I’m worried about that 5% who doesn’t talk to their cats.
The other five percent are lying.
They reserve the truth for their cats.
just because it is an opinion
does not mean it is intrinsically valid or valuable
does not mean it is simply an aside incapable of causing harm
does not mean it even has to be said
especially if it is factually incorrect and a continuation of falsehoods that drive in problems rather than ease them
so just because it is an opinion does not mean we can’t tell you it isn’t welcome
if you back your thoughts up with FACTS rather than OPINIONS
you wouldn’t feel so attacked and hurt when people cut your OPINION down to its rightful place
it’s a poor life that can only rely on OPINION for worth
especially on opinions based on utterly wrong statements and uncritical thought
Wow, racism and heterosexism together in one dish? Great job, medical industry!
I saw a news report about this on T.V., she was a straight A Student who had perfect attendance and everything. Everyone loved and respected her for her skills, but when she started this experiment and people thought she was pregnant, they started treating her like garbage. Even her teachers started looking down on her like she was scum of the earth. The only people who knew she was doing this as an experiment were her school principle, her health care teacher and her father. Her own mother thought she was pregnant.
I mean even her friends turned on her, it was horrid. Very very sad, and as soon as she revealed during an assembly that the pregnancy was false, a lot of people were in shock as she brought up all the horrible things they said and did to her because they thought she was pregnant.
The reason for the experiment was to see how people would react and treat her if they thought she was pregnant, as apposed as to treating her as the straight A “Perfect” student they usually did. And it proved that people were horrible scumbags too her as soon as they thought she was.
because I’m really fucking sick of teenagers joking that ‘us virgins are like an endangered species lol’
So basically, nothing’s changed? Yea.
Doesn’t that say something about how jobs and education work in this country?
I mean, shouldn’t one’s academic carreer be more focused on, say…how much you learn? Or your willingness to learn? Instead of willpower and the self-control to hold back? Shouldn’t school focus on not holding back? Maybe not in all areas, yes, but in a lot of very crucial areas like teaching kids to question and break down preconceived notions instead of teaching them how to follow rules.
This is my problem with straight men.
Me being nice and pleasant = me trying to get at your crotch.
God forbid I’m just trying to do my job and be pleasant and shit.
And thus leading to, “God why are you such a tease!” and “Shit, man, that bitch lead me on and everything-now I’m totally friendzoned!”
