because people need it

Friendly reminder that religious gay people exist!! You do not have to choose one or the other! You’re not a bad gay for being religious and you’re not a bad follower for being gay! You can be both! They’re both important parts of your identity and there’s nothing wrong with being both!

“We live in a society because we need each other. People need people. It can be tiring to deal with others; especially the ones you disagree with. Those who think differently from you. Whether it’s someone from another culture, or a girl who’s a lame Facebook friend from elementary school. In a peaceful society with equal rights, we have to manage to listen to, and try to understand one another. Perhaps it’s easier to understand if we focus on what we have in common rather than the differences. Look for what we agree with, instead of what we disagree with. Maybe, if we see the worst in others, it is exactly that what they’ll show us.

When your favourite games finally get a proper, good-sized fandom, but the tags are filled with jacksepticeye stuff, because he played them and that’s why they’re popular.

I came to the tags to look at my Children not Jack goddammit
Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they’re popular, but good christ-

noorhelm appreciation week

day six → music

seriously in love. [ listen ] // are you never going to let anyone in again because you might get hurt? trust me, you don’t want that. it’s really lonely. because people need people. i love you, and you love me. we need to be together. say we need to be together.

The mental gymnastics people are going through to say that The Final Problem ‘actually happened’ and ‘it all made sense’. Like seriously, ‘it’s all in John’s head’ is about 10x easier. No character assassination needed either.

anonymous asked:

I think what's sad is that you have a tag just for a ex you obsess over

Oh wow. I reblog quotes that remind me of my ex. What a unique experience that is. I’m the only person in the world who misses someone they love. Never not once have I seen that on tumblr before. How evil and psychotic of me.

I’m not gonna stop talking about this. If you disrespect one of the boys don’t you fucking dare to call yourself “ahgase”. We don’t want you and don’t need you here either.

Jaebum fucking deserved better than this. Does she even know how many people want to be on her shoes? How bad Jaebum most feel because of her? We literally need to purge all those people out of the fandom

seeing the sheer amount of people who came out genuinely moves me because i’m a sap, but i do understand that there is more work to be done and improvements to be made. for many people, this is the first kind of these protests that have occurred in their lifetime and also their first step in being involved with direct action. to keep up with this momentum there should be online and physical spaces dedicated to education of all kinds because i think that’s part of what people really need right now. 

not 2 b corny but the future of activism is in our hands and we should be willing to steer it where it needs to go. 

attention vld fans!

the vld fandom has to stop bashing one another because of ships (sheith, klance, kallura, etc.) people need to recognize that ships definitely AREN’T everything in voltron. this show is just about some teens + shiro who are all good friends and paladins of the mighty robot lion voltron who fight against evil emperor zarkon in order to save the universe. Realize how in that short summary NOWHERE in there did I talk about ships.

these shipping wars must stop because even the executive producers said that so far there isn’t any romantic interactions because they want to take it slow and let the relationships happen over time.


here’s part of a recent interview the two had talking about ships:

Obviously, a lot of viewers do ‘ship characters within the show. But in two seasons you haven’t really touched on romance. Is that intentional or is it just that these characters don’t have time, with the Galrans always about to attack?
DOS SANTOS: We don’t really shy away from it necessarily. We’re not against it. But there’s business at hand that they have to attend to. When you really think about it, they’re on a ship with each other, but they haven’t really had time to do a ton of socializing and really get to know each other. Our relationships build just like our backstories do. We like to let it happen over time.
MONTGOMERY: Ultimately the big thing is, these characters have a lot on their plate and had we had a situation where the world was not at stake and they were just allowed to hang out more, we would have gone more heavily into that romance realm. But right now anyone in that situation would be like, “All right, maybe my personal love life’s going to be on the backburner. This thing is pretty important.” That’s how we treat the characters and how we feel that they would actually react in that situation.

No matter what you ship or how many “moments” they had together, in the end we don’t know what ship will be canon and what will happen. So, just respect everyone’s opinion and do not give hate towards them for loving their ship. let people be happy if their ship has a moment, not give them a hard time and make them feel bad for shipping what they love.

we live in a world completely full of hate and we tend to focus on the bad side of things, but just because we tend to doesn’t mean we should. let’s not be know as the fandom that bashes on each other because of ships and discourages one another because of their opinion; instead let’s be a fandom that respects everyone so that everyone can have a place to put out their thoughts on what they like and not be afraid of being smashed with hate. let’s show people what a great fandom we are.

 I love this fandom so much and I hate to see it get torn apart because of ships.

brooke from united states of A, i hope you do know india isn't like how kjo makes it look like on his show.

You mean to tell me, anon from idk where, that an entire country made up of a billion people, multiple religions, hundreds of languages and dialects, and members of every socioeconomic class…is NOT the way ultra rich people portray it on a celebrity talk show?! I am SHOCKED and APPALLED.

….I’ve been to India. I’ve seen enough of it to know that I’ll never truly know everything about it or its people, because it’s just that vast. You don’t need to patronize me.

man i’m at a cross country camp and fucking every upperclassman (and a lot of underclassmen too) got stoned or drunk except me because i was worried about getting caught by coaches and also because i felt like all the wasted people needed a sober person to watch over them so now i’m babysitting a bunch of wasted people and feel awkward as fuck tbh and i can’t decide if staying sober was the best choice for tonight or not because goddamn this is awkward

on the other hand, they’re too wasted to judge me so i shouldn’t feel so awkward haha

I’m doing a video editing project since I couldn’t take part in the women’s March today and I’d like you all to be involved! Send me a video of yourself singing Seize The Day from The Newsies and you could be featured in my video!! (Note: I’ll be giving priority to people who also couldn’t take part in the march, so make sure you include if you couldn’t participate because of a disability) I’ll also need footage of people actually marching, so if you have that, send me that too!

My email is abigail.smuda@yahoo.com

I’d love for this to get a ton of notes so we have a bunch of people participating, so please reblog even if you don’t want to submit something. THANK YOU!
