I always speak in hyperbole.

I might not find myself interesting, but apparently other people do.

queerascat:

looking around Tumblr (and the internet in general) i noticed a distinct lack of QPOC-related pride graphics… and anyone who follows my blog has probably noticed that i love graphics! so, as usual, i decided to make some of my own for people to use. they are extremely minimalistic, as is my style, but i hope they can be of use to people.

please feel free to use these as you see fit. if i missed something or there’s something specific that you’d like a graphic like this for, feel free to send me an ask.

notes:

  • clarification of the acronyms is included because while the meanings are obvious to some of us, there are still many people who are unfamiliar with them. let’s change that!
  • i decided not to focus on sexual/romantic orientations with APOC being the exception. why APOC? because not all asexual people self-identify as queer or as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, so none of the other graphics apply to them. however, i still feel that POC visibility and pride in the asexual community is extremely important.
  • i debated with myself over whether to use singular (person/woman/man) or plural (people/women/men) as the acronyms encompass both, but in the end i decided to go with singular as i envision people uses these graphics to show their own personal pride more than group pride?
  • the colors used for the non-binary pride graphic are from the non-binary flag proposed by thejasmineelf. these colors are by no means official or widely agreed upon at present.
  • i considered using "enby" instead of “non-binary person”, but i’m still not entirely sold on that term and i know that some people passionately hate it.

Aussie Builders surprise public with loud empowering statements in new Snickers Australia Ad.

Well this made me cry

I hope it made you cry because this is the part in a Snickers commercial where people do weird things because they’re hungry. This isn’t some progressive commercial that promotes women empowerment; it makes fun of the entire idea by saying men would only do these kinds of things if they were hungry - or, to put it simply, no man in his right mind would ever do this.

"You’re not you when you’re hungry."

Fuck you, Snickers.

^^^^^ I noticed this the first time I watched the ad and was shocked no one else said anything about it, or at the very least picked up on it. It could have been a good commercial, but the “punch line” ruins the entire message.

Ugh. This.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”
