lmao if you don’t think soul corruption and/or mind control or even just mundane brainwashing arent regularly and consistently used as direct metaphors for ideological conversion in media. like come on 

like very often, the message here is that people who don’t agree with the predominant ideology of the age are afflicted, lack their own agency or sanity, and either need to be ‘cured’ or killed, and oftentimes it’s also invoked as a justification for paranoia that It Could Happen To Anyone 

you know the history of the idea of brainwashing, right? cold war (specifically the back end of the chinese civil war and ramped up during the korean war) anti-communist and racist propaganda concocted by the CIA to address communist sympathies among american pows

help a depressed trans girl out

lesbo-deluxe:

hi hi, i’m lyn and i’m in desperate need of facial hair removal, but i have no income and i’m too depressed+anxious to get a job right now (also for those who haven’t tried to do facial hair removal while working as a girl at a job, it’s VERY very difficult to do properly). in the past i got some laser and electro done but i’m at a point where facial hair is making my dysphoria almost unbearable and i really really need to take care of it.

because i have no income i also have no money for medical appointments and prescriptions, my car insurance bill, and new clothing (barely any of my clothes fit me properly anymore). i don’t want to keep bumming off of my girlfriend’s limited money supply, and currently i basically no money in my bank account, so donations would really help me out in a lot of ways right now. i’m not looking for any specific amount but $1000 would be a good starting point that would help me take care of at least some of these things for now.

my donation link is HERE, if that doesn’t work there’s a button on my sidebar.

also i have an amazon wishlist with stuff i need/want for our apartment that’s mostly cheaper things so if anyone wanted to there’s that too! any and all help + reblogging this post is very much appreciated.

lyn is an absolute treasure and any help you could give would be wonderful

Usagi’s first impressions of her fellow guardians.

"I am going to kiss ALL of them"

happy celebrate bisexuality day everybody *marries a space boy, falls in love with all the girls*

She’s not bi guys. She’s straight. She just notices the positives of these lonely girls. That’s what makes them like her so much and flock to her. She brought them all together when they had nothing. Just because a girl notices the beauty of another girl it doesn’t make her a lesbian or bisexual, it just makes her aware. I’m not homophobic, I’m actually FTM transgender myself. I’m just stating what’s true. She has no sexual attraction to her fellow senshi, she just notices their beauty, inside and out. 

straight girls

Usagi Tsukino, Straight Girl

Here Haruka looks like a man! 

your analysis here is a little… lacking. the depiction of haruka’s presentation is very intriguing but there’s basically no coherent reading of it that positions her exclusively as a man. the romantic encounters (plural) between usagi and haruka (and sailor moon and sailor uranus, and even in usagi’s dreams) are explicitly not heterosexual. good day

rather ironic considering “brainwashing” was cold war era anticommunist propaganda
