about random stuff on skype’ sort of relationship, or the ‘hey let’s cosplay as our favorite characters and hit a con’ sort of relationship….
so what youre saying is that you support cis people? after all theyve done to oppress you as a "queer" individual?
Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.
Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.
Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.
I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece.
In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances.
Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?
No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.
So I’m sure you recognize this as one of the epic moments from “The Prince of Egypt” where we see the super majestic whale as they cross through the Red Sea. However I noticed just one little issue: whale tales don’t move from side to side, they move up and down. And then it hit me, that’s not a whale. That’s not a whale. It’s a motherfucking SHARK. A BIG ASS MEGALODONIAN SHARK. WAITING IN THE WATER TO EAT THE PHARAOH’S SOLDIERS. Goddamn, Dreamworks.
it’s not a shark though, the whale is banking in such a way that we’re seeing its tail from the bottom rather than from the side. (least that’s the way my eyes are interpreting it)
“In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.”—The Myth of Working Your Way Through College - Svati Kirsten Narula - The Atlantic (via infoneer-pulse)
