and i am so happy with the ending

Mashima-sensei on FT ending

Fairy Tail welcomes its final chapter in Weekly Shonen Magazine that goes on sale today. I am grateful to everyone who has supported me until now. Thank you very much. (source)


Even though the manga has ended, the anime is still being worked on, and there are people who only read the volumes. In addition, there are also various FT events going on, so it doesn’t really feel like the series has ended. (source)


I had a party with my editors today to celebrate the successful completion of Fairy Tail. Fairy Tail was a happy work through which I met really great editors. It’s thanks to their scheduling that I was able to draw the manga for 11 years without it going on a break. I’m also thankful to them for keeping along with my workload. (source)

bring trans is a mental disorder. the US army doesn't let anyone with mental disorders join. also this is a policy from Obama's term. So you know, think before you reblog/post maybe.

I like that you conveniently left out that it was a policy already in place when Obama got there and it’s one he ended in his last year in office.

Fun fact: I’m currently a psychology major studying to get a degree in psychology with a focus in clinical/counseling psychology. I own a copy of the DSM-IV and I’d be happy to let you know that nowhere in it is simply “being transgender” listed as a mental disorder.

Okay, I’ll try to explain this to the best of my understanding, but I am a cis female so if I get something wrong, please correct me.

What you may be thinking of is the “"disorder”“ called gender dysphoria, which is listed as a mental illness in the DSM-IV. Now, I understand that this can confuse people, seeing as one of the diagnostic criteria for gender dysphoria is “a strong desire to be of another gender.” Often times, gender dysphoria and being transgender are linked together in conversation. But did you know it is possible to be transgender and not experience gender dysphoria?

There are many people who disagree/feel uncomfortable with having gender dysphoria listed in the DSM, myself included. The problem with gender dysphoria is this: for a psychological state to be considered a mental illness, it has to meet three criteria before even looking at the symptoms themselves. And it has to meet all three criteria, otherwise it’s not considered a mental illness. One of these criteria is for the psychological state to cause the individual severe emotional or mental distress. The problem with this in relation to gender dysphoria and being transgender is that many transgender people are not distressed by the fact that they identify as another gender. They may experience distress from societal pressures and views on their differing gender identity, but the gender identity itself isn’t causing them distress. Which means, as according to psychology rules and the criteria in the DSM-IV, not all transgender people experience gender dysphoria, as listed in the DSM-IV, because of the lack of distress. Because of this lack of distress, (regardless of what the other criteria are because, like I said, it has to match all three anyway), many people believe gender dysphoria should be removed from the DSM-IV as a mental disorder.

But, because it is listed as a mental illness in the DSM, there are treatments for it. However, the treatments might surprise you. Interestingly enough, one of the recommended treatments for gender dysphoria is gender reassignment surgery. The belief is that once you fully physically transition to the opposite sex, the gender dysphoria goes away. However, not all trans people want to or even have the ability to fully make the transition. That’s why other treatments are listed such social gender transition (e.g. having others refer to you by your preferred pronouns and/or preferred name) or HRT (hormone replacement treatments).

The debate for removing gender dysphoria from the DSM has been a long one, and will probably continue until the next DSM is released. Some people claim having gender dysphoria listed is important to be able to understand and help individuals who experience it. Others argue that it’s not a mental illness (for the reasons listed above) and that it is stigmatizing and leads to confusion and discrimination against transgender people. Another problem is that some gender reassignment surgeons require a history of diagnosed gender dysphoria before they’ll consider performing the surgery. As the next DSM won’t be published for a few more years, only time and the future discussion and acceptance of transgender individuals in our society will tell if gender dysphoria will be removed as a mental illness.

Now, Anon, I’m going to give you some advice.

Maybe instead of going around and accusing people of not understanding something when you clearly don’t know anything about it yourself, you could go out and learn what being transgender actually means instead of believing the ignorant information other ignorant people in society try to shove down your throat. It’s called research, maybe you should try it. Google is free.

Maybe you should also learn what mental illness really is instead of just throwing it around as a term to apply to things you are incapable of understanding.

You know. Just a thought.

BBC Class

Before reading this, please keep in mind that Class is a wonderful show for many reasons other than the one I will be stating, but I really want to address this reason in particular.

I’m writing this post in light of my third friend, in less than two months, coming out to me. I am so incredibly happy for her, just I am for my other two friends. I’m so happy that she can finally truly be herself. But I am also terrified because of this world we live in. A world where people face discrimination and violence and even death every day for loving who they choose and identifying as they are. As happy as I am that my friends came out, fear is mingled with this happiness. I fear that one of the horrible stories I’ve read about will happen to them, I fear that they will face prejudice in every step of their path, I fear that people will stop them from loving who they choose. I fear for them because I love them, yet love cannot prevent hate, no matter how hard we try. Knowing this breaks my heart every single day, and I just want to be able to shield all my friends from the world. But I can’t. In so many ways, I’m completely helpless, and that breaks me too. However, it also inspires a new strength in me. I never want anyone to hurt my friends because of their sexuality, and I will fight to my last breath to see that happen.

This leads me into my point about Class. Perhaps the main relationship in the show is the romance between Charlie and Matteusz, which I absolutely love. They are the perfect couple, supporting each other, looking out for one another, and always being there for the other no matter what. Their relationship is quite unconventional, but also unbelievably perfect. We need to show the world more of Charlie and Matteusz. I know that there are a lot of shows out nowadays that have gay couples, but I want to focus on Charlie and Matteusz for a few reasons. First, they are a completely normalized couple. They do everything a stereotypical straight couple is expected to do, and they are not scorned or mocked. Second, they are in love. Some people may believe that love only exists between a man and a woman, but Charlie and Matteusz prove that wrong a thousand times over. The love they have for each other could light up galaxies. Third, and finally, their show was cancelled. While Charlie and Matteusz were not the reason for the show’s cancellation (cough BBC in general cough), by ending Class, it denied an audience of young watchers the chance to see this adorable couple, erasing yet another LGBTQ+ couple from the media. I get that there are more shows out there, but we need every show we can get, and Class in particular had a refreshing realistic and sweet gay couple.

I know this post is rather long, and I also know that it’s not going to bring back Class. But everyone needs to know, we need more shows like Class. We need to fight for more LGBTQ+ couples. We need to fight to make a better world for the LGBTQ+ community, and we can start with more shows like Class.

I'm 27 and I always wanted to be a part of club 27 since I was like 17. But in fact, it's the first time I feel alive. I lost 80 pounds, I discovered that hiking and traveling are the most wonderful things for me to do, I found the warmest human being and next month I'll have my exams to end my education as a nurse. Live is good and I hope, you feel yourself more than ever at 27. Lots of love.

Aw this makes me happy to read, i am so glad to hear you are doing well and thriving!! Keep it up love, you’re going to do big things!

jesus what is going on here? this place used to be my happy corner where I can share my love for the killers and now I see some dramas, people calling eachother bad fans and stalkers.

don’t want to judge anyone or taking sides since I don’t know what’s really gonig on (and I am honestly not going to investigate I don’t give a damn) but please

the one thing for sure - we all love this band, we all owe them so much, we’ve shared so many amazing moments (don’t get me started with the list bc it will never end) so please.

sometimes it’s just better to keep your thoughts, opinions to yourself and not share with the fandom. some people might disagree, feel offended and they have absolute right to. I don’t think we want to fight over some irrelevant stuff.

ok idk what else to say so here it goes. a picture of a cuddle bc we are a family.

anonymous asked:

I'm sad it's over but I'm glad we found the true end the first time - and that the true end was us fighting. And also to Dark: I AM A MISTAKE AND I'M DAMN PROUD OF IT SO FU-

Yes. Be proud.

In a world without a guaranteed happy ending, our mistakes are all we have.

anonymous asked:

I haven't read TEC yet (bc I'm weary about the ending... I only ever read happy ending fics bc the others tear me apart and this I am Afraid™) I feel like I just need a tiny nudge to read it bc I've heard so many great things about it soooo my question is why should I read it ?

Damn anon you went hard!! 😂
Okay I am really not a good seller HOWEVER I think you should give tec a go because whatever it is you’re expecting, it’s most likely not that. I think it can really take you by surprise jf you try it! There are some sad things and angsty things, but I don’t write unhappy endings and I never would. I don’t like them. It will be a lil’ bittersweet and (hopefully) make your heart twist, but I like taking care of our boys and I like them together or as close to together as they can be under the wacky circumstances.
So if you don’t mind slower pacing and mysterious circumstances, you should try it!

anonymous asked:

Do you think we'll ever get smth more? Like a sequel, spin-off or extra. I mean, I don't hate the ending, I just - there was no progress (Jerza/Nalu) and it's not that satisfying either. I wanted the full journey not half. Rather than being happy I am disappointed. It's just .... but then again I heard Mashima's new story will take place in another world so it seems this is really it for us.

I wouldn’t lose hope, I believe that Mashima will give us something more.  Maybe not a whole new series with Fairy Tail, but I don’t think that he’s done with FT just yet.

Let me get something fucking straight.
I’ve had a roughy ass life, a life where many people couldn’t fucking imagine it and I STILL go through it but I’m not some negative bitch that drags people down. I’m the happiest I’ve been in YEARS due to accepting the situation and realizing being a mopey bitch won’t change shit.
Yeah I run a blog like this for outreach. People DM me asking for destructive shit and I’m ALWAYS like “Nah dude change something about yourself don’t mess it up” I’ve never given a “life sucks so just end it” speech.
So FUCK outta here with that shit.
I am SUCCESSFUL, I council kids, do well in school, I’ve never dropped below a 4.0 UNWEIGHTED GPA. I am HAPPY. I have my friends and myself to thank for that.
So nah don’t project your feelings onto someone else to justify your actions. That’s all.

Thank you so much, @gellbellshead I’m really happy with how people are responding to the raptor bughead fic rec of the day. Commenting is improving slightly as well and a lot of authors are citing increased inspiration at all the new traffic, so I call it a success. I want to make sure everyone is supported. 

I’m going to be doing a bi-monthly round up by the end of this week to summarize all the fic requests in case some one has missed the daily’s! 

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)

just a random thought: what will you like to see when haikyuu ends? just a random question ^-^

The roar of the crowd is a deafening sound in his ears and the lights of the stadium shine so bright to blind him for a couple of seconds. He holds his breath. This is it, finally it. The Olympics.

He grasps tight at the fabric of his jersey. It’s true, everything is real, even if he still couldn’t believe it. He’s wearing the red uniform of the Japan men’s national volleyball team, the one he’s always desired the most.

The confusion lasts just a couple of moments. Around him everything feels so familiar, despite being completely new. He repeats the same warming up routine he’s used to do since high school until it’s time. Eighteen hands pile one on the other, eighteen red and black dressed bodies squeeze each other in an encouraging embrace.

“Let’s go!” his captain yells.

As they all part ways to gain the center of the court, he forgets to breathe as he reads again some of the names written in bold white letters on the back of the jerseys. Most of them, he was used to see on the other side of the net, but now they are here. His teammates.

Bokuto. Oikawa. Ushijima. Kuroo. Nishinoya. Tsukishima. Komori. Miya.

Dark blue eyes meet his own, a stare so firm it shakes him out of his awe immediately.

“Let’s go,” Kageyama says in a nod, offering his hand.

He takes it, and Kageyama’s promise flashes before his eyes once more.

As long as I’m here, you’re invincible.

Hinata smiles.

“Let’s go.”
