anonymous asked:

Why do you only snap back pretty girls and light skin girls.? Thats stupid. There's a lot of gorgeous white and black girls out there. You're ridiculous.

How on Earth would you know who I snapchat back? Please be quiet and stop making stupid assumptions. You’re ridiculous

10 Assumptions about Asexuals

Based off my personal experiences…these are some examples of what people think of me as an asexual.

1) Asexuals are childish.

2) Asexuals are in denial of their sexuality.

3) Asexuals are simply confused.

4) Asexuals are simply late bloomers and will be sexual soon enough.

5) Asexuals are lying about their orientation because they don’t want people to think they’re perverts.

6) Asexuals are mentally ill / sociopathic people without the ability to love someone else.

7) Asexuals are all also aromantic.

8) Asexuals love to touch themselves because they only love themselves.

9) Asexuals don’t enjoy romance and think it’s lame or disgusting.

10) Asexuals hate any form of contact with other human beings.

My reaction:

FUCK YOU ALL IF YOU THINK ANY OF THIS IS TRUE. (I would go into a long discussion but that would take all day. Just stop with the assumptions thanks.)

I feel like I can only really play around or mess about as a Nigerian. I mean, my Nigerian-ness is the backbone of my jokes and bants. That’s why most (not Nigerians) see me as serious at the surface level. Assumptions are never good, though. I don’t really make assumptions about people when I first meet them, partly because I’m used to people making such blatantly off assumptions about me.

I used to be kinda vexed that people kept calling me serious, cuz it’s like, YOU DON’T KNOW MEE!!! YOU’RE NOT CORRECT!!! YOU GET NO SENSE!! If you really knew me, you know that I am someone that is forever laughing, at inappropriate times even! Like come on, son. Like, honestly, if you see me with bare Africans, or even one African, I’m more than likely laughing my head off, you know.

But now, it’s like, I don’t even care that much, cuz I know that it’s cuz these people no be omo Naija, omo Ghana, or omo Africa, lol. 

Plus my resting face does not help matters, I look unfriendly. I know this, and I’ve confirmed it with multiple people, but hey, what can I do? Be forever smiling?? Fun kini? I can never do that…I will smile when I greet you, I will smile when I’m talking with you, I will smile when I say goodbye, finish. 

Today at school...
  • College peer:Hey, what's up?
  • Me (gesturing to my laptop):Both of my crushes are chatting with me at once, and it's kind of awesome.
  • CP:Both?
  • Me:*grin/nod*
  • CP:What do you mean both? I thought you have a boyfriend.
  • Me:I'm polyamorous.
  • CP:What does that mean?
  • Me:It means I'm not limited to just one romantic partner.
  • CP:Huh. I never thought *you* would be *that* sort of person.
  • Me:What exactly do you mean, "*that* sort of person?"
  • CP:I just always pictured you to, you know, fall in love with a man and get married and maybe go on romantic adventures with him.
  • Me:*slow jaw drop*
  • CP:*lists off more baseless and extremely personal assumptions*
  • Me:
  • CP:
  • Me:I don't have the emotional energy to deal with this right now. I'm going to go.
  • Me:*gathers my school things and leaves*
  • CP (calling out behind me):I'm sorry if I offended you.
  • Me:Thank you.
  • Me:*texts each person a brief apology for not saying goodbye*
  • One of my crushes:*texts back support*
  • Me:*feels the glow rekindle and evaporate the damp spots left by my peer's dousing*
I may be the only one hoping this, but I'm honestly hoping Jamie or Lily clear this whole situation up this weekend.

The amount of stress this whole debacle causes me is both stupid and unnecessary.

Like, I should be worrying and stressing more about the final grades of the first half of the summer semester, not about a fucking Hollywood relationship.  

Oh my god why.

I can’t find the original post to comment on, but.

Testosterone makes people aggressive, so it’s natural to assume males would be naturally aggressive even though that’s not the case. Even if they are, that doesn’t mean you should HIDE YO WIFE HIDE YO KIDS HE RAPIN’ ERR’BODY ALL UP IN DIS BITCH.

Especially male humans, who are perfectly capable of practicing self-control. Aggressive =/= rapist/murderer. Uuuuuggghhhhhhh.

Annoying Day at Work

Lady: I need to get a cake.

Me: When do you need it?

Lady: uhhh, now?

Me:… uh, yeah, no.

Lady: Why not?

Me: I’m not the decorator.

Lady: It doesn’t look that hard.

Me: I don’t have the code to print out the image, but our decorator can make the cake for you in the morning.

Lady: Okay, I need it by 8:30 am.

Me: That’s not going to be possible, she doesn’t get here until 9am.

Lady: Fine, then like, 9:15am?

Me: More like 10am, since she will need to get everything together to make your cake.

Lady: *stare*… .  *exasperated sigh*

Zina doesn't have a boyfriend, for what it's worth. She had one last year, but she hasn't been seen with him since late 2012. The photos from the D&G party of them kissing are from July 2012, not 2013. So yeah, just clearing that up: she's single. I honestly think Jamily is broken up, given Jamie's girlfriend history... and well, oh well. As long as they're professional about it, nothing should matter.

Before I say anything, I greatly appreciate you being very civil and nice in this message. After seeing some of the messages received by other blogs in regards to this whole hoopla, it really means a lot.

I’ve seen quite a few blogs that say she has one and saying that she was seen at the D&G event with him. This is the first that says otherwise. I personally didn’t see anything that said she did or did not have a boyfriend, so I really don’t know what to make of it.

I don’t know a whole lot about Jamie’s “record” when it comes to dating, but I am aware that he dates frequently and he started dating Lily not too long after separating from Bonny. Although I do frown at that, that may just be how he copes with heartbreak. I know that a similar coping method is encouraged when a dog dies: get a puppy. Granted, the circumstances are very different. 

I don’t really have an opinion on the matter of a breakup. If they separate, they separate. If they’re together and the whole situation is a giant misunderstanding, then that’s the case. In fact, And I do completely agree with you: as long as they’re professional, it should not matter. It’s also technically none of my business as it’s their relationship, not mine. I’m just tired of people saying “he’s a cheater”, calling Zina a “slut”, and boohooing over a separation that has or has not been confirmed or denied. 

All in all, thank you very much for informing me. It is very much appreciated. I apologize for this lengthy response (I more or less sorted out my opinion on the matter without really noticing at first).
