not debate

An unfinished (and never to be finished) shitty project that I started over a year ago.  

Chester’s passing came as a bit of a shock and with that said, I kinda owe this band, LP, a lot. Listening to them got me through some tough times through the years. RIP Chester.

this might come across as bitter cause ive just read 40 discourse posts in row, but honestly why is the fact that lesbian and bi experiences aren’t identical only ever used in defense of the lesbian experience? why would the vast majority of people rather conceptualize bi women as ‘appropriating’ lesbian experiences than acknowledge and support us in the unique experiences we have ourselves?

Blaire White & Onision Debate

I already posted this mini-rant beneath the debate video itself, but I’m going to add it here as a text post as well in case people have a preference for reblogging this instead. 


A lot of people in the comments section of the Blaire White x Onision debate video, and in the anti-O and O communities alike, are complaining about Blaire’s conduct during this debate: “WHY DIDN’T SHE LET HIM TALK?! WHY WAS SHE SO MEAN? WHY DID SHE KEEP INTERRUPTING HIM?”, and claiming that Onision won by default just because she interrupted him so much. Allow me to explain to you why Blaire did this the way she did.

Despite the fact that Onision labels himself “honest” and “The Fact Fucking Machine”, in reality, he is neither of these things. Onision had no objective to enter this debate with the intent of arguing with honesty and integrity - he uses these debates as a way to manipulate and assert control over others, especially women (notice how he almost always debates women?). If you allow Onision to lead the conversation during these debates, he will dominate it, he was gaslight you, and he will manipulate circumstances, conversation, and even the very definition of words themselves in order to serve his purpose: to monopolize the conversation, and win. Not to debate honestly, to expand his horizons, or to defend his ideals, but to win, to dominate, to influence, to garner attention, and to humiliate.  The way that Blaire treated this debate - as a joke, by purposely toying with him, and by being the person to lead the conversation - is the ONLY way to win a debate with Onision. You have to keep him following your lead, and not allow him to command the conversation even for a single second - as soon as he gets the upper hand, he will take it (you can see him trying at several places throughout this video, when Blaire listens long enough for him to start picking up steam). Unfortunately in this instance, where somebody else is dominating the conversation, he will then switch into victim mode (“she was so mean, she was so angry, she called me names, she yelled even though I was so calm” - even though he has done the same thing himself in EVERY single debate he’s had; I mean, just look at his debate with Joy Sparkle BS last week where he called her every name in the book - but then he labels HIS yelling and insults as “righteous indignation”); but nonetheless, despite trying to posit himself as a victim of Blaire, he will still be angry and annoyed and feel humiliated and defeated.

Blaire knew all of this before going into the debate. She is very well-versed in Onision and his manipulative techniques. That’s why she treated him the way she did throughout the conversation. She 100% went through with this debate not because she actually wanted to have a discussion or to prove him wrong, but literally just because she wanted an opportunity to fuck with him - she actually admitted this several times during the course of the conversation. And it worked. She got what she wanted.

I don’t follow Blaire and we disagree on many topics (particularly conservatism), but this debate had me fucking rolling at how expertly she turned his own game on its head, used it against him, and then won, with his OWN tactics; and I was incredibly proud of her for managing to do so. This is the first time I’ve ever seen Onision get spanked like a baby during a debate, and I loved watching it. Thank you, Blaire. I’ve been waiting for this for YEARS.  

For those of you who haven’t seen the debate yet, I highly recommend it. Honestly, he got tyrannosaurus rekt. There’s just no other way to say it. (Video)

FYI, Omni doesn't have a last name!

I see this mess up quite often, people thinking Omni’s full name is “Omni Blue” when in actuality it’s just a specific special tag for Omni. Their full name is just “Omni”. They see no need for a last name.

Blue is my name, so Omni Blue is just Omni’s name then mine to link that tag to me.~ I see it a lot in both images of Omni and the OmniPJ tag, so just some clarification! 💙

¿Por qué rolear en un foro realista?

No sé si llego tarde o no, pero recién ahora logro hacerme un hueco. Preguntar por qué a las personas les gusta rolear en un foro realista es como preguntar por qué los libros policiales se venden, o por qué “13 reasons why” tuvo tanto éxito. Es porque hay gente que gusta de leerlo, y para eso, alguien tuvo que escribirlo.

Soy una romántica empedernida, he leído todos los libros de Colleen Hoover. Amo el drama. Pero lo que más amo es poder desarrollar a los personajes que creo.

Cuando creo un personaje, lo creo como si fuera una base, “ella o él arrancarán siendo así”, y espero que las tramas del foro o las propias tramas del personaje lo vayan cambiando. En foros no realistas, tienes que leer un millón de cosas, si es de Harry Potter tienes los hechizos, si es supernatural tienes que leer las criaturas. Tienes más juego con el personaje para no tener la necesidad de desarrollarlo. En cambio, en los foros realistas, eres tú y tu personaje, lo que haga el mismo depende de lo que ocurra en el entorno, y no puedes escapar de eso.

Llega un punto, en los foros realistas, en que los recursos que te quedan para abrir los temas es lo que le pasa al personaje, lo que siente, lo que vivió. Por lo menos, eso es lo que me dice mi experiencia.

my daily to-do lists are shorter this summer because i’m working full time, so i’m experimenting with spreads a little. last week’s was “3 things i’m proud i accomplished each day.”

to be honest, i expected piracy in the future to involve a lot more airships and a lot less illegally downloaded music

A few weeks ago, I pretty much begged you all to put aside your issues with Corbyn and vote Labour anyway. I explained that Theresa May was confident of an increased majority in the Commons and that it was vital to ensure that Labour isn’t wiped out altogether.

Since then, a number of new facts have become clear:

(1) Jeremy Corbyn is a much better politician than many of us expected and frankly, it won’t be a hardship for me to vote for a party led by him. For all the fuck-ups, disappointments and problems over the last 18 months, he is by far the most convincing human being out of all the party leaders.

(2) Theresa May is shit. Not just shit in the sense that all Tories are shit - that kind of narrow self-interested completely unsympathetic way. She’s also downright fucking incompetent, in a way that is completely unprecedented. She doesn’t know what her policies are from one week to the next. She can’t handle a Paxman interview or a debate with Corbyn. Even Cameron managed to get something from EU negotiations. She will get us nothing.

(3) Tim Farron is not someone that any left or centre-left voter should be willing to support. He is homophobic, pro-life and pro-fox hunting. He will make a deal with anyone because that’s all the Liberal Democrats can ever aspire to. If they genuinely cared about British voters and not their own careers, they would get out of the fucking way.

(4) Whilst a Tory victory is still looking very likely, Theresa May might not be getting the massively increased majority she was hoping for, because of her aforementioned shitness.

So in light of these new facts… I am still telling you to vote Labour UNLESS you are absolutely sure that another party has a better chance of beating the Tories in your area. Don’t bother with those pointless apps or charts going around to determine this - go to Wikipedia, type in the name of your constituency and check out who came first and second in 2015. This will tell you who you need to vote for to do most damage to the Tories. In the majority of places in England and Wales, that means voting Labour.

People are watching these election debates tonight and saying “oh Tim Farron came off better than I thought” and “Caroline Lucas is good isn’t she?” It doesn’t matter, because those parties don’t matter in the vast majority of constituencies. We cannot let this useless fish turd of a woman continue with a bigger majority, just because we wished Corbyn had spent less time making jam and more time taking the EU referendum seriously.

Get out there on 8th June and vote Labour. Please.
