anonymous asked:

There are rumors about BC in Italy. Do you know something?

Yes I do know something! 

Here’s a random list of things I know:

  • Liquid tungsten is so hot, if you dropped it into a lava flow, the lava would freeze the tungsten.
  • Beleriand was the region of north-western Middle-earth during the First Age.
  •  In 1986, Apple launched a clothing line.
  • The Battle of Agincourt took place in 1415.
  • Übersampling is a new video game technique (Seen in The Witcher 2: The Wild Hunt) where they render your screen in 4k and then downsize it to your preferred screen resolution, creating an amazingly smooth anti-aliasing effect (while also cutting your frame rate in half).
  • Breaking Bad has an episode that has an average 10.0 out of 10.0 rating on IMDB. More than 50000 users reviewed this episode.

 

Oh my god, shut the fuck up.

Miley’s just as bad, if not worse, than Bieber. She’s mocked mentally ill people (specifically Sinead O'Connor, who expressed actual concern for her, and Amanda Bynes, who, yes, did trash talk her, but did so months before Miley used her to mock O'Connor - also, I’m pretty sure Miley herself once said to “forget the haters”, so…) and reduced black culture to drugs, partying, and twerking poorly, which I would argue are much more “bad teen” culture than related to any particular race.

The difference I see between Bieber and Miley is that Bieber doesn’t make himself out to be a rode model (these days, anyway). Miley’s documentary was all about how she’s making some grand artistic statement and freeing herself from having her sexuality dictated by men or whatever the fuck she was going on about and Tumblr goes all gaga for her brand of “feminism”. And then she turns around and does shit like mock the mentally ill (specifically two WOMEN, so ~feminism~ my ass), uses black women as props in her videos, reduces black culture to partying (if some white girl posted a picture of MLK or another black icon with #ratchet or #thuglyfe on it y'all would have a goddamn fit), etc. And y'all complain about Femen. Pfft. I get you want to support a woman owning her sexuality, but there’s literally a thousand other pop girls who own theirs without all of Miley’s shit (check out Christina Aguilera’s classic “Can’t Hold Us Down” for some actual feminism).

Also, while on the subject of Bieber, let’s discuss why y'all hate him and not, say, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mick Jagger, Martin Freeman, Steven Tyler, Michael Fassbender, etc. Yeah, Bieber’s said some shitty things, but so have Cumberbatch and Freeman but Tumblr loves them (and, yes, I do realize that there are actually people who genuinely care about calling out douchebags and aren’t hypocritical about it, but I’ve seen enough people reblog posts saying “This is why feminism/discussions of racism/classism/homophobia are important~” and then reblog Sherlock a second later to know that non-hypocritical people are in the minority). Fassbender, Jagger, Tyler, John Lennon, Charlie Sheen, Jimmy Page, Bobby Brown, James Brown, Sean Penn, etc. have all beaten or done terrible things to women (Tyler even forced a sixteen-year-old to have an abortion, while Page kidnapped a minor and kept her for several years) and y'all ain’t got shit to say about them? Do y'all boycott the X-Men movies, in which Fassbender currently stars? Doubt it (he was also recently in 12 Years A Slave, which many on here praised). People reblog pro-peace things with Lennon’s picture included alongside images of MLK and JFK like Lennon didn’t beat his wife and child and wasn’t an anti-semite. Don’t complain about a douchey teenage boy when the people I’ve listed are either A) worshiped on here (Cumberbatch, Freeman, Fassbender) or B) considered legends by the general public (and you should be educating the masses, since y'all always try to do that with privilege and plenty of other social justice concepts). Go all the way or don’t bother trying.

tl;dr stop with the Miley Cyrus worship because she’s just as awful as Bieber, and either stop going on and on about Bieber, who has yet to actually commit a crime worse than being a colossal pisswad, or go after Tumblr’s faves and the general public’s “legends” just as hard, because they’re just as bad, and often worse.
