I need to prove a point to my homophobic friend.I’m writing down the urls of everyone who reblogs this in a notebook, and will present it to my friend when it is sufficiently full.
You’re gonna need a bigger book
man I don’t even care if my scribbles aren’t decodable and if you can’t tell the bird dinosaurs apart IT’S DONE AND THAT’S THAT
i like how you can see me progressively giving fewer and fewer shits about quality
E: SHIT I FORGOT A PAGE nobody look
::bwahahaha:: This is awesome.
This is adorable. There’s no greater affirmation of Garrus’ love for Shepard than that he spins ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT about her.

awkwardsituationist:photos by shawn heinrichs at mexico’s isla mujeres, site of the world’s largest aggregation of whale sharks. measuring up to fifty feet long (compare to the thirty foot boat seen here), whale sharks are extremely docile creatures. they are listed as vulnerable by the international union for conservation of nature and natural resources, and these photos were taken to promote the message that the economic benefits of shark tourism outweighs the value of the shark fin trade.
regarding the first and third photos, heinrichs noted, “to get a shot like this requires a lot of technical know-how and experience because focusing on an object above and below the water at the same time is challenging,” adding, “getting the horizon line level and water off the lens is an exercise in patience and determination.

they’re just sitting there
Cool, so how about only people that pay taxes get to decide what we do with those taxes?
I bet you wouldn’t be quite so interested in signing onto THAT little proposal…
What about vagina-penis interactions? Should we have a co-ed committee? Or does that fall under “about vaginas”?
Actually my favorite part about this attitude is that it literally silences millions of women whose duly elected representative is male.
Do actual rules for vaginas even exist?
I always thought a woman’s body was her own business and responsibility. Can someone explain what we’re bickering at over this post?
The op is referring to abortion laws. Basically stating that if a senator/congressperson doesn’t have a vagina..they shouldn’t get a vote on the law. Which I find a little ridiculous as in the US we have a representative government, and excluding them is literally removing the voices of millions of women from the debate.

why would i go to university if the job i wanna doesn’t demand me to go university?
someone who studies art isn’t necessarily smarter than an industrial business management assistant speaking 4+ languages :)
The increasingly huge trend of people slandering apprenticeships and trades as “things for dumb people” are why our generation is going to be effectively useless as far as actually keeping society in working order.
People have no idea anymore just how hugely valuable tradies are to society.
THE MACHINE DOES NOT FUNCTION WITHOUT PEASANTS.
^fucking this. Although craft/tradespeople are hardly ‘peasants’, specialised technical occupations are an enormous step up from menial labour and people who make a career out of their trade and develop a business for themselves often continue in further supplementary education years after they complete their apprenticeship to enhance their skillset. Which again is why this is potentially an impending social disaster, a person can’t just walk on to a work site and immediately start being an electrician. Hell even mixing and laying concrete is something you can fuck up pretty thoroughly if you haven’t got a clue - eg. the right type of cement, type of sand if using sand at all, what metal reinforcement to use, how to and having a clue is something you DEFINITELY need .
Also the value of university education really is so fucking overblown we don’t exactly live in a time where you need access to a University library to be able to read and discuss Philosophy, History, Psychology, Science, Economics or whatever to a sufficient degree to be literate in and understand those fields. Sure if you want to pursue certain careers professionally degrees are required as they put you through structured and rigorous study of various academic fields with people who know their stuff making sure you know what you’re talking about - but University is by no means a necessary condition for someone to be intelligent and knowledgeable - nor does it make a dumb person intelligent.
On that note, idiots with degrees are the fucking worst! Because now not only are they an idiot, but they feel a sense of authority and legitimacy about their own idiocy.
I have a feeling Anon is going to be one of those people >_>
"If you were really so smart…", you’d understand the following:
- Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory which posits that there are (at least) nine distinct modes where we can measure relative intelligence. It’s covered in every Intro Psych class worth it’s tuition.
- The world doesn’t really need yet another doctoral dissertation analyzing post-18th c. reactions to Shakespeare’s work, yet we will always be building, creating, breaking, and fixing material things.
- Modern universities have become little more than after HS “adult care” facilities to house the hordes of 20-somethings that “need to find” themselves.
- The average non-unionized plumber makes $50 K / an. in Canada as a journeyman / red ticket after 4 years in apprenticeship — the same length of time as a typical B.A.. University grads would enter the Hunger Games to win that kind of income.
- Universities were created to educate the upper classes (so they could continue in a life of leisure), provide teachers and clerics for future generations, and (later) conduct research. Universal access to uni / college education is a relatively new thing that still operates under the same principles.
- Even in those institutions that suffer from reduced enrollment, they somehow manage to increase the number of administrators and beurocrats; thereby raising the tuition even when they have less students. Why? I suspect it’s to make jobs for more graduates with otherwise useless degrees.
- Regardless of the post-grad degree you’re able to hang in a pretty frame, if you still plan on being “recognized” in any official capacity, you’ll likely be required to undergo specialized training and pay membership dues for the privilege of being recognized for the degree that you
wastedspent all those years earning. Did you seriousling think all those acronyms behind people’s names were for decoration: e.g. P.Eng = Professional Engineer, CAFP = Couples and Family Practice, DDS = Doctor of Dental Surgery, etc..
- A BA has about the same value as a Gr 12 did 20 years ago. Any real money can only be earned with at least an MA — in a field that isn’t already overburdened with post-grad moorons that have more time than sense.
Frankly, a university / college degree is more analogous to the wristband that you have to stand in line for, that gets you the honour of standing in yet another line to pay for tickets, to a concert that you’ll further have to stand in line for, in order to stand near the stage where you can no longer think or move because of the noise and crush of other zombie bodies.
The very last thing the world needs is another “intelligent” zombie.
the fact that racism and discrimination still exists is disgusting.
the fact that anti-racism and this godawful “discrimination is bad, everyone is equal, feelings over facts” mindset even exists is just disgusting
Stargate SG-1: Urgo
“It’s all about color. It’s about people deciding what you deserve. About people wanting what they don’t deserve. About whites thinking they run this world no matter what.”
Reblogging myself, because this is and will always be true.
Ain’t saying I hate all white people but you know this is true.
how do i reach deez kiiiids (spanish accent)
did you even watch this movie
did you fucking watch freedom writers
it was about softening racial divides and helping inspire kids who literally live every day of their lives in fear to rise above it and make a good life for themselves
good job on completely taking this out of context
The way sjws are praising this, is similar to when nazis/boneheads praise American History X (another movie that has an anti-racist message in the end).
Hey! Some context is exceedingly appropriate at this moment!
"Freedom Writers" takes place in LA immediately after the LA Riots in 1992, a time of extreme racial discrimination and prejudice in that city. Erin Gruwell becomes a teacher at a newly integrated high school. She’s excited and passionate about teaching until she gets “stuck” with the “not achieving” kids (otherwise known as the non-white kids, most of whom are black or Latino). The students self-segregate, there’s miniature wars as many of them are in opposing gangs, and they completely undermine everything she attempts to teach them because they don’t care. And you know why they don’t care? Because they can’t possibly see why education is relevant in a world where they’re fighting just to live to see another day, fighting to get home without being shot or threatened or watching their friends get killed. They’ve got way more on their minds than an English book.
Until Erin helps them find some common ground. She sticks a line of tape onto the ground and asks them questions, asking them to step onto the line if the question pertains to them. Questions like “are you in a gang” and “have you ever watched a friend die?” She is truly one of the only people that wants to help these kids; she faces opposition by the department head (played, very fittingly, by the same woman who plays Umbridge) and the English teacher of the “achieving” white students, who outranks her seniority-wise. And those kids learn and grow from each other, and they become a family of sorts.
You wanna know what OTHER quote was in this movie?
"Maybe we should talk about art. Tito’s got real talent, don’t you think? You know something? I saw a picture just like this once, in a museum. Only it wasn’t a black man, it was a Jewish man. And instead of the big lips he had a really big nose, like a rat’s nose. But he wasn’t just one particular Jewish man. This was a drawing of all Jews. And these drawings were put in the newspapers by the most famous gang in history. You think you know all about gangs? You’re amateurs. This gang will put you all to shame. And they started out poor and angry and everybody looked down on them. Until one man decided to give them some pride, an identity… and somebody to blame. You take over neighborhoods? That’s nothing compared to them. They took over countries. You want to know how? They just wiped out everybody else. Yeah, they wiped out everybody they didn’t like and everybody they blamed for their life being hard. And one of the ways they did it was by doing this: see, they print pictures like this in the newspapers, Jewish people with big, long noses… blacks with big, fat lips. They’d also published scientific evidence that proved that Jews and blacks were the lowest form of human species. Jews and blacks were more like animals. And because they were just like animals it didn’t matter if they lived or died. In fact, life would be a whole lot better if they were all dead. That’s how a holocaust happens. And that’s what you all think of each other."
She teaches them about the Holocaust, and gives them Anne Frank. And Eva, that girl in the gifset up there? Yeah she identifies HARD with Anne Frank. And she is so terribly upset when she gets to the end and of course Anne dies and goes storming up to Erin and goes, “Why didn’t you tell us she dies? If she dies, then what about me? Huh? What are you saying about that? I can’t believe they got her. That ain’t supposed to happen in the story…that ain’t right!” And another student simply says, “Because it’s true.”
And he, just seconds later, explains why Anne Frank is so important. “She was our age, man. Anne Frank understands our situation. My situation. And that Gies lady, that one that helped hide them…I like her.”
This entire movie was about, as the above commentator said, softening racial divides. Eva, a Latino, “hates” white people because she saw her dad get carted off to jail just because he was in the vicinity when a shooting happened, and because they don’t seem to do anything to help her in her life, and she feels HELPLESS. These kids felt helpless and like they had absolutely no control over their lives. Taking this quote out of context is like taking that one quote from Leviticus that is supposedly about homosexuality out of context: you understand nothing but the quote itself, and not even why it was said. Eva doesn’t hate white people; she hates what some of them do…the cops, specifically. That quote is also taken from the very beginning of the movie and she develops quite a lot throughout the movie (I adore her character arc).
Also it was based on a true story, and Erin Gruwell is a real person, if anyone’s interested. She’s the founder of the Freedom Writers Foundation.
I really wish tumblr assholes would stop taking great commentary out of context for their racist SJW fuckery. The comments above were excellent.
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
This is my favorite post. This is It. Right here
Contrarian point raised here: http://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/79271809624/velvetqueer-uhmwillowsomething
I always thought that ‘don’t be a pussy’ referred to pussy cat rather than female genitalia? You might also hear ‘don’t be a scaredy cat’.
The word ‘pussy’ was used as a term of endearment towards a girl or woman from the 16th century and was also used for effeminate men. [X][X] So given the link people make that effeminate men are automatically ‘not real men’ and a real man would never be scared, this might make a little more sense.
One small point though - OP is saying we should say ‘don’t be a man’s ego’ instead because a mans ego is of course automatically fragile. (Eye rolling ahoy). However this would not make any sense since ‘don’t be a pussy’ refers to someone who is cowardly and might be scared of taking on a task. That does not necessarily mean they are fragile or unable to take on the task, just that they are apprehensive about it. Therefore OP’s example does not work at all, regardless of the etymology of ‘pussy’ in this context.
