Some More Stuff About Gender and Paganism

My post on gender and Paganism made TERFs mad.

Here are some more things that will make them mad:

Nonbinary people exist.

There are people who exist outside the gender binary.

Gender is a social construct.

Sex is also a social construct.

And before you say “But if they’re social constructs does that mean they aren’t important?” Here is another social construct: time.

Sex is a spectrum. Gender is also a spectrum.

Stop trying to get others to conform to your binarist notion of “masculine” and “feminine” energy.

If your tradition actively excludes people who fall outside the gender binary (or says that gender noncomforming people have “too much masculine/feminine energy”) it is harmful.

Scorpio is totally wild and untamed, disinterested in conforming to what has been said and done. Her love is impossible to bottle, it must be released into the ether like a potion from heaven. She stirs the waves of transfiguration and transformation through others, and she is much too complex to understand with language and the mind. She can make you feel sad for days on end, but she can also lift you higher than the sun and roll on the waves of the milky way with you. Pluto’s child is celestially stunning

how many people on this website do you think there are that are pretending to be gay because tumblr is so unaccepting of heterosexality?

asdfghjhv did you actually just ask this 

something i don’t see a lot in tumblr’s rhetoric about mental illness and recovery is a distinction between recovery through suppression and conformity and recovery through coping.

suppression and conformity is not recovery.  it implies that you are simply repressing the symptoms of your mental illness or disorder and causing yourself more pain.  suppression implies that you are ignoring your mental illness, not acknowledging your symptoms, and conformity implies that you are putting on a neurodivergent facade.  so many people assume that’s the end goal of therapy and medication (should people choose to do that) or general recovery. that people are trying to “cure” you.  it’s where i think a lot of the “i shouldn’t need to get better” rhetoric comes from.

but that’s not what recovery is.  recovery is coping.  it’s learning about yourself and how you tick.  it’s learning to recognize and acknowledge symptoms so you can better understand them and, ultimately, not let them control you.  it’s understanding that being “wired” differently isn’t a bad thing, but it can make things harder, and learning to recognize those distinctions and address them so you can make your life easier.  it’s recognizing that for some people, therapy and medication are the path to coping, and that the end goal of them is to make that learning and self-discovery process easier so that those people can do it independently in the long run.

recovery is not changing yourself to fit the world.  recovery is learning how to look the world in the eye and say “i now know how to coexist with you now.  i now know how to thrive.”

transitioning is not the process of becoming a woman

a trans woman who does not transition is as much a woman as any other

conformity should not be a requirement for validation

I saw my reflection in the mirror before a shower
My breasts don’t match the rest of me… they don’t look right, and I’ve always had dysphoria about them. I’ve never liked them ever since they grew on my chest. I never got used to them, either.

looking at how alien they looked on my body, I decided I want a chest binder
I do not want top surgery

But i can’t buy one… here’s why:

1. Transphobic family
2. No money
3. Nave no way to hide it from them
4. Transphobic highschool
5. Homophobic highschool
6. I’m very skinny, only 122lbs and I have no idea if this factor plays into getting a binder

But I need to raise the money for getting one, because i’m sooo uncomfortable without it. I can’t stand another day seeing those two strange-looking pieces of flesh on my chest
How am I going to do that?

I hate film theory. They blatantly ignore clearly laid out plot points to make things conform to their moronic theories. Not cringe just needed to complain.

what a surprise it’s just game theory but with movies

With what colors do you associate EXO members ?


Yellow is creative from a mental aspect, the color of new ideas, helping us to find new ways of doing things. It is the practical thinker, not the dreamer.


Gray conforms - it is conventional, dependable and practical. It is a color of maturity and responsibility, associated with the gray hair of old age. It will never be the centre of attention, it is too safe and toned down.


This color is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy.Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action.


Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.


A combination of blue and a small amount of yellow, it fits in on the color scale between green and blue. It radiates the peace, calm and tranquility of blue and the balance and growth of green with the uplifting energy of yellow.


Indigo stimulates right brain or creative activity and helps with spatial skills. It is a dramatic color relating to the world of the theater, which, during times of stress becomes the drama queen, making a mountain out of a molehill!


This color is one of trust, honesty and loyalty. It is sincere, reserved and quiet, and doesn’t like to make a fuss or draw attention. It hates confrontation, and likes to do things in its own way.


The color violet relates to the fantasy world, and a need to escape from the practicalities of life. It is the daydreamer escaping from reality. You are a gentle and free spirit. Your feelings run deep and you can be quite sensitive to hurtful comments from others, although you would never show it.


With its enthusiasm for life, the color orange relates to adventure and risk-taking, inspiring physical confidence, competition and independence. Those inspired by orange are always on the go!

I was wondering when you might release the character you've made as follower, i know that you do not like to hear this, and i know im being rude, but your characters would be fun to have in the adventure of Mordor, but if you cannot release it as a mod, then i understand. :3

This give me a chance to give a comprehensive response to this question, as it’s one I get quite often.

Let me start off by saying I’ll never release any of my OCs as followers and/or presets.

Now, there are quite a few reasons for this:
First off, I just don’t like seeing my characters in situations/behaviours that don’t conform to what’s my concept for that character, in my mind most of them have a very extensive backstory. I especially don’t wanna end up seeing any of my characters in hardcore (specifically hardcore, I’d be fine with just nude shots) screenshots, and while this may not be the majority of the situations, it would definitely happen, based on the kind of messages I received about them in the past.

For presets the situation gets worse, because not only would it allow them to be edited, but it would allow people to release my characters as their own followers with some editing, since there would be no way to give 100% proof that a certain character was modeled over mine.

We then have the issue that any of my followers would just be a prettier vanilla follower, as I don’t have any means of giving them a custom voice, or actual personality. We already have plenty of pretty followers  with vanilla voices/skill sets floating around, definitely no need to add to that. I am at some point gonna revamp the looks of some NPCs that in my opinion deserve to stand out a bit more like with the Court Wizards Revamp I’m working on.

Then we have the assets issue, as I don’t even remember what’s in my skin texture at this point, since I’ve been mixing and matching parts of different skins in it for months if not years. In other words, I couldn’t give proper credits to other authors.
Also every single one of my girls has a custom body, and while I switch them to mainstream bodies for outfits and such, When you normally see them they’re wearing outfits I adapted to them. Getting rid of their custom bodies would be removing one of the few things that makes them unique.

That said, I’m open to helping people making them as similar as possible.

TL;DR: Probably never going to happen. But I may revamp NPCs.

Guess that about sums it up, hope you guys understand. (;

This Day in Aviation History

December 11th, 1986

First flight of the McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle, which was derived from the F-15 Eagle.

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15E Strike Eagle is an American all-weather multirole strike fighter, derived from the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. The F-15E was designed in the 1980s for long-range, high speed interdiction without relying on escort or electronic-warfare aircraft. United States Air Force (USAF) F-15E Strike Eagles can be distinguished from other U.S. Eagle variants by darker aircraft camouflage and conformal fuel tanks mounted along the engine intake ramps.

The Strike Eagle has been deployed for military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, among others. During these operations the F-15E has carried out deep strikes against high-value targets, combat air patrols, and provided close air support for coalition troops. It has also been exported to several countries…..

Bodies, flesh, bumps and lumps.

At a certain point someone decided that dimples, lumps, bumps, variedly arranged flesh were without exception unattractive and unhealthy; yet, looking at paintings by Rubens, Rembrandt, or Michelangelo’s muscular women, even the contemporary ones by Ferri, one sees only the beauty, the harmony -even if the bodies do not necessarily fit current beauty standards. And how the whole painting would be spoiled by a perfectly smooth and polished figure, with no lumps, bumps, visible muscles or bones or succulent flesh with which light and shadows could play.
There were always beauty canons and people always did crazy things to fit them, but was there an age in which people felt so out of place in their normal, regular, well functioning bodies? There’s a huge business that can keep going only by constantly telling us how much imperfect we are, and how big a capital sin that is, how dare we not conform. This thing can prosper only if we spend money trying to reach such standards and keep failing at it, with fat not well distributed enough, women either too steatopygian or not enough steatopygian, never the right size or shape, teeth not white enough, noses too crooked bulbous or large, skintone either too fair or too dark, too much body hair, not enough body hair, not skinny enough, not fit enough, not smooth enough, not healthy enough. Being in my late twenties I still feel self conscious wearing shorts in summer because my legs are far from perfect, and I know plenty of people who criticize others for showing imperfect or uneven skin, even on the beach or in the summer heat (yes, for real).
How is any of this healthy?
How is any of this right?

And he return...

Había olvidado cuándo había sido la última vez que revisaba sus cosas viejas. Su madre era lo bastante nostálgica como para guardar con suma delicadeza todas sus pertenencias de cuando era un niño. Por un lado siempre pensó que era para ayudarle a recordar algunas cosas, partes de su vida durante su niñez que había olvidado… como el accidente que le había costado un ojo. 

         Era temporada de fiestas y ahora podía sentarse tranquilamente a revisar sin ningún apuro. Abrió una al azar, al destaparla encontró con facilidad un montón de papeles, juguetes, cuadernos viejos y fotografías. Lo primero que llamó su atención fue el montón de papeles que lucían viejos. 

           Se trataba de dibujos viejos que apenas y entendía, pero conforme los revisó notó un patrón: a su lado, sólo, o jugando con él, había otra persona y además de su propio nombre, la mayoría decía “Bel”, que parecía ser el nombre del otro niño que ilustraba junto a él.

¿Bel?…– Pronunció. Tenía vagos recuerdos de haber dibujado algunos, pero aquel nombre le sabía familiar…


Love how when the antis bitch and whine at A&E or about the show failing to conform to their headcanons they’re “providing insightful, critical analysis” and “challenging A&E to be better writers” (like themselves!), but if CSers complain, they’re just entitled, spoiled brats…..oh….or insecure about their ship

And I say this as a CSer who has not had one negative quip pass her lips about the midseason finale….because I saw it as a trollfic TO the haters..

Thoughts on Chapter One: The Promise of the Ultra-Right of Right-Wing Women by Andrea Dworkin.

1. I had no idea that opposition to the ERA centered so much on abortion.

2. She notes that antisemitism was a uniting force among Christian women of the South and was the main basis on which other women hated her: “Despite my clear presence as a lesbian-feminist with press credentials plastered all over me from the notorious Ms. magazine, it was as a Jew that I was consistently challenged and, on several occasions, implicitly threatened. Conversation after conversation stopped abruptly when I answered that yes, I was a Jew.”

3. While I think Dworkin’s sympathy for women who have so little respect for her is admirable, I do think that right-wing women do get more than the mere basics she suggests (form, shelter, safety, rules, love). I think that by studiously learning and conforming to the rules men have created, women can sometimes fool ourselves into thinking that most men truly consider us their equals, and that belief is comforting. I think there’s an illusion of equality, or at least the feeling of being “one of the boys” that’s extremely alluring (I’ve experienced this personally many times); and that that feeling often influences women’s politics, whether we understand it or not.

Tbh I'm quite surprised Ezra was ever engaged at all. The prospect of marriage seems such a conventional life decision and route at his age. On top of that with a girl who conforms to occidental idealised standards of beauty, not to mention his decision to dive into mainstream cinema-superhero films at that. He seems such an exceptional and distinct soul. I would never have thought he would make the decisions he has made. He's a walking dichotomy. Which only adds to his intrigue as a person.

Idk he comes off as a faux hippie to me that tries to make himself look more unique and deep than he really is, that pretentious ethereal prince as to why the blog is really named what it is LOL-natbat
