Your name is THE PIG IN MINECRAFT, though people commonly call you PIG or PIGSTER.
You have a number of INTERESTS, including HARRY POTTER, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, DOCTOR WHO, and, obviously, HOMESTUCK and MINECRAFT.
You like to program computers, but you are NOT VERY GOOD AT IT, a fact which happens to also be true of JOHN EGBERT.
You try to tag your Homestuck posts with “#Homestuck”, so that people can block them with TUMBLR SAVIOR or XKIT. However, you guess that anyone against Homestuck enough to block it would probably have left as soon as they saw your blog description written as if it had been addressed to yourself.
You claim to own the world's largest collection of RED SOCK FLUFF.
Your URL is ookiePigster, and you tend to speak in a manner which is somewhat formal and pedantic; though you hope it is not excessively so.
omfg so today I saw a man and a woman holding hands in public, i mean i don’t have anything against heterosexuality but don’t flaunt it in front of me, think of the kids omfg
I don’t have anything against it either. I really don’t. My best friend is straight, but like, keep it in the bedroom you know?
the fact that there have been no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:
Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.
As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.
This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.
So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.
In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.
Seemed a good day to reblog this.
