i hold the world

So regarding Markiplier’s most recent video, I’m actually not gonna rag on him about what’s bumming him out. We’ve all got things that bother us, and while it may seem very first-world-problem-y, I won’t hold it against him to feel bad about his own problems.

But there are still issues, which are twofold:

1. He did not and still hasn’t spoken up to protect others when talking about *other peoples’* issues in videos. When the PDP thing happened, he simply asked everyone to calm down, and didn’t add on that certain types of speech are straight-up inappropriate. He could have used his platform as a voice of reason against hate speech, but instead treated the majority of speech as hate.

2. This recent video comes at a time where those previously hurt individuals are now even more silent without Markiplier’s voice actively supporting them. That he talks of his own problems so deeply and heartfully, while not doing fully for others in their time of need. That he looks for guidance and approval from his audience, while not giving the same attention to some of the disenfranchised within his audience.

I just want him to understand that the disconnected feeling is more than a scale or fame thing. He may have forgotten in the scope of the internet that his audience is full spectrum: girls and boys, women and men, gay, straight, religious or atheist, and everything in between. It’s easy to default all comments behind one voice and many avatars.

So when he does what he needs to, and feels more reconnected with his audience, I hope he remembers that again. And more importantly, that he then stands up for his followers first, and protects them against hate speech as his followers do for him.

TL;DR: I have no sympathy or ill will in regards to the video. I just really hope he learns and understands why some of his audience feels the way they do in the wake of this.

E! STEVE AOKI WAS DJING AT THE CLUB I WORK AT LAST NIGHT AND HE STOPPED THE MUSIC AND SAID "THIS IS A NEW SONG WITH MY DEAR FRIEND LOUIS TOMLINSON" AND PLAYED 'JUST HOLD ON' REMIXED BUT BEFORE THAT I SHOUTED "LOUIS TOMLINSON DESERVES THE WORLD" ALL THE WAY FROM MY BAR AND HE LOOKED UP AND SAID "FUCK YEAH HE DOES"

i hope your 24th year is the best one yet, and i hope you get spoiled with lots of cake, cuddles, and gifts today 💓 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, M’DEAR🎈🎂🎁🎉❤️

• Andi Mack: diverse cast, interesting plot line with continuity, the adults aren’t dumb, the kids have a life outside of school, a actual true progressive show we’ve been waiting for on the Disney channel.

• GMW analyst blogs: Uh, idk, this show isn’t for me. It’s not aimed towards my age group. It’s for little kids . I wished that Girl Meets Mayo had the same freedom tho. Disney Channel was just holding back GMW. Didn’t allow them to be free.

🎶 Can’t say how the days will unfold,
Can’t change what the future may hold,
But I want you in it,
Every hour, every minute.

This world can race by far too fast,
Hard to see while it’s all flying past,
But it’s clear now,
When you’re standing here now,
I am meant to be
Wherever you are next to me.

All I wanna do is come running home to you,
Come running home to you.
And all my life I promise to keep running home to you,
Keep running home, to you.

And I could see it right from the start,
Right from the start,
That you would be, be my light in the dark,
Light in the dark.
Oh, you gave me no other choice but to love you.

All I wanna do is come running home to you,
Come running home to you.
And all my life I promise to keep running home to you,
Keep running home, to you.

Can’t say how the days will unfold,
Can’t change what the future will hold,
But I want you in it,
Every hour, every minute. 🎶

Iris West…

Will you marry me?

—  Barry Allen’s full proposal to Iris West

If Steve Aoki heralds the beginning of a new chapter for Louis, I am ALL FOR IT. We have a man who supports Louis like a brother, recognizes his talent, and celebrates and acknowledges the fandom, working as Louis’ partner in all of this. Also, did we mention he’s a gender studies major? I love Steve Aoki and I’m excited for what this collaboration will bring.

Why INFJs Are Quiet

I want to feel safe when I talk.

I genuinely have nothing to say right now.

You don’t seem interested.

I am thinking.

My inner world is calling. Please hold.

I’m censoring my stream-of-conscious ramblings… because clouds, broccoli, and my grandma don’t connect in your world.

I’m trying to figure out what to say.

You make me uncomfortable, so it’s easier to look awkward and be quiet.

I’m extremely hurt and would rather get you back later by undermining your psyche than throw shallow insults now.
