Infinite multiverses and I’m stuck in the one where superheroes are fictional and people kill other people for having different colored skin
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
This is so important, ‘cause I remember immediately after 9/11, everyone was really gung-ho about sending troops out to Iraq and Afghanistan and maybe about two or three years in, a lot of people realized that the whole ‘weapons of mass destruction’ excuse for war might not have been as genuine as originally thought, so people starting saying they wanted the troops to come home and stop getting killed for, essentially no reason (or some ambiguous, sham reason). The immediate response from conservatives was “WE NEED TO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!” but I always wondered (a) what the fuck that even meant and (b) how wanting them to come home and NOT GET BLOWN TO PIECES was somehow un-supportive of them.
The “SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!” people seemed to be implying, if you’re not pro-war, then you’re anti-military, and if you’re anti-military, then you must be anti-individual soldier and thus, you’re a horrible anti-American monster, and no one in this country wants to be labeled un-American. It was the most baffling thing to me and it still is tbh. Whenever I hear “Support our troops” I honestly wonder if they’re insinuating that my wanting our troops to come home and be safe is equivalent to me not being supportive. Truly confusing.
