We don’t disrespect American Girl in this house Don’t you dare disrespect Addy, or any of my girls for that matter. American Girl used to be legit. Good stories, good dolls, good movies. Felicity’s story was set in the beginnings of the American Revolution, and addressed the conflict that she faced when her loved ones were split between patriots and loyalists. It also covered the effects of animal abuse, and forgiving those who are unforgivable. Samantha’s stories centered around the growth of industrial America, women’s suffrage, child abuse, and corruption in places of power. Also, it emphasises how dramatically adoption into a caring family can turn a life around. Kit’s story is one of my favorites. Her family is hit hard by the Great Depression, and they begin taking in boarders and raise chickens to help make ends meet. Her books include themes of poverty, police brutality, homelessness, prejudice, and the importance of unity in difficult times. Molly’s father, a doctor, is drafted during the Second World War. Throughout her story, friends of hers suffer the loss of their husbands, sons, and brothers overseas. Her mother leaves the traditional housewife position and works full-time to help with the war effort. They also take in an English refugee child, who learns to open up after a life of traumatic experience. American Girl stories have always featured the very harsh realities of America through the years. But they’re always presented honestly, yet in ways that kids can understand. They just go to show that you don’t have to live in a perfect time to be a real American girl. Dont you fucking dare disrespect the American Girls in my house. ESPECIALLY Addy!! That was my first REAL contact with the horrors of slavery, as I read about her father being whipped and sold and her mother escaping with her to freedom, but also how freedom was still a struggle. A slave doll. Please. Read the books. Clowns on social media: “This thing looks kinda potentially maybe bad from just a few superficial details, so I have decided that this thing is evil. If you like it, you are evil too.”

Arguing, Brains, and Crime: Emily of the State @EmilyGorcenski Trump doesn't speak in full, coherent sentences, because he's speaking a different language, one his followers understand but we don't. 2/19/17, 6:51 AM 86 RETWEETS 223 LIKES Emily of the State It's fascinating in a "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" sense. He begins a clause, and @Emily Gorcenski 1h finishes it with nonsense filler words. 2 4 35 Emily of the State But his followers have already used their bias to fill in meaning. @EmilyGorcenski 1h 1 30 Emily of the State "You look at what happened in Sweden last night, they took in large numbers, they're having problems they never though possible." @EmilyGorcenski 1h 구 8 1 20 Emily of the State @EmilyGorcenski 1h This isn't a sentence. It's three sentence fragments strung together that only make sense if you fill in meaning. 구 7 2 32 Emily of the State Sweden didn't take in large numbers of anything the night before, nor did they have problems taking in large numbers. No, @EmilyGorcenski 1h this is innuendo. 1 4 21 Emily of the State And none of us know what it's supposed to mean because we're trying to reconstruct logical sentences, and not filling in with our biases @EmilyGorcenski 1h 구 5 1 20 Emily of the State The sentence makes perfect sense to his followers. A large number of muslim refugees caused problems that the lying media isn't reporting. @EmilyGorcenski 1h 1 5 20 Emily of the State This style of speaking reinforces the biases of the listener, that's why it's so dangerous. We can't treat it as if Obama is speaking Con Law @Emily Gorcenski 1h 2 37 Emily of the State Trump "says it like it is" by saying the first part of a thought and letting the listener fill in the rest. Exactly as it is in their mind. @Emily Gorcenski 1h 27 3 67 fishnbanjos: abbiehollowdays: spoonmeb: itsathought2: everydayjewels: wellthatsjustgreat: A good take on why Trumpkins don’t hear what the rest of us hear when President Trump spews incoherent word salad. Also why I have limited interest in, or energy for, trying to persuade them through rational debate. I have been baffled by this all along - I could not for the life of me imagine what his supporters were hearing when they listened to him babble incoherently. He’s like a political Rorschach’s test. I feel like I’ve had the curtain drawn back.   I realized I do this to him too. I’m always trying to figure out WHAT THE FUCK HE MEANS.  Only because I don’t like him and what he stands for,  I’m actually trying to parse reality from it, so it strikes me as insane.   But if I was predisposed to him, my mind would decide on something that filled out my preconceived expectation.   Humans Brains are so fucking weak and wrong.  If you’ve paid attention to the way racist/generally bigoted white people have talked literally since the dawn of time, this wouldn’t be a surprise to you, but I like the way OT phrased it. But really people often talk like this when they want to say horrible things about other human beings they know they shouldn’t be saying, it’s just with Trump it suddenly matters can’t he’s flushing our country down the toilet. See: the way white people have always talked about the mysterious inner city and the infamous black on black crime. Or just black women in general. There are always unfinished sentences about black people/POC and ya’ll never have trouble completely them in your own heads. It’s like their very own “auto-complete” for searches they know have already been done by their supporters time and time again. By the way, Fox News has been doing a similar version of this for years. A local columnist pointed out that they often ask absolutely ridiculous questions, but because they ask it in question form, they get wiggle room. “Does Obama want to kill your grandparents when they go to the doctor?” Now, the question in itself is open ended, but obviously, you’re set up to believe that, yes, your grandparents will die because of Obama. The onus is on the station to disprove a question like this, but instead they throw a vague, twisted statement out and have two opposing people argue as if both sides of the conversation are equal in value and truth. The subject of the question then the non-clear rebuttal makes the answer seem obvious that Obama is killing your sweet granny and grandpa when they go for a flu shot. I say all this because this network has been grooming their followers to fill in the blanks from vagueness this entire time. Trump just knows how to fill in just enough words to start the thought process down that way. He’s taken what Fox News started and perfected it.

America, Beautiful, and Cars: mimcintosh loveforallbears: blackbearcj: elevengrackles: blackbearcj: loveforallbears: http://bearwithus.org #brown bear Actually this is a black bear cub named Nutmeg. She just has brown fur. Black bears come in more different colors than any other mammal in North America, brown being most common after black. Your ability to recognize bears and also individuals is amazing.  Oh gosh, as wish as I could take all of this compliment, I can only take the one on recognizing bears here, I recognized her as a black bear before I saw the source. It really isn’t hard to tell the difference between brown bears and black bears though once you know the details to look for, and in fact it’s a really important skill if you live or go to an area with both, they need to be treated differently. I’m very familiar with Bear With Us (who from what I’ve seen only rescue black bear cubs, this is where those pictures of all those cubs up the same tree come from) and went to check their Facebook page to see if they said anything about the picture and I saw they posted another picture of her along with her name.There are individual bears I can recognize (sometimes even better than some humans tbh) but I can’t take credit for that here! Anyway here’s that other picture of her.  She’s a real cutie and since this photo is 3 years old, I hope by now she’s a beautiful bear having beautiful cubs.. If her life wasn’t cut short so some neanderthal could have her in their living room. But BearWithUs is a really great charity that runs solely off donations. They have some bears that they rescued from Circuses and from being hit by cars that can’t be released. Most every other bear they take in gets released to live happily in the wild.  I’m sorry, this was incorrectly tagged as a brown bear when originally posted. Thank you to @blackbearcj for the correction and additional information about Nutmeg and Bear With Us 🐻✨

I am perfectly fine. how dare you subconsciously insult me inside my own home. in my own bathroom. what the fuck upon leaving the bathroom, you catch me watering my Shrek chia pet I am mentally noting that its growth is impressive secretly feeling overwhelmed by the impressive and not at all strange amount of Shrek themes in my home, you make up an excuse to try and leave you say it is getting late. I note aloud that I hadn’t even noticed and look over at my Shrek clock to confirm I internally note that it’s barely past noon and not actually that late at all but I don’t say anything about this thought out of politeness to my guest I show you to the door and we exchange goodbyes as you are on your way out, you catch a glimpse of my Shrek car you wonder how you didn’t notice it on the way in as you catch a glimpse of the back window Shrek decal it’s of Donkey and he sort of looks as if he’s waving at you you waved in response and then you wondered why you did that. it’s a sticker a tiny, inanimate object, completely incapable of any sort of consciousness I see that people keep reblogging this, but they’re only reblogging a part of it up to the cook book bit I love you, but please appreciate my shitposts in their entirety This will be me in the future.

Advice, Cats, and Clothes: From This Angle ANOVAN Not Just Kitten By ANNE WELSH After years spent in silence, I gather courage to speak out on one petty, relatively insignifieant aspect of campus fe that really irks me: the existence and attire of the mascot known as the Wild Kitten Women have been at Villanova now for over twenty ears. We have studied, partied, cheated, cheered with the best of Villanova's men. We did not complain about the urinals in Dougherty's ladies room, and the pain and suf fering endured trying to get the one and only facility for men in Tolentine. We put up with our business teacher ying we kept him from telling the many hilarious sexual anecdotes which he probably never had. We have made do with the poor share of athletic. funds and facilities that women's sports receive But asking us to continue to accept the Wild Kitten as the representative of women at Villanova is asking too much First of all, a female wildcat is not a wild kitten. This grammatical distinction has obviously escaped many people; the fact that kittens are much cuter than cats ap parently induces people who think of girls as a cuter (and weaker) version of boys to make this elementary mistake But when all is fed and done, kittens are merely young cats of either sex Second, female wildcats do not wear skirts. (This may surprise some who still separate the human sexes by the design of their clothes) Further, female wildcats do not sport black pantyhos either with or without garters. Neither do they normally stalk their prey decked out in a pair of high black boots Perhaps the slinky seductiveness of this curious Cen taur-in-reverse (head of an animal, legs of a girl) is sup posed to excite and upset the players on the other team. Perhaps the kitten kicking her boots and twirling her tail like a gentle whip is needed to psyche our fans into a ๒ frenzy. Perhaps the girl inside the suit (who actually is very good and very spirited) needs a free ticket to the games None of these reasons is quite up to seratch. Let's face it, the Wild Kitten is not only blatantly sexist, but just plain weird. Until we Wild Kittens?", we should just have one kind of mascot, the Wildcat, to represent all the Villanova fans. And let the fur fly where it will. e ready to start cheering 'Let's advice-animal: My mom wrote a hot take in 1974 about her college’s sexist mascot that’s depressingly still funny today.
