the best thing about having the house to myself is that I can make breakfast in my underwear
Well, here’s the thing about swords (and all weapons, really), wielding them isn’t about strength. It’s a fallacy perpetrated by games like D&D,...
Ever want to binge watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe but want to do it in chronological order?...
It both amuses and depresses me when I hear huge game and movie studios singing the praises of some miraculous new technology or another, saying how...
I like running. That makes me a runner.
I like knitting. That makes me a knitter.
I like reading. That makes me a reader.
I like playing video games. That makes me a gamer.
I like nerdy stuff. That makes me a nerd.
I identify with my hobbies and my interests because they are important to me. You don’t get to choose what I should call myself. You don’t get to decide if I’m a “real” gamer or a “real” nerd. You can create arbitrary criteria for what makes a person “real” or “fake,” but that has absolutely no bearing on my life whatsoever.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a game to play.
FALSE. Fathers who ask for sole custody are far more likely to get it. It’s just that they don’t ask, mostly women do. Men win custody over women even if they are ostensibly unfit. More and more, judges and parents rule in favor of 50/50 custody. In fact, in the past ten years, the men’s rights movement has been devastating to women seeking custody in court and women are awarded sole custody about half as many times as men.
So find a new fucking myth.
You are not a terrible person if you are not doing LITERALLY EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER to be the very best person you can possibly be.
You are not a terrible person if you fuck up sometimes.
You are not a horrible person if you are not a vegan even if you are aware that conditions in slaughterhouses are terrible. If you can afford to buy food that was raised more humanely, do so when possible and feel good about it. If you can’t afford it, do what you can in other ways.
You are not a horrible person if you aren’t out protesting a war or the horrible things happening in our country. You can write a letter, call a congressman, you can convince people around you, you can vote for candidates who believe as you do. You can live your life in a way that influences things positively without putting yourself in danger. You can support those who do put themselves in danger to protest.
You can give money if you have it to people who can enact change. You can work behind the scenes. You can talk to people. You can get a good education so that you can enact change when you’re older or earn money to help others enact change.
If you’re not willing to give up every penny you make and every minute of free time you have for a cause you believe in, do not shame others for not working as strongly at whatever cause you have. There’s a lot of worthy causes in the world. YOU WOULD GO CRAZY TRYING TO DEVOTE YOURSELF TO ALL OF THEM.
Caring about something is GREAT. Caring about several things is GREAT. Making sure you are trying to live your life in a way that is as least harmful and most helpful to others is REALLY SUPER GREAT and I hope everyone is doing it all the time.
But do not intrude in the free time of others and tell them that they’re terrible and don’t care about whatever issue(s) you care about. Because you don’t know what they may do to support that cause. Or another important cause they might devote their time and energy to.
Don’t fucking reblog untagged, triggering pictures of gore. Especially don’t do it with a sanctimonious message about how the reader “isn’t paying attention” or doesn’t care about racism, homophobia, animals, people and a huge variety of other issues if you’re not spending every minute of your OWN TIME and every penny of your own money doing everything you can about every one of those issues. Hey, even then don’t do it because YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE OR AREN’T DOING IN THEIR OWN LIVES.
Stop telling people who’s lives you’re not involved in that they’re shitty in general, sanctimonious ways. Stop guilting people you don’t know.
Stop letting yourself be guilted by these posts on tumblr that tell you you’re terrible if you don’t reblog them. Have some confidence in your life that you’re trying to make things better and hey, check yourself and make sure you’re doing what you can to curb your own racism, sexism, homophobia, animal cruelty, and harm to our planet in general. Don’t let tumblr tell you you’re terrible. Don’t let some post on the internet make you think you’re a shitty person or make you want to tell other people they’re shitty when you have no idea what their lives are about.
If you see someone being specifically shitty about something, yes, call them out. But trying to tell people they don’t care about racism, or sexism, or homophobia, or animal cruelty, or conditions in other parts of the world by shocking them with gore by reblogging a post on tumblr. It’s hypocritical, childish, and really fucking insulting.
my family got me a vibrating toothbrush that i can most definitely use to masturbate and finally get off gdi but the only problem here is that it’s got mike wasowskis face on it and i don’t know if im ready for that level of commitment
i did it. i did it and i hate myself.
