THIS MADE ME START HYPERVENTILATING which is really ironic
that was fucking terrifying
your tension has been exterminated
“It seems almost inexplicable that a house with such bold forms and so dramatic cantilevers could remain even remotely anonymous, yet, as the shadows of leaves cast dappled light over the weathering copper, as the curving lines of the shingles begin to resemble the grains of sawn timber, and glass throws back images of the surrounding forest, it becomes completely obvious that this building is at peace with its environment.” Click through to read more!
He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
This just… hurts.
This reminds me of all the executives being hired to run YouTube networks who probably couldn’t name more than one YouTube channel.

I watched a lot of TV as a kid. As soon as I got home from…
GUYS I WAS AT THE LEAFS GAME WHEN THIS HAPPENED I WAS CRYING
Haruka & Michiru: A Lesson in Innuendos
Saturn and Neptune are my favorite scouts. As a kid, I related more to Saturn, but now I relate more to Neptune. I always loved how she was very ladylike but also naughty, and I understand her better now.
My favorite canon ship, also I love their interactions. The translation really dropped the ball trying to turn them into “cousins”… No way family members talk like that to each other, unless they’re Lannisters or something.
Uh, no. No they wouldn’t.
Ugh, it’s late and I’m tired and I’m going to have trouble articulating right now. But the thing is, first of all this is super victim-blaming. Oh, a dude was rude to you or catcalled you or sexually assaulted you? Must have been because you were a bitch, or dressed like a slut. If you were modest and quiet and polite, that wouldn’t happen.
False. Proven to be false. Incredibly insulting.
It’s also: super perpetuating of the madonna/whore stereotypes, as well as erasing of the fact that things like rape and domestic violence or even more minor infractions like infidelity most likely don’t happen more now than they did in eras where women were expected to be polite and accommodating, they’re simply reported more frequently. It’s not something you can’t talk about in polite society. If “ladies” = “gentlemen” then marital rape wouldn’t have been something that was only made illegal in the last 50 years — and was hotly contested because people didn’t think it was possible to force your wife to have sex.
I’ve BEEN the passive quiet person who’s nice to most people and doesn’t speak up when people are rude and you know what it got me? Taken advantage of. People in my face. People muttering that I’m a bitch because I’m NOT responding to them being vulgar about me. They may not be happy when I tell them to fuck off — but they usually do shut up or show me more respect.
Plus what the hell does it say about a man if he’s only nice to women who live up to just one of the many boxes women are expected to fit into? Fuck that ”sleep with bad girls, marry a good girl” shit. If you’re willing to treat someone crappily if they’re NOT a “lady” — guess what, you’re not a gentleman. You’re just a douchebag who puts on a charming front.
I don’t know, this basically makes me super frustrated and I also know you, so I know you know better. And I would hope you don’t force yourself into that role.
Everything my flawless wife just said. Men don’t treat women poorly because women aren’t ladies. Men treat women poorly because of a long standing systemic oppression that allows men to maintain power over women economically, physically, socially, and emotionally through abuse and manipulation. No. No. STFU, no.
Maybe if more women (and men, and people who don’t identify as either) would stop shaming women into passivity, more men would treat women with respect. It’s not about gentlemen, gentlemen, the ones we imagine, were often charming but not particularly kind to their girlfriends and wives behind closed doors. You can be dapper and polite but at the end of the day, what we need isn’t gentlemen, it’s self-aware, worldly men who respect other people’s choices and other people’s bodies.
are you fuckin shitting me his face looks like a sack of potatoes
If by “sack of potatoes” you mean “manifestation of beauty and sex and everything right in this world” then yes.
no i mean a sack of fuckin potatoes
If by “sack of potatoes” you mean “best face in the entire universe and all of mankind and everything else” then yes!
if by “best face in the entire universe and all of mankind and everything else” you mean “looks like a horse masquerading as a person” then yes
See here’s the thing, you can hate his personality, or his acting, or things he’s said, but saying shit about the way he looks? That just makes you a dick. Saying shit about the way anyone looks make you a dick.
Yeaaahh. Like, IDGAF what your opinion of any actor’s ability, personality, or physical appearance is. Two of those are things people have the right to critique. You have every right to say, “I don’t think he captures the character of Sherlock properly,” or, “he’s said some really classist shit and doesn’t really understand when people call him out on it.”Those are legitimate public complaints.
Insulting people for their physical appearance isn’t a legit complaint. It’s bullying and when you take away his fame you’re no different than any other jerk on the internet calling a 15 year old girl fat or telling a boy with glasses he’s a loser nerd. You’re a jerk. You’re not clever or interesting or special. You’re a bully and you’re pathetic.
Wanna call him out on something? Be my guest. I don’t think the man is flawless. But remember that if you don’t have something valuable to say about a real issue, you’d be better off keeping your mouth shut. There are enough assholes in the world making people feel insecure. Sit down.
Yes. All the time.
