Drone, Obama, and True: STRENGTH MPERIALISM beyonslayed: c-bassmeow: beyonslayed: This post is wack cause Obama was full strength imperialism if anything Trump’s (unintentionally) impeding the US from exercising its might i agree except with the last part cus Trump is expanding war in a few more countries as well as increasing drone strikes by hundreds of percentage points so what am i missing?   wanting to tank NATO, alienating European allies, tearing up the Iran deal, picking a (more overt) fight with China , leaving the UN human rights council, etc That may be true but there is again many counterfactuals to this narrative that trump is impeding the US’s ability to exercise its might. He wants to invade Venezuela and had to be talked out of it even tried to convince the Colombian President and even mentioned it in meetings despite his aides pleading him not to , he has warhawks as advisors who will, mark my words enter us in more wars or proxy wars, The Syria bombing and military efforts, he may be alientatint NATO but he also had their troops stationed around Russia’s borders despite liberals claiming he’s soft on Russia, and again he has increased military actions in more countries and increased drone strikes so tearing up deals doesn’t mean much when we are still the military bully of the world killing more innocent brown civilians then before. I hate Obama but still . what you said is partly true by establishment PR friendly standards and yes he’s scaling back on some things (some which are good like environmental agreements). he’s throwing over the chess game that establishment types set up but he’s actually much worse in other areas. I don’t think he’s damaging US imperialism but just taking it in a different direction. His regime will support right wing governments around the world and he will as all presidents do arm terrorists and paramilitary groups.

ADMITS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES April 3, 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50 526 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office, Marvel Comics sales have been having serious issues. One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker, Iron Man, etc with ridiculously politically correct "diverse" versions In a revelation that would surprise no one, comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man. And Marvel's VP of Sales made the mistake of admitting that. <p><a href="http://princess-has-a-pen.tumblr.com/post/166223687686/trilllizard420-the1manpizzaparty" class="tumblr_blog">princess-has-a-pen</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://trilllizard420.tumblr.com/post/164525613653/the1manpizzaparty-trilllizard420" class="tumblr_blog">trilllizard420</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://the1manpizzaparty.tumblr.com/post/164445569495/trilllizard420-unicornlordart-well-somebodys" class="tumblr_blog">the1manpizzaparty</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://trilllizard420.tumblr.com/post/164374984198/unicornlordart-well-somebodys-fucking-lying" class="tumblr_blog">trilllizard420</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://unicornlordart.tumblr.com/post/164374320304/well-somebodys-fucking-lying" class="tumblr_blog">unicornlordart</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Well… Somebody’s fucking lying.</p></blockquote> <p>diversity in and of itself doesn’t kill comics, but pointless, endless reboots, massive events that rely on you keeping up with 12 given titles at any time, and constant, badly established legacy characters are why comics are failing</p> <p>not to mention splitting up iconic superhero titles among more than one person at once</p> <p>did you know there’s actually 3 people running around with the Wolverine codename at the moment?</p> <p>Let’s take some examples:</p> <p>Riri Williams popped up with no buildup after Tony Stark got murked, but he was apparently monitoring this 15 year old girl teen prodigy never mentioned before in his comics, entrusted with an AI based on his brain patterns and personality to mentor her.</p> <p>You know, as compared to however fucking many characters they could’ve given his legacy to.</p> <p>Also we’re supposed to believe someone as egotistical and self glorifying as Dr Doom would take on the identity of Iron Man?</p> <p>Please.</p> <p>It’s the same shit as Jane Foster as female Thor, with a healthy combination of plothole.</p> <p>Somehow, a human woman who has not been involved with Thor in way, with a terminal disease that was ravaging her body, somehow ended up ON THE MOON without any protection and managed to pick up Mjolnr and was found Worthy by it after the fight where Thor ceased to be Worthy.</p> <p>Like, you know, instead of Sif, a long time companion of Thor and who can pick up the hammer or Angela, who Marvel had then won a recent legal fight to be able to use….</p> <p>People don’t dislike it because it’s “diversity”</p> <p>They don’t like it because it’s weak, pandering writing that doesn’t stand up to internal logic.</p> <p>Now, an example of this done right is when Sam Wilson, aka, the Falcon, became Captain America</p> <p>for one thing, he was actually established as working closely with Steve Rogers for a long time in the comics before he was given the mantle. By Steve Rogers himself.</p> <p>See, at this point, Rogers got rapidly aged cause his super serum stopped working and he was an old man, so he couldn’t do it any more, but he was still around to give Sam advice and support over comms.</p> <p>But of course, until Marvel actually bothers to learn why people aren’t buying their shit, they’re gonna keep making the same mistakes, as long as they’re insulated by the losses of the MCU and being used by Disney as a vanity press, they’ll never learn and lose more ground to DC and the indies</p> <p>EDIT: Also I totally forgot, unrecognizable new brands they try to create.</p> <p>If your comic customers, as in the customers that go in and buy things, if they go “who’s this” and show you a comic, then they’re probably not gonna pick it up. They’re there to buy Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine, X-Men, Avengers they can recognize, not fuckin Stardude or whatever odd new thing they’re gonna push is.</p> <p>It’s nothing to do with race of sex of the characters concerned, but if they’ve got no brand recognition to support their solo titles, they’re gonna flounder.</p> <p>Not even getting into the alienating, pointlessly political shite like that infamous Mockingbird “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” t-shirt schlock stunt.</p> <p>What’s also more damaging than that is a flippant response to criticism or calling their readership racist assholes on twitter or whatever. That’s a really bad look for an industry professional when you’re not even an artist or a writer as someone essential to a comic book.</p> </blockquote> <p>this person forgot to mention how they shoehorn in unnecessary commentary and subplots no one was looking for. it honestly feels like that sometimes spider man stops mid fight and says “did i mention im a gay POC” (hyperbole but kind of true)</p> </blockquote> <p>this, sadly, is Not Hyperbole with America Chavez</p> </blockquote> <p>And the worst thing is?</p> <p>With tweaking and good writing, Riri and America (what a stupid name) could work.</p> <p>But because Marvel is run by incompetent pandering idiots, they’re the worst ideas to ever come out of the company.</p> </blockquote> <p>I honestly wish Riri had been done well because I don’t mind the concept.</p>

Ass, Fucking, and Head: TO ALL EMPLOYEES It has been brought to the management's attention that some individuals have been using foul language in the course of normal conversation between employees. Due to complaints from some of the easily offended workers, this conduct will no longer be tolerated. The management does, however, realise the importance of each person being able to properly express their feelings when communicating with their fellow employees. Therefore, the management has compiled the following code phrases so that the proper exchange of ideas and information can continue. OLD PHRASE NEW PHRASE I'm not certain that's feasible.

Appalled, Best Friend, and Butt: Out of Office - Business Travel Re: Melissa Benoist Alienating LGBT Fans of SupegirInbox x o whom it may concern, During the Supergirl cast's first day at San Diego Comic Con, your client Melissa Benoist exhibited some behavior that deeply upset a large portion of her LGBT fanbase as well as supporters of Supergirl in general. It is not my intention to defame Melissa or spew mindless hate; her words and actions today made a noticeable portion of her audience feel not only uncomfortable but also unwelcome as far as supporting her role as Kara on Supergirl Melissa openly, on a live video stream, participated in singing a song with Jeremy Jordan and other cast members that aggressively mocked the concept of Melissa's character having romantic feelings for Katie McGrath's character Lena Luthor. The relationship between these characters, named 'Supercorp' by Supergirl fans, was made an enormous joke by the star of this show. Melissa, Jeremy, and the other cast members at Comic Con were singing and yelling about how Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor would never be more than friends, shouting at the top of their lungs that those two female characters would never see each other in a romantic light in their whole lives. They danced and clapped about the incomprehensibility of a woman loving another woman, save for Katie McGrath and David Harewood who appeared uncomfortable in their already isolated positions behind the couch that the rest of the cast was situated on. The song celebrating how ridiculous the concept of female best friends eventually dating each other finally died down, and Jeremy Jordan said, "l think I'm going to get destroyed for what l just did. I debunked Supercorp." In response, Melissa Benoist said, "It was pretty brave. Is bravery making fun of girls of all ages who see themselves in the characters on a TV show that brands itself as feminist? Is bravery spitting in the faces of non-heterosexual women who find safety and enjoyment in the relationship between Kara and Lena? Is bravery yelling and singing to young girls who are unsure of their sexualities that there is no way someone could ever fall in love with their best friend and have it mean something besides being the butt of a joke? On behalf of LGBT women specifically, I am incredibly disappointed. Watching Melissa make fun of people who see a blossoming relationship between Kara and Lena was hurtful to the point that many are unsure of whether or not we can enjoy her show again. For someone who claims feminism and empowerment, Melissa let down a lot of supporters today by being passive and participatory in an act of disrespect and humiliation initiated by her castmates. Watching that video for the first time felt like a personal attack, like Melissa Benoist and the cast of Supergirl were standing around me on a stage and hurling insults to the tune of a song. I was appalled shocked, embarrassed, and hurt by what I saw Melissa do on Saturday. This email is not about 'shipping' or who I want to end up with who. It isn't about which characters I like more or what Kara's sexuality is. It is about how your client, who has exhibited awareness of the LGBT following of the show, blatantly made a mockery of non-heterosexual women during an interview and caused a large amount of Supergirl viewers to question our place in the fanbase seeing as the lead actor of our show turned romantic feelings between two women into a hurtful joke. She is a public figure who supposedly represents feminist ideals, and shouting her disapproval of women loving women on screen made many women and younger girls feel humiliated, disliked, and unsafe as far as remaining a part of Melissa's fanbase. As an actress myself, I absolutely feel honored when someone relates to a character l play or feels inspired by something I've done. Art is made to be interpreted by many, and as an actress Melissa has greatly disappointed Supergirl fans who interpreted her relationship with Lena as one full of love, admiration, and support. The message she sent with her behavior is one she needs to think about with emphasis on LGBT youth I am writing this because I want Melissa, who many young girls look up to, to know what her words and actions mean to marginalized people. I am incredibly glad that I am not a fifteen year old lesbian who watches Supergirl. I feel lucky that I have been judged for my sexuality in the past so that the first time I got made fun of wasn't by a celebrity that I look up to. If I were a young girl who had romantic feelings for her friend, I would feel completely and utterly shattered based on what I saw today. At 19 years old, I had yet to feel as singled out and invalidated by an actor before today In sending this, I don't expect or desire anything besides for your client, Melissa Benoist, to see how much this decision of hers has negatively affected members of her fanbase as well as fans of Supergirl in general <p><a href="https://chloeniccole.tumblr.com/post/163344052431/chloeniccole-i-absolutely-emailed-melissas" class="tumblr_blog">chloeniccole</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://chloeniccole.tumblr.com/post/163323115141/i-absolutely-emailed-melissas-publicity-team-her" class="tumblr_blog">chloeniccole</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>I absolutely emailed Melissa’s publicity team, her agents, and her managers, buuuuut someone is in fact on vacation so at least one is out of the office until the 25th. </p> <p>Even so, I sent it to a handful of others and I’m posting it because I want to do right by all of you. I attached some screenshots of quotes that I had permission to use that aren’t pictured here, and the email addresses of Melissa’s representatives were attained professionally. I hope this message is well-received because I think that as a community wlw deserve a lot better than what our Supergirl showed us today. ♡</p> </blockquote> <p><b>I just want to make it clear that while my initial email was more general in nature and focused a lot on the community the response includes very personally directed statements about my actions and my character and I do not want any of you to send/tweet anything on my behalf for the sole purpose of defending me. </b></p> <p>I feel disrespected and patronized and I don’t accept this as any kind of apology or reconciliation.</p> <figure data-orig-width="1696" data-orig-height="844" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/ffee010dfeca94446fa86c42e72a2e82/tumblr_inline_otkgbgtC7M1r54toa_540.png" alt="image" data-orig-width="1696" data-orig-height="844"/></figure><p>(this screenshot is illegible and the full text is under the cut)</p> <p><a href="https://chloeniccole.tumblr.com/post/163344052431/chloeniccole-i-absolutely-emailed-melissas" class="tmblr-truncated-link read_more">Keep reading</a></p> </blockquote>
