they didnt have to spend the whole episode explaining it.
I know, and I really didn’t care about tragic!medic Reese or how he was kind of less of a douche than those other douches… I mean I guess it was necessary to explain why Toshiko liked him, but her pain could have manifested as the nogitsune in a friend or anyone else really. And I don’t get why Toshiko hates werewolves if the one helped her exorcise the nogitsune, but maybe because of the lost control and riot? Anyway, I was all excited for Scira scenes and maybe a kiss and no just a whole backstory ep that was a little less annoying than Gerard Argent’s story time.
there is no “tumblr hivemind” tumblr does not “contradict itself” nor is tumblr “welcoming and accepting” tumblr is not a single person it’s a fuckton of people with different opinions. those two contradictory text posts by sj bloggers you saw today were made by *gasp* different people! it’s revolutionary, ain’t it?
I had a patient in the clinic who really did not want an abortion but who had no resources to cover the costs of prenatal care or childbirth. She was single and without insurance coverage but made just enough money to be ineligible for state assistance. She already had outstanding bills at the hospital and with the local ob-gyn practice. No doctor would see her without payment up front.
We were willing to do the abortion for a reduced rate or for free if necessary. But she really didn’t want an abortion. Once I understood her situation, I went to the phone and called the local ‘crisis pregnancy center.’
"Hello, this is Dr. Wicklund."
Dead silence. I might as well have said I was Satan.
"Hello?" I said again. "This is Dr. Wicklund."
"Hello," very tentatively, followed by another long silence.
"I need help with a patient," I said. She came to me for an abortion, but really doesn’t want one. What she really needs is someone to do her prenatal care and birth for free."
"What do you expect us to do?"
I let that hang for a minute.
This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund
Crisis Pregnancy Centers often disguise themselves as medical facilities, with advertisements offering “help” with an unplanned pregnancy. Their main goal is to keep the pregnant person from having an abortion at all costs. Usually, all they’ll give you is a free pregnancy test, some baby clothes, and maybe a box of diapers.
The patient referred to in the quote was given free prenatal care and did not have to pay the financial cost of childbirth by a local anti-choice doctor. She would often stop by Dr. Wicklund’s office to let her know how she was doing:
"He (the doctor) always moans and groans about being tricked into [doing this]," she says. "Then he goes off on these tirades against abortion."
"Don’t worry, FDIC insurance has you covered. Oh wait. Shit. Fuck. Shit. I’m gonna get fucking murdered in my sleep fuck shit jesus’s asshole I am so fucking fucked"
The “Bitcoin Kingpin” looks exactly how I would imagine a kingpin of imaginary nerd money would look
I didn’t know it was possible to combine “slimy banker,” “huge fucking nerd,” and “complete lack of foresight” into a cohesive look and style, but this guy has really broken some aesthetic ground here
HAHAHHHAHAHAHA HOLYS HIT
"Japan-based Mt.Gox CEO Mike Karpele—who may or may not be Chris Farley reanimated with the soul of Reddit"
Mt.Gox is doing more than just bowing with shame: the virtual currency exchange is bankrupt, and is seeking court protection accordingly. Funny, how these people only want anything to do with the government after they’ve fucked themselves over into another dimension. That dimension is filled with dreams of Kickstarter projects backed with internet money, Dorito-crusted sushi, Doge posters, and now lots of shame and backtracking.
the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
the fact that over 300,000 other people know exactly what this feels like too is a source of great comfort
the block/ignore function on here is way too weak like i need an option where the person i block can’t see any of my posts and can’t reblog any of my posts and when they attempt to reblog my shit a message pops up that says to go fuck themselves
“Dude, you’re so edgy and politically incorrect. it’s totally ironic and satirical how you regurgitated those ancient and threadbare stereotypes. It reminds me of my great great great great grandpa, Cracker von Patriarch, who also challenged the status quo by embracing it with loving tenderness.”—snobographer (via lavenderlabia)
I was going to drag more specifically fandom bullshit into this, but it’s not actually necessary to say what I want to say:
as a member of this fandom and someone who loves both the show and fandom enough to be writing about both in my Master’s thesis and in my hypothetical future PhD dissertation, I am beyond disgusted by the way that the official teenwolf tumblr is handling the situation that’s been dominating Teen Wolf fandom conversations since Tuesday.
Like, I’m sorry here. I get it, people running said tumblr. You have a job to do and you have to care about the financial side of things here because that’s what you get paid to do. That’s fair. I feel for you there. But you NEED to consider the human element here too.
Because when you choose sides in fandom wank like you’ve done by reblogging that Sterek post by tumblr user colethewolf like you did today
Whenever you take sides in fandom wank, you are condoning certain sets of behaviors. THESE ARE THE BEHAVIORS YOU ARE SIGNING OFF ON AND CONDONING BY TAKING THE SIDE OF THE STEREK FANDOM IN THIS PIECE OF WANK.
also, hey, nice job throwing Tyler Posey under the bus and making this fandom an even more toxic space for those of us whom the Sterek fandom has hurt before. A+ job there. Seriously, thanks for that. as someone who’s had her histories of abuse and suicide attempts as well as her identity as a disabled queer person trashed on by large portions of the Sterek fandom before, I super appreciate it. Stellar social media use, folks.
teen wolf social media couldn’t even foster a safe fandom environment
