Adventures in the life of a quiet fanboy named Dirk. Sometimes I like to make art (watercolors or oil pastels) which I'll post here, but mostly this blog is for reblogging stuff I think is cool/funny/interesting, and the occasional essay about the things I think about.

I meant to post this sooner. I drew it over 4th of July weekend, when I was having a crowd anxiety and stress-related panic attack during CONvergence. I call it “The Stuff of Stars and Galaxies”.

Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”

This movie is super underrated.

Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?

I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.

hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY

DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE

David Haller backissues - New Mutants and Legacy →

bluepard:

bluepard:

I looked up David Haller’s wiki entry for the really old issues I didn’t want to read. Note to self: never ever do that again. Ow. I’m going to try and forget that stuff and hope it’s been retconned (of course, David himself no longer exists so I guess it has been, kind of)….

In these issues they describe David as having schizophrenia, so I’m frankly happy even when they recognize healthy verses unhealthy. My standards are set pretty low for this area! And yet I still don’t want to read a lot of his canon because it’s so obviously poorly handled.

Yeah, they pretty much had no idea what to call what was going on with David back in the 80’s and early 90’s. Like…he has multiple personalities, fugue states in which he is completely unresponsive, and during his rare lucid moments he has the mind of a child. Like…as I recall, not only was schizophrenia tossed around, but so was autism, and of course Multiple Personality Disorder (as it was known at the time).

All of these things wouldn’t be so bad, but for the fact that they were used as an excuse to make David a villain, either under the control of one of his personalities, or the Shadow King, or whatever villain was pulling his strings in a particular issue. Basically, he was used as a throwaway villain, and the only reason that he wasn’t lobotomized or shot into space was because he was Xavier’s son, and because he wasn’t in control of his own actions.

That’s another reason why I like Legacy, because he’s actually being held accountable for his actions, both by himself, and everyone he encounters in authority.

Question reblogged from Check Your Privilege, Feminists with 58 notes

Anonymous said: you're misreading what demisexual means. it means they only experience SEXUAL attraction for a person they are deeply connected with. They do not experience passing lust or have desire for casual sex. That said, a bunch of the people use it on here just because they want to sound interesting, but there is a specific reason the word exists.

socklessfuck:

check-your-privilege-feminists:

Lots of people do not have any desire for casual sex. It’s stupid that people are being led to believe that casual sex is the “norm”. A great number of people do not develop those kinds of feelings towards people until they’ve strongly connected with them and developed an emotional bond. You haven’t convinced me at all that demisexual is an actual sexual orientation.

We’ve been over this. Demisexual was legit created by some teen girl on an rp blog. Demisexual is already something the majority of people are. Do you really think that people who don’t identify as demi are shallow people who occassionally sleep with whoever the fuck they please and have one night stands? Bullshit. The majority doesn’t do that. Look at google statistics of the word being searched up, strangely in 2008 there was a huge explosion and people went to search up the word constantly. 

I think people who identify as demi only want to feel special and try to fit in the LGBTQ criteria and somewhat be ‘in this oppression’ (which isn’t strange at all cause this is tumblr where oppression is trendy).

rapidpunches replied to your photoset “So, these are all of the drawings my friend KLY (aka rapidpunches) has…”

Halt those nonsensical tootings and accept the fact that the real thing is better looking than the imitation. On a side note if you’re okay with it I need 1/2, 3/4, and three fronts. Lookin up, levelly, and down.

:-P

So that’s a side profile, facing forward with my head turned 45 degrees, and then the rest are self explanatory. Do I have that right? I can probably manage that.
