Racism without prejudice

Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Unfortunately, “Tumblr Feminism” has a different definition.

Definition of femin-ism needs work. It’s a bunch of ideas about feminity which may include a womans equality to a man.

Nevermind that most folks don’t even know what equality is… and then there is the tumblr community.

Any Odin-centric Facebook group that has “Ladies, do you think Odin is sexy?” in the About section pretty much guarantees that I’m never going to take it seriously. Especially when it’s selling Odin as a manly warrior type in the paragraph before.

We all know that…

Observe!

When the issue is ‘aren’t norse girls sexy’ Is a male problem because a)only males find women sexy and

b)stop making women sex symbols.

When the issue is “Ladies, do you think Odin is sexy?” suddenly

a)what about homosexual females (where were they before) and

b)stop pretending women are as stupid as men and have any interest in sex.

You lot are fucking hilarious… and stupid. Stop making it about gender.

Why is it that a significant percentage of the female victims of horror posters look like they're writhing in orgasm, rather than fear?

I had to think about this for a moment, as I’ve seen quite a lot of horror posters, and honestly couldn’t think of a single one that could really be mistaken that way.  If you were referring to the image I reblogged earlier of the car with teeth, I’m fairly certain that isn’t art from any film poster I’ve ever seen, unless it was used for any alternative foreign posters (and even then, I would have likely stumbled across it while putting together that photo set I made a while back of killer automobiles).

From filing through the posters I have saved, I found 75 faces which appear to be significantly frightened/uneasy:

I found five that look weirdly happy:

Five that look constipated and/or completely fucking baffled:

And, after scraping enough, I did manage to find five that could be mistaken to be in the throes of passion:

But, the thing is, two of them (the first, and the last) are dead bodies, and the second one is from a Cronenberg film that is highly sexually driven, and the look on the face was likely intentional.  The third came from a film notorious for a scene in which a giant, alien maggot basically has it’s way with a woman that appears to enjoy it way too much, and the fourth is from an alternative poster for a film that has absolutely nothing to do with what’s pictured on the poster.

While the horror genre is a prime target for cries of sexism and misogyny (which I don’t particularly agree with), this is one point that I must discredit.  As a lover of horror poster art, you are far more likely to find faces distorted in screams of fear and terror, rather than pleasure. 

You may be thinking of gallery books, which tend to be filled with illustrations from horror/fantasy artists, which often contain the kind of scenes you’ve described.

The way I see it, a lot of those pictures can be construed as “O-faces”.

During (a true, genuine, not faked) orgasm, sometimes the muscles in the face can’t be controlled. Sometimes the faces look like severe pain or fear.  So it’s not really that the horror faces look like O-faces, but more that the O-faces look like horror faces.

Why is it a significant percentage of guys look like dicks when they are writhing in orgasm?

a lake in montana whose water is so clear it appears shallow, when really its over 100 feet deep!

this is actually kinda terrifying because what if someone doesn’t know how deep it is, so they go diving and try to swim to the bottom, but they always seem just out of reach, so they just keep swimming… and when they realize something’s wrong it’s too late

Imagine seeing a body at the bottom….

tumblr has the ability to turn everything beautiful into something terrifying 

What if you see a skeleton at the bottom of what appears to be a shallow part of the lake. As you dive down to check them out you notice the water is deeper than you originally thought. Much deeper. You come to realize that there is no way these remains could be human, you’re not even half-way down and already the skull already looks bigger than your car


This started so tranquil and then it turned into Friday the 13th

YOU PEOPLE ARE NOT HELPING MY FEAR OF DEEP WATER.

Meanwhile nobody notices that where that girl is floating isn’t 100 feet deep, the shadow is too large and close to her for it to be 100 feet deep. Plus the wood which has sunk gives a good perspective on how deep the water is as well.
Don’t mind my commentary. Go back to freaking out over something illogically and blowing it out of proportion. That’s what Tumblr does best, after all.

exactly what  I was thinking. Those trees must have been huge if the logs are 1000 feet deep.

Uh not… really?

If we’re talking about white people oppressing poc throughout the world then we’re talking about white people as oppressors.

Religion often was used as a thin veil for greed and racism, but those things are just that. Not religion.

Not to mention that the spread of christianity was a longass time ago and it’s not really just to place Abrahamic religions NOW in the same shoes as what can be viewed in the past.

For that matter, white pagans did just about as much killing as white abrahamics. And to the same groups, too.

So.

—W

People across the world are willing to destroy other peoples lives for their own advantage or for fun, and will use any excuse.

The only reason white people are the worlds oppressors is because they got lucky with technology. Their time will come, there will always be an oppressor. The new oppressor may even act under the veil of religion. Shame.

speaking of fertility seeing arguments on my dash

I made a woman really uncomfortable a while back. I made a comment about “bleck, kids.”

and she said “oh, I bet you’ll change your mind when you have some.”

I stared at her, she stared at me, and I said, “I’m infertile.”

I totally misread that first time round and thought your comment was more like ‘ermahgerd bleck kids.’

Nobody else has noticed that the accomplice rocks up and runs in to help? Does she woop his ass as well? Where is there rest of this scene.

Do I?  Really?  By answering questions posed to me by other people, and seeing what people reblog on my dashboard, I’m “stalking” someone?

That’s cute, considering Pinkiepony and Lucariwhoa have both been caught responding to posts from my blog that were not tagged with anything either of them could have searched for.  Reblogs from other people do not change tags, so there is no way they could have come across any of my posts without going directly to my blog to do so, and in both instances, they were the first people not among my followers to reblog them.  And, even if they had reblogged it from someone they were following, that would mean that there are people simultaneously following both sides, which is questionable behavior at best.

So, who’s “stalking” whom, now?

i have a justifiable cause. i have to make sure you don’t bad mouth me behind my back like some sly fedora-toting bitch.

i like this anon who is that

Are….are you actually fucking serious?

Who seriously cares that much about what other people on the internet that they’ll never even meet in person are saying about them??  Do you…really not realize how unbelievably sad that sounds?

Is this normal behavior for people, now, or something?  To be completely obsessed with what others are saying “behind their backs”?  I don’t…I am literally just dumbfounded.  What kind of an empty, miserable existence does a person even have to lead to spend so much time fixated on the words of people that will never significantly affect their lives?  Why in the hell would you purposefully wallow in negativity, rather than do something you actually enjoy?

That is seriously the dumbest shit I have ever heard.

Even considering everything that’s ever come out of the mouth of my brother, that is still the dumbest shit I have ever heard.

Oh dear. Tenafly, don’t be trolled by these multi-headmate loonies. You’re better than that.

Can you still block anons to find out who they are?

In a ‘community’ with a follow option, where any conversation can be added to at the click of a button it is called stalking! hahahha
