we’ll meet again
I die without you.
did tumblr just make a free! horror movie?
Five years ago, the Iwatobi swimming club disbanded after a tragic death of one of the children, Rin Matsuoka. Although the only witness of the scene, Haruka Nanase, was unable to speak a word about what happened at the pool that night, the death has been deemed accidental.
With the three ex-members of the club now in high school and deciding to compete again, strange things have been happening at the pool. After one of the competing team’s swimmers drowns during practice, Haruka understands that this won’t stop unless he returns back to Iwatobi swimming pool and confronts the thing waiting for him.
it got better
Aren’t my girls just LOV-ELY?
Remember- as long as you go to the right voting location for your CURRENT address you have the right to vote NO MATTER WHAT.
Don’t let them tell you otherwise! Bring your ID, your proof of address, and other documentation (if required); then if you are told there is a problem, request a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. They have to let you fill one out, and they give you a receipt so you can look it up and make sure that your vote counted.
Let me know if you have any issues or questions, I was a poll manager for 6 elections, so I know my stuff ;-)

Rather than go through the same loop of arguing with people over the shit I post, this is my Get With it or Get Lost disclaimer.
Get The Fuck Off My Page If The Following Applies to You:
Pro Tip: If you can’t handle People of Color being upset about racism, get the fuck off tumblr.
- If you believe that racism can be against whites
- If you are transphobic or homophobic
- If you believe that whites can be oppressed for being white
- If you believe that you’re colorblind
- You say or agree with the phrase “We’re all human” in the context of racism
- If you believe that you’re welcome (as a white person) to join in on discussions about POC for POC
- If you believe that having a POC as a friend/partner/fuck-buddy/vague acquaintance makes you immune to being racist
- If you believe in reverse-racism
- If you’re comfortable with the contribution of “But we’re not ALL like that!”
- If you don’t believe in white privilege
- If you believe that you should be able to say nigga/any variation “because black people say it”
- If you believe that cultural appropriation is “okay because X, Y, and she looks really pretty with Z on so blah-de-fucking-blah”
- If you see nothing wrong with the OWS movement
If any of the above hurt your precious white feelings, don’t even entertain the idea of arguing with me about it. I don’t care.
Educate yourself. Here are a few starters that may help.
This tumblr is not, nor will ever be a place designated towards educating people, especially on POC issues and confronting institutionalized racism. I am not Google, Ask Jeeves, or your personal oracle of wisdom.
This tumblr is for what I find interesting and relevant to my life. I’m not always polite. I lack much of a filter, especially when I read some shit that rubs me the wrong way. My opinion is not representative of how all POC think (Why the fuck do I even have to say this?). I am quite the individual, I assure you.
If you have an issue with anything stated in the above, please take my advice. Re: Get The Fuck Off My Page.
Too many people are following me again. Read it then if you can’t get with it, gtfo.

I say bring back this classic pairing, and I mean in the form where Kori is taller than Dick please.
She…she’s not anymore?
I think it differs from artist to artist nowadays, with some they’re about the same height, with others either Kori or Dick is a bit taller than the other, but then you get the artists who insist on drawing Dick taller than Kori despite the facts that A. To be as expert a gymnast as Dick is he probably shouldn’t be taller than 5’10, and B. Kori is from an Amazonian alien race.
It makes me miss the Teen Titans animated series too, the animators were always consistent with their height difference, and that always made me feel more secure about the fact that it was ok for women to be taller than men because Robin was only at Starfire’s shoulder in height but they really loved each other anything and now I’m having FEELS BECAUSE I MISS TEEN TITANS IT WAS THE BEST SHOW.
“If Disney hadn’t been so egotistical and accepted the Powhatan tribe’s offer to make Pocahontas an accurate movie in the first place, Pocahontas would have been a much better movie. I just can’t believe that Disney denied the Powhatan tribe’s offer to assist and later had the gall to say that Pocahontas was “responsible, accurate, and respectful.”“
Oh gosh you guys…
I don’t know what’s more disappointing: what Disney did (<—— read ittt) or the comments under this confession.
“Who cares about accuracy it’s about the magic~!”
But, they used the names of real people, and based it off a real native nation that still exists today…
Pocahontas’ (or, Matoaka’s) real story was much more poignant and interesting. Even if it has a tragic ending. I think a different film production company (like Miramax) that is sponsored by Disney would have made a much better film adaptation.
They could have at least changed names, made up a fictional “new world” type country that wasn’t America, and said it was loosely based on true events. Even that would have been better. But there are still many people who think a) Pocahontas never existed or b) it happened in some way similar to how it was portrayed in the Disney film. I have even seen a biography special on a network aimed for kids where the teenage host said something along the lines of the following:
“Pocahontas was a princess [false] who pretty much did whatever she wanted! [false]”
Where do you think they got that idea of her from… 8(
It’s just all kinds of very really super duper depressing actually
And really, the sequel is even more offensive than the original
Pocahontas and John Rolfe’s marriage was anything but romantic
When you really think about it, there’s very little that can be described as magical about how Disney handled the story of this woman’s life.
