I like how “how” becomes “5 hour energy.”
I hate on bad ideas.
Livin' the dream, nah?
Be aware: I like to keep arguments to a couple posts, not many.

I heard about the recent Supreme Court decision on Michigan’s, well let’s just be pedantic, “Michigan Civil Rights Initiative.” I don’t talk much about race on this blog. I support Affirmative Action, as I’ve read about it, simply for the reason that I’ve seen compelling evidence it helps people and not seen compelling evidence it hurts people. But this is a matter of the law and how ethically right “discrimination” is as a concept in its broadest possible form. I’ve been tossing a couple ideas around in my head, but mostly confusion.
I just recently discovered this facebook post. Depicted is a naked Adam Levine, the lead singer of Maroon 5, with his penis covered only by the hands of his girlfriend. The picture was part of the “Everyman” campaign, which was meant to raise awareness for testicular and prostate cancer.
If we go to the comments, we see that there’s been a great deal of controversy. Over what, you might ask? Well, apparently, some of the comments seem to believe that it’s a bad sign that Adam’s genitals can be covered with only one hand.
Obviously these people don’t seem to understand the fact that every set of genitals is different. Those of us who happen to have penises do not always have them hanging down our pant leg at all times. The difference can basically be summed up in two words: “growers” and “showers”.
Now, I’ve often heard that the reason breast cancer gets so much more funding is due to the objectification of women’s bodies in the process. But here we have a pretty blatant example of the same thing being done for prostate cancer. Yet there’s no increase in funding.
And yet, we all know that if this had been a woman posing for a breast cancer campaign, and somebody had commented that the person’s “tits must be small to only need one hand to cover em”, there would’ve been outrage. Hell, Feminists might’ve gotten whoever said it fired if they caught wind of it.
But this? Apparently not. I didn’t even know this had happened until today. And this was posted almost a year ago.
That photo doesn’t even show small genitals. The one-handed thing is her reaching from behind him with her arm extended down between his legs… she’s pulling it back. Plus, as the top commenter put it (who is a woman), “all the women saying ‘oh she can cover it with one hand… it must be SO SMALL’….. isn’t married or doesn’t have a man they are very close to and intimate with.”
I’m not really sure how I feel about the ad campaign. Getting naked doesn’t help to show the prostate in the same way for example these ads show the breasts. On the other hand, if that’s what everyone is doing nowadays…
Why is it that evil villains always find poison to inject into their victims like just literally fill the syringe with air and just stick the needle between their toes or something. It’ll mimic a heart attack and the victim will die pretty quick and NO ONE WILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT’LL LOOK LIKE A HEART ATTACK
first of all how do you know this information i feel like the government doesnt want you to know that
Air isn’t a very good poison. First this assumes your villain is trained in medicine and knows how to properly inject something directly into an artery (a vein could be deadly, but with your little syringe you’d need to be pumping it in at least 20 times… and forget about just throwing it into any old muscle or fat tissue). Air can be very deadly, but it’s also unreliable as a poison. If you introduce a particle or mass, you don’t know where it’ll end up. And lastly, this is just a guess, but air isn’t the same type of fluid as blood, so it may be difficult to inject on purpose.
It’s really weird how SJWs hate their allies more than their oppressors. I mean it’s sad how there’s people in government actively fighting to prevent gay people from getting married but yet all we get is thousands of posts about how Macklemore is icky. What gives?
how about instead of complaining about shit like this, use your privilege to actually help people
Why should I? Honest question.
are you actually asking me why you should help oppressed people
Yes. It’s interesting how SJWs lash out at their oppressors but then also get mad at their allies for supporting their cause. Like, why should people even give a shit about your cause? Privileged people are going to get shit on either way so why put in the effort to help out a cause when they know they’re unwanted and allegedly unneeded AND they’re going to be subject to bullying for doing so? Please tell me why I should care about any of this when there’s no incentive for me and it won’t improve my own life at all. I’m just playing devil’s advocate here but I want a real answer from a tumblr user.
Trillslut asking the real questions though…
I enjoy the fact that they are discussing Macklemore hate - which is a person using privilege and notoriety to help people and spread important messages. And then this other person comes in and complains that OP is not using their privilege to help people. They are actively questioning why people hate when people do that thing, and then get told off for not doing it.
This is also a classic example of avoiding the question, and certain responsibilities.
There’s this assumption, thanks largely to the ideas of radical feminism passed through the SJ sphere, that everyone of the “oppressor group” is born with this blood on their hands, that the instant they just “learn to see” it, they’ll instantly break down in guilt and do anything they can to get rid of it.
But that’s not how humans work. (With the possible exception of certain religions, though they pretty much toss in the smorgasbord of mind games.)
Ultimately if I support feminism, or the civil rights movement, or in this case the LGBT movement, and if I’m not a woman, or person of color, or queer, then I’m helping other people. I do that because I feel the cause is just.
And for me to feel that cause is just, I have to believe there aren’t major fundamental problems with the ideology or its supporters.
I don’t even have to agree with everything they say, and I’ll probably jump on board before learning most of it. I just have to think my actions are helping good people. And that’s three criteria right there (helping good people, admittedly the third is pretty trivial). If I start to lose confidence in any of these because of the actions or words of the people I’m following, that’s their responsibility to fix. It’s their responsibility either as the people who caused the distrust, or as leaders looking to guide others to a better world.
And I’m sorry, but while “Why should I? Honest question.” isn’t being a pleasant fighter for equality, “[don’t] complain about shit like this” is also denying that role as a leader, and not fighting for the cause. I don’t mean like “you’re not helping right now,” I mean like “you are lacking a place in your own movement.”
Anonymous asked: Stoppity is a transphobic shitbag so it wouldnt be surprising if their friend was, too. None of those heterophobia posts are anything but responses to transphobia/queerphobia, the rest are jokes that don't affect your daily life because you're never going to get any harm from being cis or het ever.
LOL Well I’m not heterosexual so you can just shut your whore mouth right now.
"Never going to get any harm from being cis or het ever"
Just a correction, that’s 2% of hate crimes due to a sexual-orientation bias, which is about 20% of all hate crimes reported for 2012. (For comparison, this is still higher than the number of documented victims of anti-physical-disability crimes or anti-atheist crimes, though I’m surprised by those numbers to say the least).
Since transphobia is mentioned I’m a little skeptical of the FBI for not including hate crimes against trans people. I wonder if they’re integrated into the homosexual category (even though they might not be).
