basically-bullshit

Growing up means realizing you don’t know fucking shit about anything.

That is a really powerful tweet.

What will happen if SOPA passes later today.

Basically, SOPA is an act that will be passed to ‘stop internet piracy.' 

This law will allow not only the Government to control what is to be censored on the internet, but it will also allow Corporations to do the same.

So, basically it’ll be like the situation in China, but maybe even worse. Anything you read on the internet will have gone through a filter. That means any news you watch will be only what the people controlling the filters, in the case the Government, want you to know. The Government fucks up in Foreign Affairs? You won’t hear about it. We invade a foreign nation? Unless someone you know was sent there, you’ll have no idea. It puts a HUGE block between what goes on in the world and what we know. This is a really, really fucking bad thing. It keeps people kind of dumbed down.

Also, Corporations can choose what to censor. So, if a private website decides that they don’t like what Wal-Mart is doing as of late, about how they treat employees and how they are wrecking the economy, Wal-Mart could decide to take action against that website, and have it DDOS-ed, or just shut down entirely.

As for social networking, it’d be done. Social Networking has caused more problems to the Government than anything else. Twitter was actually one of the best ways to stay in communication during the protests in both Egypt and Libya. Companies had to turn off cell phone reception to all it’s customers to ensure people couldn’t electronically document what was going on in these protests. Social Networking unites people, and makes them angry. These are the two things that the Government fears most, other than intelligence.

Reddit, and sites like it, would be done, for a lot of reasons. It’s a great source of first hand news, and again, it keeps people up to date, keeps them informed, unites them, and makes them angry. That is more than enough reason to shut down Reddit. Also, if some new kid shows up on Reddit, and posts any link to any torrent ever, that gives the Government cause under this bill to shut down reddit entirely. Even if it’s one link that’s downvoted to oblivion.

There’s a lot more to it, but with this and the detainment bill, things have gotten incredibly bad. I very seriously may decide to live abroad after this bill is passed. 

Not sure if this made a lot of sense. I’m a lil distracted.

If you get the chance, watch the debate rightttt here:  http://www.keepthewebopen.com/sopa 

This really, really sucks.

(Of course, there is a lot more to it, and none of it is good.)

hi, do you know the difference between bi and pan ??

pan is all about the ~gender~ of the person which is basically bullshit bc sexuality is based on biological sex, not gender. pansexual people are bisexual. there are only 2 sexes, so the ~genders~ will always be covered under bisexuality.

"Does he know that people are worried rn" lmao about what?

uhhhhhh idk what you see on your dash or who you follow, but for the past week people are overthinking about stupid shit like bts disbanding since bighit is releasing a new boy group and other things since it’s makbang week about how they haven’t won, aren’t considered a hip hop group, etc.

“straight white boys” this, and “annoying white girls” that.

i’m just. i’m done. ENOUGH. associating any type of race with any type of negativity is bullshit on every level.

“nothing is scarier than a drunk straight white male”

really? REALLY? because ONLY straight white males have the capability of being nasty, angry drunks. okay.

“don’t take a white girl’s Starbucks away!!!!”

shut the fuck UP already.

do not tell me that prejudice is okay towards them because there are white males/females that are prejudiced towards others. that just makes you as messed up as whatever prejudiced assholes you’re referring to in the first place.

“you’re just upset because you’re white!!! now you know how it feels.” first of all, i’m not white, my mother is hispanic and my dad is irish. so i deal with my own fair share of bullshit because i’m mixed. “you can’t refer to yourself as hispanic because you don’t look it, therefore you don’t have to put up with judgments that other ‘more obvious-looking’ hispanics do” “don’t call yourself white!!!! you’re negating your dominican heritage.”

but we won’t get into that.

but yes?? obviously it does bug me to be discriminated against. just as much as it bothers you. you don’t like it. and i don’t like it. so no, i will not accept your bullshit towards me. you don’t need to demean someone just to show them how much it hurts you to be disrespected in such a way; especially if that person never fucking caused anyone any harm.

UGH.

  • <p dir="ltr">me: so you're telling me I'm gay if I like songs by female pop artists, but I'm still gay if I like songs from male pop artists?<br>
  • society:yes.<br>
  • me:OK well what can I listen to?<br>
  • society:ghetto rap music.<br>
  • me:um no thanks, anything else?<br>
  • society:hardcore rock music.<br>
  • me:why not just regular rock music?<br>
  • society:only if you want to be less manly.<br>
  • me:are you fucking kidding me.</p>
basically copying bullshit here thanks bye

i h8 this. it’s really short and im not even gonna proofread. idk i have this song stuck in my head and there’s a lot of Locus with long hair in this fandom and I really love it even though originally pictured them bald and im disgustingly alloromantic and needed to write something gooey and sad. “but vina this doesn’t fit with what canon told us” i don’t care.

the name for Locus comes from trashbabylocus

       The blond DARES to lean against the doorway, his fingers prodding
        the closest thing to him on the shelf. He turned the corners of his 
        mouth down, giving off that he was IMPRESSED by… really nothing.
        Deciding to elaborate, he faces the witch in the room with heightened
        eyebrows and a smile edging  on his lips.

They’re equally matched! Who will win?!

Don’t mind me, i’m just doing more silly botfight AU doodles

this time, a match announcement poster dealio.

I basically bullshitted the info on the character’s profiles except their height. (hiccup’s and hiro’s birthdays were decided on the release dates of their movies and using their canon ages in reference to the current year. weight i just made up in the spot so its probably innacurate af)

so yeah, that’s all from me for now. 

my friend just sent me a snap of her boyfriend kissing her cheek with the caption “omg oppressed by the patriarchy again!!!!1!!!” and i’d just like to say straight anti-feminists are exhausting
