be less judging

His name is Jelani Maraj and he is a pedophile. He is a pedophile, a rapist, and he’s gonna burn in hell.

The “fast tailed girls” narrative that perpetuates the community supports this disgusting request. Black Children are often perceived as older and less innocent.

The judge should add more years for this disgusting request.

The importance of context!
I had previously translated the first bits of this interview that came out yesterday, and sorely wanted to see a less butchered version. Thankfully, sometimes Japanese TV does come through XD (still cut though)

Isn’t the term “expressiveness” something that’s fundamentally difficult to put into words? If you tried it’d be something like “that pose was pretty” and that’s part of “expressiveness” too.

Taking it to the extreme, what comes to mind is “why not just talk to them?”. Why not just face the judges and talk to them - that in it’s own way is also “expressiveness” isn’t it?

Looking to your bedside table, the illuminated digits of the clock pull a groan from your lips as you toss your head back. It was 3am and you couldn’t go back to sleep. Throat feeling hoarse and with a dry tongue, you admit defeat as you lift back the covers and swing your legs over the side of your bed.

With a sigh, you walk out of your room in the compound and make your way down the halls of the sleeping quarter.

Tony had noticed you when you were an agent working for SHIELD. You didn’t know this at the time but he was keeping an eye on you and during the HYDRA/SHIELD fiasco, you and handful of other agents worked to help end the programme.

After Natasha had leaked the files, you continued to work with the Avengers, helping navigate them through missions, hack in to programmes and gain any intel that would aid them. You thought that was coming to an end when Tony got back from Siberia because you didn’t hear from any of them.

Rumours of what happened soon spread amongst the few of you that were bought in to help from time to time. But this wasn’t something you ever expected. The Avengers were no longer a team.

I find the word lesbian so uncomfortable and idk why? I just use gay which is absolutely fine but i think the only reason I feel the need to use the term gay is bc i feel like people will judge me less? I think that I think people will stereotype me more if I use lesbian instead of gay. I'm sorry this is ridiculous I'm just so weirdly uncomfortable with it -it feels like some sort of bad word. Idk where I'm going with this - do you have any thoughts? Thanks!

I feel like you should use whatever word is most comfortable for you. As long as that internalized negative bias against that word doesn’t carry over to other people (other women who identify as lesbians), then I don’t think it’s a huge deal.

I think it is something worth meditating on, bc I don’t think your feelings about that word come from a very healthy place– especially if your asking for advice about it.

I’m really not the authority on you or your emotions, so take what I say with a grain of salt (I don’t truly know why you feel what you feel), but I’d wager that your feelings about the word “lesbian” are in part, the unfortunate result of living in a society predominantly run by straight men.

hey neil, random question: would fast-food restaurant mascots qualify as gods in the american gods universe? i feel they wouldn't be too out of place among the new gods. also because the idea of ronald mcdonald the clown locked in a brutal, bloody battle against ancient norse and greek deities sounds both hilarious and terrifying.

I don’t think they are gods in the American Gods universe… but they are, more or less, in Judge Dredd’s universe…

Hide Week 2017 Drabbles 

Day 1: 永 eternity / forever

Hide never was quite able to grasp the concept of eternity.

It only makes sense that all things would come to an end. That’s how it works. That’s what makes certain things so precious, so worth fighting for while they still had the chance. It’s the temporality of their world that makes what matters, matter.

Which is why he’s never been able to figure out why it appeal so much to certain people. The notion of “forever” frightened him at times. What if bad things could keep going on forever? What if he’d stay as he is—so guarded and flawed—for eternity? He knows the latter would pretty much up to him to decide, but what if he’s forced to remain that way because of circumstances that keep repeating endlessly? What if he can’t change even if he wants to? It’s not a pleasant thought, to say the least.

But of course, he supposes when people say “forever” they’d usually wish for good things. Happy things. Things that’s once always been so rare for him but now take the form of the days he spends with a boy, a best friend. Though it’s strange; he hasn’t once found himself wishing for those moments to last forever as far as he remembers. He’s always only grounded in the present when he’s with him, not at all bothered about a future stretched towards a distant “eternity”.

Then again, with the way time seems to stop whenever they’re together, perhaps eternity has always been closer to him than he thought.

I want to redo my mods folder….. again.

You know at some point in the future, the world is going to be ruled and populated by the disabled, the chronically ill, the mentally ill, and the neurodivergent. Because we’ll have gotten so fucking sick of being the first to go under survival of the fittest, and being the experiments, and some politician deciding they can make a quick buck by wiping us out, and being the sacrificial pawns for your protests and ideal candidate, and being judged as less than human that we’ll have fucking killed all of you before you could kill us first.

Language Barrier

a/n: Originally based on conversations with @egggplannt and rekindled by her post.

This is also another reason why we should not be allowed to collab. 

If you have any questions about anything said by Arthur, you’d have to ask her because honestly, I have no idea. All of Arthur’s dialogues were provided by her :^)


Alfred squinted down at his map, with the paper all crumpled and folded from being shoved haphazardly into his raincoat pocket.

He had no idea where he would go next, but he supposed the people around him would judge him less if he looked like he did.

Oh, those beady British eyes. Unwanted attention seemed to follow him every wrong turn he took, to every pole he ran into while he was too busy deciphering the winding lines and tiny print of the map. England was a dangerous, hostile, and frankly judgemental place. Nothing like the comparatively warm and welcoming arms of the U.S.A he’d left behind.

“Oh jeez-”

The wind wasn’t a help. The howling horror left him with a daunting choice and It was either the map or the umbrella. He chose the umbrella. The decision tore his only piece of sanity amongst the confusion that was England from his hands and left it soaking in a puddle at his feet.

Alfred clutched his umbrella to his chest and accepted defeat.

The Formidable Country of England: 1, Foreigner: 0.
