Somewhere in the reblog chain for this post, someone used the phrase ‘Get a real education before insulting a visionary thinker like Ayn Rand.’
Suddenly, I realise I have no reaction gifs but could never own enough to truly reflect my feelings at this.
I have So Many reaction gifs, let me help:
Grindr users on Scottish independence
I’ve spent the past couple of days asking several hundred Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country. Replies were of variable quality. Here is a representative sample:
The number of people I’ve questioned who are still present in my Grindr message history – that is, excluding the many people who blocked me – appears to add up to 655. I’ve divided their reactions into…
Other opinion: 20
Too horny to answer: 6
General rejection: 4
Did not respond: 318
So there you have it. When only decisive opinions are taken into account, Grindr votes NO to independence, with a 54-46% split. If this is reflected in the results of tomorrow’s referendum, we can assume the headless torsos have taken over Scotland and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
(The eagerly anticipated machotrouts.tumblr.com endorsement goes to a YES vote. I am a headful torso.)
The only post about the Scottish Independency Referendum I intend to reblog until it’s over.
(I’m in the ‘We love you and don’t want you to go, but it’s totally your decision and you don’t need to hear anything from me - wow, that’s a big decision to make, good luck!’ camp of English people who know exactly how little Scottish people want to hear from us right now.)
Rambling tags are fun, but please also tag for the content of your posts, otherwise people who might be triggered by things you don’t realise can’t exclude that stuff.
Confession: I don’t like how tight Captain America’s jogging top is in Cap 2. It looks uncomfortable, and it turns out I like that just as little on men as I do on women.
I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but it’s been building in me. I get queasy everytime I see a gif.Remember: this was a wardrobe/directoral decision, rather than the man’s. Men who genuinely want to wear too-tight tops to jog in should go right ahead. But male-uniboob-so-tight-your-nipples-look-trapped-and-I-can-see-your-pecks-struggling-to-escape just doesn’t do it for me. Get that man a top that fits!
One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences.
When I gain new followers
I had so many times growing up: ‘Why don’t you wear make-up?’
The answer, of course, was ‘I do, sometimes, but only when I want to’. So, naturally, I also got:
'Oh! You are wearing make-up! I don’t understand - why don’t you do this all the time?’
The real answer, of course, should have been:
'Why the fuck do I have to justify anything about what I do to you?!'
