It’s that simple.

This is why universal programs are important. Every single kid in my school got an eye test through the school at age 10. We just had some opticians come in and take over a room for a week to test every child. Testing for shit like colourblindness too. You need to test every single kid, or some of them will get missed. They might get missed because their parents don’t have vision problems and missed the signs, they might get missed because their parents can’t afford regular opticians visits, they might get missed because their parents couldn’t afford glasses, or couldn’t afford new lenses when a kids’s prescription changed. but they’ll get missed, and that’s really, really bad.

Systemic inability to afford glasses is terrible. I forget how lucky we are here to have the NHS. I mean, my mum hated her big blue NHS glasses, but she had them. And when I got glasses age 14 you got an £80 voucher for kids frames, and then lenses were free. IDK what it’s like now what with the cuts and all, but universal access to basic healthcare is so important.

People underestimate the degree to which kids do badly in school because of vision problems. Personally, if I were helping a child who was failing, it’s one of the first things I’d check.

With wealthier kids who actually get eye exams, and have their vision corrected to 20/20, it’s visual processing problems like difficulty converging at near or processing clutter or tracking. With poorer kids, it can be all of that, or just needing glasses.

And then kids grow up thinking they’re stupid or lazy when really they just can’t see.

Many people don’t think of poor eyesight as a disability, but it is. You don’t have to be legally blind to benefit from accommodations, i e eyeglasses.

This is why it pisses me off when yt leftists say the Black Panthers breakfast program was not “revolutionary enough”. The mere act of surviving is resistance and revolutionary. When everyone wants your children dead, feeding them and ensuring their survival is resistance to the status quo. Fuck yt leftists. Y’all ain’t shit.

As a lifelong glasses wearer (22 years now) and an educator, I fucking hate these types of headlines because it’s like…omg…like…if we stop and like…provide for children’s basic needs they’ll perform better?  What sort of sorcery is this?! 

How fucking revolutionary that humans can reach their real potential when given the proper tools to do so.

/s

The system is built to keep the poor, the POC, the disabled, and other marginalized groups at the bottom.  It happens in so many ways; it’s quite insidious what poverty does to keep someone under your thumb.

This is powerful and absolutely true.

squirrel girl is canonically more powerful than thanos

if anyone is wondering “how the fuck?”: this was a pretty complicated thing that marvel set up, where they evaluated each hero and villain’s capabilities based on who they defeated, how they defeated them, who they were defeated by, and so on.

except, as it turns out, squirrel girl has defeated a LOT of powerful villains. case in point, her very first appearance has her solo-defeating doctor doom, without the help of iron man (who was nearby). this was also one of the few occasions where doom was defeated and it WASN’T a doombot. this turned squirrel girl into kind of a meme once the story hit the internet for obvious reasons, even though this story was just a one-shot. so then marvel brings her back, and has her defeat three villains in one comic, INCLUDING THANOS. (they even had other characters confirm that it wasn’t a trick, it wasn’t a fake thanos, that was actually thanos and he lost to squirrel girl because she set squirrels on him.)

the result? squirrel girl always wins. if there is an argument about “who would win?”, and squirrel girl is one of the options, then she wins by default because she’s squirrel girl. and this means that squirrel girl has to be the most powerful character in marvel by raw stats, because she always wins. you genuinely can’t beat squirrel girl.

by the by: she’s coming to the mcu soon in the new warriors tv show. that should be entertaining.

LITERALLY MY ONE COMPLAINT ABOUT INFINITY WAR: THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF THEY WOULD HAVE JUST INTRODUCED SQUIRREL GIRL. SHE IS A BADASS AND WE DON’T DESERVE HER.

Oops, I started a ridiculous challenge.

This is why it’s ridiculous, fyi:


Listen… my entire personal life is fucked… but I have written over 2000 words without using the letter ‘i’ even once… does that count for anything…

This is… I mean. Incredible. But terrifying.

You’ve written over 2000 words with no ‘it’. No ‘ing’. Oh God, no ‘ing’.

You’re a force to be reckoned with.

No ‘it’, no ‘is’, no ‘-ing’, no ‘in’, no ‘I’. I’m on 2,700 words now, and I’m… not sure how I’ve managed to do this. Dialogue is proving the biggest challenge, unsurprisingly. Why did I do this to myself?

So this is going to be like 15-20k when it’s done… um

If I finish this, I will probably count it amongst my greatest achievements.

Op you’re the most powerful person on writeblr right now

That’s good to hear because I’ve lost all semblance of control with respect to every other facet of my life, but

image

I’m maybe a third of the way through now?? So that’s good???? And now I’m going to have a very relaxing bath??????

I probably have about another 14,000 words to go and honestly, when I hit 10k (the expected halfway point), I’m going to treat myself to writing 100 words of something else that has the dang letter ‘i’ in it

Nearly wept when I realised I couldn’t use the word ‘frantic’ earlier, but

7.5k is my next milestone, and it actually might happen tomorrow, which is unnerving. How should I celebrate??

Getting really bad impostor syndrome today and feeling 95% sure that I will never amount to a thing and will probably never finish this story, and so in response to that dumb brain thought I did this

image

Suck it, subconscious.

You are a force of nature and I am both impressed and terrified.

Please publish this somewhere when you a e done so we can read it holy shit

I absolutely will!! In other news I hit 10k today and that’s without a thesaurus and oh golly, my poor think-box

This author is a sleeping God among mortals

The Earth fears their awakening into their full powers

Full powers yet to be confirmed, but after a short hiatus, I have returned

When I get to 12k, I might do a very elaborate jig

I really hope the title of your story is “Team.”

Characterization done right.

Steve Rogers in a single gif.

We joke about Steve’s patriotism as his strong suit, but his actual strength was his sense of moral right. His whole philosophy is summed up in the line “I don’t like bullies” in the first movie. Steve loves his country. He loves it enough to be at the front of the line trying to fix what he sees as moral wrong in it.

kehinki: #there isn’t even any indication he loves his country t b h#all we know is that he wants to fix what he deems morally impermissible#”I don’t like bullies /I don’t care where they’re from/”#that last bit is important

steve rogers is patriotic in the most real sense: he represents the concept at the core of the american ideal, the concept of freedom that is the reason our political system is designed to adapt and alter itself for constant improvement.

he is not loyal to any momentary leader or agenda, and when those leaders and agendas stand contrary to his core ideal of self-determination and freedom from oppression, he’ll speak up without hesitation.

honestly, i never would’ve thought captain america would be my favorite superhero, but he’s the activist i aspire to be.

Captain America is loyal to nothing but the dream.

The problem with Captain America’s image in the public mind is that people recite the first line of his byword and ignore the last part :

My country, right or wrong;
if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”

image
Not to mention his
speech in Spiderman #537
.


My favorite line from the issue:
“This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree besides the river of truth, and tell the whole world— —No, you move.

Steve Rogers is a radical and that’s why I love him.

^^^^^

This is actually one of my favorite things about Steve Rogers/Cap- he believes wholeheartedly in the American Dream while at the same time acknowledging the American reality. In other words, he believes in the potential that America has and does what he can to fix what is wrong with it so that America can one day live up to that potential. He understands that love doesn’t mean blind acceptance. It means, instead, that you care enough about something or someone to help it/them improve and be what they are capable of being. Steve Rogers rejects jingoism because he believes we can be so much better than we are.

I kinda want to laugh at the idea that burning the heart-shaped herb means the plants are gone, like FUCK…have you ever weeded a garden in your LYFE?? You WISH burning plants killed them, holy shit. Those plants’re gonna come back even thicker AND they’ll have extra fertilizer from the ash compost. They’re vibranium plants, those roots run deep.

@airplanesandcookies

All this plus HELL YES SHURI’S SEED VAULT!!!!

Erik: BURN THEM

Attendants: Are you sure? That’s gonna set us back, like, a whole six months…

Erik: YES I’M SURE. I WANT THEM GONE.

Attendants: …We’re just not gonna mention that this won’t actually get rid of them.

Basically, I think the whole nation of Wakanda was like, “We’re gonna humour this guy to achieve our own ends until we can find a way to get rid of him.”
