but i love it you can't choose who you love

i always see wholesome posts about loving your mom and giving her the world. those posts are fine and all, i’m glad you guys love your moms and have happy healthy relationships. but for some of us it just isn’t realistic, so this one goes out to everyone who’s stomach twists when they see those posts because their mom isn’t a good person and because they don’t have a good relationship with her. you don’t have to love your mom, you don’t have to love any of your family members. you choose to love who treats you right, don’t let posts like that make you feel bad for not liking your mom.

I understand what the last comic is going for but I find it very sad that people will always choose who they rub their genitals on over family. You can find lots of different people to love, you can't replace a parent.

I get what you’re saying and ideally, there doesn’t have to be a choice and differences can be resolved (like in this strip), but it’s not always as simple as that. One of the hardest lessons to learn sometimes is just how flawed your parents can be. Usually it’s all just fine and like any good relationship, you love them despite all the times they screwed up and continue to screw up. You have healthy boundaries and respect each other and work through the troubles. But sometimes, there’s a hard realization that a parent is an outright toxic person who actively tries to ruin your happiness. Sometimes, for your own sake, you have to dramatically distance yourself, even to the point of dropping all contact.

In fact, someone submitted their story of just this happening right after you. I’ll paste it here so the name isn’t attached.

… this latest comic really hits home. My own mother acted much the same way, and it even got physical at one point (such that I had to intervene to stop her physically harming my wife, which resulted in my punching my own mother in the face… yeah…).

She tried to make me choose… and I had to make it clear to her that there WAS no choice - I would side with my wife and walk out of my mothers life if she made it come to that.

As bad as that all sounds… thank you. Thank you for illustrating this. It is something people need to know happens.


Last chapter of Tokyo Ghoul was 143 titled “Kaneki Ken” The chapter number could also be interpreted as “I Love You: Kaneki Ken” The person most likely telling Kaneki how much they love him would’ve been Touka.

Ishida could’ve chosen ANY number and person to end TG with, but he choose 143 and Touka (the only one who had faith in his return). Certainly, one chapter, has two meanings.

So if TGre ends at chapter 143, the tittle of that chapter could be titled “Kirishima/Kaneki Touka” Kaneki has told and showed us he loves his wife Touka tremendously. But her being kidnapped by the CCG, something paralleling Kaneki’s ending in part one, is possible in her case. Even so, Kaneki would have faith in her retrieval if she were taken away from him. They may be split, but they’re bound to get back together because what comes as a pair, stays a pair.

Some more Philinda thoughts

Because my brain won’t stop:

I think Melinda fell in love with Phil after Bahrain. The foundation for it was already set - the chemistry between them was apparent and even acknowledged by them on some level (aka the conversation about getting a drink all those years ago), so the attraction and draw was already there. But I think that on Phil’s part the attraction morphed into something deeper quicker than it did for May. 

Bahrain cemented that burgeoning attraction into something stronger and much more permanent. May didn’t know that, though, until much later. 

The moment that May breaks down, she’s in Coulson’s arms. After listening to the comment he makes in season one when they’re arguing about her betrayal (”how could you do that to me? after all the time I spent sifting through the ashes with you in Bahrain?” or something to that effect) leads me to believe that Phil was the only real support that May would accept. In the flashbacks we can see that she can’t - or won’t - lean on Andrew, but that’s not the case with Phil. So here Melinda is completely destroyed after Bahrain and she’s put up all these walls, but for whatever reason Phil is allowed inside them. The fact that he stays inside that circle (as much as she can bear to have anyone that close at that point) speaks volumes, IMO. 

So by the time May starts to regain a sense of herself and some kind of balance, Coulson is firmly ensconced in her heart. And trauma is sharply divisive: it’ll either tear you apart, or tie you tightly together. Andrew and Melinda were torn apart, but Phil and Melinda … well, that decided it, I think. It’s part of the reason they are so fiercely loyal to and protective of one another, especially May.

I don't know if this is something you'd post but I don't see a lot of positivity around ace/aros who still want kids and a family but don't want to date or be in a relationship like that. It would be cool to see some love for aros who want to be parents but not partners (it feels like its only acceptable to choose to be a single parent if you're a woman pushing 40 who's tried her best to settle down and just been unlucky in love. and it sometimes feels like to be a good aro you can't want kids)

You can absolutely want kids if you’re aro! Being aro does not mean that you can’t have a family. If you don’t feel romantic love, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel familial love. While I don’t personally want kids, I think people who do are great. Especially people that will raise the future generation to be accepting and supportive of people who are lgbtqa+. I wish you luck in the future and hope you have a wonderful life.

Perks of Being a Wallflower for the Signs

  • Taurus: "I know I'm quiet... and, and I know I should speak more. But if you knew the things that were in my head most of the time, you'd know what it really meant. How, how much we're alike, and how we've been through the same things... and you're not small. You're beautiful."
  • Gemini: "This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite."
  • Cancer: “She wasn't bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time. ”

Hey! I love your page. I am 21 and dating someone who is 49. I never thought I would date someone older than my dad lol but what we have is seriously amazing. We've been together almost two years. At first I didn't have any support besides my mom and looking back I would have loved to have seen this page! My advice for anyone struggling with an age difference- if you're happy don't worry about anything else. You can't always choose who you fall in love with and that's the beauty of it I think :)

It’ll take time. Remember that you shouldn’t confine yourself to the idea of being with a person who doesn’t want to be with you. Free yourself and remember that you have so so so many other beautiful souls to meet and one that will choose you over and over again. Don’t settle for one that doesn’t choose you.

Do I have to label my sexuality? Can't I just say that I'm open to love? Because you know you can't choose who you will love.

You don’t have to label anything that you don’t want to. If you are happy not having a label then that’s okay!

Marianne and Dawn are sisters where there’s no competition on who’s the “better sister,” in-universe or no. One’s a rough-around-the-edges outcast, the other a boy-crazy debutante. Both of them confuse and frustrate their father to no end, but he still loves them dearly. Marianne looks after her sister in the place of their (most likely) absent mother, and Dawn looks up to Mari as both an overbearing chaperone and her hero. They tease each other and aren’t always at the same wavelength, but they always try to help in ways they best know how: Marianne through her sword and fists, and Dawn through sincere comfort and optimism. 

In the film, they respectively find someone who truly loves them for who they are. Even though both cases are nothing that either princess could have imagined, their love is wholly and freely reciprocated. And as the viewer, you can choose which of the fairies you most relate to/admire more, but the film doesn’t set up any direct competition. The sisters’ relationship isn’t always a smooth one, but neither is it rooted in jealousy or contempt. Through all their differences, they love each other, and the audience is encouraged to love them for that. 

anonymous asked:

Hey Liza, I saw that response that you reblogged and I've always wondered, did you consider it an actual love triangle between Killian/Emma/Neal? I know the writers referred to it as such but it never came across as that to me. I always see love triangles as the person who has two love interests has feelings for both and can't choose. To me at least, Emma never acted like she was considering taking Neal back. I was just curious if you agree and if you considered it a "love triangle".

I agree with you. To me, the “love triangle” largely was a device the show was using to try and create suspense by introducing obstacles and tension, but the narrative didn’t make it a messy love triangle as we’re used to in other shows and fiction. Especially in hind sight.  The viewer had a bit of suspense about where the story was going to go first, but I don’t think the character of Emma was actually ever tempted to get back with Neal. The show tried to make you think she might be, but she never was. 

I remember watching the Neverland arc and having a bit of concern about how long the writers were going to subject us to the “love triangle” and at the time I did wonder if they would make her go back to Neal before she finally ended up with Hook.  Thank the whatever high atop the thing (TWW reference) that they skipped that bit of torture. 

However, by midway through 3a, there wasn’t that much suspense for viewers who watched closely. In 3x06 she told Neal she wished he was dead (a pretty big indicator of where her heart and mind were at) and then at the end of that episode they talk again, and we see that conversation from Hook’s POV and never from Neal’s. That was a big neon sign, and it happens repeatedly. Then in 3x07 they gave us the climax of the “love triangle” by actually visually showing the audience the three of them in a triangle! Ha! When they were in the Dark Hallow, and the shadows start attacking both Hook and Neal, Neal was behind her, (her past) Hook was in front of her, (her future) from overhead they formed a visual triangle, and when they were both taken, she only called out one of their names.


Triangle over. Prior to that, she might have been feeling confused about her feelings for Hook, and wondering is she should succumb to the pressure she was getting from MM and Henry etc to get back with Neal, but in that moment of crisis we saw where her heart was and there was no doubt. Turns out it wasn’t a love triangle. Just Emma coming to terms with her attraction to and inevitable feelings for Hook, while her deadbeat ex danced around guilting her and making her miserable.
