Bronies already made NSFW pictures of Stellar Eclipse, even though Sylvain Portelance, the OC’s creator and VA who has spinal muscular atrophy, and his mother asked people not to do so.

Also, apparently putting that OC on the show, even though it was a simple request from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is “political bullshit” and has no place in MLP.

I know I usually don’t post such negative stuff on this blog, but holy shit.

do action movies know they can have more than one female character

Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions. 

This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.

I would be doing it now but I’ve been having network troubles.

If things don’t work out, I’ll probably end up streaming The Bureau or that Resident Evil: Mercenaries doom wad. Maybe some flash games. Maybe the demo for Lisa! Who knows.

Edit: Five hours. 350 megabytes to download. Over five hours.

Download interrupted by a stream test. 319 megabytes. Can’t resume.

Stream cancelled.

Have you tried OBS?
OBS local video capture killed my frames like crazy. Shadowplay’s probably the best I’ve used, but I wish it’d let me do it in windowed/borderless mode because I hate having to risk the chance of crashing because I alt-tabbed while fullscreened.

They just added desktop recording a week ago. I don’t know if it works well, but I’m going to be streaming a browser game or two with it later today.

Last night, my brother was talking about a transgender girl in his class, who, to make this clear, ‘was male.’ They consistently used male pronouns and when I said that they should think about what they’re saying, specifically if this person would like being talked about with incorrect pronouns behind their back, they argued that because they were talking about “who he is, not who she wants to be,” they were obligated to do so, to be ‘accurate.’ When I argued—with more tact—that that was fucking bullshit and contradictory to every course of action they would take when discussing, conversing, or interacting with any human being that was not trans* (really, most GSM individuals as well), they said that I was not in a position to advocate for myself let alone someone else who had ‘LGBT interests.’

(Also my dad said “Oh, jesus…" when my brother mentioned that on her Facebook page she called herself a princess.)

This came on the heels of a discussion about AutismSpeaks where my mother defended the organization’s actions because they were essentially acting with the same intent one would have when trying to remove the need for corrective eye-wear in the human population. What she stated ended up being a self-defeating pro-eugenics argument that, when taken in any reasonable way, did not convince me that she understood why I can’t condone an organization like AutismSpeaks. She responded to only one of my many points and failed to address it properly. What about their misrepresentation, in claiming that they speak explicitly for autistic interests while not allowing any autistic people to participate in their decision making, or intentionally covering up autistic individuals that disagree with them? Regardless, she proposed that I make a blog specifically for the purpose advocating for myself as an autistic individual and my beliefs about AutismSpeaks. She implied, in more despair-inducing words, that my lack of self-advocacy has been the cause of my depression and anti-social behavior. This is why I’ve been blogging quite a bit more, just to get into the swing of things.

Within two days of that discussion, my parents tell me that I don’t have the right to advocate for my self or others on matters of gender or sexual identity—issues that are, in my case, simpler to discuss than autism or any of my numerous disabilities.

And I’m still the one with cognitive dissonance.

my TA just referred to the touhou song I was listening to as “classical music”

Your TA was correct. Classical music is defined by its influences, not by how old it is or what it’s used for. Compare ZUN’s music to Chopin or Rachmaninoff or Tsiolkovsky…

I can’t find the post, but there was a blog somewhere on Tumblr where a lady actually analyzed the Touhou music that is very obviously inspired by classical music and came to the conclusion that it was actually pop music because of the time signature or something like that. I’m pretty sure that’s not the appropriate way to classify a musical genre, just going by one element of musical theory seems much too limited.

Continuing to use the ponies as mouthpieces, I see?

the entire first page of your blog is made up of reblogs about how modern feminists are bitches and MRAs are unjustly treated, and your “blogs i follow” section is a rogues gallery of ‘edgy’ brony artists.
Please, tell me more about how bitter you are that a show you like was created with feminist ideals and wish that those darn feminists would go away, and let you enjoy images of the little horses calling each other slurs and doing something wacky like murdering babies or making rape jokes or whatever. Do you also message the other artists you like telling them to stop using characters as mouthpieces for their personal biases? I’m sure you probably don’t mind if the character is saying something that you personally agree with.
Anyway, this isn’t even a pony! This is clearly a unicorn. I don’t know how you even made the connection. Silly billy :P

"Pony" is purely semantics, and a great deal of this reblog is ad hominem.  But I would like to point out that the point of MLP is "friendship is magic", not "only friendship with girls is magic and I’d rather hang out with horrible women than reasonable men".  Like, it’s right there in the title, and it’s not gender specific in the slightest.
This picture isn’t the feminist ideals the show, they’re your feminist ideals, and therefore you are using this show and its characters as a mouthpiece.  The original criticism still stands.

I took a pre-existing sexist phrase (“bros before hoes”) and turned it into a phrase to express how I hate toxic misogynist culture, and you think that’s sexist against men. This is incredible

So you took one sexist comment and turned it into another sexist comment because you hate one type of extreme sexism?  You haven’t explained why this would justifiable, which would be why you have to “spell it out this much”.

are you seriously saying that you consider calling out posturing dudebro culture to be sexist against men

Not at all, but this isn’t calling it out.  This is replacing it with some other type of sexism.

please tell me how this is sexist.

For the same reason “literally anything before women” would be.  You’re saying that men are so undesirable you’d rather have anything else before them.  Including, I assume, LGBT+phobic, racist, white supremacist, otherwise completely bigoted women.  You’re therefore implying that the worst of women are better than the best of men.  It’s a generalisation.  Before you say “bros only mean dudebros”, the phrase you’re subverting applies the term “hoes” to all women (part of the reason it’s sexist) and “bros” to all men, so by reversing it and not specifying you’re making it about all men.
I wouldn’t care but this type of cutesy sexism is so common on here that it grates the Hell outta me.  Just because you’re trying to subvert “dudebro” culture doesn’t mean you have a ticket to say whatever you want.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE


Sorry for the language but I think this makes a point that EffNoMisconceptions will be able to understand.

On a related not, there’s this girl on my Facebook who’s always posting very Conservative status messages. Because I was friends with her, I assumed she went to my school or something. I finally clicked on her page: “0 friends in common.” How did I friend this person??

When I actually used Facebook, I’d run into that sort of thing quite a bit. I would assume that anyone that would link you and her unfriended her by the time you checked.

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit

HEY! Please, fact-check these things before you reblog them! I wanted this to be true, in its entirety, and I almost came away with that impression… but there’s a detail that’s been missing from all the reblogs of this that I’ve seen on my dashboard. Reuters is responsible for producing the graphic with the inverted Y axis. 

Note: BI reader P.A. Fedewa created an easier-to-read version of the above chart from Reuters. It more clearly shows that gun deaths increased between 2005 and 2007 by flipping the y-axis. We’re adding it to this post with his permission. The original chart and graphic design was done by Reuters.

That doesn’t mean that the information from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement wasn’t presented with an inverted Y axis.
We don’t have proof of Reuters ineptitude by way of failing to recognize that the information was twisted. We don’t have proof of any collusion between Reuters and the FDLE.
While we don’t have any explicit proof, we do have reason to believe that Reuters created the graphic with the intent to fool viewers into believing that Stand Your Ground decreased the number of gun deaths that were witnessed in the state of Florida.
