hi, i'm Liz. i'm a 23 year old cis woman who blogs about a wide range of things; anything from varying feminist issues, Fall Out Boy, things that make me laugh, pretty pictures, to most recently Marvel related anythings. i fully admit to having a Sebastian Stan problem. occasionally there will be nsfw posts that i will tag accordingly, as well as quite a lot of cussing :p right now i'm working as a health aide at a school and trying to figure out what i want to be doing with my life. rebloging cute people seems to be helping me get through the less pleasant times, and i hope y'all enjoy the mish-mash!
"Here is the sociological definition of racism that is more useful in discussing race relations because it acknowledges the system of racism as a whole instead of just on a person to person level."
“Yeah but the Merriam Webster dictionary says—”
Well no, you don’t get to say that because racism is already a word with a clearly defined meaning: discriminating against people based on their race. You can’t just get up and say that racism is anything but that
You seem to have difficulty understanding how definitions work. Different disciplines use different definitions. The Merriam Webster dictionary was written by white men who don’t specialize in race relations. It’s not as in depth as the sociological definition of racism. I didn’t just come up with a brand new definition of racism on the spot arbitrarily.
Here’s how I like to explain it. My husband is getting his doctorate in Physics. I am not. When he explains to me what gravity means in the context of his field, I don’t whip out a goddamn dictionary and say, “Nuh-uh! That’s not what the dictionary says it is!” I listen to how it is defined and applied in his field because that’s what is relevant to the discussion. More so, that’s the most detailed and complete definition of the term. Pulling out a dictionary to argue the definition of a word shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how words are defined. Those who use words define them; the dictionary only reflects our usage in the simplest manner it can. And, as it was pointed out above, the people who record these definitions are not representative of the people who use the terms to begin with.
3D Audio of Centuries by Fall Out Boy (Requested)
What is 3D Audio?
3D audio effects are a group of sound effects that manipulate the sound produced by stereo speakers, surround-sound speakers, speaker-arrays, or headphones. This frequently involves the virtual placement of sound sources anywhere in three-dimensional space, including behind, above or below the listener.
Only works with headphones/earphones
People are quick to blame video games on why gamers are giant assholes, but I don’t think thats the case at all
I think the “gamer community” created a perfect environment for nerds to become the bullies they always wanted to be
i’m in bed and was wondering where my cat is so i was all “oh I’ll just text him” and opened the messages app before i realized what i was doing
