so actually tho, blind people can use the internet and, yes, tumblr, bc we have modern tech like screen readers, text-to-speech programs, refreshable braille displays, colour inverters, text enlargers

blindness is a spectrum, most blind people aren’t totally blind, there is tech that allows us to modify our world to make it more accessible–these are all facts!! 

Had a dream last night where @whelvenwings was doing a vlog and was getting really emotional about how much she missed @thebloggerbloggerfun and suddenly the camera pans over and you see that they’re actually still in the same room together and I’m not sure what’s weirder, the fact I had a dream about this at all, or that my brain thought that reveal was the biggest plot twist since The Sixth Sense.

OMG, right? Your own abuse is always hilarious cause how the fuck do you even deal with this bullshit without just finding it fucking funny. If you don't laugh it might be worse.

RIGHT??? It’s like ‘I’m about to say some real shit right now, and ha! I really wish I could make myself not say it. Hee, but I literally don’t know how to shut up! Ha ha, please don’t think less of me, hoooo boy, for being a fallible human! Hahahah. Oh god, anyway, I don’t deserve love.

And any time I do that she just looks at me all deadpan like and says ‘that’s not funny, why are you laughing?’ She also gets onto me for minimizing my self. Thursday I said something about some terrible feeling I had and then I said ‘but you know, that’s a common narrative’, and she just goes ‘would you stop diminishing your feelings?’

NO. NO I WILL NOT. STOP TRYING TO TAKE AWAY MY DEFENSE MECHANISMS. HOW ELSE WILL I EVER DEFEND MYSELF FROM NOT KNOWING HOW TO COPE WITH— oh, wait, that’s literally what I’m paying you do, isn’t it? 

Well then, I guess….carry on?

a little winter Shiro doodle to help calm my nerves

Imagine this for a second: you have a husband, and you love him very much. He’s handsome, and charming, and attentive, and funny, and everything you’ve ever wanted, and he loves you just as much as you love him.

He works as an actor, together with other actors and actresses, and sometimes he hangs out with them on set and goofs around. There’s an actress with whom he’s good friends. Maybe they play love interests. Maybe not. Either way, they get along, and they’re friends. And you’re friends with said actress, too.

And now imagine that people talk online about your husband and his co-worker, speculating that they’re together, maybe telling your husband he should leave you for his co-worker or condemning him/them for something they’d never do or saying they’re a cute couple. Or sharing edits of their characters in, shall we say, mature situations, and tagging them in it so they show up in their newsfeeds, or when you or your family or friends google them. Not their characters, but them.

Imagine how you’d feel.

Or imagine how you’d feel if you were the husband, or the co-worker, being accused of something you’d never do. Being accused of doing, or encouraged to do, something that would hurt someone you love very much.

Imagine how you’d feel.

And maybe take that into account before you speak/tweet/etc.
