basically-bullshit

If you’re saying that skinny people are not allowed to cosplay Rose Quartz

then you’re also basically saying that:

  • black people aren’t allowed to cosplay white characters
  • white people aren’t allowed to cosplay black characters
  • men aren’t allowed to cosplay female characters
  • women aren’t allowed to cosplay male characters
  • tall people aren’t allowed to cosplay Levi Ackerman

and that equals to the fact that you’re basically talking bullshit. 

You have no right to tell people who they can or cannot cosplay. 

Cosplaying is about FUN. 

Because I always like to commemorate when I find a non-tumblr analytical piece that seems to understand the books.  And, while not part of the main article, this comment is one of the few that I’ve seen that really groks an important aspect of what Suzanne Collins has done with the narration.

One of the things I found most interesting about the Hunger Games trilogy was that the writing style had such a flat affect.  It seemed simple “easy reading” kind of writing at first, but going on I realized how perfectly matched it was to the affect of Katniss as a trauma survivor.

  • White people:lol at black people with their weaves and twerking and ghetto black names!!!!
  • White people:Lol look at Indian girls with those dumb red dots on their foreheads and lol at Hinduism and its weird gods!!!!
  • White people:Lol look at Native American culture that still exists today and lol at their feathers and headdresses!!!!
  • White people:Lol at Muslims and their ugly turbans and hijabs!!!!
  • White people:Lol at all these Asian countries ching chong!!! Lol Japanese, Korean, and Chinese culture are all the exact same!!!
  • White people:Lol at Latinos and their sombreros and mariachi!!!!
  • White people:Lol at all these races and cultures that are all inferior to us!!!!
  • White people:Why are you getting so mad at us we're just trying to have fun smh you're so over sensitive
  • White people:Please stop making fun of us for liking Starbucks not all white people like Starbucks and racial stereotypes can be very hurtful
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.)

you ever think about how humanstuck gamzee would probably hate the beach? how they grew up by the shore, within walking distance of the sea, had to sweep sand off their doorstep every other day because it somehow always managed to reach the house. how gamzee probably got worried during storm seasons because the waves would come so high, come so close to the house, and they were worried that during the night they would sneak in and steal them from their bed. how they listened to rain fall against window glass and waves crash on the shore, and animals come to surface, and there was just so much noise all the time that it felt like there would never truly be silence. how they were left all alone in that house, for so long, sometimes gamzee forgot the sound of their dad’s voice or the taste of food that wasn’t going bad or packaged, and how afraid they were of the waves stealing them, and of storms breaking the windows, and how if they forgot to sweep the sand off the door step maybe they would be stuck inside forever, inside this terrifying house by the terrifying sea.

you ever think about how years later, gamzee hasn’t visited that house once, but still carries bits and pieces of the beach and sea with them, no matter how much they don’t want to. how they smell salt water and think of being lonely and scared, how they hear rain hitting glass and think about the third night that their dad hasn’t come back home and how they don’t know how to work the microwave yet so all the food they’ve been eating has been cold, how they can’t look at sea shells without thinking of waves taking them from their bed, and not knowing how they’d feel about that. how one day they know a friend will ask, “want to go to the beach?” and they’ll say yes, because they always do if it’ll make someone happy, but the whole day they wouldn’t be able to look out at the sea and feel like a little kid again, wondering if maybe the waves will steal them and never let them go, even after they’ve tried to escape their reach.

because i think about it a lot and it makes me cry thank u for joining me 

i feel like a lot of people dont believe me when i say I spent my early teens in some really fucked up corners of the internet and honestly sometimes I forget too because I’m surround by many different, good people now and I’m a better, more independent person who can actually think for myself

But yeah ive seen some shit

anonymous asked:

"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.
