You can be any character in the world…as long as you’re white.
- They can never find ethnic actors…until they need maids, slaves, thugs, victims, extras, dropouts, villains. Even in fictional universes we get lightened, pushed to the background, vilified, or exaggerated. That’s IF we even make it to the movie.
- We don’t even get to tell our own cultural stories.
- Yet there will never be a black James Bond.
Your imagination has been limited by whiteness and the norms it perpetuates. Don’t accept appropriation, don’t accept racism, and don’t give power to those who do by paying to see their movies.
I want my next python to be piebald seriously will someone get me this snake please and thank you.
before u dismiss a lighter-skinned character as white keep in mind
- lighter skinned poc exist
- biracial/mixed ppl are a thing
- light skin/white passing =/= white
I have been a cat owner my whole life and I literally never knew that tiger lilies and stargazers were also highly toxic to cats. Even drinking the water from the vase that lilies are in can kill the cat! I brought in a tiger lily from our yard today and just thought to look it up and found out (and of course removed the lily from our house as soon as I saw). How scary!
Other toxic flowers for cats:
- Amaryllis (Amaryllis sp.)
- Autumn Crocus (Colchicum autumnale)
- Azaleas and Rhododendrons (Rhododendron sp.)
- Castor Bean (Ricinus communis)
- Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum sp.)
- Cyclamen (Cyclamen sp.)
- English Ivy (Hedera helix)
- Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe sp.)
- Lilies (Lilium sp.)
- Marijuana (Cannabis sativa)
- Oleander (Nerium oleander)
- Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum sp.)
- Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
- Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta)
- Spanish thyme (Coleus ampoinicus)
- Tulip and Narcissus bulbs (Tulipa and Narcissus sp.)
- Yew (Taxus sp.)
Important info for cat friends!!!
It’s the last day of summer and I’m sitting on a swingset. I just realized I haven’t bothered swinging. I’m wearing sandals while I still can, shorts while I still can, wood chips getting stuck between my feet and the soles of my shoes, and I’m in a church playground staring at a red brick wall but it feels enough like my elementary school to bestow upon me the aching knot of time lost and advancing age that’s been breaking my heart every September since 1999
Sentimentality beats me to a pulp on every holiday
