argument-lost

one time i remember i was having an argument over the phone and i got so angry at what they were saying that i blacked out for a bit and when i came to i couldn’t remember what we were talking about straight away so i lost the argument im still mad about it

What the signs would do if they had a time machine

Aries: Too afraid to see what awaits them in the future, they would go back in time and become a Greaser probably. 

Taurus: Probably wouldn’t use a time machine because they’d be afraid to mess things up. 

Gemini: They would go back in time to win that argument they lost once.

Cancer: They would go to the future, they would want to see the happiness that awaits them, and the family they’ve made. 

Leo: Into the future, they would want to know who they marry, and how many kids they end up having.

Virgo: They would go back in time to fix the mistakes they might’ve made years ago. 

Libra: They would go back and buy the shirt that they couldn’t decide if they really wanted or not but now they want it. 

Scorpio: Back in time, they would want to undo something they regret. 

Sagittarius: Would go back and hope that they could ride the dinosaurs.  

Capricorn: They would go to the future so they can see how successful they turned out to be.

Aquarius: They would travel to the future in hopes that humanity would have discovered aliens by then. 

Pisces: They would go to the future, they want to see how the world and it’s people turn out.

Imagine one lost boy argumenting that you like him, and Peter replies with...

“Well, here’s my point of view.” He said, not knowing you stood in ear-reach. “Y/N, chooses for herself, and unless she has said that she likes you, she doesn’t. For a fact, she has been in my tent at night… and I don’t know… the rest is private.” The lost boys all gawped while Peter just smirked. “I suggest you get back to work.” He grinned in triumph and you stepped out of the clearing with a smile.

bedtime story:

“do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
forever.

there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.

but you will never be
and have never been
“too much.””

Things haters should remember

1- name calling to fans in a fandom automatically invalidates your argument. It’s a proven study on behavioral science.
If you cannot express yourself without calling names it means you already lost the argument.
It means you abandoned logic in favor of exaggerated expression of your own feelings and not fact. ( haven’t you ever watched a political debate?

People who name call are using dishonest tactics to try and win an argument. It means you did not appropriately research your topic but on going on your own beliefs and not fact. ( which is fine of course, but call it what it really is people. I mean I hate CS with the passion of a thousand burning stars. I don’t need to come up with reasons to validate my hate, I just do. Simple as that, just call it what it really is)

Which leads to part 2.. Research.

90% of Wikipedia entries are inaccurate. (CBSNEWS) (DAILYMAIL) (CANCER.ORG) (PEW RESEARCH CENTER) (NCCIH.GOV)
Most medical/health related advice on the Internet is over simplified to get across to more people. To get an accurate diagnosis, opinion, etc you’d in real life consult a professional face to face.

So if you are getting your sole source of “proof” for your argument (the one you already lost by name calling) from the Internet there is a high probability you are wrong.

If you are a “professional ” in that field of expertise I highly doubt you’d waste your time evaluating a fictional tv character, Esp when you would only be able to give a simple diagnosis not based on fact. And if you are a professional that would do this then please let me know your practice because I’d never want to be diagnosed by someone who takes a flippant look at a true issue.

A true professional knows that for any diagnosis whether health. Psychological, etc you need to be involved with that person(s) for some time before you can label things. And then at what degree? Not all cancers are the same, as is any medical or psychological issue. And with being involved with that person a professional would look to see if the criteria has been met before they’d call it abuse. Stockholm (which by the way, most haters have that completely wrong. Look up the true meaning, not Wikipedia, or a ransom medical sit. SS… it has nothing to do with falling in love with your captor.)

Even with your misinformation of facts that you “researched” on the Internet, Rumbelle has not even met the criteria for any of the above.

Now that the record is straight on that I have a suggestion.
The next time you want to prove your argument..
Don’t name call the fans in the fandom.
Do real (key word..real) research or just own it and admit it’s biased hate
Use your critical thinking skills.
And if you don’t have any then go back to topic #1.

One thing that is tough for people to do is separate their own bias from fact.
You cannot win an argument or win a person over if you resort to exaggerated emotional expression to prove and validate your opinion.
You cannot use exaggerated emotional expression to invalidate or disprove an opinion you don’t agree with. It just makes you look like an ass.

Dignity is, by definition, a two-way street. You can consider yourself worthy of honor or respect, as Oxford defines it, all you wish. But if institutional discrimination deprives you of such basic human rights as health care, education, and the right to marry whomever you love, honor and respect is not afforded you. Sometimes, in the course of history, states and people need to be bound by law to respect you. Relying upon human nature, or the Founders’ supposed intentions is ridiculous when you consider yesteryear. 

Thomas, having lost the argument over marriage equality, chose to offer a pernicious, unsympathetic dissent that gives short shrift to the forces of discrimination and subjugation legalized by government while further emboldening his self mythology, this legendary story he keeps feeding us. Thomas would have you believe that because he himself could survive the indignities forced upon him by Jim Crow—a system of legal discrimination that eventually came to be made illegal, after a variety of Supreme Court decisions very much like today’s ruling—and that somehow, others should be able to endure something similar without the benefit of the very legal recourse that he can deliver from his perch. Using himself as the basis for a legal argument is asinine. Doing so in the service of discrimination is inexcusable.

Lmao okay but when you resort to calling someone a dimwit and a dolt and a moron in an argument you have lost all of your credibility and shown just how childish you are.

Seriously, to hell with you if you think Louis’ shirt tonight wasn’t a blatant statement. To hell with you if you don’t think that boy talks through his t-shirt choices ALL OF THE GODDAMN TIME. I’m not even going to argue it anymore because it’s a completely lost argument at this point, there’s literally nothing to debate. We’ve seen rainbow shirts and shirts with “Love Will Tear Us Apart”… but you cannot tell me for one minute that those boys don’t see what goes on via social media. (Although plenty of people like to say they’re aware and unaware as it becomes convenient for them). 

For Louis to wear a shirt that says “The Future Is Now” is not only a statement, it’s a fucking punch to the face exclamation. This is happening, whether people like it or not. So I’m done having the “does it mean anything” discussion. I’m done having the “they don’t know about your tumblrs/stop posting everything on social media for the boys to see” discussion. I’m just done.

My best wishes and hopes lie with Harry and Louis as they make this journey. May they continue to move forward confidently in the direction of their dreams.
