After a long talk with a friend, I want to redact some of the earlier statements from today.

For those just tuning in, we were asked to tag or delete submissions that use words like “crazy” or “insane” and I made the statement that I did not want to because I did not consider those words bad or slurs.

I still don’t know that I do, and that’s for me to work out with myself but after having a few calm discussions where I wasn’t being called names or assaulted with lots of gatekeeping, I have decided to add the tag “ableist slurs” to the tag list.

However, the logistics of us actually tagging these posts when the submitter fails to is minimal.  Please understand all mods are very busy people and that while you may not like the words, they are deeply embedded in the language so as to create too many instances of deleted memes.

However, I want to encourage you, the submitters, to try and remember to check the ableism and ableist slurs for your fellow blogger.

But as I cannot promise, due to the volume and time constraints on this blog, that all such words will be tagged, I encourage those who will be effected by such things to either unfollow or savior any words like that that bother you.

We cannot provide a solid guarantee that this blog is a safe spot for you if these words are something you take issue with and want you to take any steps needed to protect yourself.

I want to apologize to anyone who felt dismissed, diminished, or invalidated by my earlier statements.

Thanks,

M

Was following this blog to laugh at all the people complaining about non-issues at work, but now I thiiiiiink it’s time to unfollow, now we’ve got to a case where they’re even considering taking notice of people who’re asking for trigger warnings for “ableist slurs”.

lol

I groaned too, don’t get me wrong, but if a bunch of social justice warriors are trying to storm their inbox and dashes I can see where it’d be less effort to just put in the tag. I still don’t agree with it, though. Shit, I pointed out to one of the many that reblogged the repost of the original ask (with obnoxious bullshit like LOL BUT YOU DON’T GET TO SAY WHAT’S NOT OFFENSIVE?????) that no, you don’t get to decide what other people find offensive, but you also don’t get to decide what people don’t find offensive, so the idea that someone is not allowed to run their blog how they want is just entitled and presumptuous. 

I got accused of being condescending and told to “literally fuck off”. It was kind of hilarious. 

Shit like this is basically why the social justice crowd on this site has so damn much power. That and the sheer volume of gullible idiots that eat, breathe, and shit their dashes. I do a lot of disgusted sighing and scoffing at mine.

Original asker asked me to remove the post.  Please do not harass this person, I’m trying my best to keep any discussion around this civil and they don’t deserve hate for asking me to establish new rules.

Here it is again without their name to keep my stance clear:

Can you please tag slurs like crazy and insane, or just not allow them or something, please?

lmfao you don’t get to decide what other people see as a slur and find triggering though is the entire point????? like

okay it doesn’t bother you as a slur/bothers you in other ways 

thats fine

but thats not how everyone views it and it’s not too much to ask that it be tagged? 

You don’t get to decide what people see as slurs and what they don’t either, so I’m not sure what the point of your five question marks is.

You also don’t get to decide what does and does not happen on someone else’s blog. That’s very presumptuous of you and the person that felt the need to be rude after being told why they’re not getting what they wanted. It’s not too much to ask that people either deal with it or unfollow either but OH LOOK here you are not respecting the blog admin’s opinions or decision.

I could spend all day explaining superficiality versus intent within language but I get the distinct impression that you’d Tumblr all over it and make the effort a total waste of time and energy, so I won’t bother.

Except retail robin isn’t just someone’s personal blog it’s a blog that a ridiculous amount of people use and I also reblogged that post before they made the post wrt their final decision and hey spoiler alert, i did unfollow them.

and I didn’t continue getting into it with them, even though I think they’re being unfair to a good portion of their users. I said my peace and let it drop and respected their wishes to unfollow if i disagreed so i don’t know why the hell you’re up my ass about this.

Literally fuck off with your condescending ass tone I’m not in the mood for it, go find someone’s else’s cage to rattle.

Hey, someone who does not understand in the slightest what half their words mean or how the website works, what a surprise!

Sweet Jesus, people really are raising their kids to be entitled.

Now I’m being blatantly condescending. You’d best have a look at your own language before accusing me of what you’re doing, kiddo. Your response was extremely condescending and quite frankly inappropriate and uncalled-for. Mine was hardly comparable, so good job being a gigantic whiny hypocrite.

I am not an admin of that blog, I do not see who unfollows and who doesn’t. I am not psychic. I only see what other people do with the post, and you’re under the mistaken impression that a side-blog is somehow no longer under the jurisdiction of its administrators. That’s not how it works. Ultimately no one but the admins decide what does and does not happen on their blog and it is not your place to tell them otherwise. Furthermore, respecting someone’s opinion and decision to not bend to the will of a very loud few does not include attempting to argue with them for making it, which, believe it or not, is exactly what you were doing.

If you don’t want people replying to your shit to disagree with you, don’t fucking post. Just as the great social justice army likes to tell marginalized people (who they’re supposedly fighting for) who don’t agree with them, you cannot speak for an entire group. It goes both ways. You don’t even know what mental disorders I might have beyond what I’ve mentioned in other posts on my blog. 

This is not fighting for equality. What you’re doing is not fighting for equality. What you’re doing seeks to divide everybody and demand special treatment for certain groups. That’s just as counterproductive as running around insulting everyone using language tailored to highlight what makes them different and therefore bad or subhuman.

memocaandthedaimonds 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...

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