I think this generation is far too dependent on cell phones. I have friends who will constantly be on theirs, whether they’re sitting in class, in the shower (yes, the shower), and even in the company of other friends. I think when you are around your friends and family you should appreciate your time with them, and unless it’s a dire emergency, put your damn phone away- it’s rude! I love my phone, don’t get me wrong. But I also know when to put it down.

So this obsession with coming off edgy; lets talk about Satanism.
Warning: I exercise my sailor tongue a few times.
Definition time: “symbol” means: “a thing that represents or stands for something else, esp. a material object representing something abstract”.
 What do you want to represent?
Sulphur:
‘Sulphur’ is a symbol that’s used for, well, theatrics. We’re not a stoic (maybe sometimes) group of people, and it doesn’t take a skilled brain to connect the dots: symbols like that cause a stir. Sulphur is related to the imagined smell of hell (fun rhymes to teach your kids) but… Satanists don’t believe in hell! :D Who does? People who probably have incorrect views on what our beliefs are, and will get jumpy when we pull out symbols. It’s not productive, but when you can’t make people change their mind, you might as well play off what they give you.
It’s an inside joke.
It’s a little dorky when non-Satanists use this because…
You think it’s some vital image to represent how satanic you are, when it’s not—you should know this.
Why are you even wearing things you don’t get? Unless sulfur is your favorite symbol (I like it a lot, too) please don’t label it with “Satanism”.
Courteously of the FAQ on the official website: “It is the alchemical symbol for sulphur. The stench produced when this substance burned has long been associated with the infernal regions. Dr. LaVey used it as a spooky decoration and it has no other significance despite some hilarious interpretations by evangelical Christians.”
 “666” also has the same purpose as sulphur, with even less importance. it scares Christians and some of us are that apathetic- end of story. I’m not saying that only Satanist can use these, but it’s kind of like those pervasive/racist/rude/politically incorrect slang names you and your friends give to each other. Any non-Satanist can flash these, but there’s a huge difference between being playful and taking them so seriously that you start shitting bricks.
The inverted cross:
Anyone can tell you WHY this is a big no-no, but for shits and giggles, I will.
This is a Christian symbol. It was used when St. Peter was crucified, and is a testament to his adoration of Christ’s crucifixion. It has nothing to do with Hell, Satan, or anything else ‘demonic’—Satanism isn’t even about demonic happenings, so I want to rip my hair out even more when I see those re-bloged pictures of the evil kittens with the black inverted cross on their forehead tagged, “satanism”, “satanic”, “demonic”, “possessed.”
Christ on a fucking cracker.
Not even close, people.
I know it seems like it would take on the similar meaning of the inverted star, but it does not.
This is the one time that I defend Christian based groups because the way they would feel, is how I feel when the Baphomet is used so lightly as decoration. 
The Sigil Baphomet:
The baphomet is the symbol for Satanism. The Hebrew around the goat on the inner circle translate into “Uroboros”, “Leviathan”; infinity, wholeness. It’s the mythological name of a serpent (which has been used as imagery in the past) eating its own tail. This serpent has been used in many stories and beliefs. Hint: it’s associated with ‘Lucifer’ when he disguised himself to Eve at the Tree of Knowledge. And in Satanism, the idea of being self-sufficient, wise, and understanding of our true nature is what we’re all about. The symbolism for snakes also appears in cultures such as Japan, where it represents, that same, what was defined earlier.  
The Goat of Mendes, The Goat of a Thousand Young, The Black Goat, The Judas Goat, and The Scapegoat, is this famous goat head. Quote from the satanic Bible, “In Satanism the pentagram is also used, but since Satanism represents the carnal instincts of man, or the opposite of spiritual nature, the pentagram is inverted to perfectly accommodate the head of the goat – its horns, representing duality, thrust upwards in defiance; the other three points inverted, or the trinity denied.”
The goat represents “sinful”, animalistic, nature that many groups such as Christianity try to crop us out of; Satanists recognize ourselves as animals.
The pentagon that LaVey was referring to, is a very popular image; a man with his legs and arms spread to create the shape of a star. The top point in that original image represents spirituality, and as Satanists, we naturally invert that due to our opposing beliefs of what it commonly means to be “spiritual” and the guidelines that go along with that..
Take the Sigil of Baphomet seriously.
Before you wear any symbols, please take some time to research.
Before you call yourself something, please take some time to research.
Before you do anything, please take some time to research if you don’t already know.
I know we all have such busy lives, but if you have time to go to the mall, buy a shirt, take a picture, post it online: you have time to research and find out what it means.
I’m getting tired of people misinterpreting it and influencing the misinterpretation of others. Satanism is not a style; it means something. I don’t care how cool the symbols are or how bad-ass it makes you look to display them: stop empty posturing.

And if you are a “Theistic Satanist” don’t use the symbols meant for an Atheist group, and don’t call yourself a Satanist. “Satanism” was a term that Anton LaVey titled his philosophy and when you use that name and link it to the description of someone who believes and worships demons, Satan, and other mythical things, you are pushing the negative stereotype along for the rest of us who do not. (I cross out “theistic” because in Satanism, there is no worship going on. If you worship the devil, you would most likely be “Leviathan”—yes, I mentioned that earlier. Uroboros plays a part in many things, and yes: people do share common ground, but that des not make us the same. Hey I’ve got an idea! Go fucking research.) 
Please find the correct terms for yourself and stop being so thoughtless.
C’mon, you’re on the internet all day googling the answers to your math homework, anyway. Just open another tab. It’s that easy.
I hope everyone’s having a decent fucking day.
Research.

the-unpopular-opinions:

I think the first few seasons of Family Guy were the best. Most of those episodes had all the weird random stuff we love about the show, PLUS some real heart. Like the episode where Peter gets jealous because Lois gets attention from men while performing at his basement bar and at the end he learns to not take his wife for advantage, the episode where the family inherits Lois’s aunt’s mansion and Peter gets all snooty but at the end realizes that money isn’t everything. Now most of the episodes are 30 minutes of complete wacky random crap, don’t get me wrong I still like the show (except for constant animated violence and death), but the only ones I can think of like that recently are the episodes where Stewie’s friend has cancer and his parents won’t treat him and the episode where Stewie and Brian are locked in the bank vault (I’m sure there more, but not many). I feel like with the older episodes, except for the talking baby and dog, Family Guy could’ve been a real life live-action family sitcom, not saying that it should’ve been, just that it had that “at the end, everybody learns a heartfelt lesson” thing.

I HATE THE TERM, POC
First of all, it’s offensive. It’s just “coloured people” flipped to make it sound less bad. (OMG tumblr, your political correctness enlightens me).
Second of all, white is also a colour. Black absorbs colour and is the absence of colour. The definition/metaphor/analogy falls flat. 
Third of all, we don’t all live in AMURICA or EUROPE or AUSTRALIA (I am ethnically Mongol from Mongolia) to use that fucking word. 
Fourth of all (rule of three broken), it lumps variety of cultures (each with its own beauty and uniqueness) into a disgusting word.
Besides, you idiots obviously wouldn’t know the difference between:
'POC' people like: Yanomami, Bantu and Yolŋu and how they live or whether Mordvins, Huron, Bunyoro and Magyars are all just white peeps with the same culture. (Hint hint, something’s a bit off in that statement)
Call us by our names (Kan is Laotian) or by our ethnicity (A well-written Laotian character in American media has finally been introduced for the first time in history) or where we came from (The character we see comes from Laos). It’s not that hard is it?
I’m really tired of seeing races and ethnicity thrown around like a toy (WE NEED MORE POCs in the medias LAWLZ) and dragging all kinds of people into your whatever fantasy land. 
I understand your lust for a Tongan-British Doctor Who or a Huron-Yupik Dean and Sam Winchester or something idk.
I thoroughly apologize for not explaining this better. You are totally allowed to “destroy” my arguments with exclamation marks and sarcastic remarks.
