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

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.

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.
