Nina Jacobson, Catching Fire DVD Commentary
Happy Birthday mellarksloaves!! You are one of the most amazing people to grace our fandom and truly the greatest friend I’ve ever made on Tumblr. All the love to you! <3 <3 <3
You can take the most respectful, sensitive people, give them Cards Against Humanity, and in a few minutes they’ll be laughing about genocide.
*ugly, hacking laughter*
#basically a community’s enjoyment of a thing is more important than the damaging social dynamics perpetuated in the texT???#is that what he’s trying to say???#people enjoy the misogyny they’re being fed so who are we to call them out?? is that what i’m hearing here?#it’s okay to uphold harmful systems of oppression as long as people enjoy it!???? is that the message??#w H A t
This is essentially another version of the argument “it makes money and is successful, and therefore is above any critical analysis or social/political critique.”
It’s always been a bullshit defense.
well if he acknowledged the potential damage problematic narratives can cause, he’d have to examine his own, and that would just be awkward.
Steve’s face tho like “where’s your righteousness Natasha” is priceless
Peeta missing a limb wouldn’t automatically disqualify him from participating in the Olympics. Oscar Pistorius is a double-amputee who ran in the Summer Olympics (as well as the Summer Paralympics) in 2012. So disability doesn’t automatically make one unable to compete in what the general public would consider the “standard” competition.
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
Is it bad that I am already thinking about how wonderful these would be to modify?
I might actually throw down for one on principle.
