“if goofy is a dog and pluto is a dog why is one a pet” is the cartoon equivalent of “if man evolved from monkeys why are there still monkeys”

The implication that Goofy is just a more advanced stage in canine evolution is oddly terrifying somehow

theres no such thing as ‘more advance’ in evolution. a dogman isnt more evolved than a dog, just as you are no more evolved than an seagull or coral, they are just fitted for different environments and have evolved as such

Goofy is not more evolved the Pluto, Goofy just fills a different ecological niche. While Pluto is just a scavenger and Goofy is an apex predator both play important roles in the ecosystem.

Goofy’s a domestic dog, Pluto is a real one.

“Why me? I’m domesticated!” is the deepest rabbit hole of a line in the entire disney canon

I think it’s a good example of how prejudiced people rationalise their prejudice. ‘Oh not, not you, I was talking about the bad (enter group here).

ugh fine my personal blog is not cutting so I’ll post here 

DO! NOT! DONATE! TO! AMAZON! CONSERVATION! NGOs! DO NOT!

they don’t act on the root of the problem, they don’t mitigate the effects of deforestation, they do have limited action and they don’t help conserve the forest land outside their very small grounds besides doing little to nothing to help the people who actually live in the amazon and conserve it on a daily basis

DONATE TO THE INDIGENOUS MOVEMENTS INSTEAD

they are organized, they can keep woodcutting companies away from their land, they are getting murdered for it, they are the only reason there is any forest left at all

THIS is a a fund for indigenous peoples of the Amazon (Brasil only)

THIS is a link to donate from abroad to the indigenous women’s march, it has already happened but you can still donate to support the cause

THIS is a link to support the free land camp, and you can email them at apibbsb@gmail.com if you really want to find ways to support them, donations will go to APIB (Brazilian Articulation of Indigenous Peoples) and you can keep up with their news here

(APIB is coordinated by, among others, Sonia Guajajara! so if you know her you know this means shit will get done)

Slightly more relevant point on Tarantino: I like that he seems to have learned from Inglorious Basterds. In Basterds I think he went ‘Oh, I accidentally made nazis look cool, I’d better not make that mistake again.’ (aka the American History X problem) 

And thus he went on, making his bad guys look like the most pathetic and miserable assholes imaginable. And none of them were ever played by Christoph Waltz again.

If you’re struggling to figure out what to do, start with donating to these organizations:

The Rainforest Action Network

https://act.ran.org/page/11127/donate/2

Donate Now & Help Protect the Planet

The Rainforest Trust

https://www.rainforesttrust.org/

Rainforest Trust Saves Rainforest

The World Wildlife Fund

https://www.wwf.org.uk/where-we-work/places/amazon

The Amazon

Keep spreading awareness, but also if you have ANY spare cash there has never been a more important cause to give it to!!!!!!

I probably don’t have to tell you to put public pressure on your governments as well!

youmaysurviveus:

Y'all. This is a fucking global emergency.

Some quick facts:

The Amazon rainforest is responsible for 20% of the world’s oxygen.

It’s home to numerous species of wildlife.

It is referred to as the lungs of the Earth.

And it’s been burning for weeks, and no one is talking about it.

What is happening right now is an emergency that should be concerning all of us. The air we breath is at stake. This isn’t exaggerating. Our lungs are destroyed as we speak and we are only just finding out.

This is our future. Are you upset about Spiderman? Same. Were you sad over Notre Dame? Same. But this is so much more important.

SPEAK UP. GET THIS KNOWN. Even if you can’t do anything else, at least raise awareness to put some pressure out there on those who can do something. OUR HOME IS AT STAKE. The skies in Sao Paolo turned black. We are losing our most valued rainforest. WE CANNOT JUST SIT BACK.

I originally had a completely different plot for Legends up until the very last minute. Fistandantilus was going to continue to manipulate Raistlin and turn him against Dalamar, leading to a Legends a lot more like canon. 

It was only when this was supposed to actually happen- in the Silvanesti Nightmare, that I realised I hated the whole plot, Raistlin wouldn’t fall for it, and if he did Dalamar would never forgive him and I did want to have a happy ending.

I dithered for a few weeks, not sure where to go with it, and if I remember correctly it was my beta Chetwynd who gave me solution. I’d just read the Kingpriest Trilogy aka Fistandantilus being an absolute magnificent bastard emphasis on the bastard for three books, and having more of that total asshole in the story sounded like the best idea ever- hence going with the possession plot instead.

You can actually see the spot I changed my mind where chapter five of Nocturnale ends with Raistlin doubting Dalamar, and in chapter six he’s suddenly come to his senses, wonders why the hell he’s trusting Fistandantilus, and the plot jumps the tracks to a completely new route.

qsolidarity:

everyone who keeps reblogging those posts about how kinks are just excuses for men to get off to hurting women: y'all are aware that’s radfem rhetoric????

like you don’t have to like kinks but the idea that men are universally abusers and women are deluding themselves into thinking they enjoy it when they’re actually just being abused is straight up ~kink-critical~ radfem stuff and it’s not new. and like I’m seeing a lot of that exact shit on my dash and honestly it needs to stop bc this is exactly how they recruit and I’m done with it

uh a lot of the time kink stuff is men getting off to hurting women, humiliating and physically abusing them. if that’s not textbook abuse idk what is. radical feminism is not a problem, TRANSPHOBIA is a problem.

Kink is to abuse what having a boxing match is to being beaten up. There’s this little thing called consent, which radfems don’t believe women can have, for some reason.
