IF YOU FEEL LIKE THAT, YOU SHOULD EVALUATE YOUR CAREER DECISION AND YOU SHOULDN’T TRY TO COMMISERATE AND JUSTIFY YOUR FEELINGS BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST A SHITHEAD IF YOU THINK LIKE THAT ON A /REGULAR FUCKING BASIS/

like feeling that way once in a while is understandable to me? esp if you have to deal w a high caseload and you get a little burned out

but if these feelings just never go away? you need some time to yourself to contemplate whether or not you have it in you to take care of people so sick/injured/whatever they need somebody else’s help

g o d

yeah it was super depressing ALSO SCARY bc the one common thread , aside from them thinkin it was HI-LAR-I-OUS these ppls misfortunes

in a snotty hipster way

was CLASS like they were CLEARLY despisin em bc they were poor , whether they were poor white ppl or poor minority ppl , whether it was cities or rural areas or wherever , it was LOL DUMB PPL WHO DONT TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES esp homeless ppl that was like the funniest to them DRUNK / DRUGGED HOMELESS DUDE IN TRBL LOLTASTIC

& i knew some horrible premed students in clg who were by their own admission only in it for the money that i hoped wld drop out & become business majors for the sake of any future patients

but i guess they cant all drop out like that

& its scary bc we hear all these stories abt medical professional disrespect leading to bad patient outcomes , even fatal ones

& every few months theres an article in a mainstream pub abt how a doctor or nurse had to deal w the system as a patient or for one of their relatives & OMG , PATIENTS HAVE FEELINGS ! ! WHO KNEW ?? DAMN WE SUCK , WE NEED TO DO BETTER AS A PROFESSION — & HOW WE EDUCATE FUTURE STUDENTS — NO WONDER PPL DONT WANT TO GO TO THE DOCTOR IF THEY CAN AVOID IT IF THIS IS HOW WE COME OFF & then 6 mos later theres another article like that

& there were PAGES & PAGES & PAGES & PAGES goin back yrs of this crappy talk

it was the most depressing thing i ever read

more depressing in some ways than amnesty intl reports

bc those are abt what ppl do to their enemies

& this was what ppl thought it was ok to do to their neighbors they were gettin paid to take care of ( like , yeah , there were some I LEFT THAT ASSHOLE WAITING FOR HRS W NO CLOTHES LOL admissions & if they wld admit things what were they doin / not doin for patients that they DIDNT feel they cld brag abt ??)

all i was tryin to do was find out proper first aid procedures for a fic

I WAS BRACED FOR GRUESOME DETAILS

i was NOT braced for what i found tho

I AM GLAD THE ANONYMITY OF THE INTERNET MADE THEM FEEL FREE ENOUGH TO ADMIT THAT THEY LACK ANY SORT OF HUMANITY

REALLY MAKES ME PUMPED TO GO INTO THE PROFESSION

REALLY MAKES ME PUMPED TO BEAT UP SOME DOCTORS ALSO

(and it’s weird learning this? bc my grandpa’s a pediatric heart surgeon and my grandma’s a clinical nurse specialist and it puts a number of things they’ve said into a disturbing light like)

(forreal my grandma has said she hated how medical care was “wasted on some of these people”)

(and I always thought she meant like murderers or smtg BUT NOW I AM NOT SO SURE)

oh ouch sorry

but to be fair its pretty much just what you find everywhere , the neovictorian attitude that there are the ( few ) “deserving poor” & everyone else who is just poor bc were stupid & lazy

& thus its our own fault we are sick / have bad teeth / suffer from addictions ( LEAVING ASIDE THE WHOLE FAILED ‘WAR ON DRUGS’ BS ) even tho proactive treatment is pretty much out of our reach & even just eating right can be depending on if yr in a ‘food desert’ etc

so its just the cultural climate , the reason its a shock to find it in medical professionals is that we have been raised on this myth that everyone who goes into a caring profession — medical , teaching , firefighting , you name it - does so out of this altruistic love of humanity

like the ideal is the reality in all cases

not that too many ppl do it for the money , or the power trips , or the adrenaline highs , even when they admit it right out to you in person that that is their motivation THE SAME PPL WILL GET ALL SHIRTY WHEN YOU POINT OUT THAT THEYRE NOT DOIN THEIR JOB WELL LET ALONE FOR NOBLE REASONS

bc i dont care what anybody says — & some of the posters on that forum defended their trashtalking by saying ITS OKAY WE DONT SAY THIS TO THEM , THEYRE NOT READING THE FORUM & ITS ALL ANON ANYWAY — you dont not let those kind of attitudes seep thru into yr interactions

ppl can tell

if yr bigoted , class or race or sexism , it SHOWS in yr behavior

almost nobody ( a few can but not many ) can be completely duplicitous like that , where nobody had a clue what their real believes & attitudes were

but it does seem to me like the medical community is tryin to serve two masters , humanity & mammon , & mammons winning big time

but then social snobbery isnt a new invention either , unf

jennaria answered to your post “drift compatibility pretest - rock paper scissors??”

My wife and I have to close our eyes when we’re playing rps, or we get the same thing too.

whoa that is cool , i cant imagine what sort of expression change cld signal what hand you were abt to play , it seems even more random than a poker “tell”

torn

bc now that the 50 SHADES trailer has come out i am happier than ever that charlie hunnam is out of that mess

HOWEVER

i am also doin the evil laughter thing as i see 50 SHADES fandom complaining that jamie dornan isnt all that

& im like HAH yes well you complained & freaked bc YOU didnt think that charlie hunnam was handsome enf to be yr christian grey

so you got this

image

image

bland w a helpin of bland on top , from a guy whose line delivery is mumbly AND flatter than pancakes

& got this

image

image

image

when you cld have gotten this instead

image

& i know it is ttly inconsistent to feel this

or to think that charlie h wld have done a VASTLY better job of playin 50 SHADES menacing gaslighting charmer AS THE MONSTER HE IS— remember he was considered for the role of prince nuada—

& even if he was in it it wld still be a horrorshow & i RLY dont

but all i can think is

WE ARE GETTING CHARLIE H & TOM H & MIA WASIKOWSKA & A WHOLE STELLAR ENSEMBLE CAST IN A GOTHIC COUNTRY HOUSE MURDER MYSTERY & THE SET PHOTOS LOOK LIKE TIME TRAVELERS FROM THE PAGES OF THE STRAND

savor charlie in a longcoat & homburg in toronto — & many more CRIMSON PEAK set pics here (x)

image

image

image

 all i can think is , we get CRIMSON PEAK

image

theyre getting ‘anastasia steele’ in all her gormless selfdestructiveness CONVINCED THAT HER INNER GODDESS CAN “CHANGE HIM” into a decent human being SOLVE HIS MANPAIN 4EVA BY LETTIN HIM HAVE HIS WAY

image

we otoh gonna get a bookish bluestocking heroine

image

who in another incarnation bore a vorpal blade OH YES THAT FIGURES IN no way it doesnt given my charts of degrees of separation

image

from what del toro told comic-con this is what they wld have called in the forties a “womans picture” like GASLIGHT & REBECCA , bc he said this is a gothic anti-romance focusing on ediths story as she finds out her husband — tom hiddleston — isnt what he seems

image

& the spirits of place , of a house that to me shouts GORMENGHAST ( only hopefully w more plot )

image

& THE WHITE ADMIRAL BUTTERFLY which is found in both hemispheres & both american & european-asian varieties latin names are tied to diana & warrior women — is ediths symbol in the comicon exhibit ! !

image

YEAHimage

while theyre gonna get a movie that every sensible person reacts to w the same bleak expression we see max martini wearin for the instant hes on ( rainblurred out of focus) screen in the trailer

image

WE HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR & CHANGE FOR OURS THO

THEY WILL GET THEIRS IN FEB & WE HAVE TO WAIT TIL OCT

that is the only bad thing so far

drift compatibility pretest - rock paper scissors??

the other day i was downtown & there were these two little girls , maybe 10 @ most , playing rock paper scissors while they waited arnd for their parents

& they got the EXACT SAME THING

EVERY

SINGLE

TIME

over & over like 5x in a row

& i thought THAT IS ADORABLE & CREEPY & LOOKS LIKE EVIDENCE OF PSYCHIC POWERS

& then oc i thought “DAMN THEY ARE SOOOO DRIFT COMPATIBILE”

( as you do )

ahaha so many ppl are like ttl assholes to everybody & its some kind of life challenge theyre doin YOU GOTTA STAY W ME NO MATTER HOW AWFUL I AM —OR ELSE YOU NEVER REEEEELLLY LOVED / LIKED ME ! ! !

& when everyone finally dumps their ass & they have ZERO friends left bc nobody will put up w them its like THIS PROVES I AM SUCH A VALIANT TRUTH TELLING LONER ! ! ! WHEN EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU THAT PROVES YR RIGHT ! !

instead of HEY MAYBE ITS YOU BEIN A JERK ! ? ! but go on tellin yrself that yr alone bc yr the only honest & open soul in the whole wide world

it hasnt gotten any fresher since

my tumblr pet peeves:

  • automatic playing music
  • music that automatically starts
  • when a song just starts automatically when I go to your page
  • that song that interrupts my song because it started without my knowledge 
  • music on your page that just comes out of nowhere

LOOK COMICS & MOVIE CREATORS , THIS IS HOW YOU RECOGNIZE YOU WERE REINFORCING HARMFUL TROPES IN THE PAST

& STOP DOING IT WITH A LAMPSHADING OF IT THAT WORKS INSTORY

EVEN IF YOU WERE ALREADY HEAD&SHOULDERS ABOVE THE CROWD IN TERMS OF YR SJ CREDS

( dammit giant i have a lump in my throat now )

also for those who argue that the BDSM com is ttly free of abuse

& the problem w 50 SHADES is that its not REAL bdsm

i suggest you spend some time at pervocracy where they deal w the missing stairs of kink A LOT

http://pervocracy.blogspot.com/

& reading the blogs of ppl who have experienced rape & other noncon abuse in serious legit kinkster communties, & been silenced & shunned online & off

bc “it will make us look bad to the mainstream’ all the same excuses made by churches & colleges & everywhere for vanilla sexual harassment

& YES THERE IS A BIG OVERLAP BTWN KINK & SF FANDOM so some of the missing stairs are the same ppl

& YES ALSO THERE IS A STRONG MALE-AS-NATURAL-DOM / FEMALE-AS-NATURAL-SUB ATTITUDE PREVALENT IN KINK COMMUNITIES ACCORDING TO THESE BLOGGERS so iow its just like ordinary patriarchal rape culture only w fancier toys & costumes , waaay too much of the time

ITS NOT DUBCON/NONCON ITS BDSM ! ! ! is a great excuse & ive heard soooo many horror stories — & tbh the several fem doms ive known irl have all BEEN TERRIBLE ABT RESPECTING OTHER PPLS BOUNDARIES IN NON-PLAY SOCIAL SITUATIONS TOO scenstering & worse — that i wld NEVER EVER GET INVOLVED w any formal bdsm grp no matter how curious i get

the problem as always is as granny weatherwax wld say — treatin ppl as things

its a lack of respect , & it stems from a lack of empathy — the inability to see another human being as yr equal instead of something to be used in one way or another

including as a stepping stone to make yrself look socially higher in yr little grp

( which is a hell of a lot of tumblrs “sj” posturing tbh )

BTW PERVOCRACY IS DOIN A NEW FEATURE ON 50 SHADES BC OF THE TRAILER so check it out BUT THEY HAVE BEEN CRITIQUING IT SINCE LAST FALL CHAPTER BY CHAPTER , ALL YOU TUMBLR & TWITTER CHAMPIONS WHO THINK YOU INVENTED THE CONCEPT OF 50 SHADES BASHING—

http://pervocracy.blogspot.com/2013/09/lets-read-fifty-shades-of-grey-chapter-1.html

also aside to CHAMPIONS WHO ARE THE ONLY ONES FIGHTING 50 SHADES

just stop

stop claiming that NOBODY ELSE HAS BEEN CRITICIZING EL JAMES FOR PROMOTING ABUSE UNTIL YOU CAME ALONG & THIS PROVES FEMINISM SUCKS BLAH BLAH BLAH

look i realize life is difficult when yr a cicada person & you have literally spent the last 17 yrs underground & just crawled out into daylight , it must be rly hard to understand that YES LIFE WAS GOING ON ALL THAT TIME YOU WERE UNDER YR TREE ROOTS OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT WAS HAPPENING UPSTAIRS

but feminist fans HAVE BEEN SLAMMING 50 SHADES SINCE BEFORE IT WAS REPACKAGED FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION ie since it was a TWILIGHT fanfic AS A CONTINUATION OF SLAMMING TWILIGHT OVER THE SAME ISSUES

no it didnt happen on tumblr bc tumblr was barely a little baby website back then GUESS WHAT THE INTERNET IS BIGGER THAN TUMBLR & TWITTER & ALSO OLDER most of the critiques of 50 SHADES & TWILIGHT happened on livejournal / dreamwidth or wordpress blogs or GASP ! ! ! individuals own hosted sites

but see there is this thing called google

you can type in 50 SHADES SEXIST and also specify a range of dates even ! ! so you can see what ppl were sayin abt stuffs BEFORE YOU WOKE UP & CRAWLED OUT INTO THE INTERNETS

amazing i know

you can even look on PROFESSIONAL REVIEW SITES & find out that yr stunning new I AM THE BIGGEST DAMN HERO & EVERYBODY ELSE SUCKS revelations were bein made by mainstream commenters yrs ago

i know

why wld anyone want to do that ??

who cares abt reality & fairness WHEN YOU CAN BE THE STAR OF YR OWN REALITY SHOW

but hey

just sayin

it will make you look less of a fool & an arrant ass @ that

& then those of us who WERENT hatched yesterday

will be more inclined to pay attn to the next thing you buzz

instead of assumin its something you didnt bother to check up on

to make yrself feel better abt yrself

THIS HAS BEEN A PSA FROM THE FEMINIST HIVE MIND , WHICH IS LIKE ONE OF THOSE ANT COLONIES THAT STRETCHES ALONG ENTIRE COASTLINES & HAS GENERATIONS OF PAST COLLECTIVE MEMORY

omg i have literally over 1600 draft posts asdfjkl;

things i saw on my dash but didnt have time to retag or comment on but wanted to save for future reblog , mostly

its a kind of data hoarding i guess

I WILL NEVER EVER GO THRU THEM ALL & TAG & REPOST but i still keep saving new links for future use

DAMN YOU X-KIT ! !
