Queer Representation Gothic

  • You’re listening to playlists tagged ‘queer’ on 8tracks, they all consist of some combination of the same 20 songs. As you listen to more and more, they get shorter and shorter, eventually they are just repeating loops of same love and I kissed a girl, occasionally broken up by a mashup of the two songs. You turn off the playlists and turn on a progressive radio station, the same songs play again, and again when you go to the local co-op, everyone nods at you because they must be your favorite songs
  • You get excited because the gay and lesbian section on netflix has 6 new movies, you watch them all, half of the protagonists destroy their relationships, the other half die, the same thing happens the next year, and the next, the netflix logo makes you sad.  
  • A country radio station plays a song that might be a little bit gay, the station is boycotted, everyone who works there is boycotted, you are boycotted because you too might be a little bit gay. 
  • A character in a new tv show has had relationships with men and women, half the fans think the character is gay, half think they are straight. Straight and gay are the only valid options, no other word is thought of, nothing is labeled, not even the soup cans
  • Me: Wow the stars are beautiful tonight
  • The person next to me: Yeah they are
  • Me: Y'know what else is beautiful? And what I always want to see more of in my life?
  • Them: *blushes* What?
  • Me: Actually good representation of trans/non-binary people in the media

Props to the RWBY team for darkening Blake’s skin. It’s slight enough that it’s not like “Whoa! Sudden race change!” But it’s nice, considering how many fans headcanon her with darker skin.

As the show continues, it’s nice to see more skin variation all throughout, since, y’know, not everyone is the same exact shade of #ffeee0.

Especially with Blake being one of the four main girls. I don’t think many series would make that decision, and I’m proud of the crwby.

listen if you’re haggling over the age of consent, you’ve probably already done something wrong lmao

I was like ‘hell yeah, no work in the morning’ so I got drunk, passed out around 5am, was sleeping real good and everything and then my phone went off to remind me that I do, in fact, have to work today

if this isnt a good representation of my life as a whole idk what is

&&. out.  will i ever not be emotional about the way voltron handles shiro’s PTSD ??  no, no i will not.  because fuck if it doesn’t hit home like ??  they’re doing such a good job.  someone give them an award.

ya know what. since im already on the “talking about shit that bothers me” train i might as well bring up something else. im getting kinda cheesed off abt the current state of ut fandom’s Sans Angst. like, dont get me wrong, sans is a sad dude. dude has a lot to be sad about. and i like that! to me hes a very realistic portrayal of a depressed person that i can relate to in a way i dont see very often. but thaaaaaaat’s the shit that bothers me in fandom. the fact that i dont feel like im getting that. ppl tend to just, focus on papyrus’s potential death or timeline angst or on the more “romantic” aspects of sans’s depression in general, which is like, fine, whatever, but i want to see the gross stuff too. i want people to remember that depression has a lot of ugly aspects too and it tends to make us really, really suck at being alive. i want to see sans sitting in grillby’s for an entire day just because he cant work up the motivation to walk home. i want to see sans with every opportunity to save papyrus from being killed but just watching from the sidelines instead, because does it really matter, anyway? i want to see sans failing to pick up frisk from a playdate because he’s just too sad about nothing to leave the house but too guilty to ask for help. because like, that happens. that’s me every day (ok not the second one but you get it). so…. when i joke about like “lol sans kinda sucks” or whatever im not doing that because i dont like him or think hes a bad person. its just because like, i kinda feel like this actually good representation of my mental illness and the effects it has on my life is being glossed over or shoved away. i dunno. i need sans to be self-pitying and overwhelmed and bad at being a person in general. give me that.

taylorswift i just wanted to let you know that about two weeks ago i did a mile walk to raise money and awareness for my disability, cerebral palsy. this is a huge accomplish for me, because a mile is a very long distance for me to walk without taking breaks and it was extremely hard, i really drew inspiration from your fearless quote. “fearless is not the absence of fear. fearless is not being completely unafraid. fearless is having fears. fearless is having doubts. lots of them. fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. fearless is having faith that someday things will change” i feel like this quote is a good representation of the walk and my life in general. there’s been a lot of ups and downs, but i always keep trying. thank you for being there when things get hard. i could never put it into words how much you mean to me for that.

ALL AT ONCE - a music fueled student film

hey guys! So I know that I have been talking here and there about posting the kickstarter link for the student film I am acting in; and here it is! Here’s a bit of an explanation of what All At Once is all about from the kickstarter page:

DIRECTOR’S NOTE: My name is Jack Campise and I am a senior high school student from Columbus, Ohio. I’ve always had a passion for telling stories and have been making short films and videos for years now. Recently, I’ve been writing what I know; taking experiences from my own life to craft a larger story. That’s what I’m trying to do with this project. I want to reflect on my time spent in high school, good and bad, to shape an honest representation of that pivotal time in my life.

All At Once is a project that will act as my senior capstone project. It’s a high school short film made by high schoolers.

Synopsis: A coming-of-age story that follows Patrick and his friends as they find consolation through the music they listen to and create. The friends start a garage band (Mom Jeans), driven to be remembered for something while Patrick comes to terms with his past and learns to move on.

Now the reason we are holding this kickstarter is because we need your help to raise funds for filming the second half of the film; our director, Jack, funded everything out of pocket for the first half of the film (travel costs, equipment rental, gas money, food, etc.) and we were hoping with some help from you that we can raise the funds to help pay for the next step!

This project has been an incredible and fun experience for me; and if you could help us out by donating a little cash, we’d be SO grateful! (plus there’s so many cool rewards for donating!!!!) if you can’t donate money, just reblogging this post to get the word out is so helpful!!

>>KICKSTARTER PAGE HERE<<

thank you for your time!! <3

anonymous asked:

idk why i'm doing this but I've been following your blog for about a week now. I just wanted to ask why you like the ruby/sapphire scene so much? what makes it so special to you? It might sound harsh and it might just be my experience (i've had a bad time relationship-wise recently) but I don't see why these two fictional characters designed to be together are so important compared to real life people who find the same kind of thing despite the odds (or those who don't)

They’re so important because of what they represent 

You see, WE know that they are Nonbinary Lesbians, which in itself is just AWESOME because that’s just a whole slew of representation. But to CHILDREN, They see two female identifying characters in a loving and whole relationship and it is shown that its OKAY to be like that.

These children, who may be queer and haven’t properly figured it out yet, are seeing this and seeing that it’s OKAY, they can be like Ruby and Sapphire!! It’s just a very good representation~

For me personally, My biggest goal in life is to become an animator, so I can make something that can give more representation to minorities.Rebecca Sugar is my idol, and I want to create something great like she has.

Also, Ruby and Sapphire are just so. CUTE. I LOVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP DYNAMIC SO MUCH, And the concept that they love eachother so much that they create a new being out of that love and she turns out to be my favorite character is just so GOOD TO ME AHH. Garnet herself just has such delicious character development, she went from this stoic and cold character to one of the most loving beings in existence in such a way it makes sense and ahh I just really love it 

I know they’re fictional, but sometimes that doesn’t matter. To some people, like me at times, cartoons and fictional characters just mean so MUCH. These characters have made us happy when we’re feeling down and have inspired us to be better, and have taught us many different things, its hard NOT TO form some kind of attachment to them! Everyone is entitled to their own emotions and how they feel about certain things and everyone is unique with them~

Now I also know that it’s not for everyone, people have their own personal preferences and I dig that, like I’m not going to fly off the handle if you dont ship my OTP lol that aint cool, so all of you can talk to me about anything, I’m not gonna discourage your ships, im just gonna be over here in my own little area doing my thing and you can go have fun doing your things thats awesome~
