The choice is yours.

This is a shit ton of bullshit and shaming. People are born with health problems and perfectly healthy people develop health problems. There isn’t always a choice.

are your eyes red, itchy, and inflamed? don’t reach for those eyedrops, just grab a fucking red pepper and shove that into your eyes instead, just fucking jam all the vegetables you can into your eyes you fucking animal just do it
go green
go green

Inject V8 directly into your veins you miserable bag of trash. Get a giant syringe full of vegetable juice and stab right through your fucking arm in a wild attempt to cure your heart condition.

Wow, and here I could have saved all the time and discomfort of fucking brain surgery by eating a leek or something. WHO KNEW?!

Commentary. On. Point.

*standing ovation*


i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect” 

Being into ‘proper grammar’ and ‘correct punctuation’ isn’t necessarily smug superiority.  Even with those who do feel smugly superior it doesn’t then necessarily mean they are racist or in any way prejudiced. Knowing where the apostrophes belong and whether to say who’s or whose doesn’t make people racist.  Racial prejudice makes people racist, and those who are racially prejudiced don’t give a fuck whether ‘people of colour’ know their grammar or punctuation or not, and they really don’t give a fuck if ‘people of colour’ are intelligent.  Their minds have been made up before they’ve read anything or heard anything to know either way.

I’m fairly tuned in to ‘correct punctuation’ and I take real fucking exception that you imply that that means I hold some prejudice against anyone - class, race or intellect - anything.

It’s possible for people to be intelligent, hung up on punctuation and grammar, have pride in logic and intellect without being prejudiced - simply because there are some very intelligent people who know sod-all about punctuation and grammar and there are some very unintelligent people who can be very clever.  And both could be of any race and class. You know that.  Everyone knows that.  So why assume that a person who gets hung up about people using semi colons instead of dashes (for example) must have some hang-up about class, race and intellect?

So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism.
