Every damned one of us is an idiot about something or other.
A truth: Jesus “Christ” threw out all the Old Testament rules, and replaced them all with the One Commandment: “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” The Old Testament and New Testament are incompatible with each other.
A thought: What if God sent his Son down to do this because humans speaking in his name was a blasphemy to him, and so all the rules of the Old Testament are blasphemous?
I was thinking, earlier, about going back in time and inventing the pulley, explaining how it works to them with “Pull up by pulling down, have gravity on your side.” Then it occurred to me that the theory of gravity is relatively new, so I began to wonder, “How did they refer to gravity before they had a word for it?”
Think about it… gravity is such an important concept to us these days, but how did they refer to it before Newton came up with his theory of gravity?
What do you call a woman who has a lot of sex? Her name.
GOD FUCKING YES, that.

Sorry for the color, but this HAS to be on my blog.
I Could Not Pass This Without Reblogging.
Fucking Hell to the fucking YES!
“Real men don’t rape.” is just about the most mazing thing ever
Interesting thing to note: in nudist resorts, rape and other sex offenses are practically nonexistent. Fascinating how with everyone running around naked, nobody feels the need to rape.
Others who have noticed this trend have even gone so far as to say rape is a problem only among those who wear clothing. I’m not sure if the evidence says THAT much yet, but it’s still fairly interesting.
Among the many flaws in the logic of Christianity and related faiths is one I just thought of: if humans are born sinners, somehow irrevocably evil, then from where comes love and compassion? If their doctrine was right, we would all be fucking, stealing, murdering, and other nasty things all the time. There would be no love, no compassion, no civilization, even. We would be like the worst demons in the Buffy universe, living only for evil.
So much for THAT bullshit, then.
1. Anjelica Huston was 40 when she played Morticia. Considering that it’s very hard for women over 40 (who aren’t A-listers) to get lead parts, that’s already a milestone. But she’s also sexy. Incredibly sexy. Yes, she’s playing the mother of a pair of preteens, but she appears immaculately (and eerily) beautiful in every scene she’s in. How often do we see a mother character who is genuinely sexy?
2. Morticia and Gomez Addams are famously in love with each other. What set the 1960s series apart from all other sitcoms was that this was a married couple who were crazy about each other, instead of fighting. In the film, this tradition of their great love affair continues. There are no mother-in-law jokes, both take responsibility in raising the children, and have a very healthy sex life. So many stories have the love story end at marriage, or have the couple grow to loathe each other over time. Just think of it - a loving marriage was groundbreaking.
3. Addams Family Values explicitly challenges conformist WASPs at the Summer Camp that Wednesday and Pugsley stay at. The siblings absolutely refuse to compromise themselves and pretend to be happy or to enjoy sickeningly sappy things (like Annie the musical). The camp counsellors show favouritism to the traditionally attractive blonde white rich kids, and it’s made quite obvious how hateful and hypocritical they really are. At the end of the movie, Wednesday and the other “outcasts” (meaning everyone remotely considered a minority) deliberately sabotage the counsellors’ tremendously racist Thanksgiving play by symbolically enacting revenge for the genocide that Native Americans suffered at the hands of white people.
4. Despite the Addamses having both a boy and a girl child (at least in the first film), it is the girl that gets the good parts. That doesn’t happen very often at all - other examples of media that have a male and female sibling almost always emphasize the brother. Christina Ricci’s sarcastic and deadpan portrayal of Wednesday is one of the highlights of an already perfectly cast set of films. It contrasts sharply with the cheerful Wednesday from the TV version, but I can’t be the only one longing for more sardonic brunette girls in family movies…who aren’t the villains.
5. The climax of The Addams Family seemingly has a damsel-in-distress situation…except that it’s been turned on its head. Morticia…enjoys…being tied up and tortured. Yep kiddies, here’s your first introduction to bondage and BDSM! It’s played for laughs of course, as it always is, but notice that when Gomez and Morticia discuss her predicament, it’s with absolute passion. Their kinkiness is just another aspect of their already healthy sex life. And in the end, the damsel-in-distress isn’t really in distress at all! Sure, she needed to be untied, but Morticia was definitely not in any danger.
things ppl say that alerts you to them being the actual worst:
- john was my favourite beatle
- abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems
- i’m not a racist i hate all races equally
- disliking someone because of their political affiliation is ridiculous
- but if you think abou it stereotypes do exist for a reason
- god, can you believe people on welfare own iphones
I know several people like this.
“abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems” One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong…
