1. To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:

    thejadedkiwano:

    Let’s play a game.

    Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

    you

    also

    what

    when

    why

    how

    look

    because

    never

    I don’t entirely understand this game.

    Ignoring the word itself, which is almost always the first automatic tag that comes up, since that seems to be beside the point that I’m guessing is trying to be made:

    you = ‘youtube’; also = ‘but also’; what = ‘what’ (the *first* tag is ‘wha’); when = ‘why’d you only call me when you’re high’ (okay, that one is WTF); why = ‘why me’; how = ‘how i met your mother’; look = ‘lookbook’; because = ‘because the internet’; never = ‘nevergiveup’

    Would someone now like to explain to me what this was meant to prove?

    IM JEALOUS OF COUNTRIES THAT TEACH LANGUAGES TO CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE SO BY THE TIME THEYRE LIKE 18 THEYRE BILINGUAL . IN MY ELEVEN YEARS OF AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOLING I CAN NAME YOU LIKE 5 COLORS IN SPANISH

    i’m a 14 years old argentinian girl and i run a blog in english

    literally everyone in America hates the American education system and has thousands of ideas for how to make it better but nothing ever fucking changes 

    Wrong.  It gets worse.

    The American education system has not been interested in educating its inmates since there even was an educational <i>system</i>. The American education system is designed solely to produce good, obedient, docile factory workers who show up on time, can follow directions, and have <i>just enough</i> general knowledge to potentially get promoted to lower-to-middle management. Languages and learning how to think rather than regurgitating facts are for the elite who can afford private schools that, in their turn, used to at least teach noblesse oblige, but have cancelled those classes in favor of neoliberal economics.

    Capitalism, yo.

    Do you ever see something someone posted, and you’re just like NO YOU ARE WRONG but you think to yourself, “This isn’t the hill I want to die on” so you have to let it go?

  5. Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.

  10. ok, but what if:

    agelfeygelach:

    fantasy world where orcs were bred from other humanoids (elves or humans or whatever) not as brutal warriors, but because the entities breeding them liked the flat-faced, tusk-jawed brachycephalic look as much as humans like bulldogs and persian cats.

    so there’s strange magical overlord entities who walk among their orc minions and coo about how adorable and smooshy-faced they are.
