Dad on cultural appropriation. (conversation was in Spanish)

  • Me: Hey Dad, I have a question
  • Dad: Alright, lets see if it's within my reach
  • Me: What do you think of cultural appropriation?
  • Dad: what?
  • Me: Cultural appropriation.
  • Dad: I think you mean acculturation.
  • Me: yeah, I do. But I was using the term the Social Justice Morons use.
  • Dad: It's a necessary part of being human, you can't just keep the one culture all of your life!
  • Me: So how offended would you be if a bunch of white people started speaking Spanish?
  • Dad: Offended? I would be glad, at least they speak my language!
  • Me: What if a white guy made tacos?
  • Dad: what kind of taco? why would I be offended? Did I invent it and patent it?
  • Me: Nope, just an ordinary taco made by a white guy.
  • Dad: Why would I be offended? It would like a German guy getting offended because I grilled a hamburger
  • Me: Well, because it's a Mexican food, it was discovered and is integral to Mexican culture. What if a white person doesn't respect the history of the taco.
  • Dad: When the woman who first created a taco did that, did the Angels descend from heaven with a deed and a copyright form signed by God informing us that only Mexicans can make it?
  • Me: Nope. It's just a taco.
  • Dad: Precisely, it's a taco, eat it. I would actually be happy for that white guy, tacos are pretty good.
  • Me: What if Tyler wanted to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos? On his own?
  • Dad: Tell him to pace himself the skulls are made of pure sugar.
  • Me: What if he wanted to celebrate El Dia de la Independencia?
  • Dad: Culture is not something handed to you by God to protect and nurse, it's just something that happens to you, and when you think you have it figured out, it changes. That's what cultures do. They change. You know what these people are trying to do, right?
  • Me: Yeah,
  • Dad: They want us all to hate each other and not speak to each other. They want us Mexicans in Mexico, Afro-Americans in Africa, Asians in Asia and none of us talking or being nice to each other. With no resources, no trade, no rights, and only the one language that only we're allowed to speak so that we can't communicate with anyone outside. And that's after they'd kill off all the white people. They're like the KKK, if the KKK didn't have balls.
  • Me: I arrived at the same conclusion.
  • Dad: Make yourself a coffee.
  • Dad:
  • Dad: Just be sure it's Mexican *laughs*

So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)

This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.

This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.

if you’re cis and you follow me i’m gonna need you to reblog this

don’t care if you’re cis or trans, this is important.

I went to a Juneteeth celebration at work and someone read this, and also “Alone,” “Caged Bird,” and “Still I Rise,” and I was sobbing and trying to act casual like I just had allergies or something.

Oh my god. It was a test.

Holy f… I thought John was just smirking to himself about the corrupt nature of government. But this is just proof; Mycroft really is smarter than Sherlock. The warehouse wasn’t just a babysitting interview and salary negotiation, even if Sherlock thought it was. it was a damned test, and John passed. He’s too morally driven to sell Sherlock out, and therefore not inclined to stab Mycroft in the back. Four for you, Mycroft. You go, Mycroft.

(Also, CONTINUITY, Mr. Gatiss. You’re doing it right.)

Wait… did folks think that Mycroft was actually going to pay John to spy on Sherlock?

He’s CIA-British-Government-Big-Honcho. He can control London’s CCTV network and its phone boxes. He’d need a former Army grunt (untrained in intelligence) hanging around the flat and slipping him spy messages? Unlikely. 

Of course it was a test. If John hadn’t passed it, ASiP would have ended with our good doctor in the boot of a black sedan somewhere out on the moors. Or at the bottom of the Thames.

Who else was probably tested by Mycroft and passed?

Lestrade

MYCROFT: Interesting, that soldier fellow. He could be the making of my brother. Or make him worse than ever. 

LESTRADE: Sherlock Holmes is a great man, and I think one day—if we’re very very lucky—he might even be a good one. 

Why, exactly, is Greg Lestrade so invested in Sherlock’s sobriety, from the very beginning? And why do he and Mycroft go about using the same methods to monitor it, whenever John Watson’s not in the picture?

LESTRADE: It’s a drugs bust. […] They’re not strictly speaking on the drugs squad, but they’re very keen.

MYCROFT: Some members of your little fan-club. Do be polite. They’re entirely trustworthy, and even willing to search through the toxic waste dump that you are pleased to call a flat.

As Detective Inspector, wouldn’t Lestrade have an actual drug squad at his disposal? Why the below-the-table machinations, if not to protect Sherlock and avoid any actual drug charges?

Lestrade operates as Sherlock’s patron saint and advocate in the Yard. The only time things seem to get cocked up is when a higher-ranking officer like the Chief Superintendent in Reichenbach gets involved. A less-involved officer—someone untested by Mycroft.

We’ve got a direct allusion to the depth of Mycroft and Lestrade’s involvement in Baskerville:

SHERLOCK: I’m waiting for an explanation, Inspector. Why are you here?

LESTRADE: I’ve told you: I’m on holiday.

SHERLOCK: You’re brown as a nut. You’re clearly just back from your ‘holidays’.

LESTRADE (trying to look nonchalant): Yeah, well I fancied another one.

SHERLOCK: Oh, this is Mycroft, isn’t it?

LESTRADE: No, look … 

This is a man willing to leave Tahiti (or wherever) at a moment’s notice because Sherlock needs looking-after. Mycroft can trust him, and probably has done for a longer time than we think. 

(Lestrade and Mycroft also both refer to Sherlock as a child, much to his chagrin.)

Mycroft’s overarching concern seems to be Sherlock’s safety and sobriety, and Lestrade’s actions mirror this. We haven’t been told how Sherlock and Lestrade first started working together—all we know is that it started some five years before the events of ASiP, when Sherlock was was in his mid-twenties.

Twenty-something junkie geniuses get bored. Very bored. They need something as an alternative to getting high. I wonder which came first for Lestrade—Mycroft’s test, or Sherlock’s first case for the Yard.

In any case, I think he and John both passed big brother’s test with flying colors.

People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whinny angsty teen.
