anonymous asked:

I'm a trans guy with wide hips, and I was wondering what's the best way to go about finding pants/jeans that wouldn't look so awkward on me. And if there's a good way to make hips look not so wide. Thanks

Hey man, so there are some things that are like binders for your hips- compression shorts. Those might help you, I don’t know how well they work so any followers have any information?

Cargo shorts and board shorts, if it’s warm where you live, do wonders to minimize hips. It’s almost incredible, actually. 

Always wear clothes that fit, test and try different cuts and styles until you find something that works best for you, some might pray up and down that straight legged jeans are the one and only cure, others might disagree. 

Weight loss and T can also help with this stuff, if you’re looking for a permanent fix like that. Anyone else have any tips?

If you are or know anyone who is at an airport:





Please protect yourself.

EDIT: Also, if you’re a green card resident who is a citizen of or from IRAN, IRAQ, LIBYA, SOMALIA, SUDAN, SYRIA, OR YEMEN:


If you’re somebody’s fp:

You don’t have to stay if you don’t want to. Take care of yourself. But don’t be an asshole about it. They’re going to be hurt, they’re going to feel abandoned, and unless you want to fuck with their head even more once you tell them you don’t want to be in their life anymore (nicely!!!) then stop all contact so they don’t get their hopes up again.

Logically, we know you can’t provide us with attention/affection 24/7, we know our fp’s are not a professional and are not our therapists, and we know our symptoms can be difficult – we’re the ones who have to live with our own symptoms every second of every single day. HOWEVER, don’t assume we aren’t trying to recover. If we do something that makes you uncomfortable or inadvertently hurts you, tell us so we can work on it with you. Communicate with us! Communicate often and keep our emotional permanence issues in mind!

If you’re someone’s fp and you’re thinking about leaving the relationship, because you’re just not happy anymore, or because they are abusive (no, people with bpd are not inherently abusive but there are abusive people with bpd) I really suggest you read the book Borderline Personality Disorder for Dummies, specifically Chapter 21: What To Do When Your Partner Has BPD. Even more specifically, page 274: “Walking Away from BPD”, page 277: “Leaving abusive relationships” & page 278: “Leaving non-abusive relationships” .. or if you can’t find this book online/don’t want to buy, message me. I own the book and I’ll tell you what it says plus my own thoughts as someone with BPD.

Of course we don’t want to be abandoned, but we also don’t want to have people in our lives who don’t want to be there.


Early little thing for V-Day while wearing some pretty bewb supportive shirts ahaha!
My Promptis feels burn strong! I even made a little head-canon for myself where Prompto gets a tattoo of the Virgo constellation on his neck where he has the most freckles. Noctis drew along to connect the dots for his zodiac sign one day as a joke and Prompto got permanent ink over it for him <3 I have fluffy feels and I wanted to share them with you all @^▽^@

Working With Spirits for Beginners

Before starting:

Protection!  Be it sigils or wards or poppet decoys or crystals or any of the like, make sure you have some sort of protection from mal intent.  

Ask yourself, where am I wanting this path to take me?  Are you wanting to have spirit teachers and learn new things? Are you wanting to be a medium?  Are you wanting to gain some friends?  Are you wanting to connect to different cultures and histories?  These kinds of questions will help you decide where to start and where to go from there!

Finding spirits:

One thing that you can research is having a spirit companion!  There are several blogs that I can’t think of off the top of my head that do personal conjurings, and other basically adoption centers!  If you do that, I would look for more beginner type spirits or just the ones that call out to you!  

If you don’t want a companion and are looking for something a little less permanent, I would look around you for something familiar.  Plants around you, your local cemetery, your favorite hike, seashells, crystals, bones, or any of that that you may have.  Most things have some spirit attached to them, including man-made objects, although those tend to be small colonies speaking through a representative (I can make a post on this later if you want).  

Starting Points:

There are two main starting points from here.  Sensing the spirits, and communication.  You can decide to focus on one, or even both!  I recommend starting with one at a time tho.


start reaching out, trying to find something.  It’s different for everyone, and it’s not something that you can feel and say, this is it.  You have to learn to trust yourself.  And even if you don’t, fake it ‘til you make it!  For me, feeling a spirit’s presence is subtle, but for others, it can be a really jarring experience.


You can use tarot, telepathy, pendulum, ouija boards, oracle, images, runes, or anything similar!   If using telepathy, ask yourself the question, ‘was that reply me talking?’ and if your answer is immediately yes, then it was you.  But if you have a moment of doubt, believe that it was your spirit!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!  I’ll do my best to answer.

“I don’t see color” is saying “I judge everybody by my lens and white culture, I judge everybody based on how they conform to white ideals”. That’s pretty…. racist. You should see color, you should see that people come from different backgrounds and have lived in a world that treats them differently. You should understand that your culture isn’t more important than other people’s culture. And you definitely shouldn’t ever judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. All people deserve the same respect for their heritage and background.

Tomi Lahren, you are truly one of a kind, and not in a particularly favorable light. You have compared the BLM movement to the KKK yet your Preacher Man rhetoric is very much of a Neo-Nazi Bible Thumper. Question: Do you see genocide, mass murder, a diaspora, a permanent displacement of home and country, an ethnic cleanse, political asylum, an aberration of freedoms to choose our religion, speech, pathology, and the way we think and the way we feel? If so, do tell because what I see is a narrow-minded privilege to the Aryan culture you were born with and a flagrant disregard to the other sides of life where hair extensions, fake lashes, and lip dermal collagen is not an everyday trip to the Cut-Copy-and-Paste Dr. Plastic. People all around us in America have the freedom to protest because we were dubbed inferior to the likes of you. Worst, there are people in disparaging harrowing acts of magnanimous sorrow, where the worlds are crashing beneath their feet and they are being labeled as terrorists when all they want is a refuge to make another place called home. You’re just a teeny-bobber airhead who presides in her laps of luxury as a chosen one when in reality, people like me feel sorry for people like you. Because of the color of my skin, I am presumably subservient to your “entity.” And we laugh at you because you don’t have the brain to buy a clue that you’re a sheep, being used like a Hermes bag that is so last season. You got your degree from Tump University and you have done absolutely nothing in life except to pander to the psycho right wing crap to conservative baby boomers who haven’t had an erection since the Reagan Administration.   Good job being a common-law Reaganomics whore.— Jennifer Brigitte

I work with 7th graders at an after-school program that services at-risk kids. Right before winter break over the course of a week, a bunch of them approached me complaining of stomachaches. 

I ran the usual gamut of questions I grew up with having been born with a neurotic 90-year-old’s digestive system: What did you eat today? Do you have any food allergies? How much did you eat? Have you eaten at all today (maybe you’re hungry)? Do you have a history of tummy problems?

After receiving unremarkable responses to the aforementioned questions, I moved on to the one that should warrant a polite whisper from most people but only elicited a slightly lowered voice from one so well-acquainted with intestinal distress and thus permanently numbed to its ravages: When was the last time you pooped?

And every single kid–Every. Single. One.–responded, on average, that they had not pooped for at least a week. One girl, whose agonized expression suggested that she was ready to welcome death’s sweet embrace then and there, said that she hadn’t done the deed for three weeks.

Three weeks.


Almost four. That is a month. An entire month poop-free.

It became clear to me that a serious discussion was in order. I’d a class full of constipated, agonized 13-year-olds who subsisted entirely on Takis and various artificial bread products. There was nary a grape or a carrot to be seen.They worshiped instead at the altar of the Hot Cheeto and whispered vespers to their lord and savior, the pan pizza.

So one day, near the end of programming, I gathered them all in a classroom. They took their seats, unsure as to why they were gathered there when they all had pressing appointments with a Snapchat filter.

They looked at me expectantly. I cleared my throat.

“When was the last time you guys pooped?” I asked.

The room erupted into cacophony.

“Ew, Miss!”

“That’s nasty!”

“Wait, ask me again–ask me again–!”

“Why you up there askin’ why we poop, Miss? You nasty!”

“This morning!”

“Say that again!” I shouted with a clap, pointing to the last student who had spoken. She looked startled.

“Yeah, you,” I said. “What did you just say?”

“I, um….I pooped this morning?”

“Okay, GREAT.” If they didn’t already, they were now fearing for my sanity. “What did you eat for dinner last night?”

“Well,” she said philosophically, “I had some chicken and some veggies like in a stir-fry.”

“Cool. Anybody have any idea why chicken and veggies are a good meal choice?”

One kid near the back hesitantly raised his hand.

“Because they…help you poop?”

I clapped again. “You got it. Why?”

“‘Cause they nasty,” someone else shouted.

“Okay, no, that’s not why. Also, they’re delicious, so reevaluate your life choices….Who knows what fiber is?”

“It’s the gross food they make you eat like fruit,” a girl in the front said.

“Not gross, but yes, fruit. Fiber is anything that acts like a brillo pad in your intestines. Veggies are full of fiber.”

“What’s that?”


“A brillo pad.”

“It’s those rough green things you use to clean the bathroom,” I explained.

"Pfft, I don’t clean my bathroom.”

I’d had a sneaking suspicion that he didn’t, but I kept that to myself, continuing, “Fiber helps move things along in your pipes. When you DON’T eat fiber, you come to me and tell me that you haven’t pooped in three weeks. Because without fiber, your body basically can only make steel poop, and then it gets backed up and gives you stomachaches.”

“This is gross, Miss.”

“Steel poop is grosser,” I said.

I spent the next ten minutes listing and discussing poop-friendly foods. In a development that should surprise approximately no one, barely any of the kids ate those foods.

“So it’s no WONDER you guys aren’t ever pooping because you basically eat modified paper products,” I finished. “Here’s your challenge. I want you to eat at least ONE of the foods listed here with every meal. And keep each other in check. Be a poop buddy.”

A few days later, six different students approached me after school. They all delivered more or less the same message, voices lowered confidentially, eyebrows quirked in pride.

“Miss,” they told me, “I pooped today.”

Even better, they began to hold each other accountable. Not all of them had joined the Poop Brigade, but recruitment into the ranks itself was a small victory.

And that is the story of how my students now habitually ask each other, “Have you pooped today?”

Meditation Stone Spell

This spell was particularly crafted because I have a hard time trying to meditate because most of the time, I find that I have a lot of other things to do like homework or watching a TV show, so this has helped. I’m sharing it because many have trouble meditating and this might help them :)

So, what you need for this spell (or what I used) is this:

  • A stone (I used one I picked from my last holiday to the beach that has this nice pinkish color)
  • Paint and brush (or just a permanent marker)
  • A sigil for meditation (I’ll attach mine below; you can use it if you want)
  • A tiny bowl
  • Herbs: 
    • Chamomile - meditation and calm
    • Lavender - calm and peace
    • Pine - freshness 
    • Sage - cleansing
    • Rosemary - purification and cleansing
  • Crystals:
    • Amethyst - purification and peace
    • Jasper - promotes mental and spiritual energy
    • Smokey quartz - meditation
    • Moonstone (it was actually opalite but well) - calm
  • Candles blue and purple

Yeah, lots of stuff, but you can just use what you have in hand. I wanted it to be really powerful and really infused, so I chose a wide range of herbs and crystals for the stone to absorb its powers.

Now, onto the procedure…

The first thing I did was craft the sigil and then paint it on the stone. I used white paint because it seemed like a nice contrast with the pink and it seemed more calm and “meditative” with white than just black marker. The sigil means “I meditate with ease”. Note: this procedure took a bunch of time and you need patience if you’re using my sigil. I didn’t take it into account when I was making it, and it was a surprise once I started (plus, I didn’t have any thin brushes); but I liked my sigil and I gave it a shot. Worth it, because it looks really cute. You can make a simpler one if you wish :)

The night I chose to do the spell wasn’t particularly special, it was just when I had time, but a waxing or full moon would work great.

So first I blessed all my herbs because I hadn’t done it before he, and then I proceeded to put a bit of each of them in the tiny bowl I placed in the center of the pentacle (doesn’t need to be tiny, but it fitted better for me). Then I surrounded it by the crystals and lighted the 2 candles. After that, I placed the stone commanding it  to absorb all the powers and properties of the herbs, crystals and candles. I let the candle burn and voila! Done. I left the stone in the herbs for a couple of days to make sure every bit of energy was absorbed by it.

My experience: After I started using the stone, I found I could concentrate more easily or more like go into the task of meditating without much of a fuss, which is nice, because I always tried to find a way around and not doing it (i.e.: I’m too tired to do so, I have homework, I’d rather work on my BoS/grimoire, etc). For the time being, I have meditated for 5/6 days in a row, which is amazing, because I never went past 2 I think xD

Hope some of you can find it useful! Blessings :) - Wiccanery

It’s National Coming Out Day tomorrow and I just want to remind everyone of a few things:

  • You do NOT have to come out! You should never feel pressured to. 
  • Only come out IF you are safe and accepted.
  • There is no “CORRECT” way to come out. Everyone is different and there’s no perfect format for the dialogue.
  • You’re allowed to change. Don’t feel like the identity you come out as is permanent. Some people find one label and it sticks, some change their label before finding the correct one, some never do and some don’t believe in labels. 
  • Most importantly: YOU DO YOU. There are no rights or wrongs.

Be safe lovelies and I am sending my best wishes for you all.

Empty Houses

1. The houses represent the fundamental, universal, inherent dimensions of human existence that everyone automatically, permanently has in their life. Everything you encounter and experience will relate to one (or more) houses in some way or another. You will have experiences with all of the twelve houses.

2. Having no planets in some houses is not automatically bad, just like having planets in other houses is not automatically good. The natal chart is neutral. The energies it puts into place in you manifest negatively or positively based on your free will, environment, opportunities, upbringing, biology, psychology, self-awareness, self-control, et cetera. Nothing is inherently good or bad.

3. The houses do not need the planets to exist. The planets do not initiate or activate the houses. The houses exist on their own, no matter what. Whether they contain planets or not does not change the fact that they still have a sign on their cusp and will therefore play a part in your life. No matter what.

4. With these three things in mind, let me provide an example. Let’s say your 4th house has no planets in it. Because the 4th house is associated with the home, mother, early life, private life, and emotions. Without any planets, will you lack a biological mother? Will you lack a childhood? Of course not. Even if you could, this would directly relate to the 4th house because it is in its realm.

5. The areas of life associated with each house is neutral. Even if the planets did activate the houses, to not have a house activated would not necessarily be a bad thing because it does not certainly entail the absence of the good things that could come out of that area of life. There are bad things that can come out of the houses as well. The houses are associated with territories, not blessings, not tragedies. It’s not possible to lack one of the twelve fundamental territories, but if it was, it would not inherently be a curse nor a gift.

Interested in Succulents?

For my succulent lovers out there, Home Depot got new ones in at 3.33 (3 for 10) per plant (large). They have some very vibrant species!

Be sure to buy a brown clay pot to replant it in while you’re there so it doesn’t die (any pot with a drainage hole will do)-about 75 cents or so. If you think the clay pots are ugly, soak them for a few hours in warm soapy water then rinse them until there are no bubbles on the pots and reaping with permanent paint (non toxic obviously). Don’t need to paint the inside past about an inch around the rim. Soaking them is important-trust me don’t skip this!

Don’t water it after you re-pot for about a week (just in case some roots broke), and repot with soil that doesn’t retain a lot of water (no seed starting soil).

If you tend to underwater throw some aquarium (only aquarium or rocks made specifically for plants) rocks on the top (and a few tablespoons mixed in too) to have to water even less, and keep dead leaves or pests out of the succulents.

Walmart sells aquarium rocks natural and colored in several sizes between 2-4 dollars.

If you live in a humid area, avoid rocks on the top.

Place in the brightest window in your home!

Don’t mist the plant, only water when plant is thirsty (look up your plant species to see what your thirsty plant looks like!!), and water even less frequently in the winter!

When purchasing plants look for the succulents that has the leaves closer together or plumper then other ones of the same species (if it looks like it’s starting to STRETCH out, don’t take it home unless you’re planning to just propagate it in the spring/summer).


Ellana Lavellan | Headcanon Meme - ♦ quirks/hobbies headcanon requested by @kellinahasaship 

Every now and then there’s the quirk of having a cultural clash with human customs. 

The hobby Ellana loves the most has become Gardening. Until now all she could do was work with dry herbs fit for travelling for her herbalism, so having a live garden permanently in one place she can actually see grow over time is something new entirely. It’s been a learning experience, but she loves the patience and tranquility required. It’s a welcome break from the hectic nature of her duties. 

But she’ll still never understand why people like to give each other cut flowers that will die so soon, she’ll only gift live plants in pots and prefer the same in return.
