Sheila I am Mexican too and I have thought about skin bleaching a lot. I know I shouldn't but sometimes I think it might be easier to be whiter. What was your experience with it?

Hey friendo. 

Let me tell you right now that I’m not going to yell at you. Or make you feel guilty. If your like me, you already feel really guilty for even THINKING about bleaching. A lot of the small, discreet forums I ran too when I first started bleaching were these tiny corners of the internet where mexican, hispanic, and black girls talked on forum about where to buy bleaches, how they got lighter. And they were always interspliced with us trying to tell each other to be strong, to stop, to not feel bad about what they were doing but also encouraging others not to start. It’s a sucky, sucky place to be, but I understand that you’re there. You know? And sometimes the act of controlling the shade of your skin can feel like overcoming the insecurity (its not.) 

Instead Imma tell you the realities of skin bleaching. 

First off, most of the brightening and bleaching products ARENT frederally regulated. I mean, they are super fucking dangerous. Just fyi. These companies are super shady and the ingrediants to even the FDA approved over-the-counter prescriptions of lighteners, have been linked to causing cancer. Over extended periods of time, it has been known to give a higher risk of, and even cause, cancer. They are still banned in a lot of countries. Yes, these are products that are used to help patients with post-sugery spotting, scarring, that are prescribed whiteners. Or even Vitilago patients, but even they are told the serious dangers and they are just using it for exactly that. SPOTTING. Not slathering it on your whole body.

Aside from being really fucking expensive, the ultimate thing that stopped me and others was this. 

You can’t actually strip your skin of melanin/pigment. 

It’s just not scientifically possible. Bleaching doesn’t actually BLEACH your skin. It just -delays and stops the melanin from forming- thats it. And in some whiteners, like the soap bar whitener, its actually peeling off layers of your skin to the non tanned cells beneath, and delaying melanin. This leads to redness, allergies, skin infections, and itchyness like a mutherfucker. It can be really painful.

But that also means that no matter how much you whiten, because you are only stopping melanin from forming instead of stripping, you will always be as tan as you are to begin with. You can only peel back and stop your layers so much before you reach your base shade. 

So guess what that means?

Your shade will always come back. 

Unless you plan on bleaching forever (see above about cancer) you will never reach a point that you won’t be tan, or won’t be in ‘need’ of bleaching. It will always, always come back. Because as soon as you stop using it, your melanin starts producing again. Unless of course, you damage your skin so badly you start DARKENING.

Yup, skin bleaching can also cause you to darken. 

And I don’t mean, it makes you get tanner. It blackens you. It’s called exogenous ochronosis. It’s when your skin gets damaged by the use of whiteners/bleachers and starts BLACKENING. Mostly in the thinner areas of your skin. Around your eyes is the most common one. Its practically unrepairable. Unless you want to sit under lasers at the dermatogloist weeks on end.

And finally, the shades you whiten never feel like enough. We all experienced this. It’ s a paranoia from your insecurity. As white as you get, you’ll still be staring at the mirror thinking ‘im too dark, im too dark.’ Because in the end it’s in your head, not in your skin. You’ll be endlessly torturing your body to try and fix your mind. I still struggle with this, despite having used it for 4-5 years and now stopped for another 4. And I realized that even though I was actively getting lighter, I was still not happy. Still not satisfied. That’s when I realized that I wasn’t targeting the right problem. What I had been made to think. Not what I had been made AS. 

And now, because I had beat up my skin so badly, I notice how much more easily I scar, I darken, I sun spot. The exact opposite of what I wanted. But i made my skin so tender, its more prone to tanning than not. 

I hope this helps. I know that when I realized all these things it turned me off completely, and many of the other girls that helped me stopped other from using just by explaining what they might be getting into. 

I’m always, always here to talk about this! On anon or privately! 

y'all who watched mindhunter, search on youtube for interviews with the real ed kemper and see how much of an excellent job the actor did portraying him in the show, i already thought he did great but now that i saw the real guy speaking i’m just amazed, the way show-ed talks and even his voice is just the same

anonymous asked:

Everyone keeps saying "you need to find your own style, don't try to copy other artists"... But I'm a beginner, despite being 40 already, and I have no style of my own. It's really discouraging, to the point where I often think I shouldn't even bother learning to draw at all. It's not your problem, of course, but I love your art. Do you have any advice, for an aspiring artist, who hasn't enough personality to have a proper style of her own?

Hi anon–first, please imagine I’ve offered you a hug through the internet. Well-meaning but unintentionally discouraging art advice is a topic that’s close to my heart so I’m gonna throw the rest of this under a cut and ramble, like, a lot.

For that anon- making friends in the community is hard. I myself have over 500 followers in 3 months, but not a single person that talks to me, and my original content almost never gets notes. Unfortunately, the community does often seem like a "cool kids club" and as much as a lot of popular bloggers try to assert that isn't true, they do contribute to it by being cliquey. It's not you and you shouldn't feel bad that people are just human, even on the internet.

People underage can write smut w people underage jesus

P S FUCKING A

SIT BACK AND LISTEN UP

Jesus, yes I agree, you need him. Minors smutting with minors is also illegal. It is mostly relative to ‘sexting’ and the laws vary change country/state/province, but in most places, regardless of your age, you can be charged and convicted if found guilty. (receipt) And if you actually read that you’ll notice all the people charged were 10-17, which guess what, means they’re a MINOR  I’m not saying you’ll go to jail (I mean you might), but some nasty fines and being labeled as a child predator are pretty life ruining.

And even if you’re above the age of consent  where you live that doesn’t mean your partner is yeah? So if the age of consent is 16 where you are, and it’s 18 where your partner is you partner could get into some deep water fam.

And to quote the actual Department of Justice on the section of child pornography, “Additionally, the age of consent for sexual activity in a given state is irrelevant; any depiction of a minor under 18 years of age engaging in sexually explicit conduct is illegal.”  ( receipt )

Also child exploitation laws are thing, if the parents of your partner who happens to be underage sees the history of your roleplays, they can get the law involved, and if the parents have no chill this CAN happen, and it DOES happen. Even through the internet the law still holds up, so if someone sees that and thinks you’re exploiting their child, it will fall under child exploitation laws. (receipt)

If you didn’t know this then that’s probably more proof you should not be roleplaying smut, especially if you’re underage, so go check yourself before you come into my inbox.

anonymous asked:

is there any other way to potray how Ni is other than "mystical magical psychic beings" because I am an INTJ and I do not feel the need to predict the future every time, according to Ni-doms on the internet they always say that they've got visions and stuff. however (even though I know I shouldn't rely on test results alone) I've got a high Ni on tests like keys2cognition and celebrity types. or if that's how Nis are, then maybe I mistyped myself. I am just having a difficult time relating to

what Ni is but the other functions of the INTJ, I guess i am sure of it. (2/2)

—-

So, I’m not an Ni user but: it is true that Ni is about considering how the future will be. So is Si to some extent; both the introverted perceiving functions are about how things are likely to turn out. The difference is that Ni is based on abstract concepts and trends rather than specific events (though more life experience will fuel better Ni predictions).

The problem of the mystical psychic being comes from a couple places.

First: unhealthy/immature Ni users are very out of touch with their Se which is again what fuels having good predictions. So they’ll make these predictions, and sometimes they’ll be right but they don’t know where they come from. Hence ‘visions’ rather than ‘I am very good at predicting abstract trends but I can back this up with evidence if I have to.’

Second, Ni is big picture before details just as Si is details before big picture. This can result in Ni users extrapolating from a single time they got the prediction correct, forgetting the ‘detail’ that they had it wrong ten other times (or even if they have a slight majority at getting things broadly right, they still may consider themselves infallible). Hence the ‘psychic’ rather than ‘I’m sometimes very accurate in my predictions.’

And third: if someone gripes about how no one understands their genius because the predictions “just come to them” and they can’t explain them and people don’t listen to them and why are people so stupid…get out of there. They’re a terrible communicator, have low self-awareness and out of touch with their functions to boot. I’m sure they have the potential to be a healthy, lovely person one day but right now all their function descriptions are going to be tinged with pretentiousness and a false sense of superiority.

I would recommend Michael Pierce’s videos for some fairly balanced and non-mystical Ni discussion from an Ni user. Like any function it has benefits and drawbacks - it’s the least tethered to concrete reality, which can lead to incredible groundbreaking ideas, but is just as likely to lead to complete nonsense.

If you relate to the INTJ functions otherwise: you’re probably an IxTJ. I would give inferior Se and inferior Ne a good research session to be sure, and maybe check back through some of my archives to read about Si (or other sources; Michael Pierce is again a good resource because honestly even most of my favorite other resources are either not great at understanding Si well, or understand Si but not dom Si, hence my self-promotion here) just to cover all bases. But if Ni as I described and as Michael Pierce describe fits, and Si doesn’t, then I think INTJ would be correct.

These people are trying to help you and you shouldn't take constructive critisism as hate. Your art is not bad. Improving is important and you should listen to them. These critisisms weren't even harsh. If you can't take light critisism, then maybe you shouldn't post your art on the internet. Not everyone is here to Kiss your ass, because that wouldn't make you grow as an artist. (I know you won't post this, but this is important, so please don't ignore it)

anonymous asked:

What do you think of anti freebatch people? Cause i see people saying stuff like "respect them!" and " "Its creepy to ship them irl" it gets even sadder when they attack metas about freebatch or analyzing posts. Like if I wanna ship something I should be able to. They shouldn't tell me I'm not allowed to ship something because of what they think. People put effort into metas and stuff then antis go and say it's creepy n stuff.

This isn’t about freebatch or antis or whatever. It’s about bullies. There are people in fandom and in life that think it’s their job to inflict their morality/religion/arbitrary rules on everyone else. There are people like that in pretty much every corner of the internet, certainly​ on both sides of the tjlc debate. I’m not talking about people who have an opinion and share it. I’m talking about people who will attack you for having and sharing your own. Who can’t let you like the things you like because of their own insecurities or control issues. Those people are miserable and pathetic. And you can give in to their bullying and let them police what you do and how you live, or you can make them mad and ignore them and keep doing the things that make you happy. I say fuck ‘em.

anonymous asked:

"#if you don't know how to draw poc#how about practice and just#don't post until you can get it right" I have to politely disagree with this. Young, or even older but new artists are often not used to drawing darker skin tones, different body types, etc. But the only way for them to get positive feedback and critique is by showing it to others, now it's most commonly through the internet. Also different lighting can also make dark skin look lighter. Saying someone shouldn't post means less art.

you’re semi-right in that newer artists and artists practicing should post for feedback but, politely, you’re wrong about everything else. that comment was mostly directed at veteran artists (professionals, popular patreon artists, popular fandom artists, etc). if you don’t know how to draw poc without erasing their skin tone, practice. “lighting” is one of the many popular excuses to whitewash. magazine photographers and editors deliberately do this all the time and the consequence of it perpetuates the ideology that “lighter = prettier, darker = uglier.”

artists often use photo references so when photographers whitewash, artists tend to follow suit because we’re conditioned the same way. to think that lighter is more worthy of visibility and respect—whether it’s subconscious or not—is extremely harmful. as a result, artists (even poc artists) often whitewash poc features: slimming and sloping noses, thinning lips, enlarging eyes, making eye color lighter, adjusting jaw lines and cheekbones, etc.

so i will reiterate: if you don’t know how to draw/edit poc characters/models without retaining their beautiful skin tone, you need to practice more. play with different filters, color corrections, saturation levels, and work with alternate lighting—dim lights, colorful lights, blacklight, etc—practice practice practice. you can keep a person of color’s skin tone and features without whitewashing. it is not an impossible feat; don’t participate in the conversation that poc aren’t worthy of the same respect as white people/characters.

tl;dr: whitewashing is racist/antiblack, harmful, and ugly. there’s no excuse for it. before racists say “taliyah is light-skinned—it’s just lighting!” you’re also wrong. she’s a beautiful brown woman and people need to stop erasing her like that. also note: please do not harass the artists!

What we all should try to learn from the signs
  • Aries: To stand up for ourselves. To address that mean comment on a reblog, to tell the teacher you weren't the one who cheated, to confront the boss when it was ridiculous to expect you to do that extra work. To believe in yourself and your right to be as happy as anyone else.
  • Taurus: To respect others. To not allow anyone to insult those who can't stand up for themselves, to accept and understand the opinions of other people, to rule our behaviours with morality and empathy. To be tenacious and unwavering, to mix stern ethics with a kind and forgiving heart.
  • Gemini: To understand what we most hold back. To know that honesty isn't always the best policy, to think before we speak, to tell little white lies when we need to. To make sure we are not tying ourselves down to the same set of beliefs: truth, faith, truth, faith, truth, faith.
  • Cancer: To retreat sometimes. To allow yourself 'me' time, to write poetry and take long baths, to cry and eat ice-cream. To allow yourself and what you feel to be valid. To take a day off work if you just can't face seeing that one person, to remember to put yourself first sometimes.
  • Leo: To show the world how we feel. To allow ourselves to breathe, to cast aside the iron restrictions of society, to cry and laugh whenever we need to. To express ourselves, to paint and draw and write and sing. To believe that the world is a good place and that we can make it even better.
  • Virgo: To work hard. To make sure we ace that test and not to slack off just because we don't think we can do it, to go over that presentation one more time before you show it, to do ten minutes of exercise every day just because it's good for you, to live up to the standards you set for yourself.
  • Libra: To make a good impression. To check your grammar, to be polite on the Internet, to make sure you put on deodorant and you're not wearing pyjamas when you answer the door to get the post. To never fight fire with fire and maintain a calm discipline even when that anon was just plain rude.
  • Scorpio: To tell it like it is. To admit to yourself that they don't like you back, to tell your friend that they really shouldn't grow their beard out, to say 'Thanks, I know' when someone tells you you're beautiful. To be brutally honest and understand that life isn't fair.
  • Sagittarius: To experience as much as possible of the world. To say yes to every opportunity, to never be unkind when you can help it, to do things just because they're random and fun and no-one else can say they've done them. To make a real effort to be happy, even when it's hard.
  • Capricorn: To project confidence. To walk like you're going to murder the next person who so much as looks as you, to case your insecurities in iron and do that death stare like you just sold the world, to maintain control over yourself even when the rest of your life is broken.
  • Aquarius: To never compromise your individuality. To wear that lipstick even though your girlfriend doesn't like it, to stand up and speak when the school makes a stupid rule, to march with everyone else at Pride. To be unafraid not to fit in. To remember to pack up and leave when you want to.
  • Pisces: To be kind sometimes. To give a stranger a smile or even a hug, to make little gifts for your friends for no reasons, to be sweet and soft and sensitive and take the courage to be good even if it means being weak. To compliment everyone, and that includes yourself.
An Example Of How I Am "Arrogant" If Want To Speak To Another Black Woman
  • Me: "Hey, Black women with 4C hair, I have a question about genie locs and how yarn may start to lock into my hair if it is wool yarn versus acrylic yarn."
  • White woman: "I use yarn in my knitting!"
  • Black man: "I don't like natural hair."
  • Black man: "Yarn is still weave so obviously you like White supremacy."
  • White man: "Why are you excluding non-Black women from your conversation? All women face oppression, even White women."
  • Non-Black woman of colour with 3A hair: "You should ignore the hair typing chart altogether! Us women of colour have to stick together."
  • Random men in my DMs: **inserts unsolicited sexual images**
  • Me: "I kinda need replies from Black women, specifically here."
  • Black woman: "Hey I think Black women with 4c hair should..."
  • White woman: "Not to derail or interrupt, but don't you mean ALL women?"
  • Assorted Whites: "Obviously you are entitled, pretentious and arrogant and shouldn't use the Internet if you want people to be respectful because they have the right to derail. You're censoring free speech in a public place. Also, it is not conducive to discuss oppression while excluding people. And obviously a comment about your hair for another person with similar hair is discussing how structural oppression impacts all PoCs and all humans equally and the same at all times. You are a race Fact Portal after all, without an actual interior life. We mean, just have your conversations with other Black women in DM at all times. Problem solved! Stop complaining. Meanwhile us Whites will continue to use our timelines as we please without dealing with any of the fucking horseshit that you do since well...we are White after all, hahaha, and our follow counts are like 237."
  • White man: "Ooo, I loooove Black women with natural hair. Wink wink."
  • White woman: "Hey did you see how Cosima on Orphan Black has locs! That's appropriation! I noticed! Good allies always do. Let's discuss cultural appropriation right now for an hour, at least. I'll get it started with 14 replies to your original tweet, including racism 101 links that I saw on The Huffington Post."
  • White woman: "You should loc your hair for real. My BLACK boyfriend has locs. He doesn't like locs on Black women though, but I do, sister girl. Did I mention that my boyfriend is Black?"
  • Me: **scrolls through 5-100 or more replies to find Black women's replies considering the fact my retweet reach is 500K-2M people per month and my mentions reach is 5-15M people per month, according to SumAll, with almost 30K followers**
  • Black woman: "Hey sis, yeah, just be cautious when you use certain wools because if you magnify wool under a macro lens (you're a photographer and I saw you mention macros) you'll notice it looks like our hair texture quite a bit and can lock with our hair. Find bushier acrylic yarns, (if you want a more authentic look), over wool yarns to be on the safe side. Here's a linked photo of how mine came out."
  • Me: "Thanks for the reply, sis; appreciated."
