Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.

how do woman not orgasm when inserting tampons.

like isn’t just like having sex idgi?

This sounds like a Mitt Romney diary entry.

how do men not orgasm when putting on a condom

like isn’t just like having sex idgi?

Isn’t this a terrible counter-example, though?

Because when a person with a penis puts on a condom, the penis is usually erect and the person already in a state of arousal.

What people need to understand is that inserting something into the vagina is not automatically arousing. Like, not at all, usually. That’s why it doesn’t do shit for most people with vaginas when you put a finger or a penis in there and wriggle it around like you know what’s what, and that’s also why orgasms from penis-in-vagina sex are only slightly more commonly sighted than Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.

you know actually it was super important to me that these guys and the vast majority of front-of-train people, and all the people in the highest positions of power were all white. snowpiercer is the least subtle allegory to ever allegory— bunch of white guys pulling the strings, fucking shit up, proselytizing at each other and choosing another white dude to succeed them?

and the one white dude who changes the paradigm choosing to ally himself with and protect poc children at great personal cost (not just that scene at the end where he sacrificed himself to protect yona and timmy, but also in the axegang scene when he physically stepped in front of yona). the fact that he was tempted was important, the fact that in the end he chose to sacrifice comfort and a good life and align himself with the marginalized and oppressed was so important.

another way to look at it: namgoong was always resisting, he was always ready to tear down the system. curtis saw what the system had to offer and he was seconds away from taking it— but he was the only one offered it and probably the only one who WOULD be offered it. compare and contrast to how people who weren’t considered white in the US chose to be complicit (e.g. the irish) and managed to gain all the advantages of a white cultural identity but only because they looked a certain way.

the difference is that seconds away from being indoctrinated, curtis glimpsed the cost of buying into that system (what it costs to people he cares deeply about) and he decided FUCK ALL THAT SHIT LET’S BLOW THIS FUCKER and he needed namgoong’s initiative and yona’s help to do it (alternatively, namgoong needed curtis’s help to do it because curtis was the only one with the opportunity to get that close to wilford presumably cause wilford and gilliam were racist af)

The thing that gets me, the hardest, is the fact he basically DID accept it at the end, until Yona shows him the truth about the Engine…. the Engine cannot be reformed, it cannot be “fixed”, even if you tried to restructure the society, the very Engine itself has to run on abusive, horrid exploitation and violence.   

Maaaasn. He wasn’t subtle at all. At all. And you know I didn’t miss the significance of the races if the survivors. I saw this in Lakeview, Chicago-one of the whitest places ever. The theatre was packed but there me and a black couple behind me were the only POC and it was tense as hell in that theatre. I don’t think they appreciated that glaring statement of privilege. I’ll also say Ed Harris’ speech about making sure they started uprisings amongst the lowest classes to keep population down kicked me in the stomach in light of what’s happening in Gaza.
