Is my ex-boyfriend a phobia?




#2025874 The Last Jedi is better than A New Hope

Posted by Padme on 07 July 2018 - 02:25 AM

I really enjoyed the last Jedi for the deeper issues it attempted to tackle like nature vs nurture, what responsibility a parent should take for their child’s actions as an adult, which I felt it went deeper on than other Star Wars movies. I thought it was dismissed by a lot of people because it waSnT stAR wArs but I end up hearing that every SW movie is the same from those same people who complain about TFA.

Was it perfect? No.
I really didn’t like some of the side plot BS.
I like Rian and his vision but it felt like it was forcefullly moving away from certain areas that JJ was focusing on which took me out of some parts.
So I am looking forward to his own trilogy of films to see him really flex. I expect a lot.

People romanticize older films when you know if this same film came out now people wouldn’t praise it as much. I just accept this as part of being a part of this fandom.

I also respect what you’re saying about people’s unceasing need to post just for posting. If you have nothing to say besides you haven’t seen them... however I don’t respect saying TFA is the worst, I think I was tasked with rebooting a franchise that Disney paid a lot for, the previous reboot was disliked, and wasn’t going to be a one off. Without TFA you wouldn’t have your last Jedi so it is very necessary. I think there was fan service but for what it needed to be it did the job well. I can only imagine the laundry list JJ was handed that the movie had to include. I do imagine what it would of been had Carrie, Harrison and Mark not returned

Solo (which I enjoyed) is the worst to me but that could be since it is still fresh in my mind


#2025872 Morbid Shit You Do

Posted by Padme on 07 July 2018 - 02:12 AM

I feel sad for you now.


Is the morbid shit you do feeling bad for people?
This is a topic to discuss morbid things not baptize Coops with more pity that she never asked for.

Advanced planning is a really smart thing to do. My Dad is fifty and has his entire funeral already planned out and paid for. A lot of people leave their love ones in great distress when they’re gone because of no planning. Obviously not everyone has the opportunity or forethought for this.


To add to this thread:
I also have a few letters for people I care for since I used to travel a lot and it seemed sensible but definitely morbid
When I was a child I used to write letters to my cousin who died from meningitis then I’d leave them under my pillow since I thought that was how the mail service to Heaven worked (is this morbid idk?)
When someone is murdered in shows I watch I frequently think that same thing is going to happen to me
Since I will younger I’ve had a will for my Harry Potter paraphernalia, nothing else just my HP stuff


#2025694 How privileged are you?!

Posted by Padme on 30 June 2018 - 02:04 PM

I got 32/100 which says I'm not privileged. 

 

"You're not privileged at all. You grew up with an intersectional, complicated identity, and life never let you forget it. You've had your fair share of struggles, and you've worked hard to overcome them. We do not live in an ideal world and you had to learn that the hard way. It is not your responsibility to educate those with more advantages than you, but if you decide you want to, go ahead and send them this quiz. Hopefully it will help."

 

This is not the score I was expecting, nor the score I feel is representational of the privilege I have. 

Did I grow up poor? For a lot of it, yes I did. There were many times one of my parents stole my piggy bank money to buy herself cigarettes and then send us to bed hungry because she would feed her addiction over buying a loaf of bread & milk. I've been raped. My parents are divorced. I suffer from mental illness but I'm a middle class, white woman who as an adult has it relatively easy. If I were to guess my 'privilege' before I took this quiz it would have placed in the 70's as a random guess and that was a conservative guess on my end. 

 

As a side note, gender confirmation surgery in Canada is a free process for people who qualify. It is not an easy process or fast as you have to be on hormones for a certain period of time, get an okay from a couple doctors, usually travel across country to the doctors who will perform the surgery. We aren't the only country to cover this cost but just an aside as I saw this come up earlier. 




#2024587 Marijuana Legalization

Posted by Padme on 06 June 2018 - 06:27 PM

Canada is set to be the first G7 nation to legalize marijuana... this is equivocal to when alcohol ended many decades ago. 

Medical marijuana has been federally legal in Canada for quite a while now with sources coming from licensed producers.

This emerging industry is something unlike we have seen on this scale with it projected to topple alcohol sales in our country. 

 

Different provinces are taking to it differently and on a whole the entire country is being looked to by other nations as a blueprint for their own legalization plans. 

Canada already exports marijuana to a number of nations with deals involving Australia, Germany, Italy, Greece and more.

 

 

So, this begs the question(s):

 

How do YOU feel about the taboo around weed lifting?

How is it perceived where you live? 

Do you think it should be legal?
