i mean that's what the post is about

tobermoriansass replied to your post “listen, if marvel had gone with the “some people are born with…”

Dude I’m sorry but I’m going to have to go with you’re missing the forest for the trees here

Especially given the mcu’s sociopolitical track record like. What is the point of nitpicking? I’m sorry but I really can’t see it dude.

Dude i’m sorry but I definitely think it’s reasonable for me to want to discuss the mcu’s storytelling issues in a post (which was part of a series of posts) in reaction to an argument that the sokovia accords and trump’s muslim ban are essentially the same thing. Especially given the current political climate and fandom’s recent state of “anyone I don’t agree with is definitely a bigot”.

What is the point of adding this reply? I’m sorry but I really can’t see it dude. I’m going to have to go with you considering “trying to encourage nuanced thinking and fact-based discussions of the mcu’s major plot points as they could relate to our own world on my own time on my own blog for fun because i genuinely care about this and want to talk about it and am not hurting anyone by doing so” as a waste of time and energy is…like…Your Own Problem, dude

So here’s the thing, on this blog i make lighthearted posts about being a lesbian who likes swords, like “put [this sword] on your blog if you are gay”

And most of the time interactions with this blog are just people finding my posts fun or relatable having a chortle and tagging themselves, their friends, or sometimes theorising which fictional character runs this blog. it’s just some good fun that i and many others enjoy

But very regularly i get straight people saying ‘but what about straight people’ like. all the time. its very annoying.

cause guess what! im not straight! i dont care. go write your own posts, im not writing Relatable Posts for straight people thats not my job why would i do that

however every time im like ‘i dont care about straight people on my gay blog or in my gay life at all actually’ i get inundated with replies about how Mean And Evil i am because im not making jokes for their consumption

In which case i am just a mean evil gay because im not going to start catering to straight people on my gay blog about being gay and liking swords ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That’s definitely not the first thing that should have come to mind, Kuroo

(tho it looks like no one really minds

aside from bokuto that is)

Thank you for your patience, or silent indifference, whichever it was. This year it was a bit harder doing these every week and I appreciate that you all still enjoy them.

The other thing is like….. let’s just all pretend that aphobia exists as an axis to be oppressed upon, and that all non-aces/aros (regardless of orientation) had non-ace/aro privilege and oppressed a-spec people

Why would aces/aros want to be in a community with their non-ace/aro oppressors? the LGBT+ community was formed because lgbp people and trans people had enough in common with regards to oppression that it did (and still does!) make sense for the two groups to work together. Transphobia can sometimes include misdirected homophobia (because people think trans people are “really just gay” or whatever other transphobic bullshit), and at the time the community formed society as a whole had a less nuanced and more incomplete understanding of gender, meaning the line between sexuality and gender was a lot less defined than it is today (remember the “is Marsha P Johnson a trans woman?” discourse that’s still going on? Yeah that)

But if aphobia was based off whether someone felt sexual/romantic attraction (although all evidence of “aphobia” has always been based off someone’s behavior and not their feelings, let’s continue to pretend aphobia is a distinct form of oppression that targets a-spec people) then wouldn’t non-ace/aro LGBT+ people be the oppressors of aces? And wouldn’t you want your community to be free of your oppressors with all their violent aphobia? Wouldn’t it not only be harmful to the ace community as a whole, but also to the individual aces/aros who would be victims to aphobia from non-ace LGBT+ people, to deliberately create your spaces in your oppressors’ community?

And I know everyone is going to pull the whole “transphobic gays” thing, and I really don’t mean to act like that’s not an issue or not relevant, because it is, but when the LGBT+ community was formed, our society hardly had the language to differentiate between straight trans people and cis gay people, especially if those trans people didn’t medically transition. The point is, even within LGBT+ spaces/communities, there are allowances for trans-only spaces and resources. But again, by and large, many of the issues that trans/non-cis people and lgbp people face are intrinsically linked because of society’s inability to separate sexuality and gender. (This doesn’t mean cis gay people can’t be transphobic and that their transphobia is any less harmful to trans people than that from cishets, 

So although homophobia and transphobia tend to go together (although they certainly don’t always!), aphobia would be an entirely separate thing. So why would aces want to not only have non-ace people (their “oppressors”) in their spaces, but actually create their spaces within the spaces built for their oppressors?

TL;DR If the mean alloLGs were really your oppressors you wouldn’t want to create your safe community spaces within our spaces because it would put you in danger

@fedoracat @k0k0luvshetalia @kylerinvention

ugh i’m trying to compose an eloquent text post about this but i’ve erased it like four times now but like. there’s nothing wrong with being a moderate - in politics and in cultural stuff like fandom and everything else. a person doesn’t need to be Dead To You for saying one wrong thing. and on the flipside (and this is more my point), a generally shitty person (like jason kenney, or fucking like john mccain or someone) shouldn’t be Your God & Bae now for saying one right thing. don’t be reactionary, and don’t be polemic. don’t be inflammatory when you’re arguing with someone; they’re not an enemy to be destroyed. the end.

i can’t stop thinking about what kind of criers dan and phil would be. i feel like dan’s crying would be a slow build up. his eyes just get watery at first, and he tries so hard to keep it in, but eventually the tears start cascading down his cheeks. he’d get a runny nose and his forehead would crease out of frustration because he hates crying, but he does it all the time. when his crying hits its peak, he’d be a blubbering mess, wiping furiously at his tears and constantly blowing his nose. he doesn’t like to be comforted while he’s crying, but when he’s finished and all that’s left is tear stained cheeks, he’d cling to the closest thing, preferably another person that would play with his hair, rub his back, and comfort him quietly.

phil on the other hand is a quiet crier. it happens really suddenly because he’s not afraid to be emotional and soft. his tears build up and he doesn’t try to hold them back. his eyes get red and puffy, and he tries to wipe away the tears quickly with his sleeve. he gets sniffly, but hides it by taking deep breaths through his mouth. his eyes are glossy and doe-like when his crying reaches the climax. he likes to be held the whole way through, even if it’s just someone holding his hand or resting a hand on his knee. physical contact calms him down and helps him feel more real. his favorite thing is when people rub their fingers up and down his arm, it nearly lulls him to sleep, but it distracts him from whatever it is he’s crying about.

this post is over TWO YEARS OLD so please stop reblogging it!!! the information in the post is incredibly inaccurate and honestly the entire post is flaming hot garbage

AND ANOTHER THING!!! please stop taking everything you see on tumblr so seriously. if you wanna learn more about asexuality, google it. go to websites dedicated to the information. do your own research. educate yourself. you’ll be thankful for it later trust me

you ever get really emo bc youre thinking about nct dream and how theyre all gonna grow up together and become adults together one day and through everything, they’ve done it together and i mean they got their first win together and what other feats are they gonna accomplish together next?? like !!! binch !!!!! nct dream created youth and friendship!!!!!!!!

Undiagnosed is not a synonym for “faking your symptoms.”

Granted, the presence of those symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean that you have the condition associated with them.  But it’s important to remember that everyone who had both the symptoms and the diagnosis started with just the former.  The lack of a diagnosis doesn’t make your symptoms less real.

bukkakespoon replied to your post: I wonder if all the things and people that are…

I seriously think I’ve never seen or heard you talking bad about any style or subculture in that way, so why would you suddenly now? It wouldn’t make any sense. It almost feels like this person purposely misunderstood what you said, but let’s not assume that. Putting all this asside

Yeahh thats why I’m so pissed.😂 I can’t honestly really think of any entire fashion styles I’d even really THINK badly of let alone speak badly of. I mean I’m sure there are fashions out there where I’d probably think “Wow no that looks terrible”, but I can’t see myself actually saying it. I mean even styles that couldn’t be further from mine (Like Ganguro, Yamanba, even the self proclaimed “bimbo” style) are pretty cool and interesting to me!

And good god, if I were to insult someone’s style I wouldn’t ever call them fake like, god damn, I wear plenty of makeup, fake eyelashes, fake nails, contact lenses, I 100% want plastic surgery… can you imagine if I went around calling people fake? LOL. Its one of the insults that I find absolutely fucking stupid. 

My point is, although the more mainstream YouTubers I watch may be absolutely lovely, its sad not having more people to watch that I have more in common with. Same way I absolutely ADORE my non-goth friends with every inch of my soul, but it still makes me sad that I don’t have any close IRL goth friends, you know?

Doesn’t help that I’m already just in a foul mood today tbh so its just immediate WOW FUCK YOU lmao

Sweet summer child Yugyeom’s struggles during girlfriend-related missions

@taylorswift I just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I have never met you, but I’ve seen you in concert nine times, and I’ve interacted with you on here multiple times, and thats what I want to say thank you for. Despite the fact that you have millions of fans, you have chosen to like some of my posts, my personal posts, and my me feel special and important. I can’t even express how much that means to me, and how happy it makes me that you take time out of your day to learn about my life, my struggles, and my accomplishments. Its so refreshing and reassuring to know that you’re aware of how much you’ve helped me recently. I love you so so much. Thank you Tay.

You got some negative reactions for #1112 and I'm really sorry about that, it was all my fault! I hadn't read the books in a while when I sent that in and I was really stupid in not even thinking to check my facts! From what I remembered, they had both gone to Hogwarts, and I didn't mean to do any character bashing, it was simply an assumption that could have been made if I was right, as most of these are, but I was incorrect and overstepped a line. So so sorry! Didn't mean to upset anyone! 😰

Hi sweet heart, it’s Emily here. I’ve been running this blog for 5 years now and something that I’ve learned is to not let people’s reactions bother me. There are always people who will get offended and yell about a headcanon: That couldn’t be possible because it deviates slightly from canon! That is awful because it disses the character I like! That is just W R O N G because it doesn’t follow my own headcanon ideas!

I’ve really heard it all. So please don’t be upset or blame yourself for the reaction to #1112! Your submission was perfectly fine- even we sometimes forget what actually happened in the books but who cares!? If you want to headcanon that Grindelwald went to Hogwarts too then by all means go ahead! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we can say whatever we want in headcanon. The whole point is that it isn’t canon so why not have fun and do something creative? 

If the headcanon isn’t something that could seriously harm someone in real life- which yours obviously didn’t do- then I don’t see the problem in posting it even if it completely deviates from canon. So don’t get discouraged and don’t worry about us! I hope that despite people’s negativity, you still feel comfortable sending in more submissions soon <3

I really couldn't care less about Abel, the only thing I have to say is I'll be happy when Bella has a new relationship because she's so supportive, it's cute to see. He posted some pics a few times but she was SO supportive of him with the videos and posts she made, I'm a girl and bi and I'd date her so fast lol. She's girlfriend goals and one day someone will see and appreciate that and treat her like she deserves to be treated. Until then I love how happy and successful she is now.

One of the things I’ve always said I loved about Bella is how supportive, loving, and comfortable she is being affectionate with her loved ones the way she is. It’s so clear she cares deeply for the people in her life and is always there for them. I would really love to see her be in a relationship where not only is that appreciated from her but reciprocated. Almost everything we saw and got from their relationship was initiated by and/or shared by Bella and I want her to be with someone that wants to love and show her off as much as she wants to love and show off because she is a very supportive person, especially with him and that’s an amazing thing and I really hope she’ll get someone real who’ll put energy into her like that. 

Bella seems alright now; she has a lot of her family and real friends always with her lately so I know she’s being loved up and taken care of by then. It’s a new era for Bella and I hope she rides it out single for a while and focuses on work and reflect on everything that’s happened so she can find someone who deserves her attention later and that she can share in the happiness with.

That post about the scientologist quote is freaking me the fuck out! For you to do that means you 100% genuinely whole heartedly are blinded by that message and totally believe it. He's dedicated to that cult and thats scary! Juliet is a brainwashing lunatic. I hate that she ruined Andy and changed him and took him away from his friends. One day shell get what she deserves. I hate her! Shes truly scum! And i can only imagine how many other times shes physically abused him.

Possible distinguishing social/cultural feature of humans from aliens #5483

What if we were the only species in the galaxy/universe that didn’t treat everyone who’s reached sexual maturity/had puberty as full-blown adults? Like when other species have their equivalent of their first period or their voice cracking or all that stuff, they’re considered old enough to drink/vote/go to war/smoke/other adult exclusive activities?

Maybe they’d look at humans and ask why we bar a specific set of adults from partaking in more fun activities like gambling, not thinking of it as a maturity issue or not knowing that, as teens, we’re still growing both physically and mentally? A conversation between moms would get awkward.

“My daughter’s shell is browning, oooh, I’m so proud!“
“hey, congrats! Good luck beating off the suitors with a stick, huh?”
“Well, when she gets that apartment she’s been looking at all week, I suppose I’ll pass on that advice!”
“wait, you said she just started to brown, right? I thought that happened after only 9 years, she’s still just a baby!”
“What’re you talking about? Didn’t your daughter move out and start a family when she got her period?”
“What? No! She can hardly talk on the phone and dust the den at the same time, what makes you think she’d be ready to file taxes?”

now did I promise myself and a couple other people that I wasn’t going to crack another daddy joke any time soon after this fiasco? yes. yes I did. but then some certain other people persuaded me that this one needed to be done. and I’m deeply sorry, but I succumb easily to peer pressure.

but hey did anyone catch my reference to a certain piece of zootopia fan art
