so I’ve just had the plot of the Divergent series explained to me and WOW… I had never met that many young, smart kids that had convinced me that the youth of today was a raging gaggle of scientists, but I can now say with certainty that we’re all fucking doomed. Here was me thinking that Twilight The Hunger Games was a one-off in grade-A dumb…
I just pop in and out of tumblr these days and social justice crazies send me over the edge. Of course, owning a penis, I am not entitled to voice logical retorts to many of the poorly formed but well intentioned things I read, so I am vague-angry at the generic establishment of dumb.
Apparently that type of paragraph structure is all it takes to convince people on the Internet who were already predetermined to lap up your “argument” as infallible truth. Yes, we get it: you’re really hurt, the world is against you and everyone needs to do exactly what you do exactly how you do it or they’re “the problem.”
Hollywood needs to do exactly what you want it to and must use every inch of its soapbox to layer a riddle inside of an enigma inside of the Ark of the Covenant of all social justice messages. We get it. We’re sorry that we’re not you. We’re sorry that we’ve let you down. Politicians are sorry too.
If you could however - just for us - make an argument that actually holds up to scrutiny, that would be swell. Layer in all the facts, figures and statistics that you like, but make them relevant to what you’re saying instead of writing like you’ve made sense when you haven’t. Understand that just because you think something makes something so, that doesn’t mean that it is. Have your overbearing opinions about how people should comport themselves, make society better, but do it right. Until you can do that… stop. Please. WORDS!
(I understand the desire to make yourself feel better by subscribing to an idea that you think is cool, but please take a second to analyse what someone is saying and make an informed decision about reality. There is no way that many people out there are that dumb. You’re smart enough to know that something is utter nonsense, you’re just being tricked because you forgot the words earlier in the sentence and it all seems legit.)
I have been so incredibly not here for a good while that I’ve lost over 1,000 followers and there’s every chance that immediately after completing this thought I will return to job, life and video games, but, in this moment… I am back. Kind of. Briefly. Almost. Nearly.
