man I love this job and the tiny baby but the dad is so weird about gender it’s so uncomfortable

like he doesn’t misgender me or anything but like I think he’s trying to affirm me via ~manly ribbing~ or something????? like he laughed at me for having a bow on my bag and grooming my eyebrows and having pink hair and wearing leggings???????? idk it’s really weird and I’ve tried to ask him to stop but maybe I haven’t been firm enough

Noting that the other actors were exhausted and “destroyed physically” by filming in the intensive Jaeger cockpit harnesses, del Toro said: “The only one that didn’t break was Rinko Kikuchi, the girl. She never complained… I asked Rinko her secret and she said ‘I think of gummi bears and flowers.’ I try to do that in my life now.”

I was talking to my mam a few years ago about the decline of the Irish language since the 1800s and she said that besides her love of the language itself, the main reason why she doesn't want it to die out is because, and I quote, "it'll mean that the British will have won" and that's stuck with me ever since.

This is a bigger deal than this post lets on. The British came into Ireland and did everything they could to erase the Irish culture. They renamed everything on maps to get rid of the colloquial names of landmarks and roads and things that had been used for centuries. They also prevented the Irish language’s usage in education and government which has reduced its usage to under 80,000 people who use it outside of the educational system today (after a cultural revival).

VIVA AN GAEILGE

Had this convo with my dad the other day. I think we should always protect our culture at all cost.

The loss of the Irish language at this point would be one of British Imperialism’s most devastating triumphs over the Irish people. Cultural Imperialism taught us that we were less, that we were backwards, that our language was that of peasants and vagrants. If we let Irish die it will be the most literal silencing of all. Forgoing our own words for theirs. We should all make the effort to use whatever “cúpla focal” we have, even if all you can say is “An bhfuil cead again dúl go dtí an leithreas.” It is especially important to use Irish on social sites like this. We need to make Irish a living language again. 

Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste, ná Béarla cliste.

This doesn’t even cover it, though… The British also tore down Irish structures and replaced them all with British ones… Even now, all those Irish towns and Irish pubs that we think of as iconic are what the British built.  They also outlawed Irish music and dance, and ordered that all the Irish harps be destroyed. 

Stop moaning about it on fucking Tumblr and learn/teach Irish then! Whining about it on this website isn’t going to change what my ancestors did.

nobodys whining about it we’re discussing the importance of not letting our culture become entirely erased because of what your poxy ancestors did so shut the fuck up and eat your crumpets and tea m8
