and what the people on tumblr think about that

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on people who say that the mental illness community on here is promoting unhealthy coping mechanisms and is anti recovery? I think it's true, and I think we should move to making more memes about recovery, DBT skills, and send each other resources to get help, like online therapists if people feel uncomfy talking face to face. What do you think?

i fucking agree 10000%. the mental illness community on tumblr is VERY anti recovery. it’s almost like a lot of people here dont want to get better. that’s kind of why i started this blog, to combat that mentality. i do make relatable memes, but i also spread  A LOT of resources and try to push people in the right direction.

Respect Cody Christian‼️

Someone explain to me what’s the point of posting someone’s nudes.

WHAT’S THE FUCKING POINT?!?!

I really don’t understand. It clearly wasn’t made for you so wtf. Its called respect and clearly some people don’t have it.

People wanna be claim to be fans of Cody but then wanna share and post the video. You are not a really fan of him if you do not respect his privacy what so ever.

This is the second time this has happened and it’s pissing me off. The last time this happened, he was off social for almost 2 months and he had every reason to be.

It’s just aggravating that people thinks us okay to do this. Tomorrow is the finale of teen wolf and we all should be reminiscing about the amazing moments from the show and showing love and support to the cast.

And I will report anyone who decides to post it on Tumblr

Ask thing!

Name: Sarah

Nickname: None actually!

Gender: Female, she/her!

Height: uhm… average… 165 cm maybe? I dunno. And I have no idea what it is in feet.

Star sign: Gemini!

Sexuality: Bisexual. (Happy bi visibility day!)

Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff! Yeah!

Favourite animal: Giraffe (quite obviously) but I’m also fond of foxes and recently, snakes.

Average hours spent sleeping: eight probably, or at least I hope so.

Dogs or cats: Cats!

Number of blankets I sleep with: One. I still can’t understand how people can sleep with more than one…

Dream trip: LONDON! I WANNA GO THERE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!

Dream job: Writer!

When I made this account: about sixty days ago, I think…

Why I made this account: I was bored, and curious about what tumblr was.

Number of followers: 105 which is kind of weird since I mainly do weird stuff.

Reason for my URL: Sarah is one of my names, and I used to draw a hella lot of giraffes! Plus I’m a little like a giraffe: could have been awesome, but ends up kind of clumsy…

TLDR to some of you out there

If you ever come to me with Horikoshi hate, just know that I am not afraid to softly roast you ~^W^~

Think about it like this. Imagine if you were an author, and your book had a fandom. You’re a nice person and you never intend to hurt people, ever, but then some of the people who call themselves your fans go around to the other nice fans and claim that you’re a disrespectful misogynist. How would you feel if that happened to you? :0

I know Horikoshi doesn’t even have a tumblr account but that’s basically what some of these fans are doing now :/

Rather than spending your time looking for every flaw in the series, try and enjoy it for what it is.

Would it be a good idea to get more word out?

I’m talking about like other shit sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Reddit. We already know pedophiles have accounts on those sites too and tumblr is a loss cause for them. Everything they do here is in vain. If MAPs wanna make some shit forum to fool people into thinking that they’re good people, we should be able to go on websites like these and tell people what actual sick fucks they really are and to watch out for them. Some people do understand that pedophiles should get some professional help but don’t know that these monsters refuse any kind of options like that because they’re “proud” of their paraphilia even though they’ll claim it as a disorder but turn around and say it’s an attraction. Hell, I could make a whole Facebook group but I dont have Instagram so.

So I’m not completely sure if Tumblr ate my ask, cause that happens a lot with me lately. That’s why I’m submitting this as well, for your consideration. If the ask has gotten through, you can ignore this post :)

So I live in a crowded city and am always wondering how you people would get their daemon to walk around without having other people touch them? Mice and other small daemons are easy enough to carry, and birds can just fly alongside someone, but what about larger dogs and cats? Tigers, bears or, in my case, a clouded leopard?

I think the answer is simple. Walkways halfway up the buildings. Cat daemons won’t have trouble getting up there, dogs and others will have little ramps to go up and so no daemons will be too far away from their people. I mean, it won’t be big enough for, say, an elephant, but it would work for normal to large sized daemons! 

This brings some fun stuff to mind: 

  • A kid and their daemon staring out their apartment window, looking at the parade of daemons and learning more and more about them and the person they connect to. 
  • Shouting up to your daemon like ‘Yo, we’re going into this shop here! Come along!' 
  • Daemons doing a surprise aerial attack on their people. ( 'Lee would do that ALL THE TIME if he could get away with it) 
  • Daemons having little benches in every fitting room. (And making remarks on the style, cause of course) 
  • People having a collision in a hallway, while their daemons have the exact same collision on the walkways
  • Large cat and dog daemons coming down the walkway to walk with their people in case of robbers. 
  • Large cat and dog daemons coming down the walkway to walk with other people in case of robbers
  • Just… walkways halfway up the wall! 

For trains and buses, same rules. Daemons that can just be in the space of the luggage racks. Cars would have to be taller, to make sure people can travel with their daemons, but I think that all in all it will work? 

My Orleon sends his fond regards to Elijah. (He actually asked me to phrase it like that. Can’t believe how posh he’s being today)

Last evening my cousin challenged me on face book to this;

“Seven days, seven photos in black and white of your daily life. No explanation, no people, challenge a friend to join every day.”

I am at the office today so I just walked around with my cell phone taking pictures of the sort of creepy building I work in.  I know nothing about black and white.  Nothing.  It was pretty fun and I think I learned a little bit about what I like in a black and white photo. This is the one I chose, but I liked several others, so I am going to throw them up here. As you can see, I am not getting anything done today at work and will need to either stay late or come in another day this week.  :(

Number 1: Cell Phone Pictures of my Creepy Office Building on 9/23/17 by Elizabeth Johnson-Wold

Ugh. Tumblr ate my first attempt. So if this shows up twice, I apologize.

BW tweeted this, asking people what they think the blanked-out word might be. Some are guessing “a suit”, but that’s two words.

I’m very pleased Lisa is getting a mention on the call sheet, truly, but I’m concerned about what the cut-off part above “KITCHEN” seems to say:

“Casey comes looking for Tim; tells Jack he broke up with her.”

Tim, no!!

to all of my followers, and especially my younger ones, please don’t believe in all of the tumblr ideology without thinking about it critically. while tumblr can be right sometimes, a lot of it is just virtue signaling and mob mentality. if you don’t agree with something you see on tumblr please don’t think it just because that’s what everyone else is doing and you don’t want to feel ostracized 

While we’re on the subject of tumblr’s shortcomings as a fandom platform, I want to say one more thing. I’ve been thinking lately about how it’s really important to remember that fandom isn’t just on tumblr, but on AO3 as well. One angle that I don’t see people talking about a lot with regard to commenting on fic is that it’s another level of interaction that I don’t think fandom can live without–not just because it fuels writers, but because it can fuel readers too. 

Over the course of my fandom life, I’ve gradually worked my way up to leaving more and more detailed comments (not necessarily always longer, but definitely more specific) and let me tell you–it’s incredibly rewarding. Just recently, I left a comment that prompted a writer to share a lot more about what they were thinking while writing the fic and to give me a rec for a fic with a similar theme to the one they wrote. Sometimes writers will reply to comments by going into more detail about the headcanons they have for characters or explaining more backstory for a part of the fic that I mentioned liking. I’ve had people follow me here on tumblr after I commented on one of their fics on AO3 (and as a writer, I’ve followed people who have commented on my fic too–if I can find them here), and from that, sometimes new friendships arise.

What I’m trying to say is that the importance of comments as an aspect of fandom interactions can’t be overstated. It’s not just about stroking a writer’s ego. You can get things out of it too, whether it be a new headcanon to think about, an insight into the creative process, or even a new friend. Being specific about the parts of fic you like can give writers the confidence to write more things in the same vein or to write more period. Back in the LJ days, fic and personal posts were all mixed in together, so it was easier to have those kinds of interactions, but now that those worlds are split, I think it’s even more important to remember why commenting is important and what it can do for fandom as a whole.

So next time you’re leaving a comment, I challenge you to view it not as “paying your dues” for reading the story, but as an opportunity to interact with the person behind it. You don’t have to be long-winded. Tell them what your favorite part of it was. Pick out something that was unique about it and ask about their inspiration. Talk about how it made you feel or what it reminds you of. You won’t regret it. 

Beware the false flags

Just a warning to everybody, please be aware of white supremacists bloggers posing as minorities saying wildly inflammatory, offensive things in an effort to bait other groups and sow discord within the left.

I just caught out a blogger pretending to be Black saying Jews were leaches on society and that Hitler had been in the right. They started off with a vaguely SJ-sounding post but then their language descended into alt-right speak real fucking quick, and I knew there was no goddamn way they were who they claimed. One look at their archive proved they were a white supremacists who had actually posted years worth of violent anti-Black commentary.

I know it’s easy to get worked up and taken in on here when we feel attacked—we’ve all fallen victim to trolls—but if somebody claims to be a Black person but uses Nazi language about Jews, or a Jewish person but uses German eugenics-based anti-immigrant language, or Arab but uses old Confederate language about Black people, and so on, please be very wary, check, and block.

They have been doing this on Twitter for a while, creating almost laughably bad accounts of what racists think Jews, Black folks, Latinxs, etc. sound like, and obviously Tumblr is the next frontier.

Just beware, trust your instincts, and remember: IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A NAZI, IT’S PROBABLY A NAZI.

Don’t worry about what other people think… depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, flashbacks… call it what you like, but don’t ever be ashamed of the difficulties you’re facing because of circumstances you were put in that were beyond your control.
You are beautiful and brave… you have won a war and have the battle scars to prove it. Some people keep them on the outside …
You just happen to keep yours on the inside.

i thought about death last on a tuesday. i thought about how decay is supposed to smell sweet and i wondered what that meant for its taste. i have no intention to find out, though i know curiosity, like cat to mouse, has a way of digging her claws in.

i thought about life last night. not just the sunrise, or the stars. not just the way the world goes dizzy at the edges when you hold your breath, but the way that the air feels in the aftermath of a storm. particles lightning-charged with the same kind of life that lingers in the synapses of a brain at the edge of discovery.

this morning i thought about you. you. you are hard to fold into words. i find that your curves do not like the way sentences feel when i try to hold them up against you, to see if i caught your image within them. the comparison is as weak as i was when i saw you last tuesday, or when you smiled at me last night.

tonight? who knows. the thing is, i think these days i laugh more than i cry, but i still think about death. i haven’t looked at the stars in a while but i still see them, and i will always watch for storms. you do not complete me as i was a person before you, but i like that we could live alone. it means we choose not to.

  • Hermione: Do you know whats weird?
  • Harry: Hmm?
  • Hermione: We literally go to a school full of ghosts... and yet people are scared of the shrieking shack because its 'haunted'
  • Harry: I've never thought about that...
  • Hermione: I mean what do they think is in there!?
Do you ever just wonder what kind of impact you have on other people? Do they think about you often? Do they repeat your jokes to their friends? Do they tell their mom about you? Did they take your advice? Do they struggle to remember your name or have they memorized the sound of your voice when you introduce yourself? Do they only miss you when they’re lonely or do you never leave their mind?

Being nonbinary is nothing to be ashamed of. You don’t have to be bursting with pride, ready to shout it from the rooftops if that’s just not who you are, but nor should you have to hide it, keep it tucked away. It’s a part of you, big or small, and you shouldn’t have to worry about life being complicated because of it, or what other people may think.


You do you. Be nonbinary. Pin the flag to your wall, or just whisper it to yourself in the middle of the night. Lead rallying cries for nonbinary support groups, or just reblog nb posts on tumblr. Be nonbinary, whatever and however that means for you.
