Fandom Drama And Why It's Just Silly
Ok....so Equestria Girls. Honestly, this is something I've been trying to ignore talking about, because quite honestly, I'm not interested in it. I don't hate; I don't like it; I don't care about it. But, seeing the reactions to it from the fandom, I might as well talk about it.
Seriously, I haven't seen a fandom backlash this great since Mass Effect 3's ending. It was ridiculous when Mass Effect fans lashed out about it, and it's ridiculous now. Let me clarify; the anger is not what I find exasperating. Mass Effect fans were justified to get so upset at the ending, and quite honestly, I think fans who are concerned about MLP and it's direct
Pregnancy and ResponsibilityThis is going to elicit some response from the social side of Tumblr, and honestly I should know not to say this stuff, but I never learn. For the record, I am a feminist and a libertarian.
Abortion. It’s a hard topic for me because of my involvement with crisis centers and some facts surrounding my birth. I’m going to explain the background of this. I read a post a few days ago saying that if you are mature enough to have sex, you should be mature enough to deal with possible pregnancy. That was the op. The replies followed the pattern, saying that “If you’re mature enough to drive a car, you should be mature enough
Women Don't Need Men.Ok, this has been on my mind all week and I feel like I’m going to go (further) insane if I don’t get it out now.
My fellow males…we are not necessary for the opposite sex.
That’s right. Women do NOT need us. Whatever roles or jobs society deems are fit for men, they can handle just fine.
Seriously, think about it. Head of the household? Check. Breadwinner? Check. Positive role model for children? CHECK. Security and protection? Check. Heck, they don’t even need us to do simple stuff like dispose of pests and rodents, or other things you’d think a man would handle. And, when it comes right down to it, t
Horror Storm-Based on a real story-
It was 7pm in the evening of Thursday, the 17th of May 2008.
Me, Sam, and one new horse of the stable called WhyBlack were outside.
It was my last horse for today, and even though the weather hadnt been good
all day, the sky was now looking less friendly than in the past 6 hours.
But 'Well,' I thought 'We're gonna be back soon'. I didnt care about the heavy black
clouds that were in the sky. This was Germany. Seriously. We always had some kind
of bad weather in May. WhyBlack and me walked up the hill that leads away from the stable,
both happy and calm. It was rather warm for the time of day, but as I already said - t
Suicide You're Not Alone Suicide
You're Not Alone
Do you people know how many people die from suicide? If you do, you're probably wrong. Sucide is the 10th leading cause of deaths in the world, while its the 3rd leading death in 18 or younger. Factors are mental illnesses, bullying, depression, and intense pain. Physically or mentally.
If you're reading this, and your suicidal, please read on. Don't ever forget, out there, somebody really loves you for the way you are. I love you. Don't end your life. The pain you are feeling is temporary and will go away. Like people say, after rain, there will always be a rainbow. Please, if you are suicidal, get help. Don'

Maybe I am who I am People tell me, that I'm bad.
I always let myself drown in this.
But now, I finally asked myself why.
Why do people, and why do I drown in critique?
Maybe I'm bad.
Maybe I'm an asshole.
Maybe I'm the worst person you'll ever meet.

Maybe I'm not worth any words.
Maybe I'm a crazy idiot.
Maybe I shouldnt be alive.
But maybe, I'm just me.
I'm being myself, and I won't say yes while I mean no.
Maybe I won't like you, and I won't tell you that I do when I don't.

I'm being honest.
And if you can't deal with it, I'm

Why do I even attempt what I may call "Art" when in truth it's merely RUBBISH... and it's nothing more than that, so DON'T try to talk me out of it this time...
On The Importance of the Artist and the AuthorOn The Importance of the Artist and the Author
Over the generations we have seen different roles become important to our society. Every role is ultimatley important this is true as society would fall apart were it not for everybody playing their part. Examples of this are individuals such as the Doctor and Politician. Without the Doctor society would have crumbled long ago as much of the population would have been killed off by disease or alternatively society would never have grown to become as large as it is. It is through the discoveries made by Doctors that the lifespan of the average person has become so much longer than it was g
On the Futility of Man The quOn the Futility of Man
The question is not ‘why are we here?’ It is not even ‘why do we try?’ The question, my friends, is ‘why do we ask these questions?’
Perhaps the answer really is as simple as ‘because we’re human and that’s what we do’ but something about that answer unsettles me. It’s too easy, too quick to brush off something that must be deeper. I dig ever more deeply that hole of the paradox, but I want to know – need to know - ‘why?’ Can I know why? Perhaps it is futile. Perhaps it is a horrible cycle in which I am doomed to spin eternally.
More Liberal Tolerance.I'm sure we all know by now about the horrible tornado that hit Oklahoma and completely destroyed the suburb of Moore. Many are praying for the survivors, many are helping, too many are grieving the loved ones they lost.
Then there are people who don't know when to keep their mouths shut.
The bastion of liberal tolerance who shot her mouth off is Lizz Winstead. Lizz is not some crazed environmentalists who thinks humanity needs to be wiped out in order to save the planet. She is not a raging feminist with a beef against men. She is the founder of the TV show 'The Daily Show'. That's right, the creator of what way too many people consider a 'legitimate source of news' said it. One of the 'Smart People' showed she is not one of the 'Wise People' with the following
Three Rules That Every Kid Should KnowThere are three rules that every kid should know that will make their lives easier and save their parents a lot of grief.
1) There are two kinds of things in the world, things you want, things you need. Learn how to tell the difference.
2) Never do anything just because "Everybody else is doing it". If a million people do a stupid thing it still is a stupid thing, it's just that now a million stupid people are doing it.
3) Learn to think further than 10 minutes in the future. A really cool thing now might prove to be really stupid tomorrow, that is if there is a tomorrow.
