blogs and websites

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

Are you an artist? 

Do you create any kind of art featuring lgbt+ characters and/or focused on lgbt+ positivity/lgbt+ rights? (Yes, creative writing counts as art as well!) 

Do you want to be featured on this blog? If so, i want to hear from you! 

I want to make a post featuring some lgbt+ artists. If you would like to be included, please message me via tumblr messenger and send me a short introduction. You can include whatever you want my readers to know about yourself and your art. Please make sure to include where we can find your art! 

Here’s a sample you can use but feel free to use your own words*: 

“I am (name or alias), i identify as (labels), I (create this kind of art and it’s about this topic) and you can find it at (this tag on my blog/my ao3 link/my website etc.), (here’s an optional sentence about me or my art)” 

I’m excited to hear from you! 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

* Please do not feel forced to disclose anything that you don’t want to share! There’s no pressure to include your labels or your real name etc.

Please try to keep your introduction short, so the post doesn’t get too long. Thankyou! 

If i get a lot of entries, i may not include every entry in the post. I may make multiple posts if i get enough entries. If you are not featured in the first post, please do not take it as negative criticism of your art: I want to shine a spotlight on lgbt+ artists and i fear that in a super long post, most people would only read the first two or three introductions and scroll past the rest.

hi jasmine, just wanted to say I appreciate all the time you take out of your day to run this blog. I love seeing your responses to different posts and you are by far my favourite blog on this website (and you seem like an awesome person too) ily friend 💕

u r so sweet <3 thank u soososo much

So i don’t know if anyone on here reads my blog…but does anyone keep up with any other blogs? What are your favorite things to see and read about on a blog? More personal things like writings and photography? Or recipes or day-to-day things? Something else? (blog meaning like my website…not tumblr)

i hate how this site shames girls for enjoying anything & everything . you like pastel colors n shit? fuck you. plants&succulents? animals? stereotypical tumblr girl.  non-feminine stuff? hairdye? stop being edgy. fandoms? bands? cringe!! etc etc.. like, can we please be nice to girls in 2017? can yall just let them like what they want as long as it doesnt hurt anybody, for once??

Hope you have an awesome day/night everyone, please do take care and always think of positive side of things. Even the world is as cruel as it is now, always remember that you are strong and you are not alone, and everyone loves you for who you are.

How do you dodge discourse (tm) so well?

whenever there’s something going on i usually just avoid going in tags and go to other blogs i follow to reblog content! :o normally though the only time i hear about it is if i go into the overwatch tag and see something or if someone mentions it to me via an ask!! honestly, sometimes it’s just better to not get involved at all…

(not-so-) complete list of s4 fuckery

-brushoff of the water imagery in T6T as related to Sherlock’s childhood even though HE DIDN’T KNOW/REMEMBER HOW VICTOR TREVOR DIED

-inconsistency/unrealism in “sherlock dives into work” scenes at start of T6T

-john fake-typing a blog post that takes place AFTER mary gives birth when SHE IS STILL PREGNANT and IT ISN’T EVEN AN ACTUAL BLOGGING WEBSITE BUT AN IMAGE ON HIS IMAGE VIEWER (??????)

-the glowing/really glowing/dark skull picture throughout s4

-mary’s unrealistic death (which the show TOLD US was unrealistic per HLV)

-lamp hell

-never saw the “other version” of mary giving birth as confirmed by setlock

-Sherlock never reads contents of John’s note from the end of T6T

-double scenes in T6T that don’t quite match

-Using “T6T” even though it was used as the name for an entirely different case on John’s blog already (you can’t tell me they couldn’t have come up with something else unless this was intentional)

-barely seeing Rosie/not seeing her at all in TLD

-nurse in TLD looks like Mary

-Sherlock’s injection marks on the opposite arm from where they should be given his handedness/in the same location as the IV drips of TD-12

-John beating the absolute crap out of Sherlock, and we’re supposed to think that’s okay due to his sorrow for a wife with whom we never saw him share a genuinely tender moment

-the disappearing blood in the morgue scene

-blog fuckery during the hospital scene (why do characters who like the blog have any issue realizing it’s John’s blog?  that’s never been a problem in the past, for instance, THoB w/Dr. Frankland)

-dark sex parallels in the Culverton-suffocates-Sherlock scene

-HUGE exchange about the importance of romance just…not developed any further

-fade out/establishing shot after John and Sherlock hug

-LADY SMALLWOOD’S NAME CHANGE MY GOD THIS ONLY BOTHERS ME SO MUCH BECAUSE NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT IT

-”love” mattering so much this episode…and not being followed up in the last episode

-Eurus shooting John…then that non-tranquilizer gun is suddenly a tranquilizer gun and John’s A-OK…????

-jumping out the windows of 221B and being JUST FINE, I SUPPOSE

-the entire horror-movie fuckery of almost the entirety of TFP…I mean, REALLY?  This just isn’t anything like what this show has ever been before, and not in a good way

-Sherlock ignoring Vatican Cameos (while we’re supposed to think John and Sherlock’s relationship is healed by the end of the episode)

-Eurus making weird observations about her BROTHER’S sexual history…and even if this is a poor-taste attempt to tell us something about Sherlock’s sexuality, once again, IT IS IGNORED.

-Eurus being glossed over as a terrifying violent rapist

-garridebs.  ugh.  i can’t.

-WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO MOLLY????  NO.  SHE KNOWS BETTER.  SHE KNOWS SHE NEEDS TO MOVE ON.  HER ENGAGEMENT ENDED BECAUSE TOM WAS TOO MUCH OF A WATERED-DOWN SHERLOCK STAND-IN BUT GOD LET HER REALIZE SHE NEEDS SOMEONE HER OWN, SOMEONE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM SHERLOCK.  AS A CHARACTER SHE DESERVES BETTER TREATMENT BY THE WRITERS.  SHE IS SMARTER THAN THIS.

-blatantly using the “I love you” in the trailer to make the audience believe Sherlock was going to make a real love confession (even without canon Johnlock, I’d have swallowed this better if he was being sincere to SOMEONE, even though John is the only character who would make sense in that context)

-making the best villain of the show (Moriarty) watered down by having been a weird little Eurus-puppet

-Moriarty coming to Sherrinford just to record reaction gifs

-Mycroft’s inconsistent characterization 

-complete cluelessness by old Mr. and Mrs. Holmes…and calling Sherlock “the adult”, and their parental negligence…all of this is really encompassed by the sheer unlikelihood of Eurus being what she is depicted to be

-Eurus’ magical powers that make literally no sense

-The dog bowl for a dog that isn’t a dog, but a boy

-The well that only Eurus knows about (??????)

-Sherlock ignoring John in the well to play with his sister and try to make up for a childhood slight 

-John suddenly being free of his well-chains

-Mycroft being shooed away offscreen

-Mary’s second beyond-the-grave video recording and voiceover…UGH, YOU VILLAIN, THEY ARE NOT YOUR BOYS.

-never got that “29 pages” scene

-never got that “Martin’s emotional filmed-alone scene”

-lots of sets shown to us where no scenes we’ve seen so far were shot (i.e. John’s bedsit from s1)

-recycled soundtrack in TFP

-THE. MOST. EGREGIOUS. QUEERBAITING.  

That’s…not even close to everything. We were told.  We listened.  Then, they retconned everything we were told and made the world a shittier place in the process.  I DO NOT understand, and I feel so bad for everyone who was so depending on this turning out differently.  I truly believed it would; I really thought they were better than this.
