Commented on Tumblr

Worst thing about this passage is that it wasn’t written by a teenage girl, it was written by Cracked writer who got paid for this.

Commented on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby

Another article on the implication of the court case:
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2014/jul/02/could-supreme-court-contraceptive-ruling-affect-co/

tl;dr version: Could employers deny treatments because of their beliefs? Maybe. But not likely, because Hobby Lobby proved that their religious doctrine were central to the company mission statement since it’s formation. Also, there’s a federal government program that pays for birth control for religious nonprofit members, something that doesn’t exist for blood transfusions, psychiatric treatments, etc. Despite there being no rules or rulings regarding insurance exceptions on religious grounds for decades, most companies don’t ask for them and when they do, insurance companies usually don’t comply.

I guess they think that using the craft supplies for pro-feminist art projects will rustle Hobby Lobby’s jimmies. In reality, as long as you pay for it they don’t care what you do with it afterwards.

Commented on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby

Something to clarify for the article. The case wasn’t about all forms of birth control like the pill, but specifically the “Morning after pill” and IUDs, which evangelicals equate with abortion because they prevent a fertilized egg from attaching themselves to the uterus walls. I’m not saying you can’t disagree with their logic or the implications of the ruling, but I’ve seen people on all sides thinking that Hobby Lobby is refusing to cover birth control pills, which they aren’t.

“Honey, why are you drawing on the milk with a sharpie?”
“God mom, I’m making a political statement for my tumblrblog!”
“Can it wait, I need the milk for a recipe.”
BUT MOOOMMMM, I’M TRYING TO SMASH THE PATRIARCHY!”

Replace “downvoted and deleted” with “reblogs with ranting and anon hate” and you just described tumblr.

It’s a metaphor. You put the fattening thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its fattening.

Probably, but also from what I’ve seen, very few people who do reblog the top one actually do anything to help the person, they just reblog it and say “Signal Boost” and act like it’s the same thing as giving them money or help. I’d say neither is actually helpful.

So basically the Polar Bear Plunge (which predates this by a century) except with a stupid “Viral video challenge” spin on it?

Commented on #YesAllWomen

Read the Facebook comments under Lisa Lombardo’s post. She posts a comment about how she hates this trend and a male feminist tells her that he hopes she gets raped.

Commented on Useful I guess

The reason that #sjw links to anti-sj blogs is the same reason that hate groups don’t call themselves hate groups and North Korea calls itself a Democratic People’s Republic instead of a dictatorship. SJW is a term used by critics of extremist SJ blogs, they seldom would refer to themselves as that. They would just use the tags for feminism, LGBT, fat acceptance, etc. and be mixed in with the not crazies.

A few more sexualities (that only exist on tumblr):
lithromantic/sexual: Having attraction to people and don’t want that attraction to be returned.
sapiosexual/romantic: Demi- but for smart people.
girlfag: Women who are attracted to gay guys. Pretty much just a yaoi fangirl who gets mad when gay guys don’t date them.

Commented on Gaymer


(I agree, I don’t see anything wrong with “Gaymers,” and having LGBT options in RPGs and other games that let you create relationships shouldn’t be seen as “social commentary” in a time where it’s becoming more and more acceptable, but Jesus Christ can we lay off the hashtags and taking pictures of yourself holding signs?)
