dont listen to what people say

i kind of do not like it when people say ‘dont make fun of young artists!’ but then turn around and mock all of those cliche writing tropes that are always in fanfiction and stuff……UHHH everyone starts out by mimicking what they know to be popular and its really embarrassing and discouraging to be made fun of for that just like it is to be made fun of for having ‘bad’ art or ‘bad’ ocs or anything

anonymous asked:


okay so, this is obviously about this post I made. There are a lot of things wrong with this ask, but let me just list down the top three:

1.) You claim that katsudeku is abusive, yet give me no proof to justify your statement. You send me this message in hopes to either try to change my mind or ridicule me for defending what i ship, yet you lack the source nor any explanation as to why you find this ship so ‘abusive’. You don’t just go around sending messages like this to people and expect them to actually take you seriously? I mean, we’re not little kids anymore who get angered and throw a tantrum just cause someone else likes what you don’t. Your way of trying to get me to see your point is both childish and disrespectful, and I find it both offending (because not once have I tired to tell any other account who does not ship katsudeku yet ship Katsuki with any other character in the manga that their ship is ‘abusive’ when Katsuki is such a “violent and abusive” character) and pointless (because, you’re obviously not going to put up a fight to prove your point and just did this to make me feel insulted.)

2.) The fact that you blatantly ignored chapters of Katsuki’s character development throughout the manga means that you still probably claim him to be the bully and Izuku as the victim. When in fact, starting from just the first chapter of the manga, you can easily see that Katsuki was not the only one who viewed Izuku’s dream of being a hero as “impossible” and “ridiculous.” Katsuki isn’t the sole reason for any of Izuku’s issues with anxiety or lack of confidence because most of the people in his life through out his childhood, even his mother and All Might (at the start) thought that his dreams were too far fetched for someone who was quirkless, it wasn’t just Katsuki who thought of him as weak, when even the quirk biased society he lives in saw Izuku as both weak and ridiculous for even dreaming of becoming a hero. Quoting from a statement made by explodo-smash: “Deku’s problems at the beginning came from multiple facets stemming from his quirklessness and the quirk biased society he lives in, it’s a dragging part of the narrative and has an explicit influence on not only Deku’s psyche but Bakugou’s as well, in the reverse direction.”  And further more, if you’re going to come at me with the well-known scene where Katsuki told Izuku to “ take a swan dive off the roof” I would like to say that it was stated by Katsuki’s friends that what he said was “going too far” for Katsuki’s usual behavior (meaning this is probably the only time Katsuki has ever said this to Izuku, and that was uncalled for) That isn’t Katsuki’s usual behaviour, so stretching that out over the years they’ve been together is complete bullshit. Another thing is the fact that throughout those years, not once has Izuku regarded Katsuki as a bully nor someone abusive (and with Izuku’s intellect and observant nature, he’d probably know if someone was bullying him), sure he’s aware of Katsuki’s foul mouth and asshole behavior, but not once has he found Katsuki abusive. It just goes to show us how much Izuku admires and cares for Katsuki, Izuku didn’t take Katsuki’s words literally and he most certainly finds him admirable despite Katsuki’s personality. Izuku always saw Katsuki as someone brilliant and amazing, and he felt this so strongly that he said Katsuki was someone closer to him than even All Might (can you believe that? The All Might, Izuku practically worships this man, yet he still finds himself drawn closer to Katsuki). If you can’t see the amount of positive influence Katsuki has on Izuku, then you’re pretty much ignoring a large part of his character and development as well as Katsuki’s potential of being a hero in this story.

I strongly believe that their relationship isn’t as broken or horrible as some people say it is. Izuku still obviously cares for Katsuki (if the numerous times he was worried for Katsuki’s well being and claims of Katsuki being someone “brilliant” wasn’t obvious enough) Katsuki was litterally the first one he confides about his quirk being borrowed, when he doesn’t even owe Katsuki this explanation, he didn’t tell his mom about this, but once Katsuki is in the picture and misunderstood the situation, Izuku just had to hell him. Also, Izuku being the only person whom Katsuki has been emotionally open to (he has shown both weakness and vulnerability to no one except for Izuku), despite having other friends he could have confined to, shows just how deep their relationship is as to what most claim to view it. You don’t just go showing and venting your pent up frustrations and troubles to someone you claim to “hate.” Let me also state that, once Katsuki found out Izuku wasn’t lying and did manage to burrow someone’s quirk, he took Izuku seriously and when he finally found out that Izuku was All Might’s successor and was able to clear up a bit of their misunderstandings in the past, he was willing to change. He even gave Izuku an advice for his new move!

Katsudeku shipping does not romanticize abuse nor do we defend what Katsuki said to Izuku as justifiable, but what we do support is the fact that, despite their rocky relationship in the past which was full of misunderstandings, there’s just too much good and potential in their relationship to bloom into something beautiful and positive. There are too many instances where these two boys have inspired each other to perform better. They literally balance each other out. The manga has given us scenes where Katsuki has positively influenced Izuku’s growth both as an individual and as a hero. They motivate and inspire each other to reach their dreams. Katsudeku shipping supports the growth, development, and depth of their relationship and it’s potential for a positive and beautiful relationship/ And honestly, I don’t find this abusive and I will continue to defend it despite what others claims to view this relationship as.

3.) And lastly, just the fact that you were immature enough to send this message to me without facts or reason other than wanting to make me feel bad for shipping something that I like is what I find so wrong about this message. I like what I ship, so let me ship it peacefully. I didn’t come here to ruin nor insult other people for shipping what they want, so let me and the other katsudeku shippers be. I get that you and many others may not agree with this, but quite frankly, we don’t give a damn. Spending the time to write insulting massages like this to other people when you can easily avoid the katsudeku tags is honestly a waste of your time and mine as well.

So, hopefully, this will be the last time someone tries to insult me for shipping what i like.

(Also, the fact that Katsuki was willing to admit and take the blame for Izuku and the fact that Izuku was also willing to point out it wasn’t just Katsuki’s fault just goes to show how much these two have grown both as an individual and in their relationship.)

i want to be in a band so bad it’s actually killing me. like just the thought of being in a van with my best friends, traveling across the country and making music that has the potential to inspire people to do the same thing could actually send me to the grave

Mom: I’m thinking that it would be alot easier for you if you were with people more like you

Sana: I can manage having Norwegian friends and be myself at the same time!

ok but can we talk about this for a second?? sana insisting she can be herself with norwegian non-muslim friends. but… we haven’t seen that? we’ve literally seen sana get misunderstood countless times and brushed over by her friends in the last four days alone. yes she can be herself in the sense that she’ll usually speak her mind but her being with those girls at the moment, no matter their history, is draining her right now and she is sacrificing her emotional wellbeing. sana’s mother telling her that it would be easier for her to be around people like her was so… sad tbh. sana’s mother must notice how out of place sana can feel, being invited to things/go to parties when its time for her to pray, her friends putting her in the position where she doesn’t want to say no for fear that she’ll just… lose them? it feels like sana’s reply is defensive and it makes me believe she’s not at that point yet where she can verbally tell the girls what they’re doing is shitty and im :/

sana loves those girls so damn much and listen, i dont doubt they love her too. but right now that’s not enough, right now they aren’t seeing what they’re doing and its impact on sana and that is going to blow up in everyone’s faces real soon.

Gladiolus: You’ve got the makings of greatness in you! But you have to take the helm and chart your own course! Stick to it! No matter the squall! There’s gonna come a day when you’ll really get to test yourself and show the world what you’re made of! And I hope I’m there, seeing the light come off of you that day.

Prompto: Now you listen to me and listen good! A winner is just a loser who never learned to give up! So you be the best loser you can be and keep going! I’ll be cheering for you in the stands even if I cheer alone!

Ignis: Everything may seem hopeless right now, but there is a law in the world that is an undeniable truth. Good and better days will, and have to come. This storm will pass as all things do, and then you will be laughing at such a thing that you once feared.

Cor: In all my years I’ve learned many truths. Some that sound too good to be true, but they are. Let me tell you that what I am about to say is true; A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Regis: There now, dry your eyes and lift your head up. Keep it up and may it never lower. Why you ask? Your crown might fall if you do so. A crown alight with all those brilliant ideas the world has yet to bare witness in this cold dark reality.

Cid: Take some advice from this old man, just do what you got to do to be happy. Life’s too short to be doing stuff to make other people happy. It’s real simple thinking, but too many folks don’t do it. Do whatever; sleep in a little, splurge a little, eat that treat youve been craving it dont matter what you do as long as it’s for yourself. Selfish? Maybe, but is it so selfish to take better take care of yourself?

Clarus: Walk tall and do not falter. You might think that it’s for a lost cause for you don’t see an audience, you don’t recquire one. Do it for yourself first and foremost, and if others are in awe of you wish that they can do the same for themselves.

Cidney: Dont listen to the people who talk behind your back. You’re just two steps ahead of them is all! Instead of walking down other peoples paths, you go on ahead and make your own so other people can follow!

Gentiana: I know the days appear without end, a cold, dark barren wasteland. But it is in a wasteland where storms can be the strongest, and the deadliest. You are that storm. Nothing is in your way.

Lunafreya: Do not hide away your emotions. If you are sad, then cry. If you are mad, then scream. It is a reminder that you are human; and as any human you evolve. Stronger than ever before.

Ravus: Give no satisfaction to those who are attempting to destroy you. What words they speak they merely wish unto themselves, but are cowards to do so. You are no coward.

Areana: You beating yourself up? You a masochist or something? Heh, we’re our own worst enemies, but like they say; keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Even if that enemy is yourself, with each time you decide to keep going you’re beating yourself for entitely different reasons. That’s the way it should be.

Ardyn: Now, now my dear, no need to fret. You may think you’ve lost and failed at everything. But to have never tried, is never to have lived and besides - when you have nothing to lose, you have all to gain.

Nyx: Y'know, most people would have given up a long time ago. They wouldn’t have even bothered at all to keep going…So why do you? Heh, dont know? ‘Cus you got “something” to still keep you going even if you dont know what that is yet. Keep going to find out what it is, and if you can’t find the reason - then keep going for me, cus I’ll always give you one.

Libertus: Listen to me, you might say I’m just telling you this cus I 'oughta but I say it cus I really do care 'bout ya.The world would be more dark without you here. I mean it. You’re one little light out of a million, a billion out there and you might not think that you stand out or shine - but you do. Sometimes one little candle is all you need to not be afraid of the dark.

Crowe: You know when all is said and done at the end of the day, no matter how horrible it was - you’re still you but only better. It may not be by much, you might not even notice it. You survived and you learned, so that’s an accomplisment unto itself.

Drautos: I’ll tell it to you straight and simple; just do it. Whatever it is or whatever it may be, go on and try. Learn from it if you fail, keep trying if you want to. Kick ass and take names.

Luche: Head back, back straight and deep breaths. Take your own time when it comes to things, at your own pace. No one is rushing you, only yourself.

Dino: Listen 'ere kid, greatness ain’t born, it’s made. Like a diamond. Little peice of coal takes forever to be something that everyone wants. So take your sweet 'ol time and be the diamond everyone wants, and then dont! 'Cus a precious stone like you belongs to nobody!

laelaloo  asked:

Okay, I'm looking to get a cockatiel. I've been looking into them for WEEKS now, but I still feel unprepared, and I really want to get some actual first-hand knowledge from a person. I'm really not sure what to ask specifically! ^^; Any tips you'd give me, this being my second bird--after a budgie--and my first cockatiel? (Any knowledge at all would be helpful! from recommended cage size to what might be a good healthy diet!~) Please and thank you~~

hey darling!!! god sorry its taken me forty years to get to my ask, i’ve been so swamped at work IT SUCKS



1) ALWAYS ADOPT. i know you see that cute birbo in the pet store window, but please, PLEASE, refrain from purchasing him.  there are currently THOUSANDS of homeless birds in north america alone that need you to be their guardian. i know you want to save that baby from the pet store, but doing so continues the cycle.  they’ll just replace him and the horror continues.

2) GET THE BIGGEST CAGE YOU CAN AFFORD! do not listen to what the pet store clerk says (lol i worked in a pet store and straight up i would discourage people from birds EVERYDAY and tell them to rescue and that none of our cages are big enough, and they listened and adopted and im surprised the boss didn’t find out and fire me HAHAHHA) i would go to a bird specialty store to find your cage - you want to make sure it is durable enough, the bar spacing is correct (for a cockatiel you want them no more than half an inch space, theyre little and you dont want them to get stuck!!) i suggest powder coated cages, they’re easiest to clean the poop out of!!!!

3) GOOD DIET IS SO IMPORTANT. STAY AWAY FROM SEED!!!! seed despite popular belief is not very good for them.  it causes fatty liver disease and can make them ill and shorten their lifespan. (rose is now put on milk thistle-it buffersthe liver, as from the shit sanctuary she was from… god knows what she ate so now im in the process of getting her liver spiffy clean!) a good PELLET DIET is SO, SO SO SO IMPORTANT. and dont be discouraged, it is very hard to change a birb from seed diet to pellet.  so you have to change it over gradually and honestly, it can take a year to get that done.  rose is picky as hell, but i found a pellet she likes which are the Zupreem fruit pellets.  they’re not the healthiest, but they’ll do as now she is eating by herself.  i used to have to hand feed her ALL THE TIME like the diva she is.

 Here is a list of good pellets!! (from best to ok)

- Goldenfeast Goldenobles (quinoa based instead of corn, i wanna change rose to this when she’s ready!!)

- Harrisons Fine High Potency (start with high potency and then go to adult formula - gives em the nutrients they need for switching. corn based, and not my fav but it is vet reccommended but id say goldenfeast is better as corn aint that great)

- Pretty Bird (fruity and like, kinda okay? its better than zupreem lmfao but its very sweet, and makes their poo colourful)

- Zupreem (available at most pet stores, comes in fruit, veggie, nut, and natural flavours. what Rose eats and its a pretty good food. i believe its corn and soy based, not the best, and there is sugar in it, but its a good starter for your bird as they will most likely eat it because its colourful and sweet!!! from having Rose on a pellet diet - her plumage looks AMAZING)

all those brands come in different size pellets, i would go with the SMALLEST as it is easier for them to eat, and if you mix it with seed it kinda blends in hehe

4) DON’T JUST FEED PELLETS. A birbos diet should be 80% pellets (give or take) and 20% fruits, veggies, grains, and good stuff!!!! making a chop is a good idea, and you can freeze it and take out some everyday for their breakfast/dinner!!! Rose is very picky, and a rescue may be too, but do some research on what good fresh foods are good for birds!!! rose’s fav are zuchinni, peppers, pasta, scrambled egg (shes obsessed with egg) and chinese snow pear!!!

5) LOTS OF TOYS, AND THINGS TO DO!!! PIMP out their cage with dope toys, various perches and material (AVOID SAND ONES, HURTS THEIR TOES. get natural wood, rope (if u know they wont shred and accidentally eat it) and various thicknesses!!!) and im not saying spend a fortune (whcih i have with rose omfg) undyed popsicle sticks are amazing, paper, toilet paper rolls, cardboard etc they LOVE. but also, a good store bought toy is nice too!!! but most you can make from home!! plus i have a store where i have handmade toys, ill be posting more selection too!!

6) BE PATIENT WITH THE BABY! they most likely won’t warm up to you RIGHT AWAY (i mean they might, depends on their personality!) so do not feel discouraged if they dont want to play or cuddle right away. and heck, they may not even like cuddles. they’re as much as individuals as we are as humans. rose is usually attached to my shoulder all day, but some days honestly she just plays by herself and doesn’t want me to play with her HAHAHA. when you bring them home, introduce them to their cage and let them hang inside and get used to it.  sit near them and chat and offer some millet and let them come to you.  its a whole new world for them, so allow them some time!!!

7) and the most controversial topic… TO CLIP OR NOT TO CLIP? okay, my two cents on clipping goes as written.  if it is safer for them in your house, please get their wings properly by an avian vet or an experienced staff memeber at a bird specialty store. clipping them incorrectly can cause balance issues and confidence issues and trust issues. NEVER CLIP THEM YOURSELF AS THEIR OWNER. THEYLL BE PISSED AF. and most likely scared of you. if your house is unsafe -ie people coming in and out, small space, lots of windows, forgetful people that leave windows open, PLEASE CLIP THEM. it will save their life and prevent any deadly accidents.

if you HAVE THE SPACE. and know that they will be safe, and you believe they will be okay, leave them flighted!! it is much easier i must say having smaller birds flighted as they won’t be as cramped in a house as a big bird would be.  Rose is flightless as she chews her flight feathers, but they are growing back.  and even if they all did, my place is way to small to allow her to fly properly so i would keep her clipped for her safety.  also, if there was an emergency - such as a fire - it is much easier to evacuate a flightless bird than a flighted one.  i have really bad ocd when it comes to impulsive thinking and i obsess over how i would get rose out in a fire all the time… so keep a pillow case by the cage, and if god forbid that happened, grab your baby, toss em in the pillow case (protects them from smoke inhalation) AND HIGH TALE THEE FUCK OUT OF THERE. and that would be easier if they are clipped… just food for thought.  

anyway i hope this helped you and others maybe too!! im sorry this took forever to get to, my lifes been insane.  please do TONS OF RESEARCH TOO and look into rescues. if you need any more help let me know my love <3

Some younger goths react to goth so weird. Like some get into goth without knowing anything about the music and then they break under the pressure the subculture pushes on them, not only becoming elitists but the type of annoying, pompous twits most of us had to put up with in highschool. Goth music actually ruins a lot of cool people. And i dont mean the music itself. Its that pressure to listen to it. To enforce the idea that goth music has been and is the absolute most important part of the subculture when in reality most of the original goths dont care. Goth elders who had/have their own post punk bands and were there in the 80’s dont care. Goths in their 40’s who have been DJs at goth clubs for decades dont care. Goths in their 50’s who write and publish novels now who have a vast collection of underrated, underground goth music from the 80’s and 90’s on their computer dont care. Ive never met a single elder who was goth back then care how young people do goth now. Ive never seen an elder goth complain that kids these days dont know all the bands they liked. It seems that the ones who shove the music down everyones throat and try to dictate what is and isnt goth are all young people who have broken under the subculture’s pressures. Pressures that werent even there in the 80’s. Ive never been insulted or bullied by an elder but ive been put down by goths younger than me over petty things like saying i dont mind some nu goth fashion. Its really sad because i feel like some of these people really do give up parts of themselves just to better fit the “goth mold” and they miss out on enjoying other things in life. Most elder goths dont care if you listen to music that isnt goth. Most elders had friends back in the 80’s who were punks and mods and there wasnt pressure to know the name of every goth icon. Freaks and weirdos hung out together. There were goths who loved Bauhaus but hated the Sisters of Mercy. Goth before it had its name was different and it makes me sad to see kids turn into what they hate just to fit into an invisible mold. Just because a subculture came from music doesnt mean the music should become a tool used to control and dictate what and who is and is not part of a subculture. Music is powerful and meaningful and some people feel they cant live without it. Its terrible that so many younger goths use it as a weapon against people they dont like or agree with.

listen,,ive been up all night thinking about this,,but in two-player game a line is "its an effed up world but it's a two player game" and like,,,two people against the world,,,sounds like a plot to some kind of romance/adventure idk what im trying to say is that it kinda sounds like theyre hinting at a romance (but like not really?? cause theyre friends i guess)??? im really tired im so sorry ignore me

no, anon, i feel u. this line is very Best Friends Who’ve Got Each Other’s Back Against The World, but also the romance/adventure feel is Certainly there, spurred on i think by the easy devotion the whole song all in all conveys. 

id like to thank you, anon, because reading this just gave me an Idea: The Amazing Race AU

watch Best Friends Michael Mell and Jeremy Heere travel across the world to accomplish tasks, get lost, yell at each other sometimes, test the bounds of their friendship, and, to the audience’s and the producers’ fucking glee, slowly fall in love.

the producers of this season are trying their best to find anything thatll make this season stand out from all the rest of the seasons, and their salvation comes not in an ~exotic~ location, but in the burgeoning love story happening between what is arguably the fan favorite duo. michael and jeremy have no idea they just turned into the world’s new favorite romance story, but to be fair, theyre too busy running around the world, wondering exactly what this feeling inside their chests is.

jeremy has to bungee jump off a cliff and michael holds his face in his hands and says softly “you don’t have to do this, okay?” but jeremy just looks into his eyes, determination steeling, and tells michael. “i want to. for us.”

one episode, team Best Friends faces off against team Newly Dating, Rich Goranski and Jake Dillinger, and team High School Sweethearts, Jenna Rolan and Christine Canigula, and team Fiancees, Chloe Valentine and Brooke Lohst, in a pair challenge. it’s a really fun episode because even though everybody’s playing to win, it’s also a joy to see each duo support each other and who they love

(”We worked really hard,” Christine says in an interview portion of the episode they got eliminated, beat by team Best Friends by a slim two minutes. “And it’s been a blast. I’m just so happy I got to see the world with the woman I love, and I have no hard feelings against Michael and Jeremy. They obviously love each other too.”

the camera man whispers something to her.

“Wait, what?” Christine blinks.)

(”Wait, so they aren’t dating?” Rich Goranski says in another interview portion. He looks back to where Jeremy and Michael were talking about the latest cryptic riddle they had to figure out to find the next location. Their faces were close. Very close. “For real? Holy shit.”)

(”You guys better be milking this,” Chloe remarks while in the background Michael and Jeremy tenderly hug after accomplishing a challenge. “This is ratings gold.”)

michael’s multilingual prowess saves their lives when they end up in spain and all the other teams are lost as fuck. in this episode, theres a moment that gets gif’d faster than the speed of light where michael speaks rapid fire spanish to somebody, asking for directions, and jeremy’s eyes go wide, gaze meeting the camera. michael’s filipino skills come in handy once again when they go to the philippines. there, they dont get lost so much as get stuck in traffic, and they end up just barely scraping by. the episode is popular, though, despite the fan favorite almost being disqualified, because of one moment shot in a taxi where, to cheer jeremy up, michael sings along to the songs on the radio. the taxi driver claps when hes done, and jeremy is smiling by the end of it.

maybe they dont win, but after, when theyre flying back home, theyre holding hands and smiling. i dont know which one of them figures it out first, but it happens. one of them realizes that out of all the beautiful places theyve seen, nothing can beat this.

alright so when it comes down to it writing slash or nsfw fanfiction of mlm if youre a girl in and of itself isnt homophobic or fetishism. 

however if you go out of your way to put mlm in nsfw situations, talk about how hot gay guys are, only care about gay rights for your ships (ex. i want gay rights so my gays can finally get married), call yourself sinful, call yourself a fujoshi, dont listen to criticism from actual mlm, treat mlm like nothing like imaginary people/fantasies to get off to, or any variation of these things then youre fetishizing mlm and youre homophobic

mlm are not some fantasy or some imaginary thing for you to pretend dont exist. when we say something is gross or fetishistic listen to us. dont just brush off what we say because “we just want to stop your fantasies.” we are people, we have thoughts and emotions, and we are not your fantasies or a fetish so please stop treating us like we are.

so the get down has been cancelled,,, 

listen here, that show is so damn important and deserved to go running for another 11 seasons,,, the show not only had a cast entirely of people of color, but it also had lgbtq+ representation (A GAY INTERRACIAL COUPLE IN THE FUCKING 70s YALL), and they addressed important issues such as racism and sexism and acceptance, what i dont understand is how everyone claims to want a great show with representation and breaks down barriers when we had the get down but most chose to ignore it, im not really sure how to say this or put it out there but that show is EXTREMELY important to me and the few fans it does have, to say im disappointed is an understatement.

i cannot stress how important it is to be engaging in the writing community here

you have people who share your problems in writing, who have tips that can save your chapter or even your book, and sometimes even you. they can lend an ear and they can listen to your crazy ideas and though they dont have to give you feedback they can.

so put your shyness away and contact that person you’ve been following for months or just followed and talk to them, ask them for advice, tell them about your story. whatever.

scared of their reaction? most writers are kind souls who want to help others achieve good things in writing. and what if someone says for you to sod off? you say thanks and you find someone worth your time.


anonymous asked:

How do I find my true self? Sometimes I feel as if I don't know myself!

You need to isolate yourself.. stop hanging out with people stop talking to people. Just be by yourself for as long as you want until you feel you know yourself. You need to go on your own self discovery and figure out who you are. take your earbuds out and put your phone away. Bury yourself in books and write in your journal. Try a lot of different things, even things you think you hate! give it a second try. Go on dates with yourself. Go on walks. Start to pay attention to how you think and what you think about. Meditate and learn how to destroy everything people have told YOU about yourself. We tend to listen to what people have to say about us and we believe it. You could be told by a friend you are very sensitive but you truly dont feel that way.. so you believe you are sensitive just because they said you are. That makes no sense to do since you are your own person, no one knows you better than yourself, you were born in one body with one soul. You have been with yourself since the beginning of time so dont let anyone tell you who you are . So go on a journey and figure stuff out

Hi. Asexual PSA. Asexuality, as any ace person will tell you, is the lack of attraction to anybody. Which means in allo terms, you know when you look at someone, and you’re just not attracted to them? Like there’s nothing wrong with them, you’re not repulsed or repelled, you just arent attracted? I.e., how you’d probably feel for most random people you’d see on the street? For an asexual person, they experience that same lack of attraction with every single person (or most people if they are gray-ace, but that is more complex). That’s it. That’s all it means.

It DOES NOT mean asexual people don’t want sex. It DOES NOT mean asexual people are uncomfortable with sex. It DOES NOT mean asexual people have no sexual drive. All of these things are possible, yes, and many ace and allo people experience them, but they are NOT implicitly tied to the basic definition of asexuality in all asexual people. Asexuality is the lack of attraction to any gender. That’s it. It is in no way implicitly connected to sexual drive or sex repulsion.

Many asexual people dont like or want sex. That’s fine and good and those people have every right to feel that way and express that, and it very well may be an offshoot of their asexuality. But just as all pansexual people dont implicitly constantly want sex, all asexual people dont implicitly NOT want to have sex. Feelings about sex correlate with sexuality, but ARE NOT implicit “symptoms”, for lack of a better word.

I just feel that this needs to be said, because if there’s one thing allosexual people tend to be bad at, it’s actually listening to what ace people say about asexuality.

It’s not about sex drive. It’s about attraction. Hope that clears things up.


so sometimes im w my famliy and someones like “oh yeah they listen to kpop” and im like “yeah the music i listen to isnt in english woopdeedoo aunt karen” and then someone in your family is like “YEAH SHE WANTS TO FUCK AN ASIAN” “YOU LIKE ASIANS RIGHT?” “LMAO U WANNA BE ASIAN”

like when i’m one who understands well enough the line of whats creepy and racist and then someone doesnt and they speak for you it’s so irritating. like dont say racist shit oN MY BEHALF. I KNOW MY GODDAMN BOUNDARIES AND PEOPLE SHOULDNT BE MADE TO FEEL LIKE OBJECTS JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT.

and like most importantly is that the poc around me do not deserve to hear that in the first place. and they dont deserve to be made to feel like objects or to be made uncomfortable or to live in a place where people say that shit. 

and then when my name is dragged into it, their list of people who see them as wierd fetishized objects just gets fucking longer and it shouldn’t be- no one should make anyone feel like that

and it pisses me off so bad because the last thing that we as a whole need is for those ideals to be spread around!!!

like the same asshats who think indian people aren’t asian are the ones saying “oh so you like asians? how about this one?” LIKE THEYRE OBJECTS.

and thye think that because i dont listen to music in english that im gonna agree with them???  thinking that i’m going to be like “oh yeah i love all the asian men please throw them at me”

like i am not afraid to ruin family dinners over this!!! i just wanna sit here and eat my dry white people turkey but i will correct you!! it’s not okay and you shouldn’t be this ignorant!! you are forty years old aunt patricia i shouldn’t have to explain this!! like its better that i listen to them than any poc bc they dont deserve that but to see the AUDACITY OF SOME PEOPLE is so frustrating BECAUSE THEYRE SO OLD ADN CRUSTY SOMEHOW EVEN WHEN THEYRE LIKE 23???

the way identity politics and standpoint epistemology just totally rejects what gets said by members of a relevant ‘marginalized group’ if it turns out whats being said contradicts perceived SJ canon (whether or not the views expressed are actually reactionary or if its like criticism of hillary clinton or appropriation-politics) is a pretty good indication that the self-narrative given that its about “listening to what marginalized people have to say” is a total facade because it turns out if what is said is different from what is supposed to be said then all the crap about “lived experiences” goes out the window and you dont ever need to think about why the person said what they did

@memekeymouse the NSFW stuff appearing even on safe-search, that’s Tumblr’s problem.
It’s not the artists. Because they’ve tagged it as NSFW (yes I went back and tagged most of them as such since you dont wish to see it..). And Tumblr for some reason still shows them. You should be directing this towards Tumblr, not artists who draw yaoi and Mpreg. Also Im not drawing these because of a fetish. Mpreg is not a fetish. Its a thing thats literally IN japan. Same goes for yoai.. A uke cuter and submissive one and a seme is the more dominate one in the relationship. I can name a few shippings that have all of what you’re trying to go against me in it.

Meta Knight X Kirby
Shadow X Sonic
Mario X Luigi (yes people ship that..dunno why…)

Villager X Toon Link
Edgeworth X Phoenix
Zero X Megaman
Descole X Layton
Layton X Luke
Ness X Lucas
Claus X Ninten
Red X Blue (Pokemon)
Gary X Ash
Yurii and his seme (forgot his name but its from Yurii on ice)
Ganon X Link
Dark Link X Link
Chara X Frisk (can be identified as any gender but it still counts)
Vegeta X Goku
Trunks X Goten Broly X Trunks

Need I go on? Because there is a ton more.

“Yaoi” in of itself is NOT pornographic (in some cases there is but mostly there isnt). It’s simply just what gay relationships in manga/anime are called. If you’re going to be bashing people for having ships and calling it what its SUPPOSED to be called in anime, you shouldn’t be allowed to have ships yourself. You need to realise that YAOI, UKES, SEMES, AND MPREG ARE NOT FETISHES! And its NOT illegal! However, you act like Im committing murder. So why does that make such a big issue with you?? And SIN can literally be ANYTHING. Look i get where you’re coming from. But you had no damn right to post any of that stuff! You didn’t even try to come to me nicely! My drawings aren’t the problem. It’s certain people in fandoms. Like you.
And as for anything related to sin, it happens in every fandom. EVERY. FANDOM. Nobody said that gay ships were “sinful”. It refers to NSFW or suggestive content. Yaoi LITERALLY MEANS GAY. AND YURI MEANS LESBIAN. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT’S SEXUAL OR NOT! If anybody is in the wrong, it’s you. I’m not physically harming anybody. I’m not insulting anyone. I know you didnt mean to hurt me but you did. Once again. You could’ve just told me privately.. And nicely that i had offended you. But no. You decided to make me look like the bad guy here! You judged me by my art first and not me as a person! Im literally one of the nicest people that you will ever meet…!! I have no hatred towards you, because I’m not like that. I just can’t bring myself to hate anybody. But that doesn’t mean that I will tolerate hurtful comments.
And the last time I had checked, this was my blog. Not yours. I don’t just go around telling people what to post on their blog or anything. And on the subject of MPreg, how does that automatically mean that I hate women and trans? happen to be female.
I love all genders equally, and non-binary people. Saying that I hate women and trans people just because I draw something related to Mpreg makes absolutely no sense. So apparently everyone who is okay with mpreg hates them right? We don’t.
Anyways, everyone. Regardless of what others think of what you like or don’t like, don’t listen to them. Especially if they’re hurtful. So please, don’t complain about something that isn’t that big of a problem. Especially here. And most people here ARE in fact okay with yoai, ukes, semes, and mpreg. Like @livewiregoth @asksecurityofficermitchellandco @bluehatchingrooster @thecurseddoll and many more. As a side note, that Skype screenshot that you were talking about was a crack roleplay. That means it’s used for HUMOUR. There’s something called tag blacklisting, so you won’t have to see anything with certain tags. I have the same right to ship and draw what I please just as you and everyone else do, regardless of what anyone says. If you dont like it then oh well. Maybe you can take something from this and not post hurtful things like that again.

Also. @mickeyofficialtwitteraccount had wanted to say this to you for a while now.

“Listen here ya lil shit; its none of your business what someone else does on their blog. Oh, your worried about offending gay people? I’m only attracted to people who identify as female in any way and I myself am a female, but it doesn’t offend me. Its just a tag. There’s no need to attack someone over this. You should be ashamed of yourself! You didn’t even try asking nicely first!”

Also if I receive anon hate for this. There are many ways for me to deal with a coward hiding behind a mask…

necruse  asked:

may I ask your opinion on weaboos?

Unnecessary name calling.

Many people in Japan, especially teens and children, do the exact same things Americans get made fun of for.

They wear clothes with english on it without knowing what the shirt says

They watch english music videos and obsess about shows made in America (powerpuff girls, disney movies, atla, etc)

Many who cannot speak english use random english words in Japanese sentences in an attempt to sound like they can speak the language

A lot of teens and young adults think that America is like it is in the movies, where the US is either one big New York City, or one big Texas.

They sing American Music aloud and listen to it, even if they dont understand it.

Many people here who dont even like American food will eat it because it is cool.

There isnt anything to be embarassed about. Go enjoy Japanese stuff. Japan is pretty cool.
