My name's Jamie. Here's a quote that I like: “The first and simplest emotion which we discover in the human mind, is curiosity.” -Edmund Burke

CNN and their Brilliant Ideas [FIXED]

Know what’s great?
Neither of the words matter. The more offended you try to get over a word, the more power you give it. Words only have the meaning and power we give them. There have been many slurs in history, and apathy defeats them. When the Spanish came to America, they faced the slur “Spic.” The Irish were called “Micks.” The Asians arriving in America were called “Chinks.” These slurs died out through apathy and stripping the words of their perceived power. (After all, they’re just symbols and corresponding sounds, their meaning is all in your head and you have total control over that.)
By using a word freely and loosely, its semantic potency is diluted. In other words: get over it, and the problem won’t exist.
CNN isn’t a news network but a pillar of American schemata reinforcement. Anyone else see their parallel to Fox News? Both reinforce prevailing schemata, though choose different schemata, by only perceiving news through this schemata.

yoga pants are the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I never want to wear normal pants again but it seems like the major two things people think of people who wear yoga pants are

1) “trashy” or
2) dat butt hot

and I don’t know what to do but I can’t be happy in jeans so I guess I shouldn’t care if people look at my butt or not.

also there’s nothing wrong with butts. boo sexualization.

Yoga pants were designed to be very flexible, comfortable, and allow air and moisture exchange through it. They’re actually better on the body than denim or nylon. They’re better on your skin and circulation. (There’s a reason a lot of sci-fi writers have their characters in essentially yoga-pants-material flightsuits.)

Yoga pants themselves are never trashy. Wearing clothes that don’t fit is trashy. If you’re healthy, exercise, or at least in shape, wearing form-fitting clothes cannot look bad. The healthy human form is the standard for beauty.

You’re right, there’s nothing wrong with butts. There’s nothing wrong with people liking them, or not liking them, either. You shouldn’t let it bother you, because more likely than not, most of what’s bothering you is all in your head.

That said, if I had a flightsuit made out of that material, I’d totally wear it all the time.
