-re-gifted a fucking aligator to President John Quincy Adams cause he didn’t know what the fuck to do with it

-wanted to go kill the Beast of Gévaudan (some big scary people-eating wolf that scared the shit out of the french at the time) by himself at like 6 years old

-actually bought an entire island full of slaves with his wife Adrienne and freed them all, gave them money for the work they did, gave them education

ok lol i'm not trying to be racist but i'm pretty sure BP's going to be a huge flop even though a lot of people are going to watch it. wakanda is such an unrealistic country and I cringe every time i saw something from the trailer. in what world does a tiny third world country be more technologically advanced than any other??? this movei is honestly just Marvel's attempt at trying to be progressive and capitalizing on the "diversity' putting a whole bunch of blacks in a movie will bring

If you have to put “I’m not trying to be racist” before a message, heads up…you’re probably being racist. 

You think that a country in Africa can’t be technologically superior because it’s small and has literally no outside influence? Wakanda is the largest source of vibranium there is, which makes the country very wealthy. Adding on to that, Wakanda has a young and brilliant princess who designs technology to rival or even beat Tony Stark’s. Wakanda has a king who is one of the eight smartest people on earth. This kind of intelligence and wealth can do anything. So yeah, I’d say they don’t need any help being more technologically advanced than any other country. 

If the idea of a successful African country, and the idea of black children having a black superhero represented on the big screen causes you pain, then yeah, you’re racist.

Also a side note: you’re talking about a universe where a man can turn into a giant green rage monster, so I would really reevaluate your idea of what’s “unrealistic.”

Riot ensues.

So after the seven years war some British troops who were in charge of surveying and inventorying abandoned french forts, found stockpiles of American made supplies. You can expect a very broke England who just fought a very long war wouldn’t take to kind to know that American’s were selling to both sides.

 Also before the stamp act the other taxes that England imposed on America really weren't all that bad like the sugar tax actually went from 0.06 cents to 0.03 cents. The only difference was England actually started enforcing the tax hardcore instead of allowing the American courts who were pretty leadeant about the whole thing. 

The stamp act became an issue because newspapers printers and lawyers use a lot of paper and there the last people you want to piss off lol.

BTS is one of those artists that had to climb their way up to where they are now and watching them grow into these incredibly talented artists who make music that inspire and even heal a lot of people makes me really proud and grateful to be a fan. They are quite frankly, the epitome of the expression: “From Zero to Hero”.

I never thought I’d see the day they’d have their names on those seats…it was really beyond what any ARMY expected (though I always believed they were meant for greater things). Once again, BTS showed us NOTHING is impossible with hard work, faith, and passion. 😉 With this, they continue to be an inspiration to not just their fans but even the music industry as a whole–especially to other aspiring artists.

lol I feel like a mom whose sons are having their graduation. 😂😭 But I can’t help it. I’m just so proud 😭❤

Reblog to show your love for BTS!

I went to the website that had all those B pap pics and searched the tag "Louis Tomlinson" and looked at his pap pics, guess what i found? Pap pics of D tangled up with a dude leaving Crique Le Soir after Louis' TXF performance. He refused to hold D's hand and held Lottie's hand and got papped with her instead, but d felt so left out and desperate for attention that she was clinging into other dude and he had his arms around her (looking and smilint directly at the camera) LOL

i’m CRYING, those aren’t just any dudes (there are two).. one of them is annas the club promoter and one of them is simon jones YIKES. not that it matters a whole lot now but it’s.. interesting that these weren’t circulated at the time hahaha

that really happens to you? at pride? you'd think people would understand the whole one has to be masculine the other has to be feminine thing is bullshit. I'm sorry.

the lgbt+ community isn’t perfect. whenever ducky dresses more masculine the waiter gives her the check, when i dress more masculine i remember being told I was the man of the relationship (by a gay male), when we both dress femme people think we’re sisters, and when we both dress masculine people are surprised we’re together & we get the question how does our sex work (which like ? lol don’t worry about it? people are so nosy) And i get a lot of this type of talk is queer people kiking with one another - i know there’s that element. but beneath the talk there’s a clear idea that there is just a binary and while that may be applicable to some queer couples, queer people as a whole are inherently much more complex and to stick us in boxes of roles inhibits us as a community I feel.

I'm sad you finished the Bokuroo week, you draw them so rarely now and I just miss my boys so much

anon please don’t try to guilt trip me into drawing more bokuro that’s kinda very rude I realize no one really reads tags so I’m gonna just say it here again - as I mentioned before, this period is really damn busy for me because for whatever reason all my fandoms and ships have decided to hold their ship weeks all together in the span of 20 days and I’m a sucker for this kind of events which means I wanna participate in everything and end up being unable to put actual effort in everything else for a while

THAT SAID how productive I am with a specific ship depends a lot on how much they’re appearing in the main story (currently in the bokuros’ case it’s a very pretty round zero), how responsive/respectful the fandom is when I do post about them (the bokuro fandom is amazing!!! Everyone around it that still keeps on trying to make it about other ships and turn my art into something it’s not supposed to be, not so much) and how much content for said ship I can consume through the fandom/how easily accessible it is (there’s very little content for bokuro in general and try and look for stuff in the tags it’s all about other ships/ot3s or ot4s/unrequited or past-relationship/tagged-but-only-as-brotp)

I really, really, really love that ship a whole damn lot still, trust me, but when I have so little inspiration coming from anything that could give it to me and at the same time I got other ships making me super creative, I’m naturally bound to produce less for it. I’m not abandoning it, I’m just asking you to be patient when my creativity doesn’t happen to be focused on them for a while

What do others mean when they claim Scorpio venus' are intense people?

lol that we are intense!

We just have a whole lot of love to give. With Scorpio, there is no middle ground. There are only extremes. There is no causal or just for fun. There is commitment and boundaries and expectations.

With a lot of Scorpios, it’s all or nothing. They say and do dramatic things. They experience love and other emotions very intensely, and so they must release these emotions. They’re like volcanoes.

Scorpio venuses are the type to
-only have one crush every 3 years
-obsessively daydream about that crush
-fantasize their entire life with that crush
-probably won’t make a move with that crush for two years, then be rejected, then spend the next year still pining after them
-make vows or promises to their partner
-demand their partner make similar promises
-demand a lot of attention and validation

Guess who’s really deep in Sonic Hell and made a Sonic OC in celebration to Sonic Forces. Hi >w> Yo it’s been like a decade since I ever made a legit Sonic OC so uh. yeah. 

So this is Peaches, his personality is still in the works so I don’t have too much knowledge on how he is yet, but I do have some tiny bits about him! 

-Giant Sonic fanboy. Inspires to be a helpful individual like Sonic and just wants to be a good person!! Uses the whole ‘what would sonic do’ quote to inspire himself to do the right thing. 

-Incapable of feeling pain. He gets covered in bandaids and bandages often due to being a rather reckless boy. He also has difficulty understanding other people in pain… This subject confuses him greatly for obvious reasons lol. 

-Acrobatic and loves parkour. You can find him jumpin around on rooftops, trees and whatever else he can climb and hop off of. Due to this very thrilling hobby, he does get hurt a lot and doesn’t notice it (PLEASE WATCH HIM, HE NEEDS SUPERVISION)

-Parents divorced soon as he and his sister moved out to their own place. He felt this comin but his sis didn’t. They’ve both been taking it pretty hard and their own relationship is pretty rocky due to his sister being rather overbearing and him not empathetic enough (he’s not as understanding with his family for a multitude of reasons, I may change this tho vwv). 

-Doesn’t wear pants, only big shirts. His spandex shirt and a big ol letterman jacket is his usual get up, otherwise, BIG SHIRTS N SWEATERS!

SO YAAAAH <3

anonymous asked:

do u agree with any parts of radical feminist theory?

That depends a lot on what you consider radical feminism, but many of its core tenets, yes, although I don’t agree with all of them (for instance, I think gendered socialization of children is important and needs discussing to not erase the reality of loads of little girls, but it needs to be understood socially as literal abuse and grooming for heterosexual relations later in life, and while boys typically make it through childhood with a better self image a lot of the socialization of boys is emotional abuse meant to detach them from their emotions, make them afraid to cry, make them cruel and angry, etc- that’s not the problem of every woman a man encounters and he’s still responsible for his actions but the idea that being raised with the intention of shaping you into a man is itself a privilege is the worst possible understanding of socialization, and if socialization affected everyone the same way all women would be timid and hate themselves and lack confidence and be afraid to take up space and speak out, which many women, including myself, are not at all, so this idea of socialization determining who you will be is silly and foolish; I think it is important to acknowledge that gender is a set of material relations, and your place within it is determined by your life chances, relationship to patriarchy, your paycheck, your race, and your sex or at least your perceived sex regardless of your identity, but I think misgendering people to point that out is needlessly cruel when many, say, afab nonbinary identified people who are not gnc will acknowledge that to some extent; I think worshipping at the altar of sex is as foolish as worshipping at the altar of gender identity) and every single woman who uses that term for herself means something slightly different by it.

If you’re talking the works of Dworkin, Wittig, and hooks then I love the body of work. If you’re talking Daly and Jeffreys, it’s a trash ideology composed of half truths, weird hatred of gnc people and trans people who often share the literal same life experiences as in Jeffrey’s absurdly homophobic claims about feminine gay men, and an oddly mystical understanding of sex for a feminism which claims to be solidly materialist. Either way the body of work is quite different from the ideology of the women who now carry its torch- not all of them are hateful, but a great many of them are, and many also have no set of broad politics outside of radical feminism, which it needs to stabilize and make sense of it- for instance, gender can be a biological category or a class category, but it cannot be both, and because classes are never, ever naturally occurring from a Marxist perspective, it makes no sense to say Buck Angel, or even a trans guy who lives 100% stealth, is in the same class wrt gender as I am, even though trans guys who don’t pass all the time or aren’t out and I have more experiences in common than not imo. I don’t think finding community on the basis of shared experiences wrt sex is necessarily evil- loads of trans men I’ve talked to long for social circles of gnc cis women, not cis dudes, because they can’t relate to them- but community and class are not the same. My neighborhood is a community. It is not a material class in itself.

So I agree with a lot of it, but without a broader analysis it falls apart pretty easily, just like liberal feminism makes no real sense outside of the logic of liberalism generally. Gender is either naturally occurring along the lines of sex, or a class under radical feminism. You have to pick one. The bourgeoisie is not naturally occuring, neither is whiteness, and I would say that neither is womanhood in a meaningful (more than biological) sense. If we aim to abolish womanhood we need to aim to abolish what gender actually is, a set of relations constraining the liberation of women and recreating the class of men just like capitalism constrains the liberation of the proletariat (who exist ONLY in relation to it) and creates the class of the bourgeois. I can’t imagine trying to justify to Dworkin why I thought “woman = adult human female” was the basis for like, solid political movement outside of stuff where sex is primary like sex selective abortions, abortion access, reproductive rights (though trans people being able to both transition and have kids is part of reproductive justice), access to education for girls (and again, a gnc boy for instance will have lots of barriers to education, like bullying and sexual harassment), but that stuff doesn’t encompass the whole of feminism and feminist action.

This is long but idk, it is to settle the record lol since there is lots of conjecture on every side about my gender politics. For this a lot of people suspect I secretly hate trans people and a lot of other people suspect I secretly hate women for talking about stuff like menstrual stigma as a women’s issue. Neither is true. Anyway all of this is why I call myself a Marxist feminist, because my politics are primarily Marxist and I approach feminism through the same ideological framework.

How do you draw face shapes? I was trying to achieve the semi-realistic look like yours but always get too small or deformed chins, not enough space for the eyes, like I have no freedom to draw what's inside.

semi-realistic ajkhsdflkjahsdflkajhdsf ummm ok like so here’s the basics i keep in mind: 

1. you start with a circle. I’m sure you’ve seen something like this before: 

That way, the head has enough space for the eyes and other features. 

2. Placing the ears helps to draw the jaw and the chin. The ears start at the top of the eyes, and end at the bottom of the nose. The nose differs in length depending on what kind of character you’re drawing, but this is usually how I place my noses: 

3. The chin intersects just a little bit under the lips. make sure u have like, space for the chin. here’s how i usually do it: 

4. For the chin, Try to make sure it’s not pointy like dorito face XD : 

Examples: 

5. And uhh…well. Add the rest of the details. ^^; 

Keep in mind, it’s okay to go off your sketch a little bit or even a whole lot if you notice mistakes and adjustments you can make that will make the drawing look more pleasing to the eye. Is this drawing of mine perfect? No, not really. Is it anatomically realistic? HELL NAWWWW son. 

Chins and face shapes are hard to get down. lol some people have wider jaws, others more narrow, some longer or shorter. It depends on what kind of character you’re drawing. Keep in mind their weight, their age and their gender. :) I’m sorry I kinda suck at this I’m not that expert ;; 

to keep me happy i made a list of good things in KC

• mare and cal’s reunion! the ACTUAL reunion after the whole mind-control situation
• mare’s dad can now walk!! i almost cried tbh
• the guard has made tons of progress with the new bloods (called “ardents”) and made allies (even if i’m a little iffy about some of them still)
• mare and cal have sex????? and like it’s so random which makes it so real imo
• and then they do it a lot
• A L O T (waking up together and mare talking about cal’s nakedness and “heat” and “exertion” lol ok mare we all know what that means)
• baby clara ♡♡♡
• meeting the other people with mare’s power and i loved the whole matching-hair-colour-to-lightning-colour thing
• (even if they did kind of baby her)
• training scenes
• FULL-OF-SEXUAL-TENSION TRAINING SCENES
• the fight and mare and cal both being stubborn and not giving in it was actually super intense i loved it

add your own as well!!

also i’ll be posting my reaction notes from chapter 23 till the epilogue later, and those were more in-the-moment. keep an eye out!

a/n: well, thank YOU for stopping by and supporting it!! I’m having loads of fun with this writer’s high I’ve been blessed with. Let’s hope I don’t get another bout of writer’s block that lasts for a year again… LOL *fingers, toes, all other limbs and phalanges crossed* Requests are still open as always!! :)

so anyway I enjoy the thought that Kara is just… so good to you. She would take such good care of you in all the things and really I have a whole lot of feelings about it

- - - - -

Certainly, you still find yourself not believing your luck and the fact that you scored it all when you first started dating Kara Danvers.

How couldn’t you think you won the lottery of people when your girlfriend truly ticks off all the boxes you looked for in someone, and even still also ticks off all the boxes you didn’t think you had?

She set plenty of new standards for you, and you’re convinced she’s ruined at least a good majority of National City’s populace for you. It had seemed that with every thought you had, you could feel every bone in your body begging you to hold onto her for as long as you can.

Kara was stupidly sweet, and so it was, you could just see pure goodness permeating into every single thing Kara did for you and for others, and you couldn’t help but swoon. In every sense of the word, Kara Danvers was chivalrous and upstanding, and though those are words one wouldn’t necessarily use to describe their love life and the bedroom activities thereof, you find that this peculiarity turned you on even more.

HEY, luckily for all of you, I thought of an elaborate metaphor to express my X-Files feelings; here goes.

Years ago, this baker came up with a recipe for some oatmeal raisin cookies. They had raisins in them but also a lot of brown sugar and butter and a subtle blend of spices and other good stuff. Chocolate chips even. The raisins were well-balanced so that their sweetness perfectly complemented the cookie overall; even people who weren’t big into raisins enjoyed them. Now, the baker LOVES raisins, but he had a lot of assistants who worked with him to tweak the recipe so that no flavor dominated. Sure, they’re called “oatmeal raisin cookies,” but, you know, that doesn’t mean people just want to eat a pile of oatmeal and raisins, obviously! Haha.

The cookies were super popular and a huge seller for the bakery. For a brief time they actually made the town, and the baker, famous. After a while other kinds of cookies became more popular and took over, but at some point people were like “hey remember those amazing oatmeal raisin cookies?? Let’s ask the baker to make those again!” The baker was excited that people remembered them so fondly, and was delighted to make them again. He didn’t remember the EXACT precise mix of ingredients they had used back then, but he figured he would start with the basics: oatmeal; raisins; it’s a tried-and true formula! Obviously it had worked last time! And, who doesn’t love raisins?? They’re sweet and chewy! Not that the cookies NEEDED any improvements, but if there WERE improvements to be made, it would obviously be more raisins.

He recreates the cookies, not skimping on the raisins, and everyone is so excited that they are back! Oatmeal raisin cookies! Remember those?? They were SO GOOD! The people have such residual affection for those cookies, and such fond memories of eating them as kids and how fantastic they tasted, and they line up to buy them! And they are…good! There is still a nice butter and brown sugar taste, and raisins, which, obviously, it’s in the name, so, that’s important, right? There are…so many raisins. The people LOVE these cookies though. They’re a classic! Were there this many raisins last time?

The baker is delighted by the success of the cookies and he keeps adding more and more raisins, because obviously, what he’s doing is working, right?? People keep buying them! Clearly they love raisins as much as he does! Otherwise, why would they be so into something called “oatmeal raisin cookies”? More raisins can only make it better! He would know, right? Considering he created these cookies in the first place?? He adds more and more and more raisins. People will get their cookie and be excited, and take a bite and be like, uh holy fuck that’s a lot of raisins, but I mean, they’re still great cookies! And I remember them so fondly! So the baker is like EXCELLENT THEY LOVE THE RAISINS SOOOOOOOO MUUUUUUUUCCCHHHH and he starts a raisin farm so he can have an endless supply of raisins and he hires bakery assistants who love raisins as much as him (including some of the assistants who worked there before and are like “Did we use this many raisins last time? I guess we must have”), and people keep buying the cookies, because the part you can taste around the fucking thousands of raisins is still pretty yummy, but that part keeps getting smaller and smaller. But! Remember how much we loved these cookies as kids! People keep buying them and eternally hoping that they will capture that delicious balance that they used to have. They can almost taste it. They buy more and more, looking for that taste again. They eat a LOT of raisins while doing that.

Sometimes the bakery will get a negative review, like, “yeah, I do remember when these cookies used to be good, but now it’s just like eating a fucking entire box of raisins and I got indigestion and what happened to the chocolate chips?? There weren’t a LOT of chocolate chips but they were so good. And didn’t there used to be spices? I don’t taste any of that anymore. This dude is obsessed with raisins and these cookies suck now. One star.” The baker does NOT let this get him down! Obviously these naysayers don’t understand him or his lifelong skill at making oatmeal raisin cookies. Anyone looking for chocolate chips in these cookies is looking in the wrong place, buster! Why don’t you just eat a Mars bar? Geez. He keeps on doing what he knows best.

Meanwhile you have the bakery front staff having to sell and cheerlead these raisiny cookies that people keep coming in and being excited about. They have sampled them, and privately they are like, “What the FUCK is with these cookies that are like 95% raisins?? THIS is the thing this baker is known for? THIS is the thing these people are lining up to buy?” They work there (and have worked there for a long time, including back in the day when the oatmeal raisin cookies first got popular and they barely had time to try them because of the lines outside the door and the unending busy-ness of their shifts), and they have a job to do and they’re professionals for pete’s sake (and loyal to this baker who has employed them for so long), and all they know is that people are so enthusiastic about these cookies, and that’s nice, even if they don’t really understand why. (Sometimes they will take a bite and be like “yeah, I kinda get it” but most of the time it’s just, my god these are so raisiny. SO RAISINY. But OK, people love raisins, I guess.) 

So they keep saying things like, “Yup, well, he has this recipe and obviously he knows what he’s doing, he’s been making these cookies for so long! Well, enjoy those! Have a great day!” People leave with their boxes of oatmeal raisin cookies and in the car they start eating them and they’re like “…this is a lot of raisins” but mostly what the front staff see are people excitedly paying for their cookies and leaving. Plus, they are committed to the whole endeavor at this point, so if people take a bite of their cookie in the bakery and are like “…THE HELL ARE THERE SO MANY RAISINS IN THIS” they will get irritated, and say, well, that’s what they’re called, oatmeal raisin cookies! People love them, sorry they’re not to your taste, but, you know, they’re a classic, so obviously other people feel differently, lol! Then they kind of glare at that person as they walk out the door.

If asked directly about how they feel about the cookies, the front staff will be like, “Um, well, uh, just in my OWN life in my own particular tastes I generally prefer cookies that have…more of a variety of flavor, I guess, but obviously these oatmeal raisin cookies are a town classic and everyone loves them. And, I mean, they’re great! You know, we don’t do the baking, haha! We leave that to our eminently talented boss! And we are so inspired that people enjoy them so much!” Which, you know, they are. The bakery has been good to them, and if people seem to be bafflingly crazy for what at this point pretty much amounts to piles of raisins stuck together in a patty and baked in an oven, who are they to object?

Eventually people, not even really knowing why themselves, stop coming to the bakery and buying the oatmeal raisin cookies. “These millennials, all they want today is gluten-free stuff,” the baker sighs. He makes another batch of cookies. He thinks maybe he’ll try adding some more raisins. That can only improve them. Hey, it’s always worked in the past!

And, scene.

I don’t know if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but I hate when I read the first book in a series and it’s filled with so many problematic elements. Then fans of the series tell me things like “It gets better in the later books! It’s not as problematic in book 3! The issues finally get addressed in book 4! Just keep reading!”

I shouldn’t have to slog through multiple books just to get a resolution to the problematic elements I found in the first book. In any case, even though I’m reading a series, each book should be able to stand on its own without a whole lot of dependency on other books aside from continuation of the story (or worldbuilding). Just because those issues get resolved in later books and become “less problematic,” doesn’t take away from the fact that the first book is still pretty bad. People can still get hurt and later books can’t take that away.

NEW WRITER GC!!!

basically this GC is gonna be where scenario writers can:

  • share fic ideas
  • asking opinions or help with fic ideas
  • ask how to do certain requests
  • talking about your writing
  • ranting about hate anons
  • ranting about writing in general (ex: like getting stuck in the middle of your scenario)
  • being supportive of each other when you don’t get a lot of likes on something you worked on really hard
  • helping with writers block
  • and just being able to relate with a whole bunch of people with the same problems as you lol
  • BUT NOT JUST SPECIFICALLY THIS free to talk about whatever just wanted to say you can talk about everything above without getting judged
