Q:What makes you say that hussie hates feferi?
>Tell me about Meenah Peixes.
"Meenah is kind of throwing a bone to the pisces people who got stuck with Feferi. Feferi didn’t really do anything and then she died. Meenah is a cool sassy punk who has more important stuff to do than Feferi ever did."
Act 6, Intermission 3. And the whole silencing thing… IDK, it doesn’t sound like he’s a fan?
And then there are people ~not naming any names~ who say that she is an objectively bad character and if you think otherwise then you’re wrong. Some people’s children.
Radical Neurodivergence Speaking: Things about working with "emotionally disturbed" children that will break your heart.
This is a response to the awful, pooooor aduuuuuuults Cracked article about working with “troubled children”. I worked in a classroom for kindergarten-4th graders with an educational classification of Behavior Disorder/Emotionally Disturbed. I loved them all, each and every one. Most of them had been through more by age 7 than anyone should be ever. This post is dedicated to them. I hope they are all safe & healing now.
this article triggered the crap out of me but was totally worth it.
I knew there was a reason I stopped reading Cracked. What’s funny is that there’s an article by Zoe Quinn not far above it talking about the drama surrounding her.
see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’.
How come I didn’t know this
Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

Q:Before reading homestuck I thought it was a bunch of dead teenagers living in a mansion floating in space and whenever someone died they got horribly mutated before coming back to life, i.e. being grey and getting horns.
i just wanted to put this out there since im sure it’ll get written about differently tomorrow.
Q:but eridan killed people and was genocidal which is worse than anything cronus did
yeah but what cronus did is something a hell of a lot of people have experience with, so the hate is more personal. it’s like how you can hate voldemort abstractly for being a psycho murderer but everyone can really personally connect with how loathesome and nasty professor umbridge is in her much smaller and pettier abuses. a lot of us have never had a serious attempt made on our lives, but most people who have been through highschool remember how much we hate getting touched and mocked by bullies who pretend that everything is happy funtimes right to our faces while they hurt us.
also idk but I’m p sure by the respective standards of Beforus/Alternia Cronus is objectively worse based on the culture and what is expected of a violetblood
Yeah, I mean, I think a lot of the ways Eridan is terrible were heavily influenced by Alternian cultural systems that encourage violetbloods to be racist against all the other castes. There was a whole bit during the Condesce’s exposition telling us how she’d take advantage of these cultural biases to pit highbloods against lowbloods. She’d have every reason to do this, because it helps her stay in power!
I know that Eridan is called out in his introduction as going beyond even that, but if one were to argue from that to say how he’s some kind of special-case where he would have been genocidally racist anyway, and thus would have done the same things, then I think they’d basically have to claim that the culture that one is raised in would have no effect on what their beliefs are, and thus, their actions. Which…doesn’t make any sense to me at all.
With Cronus, you can’t really argue that his behavior was influenced by the culture he was raised in. He even says that he’d basically give Mituna ‘what he deserves’ if they were on Alternia, so…I mean, I think that implies everything else I’m trying to say here.
