I look at it as the social equivalent of a allergy. Let’s assume for a moment that they genuinely do wish to fight social injustices. In this way, I liken them to the immune system. Now yes, there is are problems. Cases of racism and sexism do exist. But their response is ridiculously overaggressive and completely out-of-proportion with the threat to such a degree that their reaction is harmful itself, sometimes even far more harmful than the problem it seeks to address.
You know how some people joke on the internet about killing a spider by burning their house down?
That’s kinda what tumblr’s social justice is. Except they would go around burning other people’s houses down just to be safe.
Completely agreed. lol
One of the worst things I've seen on here is when GIFs surfaced of Conchita Wurst performing on Eurovision and someone was like "Guys an actual genderqueer person won the Eurovision how awesome is that?" and then when people responded, correctly, that Conchita is a drag act and the person behind it is quite happy being a male in every day life and a whole shitstorm of "genderqueer erasure" started.
For fuck’s sake. I don’t get the whole drag queen thing, but if it makes someone happy why do I care, you know? I think legitimate trans/non-binary wouldn’t actually care about them.
The worst Ebola outbreak in history has put a number of countries in West Africa in lockdown, led to the deaths of nearly 700 people since February and brought new reports of doctors, including Americans, contracting the virus they are attempting to contain. The situation is undeniably scary. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Ebola?
Ebola viral disease is a highly infectious illness with fatality rates up to 90 percent, according to the U.N. World Health Organization. Symptoms initially include a sudden fever as well as joint and muscle aches and then typically progress to vomiting, diarrhea and, in some cases, internal and external bleeding — you can see a full, grim description of symptoms compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) here.
The virus spreads through contact with bodily fluids of someone who is infected. Reports of human infections usually first emerge in remote areas that are in proximity to tropical rain forests, where humans can come into contact with animals such as chimpanzees, gorillas and forest antelope. The consumption of bush meat is often a precursor to such outbreaks. The WHO says fruit bats are probably the natural host for the virus.
Does anyone else ship Older!Jade and Older!Lucina? I watched the Little Witch episode of Sofia the First last night and the end had so much shipping fuel it killed me.
I am sure there’s somebody, but I prefer to ship Lucinda with Sofia, through.
Also, there needs to be drawings of older versions of not only the main characters, but also, of the underrated ones, like Lucinda, or Sofia’s friends, or Teeny…
PS: I just have throught the name of the ship anyways, how about Lucinde? (Sorry).
