The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Still pretty proud of my response to this.
I loved Marvel comics when I was a kid; I was a weird kid who didn’t get down with macho stuff, in part because of the general scene in my house & in part because I was scrawny and couldn’t really front like I was tough. In my tiny limited-to-my-personal-friends-and-surroundings comics scene, the idea that macho norm-enforcer types could be into comics would have come as a huge and deeply disappointing surprise; comics, in my mind, were for people who’d already begun to sense that, in the immortal words of Anti-Flag, “their system doesn’t work for you.”
I hope Marvel systematically “ruins” absolutely every one of their legacy characters forever, one after another, and then D.C. runs a Sgt. Rock miniseries where he renounces violence as a means of conflict resolution. May the grousing of the macho comics dudes ascend to Heaven forever and make an acceptable sacrifice unto Galactus
"macho norm-enforcer types"
Human stupidity and self-loathing is never so eloquently represented as it is in internet discussions about comics and media.
This whole “Captain America is now black” thing has been terrible for two main reasons, and they both have everything to do with the fanbase and nothing to do with the story itself- sticklers who hate change decrying the progression of cannon in a popular comic series, and blubbering SJW activists who prefer quantity over quality when it comes to hamfisting their personal versions of diversity into a fast-food tier version of “representation in the media” to compensate for their own personal issues that have held their lives back.
More people have been arguing about Captain America now being black, than who actually follow the comic series. At this point I’d almost prefer ‘The Death of Captain America” was the actual end to his character arc if it meant avoiding this dumb bickering.
Fanbases ruin everything they touch.

The male competitors are in awe the whole time, and even the commentators learned to stop saying, “I don’t think she can do this.”
This is one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my life.
The joke’s on both of you
You end up dating each other

that’s pretty slick. I always wanted a knife that mounted like this but didn’t know gerber made them. will have to pick one up at some point.
i’m pretty skinny and all of my fixed blades are too large to carry this way with any degree of conceal-ability, so I’ve just been carrying a Kershaw folder for the last few years. I’ll have to look into this one
P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your gender identity on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.
