name it claim it

Civil discourse

When did the Golden Rule become, “Do unto others as they did unto you?” I’m so tired of, “Well, they called me names/attacked me first, so it’s okay for me to do the same back.” 

How I respond to an attack says more about me than it does about the other person.* Twice in the last month, I’ve gotten into an argument in AO3 comment threads–once on my own story, and once on another’s. Both times, I was told by friends that I was way nicer than they would have been. 

Friends, I was not nice either time. I was civil. I used polite language to make it very clear to the individuals that I did not feel that their comments were appropriate. One time my words got through to the other person, the other time they did not. But both times, it was clear to any onlookers that I was the better person.

*I’m not saying you have to take insults and derogatory language and abusive behaviour sitting down. I’m not saying you need to be a doormat. But you can defend yourself without calling the other person names and throwing that same vitriol back at them. 

And hopefully, it goes without saying that this does not apply to situations where your physical safety is in danger. If you can safely walk away from a physical altercation, do it. But if you need to hit back to stay safe, that’s an entirely different situation.

Hey, you see this kid? He’s a little boy. He has no control over what his father says and does. His father’s personality, language, and actions will not be changed by you cyberbulling him, calling him names, claiming he has a neurological disorders or otherwise challenging his mental state. Picking on him doesn’t make you edgy, it makes you as much of a bullying piece of shit as you’ve ever thought Trump was. His parents and half-siblings are all adults and can be judged for their actions, but he is a minor who has no say in any of this.

Leave 👏🏾 Barron 👏🏾 Alone👏🏾

since that Mountaindew post got so popular (why) I got inspired and here’s some more warrior cat OCs with terrible names 

18-year-old Sarah McKinley from Oklahoma had recently just been made a widow and single mother when her husband sadly passed from cancer on Christmas Day of 2012. The following week a man by the name of Justin Martin arrived at her door, claiming he was a new neighbour wanting to introduce himself. She did not allow him into the house. A few days later, Martin arrived at McKinley’s door once again. This time he was with another man and was carrying a large hunting knife. The two men knocked on the door and, for obvious reasons, McKinley would not allow the men to enter. They began to force their way into her home where McKinley was with her young baby. Fearing for their life, McKinley armed herself with a 12-gauge shotgun and a pistol, hid in the bedroom and called 911. While on the phone, she asked if she was allowed to shoot the intruder to which dispatch replied, “You have to do whatever you can to protect yourself.” She then shot and killed one of the intruders while the other fled. The shooting was ruled justifiable. You can listen to the 911 call here.

Big-name movie/tv producers with lots of money and resources: claim that minorities make less money and that nobody wants to watch content about women/ poc/ lgbtq people.

Small independent theatre troupe that relies on internet crowdfunding to create their shows: Makes a musical with a diverse cast, is female-led and has a female majority cast, includes a non-binary character and queer relationships without it being a big deal, posts it on youtube after its run is over and gets over 35,000 views within the first day.

Guys, it’s about time I make a confession to you all… I… I have been in denial with this for so long, trying my hardest to prove I wasn’t what I am, pushing an nonexistent hate towards it in a vain, painfully obvious attempt at maintaining the farce, but I just can’t keep this up, I just can’t deny what I am, that for the longest time many of you suspected, considering how paper-tin my actions were…

Yes, for you see, and many of you have already guessed what I’m going at at this point… I, Enrique Manzano, which for so long have shat on it, actually am…











A tiny sentient Tiger I tank, and my real name is actually Heinrich Apfelbaum, the latino I claim is me being some random dude I pay 5 euros a day to help me move around. 

“I don’t see color” when referring to race is not good. You shouldn’t mush all races and ethnicities together in a big blurry ball. You should acknowledge their differences. Acknowledge that poc face unique problems. Acknowledge white privilege. Acknowledge that the US oppresses poc. “I don’t see color” doesn’t mean you’re not racist, it means you’re ignorant.

ok so last night I decided I was finally gonna rewatch all of lazytown bc nostalgia and memes right? right but just ?????? sportacus????? is so extra??????? why is he like that

but also! the mayor told stephanie that there used to be a superhero that lived in an aircraft with the number 9 on his suit. but like sportacus??? he’s number 10. but clearly sportacus isn’t an immortal being and the mayor just forgetful, as robbie rotten is also old enough to remember this number 9 as he incredulously exclaims “there’s another one??” which begs the question what happened to number 9? why did he leave lazytown? what happened to the eight before either of them? was 9′s name also sportacus or did each of these heroes claim their own name?  is sportacus number 9′s clone? how has he survived alone in a blimp for so long?

what is sportacus hiding?

a quick note to everyone who claims that all the weasleys are named after arthurian characters

there were no popular round table knights in the legends and retellings named william, charles, fred, george or ronald (though in some versions ron is a shortened version of the name of arthur’s lance, rhongomyniad) 

or molly, for that matter, and ‘ginevra’ is a strange choice for guinevere if that was the intention behind the name - jenny is probably actually a name closer derived from guinevere.

although i do want to see an au where ron is called bors, just because that is a silly name
