A lot of these are mainly just the first ones that come to mind,
Q:Are you trying to kill me? Could you please post a warning immediately after your Natalie Dormer reblogs so while I'm scrolling down through my dash I have a moment to stop and mentally prepare myself. It's like staring into the vortex. The shock can break one's mind. Jeepers. Creepers. (but seriously don't. i kinda like it)
I apologize for nothing.
Q:Howdy! Could you please explain what the Wil Wheaton fiasco is about, because I hadn't heard anything about it until seeing you reblog something about it.
Yeah. I don’t follow him (dude is a Dodgers fan) so I had to go look it up before I reblogged that, I mainly was going for the point about tone policing. Anyway.
The root of it is this: he reblogged this photoset of a turkey twerking. Which, y’know, debatable if it’s actually as mindblowingly funny as he says it is. Someone sent him a very polite fanmail about it, not asking him to take it down or anything, just saying that the post didn’t sit right with them. And his response was to make it into a post (at least leaving out the sender’s url) and say “If The Internet could stop making everything about SUPER SERIOUS THINGS THAT ARE SERIOUS for one fucking second, that would be great.”
Which is basically a dick thing to do, especially from Ensign Wil “Don’t be a dick” Wheaton, because it was a polite message, he could have just ignored it, his response just really gives a rallying point for a lot of people to complain about how they think “social justice warriors” are such an awful thing (really, don’t read the notes on his post), and it’s just disappointing. I understand that Wheaton, along with some other people I’ve seen online, do things that they think are going to make the world better, and some of them do, but they’re really awful about taking even slight criticism, and I think that does more harm than they realize.
I was more of a Queen fan than the Who, I’d say. But they obviously have some good songs- I mean, who doesn’t love “Behind Blue Eyes”?

Q:Are you into men as well? What do you mean depends on the guy? (Diff person but curious)
Y’know, that’s a difficult question to answer. I mean, a few years ago, it would have been a flat no. I think that being on Tumblr has opened me up more to things, though, and there are definitely some guys who, given the opportunity, I’d probably fool around with. So it basically means it would be if it was one of those particular guys, I guess.
Q:Would you like it if a guy sent you a nude?
It depends on the guy, I guess.
Q:Do you prefer nerds or nudes?
Q:Which is your favorite blog that includes either "sith" or "lordette"? I'm asking for a friend...
Hmm. I keep thinking this one over, and, y’know, I feel like there’s one just lingering around the edge of my brain. But I’m not sure. I guess none come to mind. Sorry Amy- I mean anon! Pass on my apologies to your friend!
(No, but really, sithlordette is awesome, you guys should be following her.)
Q:In your humble and personal opinion, which is better: To fall in love, or to fall in lust?
Personally? I’d say to fall in love. I mean, both is best, especially if it’s requited, but if there’s only one, I’d pick love. Because love is a lot more easily fed, I think, when you’re tired or sick or far away from each other, or any of the other circumstances where lust is difficult to sate.
But they’re both awesome.
Q:F***, Kill, Marry: Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Dormer, Gemma Arterton?
Oh dammit. Dammit dammit dammit. Uh, crap, okay, got to think about this one.
Seriously, I’ve started typing this about six times and keep changing my mind. Okay. Um… Marry Gemma Arterton. Fuck Natalie Dormer. Kill Scarlett Johansson except plot an escape to let it seem like Jenn rescued her, and everyone wins. (Also, give Natalie Dormer Jenn’s phone number before she leaves.)
Q:If you know that I know that they know that you know that I know and that's a no-no. What to they know that we don't know?
Well, y’know, can we know what they know that we don’t know? No. If it was known, we’d know it. So we know what they show and we go slow on what we don’t know.
Q:Oh I know the question. But what we don't know is if you know... That they know, knowing we know... Ya-know?
Oh, no- I know they know and know you know. But now you know I know they know you know- but the idea they know you know I know they know you know? That’s a no-no.
Q:What is the question that results in 42(non mathematical)?
Well, it’s the question, the great question of LIfe, the Universe, and Everything.
I mean, really, anon, you don’t know? That’s just mildly embarrassing.
Q:That's just life though, nerds will never fit in, and jocks will always take priority, the funny thing about those terms though is that there will never be a "balance" one side will always be the outcast that will have to conform, and the other will not because they are the head...
I dunno, anon, I’ve never really been a fan of the “that’s just the way it is” defense.
I mean, I’m not saying I expect every movie to have the nerd fall in love with the girl in the end. I’m just saying that it was frustrating to me. I mean, the general message of the movie is pretty much accepted that “underneath our stereotypes, we aren’t that different,” so it’s just a little disappointing to see how it just resettles into those stereotypes in the end- the rich girl falls for the bad boy, the strange girl gets a makeover to woo the jock, and the nerd gets homework. And there are better movies that take on the topic in a more even-handed way now, but as a kid who had already figured out he was weird to his classmates in elementary school, it would have been nice to have someone tell me that it was okay to be weird.
Q:Have you seen this article? I always like reading your thoughts on things and would love to see you tear this article a new one as I can't even put my thoughts together enough (due to anger) to comment. Link (remove spaces): mattforney. com/2013/09/16/ the-case-against-female-self-esteem/
Honestly, that guy is just such a toxic, irredeemable piece of shit, I don’t think it even deserves the attention. I don’t know if he thinks he’s trolling, if he thinks he’s posting absurd shit for linkbait, or if he actually believes it. (The bits I saw in his Twitter on his sidebar make me think he might actually buy into the bullshit he spews, which is, frankly, fucking terrifying.) But it’s hard to see anything possibly redeemable about that sort of person, except possibly in terms of organ donation.
I really, really recommend people do not read that article. It’s fucking awful.
