The Mountain Goats - Woke Up New

I like listening to “Woke Up New” sometimes because it makes me feel sad but also less alone.

Hey, white Steven Universe fans. These are all the POC in the cast of Steven Universe. You notice how 3 of the 4 leads are WOC? Or how this is more than 2/3 of the extended cast of the show? Representation matters. Trying to litigate the racial background of these characters because you want to identify with them as white is fucking shitty. Stop it. White people are massively over-represented in TV shows and movies. We don’t need to steal back characters whose creators have deliberated coded as non-white.

Then why do you think it’s okay to make WHITE characters black? It should go both ways!

This guy IS NOT BLACK!!! He has been white for over 50 years.

Like, you’re typing words and you think they make sense and yet they do not. Not at all. But, hey, at least we all know you’re a fucking racist because that certainly came through.

ugh, people like you should shut the fuck up. They’re voice actors, they don’t CAARE if the person is black or white if they voice it, They just voice it and hell, they even like the characters. You just need to shut the fuck up.

Yes, clearly it is a coincidence that the makers of this show have cast POC to play 2/3 of the characters.

This isn’t about saying any of these characters ARE POC (though, 7 of them EXPLICITLY are). Its that this is a show which is produced with POC talent. And that’s in acting, writing, directing, and producing. So when people try to litigate all the reasons characters CAN’T be POC, all the reasons POC are “wrong” to identify with characters, that’s fucked up bullshit that needs to stop.

This is why I never mess with fandoms. I’ll watch and enjoy a show, but fandoms are fucking toxic. They invariably become a breeding ground for the kinds of bitter people who loudly resent “SJWs” because damn near every community large enough will inevitably reach a critical mass of those assholes where they start whining and moaning about having people thinking things they don’t like and having the audacity to call people thinking things they don’t like “thought policing”.

At its most polluted, you get #GameyGate but the thing about Social Injustice Clowns is that as representatives of the status quo they are everywhere. Even as fans of shows or books or whatever that EXPLICITLY embrace the values of those despised “social justice warriors”. Honestly, I’m half surprised there isn’t an SJW-fandom that is, itself, full of angry dweebs ranting about how “SJWs” are ruining the SJW-fandom.

Dear Tumblr, I need your help. If anything I’ve ever written or posted or said or did has ever impacted your life in a positive way, please read on. A small donation could mean keeping my family safe from violence and homelessness. Every little bit helps.
The short version: my mom and my sister and my nephew were left homeless after my sister was assaulted in the home where they were staying. My grandmother died unexpectedly this week so they cannot stay with her (where they normally go in times of trouble). I am paying to keep them in a motel until the 29th of October but after that I am out of money. They need to keep a roof over their heads while they search for resources, meet with their social worker, and do everything else they can think of to secure longer-term housing for them and my baby nephew.You can donate now at www.youcaring.com/helpmargitte (because fuck gofundme).The long version:
Back in May, my 25-year-old sister Molly gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Jericho. He is her first child, and my mother’s first grandbaby. 
Because he was born slightly premature and my sister, a single mom, needed extra help, my mother moved in with them to support her. 
Everything was going wonderfully at first. Jericho gained weight at a healthy pace, rarely cried, and was a generally happy and well-adjusted baby. My mom and my sister became a great co-parenting team, supporting each other, making sure they didn’t miss a single appointment, and providing all of the love, care, and attention Jericho needed.
But then my sister was physically assaulted by one of the male adults living in their home. He broke her nose, ruptured her eardrum, and gave her a concussion. 
Needless to say, my sister and my mother moved out. At first they went to my grandmother’s (Jericho’s great-grandma), but her senior living apartment managers wouldn’t let them stay. (In an unrelated series of events, my grandmother suddenly and unexpectedly passed away last week, and we are all still figuring out how to cope without her.)
Currently, my mom and sister and baby Jericho are staying at a motel that I am paying for out of pocket—but I only have enough money to keep them there through next Wednesday. 
That’s where you come in. 
My mom and my sister are spending their days searching for resources and getting on waiting lists for low-income housing. They have a social worker and others helping them out, but they need more time. 
I’m trying to raise enough money to keep them there for a full month or longer ($2000+) while they continue their search for other options. They also need gas money, food (they have a full kitchen in their motel room), and other essentials for them and the baby (diapers, money for laundry, etc.). 
Raising this money could mean the difference between them finding a place to live for good and being completely homeless. 
Thank you for considering donating to my family and helping me help them. And if you can’t donate, I’d love for you to share this with others. My family could really use a miracle right about now.

I’ve never asked folks for much and I’ve tried to boost and contribute when other people have needed help, but this time it’s my fam in trouble.
Any contributions or reblogs would be greatly appreciated! If you have questions you’re welcome to ask me, but keep in mind that due to the nature of some of what has transpired there are things I’d rather not (or can’t) provide details for.
