NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED.
WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED
Turrets: Voice-aided, bruise-dealing Gumball machines.
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.
If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”
On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.
The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.
There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?
Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.
This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.
So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.
For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.
an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls)
HOLY FUCK THE TRUTH.
Can every one of my male followers read this? And please, before you get defensive (“I would never rape anyone!”) keep in mind, women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.
Anyone who hasn’t heard this needs to.
OKAY SO I AM ACTUALLY FUCKING C RYTING NOIW AND GHFASDHJsj’fy;k lhkjfdruytiuyo
I’m pretty sure this is the song they play when you arrive at heaven
RIP WINDOWS XP 2001 - 2014
that was the biggest fucking overreaction im laughing so hard
The guy in the boots is the person this raccoon killed 10 years ago and now he pops up, totally alive and seeking revenge. Don’t judge a person to be overreacting until you know the whole story.
But they’re red pandas!
I miss her. It’s the hardest part about being away for so long.
FROM ME TO YOU:
Please stop all this hate.
We aren’t like your oppressors.
We want to help.
Don’t push us away.
There are so many more friendships to be made.
"we aren’t like the bad guys" "let us" "don’t push us away"
this sounds threatening and shitty and this whole post is shit and you are shit and there is shit everywhere
What the fuck is this bullshit.
"Tumblr made me pretend I was gender fluid to fit in" like what the fuck kind of asshat shit message is that.
OP can GDIAF.
in case anyone at all is wondering why we are always so pissed about “allies”
she doesn’t even address why she shouldn’t be grouped with our oppressors? and like she doesn’t address any of her main points, just says some shit defending herself, and then says ‘we love you all / please don’t hate us’ yeah right man now we’re totally in love with someone who previously fetishised and tried to label herself as genderfluid to “fit in.”
so instead of researching on how to not be an awful ally, or why people ‘group the oppressors” OR even why fetishising and pretending to be genderfluid is horrifically destructive, OP decided to waste their time on this dumbass comic. I literally hate you
bolded the last part cause op you fucked up
Bolded everything because YOU guys fucked up.
"weh cis white straight people can’t understand us" "lol you labeled yourself as genderfluid to fit in ur such trash"
did you ever stop and think that, MAYBE the ones that are trash are you people, who act nice and supportive but then do shit like this? I don’t even care if i lose followers over this, but all of the bolded stuff is BS and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
you people, some of you anyway, are idiots. instead of maybe being happy that someone is trying, you’re sitting here being morons and assholes to someone that had good intentions. was it right of OP to pretend to be genderfluid to fit in? not really, but you know what? considering how 99.9% of tumblr is, I can totally understand it.
a lot of you people pretend to be all “omg we’re totally for everyone” and “we’re all such good people” but despite that, a lot of you are hypocrites.
you claim to be nice and supportive of everyone, but the truth of the matter is, you’re NOT.
unless someone is gay, bi, trans, genderfluid, or anything that is not straight/cis/white, most of tumblr doesn’t give a shit and thinks the person is stupid and uninformed and you know what? they are uninformed because the only information they get is delivered to them in this way and they’re constantly told that, no matter what, they’re the bad guy just because of how they are.
ever stop and think that this is exactly how the right-wingers view US? we are demonized by rightwingers because they don’t like our way of life, and they are constantly saying we’re the bad guys. let in soak in that all of you are no different than the people that try and oppress us.
I hope that makes you all feel real good about yourselves.
Bashing someone for their views and hopes regarding the hate on tumblr is moronic, and all of you should be trying to be helpful towards people that don’t fully understand the things they’re talking about.
And if the tumblr mentality wasn’t so strong with the rebloggers of this post, maybe OP wouldn’t have felt like they needed to pretend to be something they aren’t just so they could have friends on tumblr.
i was so distressed and upset at all the commentary until i got to the last comment thank you friend we need more ppl like you in the world
thank you oh my god.
hardboiledsloth is my hero
I recall my sister mentioning this game was a bit choppy, but some how it made the cut.
how dare you
I sincerely hope I haven’t offended you, invader-washy, as game-bashing was certainly not my intention. I should be aware that making puns (or even jokes for that matter) for the sake of adding some comedic relief to my day can bear heavier weight if I am careless.
