me when buying something over $10: do i need this? do i need any material objects? will this matter when i face the great abyss?

Just received my size 50 knitting needles in the mail, and I’m pretty sure these are weapons, not craft making tools

coming out to your parents
If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.
The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.
It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents. Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it. It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.
Seriously guys… Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr are Professor X and Magneto. Legacy virus is HIV. X-men is a flawless comic.
No, it’s actually about gay rights. The Director, Producer, and Writer were all gay, they intended to tell this story while using homosexuality as a backdrop.
i think what theyre saying is that this movie franchise is possibly an alegory to gay rights. But the entire franchise itself is meant to match Civil rights movements. Thats what the series has been based on for the last several decades

heres a fun fact that shows a lot about me: im pretty allergic to bananas but didn’t know it at all growing up until one day when i was like 17 i was like “man, i love bananas. theyre always so tangy and make ur mouth all tingly” and my friend was like “thats. definitely not what a banana is supposed to be like” one doctors trip later, turns out im allergic to bananas.
instead of watching the 50 Shades trailer, why not just make awkward eye contact with a total stranger at the grocery store for a solid 2 minutes and 34 seconds? you get the same skin-crawling, uncomfortable feeling but without the shitty writing, terrible acting and massive dose of rape culture
can you imagine remus waking up to see dumbledore knocking at his door informing him that all his friends are either dead or have betrayed him. can you imagine how much he cried, how he probably just stayed in his house for a good solid week with members of the order coming to check on him every so often
i’m not okay
