PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.

One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.

The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.

Vocabulary is important.

“Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance.”

Woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects.

He doesn’t indiscriminately kill random characters.

He intentionally and deliberately kills characters for whom it makes sense to die.

An unusual amount of characters die in his books because most writers won’t commit to realism enough to do the same.

Windsor Is Coming

Queen Elizabeth II paid a visit to the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Ireland, on Tuesday. Look out, Westeros. Though she may already be sitting on the Throne of England, it looks like Queen Elizabeth II has her eyes on the Iron Throne too.

Amazing. This and that the British Monarchy is on Instagram.

What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?

this is Joff Baratheon, from Game of Trones. He’s actually one of the only truly likeable characters in the series - he gets onto the throne way too young but makes a really good go of being a fair and kind ruler. He has a relationship with a girl earlier that’s not this one but due to circumstances that are spoilers, they have to split up and he deal with it in a really mature inspiring way that you don’t get to see much in TV shows these days.  Here he is at his wedding to this new girl, Maegery, and it’s one of the most beautiful episodes of the show so far, actually.

LAUGHING SO HARD RN

It is true, though, that the counterculture of the 1960s has become the mainstream culture of today. The drug usage, the promiscuity, the parents who are friends rather than adults, have all become engrained as major components of the modern world. Everything that used to just be part of a ridiculed subset of society has become the new “normal” and anyone who doesn’t engage in those sorts of degenerate behaviors is the new outcast.

I know, it’s wonderful! :)

We also let black people vote now.

What’s your opinion on using animals for science?

We have prisons full of child molesters so I don’t know why we continue to test on animals

I couldn’t have thought of a more perfect response
