Daily Show correspondent Michael Che tries to find a safe place to report from.
…you probably don’t know how it is used or its history.
I know a lot of people think it just means straight people and it’s a harmless jab at the privileged but it is not.
It is a biphobic, cissexist, racist and generally awful term.
As you can see “breeders” was chanted at bisexuals during London Pride this year and this is not an isolated incident, this is a regular experience at Pride around the world for many bisexuals. It is not only equating them as straight people (since this insult is used against straight people too) but also hypersexualises them for being “good breeders”, there’s the biphobia.
As the comic demonstrates this is especially hard for people who for whatever reason cannot have children, having problems “breeding”, this includes people who have misscarried, people who have recovered from illnesses where their reproductive parts have had to be removed, trans people who have undergone gender ressignment surgery and intersex people. It is essentially stripping people down to their reproductive capabilities and genitals, there’s your cissexism.
The word also has a very racist history, during the slave era “breeder” was often used to refer to black women who were designated for breeding new slaves and even now “welfare breeder” is used as a derogatory term to refer to, primarily, black single mothers. When this word is aimed at poc, especially black and latina women, it brings up a reminder of racism and being stripped of their autonomy to become livestock, there’s your racism.
It can also be very misogynistic when it is aimed at women since reducing women to reproductive value in general is a core value of misogyny.
Seriously don’t use this word, it sucks, it hurts people, let it die.
And that’s the way things are.
There are about a billion arrangements of “Bad Apple!!” but this one, performed with traditional Japanese instruments, is one of the best and most unique that I’ve seen.
It’s the complete opposite of the bouncy techno remixes (which, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy) that make up a lot of Touhou Project fan music, and actually feels a lot truer to the nature of Gensokyo.

YES HELLO. I have just started college and made the extremely unfortunate discovery that my financial aid fell through and I am barely hanging on by borrowing money from friends and family. I also now have to pay $350/month for rent on top of the $1000 or so I owe to people. SO, it would be HELLA RAD if you guys could take some commissions from me.
SO, WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?
As seen above, I am offering the following things;
Bust - $15 USD // Waist up - $22 USD // Full Body - $30 USD
Bust- $10 USD // Waist up - $15 USD // Full Body - $20 USD
Adding additional characters to an image will be $10 USD
Aside from those, I am also doing Doodle Dumps - $50+ USD for b/w and $75+ for color.
Doodle dumps are a compilation of 5+ images on a single canvas and will consist of at least two waist-ups and several busts. They will be of the same line quality as a colored sketch. ( you may request a single, additional character in the same piece for no extra charge, but any more will result in additional cost. Adding more characters also guarantees 2 more images per doodle dump. )
And, of course, there’s much more to see on my blog.
More info under cut!
Give this bab your money. I’ll know if you don’t. I’m money psychic.
On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.
Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W. Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.
Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket.
Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.
The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.
