if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure
if you had to take time off school you are not a failure
if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure
your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them
if I do not graduate in 4 years I am not a failure but my parents will be so disappointed and tell me about how they never had this problem back in their day.
i dont understand the stereotype that women are obsessed with shoes, like have u ever met a high school boy
i don’t think you people understand how exACTLY ACCURATE THIS FCUKNIG POST IS
It’s no coincidence that the central survivors at the end of the film aren’t tough white male patriarchs like Wilford or Curtis, but are Yona and Timmy: the polar opposites of the ruling classes who took charge of the train 17 years ago. Curtis is simultaneously a messianic cliche and a takedown of white saviour heroes, because the most important thing he does in the end is kill himself in order to save future generations from more of the same old bullshit.
He is a product of the train — in fact, the film makes sure to point out that Curtis can’t remember life before he was onboard — and as a result, he’s an asshole. He’s a brutal killer, and he has no qualms about meting out petty punishments like making Mason eat a cockroach bar while everyone else has sushi. The difference is that unlike Wilford and Gilliam, he recognises that he’s been corrupted by his surroundings. His drive for vengeance and power is the tool that frees people who otherwise might never have escaped: Yona and Timmy, the two great innocents of the movie. But if he’d survived as well, he probably would have turned into another Wilford.
it is so important to me that a korean girl and a little black boy are the final survivors and representation of the innocent in this film - Yona in a fashion that isn’t fetishizing or infantilizing or robbing her of agency, Timmy at all in defiance of society robbing black children of their childhood by assuming that they have no innocence at all and aren’t worth protecting
if i had a dollar for every time an adult asked me about college then i’d have enough money to pay for college

if you’re feeling like a big awkward fuck up who messes up everything just think about how if u were a character in a work of fiction sooo many people would see your perceived flaws as lovable and endearing character traits and how youd still be their favorite character to draw coffeeshop AUs of regardless
