I can’t imagine something as useless as lamenting that today’s thirteen year-olds may not be aware of obsolete technology

"they won’t know about VCRs or floppy disks"

here’s a thought: those things were annoying as hell and we’ve replaced them with things that are much, much better. They will still know about the stuff that made big technological breakthroughs

today’s cotton gins are much faster than the ones Eli Whitney made folks— times, they are a-changin’

Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)
Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

He’d rock the fuck out of memes. Don’t deny it.

Exit, pursued by a doge. much run wow

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.

As reported by Al Jazeera America, colleges across the country are replacing the word “rape” in their sexual assault policies with “non-consensual sex” because schools don’t want label students “rapists”.

This whole article is worth reading.

When you call a rape anything but rape, you are just making excuses for rapists | Jessica Valenti | Comment is free | theguardian.com

You’re my favorite artist

At this point, I’m shocked when I’m seeing these things before they are reblogged by actual Mark Ruffalo.
