This is what happens when you ask people to draw a map of the USA from memory.
I’ll have what the last person is having.
ah yes, the three most historically important revolutions. the russian, french, and dance dance
i’m that friend that has to walk behind the others when the sidewalk doesn’t fit a group of three
I think about this post a lot
I hated that. I knew I had good friends when we rotated.
my mom and I got into an argument one time and then we started getting really emotional and she said “Obama means family” and I swear I never cried so hard in my life
WAIT IT’S SUPPOSED TO SAY OHANA NOT OBAMA THE PRESIDENT ISN’T PULLING MY FAMILY TOGETHER
I though they were tears of laughter.
There are most certainly labels that should require strict qualifications before you can use them as an identifier. Doctor, lawyer, professor, blowfish chef. If you aren’t a Time Lord or haven’t gone to medical school, you should not be calling yourself a doctor.
And I will agree that people shouldn’t misrepresent themselves because they think it will help them fit in or seem cool. For a long time I told people I was 1/64th wombat so they would like me more and excuse my extra furry parts. But looking back, I didn’t need to be a wombat to fit in. People liked me just fine as I was.
That said, there are some labels that should not require extensive qualifications or an interrogation. I’m agnostic. Do I really have to prove that I am skeptical about the existence of a deity? Will I get my agnostic card revoked if I enjoy Jesus Christ Superstar? I own several bibles too. I’ve even read large bits of them. Whenever I stub my toe I call out the lord’s name. I also follow like 6 of the 10 commandments.
The truly offensive part of this is that if a male says they are a gamer, they are not questioned. It is just accepted. Not once have I ever had to prove myself. You don’t need to show how many hours you logged playing Call of Duty. You don’t need all the achievements in Assassin’s Creed. (I’m never going to find all those goddamn flags.) You just have to identify as male and a gamer and you’re in the club.
If you enjoy playing video games, you are a gamer. And even if you feel someone is not as gamer-y as you, it doesn’t really matter. It has no effect on your love of video games.
Women play video games. They are gamers. I know some that are quite passionate about them. They write fanfiction, create mods, and spend hours fashioning elaborate cosplay. Frankly, they put my gamer-ness to shame. But not once have they ever accused me of not being gamer enough. I think if male gamers like this fellow keep this attitude, there will be very little interaction with their lifestyle’s or actual dick.
This girl that was writing everyones grades wrote 47 for my final grade but the teacher thought it was a 97
And thats the story of how i passed Chemistry
Nowadays the princesses all know kung fu, and yet they’re still the same princesses. They’re still love interests, still the one girl in a team of five boys, and they’re all kind of the same. They march on screen, punch someone to show how they don’t take no shit, throw around a couple of one-liners or forcibly kiss someone because getting consent is for wimps, and then with ladylike discretion they back out of the narrative’s way.
On the posters they’re posed way in the back of the shot behind the men, in the trailers they may pout or smile or kick things, but they remain silent. Their strength lets them, briefly, dominate bystanders but never dominate the plot. It’s an anodyne, a sop, a Trojan Horse - it’s there to distract and confuse you, so you forget to ask for more.
