Shut the fuck up about Pluto

When we learn new facts, we have to reconsider our systems of categorization. Science adapts to new information—in this case, the increasing number of other Kuiper belt objects we’ve discovered, including ones bigger than Pluto. They’re not new planets, so neither is Pluto. Not to mention the orbital behavior.

It’s still there. It’s still called Pluto. It’s just a Kuiper belt object.

Science adapts to new facts. This Pluto nostalgia isn’t cute and it has an undercurrent of anti-science, anti-intellectual backwardness. Get over the outdated models you learned in first grade and learn something new about the goddamn solar system, because the solar system is exciting and we learn amazing new things about it literally every single day.

The universe doesn’t give a fuck about your grade school nostalgia.

Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.

and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.

Ke$ha stands in the category of “gifted genius”, she scored near perfect (1500) on her SAT’s and has an IQ of 140

if you don’t like Ke$ha, i don’t like you
i am 100% serious

i’m a fan of both homestuck and my little pony and let me tell you I have seen a lot of hate for both fandoms, because let’s be real, they are two of the most easy-to-hate fandoms around today

but the majority of negativity about my little pony fans has come from people inside the fandom, because we have bad experiences with fellow fans

it is completely different and it’s not the same

How non-creepy fans should react to the bad eggs in their fandoms.

reminder that the overwhelming majority of people I see who complain about and dislike bronies are, in fact, members of the fandom

i see the argument framed a lot as “not all fans of the show are like that don’t judge all fans by it”

no, not all fans are like that
they’re not, and we know this, because we’re fans of the show who have had bad experiences with other fans

I love My Little Pony, and I’ve had to deal with bronies harassing me, harassing my friends, to the point where I have felt unsafe wearing my pony shirts and hoodies because of the way VERY VOCAL FANS have treated me
(i once had a brony insist on sending me material DELIBERATELY INTENDED TO SET OFF A TRIGGER after I told him I’m not into the ‘dark’ side of the fandom; a friend of mine, WHILE SHE WAS UNDERAGE, was sexually harassed by bronies at a convention; I was once followed late-night in Walmart by a young man in a my little pony shirt, because I was wearing a pon-3 hoodie)

No, I know not all fans of the show are like that, and I know not all people who call themselves bronies are like that!
but instead of telling people to stop complaining about bronies, maybe try setting a better example.

if you’re not one of the crazy fans, they’re probably not talking about you
and if people do assume you’re one of those fans when you say you’re a brony, maybe start addressing and confronting the people who created the association in the first place

so I don’t hoard a lot of urls but I may have just nabbed “scumself”
if I ever decide to take my gender blogging to a sideblog guess what I’m using
