the-unpopular-opinions:

This flag (that’s the confederate flag for those that don’t know) is not racist.

Let me explain:

  • Yes, the flag represented the South during the Civil War
  • Yes, the South was on the wrong side of the war
  • The South knows they were on the wrong side
  • Southerners would laugh in your face if you suggested that they wanted to bring slavery back
  • Now, the flag is just a representation of southern pride (non-related to the war)

Reasons someone would own a confederate flag:

  • They’re a history buff who likes to collect Civil War items
  • They’re from the South and proud of it
  • They had ancestors in the Confederacy
  • They do Civil War reenactments

There is nothing wrong with owning one of these flags. It means “I’m from the South and proud of it.” It no longer has any relation to slavery and, as it’s a flag, is not oppressing anyone.

To suggest otherwise is nothing but ignorance.

This flag (That’s the Nazi flag, for those who don’t know) is NOT racist.

Let me explain.

  • Yes, this flag represented Germany during World War II.
  • Yes, Germany was on the wrong side of the war.
  • Germany knows they were on the wrong side.
  • Germans would laugh in your face if you suggested that they wanted to bring the Holocaust back.
  • Now, the flag is just a representation of German pride (Non-related to the war)

Reasons someone would own a Nazi flag:

  • They’re a history buff who likes to collect World War II items.
  • They’re from Germany and proud of it.
  • They had ancestors in Nazi Germany
  • They do World War II reenactments.

There is nothing wrong with owning one of these flags. It means “I’m from Germany and proud of it.” It no longer as any relation to genocide and, as it’s a flag, is not oppressing anyone.

To suggest otherwise is nothing but ignorance.

Does that sound stupid to you? I hope it does, because it is, and it’s exactly what OP sounds like.

OMFG. you OWNED him with that nazi thing. though, I have to admit, I am german and my grandfather brought back from stuff he got off of dead germans in the war (he was fighting in Normandy) and I wanted to keep it because of the history (not because its LYKE SEW TOTALLY KEWL NAZI!111) but it also creeped me the hell out too. Whenever I see rebel flags on people, or they collect them, I know to stay away, because more than likely that person is a racist dickhead.. pretty much the same with swastikas.

that last one is amazing.

It will be a cold day in Hell when I look to the majority to tell me how to feel about my body. 

I DON’T CARE

I am 230-240ish lbs (you can tell I pay attention to the scale so much!) and 5’9”. I’m female, and I don’t care if you don’t like it. I don’t care if you moo, or think I’m ugly, or hate fat people or “I’m killing myself waaaah.” especially when I exercise, eat alright (Probably too much but eh.) and keep in touch with my doctor. 

Oh, You like fat people? Good for you! 

You don’t? Good for you! There’s the door, have a good life somewhere else. 

I don’t NEED your pity, I’m not looking for you validation, I’m not seeking out your stares, y’all are the ones who are making a big deal out of something that isn’t your business. You don’t think I’m attractive? That’s fine! Go look at people who are attractive to you, there are plenty; 88% of the time if you tell me you think I look unattractive, chances are I don’t think you are either. (I won’t date women under 180lbs.)  Please don’t suggest diet types or tips like the Food Pyramid’s version of Jehovah’s Witnesses, just go about your day. I eat what I like when I want to, if I want your opinion I will politely ask for it. 

If you’re skinny and you’re happy, cool! I’m really glad for you, congrats! I’m Fat and I’m happy (no not curvy or ‘hefty’ or whatever I’m I-Like-Pie FAT) and until I’m ready to change, I’m going to be happy with who I am. It’s alright if you don’t like it, but just, I dunno, go about your day and enjoy your life and just leave me to enjoy mine. 

Other things to Remember: 

  • Please don’t be rude to anyone, it’s terrible. 
  • Being heavy does not GUARANTEE you will get diabetes or heart disease any more than drinking alcohol will give you liver problems. It’s a crapshoot of genetics, situation, types of consumption and other variables. I run the risk knowing what it is, no need to tell me.
  • Please don’t assume someone who is overweight is unhappy with their weight or overly happy with their weight—encourage people to do what makes them happy! If they want to lose weight, good for them! They don’t? Good for them!
  • People who are very skinny don’t always have eating disorders! Some people have slow/fast metabolisms! 
  • Some people who are fat DO have over-eating disorders. (no need to tag anything, but do keep it in mind, they could be fighting a battle you can’t see!)
  • "Body Positive" doesn’t happen overnight! If you don’t like something and want to change it, do so! But keep in mind that you have good qualities too along with things you need to work on (your personality, your sense of humor ect.) 
  • Sometimes, you need to cut people out of your life that are negative. This applies to both skinny or fat people, anyone who drags you down or makes you feel embarrassed or humiliate for being yourself. That hurts a lot, but it’s okay, in the long run, getting rid of disgusting people who are shallow with terrible attitudes, makes you feel better. Don’t try fix people, just get them out of your way.
  • Be yourself, love yourself, and have a happy life. 

I love this post. Also, I keep seeing the dumb asses in here post that “we” are paying some sort of “fat tax” supposedly? When did that come into play? Should I look for that on my w-2 forms?

So you know what I don’t get? Why people repeat words. (x)

Grammar time: it’s called “contrastive reduplication,” and it’s a form of intensification that is relatively common. Finnish does a very similar thing, and others use near-reduplication (rhyme-based) to intensify, like Hungarian (pici ‘tiny’, ici-pici ‘very tiny’).

Even the typologically-distant group of Bantu languages utilize reduplication in a strikingly similar fashion with nouns: Kinande oku-gulu ‘leg’, oku-gulu-gulu ‘a REAL leg’ (Downing 2001, includes more with verbal reduplication as well).

I suppose the difficult aspect of English reduplication is not through this particular type, but the fact that it utilizes many other types of reduplication: baby talk (choo-choo, no-no), rhyming (teeny-weeny, super-duper), and the ever-famous “shm” reduplication: fancy-schmancy (a way of denying the claim that something is fancy).

screams my professor was trying to find an example of reduplication so the next class he came back and said “I FOUND REDUPLICATION IN ENGLISH” and then he said “Milk milk” and everyone was just “what?” and he said “you know when you go to a coffee shop and they ask if you want soy milk and you say ‘no i want milk milk’” and everyone just had this collective sigh of understanding.

Another name for this particular construction is contrastive focus reduplication, and there’s a famous linguistics paper about it which is commonly known as the Salad Salad Paper. You know, because if you want to make it clear that you’re not talking about pasta salad or potato salad, you might call it “salad salad”. The repetition indicates that you’re intending the most prototypical meaning of the word, like green salad or cow’s milk, even though other things can be considered types of salad or milk. 

Can I make love to this post?… Is that a thing that’s possible?

i just had a linguistgasm.

lol no way, if someone said salad salad or milk milk to me, I would laugh in their face, but these examples in the gifs make sense.. like like, or spicy spicy, or even fancy fancy, I would totally understand.. they are variants on the other word… not just spicy but an EXTRA spicy, not just fancy but an extra degree of fancy (where I need to wear a necklace and earrings and not just pants but maybe a dress and stuff). If I wanted to know if a guy like liked me… well.. I haven’t said that since middle school but yeah… :D

Armageddon (1998)

I was just watching this and so towards the end, the scene with bruce and liv tyler (not spoiling it, in case some people here haven’t seen it) I started bawling like a baby, and my mom just looks over at me and laughs.
