i don't care how many gay friends she says she has

anonymous asked:

What Voltron ships do you think have a chance or don't have a chance at becoming canon?

Pretty much 100% guaranteed in my book: hunay. Shay is the one who really inspires Hunk to stand up for a cause, and it’s her bravery that helps Hunk find his own courage. How much she means to him is what sets off the balmera arc, which is integral to his character development. He says that the balmerans made him see the war in a whole new way, that he finally realizes that there are countless other people and planets that Zarkon has conquered and it’s the paladins’ mission to free them. The way he’s always so concerned about her and the others tease him for his crush is pretty obvious and incredibly sweet. I don’t think they’ll just put Hunk with someone else after that. Hunk and “the rock he admires very much” are adorable together and I’m so happy for them 

I’ve written like a hundred meta on this, so I’ll try to brief, but–yeah, I think sheith has a really good shot. Time and again they are established as the most important people in each other’s lives (“your friend desperately wants to see you,” “it’s good to have you back,” “it’s good to be back,” “that really stayed with you, didn’t it?” “Shiro was the only one who never gave up on me, I won’t give up on him,” ect). The way Keith is always running to Shiro’s rescue is characteristic of the traditional knight and princess trope, and Kuron is even so bold as to tease him about it–“How many times are you gonna have to save me before this is over?” “As many times as it takes.” 

The way Keith has so many grief-stricken outbursts over losing Shiro and acted as if no one else cared about him the way Keith did–it really feels like Keith is mourning a over. The way everyone else urges him to move on while he’s still carrying a torch for Shiro only serves to further support this. It’s also important to consider that “Keith latches onto Shiro at times because Shiro’s sort of the only thing that can really calm him down and keep him in check.” Because we know Keith’s volatile emotions stem from being galra, and Shiro is literally the only one that soothe that side of him. On it’s own this trope is romantic, but we also see it reflected in Zarkon’s relationship with Honerva as well. “Honerva has really softened you up old friend.” There are so many parallels between sheith and zaggar, and I don’t see why they’d do that if sheith wasn’t also meant to be interpreted as romantic. 

The framing, exclusive privacy, and tone of many of their scenes also feel exceptionally intimate and romantic (see: their first scene together, that part where Keith promises that nothing’s gonna happen to Shiro and Shiro gives him the fondest look, the BOM trial, the hug, how the season 3 reunion was exclusively between the two of them and complete with longing looks as they slowly drift into each other’s orbit, the bedroom scene, ect). At this point I literally can’t imagine either being paired with anyone else. And even if they are, I’m beyond the point where I would be able to rationalize it. They’ll always love each other first and foremost. And the creators have honestly talked about lgbt representation quite a bit. They’re so invested in it that, I think if they were to make a gay ship canon, sheith is our best bet. 

A ship I also think has a really good chance: allurance. I’ve made a few posts on that already, and you can check this one here for a more detailed explanation. But basically, I think season 3 went out of its way to really develop their dynamic. It’s not Keith who hands of Red to Lance and tells him he’s that should pilot, it’s Allura. And this distinction is quite interesting. It feels a lot like how Shiro left Black to Keith (and I mean, I think I’ve already made it clear how I see their dynamic as romantic). Allura also tells Lance about her very personal history with Red and how she wants Lance to carry on that legacy. She could’ve had this conversation with Keith at any time, but she didn’t. It’s Lance who she opens up to and sees her father in. It’s Lance who she look to for advice (”What would Lance do?”) and it’s Lance who looks out for Allura during The Hunted while Keith was ready to leave her behind and couldn’t care less. 

And we also get that sweet moment where Allura only explains what her armor means to Lance. And then Lance hands off his bayard to Allura and says “If I had to lose Blue to anyone, I’m glad it was you.” And Allura looks so fond at hearing that, her gaze softens and I find it hard to believe she isn’t at least a bit taken with him. The way their hands touch when they exchange the bayard and Lance expresses how much Allura means to him, how he’d rather it be her than anyone else? Yeah, we never get any scene like this between Keith and Lance. It feels intimate in the same way a lot of Shiro and Keith’s interactions are. And if Lance or Allura were to end up with anybody, I think this ship just makes the most sense. It would also fit the “slow burn” profile for Lance’s love interest Jeremy mentioned. 

A ship that I thought was more promising in season 2 but now feel like it doesn’t make much sense: ka/llura. It feels like they could’ve been going somewhere after the galra arc, but then the ship just burns out and loses all momentum. During season 3, I think there was a clear divide between them. The only episode that felt ka/llura to me was A Holy in the Sky–but even then, that felt more like a homage to 80′s voltron than anything. I honestly can’t forgive the way Keith completely turned a blind eye to her safety in The Hunted.

And if they were ever going to establish Keith with another love interest, I think now during Shiro’s disappearance would have been best the time. So that they could be there for Keith when he needed some support the most, so they can affirm that there are others who care for him and he doesn’t be alone. But no, that’s not how it is. The most meaningful interaction between Keith and Allura during that time is Allura reaffirming how Shiro is irreplaceable to him. It’s not about Allura’s feelings for Keith, but rather acknowledging Keith’s feelings for Shiro. 

Narratively speaking, Shiro is literally in the position of Keith’s love interest during his leadership arc. And this is further underscored by how Keith doesn’t go to Allura or Lance or anyone else when he wants to talk. He goes to the Black lion and tries speaking to Shiro. Because even if Shiro’s gone and everyone else is right there, he still shoves the other paladins aside and reaches out for the one he lost. That’s love. 

A ship that I can kinda see happening: plance (pidgance?? I dunno, I’ve seen lots of different names for it, sorry). Anyway, I honestly got the feeling that Pidge might have a bit of a one-sided crush on Lance. She’s the one that gets the most annoyed by Lance flirting with other girls, and it’d be an interesting dynamic to show Lance developing a romantic relationship with the one girl he never actually flirted with. 

And I mean, Lance was the first person paladin to try and reach out to her. Even though she blew him off, I think she was still kind of touched by the gesture. And we do still see Lance being protective of her at the garrison, so I think it’s possible she could’ve starting feeling something. I think it’s likely it might go unrequited–maybe something like Sokka and Toph–but it’s possible it might head somewhere later.

People really need to be more fucking careful of what they say. Especially online. The internet is not the place to express your “opinions”, there are so many impressionable kids out there. Your Snapchat story is not the place to share your thoughts on bi people, your instagram is not the place to comment about how there’s “only two genders!!1!” And don’t even get me started on fucking tumblr. It can be a great place to meet people who share your experiences, but no newly questioning 13 year old should have to come across “aces aren’t valid” when all they want is a label to hold onto.

five people who hugged michelle (ao3 link)

1.     gwen stacy

When Michelle is a freshman in college, she has a bit of a crisis. She and Peter have been best friends for around two years now, and she’s been nursing a healthy crush on him for a bit longer than that. And in their whole friendship/crush existence, Peter has only ever liked one girl: Liz Toomes. (Which, if she’s being honest, Michelle probably had a crush on Liz too. So she gets it.) This is all a roundabout way of her saying that she’s been able to have a crush on Peter Parker and not do anything about it because their relationship to each other and mostly to other people always stayed the same.

But in their freshman year of college, Peter Parker gets a lab partner for intro physics. She seems like a kind, genuine, funny, good person. She’s friendly and intelligent. And whenever Michelle makes the trek to MIT to join Peter for lunch before lab, Gwen always asks how she’s doing and takes a genuine interest in MJ and her life. So, Gwen Stacy is exactly Peter’s type (if Liz is a crush to go by), and MJ has a mini crisis about it.

Peter and Gwen don’t start dating though. At least not for the first month or so of school. But MJ is worried. And then one Wednesday while she’s doodling in the middle of her freshman seminar (it focuses on human rights and MJ is actually a big fan of the class, but That Kid™ is speaking right now and he’s absolutely insufferable), she feels her pocket buzz. It’s a text from Peter.

anonymous asked:

My bff's mom has this "vibe" that can detect things about people. Like know if someone is liar or things like that. We had known each other for 4 years now, and that vibe has never failed. If she says x thing about someone, it's because it's true; perhaps they won't show it now, but they do. So, when we got into BTS -last year- my friend showed to her mom photos of the boys. When she got to JM's selcas, she just said "he's gay". (1)

My friend was shocked. She said “mom you haven’t see JM properly, this is just a photo of his face”. But her mom kept saying he was gay. I trust that women with my life, girl. I remember another jikook shipper said the same about JM and that JK is the type of person that falls in love with whoever; he doesn’t care about sex. If it happens, he just follow it. And I know how that feels because it happened to me- I am girl. (2)

hello there pretty ~

i don’t know anything about your friend’s mom, so i can’t really say that i believe her, but idefinitely agree with her when it comes to what i think about jimin’s sexuality; 

there’s this thing called gaydar and from what you’re saying; your friend’s mom’s gaydar is pretty strong so that’s probably what makes what she said believable to you. (she was probably right about what she thought about people sexualities several times before) i don’t know if my “gaydar” is as strong as hers , but it  definitely exists (i have one lol), and i do think that jimin could be gay. i think he’s not attracted in any way to the opposite gender; there’re so many reciepts (like that time in ahl when those girls came in and everyone was freaking out and he was chill af not giving a single f***, but when it was tony who was there he was …..well he wasn’t the same,he seemed attracted to him , he kept interacting with him and saying his name he was basically all over him) there’re other reciepts of course .

i don’t take “the stereotypes” into consideration when questioning someone’s sexuality though (which is what i don’t know about your friend’s mom maybe she did maybe she didn’t) 

i don’t really understand what you’re trying to label jungkook as ,but i do think that he didn’t really know that he was attracted to jimin or that he was falling for him until it happened, i wouldn’t say it was exactly “easy” for him to really accept that part about himself ,and embrace the fact that he likes jimin at first; he probably went through alot because of that , but he deinitely accepted himself after all.. 

about the “he doesn’t care about the gender” part; i don’t really know about that! since he hasn’t shown any interest in girls in general till now, people say it’s because he’s “shy” or whatever , but he didn’t show interest even when he was asked to describe his ideal type (he literally describes jimin every single time) so i don’t know! 

he could be gay or bi i can’t really tell.

shreder109  asked:

What are some ways you can make two male characters be like amazing friends, i don't actually have many in real life so i'm trying to make the two inseparable to the point where people think they might be gay but they aren't you know? Any tips?

While gender can play a role in how we interact with others, if two guys are going to be really close friends then they can act like any pair of friends regardless of gender. I can give some tips on friendship in general but it’s really up to you how much your characters play into gender roles.

The “ways” to make friends really depend so much on the specific characters that I can’t give much advice there, bit I can tell you some things about what makes good friendships:

- Your characters need to trust one another. This can be shown with small things like “If I ask him to pay the bills, he’ll do it on time” to bigger things like “If I were dying of kidney failure, he’d donate a kidney for me”. 

- They should listen to each other, and not just passively. Sure, friends can play “the wall” for a rant, but really close friends can go beyond that 

- They don’t have to like everything about each other, but they have to respect everything about each other. Related to how friends should listen, I have a long-time friend who has very different views from me on venting. I hate being vented to unless you want to end the conversation looking for a solution. She recognizes this and respects me enough not to vent to me unless it’s something serious. She also respects and accepts that I will always try and give aid, not just listen, even if it’s not 100% of what she wants. She accepts me for who I am and works with it. 

- They should be able to let down their walls in each other’s company. Someone who cracks a lot of jokes to cover up self-worth issues may become more serious and honest around a close friend. Someone more serious may start joking around with a close friend. 

- Generally, men are socialized to be more action-heavy than word-heavy with expressing their affection or care, but it really depends on the individual characters. 

- Physical affection isn’t as necessary as the other things, but it can help. This is non-sexual touching like goodbye hugs, fixing a messy clothing item, a pat on the back, etc.

- Generally, men are socialized to be okay with “doing nothing” with someone for bonding moments. This is where the “crack open a cold one” bonding moment comes from.

- They should be honest with each other. Lies never make for a good relationship, though there is sometimes gray area here for personal judgement on “do I lie to make this person feel better?” depending on the severity of the issue. There’s a difference between a friend saying (lying) “don’t worry, nobody saw” when a character has an embarrassing moment vs saying (lying) “I never spoke to John” if “John” has been causing issues. 

- They should feel important to the other, like their thoughts and opinions matter and that they’re prioritized and considered in plans and other interactions.

That’s what I can think of right now, but I invite others (especially guys with close guy friends) to reply/reblog this with some more details. My perspective is not 100% aligned with the question, so I gave what I could!

Good luck with your friendship!

anonymous asked:

iridiscentao*tumblr*com/post/147235859797/sorry-but-if-you-dont-ship-kaistal-or-kaisoo-why I don't know what to say tbh, she doesn't know what she is talking about, she knows nothing about kaisoo yet arguing about how wrong we are!

She talks about how bad must Krys feel… but what if it’s actually Kyungsoo who has to live with the fact that the whole Korea thinks his boyfriend is dating someone else. I KNOW this sounds like some fanfiction but hell, they cannot tell me this what we see is not real. 

Their only argument is that SM, Shady Mofos, confirmed them to be dating and everything else doesn’t really make sense. Yes, they have photos of KxK leaving this restaurant but JI doesn’t even look happy? Restaurant which Jung sisters visit quite often? And those photos look so staged? Tho some sources that know KxK said how KxK love quiet places. Then why the hell would they just go there if there is a great possibility of somebody seeing them? JI isn’t stupid. He knows what happened with Baek_yeon. Also, didn’t Jess say that she told Krys to be careful?  Also, they took those photos a month before revealing KxK? They kept it a secret over a whole month? And that is the only thing. From then we see no photos, no proof (even rumours were confirmed to be fake) of them meeting again. And they can’t even say how busy JI and Krys are because they had this ‘photoshoot’ during time when they were extremely busy. And don’t let me start about that post from 2012… 

There are so many proofs they just don’t want to see. 

They don’t even consider the possibility of Kaisoo being real. For them, it’s a clear fantasy. For them, it’s impossible for idols to be gay. 

Even if they saw Kaisoo making out, they’d probably say they were practicing for JI’s sake so he would kiss Krys properly. 

Yeah sure, this is what friends do…

And this is how friends react…

Miyokichi “Hate”

I don’t like when people hate on Miyokichi just because she gets in the way of their OTP (she really doesn’t IMO). And her hurt is totally understandable this episode. I think that Miyo was a good friend to Kiko and I think he has been kind of selfish towards her. He always talks to her about himself and his insecurities but he never asks about her life and worries. In a way he was using her. BUT I do think Miyo was kind of using Kiko as well. Though I feel sympathy for her because of her limited geisha status. It was clear to me that Miyo saw Kiko as a means to escape her station in life. This is why she wanted him to rise in his Rakugo status and why Kiko asked her not to call him “Sensei”.

There were things about Miyo that never sat well with me. I didn’t like when she said “you can’t get out of this one” followed by Kiko backed into a corner while Miyo “teaches” him how to kiss. That scene was so awkward/uncomfortable for me. Most of their relationship is basically Miyo pressuring Kiko to hang out with her or to touch her despite Kiko’s obvious discomfort, distance and attempts to avoid her. You could say that Miyo was so in love with Kiko that she was blind to Kiko’s discomfort at her many insistent advances. BUT, you could also say that Miyo was so caught up in the idea of such a sophisticated/different man as Kiko being her lover that she never bothered to ask about his true feelings on their “romantic” relationship. IMO, Miyo wanted Kiko as a boyfriend regardless of Kiko’s comfort or actual feelings. When she discovers he doesn’t open up to her but does to Sukeroku she doesn’t give him space and then ask about his feelings. Instead she pulls Sukeroku away and lies down on Kiko’s lap without his permission. We can see his displeasure when he looks away and complains. She feels entitled to the emotional intimacy that Kiko shares with Sukeroku even though Kiko does not owe her that at all.

First, Kiko has known Sukeroku since childhood and he has only known Miyo for less than a year, he would predictably be more intimate with Sukeroku. She is overstepping Kiko’s boundaries without his consent. Secondly, it isn’t that Miyo doesn’t deserve Kiko’s intimacy it is just that ONLY Kiko can decide who he feels comfortable with. It is not something that can or should be forced. Yet, Miyo keeps barging into his life regardless of his true desires and personal space/comfort. She doesn’t really ask for his consent. Yes, he “agrees” to hang out with her, even “lets” her kiss him but he has never voiced affirmative consent to being physically/emotionally intimate with her in the way she keeps pressuring him to be. (The State University of New York states “silence or lack of resistance, in and of itself, does not demonstrate consent.”)  Even when he opens up to her about the play and she invites herself to do his makeup he instantly regrets it. I think that Kiko knows what Miyo wants and knows that he can never be that for her.

Miyo wants “alone time” with Kiko, but he is more content when he can spend “group time” with Miyo and Sukeroku 

Kiko never agreed to be her boyfriend so he doesn’t owe her romantic interactions/alone time/ dates. I think he saw her as a friend. I do think he wasn’t a very good friend. He should have been honest with her about his feelings, I agree. Yet, I can still sympathize with him. I am like Kiko in that I find it VERY hard to say no to people. So, I can relate so much to how Kiko went along with Miyo’s pressuring despite his discomfort. Plus, his master set their relationship up so there might be pressure there to appear as if he is entertaining Miyo. Also, Kiko could be a gay guy trying to keep up the appearance of heterosexuality. In all cases Kiko is still not a good friend and I do feel bad for Miyo but I also feel sympathy with Kiko. 

There is also the possibility that Miyo loves the “idea” of Kiko more than the actual Kiko. She was supportive when he was struggling but in my opinion she definitely wanted something out of it. @devilcastlescans compared Miyo to a “nice guy” in that she acts nice and friendly but she always wants something in return that is not platonic. “Nice guys” are usually only nice in return for romantic/sexual favors. Miko does start to feel entitled to Kiko’s romantic love and doesn’t bother to discover what Kiko actually wants from their relationship. This also adds to Miyo’s desire to rise up in the social ranks. She proposes to Kiko that he should be an actor instead of doing Rakugo. But, how much is this Miyo wanting to support Kiko and how much of it is her wanting to take Kiko away from his old life and mold him into her successful lover unburdened by thoughts of Sukeroku. After all, most of Kiko’s conversations with her about Rakugo were also about Sukeroku. And if she really did take Kiko’s feelings into account she would know that Rakugo and the family he found there is very dear to his heart. It isn’t something he would just abandon to become an actor. In the end one can say that both Kiko and Miyo use and mistreat each other.

Lastly, I have seen the manga scans but I don’t know Japanese so I only got part of what was happening. I am curious if the manga paints Miyo in a sympathetic light even after what she did for her “love” of Kiko in volume 8. Is there more details on her status as a geisha and why she is so desperate? Was Sukeroku mean/abusive towards her? (I really hope not T_T).

In the case of Miyo “hate” I think it is more complicated than shippers being salty. I don’t hate Miyo. However, I can understand some people’s dislike of her and her forceful ways. I think there are legitimate parts of Miyo that people can have issues with regardless of who they ship. I still don’t hate her but I can’t fully love her because of the reasons I listed and because of what appears to happen in the manga. Then again this is only a testament to her complexity as a character. I also started to fall a little out of love with Sukeroku this episode and I can recognize Kiko’s coldness. All the characters are not perfect and that is a good thing.

Submission

I’m probably going to regret bringing this up, but I’d like to comment on your feelings on the ‘down with cis’ post from a while ago. I’m going to try and be civil, but I make no promises. I understand your thoughts on how ‘minorities have often ended up becoming the majority’, and, in all honesty, I can see what you mean (for example, Christians were often persecuted by Jewish extremists until it gathered a larger following).

However, that is no excuse for the things that cisgender people have done to transgender people. When a trans person says “Down with cis”, they are mainly using it as a sort of defense mechanism, a way to get back at cis people without major repercussions (though this often backfires and cis people end up calling us out for it anyway). Meanwhile, cis people are constantly allowed to make jokes about us and the things we go through and how we’re ‘disgusting’ and 'abominations’ and so on, and if we try to defend ourselves, we’re told we’re 'being too sensitive’, and to 'lighten up, it’s just a joke’. Cis people are also allowed to murder us, and get away scot-free, by claiming the 'Trans Panic Defense’, a legal loophole that states that if a cis person kills a trans person, they can say that they did it out of fear and anger and couldn’t control their actions, meaning that several boys and girls are murdered for no reason except for ignorant assholes who think they can decide when somebody lives or dies.

You people are able to do whatever you want to us, with little to no repercussions, and yet when we tell a simple joke, we’re the ones in the wrong.

Now, I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you’re not intending to be transphobic, and, to be fair, you haven’t done anything too bad yet, if anything bad at all. It’s simply society and how our society treats things like this, teaching us right from the womb that trans people are there to be mocked and shamed and eradicated. However, I would also like to suggest that you consider another person’s viewpoint, especially when that person/group of people is the one the post is about. Cis people’s feelings do not count when we are talking about trans people’s lives and experiences.

Now, as for trans people taking Undertale and using it to 'spew hateful comments’, I do agree that the main message of the game is acceptance and unity, and calling someone out for who they are is wrong and it’s wrong to use a game like that for such a purpose. But again, it’s a joke being used as a way to vent, to strike back at people who have harmed us in so many ways when all we ask is that, at the very LEAST, you stop killing us. You’re not meant to take it as seriously as you did.

I honestly hope that what I said has made at least some sort of level of understanding for you, and I hope that you don’t take this too harshly. I am not directly calling you out, and if it seems like I was, I apologize. That was not my intention and I simply wanted to make a point.

Keep up the good work on the science and theories, and I hope to at least reach an understanding with you.

(Also, I apologize if this is not something I should have submitted, but the 'Ask’ page only allows for X number of characters, and as you can see, I would not have had nearly enough room to get out everything I wanted to say)

UnderTale science: I didn’t want to have to talk about this, but since you asked, the main problem I have is that venting and “defense mechanism” and “getting back” are not excuses, for any minority or majority, for anyone. Hate incites more hate. Same goes for the whole “once you people stop killing us” as if all Cis people support killing Trans people, generalizations are wrong. I have friends that are trans, the idea that by being Cis I am somehow complicit or supporting hatred and violence against trans people when I’m working and good friends with trans people is just absurd, just like any other use of that fallacy, just because a few extremists of a group do something bad, does not mean it is okay to insult, downplay, discriminate, or insinuate anything about the vast majority of people in that group, something most Trans people know the pain of from experience.

 Why would you assume I, or any other cis person, supports such hateful jokes about any group of people? Why would I go and rant and then be a hypocrite and say it’s okay and its a joke if it’s done to anyone else? There’s a difference between satire and hateful comments. I would never say “it’s just a joke” or “down with (group of people)” or “I hate (group of people)” or “aww, did I hurt your (slur for groups of people) feelings?”. That’s never okay. Neither is the idea you can kill a person for the group they are in and claim you panicked and accidentally committed a hate crime. No fair legal court would agree with that. That’s just something that happens when corruption and hatred takes over a court of law. There’s not really a law that you can kill a person for being trans, that isn’t constitutional.

 You can’t tell any group they aren’t allowed to be offended, you can’t say that a group of people can’t have slurs made against them, you can’t say a group of people have not been discriminated against, because you don’t know that, and in most cases you would be wrong. You would be surprised the inane things we fight over. People are discriminated for being on the other side of an imaginary shifting line that in many cases ends up separating houses and neighborhoods. People are discriminated against for their hair or eye color. Discriminated against for their fandom. Discriminated against for their favorite color (no joke, actually had several cases in ancient history where a color was seen as forbidden and those who wore clothing in that color or collected things of that color were seen as heretics and monsters and witches). Discriminated against for the vehicle they drive, discriminated against for their accent, the way they walk, the hand they eat with or write with (the Latin word for left was also the root word for “sinister”, various religious texts wrote that those who had their left hand as the dominant hand were evil).

 You cannot say that because a group has more people than another group, that your groups discrimination means more, or that you are inherently worth more and your pain is more important than any other group. That is what equality means,we all are equal and thus we are striving for equal treatment and not splitting us up like we aren’t all sentient beings. You can give facts, like “there are no reports of Hate crimes against Cis people in this report cited here”, or that “ a trans person is significantly more likely to be killed for who they are than a Muslim according to these statistics when adjusted for group population size” or that “an African American person is more likely to be killed in this study”. That is really not helping when all it does is lead to groups arguing who is the most oppressed and who is the most in need of equal rights,which is in itself an oxymoronic statement, that for equal rights certain groups need equal rights before or more than other groups. You could spend months arguing over if it’s total amount of lives effected that matters or if it’s the percentage of lives in a certain population of a group that matters, or if it’s the severity of the discrimination that matters.

All that does is waste time turning people against each other while they all try to claim they care about equality and act like other groups couldn’t understand how it feels to be oppressed like them, or like people can only align with one group, like someone can’t be a gay African American-Asian trans woman that is a democrat and a Muslim that likes Steven universe and Undertale and comics and Star Trek and Star Wars and the color purple and the color black. I know one, and she is friends with me, a white Cis straight man that has no religion or political party. She said I could use what she said and her name to defend this point, but for her safety I’m not going to elaborate any further out of fear someone would find out who she is, I already hope what I’ve been forced to say to defend myself isn’t enough for people to find her. Just know that if we can be friends despite who we are, you can accept that we are all equal, we all face discrimination, and I severely hope most people care about ending that discrimination, and I support the few that want true equality, not feminism, black lives matter, or whatever group that forms that cares about equality for some before equality for others, as if that makes sense. If every minority banded together, there would be no majority left. Just one group. If there are truly people in the USA that are the majority for everything, there’s probably so few of them that they would make up one of the smallest groups, and believe me, they would still find things to disagree on.
 Down with hate, for any group.
 Phew that was a lot of typing, my phones screen is going to start wearing away from all this.
Maybe some day I’ll make a book, and at least if you hate it like many will hate this post, it will be so big you can carve it out with a chainsaw and use it as a storage crate.
Why are you still reading this?
Don’t you have anything better to do?

anonymous asked:

I love how there are girls taking signs that say 'fuck me' or 'let me suck your dick' on them to their concerts but you only talk shit about Larries who bring Larry signs which the boys obviously don't mind considering Harry gave thumbs up to a girl that was holding a sign that said 'Larry stylinson' on it. You are constantly looking for excuses to talk shit about Larries as if there's anything wrong with shipping Louis and Harry and showing them support... smh

Here’s the thing… I disagree with this:

Just as much as I disagree with this:


Also, I don’t give a fuck who Harry gives thumbs up to. Larries are problematic and need to be stopped. I have a friend who recently left the Larrie fandom and she literally has to QUESTION HER SENSE OF REALITY when it comes to Harry and Louis because she had Larry Tunnel Vision for the longest time and lived in their little censored world of absolutes. It’s not okay for that part of the fandom to be able to do that to people. It’s awful that they can fuck with people’s minds like that.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH SUPPORTING HARRY AND LOUIS’ RELATIONSHIP.

I personally believe that Harry and Louis are in a real relationship. I support them fully, but I can’t support Larries who should know better than to act like they do.

Larries also do stuff like this:

This is nasty a’f and so many Larries have this mentality. This is NEVER okay.

I would link this post but I’m too scared you won’t click on it, and I’m the OP so it doesn’t matter.

  • Larries are so heterosexist. They use Harry and Louis being stereotypically “gay” as evidence for Larry being real which is gross.
  • They are way too in your face with Harry and Louis about their shipping. For example, that sign in Sweden: “If God hates gays, why do Harry and Louis looks so cute together”
  • They refuse to hear out any criticism and when someone explains to them in great detail with many receipts that they’re wrong, their most common response is “It’s just my opinion back off” or “Whatever, I’m going to keep doing it anyway.”
  • They don’t pay attention to the other boys and try to make everything about Harry and Louis (Larry Tunnel Vision)
  • Because they don’t care very much for the other boys they end up just believing whatever the official narrative tell them about Liam, Niall, and Zayn. That’s just one example of the rampant hypocrisy in that part of the fandom.
  • Anyone who disagrees with a Larrie is an Anti, even if they’re correct.
  • Larries ship Zerrie and Sophiam without question. When they preach their mission to be fandom detectives and get to the bottom of Modest’s bullshit, there is no space for them to be hypocrites.
  • Larries commonly make homophobic/racist remarks that make many LGBTQ+ people and POC very uncomfortable.
  • They’re obsessed with Larry coming out of the closet and even say things like “I’m going to drag them out of the closet myself” which is insensitive, and slightly homophobic.
  • Because when Harry and Louis interact like this it’s true love:

but when Zayn and Liam interact like this they’re bros:

Or when Larry act like this and it’s extreme thirst:

but when Ziam act like this they’re just bros:

I have a whole post about their double standards: HERE

Also, Elounor and Sophiam are exactly the same, but most Larries refuse to believe that Sophia is a beard. It’s not that I’m upset with them for not agreeing with me, It’s that they don’t look at and discuss the evidence in the first place.

Look through my Larries tag, and fandom bullshit tag, maybe it’ll help you get a little more perspective on the issue that are Larries before you come back into my inbox being aggressive and nasty for no reason.

anonymous asked:

I'm a Quinn Fabray fan but I don't really ship her with anyone in that show because lol those canon relationships are way too damn toxic. But, since you seem to be a mature and educated person that doesn't rely on hating other characters to defend what you love, I was wondering if could explain to me why you ship Faberry and why you think Rachel is the best fit for Quinn.

Okay, first of all I have to apologize for taking so long, this king of became a beats with a life of its own.

Second, since you asked so nice and politely, I’m going to try and answer this as objectively as possible. Meaning: I won’t rely on my own interpretations and daydreams about how I would have written them on the show. I’ll only use direct quotes and situations from the show.

Fair Warning: I tend to ramble when I’m passionate about something. It’s hard to get my ideas straight because I want to say it all at once and it doesn’t help that English is my second language. Therefore, this is hella long, like, around 5k words kind of long. Yeap. But I’m not even sorry about it because if there’s something that I’m passionate about, that is definitely Faberry.

Here. We. Go.

So this is the Discourse™ that ensued with an FB friend after I shared a video (made by a liberal) about how it was the fault of the left the Trump won.
  • Friend: I'm sorry but Democrats did not elect Sanders because he was not a Democrat. He rushed onto the scene using the Democratic party to gain notoriety. He was never a democrat.
  • Also, Hillary remains to be the most qualified candidate to ever have run for the position of presidency. I don't agree with everything she has ever done, but there is no denying that fact. People fault Hillary for shifting views from conservative to liberal as she aged, but never failed to notice Trump was a staunch Democrat in action until the election started. And more to the point Bernie Sanders changed his party stance from Independent to Democratic just to gain enough momentum to spread word about his "movement".
  • If this is the Democratic party's fault, then it's the republicans as well. They could have elected a better candidate. The had three very viable candidates in Rubio, Bush, & Cruz, yet they chose to let that orange circus take over.
  • Don't blame my party for this. Blame the majority of angry, working class, (mostly) racist white voters. Blame the nameless, faceless electoral college that we have no say in choosing who "represent us".
  • I am so tired of people tearing down the Democratic party because a devision happened. End rant.
  • Me: Calling the almost 60 million people Who voted for Trump "mostly" racist white voters is part of the problem. I daresay only a fraction of his support was coming from that. There's no way he would be able to win on that demographic alone. Lifelong Democrats voted for Trump. People who supported Obama for all eight years voted for Trump. Blacks voted for Trump. Gays voted for Trump. Muslims voted for Trump. Women voted for Trump. All the groups The media swore up-and-down would never, ever, ever in a million lifetimes see the appeal in Trump voted for him anyway, because Hillary was not a good candidate. Years of lies and shifty playing was coming back to haunt her. Many in the Democratic Party were weary of her before her campaign even started. They basically had to rig the game for her to even win the primary. Say what you will about Sanders, I certainly don't agree with his politics, but there's no doubt he engendered FAR more enthusiasm than Hillary ever did. Forcing Hillary on us was one of the worst mistakes the DNC could've made and numerous liberal commentators have admitted to that at this point. I am far from saying the Republican Party is without blame. I'm a registered independent because I don't much care for party politics and this is why. I think nominating Trump was a disaster for the RNC. But there is no denying that it was more than simply "racist whites" who brought Trump into the White House. And people blaming the electoral college act like Hillary won the popular vote by millions. She had less than 1% more of the popular vote than Trump did. She didn't even have 51%, it was more like 47%. And I highly doubt any Hillary voters would be complaining about the college if Trump had won the popular vote and Hillary had won the college.
  • There is blame on both sides, but the insistence that Hillary was not a deeply, deeply flawed and unlikable candidate and that mere "sexism" and "racism" are solely to blame for this is simply not taking into account the facts.
  • Friend: He actually did pull primarily white, male, non-college educated voters. *cites a BBC article*
  • Hillary did win the popular vote by millions. The percentages don't make it marginal. Most people took Clinton at surface level, refusing to do any further digging into either candidate other than what they read on Facebook or Twitter.
  • The DNC favoring Clinton over Sanders wasn't a rigging. They didn't see Sanders as a viable candidate because, again he was not a democrat.
  • When you support a candidate that breeds hate, intolerance, and is vocally racist; then yes, I identify you as racist.
  • Me: She absolutely did not win the popular vote by millions. This is the current count: *cites a picture from Google showing Clinton with less than a 500,000 vote lead on Trump*
  • And many, many people, including myself did the further digging into Clinton and didn't like what they saw at all. Keep in mind, I didn't vote for Trump either. But 29% of the Latino vote went to Trump. That's more than Romney got in 2012. I'll say it again; people who voted for Obama all eight years voted for Trump. We can try to ignore it all we want, but the reality is it was not just racists voting for Trump no matter how you look at it. *proceeds to cite articles written by blacks, gays, Muslims, and Obama supporters who voted Trump*
  • Now we can pretend these people don't exist. We can shut them down and silence them and act like their voices, however small, don't matter. But that is exactly the attitude that people are getting tired of.
  • Friend: I've posted the statistics, and again his majority came from white men. 8% of the African American vote is not a large number. It's people not acknowledging the fact that the reason he won was because he was a hate-monger that makes our side get tired of explaining why Trump is not fit to lead a nation.
  • Me: I never said his majority didn't come from white men, I said we've got to stop pretending that the millions of other people who voted don't matter because they don't fit that mold. I'm willing to bet the majority of the people who voted for Clinton were white too. That kind of comes with the territory of being the majority race in a nation. And I didn't say 8% was a high number either but again it *matters*. It means that something he was saying appealed to more than just white men. Those articles I posted above are not just "statistics" they are actual people trying to give actual reasons why they voted for Trump, and we know just by common sense that it isn't because they're sexist and racist.
  • I don't need you explaining to me why Trump is not fit to lead a nation because I don't think he is either. All I'm saying is that it is wrongheaded and damaging to shout down every dissenting opinion or person who dares bring up the fact that maybe Clinton wasn't a great candidate either. To paint every person who doesn't think the way you do as a racist without even hearing with their reasoning might be. To assume it's all just hate and fear instead of a long broken system that people are sick and tired of. Everybody was wrong about Trump winning. The media, the pollsters, the celebrities, everybody. I'm just wanting it to occur to people that maybe, just maybe, they made some wrong assumptions about the mood of the country and what they look for in their leaders.
5.15 Reaction Post (long post)

Super long. I did not bother to re-read so there may be some spelling errors. 

  • No One is Alone sounds so pretty. The song actual sets the stage for the storylines that are in tonight’s episode. Lines that I feel really work with the episode “no one acts alone - careful - no one is alone” “people make mistakes holding to their own” “while we’re seeing our side maybe we forgot they are not alone” “someone is on your side”
