It’s unimaginable and disgusting that this happens to children that don’t even understand what’s happening to them.
Jesus fucking Christ.

This was perfect
TIGERS ARE ON RED ALERT
The Sumatran Tiger is said to be extinct by 2015, with fewer than 300-400 left in the wild due to large-scale habitat loss, poaching, hunting and human-tiger conflict. Other subspecies are said to follow.

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
There actually is an episode that examines Meg’s position as the abused family member and she actually vocally admits to another character that she HAS to be the target of abuse in her family, otherwise their anger and vitriol is unfocused and would ultimately cause the family to collapse. Which is a DEEPLY DISTURBING fact which ultimately is only used to canonize Meg’s abuse within the world of the show.
When in reality the only reason Meg became the subject of abuse by her family was because there was apparently tons of fan outrage against her. Fans hated her because she was boring and uninteresting, at least in comparison to the rest of her family. So instead of actually working in depth to her character or making her more appealing for the narrative, the writers just decided to turn her into a punching bag for her family. It seems confusing since none of the other characters (with the exception of McFarlane’s fursona Brian maybe) have gotten any real depth or appeal to their character and were all as equally boring as Meg, but I guess since she was never the focus in the wacky plotlines she just kind of slid into that crevasse.
But I guess more upsetting to this whole thing (at least to me) is that this is what the writers of Family Guy consider humor. This is what they put out every week to millions of viewers. Peter shouting out to his neglected and abused daughter “You don’t matter!”, that’s “humor”. Stewie shouting to Moe over the phone “Your sister’s being raped!”, that’s “humor”. It’s just disgusting and depressing.
I feel like if I did another photo edit this would be the next one I do xD
Or this one.
a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?
okay, well what about the national democratic party?
what about interning at the united nations?
wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

It was placed by the anti-LGBT Minnesota Child Protection League in response to a proposed policy that would allow trans high school athletes to play on teams that correspond with their gender identity.
It reads: “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU ok with that?” In a full-page ad.

Fuck this newspaper
for a while i didnt understand what this ad was about but then it slowly dawned on me
For example, it’s quite telling that this group of coders and designers decided it wouldn’t be fucking embarrassing to go forward with this product with so so so little diversity on their team. That wasn’t a deal-breaker for them. Demographic diversity is closely tied to a diversity in perspectives and ideas. Like, if this group was even a little more diverse they would likely have known better than to make a social site live without a block button. As @interdome said, “if a social network can’t figure out that it will need a block button on its own, I don’t have much hope for it’s survival.”
As it goes, Ello creator Paul Budnitz said, “we built Ello for people like ourselves”.
This is yet another example of social media built by designers, coders, and entrepreneurs, but no central role for those expert in thinking about and researching the social world. The people who have decided they should mediate our social interactions and write a political manifesto have no special expertise in the social or political. I’m pretty tired of social technologies being treated as far more technology than social, where the coders and designers run the thing and those who study social relations, study sex and gender and race and sexuality and identity and culture and power and domination and vulnerability and resistance and everything else hope to get our opinions heard later on.
A glimpse at the contents of Masaaki Yuasa’s Sketchbook for Animation Projects (Amazon JP). I took pictures of some of the art work from Mind Game, Kemonozume, Cat Soup, and Crayon Shin-chan. It’s a really massive book (400 pages), and each series is printed on a different colored page to make it easier to flip to the right section!
