"There are so many people replying to this saying how this girl is "asking for it" because of her top. You've just proved her point! You are taught by society to believe that a woman must dress a certain way to avoid being raped, instead of a man being taught that it is always wrong to rape. You are conditioned to think that way and it is pathetic and immoral and so so so WRONG. I'm so infuriated by looking at the notes on this. If you think even a little bit, that this woman- or any woman- is ASKING to get raped, unfollow me now because I do not want to be associated with you in any way, shape, or form."
My two cents:
(psst please don't forget that men can be raped too, and that women can rape others)
I wish the people who blame the victim would realize their enabling attitudes, and that rape is going to happen. Rape will always happen. Regardless of someone's gender, his/her behaviour, his/
700I read a story once about a man who had six PhD's in six different fields. I don't remember what fields they were, but I was impressed - that much I remember. As I read on, it became clear that the reason he found so much success was his severe OCD. He was so consumed by the disorder that he read each page of each textbook hundreds of times. And I remember thinking it was crazy, insane, psychotic. But I guess it worked for him. So I forgot about the man with the six PhD's and the torturous perfectionism that some call "disorder."7003 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Until I Met Candyce Karolyn Ethanson.
It was fourth grade and I called her names behind her back because she had to get on the swings so many times in a row that she never even swung. Before she could get on the swing well enough, recess was over. She cried when our teacher pried her from the swing-set, not allowing the repetition to continue. Then we went back inside for class and I remember seeing blood on her fingernails from where they were buried in her l

Youve committed no crimes
And youve saved no lives
You didnt pull the trigger
But you didnt take the bullet either
And you didnt push her into the water
But you didnt dive in to save her
Youve done nothing villainous
Youve done nothing heroic
When it comes to emotion
Youve stayed at a distance
And your attitude,
Its always indifference
When there is need for urgency
All you give out is apathy
So now you can never say youve killed a man
So now you can never say youve saved a man
You can never speak of your sins
You can never speak of your virtues
You are simply there
Idly observing the world pass by
Lack of opinion, lack of reaction
Lack of reaction, lack of any action
I wonder if you feel left behind.
Youve never felt pain
Youve never felt pleasure
Youve only felt the glass of the window
Pressed against your nose
As you watch the world

The Order of Sublime SimulacraKamon woke to the sound of bells and saws. The ceremony must have started hours ago; there was invigorating yellow sunlight outside the gauzy curtains. Kamon's Self was intoning eight o'clock, eight o'clock with all the insistence of a song looping in his head.The Order of Sublime Simulacra4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Flesh brain, he thought, you should have caught that alarm. Sometimes the flesh was louder than the devices supposed to make it properly quiet. The flesh insisted on the persistence of the Real. This was exactly the type of lesson that the brothers were supposed to learn, and Kamon hoped that relaying to the abbot how thoroughly he had learned it might lighten the inevitable punishment that came from reminding himself of himself. (Of course, that punishment would still be severe. He was going to arrive at the ceremony so late--)
On the orders of his Self, Kamon moved blearily out of bed and into the shower. (Rules For The Sanctum Three and Four, said his Self. Wear a clean robe. Wear a clean body.) Li
Logical Fallacies And You. A Resource PT. 2My original post was mostly well received, which is nice. In part two, we go into the world of informal logical fallacies. Informal fallacies are arguments that are fallacious for reasons not pertaining to the basic structure of the argument, but rather the content of said argument. This is where things get complicated and also really interesting.Logical Fallacies And You. A Resource PT. 21 year ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Let's dive in.
1. Ad Hoc
" No more excuses." ~ Tony Evans
Ad Hoc is latin for 'thrown together' or 'to this' depending on who you ask. An Ad Hoc argument is one that is hastily put together to support or explain a claim without any real substance or logical framework. Because of its rush-job nature and lack of a good logical frame-work, the Ad Hoc is likely to contradict existing knowledge. Usually, an Ad Hoc is born when someone is put on the spot to explain something. They can either deal with it in a consistent manner (meaning that their arguments are consistent for all eventualities so far), change their consistent beliefs

“Bout time.” Dani said as Myls’Stanis walked into the cargo bay. She was busy configuring something on the display on the forward bulkhead of the compartment. Uli'Narah sat on a crate leaning against the rear bulkhead while Zen was against the far side of the cabin tinkering with his drone that was hovering next him. Myls set down next to Uli.
“Okay,” the squad leader started “We all know this was as last second as missions get, but by now we are a used to that. But the reason that we got sent out here in a human freighter will be obvious in a moment.

It was barely in range of other optical sensors but we were able to get this.”

"There's a kind of notion that everyone's opinion is equally valid. My arse! A bloke who's been a professor of dentistry for 40 years doesn't have a debate with some eejit who removes his teeth with string and a door!" ~Dara Ó Briain
The balance fallacy happens when two sides of an argument are assumed to have equal value regardless of their respective merits.
It's pretty much the Yin to bias's Yang. whereas bias lends too much support to one view at the detriment of another legitimate, well-supported view to give the impression of one being the only right choice, false balance gives too much leeway to a minority or unsupported view to the detriment of a well-supported view to give the impression than neither is favored.
For example: A balance fallacy is when the opinion of a man who thinks autism is caused by demons is treated with the same respect as that of an actual doctor.

Praddling Tides Of JudgmentalismHow is it you feel justified to judge mePraddling Tides Of Judgmentalism2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or to condemn the way I embrace my affection
Do you think you are somehow better
While you call my morality into question
Are you such a ridiculous drama queen
That you think that you're perfect and blameless
For there is none on earth that is pure
None that remains white as snow it's your faithlessness
That brings to question who we are really meant to be
Yet you praddle on and on
With eyes that never learn a thing
Because you are set in yourself
And see none other in their suffering
Arrogance so blind it can strangle the life
Out of the spirit of nobility
Sickening greed so powerful
That no more is there peace or eternity
Bear not the waning busted mind of innocence
That now is clouded full of sin and hate
But instead stand alone in the darkness
To listen to the winds and the tide of fate
It's not too late to save your life
Or more importantly your soul
But only you can change your heart
And by letting in salvation
Wash away the tarnish of you

As far as angels know
The mark of shadows never more to show
As far as angels know
I'm something of a weapon now
And something of a shattered dream
I'm something of a tragic end
And something of a silent scream
I'm lost in desperation
As far as angels care to know
And caught in cross-damnation
The angel's knowledge clearly shows
But two blue eyes stared into mine
Reminding me what I could find
Within the light within a mind
A feeling deep inside.
I'm something of a person
As far as you have shown to know
So take my hand
I'll need another guide
To keep our world alive.
I think your wings are better
Than other angels care to know.
I think you're something special
As far as angels go.
Day OneMatthias took a deep breath, inhaling the crisp air of a spring dawn, and smiled.Day One6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
From the hillside on which he sat, he could see the land sprawling out before him, rippling slightly under cold morning gusts. Plains stretched out in all directions, meeting thick forests to his left, over which the sun had just begun to show itself. To his right, the hills faded into the gray horizon, where eventually the land would end, swallowed by the sea. And in the distance before him, he could see the city of Starlight, a sprawling collection of intricate stone and wood structures. The city awaited dawn in regal silence, as it had for the last five centuries.
But Matthias' gaze was focused closer, to the encampment of nearly half a thousand people which was just beginning to stir in the plains at the bottom of the hill. As the pale gold light of dawn strengthened, the melodic sound horns echoed from below, signaling the day's beginning. He could see many who had been awake before the morning call,
The Other SideAcross the river, things were quiet. Always. The diverse crowds on Temery's Southside was not present on the northern edge of the flowing water. Neither were the lights, the noise of running cars or the shimmering splendor of the skyscrapers. No, the structures in Northside were old, decrepit and decaying, no one having tended to their welfare in many years.The Other Side4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It seemed simply... empty. Forgotten. A rotten periphery which its inhabitants had shrugged off long ago, the horror and pain of its amputation having faded over time.
Night fell slowly. The sun, weary from a day of piercing Temery's smog, sank slowly behind the horizon to cast the sky in gold before leaving it in starless shadow.
Northside, a skeleton of a city, the remains of what once had been as glorious, if not more so than what was still called home by its people, donned its midnight garb. White, billowing fog rolled between its structures, enveloping the steel and wood and stone. Unnoticed by most of Southside's citizens, ev

The Lucario paused, turning to look out over the vista provided by his new dwelling. Trees stretched out from the base of the mountain, eventually fading into plains which, he knew, would lead to the sands of a beach. After that he wasn't sure. Ponderously, he ate a berry from the cluster he clutched in his hand before turning back, leisurely running up the mountainside.
The first few times Acerora had gone out to forage, he had to leave trails, markers behind to guide him back to his home until he had become familiar with the terrain. Then, carefully, he had erased them one by one, leaving himself less and less

1. No Adult Main Characters The key to a successful series is to never have the main character be a day over 17 years of age. It makes it more accessible to a more general audience and thus gives it more popularity through a wider fan base. Only young people in the prime of life can go on and join the military action-packed adventures of a lifetime and have the imagination capacity to sit through hours and hours of colorful drug-inspired bullshit that anyone over 30 would most likely scoff at. Also, adults are colorless and have no souls, thus why they can't ride unicorns or wield keyblades.
