Stop wearing the bindi unless you're South Asian you racist dumb shit.

If you’re so self righteous, why you sending me this message anonymously? 

You should read this article written by Anjali Joshi

"And, that’s just it. Culture evolves. Indians appreciated the beauty of a bindi and brought it into the world of fashion several decades ago. The single red dot that once was, transformed into a multitude of colors and shapes embellished with all the glitz and glamor that is inherent in Bollywood. I don’t recall an uproar when Indian actress Madhuri Dixit’s bindi was no longer a traditional one. Hindus accepted the evolution of this cultural symbol then. And, as the bindi makes it’s way to the foreheads of non-South Asians, we should accept — even celebrate — the continued evolution of this cultural symbol. Not only has it managed to transcend religion and class in a sea of one-billion brown faces, it will now adorn the faces of many more races. And that’s nothing short of amazing.So, you won’t find this Hindu posting a flaming tweet accusing a white girl of #culturalappropriation. I will say that I’m glad you find this aspect of my culture beautiful. I do too."

what if bangtan does something.

WHAT IF BANGTAN DOES SOMETHING.  

WHAT IF BANGTAN DOES SOMETHING.  

WHAT IF BANGTAN DOES SOMETHING.  

Imagine your favorite character chasing you out into the rain after a huge fight and kissing you passionately and whispering into your ear with a seductive voice, “I’m sorry babe. Let me make it up to you” as they wiggle their eyebrows and drag you inside.

Dear white people in my inbox

Since so many of you have decided to write me saying ‘Let me tell you a thing’ I’m just going to answer it once.

No.

No, you don’t get to tell black people how to feel when they are enduring racism.

No, you don’t get to decide what is and is not racist.

No, the intentions of the white person making racist remarks are not more important than the remarks themselves, or more important than the effect said remarks may have. Intentions are irrelevant. Once the action has been made, it’s up to the perpetrator to take responsibility and learn from their mistake. It is not the victim’s responsibility to educate them or do a god blessed thing.

Sincerely,

Jay Justice

shoujo plots

{daiya no ace} → miyuki/sawamura | wc; 1236

in which miyuki forces sawamura to watch jun’s favourite shoujo dramas with them (insert mentions of gross cliches)

The grounds, at an hour trailing behind practice, are an affair of endless downpours of showers. A dark cloud hangs across Tokyo’s skyline; a thick, dark grey curling over the sides of the skyline and lightning sets the clouds up in ghosted lights. Thunder beats at the hinges of the overcast blankets when Miyuki slings an arm over Sawamura’s shoulder, on his way back from the shower.

the way stupid in-jokes get started

So Tiz, while a quiet guy, enjoys physical activities. (No Ringabel, stop waggling your eyebrows like that.) Fights get him pumped up and while that’s usually kept in check by him being concerned for his friends, if they’re having an easy time with monsters in the area he’ll get into a swing and just be fairly bouncy, energetic, starting to match Edea’s enthusiasm. Sometimes he starts adding flourishes to his victory pose—when he was using the pirate asterisk, no one could discourage him from adopting a stereotypical pirate accent and a bit of a swagger (nor did anyone really want to, Tiz was clearly having fun with it and it was amusing).

So this one time. This one time they go out to grind, they’re curb-stomping to practice their curb-stomping skills, and Tiz is using Ranger, maybe with Spell Fencer as a sub, and he is really getting into his groove, but Ranger isn’t like Pirate where there’s an accent and swagger to go with it, nor is it like most of his other classes where he can swing his sword a bit to work off the energy, he’s just got all this excitement building up in his chest and he doesn’t know what to do with it, and suddenly, after one battle, he thinks: well he is in a wolf’s guise. What would a wolf do? So he howls, and it feels really good.

Except that then the other three are staring at him and he’s like oh no that was a really dorky thing to do and he starts shrinking away STILL WITH THE WOLF MASK ON and turning red as a tomato underneath it. It’s just such an awkward moment because Agnès looks startled (she might have thought it was genuine before realizing who was making it) and clearly baffled by his outburst and Edea and Ringabel are just identical expressions of bewilderment—until Edea starts smiling and dramatically stage-whispers “Wolf-Man”.

At that point she and Ringabel burst out laughing and that’s it, any bonus streak they built up is ruined, they have to go back to Grandship because even Agnès is starting to giggle at the silliness and no one can concentrate anymore. It only results in more laughter when Zatz and Datz ask why they’re back early and look completely confused by the honest answer of “Tiz howled”—even Tiz is starting to crack up at that point, he can’t believe he thought to do that.

Edea is banned from calling Tiz “Wolf-Man” when they’re trying to do anything serious, because every time she does call him that afterward the four of them start cracking up again. (They also eventually have to ban Tiz from making joking little “awroowroo” noises at Ringabel or Edea when they’re trying to do something, because they will end up snorting with laughter.)

Let me put it this way, if Harry was concerned about being followed by paps, stalked to and from the house he actually lives in, chased in a car etc, if that is a legitimate concern for him, if being papped at his house is something he didn’t want to be a thing, he would not have bought maybe the least private house in all of London, and call me crazy, but I feel he might have maybe tried to keep a house purchase in LA on the DL at least a tiny bit….. gated community or not, hey guess what, people know where he is and will know where to find him when he’s there. And so… decoy.

You don’t make spending decisions, investment decisions, hiring decisions, or whether-you’re-going-to-look-for-a-job decisions when you don’t know what’s going to happen.

Transit Moon in Aquarius
When the Moon is in Aquarius, we want to be individuals. We want to break out of the box and explore new ideas, beliefs, and cultures. We’re tired of the norm, and we want to experiment. Rebellion is the name of the game – just make sure your actions are for a purpose, and not just to be a rebel. Unless you’re a teenager, that’s just really dumb. This is an excellent moon to get unstuck if you’ve been feeling trapped, or have had a situation that’s felt flat and is going nowhere. The energy of Aquarius allows us to do things we might never think of doing before and therefore get us moving forward. With Capricorn, working on your schedule seemed important, but under this Moon, that might get thrown out the window because we desire more freedom and less restriction. We’re into humanitarian efforts and helping people as a whole rather than as individuals (so donating to charity rather than actually going to the soup kitchen). Bouncing ideas off of others can be positive now, as intellectual interaction is heightened. We do need to be careful we don’t go overboard with our causes, because they could just be a two-day fad.
Good for: natal Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius Moons, those with natal Moon conjunct natal Uranus, or natal Moon in the Eleventh House

Transit Moon in the 10th House
Advancing your life seems important when the Moon is going through this house. Making sure you’re choosing to surround yourself with people who will support your endeavors and whom you support as well can be a focus. Also, evaluate whether or not your goals are truly serving a purpose for your inner needs, or just to have some security. Issues related to your social status, career, and authority figures, especially parents, can come up now. You may find you’re not satisfied with where you are in your life, and want to make a change. You can also be more sensitive to what people say and think about you. If handled well, this can be a great period for you career-wise, allowing you to make the most progress of the month. If not, then you could be overly involved in your work (workaholic), and feel yourself burning out. You could also have problems listening to others, preferring to tell people what to do, think, and feel rather than listening what they actually want, think, and feel. You could feel more responsible now though, so it can be a good time to deal with your responsibilities and get things done. If you make good decisions, then you can see them coming to fruition later.

i know people have theories, but the theory that Beth was bitten is really dumb. unless you only watch the show to ship bethyl, you know that in both the comics, game and show, a bite = death.

they wouldn’t make a cure or immunity to the virus because it goes against everything the creators and directors believe is best for the show.
