    So that thing I did a few weeks ago where I got to dress up like somebody from ye olden times for a commercial just landed me another spot as a background ye olden times soldier boy for a short film thing.

    Surely the dates will flow once the ladies see me, resplendent, in a jerkin and cod piece.

    Oh hey Joey from Friends

    I've never seen friends so... fuck you?

    I feel like this is the appropriate response even if you have seen friends.

    Housemate made gingerbread and was very excited for me to get home from work so I could try some. She was so excited she attempted to feed me a biscuit as soon as I walked in the door, but due to our vast height difference she ended up just kind of smashing it into my chin.

    It was really good gingerbread though!

    Personally I'd take being compared to any of the F•R•I•E•N•D•S as a grave insult

    if you're going to be compared to any given friend, Joey is probably the way to go though. Possibly Chandler.

    Ah yes, this is a relatable conundrum.

    I often even have it with things I myself planned and am looking forward to

    Leslie Knope is extremely relatable on a good day

    I'll be passionate about my job and work too hard on stuff for friends and strongly prefer a good waffle over other breakfast foods and maybe tear up if someone gave me macaroni art because they cared enough to try

    I would find Leslie Knope absolutely insufferable in real life

    I mean she's pretty bad in the heightened reality of the show already

    Leslie Knope seems like an enthusiastic, positive person, like sure, she's a white liberal, but she seems like a genuinely good person

    Leslie Knope, like a lot of white liberals, has an optimism and faith in the system that is a bit at odds with the myriad ways in which the system is designed to keep the minorities she genuinely supports disenfranchised. White liberals tend to really struggle with praxis when it comes to confronting biases in spaces they themselves occupy and in their enthusiasm often step on the toes of movements that are actively fighting for beliefs they themselves proclaim.

    It's not implicitly shade, but it isn't an entirely positive descriptor either

    Capitalism and the US system of government have some much racism and classism built into them that they need to be dismantled

    I can see how white liberals would have difficulty acclimating to society on a mining moon under klingon rule

    No I genuinely don't understand how praxis is being used in this context

    Praxis: practice, as distinguished from theory

    In theory, "all men are created equal... entitled to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness..." means all human are equal and have the same rights

    In practice, it's been upper class heterosexual cisgendered white male Anglo Saxon Protestant landowners

    Ok so that statement is saying people struggle with confronting bias and allowing others to express their views in practice despite vociferously agreeing or wanting to do so in theory?

    Yeah. It's the difference between saying that you're against homophobia and actually taking a stand against your friends using gay a pejorative, as a very small scale example.

    I dislike how guys just hit "like" on everyone and thus likes from guys become meaningless
