i have no idea what's the point of this

Mass Effect LGBT Fan Rant (Be Warned very tired while posting this)

Like if you really look at it, despite whatever the fuck they said, all the mass effect team ever really wanted from the start was feminine-focused-space-porn. All they do aside from that is throw in a few other male options for hetero female players, cause the team never really gave a shit about the full diversity of their players.

Once they started to include some m/m shit in me3, they just cut it all out in the new one and you can only have like a fade to black fling on the side as a gay male. Like god fucking damn is that prejudice and choosy of em, especially when they developed bi options for Thane and Jaal, then cut em out RIGHT before release. Like what even is the point of cutting it all out when its all fucking programmed in there??? I’m sorry, but that is extremely prejudiced against bisexual/gay men.

Loved the potential idea of finally getting my character involved with a m/m main story romance, preferably with a unique alien character, and maybe, just maybe, theyd focus on the development of that as much as they did the hetero romances, but hey, apparently that idea is completely un fuckin realistic in an open world sci-fi rp apparently.

Mass Effect: where the development of the game left the fanbase in more tears than the actual fuckin story did.

She said we sexualize her relationship with Camila ??? We romanticize, most of us romanticize not sexualize man, what the hell has she been reading, The Stripper?

Yeah most of us don’t sexualise it we ship the idea of ‘true love’ but honestly there’s a lot of crazy shippers out there who generally overstep the boundaries so I can kinda see her point. Well who knows she could have 😏 What we need to understand is that they need privacy in their lives and we need to be respectful of that, I’m just shipping them on the down low

Hi Emma! I was looking for a fic I think you shared a long time ago (I'm not sure it was actually you who shared it but I think so?) In the fic Derek and Stiles are having sex on a regular basis and Stiles thinks Derek is only using him for his body so one time after sex when Derek is about to leave Stiles says something like "Leave you money on the table"... Do you know what fic I'm talking about? Thanks if you can help :)

I actually have no idea which fic this is, sweetheart, I’m sorry. I would read the heck out of it, though. I am a sucker for this kind of angst.

If someone can help though, maybe they’d be so kind as to reblog a link or point us in the right direction in the reply option below.

Hey spectrum. I was wondering if you had any author recommendations for the tmnt fandom (who possibly rival your salt levels, cause I'm salty about this show and it's characters who deserved better!)

Ooh, I have a few actually! I’m glad you asked!

First up is my friend @hotmilkytea, who is likely made of pure sodium at this point. Her writing is always a joy to read, and the critical reviews of TMNT she writes give me life when I read them. (not to mention ideas of what I could write into my own fix-it fics, bc lord knows this fandom needs more of those.) She’s also super cool and deserves lots of nice reviews, so make sure you send them her way!

Read her super amazing stuff here!

(The next two I’ve got I know best by their AO3 stuff, and so those are the links I’ll use.)

One is @slipstreamborne, (slipstream on AO3), whose fics I just adore reading. Seriously, their work for the 2014/16 portion of the fandom brings joy to my heart and tears to my eyes. I’ve read them all and legit cried over most of them. I hope to one day be able to write for the 2014/16 movies as well as they do, because I deeply admire the ones they’ve written thus far.

Read their awesome fics here!

The other I’ve got is @taizi. They’ve moved into other fandoms lately, but their works for TMNT are still on their profile. And, they’re actually the ones who originally got me into shipping Capritello, my ship of ships and the one I’ll happily go down with. Multiple fictions by this author have made significant impact on me, and I love every single one they’ve done.

Read their incredible works here!

anonymous asked:

how do u cope with getting your nails done? i dread it every time i go bc it's exhausting and i feel so tired after even though i just sit there for two hours ?

honestly i dont cope with it very well at all, i just go and get it done and suffer because im too attached to having my nails to stop! having short nails at this point is 100% sensory hell and so i almost kind of go to the salon and have it done out of dependancy

i also find it utterly exhausting and often come home and have to curl up on the sofa with my weighted blanket for a couple of hours before i feel able to do anything else :-( sorry pal 

(i cant even take stims or a hot drink because your hands are occupied at all times, so i have no idea what to suggest)(i stim and curl up a lot when i come home)

@couldbesweeter

I don’t really understand your first point? Yeah, racism, sexism, transphobia and ableism all exist. That doesn’t mean if you have an understanding of the experiencd of oppression in a specific context doesn’t mean you have an understanding of another experience of oppression in another context? Like, for example, as a white gender non conforming lesbian from the UK, I have no idea what it means to experience oppression as a black man from the United States? Like sure being oppressed gives me some insight into the general mechanics of oppression, and I can observe oppression from an outsider’s viewpoint but it certainly doesn’t mean doesn’t give me that grounded subjective knowledge of antiblack racism in the US? And I certainly do not automatically understand racism because I’m gay, that’s just clearly untrue - and similarly, vice versa, a straight black man doesn’t automatically have knowledge of what homophobia is like to experience because they’re black.

So, whilst the creators of Yuri on ice may have some understanding of the mechanics of oppression, through either observation or through personal experience, they have no insight into that subjective knowledge of what it is to be gay, let alone what it is to be a gay man in the contexts they’ve set up? Because they are women doesn’t mean they automatically understand homophobia.

On your second point, homophobia is something that we are all taught and all have to consciously unlearn and look out for. This is true of all people, because we largely all live in a homophobic patriarchal society (and this is certainly both true of Japan and the UK, however it likely manifests in different ways bc of the very different histories and social contexts of those countries). It’s also worth nothing homophobia is a practice - it’s something you do, however subtle, whether it’s violent slurs or fictional narratives where gay men are punished for their flamboyant gayness. This means whilst we may consciously have recognised, yeah, homophobia is bad, we may still continue to practice it because we aren’t aware of exactly how ingrained it is, exactly how subtle and insidious homophobia can be.

To use the Yuri on Ice fandom as an example: the fandom, which is regrettably composed of a lot of straight women who like to fetishise gay men, have liked to pin Yuuri and Viktor into heteronormative roles. They think of Yuuri as the fussy ‘mom’ who does all the cleaning and Viktor as the lazy 'dad’ who doesn’t do the dishes, despite them both being adults who have lived by themselves and are both capable of doing chores, and them having arguments? These fans have taken this healthy, loving gay relationship and projected heteronormative bullshit onto it in order to break up them relationship simply for the sake of angst and drama? They enjoy the superficial pain of these gay men in this clearly fabricated situation. It’s messed up.

Now, these fans probably think they’re doing nothing wrong. For some of them they’ll believe homophobia has to be explicit, it only exists as an active hatred, as violence or slurs, and don’t really get that even though it’s an activity it can be done passively, subconsciously, trough microaggressions and the perpetuation of harmful stereotypes, such as that gay relationships have someone who’s 'really the husband’ and someone who’s not. Do they mean to be homophobic? Probably not. Are they being homophobic? Absolutely.

The same principle applies to all of us. We can all be subconsciously homophobic. In fact members of marginalised groups usually take plenty of time to examine their own internalised oppression themselves. However because gay people are subject to homophobia they are more keenly aware of how it is displayed when it’s not obvious and explicit. They are aware of what stereotypes are harmful because they have had to be - it’s similar to a kind of hypervigilance. Therefore, a along with the vested interest in not being homophobic because that hurts themselves and their comrades, I trust gay people to take the time to question whether their own fictional creations perpetuate harmful stereotypes. Because they have a subjective experience to concretely refer to, and because of hypervigilance , it will also be easier for them.

I do not trust straight people to do this as a rule. They have nothing to gain from helping the LGBT community. They have no framework to refer to besides homophobic caricatures already existing in fiction and often they don’t care enough to check with LGBT viewers. So they make narratives which are quietly homophobic, unaware that they are homophobic, and ignore LGBT people when they are criticised for being homophobic because for them, homophobia = hatred, and they don’t knowingly hate anyone.

This is a long prelude to explain that in the case of Kubo and Yamamoto, whilst they have attempted to write a setting with no in-world homophobia, that they might unknowingly still write a narrative that perpetuates harmful stereotypes about gay men. Just because they claim this doesn’t mean that they’re correct or haven’t unknowingly included something really harmful.

Anyway sorry about the length of this. I wanted to be thorough. Hope this all makes sense.

(Long post) Before I post the zoo photos, I need to show you this thing I found at the store.

So I was at the store a few days ago, and I was near the “organic” food section–they keep it near the drinks. And I saw…

How the hell do you “infuse hydrogen” into water. Hydrogen is already in the water.

Generally regarded as safe. What in the world are you doing with water that it’s only generally regarded as safe.

Also, this can all be summed up in the phrase “drink water, it’s good for you.”

Well gee, thanks for telling me there’s hydrogen in H2O. I would have had no idea otherwise.

anonymous asked:

what is the fandom drama in the tag about?

I have an idea of what it’s about, but I don’t really have details.

There was a blog created a few months back that was… uh… in disagreement with other people’s interpretation of characters and pairings. And periodically would call out users for it. (I blocked said blog because I strongly disagree with how they were handling their posts, so I have no idea what happened).

However, it reached a boiling point recently (which is the drama we see in the tag right now). Some users that ran the blog have been called slurs because of their mental conditions, and some other unrelated to the blog have been insulted because of what they enjoy in the fandom.

That is what I know.

anonymous asked:

What made you decide to come up with a kingdom for Rennali? I've been really curious for a while and you probably answered this ages ago, but I may have missed it.

I don’t think I’ve answered this, honestly, but here it goes:

My biggest influence was @regalswag, and @lurvyx who pushed me into it. I saw how well Blood of Lordaeron was doing and was so engrossed in their story that it was suggested by some of my own guild members that we elevate Rennali. The idea of being able to create your own space and fill it with writing that is objectively better than the crap Blizzard had been putting out was fun. 

A lot of people shit on the idea of having your own made-up kingdom, because they all had their own ideas of what was “acceptable RP” and what wasn’t. Over time, we all had fun with it, and that was the point of it: Those who are part of it and intrigued by it are having fun with it and helping it grow. Quel’Athillien eventually grew from being just a mirrored concept of Blackmarsh to its own, unique monster. It had its own stories, its own history, and the more we played with it, the bigger it got. 

I am certainly not happy where it is now, but it will make a triumphant return and will get bigger and better with time. It is simply a matter of putting forth the effort in building in places we left open and inviting more and more creative minds to add to it. Blood of Lordaeron will always be the model I started emulating, but I have every intention of ensuring that Quel’Athillien will always be its own. 

actually-autistic-anime  asked:

Do you have any advice for someone who wants to start their own imagines blog? I love your work, and you've made me want to have my own blog like yours (but with Free! since I'm Free trash)

(Omg I’m Free! trash also. If you do start this blog pls hmu)

I’m going to be honest and say that I never expected this blog to become popular or anything. I’ve basically bullshitted my way to this point and I have no idea what makes my blog so great. Anyways, this is just what I personally think makes an imagine blog successful

  1. Have a simple theme. Your followers will be here to read your work, so being super visually stimulating isn’t really a priority. Choose contrasting colors (probably lighter ones for the background and darker ones for text) and have an easy to read font.
  2. Tag your work. It’s an easy way for people to find your writing while they search tags for content. It also helps people find other works within your blog (i.e. if they want to find more of your work about Haru, they can just search your blog and it will all be there).
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask for shoutouts. I know it can be intimidating to approach other bigger blogs about it, but just do it! I’d say that 9/10 blogs will be happy to give you a quick shoutout. I promise it doesn’t hurt, and you’d be surprised how many people will discover you that way! (you can ask me if you’d like!)
  4. Create a rules page. Just as your followers have expectations for your blog, you should have expectations of your followers. Just lay down what you’re comfortable writing and what you aren’t. Having guidelines will ensure that you can stay within your comfort zone at all times. Also, don’t be afraid to refuse requests you’re not comfortable with. I promise you won’t be hurting anyone’s feelings; it’s not that big of a deal.
  5. Make sure you enjoy it! It’s just a blog, hun. I know for a while I was really struggling to put this blog after my happiness. I was neglecting my health and responsibilities in order to put my followers first. DO NOT DO THAT. I swear on my life that it isn’t worth it. Put yourself first, then your blog. Forcing yourself to write won’t allow you to have fun with it. And, you guessed it, if you don’t have fun, you won’t want to run the blog anymore. Just do what makes you happy!

I hope this helps you! Good luck with your blog, and please direct me in the direction of your blog once you get going! I’d love to read your work :3 If you have any other questions or need any advice, feel free to message me, and the ask box is always open! Have fun, love! <3

Someone else on tumblr pointed out that PASSENGERS might have been a more meaningful movie if it was about just THE ONE person dealing with being alone on the ship for the rest of their life.  And if, to cope, they go through and make it a point to learn everything they can about all of the other people on the ship.

And I just keep thinking about this idea.

As someone who, overall, enjoyed fantastic beasts, it really causes a lot of issues for the worldbuilding

I think fantastic beasts really highlights a flaw in jkrs writing. Mainly, how the rules for her world really only work if you consider white people, and totally fall apart when you consider the same world from anyone else’s point of view.

The idea that in america you can have 0 contact with no-majs is fine, if 1. Everyone is white and/or 2. Magic is entirely hereditary. But neither or those ia true.

The movie takes place, what 60 years after slavery was abolished? What happened when a wizard was born a slave? Were they left to form an obsurial? (No, they say there hadnt been one for centuries in america) were they whisked away to the magical world and expected to leave their relatives to rot in slavery?

The movie takes place 30 years after the wounded knee massacre. What about magical children born in native communities? Are they invited to ilvermony? Do they let their communities be butchered?

What will happen in less than 20 years when japanese internment camps begin? Will witches and wizards of Japanese heritage just pack up and go to the camps too? Will they go into hiding and leave their potentially nonmagical families?

Jk seems content to act as though the Wizarding world has no racsim and instead uses magic vs nomaj tensions as an allegory. But that doesnt work when you have muggle born wizards who would be affected by racism in the nonmagical world.

And i dont think jk has ever even considered this. And it shows.

Thanks Kids!

You can stop reblogging this. You guys are amazing and have helped me oh so much thank you for blessing me and my family. We will have the best Christmas ever thanks to you! Happy Holidays and bless you all.
