to play music, skip first song.
The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”
Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.
Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.
You have a dinner date for seven. What time do you arrive?
Seven. Am. Case the restaurant. Run background checks on the staff. Can the cook be trusted? If not I gotta kill him. Dispose of the body. Replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.
No, but my favourite thing is that they showed up and all the other twins had matching outfits so they left and went across the road and bought matching shirts and wore them for the entire audition process.
You have been calling the “Law of the Cycle” by the name “Madoka Kaname”
I remember watching the behind the scenes on this show. The creator of the show said that they got so much fan mail saying this show was the most realistic hospital show.
My parents both worked in the medical profession my whole life, and when I was watching them come home, I could see echoes of what this show did. All other medical shows were so much about the drama. This one nailed it. It nailed the good, the bad, and everything in between.
Also, I read that Scrubs was more medically accurate than House, Grey’s Anatomy, and every other medical show on TV

|When does Nagisa realize that he’s in love with Rei? Same thing with Rei!|
It’s so difficult to say because doesn’t it seem like they have already? Yet they’re still not together! I can only guess, and yet there are so many moments between them I could be missing the subtlest, more important signs!
For Nagisa, the physical attraction came first. This is a true facet of his character, as we know he tends to fall for looks. However, these infatuations pass quickly, the horoscope notes. We can see his initial, physical attraction Rei pretty clearly in episode 3.
But what’s important is that his infatuation doesn’t end here. It develops further, past the initial stages of physical attraction. He doesn’t lose interest. It only grows and changes, develops to match Rei, who isn’t the suave athlete he appears. He’s a total dork, a stumbling, awkward, loud nerd. And that is what Nagisa ends up falling in love with.
Where, though, is this written in stone? It’s hard to say, because it happened so naturally. Nagisa hung off of Rei because he found him attractive and, through hanging off of him, grew closer until he became the one. He does take responsibility, too, and is protective or Rei beginning as early as episode 4. I’d say it’s pretty early on, because he is so protective of Rei, and takes his responsibility seriously, he is constantly looking out for Rei in ways he doesn’t for others quite as much. It’s a lot more sexual than romantic with Nagisa, because he is so shameless and such a tease, but there is genuine care behind all of his actions that goes far beyond initial attraction.
Timeline-wise, this was pretty soon after his simple physical attraction, yet he shows a genuine desire to support Rei. And this special attention eventually develops into love.
Nagisa expresses his love differently than Rei, though. He doesn’t stare longingly and isn’t quite as obvious in that way about his emotional attachment. But his joyfulness comes from having this close person to him that is all his, and it’s Rei’s presence that guides him through the nations relay, even when he’s not there. He is fully himself with Rei, feels safe when with Rei, and returns these feelings by protecting and defending Rei when necessary.
Rei has basically confessed his love when he said Nagisa “has an aura that I am attracted to and…I guess you can say that thanks to that, he has me completely wrapped around his finger” in the interview. And the way he looks at Nagisa gives it away completely.
When did he fall in love with Nagisa? Tough to say. He definitely had an attraction to him, beginning with when Nagisa called him beautiful. It’s the first time he really looks at Nagisa. He blushes, and then covers his face to try and regain composure.
e was partial to him, you can tell, because he joined swim team and began addressing him as “Nagisa-kun,” on more intimate terms. He becomes flustered and looks away before he blurts the new address out.
But was he in love with him at this point? Perhaps not. There was an attraction, an interest, but he barely knows Nagisa. He doesn’t know just how obnoxious and pushy he’s going to be, and he especially doesn’t know how much he’ll love every second of it regardless.
A lot of it was building up from there, as they became best friends and gradually began to rely on one another more than anyone else. And of course, the moment in the FrFr where he becomes flustered and reaches out for Nagisa’s hands. He becomes jealous easily, wanting all of Nagisa’s attention at several points. But I think episode 11 is where it was truly solidified. This look on his face is unlike any looks he gave Nagisa before, a look of purely gentle love.
And a lot of this just increased in what I call season 1 1/2, through the CD dramas, interviews, and official art, where Rei reveals more and more of his feelings for Nagisa.
