I'm so frustrated with news media culture
This CBS article showed up in my newsfeed. I normally don't click on articles like these, but I read the headlines. My instinctive response to this headline was "what a tepid, noncommittal response from an uncaring administration." Mainly because that's the mental framework that media & social media has taught me to use.
Then I clicked the article:
What Biden actually said was that these laws are an atrocity (they are). He literally called them "Jim Crow in the 21st Century" (completely true). He made a sweeping condemnation, taking a far stronger stance than the headline implied--stronger than the media has taught me to expect. A much more accurate headline would have been "Biden condemns Georgia election laws" or "Biden calls Georgia election laws an "atrocity"".
As a progressive, I have enough complaints about the Biden administration without media companies purposely trying to mislead me with this shit. Keep in mind the vast majority of people who read the headline will not click on the article. That is just how headlines work. And this is just one of dozens of small but incredibly harmful journalistic practices. Too many U.S. media companies consistently twist words & highlight the wrong information in order to drive wedges between liberal voting blocs while unifying the far right and I am sick of it.
Always read critically, and hold your news sources accountable.

i bet jiang cheng, like, studied for the cloud recesses salute ceremony. this earnest little teen sect heir who just wants his daddy to love him was probably like, "i am going to get a good grade in saying hello to lan-xiansheng, something that is both normal to want and possible to achieve," and i bet he practiced what he was going to say in front of a mirror, complete with choreography, for fucking weeks before they came to gusu. and then after all that hard work, what happens during the actual salute ceremony? he goes last, and who should stroll in just when he's getting started but wen fucking chao, who immediately steals the spotlight, insults his shige, and provokes everyone to draw their swords, in a hall of learning, on the first day of school. like some kind of hooligan! then after lan xichen calms everybody down with his sword-charming, does jiang cheng get to resume his salute? no he does not! wen qing jumps in with her own salute and gift, after which lan xichen declares the ceremony over. but jiang cheng never got a turn! nobody accepted his gift!! how is he supposed to know if authority figures approve of him if the other children don't let him show off the authority-figure-pleasing skills he has worked so hard to acquire???

i love when people on tumblr get weirdly intense about shit that doesn't matter. like this whole prev tags nonsense. there was a post saying it came over from twitter and that it's that crowd that are starting to do this. another separate post was made about how fucking dumb that is because tags don't work on twitter that way, so it couldnt have been them. i think, and bare with me, that prev tags sucks, and it specifically sucks because we're tumblr users and anything that changes within how tumblr operates is immediately rejected. there's a Tradition here, and you need to respect it. tumblr is like owning a really old laptop with a frayed charger that might set on fire at any moment. like, as long as you hold it at a ninety degree angle on your lap and don't move it as you simultaneously twist the charger downwards in a serpentine motion it won't break. it works fine this way, we don't want a new laptop, stop trying to replace our fucking shitty charger.

Three Sheets to the Wind & Back Again
Lena sighed. “I’m fine.”
“You were falling,” Supergirl corrected.
“Yes, and I would have been perfectly fine with that as well,” Lena said.
“Are you sure?”
“Of course, I’m sure, and frankly—”
Lena pitched forward the moment Supergirl disengaged. It was only through the grace of god and super-speed—a swift hand snagging the back of her coat at the last split second—that Lena was spared a face full of cold concrete.
a.k.a. that fic where Lena is grumpy & drunk and Kara is Supergirl
a.k.a. my contribution to the @supercorpzine (:

Okay so. It’s not that I’m surprised that sad mean angry gatekeeper boys are losing their minds over Disney “renaming” the Slave I. I’m just annoyed that I keep clicking the links to articles about it thinking that they’ve finally actually told us what the new name is and no, it’s just the same articles about things being labeled “Boba Fett’s starship” and “Firespray” instead. That is not the ship’s new name that is not a name. That is just a label on a product. Folks, come on, stop telling me there’s a “new canon name” for the ship until there is a new canon name for the ship.
(Also like...you do remember there were years there where we only had “Hammerhead” and so on as names because the Expanded Universe hadn’t invented proper names yet and we were just using the labels they slapped on the action figures, right? It’s just that again. It’s not a new name it’s just a product label. Stop lying to me and making me think they’ve actually released their choice of its new name when they haven’t yet!)
Anyway. I'd honestly like to see them rename it as "Vessel One" or "Ship One" or even "Firespray One" (although the latter is my least favorite of the choices because it sounds too flowery for Fett tbh even though it’s just the ship type). All names that don't just keep the pragmatic, disposable vibe of the original (you don't bother to name something "One" if you aren't expecting/prepared to eventually have a "Two," right?) but are in fact even less sentimental in their complete lack of acknowledgement as the vehicle as anything unique or precious.
It's a tool, nothing more and nothing less.
That seems like a very in-character naming choice for Boba Fett tbh. At least, the old school "this is my face" practical man that I grew up knowing as Boba Fett. Disney does seem disappointingly (but unsurprisingly) determined to turn him into something else, but I'm just telling myself that this honor-code guy with an inexplicable interest in running Jabba's old palace is Spar or some other clone who thinks he's Boba Fett, because the barve I know would never.
Seriously though it would be nice to have his ship named something that I could actually put on a T-shirt (or vanity license plate! I spent almost a year when I was a small teen dreaming of getting a vanity license plate for my car and putting the name of Boba Fett’s ship on it until I realized that would be terrible! omg!!!!), though, so I'm totally in for dropping "Slave" as long as they replace it with something fittingly cold and not some sentimental osik. That would be great, actually, please?
