i actually have a job at target

Okay, but imagine a medieval adventure fantasy where asexuals sell their services to parties who have to travel past sirens/incubi/succubi in order to fulfill their quests.

Imagine young witches and warlocks going through a final wizardry test where they have to square off against every magical creature they’ve ever learned about, and everyone is really confused as to how that one team just strolled past the sirens/incubi/succubi, and also as to why afterwards they high-fived, said “Aced it!” and then laughed for ten minutes straight.

Imagine a villain dousing a hero with a love potion and then unshackling her, expecting mindless devotion, only to have her then stab him and say “I’m aromantic, actually.”

Imagine an incubus carefully choosing a target and ending up on her couch with a tub of ice cream as she assures him that he is really good at his job and he can’t help it that he happened to pick an ace target.

Imagine an ace sailor who has to tie up his companions in the hold and sail the ship by himself whenever they encounter mermaids, and since it’s just him it’s really slow going, and he spends the entire time griping about allosexuals to the mermaids, who in turn gripe about how sick they are of having to target sailors before the sailors target them.

Imagine a love god trying to set up a pair of aro ace soulmates and putting them in increasingly romantic and/or risque situations, only to pull his hair out in frustration as they ignore or fix every situation and just become better and better friends.

Just like, fantasy aces and aros, y’all.

If the Team's overall goal is to anger, alienate and pulverize the fans, they may have finally succeeded, at least for me, with Babygate 2.0. I mean, I knew it was coming, but now that it's actually here, with announcements and photos and another stupid name (BRUCE PAYNE??!?) I mean. I know you've said Zouis were the main targets, and you're right. We hate the Team and we mock them, but really, they're doing a very good job at annihilating any enjoyment, love and joy I used to feel for this band

I still enjoy the music and think what they sell us about the boys is largely untrue. I am no longer here for this fandom, a majority of people have proven themselves to be hypocritical douches and I have no time for them. I’m here for the boys and their music.

Star Trek, “The Lights of Zetar”

The 50th anniversary has me rewatching ST:TOS episodes I haven’t watched in their entirety for decades. It’s really hitting me more than ever what a strange middle ground women occupied in the series. They’re present, they have important jobs, but they’re routinely portrayed as unreliable, weak, and childish – not to mention, sexual distractions. Sure, Mira Romaine mentally resists the Zetarians, but only with a whole lot of condescending pep talks from men – and the reason the aliens target her in the first place is that she’s mentally “pliant” (i.e. weak and easily controlled). 

In other words, women are not actually the people you’d want in these important jobs, so there’s this weird cognitive dissonance in the message regarding women. They belong here, but they’re a liability. How can both be true? Without having really articulated it, this contradiction plagued me as a young fan. There were female characters, but they weren’t who I wanted be like at all. I did not want to be the liability.

It probably explains a lot about me, actually. Today, it matters so much to me to always be seen as strong, capable, and as good as, because I was raised in a culture that consistently cast me as not those things. I see slippery slopes everywhere. One wrong step toward othering and objectification, and we’ll end up right back in that terrible, marginalized place. Maybe it’s paranoia, but of course, I don’t think so. I just think it’s a lesson of history.

Quirtina Crittenden was struggling to get a room on Airbnb. She would send a request to a host. Wait. And then get declined.

“The hosts would always come up with excuses like, ‘oh, someone actually just booked it’ or 'oh, some of my regulars are coming in town, and they’re going to stay there,’” Crittenden said. “But I got suspicious when I would check back like days later and see that those dates were still available.”

In many ways Crittenden, 23, is the target audience for AirBnb. She’s young, likes to travel, and has a good paying job as a business consultant in Chicago. So she started to wonder if it had something to do with her race. Crittenden is African American, and on AirBnb, both hosts and guests are required to have their names and photos prominently displayed on their profiles.

Crittenden shared her frustrations on Twitter with the hashtag #AirbnbWhileBlack. She started hearing from lots of friends who had similar experiences.

OK guys. in episode 11 The Dominator of the Universe it shows all the villains that are still live and what thy are doing currently. Hammerhead is filling out job applications. Dr Genus and Armored Gorilla are now making some form of food item that has octopus in it and then it gets fried into little patties. The we move on to Speed O’ Sound Sonic and it shows an wooden post with all sorts of throwing daggers embedded in it . If you look at the post carefully you can see Saitamas face is carved into it. But very few knifes are have actually hit the face. I mean really Sonic how can you even hope of defeating Saitama if you cant even hit an target that is standing still. That is completely unreasonable

Seriously, be noice over gaming...

Peps oughta be aware I’m an E-Liter 3K Scope main and I practice with it daily every day (yes, EVERY.  DAY.).  Now we all know how frustrating they are to deal with, especially with attack ups.  We can complain about how long their range is and yada yada yada.

BUT that gives you no right to complain to the actual sniper.

Long story short, I have been receiving complaints about my E-Liter sniping (thankfully, very rarely).  Just recently getting a message of me to stop sniping and it’s not the first nor will it be the last.  Apparently telling me to “stop killing them” so much.  But the point of the game is to take turf and win, so isn’t that my job? Don’t get so salty and complain just because one person is “apparently” targeting you, they’re just doing their job as I am.

Complaining about the weapon is totally fine, we can share our pain.  But complaining about the person using it? That’s totally not fine.

And it’s been really wrecking me since what am I supposed to do if no one appreciates me sniping? What’s the point of playing a game when no one likes you for doing it? I could go on, but I’m seriously really pissed off… just gonna doodle and just get the stress off…

  • salesperson: hey, do you have a minute?
  • what i wish i could say: look i understand that you're just trying to do your job and make a living, and i can't fault you for that. but the fact of the matter is, i cannot stand the marketing methods you are using to directly target me. buttering me up yet making me feel self conscious, offering me great deals because i'm "special," just like the last 10 people you did this to, putting me in a position where compulsory politeness tells me that you have extended your courtesy and time toward me and i should not be able to say no. however, what you are actually doing is guilting me into buying a very expensive product which, i quite frankly, do not actually need. you are coercing me into making a purchase that i feel i had no control over and it is leaving a very poor taste in my mouth. in the future, please attempt to use alternative, less direct marketing strategies, in which you leave me mostly to myself to peruse your products, leaving me to feel that i have made my own decision in regards to my purchase, regardless of whether or not that was actually the case. a purchase made by a reluctant buyer is a purchase full of regret, and thus, a one time ordeal. however, allowing a consumer to feel as though they are in control, and simply validating their product choices for them rather than forcing products onto them is going to provide you with happier, long term customers.
  • what i end up saying: hahahahaha.... sure... (nervously glances at the time)
TROLL NO. 1 AKA BUTTPLUGAU - CHECK OUT THE SHIT I HAVE TO DEAL WITH

buttplugau

You have to listen to me this is so unbelievably important

sexatoxbridge

Oooookay

sexatoxbridge

I’m listening

buttplugau

Hold on I’m typingbuttplugau

First, that ask you answered to whom claims to be Harry, needs to be deleted. I put all seriousness into saying a lot of people, happiness, and jobs are at risk if certain people see that. Things have gotten out of hand in this situation and it would be be best if you would refrain from anything regarding that url on your blog. You’re being targeted for being a big blog, in order to shut them down. I’m not asking you to believe me. All I’m asking is you delete that post because if certain people see it, it would really affect the people you do not want to be hurt in the worst possible way.

buttplugauIf 

you really love these boys you would cooperate with us.

buttplugau

Also, if you would like any information or have any questions , I’m here to answer within reason

sexatoxbridge

Yeah…do you know the URLs I’m talking about?

buttplugau

You have Harry and Louis [NOT INCLUDING SAID URLS]

sexatoxbridge

Your blog says that your name is Kenzie, you’re 15 and your side blog would indicate you live in Oregon. Why exactly would I be meant to believe you?

buttplugau

Because I’ve been talking to these boys for almost four months and am quite close with a member of their management

Now please, I’m trying to protect these boys

sexatoxbridge

I haven’t published any urls so what’s the big deal? I could literally be talking about anyone

buttplugau

But thats the shitty part

People from their new management managed to get into their accounts and are sending those anons and their messages with the urls to big blogs

So that people will either think they’re fake and report and deleteOr the accounts will go public and they’ll be ambushed

sexatoxbridge

Well I haven’t published any urls…the only message I publicly responded to didn’t have their url and no one can see who I follow so I don’t honestly see what the problem is here

I feel like I made it quite clear that I wouldn’t publish any messages that mentioned any urls because I typically take it to be people trying to promote their own 

blogsbuttplugau

need that message deleted please! Its a simple task that will help us keep them undercover

sexatoxbridge

Um, no. It doesn’t say the URLs, so no.

buttplugau

I understand that thank you, but it’s not that simple

sexatoxbridge

If whoever sent that anon wants to message me themselves and ask me to take it down, fine. But honestly, Kenzie, I think you might be being had by someone

I don’t know everything you know

So please consider this from my point of view

I received multiple messages about these accounts over the past month and have literally never published the URLs. I only followed it yesterday and then got the anon I got today

My post isn’t exposing anything

buttplugau

Okay fine. But please for the sake of all of us here, and them, do not leak anything. You’re a big blog, and they’re trying to use you as a secret weapon

sexatoxbridge

I doubt that highly, but like I said, I don’t intend to give free press to a blog claiming to be Harry Styles. It’s sketchy at best.

buttplugau

And no, I’m not being had thank you. Like you said you don’t know everything I do, but if you did you’d be more worried

Good. Keep that mindset

sexatoxbridge

I mean you’re free to enlighten me

sexatoxbridge

At this point I’m more inclined to believe that you run those accounts than that Harry and Louis do

I mean, going off of logical reasoning, can you see why that would be the obvious answer to this?

buttplugau

Do you really think that I, a fifteen year old girl with a full time school and part time job, has time job has time for all of this drama??? The only reason I’m talking to you is because I’m bedridden sick!! And no, because H and L told me when you followed them, and Hannah, their management angel, called me frantic when she came across that ask

sexatoxbridge

I’ve literally never spoken to you before, so yeah I think any sane person would ask these questions

buttplugau

Now if the people who are the most dangerous to finding their blogs come across that ask, they’ll investigate and actually find them. Do you want them in trouble??I’m trying to protect my friends!

sexatoxbridge

And given that around the time you messaged me “[EDITED OUT]” also posted something it just seems quite coincidental. If Hannah wants to call me, great…but you are literally asking me to take the word of a stranger in a situation that is already so shrouded in lies to begin with.

buttplugau

He’s online and messaging me as we speak. I had to have him change his password because of all of this, and you’re frankly not helping!!

!sexatoxbridge

Literally none of that would have anything to do with me given, as I’ve said repeatedly, I’ve never mentioned or blogged those URLs

Nor do I plan to given how absurd this entire interaction has been

buttplugau

I wouldn’t have messaged you if it didnt. Now is your pride really more important than the safety of these boys?

sexatoxbridge

Well my morals are enough to delete the multiple sex tapes of Briana I’ve been sent…but I hope that you can understand that you are literally giving me nothing of substance to substantiate your claims. You are only asking me to go off of your word, and you are actually just a stranger on the internet.

buttplugau

Fine what proof do you want

sexatoxbridge

You have not given me any valid reason other than your intuition to delete anything

sexatoxbridge

I honestly don’t know because you have told me that you’re taking the word of other strangers that they’re Louis and Harry…If you can convince me why you so firmly believe those blogs to be them, then maybe

buttplugau

I knew history was the single before it was announced

My belief is mainly based off their individual personalities and typing habits

sexatoxbridge

Literally everyone in the UK assumed it would be given its appearance on the UK X Factor

Is your name Kenzie and are you 15?

buttplugau

Believe it or not I have the other two boys as well, and between the personalities, the time zone changes and accuracies, the facts that even I had forgotten

Yes I am thanks

Just go through my selfie tag

sexatoxbridge

No, I believe you’re who you say you are, but I think maybe we should take a look at these accounts together. Did you say that someone actually called you on a phone to tell you to tell me to take this down?

buttplugau

She was hysterical

sexatoxbridge

I want to protect the both of us…and as much as I want to believe you, I also want to make sure that you’re not giving your personal information to someone who isn’t who they say they are

How do you know Hannah? Did she give you a surname? A company she works for?

buttplugau

Yes I know Hannah, yes I know her real last name, yes she worked for fucking modest for the last five years and was switched with the boys to Azoff

Stop QUESTIONING ME

sexatoxbridge

I’m not going to stop questioning you until you convince me you’re not being catfished…which is entirely what this situation looks like, Kenzie

buttplugauI

ts been four months, and I think they would have fucked up pretty badly by now if it wasn’t them

sexatoxbridge

I’m actually quite worried that you’ve given these people your mobile number because honestly  if you’re just going off of what you’ve told me, I’m entirely unconvinced

sexatoxbridge

I don’t think that you’re naive or dumb, but I do think that it’s easy to manipulate people in certain circumstances and I’m just asking you to consider the possibility that this isn’t real

Have you spoken to Harry or Louis in any other capacity than these accounts?

buttplugau

None of the boys have my personal information thank you very much.  And don’t you think I’ve had my doubts?? It literally caused fights! Not to mention I know three other girls who talk to them and everything had added up, no fuck ups no mistakes nothing!! And no, this is so complicated and you wont shut up long enough for me to explain more

sexatoxbridge

I will shut up as long as it takes for you to convince me, honestly…go ahead.

buttplugau

Now here, over the last four months  Ive brought myself to believe because of quite a few things. First was the personalities of the four of them separately. None have changed or altered at all, along with the typing and dialect they use. Then is the timezones, this was big. Since I met them during promo they usually were all in LA same timezone and their activities and sleep patterns were consistent. There were multiple times where id get “ah be right back !” Or they’d go ghost and then boOM red carpet or pap pics! But when they started going off to different countries and shit, their activities changed with time zone.  Sure the first few nights were full of jet lag but then we’d fall into a new routine of chatting for that location. Seriously if these were fans, who would spend all this time, change their sleep schedules to fit locations and shit, and perfect four different personalities just to fuck with people online??? It’s irrational!! Niall, havent seen him since Australia have we?? Fucker was in Indonesia for a few weeks after, and still is really ghostie because he’s traveling and sightseeing. Then there’s Ani and Fleur, Ani is the reason were even talking to them really. Like I said they have the same experience, the same information and jokes and were all interlaced. If you just cannot see how real this is then, I dont know what to tell you. I just want to protect them because they love us (me and my friends who talk to them) and we love them and we cant lose them.

buttplugau

You can talk

sexatoxbridge

Thanks for the permission, but I still don’t understand how you are relying on the word of Tumblr users to substantiate your beliefs.What you’ve said is ture

sexatoxbridge

True*

Why would anyone do that?

But at the same time, I’ve seen way crazier in this fandom

buttplugau

This is a waste of my time

Ill let Hannah deal with yku

Just please, when the articles about them having secret tumblrs gone wrong get written , you’ll remember me

sexatoxbridge

I mean she didn’t know who I was until you started talking to me, so this kind of just substantiates my idea that there is one person running these multiple accounts

buttplugau

You’ll remember me. Thats all.

sexatoxbridge

I’ve literally never seen Tumblr accounts mentioned in the news, nor would I ever believe that it was anything to do with you.

But, nice try. If I’m blocked by certain accounts at least I’ll know who runs them

buttplugau

When they, A-List celebrities get exposed for having secret social media accounts of COURSE its going to be public

And you’re gonna be like “shit they were right!”

sexatoxbridge

I honestly doubt that secret social media accounts will be at the forefront of things hidden from the public if all of this comes out.

buttplugau

Also Hannah was bust panicking because this has been her job for the last year, meanwhile hiding it from her boss and risking her high ranked job. So if you could pull the suspicious stick out of your ass and have a little compassion to listen that would be wonderfulYou are beyond pissing me off, I’m leaving it to Hannah

sexatoxbridge

Well I’ve given her my personal details to get in touch with me with, so if she chooses to get in touch via anything other than vague Tumblr messages then I might consider it.

You’re the one who messaged me, mate.

So not sure what you have to be pissed off about.

buttplugau

I had one simple request,and you made it more than it needed to be

sexatoxbridge

Sorry I’ve pointed out that your story has more holes than Babygate.
