one thing I find hilarious is when Shakespeare quotes are used out of context
like, people are always saying “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” as if it’s all deep and meaningful when…
I was mucking around with Audacity, listening to songs in reverse. For the fun of it, I put on everyone’s favorite song, Blurred Lines. And shockingly, I heard something I had never expected to hear. Robin Thicke was fooling us this whole time. He wasn’t trying to be misogynistic, he wanted us to listen closer to the song and understand that he in fact does believe his lady partner needs to be treated with the utmost respect.
You might find it VERY hard to believe, but I implore you to listen very closely (with headphones if you can, because it can be hard to hear). The message I’m talking about comes in around the 30 second mark.
After the 30sec mark I just kind of stared at my wall for the rest of the song trying to accept what I just heard.
IM FUCKING DONE

This is one of the best responses to men against abortion ever
imagine a pacific rim video game with really great character customisation and you start in jaeger training or something and instead of romance options there’s drift compatibility and the person you get as a partner depends on which dialogue choices you pick throughout all of your training and instead of classes there’s different types of jaeger and THEN YOU GO KICK SOME KAIJU ASS
Allow me to ignore you for a second and address my fellow fakers.
Ladies, I submit to you this new and crazy notion:
Boys don’t like comics.
Really. I know they say they do, and we just accept it as fact, but that’s where we’re going wrong. When quizzed, boys genuinely have no idea. They’re just in it for the tights and cape. They like the attention. And that’s fine if you’re packing a big utility belt; I’d like to see that kind of man action at my cons. But for those of you with Ant Man in their trousers… it’s time to hang up the spandex.
It’s actually kind of sad that boys feel the need to lie like this. I mean, they should spend less time trying to impress us, and more time fixing cars, or whatever it is they like to do. Leave the comics to the real fans. I bet they don’t even know Barbara Gordon’s birthday. Try asking a Geek Boy when Hal Jordan made his first appearance. The blank look of his face would be sweet if he wasn’t so pathetic.
Look, I’m not an misandrist! I have plenty of guy friends, and I even have a brother! It’s just that girls are naturally more intelligent. We understand the complex story lines of a comic series easier than boys do. It’s science! Boys are good at other things. But boys who say they like comic books… they just want all the girls to look at them. I say we don’t give them the satisfaction.
And if you don’t agree with anything I’ve just written…
Because it’s a pathetic argument. And it’s just as pathetic when it’s aimed at girls.
I shouldn’t have to flash my nerd credentials whenever some self-appointed gatekeeper of the Elysium Fields of geekdom decides that there is no way I could like something as macho as comics.
Newsflash! There is no reason to attach a gender to the act of reading. I enjoy comics as much as I enjoy reading fantasy and sci-fi. There is no reason for you to come on to my blog and be so rude.
And as a side-note, I’m assuming Baletard is your uber-offensive way of saying my love of Batman stems from the Nolan films. Allow me to correct this idea by saying that I don’t think any modern adaptation in live-action fully appreciates how complex Batman is, and the Nolan versions are the worst. I prefer my Caped Crusader to be animated.
I could list my comics, my graphic novels, my collectibles or anything else it takes to get my nerd passport approved. But what is it about the genre that makes you hate women so much? You seem to misunderstand something fundamental about women:
We are not here for your amusement. We are not here to impress you. Sometimes we are here to buy Nightwing and be our own people without being judged by awful elitists like yourself
Thank you for visiting my blog. Kindly leave your hate at the door next time.
