See, this shit is why we need to be vocal as a heathen community. 
Because the racists, the bigots and fascists don’t want us to be. They’re like spiders- they want a nice quiet place to hide where no one sees them and they can weave their webs. 
And you know what happened next after I took this screengrab? Fucker left. Because they’re cowards. When they know they aren’t welcome, and no one is coming to defend them, they run. 
THAT is why we need vocal opposition, not just ignoring them. Ignoring fascists is like ignoring a suspicious mole- address it quick and you’re probably fine, but let it go and soon you’ve got a fatal tumor. 
Enough is enough. It’s time to cut out the cancer from Heathenry. 

This hammer crushes fascists. 


fucking PREACH

out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory

like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that every kid on the team gets a trophy and is told they did a good job; they can also see that not every kid on the team deserves a trophy, and not everyone did do a good job

the logical conclusion to draw from this is not “i’m great and i deserve praise”— it’s “no matter how mediocre i am, people will still praise me to make me feel better, so i can’t trust any compliments or accolades i receive”

this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.

where did this whole “ugh millennials think their so-so work is super great” thing even come from it is a goddamn mystery

Maybe I’m a little old to be a “millennial,” (1985? Is that still Gen X?  Is Gen Y an actual thing? whatever) but I never got trophies for participation.  I got ribbons two or three times, but they clearly said “participation” on them and they weren’t fooling anyone.  I never saw a kid jump up and dance around because they got a participation ribbon and they literally thought that was the same as winning.

…Which is a shame, because “everybody can’t be a winner” is only true in sports, and not in life.  There’s a rule that only one team can win a tournament.  There’s no rule that only a specific fraction of people can have achievements or successes or be worthwhile.

I don’t think kids should all get “grand ultimate prize winner” trophies, for the reasons the OP describes, but neither do I think they should be indoctrinated with “to be a winner, you have to distinguish yourself from all the losers.”

Nah you’re totally a millenial. Definition seems to be settling at “bon between 1980 and 1999” which is… INCREDIBLY broad as a category, but apparently it’s based around “this person probably spent all or part of their childhood without the internet, but gained internet access young enough that they didn’t struggle to understand the technology”. and also “this person was just the right age to be told that a degree was essential for success as a child, and to find that a degree was rapidly becoming worthless some time between when they started university and when they reached their mid-twenties”.

'Noah' screenwriter attempts to explain why everyone in his movie is white. "The race of individuals doesn't matter."

racebending:

If you’ve seen Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, you may have noticed something a little weird about the semi-Biblical, semi-apocalyptic cast of the movie: they’re all white. Even the extras.

In an interview with The Higher Calling, Noah screenwriter Ari Handel spoke about the reasoning behind the lack of racial diversity in the cast.

“From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise. You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, ‘Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.’

Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, ‘Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?’ That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.”

In summary, white people are stand-ins “for all people,” and no other race could possibly qualify for “everyman” status. Ari Handel’s reasoning is that the only way to dispense with the issue of racism is to remove everyone who isn’t white. Asking what happened to all the other races is akin to nitpicking about whether the arc would float or not. It’s just silly, OK? “The race of individuals doesn’t matter,” which is why they made absolutely sure that all of those individuals were white. Or something.

Unintentionally, Handel managed to illustrate everything that’s wrong with the ongoing attitude towards casting actors of color in major Hollywood movies. White people are the norm, and everyone else is just a distraction. God forbid anyone attempt to be as diverse as the cast of the Star Trek, which debuted in 1966 and included a grand total of two non-white characters.

Benefit for Victims of the Kansas City shootings

theskaldspeaks:

So you’ve heard about the anti-semetic shooting in Kansas City over the weekend, right? Well I and a few others collaborated to create a fund to benefit the victims of this week’s Kansas City hate-fueled shooting. We want to make this a joint effort on the part of the whole Heathen community to not only denounce Glenn Cross’s racist hatred, but to prove our commitment to combating his ilk. We are our deeds right? Let’s show the world who we really are.

https://www.youcaring.com/help-a-neighbor/benefit-for-victims-of-the-kansas-city-shootings/165331

[Please spread this link far and wide!]

As of yet, this is a work in progress- we will be updating the fundraising page with information on where specifically donations will be going. If anyone has anything to contribute, financially or otherwise, please do what you can!

I’d love to see this all over pagan tumblersphere! Boost the signal! 

Even if you can only give a little, please do!

I just gave $5. Every bit helps. Join me in taking a stand against racism and bigotry in heathenry, and in supporting the loved ones affected by the shootings.

Reblargling in case anyone missed it last time.
