Captain Kirk being attractive in Star Trek 2009
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
it has been economically and psychologically studied that unless you make 75000 dollars a year, youre not happy. thats the amount of money every year that you need to be really happy.
so no, saying “following your dreams” doesnt cut it. my dad grew up in poverty and had to work his entire damn life doing shit he didnt want to do, and now hes like 53 and hes FINALLY happy because hes making money. he had to give up his dreams in order to get out of poverty. so YEAH
money doesnt buy you happiness, but unless you make 75000 a year then youre not totally safe
who needs a pricey ceremony when you’re already a married couple.

happy international women’s day
Why isn’t there a white/Caucasian female? We’re supposed to be celebrating the endless and powerful spectrum of women all over the world.
Because not only do women of colour face oppression by men on a daily basis, they also face oppression by white people on a daily basis White women are very well represented in comparison to women of colour - they’ve had numerous TV shows that are white feminist-centric - eg Girls, Sex and the City and also movies like Mean Girls. A celebration of solely women of colour is necessary in order to empower us and bring us at least to the same status of white women.
Women of colour are not represented very well in white media, and are told to get their own shows but when they do get their own shows they’re told “wow, an all coloured show? isn’t that kinda racist???” In fact, white people make about only 30% of the world, meaning white women are 15% of the world’s population.
Basically what I’m trying to get at is if the white population represented women of colour better then we wouldn’t need a separate celebration of our achievements. But they don’t, so we do. It’s like that post about Mario Kart - you don’t get the blue shell if you’re already in first place. I’m sorry if this didn’t make sense, it’s 1:30 in the morning.
bless you for replying to this is a manner much better than i could have done.
I’m the Kirk! <3

Star Trek XI & XII - Character Tropes
Every time I see Elizabeth i’s signature I get absurdly happy cause I just imagine her signing her name and doing a little twirly and then pausing and then adding a few more twirlies
“your majesty perhaps thats enough twirls” suggests William Cecil
“perhaps Im the motherfuckin queen” suggests elizabeth and adds 6 more
I’m just sitting here, waiting to go to the movies with a friend, and killing time before I have to leave and turn on MeTV and Bonanza is on and guess who I see shooting a rifle? DeForest Kelley. Look how handsome he is. :o)
Link to it?
equilibrium - tw for blood, large amounts of people executed by gun (though no close ups), several dogs are killed (you don’t see, only hear), a brief moment of gore where someone gets their face sliced off (but you can tell when its coming) and…that’s all I can think of.
edit - I completely forgot, there’s a scene where someone has their leg and arm broken, they’re wearing clothes but you hear very loud crunches and its horrible - I consider myself relatively okay with violence but it always makes me flinch and feel ill. generally if you’re not good with violence I would stay away from this film
I would really recommend equilibrium to trekkies, especially people interested in vulcan culture, as its set in a dystopian future where humans repress all of their emotions through taking hourly pills, and the exploration of how the protagonist slowly begins to experience emotion is really really interesting and moving
have any of you guys seen equilibrium, with christian bale and sean bean? because I’m watching it now and oh my life I am s o emotional about this film
