What I don't fucking get is ppl coming into you and others' inboxes like "why won't you educate me on Flour Lime blah blah blah you're so hypocritical and rude" bc this Flaccid Lime discussion has gone on for months and months so if someone truly wants to educate themselves they can go thru her tag, scroll thru blogs' archives, or Google it. It's not that hard to find, ppl have literally said the same things over and over in tagged posts and asks and in online articles.

THIS IS WHAT IVE BEEN SAYING

A PSA for people commenting on the Alamo’s women-only showings:

Getting real tired of people sneering that the women-only showings are a marketing ploy. Who cares? Businesses make money. That’s kind of their thing. If they can make extra money by doing a particular thing, it’s in their best interest to do it. Great! Here’s the thing:

WE ALL KNOW THAT. You’re not special or intellectually superior for going “ugh, don’t you people realize they’re a BUSINESS and they’re doing this FOR MONEY?”

1. Yes. Allow me to present a new idea to you: people can do things for more than one reason! A business owner can, for example, support a charity AND benefit from the positive press that comes from doing so.
2. Perhaps it is worth celebrating that something like celebrating women and donating to Planned Parenthood is a good business move? Hey, things that are good to do are popular to do! Progress!
3. Sneering at everyone doesn’t make you cool, thinking you’re smarter than everyone just makes you an asshole.

re that post you reblogged about the queen: she is a living symbol of the UKs class divide, the whole royal family are, and by celebrating the monarchy people are celebrating the fact that some are born into ridiculous amounts of wealth and others are born with nothing. The monarchy needs to go, this has been a psa

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really can’t understand how some people can be just, idk, “omg what a cute old woman” without even taking into consideration the fact that royal families everywhere are a heritage that we should just… throw away as soon as possible… without any hesitation.

Like I don’t fucking care if she’s personally a nice person, this fucking woobyfication has to end sdkjfghsjdfhgkjsdf

tbh 99% of the time it’s useless to make a film adaptation of a video game. its not the same as making a book-to-film adaptation because at least you’re changing from a written medium to a visual one. but visual-to-visual just seems like you don’t want to respect video games’ interactive way of telling a narrative. like if you want to create a film with a unique story using that universe? fine. but whats the point of forcing a dynamic visual form into a stagnant visual form? you’re just always going to lose something significant in that translation while not really gaining anything in return

“We need a cure for autism!”

Well you will never get it, no matter your stance on the subject. Autism is likely genetic and studies show that by six months of age there are already detectable changes in the brain that predict an autism diagnosis later in life. So even though we don’t know what autism is, it’s definitely something you’re born with and it is impossible to change that after the baby is born. Nothing will ever turn an autistic person who is alive into an allistic person. You can’t rewrite their entire brain anatomy.

So why do Autism Speaks talk of “the cure”? What they mean by cure is prenatal screening that will allow parents to abort fetuses with certain traits or genes. It means stopping autistic people from being born. It means getting rid of us even before a fetus develops a brain. It means that from their point of view not ever being alive (so essentially death) is better than existence as an autistic person.

That’s what you are saying when you’re advocating for a cure. “I wish you were never born”. “I wish your parents would have aborted you before you developed into a person”. “I think your existence is worse than death”. “I think you would be better off dead”. That is your message. That is your opinion.

Think about that next time you talk about a cure for autism.

Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson | Alternate Universe, Enemies to Lovers, Camping | 30k

It’s one last adventure. One last chance to be young and carefree. One final weekend before they take up their internships, their corporate positions, before they enter the real world, fresh out of university. Niall’s his best mate. Liam’s been there for him since they were lost, little freshmen, trying to find their ways through an overwhelming first year. Harry can’t disappoint them, even if it means enduring four days with Louis.

Louis, who he does share a history with, a history he’s never told anyone about, not even Niall, a history he hasn’t brought up in three years because it’s stupid and embarrassing and confusing.

Or, the one where Harry gets roped into a four-day camping trip with the boy who kissed him and never called back.
