dunno if youve ever noted this before but michigan farmers markets take foodstamps now and depending on the area are WAAY cheaper than any grocery store
kinda tired of “human” apparently being the endgame goal for all non-human entities. why is calling them “human” the highest praise they can receive in fiction. angels, demons, robots, aliens, etc. becoming literally human or being as close to human as possible is always considered the pinnacle of personal emotional achievement or something. it makes me uncomfortable.
why is there so much fiction that claims angels and robots cannot TRULY know what “human” experience is like until they themselves are human?? why do you think non-human entities can’t be passionate about music or art until they’re human. what part of these activities strikes anyone as exclusive to humanity in the first place. literally what the shit is that entire set of tropes and themes
i’ve heard about this, but i bet lots of followers would be grateful to know this info!
Lots of farmers markets take food stamps these days! Some will even double your money if you use food stamps. One near me has a deal where $1 of your SNAP benefits will get you $2 worth of produce. I’ve heard of other markets doing similar things, too, so it’s worth an ask!
im really interested in zombie apocalypse media as a projection and extension of young american male craving for power-based survival-of-the-fittest type narratives that celebrate violence and dehumanization of the other
It makes sense: the first Godzilla craze in japan reflected the fear they felt about the danger of nuclear radiation.
I dislike how survival horror used to be a genre stocked with female heroes, where men who couldn’t get along with others died, and now has become the opposite and are fantasies of dudes who don’t like other people to pretend that in a just post-societal world their awesome individuality would be recognized.
