So homosexuality has been known to be a thing among many (if not most) animals species for a while now and they found that even some microscopic parasites engage in same-sex mating.
If I hear another douchebag claiming that homosexuality (or any other non-hetero sexuality) is “unnatural” I’m gonna puke transuranic elements on them.
Hey guys, I’m back again (there was a kerfuffle, I’m getting evicted from student accommodation this week).
So I was thinking about celebrity culture.
We live in a world where information spreads like wildfire, where we may feel we like celebrities better than some of our friends, where the term ‘celebrity’ has begun to lose its meaning due to the sheer number of these figures and the question of what it is about that is worth celebrating.
We idolise and we idealise people we hardly know. In our world, we have facebook profiles or tumblr or twitter accounts where we choose what to publish and what information we share, and it is freely available to view whenever, wherever. We get glimpses of other people’s lives, whether we know them or not, and we base our perceptions of people on those snippets of information, and make up the rest to suit our expectations. We obsess and fangirl and ‘fall in love’ with these idealisations, and we are disappointed when our expectations are not met. Imagine the feeling of meeting a celebrity, and coming away disappointed.
I’ve watched people fall in love with images of people in their heads. They get frustrated when those people are who they are and don’t meet their personal expectations. They keep trying to change the other person, but they never succeed. We’re probably all biased about everything.
