I only hope my baby brother grows up to be as punk rock as me （＾ν＾）
Panda researchers in China wear panda costumes to give mother-like feeling to a lonely baby panda who lost her mother [x]
without context it looks like some guy disguised himself as a panda so he could sneak into their panda community and now he’s making a quick getaway with the baby panda
I feel like race and disability intersects here, because even though they’re totally different, there’s that element of deleting pieces of someone’s identity until they’re somehow less of a person. I mean, the image of a able-bodied, neurotypical white male is considered precious, and anything “less” is not human. I hope I interpreted that right, thank you so much for sharing your experience.

I COULD WRITE PAGES AND PAGES ABOUT SUBVERSIVE CELEBRITIES
like, marlon brando wore moccasins and jeans and t-shirts
he was still white and conventionally attractive, but his presence was a slap in the face to 1950s american society
same with brangelina
both white and hot
but they weren’t married for a long time, and have a blended family
These things, these aspects, become speakable among the minivan majority
you could argue that Will Smith is similar
girls wanted to touch him, and that made him powerful
unlike the Brando, he was conventional, married a woman and had kids
but his race made him revolutionary
Chris Evans shouldn’t even be this big and beloved and iconic
but girls and guys want to touch him, and that makes him powerful
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
who wants me to rhapsodize about marlon brando? Cuz I’m in the mood
He refused to play the hollywood game, but he was so hot and talented that he made it through
the mere fact that women wanted to touch him gave him power, power over the provincial hollywood studios and moral guardians
no wonder he and Marilyn Monroe had a thing, they were identical
