can slytherins be self destructive? im really determined to do what i want in life, bit im also extremely self sabotaging? so i will talk about needing high grades to get into the course i want, and i will, but then ill suddenly fall into a sharp decline, and start second guessing myself and being really self destructive, and i feel like this makes me not slytherin?

Sure they can ! It doesn’t make you less of a Slytherin, you’re still ambitious, but maybe a little afraid of failing and that’s why you self-sabotage? I’d say you’re definitely still a Slyth though!

honestly please continue to write lgbt+ people even if you dont fully understand their experiences, make mistakes and learn from them. interview community members for their perspectives. do the same research for anything else you don't know about and don't be afraid of having to say im sorry and be forthright and honest when you need to apologize. i trust that you are able to do all of this and i trust that you are able to evaluate your own assumptions <3

Thank you, anon! That’s my policy, to not be afraid to apologize when I misrepresent a group of people, but to keep writing! I appreciate your support! Honestly, thank you everyone who has sent messages like this or commented on that post. It means a lot to me!

I do want to explain a little bit more why I made that post though.

I don’t know exactly what that anon was having an issue with. I am open to learning and will be reading more LGBTQIA+ literature, of course, and understand that as a cis, white woman I have a lot of privilege. I understand that my personal experience isn’t a catch-all representation of the community.

I’m writing gay people from my experiences as a bi woman and also from contributing to safe spaces during my time at college. I’ve been the organizer of a fair few LGBTQIA+ events, including one where we talked about LGBTQIA+ representation in the media. I’ve marched in half a dozen protests and taken college level classes on the issues the community has faced, is facing, and will potentially face.

None of that means that I don’t make mistakes! What it means is that I care a lot about fixing those mistakes.

So it really bothers me when I don’t get that opportunity to address these issues because I do want to improve. 

Special thanks to @afanofmanystuffs, @elleleuthold, @la-rainette   and @starlightmagika who have all been very positive, encouraging and constructive! I love @lgbtqreads, I have so many more books on my reading list now!

(i hope it’s okay to screenshot this, want to make sure my gushing over one ship doesnt show up in another’s tags lol)

firstly, re: j///yong, I’m open to it! Idk i could realistically ship taeyong/anything so lol it just hasn’t really snagged me so far, i guess. also sobs im glad you like the fics my friend, even if you didn’t initially ship ♥♥

SO DOTAE!!!!! 

dotae for me started with the pure banter and playfulness? idk. i think at the beginning we saw so much of a taeyong that felt restricted and was constantly apologizing and maybe didn’t feel as though he could really… be himself? not to say he wasn’t himself, but i think it was hard for him to let the professionalism slip.


this whole interaction was probably the first moment where i was like oh my god… he IS a demon and i love it and doyoung knows it and he puts up with it and even expects it and smiles at it and im !!! there’s something kind of important about these types of relationships, where it doesn’t have to be polite or formal, where it comes off as bickering but in reality is just pure comfort. the banter wouldn’t be back and forth if it weren’t comfortable, you know?

also there’s a level of support that seems super obvious but a lot of people like to say it isnt there (why lol). taeyong has said a few times that dy understands him and helps him (see ivy club interview, this, nimdle, etc) idk i think it rubs me the wrong way when people act like dotae are legitimate like… enemies? or that they dont like each other, because its so obviously the opposite. i dont know how to describe it other than just being comfortable together. 

they also have this habit of gravitating towards one another during more intense/emotional situations? for example the award that nct 127 won, where this happened:

doyoung wasnt even in nct 127 at this point, and taeyong was very visibly anxious/nervous and not only did dy pick up on that/noticed during the announcement that ty was tense, but he immediately offers the hug (i could write a thesis on this moment lmao ill stop)

but then even cherry bomb’s first win and the nct u vlive vids with him constantly giving this sort of tactile reassurance/holding his hand/etc. not saying either of them get 0 comfort from the others, there’s just something a little bit… different about it. if that makes sense?

ok i’m going to end up writing a book if i continue on like this, so heres some cute shit and ill stfu:

that grabby thing they do!!

matching scars!!

and everything else here ok im done i promise

Sasha in Rio

Its gonna be a huge post bc im still in shock that i saw this beautiful human being so close to me laksksksk but here we go:

- her first performance was So Emotional with the dress ruveal and the rose petals and It was so so so beautiful! the crowd went absolutely crazy (and we also sang the whole song while she was lipsyncing)

-After that she gave the sweetest speech on how she never thought she would be able to travel the world with her drag to see the most amazing and fashionable crowd as in Rio. She also joked about how much this whole “come to Brazil” among drag queens is huge bc they actually want to come so badly, and then she was very sweet talking about the local queens and How the drag scene in Rio is amazing

-Second number was her Marlene Dietrich / deceptacon and I FREAKED THE FUCK OUT bc i absolutely love this number and id never thought she would be playing. Not only It was awesome but she seemed to be having such a great time!

-On her second pause she Gave the most amazing speech on How the world situation is bad on LGBT ppl, and how she knew of what was going on in Brazil and that the community need to reach out to eachother and we could count on her and on the american drag comunity. Honestly i felt like Sasha should become president of the world right there, It was the most inspirational thing. Also she Said that she always had people saying how her drag should be and she never listened and we should do the same

-her third number was My way and… Honestly, watching that performances on Youtube doesnt do any justice to convey what she does on stage. Is like out of this world and i cried on How touching it was. It wasnt perfect, but It was beautiful

-her final speech was the sweetest. She said she would never forget this night and she wanted to know how much she could thank us in portuguese and the Crowd said “obrigado!” To her. And then she told us that on her high school she used to listen to Tom Jobim and she sang a little bit of a song! It was the most adorable thing.

I was a bit afraid of this show bc i had a huge expectation and Sasha managed to go waaay beyond It. Not only on the performances but also on how kind and generous she really is. She seemed really emotional and happy to be in Rio. I thought i couldnt but i love her 102920292% more after today

Regarding Chris “Kirbopher” Niosi

This post has been ten years coming.

Now, let me preface this by saying that I know for a fact that very few people like Kirbopher, but because of the state of the animation and voiceover industries, no one has the courage to say it without looking like a drama stirrer. I have no attachment to any industry, although I used to date an animator/storyboarder. Every time the conversation of Kirb being an awful, disgusting person comes up online, several people chime in and a friend of mine and I have gotten followers because of it. Hell, I even hung out with Egoraptor and his friends, and we spent hours that night dragging Kirb for all he’s worth.

And yeah, haha, Kirb’s bad, funny joke, but no, it’s not just his art quality that’s (subjectively) not very great. Kirb is one of the most selfish, abusive people I have ever met. He is part of why I have no memory of the year 2011. This isn’t going to take the traditional form of a “callout” post, rather, I will be dissecting two chat logs and an email sent to me by him.

Some background: I met Kirbopher through Bryon “Psyguy” Beaubien, who I have called out previously, alongside their mutual friend CrikeyDave. I have also called out Kirb’s ex, Liz Losey. Here is the post, I recommend reading it for further context, as I remember her abuse very well, on top of Kirb’s part in it. I understand if you stop believing me at this point, but please understand that SuperPsyguy’s whole group of friends were either abusers or abuse victims. Kirb stayed for the longest out of all of them. Guess which one he was?

Anyway, I will explain the story through these logs. Thank you for listening.

Keep reading

okay I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and I think the reason I really don’t like when people comment things on their friends’ pictures like “artsy!!!1!!1 wow u r so artsy!!!!!” or when someone says it about themself when they take a picture or post something that they put effort into in order to make it look nice is because usually it’s meant in a sarcastic tone. Or you can tell the person’s afraid their friends will judge them or make fun of them for it, which I really don’t like because you should never make fun of someone for making art or wanting to take pictures that they think look pretty! that’s so awful and if someone’s afraid to do those things they might not ever immerse themselves into the art world as much as they want to or they might stop themselves from showing off really beautiful art because they’re embarrassed. making art is such an a amazing thing and no one should ever be embarrassed about it.
