the confederate flag is racist
"omg no it’s not! i’m just proud of my heritage!"
which is treating other human beings as property
"The Civil War wasn’t about slavery it was about State’s Rights!"
yeah the state’s right to own slaves lmao
Fun fact, this flag
isn’t actually the Confederate flag.
The first three flags were the national Confederate flags. The first one was scrapped because it looked too much like the Union flag (you kind of want to be sure who you’re shooting at on the battlefield). They then came up with the second flag, which was called the “Stainless Banner.” While the white was originally meant to represent the glory of the white man, it looked a lot like a flag of surrender, which was…not exactly what they wanted. And so they scrapped that one and came up with the third flag by sticking some more red on there to break up the white. Turns out it still looked like a flag of surrender.
However, it was still racist.
I have spent so much time on Tumblr, that it baffles me when someone has a very closed mind about sexualities.
Tiny angry top hat Vi is the best Vi.
destroy this “more than friends” bullshit
destroy this disgusting fucking idea that being in a romantic relationship is more important/closer than being in a platonic relationship
destroy the idea that friendships are less than romances
destroy the idea that you need to be romantically involved with someone if you want to be really close to them
