    Y’all.... this is not good.. #freebritney

    For anyone wondering what’s happening: For 12 years, Britney Spears has been under a conservatorship wherein her father and a lawyer have been granted full legal authority over her life and assets. The status is arranged for individuals deemed unable to feed and clothe themselves, and was implemented in Ms. Spears’s case after a mental health crisis in 2008.

    The situation has returned to the spotlight because the conservatorship was recently extended, and because Kanye West’s presidential campaign announcement has brought the situation into contrast with his mental health history, as West was institutionalized over psychological issues in 2016.

    Many argue that the conservatorship is abusive and unnecessary, as Spears has demonstrated full mental faculty in the decade since her guardians were appointed, and see a double standard between her continued conservatee status, 12 years after her mental health episodes, and West’s presidential bid after just 4.

    An EXCELLENT animation joke here! Please note that all of this has been animated on 1’s(which is to say that each drawing is only being held for 1 frame), where most anime is animated on 3’s(each drawing held for 3 frames). This makes the animation look especially fluid, but is extremely time consuming to do - even classic Disney cartoons tended to animate on 2’s as much as possible! Also worth noting is the beautiful flow of S to C curves in the long hair - this is another thin that is often heavily simplified in anime. What’s more, the entire shot is complicating the animation - the low angle with multiple head turns, the way the hand interacts with the hair, and the extreme foreshortening of the hand as it moves towards the camera. Lovely animation combined with a wonderful awareness of the skills and pitfalls of the industry! (This clip is sourced from an anime called Joshiraku, and the rest of it appears to be animated in a more traditional anime style)

    I wish that yankees could go like one day without forgetting that the South is full of people who are actively fighting against and suffering under all this stuff they just find distasteful

    "They're red states so we should just write them off"

    I fucking live here

    "The poor and oppressed deserve to die to pay for the crimes of their oppressors."

    --ancient yankee proverb

    i wish more people could remember the amount of black people in the south lmao like.......

    Mmhmm

    The primary recipient of all this brutal unpleasantness as well as the primary force of positive social change in this region was, is, and remains the South's very large Black population.

    But y'all would rather just forget about all that if it means you get to have a convenient scapegoat for nationwide systemic issues & get to feel superior to The Poors.

    <>the remote, secluded and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range five hundred years ago. during the early spring season, the terraces, once planted, are irrigated with spring water from the forest above, reflecting sunlight to create these stain glass like landscapes

    raccoons make no sense because they will leave your birdseed and garbage and garden and compost pile alone but they WILL open a barrel and pull out an empty 5 gallon gas canister and unscrew the lid and leave it in your yard and also untie the dog tether from your porch beam for no reason

    one time I watched a raccoon pull up plastic tent stakes at a campground and just walk away, content with causing mischief

    another time at camp I woke up to find a raccoon had grabbed the yarn that connected the string telephones my neighbor and I had strung up between our cabin windows and was just yanking on it… I grabbed one end and ended up in a tug-of-war over the string phone while this beefy raccoon pulled and pulled, hand over hand, making direct eye contact with me

    and sometimes they’d sneak into cabins and just…. touch people while they slept

    why!!! who said you could act like this!!!
