How To Draw Better In 2 Minutes

I expected this to be a troll video about sacrificing your soul in exchange for art skills or something but this was actually very informative.

I am so sick of people trying to claim 50 Shades of Grey will not be able to have a negative effect on society because it’s “just a book”. The Bible was just a book. The Communist Manifesto was just a book. Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, The Quran, freaking Harry Potter were all “just books”. If you keep saying literature and media don’t have the potential to change countries, or cultures, or the world, then you’re just deluding yourself.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

Feminist artists - Guerrilla Girls

We’re feminist masked avengers in the tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Wonder Woman and Batman. How do we expose sexism, racism and corruption in politics, art, film and pop culture? With facts, humor and outrageous visuals. We reveal the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair (x).

Martin Guy is facing life in prison for wounding 3 SWAT officers and killing 1 after they attempted to enter his home with a “no-knock” warrant. He was unaware the men were officers; he assumed they were trespassers. The search warrant was for drugs-no drugs were found.

Daniel Martin called the cops for assistance and they killed him on his porch.

We are under attack…

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

Where’s stand your ground now?????

Texas people!!
Isn’t there a law where it is legal to shoot to kill on your property if there’s a physical threat? Esp if they broke in your home?

I fear for any Muslim people in Australia right now, the news has been broadcasting details of alleged terrorist plans that have been ‘thwarted by heroic police’.

Apparently the plans were to randomly take a hostage from the streets of Sydney and excecute them publicly for the Islamic State of Iraq.

But why is the news being broadcasted? Congratulations you successfully did your job?
They shut down national security risks EVERY DAY.
Every single DAY they catch someone or other planning to blow up something, or assasinate someone. 

And part of their job is to keep it quiet, because public knowledge of threats to national security is dangerous and makes people uneasy and becomes a threat itself.

I’m really suspicious as to why they’re releasing such detailed information about the terrorist plot, when it is against their own policy.

Because if you wanted to start another Cronulla Riot, that’s exactly how you would do it.

Australia is racist and full of vicious, violent, hateful young men. At any day of the week these jumped up white boys are on a hair trigger when it comes to hate crimes.

You add this kind of inflamatory news and you’ve got racist vigilantes hunting in the streets again.

They deliberately released detailed information about a terrorist plot for the Islamic State, when it is against policy.


When Pax and I heard the news of the thwarted terrorist lot, we too thought it was strange the amount of detail they released. Pax worked in national security, he was peeved that they even said how the terrorists had been communicating and exactly how they caught them. Like…that doesn’t really promote safety?? It just makes their mates go “OH RIGHT, NO PHONES.” which makes them harder to catch???

Also when it came to asylum seekers coming by boat they refused to make ANY public service announcement AT ALL unless media discovered boats had been turned back and found back at Indonesia…Some how making ANY statement about how many asylum seekers had tried to come by boat or even if there had been any boats was a “threat to national security” yet they repeatedly release huge details about an ACTUAL terror plot? 

How does that make sense???

OH WAIT I GOT IT. Turning back asylum seekers like they have been is some kind of illegal, plus they think us not knowing about them makes us think they’re being more successful/also having those who might be outraged by it in the dark. Telling us full details about a terror plot makes them look good (but also increases hate crimes against peaceful muslims).

Right. Got it.
