i’m torrenting yakimono in 1080p and if this is anything like the time i torrented les mis in 1080p we’re in for a disaster
this is a disaster
Oh jeez I am the whitest whitey, I want bland as fuck food, and I got a sandwich not knowing they’d put jalapeños and tomatoes on it and it’s horrible
And people say we’re privileged, psshhh
Hobbits are gentle creatures
look, i like him as well as the next guy and i can’t control what other people like
if you put bendytits crumplesack in your Marauders headcanon i’m going to need you to keep it at least 3523459450054 miles away from me
It’s a metaphor
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
this remains to this day one of the best things that ever happened to me
I’m not. If a PoC blogger gets fed up and types out a post about white people without clarifying that they meant “not all white people”, or a trans person posts about cis people without saying “not all cis people” I am not offended.
Do you want to know why?
Because in that situation, there is only one of three possible realities:
- I think about it and understand that I don’t do those things that the blogger is talking about, and the post isn’t about me really, so I move on.
- I think about it and realize that “oh shit” I DO sometimes do whatever it is they are talking about, and I fucking realize that I need to fix that behavior because holy hells I don’t want to be enforcing oppressive bullshit.
- It’s a joke at the expense of the oppressive majority. Seriously.
That’s it. Those are the only Three possibilities. The post either isn’t about me, or I’m getting called out on shit I need to fix, or it’s a joke (and not a joke at the expense of the marginalized but at the expense of the privileged). That’s it. Not something I’m going to fight about.

It’s really messed up that Typhoid Mary is such a prolific figure in science. She’s held up as this dirty immigrant who infected tens of people with Salmonella typhi. Everyone knows her name and that she was an Irish immigrant. Her treatment by scientific literature, even without the writing flair of the arts, is still rather crude. It lends itself so well to the pervasive theme of the ‘dirty immigrant,’ it also kind of figures that this women IN science, as the first asymptomatic carrier of S. typhi, is ridiculed so thoroughly. She didn’t even know she was a carrier.
Her name was Mary Mallon, she infected 49 people while she worked as a cook. She was put into forced isolation twice by the New York Public Health Department. She died in isolation after almost thirty years of isolation.
She was a person not some pathogen-carrying nursery rhyme. She was the first asymptomatic carrier ever studied, (not even voluntarily, really), and how do we repay that incredible debt? We name her memory after the disease that ruined her life, we hold her up as the prime example of the dangers of being unhygienic with an insidious undertone of her poor hygiene being the result of her immigrant status. I am also sure that had she been male, we would not be making light of her plight 76 years after her death and I can prove it.
In England, a milkman infected somewhere around 200 people, he is referred to as Mr. N and shows up almost never as an example. In fact, googling Mr. N does not yield much in the way of relevant results and gee I wonder why that is, despite this Englishman infecting about four times as many people.
What happened and has continued to happen to Ms. Mallon is disgraceful and people need to get their acts together. ‘Typhoid Mary’ being used in peer reviewed, research and journal articles needs to stop because that is not who she was and shame on us for treating her that way.
