The best thing about Yugioh is how seriously Kaiba takes his card games. And I know what you’re thinking- everyone takes it seriously in that show. But most of the characters have a reason to. They believe in the pharaoh and the magical background of it and how it can affect their world. Kaiba? Nah man, dude just really fucking loves card games to the extreme
Don’t you love that phrase? It’s been getting used a lot lately. Generally, you hear it when shitty people try to defend their equally shitty actions, words, and opinions. Now, someone needs to explain this to me:
Why do people think it’s cool and edgy to make fun of people who have compassion and empathy?
And the inevitable answer? "Welcome to the real world!" Are you on the narcotics, people? I mean, don’t get me wrong, this world has PLENTY of assholes and douchebags, I’ve seen my fair share in the years I’ve been alive. But, at the same time, this world is FULL of compassionate people and they live in the same world as the aforementioned assholes and douchebags. And yet, it boggles my mind to think that a lot of these self-important dudebros seem to legitimately believe that the “real” world means that anything remotely resembling empathy is “pussification.”
It’s been said before. Apologizing is not a weakness. Showing concern, compassion, empathy, etc. is not a weakness.
On the other hand, I’ve seen people use way too many cop-outs. Telling people that they need to learn to take a joke is nothing more than a tiring cop-out for when you tell jokes that people don’t find funny. It’s also a cop-out to try and explain away being a Captain Tryhard Coolkid by using slurs as an attempt to “stop censorship.”
With this whole JonTron thing, it’s so strange to me that people who publicly shit on those that have compassion and empathy then get outraged because they get exposed. Like… THAT’S what you choose to be pissed off about? That when you post shit in a public forum, other people might see what you write and post it for more people to see? Spread it around?
The amount of people that are upset because someone exposed their videogame hero man saying thoughtless shit is… astounding to me. They’re upset that when JonTron expressed an opinion, people expressed an opinion back and, for many people, that opinion was that JonTron is a clownboat. They can’t stand it and so they need to validate themselves by defending their besieged hero, because if enough people believe that JonTron is a shit person, then that must mean that they’re shit people for defending them and they can’t have people thinking that!
And then comes the onslaught of weak rationalizations, excuses, and defenses.
"It was a joke!"
"He didn’t mean it as a slur!"
"You need to take a joke!"
JonTron continues to spout his verbal effluvia for all to see and people are pissed at him. But his white knights can’t comprehend that people form opinions on other people based on what they say and do. His white knights fail to see that because he has expressed these opinions publicly, people will continue to judge him not by his YouTube videos but by his character. And they’re getting so upset that people are starting to think that JonTron is a shit person because he is saying shit things.
Welcome to the real world.
"Now"? That has been considered a slur for years, friend, and not by “you people on Tumblr”. Let’s break it down yet again!
Rosa’s Law and why it came to be
An Open Letter To Ann Coulter, by Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens
The Ringer star Eddie Barbanell
And a two-second Google search will bring up many, many more results exactly like this one: Stop The Word campaigns by celebrities, schools, and more.
The American Association For Mental Retardation voted to change its name to The American Association On Intellectual And Developmental Disabilities in 2006. The Associated Press struck the term from journalistic use in 2008. Rosa’s Law has been changing the federal terminology since it was introduced in 2009. It was removed from medical use in 2010.
All this because of thoughtless people just like Jontron, who has already inspired a lot of fellow assholes to vomit that word around to be “cool” just like him. By the by, it’s a lot closer to the definition of hate speech than it is free speech.
"Speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of e.g. race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation”
If he still wants to be an asshole while claiming to be a “just man”, that’s his choice. He could at least be honest about WHY IT MAKES HIM AN ASSHOLE, instead of trying to dismiss an issue that is very real and HAS BEEN very real as “lol Tumblr”.
it’s the latest fashion.
Finally was able to get strange journey. SUCH Good Times.

- 19 days late but Hillary Clinton finally comments on Ferguson and she didn’t victim blame or use false racial equivalences. She called out social injustices and the frayed relationships between police and community members. She even addressed white privilege and institutional racism. Good commentary but poor timing and lack of genuine feeling. Clinton’s statement (x)
