The Animated Self Portrait
The most important art I’ve seen in a while.
the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bag despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life
we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

If we lived differently before, we can live differently in the future.
so effective. Put this on television.
i really fucking hate when spanish teachers or students say that mexicans have bastardized spanish when spain fucking destroyed so many countries. having their language “ruined” is one of the easiest consequences for their bullshit
*tilts head* That’s pretty funny, most people actually speak the “bastardized” version of the language.
Also. Like any fucking language int he world, spanish also adapts to environment. When people talk about a “bastardized” version you know they are full of shit.
I find very peculiar the wording choice here. A “bastard” is a child born out of wedlock and in its historical origins was halfway between “your mom is a whore” and “you are born with nothing and will die nothing.” A big part of colonization was the systematic rape of women to create a mixed race (considered in many letters as “bettering the race” *p u k e*). Furthermore, women have always been left to be the main care-takers of children in the early stages of language development. We’re all descendants of rape and rapists and, more to the point, bastards, and so is language. Have you ever thought about the differences between, for example, american english and british english, and the differences between spanish in spain and spanish in latinamerica? One seems a more paced evolution where latinamerican spanish is downright rebellious. There’s even a funny song about how spanish is different everywhere.
In short, Spain forcefully created these bastards and their bastards language. And, well, bastardized means, according to cambridge, “to change something in a way that makes it fail to represent the values and qualities that it is intended to represent.” So.
(I want to add that the “quality” of a language can be measured, totally, in how it serves its purpose, which is not sounding pretty or marking you as ~high-class and cultured. LANGUAGES ARE AWESOME.)
^^^^ These are amazing points. We should never forget spanish was forced around these places, to the point were speaking anything else was not only frowned upon (as in, indigenous languages spoken by lower classes) but actually banned. Here guaraní was banned for a long time even if it was still widely used by most of the population and managed to survive because it was actually spoken more than spanish.
So talking about “bastardization” of spanish is not only ignorant and ridiculous, but actually oppressive since these same Spaniards made people here use it against their wishes and assimilate it with their own languages.

I’m a shame for Dragon Age’s fandom… I don’t know what a “keep code” means…. I will lost the track of life when Dragon Age came out…. but until that moment.. I’m just a lame fan, wondering in middle of a storm of… things people say about characters and software? [I really don’t get what a keep is].
It’s really funny to see people arguing about character motivations, development, sexuality, personality, etc when…. you know, they characters are a complete mystery for everyone but the creators.
I’m not talking about Cassandra or Cole, both of them clearly known due to the games or the other merchandising [comics, books, etc]
What If Dorian is a shy, twisted man, you know… those who looks for a redeem but they only keep doing shit all the time?
What if Sera is just feminine and tender, and says bullshit about Dalish people and shems in equal parts? What if …. uhg… I cant get the names yet… that Warden…. and the qunari guy… what if they are completely different from what they had been depicted so far?.
I would try to avoid disappointment as much as possible, waiting for them in the game before like or dislike them…. I have enough disappointment with Cassandra. Did I repeat today my deep grief for she being straight?. There.
