What a Conundrum

“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.”

Why is this one of the things recommended for me on my dash.

There’s so much wrong with this.

1. The quote is bullshit, and indicative of everything terrible about our society, which constantly puts the pain of the abuser above those they abuse. 

2 It also grossly furthers the idea that all victims are potential abusers. Which has real life ramifications, because this is actually something that survivors of child abuse fear and one of the reasons they do not always come forward.

3. Bucky has no goddamn business being in this set. He wasn’t a villain. He actually was a victim.

4. We saw Anakin’s story. We KNOW his story. Cool story, bro, but you still murdered children. You are not now and never shall be a fucking victim, but those babies were, so fuck you and fuck your defenders and especially fuck anyone who would think that you are a goddamn victim.

5. We know Magneto’s story intimately. It has been told often. He was a victim once. And then he decided that Genocide was okay. 

6.  Fuck Fake White Khan and we do in fact know Real Khan’s story. He did think he was a victim, but no, he was not. He was a complicated and amazing villain that went against the typical type of POC villains that we get - he was brilliant and clever and not just a “thug.” But he was not a victim (no, not even after the neighboring planet went boom.) 

7. We know Loki’s story too. It’s one of a whiny spoiled brat who keeps trying to commit genocide. 

tldr: Bucky has no business being in this set. The rest of these people are murderous terrible people. They are not victims, though some of them were once.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel

NOPE. 

Republicans talking shit AGAIN. This @GOP tweet is the literal opposite of what they believe, campaign, and how they vote.

They know that no matter how outrageously they lie, their base will still believe them.

I reblogged this a couple weeks ago, but I’m reblogging it again because after sending that tweet out on September 1st, Republicans blocked equal pay (yet again) just two weeks later.

Hahaha TRUTH! #funny #true #weak #funnybuttrue #iphone6 #section8 #welfare #foodstamps

…You do realize that a lot of people on assistance don’t actually pay for their own phones or phone plans, right?Like, I’m not even talking about the Lifeline program, here. I mean they’re on someone else’s family plan, or they were given a gift, or they have a phone issued to them through work (as I did, back when I made slightly less than $11/hr as a foster care caseworker).You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at their possessions.

My family donated an old, used iPhone they no longer needed to me and I’m able to use free wi-fi on it in different locations and suburbs as long as I keep it charged. I don’t have to pay for a subscription or call plan as I can always purchase cheap, pre-paid credit whenever I need to or in case of emergencies. My iPhone has helped me stay in touch with my family members, partner, doctors and be able to get around and tell the weather (which is very important here because of all the extreme heatwaves and flash floods). 
It would also help me call the police or emergency services in case I get raped or have a medical emergency (I’m chronically ill). 
People on welfare could benefit greatly from having iPhones and, in fact, need iPhones as well as the options and features they offer (which aren’t available on normal brick cell phones) much more than your average, able-bodied, well adjusted person who is able to have or keep a job. 
Welfare recipients deserve nice things. Welfare recipients aren’t subhuman. Welfare recipients benefit from having access to 21st century technology and don’t simply purchase iPhones to be frivolous or showy, but rather because of the conveniences and important and beneficial features they have. 
If you think welfare recipients don’t deserve to eat or live because they have an iPhone or a car or any other material thing that makes our lives more tolerable, convenient and liveable then you’re the worse piece of shit and your opinion is as useful as toilet paper. Take your shitty opinion, turn it up sideways and, well… you know the rest. 

I mean, granted, I’m an Android person, but back when I was on assistance I had a smartphone. I used it to remind myself of client appointments. When I couldn’t leech wifi, I tethered it so I could get my case notes submitted to my supervisor.My phone helped me keep my job, AND it helped me apply for something full time. It directly helped me in getting off assistance. IDGAF what people think - poor people deserve smartphones, and poor people use smartphones to enhance their quality of life. Fuck people who think that’s a bad thing.

Have you tried looking for a job in the last five years withOUT a smartphone?  I have.  It’s *ridiculously* hard.  Today it’s assumed professional people can check email, look up information on the go and never, EVER get lost on the road.  Keeping advanced technology from people because they’re poor means they STAY poor.
You’re not petty, you’re cruel.

Plus, you know how you have both a smartphone that you carry with you everywhere you go, and a computer that mostly stays at home?  Well, rather than buying both a $500 phone and a $1000 computer, what do you think the smart money choice is if you need to give up one of those? You can’t give up both because you need to check email in today’s world. Even minimum wage jobs send emails about schedule changes and such to their employees these days. 

right now, a smartphone is probably THE most necessary piece of equipment a human being needs to live in the civilized world. what the hell are people thinking, that someone working minimum wage or looking for a job should somehow be able to function with just a landline and no email?
sometimes i think people like the OP enjoy the idea of poor people suffering, being helpless and miserable, sick and hopeless, because it makes them feel less worthless.
well, folks, guess what. if you’re an evil, self-centered jerkass, you could be sitting on top of a mountain of corpses and you’d still feel like a worm, so don’t take your issues out on other people.
