how can peach and mario just like casually play tennis with the giant dinosaur turtle monster who is always threatening both of their lives? they all just set aside their pasts to have a good old game of tennis? also did bowser raise bowser jr. himself? is bowser a good father?

i want to write an enormously charitable essay about how fantastically creative it is to read massive amounts of emotional resonance and somehow consistent backstory into legit laziness.

The Truth Is that bowser and peach and mario are all in that game because they are all the same level of famous.

But there is A More Interesting Truth, isn’t there?


louie ck.’s comedy is literally like

*makes vague political commentary any reasonable human would agree with* 

LOLLLLL C*NTS F*GGOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! anyway I’m ugly and sad 

i disagree that louis ck is political commentary at all!

A Proposed General Rule about Pictures of Naked People



I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.

As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.

This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.

So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.

In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.

Seemed a good day to reblog this.

I’m not 100% why I’m seeing people talk about this right now, but then again, I’m also not 100% why men seem to have such a hard time locating pornography that they need to ravenously demand to look at boobs every moment of their lives.

It’s like dude. If that’s a thing you want,

You can set that up.

Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|
