i feel like if you’re deep enough in the night vale fandom to put on cosplay and make gifs of yourself RPing then you’re deep enough to have heard joseph fink tell people to stop cosplaying as the apache tracker
so why would you hear that and think RPing in brownface is ok
Rainbow Hair Porn

I’d love to do rainbow hair one day. but ugh imagine the upkeep…
Awesome protests erupted in my school today. Our student council planned a “fun” game for valentines day. They handed out paper hearts to every girl at the beginning of the day. Only the girls. If a girl speaks to a guy through the duration of the day, she has to give him her heart. Guys get five raffle tickets for every heart they collect. Girls cannot collect hearts, they only have one to give away, and guys do not have to give away anything. A gay male asked for a heart to give away to participate and was told no.
Some girls have taken this as an invitation to say things such as, quoted from twitter, “keeping the whores from talking today haha.” And boasting about “keeping their heart and not being a whore.” This has turned into an excuse to shame each other for talking to guys. And for what? A valentines game?
Rather than writing their names on the hearts and giving them away, many girls have written notes of protest on the paper hearts and are wearing them proudly as they associate with whoever they please and refuse to give the heart away.
Proud of some of the people in my school today.
males are rewarded for collecting female “hearts” and are encouraged to collect as many as they possibly can, but females are only allowed to have one heart to give away, and when they give it away they’re not allowed to play anymore
the correlation of “hearts” to how virginity/sex is treated in society is kind of eerie and definitely sexist
This is a really big deal! My elementary had us do this for Valentine’s Day one year. Girls were given a prize if they kept theirs, boys were given a prize if they got one. The boys would harass us - verbally, getting into our personal space, or pulling our hair - until we told them to stop and then they would get to take the heart. A lot of us were pretty mad about it at the time, and now that I see the implications of it, I’m even angrier.
ALL THIS COMMENTARY AND ALSO SOMEONE GIVE THESE KIDS A MEDAL
Almost 20 years ago, writer Andrew Solomon fell into a deep depression. In this talk from TEDxMet, he speaks eloquently and openly about his struggle with “the family secret we all share,” but that no one wants to talk about. If you are a human or know a human, you have to watch this talk, but — be warned — you might just find yourself in tears.
I could not have said this better.Spot on.

I thought I should never see any of these on any real people ever again! I particularly like the Lady’s hair in the Grecian style gown, third row down on the right.
Jaws Theme (Disco Version)Finally I can use this gif
I’ve been sitting here for five minutes trying to think of a way to articulate what I’m feeling but I am too lost in the funky shark rhythm
why do height differences in shipping always have to be about one being really tiny and the other being really tall. what about one being exactly a single inch taller than the other and the second being consistently angry about this.
I’m going to murder EVERYONE
I am one-half-inch shorter than my bff.
It is a very significant half-inch.
Why do some Targets have those big red concrete orbs out in front of them what purpose do those big red concrete orbs serve
This is some sort of nightvale shit
It’s more difficult to drive a car through a big red concrete orb than it is to drive it through a door, but I have faith in your ingenuity.
