know what scopophobia is?
- a pathological fear of being seen/watched/drawing attention to yourself in any way, and the judgement/ridicule you feel is attached to it
know what scopophobia ISN’T?
- a fear of eyes.
know what you should be tagging with #scopophobia?
- probably nothing. no static 2-dimensional image on the internet could even come close to evoking the kind of anxiety that comes with being around real live people looking at you and watching you and paying attention to you in a real live public setting. unless its a text post or video that discusses at length someone’s actual experiences dealing with scopophobia that could be uncomfortable or triggering to others who share the condition, i SERIOUSLY DOUBT you’ll find a situation where tagging it is appropriate.
know what you SHOULDN’T be tagging with #scopophobia?
- basically everything that you’re tagging with scopophobia
if you feel deeply unsettled seeing images of eyeballs, or a photo of a person looking at the camera, or anything of that sort, you probably have something entirely different instead of/in addition to scopophobia, such as ommetaphobia (fear of eyes).
this probably sounds a lot angrier than i intended but i am getting really goddamn tired of people mistakenly tagging selfies with scopophobia without even bothering to find out what it actually is? it just feels kind of trivializing to those of us who cant actually function like humans in public without having panic attacks because we feel like the whole world is scrutinizing our every word and action
NOBODY UNDERSTANDS THIS LMFAO
hisokas literally 28 wwhys he still fuckin around like this. doesnt he have taxes to file or a mortgage to pay or ssomething
a very classy “up yours”
This right here. This is why we need to make this movie a commercial success even if some of us find the story formulaic. If it underperforms or outright fails, it might be a long time before we see a film like it again. If it all.
Please watch it please
The last movie i remember with a Mexican protag that was animated was Los tres caballeros from 1987
And even THAT doesn’t really count
This is a fascinating article which explains why tumblr users have mostly been uninterested in a long-term systematic organized child abuse ring getting ignored by the police, why many Republicans don’t seem to care about global warming, and many other things, and does so brilliantly. I am impressed. I would say I am convinced, but I already believed this, I just thought it was a particularly good exploration of the topic.
for those of you who are still upset by that dog episode in fma; take comfort in knowing shou tucker went to hell
My favorite part about this is that out of all the characters who died, including the main villains (one of which tried sacrifice two countries in order to become god) Shou Tucker is the ONLY ONE arakawa sent to hell
it really bugs me when people are like “wow this is NOT a kid’s show!” as if kids have no capacity to process upsetting or deep or meaningful content, and as if all content for children should be as vapid and safe as possible
u dont always need to dig a nice hole
sometimes nature gives u nice hole all by its own
"You’re so innocent!"
You’d think so, wouldn’t you…
