This blog is mostly filled with whatever catches my eye at the moment. Also a lot of arguing. And Doctor Who. Every now and then I might post a poem or something I've written, but I haven't in ages so don't count on it.

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

The math is wayyyy complex, but kind of breaks down to:
More money in more pockets=more purchasing=stronger economy
More money in more pockets=wider tax base with fewer exemptions (less necessary)
Stronger economy+wider tax base=much higher federal revenues=more services.
To the individual it looks like: “Well, I jumped a tax bracket or seven, but since I’m making 70-100% more, I can afford to pay the 30% off the top, get myself a place to live, buy food, and still enjoy these awesome services.”

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”

That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?

Honest question, dudes.

That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.

So what do we do about it?

This.

This is the most accurate gif of Florida I have ever seen.

 ”What the fuck?” 

She’s not even scared, she’s just mad and confused.

baby gators are basically confused sharp bunnies who wander into other people’s pools for a dip and some sunbathing and might gnaw on u. mommas are the scary ones.

confused sharp bunnies

i’d argue that you don’t even have to worry about mommas.  alligators are literally stoners.  like don’t fuck with their stuff and they’ll just chill and leave you alone.

I wish people would stop talking about “Opheliac” like it’s a real personality type or something. It’s a made up word with a nebulous definition, at best, that EA made up, based on her kind of skewed analysis of Ophelia. I wish everyone (EA included) would quit acting like it’s at all legitimate.

I’m really glad I’m not the only one who hates that stupid fucking word.

As someone who has changed their name just because I wanted to and also is a rising somewhat public person, it pisses me off when people spread her birth name around just to mess with her. Yeah, she should have just said she changed it and doesn’t want to talk about it as it doesn’t matter or something. No, that doesn’t justify people being an arse about it - to those of you it concerns, get your shit together.

Yeah, the whole, “It’s her REAL name.” is bullshit because it isn’t. She changed it. And that’s that. 
[side note: this confessor should talk to me because we’ve had a similar experience ^_^]

Except, as MANY people have explained, at length, she didn’t fucking change her name. So nice try, but no. Her surname is Fritzges- always has been and always will be, unless she changes it. Which, again, she hasn’t. You and the confessor don’t have a damn clue what you’re talking about, so perhaps you should avoid voicing an opinion on the topic until you do.

Iunno, thought she changed it last year ~officially~. Calm down.

Don’t tell me to calm down. I’m getting real sick of people pissing and moaning every time people have some kind of criticism against EA. Especially when the people whining about the criticism are full of shit and can’t form valid arguments to back themselves up.

And whether she legally changed it or not (and no- there was never any indication that she did), it has never been her birth name, which still means she’s being shitty when she tries to claim that it’s always been her name.
