Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
also, having spoken with both parents about the shitshow that is Lucy, we are all in full agreement that Luc Besson and the writers did absolutely zero research on Taiwan and that the movie is not worth our time or money.
like dad told me: they didn’t realize that Taiwan is one of the safest places in the world, below Sweden?
and the look on mom’s face was laugh-out-loud hilarious.
I hope to hell this movie tanks in Taiwan, if not everywhere.
#why I will never watch lucy#why you shouldn’t support lucy#because fuck luc besson and the creators for depicting my ancrestral homeland as a crime-ridden hellhole#and backdrop for your white heroine#all so she can murder Asian guys and be in the right because of authorial fiat#at least they’re not running the you speak English BS ad anymore#but they should be ashamed for having that scene in the movie#because it’s fucking ridiculous#that’s like being in the US and shooting someone in the head for not speaking Mandarin#except if Lucy shot the guy in the head she would be all over the news for it#because GUN CONTROL IS A THING over in Taiwan#if she’s so goddamn smart and superpowered#why didn’t she realize that she’d draw attention to herself that way#OH WAIT#THIS IS A MOVIE THAT COULDN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT EVEN LOOKING AT THE WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON TAIWAN#clearly my expectations are way too high here (via isanah)
I’m so fucking mad about this movie.
Because when I first heard “ScarJo gets superpowers” it sounded awesome.
But then everything about it was awful and racist and fucked up.
My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond
"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.
This is a very good point.
