Oppression is Yucky: Fat myths →
dearjimmoriarty: captainporkerella: Some Fat Facts Golda Poretsky, H.H.C. Body Love Coach: I’ve been fielding lots of comments of the “how can you be promoting fat?!” and “haven’t you heard of type II diabetes?!” variety. So I’ve decided to write this post. I’ve outlined 9 typical statements by… Golda’s on my dash! Probably one of just two or three people I know irl whose appearance on my...
thesavagesalad: tbh with you all, if they ever made a porno adaptation of Sherlock Holmes but it was set in outer space and mid way there was a dance routine choreographed by Will Smith and it all ended with some giant monument dedicated to Lucy Liu’s left foot ACD would still be ok with it Just for the record, I would watch the fuck out of this.
You may marry him, or murder or do [whatever the fuck] you like with him.– Arthur Conan Doyle to William Gillette, on adapting Sherlock Holmes (paraphrase, mine)
Last week at the International Meeting of Black...
White person (bursting through the door): Don't worry everyone; I'm here! Sorry, I got stuck in traffic, but I finally made it. That's right. I'm a white person! Please, hold your applause. I'm here to help you in the fight against racism. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm sincere, caring, and enthusiastic and ready to help in any way I can.
Black woman: Um, well I guess you could start by--
White person: Hey, I've got an idea. Let's all dress up like Trayvon Martin and march down main street! We'll call it "One Million Hoodies" and we can all go out and by Skittles and Arizona Teas and make speeches about white privilege.
Black woman: I don't... I don't think that'd be--
White person: Hey, I noticed one of your pamphlets said "End White Supremacy." First thing's first, we need to change that. I don't know, the phrase "white supremacy" sounds like it might alienate white people. How are we supposed to end racism without white people's help?
Black woman: You know white people created racism, right?
White person: OH THAT IS IT. YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER END RACISM UNTIL YOU LEARN TO BE NICE TO WHITE PEOPLE. HOW DARE YOU BE SO CRUEL TO SOMEONE WHO JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU? I AM SO OUT OF HERE. GOOD LUCK ENDING RACISM WITHOUT ME. YOUR FIGHT IS NOW FUTILE.
Dion: Now watch white people argue with this post and successfully miss the entire point.

On Shipping and Fanboys
patheticfangirl: This is my letter to angry fanboys. First, let it be known that I love most fanboys. When I go to a con, most of the guys there are respectful. They share a passion with me, and that’s awesome. We’re all on a rock floating through space with little connection to most of the people who surround us, so anything that allows us to bond is fantastic. What I don’t love are angry...
Things that go away if you ignore them:
translunar: warts spiders (maybe…) rainy days pets that want to be pet (usually) terrible fads well-kept nails holiday hype commercial breaks Notice how “bullies” and “harassment” are not on this list. Notice how there are no “isms” on this list (racism, sexism, cissexism, etc…). Notice how there are no mental illnesses on this list (depression, eating disorders, etc…). And notice how...

Elijah: All those days of playing "Cup."
Dom: Oh, “Cup!”
Billy: Oh yea!
Sean: “Cup” was fun.
Dom: A fantastic game.
Billy: "Cup," eh, by the way, is where you take a paper cup, and-
Billy: A Dixie cup, if you're American, and-
Dom: Or a paper cup, if you speak English.
Billy: And you, you keep it up, just by passing it to each other. Which sounds quite boring, but if you're waiting for a, uh, a helicopter for four days, it becomes the main way to pass the day.
Dom: I would just like to say here, that it's an original Dominic Monaghan game, available online at my website. Eh, you can use different cups, but if you want, you can log onto my website and get an official “Cup” cup.
Dom: And another game, called “Nudge,” which Billy is a huge fan of. So, if anyone wants me to get involved in game making, I’m available.
Elijah: Speaking of game making, what was the name of the fake game that ya’ll tried to get me into?
Dom: OH! Uh…
Dom: T-t-“tig?” “Tag?”
Sean: That was good!
Elijah: Oh my god!
Billy: And “Tig,” eh, it was when we were filming Weathertop, and myself and Dom just started tiggin’ each other, you know, touchin’ each other and going’ “tig.” Just, like, for no reason! And then Sean came over-
Sean: Slightly different from “Tag.”
Billy: And he came over and started doin’ it as well, “tig.” And then, we’d say “tig tig,” “tig tag,” like, for no reason! And, eh, and then Elijah came over and said “What you guys doin’?” I said “Oh, we’re playing a game, eh, called ‘Tig.’” He says “How do you play?” And we spent, like, the next two hours making up rules!
Elijah: And, and trying to teach me, and of course I was getting everything wrong.
Sean: He couldn’t follow the game, and the three of us were forever frustrated that he wasn’t following these new rules that we would continue to make up.
Dom: So we would play, the three of us were all constantly getting it right. Every time Elijah’d try a new way of tiggin’ someone, we’d say “No, Elijah, you can’t tig on a tog. You can’t tag on a tig. You have to, you have to do an elephant impression if you’re gonna tig Billy. If Billy’s gonna tig you back you have to get on your knees and pull your trousers down.”
Billy: “How many times, Elijah, you can’t double-tig a tag!”
Dom: Yea. And, and for, like, three weeks he was saying how much he enjoyed playing “Tig,” and that he, uh-
Sean: He wanted to get the rule book.
Billy: But you remember that we forgot to say it was a wind-up. And it was, like, a year later, he says “Why do we never play ‘Tig?’”
Elijah: And then they finally let it, let the cat out of the bag. My whole world came shattering down on me when they told me that that was a lie. ‘Cause I, for a whole year, I believed that that was a real game, and then they told me, and I-
Dom: I’m sorry, Elijah.
Billy: Sorry, Elijah.
Elijah: “What else, what else was not true?” That’s what I was asking.
Sean: It undermines the integrity of the entire relationship.
Elijah: That’s what I think.
Dom: It was part of the whole bonding experience.
Billy: Although, me and Dom are actually just lies.
Billy: Big, fat lies.

I somehow ended up listening to EA’s new songs. It’s very strange, because I haven’t listened to her in a year or two, at least but I wanted to hear the new songs. It’s very odd. I don’t like FLAG and most of the others, but Time for Tea, We Want Them Young and One Foot In Front Of The Other are rather good. One Foot In Front Of The Other especially made me teary...
