There are a few aphobic arguments that are actually worth a little thought, but the “A stands for Ally” one does not

That one is possibly the most ridiculous one i’ve ever heard

There is no reason AT ALL for cishet allies to need a letter. They’re not LGBT. You can walk around in circles arguing whether or not “straight” aces or aromantics belong, but like. I think we can all agree that cishet people who aren’t ace/aro don’t belong there. They don’t need a letter. Putting “i support the gays” in your blog description doesn’t make you an honorary gay, try again.

“But it’s useful to have the letter stand for Ally if you’re closeted,” you say. But like. No? It’s not? Tell me, if you’re in the closet, because you fear for your life or your livelihood or just don’t want to come out, are you going to go around telling people you’re a part of the LGBT community? You’re absolutely not going to do that. That makes no sense. Even if the person you’re talking to thinks that A stands for Ally, they’re not going to assume that’s what you meant.

“But in school clubs–” At my school, we have a Gay Straight Trans Alliance. Straight is included for straight people who want to learn how to be an ally, and also for closeted people who don’t want to come out. It doesn’t mention all the other letters in the acronym, but like, it’s a club, not a label describing all the members of a specific community. You can call yourself a member of the GSTA and not be gay, but you can’t call yourself a member of the LGBT community if you aren’t actually.

So like, if your go-to argument is “A stands for Ally”, consider not using it? Because it’s wrong. It doesn’t matter that the person who put the A in there designated it for allies. Allies aren’t a part of the LGBT community, no matter how much they put forth to keep us safe or whatever. 

A stands for Asexual.

Why, would you want to be,   here?

        Am         C     Dm

What do you, ever, see here?

       C                                                            E

That doesn’t make you feel worse, than you do?

Tell me,


Am                                        E

What’s the use of feeling… Blue?



[Verse 2]

Am                                  E

Why, would you want to employ her

A Sapphire has a use, she can tell you what it’s for

E                              C

An Agate terrifies, a Lapis terraforms

B

Where’s their diamond when they need her, Blue?

           E

You’ve got to be a leader, Blue!

Am                                 F

Yes! Of course, we still love, her

G                            C          F
And we’re always, thinking of her

              G                                    E

But now, there’s nothing we can, do-

E

Am                        B

What’s the use of feeling?

Am                        B           Am~    

What’s the use of feeling, Blue?



[Bridge]

C

Ohh,

[Yellow Diamond]

                    G                 C

How can you stand to be here with it all?

            C

[Pearls] Here with it all

                                      F

[All] Drowning in all this regret?

                               E                       G

Wouldn’t you rather forget her? Ohhh~!

                             G                                  C

[Yellow Diamond] Won’t it be grand to get rid of it all?

             C

[Pearls] Rid of it all

       F

[All] Let’s make a plan of attack

E                                        G

Start looking forward and stop looking back, oh,



[Chorus 2: Yellow Diamond]

C                                 Dm

Yes of course, we still love her

F                           C               F

And we’re always thinking of her

C                                        F

Don’t you know I miss her, too!?

But tell me,

                            E

What’s the use of feeling?

                            Am

What’s the use of feeling?

                            E

What’s the use of feeling?



[Outro]

E                           

Mmm-hmm-hmm, Mmm-hmm-hmm

Am                                 B        

Mmm-hmm-hmm-hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm-mmmm….

anonymous asked:

Weird question, I noticed you said you work on collective memory (yay!). I'm thinking of writing my senior undergraduate thesis on the memory of the Third Reich and the Holocaust in the two German states. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for just general readings on collective memory.

Hello, first of all, many thanks for your question. I’m actually very exited to be asked about something that relates to my thesis in some way.

Second, this is such a great and interesting topic! You should have no problem finding works in which to situate your argument. There is such a large historiography and collective memory and commemoration!

Third, before I make my suggestions, I would advise you to browse the blog @historicity-was-already-taken, the moderator is a public historian who is well-versed in these topics. You might find some works in her bibliography useful

Now, on the question of collective memory in the two Germanys and in the re-united nation:

As you can see, some of these are a bit dated but it’s important to recognize key contributions such as those in your own work. You can then supplement you paper with more recent monographies and articles. 

Now, as for works on collective memory:

*You will notice that while some scholars talk about “collective memory” others refer to it as “cultural memory,” “social memory” or even “collected memory.” Memory studies is a multidisciplinary field. Scholars have yet to better theorize it. Although you don’t need to take position on this debate (especially not for a paper of this size), it might be a good idea to explain, even if very briefly,  why you favour a particular term. It may simply be that you want to align your work with that of a particular scholar, make that clear in your introduction.

Finally, I hope she won’t mind but I know @virtual-tonks is German, perhaps a little conversation with her might help you better imagine your project.

That is all. I hope you find this useful! Good luck on your paper!

Can you do something like Vinsmoke brother x Sanjina. Where the vinsmoke bro are the good guys and trying to rescue Sanjina from Crocodile and the Baroque Works? That's just an idea by the way. I love you art so much! Please keep up the great work!

1,2, 4: STAY AWAY FROM OUR SISTER, M@#HERF*$KERS!!!!

Sanjina: …Dafaq?!

Let’s just say Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji went all the way to protect their sis Sanjina who can defend herself…

Nami: Great….another brothers with sibling complex…

Intro Notes: 
C G B A 
E D C F
A G

Intro Chords: 
Dm C G Am G F

C (x2)
There is a girl
Am (x2)
In the front of my class

G (x2)
Who I swear I’ve never seen
F (x2)
Do anything but laugh
C (x2)
She’s tall and she’s smart
Am (x2)
Beautiful and strong
G (x2)
And when someone’s down
F (x2)
She tries to fix what it wrong

Dm                    C               Am
How does someone so perfect
C          G     F
Feel so insecure
          Dm         C            Am         G
As to scar her skin with cuts and burns
        C            G         F
And still want to hurt more
Dm                      C        Am        G
How does someone so loving
C            G                    F
Learn to hate her own guts
Dm            C                     Am            G
Drawing a picture on her arm with a blade
               C            G        F
As if her mind isn’t dark enough

C (x2)
There is a girl
Am (x2)
In the front of my class
G (x2)
Who’s eyes are glazed over
F (x2)
Like newly cut glass
C (x2)
The ghost of a smile
Am (x2)
Hints at her face
G (x2)
As she laughs when they tell her
F (x2)
‘Who’s on First Base’


Dm                    C               Am
How does someone so perfect
C          G     F
Feel so insecure
          Dm         C            Am         G
As to scar her skin with cuts and burns
        C            G         F
And still want to hurt more
Dm                      C        Am        G
How does someone so loving
C            G                    F
Learn to hate her own guts
Dm            C                     Am            G
Drawing a picture on her arm with a blade
               C            G        F
As if her mind isn’t dark enough

C (x2)
There is a girl

Am (x2)
In the front of my class
G (x2)
Who’s so sad that you find it rare
F (x2)
To see her smile or laugh
C (x2)
Her friends tell her jokes
Am (x2) 
Like that one with the guy
G (x2) 
But all she does is close her eyes
F (x2)
And enter her mind

Dm                    C               Am
How does someone so perfect
C          G     F
Feel so insecure
          Dm         C            Am         G
As to scar her skin with cuts and burns
        C            G         F
And still want to hurt more
Dm                      C        Am        G
How does someone so loving
C            G                    F
Learn to hate her own guts
Dm            C                     Am            G
Drawing a picture on her arm with a blade
               C            G        F
As if her mind isn’t dark enough
                      C
For her imperfections

C (x2)
There was a girl

Am (x2)
In the front of my class
G (x2)
Who yesterday took
F (x2)
The breath that was her last

C (x2)
She wrote a few notes:
Am (x2)
'I’m sorry I didn’t say
G (x2)
But my mind was messed up

You couldn’t save me anyway..

                 G                                Am
And to the girl in the back of the class,
        C                      Am
Who feels the way I did..

'Dm                    C               Am
How does someone so perfect
C          G     F
Feel so insecure
          Dm         C            Am         G
As to scar her skin with cuts and burns
        C            G         F
And still want to hurt more..?’

You do realise arguing exclusively against men makes you literally as bad as them right? If you want actual gender equality then herf derf blup couldn't even fake type that dumb shit any more. Thank you for keeping up your blog, it's genuinely helping me to question and change awful behaviours and social schemas that as a white male I've utterly failed to recognise in the past.

I had to read that twice. Thanks, I’m glad I can push others to continue learning. You help me remember that tumblr isn’t just full of self entitled angry trolls
