and for giving that website

Okay, so, I don’t know how to start this but I just wanna say to all of you that if you ever need someone to talk to, if you ever need to vent about literally anything, I’ll be there. I’ll listen to you. Whenever you’re feeling sad, having a breakdown, or whatever, know that you can come and talk to me about it. Even if we’re not friends. Even if we’re not mutuals. Hell, even if we never talked a single time on this goddamn website. I don’t give a fuck. If you need someone, I’ll be here. Always. So never hesitate to contact me, please, and I’m serious about it. I won’t judge you. I will listen to you and try my best to help you. But keep in mind that you’re not alone. You’ll never be alone. I love you.

I think the worst thing that fandom culture and the increasing acknowledgement of fandom culture from creators has wrought is this

incredible amount of entitlement that people in said fandoms get like

just because creators know something is a thing in a fandom doesn’t mean they have to do it or else they hate their fans. It’s a consistent thing I’m seeing more and more in fandoms and it’s getting worse. Like all the steven universe garbage that’s happened over that show’s run and now overwatch like

people are wishing other people dead because a robot ninja and an angel woman are dating. and there are people who are legit horrified at the sheer concept of characters being straight and I’m just sat here wondering how they can possibly tolerate real life.

the fact that people get so entrenched in what they perceive as author approval when their ships and headcanons aren’t immediately shut down, despite said author interacting with the fanbase, that their mental health deteriorates when something contradictory is even hinted at is just sickening like

I just went on twitter and saw people legitimately wanting to kill a man on the overwatch team because of gency and like

its. not. yours.

you do not own overwatch. you do not own steven universe. you do not own anything you’re fandoming so hard over. rebecca sugar could tomorrow have pearl confess her love to renaldo and the overwatch team could make torbjornXpharah and both of them would be canon because it’s THEIR CREATION AND THEY DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS.

THEY get to decide what to do with it. Not you. It is NOT YOURS.

I absolutely think fandom/tumblr culture has led to more death threats and harassment than any other thing on the internet and I think if creators want to avoid it, the best way is to just stop acknowledging the fandoms. Because they’ll twist whatever they can get their filthy hands on so they can shit on other people and never feel remorse or grow as people because they’re doing it to be “progressive”

Campaign Zero creators launch tool to show you how to fight Trump’s agenda in your state

  • The young minds behind the anti-police violence resource Campaign Zero launched an online tool on Monday that shows activists how to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda at the local level. 
  • Our States,” a website that Mic previewed exclusively, gives users a state-by-state breakdown of bills that, if enacted, would strip civil rights and other legal protections from communities of color, women and LGBTQ people.
  • As Trump stumbles through his first months in office, Republican-controlled state legislatures are considering laws that would criminalize protests, restrict protections against LGBTQ discrimination and limit women’s access to safe and legal abortions, among other proposals.
  • “The purpose of Our States is to ensure that citizens know the legislation being proposed in their respective state, so that they can mobilize to either support or oppose it,” activist and Campaign Zero co-founder Deray Mckesson said in a statement to Mic. “The stakes are high.” Read more (3/27/17 10 AM)

Bottom’s Up by cryingoverspilledvodka, lucycamui, Teen, 4.3k

Amateur or Expert by Watermelonsmellinfellon, Teen, 1.9k
AU where Yuuri is a ice skating instructor and Victor is thirsty for him and will do whatever it takes for Yuuri to get to know him.

Habit by LFMH021, Teen, 2.8k

When Viktor starts obsessing over something on his phone, though, Yuuri starts to worry. He suspects it’s something related to him and wants to find out what has Viktor so transfixed, but will the ensuing embarrassment be worth his curiosity? LOLOL

“If you want, I can recommend you some security programs that you can download for free and protect your computer.

SO CUTE AND FUNNY! I love @ebenroot so much!!

lovesick by Ironinkpen, Teen, 2.7k
“Did the doctor send you?” When Yuuri doesn’t reply fast enough, since he’s still gaping like a fish, he turns to Yuri. “Did the doctor send him? Because wow,” He drops his arm and presses his hand to his chest like the dramatic bastard he is. “You’ve got to be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen.”
“Oh my god,” Yuri groans. “Is he hitting on you?” OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS FIC

The Goddamn Tie Has Got To Go by  Katyaton, Teen, 4.5k
Dear God. Yuuri was wearing the tie again.
The powdery blue monstrosity was not only unfashionable (and where did Yuuri even manage to acquire such a tie?), it also reminded Viktor, with shocking clarity, of a sweaty, half naked, pole dancing Yuuri. For the sake of his remaining dignity, Viktor needed to improvise a plan to dispose of it as soon as possible. You have to read this!

Sleep(talk) It Off by cerisecandy, Gen, 1.2k
Where Yuuri sleep-talks, Viktor remains awake and suffers, and another night passes at the Katsuki family inn. Lord have mercy I nearly died while reading this I was in stitches!!!

Here's a list of every US senator that does — and doesn't — pay interns

You can’t get a job without experience, but you also can’t get the experience without a job.

A group called Pay Our Interns is trying to help end the practice of unpaid internships — starting on Capitol Hill. On Tuesday, the group rolled out a database of paid internships in the U.S. Senate. 

Mic took this list and then followed up with senators’ offices to confirm the accuracy of the database and include senators that pay interns but were left off the original list.

• Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson’s Senate website says that interns can receive college credit, but the Atlantic and job listings indicate the role is unpaid. A representative didn’t immediately respond to request for comment. 

A final note: In several cases, a senator’s website listed internships as unpaid, but after following up with their office, Mic learned that they do make funds available to certain interns through scholarships, travel assistance, or outside foundations. Also, many senators’ offices, whether they pay or not, help interns get college credit for their time spent working. If that means you can graduate sooner, or pay for one fewer class in a given semester, you’re technically not working for nothing. But giving interns college credits — without a stipend for living costs — still ignores what’s at the heart of Pay Our Interns’ point. As Vera put it himself, even the best learning experiences can’t pay the bills.

it’s cool for people to be aware of possible explanations for their behavior but kids have enough to figure out about themselves without you suggesting that their spacing out in the shower could be “dissociation”

                         *20 grams of fresh spearmint (about a large handful)
                          *5 grams of dried hibiscus (about 2 tablespoons)                                                *15 grams of other fresh herbs (another large handful;optional)                          *1 tablespoon of honey (or to taste)

                                 ~Directions~
 *Mince up the fresh herbs finely and place them in a large jar, at least 2 quarts in size. Add the hibiscus.

*Pour 1.5 quarts of just-boiled water over the herbs and stir. Let this steep for 10-15 minutes, covered.

*Strain into a half-gallon glass jar. (I use a strainer and a funnel.) While still warm, add the honey and stir until it is fully combined with the tea.

*Let it cool. 10-20 minutes before serving, you can add ice to cool it down. Will serve 2 quarts, and should be used before 24 hours.

you know as much as i complain about this website it does give me the opportunity to interact with a lot more lgbt people than i typically meet as a student at a tiny college in a small town. if you can wade through all the mogais and terf circles there are a lot of really good people on here and they’re a lot of the reason i feel as connected to lgbt culture and history as i do
