So during the wtnv livestream last night the-secret-police-of-night-vale said something really funny about Cecil having a weather button and I had an extreme need to draw it. :)
The term “gypsy” is actually a non-preferred and derogatory term (slur) for Roma people. The slur assumes that the Romani came from Egypt, which is not true. For those of you who aren’t aware of anti-Roma bigotry, the Roma are an indigenous people whom originated in northern India 1,000 years ago who continue to be pushed from nation to nation and mistreated. They are frequently denied legal status and social services and often suffer from poorer health status than that of the general population and other marginalized groups within the UK and the US. Up to 220,000 - 500,000 Romani were slaughtered in the Holocaust, though a definite estimation can not be determined.
There are many stereotypes about the Roma, but the most predominant is that they are all gazing into a crystal ball, reading palms and tea leaves or divining the future with a deck of Tarot cards and that they’re all sociopathic drifters who steal children and anything else that isn’t tied down.
Please don’t continue to use this slur in ignorance.

I want more chubby people in main stream media. I want chubby girls with tummy rolls who don’t have perfect hourglass figures, who aren’t the butt of the joke, who inspire people. Who are strong and independent and so much more than their weight. Can I please have that? Can I be that??

customer: ”can i have a large pepsi?”

It just kills me when writers create franchises where like 95% of the speaking roles are male, then get morally offended that all of the popular ships are gay. It’s like, what did they expect?
the term “aro-ace” is especially lovely because it also sounds like “arrow ace.” are you aromantic and asexual or are you an incredibly skilled and deadly archer. surprise, you’re both
Let’s not forget the original arrow ace:
ARTEMIS JOKE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG

I think it speaks to the fact that Snape was fucking mean that Neville’s worst fear was not Bellatrix Lestrange, the person who tortured his parents until they could no longer remember who they were or even Voldemort, whose name the act was committed in, but his school teacher who bullied him nine months at a time for years on end.
Daniel Radcliffe wrote a thank you note and then some to the Dublin minor football team he partied with in 2012 x
Kristen is tired of shitty girl power movies
I apologize to Kirsten Stewart for all the times I made fun of her acting in twilight
Her acting in twilight was SUPERB.
Has anyone actually read twilight that made fun of her? That IS the character. Dull, boring and needs to try and kill herself just to have hallucinations of her creepy ass ex boyfriend.
Some supurb acting for a shit character with no personality
