look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

#same with the ‘work with what u love cause money doesnt matter!!11!’ mentality god fucking damn

I really think you're taking the casting of the Maximoff twins way too personally. I'm sure Joss Whedon wasn't out to offend you when he made his decision. He wanted two young fresh up and coming actors who already had Hollywood acclaim and that is understandable.



hey pal, fuck you.

joss whedon probably wasn’t out to offend me personally, no, but guess what butterplum, he did anyway.

because i grew up in a neighbourhood where the other parents told their children they weren’t allowed to play with me because i was dirty and untrustworthy and a thief.
because i had ethnic slurs hurled at me from my fellow students and other residents throughout the majority of my life. because the german word for gypsy was spraypainted onto our house wall 8 times throughout the years we lived there and, on one memorable occasion, keyed into my mum’s car.
because my mum’s mother died in a russian concentration camp and no one would help her father raise his five daughters alone because everyone viewed him as waste, expendable.
because my mother eventually had to fend for herself on the streets as an orphan when she was only 13 years old because she had literally no other choice. because she was mistreated in the orphanage she eventually went to, and because she was thrown out of three schools for “misconduct” that was really just profiling based on the fact that she had roma heritage.
because even though she managed to leave that part of her life mostly behind and found a family and get a job, her sisters weren’t so lucky. one of them permanently ended up in a mental institution after being denied healthcare by the country she lived in due to her heritage and her psychosis grew unchecked until it evolved into fullblown schizophrenia. one of them killed herself. she hasn’t heard from the other two in years and isn’t even sure if they’re alive anymore.
because 90% of roma people live in poverty. because 45% of those fall under extreme poverty with living conditions without water and electricity and basic things like food. (x)

so yes, i take it personally. because it is fucking personal.
the maximoffs were literally the only representation of romani people i’ve encountered so far that weren’t either a stereotype or a criminal. the fact that they were allowed to be heroes and stand for positive ideals despite their background was revolutional for me when i first learned about them, because my entire life i’ve been made to feel that being roma is bad and disgusting.

it’s bad enough that wanda maximoff was already turned into an ableist joke and fridged twice in the comics.

and joss whedon looked at their background history and how hugely important it is for minorities and deemed it not important enough to be included.
that’s especially horrible considering the fact that not only are roma people treated like scum everywhere, anti-semitism is still very much a constant threat to jewish people everywhere and anti-semitic hate crimes are on a rise.

the fact that joss whedon didn’t even waste one thought on the repercussions of his decision when he retconned the maximoff twins to be british is frankly disgusting and speaks volumes about the kind of person he is.
and if you look at his decision and find absolutely nothing wrong with it, then it speaks volumes about the kind of person you are, too.


Diversity in 2013 New York Times Young Adult Bestsellers

Over the past year or so, I’ve examined diversity in the Publishers Weekly bestsellers (here’s 2012 and here’s 2013) as well as the Best Fiction for Young Adults (here’s 2013, here’s 2014). One list I haven’t looked at until now is the New York Times bestseller lists for young adult books.

My conclusions? There’s nothing really surprising about the diversity on the New York Times bestseller lists for young adult books. They tell the same story that Publishers Weekly does, but with a slightly different sample: There isn’t much diversity.

Anonymous asked:

do you have any tips/thoughts on dealing with a difference of personal views on social issues and the general views of your religion (in my case, catholicism)? you seem to be able to reconcile your beliefs with the dogma of the church, and i've been having some trouble with it.



There are a lot of answers I could give to this. Most of them involve politely ignoring the parts of the catechism I don’t like, selective belief and a discussion of the church as in-the-world too often of-the-world. Round it out with something about loving a fallible institution even when you don’t agree with it, etc.

But my favorite answer is: the Nicene Creed.

I’m sure you’ve seen it before, the Nicene(-Constantinople) Creed was ratified at Council of Nicea in the 4th century AD, one of the very first Catholic councils. It, or the Apostles’ Creed (which is from around the same time, I just prefer the Nicene), is said at every mass. If Catholicism has a litmus test, this is it.

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God; begotten, not made, one in being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, by the Holy Spirit was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered, died, and was buried, and rose again on the third day he rose again, in fulfillment of the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, he has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins, we look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

It is my firm belief that if it is not somewhere in the Nicene Creed, The Our Father, or explicitly stated by Jesus, it’s a secondary concern within the faith. Anything else is a distortion of the credo, a placing of sexual mores (I’m assuming that’s what you’re talking about) above theology, above the sermon on the mount, above forgiveness and resurrection and bread and light from light.

and that’s not what you’re called each sunday to reaffirm your belief in.

so fuck it.
