Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.
oh you’re straight? so you’re kind of, like, half-bi?
Laverne Cox and Lupita N’yongo literally have inspired so many trans women and black women and have done so much to encourage them and meanwhile they are less influential than an ugly oatmeal reptilian alien and a manchild who wrote a scene where two pretentious terminally ill teenagers make out at the Anne Frank Memorial
everyones obsessed w the bee movie but how come none of you talk about my FAVOURITE monstrosity
this movie had a budget of 40 million dollars
took ten years to make
and flopped harder than anything you’ve ever seen
Delgo is notable for producing, at the time, the worst opening ever for a film playing in over 2,000 theaters, earning $511,920 at 2,160 sites. According to Yahoo! Movies, this averages to approximately 2 viewers per screening.
just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing
leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women
Pretty much this. She beat so many people that actually made it onto the list, but the people at Time really didn’t give half a shit. The editors had theirtop 100 written out over a month ago, they convinced celebrities to write little biopics for them, and then they left the polls open to humor us. Apparently the people at Time never expected a transgender person, let alone a trans woman of colour, to be respected and loved more than a british man. Let’s take a look at the online polls and crunch some numbers shall we?
Benedict Cumberbatch is the first person in the ‘artists’ section of Time’s 100. On the online poll, 90,271 people answered the question of whether or not he should have made it. 65.8% said yes, which, at a favorable estimate, means that sixty thousand people voted for him to be on the list. He made it. Good for him.
Laverne Cox didn’t make it onto the list. Why? On the online poll, 88,481 people answered whether or not Laverne should have been on the list. That’s nearly as many answers as there were for Benedict. However, 91.5% of those votes said she should be on the list. Even at the least favourable estimate, rounding that percentage down to 90%, she still had seventy nine thousand people vote that she deserved to be on the list. That’s 125% of the support that Cumberbatch had, but where is she on the list? Nowhere to be seen. Why? Because Time has chosen to participate in the willful erasure of transgender people.
To the editors of Time Magazine, fuck you. We know who deserved their spot on the list.
this kid in my class posted an “I’m coming out as straight” status can I beat him up
and then they didnt put her on the final list
your pasty ass was included on the list instead of someone who’s actually making a difference and all u got to say is “disappointing”

i’ve stopped trash talking comic sans after learning the font is actually one of the only dyslexia-friendly fonts that come standard with most computers and i advocate for others doing the same
It most certainly isn’t “one of the only dyslexia-friendly fonts” that are readily available with most computers.
To designate a font as dyslexia friendly it must meet several criteria that comic sans does indeed fit, such as Arial, Calibri, Geneva, Trebuchet MS.
Sans Serif, good spacing, non mirroring b,q, and p,d are some requirements. While certainly there are some people who are dyslexic that prefer comic sans, there are many that don’t.
In experimental trials, such as this one
it was found that Verdana and Helvetica were most readable as compared to Opendyslexic, the font specifically designed to impact readability for dyslexic people
sooooooooo there are plenty of other fonts that offer readability besides comic sans
