Nope, sorry. If you wanted me to ignore you, you probably shouldn’t have publicly commented on my post. This is not the only comment like this. You are one of many people to try to find a way around what was said/meant/implied, whatever. Because there MUST be some other meaning.

First of all, the person quoted was not the only person to make such comments and they ALL mean the same thing. “I can overlook that she’s black because the costumes are well made.” There is nothing positive about that statement. Period. Just stop trying to pretend that there is. It implies that if your costume isn’t good enough, people won’t overlook the fact that you aren’t white. As if being black is some negative factor that should be counted against you. 

Second, you are also wrong about “literally almost all of the cosplays you did were of characters who are actually white”. No. No. No. I am going to assume you do not read comic books and correct your ignorance here. Out of the 10 characters I am cosplaying in that set, guess how many have black versions in the comics. Actually no, we’re going to say out of 8 because 2 are aliens. Martian Manhunter is NOT WHITE. He’s an alien who happens to shape shift into a black man for his secret identity sometimes. Dejah Thoris is also NOT WHITE. She is also from Mars but not the same comics as Martian Manhunter. White is not the default race of the whole galaxy, people.

 So that’s 8 characters left in the set and guess who are the ONLY ones out of 8 who DON’T have a black version in the continuity that I based my costumes on?? She Hulk and Colossus. Yep, the ones with full body paint. 2 out of 8. That’s it. That’s all. Everyone else is either black all the time, or black in the continuity that I based my costume on. 

This once again proves my point, that this type of discrimination is not based on ‘accuracy’ or anything else. White supremacy allows people to make the assumption that everything SHOULD be white, and that deviations from this norm must be noted, detracted OR if you’re so 'lucky’, can be 'overlooked’ if you’re 'good enough’.

I want to thank every person on this post who complimented me on my work, or expressed joy at seeing their favorite character represented, and even the people who negatively criticized my costume work based on my sewing skills not impressing them enough. Because they saw me as a whole person and not just my race being something they had to overlook.

also like I love all of you a lot and although I am kinda here to educate people it only goes to a certain extent. don’t expect me to be nice or patient when your opinion is both wrong and harmful to people and especially when you can easily google and educate yourself in seconds. I’m sorry but I’m not a teacher so idk why some of you expect me to act like one :-/

I randomly remember an old high school english teacher complaining about not making enough money, though he was making 56k a year. He went this rant how about it was nothing and he should be making more money. This was years ago.

I recently found out that to be in the top 1%, your income has to be just 34k a year. That really puts things in perspective. What might not be a lot to one person can mean a fortune to another.

*I should mention this is to be in the top 1% of the entire world, not just within the U.S*
HEY YOU!

Hey 17 - 25 year olds - I would really appreciate you filling out this survey on “the dream”(your plans and dreams for the future) and emerging adulthood. It will only take a few minutes, please and thank you!

My Eyesight VS A Normal Persons

A normal person has the ability to fully see a beautiful landscape such as the one above.

I however, see a blurred and crossed image.

There are a lot of misconceptions about my eyesight.  When I say to people, oh I do not have the ability to see, they think I see darkness.  People without eyesight often times think that you can not see anything past your distance limit (for people that can not see far away.)  A lot of people think that after a certain point, everything is black for me… This is untrue!

For example: I can only see 4 inches in front of me, everything behind that is blurred, NOT DARK.

However I greatly value the eyesight I have, and because I did not take care of my eyes when I was younger, my eyesight got worse!

You might have been born with perfect eyesight but that does not mean it may stay that way!

Please take care of your eyes people! They are amazing, no matter how far or how close you can see!

it isn't a question about "being intp and don't liking math as mostly of the intps do". it's a question about needing god's help to be good at math. how should i understand something without knowing what's the practical use of it in every-days-life, without knowing the "origin" of it or without a theory that explain it or a story that explain why someone wrote a theory to explain it? i don't accept your facts without my own point of view. i need more informations, school. give me more. :(

School won’t teach you the practical use, the origin, or the theory. You have to study those things yourself. Google your questions, read up on wikipedia, look up courses on Khan Academy. I think Khan Academy has a really amazing way of teaching. They usually will explain why you’re doing certain steps or why you need to apply this formula. They even explain why we use x/y/z and Greek letters in math. We live in a world where knowledge is readily available for free. Make good use of your time.

Also, about math, school does not teach real math. School only teaches you to memorize formula and how to follow the rules in math. Real math is creative. It’s an art; an experiment; an observation of the real world. Watch vihart and you’ll understand what I mean. She’s an amazing and creative mathematician (and an INTP). I recommend starting with this video: Doodling in Math: Spirals, Fibonacci, and Being a Plant.

This parasite (from the phylum Nematoda) is called Loa loa and may be the most terrifying thing I’ve ever seen. The larvae live in vector flies and are then transported to human tissue through a fly bite. The developing worm then travels along the tissues until it reaches the EYE where it stops and sets up camp for the next seventeen years or until removed by antibiotics or surgery. Ack.
