Hi Sam!

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in…

There are a lot of blurry lines in the world, but this isn’t one of them. I’m very pleased the our community has come together to discuss this openly and rationally. Five stars to Laci for binding people together in that, with an open and clear message.

I hope (expect even) that Sam will be taking the video down soon, because every moment it’s up is another moment where he’s normalizing assault and societal dominance of women.

Run To Your Grave - The Mae Shi from HLLLYH

And emotion is a simple test to the synapse
Don’t let it fool you into thinking that you’ve got brains
And the more you feel, the more you will take with you
So cut the flesh and let your blood flow to the drain

On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz

To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:

Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never

In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching Remedial English in college.

Joseph Sobran (1946-2010) American Journalist  (via philosophicalconservatism)

This makes it sound like English is dying out because it was replaced by Latin and Greek.

In all seriousness though, how many schools taught classical languages 100 years ago? Definitely not the one room schoolhouses my grandparents and great-grandparents attended out here. My grandmother didn’t even wear shoes to school. That was the American West in 1914. They weren’t learning Latin, and most of the boys were leaving school semi-literate when they were brawny enough to work the fields.

(via chrysostmom)

tru and also this kind of academic snobbery is why it’s almost impossible for anyone who didn’t attend a fancy schmancy private or public school where Latin and Greek were taught to succeed as an undergraduate or higher in classics or a related field. unfair and gross that these kind of gateways are set up so early in student’s lives

If someone says “I love u” and you say “I love u 2” back, make sure you add “no Bono” so they know you mean that you love them too, not just the legendary Irish rock band U2

I just watched the scrubs episode about this.
