if you reblog this in the next 34 minutes I’ll draw you something because wow
i don’t understand how people stop watching shows because something happens that they don’t like or they don’t like how it’s going
if i start a show i’m in it until the end
in sickness and in health
till death or discontinuation do us part
man, i 1000% understand where you’re coming from
oh yeah fuck glee
I’M LAUGHING SO FUCKING HARD
dont get me wrong i think its very important to get out into the community and do something but you dont always have to be part of the movement to make a difference. for most ppl thats just unpractical. the reason i insist on people not reserving their activism to the safety of the internet and at home is because 1 ) social change relies on personal discomfort but 2 ) it is way too easy to be disconnected from how power actually works if you are only looking how it affects you and not how it is negotiated, flowing in real world communities.
there are too many activists who are totally disconnected from reality because all they do is talk. this is common in academia, its common on tumblr. mitigating circumstances aside, i’m not saying ya’ll gotta be in the street getting pepper sprayed by the cops and beaten or some shit. but connecting the people that exist right in your own backyard is way harder than finding a community of oppressed ppl to talk to on tumblr, whereas both are important salient social change that directly affects you is more likely to arise from one than the other. just find someone and talk to them. and you know what, there might not be anyone and that’s ok too.
i just think too many ppl wash their hands of the actual gritty work of IRL anti-oppression, whether its ‘grassroots organizing’ or being a fucking neighbor and active in the welfare of your own community.
