Reminder that this happened
things about capitalism people take for granted:
if you don’t prove your worth (and not to society at large, but specifically to the people who already have the money), you’ll literally fucking die. this is considered totally normal and not at all evidence that the system is evil
Sums up their personalities pretty well.
Eddy: I can achieve anything
Edd: there’s a logical way to achieve what I want
Ed: there’s nothing standing in my way
Eddy hopping over the fence indicates his willingness to “cheat” the system, or to take a shortcut. Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.
Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.
Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.
Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty
An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed.
“LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.”
The two kinds:
- The ones who do evil
- The ones who let them
Continuing to use the ponies as mouthpieces, I see?
the entire first page of your blog is made up of reblogs about how modern feminists are bitches and MRAs are unjustly treated, and your “blogs i follow” section is a rogues gallery of ‘edgy’ brony artists.
Please, tell me more about how bitter you are that a show you like was created with feminist ideals and wish that those darn feminists would go away, and let you enjoy images of the little horses calling each other slurs and doing something wacky like murdering babies or making rape jokes or whatever. Do you also message the other artists you like telling them to stop using characters as mouthpieces for their personal biases? I’m sure you probably don’t mind if the character is saying something that you personally agree with.
Anyway, this isn’t even a pony! This is clearly a unicorn. I don’t know how you even made the connection. Silly billy :P
"Pony" is purely semantics, and a great deal of this reblog is ad hominem. But I would like to point out that the point of MLP is "friendship is magic", not "only friendship with girls is magic and I’d rather hang out with horrible women than reasonable men". Like, it’s right there in the title, and it’s not gender specific in the slightest.
This picture isn’t the feminist ideals the show, they’re your feminist ideals, and therefore you are using this show and its characters as a mouthpiece. The original criticism still stands.
I took a pre-existing sexist phrase (“bros before hoes”) and turned it into a phrase to express how I hate toxic misogynist culture, and you think that’s sexist against men. This is incredible
So you took one sexist comment and turned it into another sexist comment because you hate one type of extreme sexism? You haven’t explained why this would justifiable, which would be why you have to “spell it out this much”.
are you seriously saying that you consider calling out posturing dudebro culture to be sexist against men

I’ve run into this with a number of different people on a range of subjects and it’s indicative of how they think: They weren’t convinced by a critical analysis of the reasons, just the sheer number of them.
The only way to break that mentality is by critically scrutinizing the first…
There are things about the Spongebob movie I wanted to know about.
This is not one of those things.
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
bringing this back because it’s sooooo good

Art dump part 4
okay story time
so my art teacher assigned us to do a chalk pastel still life of fruits n shit and I was like “no”
so I drew a banana instead.
and my teacher came by like “you need to have more than one fruit in your still life”
so I was like “k”
and so I put that cherry on top of the banana and titled it “Banana Split Without The Ice Cream Because Life Is Full Of Disappointments: By Fall Out Boy" and I turned that shit in.
My art teacher just started laughing out loud in the middle of class
