There’s this mormon movie called The Testament that depicts the events before and when Christ appears in the Book of Mormon. It’s a pretty good movie and if you’ve been a member for a while you’ve probably seen it.

However, it is infamous for it’s romantic-subplot, something that is 100% made-up for the movie. Even small children reacts at this.

Now, if you will, imagine the whitest, most heterosexual, forced, woman-with-less-than-one-dimension-to-her, horrifically bad romance that only America could have the stupidity to do. 

The creators of this movie looked at the events in the book, oppression of a people, a son who is dangerously close to going the wrong path, natural disasters that’s been prophesied for hundreds of years, the literal coming of Christ who heals people from their afflictions, and decided that the movie wasn’t interesting enough.

Now in MTC, missionary training center, they have ¨movie nights¨ on Sundays. One can either watch talks from apostles and such or a LDS film. A missionary told me yesterday that when they were showing The Testament, the leaders had to legit go up to the microphone and say ¨there is romance in this movie that has nothing to do with the Book of Mormon and should not be given a second thought. If you laugh, you will be escorted out.¨  If you laugh, you will be escorted out.

So the scene where the subplot begins comes around and everyone is dead quiet. Imagine seeing a room full of men in suits and women in formal wear staring emotionless at a screen. The man finds this woman by the river, filling up a jar, and strikes a conversation worthy of youtube cringe compilations. You hear someone snort and the leader shoots a glare at the person.

Then it’s time for the man to leave and the woman says ¨you didn’t even ask for my name.¨ The man replies ¨i already know your name¨.

It explodes. A lecture hall full of God’s servants loses it over this romance that even conservative Utah Mormons realizes is bad. The leader has to run up to the mic and order everyone to be quiet, a poor exasperated person who’s been forced to watch this gag-worthy subplot time and time again, to hear the symphony of people laughing at it’s stupidity countless times.

The saving grace of this movie is that the scene when Christ appears is so heart-warming, you feel yourself getting cleansed from that horrifying heterosexuality.

anonymous asked:

i am a nonbinary teen and i bought a binder that ended up being too small. i still wore it even though i knew that, and i think i damaged my ribs and possibly my back from it. i haven't worn the binder for about a month now, but the pain is still there. i can't tell my parents because they aren't really accepting of me being trans, so what can i do? will it heal over time?

Charlie says:

whether your parents are supportive or not, I think you should still ask them to see a doctor if you can.  While it might be unethical on this blog to encourage lying, I would say something else happened; there are a million reasons your ribs and back could be hurting.  This is really a good idea in the long run to save yourself from problems that could potentially grow much bigger! As someone who needed surgery once or twice from not telling my parents about my medical problems, ‘healing over time’ is just a possibility where you can’t chance it.

anonymous asked:

i wanna believe we're free to practice witchcraft. i want to. but we're not. idk what you're doing. we can't have sex with people we're not married to, we can't party, we can't swear, we can't practice craft. it breaks my heart, but my mom says it's just breaking the sinful part that christ meant to save us from. i'm working on choking out that part of myself. you should, too. save yourself and go back to our god.

Hey friend. I understand where you’re coming from; I really do. Because honestly, I’ve been there. I tried doing that. I tried being the perfect Evangelical child. I tried so hard and even wound up with a Biblical Studies degree from a high ranking evangelical university. I served others to the point of seriously damaging my own well being. I know Koine Greek well enough to extrapolate various biblical arguments and analyze them and the accuracy of interpretation.

I tried so hard to save myself in order to be God’s Perfect Daughter and do you know what it felt like? Personality prison.

My sister and her husband once hid the fact that they celebrated the New Year with a glass of wine from my parents because for a while my mom wasn’t sure that Christians should drink alcohol. I hid my own sexuality from myself for years. I hid my anger, my frustrations, my questions. Following all the right rules didn’t make me a better Christian, it made me a sneakier one. And it loaded me with guilt and shame because anytime I thought I messed up I assumed God was just…frustrated by how horrible I was. I couldn’t stand how unbiblical I was, why would God even bother with me? It didn’t help that I’d developed anxiety and depression from the age of 16 and didn’t get help because no, I was too good, too kind and caring, I got good grades, I looked good.

That supposed salvation condemned me to hide myself from myself. And when I got angry about things like child abuse and racism and homophobia in the church, my mom basically told me that I’m reading too many negative things about the church and that I need to be more involved with the good churches that aren’t like those other bad ones because Not All Christians are like that.

Do you know what choking yourself of these things does? It hurts you. It keeps you from breathing. If your salvation comes at the cost of enjoying your life and yourself, what is it worth? I tried so hard to choke all those parts of me and it eventually broke me. It put a wedge between me and my family, between me and God.

Strangely enough, it was discovering ritualistic faith/Christian witchcraft that began to mend the bond between me and God. The day I decided to explore it, I had a dream where I watched Jesus come to life out of stone. It renewed my faith, my desire to know God as She truly is, not just as what I was told to believe.

You tell me I should save myself, but Jesus already did. And I use my craft to connect to God, to pray to Her, to love others and myself. I use it as a form of worship. I don’t need to try to be anyone but myself to be saved, to be free.

Maybe it will be different for you. I hope so. I hope you are able to live authentically to yourself within the church. But for me, Christian witchcraft brought me back to God. Leaving evangelicalism was a healthy and necessary choice for me. I found freedom and laughter. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. I have a fiancé, soon to be my wife. (And for some people I’m already going to hell for that lol. If I'a already going to hell, I’m gonna go with a lot of love in my heart for myself and others and be true to myself.) I have friends who encourage me and listen to me and don’t just say “I’ll pray for you.” They let me talk about my feelings and beliefs, even if they don’t agree with me on some of them.

If God is love, shouldn’t that love be freeing rather than confining? If God is love, then why do people insist that love means changing who you are in order for God to love you, in order to be worthy? If God is love, why does that mean that it’s God’s way or eternal suffering, that God is always right and we are always wrong? Is that truly love? If your God was your significant other or parental figure, would it be called love, or would it show signs of abuse? If God is love, why do I feel so miserable following every letter of the Bible, every ideal of the Perfect Christian?

I hope you have a better experience than me. But for me, this is what freedom looks like. I light a votive candle and burn a sigil asking God to help me love myself. I use the herbs of the earth God has made for us to celebrate life, petition them and God to aid me. I get to take part in the act of creation.

And if I am wrong, I am wrong. But I do not believe that living authentically and enjoying yourself is contrary to the love of God. I am human. I am flawed. And I love that.

Sorry for writing such a long response. If you read this whole thing, good on you! I wish you the very best, but I am afraid I cannot return to what once damaged my spirit. I pray that your relationship with God only deepens and allows you to be true to yourself. Take care, friend.

musicislife11  asked:

I'm hoping you might be able to answer this for me. I have read the original four books but I cannot remember this. Did Magnus and actually say that he wasn't going to date anybody after Alec or something to that nature after Alec dies. I've heard this from people but can't remember if it's just something people are misquoting or if it's actually in the books. Do you have any memory of it? Thank you in advance.

Hey! Yes, he does says there´s not going to be anyone else after Alec, it´s in the fourth book, after they save Simon and Jace from lilith. Here´s the quote:

“But you were angry,” said Magnus. “I knew you were. That’s why I was so worried. Running off and putting yourself in danger just because you’re angry with me—”
“I’m a Shadowhunter,” Alec said. “Magnus, this is what I do. It’s not about you. Next time fall in love with an insurance adjuster or—”
“Alexander,” said Magnus. “There isn’t going to be a next time.” He leaned his forehead against Alec’s, goldgreen eyes staring into blue.

I hope that was helpful, thatnks for considering me!

I can't save myself this time

a racing mind and shaky hands
is what will lead you to
your mothers medicine cabinet
at four in the morning.
and you promise yourself
this won’t ever happen again.
so next sunday night,
when you find yourself
standing in front of the cabinet,
you look at yourself in the mirror.
you’ve become a stranger.
where did these bags under my eyes
come from, and why am I so itchy?
all I know is nothing feels right
nothing feels wholesome -
so you try to fix it - the feeling that
something is missing.
but all you end up with
is more problems, bruises, and heart ache.

Raph:

  • He’s kind of embarrassed and happy at the same time, but mostly embarrassed.  No one’s had to save his scaly ass before, except his brothers maybe but rarely, so to see you kick ass for him, it makes him feel less powerful you could say.  But he admires you for what you did nonetheless.
  • He will not REST until he finds out how you know how to fight like that!  Not only was it amazing to watch but he never saw that side of you and was very interested in your skills.
  • You want to turn the guy on so bad he can’t even stand up?  Well, this is it, ‘cause if you’re doing something similar to that fighting and he sees, his toothpick snaps in half in his mouth…

Donnie:

  • Thank God for Don’s genius skills; he has the time to record the whole thing!  That shocked expression on his face slowly turns into a grin he watches what’s in front of him; his girlfriend can kick ass!
  • He helps though, getting up quickly from the ground and going to your aid.  He’ll ask about your skill once the two of your are out of harm.
  • He asks a couple of times every week to show him your fighting skills again, very shyly though.  You get a big smooch whenever you do.

Mikey:

  • OH MY GOD is his reaction.  Smiling, fanboying, squealing.  You have to check behind you to make sure he’s okay.
  • And he ends up kicking ass with you, cause if anyone could see the two of you right now, you’d be superheroes, and what could be more romantic than kicking ass together?
  • So many kisses, to tell you you looked amazing and did great at kicking their asses.  He proposes to go out and find trouble, just so he can see you fight again.
  • Ikuto: How am I supposed to convince these people that I'm on their side? What would Tsukasa do?
  • Ikuto (as Tsukasa): Ikuto, you must look within yourself to save yourself from your other self. Only then will your true self reveal itself.
  • Ikuto (as himself): Even when I'm talking for him I can't figure out what he means. What would Utau do?
  • Ikuto (as Utau): Listen Guardians, I can join your group or I can do something unspeakably horrible to you and your friends. Your choice.
Some Lessons That 2016 Taught Me...
  • 1: it's not worth your time if you're sacrificing your happiness - no matter what the reason, whether it's a relationship, a job, a habit. If whatever you're doing or whoever you're with doesn't bring you happiness then it's time to move on.
  • 2: be honest with you're feelings. So much time is wasted on fearing what you feel. If you love someone, tell them. If someone is bothering, express how what they're doing bothers you. So much bullshit can be avoided by being honest with yourself, how you feel, and with others.
  • 3: if it bothers you, do something about it. Too much time is wasted on focusing your energy on things that can be changed. So, change them. Our time on this speck of blue is so short that it shouldn't be wasted so foolishly. Focus on your goals and how to get there and if there's annoying shit in the way, come up with a plan and do something about it.
  • 4: surround yourself by supportive people. As I say this, I'm not only referring to people who will says "Things will get better". Kinds words can't prepare you for the storm. You need real advice from people who won't throw forced sympathy at you. You need to support, the kind that can be sweet and understanding but also strong. Those people are the ones who will be the most help even in the shittiest of situations.
  • 5: although I am a strong believer of #treatyoself, sometimes it's best to save up. Put money aside, whether it be loose change or 15 percent of your paycheck. That extra finance can come in handy when you need it most, like when groceries or gas is low, or an unexpected bill pops up.
  • 6: when you're feeling extremely low, listen to some therapeutic songs. Create a playlist that takes you through the motions of being sad and eventually overcoming that sadness. In other words, have the beginning of this playlist feature depressing songs (i.e. Cancer by MCR) and gradually turn those songs into one's that make you smile (i.e. 24K Magic by Bruno Mars). The concept of this playlist will give you a chance to cry and think about what's making you sad before slowly cheering you up.
  • 7: remember that every failure is just one step closer to being the person you need to be. Never take your failures are losses. These experiences are what's needed to be the person you aspire to be. No one is truly perfect and therefore you will make mistakes and fuck up and that's totally okay. You need these crap moments to build character, to experience humility, and to be sympathetic for others around you.
  • 8: try new things. And no, I'm not talking about drastic life changes. I mean you can do a drastic life change if you want, but what I'm referring to is quite simple. For instance, at your favorite restaurant try a different dish instead of your usual. Hell, try a completely different restaurant just to broaden your taste palette. My point is that you don't want to fall into predictability nor do you want a life filled with impulsive spontaneity. Find balance, but keep an open mind about it.
  • 9: judgement from others do not define you. Don't let anyone try to pigeonhole your character. You define yourself - in the way you hold yourself, speak, your actions; all of this is what makes you 'you' and no one else can say otherwise. So ignore what people say about you or what they dont because you are the only one you need to please.
  • 10: there is a HUGE difference between being selfish and looking out for yourself. I was in a situation where a friend of mines called me selfish because I wasn't in the mood to hear her problems. I know that there can be lengthy debate on how I am an asshole and selfish, but when you listen to someone's problems day in and day out and its always about the same thing, and no matter how much you try to help this person they never change, thus remaining in the same predicament, shit gets old. And at the time, I was going through my own problems, so I had to distance myself from more drama so I could focus on changing my current situation. Moral of the story is, it's okay to put yourself first. It doesn't make you an asshole in my book.

no but Calum being a demon and coming on earth and his target is you but he watches you and he realises that his tarnished soul belongs to you and only you and day by day he falls in love with you and he spends time with you and you fast realise that he is in every meaning of the word your soulmate but he knows that he can’t be with you but he can’t be without you and you’d have to sacrifice everything to be with him but before any decisions can be made his demon buddies Michael and Luke appear with their own soulmates in tow and so they pull him back down and the girls look over you before they follow and then driven insane by your need for him you commit an act against God and nature and you murder someone before realising and in your despair you take your own life but what you did was an act of love but as you reach heavens gates you beg and cry to be allowed with him because you don’t want to live in a place where he’s not there but they force you through the gate and there he’s stood, white wings with some rumpled black feathers and you throw yourself into his arms crying but he’s so happy because your absolute love for him saved him from eternal damnation and hatred and he couldn’t love you more even if he tried.

anonymous asked:

Oliver got her sister "killed" after cheating on her. She has every right to lash our. BUT despite that she still said she was sorry and wanted to be there for him. Now you bring up Laurel during her depression where she STILL said she was sorry.

True story: when I woke up this morning, I did the same thing I do every morning. I checked my email and then I browsed Twitter (and then I read some fic but that’s not relevant to this story so I’ll just wash over that bit).  I saw these anons, smirked, and then headed over to Twitter where I posted this: 

I got several lovely replies that made me chuckle.  Thank you, Twitter crew. You guys are real. 

Honestly? I kinda wish I’d written down last night exactly what I expected to receive in my inbox because it’s uncanny how spot on I was.  Right down to the blaming my hate for Laurel on being an Olicity fan (that’s supposed to say “bitter”, not “biter” in that second ask there). I mean, the whole reason I stuck in the bit about forming this opinion before Felicity was even introduced was to underline that my feelings for Laurel had nothing to do with Olicity (and vice versa), but that’s fine.  This person clearly can’t spell, I’m not sure I should hold them up to reading comprehension as well.  Plus, I suppose I should give props to them for finding then post since I went to lengths to assure that it wouldn’t end up in the tags.  Which tells me they go looking for anti LL posts.  Which, omg you guys, that’s so depressing.  Stop.  Embrace the light.

I have a few minutes so I thought, hey, why not address these?  The first anon starts off with saying that LL had very good reason to be upset.  I DON’T DISAGREE.  Here’s the reading comprehension thing again.  Go back to my post and read what I said.  Oh here, I’ll just excerpt it for you: 

You see, LL had this undeniably sympathetic situation and somehow STILL MANAGED to be completely unsympathetic. 

I stand by what I said.  Because she wasted the sympathy that the audience wanted to have for her for her very righteous position by saying some of the most hurtful things.  You think her apology towards the end of the episode made it all okay?  How about the next day when he’d just got done recounting his father’s dead in front of a crowded courtroom and she basically told him the same thing again?  How about all season 1 when she continually told him what a terrible person was, how he couldn’t possibly be the Hood because he’s far too selfish?  I get it: some people lash out and then apologize.  Sometimes, that works.  Sometimes, it doesn’t.  In Laurel’s case, in my esteem, it does not work because her reactions to Oliver show me a side of her personality that I find utterly repulsive.  

Here’s the thing (and I’m about to get a little more personal than I usually do on this blog but bear with me): I’ve faced loss in my life.  Terrible, tragic, gut-wrenching loss.  And in the darkest moments, when my heart felt like it was being torn from my chest, I remember having one devastatingly clear thought: 

I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.

I’m not a hero.  I don’t have some grand comic book destiny, a leather jacket or a hood or a mask or anything waiting for me after I’ve endured my crucible.  I’m just an average person.  I’m not more special, no more kind and compassionate than anyone else out there.  But believe me when I say: when you’ve endured the depths that this life has to offer, the last thing you want is for more people to suffer that same fate. That doesn’t make you a good person, it makes you a decent person. Laurel did not show that quality in the slightest.  And they expect me to believe that she’s a hero?  HOW?!

I’m not saying that she had to forgive Oliver or even not be angry with him.  Again, if you notice my initial post, my issue was how she expressed that anger.  Because the things she said to him, both in the pilot and the episode(s) that followed crossed a line for me.  And it wasn’t just about Oliver and the horrible things he did to her and her family.  What about Thea?  What about Moira?  Laurel was basically saying that she wanted them to suffer as well, all because she’d been betrayed.  Is it somehow better to excuse it as “she wasn’t thinking of them right then”?  Because for me, its not.  

On top of all of that, I was supposed to believe she was still in love with him?  HAHAHA… no.  Everything I’ve said is based on her just treating him like a fellow human being.  Would you ever say that to someone that you love with all your heart?  God, you guys.  I honestly don’t know if any of you could actually say that you would, but if you can then I just find that so … sad.  Legitimately SAD.  

As for the rest of what these anons brought up: I get that they’re trying to rehabilitate her character but I’ve yet to really see Laurel do anything that isn’t at least slightly informed by her innate selfishness.  I haven’t seen her have a truly heroic moment.  I just got done rewatching all three seasons, believe me, I looked.  I wanted to give her a chance this season but it was too little, too late.
