…this was actually MY ‘bedroom’ on days where I’d sleep over at this shop. Oh my god. So many memories. The owners were such sweethearts!
I understand the hype surrounding the Hunger Games, but I’m finding it very difficult to jump on the bandwagon. It’s a strange position to be in, as I love the fantasy genre almost to a fault, and I’m always willing to try anything, but I just couldn’t get through the Hunger Games.
I couldn’t stand how Katniss was written. She’s perfect: she’s amazing at the bow and arrow, she’s strong, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, she’s modest, and she denies being awesome. I have never been able to stand Mary-Sue characters in novels, which is a pity, because I did grow to like Peeta and the rest. I did somehow manage to make it through Cassandra Clare’s series though, which was full of Mary-Sues and 2D characters.
The movie looks decent though. It might even be better than the book - the shocker.
Well. I’ve got my hands full with A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones and Avatar: The Legend of Korra anyway, so I’ve more than filled my fantasy quota (:
Sometimes, I don’t really understand the LGBTQ community. I also don’t understand people who purport ‘everyone must be a little gay’ and refuse to take ‘no, I’m definitely 100% straight’ for an answer. They too often take it as insult. It’s not an insult at all, it’s a statement of fact.
I proudly see myself as pan-sexual (although I often just say I’m bi, because it takes too long to explain what pan-sexuality is), but I see no point in the LGBTQ community apart from the fact that it can provide a good community of support for those who are struggling with being prejudiced. You don’t get equal rights and equal treatment by separating yourself. Why isn’t it the LGBTQS community?
I often read posts like “aren’t you glad you’re gay, because that lets you escape the hell-hole that if your family”, or other posts that are critical of people being straight. Acceptance should be the same across the entire spectrum.
I don’t understand people in the LGBTQ community who excessively hate on what they see as ‘typical’ ‘ignorant’ straight people, i.e. your resident, straight jock, with a cheerleader girlfriend. What’s wrong with them being straight, and a jock or a cheerleader? That’s who they are. If we want the rest of the world to respect us for who we are, because sexuality isn’t something you can chose - it’s something you’re born with, then we have to respect the rest of the world for who they are.
Gay people always complain of the prejudice they get, but often forget their own prejudices they hold when it comes to straight people.
I guess all I want to say is: guys, why the divide?
Excuse me darling. That was never proven. The reason why I get frustrated with people like this is because they never have their facts right. Not appreciating his music is one thing, I kind of understand why some people wouldn’t, but don’t attack someone on the basis of something that was never proven.
I am a Michael Jackson fan, and proud of it.
