Anonymous asked: 3 way relationships and open relationships are what give gay guys their awful, slutty image. I hate guys who think because they're gay it means it's completely acceptable to sleep around, have multiple partners, have partners way too young or old for them, think it's their right to be treated equally while behaving more like animals than civilised, committed couples in a relationship. It just isn't right and it isn't fair for the rest of the gay community who don't feel that way. Your view?
Where do i even begin with this. lol
I just love the way you threw such a sloppy wad of ignorance at me and then topped it off with “Your view?” ^_^
Alright lets begin. I’m gonna try and break it down cuz I don’t wanna miss a single point.
"3 way relationships and open relationships are what give gay guys their awful, slutty image."
Apparently you think that gay people invented open relationships or poly-amory. That’s sort of hilarious. Clearly the gays don’t have a monopoly on this, especially the open thing. But you know what’s more striking about your message? The fact that you talk like this defender of our gay values and our gay rights yet here you are acting exactly like the people that oppress us the most. People that think their own personal truth is the only truth, like how marriage should be defined, what rights we should have and not have and in your case how a relationship should and shouldn’t be. Close-minded, black-and-white, ignorant people (like you) try to bring us down, every day, yet here you are, attempting to diminish and belittle my way of life and my relationship by pretending your world view is the only view.
You basically called me a slut in your first sentence so here’s how you are coming off right off the bat: Sexually Repressed.
"I hate guys who think because they’re gay it means it’s completely acceptable to sleep around, have multiple partners, have partners way too young or old for them…"
You know, you can be the most horrible, degenerate of a person and still be monogamous… just like you can be a good, kind-hearted, law-abiding citizen and be open or poly-amorous. I don’t pretend that being in an open relationship, a poly, or a combination of both is for everyone, or that it is somehow better than a monogamous relationship. See, if I did that then I’d come off ignorant and biased like you. Thankfully, everyone is different and people can find happiness and fulfillment in all sorts of different ways.
So Clif is 8 years older than me. Is that too old for me? You should really create some sort of chart for the rest of us to follow. Should we just stick to our age bracket? How much wiggle room do we get? Damn. That’s pretty stressful, but thankfully you are here to straighten us out.
Seriously though, who gives a shit? At the end of the day the only thing that matters is compatibility and commonality. You can have the most mature 20-something-year-old out there, or a somewhat childish 40-something-year-old guy, and they can meet in the middle and be extremely happy. And that’s without even going into attraction. Some guys like young guys, some like older. Just like some guys like skinny guys, some like chubby guys… Who are you to say what kind of people should or shouldn’t be together?
"…think it’s their right to be treated equally while behaving more like animals than civilized, committed couples in a relationship.”
Now here’s the part where I thought to myself DAMN! This guy has some big hairy balls writing this to me of all people.
Let me educate you on the specifics of my relationship.
I am MARRIED. I have been with this man for approximately 9 years, almost 4 of which as a legally married couple. Clif isn’t my boyfriend, my lover or my partner, he is my HUSBAND, and you wanna lecture me on the definition of commitment? That’s rich.
So first you called me “slutty” and now apparently I’m some sort of “uncivilized animal”. Why? Because we choose not to limit ourselves sexually? Because we have been able to move past the normal insecurities and fears that plague most relationships (gay or straight)? Because we have achieved such an almost zen level of respect and trust for one-another that it allows us certain freedoms without undermining the rock solid foundation that we have built over many years? I think what really bothers you is not that we are somehow ruining the fabric of gay moral values but the fact that we somehow get away with living this sort of open-minded and free lifestyle, which when you add poly-amory to the equation, has been and hopefully will someday be again over-flowing with love. Yet there you are, probably alone, full of limits and boundaries in your head, feeling a little envious.
"It just isn’t right and it isn’t fair for the rest of the gay community who don’t feel that way."
I know. Its very unfair. Here I am obviously ruining your life and your chances at happiness by simply living my life hundreds if not thousands of miles away. Its a travesty.
If you don’t “feel that way” then that’s perfectly fine. No one is trying to change your mind. Live your life whichever way you see fit, but keep your opinions about everyone else’s life to yourself.
And by the way, since you’re obviously the Bill O’Reilly of gay values then what the hell are you doing even glancing at my blog? are you like new here or something? :P
Have a nice day.
wow. I guess this struck some sort of chord. I’m very humbled.
the very last line earned a reblog
THIS.People need to understand the truth
reblog this PLEASE
i am going to print this and whip out a copy whenever it’s relevant.
I will never not reblog this
YES, THIS, YES
Contribute to my mods if you want
Since I have a job now and thus I’m not able to code as frequently on my mods as before, I decided to make all my mods open source (something I’ve planned some time already). Some are already, some still need to be uploaded.
Why am I doing this? Obviously because I have less free time to spend on modding. Also maybe you can learn something from the source.
If you want to contribute to the mod(s) I’ve made / manage, Go to the GitHub repo and fork it, make yor changes / additions and submit a Pull Request (PR).
If you don’t know how to do that, yu can get started here: https://help.github.com/
To get all my currently available repos, go here:
How to setup the source
First off: some mods, need to be updated to my dropbox version, so if you don’t see any commits which are from today (02.12.2013 [12/02/2013]) it’s most likely not from my dropbox and “too old”, so wait until I commit something.
You should first off fork the Manager Pack. It has instructions on how to “install” it into your MCP workspace.
Then fork the mod you want to update / make changes to.
If you’re done, submit a PR. I will review it and may or may not (with explanation on why not) commit it into the master branch.
I will give proper credit where it’s due, but don’t be afraid to put a copyright onto one of your classes, so it’s obvious that this isn’t from me.
I still will be able to code for my mods and I always will. But first I want to finish a program, which will make it easier forme to manage my modding environment better.
Here’s a sneak peek:
(tumblr is a douce and resized the image, here’s the original: http://puu.sh/5zGAv.png)
What people think an animal should be kept in and what the animal actually should be kept in. (click the pictures)
Not based on personal preference, but observable fact. An animal kept in an environment that is too small is unhappy and stressed. This can absolutely lead to a short miserable life.
I see a lot of people, virtually every day, who have these preconceived notions about what an animal can live in. A hamster lives in a hamster cage of course, because the happy little hamster on the box says so! This cage is for finches, they even keep them in it at the store! My friend had a rabbit and it lived in that cage so I’ll get that one. This sort of dangerous socially accepted neglect is not just limited to bettas and goldfish. Mammals and birds are subject to it as well.
What people don’t realize is that almost all commercial or common cages are completely unacceptable as homes for what they are marketed for. Those guinea pig/rabbit cages? Garbage. Those tiny finch cages? Torture. That cute technicolor hamster cage? A gimmick.
All animals need a certain amount of space for enrichment and general well being. That does not mean the cages someone is trying to sell you. It means the cages that are best.
And to all those people who are thinking “Well I had a hamster in a cage that size and it was fine.”
You have only observed your animal. You have only observed the animal in a confined space and most likely showing signs of distress or behavioral problems. But you interpreted it as normal because that is all you know. You haven’t seen rabbits in appropriate sized cages. You haven’t seen parakeets in appropriate cages. You haven’t seen a hamster who is happy.
Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined hamsters. (The same applies to mice, gerbils, and rats):
- Biting the cage bars
- Obsessive digging
- "Laziness" (lack of foraging/exploring)
- Running in circles
Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined rabbits:
- Biting the cage bars
- Running in circles
- Bouncing off the cage walls
- Aggression, irritability when being held
- Cage aggression
- Constantly banging toys/decor around
Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined guinea pigs
- Biting the cage bars
- Banging their water bottle on the side of the enclosure constantly
- Aggression toward other guinea pigs or you
Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined parakeets
- Feather plucking
- Aggression to other parakeets
- Repetitive behaviors (constant singing into a corner, going from the same perch to the same perch over and over again)
Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined finches
- Aggression to other finches
- Flight tracing: Going from one perch to another in the exact same spot the exact same way over and over again
Animals are more complex than people give them credit for. They need to do all of the natural behaviors they’re built to do. Exploring, foraging, playing, hiding, interacting (or not interacting) with another animal, etc. All of this is taken from them in cages like the ones above.
People need to educate themselves about an animal before getting one. It’s a thought that’s been said a million times over and yet nobody actually does it. The reality is people who want a hamster/guinea pig/rabbit are not going to sit down and read ten articles and three books waiting 2 months while they set everything up unless they are already enthusiasts who are willing to put that much into their pets. I can say from experience that over 80% of the people who buy pets buy them to make their kids happy with no regard to what the animal needs. What is most important to them is getting a present for their child regardless of any consequences that decision comes with.
So we have to try and get this information out there. We have to try and make THIS the general knowledge about these animals.
Resources and very good reads for anyone who has or wants any of the animals listed here. I’ll add more when I find them.
Guinea pigs: X
This is very important. i have seen so many animal live unfulfilled and short lives because of this.

Since everyone is talking about the new comment system on YT.
First of: I am not one of those guys which are like “WAH, THE NEW SYSTEM IS UTTERLY BULLSHIT, BRING BACK THE OLD SYSTEM!” nor am I praising it and wish everyone else who think otherwise to go to hell. This is my objective-as-it-gets look at the new system, so here we go:
If you’re living under a rock, the new comment system is an integration from Google+ (a social network from Google) and therefor you must be logged in to your G+ account to comment now on YT, whether you’re using G+ or not.
Albeit you hate the new comment sys, you must admit it has its advantages
- You can write seemingly endless comments, some may see this as negative, I see it somewhat positive, although I think they should have a character limitation
- You can link stuff now, which is good and also bad. The good thing is you don’t have to copy the link and alter it from a comment
- YouTubers can now blacklist phrases to prevent spam
- In case you use G+, you only need to login to G+ to use both sites (G+ and YT) now
Yes, I’ll also list the negative things
- Because of the new unlimited length of comments you see an increase of spam and unneccessary ASCII art (wheter these are shibes or penises)
- Because you can click on links directly, it opens door for spammers to post links to virus sites
- The new “top comment” algorythm is buggy and needs to be fixed:
Those top comments are mostly virus links, spam, self-advertisers, troll/hate comments etc. Although this isn’t necessary common in the german community (at least I’ve seen far less of those things there) I’ve seen this often in the “international space”
- You can’t disable the top comments anymore
- You can’t disable the auto-update for the “newest comments” section anymore
- I don’t know if it’s true, but I’ve read that YouTubers get spammed with notifications every time a new comment on a video is posted
As a conclusion, I don’t mind integration of G+ in YouTube, as long as it’s not featuring bugs / features which are heavily exploited or removes comfort features (like the auto-update disable option)
If anyone has suggestions / facts which are wrong or missing, I’ll add those in this list.
TL;DR: Then new comment system is not bad, but needs a lot of improvement.
- fandoms dont own tumblr
- hipsters dont own tumblr
- humour blogs dont own tumblr
you wanna know who owns tumblr??
THIS WAS A PICTURE OF APH ROMANO AND NOW IT’S APH ENGLAND WTF
NO THIS WAS TOGAMI LIKE TWO SECONDS AGO WHAT THE SHIT
it’s a vileplume now
It somehow transformed into my twitter avatar… well…
Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.
So that’s cool and everything, but maybe some of you would be interested to know why this is a significant find? Beyond just its record-setting bigness.
Since Einstein, physicists have accepted something called the Cosmological Principle, which states that the universe looks the same everywhere if you view it on a large enough scale. You might find some weird shit over here, and some other freaky shit over there, but if you pull back the camera far enough, you’ll find that same weird and/or freaky shit cropping up over and over again in a fairly regular distribution. This is because the universe is (probably) infinite in size and (we are pretty darn sure) has, and has always had, the same forces acting on it everywhere.
So why is this new LQG so radical? (It stands for ‘Large Quasar Group,’ btw, not ‘Light Quasar Group.’)
Well, let’s try to comprehend the scale we’re dealing with. A ‘megaparsec,’ written Mpc, is about 3.2 million light years long. The Milky Way is about 0.03 Mpc across (or 100,000 light years). The distance between our galaxy and Andromeda, our closest galactic neighbor, is 0.75 Mpc, or 2.5 million light years. LQGs are usually about 200 Mpc across. Assuming a logarithmic distribution of weird shit outliers (if you don’t know how logarithmic distribution curves work, don’t worry about it), cosmologists predicted that nothing in the universe should be more than 370 Mpc across.
This new LQG is 1200 Mpc long. That’s four billion light years. Four BILLION LIGHT YEARS. Just to travel from one side to the other of this one thing. I mean for fuck’s sake, the universe is only about 14 billion years old! How many of these things could there be?
Right now it looks like the Cosmological Principle might be out the window, unless physicists can find some way to make the existence of this new LQG work with the math (and boy, are they trying). And that’s totally baffling. It would mean—well, we don’t have any idea what it would mean. That the universe isn’t essentially uniform? That some ‘special’ physics apply/applied in some places but not in others? That Something Happened that is totally outside our current ability to understand or quantify stuff happening?
By the way, no one lives there. The radiation from so many quasars would sterilize rock.
are you telling us astronomers have discovered something which is literally fucktuple the size of anything else previously estimated to exist
Anything that fucking rewrites all of what we know about the universe needs to get its ass on my blog. It’s giant, glowy, black hole filled ass.
Wondering how many times I can use the word “fucktuple” today without arousing suspicion. :)
fucktuple has now also forever entered my vocabulary
Reblogging for both “fucktuple” and the absolute amazingness of the crazy space shit going on.
I’m in, too.
