I wonder if anyone on this site has seen the Captain America movies.
I am going to play this new game where I won’t trust a single thing gentiles say until they prove that they’re not “one of those gentiles”.
"Tumblr fave Mark Ruffalo makes a good point… but I hear he’s a gentile. Can you prove he’s not ‘one of those’?"
"Okay, your post is pretty good… but I see in your description that you don’t mention if you’re Jewish. So you’re a gentile? Show me receipts that you’re not an antisemite."
Every time I see a cross necklace I’m gonna be like “tell me your opinion on the IRA right now.”
I kind of want Scottish independence just to piss off George Galloway.
I PROMISE you that every single depressed person has been told to exercise already, you are never ever ever going to be the first person to suggest that to any depressed person ever.
I love how the notes on this post are filling up with people going “but what if I really AM the first person to suggest it/what if ME suggesting it is the tipping point that makes them actually try it!!!!!!!!” yeah you’re actually not that special sorry.
god. it’s like they only ever read half of the story. harvey milk was deeply closeted, deeply concerned with appearing straight and respectable to his colleagues. a math major. served in the navy. worked on wall street while volunteering for the goldwater campaign. and maybe in some lesser, unkind universe, he continued down this soul-destroying path of self-denial. maybe he settled down and married a woman and had a kid or two and died of old age.
but he walked away from it. all of it. came out of the closet and left every semblance of safety to live openly and run for office explicitly to promote the rights of his community. his neighbours. he was a beacon of hope for the gay community, obviously, but there are other folks he helped that you don’t hear about. san francisco’s labour unions. the bay area’s asian-american communities. the city’s underpaid contract workers. his first priorities were constantly and consistently the establishment’s last priorities. and he did all of this while living openly as a gay man, fucking demanding respect, weathering pervasive death threats. do i even need to remind you how his life ended? how his death echoed throughout the gay community? what he inspired?
you don’t get to do this. you don’t get to freeze him in this moment in time, in the closet, and accuse him of retrogressive republicanism when he literally spend the latter half of his life fighting who he had been and the social forces that had made him that way. you don’t get to ignore who he was and what he did and what he stood for. shame.
