royaltealovingkookiness: deeperthanswords: royaltealovingkookiness: The first training of Zuko we see, Iroh shoots a fireball right into Zuko’s face - while Zuko just stands there unflinching. It’s the very first episode, and Zuko & Iroh are the obvious villains, and it just seems like some macho bs they do.  And then comes the duel with Zhao, and Zuko is down, but when he sees that flaming fist to his face, something lets loose inside him that helps him turn the fight around…But it’s not until we learn Zuko’s backstory that all this gets a whole new meaning.  Why would Zuko still be on basics if not because he suffered a huge setback after his agni kai? Imagine how much hard work, patience it was to build Zuko back up again, so he would not freeze in blind panic (or curl up in a ball) when fire gets close to his face. I think Iroh practiced this with him all the time until he could stand there unflinching (knowing that Iroh is in full control of his bending and trusting that his uncle would never hurt him). And when it came to the duel with Zhao, Zuko could react in a RL situation instead of freezing up, and turn all the negative feelings (rage, anger, pain, whatever) into fuel to win the fight against a bender who is much more skilled than he is.  And Iroh obviously drilled him with control and restraint, because no matter how much he lets his rage loose, he has enough control not to hurt Zhao and enough self-restraint not to burn him at the end. I definitely think it was a deliberate choice on Iroh’s part to hold back on teaching offensive forms to Zuko beyond the basics (knowing that combining those with his unprocessed anger could result in him being out of control and hurt people). Instead, it seems he concentrated on teaching him defensive forms, fire breath, heat control, and so on… What the FUCK iroh was the real mvp of this whole show my god Indeed. It goes over many people’s head, but he made a huge difference. It was mostly assists and defensive plays though, not the flashy stuff. I love that narrative so much, how you change the world one person at a time and not only violence and hate, but also love and kindness creates ripple effects.  : royaltealovingkookiness: deeperthanswords: royaltealovingkookiness: The first training of Zuko we see, Iroh shoots a fireball right into Zuko’s face - while Zuko just stands there unflinching.

In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it? Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity." In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten in small portions with restraint." The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do. <p><a href="https://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/175942345598/alaija-mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://alaija.tumblr.com/post/175942082248/mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who" class="tumblr_blog">alaija</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://mogai-watch.tumblr.com/post/175941005491/oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who-eats-hella-spicy" class="tumblr_blog">mogai-watch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Oh<br/> My<br/> God.<br/> Stop.<br/> -A woman who eats hella spicy wings and doesn’t appreciate this kind of nonsense “academia” getting funded while departments contributing more than virtue-signaling and divisive dreck are chronically under-funded.</p></blockquote> <p>Some brave woman just needs to smash the piquant ceiling!!!</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Or just have a Thai woman go on there…</p> </blockquote> <p>Go easy on them, feminists ran out of things to be plausibly outraged about in around 1982.

Friends, I posted this a little earlier but I’m reposting to try to increase our reach. Please bear with me! John Christopher Smith is a 39 year old black man with an intellectual disability living in South Carolina. Over a period of five years, he was enslaved by a restaurant manager who used force, threats of force, physical restraint, coercion and other means to force John Smith to work as the buffet cook. John Smith is free now, and the restaurant manager is being prosecuted. My lil homegirl read the story and immediately contacted John Smith’s lawyer asking if there is a GoFundMe page for him. Lo and behold, the lawyer set one up right away. I put a link to his GoFundMe in my bio. If you choose to give a little gift, 100% of the proceeds will go directly to helping John Smith re-establish his life as a free man. If you are already over-committed financially or just can’t give, no problem, maybe just say a lil prayer for him asking God to heal his wounds and help him move onward and upward. Love y’all. Bless up! ❤️: 6 month old puppy cuddling one of our farm cats this morning.

Men my advice to u is, be specific. U gotta understand, if yo girl send a selfie, u could say something u think is sweet: "you pretty baby", "you beautiful", "wow your boobs look big I like it that". Yes: "it that". U motherfuckers so dry that u done dehydrated your grammar and syntax and have rendered them nonsensical. Straight up Sahara Desert level reply game. She might not reply to your dry-ass reply but she thinking: "wow you can fuck right off with your sandpaper dry ass." Give her a lil specificity that applies to how she looks in particular and emphasizes a unique feature: "baby your thighs - so toned yet so soft, perfect and inviting - leave work and come wrap those around my face, let Daddy get a taste". Keep it sexy and dirty. If her Punani taste good, tell her. Describe it. Listen to your palette. Same way u be at work dinners and it's always that one asshole Pete who's like "this wine has oaky notes, with a peppery overtone ☺️" (it's spoiled grape juice, shut your whore mouth PETE 😀), I let a girl know her flavor notes. If her Punani taste like cookie dough soft serve ice cream drizzled in warm caramel with sweet, chewy gum drops on top smothered in whip cream and then two Maraschino cherries on top of that, I tell her. "Oh baby ur juice tastes good" <- Bruh y'all become illiterate when it come time to talk sweet to your girl. Be descriptive. I mean, keep it G, and exercise proper restraint, but be playful. Or don't keep it G and don't exercise restraint, like me ☺️. With me, every shot is a direct shot 🏹. I'm liable to just be like "Let me make sweet, passionate, unprotected love to you in the missionary position and then when I'm done I'll hold your legs up and pinch the Punani shut to ensure fertilization 👶." <- I don't recommend this course of action. It work for me because I'm not right in the head and people know that 😩. For the rest of y'all I recommend using your words and focusing on her one-of-a-kind attributes. Make her blush. U get me!
