This is my dog, Lily. My sister and I bought her, without my dads permission and brought her home as a puppy about a year ago. My dad hates her, but me & my 2 sisters love her to death. This dog helps me cope with my depression and shes always great company to my sisters and I. My dad describes her as “tolerable.” Today, after having this dog for over a year, my dad is saying she needs to go, while he is angry at us for bringing her home, she has become part of the family and we can’t get rid of her, it’s too painful. After begging my dad for a while, he was still stuck on getting rid of her. I mentioned tumblr as a final option, and surprisingly he agreed to it. If I can get 200,000 notes by the end of July, we can keep her. He thinks it’s impossible, but I have faith. I’ve seen tumblr do it before. Please guys help me, I love this dog more than myself. Please oh please :c

FUCKING REBLOG THIS NOW
Can I just talk a bit about the Game of Thrones finale? Ok, so here is the thing, I know people are saying that the whole last scene thing was completely racist/ had that whole white savior complex thing going…I don’t see it that way. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely saw the white savior complex at play here but I think that was kind of intentional and I’ll tell you why it isn’t exactly a racist move on the creators part:
Dany* sees herself as a savior. She has a very black and white view of ALL things. I think the scene was dramatized to how how Dany FELT about the situation, it was fantasy. I mean it was real, that MOMENT was real, when the former slaves felt saved by her. But here is the thing, Dany just simply can’t save them all. So what we are seeing is the big climax before the downfall. Sure she all up and at ‘em right now but what happens next? I don’t think that Dany is at all responsible enough to full know what she is getting into by taking on thousands of people. (I think that this scene, simply put, is inflated to show how DANY sees the situation and will serve as a foil to a less happy scene next season or later)
Dany used to be a slave herself, she has some ethos appeal with them. One of the main things about the whole white savior complex is that the ‘white savior’ enters into the situation with privilege and has no understanding of the people that they are ‘saving’. Dany knows where they have been, in a way. She was sold by her brother to the Dothraki, she was basically OWNED by her brother for years. I mean did you not hear what she said? people learn to love their chains, she knows this because she loved her brother and he was her chain, he was her owner. She doesn’t want to own their freedom, because then it wouldn’t be freedom.
People in Morocco are mostly PoC, I hate to break it to you. I mean don’t get me wrong there are definitely white people in Morocco so the casting is a bit ‘meh’ in terms of political correctness and quite frankly it made me a bit uncomfortable seeing Dany almost literally as the white snowflake floating among the PoC. But I think this was intentional. They wanted the contrast between her and the freed slaves to show the hierarchy. She is the savior, they are the ones being saved. Now at this point you’re reading this and going ‘well wait a minute, doesn’t that just prove the point that the scene was complete racist bullshit!?!’ actually no it does not. The creators of this show are smart people. They know that nothing is ever a pure victory, and that there are no heroes. Hey, last week they even went the extra mile to kill ‘fetus-ned’ which was not even in the books. These guys aren’t much for the Disney stuff. So why are they showing Dany crowd surfing through PoC a la white snowflake? Simple.They want to engrain in our head this high point, they want to give us some inflated and distorted victory to show how Dany perceives the world. She has a very simple view of the world, and that has to change in order for her to make progress. She is NOT done developing as a character and quite frankly I think we’re going to see Dany’s dreams of being a savior fall apart. I think that is the whole point. **
*sorry I just didn’t want to spell Daenerys over and over again.
** I could be completely wrong, the creators might be turd heads don’t blame me for their folly.
lemme just bring this back
