On a Computer Far, Far Away...

A blog started as a place for my Star Wars The Old Republic headcanons, drabbles, ect cetera, because this game spawns them like mad and I need somewhere to put them. Turned into my main blog with an eclectic mix that includes various scifi fandoms, writing, a few rants, some GW2, TSW, Skyrim, and Bioware things. Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated here.

Maybe a bit of RP on the side, who knows.

I'm on Ebon Hawk if you wanna play!

You can call be Scribs!. :3 Holler at me if you wanna talk, I don't bite and love geekery.

My boyfriend, Taters, has his headcanon involved with mine some, so if you wanna check him out, he's kinda new but sweet and lovely and asdfghsdjkgl ok. His characters that you will see here are Cyraas, Gidaeon, and occasionally Grimlore.

Princeton Concludes What Kind of Government America Really Has, and It’s Not a Democracy | PolicyMic 
The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…

one of these dumb fucks had a guy in an elevator ask her for coffe, ( it was at 2 am, but all he did was ask) " i find you interesting and would want to get to know you more, want to come to my room for some coffe?" and when talking about it on her channel se said " guys, dont do that" dont do what? ASK? ASK someone you find interesting out?

I bet he was fat or ugly or both.  Its always rape if an unattractive man asks you out. 

I dunno.

I’d be kind of creeped out if someone I didn’t know asked me, in an elevator, at 2am, if I’d like to come back to their room for coffee.

A less creepy option would have been, “Would you like to get together sometime for coffee?”

If a guy I don’t know, in a hotel elevator, asked me back to his room (even if he said it was “for some coffee”), I would find it creepy and extremely off-putting. 

It isn’t “don’t ask someone you find interesting out”, it’s “don’t ask someone you find interesting and don’t personally know back to your room, whether it’s 2am or 2pm, and especially not in an enclosed space like an elevator”. Do what Calleo said and just ask about getting together for some coffee sometime. Try to do so somewhere she isn’t ‘trapped’ with you. 

I guarantee you if she’d accepted the invitation and she ended up assaulted, many people (including the OP and answerer) would be all, “Well, she shouldn’t have gone back to his room, did she really think he meant just coffee?” Or worse still, “Oh, it’s buyer’s remorse, she regrets it and is crying rape.”

Just because you personally find it creepy or off-putting doesn’t mean it is creepy. and please don’t draw your own conclusions about “rape culture” in an event that didn’t even happen.  It’s really disgusting how some people trivialise rape by turning everything they don’t like into rape or find a way to work it into every conversation about sex.   You have a lot of fucking nerve accusing me of that, you know, especially since I have been sexually assaulted in similar situations to the hypothetical one you described. 

She isn’t the only one, dude. It’s hella creepy to me as well and I don’t think we would be alone there. As for drawing conclusions, I think Nine is just going by the, yknow, innumerable incidents where that HAS actually happened.

The trivializing rape bit makes no sense to me. At all.

I am sorry for what happened to you. That’s awful and horrid. Then again the tone you took with that ask? Didn’t exactly help your case. Especially if that is how it happened to you. Can you blame someone for not wanting anything to do with the exact same situation??

Thank you Nine for putting it into words far more eloquently than me.
