This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

Related: why does it seem to be impossible (from a religious person’s point of view) for God to have created evolution and all the stuff that comes with it?  Why can’t God create all the observed phenomena that we science?  Why can’t God create science?

Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana

Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.

100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.

There’s a difference between being attracted to Asian women and only seeking out Asian women.  Some guys don’t get that.  That makes me sad.

I think the fact that fire houses easily hook up to jet fuel -… dispensers?  Hydrants? - is just inappropriate.

According to Daily Mail:

A student in Taiwan who kept a pair of disposable contact lenses in her eyes for six months has been left blinded after a microscopic bug devoured her eyeballs. 

The tiny single-cell amoeba ate away at undergraduate Lian Kao’s sight because she didn’t take out and clean the contacts once during that time.

According to a warning issued by doctors the case was a particularly severe example of a young person under pressure who did not take the time to carry out basic hygiene on their contact lenses.

As well as being regularly cleaned, contact lenses should also be removed when swimming and washing.

The general advice is to avoid wearing contacts for more than eight hours a day. 

YIKES!

Ok, I’ll be better about this…

It boggles my mind how people can wear a pair of contacts for more than the prescribed amount of time. After two weeks, my two-week lenses are so thick with protein that they dry out and it hurts to wear them. After 12 hours in a brand-spankin’ new pair, my eyes are really really ready to not be wearing them anymore. Sleeping in your contacts? Don’t even get me started. The couple of times I have fallen asleep without taking them out on accident, I awoke in the middle of the night to searing pain in my eyes—it hurts almost too much to even take them out. Then my eyes need a full day to recover before they can accept wearing them again.

Maybe I have special eyes.

MY BRAND

I wear my contacts for weeks (maybe even more than a month?) and I haven’t had any troubles ever.

LOVE
