Did anyone else think that when vampires drank blood that it went in their fangs like a syringe???

“This is where art plays a crucial role in both antiwar movements and movements for peace, which are not the same. Antiwar movements oppose and react. They can repeat the logic of the war machine, when, for example, antiwar activists treat victims of the war machine solely as victims, taking away the full complexity of their flawed (in)humanity in the name of saving them. When a particular war ends, so may the antiwar movement opposed to it. Understanding that war is not a singular event but a perpetual one mobilizes a peace movement. This movement looks beyond reacting to the war machine’s binary logic of us verse them, victim verses victimizer, good verses bad, and even winning versus losing. Perpetual war no longer requires victory in warfare, as what happened in Korea, Vietnam, and now the Middle East shows. Stalemates or outright losses - if not too damaging - can be overcome. The war machine can convert stalemates or losses into lessons for future wars and reasons for further paranoia by the citizenry, both of which justify continuing psychological, cultural, and economic investment in the war machine. While victories would certainly be wonderful, the war machine’s primary interest is to justify its existence and growth, which perpetual war serves nicely. An endless war built on a series of proxy wars, small wars, distant war, drone strikes, covert operations and the like, means that the war machine need never go out of business or reduce its budget, as even some conservatives admit.”

The Cullen family fully could’ve just gone out in the sun if they all pretended to have a body glitter obsession, like yeah it would still be kinda weird that the whole ass family has an obsession with body glitter and wears a huge amount like that but it wouldn’t be as weird as “I’ve never seen that weird ass family in the sun” like it’s such a simple solution, y’all are in modern times you can get body glitter at like any shop, just douse yourself in it regularly enough that no one bats an eye next time they see you shining like a disco ball in the sun. Like at least this way you’re weird but like in a “hey fashion!” way, y’all know your aesthetic and you’re committing to it. The Cullens are fools, you’d think all their time being live they’d use their brains and find an excuse to go into the sun but no.

Possibly my most controversial take yet but the cons of being a vampire outweigh the pros

Reasons why I, local faerie, wouldn’t want to be a vampire
♡ living forever, anyone I get close to if they’re not a vampire would die and that would be heart breaking for me. Also I’d get bored if I had to live forever also also the world is in shambles why on earth would I want to live forever???
♡ I know it’s only because of silver that vampires couldn’t see themselves in mirrors and pictures but like modern vampire media opts to ignore this so for the sake of this I’ll just say “I can’t see myself in mirrors and that would suck because I’m vain”
♡ I like garlic, I’m not living a life where I can’t consume garlic
♡ I like to lounge in the sun like a snake on a rock, I don’t want to lose that, the sun gives me slog happiness
♡ I’m already allergic to like every fucking metal, I’m not about to be allergic to silver too so help me god
♡ I don’t particularly like the thought of HAVING to consume blood, blood is gross and weird I don’t wanna eat anyone or anything’s blood ya know?
♡ vampires end up dying painful deaths and I like, I know no matter what I am I could die painfully but like vampires are out here getting stabbed or pushed into the sun and dying painfully from it and I don’t want that

The majority of vampire media is problematic and bad in some way and I know like no media is without flaw but people who make vampire series really are playing a game of inserting the worst tropes and shit into their stories and literally for what????

Milk’s concession speech lashed out at gay moderates who had supported liberal friends over a gay person. Liberals’ toleration, he said, was “a crumb thrown to keep us happy, to let us feel that we are getting something when in reality we should be getting our freedom.”
“I have tasted freedom. I will not give up that which I have tasted. I have a lot more to drink. For that reason, the political numbers game will be played. I know the rules of their game now and how to play it. All human beings have power.” he concluded “You are just one person, but you have power. That makes power so significant.”

People who honor their values and principles without fear don’t have to raise their voices that much. When you’re right with yourself and you trust yourself and protect yourself, you can say, “Can you wash your hands before we make out?” No explanation necessary. And if a guy has a problem with that, that’s an excellent reason not to fuck him. No big deal, this has been fun, but I need clean hands in my business. No shame, just preferences.
....
I lived the way you’re living for a long time, and believe me, love doesn’t help. Forget finding love and get right with yourself. Getting right with yourself is as simple as listening to your heart for a change. Learn to trust your feelings instead of stigmatizing them, or making jokes, or acting like they don’t exist. Learn to notice your shame. Notice how your shame makes you clam up and encourages you to do things you don’t want to do. Once you start honoring your desires instead of living inside of other people’s imagined judgments, you’ll finally be able to make simple statements and requests without shaming other people along the way. You have to find some way out of this bad, trapped place you’re in, where everyone who isn’t exactly like you is fucking up. Because your shame is making so much noise right now. You are spreading your shame far and wide. You’re off-gassing shame in casual interactions and in friendships and on dates.
ask polly - ‘am i too weird and contradictory to find love?’

“This emphasis on youth is common to most revolutions, and was employed by the National Socialists from the very beginning. To be vigorous meant to be youthful, the “new man” of heroic will had to be a figure of youth, killed in action against the enemy like Schlageter, dying while vigorously engaged in a great and strenuous effort like the constructor of the Autobahnen, Fritz Todt. The Nazi leadership itself was young; Hitler was only forty-four years old when he came to power. Moreover, the Nazis realized that if youth could be captured by their world view, the future was assured. Once again we find an attitude typical of all modern revolutions. Fascism in all countries made a fetish of youthfulness. What a contrast this offered to the elderly politicians haggling in parliaments or to the fossilized bureaucracies which ran the nations (and political parties) of Europe. The Nazis capitalized on the discontent of youth, its spirit of rebellion against parents and school. Ever since the end of the last century a large and vocal section of bourgeois youth had wanted to detach itself from the the “respectable” society into which it had been born. Hitler offered them a way and many young people (not just the unemployed) streamed into the party ranks, lured by the activism of the Nazis, their stress on the heroic will, and their well-defined goals. They could criticize the “bourgeoisie” - meaning their elders - and still retain their deeply inbred bourgeois prejudices. For many young people, the ideal of action, adventure and movement may initially have concealed the rights and wrongs of the Nazi goals themselves. The extract from Inge Scholl’s memoirs is especially telling here. For her brother passed from enthusiasm to disillusionment and (unlike the majority of youth) to organizing an anti-Nazi resistance which ended in his death.”

“The taming of this radicalism proved no easy task, and Hanns Aanderlahn, a prolific writer of books about the SA, warns against the expanding revolutionary spirit. The rejection of all family ties, advocated by some SA men in this meeting, focuses the problem. The rejection of such traditional ties meant a clear and present danger to the Nazi world view. This was anchored in an idealization of the past which included an emphasis upon bourgeois morality. The taming of the activism through an ‘embourgeoisement’ of the SA was accomplished by stressing the importance of founding a family - the wife must be regarded as a ‘comrade’. This extract shows clearly how the activism was supposedly combined with harmless relaxation in which the wife could participate. From marching and doing battle the SA passed to drama societies, from cracking skulls to comfortable ‘togetherness’.
The family was the true cell of the state. Not merely was the ardor of the SA tamed through this emphasis, but it was an intrinsic part of the racial world view. Ludwig Leonhardt, an expert on racial theory, clearly states that the family is part of the whole biological inheritance of the individual, and such inheritance is crucial in the formation of the race. Genealogical research must be undertaken in order to discover the importance of one’s racial origins. Beyond this, such research is essential in order to make the right kind of marriage, and Leonhardt’s book Heirat und Rassenpflege (Marriage and Racial Hygiene) was designed for marriage counseling.”
