Tumblr’s starting to develop this really disturbing habit of calling anyone who screws up in an interpersonal relationship “abusive.”

Which. No. No, guys, that word means something very important, especially in the context of friends, lovers, and family. It describes deliberate actions taken to control the behavior of another, not the occasional emotional screw-up or unconscious personality flaw.

Please stop using it to mean, “character who did things I disagree with.” That’s bad of you.

Cecil Baldwin talks openly about HIV for the first time. I love him, and I’m so incredibly proud of him. Honored to call him a friend, my fictional podcast boyfriend, and a stigma-ending badass.

  • Cecil: My Boyfriend, Carlos t. Scientist!
  • Carlos: Sweetie, I DO have a real last name, you know.
  • Cecil: I acknowledge that you have a last name, but it's an ill-fitting last name and I have elected to ignore it. You should really change it.
  • Carlos: Oh yeah? What to?
  • Cecil: *sly smirk* Palmer. *walks away*
  • Carlos:
  • Carlos:
  • Carlos:
  • Carlos: WAIT
  • Carlos: WAIT!!
  • Carlos: W A I T A M I N U T E!!!
  • Carlos: WAS THAT A PROPOSAL DID YOU JUST PROPOSE TO ME?!
  • Carlos: DON'T WALK AWAY LIKE THAT COME BACK HERE

what if carlos wears normal shirts all the time time but cecil just assumes they’re all various types of lab coats. like his “laid-back weekend lab coat” is just a flannel shirt and his “running lab coat” is a windbreaker or something but cecil decides since carlos is a scientist of COURSE everything he does and wears must be scientific
