Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.
Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid? Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?
1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.” It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.
The nail. It is hit on the head.
Also ‘like’ is a very clever way to refer to something. ‘They said’ is much more forceful and implies accuracy whereas ‘they were like’ ‘it was like’ ‘i was like’ allows you some leeway in the interpretation.
WHEN U TRYNA TAKE A PILL AND IT TOUCHES YA TOUNGE AND U TASTE IT
You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.
imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun
I had the amazing opportunity to visit Stonehenge this past year and ya know what!?
IT IS PRETTY FUCKING AMAZING!!!
Ancient History is fascinating don’t even
as someone who’s been dragged on countless vacations I didn’t want to go on, I have to say you really can’t force someone to be interested in something they just don’t care about
especially as a kid, I didn’t care about burial mounds or ancient forests or national monuments- now, I’m much more of a history buff, but it simply wasn’t appealing to me at the time
and let me tell you, being somewhere you don’t want to be, with people you don’t want to be with, out in the hot sun, usually trekking to yet another ancient thingamabob that you don’t give a shit about- it’s miserable.
so. no. if you don’t want your travel money to be wasted, don’t bring the kid, go somewhere that actually has appeal to the whole family, or save it for a future journey that they’ll actually be able to appreciate
THOU = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE FUCKING DOING SOMETHING.
THEE = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE HAVING SOMETHING FUCKING DONE TO YOU.
THY = “YOUR” AND “YOURS” WHEN THE THING YOU OWN BEGINS WITH A FUCKING CONSONANT.
THINE = “YOUR” AND “YOURS” WHEN THE THING YOU OWN BEGINS WITH A FUCKING VOWEL.
IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE SHITTY EARLY MODERN ENGLISH TEXT POSTS, DO IT RIGHT.

This is a little manga I wrote to show how a girl’s efforts to make someone hurting smile ends up revealing a similar compassion from the very boy she was trying to comfort. It shows how a little kindness can sometimes seem pointless but it can be contagious and turn around to help the person giving it more than the one receiving it.
