Why single out Israel? Because Israel is the only serial human rights abuser that enjoys consistent and enthusiastic support by all the liberal democracies of the North.
This support gives the Israeli state an impunity that Iran, Sudan, Zimbabwe or Burma, to name but four, do not enjoy because their human rights abuses are all—rightly and however unprincipled—attacked by the major powers.
Israel alone is allowed to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity; it alone is allowed to repeatedly ignore United Nations resolutions without any opposition from northern governments and major institutions.
‘Why Israel only’ is tired and hypocritical
This is so important. No one is saying Israel is the only state to ever commit human rights abuses, but it is unique in enjoying support for those human rights abuses [from most of powerful states] by painting itself, the oppressor, repeatedly as the victim.
Look at what’s relevant again, and still old.
4 DAYS UNTIL ATTACK ON TITAN SEASON 2
then this is natural selection at work and you probably deserved it
I think we should all celebrate by taking a moment to appreciate Robert Pattinson’s attitude and I’m laughing so much right now.
JUST ALL THAT HE IS.
Robert Pattinson’s ‘Twilight’ commentary.
I’m going to miss this
Who would have thought he hated Twilight so much?
He hates Twilight more than Stephen King.
these magical fluff things literally just morph out of nowhere i swear
Like,how could Crowley knock twice if he’s not alive?????
I expected him to knock twice just to be a little shit
look what we have here
i have legitimately never laughed harder and for as long in my entire life
I sat here until my eyes glazed over and then was thinking ‘this is so dumb its just three wells’ and then
Okay so I’m in church and our Sunday school teacher or whatever asked us to write something that currently reflects how we feel or some shot like that and this boy read this hella romantic poem and the teacher was like is that how you feel about god and all and he was like no that’s how I feel about you and winked and I think i might have passed out from dying
most accurate definition ever
This is true
Fan fiction is making teenagers better writers and better satirists, and allowing them to explore sexuality in a way decided by them rather than dictated by the entertainment industry. A purity ring doesn’t carry much meaning when Ron Weasley is pulling it off with his teeth.

“A purity ring doesn’t carry much meaning when Ron Weasley is pulling it off with his teeth.”
I’m just gonna be over here, slow-clapping.
“But if anything, most fan fiction is a rejection of Rihanna and EL James’s leather-bound version of sexuality. When most teenagers are faced with the miserable advice of sex education (put a condom on a carrot, use a mirror to look at your bits), or the miserable version of sexuality in porn, fan fiction offers a more honest way to engage with relationships and sex.”
Here here, Guardian.
you know what constantly blew my mind as a child
in movies when a character is looking straight into their reflection in a mirror
how does the camera not show up in the mirror
actually never mind about the whole “as a child” business i still haven’t figured this shit out
smoo told me to draw zutara week stuff so instead i drew some modern au gaang. sorry for my shitty handwriting.
