Hey Agents of SHIELD fans,
Can those of you unironically rooting for the handsome white man who killed people in the name of a Nazi faction please stop? Thank.
just in case anyone needed a reminder here is what feminism is
it’s not a “cult”, it’s a movement for equal rights
by definition, “anti-feminism” is being against the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men
think twice before you’ proudly have “anti-feminist” in your blog description

The war is over, and we are beginning.
The actual way to fix things like Walmart, sadly, is far more complicated, and difficult because it’d mean making major changes in the very system of our government. As we all know our politicians are completely bought out and working for corporations rather than the people. Which is why literally every attempt to fix things for the vast majority of Americans has been ripped to shreds and left barely functional.
That’s why we’ve lost a lot of workers’ protections, that unions are nearly useless, minimum wage is shit, the ACA hardly does anything meaningful, and when it did, they’re working on legislating around.
Along with the secondary issue that a lot of people are desperate and will take almost anything. (AKA - Why almost half of my friends elected to get shot at, in war zones, so they could afford to go to college and get a chance at getting out of poverty. Just think about that, literally risking their lives to be able to go to college). There isn’t much room for people to fight in that kind of system.
It’s also hard to get people to rally behind a cause, the liberal sect needs everything to be absolutely perfect, and is also so entrenched in classism (yep, I’m calling y’all on that), that it’s hard to get a significant number of people to side with them. The poor are terrified by things like undocumented workers, because they’ll work for even less than they do, costing them jobs. And of course the entire system is set up to pit the poor against themselves, good poor people, bad poor people. I seriously listened to my mom bitch about how some people who were begging “shouldn’t get money for free because she had to work” I told her to quit her job and go beg then. (Point quickly gotten).
The system has us all at each other’s throats, regardless of personal political leanings, and we need to be able to unite to be able to overthrow it.

If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones. (quote)

Turkish Halfeti Roses are incredibly rare. They are shaped just like regular roses, but their color sets them apart. These roses are so black, you’d think someone spray-painted them. But that’s actually their natural color.
Although they appear perfectly black, they’re actually a very deep crimson color. These flowers are seasonal – they only grow during the summer in small number, and only in the tiny Turkish village of Halfeti. Thanks to the unique soil conditions of the region, and the pH levels of the groundwater (that seeps in from the river Euphrates), the roses take on a devilish hue. They bloom dark red during the spring and fade to black during the summer months.
The local Turks seem to enjoy a love-hate relationship with these rare blossoms. They consider the flowers to be symbols of mystery, hope and passion, and also death and bad news.
Seeing a black rose in full bloom is a once-in-a-lifetime sort of thing. Don’t miss it if you ever happen to be in Turkey during the summer.
