I’m genuinely tired of this boogeyman that certain supporters of feminism on tumblr have created of the person that disagrees with their ideals, which is that of the “obese, neck-bearded, fedora-wearing, unwashed ‘mens rights activist.’”
All they’re doing is cutting off people from ever taking their arguments seriously. How does one expect to argue for something as serious as equal rights when instead of discussing and debating facts, you come off as hostile, call them names and make ad hominem attacks?
It just boggles my mind that they throw out these insults, and then turn right around and wonder why almost no one wants to support their cause.
All these types of users do is reaffirm my personal belief that some subjects (mainly religion and politics as well as sexuality) just should not be discussed on the Internet because the vast majority of users on either side of the debate for any such “hot-button” topics are flat-out not ready to discuss it in an orderly and mature fashion.
Instead, these certain users just want to mock people they don’t see eye-to-eye with as a way to boost up their own ego, while setting up an echo chamber in which they can circle jerk each other to their own set of one-sided opinions. Which is rather disappointing, since I really do enjoy a good, cool-headed debate about the aspect of equal rights for everyone… but they seem to be in short supply these days.
Everything that happens in Teen Wolf as we see are based are Scott’s POV with minor variations. Sometimes we focus on other people yes, but the main point is centered around Scott. Yes there are other main characters, BUT THE WHOLE SHOW IS BASED AROUND SCOTT AND HIS EXPERIENCES. If Stiles were the main character and was being pushed aside for the benefit of Scott you’d all be in a frenzy get off your high horse.
Let me prove this to you:
Peter/Derek/Hale family-we all of this when SCOTT is turned into a werewolf
Cora being found alive- SCOTT WAS THERE REMEMBER WHEN HE WAS IN THE VAULT TOO
Boyd/Erica/Isaac-SCOTT finds out that Derek has been turning his classmates into werewolves and tried to stop him.
Jackson being the Kanima-We solve this problem through the work of SCOTT
The Alphas come to BH-FOR SCOTT (not Derek, not Stiles, Scott, true alpha. Scott Mccall.)
Darach/Alphas- This drama is sovled by again, wait for it, SCOTT
so i heard Supernatural has a gif for everything!!!
what about… M&M’s??
It’s so beautiful that you don’t want to eat it…
And that’s why I would cry too.
THAT PIE IS BEAUTIFUL
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
YOU CAN SEE CHRIS’ EYES
YES YES PEOPLE WERE GETTING SO MAD ABOUT CHRIS NOT APPEARING HERE/NOT WANTING TO BE IN THE 50TH BUT THEY DID THIS HERE. THEY DID THIS FOR US AND IF YOU CAN’T SEE CHRISTOPHER ECCELSTON IN THAT SECOND GIF YOU’RE NOT LOOKING HARD ENOUGH
Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
FINALLY SOMEONE FUCKING SAYS IT
Ok, so every time I see a photo of the Criminal Minds cast on my pinboard, they always look super fun and kooky.
I may just start watching the show :s
Oh and Shemar Moore *dribble*
