HOLY SHIT BALLS DYLAN’S ACTING THOUGH!!!!!

HE DID SO AMAZING LIKE SERIOUSLY

I had read somewhere one time where people were complaining because he always played the “same roles” so he wasn’t considered a “diverse” actor. But this role was so vastly different from his other roles, it was…

I agree with everything about this.

Like yes, yes, yes for your recent ask, he one with Scott and Stiles? I mean, they have such a toxic, unhealthy friendship, and I can kinda understand how it happened, with Stiles needing someone to lean on after his mom died and his dad was in mourning, and developing a codependent attachment to a friend who is selfish, self-absorbed, idiotic, and an amazingly realistic example of a teenager. But is seen as this amazing person, without ever doing anything good.

I’ve mentioned this before but the problem/amazing thing is about perspective

the perspective in teen wolf is very scott friendly

but for a second let’s look at Peter, in many narratives Peter waking up from the coma and killing the people who killed his family would make him the hero - look at the awful film "hard to kill" with steven seagal - it is that exact same plot but Scott codes him as the villain, the villainous Argents who burned the Hales alive for no apparent reason are given heroic status BY Scott, he tells the Hales the Argents must have had a reason because he wants to believe Allison’s family is good so he can be iwth Allison - not that Allison is not associated with the fire in any way and might hate her family for doing it (which she does) Allison’s family hate the Hales so Scott does.

We never see Jackson as the victim of his transformation although he clearly is until Scott does, he is never a malefactor even when it’s arguable that Mr Lahey is his own victim. This happens again and again, the perspective is skewed towards Scott and becuase of it we believe Scott is the hero, but he’s not

we cannot give him a pass for his age because we don’t give other heroes his age that same pass, Aang was 11, Edward Elric was 15, I’m unsure of the age of Percy Jackson off hand but each of them rose up to lead, Scott talks the talk but when push comes to shove he fails. He needs rescued more often than he rescues, he tells himself he has no choice when he consistently sides with the villains (Gerard, Deucalion, Garrett) when the biggest choice is also the easiest - he trusts his pack

So it’s okay to justify Peter murdering people involved in the Hale fire because he was avenging his family (never mind that Kate probably coaxed them and they didn’t do it willingly, remember how Harris said she took advantage of his alcoholism), but when Scott is forced to join forces with the bad guys under duress (meaning they were gonna fucking kill his mom) we ‘can’t give him a pass’?

pssst is it because he’s not white?

You completely missed the point. No one is justifying anything. It’s a point about the perception we’re given in the narrative. Another example of a narritive similar to Peter’s would be “The Punisher” which is a story about a man who’s entire family is murdered and then at his earliest possible convenience/after he heals from his own wounds goes on a merciless revenge spree and brutally and creatively kills all the people who are even remotely related to those people directly responsible for his families’ murder.Throughout the story/film he is murdering people. Murder is murder but because we are told that the character is justified in his actions we route for him. We want him to succeed in carrying out his revenge. It’s quite likely that if we saw season 1 through Peter’s perspective the story and his actions and justifications would be similar to ‘The Punisher’s.’ However, the narritive is told through Scott’s perspective (there is a lot of good meta that would suggest it’s actually Stiles). We’re constantly told in the narrative that Scott is this morally righteous hero/savior when in reality while he does do some good things, while he does have his heroic moments, he is also guilty of bad things. We are often told Scott’s actions/behavior are ‘good/heroic’ when often the people who are painted as villains (season 1 Derek being the best example) simply have goals that are in conflict with or a direct threat to Scott’s end goal. For all that Scott talks of being a good person he will lie, manipulate, and betray without remorse to get to his end goal. The point being made is that despite the fact that we’re told he is a hero who acts heroically and honorably, despite the fact that Scott sees the world in Black&White/Good&Evil dualities and likes to think that he’s always on the morally good side, in the end he actually behaves just as morally grey as any of the other characters on the show.

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

What’s the point of even going to school when all they teach us is lies?


((also, if there’s a video similar to this but about the Native American history of Canada, please send me the link))

History is written by the victors, it takes centuries for bias to mostly fade

I notice how they don’t mention how the US also took the blankets from plague and small pox hospitals and traded them with the Native Americans for food hoping to exterminate them that way.

Get a European history book about America, they tend to be a lot more honest, The Enduring Vision by Paul S Boyer is a good place to start, it covers a lot so it’s in many ways a primer, but it’s the one the universities use. They reissue it with updates every year or so, but if you’re just educating yourself an old copy is just as good

I am still thinking about this

Actually, the fruit of a tree is technically a reproductive organ, since it holds the tree’s seeds and all.
So, it wouldnt be cannabalism, you’d kinda be feeding them their own semen.

I’VE BEEN DRINKING APPLE CUM??



okay now i’ll reblog it

sorry I just wanted to point out that since fruit hold the seeds/ovules they’re technically ovaries and so you’re not drinking apple cum you’re drinking ovary blood
apple semen would be pollen from apple trees and it would just be powdery and awful

You’re really passionate about apples

Actually since fruit is fertilized eggs, you’re drinking liquefied apple fetus.

liquefied apple fetus.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WORSE, APPLE PERIOD BLOOD, APPLE SEMEN OR LIQUEFIED APPLE FETUSES.

Can we just talk about this post for a moment…

HOW DOES THIS KEEP GETTING WORSE

OMG! I CAN’T BREATH! I THink this broke my brain!
