black lives matter
me: i am actually a kind and understanding person
brain: see?! that's why you are BAD
@mcatnip im glad you asked!!
You see, social media might have taught me that being understanding and kind towards people can support and encourage the harm they inflict on other people, so the less harmful option would be to just completly cut people off and yet here i am
#babka talks #you see i am not trying to like #solve conflicts peacefully. #there are some things i don't tolerate #but they're like my personal things #and understanding people means understanding why they're doing stuff not excusing them #if you're being purposefuly nbphobic on internet and send death threats you're doing this because you want to feel morally superior and don't value others #that doesn't mean i should be kind to you #on the other hand people can literally tell me my name and pronouns are too complicate for them and ill go #understandable have a nice day #not because im sacred they'll ditch me #or because i don't think my name/pronouns are valid #but hey they're too complicated even for me #i don't have a faintest idea what i am #and that's what makes me a bad person because i am contributing to oppression and shit #education and confrontation really isnt my strongest suit either but thats another thing8 notes
i understand that just leaving work in the middle of the workday and taking a 40minute walk is uh. not common practice but thats the most productive ive ever been since the pandemic begun so.
#babka talks #thats work from home for me!! #idk how i'll manage when it's over lol #i need like a month of rest asdfghjkl #but i can't even rest on weekends since i can't go too far outside #so i overwork myself with side projects and then sleep at my actual job so #frick im venting again #i understand how incredibly lucky i am to do this btw #but i still wish i could hhh. Improve My Living Situation and i don't know howww #by improve i mean #move out3 notes
where's that thin semantic line between "you can't really 'overdo social justice' because people are still suffering way beyond acceptable levels" and "attacking an LGBT+ creator of Steven Universe for the lack of representation in Steven Universe is pretty unnecessary and harmful"
oh, you must have misundertstood.. I am the overpowered anime character here. Hello!

not all colors are availiable for everything (even though the entire pallete is like b/w), but stuff is movable anf there's Flames
i know how extremely overworked and underpaid most retail workers are but still i don't see why it's okay to tell me stuff like "we're gonna do that waffle so good just like we do your MOM"
Okay, so this "old people shouldn't be able to vote" is spreading again, as in "they shouln't because they don't have much left to live" and im so tired that this is passed as a legitimage argument
Imagine living in a government, the laws of which apply to you just as much as they do to everyone else, and also being more dependent on societalgovernmental support (since old people can't work, get sick, are more fragile and can be neglected by younger members of their families pretty often), having rights, wants, needs and ideas about how government should work
And have all of them disregared because "well you're gonna die soon lol"
No one has ever suggested terminally ill people don't have the right to vote! Because you don't get to joke about "farting in the elevator" about terminally ill people , however, it's somehow easily done about the old people. Because terminally ill pesron can be young and progressive like you! But every old person is probably as conservative as your racist uncle who you have negative associations with. And i get it, most of us have older members of families we wish to distance ourselves from, so it's hard for us to imagine older people in positive life... but should we really go as far as disregard their rights to vote?
"But we're not stereotyping old people, it's really how situation is, the majority of voters are old and conservative and their votes are ruining our current situation" - well maybe that means there should be a way to get through to them instead of just wishing for their votes to be magically gone based on their age and nothing more!
#babka talks #babka gets deep #ageism #im so tired #i know i won't get to live to be an actual babka because i won't have any children #and the government stops caring about me after i turn 18 #so i'm just gonna be succumbed by illnesses in complete isolation and no one will be around to help #but endless youth would joke about how im ruining their lives just for existing #riding in public transport #standing in queues struggling to understand new technology #taking up space #voting #not leaving enough room for them to be as loud as they want #oh god15 notes
Sometimes i recally wanna post something like "i am starting to follow more creators of color! cool" or "im about to learn how to draw natural hair" or some stuff like that because sometimes i am excited about this stuff
But then i remember the replies will be "oh so you expect praise or a pat on the back for not being a huge racist??" and im like yeah thats fair so i just don't post stiff like that
no one in my region believes in pandemic i swear. I can cough my lungs out in front of them and they'll just poke me with an elbow to ask if i can move faster in the queue
the more i learn about lovecraft and his worlds the more i dislike everything about it
not in the way its badly written (i don't really know about that), but there is two things that i generally don't really engage too much in, it's horror and complicated lore, and here we have both... also the elder gods, who are supposed to be super otherworldly, still have something ridiculously human to them from time to time, which turns me off...
i am just saying that despite the fact i drew cthulhu and will probably draw him again and i'm not in a "fandom" or anything like that at all. i mean i might try to listen to Cradle of Filth again but that's literally it
@supermario, i guess, but also the character himself is not what i thought he would be. i feel like the sole reason the cult exists in those stories is for Lovecraft to be racist, so that kinda just ruins the logic of charactes and stories for me. and cthulhu is really inseparable from all that pantheon he comes from, so i guess i just like his appearance then.
