Just very small town Canadian girl. This tumblr is just random stuff I'm interested in. Which right now, at least, is James May, mostly. With some Richard Hammond and Top Gear thrown in. Maybe some Whitechapel, The Blacklist, Game of Thrones, Person of Interest and Duran Duran as well. And kittens. Or maybe not.

Re: following--feel free to follow me. At the moment, I'm mostly only following Top Gear focussed blogs.

Also, please note: I will not follow blogs of people that I know are under the age of 18--and if there is nothing to indicate your age on your blog and I don't know you well, then I won't follow you/follow you back. Personal policy, sorry.

I painted Nathan Fillion as captain Canada riding a giant beaver yesterday. Only tweeted it, but figured it may be tumblr worthy.

imagine a gay character who’s entire story isn’t surrounded by him being gay

slow clap for JK Rowling

No, no applause for Ms Rowling, at least on this issue.

What she did is called gay erasure. It would have cost her nothing to state IN THE BOOKS that the character was gay. Instead, she only mentions it after the fact. That’s not support in any way, shape or form.

IT IS GAY ERASURE and she should not be congratulated on it. Unless you’re a douchebag who thinks gay erasure is a good thing. IJS

You made a post about a haunted house that exploits and makes a spectacle out of a horrifying experience that happens to many people IRL and the word you chose to describe it with was "different"? Seriously? That's appalling.

I think all haunted houses do that from making monsters out of psychologically ill people to murdering baby scenes. 

While I completely understand if some people find it horrible, others find it thrilling.

That’s why the line for this house is over a mile long whenever it opens every Halloween. 

Blackout Haunted House is the first one I’m hearing about to use such disturbing scenes to scare people. And that’s what makes it different. No one is forcing you to go here if you find it offensive, but you shouldn’t bash on the people who do want to go to give themselves a good scare. 

Why shouldn’t I look negatively on people who enjoy seeing women being raped as part of a theme park? I love horror—movies, fiction, and enjoy being scared. But there’s a difference between horror and exploitation. Where does the line get drawn? Just because it’s popular doesn’t make it right or good.

By posting about this place, you are endorsing it. Which brings into question both your ethics and your judgement.

This is like saying that I support murder by watching movies about serial killers.

People go to experience these things BECAUSE they’re horrifying. It’s supposed to mess with you psychologically. And guess what? Rape is an extremely psychologically scarring occurrence. That’s why they use it. Do you think someone who witnessed their parents slaughtered in front of them would go to this? No, of course not, that would be extremely triggering. The same goes for rape victims.

The place is meant to be extreme and is the complete opposite of sensitive.

No, it’s not the same at all and I’m sorry but it is not okay, no matter how you try to justify it. There are many ways to be scared shitless, but watching women getting raped is not one that should be used. And if rape is so horrifying, why doesn’t this park have men being raped by men—surely that is far more horrifying for men than watching a woman being raped? 

Oh, yeah. Exactly. It’s not a turn on for men, so, yeah, can’t show THAT, we can’t exploit teh MEN, but it’s totally okay to exploit women. And if you don’t see a problem with that, I feel sorry for you, I really do.

A difference between horror and exploitation, yet most horror movies exploit the female body with the use of gratuitous nudity and sex scenes etc. 

Sixpencee said that the haunted house was “different” and she is correct in saying that because the scare tactics used ARE different. Are you also going to question the Cracked article writer’s ethics and judgement? Since he went there and experienced it, then wrote about the whole thing. 

Don’t take your frustrations/anger towards the content of the house out on sixpenceee, take it out on the people who actually simulate it and created the scenarios in the first place.

The fuck? I am neither frustrated nor angry—although I’m getting a little pissed off at your assumption about my state of mind. I was disappointed that sixpencee would post something like that, that’s all—and that she seemingly dimissed someone who replied with concern about the place. Am I going to judge the author of the Cracked article as well? If he’s not condemning the place, then yes, I would question his judgement and ethics.

There is a difference between gratuitous nudity and consensual sex scenes in a horror film and what happens at this so-called theme park. And why shouldn’t I call sixpencee out on what she’s posting (and by posting endorsing); it really does make me question her judgement and ethical stance. I see no reason to apologise for that nor that there’s anything wrong with doing so. The only way I can assess someone’s character on tumblr is through what they post. 

And just because I question her judgement does not mean that I think she’s horrible or awful—if I thought that I sure as hell wouldn’t follow her blog.

Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.

You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

image

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

image

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

image

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

image

Ahem.

Anti-vaxxers are a danger to the world and we need to stop them tbh

GODDAMMIT. I AM SICK OF THESE ANTI-VAXXER SHIT GOBLINS.

VACCINATE THOSE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO LEGITIMATELY CANNOT.

I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU THINK YOU’RE A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR SPARKLY CLOUD OF YOUR OWN SELF RIGHTEOUS FARTS THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES LIKE POLIO.

GET. A. GODDAMN. CLUE. THEN GET VACCINATED. VACCINATE YOUR SPAWN.

YOUR BATSHIT BELIEFS ARE KILLING PEOPLE.

In my opinion, refusing to vaccinate a child who can be vaccinated is tantamount to medical neglect. I am 100% done with being nice to anti-vaxxers. We need to bring back exiling people. Andrew Wakefield and Jenny McCarthy are the first to go.

Welcome to forced injections, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood liberal.

You’re goddamn right. Nothing says individual freedom like infecting newborns with measles because you’ve got your head jammed so far up your Ayn Rand-hypnotized, objectivist, unvaccinated butthole that vaccinations are suddenly LibertyStompers™ and therefore, causing an epidemic is no big — even though the parents of those too young to be vaccinated, or people who are immunocompromised don’t even get a choice about exposing themselves to harm from your special snowflake irresponsibility.

So yeah, if it’s Typhoid Mary² or “forced injections,” roll up your sleeve, wankstain.

same just happened to me, when I reblogged that…

And given how much some of you bang on about NEVER REPOST ALWAYS REBLOG, people are just doing what you’ve trained them to do. So, yeah, you do sound like douchebags complaining about this.

Can’t have things both ways. And don’t expect people to read shit.
