If you reblog my selfie I will consider you a personal friend and will give you front seats at my wedding and also I won’t have you politically assassinated when I take over the world
So I just learned that 0110 in binary signifies a lowercase letter. Overlord could have just as easily named him “lowercase.”
You know, there are only two characters in RvB whose race is repeatedly brought up as a point of discussion and it’s Tucker and Simmons. Tucker’s commentary on his race is always neutral to positive implication that he’s black. It’s not a negative to him.
Simmons, on the other hand, insists he’s Dutch-Irish and yet Grif clearly mis-took his race for Latino and Simmons, at one point, insultingly calls white-armored Wyoming a ‘cracker’ while shooting him with a machine gun. There’s also the phone-gag with Donut: ”For unconfirmed Dutch-Irish, press one.” Indicating he might not be as white-bread as he’d like us to think. That said, Simmons also can’t speak a lick of Spanish and is, you know, repeatedly racist pretty specifically to Lopez.
That just makes me think Simmons’ dad was a POC.
Think about it.
His dad apparently walked out on him when he was young, either walked out or was never there and he was raised in an abusive home likely by his Dutch-Irish mother whose name he took. So this was likely an out of wed-lock pregnancy and I’m imagining a resentful mother who takes it out on Simmons his whole childhood. Imagine his mother basically driving his dad away because it was unacceptable for them to actually be together.
Imagine Simmons listening to that argument.
I think he was the only mixed-race kid in a primarily white backwards fringe colony somewhere where everyone made fun of him and said terrible shit to him about being specifically Latino. So he was forever yelling “I’m Dutch-Irish!”, forever internalizing and regurgitating all the racist points-of-view to put distance between himself and the heritage everyone looked down on him for. He was a skinny nerdy socially awkward kid with no dad and and abusive mother. Now throw hate-speech into mix and tell me you don’t get a fucked up military run-away with daddy issues and crippling self-esteem issues.
I’m just saying. For unconfirmed Dutch-Irish, press fucking one.
BUT GUYS. THINK ABOUT IT.
neptune sticking up for sun as kids when others tease him about his tail.
neptune refusing to shop at the corner store because they won’t let sun through the front door.
neptune thinking sun’s tail is super awesome and he wants one too.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
tuckington au where they initially meet because wash lives in the apartment down the hall from a girl tucker is sleeping with. one night the girl’s boyfriend comes pounding on her door and they’re both naked but she shoves tucker out onto the balcony without any clothes, and closes the door and the blinds on him so he’s just outside, alone, on a third-floor balcony, completely naked, knocking on the window and yelling “you have a boyfriend??”
but he hears music in the next apartment over so he climbs from one balcony to the other — it’s only a three-foot gap, and he’s desperate — and when he knocks on the door there, one hand over his junk, a cute freckled dude opens it while a group of friends stare in the background.
tucker hurries to explain and the guy thankfully lets him in; a pair of twins take pity on him and tell the freckled guy — wash, or something — to just give him clothes and let him stay and have a beer with them because, c’mon wash, he climbed onto your balcony, naked. the guy needs a drink.
