Notice how if we were to stop arguing about who’s right or wrong we could pretty much change the world.

Common Sense-ism: Don’t be an asshole.

It’s not just a matter of not arguing or not insulting people. What all of these texts are saying is actually really fucking difficult.

What they are really saying is that you need to treat every single person you meet every single day with the consideration that you yourself would want. It’s a very high standard. It means, among myriad other things: do not be snappish and take your frustrations out on someone else who doesn’t deserve it. Do not be unkind to someone whose communication style grates on you because it’s different from your own. Do not be pushy or demanding if someone is currently unable to meet your need (whatever that need may be). Etcetera etcetera.

What these texts are asking for is deep and consistent empathy. With everyone.

The Wiccan Rede is ‘An (if) it harm none, do as ye will,” but we take a VERY broad definition of what ‘harm’ means, and hell yes, things like gratuitous nastiness on the Internet or rudeness to a server or failure to wash that roommate’s dishes you’re using are definitely a form of harm.

The one common element all these texts have is that they are demanding that you look within yourself and examine your own actions.

The one common meaning is this: judge others generously, because you don’t know other people’s trials. Treat others the way you would want to be treated on a day when you were feeling particularly hurt and vulnerable and most in need of kindness and forgiveness.

The Golden Rule.

Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world. 

That is rape culture

THIS POST WINS FOR THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I’VE READ ALL DAY

the english language, everyone

This hit me like a brick

And people wonder why authors use italics and bold and shit so reader’s understand what’s going the fuck on.

And of course I just read this in my head 7 times, stressing each word differently. 

i still don’t understand this…
holy shit yes.

I did all 7 versions out loud, it was fun
