Lets argue about intelectual property

moralanarchism:

Tell me where it is justified.

For real….

Intellectual property is bit of a misnomer.  It implies that you can own ideas, which is not the case.  You can have the government harass people for copying your writing, manufacturing something you have paid the government to suppress,  or drawing certain pictures.

It’s a really convenient misnomer.  I’d be happier if people called it intellectual protectionism or anti-competitive bullshit.

I guess some people would say that it helps folks who are starting out as writers/engineers, but I don’t think it does.  It helps people who have a lot of good lawyers more than it helps anyone else.  For anyone who is interested, just look up patent trolling to learn more about that.

Most people will bring up the expensive cost of designing drugs, but most of that cost is extorted by the government at the behest of lobbies for big pharma.

Inspiring! Open carry demonstrators protest police violence in Dallas. Members of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club march through the streets of South Dallas in protest of police violence in their community. I am sure liberals would accuse these folks of being white racists. Always remember, gun control is racist.

Spread the word! #BlackOpenCarry

Be Your Self

zenarchism:

Be plain old weird fucking you. Judging yourself is a pointless affair. There is no real reason to look at yourself in a mirror and find flaws. You have nothing to compare to because there is no other you. Do not bend or break yourself to some social construct of objective or subjective idealism of what constitutes normal or perfect. Changing yourself in such a way is toxic conformity that is a constant detriment to your existence. You deserve the freedom to be the person inside your chest who blasts out the drum beat of your life. You are your own value system. You are the master of yourself to be what you envision for yourself when you tear down your personal inhibitors and the inhibitors of society around you. 

Don’t care about their commands. Don’t care about their judgments. 
Don’t give a fucking second of your time to anything that tears you down. You’re feeling pressured and anxious and afraid of what they think. Like it’s a wave seeking to destroy you for being strange, or weird, or a freak.But being those things is good, don’t you see. It means you are being new.You are being you. An original person with your own ideas and personality.Any negative descriptions they give is a subjective analysis of theirs. It’s made fallacious, not a fact. They can’t define you. You define you. Free yourself. Be yourself. Fuck what they think.

Really feeling this lately.  Thank you for verbalizing exactly what has been on my mind.

"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

:(

For the past few months, I have begun to see racism more clearly than I ever did.  That someone could share their experience in this way is beautiful.  I hope the next event is more inclusive, too.  Thank you for talking about it.

This comic is about how there are two sides to every story.

on point

A guy insulting his ex to “compliment” you is always a red flag.

If he says all his exes went crazy after a few months, realise that he was the only common factor. -Ash

Trashing exes or the opposite sex in general is a good sign to turn around and run immediately.  It has saved my skin a couple of times:
"You’re not like other guys.""Thanks, what are other guys like?"(really mean stuff)(hide being hurt knowing that the date started off with low expectations)
"What do you want most in your life?""I want to be free.""Ugh, you’re just like every other guy!"(confused because most people I knew were wrapped up in the rat race)
"God! I hate men!""Um, so you hate me?""NOOOO! You’re great!""Um, so am I not a man?"
On all of these accounts, I wasn’t sure at the time when I chose to walk away, but I’m thanking myself today.
Nobody deserves to date someone who doesn’t respect them.  It’s just not ok, no matter who you are.
