"Franz Kafka Airport" is one of my favorite Onion bits
whenever i see people talking about how progressive and not sexist kill la kill is, all i can think of is kate beaton’s “sexism is over” comics
if you want to feel bad about a genre of posts i neglect, it’s alt lit posts. i see like a billion HEY SPREAD MY NEW COLLECTION and then i read some samples and it’s like good luck but nah…nah
Anonymous asked: Why do you hardly reblog any social justice stuff?
eh i probably reblog social justice stuff equal to the amount i reblog other stuff (dumb anime jokes etc) relative to how often it appears on my dash. also social justice posts tend to be redundant (different posts talking about the same thing) and so I might reblog something that I think is particularly insightful and not necessarily all the other posts that pop up. like for example if i see a real good post about the potential minimum wage increase I’ll probably reblog that but so far it’s been like either preach-to-the-choir obvious stuff or like buzzfeed posts like Look At These Things FDR Said About Minimum Wage.
