If you’ve never been told you can’t really be offended for people making fun of people of your ethnicity because, “You aren’t really <insert heritage here>, you’re only half,” I don’t want you to tell me that any culture can become your culture. If you’ve never had anyone mispronounce the name of food from your/your family’s homeland then fight you on it I do not want to hear you tell me that anyone can decide they want to be from another culture.
If you are not intelligent enough to know that a Mexican person seeing American culture and deciding to try to emulate that (not my scenario) is different from a white American pretending to be Mexican you can just stop.
Whoever came up with the promo poster for American Horror Story that I just scrolled is a horrible person and whoever posted the picture on their blog is an asshole. Maybe not actually an asshole but that’s how I feel right about now.
“But he’s cool and he hangs out with the cool kids!” is horrible reason to vote for someone once you’re done with high school. He’s running for President of the United States, not prom king. There are valid reasons to voice your support of Obama - pick one of those and run with it.
If there’s anything I hate more than politicians it’s voters.
I REALLY LIKE ELEMENTARY WHY IS EVERYONE HATING SO HARD?
Because you’re obviously not a fan of Sherlock Holmes…
that’s why it’s an adaptation.
Wow…. That’s just…wow. A little presumptuous isn’t it?
People are way to snobby and purist about things.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wasn’t even a fan of Sherlock Holmes.
The problem with many political post (Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter) is that they aren’t necessarily well thought out, individual opinions. Half of them are something like: “Republicans hate women and gays and blacks so if you are one of those groups and vote Republican you’re dumb,” or, “Obama is a Kenyan Muslim and I want to see his birth certificate!” or, “Romney is a lame, rich, robotic crook,” or “Republicans want to rape you and force you to have the baby!” That last one was a slight exaggeration but you get the point. The worst are posts fan girling over how cool our President is and how that’s the reason you should vote for him. I don’t care if a Presidential candidate can make pop culture references or has a hip wife and nothing makes me hate Obama supporter posts more than the people saying that’s why you should vote for him. His Presidency is indeed flawed and to ignore those flaws because he has some snappy come back or whatever is just irresponsible. Decide the good outweighs the bad, by all means, but don’t get distracted by flashy PR and push that shit on me.
(Full disclosure: I pretty much dislike all politicians and think they’re just saying whatever they say to get votes but, according to some website I don’t remember the name of, I most agree with the Libertarian party candidate whose name I cannot even remember so…yeah.)
I’m just gonna say that sometimes I get where misandry comes from. Some woman at some point was probably going through some immense pain related to the whole reproduction process (cramps, labor, first time) and saw some man just chilling, doing his thing, oblivious to what a hassle life is for ladies. And she was pissed. Rightly so, I say.
