Miss Susan of Texas really never misses huh
I refuse to allow my most popular post be a twitter screenshot that I added nothing to but I have no idea what to change the caption to and no one liked my memes smh, y’all have such low standards and I will never recover from thousands of people coming into my house and telling me i’m not funny... ms. brockjampton of tiktok i’m so sorry I failed you... Anyway if anyones reading this you’re very sexy and I hope you’re having a nice day. Drink some water, eat some fruit, bully rich people online, look at the stars, and steal a street sign.
Also, to the dumbasses in my notes, in case you couldn’t tell its called a joke. I know the rich people buy rich people drugs from other rich people doing illegal rich people things while being protected by other rich people... it’s almost like its a subtle criticism of the rich people consuming copious amounts of illegal substances while thousands of people are imprisoned for it... pointing out the hypocrisy of the “smart” wall street men being drug addicts who would be villainized and shamed if they’re poor. Its almost like its an exaggeration of the circumstances for comedic purposes... or MAYBE its just funny to imagine these rich assholes struggling to do their “jobs” after fucking over the general population... like y’all are something else

no one requested this but here are some of my favorites details about steve and also some of the many reasons i love him:
1. his baby shoes and baby picture in the museum exhibit from tfatws. i know EVERYONE was a baby, but having evidence steve in fact was one too makes my heart melt and so does the comparison of his tiny shoes and big ones being side by side.
2. him writing his lines for the USO show on the back of his shield to help him memorize them. ‘girls’ ‘cap’ … he’s so cute.
3. him cupping bucky’s face when he finds him at azzano. it is public knowledge i am a stevebucky enthusiast but even if i wasn’t … the tenderness and easiness of touch is so sweet ☹️.
4. him clearing the howlies’ glasses away from them in the bar scene when he goes to tell the bartender they want another round. he wasn’t even asked to … he’s just that helpful and polite with his friends.
5. i know this is a tumblr post that has been floating around forever but the fact steve wears converse … again: a common trait, but somehow even cuter when it comes from him.
6. his little ‘rogers’ nametag on his uniform 😭 as if people don’t know EXACTLY who wears that suit.
7. him wearing CKs with his stuffy khakis and too tight t-shirts <3.
8. the arm scar he has that the serum canonically left untouched. proof that steve rogers can indeed scar, just like bucky barnes. the serum didn’t make him imperfect or invincible after all.
9. him being the one to provide first-aid to clint on the jet in aou … using the nursing skills his mama probably taught him to take care of his teammate like the kindhearted man he is.
10. his blue waterbottle with the sippy straw he brings to meetings and carries around the compound :).
btw something that really hit me regarding video game violence and how we barely register it was during my playthroughs of disco elysium.
so the first time I played, for various reasons I didn’t have any weapons, because all of them are optional. so when a shootout happened, the only thing I could do was try to talk the enemies down, which didn’t go over great, and a bunch of people died. when afterwards I commented on how badly it went, my companion agreed, saying that regrettably a such and such number of people died - I don’t remember how many it was rn, but a specific number was given.
because of that, on a replay, I was determined to do better, and got myself a weapon. the confrontation still happened and there were still casualties, but I was able to save a few characters by killing or distracting their attackers. however, when I got to that follow-up conversation with the tallying up of the dead, the number I was given was almost as high, and that gave me a pause. I was like, wait! but this and this and this person is still alive, why is that number so high?! and it actually took me a few seconds to realise that the number is so high because of the enemies we killed to protect our allies, but the game made no distinction; it was still “regrettably, eight people died”. and the thing is, I didn’t even for a second consider that; in fact, a video game treating the (arguably justified) death of an “enemy” npc as a tragic loss equal to the death of a “friendly” npc was so unheard of and surprising to me that I had to take a considerable amount of time to process it and realise what was actually happening with that dialogue. and I still think about it sometimes.
everything that i know about this tumblr bug
⊹・maybe “bug” isn’t accurate, but as of now, that is what it appears to be.
⊹・basically a lot of users are being logged out, both on mobile on desktop, and are being requested to change their password, yet are unable to.
⊹・imo that logging out issue seems to be stemming from the issue with some custom codes; when you go on desktop to your customisation page and have had the issue from the previous point, you’ll receive an error message saying, “your custom theme has been reset because we detected some suspicious code.”
⊹・this is really weird as there’s no consistent pattern (e.g. let’s say there are two blogs with the same theme; this does not necessarily mean that both will face this issue), and even themes part of the theme garden (meaning that they have been checked and approved by staff) are receiving this error.
⊹・as of now, it seems that this is only affecting main blogs, not sideblogs.
⊹・it is possible that your theme can be recovered using the theme recovery; please note that this has not been effective for everyone.
⊹・i’d advise everyone to go to their customisation page, and copy & paste their codes (for both blog themes and pages) to google docs, their notes app, pastebin, etc.
I really appreciate your blog but I was disappointed to see you uncritically reblog something suggesting (among better points) that bi lesbians are part of an attack on what lesbians are? Frankly "bi/pansexual, with a focus on lesbian relationships" seems far more protective to lesbian identity since its not just saying "I'm a lesbian but I like men". People simply trying to describe their experience are constantly subject to an ongoing hate campaign from within the queer community? Its awful!
There's a difference between "a hate campaign from within the queer community" and pointing out that you can't just redefine words at your leisure, and you are obligated to understand the effects of your words and actions. I have the utmost understanding for people who are questioning whether they might be bi or a lesbian--that was me once, as well. But deciding to identify as a "bi lesbian" instead of calling yourself questioning, sapphic, queer, or any other number of terms that do include you, is quite literally the same thing as saying "I'm a lesbian but I like men." And trying to explain that that isn't what you mean would amount to more time and confusion than using one of the many terms already available would have, anyway. None of what I've just said equates to "a hate campaign" and claiming it does implies that if you're lgbt, you are free from all criticism, even if your words and actions are directly harmful to other marginalized people and communities.
