I do not fucking understand how anyone can continue to deny the fact that the brains of those who commit crime and assault are biologically, functionally different from the average human being. This has been studied for over a century. There are entire books on the subject, and thousands upon thousands of CAT scans graphically showing exactly how and where the brain is not functioning properly in such individuals. They are thus given the ability to transcend the barrier of right and wrong. It is then their upbringing (or basically whatever influences they are given at their most impressionable stages of life) that determines whether or not they may feel compelled to choose to cross that line. No amount of “jokes” are going to cause the lack of function necessary for a person to willfully commit crime, nor are they going to negate whatever abuse they may have suffered at a young age. Also, no amount of laws are going to stop such people from engaging in acts of assault. They know that what they’re doing is wrong. They just don’t fucking care. Those same regions of the brain are responsible for human empathy: a lack of which disconnects a person’s actions from reality.
Honestly, I think people just want an easy scapegoat to blame for their own failings. “I can’t get a date? ALL MEN ARE SCUM!” Or (and this is just an idea), maybe you’re just completely fucking obnoxious. If you’re going to apply the possibility in committing rape to every man on the planet (which is over three billion people), then you might as well stick to other stereotypes as well. No more complaining about “women driver” jokes, ladies. No more whining when someone asks you if you’re on the rag because you’re acting moody. If you are seriously going to consider every male a potential rapist, just go right the fuck ahead and blame all black people for crime, assume all Italians have connections to the mob, assume all Irish and Russian people are alcoholics, and assume that all gay men have AIDS, because it’s just that fucking stupid, offensive, and socially harmful.

Two more roundabouts that are poorly labeled and placed along a curve?
Thank you, city. This is exactly what I always wanted. I wasn’t wasting nearly enough gas getting turned around ass-backwards these days.

I want to market scented knit gloves. Like, they smell like strawberries, or oranges, or what have you.
I would call them: “Stink Mittens”.
This has nothing to do with anything. I’m just highly entertained by the term “stink mittens”.
I still cannot get over the people that claim that women are so “oppressed”, and that there’s no such thing as “female privilege”.
Earlier today on my way into Biolife, I went to hold a door open for a guy behind me (as I was raised to believe is common courtesy for all human beings), and he was just having none of it. Wouldn’t go through the door, and insisted I go first. Did the same thing at the second door, too.
I’ve cried my way out of a speeding ticket. Twice.
I also cried my way into getting the 18” Freddy Krueger figure that now stands proudly in a display case in my room.
The entire world comes to a halt when a woman cries, but if a guy shows emotion, we shame the ever-lovin’ fuck out of them just for being human, and they say there’s no such thing as female privilege? Bullshit.

willyliberteen: Ever heard of "The Thing that Drifted Ashore"?
Oh, hell yeah! That’s one of Junji Ito’s short stories (not his best, but still pretty damn creepy). Of course, it may effect me more than others, since I’ve got that thing about deep water (and things in the deep water).
For anyone that might want to read it, you can find it in full here.
fluttershyismywaifu: wow you play ffxi? what server?
Cerberus. Sadly, the game overall isn’t as populated as it once was.
But, at least I lifted another level cap on my Adventuring Fellow yesterday, so now she can get to level 85 (their highest cap is now 99).
maniacaltoaster: Wait, you mean the "Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” That... wasn't racist. It was an angry reference to the guy owning the Redskins football team who made up a foundation called something like Original Americans Foundation. (Taking away the title Native American) Which as Stephen said "Which must've been fine. 'cause I haven't heard shit about it." I was actually furious with the morons who made #cancelcolbert, because they couldn't do basic research.
It doesn’t matter if you didn’t find it racist; numerous East Asian people did. That’s what matters.
Then they didn’t pay attention to current events. With Colbert’s Twitter, that’s kinda a crucial thing to do so you don’t look like a complete idiot. Which these people look like.
… what the fuck, you don’t get to decide whether something we find offensive was legitimate or not.
Oh I get it now. So because you found it offensive, every single other Asian person out there must find it offensive. I forgot all Asians are a hive-mind.
Normally I’d be saying someone needs to be more careful with what they say, but look at the freaking name of the made up organization. That’s as obvious as you can get with satire.
…Are they not aware that it was the very idea of racism itself that was being mocked? There is a tremendous difference between someone kicking a puppy, and someone else kicking the person who kicked the puppy. The original statement was giving an example of horribly racist behavior to make a point about racism. Besides that, even a good chunk of the Asian community was mocking Suey Park for blowing it out of proportion. A group of Taiwanese animators even made this animation in response to the whole thing.
And then, of course, there are the responses from the people that the joke was actually intending to stand up for:
This not the Oppression Olympics. It is not a fucking contest to see who is the most persecuted, and you can also stop trying to speak for others who are perfectly capable of speaking for themselves.
Your opinion is not everyone’s opinion. Your feelings are not everyone’s feelings. It’s just a shame tumblr can’t seem to get that idea through their thick little skulls.
