shes-a-killerqueen: bigcutiekelly: titankoretech: roseworter: This is so infuriating? Like do you really think war and smart phones cant exist in the same country at the same time without cancellation? Those phones (not even “expensive smartphones”) are probably all the connection they have with family. And that a phone = rich, and that their having a phone erases their status as refugees? I got a smartphone brand new for $20, it’s not great and pretty far behind compared to the new phones but it was cheap.My friend in Columbia was able to buy a similar one for about $12.And also there is the fact that you can actually be middle class or even rich and end up as a refugee!Let’s say your town floods and you can only grab what you can fit in a single backpack of course you are going to take your damn phone! ESPECIALLY when your entire family is split up cause the evacuation happened out of nowhere and you want to be able to find them again. Racist white people seem to think cell phones cost $5 million dollars and nobody but tech billionaires and other whites should own them. Literally everyone knows to have a fully charged phone in an emergency situation, but once non westerners try to have a fully charged phone in a situation, it’s some sort of fucking luxury that should be condemned. Didn’t realize that disaster and upheaval came with a mandatory downgrade for your cell phone. : SOME PEOPLE UST NEEDA HIGH-FIVE.

Situation But: Dajo Jago 29 Oct at 17:38 Liverpool "Every girl is gonna be Harley Quinn this year", you proclaim As though there haven't been a thousand Jokers at every Halloween party since an inordinate amount of men thought they could do a brilliant Heath Ledger impression And as though there aren't a million guys just whipping out the suit they got for a funeral for a last minute James Bond every year And as though every media convention isn't infested with infinity Deadpools all trying to be the most Deadpool of Deadpools to the point at which every other attendee develops a Deadpool shaped blind spot in the corner of their eye to completely phase out the swarm of Deadpools We don't mention those dudes because we're cool with it. It's completely fine. It's all good, we're just like, okay, yeah, cool Joker outfit, neat James Bond, nice attention to detail on that Deadpool And that's how it should be, like, whatever, you bought the costume with your own money and put it on your own body, it's entirely inoffensive and completely respectful to everybody, we're all happy in this situation But when there's a popular costume for women, suddenly it's a big deal and a terrible awful thing And it's like, we COULD talk about how fucked up it is that oversexualised costumes get marketed to young girls, we COULD talk about how fucked up it is that there are still completely culturally insensitive racist costumes readily available at practically any costume shop, we COULD talk about how an absurd amount of costumes simultaneously fetishize and demonize mentally ill people But nah Instead we shame women for wearing a costume that they bought with their own money and put on their own body, that's entirely inoffensive and completely respectful to everybody, and we pretend not to notice the double standards at play
