Sooooo….the top left.

You’ve got to be SHITTING me.

Let me get this straight: somebody can say tons of racist and homophobic shit and still get crowned one of the most “Influential” teens of 2014 by Time Magazine?

Is that a message we’re trying to send out to America’s youth? “You can be a huge cunt and offend a lot of people, but who cares?! Here’s a prize for your douchebaggery!”

Regardless of how many followers he has on Vine, I don’t think a bigot deserves this title. 

Want to know why he’s on the list?

Because each day he has to put up with people like you that constantly bring him down. Can you believe that? He’s a 16 year old who has made one mistake and he has millions like you telling him to die and calling him crash, his response? He tries not to let it get to him, even though he’s had a history of depression. You people literally drove him to delete his tumblr.

THE SAME PEOPLE that are so against bullying and critize a person for making mistakes in their past. You may ask why I said one mistake and not two? Sure it was offensive when he yelled fag in a video following an AIDS commercial, but guess what he has apologized so many times and he had put down the video. He’s tried so hard to prove he is genuinely sorry. Then he made a video in which he stated HIS PREFERENCE.

I find it so fucking insane that people are literally telling him to die and calling him a sexist for saying that HE doesn’t like body hair on women. NEWSFLASH HUNNY MILLIONS OF MEN AND WOMEN AGREE WITH HIM, SO SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLE FULL OR IGNORANCE BUT ITS TRUE. I don’t like guys with fucking mustaches, so what? Are you going to push me to delete my tumblr and constantly make threats?

YASSSSSSS REBLOGGING FOR THE LAST COMMENT

^^

☝️yaaas BITCH

Okay, I can understand if you like him and want to defend him but one mistake? Let’s go down the list, shall we? 

(In No Particular Order)

1. What Guys Look For In Girls: A video, which, by the title, would imply all guys are like this. This video wouldn’t have been so upsetting if it wasn’t someone with this much power. This guy has millions of people, mostly young, teenage girls, who watch his videos and now feel bad about themselves. I could go into more detail, but literally everything I could say is in this video by TheThirdPew who is only a year older than Nash. I suggest you watch it.

2. Use of homophobic and racist statements on twitter: This is a biggie. A lot of these tweets have since been deleted but he still made them. I don’t really think this one needs an explanation. Not to mention the horrible grammar in some of them, but hey I’m not Jack Douglass.

3. The HIV Vine: If you don’t know about this, this is a vine he made from an advertisement raising awareness for HIV Testing, where it’s stated ‘it’s not a gay thing!’ and cuts into a clip of him saying, ‘yes it is, f*g!’ Which again, shouldn’t need an explanation. The vine has been taken down, but I think you can still find it reposted on a bunch of places, such as Tyler Oakley’s twitter.

I could go on, but these are the three biggest things that come to mind. Now, I’m not saying he’s a bad person. You know, I think there’s good in everybody (10 points if you got that reference). It’s just the fact that he has all of this power, and he’s using it to spread hate. 

'But he's only 16 and has a lot of pressure on him!' 

Are you freaking kidding me?

No doubt about it, he has pressure on him, but let’s look at another person on the list: Malala.

She literally got shot in the head for trying to go to school. There’s a lot of people who want her dead in the world, and unlike the 'millions like you telling him to die and calling him crash' (A direct quote from the above statement). These people actually have the ability to kill her. And she knows that. But she’s spreading her message, and that message doesn’t have to do with freaking shaving your legs.

I’m not trying to compare him to Malala in any way. She’s an activist and he’s a viner. But he has so much potential to be doing something good, I mean, and it’s not like it’s impossible. Other YouTubers and viners have done plenty of things…off the top of my head: 

1. Tyler Oakley has raised over $500,000 for The Trevor Project for suicidal teenagers. (Donate here: x

2. Connor Franta has raised over $230,000 for The Thirst Project. The money will be used to build wells in Africa. 

And in non monetary ways, many YouTubers have made videos about body positivity, mental disorders, and other heavy issues in an effort to make people feel better about themselves (ie. Shane Dawson’s videos about eating disorders, suicide, etc., Emma Blackery’s music video about how you matter, all those O2L videos saying how pretty and great you are, etc etc…) 

As for ‘oh but he apologized.’ 

Don’t even.

What he did was hardly an apology. He literally wrote tweets slightly over the character limit, saying (a direct quote from one of the tweets) 'I was young and stupid' 

Okay, first of all, that’s something you say 20 years after something happens and you actually have time to reflect on how bad the thing was, not less than 6 months later. 

Secondly, if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.

  • if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
  • if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
  • if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.

I don’t know how many times I can say it. If you are genuinely sorry about something, you’re not going to make a little tiny tweet about it, post it long enough for someone to screenshot it, and then delete it. 

Example? Shane Dawson. Notorious for offensive videos, arguably worst of all: Black Facing. 

image

What Shane did was completely wrong. But, the way he addressed the issue was very mature of him and much more than a little tweet. You can watch his apology video here: x. This is how an apology is meant to be. He doesn’t try to justify what he did in any way. He acknowledges that he was ignorant and deleted every single video that included that type of offensive material. He even tried removing ads on that video so people would realize he wasn’t trying to make a quick buck off of it.

image

So, in short: STOP TRYING TO TURN THIS FREAKING LITTLE SHIT INTO A MARTYR. HE IS NOT A MARTYR. 

HE IS A TEENAGE BOY WHO NEEDS TO TAKE A STEP BACK, REALIZE HOW POPULAR HE IS, STEP BACK, AND BE A BETTER PERSON.

HE LITERALLY IS ONE OF THE 25 MOST INFLUENTIAL TEENS HE REALLY NEEDS TO REALIZE HOW FREAKING POPULAR HE IS GOODNESS GRACIANYAS. 

Don’t forget his racist jokes about black girls on vine!!!

Finally somebody sad it!!

so in summary, Nash Grier is fucking trash that should be extinguished and if you defend him, you are a literal piece of stinking steaming shit

I love my First Lady

Can you please tell her to tell her husband to stop killing muslims? Thanks

literally all she does is try to make the country “healthy” by giving students shitty school lunches like please do something else and help your husband fix the economy! *goes awf*

Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.

In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here. 

  • President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget. 
  • He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote. 
  • He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto. 
  • He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval. 
  • He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval. 
  • he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
  • congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2)  and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well. 

and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds. 

That tea is delicious

SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN! 

I would love for people to remember this when they want to start blaming the president. Any president, though not all of them have had good ideas.

lemme get in here a sec.

The President needs a 2/3 vote in Congress to get practically anything done, right? Well currently, the 133th US Congress is split with 53 Democratic senators and 45 Republican senators and 201 Democratic representatives and 234 Republican representatives. That makes a pretty even split between the two major political parties. Ever since President Obama was elected into office, the Republicans have voted down every piece of legislation he’s attempted to pass, in an effort to pin him as the worst president in American history, so that they can go back to their white-washed elitist lives and keep all their hoarded money from the people. The President has been doing everything he can to change things, but he cannot do that without the approval of Congress. Remember that week-long shutdown we had? Yeah, that was because the Republicans weren’t getting exactly their way with the budget, so they decided to shut down the whole goddamn government until they got their way. The United States Government relies on compromise and agreement between the two parties, and we’re seriously lacking right now in that department.

So if you want to blame someone for our country’s issues, blame the goddamn Republicans for acting like tantrum-throwing two year olds.

CAN I GET A HELL YEAH ON THAT LAST SENTENCE OF THE LAST COMMENT!

If you watched the video or had aghast seen the video and ignored this commentary, you really need to read it.

ivyblossom:

Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman + "It’s called football"

I do not care about football, or soccer, or any other form of athletic endeavour, quite frankly. Nor am I an American. However.

If you’re British and you’re tempted to complain about what you consider to be an annoying Americanism, consider this: nine times out of ten, that word that is annoying you just an archaic term that originated in the United Kingdom. It has not been invented by some upstart superpower to irritate you. It is in fact most likely the direct result of the extended colonial enterprise conducted by your very own beloved homeland. Congratulations!

Immigrants have a funny tendency to cling on to the traditions, methods, and accents of their home country as they remember it. Nostalgia, perhaps? This is why, when my German mother appeared in post-war Canada in 1950, her teachers thought she was dumb for not being able to read Fraktur (the German alphabet), which had gone out of use in Germany ten years prior, two years before my mother was even born. That’s a thing immigrants often do. They cling, far longer than their home countries do.

This is why North Americans still use the word “gotten” while the English have long since abandoned it, why the English say “I am sat” and we still say “I am sitting” like grammar geeks, and why mocking our accents as “not real English” kind of makes you a dick.

North Americans have a modified version of the accent and language of the people who landed where they are. We’re not quite living fossils, but when it comes to language, the way we speak is evidence of a long history of empire, immigration, and shifting pronunciations. All of our accents have drifted since 1650, but North Americans’ have drifted less than those of the English. You’ve changed. We mostly haven’t. Who’s authentic now, eh?

Soccer is called soccer because at one point, presumably around the time when there was an influx of immigration from the UK to North America, it was the hip thing to do among the probably bearded and flashy young Englishmen to call association football "soccer," just like it was the hip thing to call rugby football “rugger.” The English have forgotten that this was at one point their very own hipster affectation, but the descendants of those stylish and on-trend sports fans have not.

There are things you may legitimately blame Americans for originating; let’s start with their baffling pronunciation for the letter Z. If we could all get on board with Z being pronounced “zed”, that’d be a fine thing.

So before you get tetchy about how North Americans speak and what words we use, remember that whole colonialist thing. That irritation you’re feeling is the unintended consequence of empire. Blame the Queen, or something.
