trusting marvel with your favs is like riding a roller coaster without a seat belt and just hanging on for dear life hoping nothing bad happens

i am literally the only person in my history class who has been turning in work consistently all year and i just got an email from my professor saying that if i’m not feeling up to it i dont have to bother writing the 18 page final paper he assigned i just have to not tell anybody god is real

For a while i thought you meant that you had to not tell people that god was real.

This is why punctuation was created

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

That comment is the only acceptable response to this quote

No, no actually it isn’t.
Do you know what the quotes means.
If you say the phrase is making no sense and is ridiculous, you are saying
'Let's take away the few rights women, poc, queer people etc have, because white cishet men have always rules stuff and it must continue like this'
you are saying
'beating children has done me and my parents and grandparents no harm, so I shall beat my child if it brings home a B.'
That’s what you are saying if you declare the sentence ridiculous.

Let me bring this up since someone decided to make a ridiculous, shitty example out of a medical situation. I’m a biostatistician PHD candidate, and one of my professors told me this story:
For a long time, since before the 70’s, there was this belief, even among top-ranking cardiologists that taking beta-blockers was bad for people at risk for heart attacks. There was literally no scientific literature on WHY this was bad, it was just a predominantly-held belief within the medical community. (This is actually extremely common. Most doctors treat patients on 40% “widely held medical belief” that has never been proven on paper).
The first man who actually decided to TEST the effect of beta-blockers on at-risk populations found that HEY ACTUALLY BETA-BLOCKERS PREVENTED HEART ATTACKS.
How did the scientific community react?? Were they completely logical and objective in accepting his findings?? HELL NO
They smeared that guy’s name through the mud, no one accepted his results, they claimed he was putting his patient’s life at risk for  even TESTING this thing etc. etc.
It took a good 10-15 years of tests on beta-blockers (a fucking uphill battle) before the medical community finally accepted this as a treatment for people at risk for heart attacks.
But meanwhile, think of all the people who DIED but COULD HAVE LIVED THANKS TO THIS TREATMENT but DIDN’T because stuffy old white guys decided “this is the way we always did it!!!!”
Here’s a source (it’s a scientific article just read the conclusion)
