everything men need to know about women

Alright guys so I’ve seen something happening over and over again on posts about Wonder Woman and Gal Gadot and I am caving and making an entire post about it.

This has to do with claims that she is a Zionist and that she’s an awful human being because she served in the IDF (the Israeli Army) and yada yada.

FIRST OF ALL: Serving in the Israeli military is required of all citizens. She served for 2 years as a combat TRAINER. She was badass enough to be a combat trainer in one of the most deadly armed forces in the world (these are the people who created Krav Maga, okay?) and she did not engage in active combat. She killed no one. Her service was mandatory and after she got out, she went to law school because she is very passionate about justice and social issues. The most noteworthy thing about her views on her time in the military is that she says quite frequently that she wishes no country had the need for a military. She is very much a proponent of peace.

As for the Zionism claims… there you get into the debate of what Zionism actually means. Does it automatically mean you are anti-Palestinian, or does it simply mean you believe in the Jewish state of Israel? I’ll let you decide but…

Here is what I do know about Gal: She is an Israeli. She was born and raised there. She believes her people have a right to their homeland because they, like her, were born and raised there. I have seen NOTHING of her saying anything hateful about Palestinians. You can argue about history all you like but the important thing is actually THE PEOPLE. The moment we side with a government over people is the moment we lose. Most people alive today in that area were born and raised there and so it IS THEIR HOME, regardless of them being Israeli or Palestinian. It is home to them both. (Again, not arguing the HISTORY of the people. But the actual people who are alive there today.) The goal should not be to take sides with either government, but to hope that the people themselves can coexist peacefully and happily. That is what Gal believes in. She wants the conflict to stop and for peace to be achieved. Just because she is a proud Israeli and a proud Jew does not mean she is automatically anti-Palestinian or anything else. Personally I think it is amazing and beautiful that an Israeli Jewish woman is portraying Wonder Woman, one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. 

Other things about Gal? She is most proud of being a mother to a 4-year-old little girl named Alma. Her daughter loves princesses but Gal says Alma has told her that princesses seem weak and that they always need a prince to save them. Gal said that broke her heart because she wants her daughter to grow up knowing that women are amazing and can do anything, and so can she. So being Wonder Woman has come at the perfect time for her because her daughter is watching her every move and she says Wonder Woman embodies everything that is wonderful about women. Not only is she strong and brave and fierce… she is compassionate and kind and intelligent. Gal says she hopes women AND MEN will see Diana/Wonder Woman and understand and appreciate all the complexities of being a woman and how powerful we are just by being ourselves. She’s also a real goofball and loves to joke around and dance on set. AND she gained… wait for it… 17 lbs of muscle for the role! That is INSANE! Not to mention that I’ve never heard anyone more coherently understand the true nature of Diana the way Gal does. She understands that the best thing about Wonder Woman is how truly GOOD she is… how much she cares and believes in mankind, and yet that compassion does not undermine her strength and power. Instead it enhances it. She really GETS the character and that’s why I’m so excited to see her portrayal.

So yeah… can we please stop blindly hating on her because someone somewhere made some claim and we think it makes us smart and politically superior to believe it and support it? It doesn’t. It just makes you look like a weak-minded jerk. Do your own research. This goes for other things as well. Don’t jump on hate trains just because you want to seem cool or smart.

GAL GADOT IS AMAZING AND IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME WONDER WOMAN! I leave you with this gif of her being adorable on set of BvS.

Important to the Medblr and Nurblr community - as well as the other hardworking women who are both a mother and a professional.

You don’t have to feel guilty about pursuing your passion while raising a family.

Batman vs Superman was over two hours of two men bickering over who has the biggest brooding cock-I mean, who has the better method of "saving" people and whether or not it's ok for Batman to beat and brand criminals without regarding the fact that not everyone's as wealthy and privileged as his morally upright ass and for Superman to ignore the fact that not everyone's as indestructible as him, meanwhile Wonder Woman over here...

Ok.

Wonder Woman was vastly superior to bvs for two reasons.

-Wonder Woman is actually a likable lady and an idealistic believable super hero who doesn’t spend her entire moving thinking about how she COULD help people.

She charges in, headfirst, wanting to help people she doesn’t even KNOW because she wants to protect the people who’re dying.

-and Wonder Woman was just so much more subtle and less pretentious about its message.

Seriously.

Let’s talk.

Wonder Woman’s CHARACTER is not that she’s cold and heartless and…well, masculine.

She doesn’t EMULATE men.

She doesn’t need to act like a man to be strong.

She coos at a baby and kisses Chris Pine and doesn’t spend the entire movie ragging on women.

She dresses and acts feminine, and embodies kindness, grace, beauty, everything “feminine.”

And she’s also strong as fucking hell.

That is Wonder Woman.

She’s a good person.

She’s not some cold warrior goddess, an untouchable female shaped ideal.

She’s GENUINELY KIND.

She sees people suffering in the trenches and her first thought it, stop what we’re doing, we gotta help.

Chris pine and all of his men?

They’ve seen all of this.

They’ve hardened themselves to the horrors of war and accepted them as inevitable.

But Diana, new to the cruelty of the human world, is disgusted and she asks what’s wrong with you?

What is wrong with us?

We have accepted casualties. We have accepted pain.

We have excused suffering because we told ourselves long ago that we couldn’t do anything about it.

But Diana?

She does not accept that.

She fights, yes. She’s ferocious and she, unlike Batman, doesn’t have a compulsion against killing.

She was raised by warrior women, I mean come on.

But who does she fight for?

The women and children who did nothing wrong.

The injured, hopeless men fighting a war to end all wars.

The entire movie was lovely because all of Diana’s bewilderment at the way humans live was incredible.

She’s shocked at how dirty London is.

She’s not impressed by sex and she’s not impressed by war.

She thinks sexism is strange.

But she doesn’t like, rag on it, because Diana is literally so above it that she just wryly questions it at times.

Like I don’t care what all the whiny fanboys say.

There’s not an overt feminist message in this movie.

There’s no “men are so weak.”

There’s “men are corruptible” but as we see, Diana sees them as worth saving in the end, if only to fulfill her own ideals…

Which is feminist as fuck, I guess, because Diana doesn’t defend men because it’s her job.

She defends them because it’s her decision. Her morality. Her duty.

But the feminism in the movie comes from the fact that she’s so kind.

She breaks down when realizing that Ares isn’t behind it all, that MEN are the ones who are cruel to one another.

She sees the war and it’s only senseless violence to her.

All of the people she wants to help are the victims, and it’s clear cut, to her, who’s bad and who’s not.

But Chris Pine helps her realize that humans aren’t so clear cut.

And so even though she was disgusted by human actions, she still wanted to help the people in need.

I absolutely adore the scene where she’s charging across a battle field to pave the way to the town.

First off, it was so badass watching her knock aside artillery like it was nothing as the men cowered in the pits.

Second, SHE SAW THAT PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING AND SHE DIDNT CALCULATE.

She didn’t do a Batman, where she looked at the risks vs the benefits vs the needs of the many and the few.

She just charged in and did what she could.

Chris Pine told her she couldn’t do anything except help him with his plan, in order to stop the war and save them indirectly.

But Diana is a true warrior with the heart of a lion, man.

She helped them directly, with no nonsense, no politicizing, no planning, just action.

At the end she says love will save humanity?

That’s the kind of feminism Wonder Woman was embodying.

Wonder Woman wasn’t this lone independent operator who sneers at men who try to involve themselves in her business.

She was helped and supported by men, but it was clear that she was the star, the true hero who brought them and their plans together but also gave them a new hope, a new heart.

They were jaded by helplessness and mortal frustration, forced to fight to stand stills and accept human deaths.

She came and showed them something miraculous and wonderful: her power.

But not used to beat someone’s head in with a fucking sink.

Used to do good.

To fight for her morals, which aren’t corrupted by the human world’s greyness, not yet.

I loved this movie.

I loved this movie so much.

DC finally did good and we can stop pretending suicide squad and Batman vs superman were good.

Wonder Woman is the good DC movie.

Don’t even try to tell me BVS was better than Wonder Woman because if you genuinely believe that, either out of pride and obstinacy from all your bickering with marvel fans or out of delusional worshipping of anything DC, then I think you just like watching people beat people in slow motion and uncomfortably lofty , corporate-cut and stylized plots as interesting as watching a landscape time lapse.

Suicide squad was cut to bits by its editors, BVS suffered from some severe Snyder wanking, and justice league, I don’t know, we’ll see.

But Wonder Woman?

Best DC movie since dark knight.

God bless Patty.

I knew we needed a woman in charge to get the job done.

Now direct all sexist comments and sneering remarks about feminazis destroying your precious super hero genre with their “love” themes to my inbox where they’ll be lovingly deleted.

anonymous asked:

So in world history we're going over Spanish and American imperialism in the Philippines, and a bunch of kids keep saying how it 'helped' us. They say things like 'without Europeans, they'd still be living in the jungle' and other things of that nature.. As a filipinx, how can I address how wrong that is with them?

Good lord I’d like to recite my debate speech about how colonization fucked everything up. 

1) Colonization is the direct cause of colorism in the Philippines. 

It’s all rooted back to how the Spaniards differentiated us by putting us into categories according to skin tone. Lighter Filipinxs got better *house* jobs and darker Filipinxs got the hard outside labor. 

2) It was the genocide of our culture and writing system. 

Baybayin was the lost pre-colonial writing system before Spain. By the time Spain came, they were surprised at how we could read and write. Men and women. 

Know what that means? It was more of an egalitarian society. 

But oh no. We are just savages who lived in the jungle before the white saviors came. 

3) The Philippines has been constantly exploited for over 500 years. 

We’ve been colonized over and over and over again. Taken for our location and our resources. They made us hate our skin, hate our culture, and embrace everything that is white. 

I need to make a longer post about this cause arguments like this really piss me the fuck off cause the more I read up on this topic, the more I realize how much the root cause of racism and colorism stems from colonization. 

And the self-hate is passed down from generation to generation. You will get treated better if you’re light-skinned. Pale is beautiful. Brown is ugly.

This is something we’re told and grow up seeing and it’s all because some fucking white assholes imposed that on us. 

We barely know any of our history cause it was all wiped out and forgotten. They didn’t do shit to help us.

They exploited us.

couple of things that bugged me about that born sexy yesterday video, which imo are kind of emblematic of when white men try to dissect misogynistic and abusive tropes.

1. the infantilization of women and sexualization of children are part and parcel because they seek to blend the two into an indistinguishable figure. the video does not once make the obvious correlation to pedophilia, despite featuring A WOODY ALLEN FILM in his critique. he explicitly mentions power imbalances but doesn’t hit on the essence of this particular power imbalance, i.e. that making it acceptable to desire a woman who is childlike in nature erodes necessary boundaries of consent and age division. 

2. he says nothing about consent issues despite showcasing clip after clip of such scenarios.

3. his inclusion of race is perfunctory and brief even though, again, infantilization is hugely racialized. like, the fact that he felt he was coining a term (“born sexy yesterday”) for this trope when woc have been discussing infantilization of themselves AND white women in media for DECADES is so irritating lmfao.

4. “innocence is not sexy… experience is very sexy” is such a nasty thing to say like bruh this would all have been much easier if you had realized that sexiness is subjective and irrelevant to this conversation and that this trope is disgusting because it further blurs the lines between little girls and adult women. he spent far too long examining the psychology of why men might desire a “powerless childlike woman” because “they’re threatened by their powerful and experienced equals” and not nearly enough time acknowledging that more than one example he included was made by an abuser. is that not a tip off? does that not tell you everything you need to know about a storytelling trend? the people who make and propagate it?

African American men are the only group of men who constantly degrade and disrespect their own women. They try to make us feel ugly and worthless for being black women and then turn around and make fun of us for wearing weaves and accepting European beauty standards to feel more beautiful. I only say African American because in my experience, African and Caribbean black men tend to celebrate black beauty more and take pride in their women. I don’t know if it’s because of the slave mentality or what, but African American men really need to get it together. Black women go so hard for y'all and praise black men of all shades, but we never get the same in return. When they say “black lives matter,” they only mean black men because they don’t give a damn about us. I know this was all over the place. I’m just tired and fed up. I’m tired of people saying “it’s not about race” when literally everything is about race. I feel like we’re so beautiful and so amazing but we’re always overlooked and ignored for that white girl over there. I’m just tired…

One thing I hate about the whole “mansplaining” and treating women like they’re dumber and lesser than men thing is that we take an use women who are good at “manly” things and use them to disprove the “women are dumb” myth. But like why do you have to be super knowledgable on cars or fixing stuff to be smart in general. And then it makes you feel unintelligent when you ask questions because as a woman, you need to know everything to be considered smart. There’s no space for mistakes. I don’t know fuck all about cars or construction or sports and I’m unapologetic about it.

Topshop removes women-only changing rooms

So in response to a ‘transfemme’ complaining about not being allowed into the women’s changing rooms,one of the biggest high street fashion chains has switched its changing rooms to gender neutral.

Great. Lord knows I love getting totally naked with just a curtain separating me and a load of strange men. It’s not like women and girls have ever needed private spaces to undress or anything.
Why do women have to sacrifice everything? Why can’t there be a designated gender neutral space in addition?

I encourage anyone from the UK to write/email/tweet Topshop to tell them how this impacts you and how it will hurt their business when 50% of the population is too uncomfortable to try on clothes because they pandered to the 0.1% throwing a fit.

“A what?” Killian asked, looking as befuddled as he had when Henry had congratulated him on their Wookie prisoner gag.

“A bachelor party,” David and Henry repeated in unison.

The three most important men in Emma Swan’s life sat together at a corner booth in Granny’s discussing the plan of action for tonight.  It was the night before David would walk his baby girl down the aisle, the first rite of passage he would get to experience as Emma’s father. It was Henry’s last night before officially having a stepfather, and seeing his mother marry the love of her life. And it was Killian’s last night as a bachelor, although he didn’t quite see the importance of celebrating his single status.

“Why on earth would I celebrate being a bachelor? I’ve been a bachelor for lifetimes. I’ll be a married man tomorrow, now that is something to celebrate,” Killian exclaimed.

David’s heart swelled a little bit at the happiness that Killian exuded, knowing that this reformed pirate was going to be the absolute perfect husband for his daughter. “Well, that’s just it, a bachelor party is one last hurrah, one last celebration as a free and single man.”

“And as I said, what I truly wish to celebrate is marrying Emma. So why don’t we have an ‘I’m getting married’ party instead?”

“You want a wedding shower?” David smirked.

“Aye, I quite like the sound of that. Now, just what does a wedding shower entail?”

“Jesus Christ, Hook, it was a joke. Wedding showers are for women… for the bride to be, not the groom!” David explained, exasperation at his future son-in-law coloring his tone. The blushing groom, he thought.

“Oi, mate, no need for sarcasm,” Killian shot back. “I don’t know everything about your realm. If it is a bachelor party I must have, then so be it.”

“Alright!” Henry pumped his fist into the air. “So what’s the plan fellas?”

David’s eyes about bugged out of his head at his grandson’s assumption that he would be at the bachelor party. A celebration among men. “Whoa, Henry, I’m not so sure your mother would be on board with you being at a bachelor party.”

“Gramps, we live in Storybrooke, it’s not like there will be drugs and strippers.”

David was speechless as he tried to pick his jaw up off the floor. Why was Henry even saying the word stripper? How did he even know about strippers? And drugs? He’s growing up too quickly, David panicked, now he positively felt like a grandpa as the need to keep Henry young and innocent surged through him. When he looked at Killian, the grin he saw on the pirate’s face wasn’t what he was hoping to see. He narrowed his eyes at Hook, as the man made eye contact with him, eyes filled with mirth no less. “What are you teaching my grandson?” David asked accusingly.

“I’m a pirate, Dave, not a man whore,” Killian deadpanned. He didn’t hold it against David, it was easy to blame a pirate, especially in uncomfortable situations; like when your grandson mentions naked women. Killian tried to school his features as he was having a hard time not bursting into laughter over the prince’s outrage.

The Talk

Kind of nsfw? But not really? idek.

I’m redeeming Esther. I feel sorry for being mean to her in titanic au. Also I killed her off in another fic so I need to atone for that…. :’)


Davey hadn’t realised what was about to happen when his mother knocked on his door after dinner and requested that he put down his homework for a couple of minutes so they could have a serious conversation. Had he known that the ‘serious conversation’ she had in mind was in fact the serious conversation, he would have bolted for the door. Instead he was stuck staring at his hands in his lap whilst Esther talked to him about hormones and contraceptives and respecting women and porn not being an adequate representation of sex. He tried not to flinch every time she mentioned girls and bit his tongue to stop himself explaining that he knew porn wasn’t accurate when it came to real life but it had helped him a lot with understanding what his feelings meant and who exactly he had those feelings for.

NTAMW is scared of periods. Women are expected to know everything about how a dick works, but men will freak out if they even see an unused, wrapped tampon. My dad thinks women don't really get cramps and pain from periods and make the pain up to get out of doing stuff. I also knew a guy in my class who thought women could just 'hold it in' like urine and that tampons/pads/etc were a luxury item and not really needed. Men who aren't willing to learn about your body don't respect it.

👆

Oof okay I know lately I haven’t really been making a lot of my own posts but there was something seriously wrong about this post going around and I feel the need to comment about it.

I understand having a movement specific to women's problems. I understand feeling the need to highlight certain things as a serious issue for men or for women. Do I personally agree with it? Not really, but I can see why some people would. 

This post, though, goes beyond that. 

First issue: 

“Hey, Cis Men” 

oof. This implies… some pretty problematic stuff. First, it implies that trans men are just women which is… gross. To refer to the entire post as “men” and to only highlight “cis men” makes it pretty clear that they don’t care about the problem at hand, they care about the political movement behind it. To refer to “cis men” means that we would know which of these men are cis or trans, which is honestly pretty transphobic so let me break it down. 

-It implies all trans men are open about being trans 

and/or

-It implies all trans men are “obviously” trans 

The issue with this is that you’re now telling trans people that their comfort zones don’t matter. You’re a trans guy whos on T and who people can’t tell is trans? Well, sucks buddy, if someone confronts you with this post it’s time for you to come out to protect yourself from the horror that is mainstream identity politics. You don’t know how many times I’ve had to out myself to stop people from sending me hate messages online. It’s unnecessary, it’s stupid, and it’s a breach of my privacy, and I shouldn’t have to lay out every minority group that I’m in to gain respect for myself as an individual. 

Now my second point of why this post is… just awful, Jesus Christ…. is that they say

 “and then wishing YOU were the teenage boy being preyed upon by the adult teacher”

I really shouldn’t have to explain why this is fucked but, it looks like I do have to. 

This is obviously victim blaming. The entire post is directed towards male victims of sexual assault using the hashtag to make their struggle visible. This person pretty much just said, “oh, well, sucks for you guys because you guys wanted it anyway!”

No! They obviously didn’t! You’re literally directing this post to victims of sexual assault! How could you even have the audacity to say that?

TL;DR: What the fuck.

[One of the admins accidentally deleted the requests in our inbox but I managed to screenshot yours long before. Enjoy!]

Also the read more thing isn’t working so I’m sorry!

Pairing: Vernon x Black Female!Reader [Anyone is allowed to read this though]

Genre: Angst and Fluff

Warnings: Implied racism, colorism, just pure ignorance, cursing, and implied sex.

A/N: I just wanted to say that this request was such a pleasure to write because it hits home for a lot of black women who often go through this. Not only that but I really tried to put in a lot of the colorism and racism that goes on in so many countries such as South Korea. Things like that are no joke, racism is not a joke and dismissing black feelings and lives is not a joke but rather shows the ignorance this world has. I just wanted to bring this to light because believe it or not there is a lot of antiblackness within the K pop community. That needs to end, racism needs to end. Thank you for reading this.

[Also please do not come into our inbox with some dumb shit saying that antiblackness in the kpop community is not a thing. Because unless you’ve been a victim or have seen that shit first hand then you are not allowed to speak. If you have any questions about this topic or just to let out your feelings then our inbox is open.]

The life of an idol is a lot more delicate than you would think.

They can’t even tiptoe over the imaginary line without a consequence.

Whoever they date will also face the consequences. Their career will face the most consequences, everything they’ve built up will crumble to the ground in seconds and it’s impossible to know if they’ll be able to build it back up. So when you agreed to come on this interview you were filled with regret. These thoughts started to haunt you, but Vernon always told you not to worry about it.


“You’ll be fine,” he told you but deep down inside you both knew that he was lying, he was lying to you but you couldn’t be mad at him. No you couldn’t because Hansol has and always will be an optimistic person, he always was reassuring about the simplest things. Don’t confuse it for him being a fool however, that boy was so fucking aware of the racial issues in the world, he himself going through it. 

But he couldn’t compare that to what you’ve gone through in life. 

You looked at him, you looked at him and he looked at you and without words you both were able to speak to one another. You were not going to be fine, if anything the rest of the interview would be questions about how and why you two decided to pursue a relationship knowing the racial divide between you both. After they soaked in the fact that you were black, especially half black. Oh shit would definitely hit the fan.

“I’m scared Hansol, I don’t want to lose my shit and then they’ll call me a monkey or something. You know how crazy I can get.”

He gave you a breathy laugh, “keep calm and stay classy. If they say anything disrespectful to you then you bite back but in a classy way. You do it all the time, besides if no one can look past your skin color…then well fuck them they don’t deserve to be bothered with.”

Even with him basically lifting your spirits up a bit, you still couldn’t shake away the feeling of dread at the moment. This interview was tomorrow and thousands of people would either love you or hate you. The outcome was most likely the latter and dating an idol in one of the most successful groups this time around was not going to help your case. “That doesn’t really help me.” 

You got up off the couch and went to the bathroom locking the door behind you immediately sitting on the the toilet and burying your face in your hands. You couldn’t do this, you just fucking couldn’t. 


Maybe it was your mother’s strength that she had given you genetically or your own loyalty and desire to keep your boyfriend happy but you were sat in your seat on a Friday looking above at the television that played the recording of the interview that was taking place. “Lord don’t fail me now please.” You mumbled a few more prayers and swept your hair over your left shoulder and smoothed out your dress as your hands struggled to keep still. Fucking anxiety.

“So you all are leading towards your five year anniversary of being a group. There are obviously more privileges now that you all aren’t rookies such as dating. Your dating ban was lifted last year I believe?”

The boys all nodded, and this was it, this is where they bring up Vernon’s dating rumors with you. You were proud to be able to say that you were with the most handsome and humble man you’ve met but to some people love just didn’t cut it. “We can date now, but a lot of us don’t have the time or haven’t found the one.” Seungcheol spoke as Vernon begun to get flustered thinking about you.

“I hear that only five of you are seeing people. Jun, Vernon, Hoshi, Joshua, and Mingyu correct? How does it feel to be able to have someone by your side and how do they deal with you all being idols.”

There were multiple answers going around. Some were that their significant others were very supportive and tried to see them as many times as they could. For other such as Vernon and Jun, their own relationships were rocky and it was always a constant battle between their career or love.

“My girlfriend lives in the states so seeing her is already hard enough. It’s tough being so far from one another and then having the group, the—” He had to stop himself from mentioning some of their fans as being the cause of some of the hardships in their relationship. A lot of them didn’t like the fact that he was with someone, and now bringing her out to show the whole world—her skin color would make them hate her even more.

“It’s pretty much just distance that’s the problem.”

“Well,” the mc said smiling, “distance is no longer a problem for the moment right? Isn’t she here today with you?”

You and Hansol have this weird ability to read each other with ease. By the look on his face, the way he bit his lip and forced a smile that looked quite convincing—he was panicking and not because he didn’t want to show you off because trust and believe the man did he so badly wanted to do that. The whole thing with far from the beauty standards there…and being half Black and Korean. It made his head spin.

Staff had fixed your hair, and makeup, your usual curls now straightened without you having the strength to protest against them using a flat iron. Your wider nose had been contoured to appear softer. Last but not least they had tried to use foundation and concealer shades lighter than you actually were but both you, Hansol and Joshua had put a stop to that immediately. You weren’t broken, so they didn’t need to fix you.

One of the women whom you held multiple conversations with regarding how terrified you were about going out there because of the issues with people with darker complexions she had given you this short advice to plant into your head. If you’re on a journey, the only people who matter are the ones making sure you reach your endpoint. In other words, if their main wish is to see you be better or be happy then they mattered. If not they were nothing but gum on the sidewalk.

“This is the first time we’re seeing her. I’m a bit nervous. Tell us Vernon on a scale of one to ten how beautiful is she?”

“Nothing can measure her beauty,” Vernon spoke about you like you were a Goddess, like you were everything to him and the world needed to know that you held his heart in your hands and he was praying that one day you wouldn’t let go. “She’s amazing and I never thought I’d get the say that about someone.” Despite him being confident while speaking about you, his face went from tan to red after receiving stares from the crowd who were as surprised as you on his confession.

“God I love you Hansol.”

“You’re turning into a real man. Women make men stronger. I think everyone would like to see her now. Do you want to go get her? I think she might nervous”

He was more than okay with having you by his side in a moment that would change his career and how people see him. The boys watched Hansol get up, their own throats forming lumps as anxiety hit them all. They didn’t understand why you, Hansol and Joshua were scared for dear life but they knew that their friend was taking a risk when he decided to date you. They could see the love in Hansol’s eyes as he stared at you at times or the happiness that spread to his face as he spoke about you. All they wanted was for him to be happy.

You were biting your nails again, Hansol knew that you were definitely about to break down. “Hey, it’s going to be alright okay?” As his warm hands caressed your arms you backed away from him, your emotions so mangled up that you were afraid of lashing out at him.

“You’ll be okay, but what about me?”

“What about you? You’ll be fine darling, years from now this thing will be the past. People will get over it, in order to continue this chapter in our lives you have to come out there with me. Please, baby please.”

Again it was the love you had for him that made you ready to go through with what will be a year of hell and wanting to give up. His fans would not give you a break after they find out about you, they would not let you breathe without reminding you how Vernon could have done so much better and he could have but he chose you over everyone else. “Fuck, let’s do it.” A warm smile is what he had upon hearing your words, his heart bursting with love but his belly still holding the unknown.

He took your hand and you two started to walk towards the entrance to the stage. The audience was waiting with a curious look as it had been a few minutes since Vernon had left, even the boys were starting to get worried. There was a curtain separating you from the audience and mc, and had Vernon not quickly pulled it to the side you would have ran off to throw up.

The lights from the set almost blinded you and you felt your heart trying to escape your chest. This felt wrong, it was wrong, this was the worst thing you had to endure this year—the silence, the shock on everyone’s faces. Even disappointment from some of the younger girls. Slowly though, as Vernon had stood there with you, his hand gripping yours tightly, someone had started to clap, followed by many other who cheered for you two.

Relief.

Total fucking relief.


Although it seemed that the audience wasn’t as racist as you would have expected them, that didn’t stop the mc from commenting on the obvious difference in your skin tone from Vernon’s. It bothered you, it really did because it was the twenty-first century and people have yet to accept the fact that races were mixing and people were happy that way. You could take all of his snide comments, you had thick skin and a whole lot of experience with ignorant fuckers so this was just normal.

For Hansol it was slightly different, he too had his share of bad memories when it came to being mixed but he was the type of person who avoid confrontation and preferred to hide away even though you knew he couldn’t handle it. “Halfies always date halfies I’m guessing.” To the audience it was a joke but for you and Hansol you could hear the hatred in his voice which prompted you both to keep a straight face, you weren’t here to entertain these people.

“You date the person you like.” Hansol clapped back with a small smile on his face.

“Did girls come flocking to you in primary school? I mean- can all see that you’re clearly not Korean.”

What? You couldn’t stop your legs from bouncing as you tried so hard to bite back your tongue and to not go off on the mc. Was that man really trying to erase Vernon’s and even part of your heritage, especially on live television where he was making a fool of himself?

“I am Korean, and for your question I wasn’t the best looking-”

“Because you’re not fully Korean? But that’s okay you’re handsome now right ladies?”

Then came the cheers from the audience, the ignorant cheers and whistles as they knew nothing of what was actually happening. Or, maybe they did but they simply did not care. Lord you wish you had more strength in you today because you were so close to losing it. He placed a hand on your leg, squeezing it tightly as he was telling you to be calm, and to be very honest you didn’t want to be calm, now you wanted to be crazy. 

“Y/N have you ever tried whitening cream?”

My skin is fucking flawless, I love how my brown skin look in the sun and I don’t ever want to lower myself into your ideal standard of looking like someone threw a bag of flour at you. All you said though was, “no.” You knew what was going to come next, he would say ‘you should buy some’ and then you would nod your head and smile at him as if you weren’t going to kill him in his sleep.


“You are very beautiful, your dark skin suits you.”

“Your hair isn’t straight? Why is it like that?”

“Now that I think about it you would look better with lighter skin.“

To say that you were tired was an understatement, after having to let yourself be discriminated against for the sake of your boyfriend’s career you were drained emotionally and mentally. You felt so numb that when Hansol tried to whisper sweet things into your ear as you all rode in the car back to their dorms you sat there in silence, making him wonder if things between you and him were okay still.

You sat on the edge of his bed, taking off your shoes slowly as Hansol watched you from the doorway, closing it behind him once you looked at him. You could see the sadness on his face, the guilt and regret—he blamed himself. There was no way you was going to let him stand there and think that this was all his fault, the two of you knew that this would happen, you were ready for it. “I’m not mad at you.”

“I know.”

“I’m just so fucking tired.”

“I know.”

“Then why do you look guilty?”

He sighed, “I don’t know.” He walked over to you and knelt down, moving himself to be in between your legs as his arms wrapped around your waist and his head laid on your chest. “I’m sorry for putting you through that.” All you could hear was mumbling but you picked up on the ‘I’m sorry’.

You chuckled lightly, “I know.”

“Seungkwan is okay with sleeping with the others tonight so it’s just me and you in here. Are you hungry?”

“Oh yes, after a hard day a girl needs to eat.”

A small laugh came from him, and he was smiling with his eyes as he stared at you, his everything right now. “Pizza? I know that you haven’t eaten any non Korean foods while you were here. It’s quick and cheap too.”

Most would think that in the middle of two people speaking about food is a time where you don’t kiss them, but for you this was perfect. His head on your chest, your hands rubbing his back soothingly and his arms around you securely. You let your hands touch his face, titling his head up to you where you pressed your lips against his. “Pizza it is baby.”

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: John Watson is bisexual and it desperately needs to be canonized. It's not even speculative; ignoring the fact BBC Sherlock has gone to great lengths to demonstrate his dedication, adoration and - yes- love, in regards to Sherlock, ignoring the fact they went as far as to introduce John's ex - Sholto -, there is no denying the queer subtext of the ACD canon. Holmes and Watson were in a romantic relationship in the source material, eventually retiring together. Sherlock is demonstrated as having absolutely 0 interest in women while John is interested in women, though it seems to be in equal in measure to his interest in men. Obviously, in 1887, it was impossible to canonize a queer relationship without fear of retribution but, thankfully, that isn't something Moftiss have to worry about. Given the writing, the acting choices made by Ben C and Martin Freeman, everything about the show down to costumes and lighting and how it's shot, we know that BBC Sherlock's own John Watson is a bisexual man and it needs to be said in so many words.
take this burden - part 30

[ let me go - cake ]

(seriously. please listen to the song even if you normally don’t)

-.

The main things The Wolf prided itself on was the music and the drinks.

Considering those are the main components of nightlife, it has to stand out. 

A few times a month they had themed nights.

From 60s/70s/80s/90s to jazz, electronica, heavy metal, country, rock, alternative, rap, pop, you name it.

For the most part, Mark and Julio had free reign.

Mark had the unique talent of reading the room and could get anyone from a bachelorette party to a group of office workers winding down from a long day on the dance floor or, at the very least, nodding their head to the music.

Two years ago, with He Tian’s enthusiastic support and generous backing, started his own company.

He’d offered to stay on at the club part-time, but He Tian turned him down, choosing to pay out the ass to bring him in at his going rate a few times a week.

Mark had taken it upon himself to train Julio in whatever dark arts he must practice, so they were never without a remarkably talented dj.

A ridiculous inside joke had given each staff member and several regulars personal theme songs they’d play when they entered the building, providing it wasn’t too busy.

Jane had been given full control of the bar in the same way. She’d taken the idea and made them each a personalized drink and endless supply of unique drinks based on movies and tv shows.

His first hires had been Mark, Jane, and Annie.(who had gone on to open one of the most popular underground dance clubs in the city, again with the support and assistance of He Tian.)

They’d managed to build something unique and beautiful and he’d compensated them all very well from the beginning.

Which wasn’t necessarily a good business move.

Without Julio’s green thumb they would have shut down in a month.

He didn’t like to talk their success because he hated people that went around flaunting that shit, but he’d poured his heart and soul into those two thousand square feet.

After three years, even a slow night brought in plenty for all of them to pay rent every month.

Given the chance, he loved to talk about it. 

They all did.

The only story he didn’t happily tell was Jane’s.

-

He’d met her at a strip club during a friend’s bachelor party.

She was, by far, one of the most beautiful people He Tian had ever seen.

What really got him was her attitude towards it all.

He’d been to many, many, strip clubs in his life- it comes with the territory- and figured, at 26, he’d seen it all.

In the end, what got him wasn’t her beauty.

She was one of four girls on stage.

Her skin glistened with sweat, her hair stuck to her shoulders and chest.

There was nothing bored or forced about her performance.

She moved to the music, nothing half-assed or repetitive about it, more than once using the pole in front of her as an air guitar or microphone.

She wore a pair of lacy, bright pink, panties. 

She danced barefoot, a huge smile on her face.

To his astonishment, she had no audience.  

He moved away from his friends and gestured for her to come over when the song ended.

She’d walked to him shyly, looking at the ground and led him to one of the rooms in the back.

He sat back in the seat as she straddled his lap.

‘Be still, please.’

She’d frozen.

‘Excuse me?’

‘I don’t want a lap dance.’ He’d explained.

‘Sir, I think you might be confused-’

‘I’m not. Hear me out.’

She placed her hands on his shoulders, sitting back on thighs.

‘I’m listening.’

‘I’m opening a club…’

He paused at the disgusted look on her face.

‘What’s wrong?’

‘I’m not a fucking prostitute!’

Fuck.

‘No, no, no that is NOT what I’m trying to say.’

She leaned back further, crossing her arms across her chest.

He reached for his jacket where he’d sat it down next to him, holding it up and slowly wrapping it around her shoulders.

Skeptically, she pushed her arms through the sleeves.

‘What’s your name?’ He asked softly.

‘Jane.’

‘You can get off, Jane. I don’t want a lap dance.’

Slowly, she slid off his him, looking down at his lap, both surprised and relieved at his lack of erection.

She plopped down on the booth next to him.

‘What kind of club?’ she asked.

‘Just your average club, I suppose. Drinks, music, the usual.’

‘Right… so why me? There are four gorgeous girls out there that-’

He Tian shook his head.

‘I want you.’

‘But why?’ She pressed.

He smiled.

‘Are you happy here, Jane?’

‘Yes.’ She answered immediately.

He Tian raised his eyebrows.

‘Maybe not.’ She conceded.

Popular opinion seems to be that dancers all hate their lives and do it out of desperation, but He Tian had met many men and women talented, proud, and happy with their chosen profession. 

Hell, he’d met more happy dancers than most other professions. 

But, like literally everything, it wasn’t for everyone. 

‘I need someone to help me.’ He told her.

‘I don’t know anything about clubs, dude.’

‘I can teach you.’

‘Tell me why.’ she demanded.

He Tian searched for the right words to say as she wrapped herself in his favorite sweatshirt.

‘Honestly, I’m not entirely sure.’

She stared at him dubiously.

He had nothing else to say.

‘What would I be doing at this club?’

‘I need a bartender.’

‘I’ve never done that before.’

‘I can teach you.’

‘Just tell me why!’ She was getting frustrated.

‘You just used the pole as an air guitar.’

‘Is that part of the interviewing process?’

‘It is now.’

She suppressed a smile.

‘How much do you make right now?’ he asked.

‘Seven bucks an hour. Plus tips.’

‘I’ll pay you twelve plus any tips you make. That’s all I can afford right now.’

She tried to hide her shock.

‘Is that what you pay all your employees?’

‘I don’t have any employees yet.’

‘How do I know I can trust you?’

‘You don’t.’

Jane played with the zipper on the sweatshirt.

‘I’ll think about it.’

He Tian stood, pulling his wallet from his pocket, writing his phone number on the back of a receipt and handing her all the cash in his wallet.

She accepted the cash and paper, standing to remove the jacket.

‘Keep it. It looks  much better on you.’

He Tian smiled, leaving her alone in the small room.

-

Three days later, she slept on He Tian’s couch.

-

One week later she used a paint roller as a microphone as he painted the walls black.

-

Two weeks later she helped pick out the bar stools and tables.

-

Three weeks later she stocked the newly installed bar as He Tian used an unopened bottle of vodka to serenade her.

-

One month later she sat his friends at the bar and made them sample drinks.

-

Thirty-two days later they stood hand in hand as a line formed for their grand opening.

-

Thirty-eight days later, she stood behind the bar, serving drinks as He Tian watched with a smile.

-

Forty-six days later, He Tian gently turned down her advances and she deeply upset him by accusing him of being racist.

Seventy-three days later He Tian watched a charming young man ask her on a date.

Ninety-seven days later she came to work with a black eye.

Ninety-eight days later she cleaned aforementioned young man’s blood off his knuckles and provided him with an alibi.

One hundred and forty days later she was thrown a surprise birthday party complete with bright blue, fruity cocktails He Tian had designed just for her.

‘Janie’ is still a drink you can order at The Wolf.

Three hundred and sixty-five days later, they celebrated their first year with the unveiling of a covered, heated, patio.

Four hundred and eighty-seven later, He Tian handed her the keys to her first car after giving a speech about he couldn’t have dreamed of getting this far without her.

Eight hundred and sixty-three days later she caught the first glimpse of genuine sadness she’d seen on his face as his two best friends enjoyed the enormous party celebrating their tenth anniversary.

One thousand, two hundred, and twenty-eight days later, he disappeared with nothing but a text.

‘J, hold down the fort, I’ll be back soon.’

One thousand, two hundred, and thirty-five days later, she stood in front of the person who had finally gotten under his skin and smiled.

Best Behaviour (M)

Jungkook knew he was in trouble straight from the moment he trudged from his room with his eyes fixated on the floor. His leg shook nervously and his fingers were tapping on his thigh because at the back of his mind there was a mixture of fear and need. Pure need, to any extremes. He could hear you shuffling around in his room now, but he was desperate for you to just come out already.

He wasn’t a bad boy, especially not for his noona; sometimes Jungkook just liked to misbehave in the hopes it would leave him with red marks on his thighs and pleas leaving his lips. The little knew how to get what he wanted. Sometimes he’d like to just do as he was told – shake that man’s hand, wear his suit and tie, stop drinking soda and exchange it for some wine – so that you’d reward him later. Sometimes he’d just like the way you punished him.
