professor oak do you know anything about pokemon at all
Imagine a wall full of circular holes, that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.
Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.
Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality — comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.
“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries.
“I helped you get the drill!!!!” the circle shrieks.
“Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.
The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion.
“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”
“YOU’RE BEING UNEQUAL AND HURTING MY FEELINGS!” the circle wails. “I DON’T SUPPORT YOUR HOLE IF IT DOESN’T FIT ME TOO. GIVE ME MY DRILL BACK.”
“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”
“I ONLY CARED WHEN I THOUGHT YOU’D MAKE A HOLE EVERYONE COULD FIT THROUGH. YOU’RE PERPETUATING INEQUALITY!!!”
“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”
“I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN A CIRCLE, OMG. I’VE HAD TO WORK HARD ALL MY LIFE TOO. YOU’RE JUST BEING BIGOTED AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I CAN’T CONTROL, JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU.”
“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”
“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”
“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.
It’s kind of sad
That we have to draw comics using colorful shapes
To explain systematic inequality to people
remember when yugioh was straight fucked up.
I hope she didn’t see the smut fics

Does anybody notice what I’m noticing here?
When Karkat calms down Gamzee’s rage, he’s speaking in lime green text.
This is important, isn’t it?
Why is this so adorably cute?hcubudsivkmldskl
SHIT HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THAT
Oh man, that’s GOT to be REALLY important actually.
If you subscribe to the theory that Karkat is a limeblood with a mutated pigment gene making his blood candy red, then this could lend insight into what was the special ability the limebloods possessed that prompted the upper class to eliminate them
they may have been especially good at pacifying the upper class, or in other words, they made amazing moirails.
And were killed off because the upper class WANTED to be violent and power hungry, and felt threatened by the limebloods ability to make them more mild
That would also make a pattern. Most of the cannonically most effective moirails are midbloods with some shade of green as their blood.
aughhhhh thats rEALLY INTERESTING HMMMM
another reinforcement to that theory:
Eridan was hell-bent on genocide against the land-dwellers and treated almost all of them with disdain, EXCEPT KARKAT, who he often treated as a friend and a go-to guy for advice, despite being a low-blooded mutant.
Perhaps this same power was used to simmer down Eridan’s genocidal tendencies. Feferi wore herself out trying to keep him in line, but Karkat seemed to effortlessly shift Eridan’s disposition to that of friendlier tone.
Has anyone else noticed that
sopor slime is LIME GREEN?
And it’s supposed to calm trolls down while they sleep?
don’t think I wouldn’t forget that there’s also CANDY RED sopor slime. I don’t know what’s up with the blue but do you people see what I’m getting at here?
Baby ducks are ruining the sanctity of marriage.
God damn motherduckers
adam and eve, not huey and louie
Guys, please stop.
I will do nearly anything for a joke. However I recognize that the petition system is a good thing, and if we abuse it because we think we’re hilarious, it will go away.
Remember that hilarious Death Star petition? Well because of that, they raised the signature quota for these petitions. Please let’s not have that happen again. Thanks.
