What she means:
The fact that Hunk and Coran are the only two people out of team voltron that appreciate lance makes me sick to the stomach. Lance is smart, caring, and has amazing leadership skills. He is MUCH more than he thinks he is. How 5 of the 7 people out of Team Voltron push him to the side and don't listen to him even when he makes valid points because of his flirty and joking nature is ridiculous. Lance has saved people on the team and outside of it multiple times, and the fact that they don't take that into consideration or appreciate it is horrible and breaks my heart. In season 1 where he spots rover but can tell it's not the REAL rover is a big thing. When it turns into a bomb, his first instinct it to shield coran from it. Later in that season when Lance and Keith are on the balmera trying to stop the galra ships, Keith's first instinct is to rush in and attack while lance stops him and reminds him that the balmera is a living animal and that they can't attack.So lance comes up with a strategic plan to trap in the ships while not damaging the balmera and keeping their task and presence hidden. In season 2 when lance and hunk are in the underwater kingdom and the when the queen pleas to lance that she doesn't know what was going on and cares about her kingdom lance figures out that the food was mind swishing everyone but the baku got the queen first so that's why it was abe to control the rest of the kingdom. He figures this out in 0.05 seconds. In Jailbreak when lance gets the Yupper when sneaking out a galra approaches him and the first thing lance does is jump in front of the yupper and says "stay away from my friend" Lance deserves so much more from the characters in the show and how the creators treated him in season 2 was appalling. I hope he gets the screentime and respect he deserves without being dumbed down to comic relief in future seasons.
i just want to choose something small every day to fall in love with. how often do i really just like… study the heck out of a sunbeam. learn a new word and find out how to use it, teach it to others. watch birds because birds are nice. find a new favorite color. to find out something about each person in my life to compliment them on that’s genuine and better than “you’re pretty,” i mean realizing they always get water for other people before they sit down at lunch or how neat their notes are or how they always have a good pun. i want to listen harder and talk a little less and say more important stuff. and i want to watch out for stuff to just obsess over like a cool cloud or a tree and just. learn stuff from people. ask more questions about how her hair is so silky and just. fall in love with everybody.
“I recently read a powerful quote that summed up a lot of this for me. It’s from a book of essays called “The View from Flyover Country” by a journalist named Sarah Kendzior, and she talks about the dangerous ideology behind these attacks on the social safety net. And here’s what she says:
“When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. Think about that for a moment. She goes on to make this point: This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatize those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.”
how I feel about people saying that my art is good cause of talent
*looks at art* Wow you have so much talent I wish I could draw like that.
Listen here. What you see isn't talent. In fact 1% is talent and only thanks to my parents complimenting my ability to pick up a crayon and draw a circle at age four. 99% of this is hard work, crying, giving up, starting again, and accepting the fact your art will never be as perfect as you want it to be. Creating art is a skill. I didn't spend ten years of my life suffering through art for all of it to be dismissed as "talent". If you want to get as good as me or even better at art, all you have to do is do it. I'm not talented. I'm stubborn.
What you think I mean:
I want everyone to stop fighting
What I actually mean:
I want shippers to stop promoting abusive/pedophilloic/homophobic tropes. I want them to stop making porn of minors. I want fandom to be a safe space where I don't have to worry about fujoshis and pedophiles. I want a fucking break. I want to be able to reblog art without later finding out an abuser/pedophile drew it. I want people to stop being gross.
ata: it’s like “oh okay” but it evolved to SOMETHING ELSE and you can use anytime you dont know what to say. “you need a 12/10 to finish this subject” “ata” / “My mom died and my cat is sick and my hair is falling off!!” “…ata”
treta: drama, or a clusterfuck. Like I'm so tired of drama = Cansei de tanta treta. (but we love drama)
arrombado: someone annoying or really lucky. “He won the best prize. Arrombado”
tua cara: reminds you of someone, translates to your face. “I just saw a band shirt so cool. Tua cara”
teu cu: your asshole. You know that thing you said about me? Now its about your asshole. “Dude you are so ugly I want to scream and die” “teu cu”
caguei: it translates to basically “I shitted”. Like bullshit, you don’t care. “so then Privilege McWhite kissed Banana CreamCracker” “caguei”
corno: men whose wife cheated on him, insult. “A corno like him can’t talk shit about anyone”
porre: LOTS of alcohol. “Tomei um porre” = “I drank WAY too much”
safado: someone without morals. “he just go around saying he loves them and then leaves out of nowhere” “Safado!”
nego: it would translate to n*gger, but here it lost basically all the meaning, I dont even know if it had a racist conotation to start. sometimes, you mean “sweatheart” like: “your baby is so cute” “meu nego <3″
cabueta: a tattletale. “he just told the teacher I cheated!” “Cabueta morre cedo” (tattletales die young)
oião: big eyes, someone who envy others often. “I want your dress” “saí daí (get out), oião”
ai dentu: its basically some kind of annoyed “fuck”, like when someone says something stupid, annoying or obviously a lie “I wish Brazil had a president like Trump” “aí dentu”
tribufu: ugly bitch
rapariga: bitch, and a rebelious act against portugal (where rapariga just means girl)
boçal: thinks very highly of themselves, are annoying for that. “She said she doesnt want to ride the bus” “ Ela é muito boçal”
Why it is unarguably wrong to write porn/smut/18+ material about a minor:
It is taking advantage of them.
It promotes pedophilia.
It encourages young kids to think it is harmless to do these things when they can actually get seriously hurt/get kidnapped/get killed/orbecome involved in an abusive relationship.
It promotes rape culture and unhealthy relationships.
It can make them feel unsafe, dirty, and uncomfortable in their own skin.
I’m not saying this to be “hateful” or “bossy,” nor do I think I am these kid’s parent. I am not saying this because of selective morals either. I am saying this because this has proven to have lifelong physical and psychological damage to children all around the world and no one should EVER promote this or let it slide.
Child porn is NOT OKAY and NEVER will be because what it does to people will NEVER CHANGE.
Do not support child porn nor create it. That’s final.

You need to focus to get one place to another.
Other people may notice differences in your speech. You might not be able to.

Hey fun fact the LGBT community was not founded as and is not a fun little party it was founded to protect each other and express things freely in safe spaces.
This whole mentality of “well technically, you’re not straight, so come and join the fun kids!” Is so dumb and wrong. This isn’t a party or a club, and though it may act as a family or a support, it’s about being safe first and foremost.
My point is I’m tired of all the “come on in welcome to the party” mentality of inclusionists because it’s not a big fucking party and pride isn’t just “being happy you’re queer,” it’s about celebrating the fact that despite the brutal oppression we have faced, we are not broken and we are still going to love ourselves.
Ace people cannot feel this way because there is no systematic oppression of them, there’s nothing they prove by being part of this. You haven’t made it through anything based on you being ace that warrants the pride that this month is based off of. Because you are not LGBT.
I'm so sick of people saying how Harry and Hermione "changed time"
They didn’t change time.
They didn’t bring Sirius and Buckbeak back to life.
Sirius never died.
Nor did Buckbeak.
They had already gone back in time. Hermione almost fucked up and saw her future self in the forest behind Hagrid’s. Harry saved himself, and assumed it was his father because he was always told how much he looked like James.
These events were the same in both timelines. Neither were different.
All Dumbledore did was send Harry and Hermione back in time to make sure the events actually happened and the timeline was fulfilled.
