My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!
(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)
shout out to people who have really morally wrong intrusive thoughts! people who know those things are wrong and can’t stop thinking about them, people who are disgusted by themselves. you aren’t disgusting! those thoughts aren’t you and you can’t control them! it’s ok, you’re a good person.
Growing up as a Hindu I’ve always admired Vishnu for his kindness, charisma, beauty, mysteriousness, and fluidity of gender and expression. I’ve never properly sat down and drawn him, so here he is today, with somewhat of a modern aesthetic twist I suppose.
tumblr has a sad-boner for the burning of the library of alexandria
which was not actually one burning but several
and while the Library of Alexandria was an immense historical and national treasure, a lot of ppl tend to forget about the other book and library burnings that occurred in antiquity
Places like the library of Nalanda, in India, which contained an elaborate classification system to hold what was then seen as the largest collection of Buddhist literature
and the House of Wisdom in Baghdad, which contained Greek and Arabic works on mathematics and astronomy to zoology and cartography
and more recently, the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (no, that does not mean sexual witchcraft) which was burned by the Nazis b/c the majority of tomes dealt with same sex relationships and gay rights and acceptance.
and omg, this makes me so mad. The Libraries of Fisheries and Oceans in Canada has all its collection thrown away in an attempt to save taxpayer money and on the hope that all of its material was digitized. Only 5 to 6% was.
and the Saeh library in Lebanon, which was burnt b/c of terrorism.
-People who share other people’s content on their blog
-Reposters who ask for permission and share artwork from other sites
-Heck, also the people who create just simple funny text posts
-Mods running blogs
…of the fandom!
I probably sound cheesy as heck but I seriously want to thank people for creating content and also spreading content by reblogging or liking things and showing your appreciation.
It’s all valuable!
“It was just one of those articles where they came into my home, spent a couple days with me, and [fiancee] Amanda [Clifton] is a huge part of my life. So to leave her out wouldn’t have made any sense. It’s not a coming out article or anything. I’ve been with her for a very long time now.“

so i have no idea if this is normal?? but as a ftm trans headcanons making people trans just make me kind of uncomftorable?? and of course there's nothing wrong with the headcanons, i have nothing against them [ they're pretty cool ] but you're the smartest person i know about sexuality and this has kind of been freaking me out for the past couple weeks
OH that’s so weird you brought this up because i was just thinking about something like this last night. first off, i have no idea if this is a particularly common thing? if it is, i haven’t seen anyone post on it - but at the very least, i get where you’re coming from. so while i can’t give you generalized advice on this subject, i can give you my own personal experience in the topic
a while ago (and even nowadays whenever i have Bad Days), i used to be sort of in the same boat? and it really, REALLY got to me, because i had no idea why trans headcanons made me feel so uncomfortable when i wasn’t even cis myself, yknow??
it took me a REALLY long time to realize that the discomfort i felt was from dysphoria, and even then, i was still kind of upset?? because hcs generally make me feel more included and comforted but that just wasn’t the case in this situation, which i think may be because i experience dysphoria really, really frequently (i look/sound traditionally feminine, i guess, and i still go my birth name - i get misgendered all the time) and seeing that represented in things (even if the content wasn’t dysphoria-driven?) made me reflect on my own feelings and it just wasn’t a good situation. it’s an ongoing process, tho, because i’m slowly but surely overcoming all of that.
idk if it’s dysphoria specifically in your situation, tho! it took me a super long time to recognize that it came from that in the first place,,does any of that sound familiar? i dont even know if other ppl have experienced the same thing or if its just a me thing @__@ i hope i helped somehow..???
anyway i don’t know what y’all’s motivations in voting in these things are but if it’s just your love for malec then i don’t really think that’s enough tbh so i propose what seems to me to be the best fuel and driving force and that’s anger. pls get angry that magnus being a bisexual asian man is a too unique and too important character to be overlooked like this (again), or get angry that poc in shadowhunters fandom have to watch malec, an interracial couple, losing to a white ship for the second year in a row, or be angry because ev//ak, as wonderful as they are, being a new white couple, never should have become so much more popular then the already well-known and interracial malec in such a short time, because none of this is a coincidence and it’s not fair and we shouldn’t just be satisfied with whatever ship wining just because they are both m/m and we still have hours before the poll closes and we can win this so pls
