Have my in-jokes you won't get

My name is Ste and this is the tumblog of a 26 year old geek. How rare!

I'll be dumping stuff about the various shows, games and comedy I enjoy in here. I've also taken to giffing recently, so anything I make will pop up here as well!

  • me: ...? um, no, sorry, he's an asshole.
  • my sister: no, no, no, gaston is a 'nice guy'. think about it. he spends the whole beginning of the movie trying to be friendly to belle. everyone else in that town thinks she's a bookish freak with a crazy man for a father, but gaston like, talks to her and sort of tries to take an interest in her activities and compliments her and stuff with the complete 100% expectation that she's going to pay him back by being in a relationship with him. he tunes out what she actually says because he doesn't really think of her as a person, just a pretty trophy who should react to him the right way if he does the right things.
  • me: huh
  • my sister: and then when she hooks up with someone else, he gets all angry and shouty and insists that this other guy is a monster and she's lost her damn mind because she was supposed to fall for HIM, not someone else, and then he goes and stirs up the townsfolk into an angry mob and turns the whole thing into a witch hunt over his wounded pride.

Did you know the sun rose in the east and will set in the west? Or that water is wet? Or that little shits will be little shits even if you give them millions of dollars to make a movie? This person is also vv upset that Benetton and Star Trek had the sheer gaul to cast people of color in their respective media. 

I cannot even begin to fathom the wrongness of this

From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise. You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, ‘Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.’ Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, ‘Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?’ That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.” - From the Complex article. 

Colorblindness always seems to equate not having anyone of color involved in casting. Therefore race does matter. It matters enough to exclude anyone that isn’t white.

They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people.

White people can’t be a stand-in for other races, it reeks of erasure.

Also, if they were going to eliminate the aspect of race by sticking to one ethnicity, surely they should have gone middle eastern? Funny how bible adaptations always star white folk.

I enjoyed the new Captain America movie quite a bit. But I knew its soundtrack was missing something.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hello! What is that (i don't know if it's a literary device or not) thing of writing where you deny something by over explaining it? It is used a lot in the podcast 'Welcome to Nightvale'. Like if you say 'there is nothing there. There is definitely not a green bottle that i stole from my mother when she was out of the house.' Or something like that.

It can be considered sarcasm or reverse psychology in some situations, but if there is a name for this, I can’t figure out what it is.

I believe that trope is called the ‘Suspiciously Specific Denial’. Or at least, very closely related to it.


This would incite me to murder.

writing adult emails is awful

its like

hi [name of person], 

this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student. 

I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.

Chivalry is dead and feminism killed it.


Chivalry is an outdated, archaic social code built on the infantilazation of white women and the dehumanization and erasure of women of color. 

Maybe worry less about emulating idealized notions of medieval knighthood ethics, and focus more on just being a polite person, yeah?

There is a bathroom here at uni that every year I here had some of the best graffiti I’ve ever seen. The first year I was here it was “They say it isn’t ethical to put hidden cameras in the toilet, but I did. For science!” The next year there was a sticker about teen suicide and the rather black humored line “What do you want me to do about it? I’ve already not killed myself.” The strangest thing about it is the writing it very close to my own and the joke is very like I would make. It gave me a moment of confusion as to weather I wrote it or not. And then this year there is a debate about animal testing with the lines, “Ask the children of Thalidomide about not having animal testing.” And the reply “Thalidomide was tested on animals, the long term effects were not just not studied.”
