    I think it’s ridiculous how people still say shit like “this SOFT generation wouldn’t handle the boondocks” like yall… boondocks is way more accepted now than it was back then

    No cause I really think it’s only been the last few years were people are watching and critiquing the show in the way the creator originally wanted. I think its because of this generation Boondocks is having a regrowth in popularity. I’ve showed this show to my friends who don’t normally watch cartoons, and many of them wish the show was out now.

    That’s not to say the show doesn’t have its issues, but “this generation is too soft” is bs when it’s a childhood show for a lot of and now watching it as adults, it’s everything’s clicking more.

    Catra and Adora somehow get caught up in hijinks with Imp and Adora does sign language to communicate with him.

    Catra: Since when do you know sign language?!

    Adora: I signed up for the elective during Force Captain Orientation. You didn’t go to the special electives panel?

    Catra: NO! AHHHH WHY DID I SKIP FORCE CAPTAIN ORIENTATION?!!?

    Fun, someone said the words “prior authorizations” around me and now I’m pissed off at 730am on my day off. I go off on this rant all the time. ALL THE TIME.

    Every time I have to send a fax to a doctor saying “hey this med needs a PA” I get violently angry.

    Hint: if your PA gets denied call your insurance and ask for the credentials of the person who made that call. Usually they will approve it instead of admitting they hired some 18-year-old with no relevant training or experience to scan for buzz-words and just deny everything

    i also think its funny when people try to tell me me about hordak being a bad person like some kind of gotchya, bc yes i do see him as a terrible person and abusive and my preference for his character arc would have been going to prison and being a vigilante with entrapta by his side. i have issues with his arc. i also like him and entrapta a lot more than the rest of the cast

    Hordak’s literally so terrible but also…kinda awesome? Not sure how to explain it😭

    is it just me or is there something sad and kind of insidious about every call for help post having to have some sort of list of identities to persuade you to donate. “i’m a black nonbinary person” “help a disabled jewish lesbian”, that sort of thing. idk there’s just something depressing about struggling people needing to list out their Oppression Categories to strangers on the internet to prove that they’re worthy of assistance. like maybe it’s just me but i feel like if someone’s leaving an abusive partner or their dog is dying or they’re losing their housing in a week, you shouldn’t have to know that they’re also bisexual or autistic or whatever in order to make it worth helping them

    i think a lot of why this happens is the reality of intersectionality. the more intersecting oppressed identities someone has, the less likely it is that they’ll be able to get help elsewhere, particularly institutionally. so although i totally agree that social media activism has created a culture of “worthiness” where the more marginalized you are the more worthy you are of kindness and support, i think the saddest thing about those posts comes from something else.

    when someone lists their oppressed identities on a donation post, the persuading element isn’t “i’m a black nonbinary person so i’m more worthy of your money than other people,” it’s “i’m a black nonbinary person so everywhere else i turn, racism and transphobia are staring me down, meaning that the generosity of strangers on the internet is my only chance at survival.”

    tl;dr i think it’s more of an institutional/systemic problem rather than a social one.

    thinking about how all the adults were absolutely bullshitting when they said that school days are the best days of your life???? like whatever issues i have going on now, i can buy myself little treats like a book or food whenever i want. i feel like im stagnating in my current job so im looking for a new one. imagine if i was bored of school, no one would let me go to a new one. I don’t have to hang out with anyone I don’t want to. being an adult is fuckjng amazing and i was so right to feel trapped as a kid

    Mid-Night Thoughts:

    I don’t know how I feel when people are very strong on the “Entrapta and Hordak are only friends and they’re each other first friend so it’s unhealthy if they got together” take.

    Like, almost, if not all of these couples are childhood friends to lovers (including Netossa and Spinerella apparently) , people that were each others literal first friends. Isn’t it wrong to hold Entrapta and Hordak to a different standard? Especially when in some cases, their relationship feels and is written more intensely then other established ones?

    Like if you want to view em purely platonic, cool. But its very clear that the people who were writing these two had romantic implications in mind and trying to deny that, whether you like the ship or not, I think is kind of weird.
