Original or not, I don’t really care either way, nothing is really original anyway, blah blah blah. Anyway I saw some people implying that it challenged gender norms or some such. I haven’t had a chance to watch so I can’t say for sure, but I have read the recap and reactions and I don’t see how it really challenged any gender norms.
Lady Gaga wears an outfit made of meat, she’s still Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga wears a bunch of stuffed frogs, she’s still Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga wears lingerie, she’s still Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga wears a suit and has short hair and suddenly she’s “Jo Calderone”.
The fact that she seems to need some sort of male alter-ego in order to justify dressing as a man is hardly challenging gender norms. In fact it only seems to reinforce the gender binary.
I have more thoughts but my phone is about to die and no one probably cares anyway.
If you haven’t watched the performance this doesn’t pass muster. You can’t review something you haven’t seen.
Dear followers: why do you feel the need to post thinspo shit? It doesn’t make my dash any more fun, in fact, it lessens the fun. It especially sucks when I see some of my favorite people posting it, you’re fucking beautiful and fine the way you are and you don’t have to be 90 lbs to wear whatever the fuck you want. PLZ STOP

I don’t wrap the yarn around my finger when I’m knitting. Ever. It looks painful. I just let it dangle there and when I need it, I move my whole arm.
hahaha whoever made this tumblr is amazing
“YOUR choice to bring Chaz Bono into the mix goes too far. I am not about to risk the potential for on screen dialogue about sex changes and gender confusion while my 7 and 9 year old are watching. If you want the “anything goes” hippy culture, then soon that is all you will get. You’ve lost us. In case any of you are wondering … no, we are NOT tolerant. We are not tolerant to allow any and all influences to come unfiltered into our home and especially to our children. This is truly a sad farewell.”
“Dad, why can’t we watch Dancing With The Stars anymore?”
“well, honey, daddy’s a stupid bigot who’s terrified that you might be able to accept someone that daddy can’t understand.”
Conservative parenting: Where you try and guard real world problems from your children until they’re married and you expect the government to regulate what your children watch on TV.
But didn’t you hear?? ALL GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS SHOULD BE STOPPED! POWER TO THE PEOPLE EXCEPT WHEN IT DOESN’T SUPPORT THE CONSERVATIVE AGENDA!
The Gloss anonymously interviewed seven men from different walks of life, asking each, “What makes a woman a slut?” and posted the results yesterday. Among the indications of sluttiness cited were:
How many people she sleeps with a year
Not waiting long enough to sleep with a guy
Having sex with them on the first date
Wha? You’d call a woman a slut because she slept with you?
Aside from the obvious double-standard, the centuries of sexual repression and shaming women for daring to have a sex drive, and the host of other reasons that a statement like this is unfair, irresponsible and cowardly, you are contributing to a hostile and fearful dating environment.
If you don’t like the choices a woman makes about whom she sleeps with and when, you are more than welcome not to sleep with her. But to continue to judge single women for having the audacity to sleep with who they want to—something that single men are generally congratulated for—is to perpetuate an antagonistic dynamic between the sexes that has seen its day.
This is what has always struck me about male slut shaming. Not all guys will sleep around if given the chance but most will if they have the ability. If you’d screw her, slut shaming is just a sign that you’re bitter deep down.
- thefrogman: I would find it hard to get mad at a puppy
- Sam: it's easy to get mad at a pile of poop but then the dog is hard to stay mad at for more than a few seconds
- but seeing that little pile angers me
- but it's the poop I'm mad at, not the dog
- "why do you exist, poop? why are you there and not outside, poop?"
- thefrogman: you must have deep seeded poop issues from your past
- Sam: poop killed my parents
- back when I went to that poop factory
- thefrogman: so you grew up and become the thing you feared.
- I am vengeance. I am smelly. I AM THE SHIT
Registering atheists like Richard Dawkins would at least let people know who - and WHERE - they reside .
Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..
Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?”Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net - to INFORM the public !
So I wound up reading the rest of the article…this is the reasoning:
I mean , in the City of Miramar , Florida , where I live , the population is approx. 109,000 . My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 areADMITTED atheists ! Perhaps we may actually know some . In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism . Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan .
Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea - including the atheists themselves ( unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’ ) .
So you heard it….if you’re an atheist, you should be subjected to public calls for conversion and if you refuse, we’ll deprive you of your livelihood because you bear resemblance to an ancient ruler on another continent. Sounds like reasonable christian logic to me.
(Go here if you want to see this ridiculousness entirely, including a ”donate” button — save our children by giving this guy money!)
But you never hear them talking about what they have to offer that man
Just an observation
well, we shan’t be bragging shall we?
It’s been a year since I created my tumblr account and to mark the occasion I want to introduce you guys and gals to some of the awesome people of the internet. The only reason why my tumblr is somewhat amusing or interesting is because of the blogs I reblog from. I mean I’m a terribly boring person.
I present to you, the cool list.
rikkemorningstar - Lady Rikke of Norway. Her blog is filled with interesting, nerdy and wonderfully appealing content. Also she has an awesome personality for someone who suffers from a serious case of social awkwardness.
flyingscotsman - Duke Duncan of Scotland. He is the jester of the internet. Funny is his business, your laughs is his profit. Fancies the pants off Mila Kunis.
littlebird-ofprey - Mad Duchess Robyn of San Francisco. She’s demented.
mattchester-united - Emperor Matt of Noodles & Puns. He’s Asian. Swag. He is, in some cases, more British than myself, despite residing on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean. Also he’s deluded enough to think that Manchester United are a quality football team.
discoveringnuance - Kaiserin Zita of Ireland & Germany. Mega Ultra Super Hipster. Tiddly-dee potatoes! Weird eyebrows. Ninjamas. Ninjamas. Ninjamas.
fuckyeaholiviaa - Princess Olivia of England. Her blog consists of the following: kawaii stuff, K-ON, Miyazaki, Lord of The Rings, Avatar (Airbender), pokemon and pictures of her cat. She’s a mean zombie slayer and she has a dashing English accent.
blackguyandrew - Sir Andrew of California. Shreds the guitar redankulously. And reblogs tons of funny shit.
askinnyblackman - Count Chris of Grammer. He has the funny, the corgi’s and I see Emma Watson on his blog on a frequent basis.
mrshowardhughes - Nordic Goddess of Chimneys. A teacher in Finland to Russian Students learning English (I think I got that right…) Humorous content, strong opinions and low tolerance for idiots. I’m pretty sure she is the coolest teacher.
protossingthesalad//smthsmthdarkside - Sir Joaquim & Madam Stine of Oslo. This couple are filled with laughable, artistic and generally nerdy stuff. In particular minecraft and cats. (not necessarily at the same time.)
hixichu - Storhertuginne Hannah of Dubstep. She likes ProgressiveDubElectroBitHouseTechPopStep. And pugs. She likes pugs. She has “chu” in her name :)
taipinglost - Jordan: Maiden of Jailbait. She can get anyone a hooker at any time and she’s a contortionist who makes funny faces. >_<
ieatbrainsforbreakfast - Baron Francisco of Beards. He’s cool.
tacgnol - Lady B of Nerd. Top quality nerdiness.
intothedangerzone - Luke the Average. A funny geek with a thing for redheads.
runnincirclesaroundya - Professor Olivia The Genius. She’s smarter than me. She’s more of a geek than me. She has a driving license and I don’t. Her art skills are more mad than my stick figures.
everyherphasitsderp - Lord Hugh Derp of Australia. He has stuff on his blog.
Follow them or smile and eat a banana.
