“When people call you a ‘snowflake’ just remember they’re quoting Fight Club, a satire written by a gay man about how male fragility causes men to destroy themselves, resent society, and become radicalized, and that Tyler Durden isn’t the hero, but a personification of the main character’s mental illness, and that his 'snowflake’ speech is a dig at how fascists use dehumanizing language to breed loyalty from insecure people.
So basically people who say 'snowflake’ as an insult are quoting a domestic terrorist who blows up skyscrapers because he’s insecure about how good he is in bed.”
The new comers: Guys HALP! Why are they slapping each others’ butts?
The inspectors: Yes judging from his shadow it is Jimin in the BS&T era and judging from V’s Gucci slippers it was taken the second week of december of last year #TrueStory.
theorists: They sold their souls to the evil to understand BIGHIT’s Bullsh*t.
The fanwar soldiers: Don’t start an argument with them, they have loads of clap-backs ready and are as savage as yoongi.
The shippers: “OMG their pinky fingers touched ME DEAD”. they gathered more proof about their ship than the FBI would ever.
The aristocrat: No I am not like those basic, crazy fangirls. *She/He is*.
The bias ho*s: Changes a bias on every comeback, but no one can blame her… We have loads of those btw
The content makers: The last time they slept was when BTS had a hiatus aka never.
The promoters: If you are a liiittle bit known in the interweb. Don’t you EVER DARE use the word “BTS” or your comment section will turn into “You should check BTS out, they are very talented, they can sing and dance, plz collab …”.
The broke: Considers water a meal after spending all the money on anything BigSnake throw at them.
feed their passion through fancams and salty tears.
The delusional: If I was in korea my bias would have fallen for me. *flips hair*. “Beach he is taken” said the shippers.
The youtubers: React to BTS mainly for views but tell us they are fans.
The FAKE fans: If you see “I used to like BTS but …” It is them. Stay away! the fanwar soldiers will take care of them.
The dancers/singers: They shoot vdeos everywhere and it turns out either super cool or super cringy. there is no in between
The seasonals: They know two things about BTS: their names and main tracks. They appear twice a year when BTS have a comeback.

The fansites: If you see someone with a latter and a high definition camera that can probably shoot the aliens on Mars running in an airport. It is them! Their favorite color is white as they looooove turning BTS into A4-white papers.
The basic fans: Are here mainly for the music/dancing. Always educating and judging all the above. They start all their sentences by “DON’T … because *insert BTS human rights*”
I hope I didn’t forget anyone ^^ Gotta love our fandom! By @mimibtsghost
So I caved and finally got a tablet… and of course, the first thing I draw is @therealjacksepticeye (obviously because he is awesome psshhhh :D )
This whole thing was inspired by a Spyro kigurumi I saw while browsing the interwebs and thought that would be perfect considering I loved Jack’s playthrough of Spyro so much! (it’s seriously a great LP, go check it out)
There is a story going around the interwebs about a pair of professionals who traded their electronic signatures for a few weeks and about how the male then discovered that the female was treated differently and about how hard women have it in the professional world.
It reveals how much trouble women have being taken seriously as experts. On anything. In reading the comments left on this story, I discovered the same sad narrative in nearly every one. Women, strong, intelligent women, were doubted at every step, on a daily basis, because no one believed they could possibly know what they were talking about.
Reading through these stories I thought, well, at least that doesn’t happen to teachers. As women in a traditionally female field, we are less likely to be immediately doubted when we speak, less likely to be dismissed purely because we are female.
Until it hit me.
The whole teaching profession is constantly being asked to see its manager. The whole profession is constantly being doubted. The whole profession is seen as being ill-informed. Teachers are never seen as experts. We are regarded as something between babysitters and lazy, spoiled whiners, who just want our summers off.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Teaching is seen, by in large, as a feminine pursuit. And as such, teachers, while well-educated, well-trained, and well-read, are seen as less PROFESSIONAL and worthy of respect than our counterparts in other fields. When people DO praise teachers it is often with the kind of nostalgic affection reserved for things which are cute and sweet, not with the kind of respect given to others in other, more male dominated fields.
Everyone thinks they know what is best for education. Education policy, education critique, education reform: all are dominated by a kind of condescending man-splaining which would be abhorrent and vilified were it not accepted as the status quo.
Watch the video of the president signing his nomination for Betsy DeVos. He says, “Betsy…education, right?” like it could be any little honorarium he is throwing to any billionaire with a checkbook. Because education doesn’t need to be overseen by an expert. It is just women’s work. Put a nice, grandmotherly looking, well-coiffed lady in charge and it’ll be all good.
And when I have spoken out against this (and I have pretty much not stopped doing so for awhile now) people have pointed out to me that you do not need to have been a teacher to run a the Department of Education.
Really? Why? Because the base assumption is that teachers do not really understand big, important things like running a government bureaucracy. Our only purvey is the classroom, which like the home is to be paid respectful lip service, but not to be seen as a venue for real work.
I have had WOMEN, whom I LOVE, say things to me about educators like, “He is trying to run a company and she is worried about pipe cleaner art. Not really the same thing.”
The whole problem with the way our country talks about teachers is that, by in large, we are seen as a group of women, and therefore, the work we do is not seen to be really that challenging. There are whole books and television shows dedicated to the idea that a man, having excelled in another field, can stop by a classroom for a short period, for the purpose of entertainment or self-gratification, and somehow this is okay. No one thinks this about courtrooms or operating theaters.
