but can we talk about this still

queen-mercury-may  asked:

Ya know that radio interview where Paul admitted his relationship with John? Why does nobody talk about that? Mclennon was real and both were probably bi, but nobody talks about it. Two of the best musicians ever are LGBTQ+, but people just ignore it! He said "We were amongst the first men to come out" and "Homosexuality was still largely illegal at the time", but people are still like "They were just best friends!" even with this proof. Anyways, I love your blog!! Hope you have a nice day.

because fucking straight culture has to defend the beatles legacy’ that’s why. 

Paul said “i have some juicy stuff about john I can’t tell you, not when cynthia and yoko are still alive”.

it will happen. just wait. he’ll say it one day. and it’ll be the best day in the whole fucking world.

We can’t ever forget about Sylvia and Marsha.

When we talk about The Stonewall Uprising (aka The Stonewall Riots) many of us clamor to stake our claim on who started it all. Why bother? Prejudice started that uprising. In response, our community rose up and fought back against what was, until that night, an unstoppable force. People were beaten, glass broken, doors shattered, and to this day we are still fighting.

Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P Johnson  were described as “saints” by the people who knew them. Both struggled with homelessness, abuse, mental breakdowns, powerlessness, and exclusion.

To this day many disregard their role in history. Regardless, both worked tirelessly to improve the lives around them - whether it was housing homeless Trans youth, or simply cheering up friends in need.

We all struggle with things, especially now that events have taken, what looks like, turns for the worse.

But we don’t give up. We don’t retreat. We push forward.

There’s so much going on this month, this Pride. A lot to cry over, be thankful for, and celebrate. But this one is for you, ladies. <3

My boyfriend is going away at the end of summer for schooling 6 hours away so he won't be able to visit very much I have some gifts I'm planing and making for him but I don't know how to handle the thought of him leaving for so long as I have abandonment issues even though I'll move in with him as soon as July next year I'm still nervous about this (public answer is okay)

Hey!
Long distance relationships can be hard, I’m not going to lie to you.
I’m in a long distance relationship and I have BPD so it’s super tricky, though we don’t have any set date for meeting yet.. which sucks.

Try to Skype often. Seriously, it helps. Even if you don’t know what to talk about, or you’ve got work to do and you’re too busy to properly chat, just hanging out and being able to see and hear each other is nice.

Update each other when you can about how things are going in your day to day life. You might think something like “I’m drinking a really nice hot chocolate” is kind of unimportant and not worth telling, but honestly, that kind of thing (maybe with a picture too??) really helps you feel like you’re still “with them” in a sense, living their live along with them every day even though there’s a distance between you.

Mail!! Mail is nice every so often. Little gifts, letters, maybe plushies that smell like them really boosts the mood. I have a lot of emotional impermanence so physical items can really, really help.

Get involved with other things. Maybe if you find a fun hobby to take up your time you can show them how good you’ve gotten with it when you get together again! I’m sure they’ll be really proud of you ♡

I found this post for people with DPD/BPD on my personal blog from my own references. It helped me when my boyfriend went on holiday so our communication was severely reduced.

Remember that it’s okay to feel awful. It’s okay to cry, to get frustrated, to feel hopeless.
The important part is getting back up, brushing yourself off, and accepting things you can’t change. Check out radical acceptance techniques if it helps. (x) (x)

Good luck!! ♡

Things YOU can do when writing Voltron FanFic:

* Make Keith blunt and short without making him rude or outright mean, making him confident without being arrogant

* Having Hunk enjoy cooking/baking while also focusing highly on his engineering skills because I don’t know if you noticed but Hunk is an AMAZING engineer who can hotwire alien tech like wish

* Letting Lance be insecure without blaming it on everyone around him (and alternately having him read situations wrong but STILL not blaming everyone else for what he himself perceives) and remembering that he’s still an optimistic sweet big hearted boy

* Letting Allura mourn the loss of her father (and her ppl if we’re talking about in canon verse)

* Allowing Shiro to be more than the “responsible adult Dad man” figure. Seriously he has no idea what he’s doing most of the time and he’s allowed to have moments where he ISN’T the responsible one. Let him have a personality

My mum has gone home and we had a wonderful time. I told her everything that’s been on my mind and then we we went to a lovely italian restaurant and ate pizzas. For the past few days ive been writing her a letter explaining everything about me which i told her about and sent to her so she can read it. And Although it got really teary she’s still happy to call me her child. I don’t think she’ll be calling me her daughter anytime soon but it’s baby steps. One small accomplishment at a time :)

im super disappointed that SH is afraid of giving malec more intimate scenes. Theyve been together for over an entire season now and maia and jace swoop in and dry hump in an alley 2 seconds after deciding theyre into eachother. im pretty sure its not the actors who are uncomfortable, so i can only assume its the writing. either way. super bummed.

I get what you’re coming from, but the Jace and Maia thing was a different moment. They’ve had this chemistry since episode 3 and they need some sexual relief, so that was a perfect moment. People don’t have to be in relationship or know each other for a long time to have sex. But still, I know what you mean.

I’ve talked about this before many times and I do think it’s unfair. We don’t need those scenes, you know? I mean, if the show was the kind to not have scenes like that I wouldn’t care, but the show clearly doesn’t have problem with it (Jaia scene is the perfect example), so why not show Malec? Why are they so afraid of showing? The writers and Todd and Darren are very aware of how we feel about this (Todd recently commented about it on his twitter) and I think they will find a perfect moment to do that. To be fair, the last few episode weren’t the moment to do something like that. Though next episode Magnus will expose his feelings to Alec and I think this is something that is going to bring them closer together giving them plenty of moments to add more of their intimacy. I remember Todd said something about 2x18 being a good Malec episode so I’m watching out for that one. 

We need a little patience and a little faith. I think we will get those scenes. Maybe not this season, but I’m hopeful for season 3. It’s so important to have that. To end this stigma that “gay sex” is promiscuous.

So my x gf cheated co stantly we ere together a year n a half. I need. He we did some stuff while rooming together on a b ball trip and she said ily and asked me to be hers I said no bc she has a gf and we got physical. But I need her. I need her to stop and realize I'm here and were made for eachother. We had everything when we were together we were #goals no joke. And I love her and Ik she still feels for me. But I cant be played again. How can I make her mine n mine only without being played?

Ask yourself do you really want this… you cant trust her and will always ask yourself if she will do it again.. it can be very stressfull for you and for her.. just have a very good talk with her be honest and tell everything what is up in your head. Dont worry about feeling just be honest and let her talk to.. maybe it can work out maybe not i cant tell but if you want to try then I will not stop you

somebody’s probably talked about this screencap already but i’m????? jesus christ???????????

this is the exact expression i wear when i’m reading through someone’s bullshit. here victor’s coming from the mindset yuri remembers the banquet perfectly, so i can almost hear him thinking “alright, your parents and sister are gone. you can come out now.”

it’s worth mentioning this was also the first time he and yuri were alone together after the hot springs scene, where victor put up some sort of peacock act. emphasis on the cock. 

and it wasn’t the only act he put up that night. 

when nothing happens when they’re alone, victor decides to probe the “real” yuri out by lowering his voice and being flirty and touching him, which just pushes him farther away.

next time we see him, he’s knocking on yuri’s door, talking about having a “slumber party” in a silly manner. that doesn’t work either, so he goes back to his room and cries until he falls asleep.

i’m?????????????????????????????????????????????????

can you fucking believe victor put up not one, two, but THREE different fronts on the same night? all of which might be roles he’s used to playing very well, but are still not him? he tried to get through to yuri by being everything, everything but himself, and nothing worked, because it wasn’t supposed to. because yuri wouldn’t want a front, he’d want him.

people are always talking about how victor’s character changed A LOT after the beach scene in ep. 4. some go as far as saying the change was a conscious choice by the writers because his character was so “unlikeable”. no wonder yall think that? prior to ep. 4, we’d never fucking met victor? we literally didn’t know who he was? because he was hiding even from us?

holy christ thank you @yuri for telling my son to just be himself he URGENTLY needed it

NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY

National Aboriginal Day is on June 21st. If it doesn’t coincide with another event (I remember a few years back that it did with BlackOut, but was worked around), I think we should celebrate. If you’re Aboriginal / Indigenous, upload your selfies, post art, talk about Aboriginal characters that you know and love, talk about books and films made by and for Indigenous people. We are still here but we are individually unique and have our own experiences and stories to tell. 

Use #HappyAboriginalDay and spread the word.

EDIT: The date for BlackOut is June 6th. We’re in the clear!

SECOND EDIT: 

This post has gained a lot of attention over the last couple of days! Thank you to everybody who has shared and reblogged it. I want to take a moment to address a question that keeps popping up: if you are indigenous/aboriginal, you can participate if you choose to! This is not limited just to Native American / First Nations people. If you are Ainu, Maori, Saami, native Hawaiian, etc, feel free to participate! It’s great opportunity for us to represent ourselves, our cultures, our lives, our heroes, and celebrate both our differences and similarities. 

I can’t wait to see you all on June 21st! Keep boosting this post and don’t forget to use the #HappyAboriginalDay tag!

The Preath Head Tap™️️ 2013 vs 2016

anonymous asked:

Since bitty is (I think?) the first openly gay player in the NHL in the fics, what about other players hitting on him when they play the schooners, or even better, during the all star game when jack is right there?

The game so far has been nothing memorable, just another pre-season exhibition against Edmonton that neither team really want to give their all because why risk anything before the season even starts?

“Bittle,” Burig, a second line Oilers winger, flags Eric down at the end of the second period, with a look of grim determination that gives Eric the sense he’s about to be sucker-punched.

“Yeah?”

“You, uh,” Burig hesitates, gnawing on his mouthguard and twisting his stick in his hands while he comes up with whatever he wants to say. He huffs and looks around for any teammates that might be watching the exchange, finding the rest of his line distracted, he leans in close. “You doing anything after the game?”

Eric blinks. “What?” 

“Just,” Burig shrugs, face flushing pink, “wanted to see if you’d like to grab a drink or something.”

“Oh. Oh!” Someone from the bench yells his name and Eric is faced with a dilemma he knows he can’t resolve in the next 15 seconds. “Wait for me after the game, we can talk.”

Burig nods tightly, beet red, and skates back to his own bench.

Just another thing for Eric to think about while coach yells at him for missing an unnecessary pep talk.

____

Burig is waiting for Eric when he leaves the locker room, hair still damp and his suit slightly rumpled like he’d thrown it on in a rush, which makes Eric feel worse for some reason.

“Hey,” he perks up when he sees Eric, sliding his phone into his gear bag. “You wanted to talk?” He sounds so earnest it hurts and Eric motions to a meeting room just off the hallway.

“It’ll be a bit more private in here.”

Eric doesn’t waste time when the doors close, Burig isn’t the first player to approach him and he certainly won’t be the last.

“You’re very sweet, but I have a boyfriend.”

“Fuckin’ knew it,” Burig curses, shouldering his duffel bag. “No way someone as hot as you is single. Worth a shot, right?”

“Were you looking for a hook-up or?”

“No, not like that, I just kinda,” he hesitates like he’s afraid of saying too much.

“Safe space,” Eric waves his arms to indicate the empty room. “Be honest.”

“I’m tired of Grindr and puckbunnies and bar hookups, you know? I want something real.”

Eric immediately runs through a list in his mind of the few single players he’s met in similarly awkward situations. “You play in Vancouver next week, right?”

Burig’s eyes go wide and Eric holds up a warning finger. “Hold your horses. I may have a friend in a similar situation, but it’ll be on his terms if he wants to reach out. Give me your number, and I’ll pass it along if he wants to meet. Okay? No promises.”

_______

“You want to tell me why we’re watching Vancouver slaughter Edmonton when we could be doing literally anything else?” Jack bemoans from the couch, poking and prodding at Eric to distract him.

“I’m invested, alright? You plant seeds, you watch ‘em grow.”

The clock runs out on the second period and Eric keeps his eyes trained on Vancouver’s goalie, Crivier, who waves Burig over in a moment of calm. The two talk, barely visible over the shoulder of a commentator, but moments later Burig skates away with a very prominent smile on face. 

“And boom goes the dynamite,” Eric whispers, grabbing the remote to switch over to the new season of House of Cards.

“You playing matchmaker again, Bits?” Jack laughs, pressing himself against Eric’s side and nuzzling at his neck.

“You know how much competition you’d have if I didn’t set up all the guys that hit on me with each other?” Eric breathes, sliding his fingers through Jack’s hair. “I could have a harem.”

Jack groans and squeezes Eric tightly. “I’ll fight everyone,” he murmurs, “even the guys I like.”
