I wish Itachi was around to see Sakura basically become a member of Might Dai, Gai, and Rock Lee’s Circle of Winners Who Became Frighteningly Powerful Through Their Hard Work and Motivation can you just imagine Sasuke pulling some broody shit on Sakura and Itachi just places a hand on Sasuke’s shoulder, eyes wide”brother no we need to go we need to leave NOW” Itachi is afraid to look at Sakura directly in the eyes he knows what’s up
he used the word “retarded” (which is no longer an acceptable term to describe anyone with intellectual disabilities) as a negative word to describe a game console and a fan asked him politely over twitter not to do that, which, you know, is a reasonable request, seeing as it’s incredibly fucking offensive:
but jontron, being the empathetically stunted and ethically bankrupt gamer beardo we all knew in our heart of hearts that he was, blew up the entire thing, tried cracking jokes that were shitty even if you didn’t care about the slur, and generally acted like a huge asshat about it. Neil Cicierga called Jon out on twitter, telling him he was being a huge douchecanoe, and in response Jon just gushed at Neil, telling him he loved his work etc. completely ignoring the point at hand.
and then, just when you thought that you could pick up the shambles that remain of your loving devotion to Jontron’s quirky chubby gamer antics and reassemble some form of acceptance and tolerance for him as a person, he went on to call out Tim Schafer, who linked a video about violence against female gamers, and started attacking Tim about how men are depicted just as poorly as women are, exposing his final form to his fans: a whiny, self-important holier-than-thou MRA fucktruck whose only purpose in life is to prove everyone wrong about everything that isn’t about white male neckbeards.
and lo, built on nothing but piggybacking on Egoraptor’s success and cheetos dust, Jontron’s sprawling empire begins to crumble and collapse beneath him. former fans look on, horrified. i sit back and sip on a big mug of “i told you so.”
The video is ok cause I’m still ten but if I was older is say it was awesome I’m not saying I like girls but it’s amazing and I love the song +Nicki Minaj don’t care what any hater got to say I loved it Nicki is awesome
Lol when brotp defenders are like ‘im homosexual and i dont want to f*ck all my female friends” woah chill, nobody is saying you cant have queer platonic friendships, just dont tag that shit as brotp - it’s a gross term that promotes the idea that male/male relations are more import and to be idolised over any other
Like the term itself is gross
And it’s just a weird coincident that ‘#brotp’ seems to occur mainly with queer ships
if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.
Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and killed by racist vigilante forces is not an unfortunate coincidence.
The New York Times deliberately played into an archaic American tradition in devaluing both the merit of black life and the tragedy of black death.
They chose the day of his funeral, as his family, friends and activists everywhere have to grapple with a human being lost to pontificate about how he was “no angel”. Michael Brown was many things to many people; a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew and another black causality of murderous police institutions and today, amidst all the racist violence he, his loved ones and community have had to endure, he was going to finally receive the respect and moment of honor he deserved and NYT decided today, of all days, to tune in their audience onto wholly irrelevant facts about his life - that in turn, transform the very injustice surrounding his death and the following police violence that plagued Ferguson into a national panel about whether or not his death is actually worth mourning and their language suggested that to them, it indeed is not.
This was hardly an accident or mistake. This is the perpetual hostility that is met against black life in America. The consensus is that black people deserve no respect and for black life to be legitimized and honored, we must meet a list of prerequisites. Subsequently, if black people aren’t valued, neither are our deaths understood as tragic or murders seen as criminal action.
This has been the atmosphere of America since its inception and much has not improved.
what do I call characters I don't ship sexually but I want them to braid hair and talk about things together, like when I want to see people as best friends where I just want them to be roommates and each others wingman and tell dumb jokes and half inside stories
the term that I see a lot of people using for platonic relationships that are deeper than a casual friendship but not sexual or romantic is “queer platonic”
sometimes I’ll tag stuff ‘qp’ and that’s what I mean
my personal hell is going to be an eternity of driving around my schools full parking structure 5 minutes before class starts and the only thing on the radio is talk show hosts monologuing about how sasuke uchiha did nothing wrong
honestly, i don't really like the term brotp in general tho (even for het pairings), because it goes along with the "brotherly love" "bromance" kind of thing as if only guys can have that kind of tight friendship with each other? idk it makes me feel like it's reinforcing the "girls are catty brats who don't like being friends w/ other girls" idea
Exactly!!!! yeah exactly. I didn’t mean that I use the actual term brotp but I know a lot of people that are arguing for its use just mean it as a term to describe a non-romantic platonic pairing. I hate the word completely and it’s exactly from things like “bromance” which were created to glorify male friendship while keeping it heterosexual and that’s gross as hell.
I've only ever applied brotp to het pairings, mostly because people just make them a couple SO OFTEN because media is saturated with heteronormativity that they can't see men and women as friends without sex
Yeah honestly me too and it’s only really a problem bc it is almost exclusively and aggressively applied to gay ships but I still wouldn’t reblog a het ship that I ship platonically and tag it with anything like that bc I know it’s lame when you’re going through tagviewer and you see someone take your shippy art and be like ‘i don’t ship it but’
This all comes down to basically artists are going to see your tags and roll their eyes at you asserting how you interpret their art despite a lot of the time the intent being glaringly obvious. and it became a Bigger Deal bc it specifically was happening to gay ships.

YEAH YOU’RE RIGHT THIS THREAD DID BRING UP SOME OTHER POINTS I MISSED!!! THANKS BUDDY!!!
1) the word bro shouldn’t be applied to girls
2) people who like and use the word ‘brotp’ say it is the same as ‘girlcrush’ which is exactly what I’ve been saying bc it means ‘No Homo’
3) people get annoyed when it is used for Het pairings which is hilarious bc this is not about how it is applied to het pairings and het shippers whining about this is literally missing the entire point completely in such an unbelievably ironic way
phoenixyfriend said: My biggest issue is not knowing the artist’s intent. Sometimes I know what the artist ships, but then sometimes I have no idea and hesitate over which tag to put it in and have to guess? So some people might just be doing that and choosing wrong?
I guess my thing is why do you need a brotp tag. do people have like, friend shipping lists? that you need a tag that says ‘I ship this but NOT in a HOMO way’ either tag it with a ship tag bc I know ppl like to put stuff they ship under a specific tag but like. Basically if you think it’s a shippy thing please don’t tag with no homo. It is so easy to look at the source if you are really like, sweating over not knowing the artists intent.
Over the past few days we’ve already exchanged some words about this. I reblogged Mary’s comic lampooning your comic (and others like it), expressing my approval of its message. I also subtweeted your work fairly obviously. We are friendly acquaintances and my behavior was…
