Top Gear's Richard Hammond answers that everyday question - can a car survive the thrust of a Boeing 747's engines? A Citreon 2CV and a Ford Mondeo are the test subjects lending a helping hand to find out.

Anonymous asked: so what youre saying is that you support cis people? after all theyve done to oppress you as a "queer" individual?


Answer:

amazingatheist:

stoppity:

Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.

Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.

Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.

I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece. 

In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances. 

Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?

No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.

Did i just read something rational on Tumblr. Doesn’t this violate some law of nature?

DOCTORS ARE LITERALLY THE WORST. →

Following a pregnancy scare I went to a doctor. It was an awful experience. The first five minutes was spent giving me the “protected sex” lecture and explaining that I may need to take a blood test. I agreed, I had been pretty dumb. What followed though was 45 minutes of him telling me to lose…

A healthcare professional concerned about your health? Literally the worst!

If Wal-Mart Paid Its Employees a Living Wage, How Much Would Prices Go Up? (2:02)

This video crunches the numbers on how much Walmart, the single biggest beneficiary of the food stamp economy, might have to raise prices across the board to help a typical worker earn a living wage.

This video was created by Slate magazine and Marketplace. It’s part of a series entitled The Secret Life of a Food Stamp.

Among the stupider things I found while hunting for gifs.
Obviously when you’re not a Vanderbiltian silver fox, the sun just shifts it’s lighting all the time to make you look the exact same in all situations. 
This is a good post by one of the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender on color theory, and how color can look completely different depending on surrounding colors and context. 

Nope. Pretty sure there is some accuracy to this meme. Especially when dark skin symbolizes poverty and “fair skin” equates to wealth in certain cultures. You tried tho.

Nope

So even if you weren’t wrong on the art, animation, and color theory, you’d be wrong on the meme. Stay mad tho :)

Don’t care. It still doesn’t stifle the point the idea of whitewashing. The only one mad is you for trying to act as if colorism shouldn’t be a factor people should investigate in. Even if you are right, this is just a pathetic attempt at pretending as if “everything ” is not about color, which is false. 

Considering you think think it is false that everything is not about color  - really? even the heat death of the universe? mimes? what about clowns? the number of known isotopes of uranium on planet earth? the temperature at which osmium melts? - to the point that even fan made porn comics in entirely different lightings and contexts from the movies they’re based on enter into your social justice tractor beam, I have a feeling you’re at least a little mad! 
And of course I was right that you’d call the fan artist racist, or in this case colorist! I guess it is now ‘investigation’ to totally ignore context, shadow work, one photo (and much of the movie) obviously taking place in greater darkness and with greater attention to lighting, reality, subjectivity, color theory (link provided above!), animation, basically everything all in order to create more rage over the shades of colour used in fan made porn comic drawings. I already suspected forensics had hit a rut, based on increasingly mundane procedural television shows taking over the world, but now I have evidence! !!
All that really does stifle the point on whitewashing, and makes the entire subject look like a joke now. What it comes down to is you is caring about one fan artist drawing one character from a movie, when the movie character remains the default, famous character, and has the same skin color as he always has. Priorities xeople! There are degrees to which things matter and are harmful, and calling it whitewashing for fans to draw whatever the hell without profit in such a way that doesn’t draw on or influence a culture or people in any meaningful capacity kind of makes a joke out of colorism, and makes it sound like you just want to police the brushes of people more talented than you, which likely includes big-time animators and people who make porn comics :) You know, they might not have found the right color to use! Unless you can actually go and find the shade of color they used, you really have nothing to go off of, because, as linked to, colors can look different depending on context, even if you use the exact same one. Katara and her daughter and Korra in ATLA look like some are darker or lighter than others despite having the exact same shade of skin color. That’s the mystery of art and color theory! A mystery you’d be aware of if you read links instead of finding the right opportunity to lob buzzwords at people. And even if the artist purposely chose a lighter color, then a subjectivity comes into play - why? what options were available to them? what does it do? was it the best option they had? - that really makes your ‘investigation’ fruitless from the get-go. But…
