why do people get so mad about puns? they’re literally the nicest kind of humor. they make nobody feel bad. it’s just clever. sometimes it’s original. learn to like puns. don’t let society run your life
Some may not admit it, but 99% of the anger people experience after a good pun comes from the fact that they didn’t think of it first.
my sim befriended the grim reaper when her roommate died in a fire and now she’s graduating from university and so i invited the grim reaper to the ceremony and when he came he had to change into formal clothing and this is what he looked like
My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican
it really grosses me out that so many media outlets and other users shit on sj blogs and yet have nothing to say about the huge populations of actual nazis and racists that exist on here. gotta make an enormous spectacle out of users who are writing about wanting human rights and an end to discrimination but are surprisingly silent against people who want to “annihilate Mexicans” (i wish i was kidding) and bring back the Reich
What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Could you please explain what the classes do? Just a basic explanation??
some are a bit hard but: maid - not sure. I go with either serves aspect or uses aspect as a shield. page: aspires towards their aspect. has to decide their own path. mage: unable to control the effect their aspect has on them, or in general. knight: either uses aspect as weapon or defends their aspect. not sure about the latter part rogue: steals aspect for benefit of others (canon) seer: gains knowledge related to their aspect. sylph: heals or fixes aspect. maybe just a general, uses aspect to help? thief: steals aspect for benefit of self (canon) heir: is responsible for their aspect in a session. sort of, given their role by their aspect and can’t choose it. bard: allows destruction of or through their aspect (canon) prince: destroys aspect or with aspect (canon) witch: manipulates aspect muse: inspires aspect or through aspect lord: I dunno, commands aspect?
