#when existentialism becomes comforting rather than horrifying
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise
Tia Baheri: “Your Ability to Can Even: A Defense of Internet Linguistics" | The Toast
Totally worth reading the whole article, especially the part on Tumblr and gender.
Internet linguistics is super fascinating to me.
This whole article is absolutely fascinating. As someone who is older than the average tumblr user, and someone who can be a bit of a grammar freak, it took me a long time to get used to the Tumblrisms, but now I find them incredibly useful.
love it when privileged folks screech “HOW ABOUT WE JUST BE NICE TO EVERYONE???”
as if we haven’t tried “nice”
as if we haven’t spent our entire lives bowing our heads, stepping out of the way, biting our tongues
as if we haven’t laughed at jokes that bit at us like sharp…
BEST FRIENDS YOU DON’T GET TO TALK TO VERY OFTEN BC YOU’RE BOTH JUST REALLY BUSY WITH SCHOOL OR WHATEVER BUT ITS NOT A BIG DEAL BC YOURE STILL THE BEST OF FRIENDS NO MATTER WHAT, ARE THE BEST KINDS OF FRIENDS IN THE WHOLE WORLD

Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
W… OOOOOOOOOO BOY FINALLY. I took pictures of him! I was dreading photographing him because he’s such a high contrast design and I knew he would be super difficult to photograph and light, but I finally did it.
I was originally intending to make an actual quote-set for him, but the printer is out of ink… so hopefully photoshop quotes will suffice!
Kankri is one of my absolute favorite personal fan-art dolls I’ve made and I wish it hadn’t taken me this long to photograph him, but between being busy and not wanting to mess with him… it took a while! Just like all of the others, he’s fully posable and everything you see was hand-made by me from scratch. All patterns are mine, all that good stuff.
About 7 inches tall. (and yes, his shoes work :D )
Coldplay - Til Kingdom Come
For you I’d wait ‘til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you’ll come and set me free
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me
DAY 8: FAVOURITE FLYING POKEMON
Talonflame’s my current favourite flying… love the idea of it smoking as it cools down after a battle!
WAERSTRDHVYBJNKM.AWSERDFTBHJNKMJYTFYR. This is what Im talking about when I say double standard thing. weh. I mean, sure, he broke the law, he deserves to go to jail, or face up to his crime, but really. Imagine if this was a woman. A woman tried to rob a store, and then got the shit beaten out of her and used as a sex slave for 3 days as her punishment by the owner of said store. IT WOULDNT BE FUNNY. PEOPLE WOULD FLIP. SHIT.
Mainly, what Im trying to say here, is that this isn’t okay for ANYONE to do, whether its a woman to a man or a man to a woman. Rape shouldn’t be funny. You see this a lot, actually. That gif where the girl and guy are in some kind of argument and are both upset, and then the girl proceeds to slap/punch him multiple times, and then kiss him after, and it’s some kind of ‘romanticized’ cliche. It shouldn’t be romantic, it should be looked at just as if a guy punched a girl a few times in an argument and then tried to kiss her. It’s not good. It’s not, “Don’t punch me, because I’m a girl” It’s “Don’t punch me, because I’m a fucking human being.”
Also, on ‘The View’ when they talked about the case where the man got his dick chopped off by his crazy wife when he wanted a divorce and they proceeded to make fun at it. Imagine if a woman got her body mutilated by her crazy husband if she wanted a divorce.
Rape is never funny, and some people don’t seem to get that when the roles are switched and the male is being mistreated that it’s still wrong. I’m sorry if I’m letting the funny hype down and being some ‘asshole’ about ruining the joke, but I just don’t see this as funny. Rape is never funny.
^ BLESS YOU
