i understand. you found paradise in tumblr. you had some good posts, you made a good blog, the blacklist protected you and the tags were plentiful. you didn’t need a friend like me. but now you come to me and you say “outofcontextarthur, they’re not monkeys, muffy was a hippo”. but you don’t ask with respect. you don’t offer friendship. you don’t even think to call me godfather. instead, you come into my blog on the day my daughter is to be married and y

i need to say something & i need it to be heard

i need bi girls to know that they are valid & still apart of the lgbt+ community when they’re dating/married to/in love with a boy

i need bi boys to know that they are valid & still apart of the lgbt+ community when they’re dating/married to/in love with a girl

because it’s hard to wrap your mind around. take it from me. i figured out i was bi ten months ago. long story short, i saw a very attractive boy & i realized “damn, all this time i’ve been repressing my feelings, repressing that side of my sexuality” and the reason i had, as i just recently discovered, is because of this toxic mentality of the world that’s this: if you’re dating someone of the opposite sex/gender, you’re straight.

which, of course, is not true at all. it’s bi/pan erasure & it’s terrible. but as a bi, i’m constantly told by the general public that i have to “choose a side” and if the side i choose is marrying a boy, then i was just faking it, i’m “not really lgbt+”

the worst part, is that i, & i’m sure many bi kids, have the same mentality. it’s like when a gay person has internalized homophobia. sometimes i have internalized biphobia. i’ll have a feeling for a boy, & ill automatically push it down, ill think “no, you can’t do this” & that’s not good.

i want to be able to love whoever i love, whether it be a girl or boy. i don’t remember exactly where i was going with this post but i want to say this:

to any bi/pan kid out there, you are valid. you are still part of the lgbt+ community, even if you end up dating/marrying/falling in love with someone of the opposite sex/gender. i understand if you don’t believe this. i’m still struggling with believing this myself. but we have to be able to break out of that mentality & realize we are valid.

A guy I grew up with asked me "how can you have int'l women's day if gender is a social construct?" I was upset by the question mostly because I was embarrassed of how I didn't know how to reply. Maybe it's a stupid question, but clearly there's a genuine lack of understanding on my end and I'm so bummed about that because I thought I understood sex v gender v ?? Help!

while created by society, social constructs are still very real & have real influence over our daily lives. money, marriage, beauty even stop lights are all social constructs but I’m pretty sure you can’t just run a red light and use “it’s just a social construct!” as your defense. yes gender is socially constructed, it still plays a role in how we are treated & perceived by the world around us.

Getting all As all the time?

I know that I kind of already talked about this in my overrated first year advice post but I seriously want to put this message out there again. 

You do not need to get all As on every assignment for every class. 

I don’t even know how that would be possible, without putting yourself under unbelievable amounts of stress. 

I see these posts specifically targeted at high school students, which is even more problematic in my mind. High school should not be a time when you study for hours every day without doing much else. High school isn’t all about resume building, but also about having fun and making friends and good memories. There are a few reasons that I specifically think this idea is bad: 

  1. Universities don’t necessarily require you to have all As. A lot of universities don’t even look at your grades until certain years, or only look at certain classes. If you’re in grade 9, you should focus on building study skills while having fun, rather than living to make all As. Also, showing that you got a bad mark in grade 11 and then bumped it up to a much better one in grade 12 looks great on an application just as much as all As does. 
  2. If you are aiming for extremely prestigious schools, you need more than grades. If making straight As is your goal because you want to go to Harvard, you also need to have some extra-curriculars and other things on your resume. I don’t know how many stories I’ve read over the years of people who had a 4.0 and didn’t get in because all they did was school, while others will a 3.5 got in based on their amazing resume.
  3. Telling students that they should not settle for anything less than an A tells them that studying needs to be their top priority always. When I was in high school (even grade 9), one of my main priorities was work. Other people want to focus on sports, that they probably won’t be able to play in university. Some people need to focus on hobbies that cultivate their mind and make them happy, rather than putting so much pressure to get all As. I think it is a very privileged viewpoint, in a way, to say that school needs to come before anything else. Only certain people can afford to think that way. 
  4. If you settle for nothing less than all As in high school, university might hit you like a ton of bricks. I don’t know very many people who got all As in their first semester of uni. I don’t know anyone who got all As on all of their assignments. I know some people who didn’t get a single A. At my school, when you hand in an essay, an A means it is perfect and has absolutely no flaws to speak of, so your chances of getting an A are no so high in first year. I had on TA who refused to give out As on any assignment. If your assignment was perfect, you got an 80, which is a B. 

Very literally, a C is average. It is the middle of the range of marks you can get. A is not average. 

I am in no way telling high school students or students in general that they shouldn’t strive for good marks. Or that they shouldn’t consider their education as a gift, and work hard for it. And I understand that for some kids, their parents tell them that they need to get all As and are under immense pressure at home to do so. But telling people that anything less than an A is unacceptable and that their top priority in life should be making straight As all the time, to no end? I do not support that.

I have a few things to say. First off, I love your work. The level of skill and effort you put into your animations is amazing. Sometimes the simplest of design can become something incredible. Second, I once made something for you, but you didn't acknowledge it. I tagged you twice and you still didn't reblog it. I don't understand why when I work so hard on something and it is rejected without explanation. Simply say why you didn't show it and I would be satisfied.

Uh thankks for the compliment!

And. I was probably busy… I don’t exactly go through my notifications one by one. I check the #glitchtale tag here and there but… is not enough

Even tho I do my best and put all my effort to check out all the cool pics you do for me I’d always end up missing a couple

I’m sorry I can’t keep up with all your fanart guys. I really am.

No offence, but I feel as if in this chapter, the author got tired of this entire ark in general, as the entire situation was solved ridiculously fast. Now, I don't really understand Japanese, so this may not be accurate. But from what I see, both highly powerful opponents were ridiculously quickly subdued, and somehow Fitzgerald decided to side with the Mafia and the ADA for no reason. We didn't even get to know Fyodor's ability yet, and he's already defeated.


I, too, was disappointed in this chapter, but after collecting my thoughts, I decided that it wasn’t a bad way of ending this arc, if this indeed is the end. Sure it may have looked abrupt, but it could have been worse… Or so I like to tell myself.

(Warning: I try my best to be unbiased and objective but this may read like a lot of whining. Only proceed if you’re fine with that.)

The good:
Akutagawa’s promise to Atsushi; appearance of the rest of ADA and Port Mafia; Fitzgerald saving the day; Ango and his crew appearing; that not-so-subtle nod to Odasaku in the end

The “I don’t have much of a good or a bad opinion on this”:
Shin soukoku new combo move;  Chuuya still in the book

The bad:
Quick resolution to the arc; implied lobotomy(!?); Dazai and his keikaku doori antics again; strange sense of déjà vu since they used practically same buildup as the last arc, but now it’s the remix version


First of all, I’ll just have to throw out my wildest (not really) theory out here: Fyodor is still the “final boss”. Come on, he gets the moniker “The Demon” and gets jailed off like that? No, no. It doesn’t make sense at all, at least to me. So my guess is that Agatha and the Order of the Clock Tower will swoop in to try and mess with the Agency, but when they’re on the verge of defeat, Fyodor steps in and uses this chance to strike ADA for himself. So uh Guild Arc 2.0. Or something along those lines. This could’ve been a test drive. Or he could have other Rats in Russia waiting for orders in case there’s a Phase II. Call me optimistic, but that’s what I would like to believe.

We jailbreak from Azkaban and invade Ministry of Magic now.

There really isn’t much to say about Dazai proving himself a formidable chessmaster again, other than I called it on an earlier ask. I just hope I’m not the only one tired of him being right all the damn time. No one can be that all-seeing…

i'm not good at asking about ships but why komaeda has an crush on hinata is it because of hinata trying understanding him even though nanami in the end understanded him too or because how hinata treats komaeda I think hinata wasn't really nice to him in SDR2 hinata was cold with him somehow, i didn't understand the cause tbh

MAN I’M SURE I’VE ALREADY ANSWERED SOMETHING LIKE THAT BUT MY TUMBLR IS SO NOT ORGANIZED FMS.

Anyway, you are basically asking me how someone starts to have feelings for someone else and that’s really complicated even with average people in real life, so with someone like Komaeda, it’s even more ‘?’.

Until chapter 4, Komaeda allows his feelings to develop for Hinata under the assumption he is an Ultimate. And not even a ‘normal’ Ultimate, someone even more interesting because he doesn’t know about his talent ( and Komaeda claims that it’s probably something amazing, better than anyone else, which also makes him so excited when he gets the files in chapter 4 ), but also because he is the one who manages to create Hope during the trials. It’s pretty obvious by trial 3 that he really tries to work in priority with Hinata, because he understands that he is the one who is going to stand up against the killer - against despair.

I’m not saying these are the only things that factor. Maybe Komaeda likes some traits of Hinata’s personnalities ( he does ), maybe he likes how he looks ( never confirmed as far as I know ), it’s just that these consideration fly over his head for the longest fucking time because it has nothing to do with Hinata being an Ultimate.

The thing is that… it’s not a crush ? Not a conscious one, anyway, because Komaeda loves Ultimates, and he likes Hinata a little more, but it’s never really about Hinata as a person. Even at the end of his FTE, he starts to be confused about his own feelings but is like ‘oh, no, I actually like your HOPE’. Because that’s the only thing that matter, isn’t it ?

Which also why Hinata treating him coldly doesn’t really matter, because if he is an Ultimate, then it makes sense that he thinks he is better than Komaeda. I would say it’s actually a lot easier to deal with for him than if he was overly-friendly and nice. Hinata trying to understand Komaeda is more about Hinata’s side of the relationship than Komaeda’s ( I’m also very confused by the idea that Nanami understands Komaeda at some point ? When does she do that ? )

So it’s only when Hinata is revealed to not be an Ultimate, and that Komaeda realizes that he still has feelings for him, that his ‘crush’ appears. I mean I say crush but that sounds so nice and harmless when it’s also at the same moment that he decides to kill himself and everyone else including Hinata so, yeaaaah.

Hey! Since it's the end of the season, I just wanted to thank you both for all the work you've done! This was my first season watching skating with the online community (I didn't even know it existed until now!) and all your guides and streaming posts were incredibly helpful. Thank you so much for being so dedicated to helping everyone better understand the sport. Wishing you the best in the offseason! 💜 (By the way, you both are incredible gif makers :) Thanks for that too!)

Thank you so much, anon, and thank you to all our followers who have supported us! It honestly means a lot to us to get messages saying that our blog has helped you enjoy and learn about skating. It’s been an absolute whirlwind of a season. We’re glad so many of you have discovered and fallen in love with skating and want to learn more about it! Some of the questions and discussions here have helped us learn more about skating too. Here’s to many more incredible seasons in the future!

The blog will be a bit quieter during the off season, but we’ll be back - and there are plans to make a twitter account for SYWTWFS as well, so look out for that as it gets closer to the new season!

Two years ago 46 women came forward about surviving sexual assault at the hands of Bill Cosby. Today, Andrea Constand's case ended in a mistrial. Literally fuck the whole system. This is why women don't want to report. This is why I didn't report.When will men understand?? We are not on equal footing. You have so much power over us. You can rape us and almost every single time get off scotch free, become president even. I am so exhausted.

It wouldn’t matter if 50 thousand women came forward. Evidence and proof beyond a reasonable doubt are the only things that matter. Now I’m not saying he didn’t do what he’s accused of, but the presumption of innocence is pivotal to a fair and just legal system. This shouldn’t convince women not to come forward. Instead it should show them the importance of coming forward as soon as possible so that evidence of the crime can be collected. This case isn’t proof of legal inequality. Sorry.

I don't understand why people say that cc is homophobic because she didn't give Malec a happy ending since Magnus in the books is still immortal. Like, do they realize that Magnus is immortal in the show too? And I doubt Alec will become immortal as well or something like that

me either?? they already have a happy ending, even though magnus will be on his own and grieve, he’ll still remember the love that he and alec had? also, not giving alec immortality etc isn’t homophobia, it’s just an example of something incredibly tough that couples have to go through. not every thing is sunshine and rainbows, and malec have their own amazing relationship and lives atm without making magnus mortal and leaving max on his own/making alec immortal and losing their child. this same exact situation happened to tessa and will, yet people are still calling the malec situation oppressive. people are immortal sharon (in tsc), get over it.

also people seem to be under the impression that magnus or alec are suddenly and magically change their mortality in the show- it’s an incredibly important decision for magnus and alec and shouldn’t be for the fans to decide/expect. if cc was homophobic, why would she create alec and magnus in the first place? why go through all that time and effort to create characters and have them turned down because they’re lgbt and the story was written in 2005?

it honestly irks me so much when people do that thing where they think they know the characters better than the author- sorry buddy, but you’re not the one who literally created them out of thin air.

anonymous asked:

I'm probably not going to be able to say this in one ask, so I'll number them. I became aware of Kaylor and Taylor being gay sometime before the breakup with Calgon Hubcap, around the time she went Bleachella. Before that, I always thought Taylor looked awkward around guys, but I didn't understand why until I read KaylorNation's masterposts. I fell down the rabbit hole and became a believer quickly. I saw the pics of 2014 Kaylor, and it's obvious they were giddy in love. Then came 2015 ... (1)

which was obviously a Kaylor desert and extremely painful all around. Next was the break-up with HC and the embarrassing stunt with Hiddy. Then it seems like there was a Kaylor renaissance of sorts until the end of October and the Drake party. After that, mostly desert again, even for Taylor’s birthday. Besides the fact Karlie hasn’t let go of Josh even thought the stunt is way past its sell-by date and hurting her image, it seems like something is off with Kaylor. Tay has been MIA … (2)

and Karlie has been globe-trotting, but even when we were getting Kaylor pics last fall (like the Eliot concert and Drake party), it’s not the same exuberant joy they had in 2014. Of course, the relationship would have matured by now, so I understand it may not be as giddy as the first months, and it may never be again. And I blame Kissgate and Taylor’s need to stunt, and I guess I’m in mourning because I don’t think we’ll ever see that kind of pure exuberant Kaylor love again. (3)


I don’t think it’s gone. It may have matured but they’re still very much in love. Remember Taylor did fly straight from her shoot in London to get some time in New York with Karlie. Remember they’re still closeted. Hopefully Karlie will publicly cut Josh loose very soon (Which means it should have been done months ago Kloss. smh). I think Taylor could be slowly preparing the way for a glass closet in the next era. Maybe a coming out. She doesn’t seem like she has many fucks left to give.

I am that anon from the ask you said you didn't understand: basically my friend was blabbering on how much she thinks Naruto and Sasuke are canon gay for each other so I just shoved Naruto Shippuden: The Last in her face and told her to watch it and then tell me Naruto is gay

You’re right. Naruto isn’t gay.

Naruto isn’t gay, He has never been gay. He never will be gay. The evidence is too clear. It’s impossible for him to be gay. You know why?

Because he’s bi

I’m glad we share the same views on this!

Even if the only way he ended up with Hinata was because he was forced to go through her memories and was burdened with guilt over how he never returned her feelings.

And even if we look at the Shippuden, when Hinata confessed her feelings to Naruto. Naruto spent his time staying up all night thinking about Sasuke. Like. That happened. His thoughts were on Sasuke, not Hinata. At all. Like, Wow. What a straight thing to do. He’s totally straight when you spend hours and hours up at night thinking about your buddy and wishing they’d return to you. Wooooooooooow.

So I’ll shove Naruto, Naruto Shippuden and Naruto: Bonds in your face.

But tell your friend to hit me up because they sound like my kind of person, you know, a person with logic and common sense?

anonymous asked:

I figure most fans can agree that the game tells us rather than shows us that Noct & Luna are [Supposed To Be] in love (unless you don't, that's cool too) & it makes that 2nd end-credit scene sit really odd for me since all of the emotional weight is really with the bros not with Noct & Luna's relationship & I feel they didn't earn it, you know? & tbh sometimes I'm just kinda bummed Noct wasn't fishing or doing something fun, they're just /sitting/ & Luna doesn't even get a chair. Thoughts?

Yeah, I’m a fan that agrees that Luna and Noctis are a little bit odd, considering that they’re such an odd dynamic compared to the natural relationship of some of the others characters (particularly Noctis and the boys). It’s understandable in that sense too, considering that Noctis and Luna only were able to communicate through a book for 12 years, I think? It’s a little bit of an odd thing, since these two should honestly have a genuinely beautiful relationship – and they most certainly could. But the way the game handled these two was kind of a bummer, to be honest. There could have been alot of potential with it if they handled it a bit better.

But I can also see how Noctis and Luna remain canon, too. Like, they managed to keep in contact through a book for twelve years, and it seems kinda like ‘Eeeh. It’s a book.’ But think of it this way too: the book is kinda like a letter from a friend – correspondence of lovers and allies over years upon years. It’s almost like being able to talk to someone every day or when you can, see their messages pop up in your inbox or mailbox, and realizing that just because you don’t see this person, you know they exist. Their voice can be imagined through the letters sent to you. Their recollection, their thoughts, their experiences. These two would send letters and notes to each other in books for twelve years until the fateful day where they would one day be married – lovers finally having the moment to potentially reunite after a twelve year friendship that perhaps blossomed into something more.

Just because you don’t see a face in person doesn’t mean that you’ve lost the ability to love them or care about them, you know? In older days, soldiers and lovers would exchange letters to one another, poets and muses share stories and tales – in a way, Noctis and Luna are similar. The thought of waiting eagerly for a letter or note from someone you care for, the little exchanges that feel restricted and forgotten, it’s almost enlightening and heartwarming to receive a message from someone you were so close to and still want to be close to.

In a way, it’s like the cyber conversations people have with each other on the internet. You wait eagerly for a message for someone you may or may not have met before or in a long time, but you still want to talk to them, to see them, because despite not seeing their face unless through pictures or drawings, you still don’t really lose your friendship with them. It’s just as if you were talking to them in person, just not face-to-face unfortunately.

Perhaps not as fast as being able to send a message or post a note with the utmost of speed, but they still managed to keep in touch through the book. Like, there’s the whole ‘Why not just call?’ And the justification is that Lucis is far more technically advanced than Tenebrae was, restricting technological communication. But it’s also the fact that these two were probably so young before they could use phones or other means of communication too. The notebook worked, so why not stick with it? But I digress on that. Despite it not being fast, they still managed to talk, tell each other their stories, and acted as if it were just like writing to a friend and love, a message you eagerly wait for that, when it arrives, it immediately brightens your day and brings a smile to your face.

The unfortunate thing about all of these thoughts is that we never really got to see the moments where Lunafreya would send Noctis notes and maybe little doodles about how her training as Oracle is going or the messages and pictures Noctis would send to Lunafreya about how he’s been handling school and about the new friend he made in high school. The little messages and interactions that mean the whole world to the two until one day, when Niflheim’s occupation would end, the two can finally meet in person and tell each other all that they talked about in person finally.

So yeah, I’m a little bummed out about the whole Noctis/Luna dynamic never really was handled that well, but I still don’t write out the potential that the relationship has either. I may have other ships I prefer, but I still like Noctis and Luna as a ship too. There’s a charm about the ‘letters from a lover’ trope that I really like~

Yes and by the end of the night Eliza is wondering how Kara doesn't know she's in love with Lena. Oops lol but seriously I didn't even ship supercorp but it's clearly canon. Like I don't even understand how mon-el still exists at this point.

Eliza gives Kara plenty of opportunities to come out like she did for Alex. Alex didn’t notice the first ten ways Eliza opened it up for Alex to just slide in it, but she knows her girls.

And Lena is fucking charming. Between Lena and Maggie, Eliza can’t stop smiling. She hasn’t opened a door the entire time. She can’t pour herself a glass of wine. The compliments are flying everywhere. She had two people that are enthralled in the tails of her work, one for scientific reasons, and one for more practical applications.

Then Lena starts talking science and Alex is impressed. Then Maggie joins in (because dude, science division), then Kara kind of shows some skill (that surprises Lena). Then they’re all having this insane think tank around Kara’s kitchen table. And Maggie gets lost a big, but she knows enough to follow the train even if she doesn’t know exactly where it’s going, but when it comes to building models there is no one on Maggie’s level.

Suddenly, it’s three am and they have just finished a second model for some kind of world changing device made out of rinsed take-out boxes with reams of calculations on every flat surface.

Oh my god this is the show I want. Five women changing the world with science.

This is the anon with the grandma who is kinda crazy. I confronted her again and even let her read the poem you suggested (I had to translate it but she read it) today she came to me to say that the only reason she told my mom those lies was because she assumed the reason I don't like sex is because I was raped and just didn't want to tell anyonr. I had to explain to what asexuality is and what it isnt. By the end of our talk, even though she didn't completely understand she understood enough.

Even though I’ll never forgive her for what she did, she said she was only doing it for my own good and she apologized. I told my mom what was happening and my grandma apologized to my mom too. Now my mom is like really pissed at her and is not letting her stay with us anymore. Thanks for your advice and the poem, they really helped.


i’m glad there’s some resolution to this, but i’m even more happy i could have helped. stay safe <3
