i hate living in this world

We live in a chaotic world where it’s difficult to understand the rules. Because why are some people poor and other people rich? Why do some people have to be refugees, while others are safe? Why are some people spit on on the street? And why is it that sometimes, even though you try to do something good, it’s still met with hate? It’s not weird that people give up. That they stop believing in the good. But thank you so much for not giving up, Sana. Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. Each and every one of us is a part of the big chaos. And what you do today, has an effect tomorrow. It can be hard to say, exactly what kind of effect. And you usually can’t see how everything fits together. But the effects of your actions, are always there, somewhere in the chaos. In a hundred years, we may have machines that can predict the effect of every action, but until then, we can trust this:
Fear spreads. But..
But fortunately, love does too.

I saw your previous post, and I just think it's not right to say that God hates anyone. God is love. God created all of us equally and He loves us all more than we can imagine. If someone is the most devoted, dedicated, Christ-loving person in the world and they just happen to be married to someone of the same gender, do you think God would just turn them away? I was always taught in church that God loves us unconditionally and if we dedicate our lives to Him, He will save us. Isn't that true?

1: Yes God hates. and Yes God loves. Just look at the cross you see the love of God and you see the wrath of God.. YES God loves us more then we can imagine but He also hates sin more then we can ever imagine. Proverbs 6:16–19 lists seven things the Lord hates: pride, lying, murder, evil plots, those who love evil, false witnesses, and troublemakers. Notice that this passage does not include just things that God hates; it includes people as well. Sin cannot be separated from the sinner except by the forgiveness available in Christ alone.. God cannot judge the lie without also judging the liar. The Bible clearly teaches that God loves the people of the world (John 3:16). At the same time God hates all evildoers. (Psalm 5:5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.) (Psalm 11:5 The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.) And remember God does not send the sin to hell, He sends the sinner to hell.

2: I don’t think God will turn them away, I know God will turn them away. Because the Bible clearly states anyone that willfully lives in sin will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:20:21, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Ephesians 5:5)

3: What you were taught in church is wrong.. What you described is works based righteousness.. We are saved by faith alone. (Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.) So no it’s not true. What is true is that we are all sinners and we can not do anything to save us from the wrath of God but Thank Jesus that He came down, died and rose again so that we could have eternal life and right standing with God if we believe in Him.

  • Lea Surana: I mean I can facilitate that
  • Lea Surana: nobody would know
  • Lea Surana: why are you looking at me like that, I have been out from Kinloch less than a year ok, I barely know how to sleep under an open sky without panicking what the fuck do I know about court intrigue, nobles' politics and moron kings?

007: “I’m cold. Come closer.

In Gamora’s eyes, Peter had alway run hot. According to old records, and her own experience, Gamora knew her people to be sun-loving for more reason that light. Her world, like Xandar, was situated between two stars, which allowed for optimal heat for the people who lived there.

“Why are you always so cold?” Rocket had asked her once when they were eating dinner. He had brushed up against her and instantly curled away. And not in his usual I-hate-physical-contact kinda way, but in the way where the hair rose on his arms. Peter told her that this is what mammals do when they’re cold to maximize the surface area and thus retain more heat. Gamora doesn’t know if he’s bullshitting her or not, but she’s gotten used to his strange ways.

However, before she could respond, Drax raised his hand. “I know. I know. Because she is a cold-hearted assassin.”

Was,” Peter corrects the muscular man. Drax just shrugged his tattooed shoulders and went back to slurping down his glowing blue soup.

When Gamora thinks back to that absurd conversation, she wonders why her body doesn’t do that. What little she knows of her species tells that she is mammalian, like Peter and Rocket, but her body temperature is much lower than theirs.

And the worst thing is that she and Peter are stuck on Hoth'taun, an icy planet where blizzards blast constantly. Not an ideal place for someone who, apparently, can’t retain heat. The two of them were on what was supposed to be a quick mission. Delivering product from one edge of the Nova Empire to the other. Rocket, Drax, and a teenager Groot decided to stay behind because none of them liked the cold. So Gamora and Peter had drawn the shortest straws. Gamora wonders if Rocket did that on purpose.

Being on a freezing planet as someone who didn’t have heat-retaining body was not pleasant. Her binary vascular system, helpful during battles and other times, doesn’t do anything for her in the cold of the planet. Her body doesn’t retain heat, meaning that her blood slows down. She’s been feeling more sluggish than usual and her reflexes are suffering as well.

“You okay, ‘Mora?“

Peter’s voice sounds soft inside their snow-cave and his warm breath makes her hunch her shoulders. Carved using Godslayer and Peter’s blaster, it’s essentially just a hole in the ground with ice over the top. The green-skinned woman shudders.

“I’m f-f-fine,” she stutters. Her words are almost too quiet for the Terran to hear, but there’s a slight echo in their little hole and so he does.

“You sound cold.” Peter puts a hand on her arm and the hairs on his arms rise. “Shit, Gamora, you’re freezing!”

She turns to him with the curl of a snarl on her lips. “I said I’m fine.”

Peter shakes his head. He pulls her to him, gently, giving her ample room to move away if she needs to. He’s always been like this with her. When they first danced on Knowhere and again on Ego’s planet. It takes him approximately thirty seconds to fully get his arms around her, and she smiles into her shoulder. “Well, I’m cold,” he tells her as he pretends to shudder. He’s covered in more layers than she is and he’s also got the advantage of being able to retain heat. “Come closer.” It’s a little redundant when she’s already in his arms, but she turns to him anyway.

“I cannot possibly keep you warm, Peter.”

“I know.” His smile lights up like a supernova. “But it’s the thought that counts, right?”

“You’re an idiot,” she mumbles into his shoulder as he wraps his scarf around the both of them and pulls her into the comfort of his old Ravager jacket. “But… thank you.”

I’m going to admit, I have no idea where this came from. But I watched the movie again and wondered why Gamora looks like she has no hair on her body. So I came up with this idea for some reason. She’s closer to a reptile in the sense that she can’t retain heat unless she’s in the sun.

I hope this was okay!

a quick note on free speech online

The other day I saw a tweet stating that online trolls are the canary in the coal mine of free speech. These people consider themselves heroes, noble crusaders in a world in which censorship runs amok. 

People who might charitably be referred to as “online trolls” like to regularly send me vile tweets insulting and dehumanizing me as a trans person. These people are not radicals fighting against oppressive institutions. They support the transphobic, transmisogynistic status quo. They are part of the reason why I live in a world that is hostile to trans people, why I never forget when I leave the house that I, as a visibly trans person, am entering a world that hates trans people. 

Now, I could care about the right of these people to freely express their hatred of trans folks online in the name of “free speech.” Or, in the name of “free speech,” I could care about the right of tomorrow’s young trans woman to leave her apartment and enter the world, inhabiting herself fully and speaking herself honestly without the fear that comes from living in a world in which you are hated simply for being who you are. 

Should people have the right to express racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or transphobic ideas? I suppose, and in any case they do have that right. But in a sensible, equitable culture that recognizes the full, intrinsic humanity of people who are currently marginalized and dehumanized, these ideas will be distasteful and their expression frowned upon. Instead of trans people being afraid simply to leave their homes for fear of assault or murder, transphobes will be afraid to express their transphobia for fear of being shunned for their hateful ideology. 

Make racists afraid
Make misogynists afraid
Make homophobes afraid 
Make transphobes and transmisogynists afraid

so that women, people of color, queer and trans folks might live and speak their truths without fear in a world that does not hate them or dehumanize them simply for being who they are.

ugh i don’t mean to be emotional™ but sometimes all y'all on here (not the demons who send me anon hate) are the only ppl bringing me joy. i live with conservative family members who i could never come out to, i lost most of my friends after i shut myself off from from the world after i tried to kill myself, and right now i don’t know what i wanna do my life despite the fact that i only have one year left of my degree but I’m not even interested in what I’m studying anymore like life is kind of a mess for me and idk how to make sense of it but being on here, chatting with ppl about happy things, i can forget about the hard shit. so ily all so much <3

anyone else have the burning desire to deactivate all their social media accounts and book a flight somewhere and just disappear and live a totally anonymous existence where no one bothers you and you don’t bother anyone

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

Korean Hip-Hop imitates mainstream American Hip-Hop by stealing the concepts, fashion, music, and attitude (yes, misogyny included). Korean artists strive to be as close to the media’s idea of Blackness as possible, most of them copying each other to the point where I can’t tell some Korean rappers apart cuz their music and style is relatively the same.

So it’s really interesting to see Kpop and K Hip-Hop fans talk about how Koreans do it better, especially since there’s no creative movement behind the genre’s presence in South Korea. They latched on to Hip-Hop for the same reason most white people do. It was a way to profit off the world’s desire to be Black without having to live as a Black person.

We’ve been saying it for the longest time but I’ll say it again. Y’all only like K Hip-Hop over ours bcuz you hate Black people and/or fetishize East Asians. That is the only reason. Listening to K Hip-Hop gives you all the things you like seeing come from Black American culture, without you having to actually see Black people.

I wish that no one cared and moved on easily with their lives if I died but I know my death would affect people so I can’t be so selfish and take my own life so I wish that something would make me die already …

And you don’t make me feel impossible. You don’t make me feel like I’m impossible to love and I cannot thank you enough for that. You could of loved anyone on this planet and you picked me and I cannot say how grateful I am for that. That you picked me. Me. Me. You picked me to love and I think that is the most magical thing ever. You picked to love my laugh and my obsession with animals. You picked me and you picked to love my love for books and all things nature. You picked to love my four year old boy laugh and my harshness when the world get’s to hard. You picked to love me and my pills that I take every day to battle clouds that seem to always follow me. You picked to love my scarred skin from night’s when everything got to much and you picked to love my stubbornness on what I want to eat for dinner. You picked to love my small hands and my small personality which you make me feel like it’s big and beautiful. You picked to love my 4 pm I love you’s and my 2 am I don’t want to be here’s. You picked to love my love for animals and homeless people and my uncontrollable laugh when you make a stupid joke. You picked to love my long brown hair and my dull brown eyes. You picked to love my love hate relationships with my mother and my sad life story. You picked to love me and you not only have made me feel loved, you have made me feel like I was beautiful when all I have ever felt my entire life was unworthy. You showed me that I did not need to live in a world of black and white and you opened my heart to color again and I cannot thank you enough for that but I’d like to start with our little “forever”. I hope you do too.

she had the world // panic! at the disco

This morning I was thinking about the LGBT+ community I know vs the LGBT+ community now, and something dawned on me. The LGBT+ community doesn’t respect its predecessors. Gay culture has changed drastically over the last 10 years, and I’m okay with us moving forward naturally with what people within the community naturally want - I’m not okay with us shitting on the past, erasing the past, degrading the past, as we do so.

The LGBT+ flag is topical so I’m going to start there. During the aids crisis, we never gave up. People were faced with something that was killing them on a biological level, and they said “Fuck you”. People had “going away” parties after being diagnosed where they would go out and drink and drink and drink, not going home for days, they would kill themselves because they didn’t want to let aids have the last say - they said “Fuck you, I control my life, I control when I die”. Other people, even some of the first to be diagnosed while they were still giving out numbers with each new diagnosis, are still alive today - they said “Fuck you, I’m going to take everything I can and do everything I can, you are not taking me, bitch”. We added a black line for those people. And now people think that those struggles don’t deserve that colour any more, that instead of using the pride flags they already have for the intersection of race and LGBT+ issues, they can appropriate all of those deaths.

Punks and rockers in the 70s and 80s stood by gay people, we shared our fashion sense and our flare for the dramatic, bright hair colours and clothes that stood out. Punks and rockers got beaten up for being presumed gay. The leather and spikes in the metal community were popularized because gay artists in that community wore those things on stage - it came from gay culture. And now those very bands and communities have to constantly remind people that they’re left-leaning, that they’re for gay rights, that they’re against systems of power - because somewhere down the line someone decided that gay culture was now flower crowns and unicorns, and that the other subcultures have been against us all along.

Drag queens and leather and revealing clothes are constantly pictured online with captions saying that they’re inappropriate at Pride. Fucking Pride - a protest, a party, a celebration of all of the wild and wonderful aspects that we incorporated into our culture when we said “We’re outside of the norm and so are you, so lets rock it together”. They were our body guards, they took the brunt of the insults and violence while those who were afraid hung back and looked “normal”. They are our history. They are the communities we stood with because we all understood what it was like to be ostracized and judged, and we accepted each other, and we became stronger together. Pride is a protest and a party in one, it’s not a safe space, it was never supposed to be - and if you’re okay with a woman wearing nothing but a lacy thong and marching at a Free The Nipple protest with “Slut” on her chest in permanent marker, as I see so many of the people who decry Pride outfits celebrating, it’s a giant fucking double standard to not be okay with revealing outfits at Pride. If you’re okay with someone dressed as a slutty unicorn at a Slut Walk, then why aren’t you okay with leather short shorts and a leash at Pride?

And alcohol!? People complaining about the alcohol in the gay community are so utterly unaware of our history. Gay bars were our first real “Safe Spaces”, Harvey Milk and other incredible gay activists rose to popularity partially because of their incredible personalities, their parties, their fun and kind nature, how they welcomed people in and offered them drinks and fun and friendship with no question. Our history is full to the brim with proof that being fun and exciting and rebellious was what drew people to us.

And the one that grinds my gears the most is slurs - is how everyone is so quick to be offended by words. That’s not what the gay community has ever stood for. The film “Pride” said it best when it said that when we’re called a name, we take it and we run with it. The “Pits and Perverts” concert happened because the newspapers called us perverts and we said “That’s catchy”. You can’t take away people’s power by giving that word all of the power and then saying that only bad people can use it, only people that hate you can use it - because now the word means “I hate you, I have power over you, you disgust me” - you take their power by making the word meaningless, by taking the word and going “ours now”. That was one of the staples of the LGBT+ community, a motto that we all lived by. But now people talk about how those words have “always been used to oppress us”, as if that never happened.

Y'all act like you want the world to think that LGBT+ people are pastel coloured, young, innocent, harmless angels - we’re rebels, we bring the fun, we bring the energy, we fight to the death and we’ve won over and over and over again; we wear our hair big and bright, we wear our labels on our chest, not because we want to ~normalize~ and ~raise awareness~ but because we’re daring the world to fucking try it, because we’re saying to the homophobes “I’m not scared of you” and we’re taking their power and their words. This modern LGBT+ community isn’t doing that, it’s screaming “Think of the children!” like the conservatives of old, it’s insisting that we’re quaint, middle class, and “just like you”, instead of “Fuck you we don’t have to conform”. It’s becoming what we fought, it’s turning on its own members, past and present, for engaging in parts of our culture and our history.
