Johanna does not have time for this Hunger Games nonsense
she’s just one of those contestants who is constantly having her mouth, hands, and other parts blurred out on television.
“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.”
mockingjay was a great book
everyone had a good time
prim had a blast
fun for the whole family
I hope she takes it. Then I want her to have no lines. Instead whenever there is a silent moment I want her to do a somersault across the screen as if she were a tumbleweed blowing in the wind. I have such great ideas today, I’m proud of me.
Actual sneak peek of the 100th episode:
It’s disgusting and horribly simplifies the idea that minorities can differ on ways to liberate themselves.
Not to mention it ridicules and mocks one of the most visible and mainstream disabled characters in media (i would argue).
AT NO POINT IS CHARLES XAVIER AN APPEASER, YOU SIMPLE FUCKS.
Tell me how educating mutant children and ensuring an entire generation doesn’t end up on the street is appeasing your oppressors? Tell me how making certain they not only receive housing and food and clothing, but education provided and taught to them by mutants for mutants specifically is appeasing their oppressors?
Charles Xavier’s school should not exist. Charles is the perfect example of privilege used for the sole purpose of knocking down the entire system that allows such privilege’s to exist. He is a rich, “human” appearing white man. He utilizes all of this to make sure the school is kept out of the media spotlight and HARDWIRED WITH THE BEST DEFENSE SYSTEMS MONEY CAN BY.
YOU FUCKING MESS WITH XAVIER’S STUDENTS AND IT’S NOT GOING TO BE FUN AND GAMES ANYMORE, YOU MOTHERFUCKERS.
Xavier believes in the power of education. He differs with Magneto because he does not believe violent force is necessary to change attitudes and minds. If you think this is appeasement, I have news for you, you’re an idiot who barely has a grasp on how social change is brought about.
You need both ideals.
Charles Xavier AND Magneto are both revolutionaries. You demean them BOTH to assume one isn’t working just as hard to ensure a future where their people aren’t fully liberated.
Charles is an educator and a teacher, naturally he believes in the power of words and dialogue and education. And guess what, you basic bastards, you need education. Some people respond better to open dialogue and controversial debates in order to bring about change in their own communities.
Others are maliciously bigoted and are past that point and are a clear and present danger to thousands.
You need Magneto to sweep up that trash.
Yeah, Charles is such an appeaser going around and teaching all these mutants kids that they are worth something and can be heroes and valued by their own people.
What an appeaser he is teaching them how to utilize their powers to defend themselves and to protect others.
He’s saved hundreds of kids’ lives.
His methods towards mutant liberation differ from Magneto’s because surprise, surprise motherfucker, not everyone in a minority group has a hive mind and individuals are entitled to have different ideals and rationales.
Nonviolent resistance is still resistance.
The person who is running that meme is an idiot who is probably not interested in fucking pulling apart the complex nature of resistance movements or liberation politics and is much more interested in demeaning a disabled character for funsies.
And as an FYI, the majority of people who side with Magneto love Charles. We just don’t fully agree with all of his methods. That sure as fuck does not mean we think he is bowing down to his own oppressors. God fucking damn that’s pretty sick and insulting to any real life minorities who utilize nonviolence and education as their own methods for liberating themselves.
THIS IS WHERE I LOST IT

"I know what you want me to say; you want me to say yes, it was consequential Yes I agreed to it because then you can get Liam on a technicality and he’ll get a little bit of punishment for the wrong crime. And you will feel good about that because really that’s more than I should expect. I want him to go to jail, believe me, I do, but in order to make that happen I would have to give away the only thing that I have left; the truth. You know what you did to me, I know what you did to me. So no, I’m not going to lie about it. No, it was not consensual. He raped me."
