  • Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
  • Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that

How to be a good ally to Rromani people

chirikli:

(Inpsired by this post)

-Don’t say “Gypsy”. Or “Gypped”. No matter how it’s spelled.
-Correct others who use the words.
-Punch Holocaust deniers in the throat.
-Avoid supporting businesses or musicians that use offensive terminology. Or at the very least, be aware of how damaging they are.
-Don’t accept “historical accuracy” or “art” as excuses for people to be anti-Rromani.
-Don’t perpetuate stereotypes.

Thank you! Najis tuke!

I blow some of this one sometimes. And it humiliates me when I do.

I’m trying to do better. The problem with decontextualized racism is that learning you’ve been using racist terminology literally your entire life without knowing it’s actually tied to anything or anyone doesn’t mean you instantly break your habitual uses.

But I’m trying. And if I blow it, I have good friends who call me on it.

It’s not an excuse to say that. It’s an admission. A humiliating one.

And maybe that’ll break it down too.

Story /= storytelling

dresdencodak:

darrylayo:

In comics, the “story” isn’t the words in the balloon, and the storyteller isn’t just the person deciding on plot elements. Storytelling comes from the artist/s of the comic as well as the writer/s of the comic.

The best way to explain storytelling to comics readers is to instruct the student to read “NEW X MEN,” sometimes erroneously called “Grant Morrison’s X-Men.”

The comic had one writer and several artists. The comic’s clarity and stability corresponds heavily with which of these artists has joined up for whichever storyline is going on. Grant Morrison, for all of his talent, isn’t in control of the storytelling as much as some people give him credit for. The issues that people like are the issues that Frank Quitely drew. The common denominator is Frank Quitely’s ability to convey what is needed, not Grant Morrison having a good or bad streak.

In this way, the person drawing the story is controlling the story in ways that the writing collaborator doesn’t control the story.

I FIND IT ODD that in comics, where visual style is so identifiable and individual, the artists are considered a lesser element of authorship than the writers. In film, a director exerts far less proportionate control over a project’s outcome and yet enjoys (or suffers) the overwhelming percentage of the credit (or blame).

i bet before carlos moved to night vale he used to regularly reinvent really useless household appliances all the time.

like ‘hey check this out it looks like a regular umbrella but it’s also COMPLETELY FIREPROOF’

and everyone would be like ‘carlos why the hell would anyone NEED a fireproof umbrella if it’s already raining seriously stick to science’

but in night vale everyones like ‘aw man this is PERFECT for when it starts raining fire/gasoline/literal death’ and carlos is just like ‘my time has come’

Anyway, long story short, now he’s the Penguin.

NIGHT VALE!

I’ve mentioned elsewhere how much I love the new take on the Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers uniforms in 2199.
I mostly couldn’t say the same of the medical uniforms, because… well, look at the nurse’s uniform. I mean, yeah — it’s reminiscent of what Yuki/Nova wore in the original, but still…
And then I looked more closely.
Look at Doctor Sado, hoisting his sake bottle.
Look at the medic (I don’t actually know her name, I admit.)
Look at what they’re both wearing.
The Yamato’s medical uniform isn’t iinately sexist. She’s wearing the exact same uniform top that Sado is wearing. Right down to pockets. It’s slightly different cut because it’s a woman’s tunic, and the closure faces left instead of right on her, but it’s the exact same uniform tunic. Which means….
…I’m going to assume that Doctor Sado is so habitually drunk, he’s completely missed the fact that his nurse comes in to work failing to wear pants. If he were sober, he’d probably mention something — “hey, I don’t mean to be a buzzkill, but we are a military ship and the Captain may come down at any moment and, you know… it’s not very professional… no no, I’m flexible. Maybe a pair of leggings or tights or… um….”
Thanks to alcohol and lots of it, the medic can cheerfully promote pantsless medicine for all!

The medic is Makoto Harada. That’s actually a civilian hospital early on. She and Sado are both civilians medics. She wears some very short bloomer type pants under the bottom of the smock. Her ship uniform is similar except with leggings. She rates Zettai Ryōiki grade A. She doesn’t have the personality for Grade S.

mr-cappadocia said: So why does Cracked CONSTANTLY push Feminist propaganda so hard? And let's not bullshit ourselves. You do. Just yesterday you published five articles. Two specifically referenced either Feminism or Feminist backed statistics. Conversely whenever you cover anything related to the opposition you not only mislead about their views... you straight up fucking lie about them and people let you get away with it because you're a "humor magazine". So I'm wondering why you propagandize *so hard*. Why?

Because we’re true believers! 

Let me take this moment to say how Cracked could have gone another direction 7 or 8 years ago, a more Maximy, Booby Gallery of the Day direction if not for the steadfast resistance of David Wong and Jack O’Brien. I barely acknowledge the side that opposes feminism, but Wong goes out of his way to understand people who are mad at feminists, and he writes about those views with more sensitivity and understanding that I could ever muster. 

To sum up: We don’t have an explicit agenda but if one comes across, It’s not one I’m ashamed of. 

Kristi is a liar. I remember the meeting where the Cracked brain trust sat down and was like “From now on let’s occasionally post articles that either directly or conspiratorially tangentially support equal rights for women so we can accomplish our ultimate end goal: Hack into the penis of every man and make it a smaller penis, or a penis that is otherwise laughable for a different reason upon which we all agree. It almost sounds TOO easy,” Jack said, as he (via the mainframe) hacked a young Robert Brockway’s penis. “I think my wife deserves my respect,” the now-neutered Brockway yelped.

#LaughablePenisRights

#NotAllLaughablePenises

It is weird that we do it so constantly, when everybody knows that people only deserve equal rights and treatment between the hours of4 and 7 pm on alternate February the 29ths. At first we worried that we couldn’t cover it all with our current propaganda budget, but we were able to transfer some funding to supporting feminism from our “Don’t be an asshole” budget because it turns out they overlap completely.

Look, I get it buddy. You’re pissed off because you’ve tried to be a good person your whole life and still you feel like you’ve been consistently stripped of the things you thought were guaranteed , and now there is a whole organized movement saying you still have too much, that you, just trying to live your life, is an affront to an entire gender. That’s a shitty feeling, but here’s the thing: no one is actually trying to take anything from you. That sickening feeling you have that your being robbed of basic human rights, there are people around you in your life who are feeling a worse version of that everyday. If you don’t believe me, look at any of the secret camera videos women have taken on the street to catch the verbal abuse they suffer, listen to any of the stories of guys who touch women on crowded trains and then smile at them as they leave because they know there’s nothing she can do about it, read any of the millions of accounts from human beings about the exhausting and demoralizing abuse they put up with every day. And you might not be the guy making them feel that way, I hope you’re not, but holy shit, you can actually help. You can help other people instead of standing in their way because it feels like another inconvenience. Finally, even if the absolute worse case scenario is true: this is one big conspiracy, Cracked and feminists and a huge chunk of the Internet are villainizing men unfairly and creating a culture where you’re no longer allowed to even voice your opinions without people getting angry- even if all of that is true- isn’t that worth preventing an inarguably high percentage of sexual abuse and dangerous objectification of your daughter/ your sister/ your wife? 

Not all the stabs at equality will be smart, or entirely on point or even helpful. This form of feminism is new, chillingly new for how long this shit has been going on, and not everyone is good at it yet, but holy shit, friend, how can you argue against the aim of basic respect for another human being?

XOXO,

Soren
