"Starcrash" (1978)

Because sometimes, the only movie that really does it for you is a shitty Roger Corman Star Wars ripoff with LOTS of space sluts, a weapon of mass destruction called the Doom Machine, and David Hasselhoff using a lightsaber.

idea: let’s watch this and play “sounds like a drink” and laugh our poor, sad asses off

Interesting, why do you consider harry potter is a dystopia?

I find it impossible to think of Harry Potter as anything BUT a dystopia. Even Hogwarts itself is a dystopia.

Children are segregated based on a personality test at age 11, and then left to fulfill roles that were set out a thousand years ago, leading to cultural divides that continue for the rest of their lives. The Hogwarts house system is one of the main foundations of the pureblood/muggleborn divide in HP. And I haven’t even gotten into the issues with how Hogwarts is run, how useful it is as a tool for preparing people for adult life, and how dangerous it is to live there.

As for Wizarding Britain at large:

  • There’s no evidence that the Ministry of Magic is organized by anything other than cronyism.
  • The Minister for Magic is not a democratically elected leader.
  • Voldemort easily finds a foothold in mainstream, society (even within living memory of his last reign of terror!) and his supporters easily infiltrate the government and implement all sorts of nightmarish and bigoted policies.
  • There’s surprisingly little evidence of people working to innovate any aspect of wizarding society, with the exception of eccentrics like the Weasley Twins or Luna Lovegood.
  • Purebloods find it bizarre if a witch or wizard takes much interest in muggle culture, even if they are muggleborn.
  • Umbridge is allowed to torture children and spread propaganda at the only major educational institution in the country.
  • There’s a huge amount of discrimination relating to non-human races throughout the wizarding world, particularly House Elf slavery.

I could go on at some length on this topic, but instead I’ll finish with my pet theory: that Wizarding Britain is so fucked up that the rest of the wizarding world has just given up on it.

We know from the Quidditch World Cup and the Triwizard Tournament that there are plenty of magical cultures all over the world, but Britain receives NO kind of international help when Voldemort is on the rise or when the Ministry of Magic is in turmoil.

Obviously the “real” explanation is that the Voldemort/Harry/Hogwarts narrative must to be isolated for Harry’s story to be told… but I still quite like the explanation that Wizarding Britain has been abandoned by the rest of the world. Their society has become so warped, so backward and so beholden to irrational beliefs and traditions that other international wizarding powers have decided the situation is unsalvageable.

There’s no point in stepping in to get rid of Voldemort unless he becomes a threat overseas, because another Dark Lord will probably rise up in a few years anyway. And Wizarding Britain seems functionally incapable of defending itself from this threat without the help of Harry and his team of teen sidekicks — who by the end of the series are all suffering from PTSD because they have spent their formative years fighting in a dystopian war.

(P.S. Even if my pet theory ISN’T true, then the international wizarding community must still have SOME reason not to step in and help Britain fight back against Voldemort. Which, in itself, makes the world of Harry Potter seem even more dystopian than before.)

YES GOOD YES

SORRY FOR THE NIPPLES
(not really)

Something I’ve been thinking about for a while with tattoo ideas is one in this kind of china/porcelain blue. I’d get a pretty floral or nature-inspired design, like one would find on a teacup, and I think I’d want it starting on the back of my left shoulder and crawling over onto the front of my shoulder and top of my arm. Maybe. It would be a completely decorative piece, no personal symbolism to this one, and I’m thinking of having a primary focus on gardenias?

Actually, I’m just tossing thoughts around. I have SO many tattoo ideas that may never come to fruition, and I definitely don’t have the funds for a new piece right now. BUT FOR THE FUTURE!

im so damn tired of neurotypicals making posts about what is or isn’t “normal” in relationships, trying to defend themselves from the Big Bad Crazy Person who might someday have their heart

Those posts aren’t about neuro-atypical people, they’re about avoiding manipulative behavior and abusive relationships. Wording it as being about what’s “normal” instead of what’s healthy is misleading and potentially damaging, but don’t shit on people trying to avoid bad situations.

cool, I’m glad you know what posts I’ve seen and what made me, a person with type 2 bipolar, reblog this!

Woah, I was suuuuuper not trying to take it to a personal level with you or the OP. (And reading your tags, I think you’re reading a lot more aggression, or frankly any emotion, into what I wrote than I meant at all.) My experience of anyone writing a “X isn’t normal in relationships” post is probably different from yours, and most of the ones I’ve seen are about not letting people, say, gaslight you or regularly manipulate you into doing things you don’t wanna do, which nobody should have to take from anyone.

The original post has nothing to do with gaslighting or abusive relationships, it’s to do with targeting people based on their mental heath, and prioritizing the experiences of neurotypical people in relationships over those who are neuroatypical.  This post warrants no calling out.

if anything, gaslighting would be covered by this post!  in gaslighting, the abuser belittles the person so much that they experience cognitive dissonance.  That could class the person being gaslit as neuroatypical while they are experiencing that abuse, if they chose to identify as such.

Also interesting that you are willing to ask the op about their experiences if they want to talk about it, but not me.  Especially since we know each other in real life.  Hm.

but like that’s cool and all.  I accept that what you’ve said is the closest to an apology any of us can presently hope for.  Here’s hoping that changes in the future.

With the lack of context on the original post, I think that my misunderstanding of what type of posts the OP meant was pretty understandable? I appreciate the continued clarification from you and them both, though, and I totally get that I was referring to a very different kind of post.

Honestly, it’s because we know each other irl that your response felt really hostile to me, so I didn’t want to put myself in a position to let anyone make me feel belittled and worse about myself. So no, I didn’t ask for further information from you, since I already felt pretty picked on.

Actually, I have apologized to the OP, and I’ll apologize again for any hurt feelings. I’ve seen few/none of the kind of post you’re talking about that target people based on their mental health status, so I was responding based on the information I had, but I never meant to offend you or anyone else and I’m sorry for that.

And yeah, I hope that people stop making that kind of post, because it’s obviously really hurtful and crappy of them.

you have no clue what posts i’m talking about. bye bye

I guess not? I’m thinking of “Don’t let people gaslight you, that isn’t healthy” kinds of posts, which, um, I don’t see as problematic because gaslighting is awful and you shouldn’t let anyone do it to you. So, I want to listen if you want to tell me what you’re talking about? But if not, that’s cool.

just today i saw a post about how someone wanting to talk to you a lot (like i do, because i have a personality disorder and severe abandonment fears from trauma/neglect) Isn’t Normal, previously i’ve seen dozens of posts about how bad ~dependency~ is written by people without disabilities, there are cautionary guides all over the internet on how to avoid dating someone with borderline and schizoid disorders, a little while ago i saw a huge post by an NT person claiming it’s abusive to ask someone to remind you when to take your meds. i have no idea why you would jump to thinking i was talking about gaslighting, which, by the way, happens to mentally ill people (mild or severe) ALL THE TIME, because our version of events is always in doubt. i’m being hostile because your response was ignorant and diminishing and i don’t always feel like providing buckets of context when i make a text post.

I mean, I was using gaslighting as an example, although I didn’t make that super clear. I feel like the same thing I said applies to posts like, “Don’t let people talk you into stuff you don’t really want to do,” and other things as well.

I haven’t seen many posts like the ones you describe, but yeah, I can see how they’re pretty crappy. (It’s abusive to ask for a reminder to take meds? That’s absurd.) And honestly, they don’t account for different folks’ various healthy relationship styles even within neurotypical people, let alone alienating people with mental illnesses, which that obviously does and is also super terrible. So I can definitely understand and empathize with your original post now that I have some context.

I find what I said reasonable based on the information I had, since I don’t think I’ve seen many/any posts like the ones you describe, so I won’t apologize for that, but I am sorry for causing negative feelings. Thank you for taking the time to tell me about all of this. :3
