Reminder that Voltron is not a romance

The writers do not have a requirement to put in any of your ships in their show.
Don’t get mad at writers for not including romance in a sci-fi kids show.

Can I talk about one line I especially appreciate in Undertale?

On it’s own, this line is a huge wham line of feelings on its own. It’s one of the pinnacles of the Pacifist run. It’s a single sentence basically summing up the morals used through said run, and it’s pretty heavy. But it also has a personal meaning to me, and I’d like to talk about the way the lowercase ‘love’ is used. 

Throughout the game of Undertale there is no direct romance involving Frisk. (They’re a child, first of all, and that’s just not the focus of the game in general), yet, this term is used.

‘Love’. In media you never really hear that outside of sexual and/or romantic relationships. You only hear the term ‘love’ when kisses or romantic partners are being described. And as an Aromantic it’s almost alienating to me. You can’t ‘love’ your friends in media. You’re ‘best friends’. Or you ‘Care about each other’. And in familial relationships only young children tend to say they ‘love’ each other. It’s never used like that. It’s as if media treats those two types of love as somehow less real. 

But they’re not. They’re just as, if not more, important as romantic ‘love’. And frankly I love that this one line throws that idea down the drain. 

Because this is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

This is love

And this is love

And Undertale isn’t afraid to admit that.

If you're looking for prompts, might I suggest a pic of Peridot comforting a slightly stressed out Lapis? Something that shows how much Peri tries to help with her fellow gem work through the tough times?

if you get lost you can always be found

I can’t stop laughing over the racist neckbeards on the Marvel Facebook page upset about a completely innocuous illustration of Miss Marvel urging people to vote as being too politically biased towards Hillary (it doesn’t say anything about who to vote for, but apparently a Muslim superhero talking about the election is too much).

And the fuckboys in the comments trying to argue that freaking Steve Rogers would be an enthusiastic Donald Trump supporter. I’m fairly certain they’ve either never read a Captain America comic or watched one of the films, or they’re just misinterpreting the character to a BAFFLING degree.

positivity on this website

mlm positivity: you don’t exist for straight women’s fantasies, you aren’t predators, men loving men is good and wholesome, you aren’t a sinner

wlw positivity: you aren’t predatory and creepy, its okay to want to sleep with girls, nothing about you is dirty

trans/nb positivity: you aren’t “wrong” or making things up for attention, you are worthy of respect and love, you aren’t “faking” things for attention

ace/ar0 p0sitivity: you ARE queer! people DO hate you! DONT let people tell you there arent HATE CAMPAIGNS against you!!!!! you are VALID and QUEER and being reminded of your VERY REAL OPPRESSION is positivity!!! People WILL tell you you’re going to hell for not being sexually attracted to anyone!!!! Be PREPARED to get KICKED out of your HOME for being a cishet ace!!!! Your parents are going to put you in CONVERSION THERAPY for being a cishet!!!!!! People HATE you!!!! M O R E F E A R M O N G E R I N G !!!!!! uwu ur valid uwu <3 <3

trans men that are pre-op, pre-t, & pre social/physical transition still have a boy body. if youre a pre everything trans guy, since you are a boy, so is your body. you dont have to let people force you into the “stuck in a female body” trope that cis people love so much. you are a boy & you have a boy body because of it

the same goes for trans girls & nonbinary people

we dont have to let a cisnormative society dictate how we feel about our bodies & how we label ourselves

we werent born into the “wrong bodies,” we were born into a society that forces a gender label onto us & if you dare defy that youre expected to hate your body & feel trapped

whenever i see someone on this hellsite talking about how “irl lgbt communities are better because they don’t exclude ace people!!!1111” I’m like… you don’t get it, do you

school gsas have to be inclusive, if they dont let a certain subset of people in, the school will shut them down

just because you forced your way in doesn’t mean you belong, it means the people in that space tolerate you, not that they accept you

im speaking as someone who’s worked as a leader in a gsa for the past two years

most irl lgbt communities won’t do anything about cis het aces who force their way into their space because the lgbt community is vulnerable, and by entering that space, you take advantage
