am i allowed to use this tag

Thank God that Genndy doesn’t use Twitter nor Tumblr ...

Because judging from how volatile some within the fandom are right now, invading the #jashi tag for three straight days with derogatory terms, verbally attacking some of the other members for having different views on the series, throwing a fit over two fictional characters becoming a canon couple I now firmly believe that we reached a level now where it’s worse than the Steven Universe fandom, no small feat I might add.

If no one is aware of what I am referring to, allow me to display this page from Tv Tropes on how far some of their “fans” took it once they allowed their anger at a ship becoming partially canon to cross the line.

Yes, Lauren Zuke had a mental meltdown because people on Tumblr lost their shit over two characters becoming potentially canon and took their anger on her for days. The culprits were from Tumblr.

Now I am less concerned about whether Jack x Ashi is canon or not or of the series in general, I don’t and can’t tolerate this ridiculous behavior of people within the fandom going at each other like entitled children, invading each other’s tags during what is supposed to be their leisure time, the verbal harassment on some of the members that are pouring their hearts on to their artwork of what they enjoy to ship and also now recently going after Phil Lamarr and Tara Strong’s Twitter as well.

Quit invading the #jashi tag with your derogatory shit, stop harassing Tara Strong and Phil Lamarr, and get over yourself about a fictional series and ship.

everything my puzzled american ass knows about eurovision from tumblr

- the logo font is nice

- it’s like american idol but europeans get offended if u compare the two

- australia is there for some reason??

- everyone’s attractive

- europeans get more excited over it than americans do football

- there’s a guy called graham who is presumably a judge?

- ballads. everybody hates them.

- something about ireland and a turkey??

- everything is GAY

- rapping?? and yodeling?? and disco ball star hats?? what even is happening here??

- sometimes there r shirtless men

- apparently english speakers have mostly won for a while and everyone is bitter over that but watches it anyway

- that judge graham guy is really sassy

- really, truly, i have no clue what’s going on anymore

we get it, you’re gay.
my sexuality is not a shirt that I take off at the end of each day, it is not dirty. I do not dress myself in lesbianism just for the fashion perks; homophobia is not in style. i am not a living light switch, I do not turn myself off to solve all your problems, my light will not go out because it’s too bright for you.
we get it, you’re gay.
if I stop talking about it, it will not go away. I would say I am sorry to disappoint but I am not sorry, I am gay, I am very gay and I am not sorry for who I am, I am only sorry that you have a problem with self-liberation and confidence.
we get it, you’re gay.
I can tell when someone is uncomfortable and my sexuality is making you uncomfortable, you are upset that I am comfortable in my own skin, you are upset that I am comfortable with the fact that I love girls and you are uncomfortable about the fact that I won’t shut up. you can’t silence my sexuality, actions speak louder than words.
we get it, you’re gay.
you don’t mind that I’m gay you just don’t want me to be too gay, because being too gay is distracting. you want me to be quiet gay, nice gay, understanding gay, your-gay-friend gay, let-you-get-away-with-everything gay. I can like girls but I’m supposed to whisper that kind of thing, not shout it. the neighbors aren’t supposed to hear.
we get it, you’re gay.
you say you understand, but you’d rather just push it under the rug. it’s okay if I’m gay, but I shouldn’t rub it in your face. you don’t mind, you say, but you can’t help but notice how many people are gay these days and you assume it must be some kind of practical joke. I am not a joke, my life is not some riddle, do you see me laughing? this is not funny.
we get it, you’re gay.
oh, I’m just rebellious, I’ve been told. a rebellious teen confused by the media, so tell me, where is my army? where are my hundreds of thousands of lgbt soldiers, ready to fight this war on love? we stand united but we are not armed, because if we bring the weapons we have guaranteed ourselves a two-minute five o'clock news slot, tragic tragedy, one-more-gay-gone, let’s save the world, let’s save the gays.
we get it, you’re gay.
“lesbians have ruined flannels for me” because the community was supposed to ask for a style after you denied us basic human rights? I’m sorry gay girls have ruined plaid for you, but it never looked too great on you anyway. maybe you should stick to solid colors; if you put too many shades on one shirt, it might look like a rainbow and someone might accidentally think you’re gay. can’t have that.
we get it, you’re gay.
don’t annoy the straights! eyes wide open, avoiding ticking bombs of discrimination, it happens all the time but there’s no way to prepare yourself for hate speech coming from the mouth of your mother or your teacher or your best friend. I bite my tongue to keep from coming out but you’re just so sure that you can trust me, I’ll get it, no offense, no hard feelings, I will understand.
we get it, you’re gay.
I am not going to hit on you, just because I like girls does not mean that I like you, I love myself and I love being gay. do not make my sexuality about you, my life does not revolve around you. I’ve undressed in front of you my entire life but now you insist on changing in the next room. you don’t say it, but I know. I’m not a friend, I’m a predator.
we get it, you’re gay.
you can ramble all day about how that kid in your physics class is just to die for, but the second I mention that a girl in my history class is cute then all eyes are burning holes into my skin. you don’t have to bring your gay with you everywhere, leave it at home most days, it’s too embarrassing to share.
we get it, you’re gay.
I don’t look gay enough, I’ve heard. do I need to carry a sign with me everywhere to broadcast that I Am Not Straight, I am g-a-y gay, rainbows all over my body and in my back pocket, just so you can see?
we get it, you’re gay.
oh, but you tell me that I am not gay I am not gay because I am a girl that likes girls, I can only use the word lesbian. I didn’t know that I erased my name tag and handed it to you, I didn’t know that you were in charge of what I called myself, I didn’t know you were allowed to police my labels; I never asked for your opinions but that never stopped you anyway, do you understand?
we get it, you’re gay.
so, by gay, do you mean really gay or just a little gay? lipstick lesbian, three-way fantasy, am I right? what stereotype would you like to claim, or would you prefer that I choose?
we get it, you’re gay.
truth or dare has always been a death sentence for me, and anyone that says that party games aren’t lethal doesn’t know pure poison, I grew up drinking venom from vodka bottles because alcohol was nothing to a child on the run. so explain to me why I would stop now.
we get it, you’re gay.
in every wedding aisle there’s a “mr.” and a “mrs.” who’s the man in the relationship, they’ll ask us, nothing about us is traditional but they’ll insist we wear white anyway. marriage equality, what else are you fighting for?
I get it, you’re straight.
you’re the cool straight friend. you’re the best straight friend any gay person could ever have, asking for fashion advice and introducing me as your “gay friend.” you say that you have a pretty great gaydar, and you knew all along. do you also know that I want you to shut the fuck up?
I get it, you’re straight.
capital s “Straight,” straight as a telephone pole, straighter than a ruler. so straight and everyone knows without you saying a word because you people are everywhere. you’re on cereal boxes and billboards and in every television show. you’re the main character but we’re just there for a little drama, an episode or two, and then we’re gone.
I get it, you’re straight.
you have never had to come out of the closet because you were never in one to begin with, you own the entire house and didn’t even give us enough room to be. has anyone ever told you how dark and crowded a closet is? it is so hard to breathe with so little space to exist, I’m surprised my thoughts didn’t suffocate me over the years, would you have even noticed?
I get it, you’re straight.
you’re a girl and you like boys, only boys. I mean, everyone experiments in college, right? everyone loves that song, I kissed a girl, because everyone loves just to give being gay a try without the weight of what it really means. it’s not cheating if it’s with a girl, right? right?
I get it, you’re straight.
no homo, bro! holding hands, sharing drinks, making eye contact, it’s not gay, no homo. just two pals being gals, no homo, don’t worry, we’re straight!
I get it, you’re straight.
you have learned how to hate since the moment you were born. no worries, I have been too, but I unlearned heteronormativity so I could fall in love with myself. you preach it every sunday in church and every weekday at work, you learn that serving me is optional, that you can turn me away because you don’t like who I love.
I get it, you’re straight.
lets talk about me as a topic of class discussion, I am the focus of today’s debate, go. argue your stance. do you think this girl at table three should have the right to get married, the right to adopt, the right to buy milk, the right to exist? do you think this girl at table three is just trying to fit in? do you think the girl at table three should be allowed to go to prom? tell me, let’s talk about the girl at table three, no harm done.
I get it, you’re straight.
you are in every book I’ve ever read. the love stories are always about you, how can you expect me to grow up and not feel flawed? these novels teach me to hate who I am, it’s a miracle in and of itself that I’m still here.
I get it, you’re straight.
“there’s a war on straight people,” excuse me? we are just beginning to come out of the shadows because the earth is only now a little less haunted and you have the audacity to say that you are the ones under attack?
I get it, you’re straight.
every step we take is monitored and broadcast for the world to see. you are just a person allowed to make your own decisions but everything I do respresents my entire community and there is no space for me to make mistakes. I am not perfect but I am trying.
I get it, you’re straight.
you say that me being gay is not a big deal to you, it could be anyone, no big deal, not at all. but it’s a big deal to me, this wasn’t an easy thing to say. why should I silence myself, am I overreacting?
I get it, you’re straight.
there’s no rule book for being an ally and sometimes the borders become a little blurred, it’s easy to cross a line. I will help guide you but I will not hold your hand. I cannot always be there to watch the words that trickle out of your mouth, you have to remember that I am a secret.
I get it, you’re straight.
please stop talking about me like I am the latest news story, I am not a headline in big bold font, sometimes I just need a moment to breathe. I have these words printed into my skin just like a newspaper and I’ve never been more black and white.
I get it, you’re straight.
what’s it like to be gay? oh, you know what I mean, so when did you know? which girl turned you gay? why did you lie to us, how many times have you done it with a girl, what about with a guy? how can you be gay if you’ve never done anything? can you ever really know? what if it’s all a phase?
I get it, you’re straight.
the words we identify ourselves by are your insults. they lock us up for holding hands, they criminalize and sexualize our daily activities because they don’t want us corrupting the children. I’ve spent my entire life in an invisible prison with see-through shackles, this is on my permanent record.
I get it, you’re straight.
have you ever considered that my backpack is heavy because I have to carry the weight of your judgment to and from school every day, I have to carry a fire extinguisher in my lunch box because these toxic words are flammable. I might break my back but at least you don’t know.
I get it, you’re straight.
what’s it like to be “normal”? to never have to deal with the undercover I’m-sorry-for-you stares from the kids in the hallway, the I’ll-pray-for you promises spoken by nice ladies in their sunday best?
we get it, you’re gay.
when I’m telling my love story I do not want to lie. I will not censor the pronouns to protect the innocent because my happiness is not guilt-ridden. I am leaving this book open.
—  we get it.

My dear lgbt+ (and questioning) kids, 

If you feel no or little connection to the gender you were assigned at birth, you don’t have to identify as that. 

It’s really that simple. I get many messages and see many posts in lgbt+ tags that state “I’m afab and i feel no connection to being female, am i allowed to identify as nonbinary?” or “I’m amab and i don’t feel like a boy but i’m not sure if i’m allowed to use the term trans.” or similar. 

You are allowed to, my dear. You’re welcome in our community. 

There’s no test to confirm you are officially allowed to identify as trans, nonbinary, agender, genderqueer etc. You don’t need to “prove” that you are not cis. The lgbt+ community is not some kind of exclusive club that only a few chosen ones are allowed to be in. 

You don’t feel like the gender you were assigned at birth? Great, you’re one of us! Welcome, my friend! Feel free to use any label you feel comfortable with, any label that describes how you feel right now. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

Corrupt Your Gemsona Art Event!

On July 23rd, GemsonaResources will be turning two years old! To celebrate, I have decided to host a gemsona event to mark the date. Artwork, literature, animation, and gifs are all allowed!


Prompt: Take one of your already existing gemsonas and create an alternative universe (AU) where they become corrupted. DO NOT use a gemsona that is already corrupted in their story line. This event is to help you get creative and create new story lines for already established characters.


When: July 23rd; 12 am Eastern Standard Time to 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time


Where and how do I send in my work(s)?

Two ways:
1) Post your works on Tumblr, use the hashtag #GRgemcorruption within the first five tags on your post, and tag me @gemsonaresources in the description or the first five tags so I know where to find your works.

2) If you do not have a Tumblr blog or prefer to submit your works on another website (DeviantArt, Twitter, etc), please send me a link to your work through my Submission Box and I will post it onto my Tumblr page.


Are early and late submissions accepted?

Yes and yes! If you are unable to be online on the 23rd, you may send in your work(s) to me early and I will queue them for the date. For late submissions, I will keep checking the #GRgemcorruption tag until July 27th!


Restrictions on Submitted Art and Literature:

-No cursing/swear words
-No blood, gore, extreme violence, or death
-No nudity
-No NSFW/sexual content
-No ships with Steven and/or Connie (or other background characters their age) with any gems (they are minors).

-Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated 
-Canon gems are allowed, but all works MUST have at least one gemsona referenced.
-No roleplay threads


Corrupt Gem Prompts:
-Your gemsona gets corrupted on Earth after the Homeworld gems left (think Centipeetle).
-Your gemsona gets corrupted as punishment for criminal activity on Homeworld.
-Your gemsona gets corrupted after fusing with a corrupted gem (think Jasper).
-Your gemsona manages to get partially healed due to Steven’s healing spit (think Centipeetle). They can either revert back to their full corrupt form, or remain partially healed.
-Your gemsona makes friends with other corrupted gems just like them.
-Your gemsona makes friends with Steven (think Centipeetle).
-Your gemsona meets and makes friends with humans.
-Your gemsona’s main ability becomes emphasized and stronger due to their corruption.
-Your gemsona gains a power/an ability due to their corruption.
-Your gemsona reunites with an uncorrupted gem friend(s) who had/have been searching for them.
-Your gemsona reunites with their gem friends who are also corrupt (think Centipeetle).


**If you have any questions or wish to send in your work(s) early, feel free to send in an ask, fanmail, or chat message to @gemsonaresources​ or @macbeth-macdeath​​ (my main blog)!

New Studyblr!

Hello! I’m new to the studyblr community and decided to make an introduction post. I created this blog two days ago (I think) and wanted to introduce myself even more before school starts (September 5).

My name is MJ/Maddie (either one’s fine), and my native language is English. I’m learning Japanese and Russian right now, so feel free to try and practice with me.

Motivation:

This school year I want to be more productive. It’s my last year in high school so I want to go out with a bang. I want to have a better GPA than I did last year and want to be more participative and be more open in class. Also, I want to become even more proficient and possibly fluent in Japanese and Russian.

Classes I’ll Be Taking:

AP Biology, AP English, AP Psychology, AP Statistics (b/c AP Calc would kill me), Symphony Band, and whatever my elective is (probably Organic Chemistry, 2D Art, or World Cultures).

About Me:

  • I’m 17 years old
  • I’ll be a senior in high school
  • I’m a Slytherin, Thunderbird, and INTJ
  • My favorite subjects will probably be AP Biology, AP English, and AP Psychology.
  • I’m self-taught in Russian and Japanese. (not fluent, but proficient enough depending on the day)
  • My first instrument was the clarinet, and then I became a percussionist. 
  • I am a percussionist at school and play the violin and cello outside of school (no orchestra program at school).
  • My favorite colors are black, red, and white.
  • I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my dominant hand.
  • My drumline instrument (the quads/tenors: four drums put together) weigh 75 pounds. 
  • I want to learn viola and string bass.
  • Anime is basically my (side) life.

Stuff I Love:

  • Tea (black, hibiscus, chai, white)
  • Coffee (iced, lattes)
  • Music (basically my life w/anime)
  • Cookies
  • Japanese Food
  • BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS
  • Drawing and painting
  • Pretty stationary, handwriting, PENS, etc

  • TRANSFORMERS (I’m a geek, I know)
  • Marvel/DC stuff

Things I’ll Be Posting:

  • My class notes and some assignments
  • Bullet journal stuff
  • My progress on my self-taught languages
  • Most likely some book lover stuff
  • Possible pictures of my instruments (they’re my babies)

Some Studyblrs That Inspire Me (there’s so many, oops):

someone has probably said this already but ace discourse is really problematic on so many levels

First of all by creating a whole spectrum of what basically boils down to excuses why they won’t want to have sex is really damaging because it frames sex as something that everyone must want basically always. If you don’t wanna have sex with strangers you’re demisexual if you have a low libido you’re grey or asexual…
It fails to address the fact that you don’t need to have an excuse to not want to have sex. It fails to address the pressure our pornified society puts on people, especially young girls, to have sex early and often. It fails to address the fact that it’s ok to not want to have sex, or not to try certain sex acts. It fails to address the sexualisation of young girls.
Rather than creating this whole spectrum people should talk about the reasons behind the fact that people feel the need to create this while ace spectrum, why girls as young as 16 (or younger) feel the need to identify as ace. Fight against the way porn is influencing our society and children instead of focusing on getting people to accept a whole spectrum about the fact that you don’t wanna have sex.
Furthermore it fails to address that sometimes a low libido is the result of medication or depression.
But especially and this is a personal point for me: It fails to address compulsory heterosexuality and internalised homophobia.
I for one spent years trying to figure out where on the ace spectrum I fit and only radical feminism made me consider that maybe I wasn’t demi/grey but dealing with compulsory heterosexuality and the reason I wasn’t attracted to men and just waiting for the right one was not my demisexuality but rather the fact that I’m a lesbian. Ace discourse offers people like me an explanation that allows us an excuse and rather than help me it obscured what I really needed: help with the realisation that I am not somewhere on the elusive ace spectrum but rather dealing with internalised homophobia and compulsory heterosexuality. It took away years of accepting who I am and I cannot help but think that the young children, especially girls, who come across q***r spaces, will fall into the same trap I did and think of themselves as demi or ace instead of realising that they are homosexual…

I got a lot of people asking me if it’s okay if they repost my art somewhere else, and the answer will always be no. I don’t care if it’s with credit or without. There is no use to discuss it, I simply don’t want it. Some artists have no problem with it, but I am different and it’s my right as an artist to not allow it. I also added it to my describtion, so please stop asking me. I won’t change my mind about it.
If I want it to be somewhere else posted, I will do it myself. 

Thanks for your attention.

(I wrote it in the tags, but if you don’t read them I add it here as well: if you found someone reposting my art [especially on instagram] there is no need to tell me, because I can’t do anything against it, as far as I know. On tumblr it’s different but with instagram I have a lot of trouble and the reposter just don’t give a shit too often. So yeah… to keep the stress level somewhere not too high, please just don’t tell me… I know it’s meant well… but I just don’t have the time to deal with it and it’ll just make me crazy)

Official Danganronpa Re:Birth blog is up

This blog is run by its rightful owner and developer, Miwashiba

Go follow them at https://eipronpa.tumblr.com/!


Full body sprites, half body sprites, pixels, full information, story, etc. can be found on this blog.

However, the whole blog is still in japanese. I have asked permission from Miwa to translate it, since it is still considered as their artwork/creation. However, I’m still in semi-hiatus due to Life’s Responsibilities so I won’t be able to translate that fast. If there is anyone willing to help, please do message me! 


AND, PROBABLY THE MOST ASKED QUESTION:

‘Are we allowed to use, make fanart of, write about, etc., of any of the characters in Danganronpa Re:Birth?’

The answer is: Yes! You definitely can. There are no restrictions. But of course, this should already be obvious but, DO NOT CLAIM THE CHARACTERS AS YOUR OWN CREATIONS! If someone asks if they are your original characters, please tell them they are Miwashiba’s! 

That is all. I hope you guys love this April Fool’s prank by Miwashiba as much as they do!

EDIT: Updated rules on using Miwashiba’s DRRB

((…unfortunately there are no convenient censor bars or sounds in real life, much to Joey and Henry’s dismay. Bendy gets yelled at when he swears, that’s all they can really do.

also, thanks hon! <3))

Please don’t tag as kin/me - Please don’t repost to other websites - Ask Before Dubbing - Please don’t remove caption - Reblogs appreciated! <3 ✮

Voltron Characters as Texts that I have Sent (tag yourself)
  • <p> <b>Shiro:</b> At least some of us were having fun while I was physically restrained<p/><b>Keith:</b> As someone who has actively been stabbed before I think I'm entitled to be nervous about needles<p/><b>Pidge:</b> Even though I was banned from the London Tower of Terror, I got to go to the Museum to see the Rosetta Stone<p/><b>Lance:</b> God I know I'd get fucking hammered<p/><b>Hunk:</b> Exactly how much brute force am I allowed to use to protect you<p/><b>Allura:</b> I'm too damn above average to deal with your shit today<p/><b>Coran:</b> Oh man being listened to what a wild fucking concept<p/></p>

Since I’m going back to classes starting tomorrow I figured I should change around the buttons on my backpack for a new start! Now all of my classmates can see how much of a mystic mess I am! Plus some of my other obsessions This is also why I shouldn’t be allowed to go to anime conventions, I spend so much money… but it’s all worth it! 

 Tag yourself I’m the Yoosung that is way too proud of his little omelette
