Since I really don’t draw enough of this sweet fucker, I’m rELUCTANTLY lifting the ban off of requests and actually encouraging them, send me all your Sam Wilson desires and headcanons
If children of color have to be aware of the realities of racism, white children should too.
I’m tired of hearing that white children are too young to understand the consequence of their words or actions when for nonwhite kids they live with the impact of racism every day
#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
"I believe in fiction and the power of stories because that way we speak in tongues. We are not silenced. All of us, when in deep trauma, find we hesitate, we stammer; there are long pauses in our speech. The thing is stuck. We get our language back through the language of others. We can turn to the poem. We can open the book. Somebody has been there for us and deep-dived the words."
— Jeanette Winterson (via fangirlingthebook)
hello! i’m the owner of the game grumps blog. i’m sorry this isn’t related to the regular content here, but this is very important to my own personal well being and safety and it would mean the world if some of you read and maybe helped me out out if you could.
i’m 22 years old and living at home with my father who has physically and verbally abused me for years. he is incredibly toxic to my mental health and i suffer from depression, anxiety, and other things i don’t feel comfortable to disclose.
i am working a part time job but because of long travel and short hours, i am spending the majority of my earnings on gas and the rest goes to my father who is making me pay rent to live at home. i am putting out applications for better places but i haven’t been hearing back from anyone.
i am in desperate need to get out and live a healthier life outside of my father and his abuse, but i don’t have anywhere else to go and i really cannot start to afford it.
i hate to ask for hand outs but i feel very trapped here. i know that there are other more important things to put your money towards, but anything at all would be a huge help for me at this point.
i wanted to offer some sort of service like commissions but i don’t have the state of mind to offer good consistent art to anyone and for that i am sorry.
but if you want, you can click this link to donate to my paypal ( email@example.com )
these donations will help me towards moving out in the future and having a safe place to stay or to give me something to fall back on if things get worse.
again i’m sorry but i’m feeling helpless and i don’t know how much more i can take. i truly appreciate your time if you read this or decide to give anything. thank you!!!
hey guys! after 2 months, the catc pack is finally ready for release!
but hold on! have your own physical deck of cards at home and want to add this pack to your collection? no problem, you can print off the pack here.
the creaturegroup team spent a lot of time going over your suggestions. we carefully chose ideas that we thought would make for the best game experience! we know how it feels to be stuck playing a ‘boring card’ round and wanted to keep those moments at a minimum.
that being said, we will still be updating the pack! as always, submit your card ideas here. we look forward to it expanding as new videos are released and new references are born!
(p.s. funny moments with the pack? put them in the 'cards against the creatures' tag!)
this couldn’t have been done without you,
so much love and many thanks!
