- You. You deserve better, you know why? Because when anon hate is seething through the walls, times when your dashboard is filled to the brim with negative posts, times when you just want to leave or wish it was hours ago when everything was okay. You stay. You stay when it gets ridiculously…
They are trying to censor history classes in the school district I just graduated from. This is very sickening to me you can read about it here!
Also, there is a petition against this! Please please sign it! This has already happened to one school district here in CO please…
"She said she’s not trying to eliminate the facts of U.S. history but shares the concerns conservatives nationally have outlined – that AP History casts some parts of history in a negative light, such as the bombing of Hiroshima and slavery."
That’s… probably because those were, in-fact, bad things. How do you cast the fucking nuking of a city in a positive light? “And thus, we dropped the bombs and wiped those filthy enemies of freedom right off the map!” Seriously. Without using things to rashly call the Japanese anything bad or racist, how would you do this? I am actually curious. And slavery? Don’t even get me started on how you cannot cast that in a positive light.
And surprisingly this was in Colorado, not Texas.
Anonymous asked: Can't we say though that a lot of women costumes are ridiculous though? I mean yeah you can get the guys costume but it could end up being baggy or too big. And making your own costume is cool but not everyone has the time or talent. I get where you guys were coming from but there never seems to be a non-sexy form of a male costumes (or there is and I haven't looked hard enough)
You haven’t looked hard enough, anon.
BATMAN CHARACTERS - NON SEXUAL/ACCURATE TO CHARACTER - FEMALE
All from the same website
Here is a section for tv/movie female character costumes.
Notice anything? Most of them are not skimpy, they are pretty damn accurate to what they are portraying.
Yes, go into Classics section and you find sexy outfits… but you also find panted ones.
OKAY. Let’s use another website for reference, eh?
Also use the term “halloween costumes” as my search, and I’ll click the first link that comes up - which is
Go to ladies costumes.
Oh look at what I see - panted and skirted outfits. Hmmm… so if someone didn’t want to dress “slutty” (as some people refer to it as), they could always pick one of the panted outfits surely.
Like, let’s say this one
From Grease, or this
Flapper outfit, or this
Disney-themed outfit, or this
Okay. Let’s try another. I’ll click the second link that came up, okay?
Haven’t a bit of trouble with it loading, so I may have to go for the next link down - which is partycity.com
Well look again. The second image is an accurate costume for Maleficent. And look down even further, Snow White’s Evil Queen - accurate once more. Hmmm….
But we’re talking about Men’s costumes, right? So I’ll check the Superhero section on partycity
Look at all those Superhero/SuperVillian costumes that are ACCURATE TO THE COMICS.
Hmmmmmmmmmm…. not looking hard enough seems to be pretty likely, nonny.
(I know this is dripping with anger, but I’m sick of people bitching about Halloween costumes. I am making a Professor Chaos outfit. Do you know what I did for that? I made a helmet out of cardboard, stapled it together and wrapped it with Tinfoil. Then I got a green shirt and green pants. DONE. That was it. Simple as. It’s not that hard to make outfits, guys. Maybe if you stopped arguing about skimpy halloween costumes, you’d have enough time to make your own costumes.
I know it comes off as rude, but for godric’s sake. It’s not that hard to find a non-skimpy halloween costume, and it’s also not hard to make one yourself. Do you think everyone who cosplays is unemployed and has all the time in the world to do what they do? No, we don’t. I work 36+ hours a week, but I still find time to make my cosplay outfits. Do you know what? Because I want to look good. I want to dress as a character I like, and I want it to be accurate. I hand stitch all my outfits. I burn and cut and staple myself repeatedly, solely because I don’t like what is on sale - not because they are skimpy, but because they are either to expensive or not accurate enough for my obsessiveness.)
(Me too, Tartarus. I have never had a slutty costume and my Halloween costumes are FUCKING AWESOME. It just takes a tiny bit (or alot if you’re super into Halloween like I am) of effort.)
-the Polish one
What society has come toUGH I HATE BEING ABLE TO FIND ANY INFORMATION I NEED ONLINE UGHHH TECHNOLOGY IS BAD BURN THE INTERNET LET US GO BACK TO A SIMPLER TIME BEFORE ELECTRICITY WHEN WE COULD ALL DIE EVERY TIME WE GOT A COLD
Idk it looks more like Albert’s just sick of explainin shit to people over and over again
Actually you’re probably right. Einstein was a huge critic of the act of committing things to memory that could easily just be looked up.
He thought it was a waste of time, effort, and mental resources that could be out to much better use.
Einstein would probably be the type to just ask you to Google something. Hell if for no other reason than if you asked him something he would say that he didn’t remember it himself.
so einstein would be clicking his heels in glee knowing the internet exists, betting ghost einstein is currently donning shades and slam dunking a textbook in the afterlife
tupac-and-biggie asked: I really agree with what you say on the halloween costumes comic. I have a different issue where I think it presents the wrong message to children? I know it's not the same for everyone but I've walked into a costume shop before with costumes for girls in their tweens and teens already getting to a sexualized point and I'm far more concerned about how this may affect younger children rather than adults
ive seen what youre talking about, and maybe its a regional thing, but the BABY SLUT costumes were never big sellers and were always shelf-warming pieces of shit with all the other lame costumes (it may be because in NH it is always cold as fuck here in October)
in any case, its important to remember that the kids who want these costumes dont want them because they wanna look like sluts, but because the character the costume is for is someone/something they think is cool/pretty/admire
(i remember dressing up like jasmine from aladdin when i was younger—gray sports bra and polka-dotted MC hammer pants and all)
Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)
Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.
He’d rock the fuck out of memes. Don’t deny it.
Exit, pursued by a doge.
much run wow
I don’t understand people who try to make Shakespeare into a pretentious thing cause he was basically an uneducated dick-joke making dude for the common masses. His historical plays are straight up fanfiction. There’s a scene in Macbeth where two guards are having a conversation as a dude pees on a wall. Get out of here with your Shakespeare snobbery.
shout out to people who are scared to call others out, whose hands shake when they try to explain what’s wrong, whose throats threaten to close up with thoughts of ‘what if i’m just overreacting’, whose hearts are pounding out of their chests because they just stuck their necks out for their beliefs, who have lost friends and respect and safety for aligning themselves with causes
using your mental illness as a smokescreen for abusive behavior is one of the shittiest things you can do because not only are you trying to weasel your way out of taking responsibility for your actions but you are also positioning mentally ill people as being totally incapable of controlling their own actions or behaviors
