Being internet smart is like the 21st century version of being street smart.
Okay Dad, these are the websites you use to watch your show.
Sockshare, Putlocker, gorillavid, nosvideo and novamov are your friends, stick to them and you know you’re okay.
DO NOT click on anything that wants you to download updates or DivX.
DO NOT click on adverts on the side.
And be very cautious of fake play buttons.
You are ready. Go forth and watch Dexter.

The amount of truth in this photo is astounding.
making fun of your kid for enjoying the things they enjoy is the quickest way to make them feel so completely isolated from you that they are more comfortable talking to strangers on the internet than you about their problems
if john discovered his bisexuality in hidden ways in the army (and especially if the man he was involved with was his commanding officer who refused to make the relationship official), it explains a lot about how john sees himself in society and civilian life.
for john his bisexuality is something to hide because it can’t work in the civilian world. no one close to him sees to know he’s bisexual and when you naturally repress emotions and have difficulties to express yourself, you don’t try to come out as anything else but straight (or… ‘not gay’), and especially if you’re approaching your forties
maybe he thinks that sholto was the exception? maybe before meeting sherlock john doesn’t think he will be attracted to another man ever again? maybe he doesn’t even want to? (if sholto broke his heart or if the relation didn’t work out because of the secrecy) john seems to be attracted to a very specific type of men (physically and emotionally: i’m convinced john needs to feel there is an emotional connection between he and the man he desires)
and then john meets sherlock. and sherlock is completely his type, with all the defaults: unsociable, ‘married to his work’, not emotionally capable to connect romantically (even if for sholto it was different, john thinks it’s in sherlock’s case medical: he’s a sociopath). and maybe johns thinks, before hitting on sherlock: if this relationship matters will i be able to be myself? to ‘come out’ as ‘not gay but not straight’?

i swear to god if i see another person saying ‘if you think obesity is bad, you’re a fat shamer!!’
obesity is a real problem that causes lots of diseases
and just because i don’t like obesity, doesn’t mean i don’t like obese people
it’s like, i hate cancer, but i don’t hate people with cancer or shame people who have cancer
Except that your premise is incorrect.
Obesity =/= poor health. Obesity CAN be a contributing factor to some diseases (usually only one of many contributing factors - funny nobody cares about the other ones), but the preponderance of recent data concludes that body mass index is NOT a determinant for longevity - fitness is.
One of the largest studies ever conducted on this subject tracked all causes of mortality across six groups of people:
- Normal weight, not fit
- Overweight not fit
- Obese, not fit
- Normal weight, fit
- Overweight, fit
- Obese, fit
They discovered, to their shock, that among the three groups who were fit that there was ZERO increase in mortality as body size increased.
Lemme say that again.
The obese fit people were no more likely to die than the normal weight fit people.
In fact, the obese fit people were HALF as likely to die as the normal weight, not-fit people.
In other words, it is better (in terms of longevity) to be fat - even obese - and fit than normal weight and not fit. So where’s all your concern for that skinny person who can’t run up a flight of stairs without gasping for breath?
Among the not-fit groups, there was an increase in mortality as body size increased. But even then, it was not a huge increase.
"But your health!" has long been the rationalization for fat shaming. Yeah, well, I lost 90 pounds in six months once because of overactive thyroid that gave me massive tachycardia and threatened my life, but FUNNILY ENOUGH nobody was concerned about my health THEN. Interesting how all that health concern only manifests itself when you’re FAT.
Obesity can be a contributing factor to some health problems, like diabetes and heart disease. But so can diet, stress levels, genetics, and environment. And yet it’s only the obesity that inspires all this very vocal concern about our health. And your cancer analogy is, pardon my French, bullshit. Cancer patients are seldom blamed and judged for their cancer, but obese people are sure as fuck blamed and judged for being fat. You may be an enlightened soul who doesn’t blame or judge fat people. That’s great, but you belong to a very small club.
There is copious research over the last ten years showing that the so-called horrific health effects of obesity are exaggerated, and in many cases totally nonexistent. But go ahead, keep obsessing about the health of all us fat folks.
Like that’s even your business in the first place.
