softbuneary asked: PuddleHeart/Rain is one of Softy's so called "guardians" right??? Then how come she can 'speak' Japanese and has to use a translator to do so? ( Softy even said herself that she uses a translator sometimes. ) Last time I checked Softy isn't a native Japanese speaker and has shown no signs of ever being able to commutative in Japanese without a translator. Even more proof that Softy is faking DID.

To play devil’s advocate, (because you know I wouldn’t back her up on this) with DID it IS possible to revert to someone who can speak a foreign language.  

I believe there was someone who would revert to another part of their self and they would speak fluent russian, even though they’ve NEVER been to russia, know ANYTHING of the language, etc. 

However, given that she uses a translator and stuff for it, it’s EXTREMELY offputting that it is “real” at all. I can also see her needing a translator because there’s no japanese characters on an american keyboard, BUT there is a way to spell japanese words with english letters so that doesn’t mean much anyway. 

All in all, needing a translator for someone that’s supposed to speak fluent japanese is garbage. 

I would also like to point out that on one of those did u kno’s, a man was beaned in the head and could speak a whole nother language fluently after waking up. So it’s quite possible we know every language, it just takes a lot of effort and focus to learn and tap into those languages that are buried into our subconscious. 

Which is totally plausible, given that we humans only use 10% of our brain. 

(oh god i wanna see that movie lucy so bad)

Lucy was amazing I just saw it this afternoon!

Ahhh you lucky duck! I gotta wait til my next paycheck to see it

Actually it’s been verified for a long time now that humans utilize 100% of their brain capacity and the 10% statistic is a myth. I saw a trailer for that and cringed when that very myth came out of Morgan Freeman’s mouth, of all people (particularly considering that he hosts Through the Wormhole on the Discovery network). It also made me cringe because people went through the entire process of making a movie without anyone at all bothering to verify the claim’s authenticity or point out its falsity. Like, it looks neat and all on a visual level, but the science in the fiction being even hokier than most superhero backstories is a deal-breaker for me.

Anonymous asked: The brony hate is just an extension of the male hate that is so common on this website (and in real life, to a lesser but still significant degree). 'Bronies' are stepping outside of their assigned gender role by liking a 'girls show' and men aren't allowed to do that. This whole 'they make too much porn' or 'they all hate women' or any of the other excuses people come up with is just that, an excuse.

OH MY GOOOOD FUCKING STOP. LISTEN TO YOURSELF.

Why yes I truly believe that this one idiotic reason anyone might dislike bronies (NO ONE CARES IF YOU’RE A DUDE AND WATCH GIRLY SHIT. NO ONE CARES.) is literally the only reason anyone dislikes bronies.

Fantastic bait but seriously I want to punch people like you no matter what for coming off like you know absolutely everything about a shared public opinion when it’s really fucking obvious you don’t and you’re wrong and trivializing and invalidating everyone else’s negative personal experiences with this bullshit.

Have you paid any attention to Brony hate? The arguments listed above are the ONLY arguments I’ve ever seen. If you know of a legitimate argument as to why Bronies are apparently satan incarnate, please do let us know instead of spouting off “OMG you’re so stupid god you know nothing” without any reasoning.

WHOA, THIS JUST IN, GUYS, NEGATIVE PERSONAL EXPERIENCES ARE NOT A LEGITIMATE REASON TO DISLIKE A SUBCULTURE. Honestly. I’m allowed to tell people their dumbshit hypothesis about my opinions are wrong especially when their dumbshit hypothesis about why my opinions exist are dead fucking wrong. And here’s a logical exercise for you: if you react to something the way you do for the reason you do, and there are nearly seven billion people on this fucking planet, you are not the only one that does.

I honestly do not believe you have ever actually looked further than the impotent bitching of anons on ughsocialjustice and brony white knights like tenaflyviper for your snapshot of why people don’t like bronies.

For that, and for feeling the need to include “satan incarnate” when I made no such implication, I’m not going to put forward the effort to humor you. The best you’re getting is an accurate comparison: “People only hate bronies because misandry” = “People only hate gamer girls because misogyny.”

Anonymous asked: I take brony hate really personally. Not because I am a brony. But because my little brother who is 22 and Autistic, and my little cousin who is a 7-year-old boy are both "bronies". I'm the oldest of my generation of kids, and I get really defensive when people imply my family members are perverted or pedophiles or weirdos for liking a goddamn TV show. Girls are able to get in on "boy" shows and no one cares. Why can't it be the other way around?

Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure I remember it being bronies making a big deal out of a bunch of boys and dudes liking a show of pastel-colored talking horses aimed at little girls. No one gave a shit until the Brony Doc, that train wreck of a publicity stunt, went viral across the internet. So try not to blame the general public for what a fandom made a point of doing itself.

Neuropsych testing report finally came in.

I am formally diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder, mild severity; mood disorder, not otherwise specified; unspecified neurodevelopmental disorder; and exhibit symptoms of ADHD (I was diagnosed with this when I was in third grade), or right hemisphere disorder.

Per usual, not a single thing wrong with me is simple, well-researched, or truly manageable. Apparently I was a real asshat in a previous life.

I am “well defended, [have] a dry sense of humor, but [am] at high risk for self-esteem limitations and frank depression.”

I don’t know about having any self-esteem issues, but I do have an inherent and potentially crippling fear of rejection that has ultimately lost me contact with a large majority of my friends. Despite what my mother believes, psychotropic drug therapy will not necessarily help; I have been on several already and to no effect whether for their off-label uses or their initial intended purpose.

I’m just rambling now. It’s 1PM, I’m awake despite the Gabapentin in my system trying to knock me on my ass, and I’ve had inexplicable and unprovoked episodes of barely controllable weeping all morning.

I’m a fucking mess.

My mother thought I was being dramatic when I said my car was my life. Lo and behold, my car is totaled thanks to a fucking traffic light on the highway and now I hover just a few steps away from rock bottom, relying on my parents and the state to keep afloat.

gods, someone shoot me

givinginandsigningup asked: Is Tumblr really doing that bad with advertisers as people say? I regularly see sponsored stuff on Tumblr mobile, after all. I think people may be slightly exaggerating on the "disaster for Yahoo" stuff...

What ads?

I don’t think they are. I have never seen so fucking many ads on my dash.

Anonymous asked: "if my kid turns out to be a brony, i'll send them to the military!!" well if my girl tells me she prefers transformes and beyblade over ponies and barbies, I'll just send her to one of those "good wife"-schools. can't allow her to become one of those man hating butch feminist lesbi--- what? that's sexist? well wHAT DO YA KNOW

Comments like this give me the distinct impression that people legitimately don’t understand what the general problem with bronies is, or they’re blatantly ignoring the actual issue to make it look sexist. The absolute last last last last problem people have with bronies is that they’re mostly grown adults that like a family show with a minimum target audience of six years old. You’re a boy that likes ponies? GOOD FOR YOU. Have fun watching pastel talking horses. 

That could not be further from the actual source of the bad brony stigma. The actual source of the bad brony stigma comes from the scores of horrible people who have perpetuated awful social conduct with little repercussion, if any at all, with the added benefit of other bronies crawling out of the woodwork to defend these horrible people just for being bronies.

Take that away, and the stigma diminishes significantly. One of the other actual sources of bad brony stigma comes from all the unregulated porn being churned out at alarming rates and even monetized upon. Remember Down with Molestia? When people are concerned about their kids identifying as bronies, how far removed they are from being the target audience is irrelevant. They become concerned because the name has been associated with selfish, maladjusted, juvenile, racist, sexist, *phobic porn hounds who would rather fap to pixels in the shape of a pastel horse than try to make friends with people they could physically see. 

The fandom reached critical mass, and now the name is seen as synonymous with “socially unacceptable”.

when will high-functioning autistic people stop pretending that they are the only disabled people in existence

when will high-functioning autistic people stop acting fucking entitled to an opinion when they don’t have nearly the same experience as other disabled people in the vast spectrum of mental disorders especially because at its root high-functioning autism is not really a disease or disability, more of a different getup

Scuse me. Last time I checked, everyone was entitled to an opinion, from totally neurotypical, mentally healthy people, to the most heavily disabled individual in existence. I don’t agree with the admin of prehistoric birds either, but then I struggle with the idea that the mental illness/disability social stigma is fueled by language and not the other way around. Typically the words people on Tumblr are now flying around calling “ableist” rely very heavily on these stigmas in order to carry their intended weight.

I watched the whole thing happen, and the person you screeched at was pretty fucking civil about voicing their opinion in the first place. Quite honestly, I was very disappointed in the admin of prehistoric birds for how incredibly juvenile their response was. PB admin blew it out of proportion and so did you. As a bonus, PB admin’s later quote to someone else says literally nothing about the correlation between language and violence. None whatsoever. It describes the correlation between publicized mental illness diagnosis and violence. 

I’ll even let you lump me in with whatever groups you like to hate if it makes you feel better. Either way, unless you’re the internet police, please don’t silence people who are exercising their right and entitlement to their opinions. You don’t have to like them, but acting like they’re not allowed to have those opinions or express them makes you no better than you think they are.

And let’s be clear: a person’s entitlement to their opinion is a fact. No one can take that away from them. You saying they aren’t entitled to their opinion is not a matter of opinion, it is flat-out wrong.
