WE WERE…BORN TO MAKE MALE FASHION HISTORY

I’m not too late to the crop top Yuuri love am I??? And crop top Victor is invited too, right?? My homage to @zephyrine-gale‘s beautiful body-positive, gender-role-crushing flaunty shirt revolution starring confident happy Yuuri (the best Yuuri) and @inarisushi‘s iconic IRL homemade crop top

this was @bringmethatvegenaise ’s suggestion AGAIN

  • Arya: Are you even loyal to Jon? Because for some reason this letter you wrote under the coercion of the Lannisters as a naive child is making me think you're a traitor for some reason?
  • Sansa: I literally guaranteed that we won back the North by recruiting the Vale army. I weeped over the death of our family members because I loved them just as much as you did. I'm not letting people question Jon's position as king. I am making sure the North is running efficiently in Winterfell and that we're all prepared for the war to come. That's what Jon's priority was, so I will make it mine as well.
  • Sansa: Also, I am concerned about you and what you've been doing. I was expecting to find the letter you planned to blackmail me with in your backpack and maybe a juice box and some spare change but there are literal fucking faces in there, Arya.
  • Arya: That's...actually a really good point. I have no idea why I'm pointing a knife at you right now and threatening to take your life based on my anger over Ned's death, which I blamed on Joffrey, Cersei, and Ilyn Payne in literally every other season. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.
  • Sansa: This sucks. The only thing that can make this worse is if Jon did something stupid, like give up the North without at least consulting the Northern lords or me first. Good thing he said he would always defend the North!
  • Arya: I;m trying;;; so hard to agree with you r-right now But I c-cant....all I keep wanting so s-say is MURDER I LOVE MURDER YOU'RE NEXT SANSA

...or, you know, some of us think Cap is and was right about the whole thing because we're also opposed to the real-world implementation of similar fascist legislation such as The Patriot Act and it has nothing to do with liking him more?

That quote basically says, yes oversight is the right ethical and logical choice, but Cap is a good person, and that puts us in a quandary and I am saying that that is bad math.

It’s also a similar bad math that comes up in A LOT of 616 CW discussions, where Captain America himself (and the anti-reg side) essentially takes the position to non-metas that they should accept that metas occupy a position above the law/beyond equal prosecution by the law, because, you know, they’re different, and their circumstances are different, but you trust CAPTAIN AMERICA, riiiiight? Let the metas judge their own and police their own, what do you need the Constitutional right of equality under the law for? Obviously, this base position is immediately complicated by the clusterfuck of everything else in CW, but I’d argue that that’s deliberate. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of the event, because I really like Cap, and I hate the things it makes him argue and I find them antithetical to him as a character.

I also don’t exactly get why so many people find a difference of opinion on a comics event, or, apparently, an actor’s opinion on an upcoming film none of us have seen as a personal challenge? I mean?? Yes I hate fascism? And the Patriot Act? And I think Cap’s political position is largely wrong in CW though I understand why, as the plot is manipulated, he fights? These things are not incompatible?

I get what you’re saying, but I’m responding to the quote as written and many, *many* other posts and comics CW itself, which initially sets up the problem as a constitutional legal problem of supers as American citizens whose identities allow them to avoid legal repercussions and prosecution and that’s constitutionally unacceptable under the law. Once that actually gets stated, there’s a problem.  

I’m not talking about the Patriot Act here, which I abhor, because it wasn’t part of the quote or what I was responding to, and I think the CW treatment of post-9/11 politics was really terrible, tone-deaf, and inconsistent in its understanding of xenophobia** and power dynamics.

i worry so much about whether i’m making the right life decisions, long term. is the way that i’m managing my chronic illness the best way? am i not pushing myself enough? could i have done more? is my treatment optimal?

I guess the answer is: does it really matter that i pick the most optimal path if i find a good life and i’m happy along the way? does it even make sense to compare outcomes this way? It’s not like there is a numerical way to measure how good a life is. 

And, crucially, it’s not as set in stone as I worry. if my decisions start looking bad, i can make changes at any point. if i start feeling suffocated i can do more. if i find better treatments, i can switch. hell, i can go back to school at any time if i feel i’m able to whether that’s at 25 or 35. i’ve been in terrible places & clawed myself back before, built everything from scratch. even if things go horribly wrong, i know i can recover. and if not & i am mostly happy along the way will i really care looking back if i missed a few opportunities? I don’t think so.

it’s not possible to live perfectly. but it is possible to find a life i can be happy with, and to adapt as things change. and that is what i will strive for

I’ve been sitting here thinking for a bit and I just want to do a very small rant about something that bothers me. I’ve noticed that in a good amount of fics, the reader is usually described in a way that basically let’s us know they are short/of height ~5'2" (around 157cm.) I am not that height, I’m closer to 6'2" than I am to 5'2". I understand that the normal height for females are closer to the lower to mid 5'0" area, but there are quite a few of us that are taller.

This could be just me being petty, but I’d kinda like to see us taller ones represented more you know? Without it being requested specifically for a taller reader.

Idk, this is kinda pointless but I needed to talk about it somewhere. I can’t be the only one that feels this way, right?

Am I the only feminist who is frustrated with this whole extreme sex and sex work positivity? Like hoe tips- choosing the right lip color to not leave marks on someone's dick isn't girl power and sleeping with gross old men(I'm not knocking sex workers themselves) isn't empowerment. Most of these hoe tips are about how to taste good or give good head and most "sugar babies" promote it as if it's glamorous and like sex workers don't have a very high mortality and sexual abuse rate.

Okay, but I saw Wonder Woman yesterday for the first time and I keep thinking about the development of Diana’s team of ragtag WWI misfits. I wish the Howling Commandos had gotten the same depth and attention in The First Avenger. The Howlies had a montage and a few very forgettable side scenes that were eclipsed by the larger story. Diana’s team all had very distinct, memorable personalities and they were all given at least one meaningful conversation with Diana to make their connection to her that much more personal and grounded and real. 

Seeing her with her team showed me we could have had so much more with Steve (Rogers) and his own band of misfits. 

Just imagine how much more personal it would have made Captain America’s bond with his team if we’d had: a campfire conversation where Gabe talked about how hard it was to give up his education to fight in the war (especially since he’d fought tooth and nail just to be able to take classes). Or Steve learning French (and explosives) from Dernier (sometimes at the same time, and sometimes with near-disastrous consequences (Hydra found them more than once due to accidental explosions)). What if Falsworth and Steve bantered back and forth about their taste in art (Van Gogh is the only one they both agree is any good)? Or what if Dum-Dum cooked them all something awful and Steve tried to choke it down for the sake of morale (only to find out Dum-Dum knew it was bad and just wanted to see how far Steve would go)? What if Steve found out Morita had family back at home who were in internment camps (also known as the night Steve almost called off the assault on Hydra to go back home and tear down the US internment camps with his bare hands (that’s also when he starts to realize the government of the good ol’ US of A can’t always be trusted)? Imagine if we saw the team relieved to find out Bucky was still alive after Zola took him away in Azzano—and imagine if we saw them grieving with Steve after Bucky’s fall from the train. 

Wonder Woman showed us you don’t need much—just a brief exchange here and there. A spark, a glimpse, a suggestion. If Captain America had that depth of connection to his first team, imagine how much more powerful it would be seeing him having to adapt to a new team in the future. Maybe it would be difficult for him, or maybe it would explain why Steve is actually so good at falling into a leadership position with the Avengers. We’d have seen how capable he is at uniting his first team.

I don’t know. In either case, I can’t stop thinking about what we missed.

Many blogs I follow for positivity suddenly went to negativity tonight & I don't know why? The episode wasn't even that bad. This storyline is bollocks but that doesn't mean we have to completely give up. I love this fandom because we all struggle through together but right now it feels like there's so much negativity & I feel like I should be negative too but I'm actually okay. You blog is at least still finding humour and positives 😃 do you know any other blogs that are still positive too?

Yeah everyone is jumping ship tonight! It’s like the last scene in titanic!

RIGHT EVERYONE! WHOEVER IS STILL POSITIVE WITH ROBERT AND ROBRON REBLOG THIS BAD BOY SO MY LOVELY ANON CAN SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH POSITIVITY!

Hopefully that’ll help find you some people cos I am awful at finding people.

I’m different. I’d rather follow my passion than follow the crowd. I’d rather be respected than be popular. I’d rather do what’s right than do what’s convenient. I don’t have time for negativity. I’m positive. I embrace my uniqueness. I make the people around me better while they do the same. I don’t always need to be right but I always need to be real.

OKAY! Listen right here!! Rian!! Dawson!! Is!! An!! Angel!! I’ve met ATL three times in the past three weeks and Rian has always been the kindest and sweetest one to me (they’re all super nice, but Rian was extra kind) firstly, at the London signing, he was so appreciative for his friendship bracelet I made him and said that we were now ‘friends for life’ (which is fucking true). Secondly, at the Liverpool M&G, he was the first person I went up to and I was so nervous but he made me feel so calm, like he didn’t speak down to me or anything like that - he literally treated me like his friend. We had an actual conversation - What an angel?? Thirdly, at the Manchester signing yesterday, I got him a pug pillow for his new puppy, Cuppy, and he deadass was smiling ear to ear and thanked me three times. He was so fucking grateful for something so small and it made me feel so happy. I’m actually crying writing this right now because I’ve never met a band member so down to earth and so indescribably kind. I think I can positively say that from this day on I am in Rian’s lane

So a few days ago Jin tweeted something about changing his office? ( Not very clear yet?) If that’s the case, I’m extremely glad…well many people in the Japanese fandom are glad. Because basically, Jin seemed really disappointed on twitter with the plot making. He said something about one of the staffs forced him to give more spotlight to the popular characters when Jin wasn’t actually planning for it, or telling him to make the story more less dark or complicated just only for younger fans (Like????? Jin didn’t start the series that way??? Hello the very first song is about a boy being in huge depression???) Well, basically I believe that he was in a situation where he wasn’t 100% able to right a story in a way that he wants. So it would be great if he no longer needs to deal with those people.

anonymous asked:

chicagodykemarchcollective org/2017/06/27/chicago-dyke-march-official-statement-on-2017-march-and-solidarity-with-palestine/ The Chicago dyke march people released a statement about what happened. It includes the line, "Zionism is an inherently white-supremacist ideology." I... I... I am speechless. I don't know how they managed to fuck it up that badly, but they did. I'm almost impressed. (they do know that white supremacists don't like Jews, right?) -pocket-knife (I have returned!)

What’s great about this – archived here – is not only that they doubled-down to excuse their antisemitism, but that they managed to completely destroy their position by failing to smear one of the Jewish women that was thrown out.

“It was later revealed that Laurel was aware of Dyke March’s anti-Zionist position from pro-Palestine memes and art that were posted on the Dyke March page, and was also aware of the fact that her flag could be interpreted as being at odds with that position.”

Oh? Is that true, Dyke March organisers? Well, that could change with the next messages that the March then poste–

Oh. So basically, they’ve managed to unironically put up messages that basically say that a Jewish woman was worried about using the flag that she’s been using for years because of some Facebook posts on the Dyke March’s page, one of the organisers admits to seeing it before and that the flag was fine, as well as saying that they were against antisemitism, and the Jewish woman was grateful for the quick chat…

And that translates as, again:

“It was later revealed that Laurel was aware of Dyke March’s anti-Zionist position from pro-Palestine memes and art that were posted on the Dyke March page, and was also aware of the fact that her flag could be interpreted as being at odds with that position.”

Wow. A Jewish woman saying that she’s worried about harassment over her nothing-to-do-with-Israel Jewish Pride flag is her “being aware” that antisemites would conflate Jewishness with Israel. Because a symbol of Jewishness “could be interpreted” as something that other Dyke Marchers might harass. 

Nice retroactive victim-blaming and obvious gaslighting there, Dyke March.

And that goes straight into the Dyke March saying:

“Upon arrival at the rally location in Piotrowski Park, Palestinian marchers approached those carrying the flags to learn more about their intentions, due to its similarity to the Israeli flag and the flag’s long history of use in Pinkwashing efforts. During the conversation, the individuals asserted their Zionist stance and support for Israel. At this point, Jewish allies and Dyke March organizers stepped in to help explain why Zionism was unacceptable at the march.”

So, again, a Jewish woman asked the organisers if she would be safe from harassment if she brought her Jewish Pride flag, since it was nothing to do with Israel. An organiser said it was fine because they’d seen it on previous marches. And then Dyke March organisers admit that the Jews were just marching until Palestinian marchers deliberately went over there to harass them for seeing nothing but a Star of David on the Jewish Pride flags.

“Anti-Zionism has nothing to do with antisemitism! But we’re going to presume that a universal symbol of Jewishness = Israel and deliberately go over to start antagonising Jews!”

The antagonists started a conversation about Israel. The Jews then tried to defend themselves, even though the earlier messages prove that they weren’t even there about Israel, but for themselves, and the organisers accepted that.

And then, to top it all off, the organisers then admit not to break up that antisemitic harassment, or say, “Hey, this is just a Jewish Pride flag, we’re not here to talk about Israel, they’re not even here to defend Israel, so separate.” No, they decided to continue the harassment of the Jews there and then eject them from the march entirely.

I’m not even going to go into their ramblings about attacking Israel, because Israel here isn’t the point. Actual Jews and actual antisemitism is the point. Israel here does not matter even one bit.

If the Dyke March organisers had tried to claim something like the Jews went over and started something with Palestinians, then I could say, “Well, they were being troublemakers when they knew it wasn’t going to go down, so that wasn’t antisemitism, that was their own fault.” 

But the Dyke March’s statement proves absolutely otherwise.

They reassured a Jewish woman, who made it clear she was only there for herself, that her Jewish Pride flag was good and she wouldn’t be harassed.

They then let her be harassed for her Jewish Pride flag by antisemites.

They then supported those antisemites to be antisemitic themselves.

They then get backlash online for their antisemitism.

And then they make a statement admitting that a universal symbol of Jewishness makes Jews an acceptable target for antisemitic harassment.

But they’re totally not antisemites, guys.

The ONE positive thing about my husband not having a job right now is that I am planning the menu for Mabon dinner and he is going to prepare it with me during the day on thursday which should be fun! 🍂🍂🍂 And even though he is a bit disinterested in all the witchcraft stuff I’m learning, the man is a chef, so he always looks forward to cooking special meals. He and I are going to bake and prep all day, while burning yummy fall candles and letting cool breezes through open windows and sipping our pumpkin spice lattes 🍂☕️🍂
