Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…
You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”
I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”
He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

Do you think that the Americans who complain about some of the things on Doctor Who know that they’re also missing cultural context? Like the portrayal of Queen Elizabeth—that’s a Black Adder reference. You might not like it, but for this and other things that come from outside the US, be aware that stuff is being referenced that you may not know about. (This in no way excuses the stuff Moffat says in interviews, because ick. But still.)
That reminds me—please stop fetishizing British accents, America, and making English/European people into Dream Boyfriends or villains or what have you. PoC do not exist for you to flavour your whatever with ‘exotic’ appeal, and Europeans don’t exist for your main characters to fuck or replace sucky boyfriends with. Also, Europeans come from different cultural streams, do Australians, Canadians, etc. It’s not all just a wall of whiteness that would keep the Walkers of the North back for another thousand years.
Do your research, darling authors. I can only flag this stuff in the manus that cross my desk.

For reasoning why I picked said country click on the photo and read the caption. Some may be false due to the fact that no evidence was found on the location on the film. Some have been confirmed and some have not been but have many elements that lead to a certain country. Also some (like Jasmine) have a location but not a specified one so I just inferred. If you have any corrections or suggestions on my post don’t hesitate to tell me in my ask box
so i was looking up stuff about birth control throughout history and

"And The Villain Still Pursues Her"
there’s literally no where to go
I’m so sickened by this I want to vomit onto these pieces’ of shits faces.
Yeah, fuck this. FUCK these people I am so mad
Three innocent Jews got killed, who had nothing to do with Israel, and people bring up the death of Palestinians?!? The nerve… Fuck this.
This is what you sound like when you mention Palestinians’ deaths when something bad happens to Jewish people. Don’t cheapen two tragedies instead of one, and if you feel compelled to say this…don’t.
