all that other stuff

I said this to @adifferentkindofson the other day but all of this baby stuff makes me think of someone trying so hard to fix something they fucked up a long time ago. Imagine you’re baking a cake and you realize once you’ve already put it into the oven that shit, you’ve forgotten the flour. Instead of just realizing that what’s done is done and you can’t fix it, you take out the “cake” and add flour to the baking mess, hoping against hope that this will help you and that you’ll have the cake you intended to have in the first place. Except of course it doesn’t work because you’ve already missed a crucial step and no amount of flour or anything else can fix what you’ve done. 

That’s what they’re doing with this baby mess. They’re trying so hard to make it look convincing now when they should have put actual effort into it months ago. It’s too late now. It doesn’t matter what they do, we’re not going to forget all of the shadiness of 2015 just because a few more things have been thrown at us. That’s not how any of this works. You either get it right the first time or you fail.

Could you imagine how deep in the shit everyone would've been if everything had gone according to plan and RWBY didn't set off the train before the tournament? Like seriously, when Cinder planned for Beacon to fall she was trying to be as thorough as possible.

Damn, you’re right

there was supposed to be a train crash while all this other stuff happened too

Cinder wtf is your deal

when youve been on tumblr for as long as i have (6 yrs) you get to see the pattern of edits. like when i first got on it was SUPER heavy vibrance. like, orange vibrace. then it was color spam where it was neon colors all contrasting each other. then it was super crisp hq stuff and now its the dark gray/grainy stuff like whats next who knows find out in the next few months 

Why is underwear so expensive? I bought 3 bras in a 3-for-2 deal, and bam, 120+ euros gone. I mean, they’re nice to look at and keep by boobs from flapping around too much, but why do they cost so much?

Starter call

OKAY NERDS. Going to focus mainly on love ball stuff tonight and will get around to all the other stuff later. So like this for a starter - default will be Grimmy, but toss an IM/ask if you’d rather interact with Conrad.

Then again I’ll probably write one for Con if he’s interacted with your character before, too.

They’re also gonna be short and fast. Don’t expect too long paragraphs from these. :>

Also will have both character floating around in the RP streams etc. o/ And as of right now both Conrad and Grimmy have no ‘dates’. So they’ll pretty much dance with anyone who asks - one more so than the other.

so @yourfavoritedirector got some super cool shots of misha at the petal drop LA event, and there was something that really caught my eye about them. i decided to do a quick little study of a frame! ❁´‿`❁*✲゚*

funny story

when i was younger, i played a lot of club penguin and was a member on and off with a lot of neat clothes and furniture and stuff. i don’t know if people on that site still pretend to be dating other penguins, but back in my day, we would all ask each other out and pretend to go on dates and stupid stuff like that. i would dress up as a girl with a wig and clothes and ask other penguins dressed as guys if they wanted to date, and if they said yes, i’d invite them to my igloo and quickly change into boy clothes and wigs and when the other person got there, i would say things like “who are you” and “get out of my igloo” until they got freaked out and left

It’s like this every day. Every day.

hello lottie, i need some advice. so i've identified as bisexual for about a year now, but i've only dated guys so far. recently, someone suggested that the reason none of my relationships w guys have worked out well might be bc i'm actually not interested in men, and i'm a little stumped. have you ever struggled with knowing whether you're attracted to people of a certain gender/what that means for your identity? do you have any advice? thanks a bunch, love u, xx

oh god, YES. constantly. ALL THE TIME. 

I like to call what you’re having a BISEXISTENTIAL CRISIS™. generally mine go like this: lie in bed thinking about marrying Kristen Stewart. swear, hand-to-heart, that there is no one else for me on this good earth, except maybe Clea DuVall. realise that, if I’m being completely honest with myself, I can only ever imagine ending up with a woman. sit bolt upright. gasp. whisper, “am I… a lesbian?” wonder what this means for my bisexual sideblog. panic for a few seconds. grab my phone and google “Chris Evans beard”. scroll. realise I am definitely not a lesbian. lie down. chuckle. go to sleep. repeat every 6-8 weeks.

my advice (to myself, every day) is generally just “ROLL WITH IT”, which I know is about as useful as nipples on a breastplate, but honestly, what else am I SUPPOSED to advise myself? I am a goddamned MESS re: romantic/sexual attraction and that ever-swinging GENDER PENDULUM. (although, it’s less a pendulum and more that game with the tennis ball on the string that you smack back and forth around the pole. SMACK! boys. SMACK! girls. SMACK! everyone. SMACK! anyone the slightest bit feminine, regardless of gender identity. SMACK! Oscaar Isaac and absolutely no one else, for about three weeks now.)

I think the thing that we all forget is that a) except in the Representation Is Important and Young Queer People Should See Themselves Reflected Both in Popular Culture and in Their Idols way, IT DOESN’T ACTUALLY MATTER THAT MUCH, and b) YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL PEOPLE SHIT. whenever I’m in the throes of a Bisexistential Crisis™ that lasts longer than googling Chris Evans’ beard, I tend to gently remind myself that absolutely no one is going to come banging on my door in the next ten minutes DEMANDING to know EXACTLY how I identify, who I’m attracted to, and how. I don’t have to update my CV with my sexuality. there’s no deadline on Figuring Things Out! everything is okay! I can keep changing my mind for the next 60 years! who even cares?!

so yeah, my advice is pretty much “ROLL WITH IT”, with a side of “have a deep chat with yourself, on and off, for the rest of your life”. maybe you’re sexually attracted to some genders and romantically attracted to others. maybe it overlaps a bit in the middle. maybe you don’t have a clue and you’re just gonna have to keep touching dicks to find out. maybe you’ll never touch another dick in your life. maybe you’ll touch TEN MORE DICKS! who knows, not me, life is a journey, the past is a statement, the future is a question, enjoy.

A few less-popular cartoons’ progressiveness.

Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero, has featured three kids with equal roles in their career. Has shown two of the main male characters say they love each other (without adding any “no homo” junk). Have a female and male character at an equal level of friendship of the first males (she’s also a main character), without any romantic tension. Many of the female characters on this show have diverse body types and characterization. They once had two minor characters get married with the woman proposing to the man.

Wander Over Yonder (created by Craig McCracken, who you may know for creating the PowerPuff Girls), shows how helping and accepting anyone leads to positive relations and outcomes. Has two main characters who are female and male, who have one of the closest bonds I’ve ever seen, and they have no romantic tension at all. The main character Wander, is constantly helping others and loving and accepting of everyone because he just knows its the right thing to do. Even the person who keeps trying to kill him he holds no ill-will to.

Star VS the Forces of Evil, showcases a female protagonist who is incredibly out-going and self-secure. She’s really silly but can fight when need-be. Her best friend Marco is always at hand (think Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable, only not as much “romantic tension”). The show really gives the vibe of just being yourself to kids, and the same idea that Earth (where the main character isn’t from), is this wonderful place with people, where you’re free to do whatever (which is another lesson Steven Universe has been showing).

Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, has two teenage protagonists that act pretty much like that; teenagers. It’s one of the most accurate portrayals I’ve seen of kids entering high school. Because of this, they’re not very clever, and get into plenty trouble considering they’re trying to protect the world. This show lets kids know it’s okay to make mistakes (LOTS of them…), but never give up no matter the odds.

Clarence, has shown multiple characters with different family settings, including divorced parents, poor house-holds, and even same-sex couples. The main character even has a single mother who is dating someone who he very much admires as a parental figure. Another of the main characters has OCD who has two mothers, and the other lives with a family of 12 siblings. The first time I watched the series I found it incredibly relatable from multiple character’s perspective. Not to mention the array of body types for both children and adults.

The first 4 shows air on DisneyXD which Disney has said is targeted at pre-teen boys (though the staff on this show might say otherwise, Disney is targeting the channel at young boys), which makes these shows even more important, since we have a show staring a female as the main character, multiple series that show it’s okay to be opening loving, and accepting, and so-on, being shown to young boys.

Just because a series isn’t the most popular thing out there, doesn’t mean it’s not progressive.

And not every progressive thing needs to be mind blowing, because sometimes a kid just needs to be shown a cartoon character that has the same family-structure as them, or that it’s okay to make huge mistakes without being the end of the world, or that they can tell their friends they love them without it being romantic, or that it’s okay to be nice even if someone else isn’t, and that it never hurts to help.

Hey, Middle America loves and adores Beyonce... until she dares suggest that cops killing unarmed black guys all the time is more than a bit fucked up.

Hey, a black woman can entertain you with her cool songs and sex appeal and TWERKING~! and all that other stuff.  “Oh,  wow. Look at her butt!” 

But God forbid she brings up a valid political issue about police corruption. 

Just saying: Certain people only like Beyonce until the point she stops being convenient and sexy for them.
