Hey, could you please explain to me what's going on with Markiplier? All I know is that he made a pretty compelling video about hatred in the world and that we need to respect each other as human beings to live in peace. I don't know why are people giving him shit. He's actually a nice guy.

diff anon but since u mentioned sexuality & u seem nice i thought id ask u too. im liberalminded but also religious, my faith is smthn that means a lot to me. the thing is ive always had crushes on both guys & girls, im a girl & could easily fall in love w a girl but tend to push myself the other way bc of my faith. theres heaviness in my heart when i think about it but i cant tell if thats a temptation thing?i know feeling guilty all the time is unhealthy but i dnt want to choose btwn the 2 :'(

hello my love, you wonderful wonderful beautiful person, i, too, am religious, and i was raised with the belief that i could not love the same sex, and my parents were always very against women loving women and men loving men. i grew up with that fear in my heart, too, and now that i look back on it, i probably dropped a lot of hints when i was a child that i liked girls, and i remember them clear as day because my parents would hiss at me to be quiet and warn me not to say that again.

but i grew. and they grew. and they’re still religious people, but they have grown to accept that we can love who we love. their view on sexuality is still a little skewed, i think, like, i don’t think i could explain to them that i’m bisexual without their mind immediately racing towards, “she’s a lesbian”, but they’re trying their best, and i know they would still love me no matter what. they believe in the God that i believe in: the kind & forgiving God, who makes absolutely no mistakes, my darling, and that’s what you have to remember. God does not make mistakes. i know that it’s hard; it’s not temptation, though, i don’t think, what you’re describing. i think it’s just the real you trying to push through.

you like both men and women. you want to like both men and women without remorse. and if you believe in the same God i believe in, then you can like both men and women without remorse. you can fall in love with either of them without feeling like you’re betraying your religion. i once asked my mom, actually, if she thought gay people went to hell. she told me, “i don’t think God would make room for them.” and i remember feeling devastated, thinking she meant that he wouldn’t make room for them because they’re not even worthy of room in hell, but last year i brought it up to her again during a discussion and she told me that’s not what she’d meant. she meant to say, there are worse people in the world. people who do terrible things, and she told me she doesn’t think God would make room for people who loved the same sex, because they don’t belong there at all. 

religion is a tricky thing. i’ve come to find that in religion, especially in branches of christianity, people tend to pick and choose what is convenient for them to preach. so you have to remember your religion does not have to fall into a box, and you can believe what you believe without anyone judging you for it. it’s like me: i know my God, and i know what i believe in, and i know the people who think of religion in the same way that i do and they will tell you the same thing: that God loves you no matter who you love, and there’s a reason why you’re here, and there’s a reason why you are the way that you are.

one of my Very Catholic Friends likes to joke that God made people who love the same sex as a solution to overpopulation. so if anyone tries to get into it with you about your sexuality, just remind them you’re actually saving the world. and if that makes you feel better and more accepting towards yourself, then remind yourself of that, too. you’re actually just saving the world.

i love you, and i hope that these words were at least a little bit comforting for you. i know how hard it is, trust me, i’ve been in your shoes, but i think i’ve made peace with my religion and my sexuality. i think i can have both now, without feeling bad about one or the other. and i really really hope you can have that one day, too, my love ❤️

svtfoe is so much more the ships, ships are alright but so many people are forgetting svtfoe is also a show about:

- a deeper story about prejudice against monsters

-mystery and magic

-cute and fun characters and getting to see all their dynamics/how they interact with each other

-some very morals/lesson for kids to learn

-and a lot of creative overlooked concepts

-a generally an awesomely animated show with wicked/action fight scenes !!!

It’s just a wacky fun action-packed magical girl show that should be enjoyed as a whole!!! not just hyperfocused the romance aspect. We don’t often get a show like this, a show that does such a good job at teaching us how to have fun!

Me: Pedophilia is bad.

Tumblr: Yeah!! It shouldn’t exist. It hurts so many people.

Me: Pedophilic ships are bad.

Tumblr: Wait……….. no.. stop. Too far… What are you doing? No…… That’s… no… Just no. Stop… It isn’t real. It’s just fiction. Drawings can’t hurt anyone……. You’re overreacting… Stop…


So this is love, so this is what makes life divine…

Patty Tolan & Erin Gilbert in “Ghostbusters”

“- Screw that. We are scientists. Plus Patty. 

 - Thank you.”

But guys...

Yuuri and Victor… now they’re on the same page. There’s no more fear of rejection or the shadow of a set end. They know they want to stay at each other’s side. 

It breaks my heart, because it must have been so hard Yuuri, our anxious boy with very low self-esteem, to ask him to stay with him. Let’s point out that in Japanese he says something like “please be with me until I retire” for added feels.

And Victor not only kisses his hand in such a tender way and looks at him like he’s the most precious and beautiful thing he’s ever seen in his life, he also tells him that he wishes to never leave. In a corner of his mind, Yuuri always believed that his time with Victor was fixed. A few months, a year… The GPF has always been the ultimate deadline, because he couldn’t think of a real reason for Victor to stay afterwards. But here it is, this silly Russian man assuring him that he has no intention of going anywhere.

I would also like to point out that retirement is something Yuuri has all the decisional power over. So basically Victor is also telling him that he’s gonna stay as long as the other man desires and that, if he could choose, he would never part from him. Hence the tears. Victor quietened all his doubts and fears.

I can barely wait to see how their relationship is going to evolve after this clarification/declaration, not that there shouldn’t be any doubt whatsoever. I can’t wait to see Yuuri’s FS at the GPF!

Yuuri won’t win alone. They will win together.
