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!

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!

Alright, im new to tumblr, only really made an account, and kept track because of you, but there is one thing that is really annoying me, and i dont know if its me, tumblr, or specifically yours, but whenever i scroll down a little bit, tumblr likes to reset the page and randomize some of the posts, so after scrolling down about 1-2 pages worth, it wont let me see whats below that T_T do you know what the problem is?

Not a clue I’m afraid.

Awesome followers who are far more knowledgeable than I, any offers on the answer to this?

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

dadarismus replied to your post: I’ll be the annoying kid and ask: what beef?

There was so much beef in every fucking corner but that kind of ended? Im glad because it was annoying af. But yea even tho everything is chill now and we all kinda get along everything is also too chill between everyone

guess the beef kinda created some sort of awkwardness between everyone ?

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.
