active spectrum

anonymous asked:

wouldn't muse invert to lord and vice versa?

Inversion is more than the difference on the passive-active spectrum. I have a post about it queued for Monday, but the gist of it is that there is a Passive-Active divide and a Purpose divide. The Passive-Active split goes as such:

Passive - Active

Heir - Witch

Seer - Mage

Page - Knight

Sylph - Maid

Rogue - Thief

Bard - Prince

Muse - Lord

However, there is also a Purpose divide. @classpect-shet‘s post here briefly goes over it, and it goes as such:


- Knight - Thief (Active)

- Page - Rogue (Passive)


- Mage - Witch (Active)

- Seer - Heir (Passive)


- Maid - Prince (Active)

- Sylph - Bard (Passive)

Finding the Active or Passive counter to your class and then finding the opposite Purpose will get you your Inverted class. For example, when Rose went Grimdark, she inverted to a Witch of Void, Witch being the active inversion of Seer and Void being the inversion of Light.

But for the Master Classes, there’s only one purpose: Embody. Here’s where I disagree with their chart. They aren’t fulfilling another purpose, they’re just changing places on the passive-active spectrum. It’s not so much an inversion as it is the difference between Passively embodying their aspect and Actively Embodying their aspect. Calliope doesn’t invert to Caliborn because they both embody their aspect, though one passively and one actively. That’s why there has to be another two classes to find the inversion of a Lord and a Muse; classes that conceal their aspect rather than embody it.

As an alternative to the controversial “Light it up blue” campaign, why not support actual autistic individuals by lighting it up gold.

What It Means To Identify As Non-Binary
"I’m very adamant about making sure people understand that I am somewhere on the spectrum, but I’m not a man and I’m not a woman.”

As the queer community demands room for more nuanced identities beyond the binaries of gay and straight, man and woman, we at The Huffington Post want to let those living such experiences speak for themselves. So we spoke with Jaz Joyner, a person who identifies as non-binary. Joyner, a programming manager at AOL who uses the they/them pronouns, spoke with HuffPost’s Noah Michelson on our most recent episode of “The Spectrum,” a bi-weekly series where we explore diverse identities within the LGBTQ community. 

Joyner explained that being non-binary means not identifying as either male or female. They said they often refer to themselves as “pretty boy,” “femme boy,” “non-binary guy” or “trans person.”


can we stop calling hatred of homosexuals and transgender people a phobia? i think those problems belong more with the -isms, like sexism and racism. somewhere along the way hatred of certain groups stopped being an issue but a fear. in my psych textbook on the chapter about phobias homophobia is listed right up there with arachnophobia and hemophobia, reducing homosexuals to things comparable to spiders and blood. i want that to stop. maybe refer to homophobia as sexualism (which can include asexuality and other variants of the sexual activity spectrum) and transphobia to …something else.
