guys this is affecting me a lot

This is an actual message I was just sent on grindr.
I understand that there are some that have experimented with their sexuality at a very young age and have turned out fine, and I’m not trying to make generalizations.
However, legally, age of consent in certain areas exists for a reason.
As a younger teenager, I turned to sex as a form of making up for physical affection as well as a form of self harm. I also had heard stories of all of these guys having sex by 14 or 15 and wanted to see what it was all about.
It became expected of me, and I began coupling my compulsive sex with substance abuse for nearly 2 years straight to deal with a lot of deeper internal issues (as sex addiction usually implies).
I was abused and taken advantage of physically/sexually on more that one occasion.
It’s a miracle that throughout that time, I didn’t develop any sexually transmitted diseases, especially because of how Texas’ Sex Education system works (abstinence only, cover of diseases transmitted through vaginal sex, no oral, anal, or contraceptive coverage of any kind).
All of my advice comes from personal experience, and, factually, I do have something to add:
LGBT men (especially young gay and trans men), experience the highest rate of eating disorders among the male demographic. As a general whole, queer men are EXPECTED to have as much sex as possible with as many muscled bodies as they can.
This is why bears, twinks, and other subsets of the gay culture are more shamed for things they do that aren’t actively participating in their assigned sexual roles.
The hypersexuality of the queer community is extremely harmful to younger people. It’s our job to stop this stigma and educate people before it fucks them over.

Something I should have said a long time ago

Hey guys. A lot of you may already know me. But if you don’t, let me introduce myself.

My name is Gemma. I am 18 years old and I live in Ireland. I enjoy watching my favourite youtubers such as jacksepticeye, markiplier, game grumps, and achievement hunter.

I also have Stage 4 Ocular Lymphoma, a type of cancer affecting my left eye.I have two different tumours in my eye, an ocular tumour and an intraocular tumour.

I’ve always just been comfortable with it because I don’t think it makes me any different than anybody else – your sexuality doesn’t define you whatsoever, and it doesn’t affect anyone else, so I’ve never looked at it as a big deal. But unfortunately in today’s society it still is for a lot of people. Thankfully the worst criticism I’ve had is, ‘It’s a shame she’s gay!’ because some guy wanted to date me.

i didnt watch cyndago a lot

pretty much the only cyndago videos i watched were ones that mark had uploaded to his channel. but every single time i watched them i always laughed at them and found them entertaining, silly, etc. and now to hear about what has happened, im absolutely heartbroken

rest in peace daniel. you will always be remembered for helping to bring a smile to our faces

vote undertale in the game faq’s semifinals!

this game has come so, so far in this contest, guys. please vote for it here!

melee was practically my childhood. i played it almost weekly, i played it with anyone who’s sit long enough (i mained kirby). i love that game so much, and it holds a lot of nostalgia for me.

that being said, no game has ever affected me as much as undertale. ive never gotten this invested in the characters, the plot, the mechanics, everything about it. even beyond that, it has so many things that melee simply doesn’t. its a game that challenges the mechanics of RPG games as a whole, that really looks at how every small choice you make could affect a character. it hid a character in the fucking code, who does that??? 

this game deserves the world, guys. no one thought we’d make it as far as we did. lets go farther. i believe we can win! (insert some joke about determination)

PSA

Hi everyone! We’re up past 600 followers and I’m so happy with how active this blog is! Thank you!

However, there’s something that’s becoming more and more prominent both on my dash and in Sebastian’s tag, and it’s really making me feel sick.

The whole “trash junkie dumpster slut” stuff has really gotten disgusting guys. Maybe it was funny in the tags on one photo. Maybe if you like that aesthetic you could write a clearly marked AU fanfic.

But this is being thrown around at him on instagram, and this is all over his tag here on tumblr, and he has no idea you have any sort of affection in that insult, nor would his friends or family, or even a casual observer.

Sebastian is a serious actor, and he’s finally gotten a role that has earned him a lot of attention and a lot of fans, and he’s obviously been really excited about the whole thing. But if this is what he’s seeing come at him now, I wouldn’t blame him if he pulled away from us as a whole. Have you thought maybe this has something to do with his absence on instagram this week?

So ask yourself, would you say any of these things to his face? Would you say these things about a woman, about Scarlett?  If you feel uneasy with either of these options, you probably shouldn’t be throwing these things around to Sebastian online, nor tagged all over tumblr. Because not only are you possibly upsetting him personally, you are potentially affecting his reputation.

I happen to want to see him go on to land many, many more diverse roles and have a long and successful career. What happens when a casting director googles him and finds people calling him all these names?

So, please, please treat Sebastian with respect. Like I said, if you want to write clearly marked AU fanfiction, I will accept it here. But before you decide to next lovingly spew hurtful names at him, think of how he might react if he read your words.

Thank you.

guys, official leak here! a guy i know works for nintendo’s dad and he sent me this exclusive leaked image of a new character theyre gonna show off tomorrow. his name is Cool Guy, and he has no attacks, but he can not be killed. really interesting character that i feel will affect the meta game a lot!

Blake, 17, Charlotte, NC

Becoming homecoming king is kind of the only normal teenage dream I’ve had. I was really surprised, though, that I was nominated. I didn’t think it was attainable because I’m trans, but now I feel like I could get it. I’m taking the steps that need to be made for progress among the transgender community. I’m just trying to make the T in LGBT not so silent.

Being a black trans man is an especially unique experience. When you transition from any gender to another gender, that affects you. I went from a black woman to a scary black guy. My white trans guy friends say they get all these great privileges. I’ve had a lot of experiences where people look at you differently. It’s scary.

I moved from Charleston to Charlotte because my mom couldn’t afford to take care of me anymore. I moved in with my dad and stepmom. I left because of safety issues. My dad’s an alcoholic. When he drinks he gets pretty abusive. I couldn’t handle the physical part. When my dad thought I was a lesbian, he thought beating the gay out of me would change something. When I said I was trans he said, “You’ll always be my little girl.” I didn’t feel too much remorse about the way he’s treated me. I didn’t grow up with him. I’ve always had resentment towards him for leaving me and my mom when I was younger. Whenever he expressed how he wasn’t supportive of me it hurt, but it didn’t hurt more than it had before.

Now I’m in foster care. The system has been very supportive as far as me being transgender, but it’s been very painful. At any time someone could just say, “We’re sending you back.” Next year I’m going to live on campus at UNC Charlotte, but there’s an agreement with foster parents in North Carolina where you can come back and stay with them for breaks from college.

I’m really excited for college. I’m going to UNC Charlotte to major in math and minor in music and education. UNC Charlotte is very LGBT-friendly. You can meet a ton of new people and have friends who understand and get it, and have friends who only know me as Blake. It’s really annoying being known as being trans. Even the people who are really supportive say things like, “I know who you were.”

Playing rugby was the first time I was ever treated equally as a male. Sometimes you’ll get guys who will say, “I don’t want to tackle a girl.” At the time I hadn’t officially said I was trans. They all called me Shaggy. It was a very welcoming experience.

My current girlfriend is the first person I’ve dated where I was like, “I’m Blake. I’m a boy.” Of course, she asked her initial questions out of natural curiosity. But she was like, “You don’t exist as a girl like me.” Sometimes she forgets I can’t use the guys’ bathroom at school. She went with me to my first doctor’s visit to start testosterone. She’s been there constantly. She’s there for me when people mess up on pronouns, which makes my life so much easier. I think everyone needs that. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, it’s amazing to have someone there for you.

IMPORTANT

There is a guy on YouTube that is uploading videos from tumblr, to his own channel.

I discovered them, thinking they were an animator by this video.
No big deal, right?

Until I went through their videos…and the rage set it in.

“But Dawn,” you must be thinking, “Why do you care? It doesn’t affect you!”

And there goes my other point. It DOES affect me.

First off, they did upload my videos as well.
here, here, here, here, and here.
Second, they also stole from someone who I admire a lot, who makes montages and parodies. You know her as @stariousfalls
The video was downloaded directly from her tumblr page, and onto to youtube.
And yes, she does have her own YouTube channel as well, but that’s not it. And she never uploads them individually, unless its an amv or something like that. Anyways, if you don’t believe me, here is the video so you can see it for yourself. 

And worst of all, HE NEVER EVER GIVES CREDIT!
It’s bad enough that he’s doing all this other stuff, and then doesn’t have the decency to actually link back to the tumblr, or just say, “Hey, this isn’t mine!”

I’m tagging all my followers because this needs to be heard. 
Please help me take this channel down.

Guys, I need to take a break from my usual silliness to talk about what we’re all thinking about, one way or another: Election Day.

Here in Japan, it’s already Tuesday. I’m going about my day as usual–I actually have a class to teach in just a few minutes. I have to keep this swirling nervousness inside me because it’s an observation lesson, so I have to be in my best behavior.

But don’t think, for one second, that this isn’t affecting me, too.

I know a lot of you are probably like me: before this election, you couldn’t have cared less about politics. I bet some of you even wish it wasn’t happening.

But it is.

It IS happening.

Tomorrow will be a day that will go down in history books; it’ll be something your children read about in schools. It’ll either be known as the day we NARROWLY dodged a bullet…or the day the world ended.

So what I’m asking of you, here and now, is to VOTE.

I don’t care if you think it’s a hassle. I don’t care if you don’t like either of the candidates that actually have a CHANCE to win the presidency. I don’t care if your morals are screaming at the top of their lungs that this election is rigged to high hell–VOTE.

This is bigger than your morals. This is bigger than you, and your vision for what America should be. Because this is what America IS, and you need to face it, deal with it, and VOTE.

More specifically, vote Hillary Clinton.

Yeah, yeah, I know–some of you don’t like her. Some of you would rather a third party candidate than either Hillary or Donald.

But let me ask you something: do you really think any Republicans are going to be voting third party? Do you actually think, seeing all the numbers and statistics that have been EVERYWHERE on here, that your champion actually has a chance, when it’s been proven over and over again that VOTING THIRD PARTY DOESN’T WORK?

And do you think, for even one second, that your friends will still stand by you, you who split the Democratic vote because of your morals or whatever–do you actually think they’d be able to look at you the same, after you helped hand Donald the presidency?

Would YOU be able to face yourself in the mirror, knowing you helped make that happen?

Again, this is bigger than you, your morals, and your vision on what America should be. This is what America IS.

Face it.

Deal with it.

Vote Hillary Clinton.

And for those of you who say it’ll be too much of a hassle to vote, let me put things in perspective for you:

For an absentee ballot, I had to register to vote online, wait until it was confirmed, print out my ballot, provide documentation that proved that I was who I was, and negotiate the mailing of said ballot from my post office. In Japanese.

And you’re telling me you can’t stand in line for a couple hours? If that’s your argument, then you’ll find limited sympathy from me, if at all.

I know this task is daunting. There will be bigoted scum watching the polls, challenging your rights, trying to prevent you from performing your civic duty.

Do not let them win.

Do not let this literal spawn of Satan win.

Vote Hillary Clinton.

Dating SUGA/Yoongi

here is what we thing dating Yoongi would be like~

-comfortable silence

-spending a lot of time in the studio

-worrying about him

-lame jokes he tells “ironically”

-”What do you call a fake noodle?”

-”I don’t know, Yoongi. What do you call it?”

-”An impasta.” *badum tss*

-he does a lot of things “ironically”

-like going to starbucks or listening to the backstreet boys

-cuddles only for you and when nobody’s looking

-asking your opinion on his new beats

-actually shy

-thinks a lot about his words

-being the asshole couple

-aka being pissed off when someone wakes you up

-all the forehead kisses

-protective yoongi

-like this guy would protect you with his life

-being proud of you when you rap really well

-getting some of his sweg

-”Can you pass me my keys?”

-”You mean: your sweg keys?” *eyebrow wiggling*

-clumsy Yoongi when he shows affection

-”I heard you like this kind of bread?”

-”O…kay?”

-”It’s not like I bought it for you or anything.”

-”Then why are you giving it to me?”

-”I kind of…found it?”

-not a big fan of PDA

-but sometimes he awkwardly holds your hand

-plays it cool in front of people, but is a total sweetheart

-love-hate relationship

-”I love you, loser.”

-”Shut up, idiot.”

-but always knowing how much you love each other

-always knowing that he’s there for you even if he doesn’t show it often~

-Admin S and Moon

So in reichenbach there’s the scene where she tells him he looks sad right? and there’s the part where she’s like I don’t count and he does this thing. he blinks and his eyes flicker over her briefly and he looks like he’s confused or something… And then she asks if he wants anything after she says she’s going to get crisps and he tries to tell her she counts by saying he wants something, to join her but she brushes him off and then he just stares after her and looks down and he’s having a moment and I just need to talk about it with someone because its important

sashapieterse27 To my incredible and loving fans, words cannot express how amazed I am by you!

I’m so thankful for the affection you have for me, Alison, and Pretty Little Liars! We/I wouldn’t be able to make it happen without you! I get to do what I love every single day because of you guys! 

As a lot of you have noticed my body has gone through some changes, and I want to clear the air and give you an explanation. I have been facing a bad hormone imbalance that has thrown my body completely out of whack. I want to assure you that I’m healthy and getting everything back on track!

 A big thanks to all of you who have been in my corner! We live in such a judge mental society that puts every kind of flaw, including weight gain, in the same category. And for those of you who are struggling with any health problem, hormone imbalance, and weight gain of any sort I urge and encourage you to please deal with it in a healthy manor. YOU and YOUR health are what matters, not anyone else’s opinions and assumptions of you. Getting healthy isn’t just about working out and eating right (however extremely important) it’s also about surrounding yourself with those who care about you and want to see you succeed and become the best you can be.

I love every single one of you and I hold you all dear to my heart!

Sasha

happy sunday guys! hope ya’ll had a good weekend 👍 what video should I do next for www.youtube.com/jamieryandee? also I always read the comments and I noticed that a lot of you guys defend me which I’m thankful for but honestly just ignore it 💙 it’s not worth anyone’s time and doesn’t affect me 😁 love you all

dA Link for less hideous blurry typefaceing - [x]

Thinking back, I’ve always appreciated Daft Punk. Of course I was familiar with all their popular singles and it was easy to enjoy all the mash ups and remixes they were featured in. I enjoyed Interstella 5555 and I always thought the sci-fi glam look was really cool. But I didn’t really call myself a huge fan in the same way I was a huge fan of, say…well, any of the other fandoms I’m a part of.

But a heart-string snapped in me or something, seeing Thomas hug Guy-Man like that, and all of a sudden I felt A MIGHTY NEED to collect and devour any Daft Punk material I can find. Browsing tumblr right now, I guess a lot of you feel the same? Did they hit some kind of cuteness critical mass that’s been slowly building up over the years? Or is it that, for a little while, they broke their cool, silent personas to express some happiness and affection?

Well, it does help that they’re pretty talented. Not only can they create some catchy tunes, Alive 2007 has done a good job convincing me that they can mix some hella fierce beats; in front of a live concert crowd no less.

you know what tho like I used to see posts supporting the LGBTQ+ community by using comparisons with the privilege that cishets get & it allowed me, as a cishet, to understand what being a supporter means

but now all the posts I see are literally people in the LGBTQ+ community bringing each other down because they wanna fight over who’s more oppressed. like. this is about moving forward together.

HEALTH UPDATE

I’m sorry for the lack of activity, I’m dealing with a lot of health problems and spending time in and out of hospital. They haven’t quite figured out what’s wrong with me yet but they know it’s affecting my kidneys, bladder, pancreas and gall bladder.. so it’s a little scary… 

I drew this about a month ago, but I felt like it was pretty relevant now. Also I haven’t uploaded anything in a while. 

Thank you everyone for the support and well wishes. I’ll get through this. 

Part 2 (3?)-also known as that time Ronan almost told Adam he loved him and then they yelled at each other

Ronan didn’t know it was possible for leather seats to conduct so much electricity.

He switched smoothly from second to third gear, his blood hot and his heart full. The Henrietta night opened up in front of him, the heat magnifying the smell of gasoline and asphalt. Ronan took it all in, reveling in it, intoxicated. Underneath, he could smell the faint trace of moss and cheap soap–Adam. If possible, his pulse pounded even quicker, jumping against the leather bands at his wrist.

 The bass of his music, playing as loudly as possible without rattling his doors, pumped through his heels, his legs, his hands, until it was indistinguishable from his heartbeat. Everyone seemed to assume that Ronan’s music was just another piece of his loud existence, but the truth was that it was as close as he could get to telling the world the essence of being Ronan. It was what you got when you distilled Ronan, removed the impurities and scraped away the layers, refining and filtering until all that was left was desire and creation, dark nights and bright dreams, heat and pavement. It was, in short, Ronan’s life force, laid bare.

Ronan felt so, so alive.

Adam leaned his forehead against the passenger window, willing the coolness to spread to the rest of his skin. The summer heat coated his skin, wrapped around his neck like feverish fingers. Ronan’s music bled through the glass, slowly consuming him, coaxing fire into his bones. From the outside, he looked every bit the boy who kept exhaustion as a constant companion. But for once, for one glorious night, he wasn’t tired.

Usually, Ronan’s music set him on edge. The volume of it, the violence of it, was often too much for him. He did almost everything quietly, and he was vaguely uncomfortable knowing that they were announcing their presence from two blocks away. But tonight, tonight it didn’t feel like giving himself away. Tonight it felt like he and Ronan were kings, the rest of the night their kingdom, and the world should know they were coming.

Adam lifted his head from the window, and glanced at Ronan furtively under his dusty eyelashes. His breath caught in his lungs, painfully solid. Ronan had one wrist resting on the steering wheel, the other unconsciously tapping to the beat of the music on his knee. His tattoo curved around his shoulders and onto his neck, hooking and curling and, Adam could swear it, moving in the glow of the lights flashing past. But what truly captivated Adam, what he couldn’t seem to tear his eyes away from, was Ronan’s face. Ronan was always handsome, in the way that sleek cars and sharp knives are handsome, but there was something so…. other about him tonight. Normally carved of shadows and planes, his face was lit with what, on anyone else, would have been called joy. On Ronan, the emotion looked more like hunger. Adam could feel the energy rolling off him, sparking on Adam’s own skin and catching fire.

PLEASE READ THIS, I NEED YOUR OPINION!!

Opinion is needed yes. Uh, so. First thing is first, although do like when people ask me to update in my inbox, I DON’T like things like ‘will you ever update’ or 'did you abandon this comic’, NO– I haven’t okay like I keep saying this and for those of you who ask me this, I’d like to ask for you to please stop because honestly it just raises my anxiety and I end up logging out right after reading my inbox. I do not AT ALL expect you guys to know how it affects me, and hell no I’m not mad at you for it, it’s just that there are SO many people asking that same thing that it’s making me stressed when I do have a lot of plans still for this comic. Again, technically issues. So before I move on, I just want to say to those of you who have sent me questions like that in the past please not to feel bad if you do, I’m not angry at all, you didn’t know because I’m only just now saying it and it’s my fault for that. Just letting people know that I get that question all the time and it sort of slaps me in the face of how rarely I get to updating. Okay, done with that.

Here comes where I need your opinion.

I’m thinking of permanently changing the format of this comic.

What does this mean??? It means I’ve been realizing how many problems the program and the computer it’s installed on has been giving me. That computer would shut down randomly when I’m working on something and it’s irritating as hell.

What format is it changing to? Traditional. This comes with options though, Pencil which is more roughed out like the first two, or Ink- which s more finalized.

Pencil:

Ink:

(That’s Unwanted Free Ugly Troll by coldhope fanart btw)

(the ones for the comic won’t have color sorry, imagine that but without colored pencil)

It gets rid of technical issues but idk if my scanner still works?? So if it were a think, would it seem like a good idea or no? I really need your feedback so I know how I should continue, it matters to me.

No? If yes, pencil or ink?
