so carey fangbattle spent a whole afternoon w/ her wonderful girlfriend comforting her as she mourned the death of her best friend in the world. then her fuckin house gets swarmed by invisible who-the-fuck-knows-whats & she’s gotta fight THEM off, and then her beautiful girlfriend gets sliced up & now she’s terrified of losing HER, TOO, & she breathes a bunch of lightning-fire which HAS to be hard on her throat. and then her best friend who she thought was dead jogs up buck-wild naked holding a sword that is on fire
what i am saying here is that carey fangbattle needs a backrub & a nap. i love her
Hey, y’all. I was hoping to get a little help with something. I know I’ve talked about my boyfriend on here before, and about how he wants to understand gender, specifically non-binary gender, better. He was raised in a very conservative household where anything straying from the male-female was regarded as “socialist propaganda” and strongly dismissed, and it wasn’t until just a few years ago that the concept of gender theory was even available to him. Now, he’s very respectful of gender identity and he would never intentionally misgender someone because he’s not a dick, but he feels that he would benefit from understanding the issues surrounding gender in addition to accepting them.
He and I have had countless discussions on the subject. We tend to agree on most things and we generally reach the same conclusions, but our processes for arriving at those conclusions are different. He’s very intelligent, but we think differently. I’m a very abstract and theoretical thinker, but he is more concrete. It makes for some awesome discussions (y’all should come over for dinner sometime), but it also means that the sources I read to learn about and understand gender theory, those that use very theoretical and abstract language and points, are not helpful to him.
So, this is where you lot come in. You curious, brilliant people. I am looking for good articles or journals or even books on gender theory that are helpful to a concrete mind. Or, if any of my non-binary followers are willing, someone to sit down and patiently have a conversation with the man. Send me sources!
I went to the drive thru and the guy workin looked so pumped on life I was like yes my man and then when I got home and checked my food he had given me so many bonus fries like there was a whole medium fry in the bottom of my bag I swear I was living large
I have never felt more blessed in my entire life than I did in that moment
Akrona quietly walked through the halls of the ship with a smile and light spring in her step. She made her way to the galley and found Vette rummaging through the compartments.
Taking a few more steps toward Vette, Akrona tapped her on the shoulder. “What—”
“GAH!” Vette nearly jumped out of her skin, her lekku curled, and the bags she retrieved from the cabinets flew out of her hand. Spinning around as the bags fells around and behind her, Vette’s lekku unfurled themselves as she tried to collect her breathing. “Don’t scare me like that!”
“I’m sorry,” Akrona giggled, “I didn’t mean to frighten you.”
“You Sith and your quiet, sneaky ways…” Vette muttered under her breath, recollecting the bags, setting them aside, and went over to the conservator.
Akrona made her way to the water heater, starting it up before looking for the tins of loose tea leaves and two cups. “What are you doing so late anyway?”
“Huh?” Vette looked over the conservator door she had opened. “Oh!” She closed the door and bounced up to Akrona’s side. “Slumber party!”
