Would anyone be interested in doing like a Zap Zone/laser tag meet up thing? I just had this thought and it seems like it’d be really fun.
For the homestucks, if you’re worried about your paint and stuff, just remember - you don’t have to run around. You can camp and kick ass at it.
And think about it! How much fun would it be to get pictures of you cosplays in black light like that? We could reserve a room, eat pizza and play arcade games, and just have a ball!
I dunno, I just think it’d be a total blast. Anyone else interested?
idk what to title this. it is sims related. there.
so everyone gets an anon message at some point asking “why do all your sims look the same?”
i just wanted to post this, because i know that some people think of this type of message as a bad thing, but i really don’t.
eeeeveryone gets that message, and you know what? certain people’s sims DO look the same, and that’s actually kind of great, because you can tell who’s sim is who’s, you know? like a trademark of some sort. i like that. people have certain styles, and you never really see the same style twice. that’s amazing.
i’ll admit, i use a lot of the same features in my sims, i even did it when i played sims 2, and it isn’t going to offend me if you say “all your sims look the same”, because a) i kind of know that already, b) they’re my sims, not yours, i can make them however i want, and c) when i have in-game born sims, they are ALWAYS clones of their parents and i cannot help that. it’s annoying as shit.
so that’s that. if you don’t like my style of sims, then just don’t follow me, or unfollow me, it’s not a hard thing to grasp.
In which I have a lot of feelings for Lantern ladies
Particularly the ones not in the spotlight.
When I first started reading Green Lantern comics, I thought all of those huge double-page spreads of epic battles with dozens of Lanterns were only there for coolness factor. I thought that the Lanterns in the background were just random throw-away designs that would only show up on that single page.
And then I started noticing that some of those “filler Lanterns” did show up in the background over and over again and that some of them have interesting backstories that I hope one day get developed.
Here’s a very incomplete list of Lantern ladies of different Corps. Images taken from the Sinestro Corps Secret Files include a short data sheet too, others are simply screencaps from comics. I may add more ladies as I keep reading, or you can always point me to more lady Lanterns.
Okay, so I’m planning on organizing a meetup in Topeka for anyone in the Topeka/Lawrence/towns north of Topeka that nobody knows about that’s interested!!
I’m figuring about November 10th or 11th, at either Gage Park or Westridge Mall (the mall would be best for cold and or/rainy weather)?? If these dates don’t work for you, shoot me an ask and we can probably work something out!
(This is also just planning since i still have to get permission from parents and things???)
Kind of a rambling...well, ramble on trans* people
I got around to thinking about why it’s so difficult for people to admit to being trans*, and I came to the conclusion that society as a whole doesn’t really have a positive attitude or even a decently accurate view of what trans* people are.
When people say ‘transsexual’ the term ‘tranny’ is usually the first one to pop up in people’s heads. For one thing, that term is pretty offensive, and the fact that it can be used as a punchline says a lot about what we think about transsexuals, especially mtfs. For ftms, people usually think that it’s just a phase, that their trans* friend is just being rebellious or being tomboyish, but that’s not always the case. There’s a lot of bullying happening to trans* people in general, and it’s because most people simply don’t believe that people are sometimes born into the wrong bodies. To put it frankly, lots of things can go wrong when it comes to being born. Not everyone pops out as an able bodied, cisgendered person with no mental illnesses whatsoever, aka society’s image of ‘healthy human being.’ All sorts of weirdness happens, and bodies do in fact get mixed up.
Anyway, back to what I was originally talking about. It’s a joke, to be a trans* person in society’s eyes. Things like ‘oohhh duuude….the chick…was actually a dude’ and insults relating to trans* people, such as ‘tranny’ and ‘shemale’ reflect how most people see trans* folks. (Ironically, it’s the other way around. Dude’s actually a chick.) Why is it funny, or perverted, or disgusting, to be trans*? Why are the identities of people suddenly funny enough to be the butt of a joke? Why are these same identities discerned as disgusting enough to be an insult? Is it because almost all trans* characters in media are a joke and/or designed to be abject?
How many positive portrayals of trans* folks can you find in a mainstream work? When is a trans* character not a creepy character and/or stereotypically gay man? (Not that people like this don’t exist, but they’re not the only trans* folks around, and usually they’re made to be really grotesque in the work out of transphobia.) The problem with mtfs especially is tied in to how females are treated/viewed in society, which is a whole other issue that I’m not going to cover in this talk past the fact that for some reason, it’s degrading to be female, and that the idea persists that a man who would want to be the so called ‘weaker sex’ is a pervert or sick in some way. See: women can wear pants, men can’t wear skirts, women can like blue, men can’t like pink/purple unless they’re gay (read: oh, not traditionally masculine, okay), etc.
So when you take all of this and just roll it into one of the world’s ugliest burritos, you begin to get the idea that it’s not really easy to explain why you want to be called “sir” instead of “ma’am.” Do people think that you’re just a power hungry bitch? Maybe, but then you get the idea that somehow, “ma’am” and “sir” are not equal terms, and that’s kind of sort of a really big problem. I recently asked this of my fellow fencers, to say ‘yes sir’ instead of ‘yes ma’am’ because being called ma’am made me squirm and also want be an asshole and be the world’s worst referee. Apparently one of the guys thought I preferred it for the sake of speed. I don’t even know what people would do if I had been CAMAB and asked people to call me ‘ma’am.’
It’s a tough world, and a world that I hope doesn’t stay for long. I’m doing all I can to slowly spread the good word about trans* folks, that we’re just like everyone else. People wish for things, to be taller, or shorter, or maybe to have curly hair or to be able to grow a full beard. Well, we’re the same way. Some of us are happy with our bodies, some aren’t. Isn’t this the case with most people in the world? I don’t see why we have to be all mean to each other like we are. Let’s just all get along, yeah?
