i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
I always say this, but language is really powerful. changing a mere word or even the order of words can alter how a person perceives the message. it can make a lot of difference if people are reported “dead,”or if people are reported as killed. there is a huge difference between being murdered, being shot, and getting murdered and getting shot. one shows the agency of the person who did the killing/it shows that the action was carried out by them, while the other shows that it’s the victims fault, it is them dying, it’s them being shot. that’s why the headline in NYTimes went from “Four Young Boys Killed Playing on Gaza Beach” to “Boys Drawn to Gaza Beach, and Into Center of Mideast Strife" Here the innocent boys are not killed, but were merely in the wrong place. it’s the boys fault for going into the "Mideast Strife" rather than the settler fault for killing them/directly shooting at them.
Whoop! My new sideblog (Feminist Pandas - in case you haven’t heard) just got its first piece of Anon Hate Mail! Part of me wants to post it to record the momentous occasion, but that is not the point of the blog. Keep things light.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
- finding someone aesthetically pleasing
- being sexually attracted to someone
- being romantically attracted to someone
