i dont know what people will search

anonymous asked:

Hi! I want to ask advice.I'm learning fine art at a university, and try to do my best, but every day I feel like the fandom groups/facebook etc. slowly but surely kill my passion for 3 years. Ignorance, humiliation, disregard. I'm at my wit's end. I dont know what should I do, I want to keep drawing, but I feel like its pointless, and no matter how hard I try my artwork is useless. I feel like I'm making a mistake by believing, I can work as an artist, and I should search for something else.

This message kind of makes me very sad. 

There’s one thing I can advice. Quit the groups and fandom circles that make you burn out so much. There is no way every single fan in a fandom you love is ignorant, or humiliating, or disregarding. Find YOUR people who will support you and re-charge your passion. 

I feel like it’s in a way how I feel about tumblr recently. I see so many posts on my dashboard that either make me super bitter or annoyed…I kind of feel like a sea of salt after I spent too much on tumblr, but whenever I’m out of it I’m back to the ray of sunshine. I guess there are blogs and posts I feel no longer connected to. And it’s normal.

SO. Try finding someone you connect to. Having a one loyal friend in a fandom you can always talk to is much better than seeing the art (even if it’s great art) from a person you don’t understand. 

There is absolutely no way that your artwork is USELESS. I generally feel that the main point of art should be bringing YOU joy. If you draw there should be something you love about it. I guess it shouldn’t really rely on recognition only. 

Also, I might sound like Katara, but hey, faith pays off. If you truly believe in something it’s going to get you there eventually.

I don't mean to come off as rude, but isn't that the same thing as the people who reblogs things for the aesthetic? Like that one comic you made earlier? Like, you just like it because it's foreign looking. It even has meme in the title. I don;t mean to sound rude or or anything, I am just curious how it is different.

nah, it’s very different. when i talk about the obsession w ‘japanese aesthetic’ (usu. cherry blossoms and sailor uniforms and japanese language without a grasp of what any of it means) i’m talking about just kind of glossing over an entire culture and its roots and only wanting to appreciate how it looks on the surface.

it’s not at all to imply someone can’t appreciate artistic aspects of japanese culture, it’s just that, as with anything, theres a difference between appreciating a culture (learning about many aspects & understanding it as a whole), and appropriating a culture (‘oh that looks so Oriental™’/preferring to project your own uninformed, romanticized, and idolized ideals on it rather than learn what it means from a real human standpoint.)

when i was gushing abt that person’s taking inspiration from the traditional japanese arts, i definitely wasnt just liking it because it was foreign looking; i liked it because it drew upon actual traditional japanese culture. they didnt just half-assedly draw something that “looked japanese-y” without so much as a google search, those masks in the second video i linked are actually identifiable noh masks. i really do love how the artists style & oni characters draw from actual japanese art, and i think they did it beautifully.

anonymous asked:

Hey why are you promoting and working on a blog au that shows physical and emotional abuse against Sonic? Last time I checked he's 15, and I'm the same age myself and this project makes me super uncomfortable.

for that reason we put a warning omg

its not like we promote abuse or find it a good thing; mostly against children

seeing as ive been abused throughout my childhood to this very day and probably still will be in the future, I understand this could make you uncomfortable, but understand this is in no way just us fucking up sonic for the sake of fucking him up, there is story behind it and character development and more.

most of the people working on this are 15 years old themselves.

we know what we are doing.

I tag everything accordingly, you can blacklist it if you dont want to see it when i reblog it, you can block the blog for it if you dont want it to show up in your search.

you can totally unfollow me if it makes you uncomfortable to know im involved in this too ??? do what makes you comfortable and happy!

anonymous asked:

gonna comment on the discourse?

no thanks dude i am here for a Mildly Fun Tumblr Experience

heres a few key ways you can do that:

  • blacklist
    • blacklist whatever you want!!! people dont have to know what you blacklist unless you tell them so dont be ashamed to blacklist anything you dont want to see
    • ships, characters, fandoms, urls, etc etc etc
    • it will improve your experience guarantee it 
    • (also note: if youre like me and click the ‘show post’ button whenever something gets blacklisted, you can choose not to display blocked quotes at all and save yourself from opening things that you know will upset you)
    • theres nothing wrong with blacklisting stuff. youre never silencing anyone or ignoring a problem, youre choosing your internet experience and saying ‘hey i dont want to see this right now so im not going to’ 
    • dont like oranges? sick of seeing them on your dash? blacklist them. more power to you
  • block people you dont like/who upset you/who you have problems with
    • im still working on getting better at blocking people but honestly?? if someones bringing lots of negativity in your life just block them. you dont need them messing up the already usually unpleasant tumblr experience
  • find a squad
    • this might be harder but dont be too afraid to start messaging people youd like to be friends with!!
    • once you find a squad heres somethings you can do: 
      • make new friends! comes with having a squad but is always nice
      • rant/salt
        • now youve got a private place to complain about stuff nice!!!
        • this keep stuff like that off your blog, meaning youre less likely to get into arguments on here which we all know…isnt fun 
      • have people you trust to debate with without all of the internet chiming in 
      • youve got people to hold you back from sending/posting things that could start stuff 
        • or not
        • maybe theyll encourage it who knows
      • youve got a nice little space with people you like where you can talk about fandom stuff and personal stuff and youve got much more control over it than over your dash!!
  • dont tag hate
    • this is like tumblr 101 BUT tumblr has changed how tagging and searching works in the past few years
    • love this functional website
    • say you make a post criticizing character x and y. their ship name is xy, so you tag it with “anti xy” 
      • stop!! halt!! do not pass go do not collect $200!!!
      • because you used “xy” in the post/tags, it will show up when “xy” is searched, even with the “anti” in front of it
      • that means if someone searches “xy” theyre gonna find your crit, and you probably dont want that
    • and going off of that: 
  • tag appropriately
    • some ships just gotta be tagged differently than others, im sure you know what i mean 
    • but in general?? if someone asks you to tag something?? usually the best bet is to do it 
    • its not a huge deal and youre probably already tagging the post anyway so its easier for everyone if you tag it, plus!! youre making people more comfortable!!!

tumblr is a mess and frankly? usually theres a lot of stuff that make it not fun. but you too can make your tumblr experience a Mildly Entertaining and Enjoyable one

cosmicending  asked:

what confuses me about this genitalia transphobia discussion you're holding is that you switch between what it is you have a problem with. in your video you explicitly say that my preference and what i'm attracted to is transphobic, and that i should unlearn my biases. but when confronted, you talk like it's an ideological issue (ie associating penises with men or believing trans women can't be lesbians). that i understand, but my personal preference doesn't dictate my overall ideology. -

this message was sent in three parts, here are the other two parts:

- i can be unattracted to penises and still recognize that women with penises are in fact women, and that wlw encompasses all women. i’m also unattracted to large breasts; both of these are just physical characteristics that i don’t find to be appealing regardless of who they belong to. this doesn’t mean i wouldn’t be attracted to any women with those attributes, but as a sexual person i prefer mutuality, and i wouldn’t feel okay if i was unable respond to a lady i like in kind.

i just feel like there’s a misunderstanding on some level, and it really makes me feel awful to be called transphobic because i’m not attracted to a certain physical attribute that does matter sexually. i don’t like any phallic things at all. none of that is even to say that i like vagina specifically, because i’m not attracted to men with vaginas either, nor am i to butch cis women. i believe that trans women are women and i think they belong in wlw spaces just as much as anyone else

*sigh*

okay, i get a lot of messages like these, but most of them are aggressive and rude and misgender me and call me awful slurs. yours actually seems polite and like you’re trying to understand so let me see if i can explain.

first of all, you say, “in your video you explicitly say that my preference and what i’m attracted to is transphobic”. that’s just factually inaccurate. i never say the words transphobia or transphobic in my video. not once.

the closest i come to saying that is this line, “Would you date a trans person? Think about it for a second. Okay, got your answer? Well, if you said no, I’m sorry, but that’s pretty discriminatory.”

notice how i didn’t say anything about genitals. i didn’t say “would you date a trans woman who has a penis?” i asked about trans people in general. that could mean trans women with penises, trans women with vaginas, trans men with penises, trans men with vaginas, non-binary people with penises, non-binary people with vaginas, etc.

if your answer is categorically “i would never date a trans person” then you’re not saying you have a genital preference, you’re just discriminating against trans people. it’s the similar to if someone said “i would never date a black person”. that’s clearly racist. and saying you could never possibly date any trans person is clearly cissexist (transphobic). if we don’t agree on that… well i don’t know how to convince you of that. you’re welcome to have your “preferences”. no one’s going to make you date black people or trans people, but i do think it’s important to recognize that those “preferences” were influenced by a racist and cissexist society. implicit bias and the influence of media and society on what we find attractive or desirable have been well studied and documented. you can find plenty of studies on that with a quick google search (before anyone says “why dont you provide links to sources then” because im not required to do your research for you and that’s time consuming and i aint getting paid for this).

if that’s not the line from my video that you have a problem with, you’re welcome to quote any other part of my video, but i guarantee you i never said what you’re claiming i said.

now, this discussion has morphed into something else recently over tumblr/twitter/youtube which is something along the lines of “is it transphobic for a lesbian to not want to date/have sex with a woman with a penis?” this is a very nuanced and complicated topic that i think has been framed in a very misleading way, and im planning to get my thoughts more in order and do a full video on this later – so im not going to address that right now.

i think it’s great that you believe trans women are women and belong in the women’s spaces. and i don’t think you have to be attracted to dick. the reason this sounds like an ideological issue, i think, is because the majority of the people arguing against me are TERFs or radfems or anti-feminists (hilarious that they agree on this topic lol). most of the messages i get are along the lines of “i dont like penis because i dont like men and only men have penises!! stop trying to be a woman, you man! you’ll never be a REAL woman like me!!” so when im reacting to those messages and sentiments, yeah, it’s very ideological. then of course, i think there are folks, like yourself, who say that they believe trans women are women and all of that but still want to have a discussion about genital preferences. i wish that could be the main discussions without TERFs butting in and making me defend my own identity as a woman. i think it would make it much easier to have a civilized discourse on the effects of implicit bias and all that. but when most of the messages i receive are from TERFs, i have to go back to defend my basic identity and we’re not able to have those more in-depth conversations.

i hope that makes sense, and i hope i’ll be able to explain the rest of this for you in my future video.

take care <3

Hi! I have a little something I've been confused about lately: Are Jokers a variation of creepy clown, killer clown or circus clown? I’ve heard people mention one but never seen one and google search gives mixed answers. I want to get some kind of creepy or killer clown because I like creatures that are misunderstood and want to change people's minds about them (especially considering releasing of It) and I think a Joker might be what I'm looking for.

Jokers are a distant mutt breed made from mostly Creepy clowns and some type of extinct Court breed! A fun fact people dont know is that theyre very closely related to Juggalos!

Remember to check your local laws, you may need a permit to own a Joker!

5 Times Interrupted

Fandom: My Babysitter’s A Vampire
Warning/s: Some serious sexual frustration
Rating: Mature
Pairing/s: Benny x Reader

Summary: 5 TIMES FIC- Sometimes its a nightmare to just get away from everyone. Apparently the world is full of cock-blocks, and they come in the form of future-seeing best friends, vampire babysitters, annoying little sisters, magical grandmas and dorky blonds.
Will you and Benny ever just find somewhere to be alone? 
Or five times your friends interrupted and one time they didn’t.

1.

You were with Benny in Ethan’s living room, snuggled together on the sofa watching the horror film playing on the television while Ethan and Sarah were upstairs doing a project for Biology.

Twisting up to look at your boyfriend’s face, you pecked his jawline and smirked when he jumped in surprise. Quickly composing himself, Benny pulled you up in his arms and kissed your lips, chastely at first but soon licking his way into your mouth and pulling you closer with two hands on your waist.

One hand carded into his hair while the other reached under his shirt and traced his firm torso- using butterfly touches because it made him squirm the most.

With a noise that sounded a lot like a growl, Benny flipped the two of you over so that he was hovering over you with a coy quirk to his lips that made your tummy make all kinds of flips and twirls. Leaning down, he balanced himself on his forearms either side of your head and crushed his lips to yours.

Dear Fanartists

please watermark every one of your paintings.

not only does it prevent your work to be stolen from others, but if some people screenshot it and want to make it their icon or whatever, they just can’t credit - even if they want to - because they forgot what your url is

please watermark your art. do it like the people did it in the past - a quick sign at the bottom right. it’s enough, and it can even make it look prettier and more professional. do it for yourself and for the others.

take care!! and remember: your art is precious.

why do people hear end their asks with emojis? does this mean something? sorry I just don't know

i think it might be a carry-over from undiagnosedautismfeels, who tag asks signed off with emojis so that people can find what they sent in easier. it also lets ppl stay anon but have some sort of identity

i dont tag them on here, but i think the search function still lets you search the blog for emojis (at least it used to on mobile)

EDIT: i’ll put this in the faq bc it seems relevant, but i have no problem at all with people signing off using emojis. however, i wont tag them as i find tagging content takes a lot of spoons, and im very likely to forget about it frequently. im unwilling to take that extra strain mentally. sorry for anyone hoping for this feature

Hi! Do you have any advice for those who want to be animators? I started a career in architecure but I'm thinking to switch to digital arts, so I just really dont know what to expect. Thank you so much in advance. Your art is amaizing!

Ooooh boy!! First off, GREAT CHOICE. I’m a little biased, but I think animation is amazing. There are a ton of different roles in the pipeline of animation (2D, 3D, and stopmotion) that people don’t realize exist. My first piece of advice for someone interested in starting animation is to research the process. Look at the credits of your favorite animated movie and search those jobs you don’t understand. Look at a process video about animation to find out how a shot is actually developed. I think that’s the number one reason I see people switch out of animation. They dive in without realizing what they’re getting themselves into. As a budding animator, who’s already established as an architect (very cool field btw), your drawing skills are probably pretty strong in terms of realism/environments. Those skills would transfer well I think into backgrounds, layouts and effects animation.

And of course, drag a sketchbook around with you everywhere. This might be a habit you’re already have, which is great. But you may want to start using it and looking at the word differently. As an animator, I use a lot of real world experiences I’ve had to put meaning and some realism in my animation and characters. So when I sketch, I try and capture the people and world around me. I go to random places- markets, parks, festivals etc.- and just sit and draw things I see. People who catch my eye, animals I think are kinda funny looking. And that strengthens not only my drawing skills, but also the experiences I can pull from to inspire my own work. So go out and draw the world around you. It’s always difficult. That never changes. But it’s rewarding and my favorite part of being an animator.

Hope this helps!! Good luck and message me if you need advice!

I'm near dropping out of School by myself. I hate School, i hate People in School, they dont See Their faults, they dont know what is wrong or right, maybe im the same and dont know it either but i try to so the right Things and they make it so hard for me to just be myself. I Search for a reason to Stay at this hell hole

And they’re selfish as fuck. Don’t drop out of school tho. Put on your fav playlist during study hours and just try to act as…whatever they are trying to be (just be friendly with them) because group projects!

ALSO every year is different, if last year was shitty, that doesn’t mean this year will be? Try to find that little bit of positivity! And wear bomb ass clothes to get them compliments and small talk. Clothes say a lot about a person. You like hoeing? Dress like a hoe. You like weed? Dress like a stoner. I’m not even kidding I encourage you to BE YOURSELF. (Unless you’re a bully, everything is perfectly fine except for bringing yourself or others down. we’ll have to talk then.)

Don’t hide because that’ll make the year 20 times harder.

whats wrong with kallura?? arent they both teenagers?? i dont wanna ship anything wrong

kallura is fine age-wise but i don’t ship it bc there’s like, z e r o chemistry between them imo. other people are uncomfortable w it for multiple other reasons which are mainly because of how allura’s entire civilisation was destroyed by the galra and keith is part galra and having her forgive him and romance him is just for the sake of having shipping content is just.. Not Good

im p sure that you can find more if you search the tag? i know @pidger​ has an anti tag as well containing several detailed posts explaining why it’s not that good a ship

RANTING TIMMEEEE

YOU KNOW WHAT I HATE (hahahha) when anti’s simply complain about how BaD and DiSgUsTiNg it is about liking or having interest in certain mass murders and or serial killers… if you don’t like it then dont search us up if bothers you SO DAMN MUCH WHERE IT “MaKeS YoU SiCk” and make you feel “DiSgUsTeD ThAt PeOpLe LiKe ThIs ExSiSt”. And it’s not even that deep, either like shut the fuck up, seriously. Especially with columbiners, we automatically get called “future school shooters” just because we feel sympathy for Dylan and Eric because of the shit they went through. Or if we say TJ Lane is cute or some shit like cmon now. But dont get me wrong I am not defending the “edgy” dumb fucks the actually CONDONE what Dylan and Eric caused or any mass murderer or serial killer for that matter but since I’m a columbiner in this here tcc community, I on the other hand dont think what they did was right and all my sympathy goes towards the victims and their families, and the surviors even though I may not post about them. (especially thegirlwiththetrenchcoat when she posted her posing as Eric smoking a cigarette near the memorial sight, which in my eyes is disrespectful). And I dislike that we’re labeled as “crusty white girls” I NOT EVEN FUCKING WHITE, I am African-American and Hispanic. Obviously you all see how we react when you tell us that were DiSgUsTiNg and PyScHo we simply repsond with a sarcastic remark BECAUSE WE DONT GIVE A SHIT!!! SO WHY WASTE YOUR FUCKING TIME TELLING US ANYTHING

Anyways moral of the story (rant) here is…Anti’s if you all think what we’re doing is So WrOnG then shut the fuck up, dont say anything, don’t search us up, and dont waste your fucking time reblogging, commenting, and dming us telling us what we’re doing is wrong because we dont give a shit about what you fuckheads have to say about our accs and we will tear your sorry, bored asses up in any argument as a whole.

OKAY GOODNIGHT

How do you deal with missing/losing someone (not from death just life) when you know for a fact they should still be in your life? I feel the need to fill that gap with someone else but no one will be able to fill it and I know I dont need people to be feeling in these gaps. I really just dont know what else to do ive been very delicate with my self and have been busy and focusing on self care alot but what else can i do?

Hello friend,

Focusing on self care seems like it would be the very best option for you at this point. That is absolutely wonderful that you are already doing this, so please continue to do so, and really try to dive deeper into yourself. A lot of the time one will try searching for other people to fill gaps that exist within themselves, when what they really need is a deeper self connection. What I find really helps is a good meditation session every now and again; this helps to clear the mind, reflect, and really connect with oneself.

Please try not to worry too much about who is currently in your life. Those who are meant to be there will remain, and those who are not will come and go. It is absolutely wonderful to keep connections with others, however don’t go too far out of your way to try to rekindle a relationship that just may not stay ignited. Treasure those who are closest to you, treasure those you love, and treasure yourself.

Everything will work out in the end; it is up to us whether we constantly worry about what this ‘end’ will be, or if we simply accept what is, and genuinely enjoy this beautiful life. ❤️️

Might be a long shot but do you or your followers know of any. Good lgbt+ podcasts? Ideally discussion topics but also just podcasts by lgbt+ people ya know? Just getting into the podcast world and I'm lost lol

not sure? if any of yall have any podcasts you like feel free to share!

you might be able to find some posts about it if you search “podcast” on my blog, although the only one i remember specifically was one about a lesbian trucker searching for her girlfriend or wife or something, but i dont think thats entirely what you’re looking for?

good luck!

Ok so i just saw your pangender and proud post, and hadn't heard the term pangender before and i looked it up on tumblr as "pangender meaning" and a lot of hate came up for it :/ that worried me because i read it and said "oh that's a thing? Maybe im pangender". i really dont know what my gender is,all i know is im identifying as non-binary right now and im very masculine :) what do you feel about pangender?

hey non, first of all i’m sorry that a lot of hate came up when you searched the term! people can be shitty and you shouldn’t let that dissuade you from exploring new terms and figuring out your identity.

secondly, pangender is defined by the gender wikia as “a non-binary gender experience which refers to a wide multiplicity of genders that can (or not) stretch to the infinite (meaning that this experience can go beyond the current knowledge of genders), always within the person’s own culture and life experience.” there is also the tumblr pangendering which is all about what pangender means, particularly you might want to look at their FAQ page.
