I felt the exact same way when I saw this in theaters. Combined with my history of SI (and tbh I wish I could trigger warn for this gif when I reblog, but I don’t know how to hide it once it’s already there), this is one of the more fucked up cinematic images I have seen recently.
If you want, you can click on “as…” after ‘Reblog photo’ and then click on “as text” and provide a link to the photo for reference maybe.
…and hello, my town, at #1! I’m SO not proud. Or surprised.
Congrats, Milwaukee. Way to go.
I wish I was more surprised, but I know milwaukee too well for that. It’s not milwaukee’s fault though. Wisconsin is fucked up like that.
No. 3: Chicago
"The city is increasingly diverse, however, with Latinos now making up a full 25 percent of the population. And there are pockets of integration, including the North Side neighborhood of Rogers Park, where a mixture of whites, blacks, Asians and Latinos live."
Not surprising that Chicago is so high on the list, but Rogers Park represent
“The Social Security system, in my opinion, is a flawed design, period. But having said that, the design would work a lot better if we had stable demographic trends. We don’t have enough workers to support the retirees … . A third of the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion.”—
And it all comes back to money, doesn’t it? They don’t want you to “save your baby” because they believe life is precious and sacred. They want you to do it because they need them to be good little future workers and tax payers.
“There is no such thing as good guys and bad guys. Do you know what a hardcore jihadist looks like when he is dying? Shocked. He woke up and believed that what he was doing was right. Don’t demonize your enemy. Its not personal.”—Justin Watt, the whistleblower in the Mahmudiyah killings and rape via reddit
I like the NYT article it’s talking about—I’m in an interracial relationship and we want to have kids in a few years so it’s nice to hear that the population of multiracial children is increasing. But I hate the creepy, borderline-fetishistic way the Gawker article reduces this to just sex (between people of different races! How sexily ~exotic~!). And ugh at everything about being “colorblind” or “the slow evolution of humanity into one common shade of light brown“—way to reduce all multiracial people to one single monolithic entity and basically support the idea of completely ignoring that people come from different backgrounds. And like, nice to know that this guy will take any hypothetical future kids of mine as proof that America is “sexy at last.”
