I feel bad that I have to identify myself as Mexican before I start this off... But why do people throw a lot of hate at Sarah for not having diversity? She isn't the only one who writes like this. Yes, she has the platform to speak about diversity... but she doesn't have

[2] to. Her job is to write enjoyable books. And TBH, I don’t actually look for the color of people’s skin or hair when I’m reading. & when it’s a same sex couple of course I cheer, but it’s not something I look out for first. What I’m trying to say is that you can’t hate Sarah for [3] The way she does. If you don’t like, don’t read. But also don’t put down others because they like something. Or put downs someone’s ship Bc it isn’t fem/fem or Male/fem. it’s promoting the same hate we are trying to stop. Also, I said “Mexican” Bc I feel like when [4] you try to defend something like this, you usually get backlash Bc people think you are defending white society or whatever

I agree with you 100%. You’re preaching to the choir. Idk if this is your first time at my blog, but I am an ardent defender of Sarah J Maas. I make the arguments you’re making right now all the time. 

We can’t expect Maas to be a chair, if she’s always been a table. That’s not fair of us to ask of her. We can’t change other people, but we can change ourselves. I’m not sure if you’re implying that I was putting down people for reading her books (cuz never have I ever) or if you’re just saying that in general…? (or if this is just a rant cuz you know my blog is a rant safe space. LOL)

I’m not sure, but all I’m saying is that if I, personally, am not getting what I want from Maas in the next few books, then I have to change my behavior. And that means I have to stop reading her books.

I am in no way shape or form telling other people not to like her (again: never have I ever). And I agree with you about ships. I helped invent Elriel and that got (and gets) so much hate. It’s like, “why do you care?” But people spend energy on all kinds of stuff. It’s one thing to have dialogues and debates with people about ships and evidence and all that, but when people make posts about “crackships” and how people are just desperate and bored it’s just rude. I agree. But I’m also not policing the internet. People can do and say what they want. I always just try to remember that “when they go low, you go high.”

Aaaand that’s all I got!

Off topic but I used to be so self conscious of my body hair that it almost destroyed me??????

Back in middle school girls shaving their arms became a thing and I have dark arm hair because I’m Italian, and I felt like everyone was staring at them and I became so horribly self conscious of my arm hair I had my mom get me thin long sleeved shirts so I could wear t-shirts again.

For an entire year, I hid my arm hair and had breakdowns because I thought people thought I was some gross freak for having body hair of any sort aside from the head
I shaved my legs constantly, which is probably why now even if I shave in the morning, by the night its already back to stubble. Theres no real point for me to shave on a daily basis when it stays at a certain length consistently no matter how often I do it.

When I realized that some of the girls in my grade had arm hair, I tried to get used to that and not be so self conscious.
Of course, I got picked on for having hairy legs so I shaved obsessively.
But no one cared about my arms.

I wish my body confidence hadn’t been destroyed like that back then, because even now, though I love my arm and leg hair, I still have body hair that’s perceived as ‘gross’ and ‘dirty’ but I can’t help it. Its my genetics.

Boob hair? Yup. Have it. Light and fine.

Belly hair? Definitely. Darker, and it’s fucking everywhere.
But its patchy and uneven.
At least I dont have a happy trail.

Genital is a given lol, I’m not gonna talk about that though. Its just really uncomfortable.

But seriously.
Guys have hair everywhere.
Girls have hair everywhere.
Nonbinary people have hair everywhere.
No matter how you identify, you have hair

And it’s not gross.

So can we PLEASE stop acting like a girl having some belly hair or leg hair is the most unattractive and disgusting/dirty thing in the world when guys have the exact same thing?

Its not gonna end the world if a girl has body hair.

Its fucking normal.

I cut my hair myself and i'm left with lots of hair that i collect so i was wondering if it could be useful in witchcraft?

for binding a spell to you personally, sure. or other creative uses you can come up with. 

PERSONAL RANT/VENT

i’m currently hiding my long hair and wearing a baggy sweater so my boobs aren’t so prominent. on a daily basis i appear as a female and theres no possible way for me to somewhat pass as male without a haircut. with my parents being completely against the lgbtq+ community, very old-fashion baptists, i can’t get a haircut and be myself until i go to college in fall of 2018.

i came out as trans in march of 2015, two years ago. i had short hair then and i was still growing as a person. but things got so bad with my parents over time and i’m not allowed to have my hair short and i’m forced to dress femininely. a month ago i even got moved to this tiny private school where we have to wear uniforms. skirts. every single day. and it is so easy to just go along with the way things are. it’s so easy for me to wear makeup and dresses and pretend to enjoy it, when in reality it makes me want to die, and this femininity on the outside is all bullcrap. it’s not me.

this strategically angled picture is me. i am not a girl. i am a bi transboy, but how is it possible to be a boy and happy when i’m living like this? it’s not. a lot of the time i want to continue bad past habits, and most of the time i want to leave this planet. but i know it will get better. if my happiness will do nothing but disappoint my parents, and the rest of my family, then so be it. i will make them happy now by having long girly hair and pretending to be feminine, but it can’t last.

when i get out of the house i am shaving my head, i’m not wearing dresses, and i’m not going to be the girl they want me to be. i’m going to get gender therapy and i’m going to get on testosterone. but for now, i’ll suffer through this shit.

and to any other young trans kids out there who live in abusive/discouraging homes, and aren’t able to be themselves, it will be better. it sucks, but you will not be under the ropes of the small minded people in your life. you will be who you are inside.

Do you know what your cats are? Because we rescued our floof and my bf thinks he’s a Norwegian forest cat hybrid but he looks EXACTLY like that top floof and he’s so much bigger than my lady tortoise shell

Mo’ is a domestic medium hair, but I’m not sure what breed exactly. He’s … a tad on the heavy side. So, he looks like a large breed cat, but he really isn’t. 

Fredburger is just your average, grumpy, medium hair tabby.

Can I just say, that I absolutely love these two? I love Percy and Annabeth, I love them in the first series because they were best friends before they became romantic. I like that they like each other for their personalities, and Percy loves how Annabeth fights. I just love these two, protect them <3

Currently started reading the Heroes of Olympus, which I have not read yet… so this should be interesting! (NO SPOILERS OR I’LL HUNT YOU DOWN…)
