This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

"Stop teaching science, it offends me"

As a 4 year old, this was the funniest thing I’d ever seen. I think I talked about it for days.

This is still funny to me.

Grover bits were always the best.

Grover forever.

I can’t look at the adorable lesbian couples tumblr anymore because it makes me too depressed

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.

I feel so fucking needy right now. I feel like pouring my heart out to someone . I just want someone cool to think I am cool too. I want someone to interest me and challenge me and inspire me. I want to feel accepted and loved, even the parts of me that I’m embarrassed to show. The parts that don’t look good on paper (of which there are a lot). I want someone to see my beauty and my worth even though I don’t have my shit together AT ALL and feel like a human fail a lot of the time. Because that is how I see others, as a whole imperfect being that is unique and amazing in their own way. I see the soul and not how they measure up to society’s ideals and priorities. I don’t dismiss someone because they have made mistakes, but I feel like I’m not a pretty package that I can present to another person. I feel like most would see that I am bipolar, plus-sized, financially struggling, etc. and run 100 miles in the opposite direction. So I don’t try, I keep my head down and concentrate on improving the things I’m not happy with in my life, which is a good thing to a point. People who know me say I come across as confident and witty. I DO genuinely love myself and it has taken me many years to be able to say that. But still, I am incredibly lonely and I wonder when I will feel ready to say, “Here I am. Are you out there?”

Things To Remember

wittyandcharming:

  • Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
  • Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
  • Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.

I fear no one will ever see me and love me.

I fantasize about meeting someone amazing who shares my nerdy obsessions and gets my fandom references and feels. But then I realize that the majority of ladies who follow me are probably young enough to be my daughter.
