something i’m still so thankful for is the fact that skam didn’t show us people with religious beliefs having negative reactions to isak’s sexuality. sana didn’t reject isak, didn’t even think of doing so because isak being gay wasn’t a valid reason to stop being his friend, it didn’t change how she felt about him. and isak’s mom who seemed to have pretty strong religious beliefs as well also didn’t have a negative reaction, although isak thought she was going to have one. when he texts her to let her know he has a boyfriend, he expects her to be upset about it, tells her “i’m sorry if it makes you sad”. and i think at this point most of the viewers don’t expect her beautiful, loving, positive response. i know i didn’t, not because religious people all react negatively to homosexuality, but because that’s the image we’re always being fed. characters come out and their religious relatives and friends have very strong negative reactions, and they’re met with rejection
but that’s just not right. it’s not right to lead us to believe that religious beliefs and homophobia and intolerance go hand in hand. it’s not right because there are so many lgbt people who have religious beliefs. and it’s not right because religious people who are indeed intolerant and hateful aren’t because of their religion. homophobia is hatred, and as sana so rightfully said, hate doesn’t come from religion, it comes from fear
If lesbians are expected to teach themselves to love penises and gay men are expected to teach themselves to love vaginas, (re: riley j dennis) why does the idea of focusing therapy for dysphoric trans people on being taught to love their own genitalia offend so many?
When you’ve been making something for almost a year and you get to the point where you’re like “yeah I’ll probably put this out there in a couple days” it just feels kind of like aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Before you start any angst can we please have a little of Steve being all lovey dovey because of the new bond. I mean i love the angst but a little love before it? Please. I love finding pack.
I didn’t see this one until now. crackerjacks!
But of course. Angst won’t make an appearance until a ways from now. Let’s see… *checks draft* we’ve got… more smut coming, some fluff, fighting scenes, lots of fluff and confidence building, smuuuut, drama, drama and angst, more drama and angst, love and fluff, and happy ending. That’s not counting it all, but it’ll give you an idea of the order. So you’ve still got more love coming your way!
So. I need a moment to talk about this because I just saw a gifset from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon with the caption “why is he always so shook” in reference to Min Huk (x)
It’s funny, but also it breaks my heart because this boy has never had someone care for him. His mother died when he was young, he grew up abused by his father and brothers. Nobody ever treated him with care, so his entire life he learned never to expect to be treated with love and kindness. He excudes confidence and charisma, remains lighthearted and a jokester on the outside, but it’s because he’s put up walls and built a persona to protect himself and his vulnerabilities. You’ll notice he always removes himself from the world when he’s lonely and hurting. It’s his way of surviving.
That’s why he is constantly surprised and “shook” because he can’t understand why anyone would take the time to care about his feelings. There’s not only shock, but probably fear too because why would anyone care? This boy risked death to save Bong Soon without the expectation of her loving him back. Without the expectation of anything, fully accepting he could DIE. All he wanted in return was a few days of feeling somebody actually care about his well-being for once and that was after he woke up alive.
This drama is hella problematic in so many ways but Min Hyuk won’t let me rest. I can’t keep away from his character. “Min Shook” is hilarious but rips my heart out at the same time . Here ends the reason why I can’t stop watching this drama despite it’s problematic elements.
Hey what can you tell me about Green Day's show? I'm taking my sister for her first concert ever to Green Day tomorrow and we were blessed to get floor seats, so I want to k ow what to expect! Love your blog so much, it's great!!
Ooh, you’re in for the greatest night of your lives!😍 Every other concert your sister goes to will pale in comparison, I guarantee you that.
The shows are always about 2
½ - 3 hours long, the light & pyro effects on this tour are A+ and you can expect a lot of crowd participation - he will try to involve everyone in the show, meaning people in the stands and not just people on the floor. Occasionally Billie Joe will pull fans on stage to play the guitar or sing and crowdsurf, he will talk about love or something political (most of the time it’s Trump now) or other things that bother him, and make lots and lots of eye contact with people. It’s just full of energy, lots of moshing, lots of singing and yelling ♥ There will be no break, meaning they won’t leave the stage like some other artists in the middle of the set, but if you ask me, King For A Day makes up for it because they all just kind of do stupid shit and lie around on the stage 😂
@new d&d players and dungeon masters starting because of critical role, aquisitions inc, the adventure zone, etc:
hey listen. i know it’s really super easy to compare and set up expectations that your game, your DMing or your roleplaying should be like theirs. i know. it’s super easy to look at matthew mercer and feel like you’ll never be as entertaining as him or you’ll never be as good at roleplaying as the cast, or that you’ll never be as funny as the mcelroys.
but listen to me. i’m serious. they are professionals, but they’re playing with their friends. every single person brings something unique and great to a tabletop game, and if you let go of the expectation that everything needs to be perfect, everything needs to be like the podcasts you listen to or the shows you watch–
it WILL be perfect. d&d is a game where you can do whatever the fuck you want and you should do that, but realize that with these expectations are unfair to your fellow players, your dm, and most importantly yourself. sometimes it takes a while for people to get comfortable with how things are. sometimes it doesn’t. that’s ok. just enjoy your game as much as you can
