person : why do you draw everything facing left in 3/4 view
me : im a right handed mediocre artist
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

when privileged groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “basic human decency”
when oppressed groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “social justice”
tbh all the white ppl i know who truly understand racism to the best of their ability, have never asked me “do you hate white people???”
cause they actually listened to me and figured out that i hate white supremacy, not individual white people for simply being white
why are people so obsessed with “top or bottom”
honestly im just excited to have a bunk bed
uhm im pretty sure OP was talking about sex lol. what are you 12 or something?
what the fuck is sex
i wish marvel fandom would realize that nobody hates dc comics more than dc fans like they dont have to keep reminding us
i really hate reading things that talk about how women stayed at home, were housewives, etc. when that was literally never true of most black women in the US
i mean by all means, talk about it, but be specific about which women you’re talking about
I like it when people talk about how women weren’t allowed to have jobs — right, because maids didn’t exist. I mean, women had all kinds of other jobs too, but maids are a really really obvious example of working women that people somehow forget all the time.
(Of course if you dig down you come to find out they were talking about Real Jobs like classy white men do, not gross manual labor which is for poor people and does not count.)
feminism, since the beginning, wasn’t inclusive. still not all that inclusive today. white women conveniently forget that we exist until we want to have a movement of our own.
My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican
