Why I didn't repost your "missing person" post

  • There’s no date on it.
  • There’s no number to call if we actually do see that person.
  • It’s just a random picture and I have to take your word for it that the person’s name, age, and last known location are all accurate.
  • Therefore:
  • For all I know that kid was found two years ago.
  • Or was never missing.
  • We don’t know if they’re actually missing or if the post was made by an abuser looking for their victim.

Last week a post circulated on Swedish facebook about a missing person. Turns out the woman had changed her identity to get away from her abusive (ex-)husband. Now she has to go through it all again. The police went out and told people to fucking stop spreading posts like these without thinking, and to call the police if you see the person, not some random you’ve never met.

THANK YOU. Also, if there’s no location. Should people be looking for the person around Atlanta? Around Glasgow? Dallas?

And again, because it can’t be said enough, call the cops if you see something, not some random-ass number.

European accents (and in general white people accents) are commonly perceived as attractive and endearing, while accents from basically any other part of the world are considered to be signs of laziness and disrespect and get routinely made fun of.

My whole family is Korean. My sister and I have grown up in the US so we can pretty much speak English. However, our parents speak very broken English. It makes me mad though because my mother has taken ESL classes at our local university and my father graduated from the University of Washington with a PhD in mechanical engineering, yet I constantly see them being made fun of by their coworkers or other people in general because “they’re too lazy to try to understand English.” My mom has spent countless nights crying whilst taking her classes because of the stress wishing she could speak half as fluently as I can. If you don’t know what it’s like trying to learn English as a second language, then you have no room to talk.

NEVER MAKE FUN OF SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS BROKEN ENGLISH. IT MEANS THEY SPEAK ONE MORE LANGUAGE THAN YOU DO. 

As someone who’s been trained to teach English to non-English speakers, allow me to inform you that English is an eldritch Frankenstein-esque abomination of borrowed words and mismatched grammatical rules.

Structurally, English is as convoluted and obtuse as any aspect of governmental bureaucracy, and it’s similarly societally entrenched in a way that makes people believe, and even insist, that’s just “the way of things.”

Here’s the facts: English is fucking hard. English doesn’t make logical sense. English is weird and horrible and inconsistent and makes common use of unusual phonemes that most adult speakers of other languages have to be mechanically taught to differentiate from similar sounds that are distinct in the English language. Without mechanical introduction and proper instruction, a lot of people cannot actually hear the difference in sounds you are mocking them for.

In some languages, [p] and [b] are indistinguishable. This is why you heard that gentleman say he would like a “can of Coke or Bebsi” with his order. It has nothing to do with laziness.

In some languages, [l] and [r] are indistinguishable. This is why you’re an asshole for going “me rikey” like the substitution is somehow comical. You’re a dick, and also most likely racist.

In the vast majority of languages, [θ] and [ð], known to English speakers as the voiceless (thing) and voiced (there) versions of the th sound, respectively, straight up does not even exist. This is why she says “teef” or “toofbrush,” why he keeps saying “ze” or “de” in place of “the,” and why they said “sank you very much” when you held open the door for them. 

There are sounds in English that a hell of a lot of speakers of other languages cannot teach themselves to recognize and recreate without assistance.

And, y’know, even if you get the screwy grammar and troublesome pronounciation down, English is a language in which very slight changes in intonation and word stress can completely change the meaning of a sentence. 

Like so:

But how are you doing? (Flamboyant pleasure to see someone, eagerness to catch up.)

But how are you doing? (Deflection from inquiries about self, moving conversation in a new direction.)

But how are you doing? (Concern, request for further or more accurate information.)

These are all totally different statements.

It’s incredibly easy to come across in a way you did not want or intend to when you’re not familiar with the particular ways in which saying something can change what it means to other people. 

Don’t you ever give people shit for not achieving or approaching fluency in English.

Repeat after me: English is a terrible fucking language and speaking it does not make me tangibly superior to anyone else in literally any way.

Ramadan PSA

mariesbookblog:

bimuslimheaux:

sumikakagami:

Hey guys, Ramadan is coming up in less than a month (roughly 3 weeks from now, no exact date yet) and I just wanted to make sure that some people were aware. Muslims around the globe are gonna be fasting along with other practices for a full month, so please be considerate by just doing a couple of easy things.

Tag all NSFW or NSFW-like posts: If your blog isn’t explicity NSFW, then please tag it. Even if it’s like “oh but there’s no nips showing”, if the picture is mostly sexual then tag it. People have different interpretations of what is and isn’t SFW so better safe than sorry.

Tag all food posts or mentions: This one isn’t that hard to understand. Muslims are going to be abstaining from food and drink (water included) for a minimum of 15 hours, sunrise to sunset, for a month straight. It’s not very fun to constantly see/hear about food when you’re starving. 

If anyone has any other topics I forgot/haven’t covered, then let me know. Otherwise please spread this and let others know. I’ll be queuing it up semi-regularly at different times. 

Last year we used NSFR which stands for ‘not safe for ramadan’. I forget who came up wit it but we should use tht again this yr.

Just in case people are curious, Ramadan starts June 17 and ends July 17.

THANK GOD IN SOUP WE CAN ADJUST/TOGGLE THE SFW/NSFW BUTTON UP THERE HAAAA

this means a lot, my boyfriend considers him self fat no matter what I tell him. One of my best guy friends thinks no one will date him because he is over weight which is the most un true thing every. All guys bodies are attractive.

This means a lot to me too because my boyfriend also thinks he’s fat regardless of what I say. The saddest day was when I watched him step on a scale and get sad at a number he saw. Spread the love. 

It’s not just the guys that are overweight either. One of my best friends is constantly poked fun at for being really skinny and he’s super self conscious about it. It’s just sad

I’m always going to reblog this

My ex boyfriend used to get depressed because of his weight. I kept telling him that I found him incredibly attractive anyway, but it wouldn’t matter. My nowadays boyfriend complains about being too skinny, which is so sad because he looks amazing. Both are beautiful, they just need to know that. They both try to make me feel confident about my body, but when I try to make them love theirs, it won’t work. Guys, you all are beautiful. We all are. Just spread the love

Random PSA

I just got reminded of this because someone tweeted about sneaking chipotle into the movie theater. 

When you sneak food into a theater, DO NOT throw the trash away in their garbage’s. The employees get written up, and possibly fired when the managers find out that people are sneaking in food. 
I understand that concessions is over priced so I get why you sneak in food, but please don’t get someone in trouble for it. Just throw away the trash at home. 

Reposting this because at my work tonight someone literally got fired on the spot because someone snuck a beer in. 
Don’t destroy someone’s source of income just because you didn’t want to put your garbage in your jacket for 10 minutes.

when you tell a man how he has hurt you and his response is “oh I’m such a piece of shit I’m a terrible person omg omg” and mentions/does nothing at all w/re: to your pain

(and then you’re the one reassuring and comforting him of course you are, again)

This is a abuser tactic. If a man does this, he is a toxic person and a manipulator who needs to be avoided forever.

Reblog the fuck out of this please

(Reblog or you are died to me)


No brony should scroll past this.

no brony? no one who has a brother should pass this, or sister or younger cousin, or a child, or fucking god child. NO ONE SHOULD PASS THIS. My brother watches my little pony, my lil amazing principles honor roll, first younger 8 year old brother watches fucking my little fucking pony.

 He tried to hide it from me and my mom and my step dad. i saw him watching it and i sat down with him and he was singing the fucking song. and i sung it with him and he noticed me and started looking guilty, i told him watch whatever you want. its for kids mathias. he said i thought it was just for girls and i said people said playing video games and comics were for boys but here i am with a batman comic in my drawer and god of war on my dresser. he said dont tell t (our step dad) and i said mathias its just a show.  he said i but i dont want him to know, he’ll think im gay. and i said mathias just because you like a show that seems more for girls doesnt mean youre going to be gay and plus youre 8 dont think about that and he said what am i then if he finds out and i said theres a lot of guys who like my little pony and theyre called bronies.

 do you know how happy he was to know there are other guys who like that show? THAT SHOULDNT BE A RELIEF FOR A FUCKING 8 YEAR OLD. HE SHOULDNT BE TOLD THAT ITS NORMAL TO LIKE A KIDS SHOW. BUT you know what its not his fault, or the bullies he may encounter, its noT EVEN the sCHOOLS FAULT. its the FUCKING PARENTS.

teach youre fucking kid to stop judging before they do something that may cause something as serious as attempt fucking suicide. remember it wont be their fault, it’ll be fucking yours for not teaching them to be open-FUCKING-minded. 

Im a 14year old boy and I still love my little pony

Alleged Sexual Abuse in the YouTube Community and How We React

thetomska:

Wow. So a lot of things are happening all at once and I honestly don’t have much to contribute but I’m so rattled up I just have to type something.

There are multiple allegations circulating right now regarding a handful of male British YouTubers and their potentially unacceptable behaviour with young female fans. I’m not going to name names simply because I don’t have any evidence to support either side. As an ignorant bystander it’s not my place to condemn anyone. I’ll leave the judging to the… well… to the judges.

I’ll admit that I’m morbidly fascinated by the development of these situations but in no way thrilled. I’d much prefer my colleagues to have not abused people; not because it’d be more convenient but so thatno one had been subjected to abuse at all. It’s fucking awful and all I can hope is that justice is done and future generations learn from our mistakes.

Hell, I’m determined that people learn from my mistakes; I’ve been a shitty and ignorant person in my life. When I was teenager I thought it was totally okay and not creepy/illegal to solicit dirty photographs from anyone and everyone. I was a dumb horny kid and I hope like hell I can prevent a few of you from being as stupid and destructive as I was.

What these recent events have shown is that, at least in a small way, victims are becoming more comfortable with speaking up and people are listening. That is awesome. No one should be ashamed or afraid of bringing their abusers to justice. However, it could also be argued that people’s eagerness to believe every single claim (including ones made by anonymous users presenting zero evidence) is a little bit worrying.

Our legal systems are largely based on the notion of “innocent until proven guilty” and that’s a good thing. It’s not perfect but it certainly cuts down on pitchfork-wielding mobs and witch hunts. That said, every allegation of a crime should be taken seriously. Primarily so that justice can be done in the event of wrongdoings but also so that folk know there are consequences to making false claims.

I guess all I’m saying is this: if any of these folk were sexually abusing others then I hope they get locked up real quick. However, is it our place as largely uninformed bystanders to take on the roles of judge, jury and executioner? Does that help the situation or does it demote a serious criminal offence into “drama?” Should we not take a step back, allow what should be a criminal investigation to take place and then base our reactions on those results?

I’m open to being wrong on this matter. I’d love to hear your opinions.

- Tom

To anybody that feels like they have been abused - you don’t have to suffer in silence. The NSPCC is there 24 hours a day to listen to you, offer advice and support - and you can speak to them anonymously without fear of people reacting on Tumblr. Their number is 0808 800 5000 and it won’t show up on your phone bill. You can also call ChildLine on 0800 1111, even if you’re over 16.

Poster: The Ocean N The Trash Can


There was this river near where we live in Bintaro and the sad thing about it is people keep throwing their trash in it, so eventhough the good samaritans clean the lakes everyday, piles of garbage will show up the next day and that sucks for them. Sometimes I wish Jakarta has trash bins and recycle bins installed on public roads.

Maybe that inspired the random thought that became this poster. I drew ocean waves cuz... i dont know why I didn't draw a river in the first place. And I feel as if I should change the tagline if I was being serious, but I'm just gonna leave it like that for comedic purposes.
