one time i saw a girls bra strap. that was it. i was gone. i just couldnt focus anymore throughout the whole day because i saw it. all i could think about was bra strap. i went to a restauraunt and they asked what i wanted and the only words that came out of my were were “bra strap”. what could that girl be hiding under it? what is beneath that bra strap? is it connected to something else? like a bra or something? and what is the bra hiding? ugh im so distracted by it im sure it’s all ill think about for the rest of my life.
This just makes me want to cry. Or facepalm. Or throw up. I don’t know. I am just SO. FUCKING. SICK. of this fucking constant, CONSTANT objectification and sexualization of every single goddamn female character. These women are fucking SOLDIERS. KBFKAJKFNJA I can’t even express my thoughts on this right now, I am just so pissed off)
The ONLY (and I mean ONLY) reason Tali (right) is not bikini-fied is because her race has to wear an enviro-suit otherwise they’d DIE, however the artist still made it camel-toe-skintight.
(apologies for lack of source, I just found it on the Commander Jane Shepard facebook page)
(also this is not intended to be in the slut-shaming vibe, please don’t interpret it as such)
tw: ableist slurs, probably a bunch of other shit
It looks a lil’ somethin’ like this:
It quantifies privilege into a neat little points system, and let me be very clear when I say IT IS BULLSHIT.
First of all, privilege is not a number. You cannot give privilege a number. Privilege is dynamic; it varies by location, company, age, etc. (In turn, not having a certain kind of privilege is detrimental by varying degrees depending on location, company, etc.) Discrimination is far more complex than this chart allows, so it erases some very real struggles (and privileges!) by making things so general.
Secondly, the system by which it quantifies privilege is skewed as hell.
Being Black is -100 points, but being gay is -150? And bisexuality is +10 points?? And uh, genderqueer is part of the trans* spectrum, you know.
Also, whoever made this graphic used some serious offensive language and made some really fucked up implications.
Social autism? What? And it’s a freebie?! Fuck is that shit about?! And the r-slur? Really?
Anyway, there’s a clusterfuck of cock-ups, but now I want to focus on the scale down at the bottom.
It completely disregards that not having one privilege does not absolve you of owning your other privileges. Lemme just repeat that. Not having one privilege does not absolve you of owning your other privileges.
Whether you have +250 or -75 or 20 or -200 points on that scale, if you have any kind of privilege, you need to check that privilege and be respectful of those who don’t have it. M’kay?
So please, don’t use this to find out how ~*~oppressed~*~ you are, because a flat number means fuck all in the real world.
I laughed because even if I was a white straight cis Jewish incredibly attractive male living in Sweden who’s an investment banker billionaire I’d be minus 505 privilege points because OH NO being blind is the worst thing ever how could anyone live that way
Although since I’m only half blind I guess I can half the number
… which still leaves me with -130 hypothetical privilege points
This graphic is all sorts of facepalm. Thank you flappingphysicist for pointing out this bullshittery.
Haha, as always, it just sounds so utterly ridiculous when you break it down to the basics.
OH WHY THANK YOU HOW KIND OF YOU DON’T EXERT YOURSELF NOW
And wait… if you’re advertising FREE prayer then you are implying there is such a thing as prayer that ISN’T FREE. Boys and girls, if someone asks for money so they can think about your dead dog for a few minutes, that’s called a SCAM.
God Does Exist
A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: “I don’t believe that God exists.”
“Why do you say that?” asked the customer.
“Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.”
The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.
The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.
The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: “You know what? Barbers do not exist.”
“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber. “I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!”
“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”
“Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.”
“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS !!!!!!!
This is silly in an illustrative way. First of all, how many people DO pray or do whatever they have to do to get’s God’s attention and get sick anyway?
And secondly, that man with the dirty, long hair probably would not be able to afford a barber. It doesn’t matter if the man come to him or not.
Fucking Christian propaganda. This is unbelievably stupid.
Silly me, I guessed “grades”
Ok so I found this picture just so hilarious. I know it’s trying to be all fashiony and sophisticated, but to me it looks like she’s talking into the shoe, thinking it’s a phone.
”Hello? Oh hi there, Mr Shoe! How are you? …Mhmm…Mhmm… Ok, nice talking to you! Bye!“
