honestly one of the most fascinating things to me is how andy samberg of all people progressed into this sweet mellow open feminist who gets really annoyed when people make sexuality or gender jokes and actively called out how pointless it is to have a “men’s choice awards” and dresses like my cute substitute teacher from high school

Not quite what it seems. But still funny.

Oh thank god, I’ve periodically wondered about this photo ever since I first saw it.

Almost everything matters!

I’m starting to get tired of this leftist habit of declaring things irrelevant.

On second thought, this deserves its own post.

I’m tired of leftists saying that any policy which doesn’t fix everything doesn’t matter.

“A female President will still bomb people!” “A stronger social safety net won’t stop corporate greed from consuming everything it can!” “Gay marriage won’t end transphobia!” “More black representation in movies won’t solve racism!”

No shit. Patching a hole in your bedroom wall won’t make your teeth whiter or cure your grandmother’s dementia. It’s still worth doing.

A female president might still bomb people, but if this potential female  president will bomb fewer people than that potential male president (who has indicated he’d happily use nuclear bombs), that means people will live who would otherwise die.

A stronger social safety net may not stop corporate greed from consuming everything it can, but it will effectively limit what corporate greed can consume, and help people whose livelihoods have been eaten.

Gay marriage might not end transphobia, but it will undermine hostility to gender nonconformity and assist many trans people in getting to marry or getting to stay married, by not making everything dependent on their legally-recognized gender.

More black representation in movies won’t solve racism, but it’ll give black people a better reflection of themselves and get white people used to seeing black people in places (the hero, the enjoyable antihero, the fan-favorite antagonist) they’re used to only seeing other white people, and that will affect how they’re equipped to see black people in real life.

Nothing will fix everything, but it’s still important to fix something.
