21st century people

2

“In the 21st century, people awoke from the American dream. Years of consumption lead to shortages of every major resource. The entire world unraveled. Peace became a distant memory. It is now the year 2077. We stand on the brink of total war, and I am afraid. For myself, for my wife, for my infant son - because if my time in the army taught me one thing: it’s that war, war never changes.”

Of course I’m upset! And if you don’t mind, maybe you can explain one little thing to me. Why is it even news? Who gives a fuck who I fuck?! This is the 21st Century people. GET OVER IT!

anonymous asked:

I think it's so unnecessary to come out these days I mean we are in the 21st century. The people should realize that it's normal that people can be in a relationship with the same gender it's not a big deal. Personally I wouldn't come out because if I would have a girlfriend in the future, I would just say it in a talk by the way and that would it be. I mean it's all in all my life and i can share it with who i love. I told you that because I think that you would understand me :D

I agree with you. Coming out is just a painful way of telling people you’re a bit different than them. The most difficult part is you have to do it every single time when faced with different people. I never came out to my colleagues when I started working. They just learned I have a gf when asked if I’m in a relationship. However, I had to come out to my old friends. I knew they feel I’m not entirely heterosexual so to set the record straight, I had to tell them. Some of them are not very accepting of it so it wasn’t easy. I never liked how some of it turned out so I don’t want to do the coming out thing anymore…

DEAR TUMBLR

WHY WE STILL NEED TO WORRY ABOUT ASK LIMITS??

WHY U GUYS DO THAT???

WE NEED TO SEND MORE STUFF TO PEOPLE

ONE HOUR LOOKS LIKE FOREVER

IS THIS CAUSE OF THE LAGS??

IS IT CAUSE WE NEED LIMITS??

IS IT ABOUT SOCIAL LIFE??

WE LOVE U GUYS BUT PLEASE HELP

ITS THE 21st CENTURY PEOPLE…

its sad
how even in the 21st century
people are still having this view
in their heads
that a woman’s goal/end
should be marriage, raising kids and having a family
why can’t woman be successful, travel the world
make contributions to society
other than just having kids
why can’t we be respected for the choices we make
why are we still being silenced by men,
it’s either our father’s, our brother’s or our son’s
I defy every rule that this society has imposed on me as a woman
practising my religion has got nothing to do with being married
or having a voice
and yes, i have always had the fire burning
and whoever question’s
my worth as a woman and my choices in life
I have only one thing to say
MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS
—  ANAS ROSE

“In the 21st century,
people have everything
what they want so easily,
and why are they more
and more  so unhappy?” -
“… because they are more
and more away from God
That’s why.”

Modern Heroes: A Social Experiment

Hearing the word “heroes”, your average Indonesian might conjure the mental image of heroes of past fighting for Indonesia’s independence: passionate, courageous, ingenious, but long gone. It’s easier to imagine them that way when the roads your average Indonesian frequently took are named after these revolutionaries and their faces are featured in the Indonesian Rupiah.

It takes more effort to associate heroes as ordinary, 21st century people possessing the same passion, courage, and ingenuity: who do inspirational works in forms other than serving on the battlefields. Especially those whose field of service might be more unconventional and/or whose services were not put in much spotlight. It takes harder time to acknowledge that heroes exist right now, in 21st century Indonesia.

In this social experiment, we ask various young Indonesians: relatively as young as the participants of the 1928 Kongres Pemuda Kedua (Second Youth Congress) who coined the Sumpah Pemuda (Youth Pledge) and as young as the modern heroes that are making their marks in the development of Indonesia. Will they be able to recognize them as easily as recognizing well-known celebrity?

Kindly help like and share this video in all of your social media handles! This video is my college project and I will be graded by how viral this video is (weird rules asdjfkl;), so it’s really important for you to watch, like and share even if you don’t understand Indonesian. Every help counts, really! Thank you so much for helping!

Let me sum up the European response to kosher shechita:

We love Jews.  We want Jews to feel at home.

What?  You say you want kosher food?  But that’s ridiculous.  We don’t do things that way here.  If you live here, you must drop your stupid traditions that nobody really needs.  We don’t eat kosher food, so neither should you.

Why are you accusing us of antisemitism?  We don’t hate you.  We just want you to drop your backward traditions and join the 21st century like us civilized people.  

God, Jews are so annoying, yelling ‘antisemitism’ about everything.  We’re not antisemitic at all, we just care about animals.  If those Jews would just stop insisting on being so Jewish, we wouldn’t have any problems with them.  Why can’t they just be, you know, more like normal people?  That isn’t asking too much, is it?

Hey, where are you going?  This is your home.  Europe won’t be the same without you!
