*peeks at news*

Am I being paranoid, or are they letting things get worse and worse so that we’ll be ready to put up with anything from a president or party or anyone who makes it just a little bit better?

Roommate and I are going out and I’m wearing my Wonder Woman t-shirt and jacket to remind myself there are good things in the world.

It just really bugs me that there are so many talented creators in fandom who have to struggle to earn a living and squeeze out time and energy for art while talentless creeps like Taika Waititi are getting paid to make horrendous skeevy movies. Alan Taylor was enough of an insult. At least Joss has some talent despite his issues and shortcomings and casting couches. But Waititi? Whose idea of Loki is that he has to endure sex with sleazebags to survive? And that domestic abuse is good?

I just feel so discouraged and I know I’m not the only one. Why even bother to try when people with no ability and messed up beliefs get all the opportunities? And when I could be making this exact post about politics instead of movies?

Talentless creeps with penises, of course. You think a female writer who came up with Hydra Cap would have kept her job?

I’m so mad at this bullshit direct quote from an article in the Atlantic about Trump’s eating habits: “Oreos are a paradigm of diabetes- and obesity-inducing foods, and these conditions drive the country’s leading cause of death.” I guess that’s what I get for reading pointless articles. I’m pissed that they’re basically implying obesity is the most deadly condition.

Oh did you not know that when covering a proto fascist who’s taking and destroying lives all over the planet, the most important journalistic point on which to focus is his preferred dessert and its made-up causal relationship with a made-up epidemic??

There’s two possibilities:

1. The people who run the world are incompetent.

2. The people who run the world are very competent. They’re doing this on purpose.

I don’t know which I’m more worried about being real.

I’m more worried about the 2nd.
