What’s in a name?

Argh, I’ve been off Tumblr so long that a bunch of the people I was following have changed their names, and I’m confused. I guess this is karma from my former hijinx at Know Your Meme.

4 Behaviors the Modern World Is Only Making Worse

#3. Willful Ignorance and Disinformation
Global warming angers Donald Trump so much, it makes him swear. Two things about this are important for you to know. One is that global warming (or climate change, if you dislike the word “warm” in the winter) is real. Please leap to the comments now to argue if you like; it’s a good place to put your opinions where they can be mocked and then forgotten, because they really have no merit. More on that later. The second thing that is important to know about this is that, while you may think Donald Trump is a loudmouth, blowhard ignoramus, he once had a nine-point lead over other candidates to lead the Republican Party when he was last playing with the idea of running for president. This means Donald Trump actually influences real people in the real world. His dumbass opinions become other people’s dumbass opinions.

facts-i-just-made-up:

The annual “Taco Bell Train To Flavor” event went horribly wrong this morning as the methane flatulence of over 200 passengers was ignited by a spark from the train tracks.
The resulting blast tore through the train cars at over 100mph, burning through doors and windows with the compounded lit farts resulting from an estimated 400 pounds of Taco Bell enchiladas, burritos and tacos. “It’s a miracle nobody was killed,” said Taco Bell spokesman Mario Tartarugafrantoio, “The sheer volume of flatus that had collected in the train cars constituted a thermobaric bomb equal in potency to 12 Hiroshima explosions.”
Luckily the force of the blast was directed out the train windows and into the nearby Westboro Bapsist protesters who had come to boycott the Taco Bell event. Fred Phelps and 17 of his church members were lit aflame, much to the praise of anyone with good taste and common human decency.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

Here I am always freaking out when people I follow on tumblr post nudity, and I’m reposting this. I just think it’s something worth discussing even if it puts some nipples on my feed.

Katawa Shoujo Character Alignment Chart.

What do you think?

Nomiya’s not evil, he’s just way too driven and tends to not think about people’s emotions as much as he should..Of course, if there wasn’t a full evil row it wouldn’t be a complete chart. I’d replace Shizune with Jigoro, personally.

Then where would Shizune go? These nine characters seemed the most appropriate to use (although I considered putting Misha and Shizune together and making Hisao “True Neutral”) and at the very least, I couldn’t imagine finding a better “Lawful Evil” quote from the game. Nothing against Shizune; I really don’t think anyone fits better in that slot even if you consider the whole cast. Jigoro doesn’t seem particularly “lawful” to me.
Well, feedback is always appreciated anyway. : )

Yes! Created and put on KYM, and in about 48 hours, someone else adds it to Tumblr with 100+ notes, and it was a project I actually liked in the end. This is what I consider Internet success.
(And Shizune’s path is still my favorite…)
