Things not to say to me while I’m eating:
- That’s a lot of food
- That’s not enough food
- You’re going to eat all of that???!??
- That looks gross
- That’s not healthy
- That looks healthy
- That’s disgusting
- Why are you eating that?
- I’m glad you’re eating more
In case you didn’t understand, DON’T MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT MY EATING/FOOD/INTAKE WHETHER IT BE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT.
I thought to myself when I saw this, “no. This has to be some one being silly. This has to be something some one fabricated to make microsoft look worse and people just aren’t checking the source.”
AND IT GOT WORSE:
remember when the basic fucking concept of a commodity was that buying something meant it was yours
I want everyone to think long and hard on this information.
This means that you are not buying your games. You are paying 60+ dollars to rent the games from Microsoft, and they can take their game back whenever they feel like it.
You will not own your game. You will not own your console. Essentially, Microsoft is saying “We can disable your games and cut you off from accessing your console whenever we choose to.” Because a ban that locks your XBox Live account means that you will be locked out from all non-game functionality of the system, and by revoking your ‘licenses’ on all your games associated with your account, they can then disable each and every game you own for the system. Leaving you with a five hundred dollar cable receiver. Or, in the case of most users of the console, a five hundred dollar paperweight.
All because you accidentally walked into some online glitch and the rest of the players rage-report you for cheating.
This is unacceptable. Buy any console but an XBox One. Do not support Microsoft’s sudden belief that they own everything despite our purchase of it, and we have to prove we’re worthy of being shared with by paying exorbitant fees and jumping through constant hoops and hoping someone doesn’t report us for cheating because we made them mad in an online game.
Tell Microsoft ‘No,’ and do not give them your hard-earned money for what amounts to a video game subscription service with a $500 starting fee and $60+ dollar purchases.
Sounds like Microsoft is taking a page out of Amazon’s book.
Yeah, this is why I’m wary of Kindles etc. Not because paper books are more “authentic”, but because if they chose, someone could flick a switch and erase my book collection.

I want to stress this again: In many, many parts of the country right now, if you want to go to see a movie in the theater and see a current movie about a woman — any story about any woman that isn’t a documentary or a cartoon — you can’t. You cannot.
There are not any.
You cannot take yourself to one, take your friend to one, take your daughter to one. There are not any. By far your best shot, numbers-wise, at finding one that’s at least even-handedly featuring a man and a woman is Before Midnight (at 891 theaters) so I hope you like it. Because it’s pretty much that or a solid, impenetrable wall of movies about dudes.
Dudes in capes, dudes in cars, dudes in space, dudes drinking, dudes smoking, dudes doing magic tricks, dudes being funny, dudes being dramatic, dudes flying through the air, dudes blowing up, dudes getting killed, dudes saving and kissing women and children, and dudes glowering at each other.
Somebody asked me this morning what “the women” are going to do about this. I don’t know. I honestly am at the point where I have no idea what to do about it. Stop going to the movies? Boycott everything?
They put up Bridesmaids, we went. They put up Pitch Perfect, we went. They put up The Devil Wears Prada, which was in two-thousand-meryl-streeping-oh-six, and we went (and by “we,” I do not just mean women; I mean we, the humans), and all of it has led right here, right to this place. Right to the land of zippedy-doo-dah. You can apparently make an endless collection of high-priced action flops and everybody says “win some, lose some” and nobody decides that They Are Poison, but it feels like every “surprise success” about women is an anomaly and every failure is an abject lesson about how we really ought to just leave it all to The Rock. — At The Movies, The Women Are Gone (via clambistro)
If you have this tshirt I automatically hate you with every fiber of my fucking being
and here we have handy misogynist trackers! t-shirts like this help you identify:
✔ who’s likely to disrespect women
✔ who’s likely to objectify women
✔ who expects women to submit to them
✔ who to just generally stay the fuck away from
I have a vagina & I would wear this shirt . Just sayin’ ; it’s just a fucking shirt . Get your head out of your ass .
You’re right, it’s just a fucking shirt! Why should you care? In truth, you don’t have to. You do you.
Personally, I care because I understand that sexism negatively affects everyone - including you! Including me! Including all men and all women! I also care because I know that all forms of sexism are destructive. Whether it’s on a shirt in the form of a joke, or coming out of someone’s mouth in the form of slut shame - all forms of sexism play their own role in creating the culture we live in. I care because I believe that by saying “it’s just a shirt! get your head out of your ass!” that we uncritically dismiss the attitude that created this shirt/popular phrase in the first place. The attitude where it’s cool/funny/edgy to continue a long historical pattern of degrading someone (women) because of something they can’t control (their gender). Not in my house muthafucka. Personally, I think everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their identity. Inequality just ain’t right girl. I hope that one day you come to see feel the same!

I’d wear this shirt if every word in black lettering was erased. That way, everybody will be asked to make me a sandwich.

fucking powerful. and unfortunately true
Tall people are assholes.
Tall people are assholes.
I don’t think it meant that tall people are assholes. I think it means that as you get older and older the more pain and suffering you’re put through, the more you learn to trust people less and less and you begin to grow into a selfish human being. You stop letting people in to your life and stop loving. You forget what love is since you’ve gone through life being ignored and taken advantage of.
Tall people are assholes.
Yeah tall people are assholes
I am an asshole.
I prefer to think of myself as “less short”, thank you so much indeed.
