Doing a Friends-cut. There's people on my flist that I never talk to, and who never comment (either they have stopped commenting, or have never commented at all), so I think it's time that I remove people. Nothing personal, of course, but if I don't know you at least a tiny bit, or in some ways trust you, I'm not comfortable with you reading my journal. And if you never post anymore, I might remove you as well. If I cut you and you for some reason want to stay, message me and I'll add you back. This is not a 'comment if you want to stay' post, just a way to keep my Flist updated.

Again, nothing personal. But my Flist is so big, especially compared to how many people I actually talk to. So yeah, if we talk and you still use your journal, I probably won't remove you.

We don't celebrate that here in Denmark. Showing your American centrism, yet again, LJ? :P.

I don't really get this question, tbh. Why and how would you ever 'choose' the number of siblings like that? I have 3 younger siblings, and despite of all of the fighting and all the hurting at times, I would never choose to remove/change any of them; and I definitely wouln't just 'add' a new sibling for my own benefit. I love my siblings for who they are, because they are my siblings, not because of how many they are, or what gender they are. Idk, it just feels weird to me that anyone would think of their siblings in numbers/genders like that.  But that's probably because I have siblings, so the thought of being able to choose like that is way too foreign to me. I get wanting siblings, though, but to think about 'how many' just weirds me out. I'd always wanted an older sibling, but I would never actually choose to get one, or to change things, even if I could.

or maybe I'm just reading too much into this question, lol.

I watch The Daily Show, I enjoy The Daily Show, and I respect and admire The Daily Show. But I also realize that I shouln't count on them for news, or take everything Jon Stewart says at face value. And I realize that they are only humans, and therefore have faults, and make mistakes, just like everyone else.

Lately, I have seen a lot of people criticize the Daily show, and their role in the media. And while many of the allegations have been very valid (sexism, racism, and ableism etc), there are some allegations that I do not agree with. At all.


More under cut: )

Not really, no. I've had a couple of anons on LJ trying to start shit, but that's it. No one has ever really harassed me on here, or elsewhere on the internet, thankfully.

It depends. If I visit a community like ONTD, I'm not there for the celebs, I'm there for the snark in the comments. I don't really care about the lives of the celebs, I'm just there for fun.

I do care about the lives of celebrities who I love and admire, to a certain extent. I don't go out of my way, trying to find stuff, that's not public information. I think that there's a fine line between looking at information, that anyone can find, and go looking for information, that's not in the public eye. I try not doing the latter. I am also well aware that the persona of the celebrity in question, is a front put up when they're in the public eye. I don't *really* know the person, even if I have an idea about who they are as a person; so I don't feel totally creepy being a fan of them. Sometimes I stumble upon things that contain uncomfortable information, and I try to ignore it, or skip over it when that happens.

Mine's Louise, and although it's pronounced differently in Danish(Lou-eez-uh), I actually like the English pronunciation better; in real life still use the Danish pronunciation, though. I would never want to change my name to another one, because names are names, and I don't feel like that's a decision I want to make; If other people choose to do that it's their business, of course.

ETA: The first one is pretty much how my name sounds in Danish: http://www.forvo.com/word/louise_bourgeois/,

and here: http://www.forvo.com/word/louise_de_lorraine-vaud%C3%A9mont/.

I found this article called  'Only men are allowed to be perfect', via[info]51stcenturyfox and her posthttp://51stcenturyfox.livejournal.com/111521.html, so I thought I would link it here as well, because I love the points it makes, and I want to share it. It is about sexism in fandom, and I find it spot on. Here is a part of the article that I really love:

Try taking any female character you dislike, and transforming them into a man... how does this change how you look at them? There are still going to be plenty of characters you dislike, regardless of gender, because they're still a cat hater, or a Yankees fan, or they look just like that math teacher who used to call you stupid. But how much time would you spend bashing them? Do you think there would be whole communities devoted to hating them? Would they be constantly vilified in fanfic?

But what does it matter if we bash female characters? They're only fictional, after all. I'll just say this- I don't think it's a good idea to spend a lot of time disparaging and despising women, even if they aren't real, as that's the sort of thing that can become a habit.

Yes, I'm oversimplifying things, being judgmental, and the people who see this are almost certainly certainly the last people on earth who need to read it, but I had to throw it out there.

Check out the thread, and read the rest of it here:


What do you guys think?
I'd like a lot of people from the Lost, Torchwood, Harry Potter and Doctor Who fandoms to see this.
