I’m Queen Valerie.

Can I just say how much that amused me? Their efforts on scaring me was kinda useless… So useless, that it was actually funny. I mean, there were time when a little jumpscare would pop up, but that was because I wasn’t warned. But other than that, the game…not really my type of scary. Sorry, video game creators, but you need to step up your game.

You and Cry must have nerves of steel then.Or I’m more of a pansy than I thought, because this game scared the crap out of me!In my defense… I’m an 80’s kid still traumatized by the twitchy, glitchy animatronics of “Billy Bob” from Showbiz Pizza!

DID NOT SEE THAT COMING.

Wow

Geez

Well that veered off into a completely different direction.

(via borderlineotaku)

I'm finally gonna ask it. Why did everyone flip over that blurred lines song where a guy was like 'o wow i don't even wanna hang out w/ chicks i just wanna bang em' but everyone was so excited for that get lucky song by daft punk where they were like 'o wow i don't even wanna hang out w/ chicks i just wanna bang em' ?

Because people are hypocrites. :\

Because every line of Blurred Lunes is something a rapist has said to their victims.

Because Robin Thicke claims that CONSENT is a blurry line WHEN IT’S NOT.

Because Thicke DELIBERATELY dehumanizes and degrades women in both the song and video.

Because Thicke has outright SAID he did it on purpose, and has said “What a joy it is to degrade women.”

Daft Punk’s song is about staying out all night to have (presumably consensual) sex.

Blurred Lines is about rape.

THAT’S why.

First of all, I am a rape victim. Hi. My rapist told me, “I love you.” He said a lot of things to me, but those things probably aren’t good enough to warrant censoring; not to you or others like you. You wouldn’t shout, “‘I LOVE YOU’ COULD TRIGGER RAPE VICTIMS!!!” from the rooftops, would you? Of course you wouldn’t, even though that’s what he told me every time he raped me, for almost a year, over and fucking over again. That’s what a lot of rapists tell their victims. They tell us that they love us, and we have to deal with the aftermath.

You also won’t acknowledge that the video was directed by a woman, and that the naked video was her suggestion. You probably also won’t acknowledge Pharrell’s part in the whole thing, because, no, it’s only Robin Thicke. He did everything. He’s responsible for everything. No one helped him with that song or music video, and there are no other suggestive songs out there, about black women needing to hush and not say a word, or about ladies needing to shake their asses for men’s pleasure, or, y’know, just shit that’s all around far more dehumanizing than Blurred fucking Lines. You won’t address the misogyny in the rap genre, no, no. It’s all Robin Thicke.

For some unfathomable reason, this is the song. This is the song that gets your panties in a knot. This one. This fucking song, out of all fucking songs.

This song that is about THE BLURRED LINES INVOLVED IN AN AFFAIR.

THE SONG IS ABOUT CHEATING.

The woman in the song puts her hands on the man singingShe grabs all over him, shows obvious and enthusiastic consent, even initiates sexual contact, and he reciprocates, but she’s in a relationship with a guy who doesn’t fulfill her needs, because she’s kinky as fuck and he’s like, “Nah, vanilla sex is the way to go, bitch.” Like, shit, I’d dump his ass, but, ey, she wants to just cheat on him or some shit, whatever.

The blurred lines aren’t about consent in the song, and you’d know this if you’d given the lyrics even a cursory fucking glance. The woman is going to cheat on her significant other; that’s where the blurred lines come into play. She gonna do it? She not? She gonna fuck both of ‘em? Who the fuck knows?

Neither song is about rape. They’re both just sexual songs with sexual connotations, but one gets a ton of shit, because people didn’t like the video and completely misinterpreted the lyrics, and I, a rape victim, stopped being able to listen to that song on the radio, because fucking assholes like you insisting it’s about rape fucked me over big time.

Not denying that Robin Thicke’s an asshole, but the song’s not about rape. Blurred Lines is about goddamn, motherfucking cheating. You want a song about rape to rail against? How about Brown Sugar? Father Figure? Date Rape? Secretary Hump? The Childcatcher? These are all songs that are actually about rape, and that could actually be potentially triggering to rape victims.

You know what else triggered me for a while?

The smell of pine needles, because that’s what he always smelled like. Fucking pine needles. But I can’t ban pine needles. I can’t censor pine needles. Many of the things I and other rape victims are triggered by can’t be censored, and we’re not going to recover if we ignore our triggers. If we never try to overcome them, we’re going to live in fear for the rest of our fucking lives, and I’m not going to let you and other people tell me that that’s the way to live, that I should just censor everything that upsets me or makes me uncomfortable rather than face it and overcome it.

The world is full of scary fucking bullshit. Fireworks aren’t censored for war veterans, but you want people to censor a fucking song? Really? Do you think we’ll just be able to go through our lives never being triggered if we censor one fucking song? You’re outta your goddamn mind if you think railing against a song about cheating that uses language that could potentially be triggering is gonna solve any fucking problems.

I had never seen it like this, but still never really understand just how much people flipped out. this is incredibly insightful

Behold: the masterpost of debunking that bullshit.

Now can we PLEASE stop talking about that fucking song?

I remember listening to that song five times in a row trying to pull the alleged “Rape message” out of it and couldn’t do it.

It’s nice to see people using some common sense!

my mom just basically told me i’ll only be happy and ‘live my life’ when i stop living in fantasy world like????? excuse me this is what makes me happy????

I was just going to make a short comment on this, but I realized I had too much to say!

She just must not see that you’ve actually lived more of your life through “fantasy worlds”. All she sees is is you living in a fantasy land while the real world is passing you by.

Try not to get too upset about it. As her mother it’s her job to be concerned and make a comment on it. But yes…explain to her that she’s wrong and why.

The same thing happened to me years ago. My mother made a “passing” comment about how I would have an easier time in my quest to advance myself if I stopped reading all those ghost books (I was really into ghost stories back then). This didn’t hurt my feelings, it PISSED me off. This is because in my head, I was busting my ass at work, busting my ass with my classes, getting assignments done, helping her out with stuff, etc. My ghost books were for me and a way for me to unwind and decompress. Who the hell can do “real world” stuff all day and all night?

I cooled down and I spoke to her about it. She never brought it up again.

Sometimes all you need is to put things in a little perspective. :)

As a European living a year in the states. I can totally agree with him!! Can’t be the only one, right ?

But then what would we silly American’s call Football?
Tackleball, maybe?
Hey, if Martin (and the rest of the fucking world) calls soccer “Football”, then I’ll call it football.
Then again, if Martin started calling it “Freckleball”, I’d probably start calling it that too.
