So I have been collecting these rectangular objects for a while now. I like them because they have interesting squiggles inside and the outside portions are often brightly colored. What I always forget is what a pain in the ass they are to move.
Books pictured are perhaps two-thirds of my library.
Everyone reblogging this knows that it’s satire, right? Right?

Christianity Today article on original source.
Believe me, I’d love it if all Christians totally abstained totally from sex, in line with the New Testament’s position that sex is the least holy non-inherently-sinful choice, and that more Christian males would take Jeebus’s advice that if you want to get into Heaven, it’s a good idea to cut your dick off. Because if all of the self-described Christians did these things, then there wouldn’t be any more Christians in sixty years or so, and the world would be a better place.
But most Christians pick and choose which parts to accept themselves of the book they’re throwing at you when they make their demands, and this article is therefore satire.

Paul Graham’s Hierarchy of Disagreement
Part 4 in a series about what I see as problematic with discursive modes on Tumblr.
Need I say that Tumblr in general often forgets about this? Of course, this is true of much of the Internet. The whole essay is quite short and worth reading.
“The central problem is this: How can the oppressed, as divided, unauthentic beings, participate in developing the pedagogy of their liberation? Only as they discover themselves to be ‘hosts’ of the oppressor can they contribute to the midwifery of their liberating pedagogy. As long as they live in the duality in which to be is to be like, and to be like is to be like the oppressor, this contribution is impossible. The pedagogy of the oppressed is an instrument for their critical discovery that both they and their oppressors are manifestations of dehumanization.”
—Paolo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, ch. 1 (p. 48 in ISBN 978-0-8264-1276-8)
What I generally assume is going on in someone’s head when they claim we live in a post-racist society.

This is one of the saddest things I have ever seen.
And yet its people like this who accuse gay and lesbian parents for wanting to corrupt the youth.
