About
Hello my freaky little darlings! Here you have stumbled upon the blog of Rebecca St. Marie (pen name). You can call me Rebecca or Saint. Most of my internet peeps call me Saint.
Though a wide variety of lovely fandoms parade their way across my blog, the main posts you will see here will reference Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Glee, Sherlock, The Avengers, Starkid, Supernatural, The Mortal Instruments, and, of course, my fandom home, Maximum Ride.
This is also the blog a bisexual feminist and non-denominational renegade Christian, so be prepared to be educated. :P
I'm an Early Childhood Education/Creative Writing dual major who will sometimes use this blog to display my writing as well as my life and times with my live-in protege, Zia, age 8, the sassiest little ball of childhood wonder you will ever meet.
Oh, and if a little black-winged sarcastic bird kid pops in, that;s just Fang. Personal assistant/slave. Don't mind him. He only bites on Thursdays.

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY || OFFICIAL TRAILER

You’re fucking joking

ewwwwwww

Look how they tried to make this abusive piece of shit sexy. 

Ugh.

After this shit is released, expect a flood of expecting subs who don’t know that it’s abuse and more fake Doms preying on them. 

Yep. A flood of defensive posts, a flood of drama, a flood of exuberant basement dwelling shitdicks given new fuel in their predation. A flood of fucked up shit all around, a flood of teenaged girls who will grow up romanticizing this sort of thing.
Yaaay.

Fuck. Like I know the book is trash. I know the former beta, back when it was just online fanfic who hates it with all her heart because the author refused to listen to her speak about BDSM. I’ve attempted the read the horseshit and failed before the third sentence.

And yet…

Fuck.

I think listener-blue and I should see this trainwreck.

Bdsm community, you’ve got a big storm coming.

I just hope audiences will stop to listen to people who are actually a part of the BDSM community when we say, “THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS.”

As a sub, I am very protective of other subs, and I don’t want any of them to think that this kind of relationship is healthy. BDSM is safe, sane, and consensual: always. If it isn’t, it’s abuse. Fifty Shades is about abuse, plain and simple. I don’t care what the author calls it; it—is—abuse.

Please, please, please, if you are thinking of joining the BDSM community, do not use Fifty Shades as a tutorial or a guide. Talk to people in the community. Don’t let yourself be beguiled and bamboozled by abusive people masquerading as doms. Don’t let anyone tell you that Fifty Shades is an accurate representation of BDSM. Don’t let anyone tell you that BDSM is abuse.

Talk to us. Come to us. Let us help you.

Please.

This ^  All of this.  ^^^^^^

Watching this actually made me really uncomfortable. I could see how this trailer and it’s movie could be triggering to someone who’s been in an abusive and controlling relationship.

The scenes are subtle, glossed over with some plane-flying and Beyoncé, but it’s enough that you can catch on to the fact that something’s not right.

At least, as long as you’re not focusing on the smut and Christian’s presumed hotness.

My view on things is, social justice itself is not the problem. Social justice is actually really important. I am totally in support of speaking up for social justice and think it’s great when people blog about causes and movements that are important to them. I’m a part-time social justice blog myself.

It’s when people use social justice as an excuse to be assholes, that’s a problem.

Just because you’re fighting for a good cause doesn’t mean you get to treat other people like shit.

MEMO #109

Loki is reminded that he is not allowed to end every single sentence with “in accordance with prophecy.” Thor is further reminded that he may not nod sagely afterwards and say “so mote it be.”

In Accordance with the Prophecy I declare that this memo is utter bullshittery and should be hence forth ignored. So mote it be.

Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole. 

Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.

The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.

But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.

"BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?" screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. "You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!"

"But where will people get the incentive to work?!" Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. "You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!”

"But who will serve me?" grumbled Marty McMoneybags. "Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??”

I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!

The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)

And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!

Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.

And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.

Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.

And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.

The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?

TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.

reblogging for more top commentary

They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. 

But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.

Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.

I like this. A lot. And I believe in a lot of stuff that really easily disagrees with this.

Things I would do if this was a thing:
1. Quit my degrading part-time job. No more having to feel miserable, stagnant, or used.
2. Get Zia into the extra-curricular activity of her choosing. She could finally get out all that pent-up energy into something worthwhile and put that strong-willed determination to something besides fighting with her mom and I. Karate, dance, soccer… Whatever she chooses.
3. Go to school full-time until both my degrees are finished. Without having to juggle my job and worry about money, passing should be a breeze.
4. Write more. I’m a writer, after all. And I’d have plenty of time to do it.
5. Be healthier. By better foods for the family and I. Exercise more. Stop being mush.
6. Start saving for a house. No more crummy landlords for us!
7. Finally find a job I enjoy. I will be able to finish my degrees and get a job working with children and I can work on finishing my writing projects and getting them published. I could even start that tutoring/homeschool help business I thought up.

So basically, I would make my family healthier, both physically and mentally, finish school so I could be a more productive member of the workforce, and I would be putting money back into the economy by being a more active consumer (And I assure you, I would be buying locally way more often.).

But yeah, this is totally a bad idea. We should just leave families like mine struggling on EBT and driving themselves mad trying to juggle work, school, and children.

I mean, that’s been going well so far, right?
