whoops looks like the writers at marvel need a reminder of their own characters’ origins before they do something else grossly offensive

hey, nick spencer!  i know you’re probably not reading this, but shut up and listen for a second, maybe you’ll learn something about respect.  do you know how many jewish people died during the holocaust?  somewhere between 5,000,000 to 6,000,000.

yes, you read that right.  five to six million people dead, all less than eighty years ago.

marvel comics have never skirted around this.  they made it a vital part of magneto’s history, one that shapes his attitudes and opinions more than anything else.  he’s been subjugated, and he’s not going to let it happen to his people - in this case, mutants - again.

so what, mr. spencer, are you accomplishing by having him join up with hydra beyond spitting in the faces of all those millions of dead?  you’ve taken a jewish character - created by JEWISH WRITERS AND ARTISTS - and signed him up with what’s clearly the marvel universe’s equivalent of the nazis.  what are we supposed to take away from this besides the knowledge that you are a cold, insensitive human being?

magneto deserves better.  the jewish community deserves better.  and you own the latter a hell of an apology.

Don’t let people forget this

GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz says low-income Americans may have to choose between healthcare and an iPhone

Low-income Americans might soon be faced with a tough choice, if House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz is to be believed: Would they rather have health coverage or an iPhone?

During a Tuesday morning interview, Chaffetz implied that Americans who wouldn’t be able to afford insurance under the new plan would only have themselves to blame, and said that those individuals would need to make sacrifices for their health.

“Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on, maybe they should invest in their own health care.” Read more (3/7/17 12:03 PM)

*chinhands* if you’re not already infuriated enough…twitter unearthed a rather lovely lil fact about this idiot.

Guess who used campaign funds to pay for his iPhone?

On July 15, 2016, Chaffetz, or someone from his office, spent a total of
$775.04 in two purchases (one for $738.08 and another for $36.96) at an
Apple Store in Salt Lake City using funds from the Friends of Jason Chaffetz committee. That would be enough to purchase a new iPhone 6S and a case.

“Yes this LGBT mini-series “WHEN WE RISE” is a big deal AND there is no bisexual representation. The B is missing from this epic LGBT docu-drama. When LGBT people rose in San Francisco [and everywhere else], we rose together. Bisexuals worked shoulder to shoulder with Cleve Jones, Ken Jones, Roma Guy and Cecilia Chung whose lives are featured. This is not to take away from their incredible contributions; this is to point out what might not be noticed in the excitement of watching “When We Rise”.
The suppression and silencing of bisexual contributions, history, and culture serves no one, especially our multi-generation LGBTQI community/movement. Williams Institute and Pew research among others show there are more self identified bisexuals than gay and lesbian people put together. Forty percent of self identified bisexual people are people of color. Bisexual suicide, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, rape, stalking, poverty, alcohol/drug/nicotine rates are higher than for gay, lesbian and heterosexual people. The ongoing casual and sometimes callous disregard of bisexual people and our lives is unacceptable and fueling a bisexual mental/physical health crisis. Excluding and isolating anyone in our community hurts all of us, especially in these dangerous times. What are you able to do to stand with and stand up for bisexual people and challenge biphobia, misinformation and ignorance – including perhaps your own?
Aloha,
Lani Ka’ahumanu”

“Reproductive health care should be a right for everyone — regardless of their income, their zip code, gender, you name it. I have such admiration for health center staff and doctors all across the country who go to work every day. Many of them walk through protesters just to get into work and provide care for patients. That’s what keeps me centered.”

Is this thing on? Aka Purim!:

copperbadge:

drownedinlight:

So Purim starts this Saturday 3/11/17 at sundown. I had a request way back when from some Jewish members of the team to stream a version of the Esther story that I have. So for anyone who can’t make it to a Seder come celebrate with us! I’ll open the stream at around 6:30 pm mountain time when I get home for the day.

A heads-up ahead of time! Light will be streaming the story of Esther for Purim. I’ll reblog closer to time too.

Ladyshadowdrake has had a massively bad day. 

Link me cute animals being cute and precious and come ask me about tentacles, or whatever.

so, if octopus have tastebuds on their arms, then do tentacle monsters….sortof pet their food before they eat it? 

“SHAD GET YOUR ARM OUT OF THE ICECREAM, AND GET A BOWL LIKE A GOOD DENZIEN.”

WHAT? How did I never realize that tastebud-suckers were a thing??

That puts a whole new spin on snuggly tentacle creatures who cuddle with people, now doesn’t it? 

I swear, I just want to give you a hug.

Rose wins at life.  Again!
