tumblr debunking

Mormon-phobia on tumblr

I used to wonder why I saw so many post like, “Support LGBT Muslims” because isn’t the Muslim faith against the LGBT community? But then I realized they were like me, they believed everything their faith says except what they say on the LGBT community. So, then I was like awwww such a positive message, like! And I expected to find similar post but for Mormons, as a bi-sexual Mormon I was quite excited to find these post, but instead I found a lot of anti-Mormons on Tumblr. And this confused me a lot oppression? And ever since the beginning people were KILLED and KICKED OUT OF THEIR STATE solely for being Mormon you would think all the SJW’s on Tumblr would be all MORMONS ARE VALID and REBLOG IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS A SAFE PLACE FOR LGBT MORMONS but it’s not. So, I will be debunking some myths

#1 All Mormons will judge you if you don’t live up to their standers

This myth is very widely believed because a lot of Mormon will do this, you see our church teaches that you should not judge others, but guess what people regardless of their faith are still humans who make mistakes and judge others, so let me make something very clear the people of the church does not equal what the church teaches  it’s like with ISIS they are still Muslim but they do not follow the true teachings of Islam (though they are MUCH more extreme  than some judge-y  Mormons) remember: the first shall be last and the last shall be first Matthew 20:16.

#2 Mormons are anti-women

This one makes me chuckle because of how absurd it is. This probably comes from the fact that women can’t hold the priesthood let me make another thing clear priesthood holders do not equal the priesthood  that’s like saying pregnancy is sexist because men can’t get pregnant, everybody has the priesthood and reap its benefits but only men can hold it. Here’s a nice analogy so you can understand it easier

You need a man to get pregnant but only women can get pregnant you need a woman to complete the priest hood but only a man can hold the priesthood

#3 all Mormons are homophobic

Now this one is a little complicated because plenty are, but remember the people don’t equal the church, you see what the church teaches on the LGBT community can be boiled down to, you do you fam I don’t care of course some people misinterpreted that to ‘hate all the homos’ and there are some (like me) that completely 100% support them and there also more that are part of the LGBT community (also like me) in fact most Mormon parents (that I know of) that have gay children are mad/sad at the fact that they left the church not that they are gay, they still love them, and even give their blessing to marry who they love, My parents 100% supported my gay cousin and attended his wedding. (I’m sure they’re plenty of homophobic Mormons this is just my experience)

NaruSaku Is Not A Damn Crack Ship: The Semi-Essay (a.k.a. The Semi-Essay That Shouldn’t Be Necessary But For Some Reason Is)

So, apparently there are people who still believe NaruSaku is a crackship. Mostly, NH/SS fans. Now, I know I’ll never be able to convince some of these delusionals the truth, but I always try despite the fruitlessness of it all. So I wrote a semi essay on a cold hard fact we ALL should already know but don’t for some reason.

First, let’s tackle the definition of a crackship. The universal definition is:

I think we can all agree on this, right? Although I usually define a crackship solely as a ship between two who haven’t met/barely interacted, I feel like this maybe a more broad definition for fandoms.

Anyways, with this definition in mind, let’s analyze NaruSaku according to the 4 requirements for one to be a crack ship, according to the definition above. I’m gonna try to keep this short.

1. Are Not Expected To Be Romantically Compatible

Well, I found them romantically compatible in a few ways.

I think they’d fit quite nicely. Heaven and Earth, parallels between other canon couples, etc… Their relationship is genuinely healthy and mutual. Their personalities fit together, with Sakura keeping Naruto’s occasional recklessness in check and Naruto hold back Sakura when she gets a bit too mad, like with Sai haha.

2. Low Chances of Happening In The Official Manga

I found this to be false, too. Not only because of Kushina’s statement for Naruto to find someone like her, and with Sakura being very similar to Kushina, but also because of the IMMENSE development they got throughout the manga. They helped each other grow and get through bad situations.

Naruto was also in love with Sakura for most of the manga’s run, and Sakura herself had shown some interest in him. Why in the world would Kishimoto build all of this up if he hadn’t planned for it to happen at one point?

Ah, but hypocrisy and Kishimoto are synonyms at times…

3. Never Met

Exhibit A of actual bullshit.

4. Barely Interacted

The fact that people believe this is really fucking sad. Exhibit B of actual bullshit.


This feels a bit incomplete. I promise one day I’ll be more in depth with the first 2, but what I really wanted to prove in this post that NaruSaku is definitely NOT a crack ship, and I wanted to address it now. It really annoys me when antis say this especially fans of NaruHina…

So, yeah, that’s my view on it. If antis want to debate with me, then go right ahead. But at least try to come up with a decent argument. Honestly…

anonymous asked:

Yes, Dee, you really should be working. Bet your horses and their owners miss you when you spend all day on here. Why don't you be a regular fan & stop spreading lies & conspiracy theories about Sam & Cait. Wonder what the uni would think of Professor McD's wife being such an obsessed out of touch with reality fanatic. And it would really be embarrassing for K to know that her mother is considered an Outlander tinhatter. Light shipping with no conspiracy theories spread is the way to go, Dee.

Awww, anon, am I spending too much time on Tumblr for your tastes? Debunking too many of your sacred, but not very well supported opinions? Sorry about that- but what I choose to do with the publicly available information that is available to me is my prerogative, as also is how I spend my free time. That’s the time when I am not working. My tag line is a bit of humour, anon, not to be taken seriously. All the work gets done and then some, anon, never worry about that!
And speaking of publicly available information, I see that you have also availed yourself of some and done some poking about as to me and my family. No problem as far as I am concerned, or my family either. It is, after all, publicly available information and you are quite welcome to it. But you leave me at something of a social disadvantage, anon, in that you presume to address me on a first name basis- but, as you have chosen to remain anonymous-I don’t yet have your name to reciprocate properly with our first name basis communications. Oh, well, I suppose there is nothing for it but to just go on addressing you as “anon” until you see fit to introduce yourself.
But I suppose I should now get down to answering your questions. Since you have troubled yourself to learn so much about me it’s the least I can do to reciprocate your interest!

First, my clients are all quite aware of my blog, and of its direction. In fact we often laugh about the absurdities of social media, and the proclivities of certain of its users to take it upon themselves to tell others how they should think. ( that’s a polite way to say “NSTer, anon)

And then there is my husband, who as you point out, anon, is indeed a professor. He was a little miffed to learn about your interest in him, anon, but only because your research seems to have failed to turn up, and refer to him by, his actual job title. He is actually a Distinguished Professor- which means he holds an endowed chair, anon, which means he is a very important part of his department, he teaches the advanced courses, sits on important committees, oh, and he also has tenure. Which means that it doesn’t really matter to him, or to his uni, what sort of things his wife might choose to do with her spare time. Even if that thing is to be an “obsessed out of touch with reality fanatic” lol! He is also well aware of my blog, and it’s content. In fact we both get a really good laugh together most mornings when he shares with me the latest political news a la Trump and friends, and I fill him in on the latest fandom happenings (that’s also a polite way to say “NSTer happenings, anon)

And then there is my lovely daughter, anon. I am so glad you didn’t leave her out of this as I am always happy to talk about her- that’s what parents love to do! She’s also well aware of my blog, and it’s content as well, anon. In fact she was the one who got me started in Tumblr. She ran a fandom blog in another fandom for several years and is also well aware of ships and shipping- and how the term "tinhatter” is applied to any ship that an individual disagrees with (which is a polite way of saying “NSTer”, anon)

So now that the pleasantries are sorted, anon, let’s get down to your real reason for writing. The conspiracy thing. You advocate “light shipping” for me, but there is no such thing. Not in the dictionary, not in the Urban Dictionary, and not even on Google. It doesn’t exist as a word, or a concept. It is only a “thing” in the minds of certain bloggers. The truth is, anon, you either ship it or you don’t. No heavy or light to it.
And as to any “conspiracies” that is also a thing that comes with the territory in this fandom. The position of both sides requires there to be a “conspiracy” for their position to exist. The Sam Cait ship requires the “official” narrative of Sam and other girls to be a put on. And the Samzie ship requires the whole of the matter between Sam and Cait, as displayed by them their own selves, to be a put on. Either way someone is doing a put on, anon, it’s just a difference of opinion as to who.

When I add it up I get sam and Cait, as do my family and friends. Others get a different answer. So be it. Live and let live, and it is all public information after all. It’s not illegal, or even immoral to form opinions about it. Or to print those opinions or discussions.

And that brings me to your last point, anon. The implication that I am putting my family at risk by looking at publicly available information, and printing my opinions about it. Or that I am doing something wrong that I, or they, would not want known about.
It’s obvious that is not the case. If I was doing wrong, and if you were actually someone with the power to do something about that, then we would be having this communication via letterhead, and not via an anonymous submission to my Tumblr blog.

And maybe you should ask yourself what it is that you are really saying when you resort to threats to try to silence the words what you claim to be nothing more than an “obsessed, out of touch with reality fanatic”. If I was truly just a “tinhatter” shouldn’t it be easy to simply ignore me the same way that everyone ignores the homeless guy who stands on the busy intersection preaching loudly, every day, about the end of he world which according to him is directly upon us?
Instead you take the time out of your life to research my family and compose implicit threats- and no one likes to waste time. That tells me that my words are not meaningless. That tells me that my words are believable- and that they are believable enough to cause a threat to your worldview. And that you had no facts at hand, or even a good argument to make to refute them. No reason to need me silenced otherwise that I can see. There really isn’t a higher compliment

So thanks, anon, for taking the time out of your day so send me such a gracious compliment. My family and I send you our regards. Sorry we can’t thank you personally at this time since you are still anonymous, but perhaps in time you will feel comfortable introducing yourself. Or maybe not, since your choice to remain anonymous rather confirms the view that revealing your true identity would also be a reveal that you are in fact nobody whose opinion actually matters- or you would be using your real name and revealing that your opinion DOES matter after all. But this all is making even my eyes roll, anon, so take care of yourself, anon, whoever you are!
Until then- Cheers!

I know doing the tumblr equivalent of a subtweet isn’t the best but I don’t want to stir up shit knowing this website - but I’ve seen yet another post by a Sicilian-American claiming Sicilians are considered something “other” than mainland Italians citing the long standing Arab rule of Sicily in the Middle Ages other than the influx of various other people/ethnicities who invaded or traded with Sicily. And I’m always super puzzled at this kind of thing because this otherizing of Sicily as “not Italian” is something I’ve never heard of in Italy, not even by staunch Northern League supporters (if anything they see Sicilians/Southern Italians as “too Italian” in a way; it’s complicated). Like really, if there is an oddball island that is seen as doing its own thing culturally and historically it’s Sardinia, not Sicily. And even then, it doesn’t happen in the terms I see some tumblrites apply to Sicily.

But the point is… pretty much all of Italy has been invaded by or has traded with half of the world through the centuries. It’s one of the reasons why we have such distinctively different regional cultures and languages (or vernaculars, though personally I tend to ascribe to the notion that they are more like dialects of vulgar Latin than of standard Italian which is more of a recent construct - anyway: if people from my neighboring regions speak their vernacular I can’t fucking understand a word, and vice versa I guess. It’s that different - multiply that for 20 regions). There is no such thing as a definite “Italian” ethnicity. Even something like an Italian identity is kind of volatile. Again: it’s complicated.

Zoom in and you all can clearly see the difference between those ladies and Meghan. They made some changes in the background. They always do it to make it prettier. They fixed those ladies hair by using photoshop. No big deal. They did minimum job on them. MM is the total different story. Her head and hair were real and taken from some other pic. The rest was pure creation. That pretty much it. My modest opinion is the article was written first. Was Megsy even considered to be in that pic. with those ladies? Who knows? Maybe never. Oh wait, she was dating Harry. Big deal. She could not be left unnoticed. She is a humanitarian for crying out loud. Lets have her photoshopped in? LOL Just my thought. 

Thanks, Lily this is great! Another lie debunked by tumblrs and the world




Do y’all remember when Cas got blown up in “Swan Song”?

Bit hard to forget.

Well, he clearly explains in, “The Things We Left Behind” what happened to his vessel, Jimmy Novak, when this happened.

Now, if I remember correctly, Castiel was blown up by Lucifer because Cas blew up his older brother, Michael

So the same thing that happened to Castiel happened to Michael, meaning the same thing happened to Jimmy as it did to Adam

Therefore, Adam is in Heaven (assuming he didn’t go downstairs if you know what I mean), and has never been in the cage with Lucifer and Sam. So I’m assuming any misconceptions (mostly from Dean when he talked to Death in, “An Appointment in Samarra”) about having two brothers he had to save from Hell, were mistakes from the writers or just Dean not thinking. Case closed.

the many, many posts circulating tumblr ‘’debunking’’ biological sex are not going to change my feminism. i’m not going to say they’re wrong or untrue because i’m not a biologist! i can however say they are missing the point!!!!

maybe biological sex isn’t a strict binary! maybe the way we see it is bullshit! fine! that doesn’t change the fact that society at large believes in biological sex and raises their children accordingly (that is gender socialization!!) 

so when i argue that yes, there are tangible distinctions between experiences of ‘cis’ and ‘trans’ womanhood, that’s not something you can change my mind about by pointing out i don’t know the chromosomes of every trans or cis woman!!

society is invested in biological sex, ergo trans women are male socialised regardless of their individual chromosomes!! feels real insidious to act as if it is exclusively the job of women to be open minded about what gender and sex mean when regardless of actual biological sex (assuming all the trans discourse info that in many people it is ambiguous is in fact correct), people who are thought to be biologically female are already at the fucking mercy of people thought to be biologically male all the fucking time, now we’re not even allowed to speak of this difference in treatment because it isn’t grounded in physical reality? it was never grounded in reality! our heavily gendered society is due to patriarchal structures which is an oppressive construct! women are not the problem!

What the special characters’ Tumblrs would be like:

Isabelle: Reminders about upcoming events, photos of pretty locations in town, interviews with the villagers, etc. Basically the town’s official blog.

Tom Nook: Interior design and architecture blog. Almost entirely original content, but has never made a personal post.

Timmy & Tommy: They co-run a coupon code aggregate that has a non-Tumblr url and a bunch of ads on the side. Never provide codes for their own store.

Blathers: Runs like five different history blogs appealing to different niches. Remains impartial on his analyses but makes huge walls of text on his personal feelings on stuff whenever he gets an ask.

Celeste: Celeste is actually the creator of every single astrology meme post on Tumblr as of this moment.

Reese: Thrift shop finds and scenes; everything above half saturation from prettycolors; selfies of herself posing with the furniture in the shop.

Cyrus: Nothing but reblogs of Reese’s selfies with super enthusiastic commentary.

Brewster: More artsy foreground-focus photos of coffee than you thought existed on Tumblr; lots of original gyroid artwork.

K.K.: Meticulously watches the hashtags about him, reblogs every upload of one of his songs, answers lots of asks from fans. Rarely actually uploads any of his own songs, and even then, usually only the demos.

Shrunk: Memes upon memes. Has never made an original post that’s gotten more than 20 notes, despite having hundreds of active followers.

Redd: Redd is definitely the guy who keeps making all those blatantly untrue fun fact posts that require like five seconds of Googling to debunk but get like 200k notes.

Booker: Booker is the guy who keeps reblogging Redd’s posts and gets really passionate about them in his tags.

Copper: Copper only has a Tumblr to debunk Booker’s reblogs (which Booker then reblogs while apologizing really hard to his followers for spreading false information).

I'm glad you are spending today debunking tumblr's new opposition to washing their assholes with soap. Wash your butts, children!

I don’t feel like what i’m advocating is that crazy? I personally know a lot of people who could benefit from a nice warm washcloth with a little bit of soap squeezed on! And then just gently scrubbed. It’s not like baby wipes are just water! And if I know a bunch then I know there are others! :/

anonymous asked:

I hope a journalism professor is watching all of this unravel and will teach a course on how a group of people Tumblr debunked a major pop culture coverup using only common sense.

I was just talking with someone this morning about how our fandom is a sociologist’s dream, but the truth is, we would be a journalism, marketing, pr, or psychology professor’s dream too!

anonymous asked:

when tumblr fandom has debunked every another stunt and they get bored they fight over which harry potter house ot5 belongs to! what is this fandom even.

This is actually the only right thing to do. We shouldn’t even be debunking all this stuff, we shouldn’t have to do that, we shouldn’t know that much rip we should talk abou fics and the boys’ outfits and all this good pure stuff

I was talking to my parents and my dad brought up babygate and I told him it wasn’t real and then proceeded to read multiple articles and debunk tumblr posts on it.

I then showed my mom the pictures of Louis and the baby. Keep in mind she has had four kids. She said “there is no way this is a newborn. His legs should be shorter and Louis should be supporting his neck because babies cannot support their necks very well.”

I showed her the pictures of Briana and she said. “No way. Your face gets bloated and your legs get bloated and there is no way any woman is going to want to walk in heels so soon after giving birth.”

After an hour of disproving babygate, my mother said in conclusion, “yeah, there is no way that baby is Louis’ or that girl’s. She couldn’t have given birth and he isn’t even taking care of the baby properly.”

Basically, if my mother can see it, so should you.
