DEAL WITH IT!

Can everyone just back off of Shailene for a minute? So maybe she doesn’t quite understand feminism and what she said was a little or lot off mark. Perhaps she wasn’t able to get her point across properly, I know I find it hard to explain quite complex ideologies like feminism sometimes. At times I’ll explain the same point three times until I’m sure I’ve explained it in a way that can leave no doubt that the person I’m talking to knows what I mean, not that they agree but at least understand what I’m saying. Furthermore just a point, this is press junket stuff, a tour that lasts forever and most actors get tired during, it’s a long process of traveling and so on and I know when I’m tired my brain can’t think straight, I was so tired I left my phone on the train once.
I know you’re probably thinking, “yeah but the point is not her being inarticulate about her opinion but that she doesn’t understand it at all”. Well ok fine I get that but does that give you the right to hurl abuse around calling her dumb and shitty and telling her she needs to sit down and shut up? Not really. Feminism isn’t a topic I’m well versed in, these things take education and to some extent an interest, I haven’t ever been particularly involved in activism to do with feminism so I don’t pretend to understand it. Perhaps Shailene hasn’t taken a hand in it either but wouldn’t it seem rude if she ignored the question? You’d hate her for that too, or maybe if she’d have said “I don’t really understand the ideas and practices of feminism and the activism behind it”, you’d call her stupid. You shouldn’t shun or look down on someone for not knowing something, all of you who are judging her had to learn about feminism at some point, you weren’t born understanding it and neither was Shailene, she’s no different.

All I’m trying to say is there are worse flubs she could make and in the grand scheme of things, needing to learn a little more on a subject is never a bad thing. Don’t tear someone down for an inoffensive, non antagonistic, misguided comment by someone who is still learning. Be nicer to people for goodness sake it wouldn’t kill you.

Tobias’ tattoos?

I know the Candor symbol is the scales. In the movie Tobias has that really angular figure holding scales as his Candor tattoo, yet in certain book releases you got temporary tattoos of the factions and Candor’s was just scales, not the person holding them. The erudite eye isn’t the venn diagram looking eye either like the movie tattoo. They both seem pretty official so if you were getting the faction symbols as tattoos which Candor one would you get?

Aptitude test

So how accurate do you think the test on the official website is? I can see how certain answers would lead to a certain faction and therefore it could be possible to rig it. I answered honestly though and got Amity. I’m sort of surprised and sort of not. I’m a Gryffindor as well and I feel like that possibly doesn’t gel? I’m more of a Neville, I’m only badass when it calls for
It I don’t just jump straight in and I hate conflict.

I don’t know I just want to know if you think it’s a good test.

I like how sweden just decided one day that gender is bull so they got a gender neutral pronoun and stopped separating boy clothes and girl clothes and have pictures of spiderman pushing a baby stroller in a toy magazine why isn’t every…

Toys r us are bringing in gender neutral advertising when the new season stuff comes in so we’re getting there slowly
