idk what to title this as i struggled

I’m currently in the middle of a very hectic exam week at uni with my majors trying to outdo each other in terms of difficulty. While I will get to the requests in my inbox after this week, I made a quick little thing to sate my mind for the time being. 

WHAT IF Billy had his own title ??? It could revolve around him being the Sorcerer Supreme-in-Training where we see his adventures in the multiverse, the full extent of his powers, and his struggle with the great responsibility that comes with such great power. IDK man ( also this was heavily inspired by the Scarlet Witch title !!! AHHH I LOVE ITS ART SO MUCH  )

i stg i’m cursed like….i’ve been struggling to come up with a title for this one fic and literally every time, every time i think i’ve finally thought of a title i like i look it up & see there’s already a voltron fic with that title like……what the Fuck

So I've recently come out and for awhile was identifying as queer, but for the past few weeks I've identified as lesbian. I was really at home with the title at first, it felt spot on and really empowering. But now I'm really struggling internally to know what's compulsory heterosexuality and not. I'll see I guy who's attractive and feel this weird pang of confusion. Like there's a voice inside saying give another guy a chance, when internally I'm like, really wanting to be with women. Idk man



Totally. One way to spot those compulsory heterosexuality feelings is just to ask yourself do I feel comfortable? 

If every time you have the thought that a man is attractive or that you should give men a chance, you feel uncomfortable or upset or otherwise just bad, then you are probably just experiencing compulsory het. 

One way to think of it is: If you saw a woman who was a conventionally attractive stranger, would you feel instant pressure to try to pursue or date her? Probably not. It’d take courage to even start flirting. Say she’s pretty but not really someone you click with– would you feel like you should pursue a relationship anyway or just try, just in case?

If not, why would you feel that just recognizing someone’s attractiveness compelled you to pursue them? Why does that only apply to men and not women? Because you’re facing cultural pressure to form relationships with men. 

And because of this, lesbians often are convinced that the only way to avoid relationships with men is by insisting to the world that we can’t date them. It’s not our fault! Don’t punish us! We were born this way and it won’t work!  And that’s a totally reasonable defense mechanism in a world that does punish women for not dating men. But it has the side effect that any time it seems even remotely plausible that we might, maybe be able to make a relationship with a man work if we forced ourselves to, then we get this very subconscious worry that maybe we’re lying about it being impossible for us, and maybe that means we deserve punishment for not trying hard enough to force feelings for men. And that’s terrifying. 

But listen– many lesbians have forced themselves to live years of their lives with men. There are so many women who stay closeted. Most lesbians can do that. But that does not mean that we should. It’s deeply unhealthy to be closeted, and it causes severe mental health problems in many women (myself included) to force yourself to be with men. And it’s absolutely wrong and oppressive for anyone to insist that lesbians date men just because it’s theoretically possible. You shouldn’t need to sacrifice your happiness. You should be allowed to form relationships with who YOU want to. You absolutely do not deserve punishment for that. Anyone contributing to making you feel that way is very dangerous to your wellbeing. 

That’s why I stress so often that you can decide to date exclusively women no matter what. You are allowed to only date women if that’s what you want. Even if a conventionally attractive, sweet, caring man who is crazy about you asks you out you can turn him down just for being a man. 

Your life is YOURS. We only get a handful of decades on this earth, if you want to spend those decades dating women, then fuck men. You don’t have to date them.

Oil paints, overalls, and combat boots

holy shit i didn’t think anyone was actually looking at my blog, especially so quickly after i posted. thank you ❤️

oil paints: what would you title the autobiography of your life so far?
hmm, this is a hard one. probably something like (rage)nder which is overly edgy lmao

overalls: what would you do with one billion dollars?
i really can’t even imagine that amount of money. i struggle between criticizing capitalism and allowing myself and my family to be materialistically comfortable with this one. would definitely live abroad and help my mom out and donate to fucktons of grassroots organizations that deserve more recognition than they get, make films idk… honestly that kind of money scares me it’s so much

combat boots: are you a very forgiving person? do you like being this way?
yeah, i’d say i’m a pretty forgiving person. sometimes too forgiving which is dumb. i let people push me around but i do believe in forgiveness in some situations for healing (you do NOT have to forgive someone in order to heal though)

INTP–ENFP Seasonal Debate

Both are walking out of class, since it was cancelled due to technical difficulties.

INTP: Wow, I feel like there’s so much time left in today, as opposed to when we usually get out of class. This is exciting, I don’t even know what to do.

ENFP: You can go play in the leaves! That’s what I would be doing, if I didn’t have another class in today.

INTP: I… don’t think that’s something I would want to do.

ENFP: But it’s Falllllll, INTP, it’s the best.

INTP: Why is Fall you’re favourite?

ENFP: You know, it’s not too hot, or too cold, there’s hot chocolate, and campfires, and leaves to play in!

ENFP: What about you, though? Fall isn’t yours?

INTP: No, I actually really like Winter.

ENFP: noooooooo

ENFP: No, because it’s cold and all the leaves are gone.

INTP: Yeah, I know, it’s great. It’s cold, and quiet, and nobody is around, it’s like I’m the last person on Earth, I love it.

ENFP: Noooo, INTP, I don’t like Apocalypse the Season.

INTP: It’s not apocalyptic!

ENFP: It’s totally apocalyptic!

INTP: Just because it’s quiet and it feels like I’m the only one around, does not make Winter apocalyptic.

INTP: The fact that I like to pretend that I’m the sole survivor of some terrible ice age / world-wide tragedy that has left me to wander and struggle against the abandoned Earth in its silent, hostile environment is what makes it apocalyptic.

ENFP: Oh my god.

I had a lot of time to kill at work and for my commute home today so I listened to the Archive of American Television interviews with Julian Fellowes (part 1 and part 2) and Gareth Neame that were done on May 4, 2014.

The interviews are collectively two and a half hours long so I thought I’d type up interesting Downton-related bits that I hadn’t really heard before. A lot of it is about the scripting process.
