internet celebrity culture has the power to grant essentially any person a direct position of power and influence over young and impressionable people, with no filter in between.
it can be taken advantage of on a whim with little friction, both actively by people who actively plan and endeavor to take advantage of people, as well as passively by people whose intentions may be less overtly sinister but who show reckless and irresponsible negligence toward understanding and policing their own actions.
if you do or have ever had any place in internet celebrity culture, it is a necessity that you fully understand the implications of it. it is your responsibility not only to hold others in your circles and community accountable for their actions, but to look inward and understand how it affects you and how to detect and address warning signs in yourself before anyone else has to.
this has gotten to the point where everyone in these communities needs to be engaged personally in the conversation, both internally and externally. the level of tolerance for this shit by community figures needs to drop off the map and the conversation needs to be visible.
IT’S PRETTY COOL THAT WE ALL LIVE UNDER THE SAME STARS AND IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AND ON THE SAME PLANET WOA H I HOPE YOU ARE OKAY OUT THERE FRIEND
bisexual people passing as straight when they’re in a straight relationship is not “passing privilege.” it’s erasure. it’s assimilation.
that’s like saying that femme lesbians have privilege over butch lesbians. invisibility might keep people safer on a micro-level which is fucked up, but it’s all based on people thinking they can tell who’s queer & who’s straight just by looking at them, which is infinitely problematic and painful.
don’t alienate queer people who are assumed to be straight. invisibility is a symptom of hetero-normativity, not a privilege.
What the hell is that fox doing?
probably making a withdrawal seeing as he’s in line at the atm
my favorite part about this picture is that people saw the fox there and just started queuing behind it
well yeah, cutting in line is rude

This is ingenious.

okay but I’m actually really scared that the lid of the drink is going to come off or something
//the way this works is that it stops about 2 inches above the top (the hole only big enough to go that far without ripping) so you wouldn’t have to worry about the lid coming off!
it’s really a brilliant idea. it cuts down on the amount of materials used, and space it takes up. all around good engineering.
from the looks of it it might be recycled materials too? if not then it should be.
it frees up your other hand from having to carry your drink but also doesn’t shove the cold drink next to the warm food
This is the definition of innovation, no amount of sleeves on a blanket can beat this.
