tumblr you have no idea how much hate i have for you rn

anonymous asked:

why are you anti john green?

before i jump into all this, these are my opinions. don’t jump down my throat for them. thanks. also, i haven’t thought about john green in a while or read his books for at least a year, so sorry if i mix a few things up.

there’s a few things in this handy tag here, but tbh you could also go to the blog fishinboatsproceedsnerdfighterfighter, and ihatejohngreen and get a lot more reasons if you look hard enough bc even though there’s a lot of posts there that are just making fun of him, they have a lot of posts that genuinely give good reasons on why they don’t like him. you could also go through quaffels anti john green tag, here, as well. i also really liked this video, but that’s just for tfios. aaaand there’s also this, but this is more entertainment-pointed, but does include some legitimate points in regards to tfios. i’ll talk more extensively on why i am, personally, but since i’m sick, have hw, and rly have no patience rn, i do apologize if it’s not the most eloquent. as i said, i’m sick and hopped up on cold medicine tbh. not the best state of mind to rant in, but here i go, anyway, since you asked. (under the cut because it got rly long)

THOUGHTS I HAD WHILST WATCHING THE MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS

WARNING. THIS POST CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FROM THE FILM and is really fricking long. It also contains lots of CUSSING and bad grammar. If you don’t want spoilers I suggest you skip this post but if you want to find out more, plz continue. Oh and it also has a lot of Thomesa comments so if you ship Trenda you probs wont like this…ENJOY!

·      Omg YAS YAS

·      It’s starting

·      Aww little Thomas

·      Aww little Thomas getting dragged away from his mommy.

·      Dream sequence

·      Thomas be like fuck no this again

·      Let the 74th hunger games begin

·      Ooh Minho oppa

·      Lots of shouting

·      So many cross cuts and black outs

·      Ewww Ratman

·      Aiden Gillan is a pretty good actor. Hate his accent though.

·      They’re all really dirty in their glade outfits but they’re still so hot though

·      THE SHOWER SCENE

·      Lol minho in the background: “woo hoo”

·      Dylan is so hot

·      He’s naked

·      OMG he looks so cool right now. He’s so wet

·      Shouldn’t they be suspicious of injections? I mean I would be. Especially if you don’t know who these people are.

·      Oh at least Newt is suspicious.

·      Wait why isn’t Thomas saying anything

·      Jokes he just asked another question

·      Someone better do a question count for Thomas

·      Minho’s wearing red

·      Soo many teenagers

·      If there was more than one maze, where and how did WCKD manage to find a place to fit that many mazes, along with facilities that monitor them. Also, how many grievers would they have made for this purpose? What if the grievers rebelled and decided to do they own shit? Wouldn’t wckd be fucked then?

·      Oh look its Aris. The loner emo boy wearing a hoodie. Remind you of anything?

·      How old is Aris again? He looks like he’s 13.

·      Thomas be like: no let me see her. Such devotion.

·      Please don’t pick a fight with a guard.

·      Yes Thomas, just walk away.

·      Bunk beds. Why is it always bunk beds?

·      Minho: ‘too slow’ ha ha

·      More dream sequences!

·      Thomas the insomniac

·      Aris creepily saying pssst while under Thomas’ bed

·      Just so happens that the air vent opening is right under Thomas’ bed. #movie logic. If you’re reading this CinemaSins and happen to do a ‘Everything wrong with the Maze Runner the Scorch Trials’ based on this post, you better reference me or at least mention me and get people to like this post on Tumblr. Btw, you guys are awesome! [thumbs up]

·      Thomas: “What the hell am I doing?” yeah Thomas, what are you doing?

·      See!!! He even talks to himself using questions.

·      Air vents, the most common way to eavesdrop on people

·      Ooh dead bodies

·      Thomas picking a fight with a guard-WTF ru doing bro?

·      Jeez Thomas take a fucking chill pill

·      Oh he’s getting the swipe card thingy

·      Sending kids back to their rooms-the most common way of grounding children when they do bad stuff

·      Jeez you didn’t have to shove them in there. Such a rude guard.

·      Newt be like: cant we just be happy for once?

·      Thomas has an idea! Everyone hates it.

·      Everyone else be like: of course Thomas. Of course.

·      Thomas dropping into the hallway from the air vent like spiderman.

·      How are you gonna get back up though?

·      Okay so teenagers are being strapped up to tubey things

·      This totally isn’t child abuse

·      Oh no is that Teresa? Jks no

·      OHHHHH its Rachel

·      RIP Aris’ girlfriend

·      I ship it though

·      #Raris… or is it Arachel? Idk

·      Hiding behind poles

·      Lots of dramatic walking in this film

·      ava paige [sitting down and signing pages like a boss]

·      its good to see that the boss is a woman though

·      oh wait let me correct myself, she’s a “doctor”…doctor my ass, more like a lady killer who just wants to dissect children for money.

·      Seriously Thomas you need to calm the fuck down and just tell everyone else what’s going on

·      Great acting though, Dylan O’Brien [thumbs up]

·      #Follow Thomas the leader…or should I say Thomas the tank engine? Ha ha just kidding.

·      Everyone just blindly follow Thomas when we all know he doesn’t have a plan most of the time

·      Fuck yeah Minho is such a badass by kneeing that guard

·      #MINHO POWER

·      God he’s hot

·      Guns

·      Yes lets use the lady doctor as a hostage

·      Operation rescue Teresa

·      Found her

·      Thomas is totes in love with her. He’s so concerned about her all the time.

·      so many Thomesa feels rn

·      Yay window smashing!

·      Thomas and Newt breaking glass. #Teamwork

·      aww Thomas carried Teresa

·      Lots of door barging/blocking moments

·      Everyone keeps shouting Thomas! Like we get it. Everyone is obsessed with him.

·      Why is Thomas always the last one to leave? Or the one who stays behind. It’s like he willingly tries to be the last one standing. Stop isolating yourself Thomas. Everyone knows your chances of survival are better when you’re in a group, not when you’re alone. Thomas is so dumb sometimes.

·      Yay Aris. #Aris the hero. What a wildcard!

·      Is Teresa barefoot?

·      Thomas: *shoots at guys with shields with tazer gun. Gun runs out of ammo. Throws away gun before he starts to run for it.*

·      Can I just say that something about Dylan O’Brien holding a gun, or any guy doing badass but somewhat violent actions gets me so turned on.

·      Man that running and sliding under the closing door was epic

·      Yeah Thomas. U GO!

·      Best bit in movie-Thomas giving Ratman the finger [applause]

·      I bet Dylan O’Brien improvised this scene

·      HILARIOUS

·      How did they manage to run out people on aircraft and dirt bikes?

·      How can they see where they’re going?

·      Wow lots of sand.

·      Of course he doesn’t have a plan Newt. Its Thomas!

·      lol, mountain people

·      The Right Arm reference

·      Wardrobe change

·      It’s really dark

·      Something bad is bound to happen soon

·      Suspenseful music

·      Why do I get this feeling that I’m watching more of a thriller/horror movie than a science fiction film?

·      No Minho don’t turn on the generator!

·      HOLY SHIT, CRANK!

·      HOLY SHIT MORE CRANKS!

·      Run bitches run!

·      Are they inside a mall?

·      Mall chase scene

·      Man, these cranks are scary AF

·      This film is really fast-paced though. It just goes from one scene to another like that-[clicks fingers]

·      Oh look its daytime. Its always safer in daytime

·      NEXT TIME ON GLADERS VS WILD

·      The graphics are great though

·      Sand dunes

·      so much sand everywhere

·      Another Thomesa scene YAY!

·      Wait teresa has her memories?

·      Ooh wait…that means…oh okay

·      Wtf Winston

·      Oh god he’s infected

·      Why is this scene being carried out like page 250.

·      He even says: ‘I don’t want to end up a monster’

·      Depressing death scene when its not even halfway through the movie

·      Wait they’re just leaving the gun with him? Oh ok.

·      Everyone just walks away

·      Goodbye Winston

·      Choreographed halting after sound of gunshot. Nice.

·      RIP WINSTON

·      NO MORE WATER

·      Minho why would you throw the bottle away? You could’ve saved it for later! You’re in a wasteland for Christ’s sake!

·      Sleeping in the middle of the dessert. NICE.

·      Thomas: I see the light!

·      A storm is coming…jks the storm hit immediately in just 10 seconds

·      Ahhh MINHO

·      Minho got hit

·      Character that almost dies but doesn’t trope

·      Minho after getting told he got hit by lightning: ‘Oh”

·      Oh Minho you’re so cute

·      Everyone turns around and sees a crank

·      [I literally jumped when I saw it]

·      More cranks. Wonderful.

·      Oh look who it is. Brenda.

·      GIANCARLO!

·      Brenda’s got sass

·      Ha ha lol, they’re all hanging upside down

·      Minho’s sass lines have appeared!

·      Interrogation time

·      JorgexBrenda moment. How sweet.

·      Wait what? Jorge wants to play music? DAFQ

·      Ha ha wckd is confused

·      This is some old ass music for a film that set in the future. I mean they’re still using cd records. Really? I mean shouldn’t it be coming out of like a boom box or something. It’d be funny if they played Gangnam Style or something. It’d be even funnier if there was an ad before the song played.

·      No Thomas don’t go after Brenda.

·      Seriously though.

·      Thomas is like Percy Jackson, never leaves a man behind. Or woman in this case.

·      Wckd guards are idiots. They’re in shooting range!

·      OHHH SO IT WAS A BOMB TRIGGER SEQUENCE

·      AWESOME

·      That was clever though

·      So many scenes in complete darkness

·      Stop having Trenda scenes

·      Why are you going deeper into the tunnel?

·      Thomas: ‘you think?’ another question. Thank you, Thomas. [sings Girls Generation in my head.]

·      It’s a rat. Gross.

·      Oh and now a crank is eating the rat. RIP rat.

·      It’s time to go now trenda.

·      RUN. Stop standing there. RUN!

·      Oh for Christ sake

·      Epic chase sequence

·      Wow that is some really nice graphics. Really nice.

·      I hate the cranks though

·      Wes wasn’t joking when he said they were scary

·      The cranks look like some RPG zombie game shit

·      Rock climbing

·      Yeah Thomas! Kill that crank!

·      Brenda’s infected. Great. She’s so gonna die…NOT.

·      Finally, there are actually civilians who aren’t trying to hunt down the protagonists or sell them for money.

·      Who the hell is Marcus anyway?

·      Oh that actor. Why is he everywhere? He’s the douchebag bad guy in Dollhouse as well.

·      Yeah sure, just take whatever drink a stranger offers you. Even if they’re acting real shady about it and keep insisting you drink it and go into the party. I mean, I get that you’re trying to find the others but srsly? Would they actually be dumb enough to walk into that party?

·      Yay a party scene

·      OMFG THOMAS IS HIGH

·      Great acting Dylan O’Brien

·      Lol this is hilarious

·      Walk into da club like wow I am so fucked right now

·      Crank execution in a club, why not?

·      For a second I thought the guy killing that crank was Ben.

·      Blue lighting

·      Blue and white are such predominant colours in this film.

·      Okay now Thomas is really high.

·      Hallucinations

·      Eww not Trenda

·      Brenda is so fucking desperate right now

·      Technically you’re not the only two left. You just haven’t found the others.

·      Oh for Christ’s sake you’re both high. Have some restraint would ya?

·      No THOMAS NO

·      Don’t you dare!

·      Fucking hell he kissed her

·      WHY IS IT STILL GOING?

·      Oh now he’s kissing Teresa

·      YAY Thomesa kiss!

·      Jks its only a hallucination

·      Thomas: ‘you’re not her’

·      Poor Brenda. #REJECTED

·      Thomesa spark is still alive

·      Yes Thomas, I knew I could believe in you

·      Thomas blacks out…again

·      Teresa: ‘we have to stop meeting like this’ ha ha lol.

·      Wait so that guy was Marcus?

·      Violent interrogation

·      Threatening by use of death

·      Bertha????

·      Oh it’s a truck.

·      Wait a second… that looks like Stiles’ truck. They’re both blue. Mindfuck.

·      Lol Newt looks so excited to be inside a truck. Ha ha. So cute <3

·      Ambush

·      There sure are a lot of guns in this movie.

·      Oh look Group B finally makes an appearance

·      Aww! Aris, Harriet and Sonya reunite

·      Why do Sonya and Aris seem to have a thing for each other? Maybe it’s just me but she seems way to happy to see him.

·      Who the heck is Vince?

·      Oh look its Thomas’ mom.

·      Don’t remember? Oh okay…

·      Wait Thomas is the Source?

·      Oh so he’s been backstabbing wckd for ages.

·      Good on you Thomas!

·      I feel like Thomas is the only one with an actual conscience.

·      Of course Brenda gets the cure.

·      Yes Thomas, just stealthily reach into her pocket whilst she’s asleep. #totes not a perv

·      Wait Brenda had a brother? His name is George?/Jorge?

·      Wait don’t tell me her brother was Chuck?

·      Brenda: you remind me of him-WOAH don’t tell me Thomas is her brother

·      Brenda: ‘they didn’t want me’ #REJECTED…again

·      YAY Thomesa flashback

·      Just kiss already

·      Newt calling Thomas ‘Tommy’

·      Just when you think your favourite characters are finally safe…it’s bound to get a whole lot worse.

·      OHHHHH Teresa! Why?????

·      I saw this coming though

·      Thomas looks so disappointed in her.

·      Teresa quoting Thomas

·      So sad

·      The ship is no longer sailing

·      #Betrayed

·      Enter Darth Ava [lol]

·      Ava paige reminds me of President Snow. They both wear white.

·      Ratman you son of a bitch.

·      RIP Mary.

·      Oh lol she must be named after Marie Curie.

·      Explosions!

·      No not Minho. Don’t take away my oppa!

·      Come on Thomas! Rescue him.

·      NO oppa, don’t go!

·      Oh yes, it has to end with inspiring speech time executed by Thomas

·      Thomas: ‘I made a promise to Minho.’ THOMINHO IS REAL!

·      And so it ends.

·      Ha lol the number of times everyone said ‘shit’ in this movie

Glob I am so gonna cry in the last movie.

·      The Death Cure: the journey of Thomas trying to save his BFF Minho who he is secretly gay for whilst dealing with the fact that his crush Teresa betrayed him. I can’t wait!

·      God what am I going to do with my life as I wait for the next one?

A/N: WOW it’s been five months since i last posted anything and even longer since i’ve updated this fic jfc. i’m so shit sorry guys how are any of you still here. my schedule is still as sporadic as ever and it’s about to get even worse and i can’t be on tumblr as much anymore but i missed writing and i missed everyone so guess who’s back back again ~~~ but in all seriousness, thank you so much to everyone for sticking around, it means the world to me. this chapter is kinda short bc my internet connection sucks rn but i’ll try my hardest to post the next part by this wednesday (i make a lot of promises i know know but hold me to this one)(also i posted this entire chapter using html code on the tumblr mobile app bc the internet hates me)

Chapter Description/Excerpt:

“Bloody hell, Peej, couldn’t even mention it in passing, could you? ‘Oh, by the way, Phil, Zoella’s hell-bent on having you write a song for her in six days so make sure you don’t look like an idiot when she mentions it.’ A heads-up would’ve been really fucking nice!”

anonymous asked:

Who thinks if this extreme level of PC, shutting down of free speech + debate, and generally the American-centric bad Social Justice Warriors of tumblr, spilling out in real life in America especially in college campuses fuelled this 'whitelash', white Americans' backlash against sjw 'poc' infiltrating the states? I mean that, & all the useless white hatred & blaming whites for everything (I have West European colonialism & slavery, but non-white non-Christians like the ottomans did this too).

a lot of people me included, but like, saying IT’S ALL SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS is an oversimplification. like, I read a post once which was enlightening which pointed out how the sjw rhetoric is actually just rehashing of the US OR THEM bush jr rhetoric that ran wild post-sept 11th and I REALLY wish US kids who don’t remember bush (good for you) actually read up on it because what I see rn is the lovechild of that rhetoric + the opposite side.

what I mean, for instance: when people on tumblr think that EVERYTHING VAGUELY CRITICIZING ISLAM is *islamophobe*, it’s because they grew up in a world where it was americans vs horrid terrorist muslims coded as The Enemy for eight years post sept 11th. someone who doesn’t remember sept 11th has no idea of why muslims are the current Enemy, they just know their country has unchecked hatred towards muslim, and therefore when they have to defend them they go ALL OR NOTHING as well and you read shit which pretty much implies excusing every muslim country that violates human rights or worst saying being islamophobe means being racist when being muslim is a RELIGION and you can’t be racist against religions. anyway, all discourse post-bush jr works like this. tumblr culture reinforced it and sjws are playing into it so naively I wish I was as naive sometimes, but like since this kind of thing brings to extremists and radicalization, a good part of the newer generation grows up with that mentality of US VS THEM and rn it’s EVIL WHITES VS POCS and the likes. now, that The Bad People are equated with the wasp cishet middle aged male is understandable because that’s the most privileged category in the US, but since there’s no nuance there, people have made the horrid mistake of deciding that wasp cishet white middle aged male = ALL *WHITE PEOPLE* whatever white people means.

and as that cracked article I linked last day pointed out (here), it’s not how it works. because again most of these people who can afford to have this Discourse TM (esp if they’re also white) can afford to go to college and have internet and so on and they’re actually in a fairly privileged position because then you don’t see what’s going on outside your city or your college. that being: THERE’S A BUNCH OF *POOR* WHITE PEOPLE IN THE US WHO ARE NOT PRIVILEGED. and that our famous *working class* is currently not doing well and there isn’t someone who seems to cater to them. if trump gets a bunch of votes in midwestern states with high unemployment rates (where SANDERS won the primaries which makes me think people just wanted to vote out of the establishment without looking at the politics because I can’t fathom how someone who votes sanders then might vote for trump in protest) then the problem is waaaay deeper than ALL OF WHITE AMERICA IS RACIST. first the problem is that half of the people didn’t go vote anyway which says all.

but second, the thing is, as I had the misfortune to see with berlusconi here, people who vote for demagogues who cater to the worst part of the electorate don’t necessarily share their more outlandish ideas. like, berlusconi also was a raging sexist and a bunch of women voted for him because ‘he got things done so who cares’ (thing is, he didn’t get things done either but that’s a problem for another day), there’s SOME non-white immigrants (legal, who came here years ago) who support LEGA NORD OUT OF EVERYTHING because *they*, legal migrants, are honest and hardworking but the refugees are all dangerous muslims and they should be thrown out, there’s gay people voting for parties that openly said they loathed the idea of civil unions because other than that they’re right wing and they don’t care to get married - like, it’s complicated and someone who voted trump because it seems like he’s the only candidate who cares about them and not because they’re a raging racist…

like, see, the point is: some people who voted for trump are legit white supremacist/racists/actually voted for him because he’s a racist sexist bigot. with those people you can’t do anything. no, listen, I have a great-aunt who voted right party first, then the neofascists, then berlusconi when the neofascists tried to clean up and move to center positions and now she votes fucking lega nord even if she’s from sicily because she’s so right wing it hurts and she hates gay people and immigrants and so on and after… sixteen years I figured there was no fucking point. those people won’t change their minds unless they’re bitten in the arse directly and maybe not even then. especially if they’re not young. (young people might still be swayed. idk, remember the son of the founder of stormfront who went to his jewish classmate’s dinners bc the latter invited him and he changed his mind? yeah.) but a good part of the rest probably voted trump for other reasons that trumped the fact that he’s a complete joke and absolutely not presentable. now, how about people try to understand why that happened and for the love of god STOP with the ‘if you voted for trump you’re a racist and you’re the problem I won’t talk to you period’? because with that attitude the people who might actually be swayed will just go vote for trump again. and again.

thinking that we were *superior* to berlusconi and assuming his electorate was ridiculous/dumb/would eventually realize he was that shitty and refusing to engage with it was what fucked us over because now we’re filled with people worse than B. who could get that far because B. opened the road and on the opposite side no one caught the discontent. please don’t do the same thing and if your aunt voted for donald trump please make sure she’s like mine and not genuinely misguided before telling her she’s a horrid white supremacist and the root of the problem. the root of the problem is why some people are so desperate that they latched on to an idiot who is obviously lying to them and will damage them more than anyone else, not OMG HALF OF THE US IS WHITE SCUM. first, a quarter of the US since 46% of the people who could didn’t vote. second, a good part of that quarter is white scum, but the other might be sway-able… if you take care to actually talk to them.

otherwise you get trump/pence 2020. if that happens…

like. the american left needs to really take a step back and rethink itself, and people not for trump need to COMMUNICATE WITH THE OTHERS, PROTEST TRUMP WHEN THEY CAN AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON’T PAINT EVERYONE ELSE AS THE DEVIL OR THEY’LL HATE YOU EVEN MORE AND YOU CAN’T GRAB THEM BACK.

and you don’t really want that.

also, I really doubt that the midwestern voters give two fucks about sjws especially if they don’t go too much on the internet or don’t go to college, same as rich assholes who voted trump can’t give two fucks. it’s not the content of the rhetoric. it’s the rhetoric itself.

tldr: in that post about the bush jr era I mentioned, someone who was around in the eighties remembered that back then instead of pushing for the US VS THEM mentality people were encouraged to get pen pals in the USSR to see that we were all the same and there was no need for a cold war. I realize the concept of pen pal here is completely outdated but the idea behind it? I daresay it’s time to unbury it because that might do some good. (not necessarily with russian people but with people you don’t agree with. reasonable ones obviously.) that’s the same idea that the guy who ended up making the stormfront kid rethink his worldview had, maybe if we all tried that it wouldn’t hurt. I mean, you might grab back two people on ten or convince someone else to vote next time. can’t hurt. surely not worse than this idiotic fearmongering has done.

and yes, for the love of god people need to stop feeling offended when someone disagrees with them and actually, like, engage in discussion.

This week was a breath of fresh air, one I sorely needed, when this show thinks violence and treating women like shit are the bee’s knees. And if there are two things this blog loves they are: 1) consensual sex. and 2) sex that is implied effectively to the point that it does not HAVE to be depicted.

WARNING: this review is going to talk a lot about dick, equal opportunity nudity and sex on Game of Thrones. Usual amount of profanity. Also, a lot of Caps Lock. I have a lot of feelings.

STUFF THAT HAPPENED, GINGER OF THE WEEK, THE RETURN OF CUTOUTS AND MORE!
