“A lion does not feel guilty when it kills a gazelle. Right? You do not feel guilty when you squash a fly. And I think that means something. I just think that really means something.” -Chronicle (2012)
“I like fangirls how I like my coffee. I hate coffee.” Three days after being spotted on a T-shrt for sale at WonderCon, this idiotic slogan is still making waves in the geek community.
Why? Well, for one thing, it seems like a perfect example of the hostile environment women have to deal with when they attend conventions. However, the T-shirt’s manufacturer, Tankhead Custom Tees, has just come forward to explain why the shirt isn’t sexist.
“the fangirl/fanboy shirts can best be explained like this: fangirls/boys =/= fans. Fans are people who like and genuinely respect a fandom, and it’s creators. Fangirls/boys are like those creepy fedora wearing neckbearded bronies, or hetalia fanfiction shippers, who make us all collectively cringe in pain at what they do to the things we love.
No one should ever defend these kinds of people. Seriously, they make the rest of us look bad.”
So, just to be clear here, the shirt isn’t insulting toward all women, just the ones who are the wrong kind of fan. …
again. listen. listen carefully. fangirl/fanboy is not a term any person uses on themselves. it’s a general term for people who take there love of whatever it is they love too far. the line of what makes a fangirl/fanboy is different to everyone but IT’S A NEGATIVE TERM.
it’s America term for otaku. if you called a japanese person an otaku they would be offended, if you called me a fangirl i would be offend
BECAUSE IT’S MEANT TO FUCKING OFFEND YOU.
it’s calling someone an asshole, or a bitch or a cunt. it’s a word MEANT to offend you. so lets break down this stupid shirt by replacing the words a little
"i like my assholes like i like my coffee, i hate coffee"
THIS IS 100% THE SAME THING. just let this one go. it’s not sexist, it’s not elitist it’s saying, I DONT LIKE DUMB PEOPLE. for the love of god.
If you actually think the word “fangirl” is synonymous with the word “asshole,” then maybe you should take a look at how the word is actually used in every day life, not by the idiots who use it in pejorative or insulting ways, but by actual fangirls who use it to describe who we are and what we do.
Also not an insult:
a collection of my favourite tracks, openings, endings, and character songs from anime, such as Shingeki no Kyojin, Kyoukai no Kanata, Ao No Exorcist, Free!, Ouran High School Host Club, Loveless, K-on, Noragami, DRAMAtical Murder and No.6. Because anime is fucking cool.-listen-
Because i’m a shitnerd.
there’s about 35 tracks, just under 2 hours worth of music!
WHAT THE FUCKAM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL
I feel like this needs to be added
rubdown HAVE YOU HEARD THIS
So our trailer went out today—with a release date!
Also, the new Dragon Age website went up—which I understand will have a lot of updates to come. That’s good.
My impression of the fan reaction so far has been mostly squeeing and excited grabby hands. Also a lot of screencaps of the group shot at the end of the video, along with comments of “who’s that?” and “we’re gonna bang, k?” …in other words, pretty standard and positive stuff.
Aaaand then I’m back to writing another codex.
it’s potential for art’s fault :^( (im bad singer too, don’t laff)
I HAVE AN EXAM IN AN HOUR YOU JERK HOW DARE YOU
YOU ARE BOTH ABSOLUTE BUTTFACES AND I LOVE YOU
Leopard geckos differ from the arboreal geckos in that they have eyelids. The genus name, Eublepharis, from the Greek and means “good eyelid.” The species name, macularius, isis from Latin and refers to the spots.
The leopard gecko excretes nitrogenous waste in solid crystal form as uric acid instead of as urine.
With eyesight comparable to a cat’s, geckos can see better than any other lizard whose vision has been studied.
