Anyway, I hope you understand. And to those with my phone number, I’d appreciate it if you told me how you got it so I can stop it (11)

from happening again in the future. To be clear, I won’t be reacting to or reading any more Katie related tweets. Sorry, but that’s (12)

The way it has to be. And to the girl who texted me, Just to reiterate, message me again and I’ll put your name here. #NotJoking (13)

And to all the brill fans who know the difference between reality and television, take care and thanks for the nice chats. #ByeBye (14) -Rudhraigh McGrath (Katie’s brother) (x)

“ Haha sometimes I’m an ESFJ, sometimes I’m an ISTP. It really changes depending on the day, you know?”

“ Umm… How is he an F in any way? He’s so smart!”

“ ISTJs are soooo boring amirite”

“ Sensors are so dumb, but I guess we do need people to work in boring office jobs and stuff like that lol”

  • Hoshi: (recording his voice) Day 1 without Mingyu. Rations are falling low. Only half a piece of lettuce and a jar of expired jam in the fridg- never mind. Woozi just ate them - that's disgusting. The AC broke last night, Coups tried to fix it - punched a hole through the wall instead. Vernon's been missing for 14 hours. Seungkwan went out looking for him - no news of him either. Dino's crying alone in the corner... ahh nope Dk is crying with him. The8 tried to cook and lit the stove on fire, Wonwoo and Jun are helping him put it out. Or making it worse? Joshua said he was going to take the trash out but it's been a few hours so I think he's trying to fly back to America instead. Jeonghan's still asleep - wait, is he breathing? Jeonghan? JEONGHAN? - (audio cuts out)

okay but zingbot telling josh “your weight is bipolar just like your personality on tv” and making a joke about mark being bisexual is not funny at all. no wonder big brother slides all of the problematic shit that occurs under the rug because they condone it themselves. weight, mental illness, and sexuality are not jokes.

if you call Samwise Gamgee the “”“true hero”“” of the story but put Frodo down or belittle his accomplishments in any way in the same post or breath then i hope you know that Sam Gamgee would be disgusted by you and that opinion

I Can’t Think Straight (2008)

Context: Leyla, a Muslim British-Indian woman, is coming out to her mother, telling her “I’m gay.” Her mother reacts with horror and disgust, telling her “You’re up to your neck in sin” and going so far as to ask “Who did this to you?”

But it’s this scene that sums up the reality of LGBTQ+ desi youth. Our parents may very well love us and want the best for us, but the absolute bottom line is: our parents do not want us to be happy. They want us to be appropriate, to be respectful, to have children and well-earning careers, to fit into the mold of heteronormativity and gender roles, to be religious and pious. But no, they do not want us to be happy. Happiness doesn’t fit into it. To them, happiness is indistinguishable as a separate characteristic because according to them, doing all of these things should already be making us happy. The ideal created for desi children is that they shouldn’t strive to do what makes them happy, but what makes them “good.” Unfortunately, under this context, good is defined as anything that isn’t seen as immoral or out of the norm. 

A woman who is not straight is rejecting her role as a wife, and to a lesser extent, her role as a mother. She is rejecting the notion of subservience to men, of obedience and inferiority. Under our current system that is hugely patriarchal, a woman who does not submit is a threat. 

Now, I’m not saying desi parents are bad parents or hate their children because it’s pretty clear this happens in nearly every other culture in the world. But I am saying that desi parents do not make their children’s happiness a priority, they make their children’s success a priority: successful careers and marriages and children = successful lives. So if you ask a desi parent “do you want your kid to be happy?” they’ll immediately say “yes, of course.” But if you add on “do you want your kid to be gay if that makes them happy?” the answer will be a lot less positive.

This movie tackled Leyla’s sexuality and coming out to her parents absolutely head-on with no coyness about it. She goes straight up to her mother and admits that she’s a lesbian. But her mother’s reaction is really the thing that most “coming out” stories try to gloss over, or sugarcoat, or just in general avoid. Her mother admits with frank and brutal honesty the truth that all LGBTQ+ desi kids know: our parents would rather see us miserable and straight than queer and happy.

I… really like Overlord… it’s such a good show it’s all I’ve ever wanted out of an anime… I love all of the characters and it’s hard for me to pick a favorite (besides Ainz ofc) but here are some I like a lot!!

Can aphobes just shut the fuck up about Thomas already? The only reason you guys are trying to pin this man as a pedophile is because he thinks aces and aros belong in the LGBT community. He does not explicitly encourage minors to draw NSFW art of him, he was not aware that the artist was under 18 and has since corrected his behavior. He owned up to his mistakes, so why don’t y'all start doing the same?

hi, i'm @sapphicships and you recently reblogged an edit i made of feyre and mor. since in the tags u thought it was a "friendship" (despite my blog being for f/f pairings and the post exclusively saying "f/f pairing"), i'd like to say, i definitely did not make that edit and ship name for them to be platonic buddies. it'd be fine, but i then saw that u ship moriel, and please never interact with my blog again. that is disgusting—mor is a lesbian and thinks of azriel AS FAMILY. thank you.

Wow I’m really sorry! I honestly didn’t notice it was a f/f post. My tag was just an innocent mistake and I honestly didn’t mean any offense.

The Devil came to my door when I was eleven years old,
Under the blue New York Sky,
And Pennsylvania field,
I saw his work unfold.

Together, we swore we’d drive him out, push him to the streets.
United we stood,
differences forgot
As we chased him into defeat.

But the Devil is a cunning man,who knows just how to wait.
And when unity loses it’s fervour,
He comes in through the back gate.

He puts a thought into the heart
Until it starts to take
And then stirred up devils thoughts
Turn into words of hate.

And now maybe he’s hiding
Across the street or maybe nearer,
Still waiting, till he’s certain,
We’ll see the Devil in our Mirrors.

I'm gonna get up on a soap box a little here:

THE GIRLS IN DEH NEED MORE RECOGNITION.

the girls in DEH need MORE RECOGNITION

the girls in DEH need more recognition

THE LADIES IN DEH NEED AND DESERVE MORE FREAKING RECOGNITION

Do you see a pattern here?

I think that, for the most part the fandom can pretty much agree on that.

You might think Alana is annoying, or that what she did was wrong, but that doesn’t make her not important. She is an incredibly deep character and I’ve hashed some of that out in a previous post if you care about my opinion. Also can I get a “HELL YEAH” for Kristolyn Lloyd? That woman is a gd powerhouse.

You might dislike Zoe, I know I dislike some of the things she says, but that doesn’t make her any less of a strong, developed, wonderfully written and portrayed female character. Zoe is important. And can we talk about Laura Dreyfuss please? Talk about perfection personified.

I mean idk how you could hate Heidi that woman tried so damn hard. She isn’t perfect because who is? but she owns that fact, more so than any other character in the show. She knows she’s fail at times but that doesn’t mean she didn’t give her all. Heidi Hansen is important. Heidi Hansen is Supermom and you can fight me behind Denny’s at 3am if you disagree. Also I’ll fight you if you dare insult my mother Rachel Bay Jones.

Cynthia, oh Cynthia. She is a terrible mother. And you know what, that sucks. But you know what else? She lost her son. Okay, this woman lost her freaking son, and she has every right to lose her damn mind. But she exhibits characteristics of a kind and caring person, who is generous and thankful for her lot. Her failing Connor (and Zoe) doesn’t make her a bad person. No one gets handed a “how-to mother” book when they have kids. People make mistakes, some people make a lot of mistakes. She tried. That’s all you can do sometimes. Cynthia Murphy is important. Don’t you dare dispute it. Jennifer Laura Thompson puts nearly as much emotion into that show as Ben does. She’s on stage sobbing and playing a grieving mother every night and someone give her an award please.

HOWEVER:

•Evan Hansen is the main character. He’s gonna get attention.

•Connor Murphy is a mystery (and played by Michael Faist). He’s gonna get attention.

•Jared Kleinman is the comic relief and therefore easy to make jokes around. He’s gonna get attention.

•Larry sucks. No attention for you. (But yay Michael Park!)

•We don’t need to tear the other characters down, just boost these ladies up so they are on an even playing field as the others.

But there should be just as much Alana and Cynthia as there is Jared. Just as much Heidi as there is Connor. Just as much Zoe as there is Evan.

And this isn’t just one persons fault. It’s everyone’s fault. I know I’m guilty of posting more about Connor Murphy than any of the ladies. And the media does it too. (I NEED MORE LAURA INTERVIEWS ALSO KRISTOLYN). But it is something that we can all fix. It doesn’t take much to put a pause on our bathbomb memes and show these ladies some love.

And this isn’t just a DEH problem. It’s in every fandom out there for the most part.

tbh many international media discussing the grenfell tower fire are leaving out the fact that it was a council building that burned and don’t give nearly enough attention to the implications of this incident re: classism and it’s both frustrating and disrespectful
