bleedingperfection:

The word “cis” and any variation or development thereof is no better than the word “fag.”

If fact, it is basically the mirror equivalent of the word “faggot” being used to describe gay people.

If you want equality, practice it. Using terms like “cisshet” completely…

I don’t think you’re catching on to what I’m saying.

Regardless of semantic origins, “cis” is currently used commonly as a way of demeaning straight men in particular. It’s not about feeling offended or discomforted, it’s about upholding a moral line. What it comes down to is this, basically:

It’s in everyone’s best interest to avoid hypocrisy. It’s a simple matter of not only being tactful of others’ lifestyles and beliefs, but also displaying the desire for others to be tactful towards you in return. If you don’t want perceivably derogatory terms being used towards you, then keep in mind that there are terms that you may not perceive as derogatory that many people may feel vastly different about. If one group of people shows respect, others will follow suit.

Terms are not exclusive to particular lifestyles. And “faggot” can mean “sticks” or “cigarette,” too. Definitions are not exclusive, usage is not exclusive, and there’s really nothing else to it.

To imply that certain people cannot use particular words simply because their lifestyles don’t encompass the commonly accepted usages is quite frankly, completely and utterly pointless.

WAIT

pyrrha is based on achilles

achilles dies from an arrow to the heel

cinder uses a bow and arrow

FALSE

Pyrrha is based on Leonidas. Her name is a reference to the concept of “Pyrrhic victory,” which Leonidas and the 300 Spartans achieved at the battle of Thermopylae.

This means that if and when Pyrrha does die, it will be in defense of her team, and her death will play a role in one of JNPR’s later victories.

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.

image

Your honor, something is amiss here!

As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 

Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

image

Where are the bar codes?!

This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 

Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!

Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!!

(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—

image
…! I’ve got it!)

While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 

Well, Edgeworth?

While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.

Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?

Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.

Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)

WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!

As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!

A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!

Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 

The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the titles on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Lex Populi”!

Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!

How’s that for decisive evidence?
