THE MESO-AMERICAN CULTURES STILL EXIST.
THE MAYA ARE STILL LIVING.
THE AZTECA ARE STILL LIVING.
MOST ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY AND ARE FIGHTING TO RETAIN THEIR RIGHTS TO THEIR SACRED SITES, RITUALS, AND PRACTICES BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK THEIR CULTURES ARE DEAD WHEN THEY’RE NOT.
THEY ARE STILL LIVING.

For all there’s a whole moment in the book where Katniss is really confused as to why Finnick is kissing Peeta, they sure are cutting the cpr scenes so you can’t see it at all…
I think it says a lot about my current mental state that I don’t really like this movie… but Effie is crying and apparently that means I should start crying…
you are making me want to read the hunger games but not watch it
I’m not gonna pretend the books don’t have their problems, the love triangle gets pretty.. guh. And there’s problematic stuff, but the books are a head and shoulders better than the movie. The first book is the best in the series…
The value of the minimum wage is LOWER than it was in the 1960’s.
Remember this next time someone tries to say those pushing for a higher minimum wage are “whiny” or “entitled”.
cost of living goes up…. while wages literally go down.
If you argue against raising the minimum wage, you are literally arguing that some workers do not deserve to live out of poverty, despite having jobs.
No other way around it.
And if that’s your argument, don’t you ever dare say a word about people needing to work harder.
Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
Just to add to this, she does write songs, and has made a side profession of it. (She wrote the Britney Spears song Till the World Ends)
what if sex toys came alive in the toy story universe too
you got a friend in me
the fact that I can bleach my roots nearly white makes me want to chop all the orange off and find some sweet pastel blue or something.
Oh the sad lack of internal monologues…
im assuming u can explain in more detail??
everyone says or is suggesting its some sort of… obligation to peeta after allhis efforts to save her in the first games?? and i can kind of undersand that but only if their connection is really strong rn which… idk when their relationship development goes from ‘people who need to pretend to love each other to survive’ to ‘actually caring for each other on a deep and emotional level’
In the first place it’s because Peeta gave her hope as a child, he took a beating from his mother to give her food when she and her family were nearly dead, and that inspired her to fight for herself. In the book I believe a lot of it is tied to the fact that Peeta played a sly game of manipulation in the first games they went in. He did everything he could to make Katniss look appealing to the Capitol, he teamed up with careers to try and protect her and nearly got himself killed. He spent the first games taking care of her.
She is very driven by paying back debts, she spends the first book worrying about how much she owes him for giving her hope, and the second book it’s how much she owes him for how he managed to help her in the games, and that she thinks she dragged him into this mess with Snow.
Both Peeta and Haymitch did everything they could to keep Katniss alive during the games, and this time it’s Peeta who deserves their protection.
(Plus she’s got a lot of self-loathing, she views Peeta as the best of them, and that District 12 is better off with him as a survivor than her. So she’s determined to send him home?)
It’s been a while since I read catching fire I might have a few details off…
x-men first class quotes (part 1)
and then you get people who are like ‘its so accurate this adaption is the best’ when like . it glosses over all these key big things about the characters and im like???
(but of course its race and disability so who cares right? as long as the cat is the correct colour its all fine and dandy)
When they care more about representing the cat correctly than actual people… It should really make people think.
uuugh man that sucks and that would have been such an easy thing to get in, theres not really much justification for taking that part of the book out.
(not that i mean u can justify erasing that part of the canon in any instance just that I don’t think they could use that as a reason if anyone was like ‘yo why did u take that out?’ because it would literally take 5 minutes to add it in like whyyyy
Deep down in my cynical heart I know it is because disability is not sexy or acceptable in love interests. (there are so many issues with this I am too frustrated to find all the sources and shit XD;; )
Probably also because the movies did play up the glamour of the violence (for all people kept saying they didn’t… um, taking the trauma and the horror out of it and setting it like an action movie absolutely glamorizes it.) So Peeta couldn’t suffer actual consequences or have so bad an injury or it would be too ‘brutal’…*siiiigh*
And while I understand the ratings argument, you can have infections and shattered limbs without getting gory. and you fucking adapted the hunger games.
?? what happened? (its been ages since ive read hunger games)
In the book of the hunger games they had to amputate Peeta’s leg, because of a handful of injuries he got to it and shit… That didn’t happen in the movie he didn’t lose his leg.
Which is why they fell in the catching fire book, it’s noted that he’s still adjusting to his prosthetic.
but nope no prosthetic limbs for our love interests. god forbid. *hisses*
