Just wanted to let you all know - I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been getting inbox spam lately - starts with ‘hi’ or similar and if you reply you quickly end up with a request for photos or private chat. They have blogs with nothing on, fairly nondescript urls and a selfie of a young woman as their avatar.
I wanted to give my advice for younger/vulnerable people on here, so I hope you’ll forgive me sounding like your mum.
Here’s my suggestion, if you get a message from someone you don’t know and who isn’t following you, with an empty blog:
Don’t reply to the message.
Mark it as spam if you want to - I’ve started doing that.
Don’t ever send pictures of yourself.
Don’t feel pressured into chatting with someone you don’t know or sharing anything personal.
I have no clue what the gain is for people doing this but I guess they are hoping people will get talked into sharing images.
Stay safe. If you’re not sure something is a good idea, it probably isn’t - trust your instinct. If you feel uncomfortable, stop. Ask someone in real life that you trust - a parent, a responsible adult..
Look after yourselves and avoid nonsense.
So… what does this mean? I’m not sure about other countries, but the agency of health in Canada has deemed borax unsafe, and recommends that it should not be used for children’s arts and crafts, especially including slime.
CRAP I’VE USED THIS STUFF CRAP CRAP WILL I DIE?No, you won’t. This is just an advisory, and it’s prolonged exposure that isn’t healthy for kids or expecting women. Just don’t use it from now on.
Well, how else will I make my slime?There are so many other liquid starch based and plasticine based recipes out there that work just as well, if not better! I’ll make a masterpost of some soon.
BE CAREFUL FRIENDS, SLIME SAFE, AND SLIME HAPPY!
******Even if you aren’t an avid tumblr slimer or slime account, boosting this would be much appreciated!
Okay so before I got my proper binder I had (stupidly) experimented with other methods of binding. At the time I thought they were fine because I didn’t know what a proper binder and safe binding felt like. So here’s a list of things binding should NOT feel like:
- Tingling pains across the breasts
- Feeling like you need to breath really hard to push out the binder when exhaling
- Dull or severe constant or semi-constant ache in breasts
- Feeling out of breath more than normal
- Mild or severe nipple irritation
- Back pain from the pressure of the binder
If you experience two or more of these while binding for less than 6 hours at a time, then it’s almost certainly too tight or not a safe method. (of course binding varies from person to person but this was my experience).
Victims of bullying and abuse, five LGBT friends between the ages of 14 and 22 decided to defend themselves. The members of Check It sport knives, brass knuckles, and mace in stylish Louis Vuitton bags in hopes of keeping themselves (and their gang family) safe. Now an investigative feature-length documentary (aptly titled Check It) further explores what might be the only all-LGBT gang in the United States, following the members’ journey from a turbulent D.C. toward entrepreneurship.
If you see this behavior, stop it immediately. I don’t like to preach a lot, but we need to understand personal space both in person and over the web. Don’t call Mark daddy. Don’t threaten to touch him. Don’t threaten to kiss him. He doesn’t enjoy it, he has said it makes him uncomfortable, and it’s wrong.
If you want to make fan art in “that sense” then don’t tag him or let it be known in any of the Markiplier tags. That content is purely for your enjoyment but it does NOT extend to Mark or the fans in real life; that stuff is to remain online and out of sight to anyone not interested. Mark is not a fantasy, he’s not a god, he’s not a toy. He’s a human being.
And this goes for all other YouTubers as well. They are people, not play things. This activity and behavior is harassment and is illegal. If it were being done to a female, tumblr would be all over that shit. It’s not about gender or lack thereof; it’s about common sense. Be mature and be courteous.

Stay strong and stay awesome,
Water contamination in Flint, Mich., — where the city decided to switch water sources, causing pipe corrosion and ultimately filling the city’s water supply with high levels of lead — has prompted President Obama to declare a state of emergency.
The move, which was requested by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, means FEMA is authorized to provide equipment and resources to the people affected. Federal funding will help cover the cost of providing water, water filters and other items.
