If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.

For real though, like think about it. If someone is religious, there’s really no kinder sentiment they can express than appealing to the highest power they know for your recovery. Whether or not you think it “works” is irrelevant— the kindness is absolutely real.

If your response to someone telling you what their religion is, is to call them an emotionally inept moron, you’re probably not as kind as you think you are.

5 Things Every Girl Should Know About What Guys Think About Them

violenceandscience:

coketalk:

mikaschiller:

1)    Watch your weight and appearance very carefully because we have a very simple and uncontrollably powerful algorithm in our brains that renders us less likely to commit to you with each additional pound of weight you gain. Once you’re over a BMI of about 22, the vast majority of guys who act interested just want to sleep with you and leave. Beyond about 24, most of them want nothing to do with you. It isn’t fair, but knowing this could save you a ton of heartache.

 2)      Yes, we secretly think we’re better, smarter, more creative, and more noble-minded than you, regardless of what TV, movies and magazines portray these days. It’s this inborn egotism that’s compelled us to build cities, invent electricity and send satellites to the edges of the solar system. We just never talk about it because we need you and don’t want to piss you off.

 3)      The number of men you’ve slept with tremendously influences our perception of your quality and potential as a long term partner. Be aware that the average guy will use this fact as a barometer for whether you are commitment material or short-term material. An ugly truth it is, but a double standard it’s not for the simple fact that it takes skill for us to get you, but not the other way around. Therefore it comes off as gluttonous behavior in a girl and furthermore, puts us in danger of raising kids that aren’t our own.

 4)      We don’t really care about your degrees or career ambitions, so save your breath. We’ll only acknowledge those things if we like the way you look, and even then, the most attention our brains will devote to them is an “Oh, you went to Yale? That’s nice.” We just care that you have a baseline level of common sense so that you don’t make our lives miserable and our kids dumb.

 5)      For the most part, we find you boring. You’ll never be able to discuss sports, politics, science, technology, or current affairs the way our male friends do and you’ll never be as funny as them. The only reason we talk to you is because we like the way you look and we can’t live without you.

Dear Mika,

It seems as though you’ve wandered into our little community and left us all a big steaming pile of misogynistic bullshit. Not cool, dude.

Speaking on behalf of tumblr, let me just say that we see right through you. We know your type. We recognize you for what you really are, and we are thoroughly unimpressed. You’re not a “tech entrepreneur.” You’re just another asshole with a few rudimentary computer programming skills filled with narcissistic rage at what will inevitably be a life of quiet desperation.

You’re terrified of your own pathetic mediocrity, and it comes seething out of you in the form of misdirected anger towards women. You are a ridiculous preening boy confused by a false notion of manhood and a poisonous opinion of womanhood. Your world view is dangerous. Not only will it hurt you, but it will hurt the people who can tolerate being close to you.

I can tell that you aren’t ready for the avalanche of notes you’re about to receive, and I even hesitate to write you for fear that you will somehow mistake this attention for positive reinforcement. Please understand, this ain’t gonna go well for you. You done fucked up, son.

For now, you’re just the douchebag-du-jour, but if you don’t get the fuck gone or change your tune, you run the risk of doing serious damage to your career and your future relationships. Yep. It’s that serious.

You see, I checked your profiles on Facebook and LinkedIn just to make sure this shit wasn’t satire. Interestingly, you’re not the kind of guy who can afford any scrutiny, much less negative publicity, and I really don’t think you’re ready for the kind of shaming you’re about receive.

Of course, you’re free to write whatever you like here, but please know that the things you post are very public, and as you’ll soon find out, actions have consequences.

Remember, Mika. Reputation is everything.

Sincerely,

The Coquette

Very interesting that this fellow uses his real name on his blog. Also interesting that this fellow has worked for the government on multiple tech-related projects (you can find his LinkedIn for yourself). You’d think he would know better than to show his ass like this but, well, internet, you know what to do.

Dear Mika Schiller,

You don’t sound like much of a catch. Were you planning on ever dating again? You know most people google people that they’re thinking of hooking up with, right?

Wonderful as you may think you are, you’ve already proven that you clearly aren’t “smarter, more creative, and more noble-minded” than even the scum on the sole of my shoes, much less the average woman.

Hm.. Not sure how I feel about this. Seems a little problematic.

wtf this is weird as hell.

You can’t be serious? ^ it’s just trans people modeling.

I mean it is problematic because they are fetishing trans* people

Okay qualifier b4 I start…American Apparel fetishes ALL women. like the poses and ads are hella sketch. but i dont think its particularly fetishing transwomen to have a casting call for us. We wouldnt show up to things like that otherwise because we were assumed to be excluded. I think its good to give us this opportunity to represent a popular brand and be visible. Now if the campaign the models are used for has some fetishy, problematic message about trans women then thats a different story. I dont think this is recent, but I would go to one of these casting calls. With all that said, American Apparel has a long list of problematic shit to be accountable for, but this doesnt glaringly strike me as one of them.

I agree that this is very inclusive of them, but aa’s corrupt values make me a little suspicious. Like doesn’t it seem like they want to use trans* people for their own benefit somehow?

Of course they do. That’s what advertising is.

petitsirena:

ugh if yr #1 platform is environmentalism and not shit like poverty or the treatment of ppl who are trans* it’s likely you’re just hella privileged and only willing to be angry about shit where you can clearly define yourself or something non-human as the oppressed

it’s likely…

But environmentalism is a human rights issue.

Do you think water being so polluted it poisons people is not a human rights issue? Is not itself linked to poverty?

Do you think the death of forests that people have lived off of for years hasn’t contributed to poverty?

That the impacts of global warming will only affect the rich?

Drew a version of this a while ago for my psychology teacher to hang in his classroom. The way people so often misinterpret legitimate mental disorders is probably one of my biggest pet peeves.

Some of them are literally adjectives though.

Why don’t you adopt 10 straight out of foster care right now then? If you don’t believe there’s something as “too many children” YOU take care of them then.


Sweetheart, I’m already planning to adopt. But I’m only 15 years old right now. Nice of you to be so thoughtful though. :)


Ah, you’re 15 years old. 


Ah, yeah. You think I’m naive?


I think you’re 15. You’re a kid. That’s what I think. You’re going to be growing up a helluva lot over the coming years, and you’ll realize what I’m coming from now. You’re 15, and right now I think you’re a bit too young to be talking about adult stuff you have no idea about. 
Come back in a few years when you’re struggling to get a job that’ll cover the bills, loans, and rent while having a boyfriend that you love.
Come back then. Right now you’re 15, and you’re in no place to tell people not to have sex when they’re adults. You’re FIFTEEN. I’m sick of 15 year olds trying to tell adults what to do as if they have a better clue of adulthood. 


It’s pretty sad that a FIFTEEN year old is reminding adults that abortion is murder. It’s pretty sad. I LOVE kids. (Also, I’m a teenager) I’m not a rebellious and I don’t try to be. On the internet I can’t tell who’s a teenager and who’s an adult. And you’re right. I’m still learning. But you can never be too young to defend innocent life because people had sex without the intention of having a child and now they want to abort the child for something that wasn’t his/her fault. The point of this post is “there’s never too many children”. :)


Oh boy.
Yeah, you love kids. You love kids because they’re so cute, you love kids and their 500 questions, their poopy diapers, keeping you up all night, their sick days, when they cling on you after you haven’t slept all night. You love kids when they’re throwing tantrums while you’re trying to cook, when they’re screaming their heads off for 15 minutes because you didn’t let them play with a fucking hammer. 
You love kids and their innocence, their adorable laughter, their hugs, kisses and their throw up on your shirt. You love kids when you’ve got 20$ left in your account, and 5 days until the next pay check, and you have to buy formula and diapers. You love kids.
You love kids… 
A 15 year old tells me that she LOVES kids, but probably hasn’t spent more than a couple of hours baby-sitting, and most of their knowledge on kids is watching their moms do it. Dude, no. I don’t believe any 15 year old, who isn’t a mother, who says “I love kids”.
Regardless of who’s a teenager or who’s not a teenager, you’re speaking in general terms. You put up a post on a tag on  tumblr and you’re talking to EVERYONE, from the 12 year olds who probably shouldn’t be on here to the 70 year olds. EVERYONE. 
You don’t even understand parenting, don’t even understand what it’s like  to have bills or ACTUAL responsibility, so please please please for the sake of all that’s good, just understand that this is a topic that you don’t know enough about to speak up about. You’re a kid. And you’re acting like one. 
The point is that there ARE too many kids. Children in Guatemala are being thrown into rivers because there are too many kids. There are so many children in foster care because there are too many kids. There are children starving, there are children being murdered, there are children out there that are neglected, abused… The point is that there are so many children right now who do not have the basic care they need, and adding to that? That’s not a good idea? Denying it? You’re just fooling yourself.


If I may add my two cents worth -
Not everyone likes kids. Not everyone who likes kids, wants them. (i.e. Me).
You can have your opinion, OP, because as teenagers, we are encouraged to think for ourselves. You have to think for yourself in order to grow as a person. That’s how I became pro-choice when I was seventeen.
It’s a big, diverse world out there, dear. I hope you’ll one day see that there are many, many differences in people and their opinions. It’s not all black and white.


OP: I have about 50 houseplants (“flowers”). Altogether, they take about 15 minutes a day to take care of (water, transplant, etc). Do you think 50 children and 15 minutes of care a day would be a good choice for me?
