No No No No No No No No No No
You are missing the point of the ENTIRE VIDEO. The point IS to make heterosexual people empathize with non-heterosexuals. In a very easy, *obvious* manner. It asks the question, “what if you were in our shoes?”. That’s HOW you empathize with someone.
To quote a YouTube comment on it, “It’s about as offensive as Freaky Friday.”
I’m very clear on what the video was supposed to do. I’m not missing the point, I’m saying that the point is being made in a way that makes me uncomfortable.
I’ve never seen Freaky Friday, but as I understand it, it’s a bodyswap movie where mother and daughter discover that each other’s lives are more difficult than either had previously imagined.
That comparison isn’t accurate. For this video to be like Freaky Friday, it would require a straight person to imagine what it’s like to be a queer person.
Not what it’s like to be a straight person who’s oppressed by queer people, but what it’s like to be a queer person who’s oppressed by straight people. Freaky Friday (as far as I know) didn’t transport them to an alternate universe where children are in charge and adults go to school, it made them understand that each of them faced difficulties in the world they already live in.
This video doesn’t do that. It implies that straight people do not have the capacity to imagine being queer in this world as it currently exists, while at the very same time saying that straight people have the capacity to imagine an entire alternate universe in which queer people are powerful and mean to them.
IF YOU DIDN’T GET IN ANYWHERE WE’D ALL BE FORCED TO GO OUT AND START A NEW COLLEGE JUST FOR YOU *hugs*
IT WOULD BE THE COLLEGE OF JOGAN.
WITH CLASSES LIKE “PIANO SEX 101” AND “HOW TO TELL YOUR BEST FRIEND YOU LOVE THEM BEFORE A CRAZY STALKER FANBOY MAKES YOU” AND “TAKING CARE OF YOUR DIVA AND ICE QUEEN WITH DEREK”
AND YOU COULD MAJOR IN SMUT OR IN FLUFF.
AND ONE OF THE ARTS WOULD BE PUPPET-MAKING OF COURSE.
AND YOU COULD LEARN HOW TO ROW A GONDOLA, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S FULL OF CREYS
WAIT CAN THIS BE REAL DO I HAVE TO GO TO REAL COLLEGE OR…
Tumblr won’t let me tag everyone, so I’ll have to make another post with a link that goes to this one, but anyway. Here it is. My big sappy New Year’s Post, because I’m a big sappy sap who saps.
Seriously not liking the way this turned out, but here you go. one Stony fic, special for you, Starkidd. Hope you like it.
Also, welcome back.
Steve was a mess. He put on a good front, obviously. Nobody on the team—not even Tony—had seemed to have even the slightest idea that on the inside, Steve was freaking out.
He had almost watched Tony die today.
Granted, the Avengers came close to death rather frequently, but today, for a single heart-stopping moment, Steve thought Tony was actually going to die.
And Steve thought maybe he’d rather die instead.
They hadn’t even known each other for very long. Their relationship had existed for even less time.
But Steve figured out today—in that gut-twisting moment—that he was head over heels in love.
“Steve?” Tony’s voice was concerned, poking through his haze of thoughts.
The term of endearment startled Steve back into the present. Tony was a mere inches away from Steve on the bed, but in that moment it felt like a mile.
“Steve, are you okay?” Tony prompted again. Steve nodded, reaching his hand under the sheets to catch Tony’s waist and pull him close. Steve needed him to be close.
“I love you.” Steve said quietly. He felt Tony still in his arms, and wondered if he would pull away. Steve closed his eyes, waiting for the loss of contact, but nothing happened. Then suddenly Tony’s mouth was tentatively meeting his.
There was an eternity of silence.
“I love you, too.”
oh my god I just want to let you know something…whenever I see a really freaking GORGEOUS message or something happens that gets my art noticed or someone references me or something I don’t even know but I screen shot it and save it in a folder that I plan to cherish until the end of time. I know I miss A LOT and it KILLS me because I wish I could respond to all of you oh my god but no seriously sometimes I don’t even believe these things are happening to me and holy crap I need to breathe D:
a glimpse at the things in my folder…
For starkiddaltonite, because I saw your rant on my other drabble. xD
When Julian and Logan finally got together, it was a welcome break for Derek. After all the fights, physical and emotional, Logan’s medicine, Julian’s constant leaving, and finally – most importantly – Hell Night, it was what all three of them deserved.
Funnily enough though, with his two best friends off canoodling and revelling in their new-found love in every spare minute, Derek found himself with quite a bit of spare time and no way to fill it. At first he tried throwing himself into his school work and sports, but there wasn’t really much you could improve on when you had a 3.5 GPA and were captain of 2 school varsity teams.
Then, a distraction happened. It was such a distracting distraction that it even managed to break Logan and Julian’s utter dedication to each other’s lips – at least for five minutes. There was a new transfer to Dalton Academy - almost unheard of, halfway through Junior Year.
If Derek had been Logan, he would have said that the new transfer was interesting. But because he wasn’t Logan, he preferred to put it simply: Sebastian Smythe was damn good in bed.
