Where the hell are Joe Hart and Sugar Motta in Glee?
I mean, even The Bold and the Beautiful makes a plot about losing a character, even having a character shot and killed and buried, and then later, when they need her back after all, it’s revealed that she was never dead and was magically saved through an underground tunnel from the grave. That’s continuance, right there.
But even that kind of plotting would be too much for Glee, it seems. Glee seems to just strategically “forget” that the characters ever existed at all, and trust that the watchers have suffered the same kind of amnesia…
So, 19th of march is the national day of equality in Finland, and in honor of that, the new bill petition for allowing gay marriage opened for signing at midnight. Now, 22 hours later, the petition has been signed by over 2% of all Finns that are entitled to vote. That means over 100 000 names collected in a single day - and these are only the online signings, which means that if all the names collected on the streets were included, the number would be much higher. (The number of names needed for the government to have to take it into account is 50 000 - and they give you six months to collect that. It seems a bit of an overkill, to be honest.)
Finnish government might be struggling with accepting gay marriage, but the people don’t seem to be. It’s pretty awesome to witness!
Happy equality day, everyone! :)
Deep-Sea Spaceport: So, the legal affairs committee of Finland just decided -
that marriage equality is an issue they don’t want to handle, and voted against it. (One of the biggest parties who has promised to support it voted against it, btw.) Anyway, there is a thing in Finland where normal people can introduce bills the parliament has to take into…
Okay, all you Finnish peeps, the bill proposal is now up for signing, so please go and do it! It’s been 45 minutes and there are already 1500 names, and it’s pretty awesome but not enough. Please go and add yours, so that maybe everyone will be allowed to get married and be treated the same way! And you non- Finnish citizens who see this, sadly you are not allowed to sign this, but you can spread the info if you want, so that maybe more Finns will see it! ;)
that marriage equality is an issue they don’t want to handle, and voted against it. (One of the biggest parties who has promised to support it voted against it, btw.) Anyway, there is a thing in Finland where normal people can introduce bills the parliament has to take into consideration, if 50.000 people sign it.. And they started advertising on of those today, and the facebook page of that bill has gotten 24.000 likes in about 12 hours, and more likes are coming approximately one per second.. And mind you, Finland is still a small country with only 5 million people, so it’s a big number. I think, even though the government is still living in another century, the people of Finland want the change, and it’s awesome to watch it happen! I hope the parliament will handle the issue better, when they see how important this issue is for the people who they are supposed to represent. So, if you want to show your support for the Finnish people also getting their equal human rights, you should go and like this:
I mean, everyone is complaining that Edward’s 100 year old devotion for teenage Bella is freaky, but that’s nothing to the werewolves’ imprinting! Just think about it people!
I’m not even saying it’s bad for the werevolves who imprint because they don’t seem to be suffering too much, like, they just love someone very much, even though not having a choice kinda sucks too. But just think about the girls! The guys come to them like “Hi, my name’s X, oh, by the way, I will love you forever till the day I die.” The girl might not even know the guy, or they might be fucking infants, or they might be old friends, but now suddenly this guy just informs you that you are literal centre of the universe for him from now on.
The girl has no choice in the matter, whether the guy loves her or not. There is literally nothing she can do to make the guy fall out of love with her, because she is IT for now on, in a completely other level than normal people desperately in love, because there isn’t going to be anybody else they could ever even consider besides her.There is no way she can get him to resent her, or reason with him so that he could go find something else in his life.
So the girl is left with two options, either to love this guy or at least like him enough to spend time with him, or totally, irreparably break the guy. It’s like the guy says “So, you don’t know me, but you are my world. So here’s the deal, you can either love me or take this knife and blunge it through my heart.” That is a fucking unfair situation!!! There is probably literally nothing worse than a guy you don’t really care about saying that they will die if you don’t take them in.
But, the werewolves say, of course the girl wants to be with the guy, because who could resist such strong love. But you have to understand, that the girl does NOT feel the effects of the imprinting. They can feel that this guy loves them, but it does not affect their own emotions or thinking. Have you ever been in a situation where a guy tells you after one date that they love you? I have, and that was like the most horrible, discusting, awkward and scary thing I’ve ever heard. And he was just being dramatic, but these guys are like for real. It’s really honestly sick.
And, like, it’s not only romantic love in Twilight, they can be whatever the girl needs in their life, right? So it’s not that sick! But the fact remains, that you need to stand this person worshipping the ground you walk on for the rest of your life unless you want to hurt him worse than death (literally what they say in Twilight it feels like to lose the person you have imprinted on).You’d have to stand this person in your life, doing whatever he possibly can to make you feel happy, and that sounds so suffocating, even if I sincerely loved the guy.
And I cannot figure out anything more scary than a person who will never be unable to not love you, no matter what you will say or do. You could, like, kill that guys parents or children and he would still love you because he can’t not. Honestly, twisted. Sick. Horrible.
I’d take Edwards brooding any day. At least he has the theoretical possibility to fall out of love with me and find someone else. Even though, lets face it, Edward’s love for Bella is not really much more healthy than the imprinting when you get down to it.
