Stuff and Things

I have this to say, and then I’m done. In fact, I’m logging out of tumblr for a while, because I just can’t.

Ahem.

There was no “questionable consent” in “Breaker of Chains”. There was nothing remotely ambiguous about that scene. Jaime raped Cersei. Whatever else you may think about the episode or the show or the question of whether or not this qualifies as character derailment, the fact that he raped her is not up for discussion. If you think it is at all debatable, you are dead wrong. Not only are you wrong, you are irresponsibly wrong. There is already a huge population of men in the world who have committed rape and who don’t understand that they have committed rape. Anyone who argues the ambiguity of such a blatantly unambiguous depiction of rape is only doing more damage, further adding to the psychological sludge we have to wade through in order to create a world where people understand what consent does and does not look like. We already live in a cultural environment filled with toxic misconceptions of consent, conditioned to look skeptically on any accusation of non-consensual behavior. Don’t make it worse.

End of song.

I’m so sick and tired of people promoting fat acceptance. “Society” tells you you’re never going to be good enough. But being overweight (and this goes for people with eating disorders who are underweight as well) is a HEALTH PROBLEM.You’re not born fat-you choose to be overweight. Exercise and eat healthier- NOT because “Society” thinks you’re ugly- but because you will live a longer, healthier life!

Dear Troll:

Before spouting your “everyone knows”, no evidence, not science, not helpful advice in blog spaces where your input was neither asked for nor welcomed, I very strongly suggest that you actually read the material presented in said blog.

In case your attention span is so painfully short that you can’t possibly make it through more than a single entry, or that your research skills are akin to the average 5 year old’s - here are a few select bits of reading that you really should try to make it through, because - well, not only are you inapprorpriate, you’re wrong.

http://www.nutritionj.com/content/10/1/9  - “Randomized controlled clinical trials indicate that a HAES approach is associated with statistically and clinically relevant improvements in physiological measures (e.g., blood pressure, blood lipids), health behaviors (e.g., eating and activity habits, dietary quality), and psychosocial outcomes (such as self-esteem and body image), and that HAES achieves these health outcomes more successfully than weight loss treatment and without the contraindications associated with a weight focus.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/02/health/study-suggests-lower-death-risk-for-the-overweight.html?hp&_r=1& - “The report on nearly three million people found that those whose B.M.I. ranked them as overweight had less risk of dying than people of normal weight. And while obese people had a greater mortality risk over all, those at the lowest obesity level (B.M.I. of 30 to 34.9) were not more likely to die than normal-weight people.”

http://healthland.time.com/2012/09/05/can-you-be-fat-and-fit-or-thin-and-unhealthy/ - “In a new study by U.S. and European researchers, published [PDF] in the European Heart Journal, overweight and obese people were found to be at no greater risk of developing or dying from heart disease or cancer, compared with normal weight people, as long as they were metabolically fit despite their excess weight.”

Yours with actual thought,

~M

I really want a science fiction story where aliens come to invade earth and effortlessly wipe out humanity, only to be fought off by the wildlife.

They were expecting military resistance. They weren’t counting on bears.

Rachel, I know you’re badass and all, but how long have you spent in that morph that you’re able to get your bear body to do that crazy footwork. That is impressive, homegirl.

Notice how if we were to stop arguing about who’s right or wrong we could pretty much change the world.

an ye harm none do what you will

Human beings are fundamentally social creatures. Perhaps this begins, evolutionarily, at the herd instinct natural to many mammals for the purpose of survival. Strength in numbers. But even in numbers, humans are not well physically suited to survival in the wild. The reason we’ve been able to continue surviving for this long is because our brains developed into incredibly sophisticated machines capable of compensating for the relative weakness of the rest of our bodies. An integral part of that development involved the ability to not only think on a higher level, but to communicate those thoughts to each other. This development of our brains extended so far that simply communicating necessary survival information failed to stimulate, especially as we became increasingly masters of our environments. (Relatively speaking, of course; we are still and always will be somewhat at the mercy of the powers of nature) We crave human interaction beyond the utilitarian need for it. Even if one is somehow able to distance oneself from the rest of humanity and survive in the wilderness, I believe one will always feel an emptiness only fulfilled by the companionship of another human mind with which to interact. We don’t need the brain-power nature (or god, or what you will) has given to us in order to be able to physically survive in the world—we could do that with far less than what we have. And yet we have what we have, and our inherently powerful psyches reach out for contact with other powerful psyches. That is why the injunction to be good to each other is the only objective human law of morality: because if we are not good to others, others will not wish to connect with us, and the desire to connect with other humans is hard-wired into our system, something essential to our being on a bio-chemical level.

That was a scientific explanation, rather than a religious one—It is the train of logic my own mind followed to reach the conclusion—but here is where science and religion meet, at their fundamental purpose: the further illumination of how the universe operates. This idea of treating others well is instinctive to the human mind, a basic element of the way we have evolved, and that is why the idea is found in every philosophy and every culture from around the world and through time. We view the universe through different perspectives, but we all respond to the same basic things.

"nope"

- everyone

Excellent gifset. Six different ways to “nope”:

"Aw hell naw, I’m outta here!"

"You really wanna go there, boy?"

"I will step on you."

*screaming internally*

"This is my judging-you face."

and

"Um, I beg your fucking pardon?"

Oh my god

So Marvel Studios/Disney and 20th Century Fox both get the rights to use Quicksilver. But only Fox is allowed to call him a “mutant”, or include his relationships to other mutants, for example his father. They have that opportunity, and yet in DoFP they don’t make him Magneto’s son at all?

Jesus christmas, is it any wonder that Marvel is kicking everyone else’s butts all over the map when it comes to superhero movies?

(Don’t get me wrong, I’m still totally stoked for DoFP, but I know it’s going to be a mixed bag…)

Look at her expression. She has no fear.

Probably because that’s Li Thi Van playing the role of “Village Chief’s Daughter” in the feature film Platoon and the man holding a gun to her head would be William Dafoe, AKA the Green Goblin in Spider-Man

I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD THIS WEBSITE

UM EXCUSE ME THAT IS NOT WILLEM DAFOE IN THAT PICTURE IT IS TOM BERENGER. WILLEM DAFOE PLAYS THE NICE SERGEANT, TOM BERENGER PLAYS THE EVIL SERGEANT. YOU CAN TELL BECAUSE HE HAS THE EVIL SCARS. WHAT CAN I SAY, PLATOON IS NOT A TERRIBLY ORIGINAL FILM.
AHEM.

Stop faking your fucking orgasms. Society already tells young men that they run the fucking universe - if they can’t turn your cunt into a shooting star then for god’s sake, let them know about it.

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)
