how do other white people manage to feel so persecuted on tumblr that they need to make a fucking half-assed photoset about it on the daily like the worst i’ve ever seen is ‘why can’t white people handle spicy food’ and i just read it like ‘yeah. yeah you’re right. i’m white and i buy mild salsa. you got me’
the eternal battle with internalized misogyny
here’s an example of how insidious this is:
If you were one of those young girls who was simultaneously told that she was smart and talented and loveable for being smart and talented but also told that men were smarter and more valuable than women, you might grow up rejecting anything even vaguely feminine because you didn’t want to be mistaken for weak/stupid/ girly, which you know are bad things.
So you might have a whole lot of tastes that you thought were intrinsic to your personality, like hating the color pink, that are really internalized misogyny. You might grow up and discover some girly stuff that is GREAT like Sailor Moon and realize that you don’t actually hate sparkles and flowers and pink after all, and wonder how different you might have been if you hadn’t been taught from an early age that being a girl was distasteful.
oh look the realization i’ve been having for the past few years
I watched Pacific Rim again and Hermann cracks me up cuz he acts like he’s the straight man to Newton’s stooge, but literally everyone knows it’s like comparing the maturity of a 6 year old to a 5 year old
holy shit this is gold hahahahahhahahah
also i really love how you draw hermann!!
au where female characters who have important storylines and character arcs are turned into damsels in distress and their male love interests have to rescue them!
how about no
Stunning Electric-Blue Flames Erupt From Volcanoes - Olivier Grunewald.
Sulfur Sulfur combusts on contact with air to create stunning blue lava-like rivers of light in the Kawah Ijen crater on the island of Java.Kawah Ijen is one of several volcanoes situated in a 20 km radius in East Java, Indonesia. The caldera of Kawah Ijen harbors a kilometer-wide, turquoise colored, acidic crater lake that leaks sulphurous gases. At night the hot gases burn to emit an eerie blue glow that is unique to Kawah Ijen. The gases emerge from the cracks in the volcano at high pressure and temperature, up to 600°C, and when they come in contact with the air, they ignite, sending flames up to 16 feet high. Some of the gases condense into liquid sulfur, and continues to burn as it flows down the slopes giving the feeling of blue lava flowing.

I FEEL LIGHTHEADED I MIGHT PASS OUT
I heard his reaction first. He is not exaggerating. Might even be underplaying the level of freakout that he experienced. I am proud of my man.
