i forgot players i know i’m sry
this is your friendly neighborhood Only Person Who Still Cares About the WHA poppin’ in to say these are all great!!! except that gordie howe didn’t play his whole career for the detroit red wings. he played for the wings for like 100 years and then spent 6 years in the WHA, and then returned to the NHL to play for the hartford whalers.
"that’s nice mollyhall but no one cares about the WHA," you say.
WELL YOU SHOULD BECAUSE THE WHA BROKE THE RESERVE CLAUSE AND ALLOWED HOCKEY PLAYERS TO DEMAND A FAIR WAGE, AND ALSO BROUGHT WAYNE GRETZKY INTO PROFESSIONAL HOCKEY, AND ALSO BROKE ENORMOUS BARRIERS FOR EUROPEAN PLAYERS PLAYING IN NORTH AMERICA.
"WHY DOES NO ONE ELSE LOVE THE WHA THE WAY I DO???" the blogger screams into the abyss. somewhere in the distance, mark howe raises a fist in solidarity and whispers: "yo gurl, you and i both loved."
When you say your a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.
Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.
Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.
It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.
It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.
It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.
Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women"
this was sent to me by tumblr user mmmcoconut as a joke but the more i look at it the more i feel that it fundamentally describes the human condition as i understand it
a) thank you for telling me this, tumblr user moriann. i will make a special place for kuba wojewodzki in my Box of Douchebags.
b) does anyone else feel DEEPLY ANNOYED every time someone who has said/done something you like turns out to have said/done something that’s gross? like, COME ON DUDES, i am trying so hard to like you, and i feel like??? you’re not meeting me halfway??? all you have to do is NOT BE A SHITHEAD. you know? just don’t. just don’t be a shithead. MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE ON THIS.
c) i stand by the quote itself, because i think the idea of “controlled loneliness,” is like, 99% of the way that i deal with the world, but MAN i am bummed that it came from such a shitty source.
part of me is like: GURL U KNEW THE SHADOW BEHIND HER HAIR WAS WEIRD
and the other part of me was like: goddAMN i wanted there to be a celebrity somewhere who was broskies with sidney crosby and ALSO broskies with anna kendrick because iF THAT CELEBRITY EXISTED, I COULD MAINTAIN THE DREAM THAT ONE DAY THAT CELEBRITY COULD BE ME.
okay yes we would all love anna kendrick to date sidney crosby, it would be so wonderful, the things our creepy little hearts are made of, fine, FINE
WHY IS NO ONE ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTION WHICH IS: WHAT THE HELL PARTY IS THIS??? WHO IS THEIR MUTUAL FRIEND??? WHO INVITED ANNA KENDRICK AND SIDNEY CROSBY TO THE SAME PARTY.
