is better than everyone else

anonymous asked:

Can I just say thank you for going against this person?? They say they don't try to police fandom but every damn post they post boils down to "Scott is better than everyone else and if you don't watch the show for him, you watch it for the wrong reasons" and I'm for my part am very tired of this arrogant person


Look, I think there’s an argument to be made for when the creator’s vision doesn’t line up with the audience vision, but that argument is not “You’re doing it wrong.” That argument is “Hey, things are open to interpretation.” Or even “Hey, if the creator was adamant that this was the message they wanted to get across, and yet they failed to do so, then they should have hired better writers, directors and editors.” 

*stares hard at Jeff Davis* 

Most importantly though, it doesn’t matter. I can go and see Titanic and say “Well, that was a hell of an indictment on the practices of non-unionised ship building in the early 20th century ship building, wasn’t it?” 

And you know what? Maybe I’ve got a fucking point. It might not be a point the creator considered, but that doesn’t make it any less of a valid interpretation. We have things called alternate readings for a reason. 

Canon is not gospel. Well, actually it is. Because even Gospel isn’t gospel. Gospel is the original fan fiction. It was written anonymously, nobody can agree on the canon, and people still fucking fight about the pointless details to this day. 

Watch whatever shows you want. Interpret them however you want. Read and write whatever fan fiction you want. And the deal is that I won’t tell you how you’re doing it wrong, if you extend the same courtesy to me. 

I think I will only accept a lion shuffle if it’s literally everyone ends up with a different lion.

Like, oops, Allura was actually TOTALLY FUCKING WRONG about EVERYONE because she had literally just met them 20 minutes ago.

Black - Lance (sure okay why not let’s give it a shot I’m down to clown, develops leadership qualities, this is reminding me of the pirate captain from Stardust for some reason, ‘the heart of the team’, Will listen to everyone and make the right call (eventually))

Yellow - Keith (Really works with his impulsiveness tbh?, The yellow lion makes him slow down and think b/c he can’t just bolt in, Will pull back and make everyone think twice, Sees the Big Picture better than everyone else on the team, No your family/Allura are not more important than the rest of the entire universe guys)

Green - Hunk (nosy, interested in learning, wants to touch EVERYTHING, will steal and read your diary and go through your files, crazy smart and eager to question)

Red - Pidge (I’m gunna BREAK INTO THE GG and SIT AT YOUR COMPUTER AND READ YOUR FILES then SCREAM AT YOU, openly impulsive and quick to temper, often takes the bullheaded approach, Will do her own thing regardless of what others think)

Blue - Shiro (The one that keeps the group together and calm, Moral support and there to listen, Will encourage you and make you feel like you can do anything)

I AM NOT SETTLING FOR ANYMORE MEDIOCRE PERFORMANCE BULLSHIT ESPECIALLY NOT FROM A MALE ARTIST BEYONCÉ WAS SCREWING HER MAN AND SERVING VOCALS DURING ALL OF FWT!! SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN PREGNANT WITH TWINS WHEN SHE WAS SERVING DURING TIDAL X!! THIS IS THE SECOND TIME SHES STUNTED ON US THAT SHES BEEN PREGNANT AND SHE STILL DID EVERYTHING BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE

The Cons of Your Sun Sign

Aries: You treat everyone around you like shit, you think you are better than everyone else, you are inappropriate in social situations. 

Taurus: You refuse to compromise and do what other people want to do, all you want to do is sit around the house all day and eat, it is like pulling teeth trying to get you to speak. 

Gemini: Everyone in your life is expendable, you are fickle with your emotions, you get people to tell you their most personal information and then you go and tell everyone about it. 

Cancer: You refuse to go out and never want to leave your home, you use your emotions to manipulate people, you cry at the stupidest shit. 

Leo: Your ego is as big as the sun, you constantly talk over everyone else, you throw temper tantrums when you are not getting attention. 

Virgo: You are the most judgmental sign, you think your ideas are better than everyone else’s, you think you are the smartest person in the room. 

Libra: You are bat shit crazy, you are territorial in your relationships, you insult people to their face and make it seem like they are the crazy one who picked the fight when they insult you back. 

Scorpio: You automatically assume the worst in people, you think everyone is trying to sleep with your significant other and go psycho jealous, you’re still plotting your revenge against that kid who stole your toy in the third grade.

Sagittarius: You will insult people to their face, you automatically assume your opinions matter more than everyone else’s, you are one pretentious bitch or bastard.

Capricorn: You are rude to everyone, you are boring as fuck but you think you are sooooooo interesting, when you talk everyone is looking for a way to get out of the conversation with you.

Aquarius: You think you are better than everyone else, you shove your perspective down other people’s throats, you have the worst god-complex of the whole fucking zodiac.

Pisces: You rely heavily on drugs and alcohol, you are the fucking baby that everyone has to take care of at the party because you are always so fucking wasted, you use other people for your own personal gain.

You know what normal healthy people do when they are eating a meal and start to feel full up?

They STOP EATING.

Let’s repeat that; when you start to get full, you PUT THE FORK DOWN.

THAT is the only guaranteed way to lose weight, reduce your calorie intake.

Gluttony is not a disability, and as a physically disabled person myself I resent the implication that having a medical issue is an excuse to give up trying to improve yourself. No matter what problems you may have, you can always do something to lose weight. The first and most important step is REDUCE your Calorie intake; you can still eat what you like, just eat less of it. Moderation is the key.

Oh, but that would mean taking responsibility for yourself and making an effort….it’s so much easier to pretend that it is “genetics” or “conditions” that keep you obese, right fat people?

Or that the only reason people are repulsed by you is they are being brainwashed by “the media”, not the fact that a vast majority of the human beings on this planet find wobbly, cellulite-ridden, stretch-marked flesh hanging out for all to see absolutely revolting. (That’s without mentioning what it says about your character and personality too). If you do not have the will-power to stop gorging yourself YOU are the only person to blame when you are viewed in a negative way.

I have no respect for anyone that has no respect for themselves and THAT is why I will continue to fight fat acceptance.

So, hate me, accuse me of “oppressing the obese”, of being a bigot, of being “ableist” whatever, I could not give a flying fuck. I will not stand idly by while impressionable youngsters are manipulated into committing slow suicide via the use of blatant lies and misinformation, all under the pretense of being encouraged to “love themselves”. I am a parent myself and I will not be silenced. If that hurts some people’s feelings, so be it.

Besides, I would love someone to explain to me how if you really, truly love yourself and your body, why on Earth would you push it to beyond its capabilities by making it cope with extra weight that it is not designed to carry? That doesn’t sound like love, it sounds like abuse…

Studying Habits of Slytherins

- They sit down to do all of their homework with the mindset that they have to get it all done to perfection in order to be better than everyone else in their classes. 

- But then they get distracted with Papa’s Sushiria, and Tumblr, and Wattpad, and Instagram, and everything else. 

- And then they realize that it’s so late that they would rather be in bed. 

- So then they decide that they can do their English homework during lunch, Calculus during Finance, skip French to do AP Human Geography… 

- But then they just decide to finish as much as they can and buckle down to work. 

- Long checklists of work to do for school and everything else so that they feel accomplished as they complete their work. 

- They’re the ones their friends always text when they need a picture of the homework, but they usually end up replying at around two in the morning when their friend has given up hope on passing their classes. 

- Slytherins either have lots of activities and homework and are completely stressed, or have none at all and end up doing bad things in their free time. 

- They like to lay out all of their binders in front of them so that they feel like they’re doing more work than they actually are, for motivation.

what the signs secretly think

Fire signs secretly think they are better than everyone else and should always be the center of attention.

Earth signs secretly think everyone else is incompetent and can’t be trusted to do quality work.

Water signs secretly think they are martyrs, and people should be eternally grateful for their selfless sacrifices *wipes tear* .

Air signs secretly think they are the smartest person in the room and everyone else is narrow-minded, an irrational cry-baby, or flat out moronic.

I really do believe that at least part of the problem of people distrusting science has to do with how we as scientists portray ourselves.

We have actively created a system where we derive authority from being seen as better/smarter/more competent than everyone else and then when people ask why they should trust us we respond with a very condescending version of ‘because SCIENCE IS FACT’ or something along those lines.

Like, consider how that would feel from the outside? Here are a small group of people who you have never met/interacted with who sequester themselves in impenetrable ~elite institutions that you can’t access and don’t feel party to who then tell you that what they say is fact because they’re smarter and better educated than you. And if you ever try to question them (no matter how reasonable your objections may be/seem to you) they condescendingly pat you on the head and say something like ‘don’t worry we know better. you can’t possibly understand what we do.’

Why the hell would you trust them? 

No one likes being told that they’re not smart enough to understand something, and no one likes feeling excluded from something they’ve essentially been asked to accept sight unseen. 

I don’t really have a solution to this, except some vague notion about working harder to portray scientists as people working a job, rather than geniuses who are above it all. 

And like trying harder to understand where people are coming from when they question science. And remembering that being better educated than most doesn’t make us smarter than most. It just makes us better trained in certain types of thinking.

I just think we need to keep in mind what we are asking of people. Which is to put a whole hell of a lot of faith in us.

I’d like to make a public announcement on this issue, because right now it’s a bit out of hand and it’s making me sick. 

BTS, EXO, and GOT7;

They are all friends, they get along, and they respect each other as humans and artist. So why is it that their fans have to start fan wars? 

I don’t care that EXO is beating BTS on the MAMA awards, I don’t care that GOT7 surpassed BTS on Best Male Dance Performance. That does not give anyone the right to drag each other, that does not give any one the right to go around slandering any other group. Instead of focusing on this bullshit, just focus on supporting your bias group, all this wasted energy can be used for something that is positive.

I’m not going to insert any pictures of what anyone has been saying, because looking at that stuff literally made me sick to my stomach. Those people that are going around being negative need to take a step back…. I’m also not going to link anyone to their harsh words just so that they can get attention that they crave. 

This isn’t directed at just one fandom, I’m saying this in general, only because a group gets the recognition they deserve does not mean that you should be hateful about it. You should be happy for them, you should be happy that Kpop is starting to be recognized around the world. 

Spy is a dead beat dad and Scout surely spent most of his life wishing for a dad that was never around. With Spy telling Scout as Tom Jones that Tom is his father, and not him, was giving his son the father he always wanted. Spy wanted to give his son someone better than him, a father Scout could be proud of.

This coming from a man who is all about his ego, who is all about how much better he is than everyone else. This man admits he isn’t a good father and tries in his warped way to give his child someone better to be the man he wants in his life. Who has longed for.

I honestly believe Spy wasn’t trying to hide who he really was, just rather admit he’s not good enough and provided something better. Yes a lie, but that’s who and what he does, lie so skillfully to accomplish his goals. This time his goal was to make his son’s last moments a good one.
