♦ Justice and Art and all that Glitters ♦
I am also known as Prax or Meibatsu!

I am a Canadian living in Toronto~! After many years in academic pursuits, I still angst a lot about what I want to do with my life. It's pretty much come down to working stress-free low-level jobs to pay the bills and fund my dream of just making art and telling whatever stories I like.

I like art and humour and interesting stuff. Feel free to ask me anything or whatever!

this wins over other pro-gay commercials because you had no idea he was gay and then you can’t tell which one is his husband

they are showing them as people

not as gays and straights

fuckin love this commercial

can we just talk abotu the fact that the husbands arent even bringing the drinks over theyre just standing there next to the drinks and chatting

fuckin useless husbands

they are showing anyone can be useless. Even gay people


they are saying that it doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight. You can still be a useless person

this post got better

dragonkazooie:

kinds of pairings i’m all about

  • height differences
  • high contrasting designs like light and dark colors
  • happy one with the grumpy one

bonus points if

  • the grumpy one gets embarrassed by kisses
  • the short one is the grumpy one
  • the happy one’s presence makes the grumpy one really shy

SOUNDS LIKE ALTRA HAHAHAAA

In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.

HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE

IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”

WHAT THE FUCK

This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’

They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths. 

Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.

That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.

In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.

This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/

Marinate on these inhumanities for a second.

I don’t think a sexuality label is mandatory to have. xD The label is supposed to be convenient for people who need to have a quick answer or ballpark idea, anyway.

And I kind of find the NEED to find a “perfect label” for oneself a little silly, actually. I get people need validation and to feel they belong. But lol I can’t help the “oh really.” squinting sometimes.

Like for me, I’ll say I lean more bisexual because it’s simpler that way? But then the sex drive thing seems to be some kind of factor? LOL I am not interested in trying to define and declare myself as some demibisexual and sexuallectual or something though because that makes it convenient for no one and not even inconvenient in an ironic hilarious way.

fun facts:
I used to wish I was asexual/had no sex drive because sexual stuff seemed like a hassle and perhaps tied to shame. But then I grew up a little and wanted to have a relationship and love and stuff. And then all the romance and drama and hot stuff in my art (and yaois!) so it was like “hmm.. maybe I am not asexual”.. But then I got married and everything and it turns out my sex drive is pretty low as I can take it or leave it. So maybe I was half right all along?? LOL

My other weird childhood wish was to not be able to have children because then I wouldn’t have to have children as per expectations (a lot of my childhood wishes were to subvert societal expectations haha!). But I do actually want kids (if only to kind of see what my genes will create and to social experiment/raise a kid to become a something lol).
So we’ll see how that goes~ (If I find out I’m sterile or something when I try to have a kid in 2019 then lol wow).

For that anatomy tutorial requester since I can’t reply+newpost to that again.

Screw going over the basics like SHAPES and all that.  Pretty sure folks already know about that, so why bother with that.

They found that Dark Tetrad scores were highest among people who said trolling was their favorite internet activity.

Trolls truly enjoy making you feel bad. To quote the authors once more (because this is a truly quotable article):

"Both trolls and sadists feel sadistic glee at the distress of others. Sadists just want to have fun … and the Internet is their playground!"

So next time you encounter a troll online, remember a few things. (1) These trolls are some truly messed up people and (2) it is your suffering that brings them pleasure, so the best thing you can do is ignore them.

i guess it goes to show you can’t always try to go out of yoru way to be “nice” and “educate” people on the internet because some people are dumb trolls. lol

These are actually way too hilariously cute. LOL
