my mom just woke suddenly out of a dead fucking sleep and loudly enthused “WOWEE”
i want hellboy to meet stacker pentecost and the k-sci boys and I need it to happen rIGHT STAT NOW
thank god for urbandictionary or I’d never know what anyone was talking about
while this is true it can also cause some serious failures in communication
a really hot guy once asked me if i wanted to go fly a kite with him and i figured he couldn’t possibly mean flying an actual kite because who does that and so i looked it up on urbandictionary and it’s apparently slang for anal sex so i was like “nah thanks i’m not into that” and he was like “oh damn i just got this new kite” and sent me a selfie of him posing with an actual literal kite and to this day i have not forgiven myself for that
i fucking love those posts that turn into hilarious but harmless trainwrecks it’s like playing telephone in the second grade but with thousands of other people
"If you have to have someone who looks like you in the media in order for you to relate then maybe you’re the one who’s racist"
"children don’t see/care about race"
"Color doesn’t matter! It’s about the actor/story!"
"there are bigger issues to talk about than representation"
"they whitewashed because they need to make a profit and attract their target audience"
"It’s a European fairytale/story so of course the characters will be white!"
"whitewashing isn’t real"
"they considered and picked the best actor for the job"
(The best actor? More like the best we can do at this time.)
(It’s not the best actor when you exclude a racially ambiguous role to one race.)
"why do we need minorities in European stories!? they wouldn’t do a story about Africa with white actors!”
