how can one human being be so dumb

anonymous asked:

If the gods don't have DNA (which is the explanation as to why its not gross for demigods to date each other despite being related) how come their kids resemble them and inherhit their physical traits? Now I don't know much about biology so sorry if I'm being dumb. This question has plagued me since the first series came out

The same way Apollo can have kids with a guy, the same way Athena’s kids are born from her head. The same way Sally meet Poseidon for just one summer and Percy was born in summer. The same way Zeus and Hera are siblings. 

You can blame it on the fact they are gods and nature rules don’t apply to them the same way it does to humans.

Sky High is such an underrated movie like oh my god. There’s Layla, the main protagonist’s bestfriend, that always corrects people about their idea that a superhero must always be a guy. “When your hero asks for a crossbow, you hand it to him” “OR HER!”. She keeps on saying that she’s not into labels, and that the labelling concept is fucking dumb because people are not categories, they’re human beings. Then they pretty much spend the whole movie saying how high school can be a damaging place for kids that don’t have the guts to speak up, which is so true. And then there’s the main vilain, WHO’S A WOMAN. And it’s so perfect because literally NO ONE even thinks for one second that it could be her. And then of course it’s filled with with heteronormativity but I think that they took a great step back there in 2005. Watch it if you haven’t aready???

....Jackson dieting.....

I don’t like it. I don’t think he needs it. I don’t understand why he is doing it. Jackson Wang the king of my heart, has from the start even pre-debut looked so handsome just the way he was. Although i understand what it’s like to be self conscious I don’t know why he is. He is a beautiful human inside and out. I think he just needs to be slapped in the face with this fact. I want to hug him and tell him everyday as he is waking up YOU’RE AMAZING! YOU ARE HANDSOME! YOU DESERVE THE WORLD! YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH!! JACKSON WANG YOU HAVE TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND YOU AREN’T NOW OR HAVE EVER BEEN UGLY! From head to toe you’re a perfect specimen. Your hair, your eyes, your nose (the cutest nose ever), your smile that lights the world, your yummy lips that any one would be lucky to kiss,your arms that prove your strong, your abdominal area that’s just nice to look at, your legs that prove you were a fencer such a graceful one in fact, your feet that have your toes lol what cute feet. HE IS AMAZING AND DESERVES TO HEAR ALL THOSE THINGS HE NEEDS TO KNOW. IT FILLS ME WITH SADNESS THAT MY BABY DOESN’T UNDERSTAND, CAN’T SEE IT.

  • Neptune: I'm not sure how people can be racist to faunus. Well, at least racist to you, Sun. I mean, biologically, all humans have a tail in the embryonic stage similar to what you have so what is even the point of making fun of your tail if humans actually have one too?
  • Sun: ...What- Only YOU could figure this out, quit being a nerd!
We’re young and dumb, but isn’t that part of growing up? You have to make some really stupid choices to learn how to make the great ones. I feel like everyone is at least a little bit young and dumb at heart. I’ve made some stupid choices on things like who my friends are and who I’ve dated, but it’s helped me become who I am today. And some of those mistakes have led to my heart being broken into little pieces, but guess what? Humans are very resilient beings, and we can survive a lot. So you’ll make mistakes, and have your bad times, but it will get better.

Energy Implants and How to Remove Them

The healing of humanity

Increasingly people within spiritual circles are becoming aware of, and speaking out about, “energetic implants” in our energy fields. Working with energy implants is indeed something we do during the Openhand course and one-on-one work.

Implants are prevalent within most, if not all, human beings. They’ve been used as a tool by Opposing Consciousness in the ‘dumbing-down’ of humanity. It’s a subject that needs to be elevated into the group consciousness more generally if we are to catalyse and accelerate our further evolution, that we can heal humanity.

So what are energetic implants? How do they work? Where did they come from? and most importantly of all, how do we remove them?

I'm glad someone else thinks callout culture is too extreme and kind of awful. Anytime I've said that it's really toxic I get people saying things like oh so you don't want people to care about xyz and I'm like?? I never said that,, like yeah call people out for their shitty behavior but when someone makes one small mistake and they genuinely didn't realize it was wrong how about we don't crucify them. People like to point out others wrongdoing but never point out their own and it bothers me.

I’ve even paused my One Direction video to answer this, bc I want to give it my full attention and I cannot do that with Harry Styles in my peripheral vision. Also this is gonna be long. I didn’t pause the boys to half ass this answer.

Anyway, I don’t necessarily think callout culture in itself is a bad thing, i think it’s really important to identify things that are genuinely a problem and let people know why. That’s how we learn and grow as people. The problem with it, particularly on this website, is the extreme to which people take it. 

What callout culture should be is if Person A makes a comment that is kinda Yikes™, Person B steps up and says “sorry, but you said this thing, and i just wanted to let you know it’s kinda Yikes™ for these reasons.” For example, I made a post at like 4.30am about B/uckynat in the MCU and how i can’t see it bc like my blog title says, I am v much an advocate for Gay!Bucky in the MCU. Anyway, I tagged that post with “no offence but ur ship is non-existent in the MCU and Bucky likes dick” and then I went to bed and didn’t think anything else of it. Then when I woke up I had a message that was like “Sorry I just wanted to let you know that equating being gay to liking dick is kinda Yikes™ bc it ignores trans men” and I was like “Shit sorry, I tagged it at like 4.30am i didn’t even think, sorry, I’ll change it to Bucky likes men” and then that was that and we all moved on with our lives. 

However, more often, what we actually get is Person A makes a comment that is kinda Yikes™, Person B is like “Wow why would you say that it’s so Yikes™, what an asshole, consider yourself blocked” and then Person B makes a post like “Just to let you all know that Person A is Super Yikes™ and you should all block and unfollow them” and then Person C and Person D see and they’re like “wow that’s awful what a shitty person” - as if one single comment is enough to condemn a person. 

And that’s made worse when they’re talking about someone in the public eye. Celebrity A makes a comment without being aware of it being a problematic thing to do, and then they have hundreds of People B’s seeing it and making posts like “Celebrity A said this one thing 4 years ago, they’re an awful person, a shitty human being, they’re cancelled.” and then Person C steps in and says “But, Celebrity A has spent the last 4 years displaying behaviours that show they have educated themselves and done better and are trying to make a difference? Maybe we should forgive the poorly informed comment they made once and perhaps judge the strength of their character on the good things they’ve done since?” and then Person B shows up again like “Oh so you think its okay to say things that are so Yikes™, wow Celebrity A is an asshole and so are you Person C” 

And that is more of a problem than what they’re trying to callout. No one is going to learn or want to learn, if there are so many people that behave like it doesn’t matter what you do, a mistake you made years ago is what you will forever be judged by. Every single one of us says dumb shit. Every single one of us can do better. Because we are human beings, and we make mistakes and we fuck up and we falter. But our individual mistakes aren’t what show the people that we are, it’s how we better ourselves and how we improve.

And saying one or two things that are Yikes™ doesn’t make you a bad person. It means you are uneducated in that area and need to be taught a little more. Or it means you simply made a mistake and weren’t thinking properly and needed someone to point it out so you could fix it. Yes there are people that deserve to be called out as being continuously gross and not learning from the shit they do (I’m talking J/ennifer Lawrence, A/my Schumer, J/ohnny Depp etc) and that’s fair enough, bc they keep showing that they don’t care enough to do better, they show themselves time and time again to be of poor character. 

But like, I see it on my posts about Chris Evans all the time. He spends a lot of his time educating himself on social and political issues and trying to do better and make a difference with his privilege and people will bring up something he said in an interview like 7 years ago as a reason why he’s an asshole? Despite him showing time and time again that he’s a good dude trying to do good?

Would you want to be judged for who you were 7 years ago? Or would you like to think that you’d grown and developed and bettered yourself in the last 7 years and you were a different person now than you were then? The problem with this website is that a lot of the time they don’t think about that, it’s all just done in extremes and that’s the wrong way to go about doing anything honestly.

Hello! I really need your help here. I am very frustrated about one thing- How in the hell can people think allowing homosexuality is going to lead to legalization of other inhumane behaviors such as incest or child molestation etc? Their theory is if everyone has right to love, why does love between human and animals, or legal adults and minors are treated as crime unlike same sex relationship. It is so dumb that I can't come up with logical defense to that. Any suggestion to shut them off?

The slippery slope is a logical fallacy, a “fallacy” being defined as “faulty reasoning; a misleading or unsound argument.” It’s reasoning that sounds like it makes sense, but it doesn’t. In a same-sex marriage, two loving adults voluntarily pledge their love and devotion to each other, just like with an opposite sex marriage. And there’s the line, which still excludes incest, polygamy, bestiality, and so on. And let’s also not forget that marriage has been redefined plenty of times, lest we forget the days when it was essentially a property agreement between the groom and the father of the bride. So tell them to relax and stop spewing nonsense, because they’re only fooling themselves with that non-logic.

anonymous asked:

any advice on how i can be more outspoken?

Well, I think the place to start is why you’re afraid to speak out. Are you afraid that people aren’t going to like what you have to say? Do you feel like you have nothing to contribute? I think a lot of people feel like they could say something, but it’s not a staggering work of brilliance and insight, so why bother?

If that last one, I can tell you that literally everyone—everyone, every human being that has ever lived on the planet earth ever, from the minute some Homo habilis grunted the first syllable—has said something dumb. They were rude, or incorrect; they said wrong thing at the wrong time, or had a great idea they couldn’t quite put into words so it came out sounding like a garbled mess. They were stuck on an earlier part of the conversation, or didn’t have all the information, or were focused on themselves, or were flustered and defensive, or weren’t understanding you, or or or—

Trust me, the ways to sound like a dumbass are limitless. But I’m gonna let you in on a secret, anon:

You have the world’s permission to say idiotic stuff. Or wrong stuff! Or badly-timed stuff! Or badly-executed stuff! I have sat through whole meetings at large, important companies where people did nothing but say idiotic stuff. I personally have had lots of arguments where I passionately defended my side, then changed my mind when I was finished, because that was some idiotic stuff I just spouted.

Giving yourself permission to say idiotic stuff means that every time you open your mouth doesn’t have to be Important and Necessary and Eternal. Sometimes you just say shit.

Now, that doesn’t mean you are excused from the repercussions of saying shit. There are wrong ways to be outspoken too, whole complicated politics of context. Even if you’re working from a place of good intentions and genuine empathy, you can still be wrong, or rude, or hurt someone. The world might give you permission to say idiotic stuff sometimes, but it doesn’t give you a get out of jail free card for it. People might argue with you. People might dislike you for it. You might change your mind. You might not be heard. You’ll probably have to apologize, repeatedly.

But you don’t have to apologize taking up air time, even with the dumb stuff. Trust me, there are times when I shoved my foot so far into my mouth that it left sneaker-prints on my uvula–that’s how wrong I was. But there is a tacit permission the world gives for something as basic to the human condition as “saying the exact wrong thing” so. It’ll be okay. You’ll survive to say the next dumb thing, and the next brilliant one, and all the shades in between.

First, though, you’ve got to open your mouth.

Because 6x19

Rated: 3.9/5

This episode had some great moments, mostly with The Delena shades, Bonnie Bennett, and Bamon.
Can I just say I’m glad Caroline is back to her old self, she’s not in next weeks episode (bless tbh). I really was hoping Caroline would have be more badass without her humanity lord that wasn’t the case. I wasn’t feeling No humaity Caroline I know a lot of us wasn’t it. I’m glad to be getting old Caroline back, she returns in 6x21 trying make amends with everyone. I did like her shading the fuck out of  Dustlena and Elena so that was a plus.

Damon, Damon, Damon, this dude is so damn sad; He really said Human Elena would pick Stefan over him. I understand Damon wants someone to love him, I know he needs, but this ain’t the one man. He just so damn insecure in his relationship with Elena. I know it must hurt to have Katherine and now his Mother tossing him aside like trash but I really need Damon to start loving himself soon. The only person to put him first is Bonnie and he keeps hurting her and being selfish. I mean did you see her face when she saw him and he brought her coffee, she was so lit. This is little bastard had to fuck it up again, by telling her about the Lily getting the acendent and Bonnie thinks he doesn’t care about her.

And let me tell you this Bonnie storyline this season has been consistant as fuck. I know a lot of us Bonnie stans thought Plec was playing when she said
Bonnie would start putting herself first, but the writers are coming through with this storyline. It makes sense of course, now their lead is leaving they’d
bump up Bonnie, the Gilbert family is the reason why she’s so selfless, she always putting them first, now with both of them gone there’s no need for this old Bonnie. We’re getting a new Bonnie Bennett, one that loves herself and wants better for herself, this storyline came at a great time.

But that last Bamon scene fucked me up though,

Bonnie was like, I know you, we spent 4 months together, we been through hell and back. That really got to me because I love that we’re getting Bamon a lot
more from Bonnie’s point of views lately. To hear her talk to him like she really does know him, better than Elena, his mother and probably even Stefan. I just
I wasn’t ready for all this, and the thing is Damon was being selfless when he didn’t take the ascendant from Bonnie to give to Lily so he could get the cure back. But like Bonnie said, Damon if he really wanted he should have given the cure to Elena weeks ago. He’s always selfish with Elena, I think the only time we’ll see him put Elena first and not add himself into the equation is in the finale, whatever hard choice he has to make it will be the most selfless thing he can do
for Elena. I am glad he didn’t cross that line with Bonnie and made it seem like Elena’s happiness was more important than her safety.

But Can I give a shout out to Mama Salvatore who was not fucking with Damon, Lily was like I am not here for the Delena Diaries, she gave Elena that cure and
expose Damon for the trash he is (sorry babe I love you but you’re acting dumb) See I could love Lily, maybe next season after this whole ish with her and her
family is cleared up. I see her and I see Bonnie, and I’m like these two could keep Damon Salvatore in check, neither one of them is here for his shit. I love it!

My prediction for 6x20… I heard Stefan yelling don’t take the cure, I wonder how he’d reaction to losing Damon like this. One of the reasons why I doubt
we’d ever get a human Damon is because of Stefan, I just don’t see Damon leaving Stefan behind like that for any girl. Bonnie is gonna bring up some concerns about delena being human together, probably tell Elena it’s a dumb idea, that Damon is only doing this so he can stay with her and that it isn’t really what he wants I’m trying to guess if Elena is taking the cure in 6x20 before the wedding in 6x21. Enzo and Lily will get closer and then by next season Enzo will be Stefan and Damon new Daddy :) I like that tbh
