because we won't believe you anymore

i'm so glad you won't be reproducing, we don't need anymore aggressive whiny separatists

I’m gonna ignore the eugenicism here for a quick second to talk about the fact that someone with my politics–coalitional, solidarity-based, reparation & restitution-based, love-based, empathy-based–is being called a “separatist” (the furthest thing politically from what I am) because I talk openly about (I’m gonna go out on a limb here) racism. if you believe that isolating ourselves from white people entirely is the only way to ever achieve a world wherein we are not mistreated by them, then that says a lot more about what you think of white people than what I think of them.

You can not make it okay to be gay and Christian. The Bible explicitly says that's it's a sin. However, that does not mean that god does not love you, but he also will judge us all one day and the lukewarm will be spit out. Heed to his commands. He is love and he loves you so much and he'll make all things new to you. You don't have to defend it or look for allys because someone who is set right and sanctified through Jesus won't have to fight those things anymore. I love you and god bless!!!

so i appreciate your kind tone in this message anon, and i acknowledge and appreciate what youre saying, but i definitely have to disagree with you on the main point here (and some smaller points, but we won’t go into that). i don’t believe it’s a sin. its a conclusion i came to over 5 years ago while i was in bible college. ive done research and ive spent time praying and thinking deeply about it. thanks for your concern though.

  • Maya: Farkle, what's going on with you? You've been really quiet and distant.
  • Farkle: No, I haven't.
  • Maya: Well neither am I.
  • Farkle: Why are you avoiding Riley?
  • Maya: Why are you avoiding Riley?
  • Farkle: What are you talking about? I've been by her side the entire time.
  • Maya: And so have I.
  • Farkle: Why are you hiding your feelings from her?
  • Maya: Why are you hiding your feelings from her?
  • Farkle: Stop That!
  • Maya: Then stop with the questions!
  • Farkle: You tell her yourself or I will.
  • Maya: What about you? When are you going to confess your feelings?
  • Farkle: This isn't about me! It's about-
  • Maya: This is about you! If you care about me, go tell Riley you love her!
  • Farkle: I care about you and if you care about me, YOU go tell Riley you love her!
  • Maya: Stop putting this on me, Minkus!
  • Farkle: You're the one who keeps repeating everything I say!
  • Maya: Well, why should you tell me what to do and give me advice if you won't even live up to it yourself, huh?
  • Farkle: Fine, I'm in love with Riley. There. Are you happy? Now your turn.
  • Maya: I'm in love with Riley Matthews, my best friend.
  • Farkle: Our best friend.
  • Maya: What are we going to do?
  • Farkle: I'm not sure. All these feeling are-
  • Maya: They're not new.
  • Farkle: What?
  • Maya: We've both been in love with her since the beginning. We just reused to acknowledge it so we suppressed it until we exploded.
  • Farkle: So now we know how we feel. But Riley, we don't know how she feels.
  • Maya: Yeah, we do. She likes Lucas. It's always been Lucas for her. You said so yourself that she's still in like with him and now, they're dating. Isn't that just great?
  • Farkle: She's in like with him, that's only for now. Lucas is her first boyfriend. We don't know how long that's going to last, we're her best friends. We've been together for years. She loves us. It all just comes down to who she's in love with?
  • Maya: Looks like you're not as good as your promise.
  • Farkle: Huh?
  • Maya: You promised to love us both the same, but you chose Riley. You've always chosen Riley.
  • Farkle: So have you. You were in a triangle and even though Lucas and Riley picked each other, even though you never had feelings for Lucas like that. All this time you've been protecting Riley and wanting to make sure Lucas could pursue her happiness. You always choose Riley's happiness over your own.
  • Maya: She's Riley Matthews. A literal ray of sunshine, she deserves everything good in this world. Of course, her happiness matters more than my own because she deserves it more than me.
  • Farkle: But Maya, you can't keep putting someone else's happiness before your own.
  • Maya: I could say the same to you. It feels like being broken from the inside.
  • Farkle: Why though? We let her walk away and we're left feeling empty.
  • Maya: Because we leave pieces of ourselves in the people that we love.
  • Farkle: How do you get them back?
  • Maya: You don't. The only way to fill in the cracks is for people to trust you with their given pieces. I think that's how it works.
  • Farkle: You have me. Feel free to use me as you see fit, remember?
  • Maya: It might be different this time, but thanks Farkle. You have me too.
  • Farkle: What about Lucas?
  • Maya: What about him?
  • Farkle: What do you think about him?
  • Maya: Same as always, he's still a Huckleberry and sometimes I want to hurt him, but he's my friend and Riley's boyfriend so it's not like I can do anything about it. What about you?
  • Farkle: He's a Freak Face! But he's our friend and if there's one thing we have in common with him is that we want Riley to be happy.
  • Maya: I told Lucas to go tell Riley that he loved her at the Ski Lodge and he didn't do it.
  • Farkle: Yeah, but we told her we loved her ever since we all met. He's new at this, give him time.
  • Maya: Except it's different now. If one of us ever confess, how do you suggest we tell her we love her in a different way?
  • Farkle: You're an artist, you could express your feelings to her in that way. Me, I'm not entirely sure how I go about-
  • Maya: Creatively. Creativity feeds science, science feeds creativity. You're a genius, you're a real boy, not a robot. Feelings are stronger than science. For you, that can be overwhelming, but science doesn't always explain people. Sometimes you have to feel what you need to feel and that's the truth. The truth is always the best thing and it comes out one way or another, so no matter how long we keep this a secret from Riley, she's going to find out. I don't know how, but she will.
  • Farkle: So shouldn't we tell her ourselves instead of waiting for the universe to explode and give away our secret?
  • Maya: You're right. But knowing and accepting this new part of me is hard. If I tell her, the world we once known could change. Nature changes. People change. The three of you are my safe place and if Riley leaves...
  • Farkle: She won't. Because she loves you, she always have.
  • Maya: She's always loved you too. She may not say it as much when you're around, but she appreciates you for a lot of reasons.
  • Farkle: I guess this makes us a broken duo?
  • Maya: You just have to own it, then it won't make you feel so bad. We're perfect imperfections.
  • Farkle: Life as we know it is changing, Maya.
  • Maya: Scared?
  • Farkle: I don't know just yet, you?
  • Maya: I don't know. I don't know if I got her anymore.
  • Farkle: Me either, but you're Pluto. I don't think she'll ever stop believing in Pluto, in you.
  • Maya: And if she does, promise me one thing.
  • Farkle: What?
  • Maya: That you two both do your thing. Both of you go get in a rocket ship and become the first couple to ever be on Mars.

anonymous asked:

How do I help my friend in an emotionally abused relationship? She's only in highschool but her bf is manipulative and plays with her feelings. She's been having really bad anxiety and she won't listen to us when we tell her to break it off...

I have a friend like that.

You can’t do anything to stop them and believe me when I say this, I have tried everything to help because she told me she couldn’t handle it anymore but she always went back to him. Their partner is like a drug to them and if there’s anything I know about drug addicts, they won’t quit until they’re ready to quit. There’s two types of people: people who hit rock bottom and decide to get better because they don’t want to live like that anymore and people who hit rock bottom and decide to stay there because they don’t know how else to live.

She’s going to stay with him until he leaves her or until she realizes (on her own) that she wants better. All you can do is be there for her so she never feels alone because the worst thing to do is abandon her and make her feel like he’s all that she has, then she would want to stay with him from fear of being absolutely alone.

Do you still have doubts about stydia ever happening?? Bc I remember holland saying In a recent interview that they've only established a friendship and they're gonna continue their friendship throughout 5b and it makes me sad bc I take it won't be romantic at all anymore.. But then you get canon moments like #HeStillLikesHer .. So it's like if they weren't gonna get together then why leave those lines in there and have canon confirmation that stiles still likes lydia???

In the yeeearrs of following this show I’ve learned a few things: 

1. Don’t believe a word that comes out of Jeff Davis’ mouth;

2. Take things that the cast says with a hint of salt because they’ve all got their own biases, right;

and 3. The show will literally promo anything they think will hook a bigger audience .. we saw it with Sterek in the beginning of the show, and we see it with Stydia now. Stydia was not even a blimp on the promo radar until s4 .. even though previous seasons had so much more ‘stydia’ substance.

When you scrap all of that, there’s only the narrative left. What we’re told again and again is that there is such a limited amount of time per episode that the writers cant possibly include all that they want to include, hence plot holes and backgrounds that will never be delved into. 

So whats the narrative telling us in regard to Stydia? Obvious close ups on Lydia when the focus of the scene are Stiles and Malia …  the scene where Lydia’s bleeding out in the police station suddenly becomes a scene about Stiles when he walks in … and verbal acknowledgment that Stiles still likes Lydia … that their relationship has matured into something valid, rooted in more than just a crush. 

What a writer loves more than anything is a conclusion thats worth the story, which is why - regardless of what happens with them, whether romantic or not, we will get a solid conclusion between the two. Theres been far too much build up and upkeep for them to just drop it in the end.
