but also the opposite

survivor-surviving  asked:

Hey!! I've heard from the trans community that referring to people as the "opposite" gender is trans erasure, since it implies that there are only two genders and I since have stopped using the term. I am wondering how it is erasure? Using an analogy, hot and cold are opposite temperatures, but that doesn't mean that room temperature/warm/cool are not temperatures. I am confused please help?

Hm so I have two thoughts on this.

First I feel like it’s erasure because of society’s general view on gender - that there are two - when you say opposite people automatically think either man or woman. I also feel like opposite does imply that there are two.

When talking about with hot or cold, I still still feel like that’s implying there’s two extremes an in-betweenness. Which makes it awkward or some people maybe feel lesser? It’s not entirely accurate as other genders are on a spectrum in between man and woman. They are their own.

Sorry that’s confusing. Maybe someone else could help out? I’m not an authority because Ely and I are both cis

i can’t stop thinking about what kind of criers dan and phil would be. i feel like dan’s crying would be a slow build up. his eyes just get watery at first, and he tries so hard to keep it in, but eventually the tears start cascading down his cheeks. he’d get a runny nose and his forehead would crease out of frustration because he hates crying, but he does it all the time. when his crying hits its peak, he’d be a blubbering mess, wiping furiously at his tears and constantly blowing his nose. he doesn’t like to be comforted while he’s crying, but when he’s finished and all that’s left is tear stained cheeks, he’d cling to the closest thing, preferably another person that would play with his hair, rub his back, and comfort him quietly.

phil on the other hand is a quiet crier. it happens really suddenly because he’s not afraid to be emotional and soft. his tears build up and he doesn’t try to hold them back. his eyes get red and puffy, and he tries to wipe away the tears quickly with his sleeve. he gets sniffly, but hides it by taking deep breaths through his mouth. his eyes are glossy and doe-like when his crying reaches the climax. he likes to be held the whole way through, even if it’s just someone holding his hand or resting a hand on his knee. physical contact calms him down and helps him feel more real. his favorite thing is when people rub their fingers up and down his arm, it nearly lulls him to sleep, but it distracts him from whatever it is he’s crying about.

anonymous asked:

when you first made that "living together!" post when you and signe first moved in together, and you said "i'd also appreciate it if people didn't spam the tag with leave youtubers alone and respect youtubers relationships because that just goes overboard in the other direction", what exactly did you mean by that?

Some people, not all, like to overly “white knight” situations to grab the youtubers attention. Like a sort of “hey look how much im helping” kind of thing but that on its own can also be overboard in the opposite direction. They mean well but it can lead to a situation where you hear people talk about a bad thing more than seeing the bad thing itself.

Dont get me wrong, it’s super sweet of people to try stand up for us and I really do appreciate it.

Last broadcast rain

Bangtan did the last broadcast. We did the last broadcast and the rain was pouring down

It’s as if it had been waiting to come down

I know a little about loneliness since? since yesterday? I don’t remember but, I became fond of the rain. No one knows but, I would often go out without an umbrella and just wander (In fact, even these days I still do)

Rain and music are quite similar. Depending on the setting during that time, your expression changes according to the situation, and the implications can be different, right? There can be extended time of sorrow, also times it’s the complete opposite, to times of just purification, rest, wry smiles etc.. However I have always liked the smell of rain constantly. Is it because the dust is being washed away?

In fact the past few years, always, I’ve wanted to write a song about the rain. (we do have Rain… But I want to do my own version) A lot of my favourite songs are songs about the rain. Epik High hyung’s ‘Umbrella’, Let It Rain, Younha noona’s 'Sound Of The Rain’, X-Japan’s 'Endless Rain’ FreeTempo’s 'Rain’, Razah’s 'Rain’, Kim Hyunsik teacher’s 'Like Music Like The Rain’ etc. It’s seriously a lot, right? The rain has gladly became a muse for so many people. The world has become better to live in because of the rain

We learn from a science book when you are child - The amount of water is constant, that it can become the see, become the river, become the rain, that makes the earth spin - this is really really interesting. The raindrops hitting against my window now could be from the Himalayas. Endless mixing, dividing.. I wish I could live as raindrops too, I wonder if raindrops knew the feelings of loneliness, I would feel a little pitiful. Coming and going.

Anyways, much like the rain, things passed by like a panorama this month. I can’t believe we’ve already done the last broadcast. I know it’s cliche but, it was more like it this time really. For four weeks, the rain has come come down like never before for me and you.

The world is that rain “is Korea’s best rainfall in year”, “first such and such of rain”. 'x00mm’ with similar things said people are going to record such things and of course it’s something to be happy about but, our rain cannot be left to just number. as if that’s all we know. Before this rainfall there’s been countless others, in my eyes, in you’re eyes, and even my body every time I’m on stage. Every minute there are floods and waves driven. At this moment, I’m not far away, I like that you guys and I are here, mixing and falling like raindrops. So I just wanted to say that I don’t want us to be left as just numbers.
Singers follow the song title, really as this title says this rain contains mine and your blood, sweat and tears.

Listen to the rain now!
Have a good night.

As much as I would love for the first lapidot fusion to be a heartwarming scene, I also imagine the fusion looking all majestic in her first 0.2 seconds of existence until she scares the living shit out of everyone by suddenly screaming excitingly/nervously at the top of her lungs for a straight minute.

Simple precautions for an unpredictable event

“On Friday, hundreds of thousands of people will arrive in downtown Washington for the inauguration of Donald Trump. Many will be there to celebrate the incoming president, but a significant number will also be there to signal opposition, as part of the Women’s March and other demonstrations. Given the incoming President’s reliance on private security forces distinct from the Secret Service, it’s unclear how authorities will respond to the protests. If you’re planning on attending the protests or others of this kind, here are some steps you can take to protect yourself and ensure anything you record during the event is as secure as possible.”

listen if tango is argentinian and whiskey is brazilian and chilean.... listen
  • “when you make empanadas they’re bad” “what?” “i don’t know. they’re just bad.”
  • whiskey realizes that tango’s argentinian, like, day two of orientation. the rest of the team finds out that tango is argentinian because bitty says something about a recipe on pinterest for “south american cookies with caramel in them” and tango fucking falls down the stairs trying to get to the kitchen fast enough
    • “i didn’t……….. think i was talking that loudly”
  • cannot go more than four minutes without making fun of each other’s dialects
    • whiskey’s tango impression doesn’t even involve english, it’s just him yelling “qué HACÉS” and then cackling
  • they can pick out each other’s cursing from opposite ends of the rink
    • whiskey can also pick out tango across the rink because he fucking chants “andrés andrés ANDRÉS” whenever he wants something and no one else pronounces it like that
  • the team thinks they’re stoned all the time because tango brings mate on the bus at 7am and everyone else is like “tango…… isn’t it…….. early….”
    • so many fights about whether you can or cannot put honey in mate
    • listen…. can you imagine the first time they let Eric “Tea Is Just A Way To Wash Sugar Into Your Mouth” Bittle try mate
    • they become known around campus as The Thermos Twins
    • related: tango isn’t that hyper, he is just coming down from the affects of an extremely caffeinated childhood
  • weird but abiding love of latinx tv shows in like, absolutely any form. whenever one of them is sick they’ll hide in their room and watch Ugly Betty for hours
    • “we only fight when our teams play against each other”
      • their teams play against each other in the world cup, the copa america, the copa libertadores, champions league, la liga, the madrid derby, the manchester derby, international friendlies, club friendlies, the olympics (??), THEY FIGHT EVERY WEEK
    • they play FIFA as their teams to recreate certain matches and then if Tango loses he takes it as an insult against the entire country of argentina
      • when they play fifa they pretend that germany as a country does not exist, in the name of peace and continued prosperity
        • ransom tries to play as Bayern one (1) time and they don’t speak to him for a week
    • they are marginally respectful of each other’s national teams
      • marginally.
      • tango refers to a bad loss in the Frozen Four as “getting brazil’d” so whiskey buys a life-size cutout of Claudio Bravo to put in their room
        • “i can’t sleep with that man here. why is he looking at me like that?”
      • whiskey’s favorite petty joke is to complain that tango’s national team never sings along to their own anthem because they’re unpatriotic
        • “CHUPAMELA it’s not MESSI’S fault that it has A SEVEN HOUR LONG MUSICAL INTRO”
        • “kun wouldn’t remember the words anyways [the sound of whiskey being bludgeoned with a pillow]”
  • nursey splashes out for steak for the Haus’ back-to-school barbecue one year and they lose their goddamn fucking minds
  • dex yells at them about proper diet once so they move their standing papas fritas al caballo date to 4 AM on sundays
    • someone finds them and they look so pleased but like………. what the fuck
    • “is that poutine” “no it’s…… fries… a la…. horse?” “W     H     A     T”
  • The Stockpiling of the Goya Products
    • do they know when they’re gonna use eight pounds of dulce de guayaba? no. do they need it? yeah.
  • they have their own little music routine before games but they don’t tell anyone else what they’re playing
    • it’s their seventeen favorite shakira songs followed by Gasolina by Daddy Yankee
    • ransom steals their ipod and reads their playlist but he doesn’t say anything because he thinks it’s Ironic
      • it is not ironic
  • constantly cracking jokes about how the other one has never seen ice before (”they don’t have ice cubes in Miami” “listen, BRAZIL”) but if anyone else tries to get in on their joke they’ll never ever forgive them. it’s theirs.

Hi I love your art, and I especially loved the tutorial for Benedict. I was wondering if you could do a few pointers for Martin Freeman as well? I'm having a bit of trouble with him. Thanks :)

Sure no problem! I’ll just use a pic of John haha. So once again using this we’ll get something like this

His eyes are also weird trapezoids like Benedict’s but they slant in the opposite direction. A lot of times he furrows his brow so you can add that in for a mildly concerned look lmao

His nose is pretty standardly shape with a bulbous tip (i hate that word :((( ) like seriously if you google “nose clipart” or something it’ll look pretty close lol. it’s just a tad large for his face

And his lips are really thin! You can probably get away with just drawing a straight line and dimpling the edges.

and there you go! I’d add in some laugh lines as well.
