ughhh. A brief, barely coherent rant of mine has been reblogged again. GUYS STOP. SERIOUSLY. If you want to reblog it and complain about me, at least fucking read what I fucking said. Apparently explaining the premise meant that I think men should be able to look at porn in public.
Apparently me complaining about woman who think that EVERY woman wants porn to be illegal and thinks that EVERY woman should agree with them means that I am “Shaming woman who are triggered by porn”.
Fuck. GUYS. READ.
Pewdiepie makes more money than a doctor
A hardworking 12 hour shift doctor
Unless you’ve actually TRIED making gaming videos for people on a regular basis you have no right to judge how much money he makes doing what he does.
If you’re saying that pewdiepie deserves more money making rape jokes and screaming into a camera rather than a man trying to save lives every day, you need to go fuck yourself.
what doctor? from where? Not all doctors are trying to save lives. A dermatologist isn’t really “saving lives” most of the time. They’re a doctor. Not talking about how much money he is making, or whether that is right or wrong, but people do have a right to work and make money.
He has found a way to make money that suits him. That’s all it is. Sure, his jokes may not be funny, whatever. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a right to try and do whatever he wants to make money, as long as it doesn’t break the law or whatever. (bad comedians exist and that is okay, just don’t fucking watch them. If something offends you impersonally, avoid it. If it is offending you personally, destroy it.)
FEMINISM vs. JOKES
DICK JOKES ARE NOT WHAT STOPS WOMAN FROM ENTERING THE IT INDUSTRY. TRUST ME.
(omg “THE LITTLE GIRL WILL BE SCARED OFF” or something no you know how we get more girls into IT, we fucking teach it at fucking all girls schools THERE WAS ONE IT SUBJECT IN VCE FOR ME. IT WAS MULTIMEDIA. AND ARTSY. there are like three or four other subjects the school could have had BUT NO.) ((also building like support networks I guess if you’re one of those woman who can’t handle having not woman friends I mean my uni has a woman in ICT group but I dont go because I don’t feel the need to sit around with woman and discuss how hard it is to look pretty in ict whiel men are expecting you to be nerdy or some shit but if you want to go that is great and it is great that it exists. Basically support and let’s stop woman from telling other woman that “IT is hard” and discouraging friends/daughters/etc from going into it it’s really horrid)
You don’t ever want to have kids = okay
You don’t ever want to be in a caregiver role with children (including babysitting) = okay
You don’t think other people should have children = NOT okay
You don’t think other people should have “too many” children = NOT okay
You don’t ever want to see children in public = NOT okay
You don’t ever want to see pictures of children on Facebook or other parts of the internet (and like mocking people who post those pictures) = NOT okay
You think children should always be quiet and/or perfectly behaved in public = NOT okay
You talk about how awful, terrible, or otherwise bad kids are, call them names, are otherwise venomous in your language about kids = NOT okay
(By children I mean anyone from newborn until puberty. Teens fall into a different category and face different attitudes, as a general rule.)
If anyone has more things to add to this list, please do!
I really don’t like this list. You say “think”. I don’t think people should have children, both specifically and otherwise. I genuinely cannot imagine wanting children. Pregnancy disgusts me. am I telling people not to have kids? no. am I stopping people from having kids? no. Why are my thoughts hurting you? Yes children should be well behaved in public. If a child steals my bag or starts pulling on my hair/jewelry/etc, I have a right to be upset.
And in my own personal life, with people I know, I am allowed to talk about how terrible kids are, both specifically referring to children I know, and in general. I don’t *like* children. that is okay.
What I can’t do? go up to people and berate them for having children/too many children/etc, or tell children how awful they are personally. I can’t go up to random people and start talking about how all children are awful, just like how you can’t go up to people and tell them that x religion is awful, or x politician is awful. It isn’t polite.
But you cannot say that my thoughts, opinions, and my language (with people who understand my feelings xor agree with them) are not okay. I cannot change my thoughts. I cannot change my disgust at pregnancy. If I could be okay with pregnancy, I would be. It isn’t a choice that I can’t understand children or change my language to talk to them or be tolerant of behaviors like stealing or breaking objects “because they’re young”.
You can’t say that things I don’t have control over are “not okay”.
if there is one thing I can’t stand it is my mother ranting about how awful Giles is. Putting this under a read more because it will be long and ranty and horrible
I hate word limits.
basically, for one of my subjects, we have to write a “game critique” on any game, digital or analogue or whatever. By critique I mean analysis, for example, I’m going to write on either the corruption of society reflected by the corruption of sanity in American McGee’s Alice, or on the lack of knowledge of plot in the game, without the book of notes that came with it. So it’s like, literatureish.
However, it is limited to 500 words.
I could write 2000. But no, 500. If we write more then 540-550, we start losing marks.
