 how's that in any way, shape or form related to wanting fiction to be well made,
 and not just a strawman made by you so that you can mock someone who
 dislikes sloppy writing and doesn't mind bad ideas being criticized?

 hey, if it's asking questions time, here are some of mine

 assassination?
 what's sloppily made" or a "bad idea" about a girl discovering she can use a
 quasi-magical force in a universe where quasi-magical forces exist?
 what's "sloppily made" or a "bad idea" about having a gay superhero in a
 story that takes place in a world where gay people exist?
 what's so hard to understand about my original post? is it not obvious that i'm
 making a joke? a joke about the way that gatekeepers expect us to be
 constantly proving the "quality and "merits" of us getting any scraps of
 representation at all? when we should not have to fucking do that?
 im tired of being forced to do fandom homework for gatekeepers. i shouldn't
 have to write a dissertation on arya's training with the faceless men to establish
 the validity of her actions to people who've been watching the fucking show all
 along but just have such misogyny-soaked brains that they can't recognize the
 difference between "bad writing" and "my own shitty internal bias." there is
 PLENTY of shitty writing on game of thrones: nearly all of it! but this was a
 logical plot development, and yet fandom still lost its collective shit, because
 skilled women are somehow the most fantastical element of a fucking ice
 zombie story.
 that dude asking "well why should there be a gay avenger?" is a perfect
 example: he wants his homework done for him. he wants an essay in 12-point
 font with one-inch margins outlining Ten Solid Reasons for the inclusion of a gay
 avenger and their Relevance too the Plot, but i will tell you what he deserves,
 which is to be told to fuck off. there should be a fucking gay avenger because
 there are fucking gay people alive on earth and that is IT. we're alive in the
 world, and so we deserve stories. stories about people like us. it's that simple.
 the point of my original post is that i am done politely providing footnoted
 essays on why there should be heroic lead characters that i identify with
 "rey's a mary sue is not a statement that deserves to be refuted with evidence,
 it deserves to be fucking laughed at, and i was.

 To answer your question of where a 'military spending only' kind of government resides: it'd most likely be an
 anarchist state where only the strongest/wealthiest rule, and since it's only spending money on military it must be
 getting those 50% taxes by raiding/extorting the homes of it's citizenry-that or it's bureaucracy has been
 militarized neither of which are enough for it to be called a Libertarian state, but if it's bureaucracy is still civilian
 then it is instead more likely to be Libertarian as such would imply there was a greater size of government
 Perhaps my definitions are simplistic; perhaps we're all just a little weary from 15 years of careful observation and
 research into politics; perhaps we're all tired of walking into echochambers in the name of learning and
 understanding more about others' viewpoints; perhaps I didn't want to type out my 22 page dissertation on the
 failure of labels and ideology from high school into a reddit post because nobody wants to read something with
 such massive density of information; maybe I still presented a shortened version of one page in previously

Dissertation On: i never realized how much i hate modern art until i took a class in modern art it's so pretentious. like half of the pieces we've looked at have been purportedly commenting on elitism in art and income disparities when the piece itself sold for thousands of dollans to be put in a museum for rich people to look at. you're supposed to look at barren canvases with vague splotches of color and meditate on the nature of life, navelgazing for an hour. bitch I can do that in my own home for free. most of the ime the pieces themselves don't require any skill, it's just an asshole with some bright idea thatno one has ever thought of before(which is bullshit, originality is a myth) and the gall to pretend that they're saying something meaningful. A bunch of postmodernists specialize in literal plagiarism but with a different title. wow so edgy. really thought provoking. you sure are making a statement that's relevant and people care about. the most egregious example is this bullshit: this is an overhead view of a plaza wherein some famous guy was commissioned to design a public art piece for. The brick and nonfunctional fountain was already there. The sculpture? a literal wall of ion bisecting the courtyard. this guy was paid over 100k to design this. Now, this is located in a city, smack dab in the middle of a bunch of office buildings. Workers who had to spend 8 hours a day 5 days a week doing menial desk jobs had to look at this ugly piece of shit. You want to have a nice picnic during lunch break with your work buddies? tough shit. You get tilted arc instead fucko. You can't see from one end of the courtyard to another because some dick thought rebar sheet metal was more important. It also impeded movement between the buildings so that you have to go around this fucking obstacle instead of just fucking walking from one side to the other So yeah, these workers got pissed, because you're making an ugly place even uglier for obscene amounts of money without thinking about the ppl who actually have to look at i every day (who had no say in the design). There have been countless studies done on stress and related health problems in office workers and having to look at ugly as sin shit like this piece of work actually contributes to stress and decreases mental and physical health (as opposed to pretty scenery or etc When the designer was told what people thought of his masterpiece, he threw an absolute shitfit. "art doesn't have to be pretty, he said. "art isn't for the public" while it is absolutely true that art doesn't have to be aesthetically pleasing to be meaningful or relevant, putting this fucking monstrosity in a place where people are forced to look at it day in day out, in addition to the ugly buildings and streets and shit that comprises the rest of their lives is just kind of a dick move. Yes, people are painfully aware that life and art and all that shit isn't always pretty. they're the ones who have to live with that fact, not some pompous asshole who thinks he's god's gift to man because he put some metal wall in a plaza. And yeah, not all art is for the public. Art can be self expression or just for your own enjoyment. But if you are being commissioned by the state, paid hundereds of thousands of tax dollars to make a PUBLIC art piece, yeah, it's for the public! saying that other people have no say in what that public art piece looks like, implying that if other people don't like your art that they just Don't Understand True Art TM, is this hugely egotistical self-masturbatory elitism that puts the artist above the working people (when like the whole point of art is supposed to be disrupting this kind of bullshit But that's not even the best part. This fucking douchebag, upon being told that people don't want this metal wall in their courtyard and that they want him to move it, freaks the FUCK out about how he designed it just for this space and taking it out of its context would destroy it". Which like, yeah context is t when the literally the only meaning of this piece was "i got paid obscene amounts of money and im gonna use it to make the ugliest thing i can think of literally just because". If you move it out of the context of the plaza it wouldn't be impeding foot traffic or being an eyesore to the workers who are forced to spend their days there, which is destroying the purpose of the work. So in the end this guy opts to have the piece destroyed rather than moved because he can't stand to have hishigh art- removed from its PurposeTM which is to be unpleasant. i dont give a single goddamn fuck about 'advancing sculpture' or whatever the fuck, if it's causing people stress on top of their already stressful lives just because you thought it would be great to create this atrocity in a place where no one can escape from, you're not advancing' anything, you're just So now the space has been converted to a rather plesant little oasis with plants and lots of benches. anyways thats my dissertation on how much i hate contemporary art and find it to lack relevance or meaning to the people it supposedly represents or defends. it takes itself too seriously and imposes arbitrary and hypocritical statements on the nature of art at the expense of any real substance. in the world we live in, pretty things for the sake of being pretty, having stories that are entertaining and engaging and relatable, having fun and feeling good in a world that devalues those things, etc. are far more impactful and radical than a who jacks off to their fine art. thanks for coming to my ted talk have a good night some #that just means you're uncultured. literally give no fucks susan #im not interested in elitism and you can suck a dick 53,922 notes

 When the designer was told what people thought of his
 masterpiece, he threw an absolute shitfit. "art doesn't have to
 be pretty, he said. "art isn't for the public"
 while it is absolutely true that art doesn't have to be
 aesthetically pleasing to be meaningful or relevant, putting
 this fucking monstrosity in a place where people are forced to
 look at it day in day out, in addition to the ugly buildings and
 streets and shit that comprises the rest of their lives is just
 kind of a dick move. Yes, people are painfully aware that life
 and art and all that shit isn't always pretty. they're the ones
 who have to live with that fact, not some pompous asshole
 who thinks he's god's gift to man because he put some metal
 wall in a plaza.
 And yeah, not all art is for the public. Art can be self
 expression or just for your own enjoyment. But if you are
 being commissioned by the state, paid hundereds of
 thousands of tax dollars to make a PUBLIC art piece, yeah,
 it's for the public! saying that other people have no say in
 what that public art piece looks like, implying that if other
 people don't like your art that they just Don't Understand True
