Who are you to judge the life i live
i know i’m not perfect and i don’t live to be.
but before you start pointing fingers
make sure your hands are clean.

Stop Assuming Sheith is Problematic

Canon confirmed Shiro is a teen just like Keith.

Canon confirmed Shiro is a teen just like Keith.

Canon confirmed Shiro is a teen just like Keith.

Seriously, there cannot be a discourse over a “fact” that doesn’t actually exist. The assumption that Shiro is somehow 20+ is one that the fandom has convinced itself of - but it’s just that: an assumption. The producers of the show have stated that Shiro is in the same age group as the rest of the team, or a teenager. That means at most he is 19, which is very likely not 5 years older than Keith, where it then would be as problematic as this fandom seems to think.

It’s fine if the ship doesn’t suit your taste, or doesn’t have enough evidence for you, or just isn’t aesthetically appealing. Whatever.

I am not saying that a huge age difference between these characters would not be problematic. It certainly would be. The people that ship Sheith under the impression that there might be such an age difference might be considered problematic, but I don’t ship shame personally.

Regardless, I am saying that that issue does not actually apply to this ship.

Plus, why would the main producer of the show and Shiro’s VA show clear support for a ship if it is presumably a pedo one? Think.

TL;DR? Get your head out of your ass and get your facts together before you attack/throw shade at people and a ship for something that isn’t actually true.

Seriously guys, don’t bandwagon just because a few people are misinformed. Be better. Don’t cause non-existent discourse over something w/o evidence first.

At the very least, keep your discontent out of the tag.

[Edit] For those of us that ship Sheith - hell, even those of you that don’t or prefer Klance - please spread this like wild fire. This information will have to spread if we are going to clear this up. We all have to do our part.

Thank you.

GOT7 Scandal (read BEFORE you judge)

I could have never said it better than this wow. It’s a combination of ignorance, peer pressure, and innocent decisions that ended up bad ones. Read before you judge, people, don’t start pointing fingers right out the gate.

“I don’t know where to start. I just found out about the situation about an hour ago, and I’ve been monitoring tweets and comments on articles and forums since then. I think I’ve got the basic gist of what’s happened, but feel free to correct me if I’ve missed something.

First off, I’d like to say that I am from Arcadia (but please don’t doxx me). I recognized several people from the pictures and videos, and I know what kind of people they are. I know what circle Mark came from before he was scouted. A small portion of people from Arcadia are ABGs and white-washed, and they could honestly care less about K-Pop and Korean culture. In these past few years especially, more and more underage people have been getting turnt and faded all of the time, and they’ll rave and go to kick-backs starting from freshman year of high school. It’s the sad reality. The N-word is tossed around like it’s nothing, especially because there is virtually no African-American presence in Arcadia. Most of Arcadia is made up of Asian-Americans and elderly Caucasians. We live in a bubble of sorts and most of us have had a very different high school experience from the typical American.

Most students from Arcadia High School don’t engage in this type of behavior, at least not until they enter college, but we’re definitely getting to the point where we are like a typical American high school now, just with a huge emphasis on academia. And I’ll say it outright: people from Arcadia and the San Gabriel Valley care a lot about their popularity, social media presence, and “likes.” So I’m not surprised that Mark’s friends took this grand opportunity to make their presence known to IGOT7s, knowing that their follower counts would instantly skyrocket. Joey and Jessica’s Instagrams are testament to that. As an Arcadian and a friend of Joey’s, I’m ashamed of their actions. They should’ve kept this private party to themselves, but of course they wouldn’t pass up such a goldmine for like-farming.

And apparently, their behavior during the concert was atrocious as well. They do not have experience with K-Pop concerts. For them, concerts are equivalent to raves and music festicals like Hard Summer, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, etc. It’s normal to go these festivals while drunk and/or drugged, and to go completely wild in the audience. Not to mention, wearing minimal clothing is normal as well. So I’m honestly not surprised that they were apparently drunk and acting crazily, because to them, it’s what a normal music festival is like.

With Yugyeom’s situation, it’s tough to judge. Because yes, he was technically drinking as a minor in the United States. But in Korea, he is legal. And he might not have known about the alcohol age limit in America. (Not to mention, there were other underage drinkers at the party). Of course, he should have been informed, but let’s just give him the benefit of the doubt and say he didn’t know. There was likely a lot of peer pressure from Mark’s friends, being that it was a typical college party scene, and they probably told him to relax and take a couple of shots. As a foreigner who likely wanted to fit in with the “cool kids,” he probably took the shots. It’s funny to see your friends drunk, so the girls who SnapChatted him likely wanted to showcase this, forgetting that because Yugyeom is a K-Pop celebrity, things like this are going to heavily impact his and GOT7’s image negatively.

As for Bambam, I’m quite dismayed, but I can understand why he said it. Like I said earlier, Arcadia has a very small percentage of African-Americans living here. We do not know the trials and tribulations that the African-American community has undergone throughout centuries, because of the N-word and other derogatory terms. In pop culture, these racial slurs trend and so, because people want to be “edgy and cool,” they adopt these terms into their vocabulary. I’m almost postive that Mark’s friends were casually using the N-word to address each other and Bambam likely picked it up to fit in. In an environment like that, it’s very easy to be pressured into doing and saying small things like that. But that doesn’t excuse him for saying it whatsoever. As a celebrity with large followings in countries all over the world, it’s important to be aware of other cultures and the sensitive topics that should not be broached. The N-word is one of them. And considering that there have already been several controversies surrounding the N-word within K-Pop, most of these idols should be aware that this word should be immediately black-listed from their vocabulary. He could have used any other word in the English dictionary to address Mark while they were taking pictures, but he chose that one and I am extremely disappointed that he did. I can’t imagine how African-American IGOT7s and Bambam-stans must be feeling, to have this racial slur tossed around by someone they look up to and admire.

I’m not going to talk about Mark’s tattoo, because that’s really nothing in comparison to everything else that happened. And the whole Junior and Jessica thing is kind of unnecessary. I’m really glad Youngjae decided to stay at the hotel, because he also could’ve been easily influenced to drink as a minor in the United States, while being legal in Korea. And I’m extremely glad that JB and Jackson didn’t get caught up in anything either. Not to mention, Jackson’s probably having a hard time already with the whole support-China political issue happening. And no, I’m not going to get into that, because honestly, I am just so emotionally drained right now and that issue is a world of its own. I don’t even think I could write a well-informed post on that, because I don’t personally know the issues felt by those directly affected by this situation. And as a Chinese-American, I know Mainlanders get hated on for a lot of things and they do deserve it a lot of the times. I’m just going to respect the idols for whatever they decide to do, whether they speak up or not, because there might be a lot of things happening behind the scenes that the public is unaware of.

These past three hours have been crazy, with reading all of the articles, comments, and tweets about the Chinese politics and the GOT7 scandals. It’s just really sad that GOT7 has scandals now and that they happened in my city, because of the actions of my peers. I am honestly so done with K-Pop’s 2016.

(i might remove this post later because i really dont wanted to be doxxed, but we’ll see. so if you want this post to stay, please dont try and find out who i am. thank you.)”

anonymous asked:

What do you think about Clem shooting the guy that sold her bullets? It seemed pretty out of character tbh, she knows better than to wave guns around. I don't agree with the people who say Clem is just an asshole this season, but her killing a man and then trying to lie her way out of it was surprising

FIRST ALL– I want to say how ANGRY this made me.

Let me point out that Clementine did not INTENTIONALLY shoot Eli, it was manslaughter if you want to call it anything, far from murder. And you’re right, Clementine wouldn’t throw a gun around because she wasn’t. She knew, and believed the gun would not fire, hence why she had it out.

If you were paying attention to the situation at all. Clementine confronted Eli, because earlier the bullets he traded her failed to work correctly, failing to fire at a walker and nearly killing her while she entered Prescott. Despite that, she entered Eli’s den and wanted to talk things through with civil means, because she knows better than to walk in screaming and throwing fists, Eli however kept trying to brush her off and ignore her when she wanted to cancel the trade as he failed to keep his end of the deal and RIPPED HER OFF, thus nearly killing her earlier. So Clementine lost her patience.

Example of him trying to avoid her.

This, of course, angers her and since he kept pulling excuse after excuse, she knew very well they wouldn’t fire, or work at that matter and pulled her gun out to demonstrate, as well use it as a fear factor to gain the favor of those watching because she’s in the right, she was ripped off and Eli won’t acknowledge it, and when exposed… he stands up to straight up STAB HER which Javi thankfully stops by intervening. By now, Clementine ( as well as ANYBODY ) is clearly angry at him and demands what she’s owed and attempts to demonstrate again to show her point, the bullet like the others does malfunction but goes off unfortunately, killing Eli.

You can tell the bullet was faulty, yes it did it’s job but look how it is? It clearly had already melted within itself and didn’t even properly go off, but was close enough to fire enough impact on Eli’s skull to kill him. That one fired, but the rest are shit and either will not fire or fire shitty ones like that and clog up the gun. And yes, Clementine is reacting like a real serial killer here * note the sarcasm *, she’s clearly distraught because she didn’t think it would fire, the bullets were clogging her gun and it had finally fire after enough metal filled the nozzle and she had no idea. I may fucking note that you failed to say in your question, how you fail to actually acknowledge that her killing him as an ACCIDENT. She had no reason to straight up kill him, nor would she even dare of doing in society walls, and the use of intimidation to make him give her what he owed her didn’t work in her favor and it accidentally kills Eli, thus earning her a reputation, and not a good one which is the last thing she needs. Clementine needs access to places like Prescott to survive, so she can trade, get supplies and continue her business, HENCE why she lied, she can’t lose the valuable resource of being able to come into a society where she can receive help for whatever she’s working toward, she needs access and as well not get herself killed because of this accident. Not sure if you have noticed really but in a lot of TWD societies, if a ‘murder’ happens, whether intentional or not, you pay the price with your own life, that’s why Clementine panicked and thought of an alibi, thankfully Prescott is a lot more considerate and will listen to the sides but Clementine still loses her spot in their society and now that’s gone, and Eli’s scam came back and bit him in the arse.

So before you start pointing fingers at Clementine, I suggest you do some research.

I’m so annoyed right now. Today was great and I should’ve went to bed after the wedding because now people are forgetting their meds. #1: chill out with the bullshit about that not being MM in the car it’s her, your fucking bubble was popped get over it. #2: NO, absolutely NO peppersmint did not create the pic that was sent to Deanne. Y'all keep jumping on a fucking bandwagon. Grow up, move on, do some damn research before you start pointing fingers.

Draco Malfoy Dirty One-Shot: Angry (Requested by Anon)

“I can’t fucking believe you right now.” he hissed at you as you made your way into the Slytherin common room. You had come back early from dinner, mostly because Draco thought you were flirting with George Weasley. 

“I didn’t do anything, Draco!” you shouted at him. “George and I were just talking, that’s it!" 

"Oh yeah?!” he retaliated, “Then why was his hand around your waist, huh?”

You rolled your eyes, “Because I tripped and was about to fall flat on my ass when he caught me! Maybe you should thank him." 

He huffed at you. "Bullshit.”

You glared at him. Did he seriously not believe you? Why was he so unwilling to trust you? “Bullshit?! Are you kidding me?! I was not flirting with him, I don’t know how many times I have to tell you that. Maybe before you start pointing fingers and naming names, maybe you should take a look at yourself! You looked like you were having quite an interesting conversation with Pansy tonight!”

His eyes burned holes into your body. “Are you shitting me? I wasn’t flirting with Pansy, why would I flirt with Pansy?”

You let out an irritated sigh and stared at him. “Oh I don’t know, maybe because she has this ridiculous crush on you and you did nothing what-so-ever to stop her advances on you tonight?!”

He punched the wall. “I was not flirting with Pansy! She was flirting with me, and I barely said anything to her!”

You stomped forward until you stopped right in front of his face. “Why should I believe you?”

“Because I’m your boyfriend! I love you!” he shouted in your face. 

“Exactly! If I have to believe you for that reason, then you should believe me when I say I’m not flirting with George because I’m your girlfriend and I love you!” you shouted back. 

He looked down at the floor, clearly still angry. He still wasn’t believing you.

You stared at him angrily before making your way to the door. “Y'know what, maybe I should back and flirt with George. That way I can show you what real flirting looks like.”

Just as you were about to open the door, you were roughly turned around and pinned against the door. Your breath was caught in your throat and Draco’s face was dangerously to yours.

His body pressed up against yours and you could feel something hard in his pants. 

You gave him an angry look. “What are you gonna do?” you taunted, “Fuck me?”

He growled low in his throat before attacking your lips with his, kissing you very roughly. You kissed back and bit down harshly on his lip, making him open his mouth and letting you slip your tongue in his mouth. 

Your tongues harshly fought with each other, and you were suddenly eager to get his clothes off of him. Your hands pushed the robes off of his shoulders and undid his tie. Then you started unbuttoning his shirt. 

He had you pressed against the door, one hand wrapped around your waist, the other pressed against the door. 

Once you had managed to get his top garments off of him, he started grinding his hips into yours, making moans come out of your mouth. His mouth left yours to suck on your neck, going straight to your sweet spot. You moaned and closed your eyes, letting Draco do what he wanted with you. 

When he left a mark on you, he pulled away and pushed your robes off of you and stripped you of your tie and shirt. You went back to kissing and both of you went to work removing your lower clothing. He pushed your skirt down and you unbuckled his pants and he let them fall to the ground. 

Now it was just the two of you in your undergarments.

 He grabbed your ass and whispered into your mouth as he was kissing you, “Jump.”

You immediately wrapped your legs around his waist and he dropped you onto the couch. You pulled him back on top of you with your hands on his shoulders, his hands on your waist.

He broke away to slip off your panties and slowly stroke your folds. 

“You like this, don’t you?” he sneered, “You like it when I touch you like this, yeah?” You didn’t say anything, you just dug your head into the couch and bit your lip.

He slowly slipped one finger in and began rubbing your clit with his thumb, making you quietly moan and pick up the pace of your breathing. 

He began pumping agonizingly slow. You moaned a little louder. “Draco…go faster." 

"Beg for it.” he commanded.

“Draco, for the love of God…go faster” you managed to whimper out.

He inserted another finger and began pumping faster, his thumb violently rubbing your clit. You cried out a bit and brought your hands up to your breasts, massaging them and flicking your nipples in between your fingers. 

“Do you think Weasley could do this?” he rasped out, “You think he could touch you like this, and make you moan and beg like I am now? You think he can make you feel this good?”

You let out a high pitched moan when he found your g-spot and he kept pumping. 

“Mm” you whimpered out and he smirked at you. Just as you were about to come, he pulled out. 

“God dammit Draco.” you breathed out and you sat up to look at him. He smirked and hovered over you, positioning himself at your entrance.

“Look at me.” he commanded harshly. He was inside you with one quick, powerful thrust and you moaned and arched your back into his touch. He was pounding into you, his dick hitting your g-spot each time. 

“Mm, baby you’re so fucking tight.” he let out. You wrapped your legs around him and let him continue to mercilessly pound into you. You brought your hands to his back and started clawing at his skin, leaving long scratches down his back. He took his bottom lip in between his teeth and bit down on it hard. The faster and harder he was pounding into you, the more scratches you left on his back. And damn, did that feel fucking amazing. 

“I…bet Weasley…can’t…fuck you like this” Malfoy managed to moan out. 

You had enough of him bringing up George. Why the fuck couldn’t he just accept that what you were telling him was the truth?! 

Using all the strength you had, you pushed him so that you were on top of him now, his back landing against the couch cushions rather hard. 

Draco looked at you, he was clearly surprised. 

You took his hands and pushed them down onto your hips, his fingers quickly digging into the skin. 

You bounced up and down on top of him rather harshly. Draco moaned loudly and dug his head into the couch, his hands still tightly holding onto you. 

You were bouncing as fast as you could, and then you started slowing down. 

Draco’s eyes snapped open. “Don’t slow down.” he breathed out, “Please.”

You started circling your hips around his penis, your lower area pressing down onto his skin.

“Bet Pansy can’t ride you like this.” you said, “Could she ride you like I can?”

You started bouncing again and Draco’s breathing accelerated majorly, as did yours. Moans and groans both left your mouth and Draco sat up, one arm wrapping around your waist and the other balancing himself against the couch; your arms tightened themselves around his shoulders. 

He started thrusting upwards to match your bounces. Your lips met and you roughly kissed each other. You both were sure that there would be bruises left on your mouths when you were done. He bit down on your lip and lightly groaned into your mouth. His hand left your waist, and went to grab your face. Your hands slid themselves down to his neck and you bounced down on him harder, making you moan loudly.

The harder you both thrusted, the more moans and groans left your mouth. This was no doubt the best sex you guys had ever had. Too bad it was because you both were angry with each other.

Your orgasms came to their climax and you came first, him following close behind. You both slowed down until you came to a stop. He fell backwards on the couch and you collapsed on top of him, your breathing still extremely erratic.

His hands found your lower back and started rubbing small circles on it, while you started tracing shapes into his chest.

When his breathing had calmed down enough, he started to speak. “I’m sorry I didn’t believe you.”

You stopped and looked up at him. “I’m sorry too.”

He sighed. “I guess it’s just…I get scared a lot because I know you can do so much better with me, yet you’re still here. I’m just scared some guy’s gonna come and sweep you off your feet and you’ll leave me." 

His eyes were cast to the ceiling, and you could tell he was genuinely scared.

"Hey, look at me.” you said softly. 

His eyes met yours, waiting for what you had to say. “I love you. Even though you can be kind of a dick sometimes, I love you.” you chuckled a little and he let out a small laugh, a smile coming to his face.

“You don’t have to worry about me going anywhere. ‘Cause it’s not happening.” you smiled at him.

He smiled back and took your face in one hand and kissed you.

“I love you too."

Dylan x Reader


“Hey Gorgeous.” Dylan chuckled as he shuffled his feet awkwardly, he felt bad asking you to put him up but he really didn’t have anywhere else to go.

 

“Massett what are you doing here?” You asked as you crossed your arms and lent on the doorframe.

 

“I was um… wondering if I could stay here for a few nights?” Dylan admitted as he rubbed the back of his head and smirked at you.

 

“Pay for what you use and keep your stuff tidy.” You sighed, stepping out of the way and letting him in.

 

“Thanks.” Dylan mumbled.

No, I am not appropriating culture

Before anyone asks, no I am not appropriating and here is why.

Vodou is an ever evolving practice and spirituality. It has moved from the heart of Africa to Afro-Carribean islands, and all the way to the infamous port city of New Orleans! So as a resident of USA I am not appropriating. Secondly, it has also changed its form and the way it looks to outisders. It takes on other practices like New Orleans Voodoo, Obeah, and Yoruba. Therefore as someone who is not initiated and does not know exact ritual to every festival and encounter with the lwa I will also not be appropriating. Finally, for those of you who would dare go there Vodou goes beyond race! Do not dare say that because I am not black that I can not practice. I am very much aware of the suffering of the people. Not to mention that I do have a reasonable amount of Creole heritage and can trace back to the entering of Vodou to the western world.

So please before you start pointing fingers read and try to understand. I fell very much in love with the spirits and my desire to serve them is not disrespectful. If you have any questions please don’t be afraid to ask!

Clarification

I’m not really into theory or conspiracy. I’m more lenient towards facts, proofs and evidence. However, I like reading people’s theory because it opens my mind to think out of my comfort zone.

The fact that I’m more open minded is because I took critical thinking module previously. The result of learning how to think critically makes me look at everything with an open mind and accept the possibility that it might be true or false. 

But then, your mind and my mind doesn’t work the same way.

I totally understand when there are people who couldn’t see kaisoo the way we do because everyone’s mind has limitation to everything due to several possible factors. However, we, kaisoo shippers might be delulu is also a possibility.

And here I come to clarify my previous statement.

If you read all my previous posts, I don’t come out with theory. I make an analysis based on what I see and observed or even analysis of someone’s else theory (supporting/objecting it with proofs). Theory and analysis are two different things.

[google definition]
Theory: a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.
Analysis: a detailed examination of the elements or structure of something, typically as a basis for discussion or interpretation.

ideas ≠ examination

I might be bias in my analysis because I’m a kaisoo shipper myself. However, if you really have read all my analysis, I don’t simply point out things without laying out the facts first. That’s my style (kris t.t).

Before you start accusing people that they are delusional, try to think about it first. You need to understand the content, digest it and come out with your own judgement. If you have something to share that is opposed to my analysis, I’m more than happy to listen to your own point of view regarding the issue. However, you need to come out with an equal amount of analysis as mine before you start pointing fingers at me and accuse me of such things.

If the only thing you can say is ‘what a delulu kaisoo shipper. both of them are just close friends’, it’s better you stay quiet than wasting my time with your effortless and empty words. You just introduced yourself to me as a less intelligent person. Bravo to that!

So that’s all. Thanks for reading~ Bye!

Incident with Ashton’s Microphone

Okay so ever since I came on tumblr and went through my 5sos tag all I’ve been seeing is people going ape shit because Ashton’s microphone was “turned off”. But can we sit back down and be actually think what could have happened like a technical problem or problem with wiring or maybe the batteries in the mic ran out cause that happens all the time (I work with my school’s technical crew and I handle sound I know what I’m talking about) even when we do a sound check they work and we get to the performance they stop working. IM NOT HATING ANYONE WHOSE GONE AND LASHED OUT CAUSE IF THE MIC WAS PURPOSEFULLY TURNED OFF THEN I WOULD BE HELLA MAD TOO.. All I’m trying to say is that its A LOT of pressure running a show this big even when I handle sound at school it a lot of pressure cause your not just handling one person’s mic, your handle so many other little things and MISTAKES HAPPEN THINGS GO WRONG and when we are in the middle of a performance we can’t necessarily get up change the mic or the batteries or trouble shoot whatever the problem may be. So I’m not hating anyone…All i’m trying to say is that lets sit back and think through what could have happened and do you think John (their sound guy) would have purposefully turned Ash’s mic off? So lets be calm about the situation its a mistake it happened…BUT IF IT WAS PURPOSEFULLY TURNED OFF (which i don’t think the case is however) THEN A BIG FUCK YOU TO THE PERSON WHOSE BEHIND IT. 

I know I might get hate for this but I’ve been handling sound at events for 5 years I know when stuff like this happens, I know half way through mics turn off and to everyone else it looks like the mic was purposefully turned off but 95% of the time its not the case cause when a mic turns off or the batteries run out and there’s any kind of a problem with it no one can hear the person in their in-ears not even the sound people and rest of the tech support crew, so lets be kind and appreciative to their team who most likely tried to resolve the problem but couldn’t don’t let their efforts go unnoticed cause we are really important people when it comes to running shows, we handle all the lights, sound and backstage so yeah…Sorry about the rant…

ALSO QUICKLY I LOVE THAT WE ALL COME TOGETHER AS A FAMILY WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS SO PEACE AND LOVE GUYS but sometimes we need to sit and think before we start pointing fingers :-) ( I LOVE YOU ALL SORRY IF I COME ACROSS AS BRAGGING OR BEING MEAN THAT IS NEVER MY INTENTION LOVE YOU)
