just your daily reminder that black lives matter, women should have the rights to their own bodies, LGBTQ+ people are incredible, loved and valid, refugees are welcome, fuck donald trump, yes to open borders, eat the rich feed the poor, reform the police and prison system, fuck the tories & drink some water
if you were/are obsessed with horrible histories you are probably a leftie with the most wide spanning music taste and a weird fixation on certain historical events and a party trick of being able to name every single british monarch
Cottagecore started as an anti-capitalist movement and should return to its anti-capitalist roots! It was about living off the land and rejecting the 9-5 lifestyle . It was a group of people who wanted to run away and escape the chains of capitalism. Cottagecore isn't just baking bread and cute dresses.
You must be fucking stupid if you think not every demigod in Percy Jackson is left wing. Their literally all in marginalized communities EVEN OUR MAIN CHARACTER PERCY JACKSON THE CIS WHITE MAN IS LOW INCOME AND DISABLED like none of those kids could be even fucking Democrats especially Thalia Grace saying as she’s punk. Being punks means being anti bigotry so she’s definitely left wing
caring about black and hispanic americans is not a political stance. its basic human decency. voting for a president who has repeatedly shown he doesn't care about minorities is gross negligence at best, and intentionally abetting oppression at worst (which is, honestly, the more realistic possibility at this point.)
I don’t understand the perspective that “you’ll grow further right as you get older” as if conservatism is somehow a mature ideology and not just the result of someone growing more rigid and scared of change - a fear that ultimately leads to hurting minorities who want to challenge the unfair status quo that oppresses them. From my perspective I had more conservative ideas as a child because I hadn’t yet grown the ability to critically examine them and seen how 2-dimensional they were compared to the real world. I hadn’t yet grown to learn more about the real complexities and problems of the world that being left wing desires to fix for the better of all - not just those who already benefit from the current structures. Watching conservatives argue is like watching a child argue in that they have a position they wish to defend because it benefits them, and then work backwards for a justification for that and the further right a person is the more absurd the illogical argument becomes. Growing right as you grow older is just privilege solidifying.
