Hi for all those in the UK and other parts of Europe that have wanted to check out my online store, but didn’t want to pay the high shipping costs, I now have a store that ships from the UK! Check it out if you like.

I’m still working on adding items and finalizing the design, so it’ll be a little while before everything is all there. But there are a few t-shirts available now!

As a person who is already pretty mediocre about communication, how can i explain complicated, not well known about issues without sounding whiny and self absorbed, or should i even bother at all? Thanks.

If your intention is to explain issues and not to whine then you probably would do a better job at it that you are giving yourself credit for. You can try to anticipate the reactions that you will get and address them in advance. You have to keep in mind that if the people you are talking to are unreceptive or combative in the first place, it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into your explanation, it won’t get through to them. But that has nothing to do with you.

sorry if this is a weird question, but you make a lot of sense and i'd love to get your input...what is your opinion on lying about being a virgin? i'm 20 years old and a girl, and i feel like there's a stigma that "giving it up" for a woman is this really special thing, and she'll be obsessed with her first and so on, and i kinda just want a meaningless fuck, so if i'm asked can i just be like, "yo, i've done it before, but i don't have much experience"

you can do whatever you want. I think lying is generally pretty lame though. who cares what people think

what's the line for acquiescing to a social justice agenda? i mean, i'm all about not offending someone needlessly, but i just saw a post saying that in disney's pocahontas the scene where pocahontas is trying to leave and john smith like, grabs her hand, is perpetrating domestic violence and they called it "near-date-rape." i'm scared to disagree for fear of being insensitive or enabling, but at the same time these ideas seem extreme and minimize real domestic violence and sexual assault.

This is like my major problem with the social justice community on tumblr. It’s like a hivemind of people who just create these dogmatic rules about social justice, a lot of which makes no sense, (near date rape? This is absurd. You are not weird for being suspicious of this, because it is absurd) and if people disagree or dissent they get ostracized and unfollowed into oblivion.

The social justice community, not just on tumblr, but the internet in general is obnoxiously cynical and has no trust in the inherent goodness of human beings. They act as if humans default to evil. Everything that happens ever must be somehow a result of some injustice caused by the patriarchy or the white man or the straight man.

This is not to say that there aren’t real issues, or that privilege doesn’t exist, obviously. But when we are writing blog posts picking apart the sexism and racism of 20 year old cartoon movies, perhaps we are being a little opportunistic. People who do things like that give me the impression that they actually don’t give a shit about the problems in the world and just want something to yell about.

What’s the line? The line is subscribe to things that make sense to you, and reject things that don’t. Don’t go along with things “just because.” And never hold anything you believe as dogma, always be ready to change your mind if you are presented with evidence that says you should.

I know this isn't a question, but I feel the need to comment on your mention of gender as a human construct. Now, I'm not a scientist, but I read a lot of this and that within all fields of science, so correct me if I am wrong. To say that gender is a human construct isn't the whole truth. We do have specified genders, biologically. There's a difference between biological gender and social gender, however. Or sex and gender, to be more correct. I don't disagree, just wanted to point it out.

Yes sex and gender are two different things and one of those things is a social construct created by humans. We do not have “specified genders, biologically”. We barely have specified sexes biologically.

I never giving up Steak, so I don't oppose the first bitbof what you said. But I'm just saying we know animals can be depressed, gay, and bored so what's to say they can't be trans? We have no studies into it do we?

Gender is a human construct. We invented it. it makes little sense outside of a human context. The same goes for sexual identity. Exhibiting homosexual behavior is not what makes you ‘gay’. Identifying as gay is what makes you gay. also “having gender” is not an objective, measurable or diagnosable emotion like depression or boredom.

"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””



this is by no means a “rule” lol. if you think animals are people then perhaps you might follow this (not all people agree with this) and that’s fine
but nonhuman animals almost certainly don’t have a gender identity. (they also don’t care) so saying that we’re breaking some kind of rule when we don’t use gender pronouns when referring to them is silly

He sounds like such a d-bag. Just out loud say “I fear oblivion” and there you go. Undefinable proof he’s pretentious as fack

Yeah. Gus is supposed to be pretentious. That’s his character. That’s why it’s so weird that so many fans are getting mad at this. It’s an accurate assessment.

I understand he’s supposed to be pretentious but he’s getting unnecessary flack from people who haven’t read the books and don’t understand why he acts like a little shit sometimes…

Im not sure why people are getting upset when people are making an accurate characterization of a character. If anything, this is proof of the effectiveness of John Green’s writing. That’s the whole point of this trailer and of this scene in the book in general. It’s intended to establish Gus as a suave, yet full of shit teenager. If this clip were designed for people who’ve already read the book then it would explain more of Gus’s backstory, but it isn’t. It’s designed to elicit the response that it got, just like it was in the book.
