    friendly reminder that st*pid, l*me, id**t, and d*mb are all ableist

    stop using them

    they’re not cool

    Friendly reminder: 

    no 

    Also, implying that disabled folks should get offended by stupid, idiot, lame, and dumb has far more ableist implications than the terms themselves.

    incorrectusage:

    Okay I’m not reblogging that post but

    If “she/hers” aren’t female pronouns and “he/his” aren’t male

    then calling a man “she” or a woman “he” isn’t misgendering. Since the pronouns have no gender. And are, in fact, nothing more than nicknames…

    I’ve got this nagging feeling that people who say “she isn’t a female pronoun/he isn’t a male pronoun” are people who present as their birth sex and want to continuing using the pronouns that go with their birth sex while still calling themselves trans.

Arecibo reply: at least 25,000 years too early to be aliens. and without FTL travel its about 50,000 years too early.


Polywater: Take water, add some salt, oils and soups and the boiling point lowers and you get a more gelatinous material. Who knew that salt water has a lower melting point?!


Bermuda triangle: The Bermuda triangle has no more or fewer airplane crashes or ship wreaks than any other area of ocean.


A lot of these are either boring, unsurprising thought experiments, Hoaxes, miss interpretation or hear-say.


Well yes, technically speaking, 100% of these phenomena have earthly, non-paranormal explanations. Weirdos like me collect and obsess over these little bits of strangeness because we like a good story.

    wtfsocialjustice:

    i don’t get these new “cisphobic” blogs. why be so loud about something you’d actually never say to someone else’s face once you get off the computer? lol

    Preeeetty sure that is the point?

    It’s the whole Internet Tough Guy thing.

    But in this case it’s not like an angry middle-class white kid who’s maybe gonna shoot people and be an asshole. It’s people who actually are subjected to horrible treatment by the people they dislike and they’re probably just joking or blowing off steam most of the time.

    It’s immature and it’s annoying but it’s nothing to really worry about unless they start to get seriously threatening or something. They’re mad at the cis people who’ve hurt them and they’re making fun of the idea that they’re “just as bad” as people who actually try to oppress them.

    But they aren’t subjected to horrible treatment, that’s the thing. At least they’re not subjected to horrible treatment because they are trans. If you are a femme-presenting DFAB demigirl, you’re not an oppressed trans person, I’m sorry. People are using “cis” as the new “preps”, that’s why “cisphobia” is so toxic. Like yes it does suck to be at the bottom of the high school food chain but I promise the preps and jocks are not picking on you because they are cis. They’re picking on you because that’s how the high school pecking order works, and that’s how it has always worked. And instead of talking about the toxic teenage social hierarchy for what it is, they’re using cisness as a scapegoat, which in turn hurts actual trans people who need cis allies in order to get on with their transitions and with their lives.

    spiral-shark asked: I see it as near impossible to harmfully appropriate hippie culture, considering the whole onus behind the movement. Unless, of course you heavily capitalized and regulated the distribution of said cultural objects.

    culturalappropriationon:

    It is really just a subculture of American culture and I don’t see how you could harm it for similar reasons

    It’s fine to be a little annoyed when you see people copying your scene’s aesthetic, but that isn’t cultural appropriation in any meaningful sense.

    Mary Sue is not any girl character who dares to be larger than life. That interpretation is fairly recent and incredibly annoying.

    Mary Sue is that character who, when they show up, every other character and the narrative itself becomes little more than a reflection of his or her presence and activities. The writer wants us all to be as fixated on Mary Sue as they are, and the pressure that puts on the reader is the source of the animosity. 

    let me splain people a thing about this god damn term: its interpretation and usage has become so stupidly wide as to be completely god damn meaningless. if you need like two paragraphs of words to explain what you REALLY MEANT when you used that word, the word is goddamn useless! IT IS NOT SERVING ITS FUNCTION ANY MORE, YOU CAN LET IT GO NOW
