is anyone actually going to reblog this

there’s a really important difference between “I love this villainous evil character because they make the story way more interesting but I recognise that they’re a terrible person who deserves to be dropkicked into the sun” and “I love this villainous evil character and I will defend them with my life they are a precious sinnamon roll here’s 10,000 words of meta about why their behaviour is justified here’s 8000 angsty headcanons about how they’re secretly insecure and probably abused here’s my dubious justification for why they deserve a completely unearned redemption arc even though they’ve shown zero remorse or desire to change at all yes I know they gleefully murdered a bunch of people but if you look really closely at this screenshot you’ll see their dad didn’t give them enough attention as a child so actually they’re the real victim here” 

some of my favorite silly plotlines from Scottish ballads
  • Small village thinks illicit whiskey stills are its biggest problem until raiders show up and trash their everything. Death, destruction, etc. Raiders find whiskey still, get lit, pass out. Villagers murder them. Peace restored. Whiskey is king.
  • Shepherd lad spots fair maid skinny-dipping. Fair maid pleads for her virtue and/or clothing. Shepherd lad is complete gentleman, escorts her home with clothing and virtue intact. Fair maid demands to know what she has to do to get laid around here.
  • Plucky heroine’s boyfriend goes to sea, fails to return. Plucky heroine dresses in drag and goes to find him. Plucky heroine discovers boyfriend happily married to someone else. Plucky heroine shoots his head right off.
  • Do Not Stop By The Local Weaver’s House, You Will Get So Pregnant, Like, Super Pregnant, I’m Not Kidding, This Has Been A Public Service Announcement.
  • Wealthy farmwife habitually searches her maidservants’ dorm for SIGNS OF MEN out of concern for their virtue. Maids less concerned for their virtue are having None Of It. Maids hide scarecrow in dorm, farm mistakes scarecrow for prowler, farmwife decapitates scarecrow. Farmwife believes herself a murderer. Maids now permitted to do as they please, virtue-wise. 
  • Idiot son sent to market to sell cow. Scheming lass seduces idiot son out of cow, pants, and even shoes.
  • Dad returns from business trip to find daughter Super Pregnant, demands to meet the man responsible. Dad takes one look at man responsible and tells daughter “okay, you’re off the hook, I would have banged him too.”
  • Handsome stranger bribes fair maid to leave town with him. Fair maid rejects various bribes until handsome stranger flat-out offers her money, which she accepts. Handsome stranger turns out to be, to no one’s great surprise, the actual devil. Fair maid regrets her life choices.
  • Gallant knight goes forth to slay dragon. Dragon eats knight, but has indigestion.

ETA: If anyone has been reblogging this and wants to know what the songs are, here is the list! Or if you’re too lazy to click things, The Devil Uisge Beatha + Shepherd Lad + Billy Taylor + Tae The Weaver’s Gin Ye Go + The Straw Man + Cow Song + Willie Winsbury + The Devil’s Courtship + Sir Eglamore

anonymous asked:

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that. 

paladins + tech hcs
  • shiro says he doesn’t mind, but he’s an apple guy at heart
    • don’t tell anyone but he just thinks his new, shiny, silver arm looks pretty dang great next to his shiny macbook and his space grey iphone. it’s for the aesthetic, lads
    • (space instagram goes crazy for it)
  • his iphone has a word password he doesn’t tell ANYONE and it’s always capitalised or has a number somewhere. he doesn’t even use touch id in case someone tries to force him into unlocking it. he values his privacy!
    • (by that, he means he values people not seeing his awkward ‘flirting’ with matt over text. most of it is star wars references.)
    • when he was at the garrison, keith tries to unlock shiro’s phone while he’s sleeping by pressing his thumb to the home button. it doesn’t work with any finger. when keith looks at shiro, he’s not even sleeping and looking at him with the biggest shit-eating grin
  • pidge can use any laptop immediately but is a windows supremacist. she appreciates the aesthetic from apple and everything but you can’t play ANY good pc games on mac so
  • lance: hey my mac is acting weird. can you help me pidge?
  • pidge: maybe you should have fucking thought twice about buying a macbook huh lance
    • screams when her faithful dell laptop lags and and lance’s macbook is still going strong
    • (also shushes her laptop when the fan whirrs. “don’t admit defeat now chad”)
  • lance shops exclusively at apple. probably has the rose gold 6s
    • “hey lance the leaked iphone 8 has no home button” “what the fuck”
    • “lance the leaks say that it doesn’t have touch id either??” “what the FUCK”
  • allergic to xperias. samsungs are okay, but they’re on thin ice. lance genuinely thinks he will Die if he ever lays his eyes on a windows phone bc the shock will kill him
  • “are you really poc if you don’t have whatsapp” -lance mcclain 2017
  • hunk doesn’t…. mind? and unlike shiro he truly means it. he doesn’t see or get the difference- considering processors, ram, and everything, there’s not too big of a gap. 
  • if he had to pick, he’d pick hp but only because that’s the only one he really knows/has ever owned
  • probably has a big samsung phone. his hands are Large and it’s hard for him to use little screens.
  • hunk knows he says he doesn’t mind, but he also can’t use macs.
    • is That Guy who curses under his breath when he realises the command/control button is placed differently on macs
  • keith has a fucking nokia
  • still thinks sony ericsson/walkman flip phones are on the market and are also The Best. he idolises the red ones. hunk has to break the news gently
  • when he finally gets a smartphone, it’s an 2015 sony android he got second hand. keith loves it and lance nearly has a stroke when he sees it
    • lance, mortified: what is that. what is that. keith, what is t
    • keith: it was red! :(
  • lance takes EVERY opportunity to get rid of it. he swears it’s cursed because it always finds it’s way back to keith. always.
    • he first just tries to break it and make it look like an accident, but he forgets xperias are virtually indestructible
    • lance later flushes it down the toilet, but it clogs the pipes and coran has to fish it out. 
    • keith: hey, thank god that it’s waterproof, huh?
    • lance, clutching his still-not-waterproof iphone in pure rage: :) yeah how lucky
    • the next time they’re on an friendly alien planet, lance yeets that shit out the closest window just as they’re about to leave. one of the friendly aliens thought it was an accident and brings it back to them just before they launch. keith is thankful. lance is This Close to just dying
    • he takes the battery out so it’s useless and keith has to trash it, and throws that down a random vent. pidge brings it back
  • keith also thinks alienware/gamer laptops look cool
  • lance introduces allura to the rose gold iphone and allura has actually never Shut Up about it since
  • (on that note, coran thinks the gold iphone is great but settles for his altean tech. he likes the idea of ipods and really likes earth music too!!)
    • allura: you earthlings are so slow with technology! this ‘phone’ is blocky, heavy and
    • lance: i can just take it back, then..?
    • allura: you will have to pry this shiny, pink, archaic little device from my cold dead hands. just fucking try me lance

Just a thought.

What if team Voltron winds up going to another reality (maybe including Lotor and/or Matt). And then the other dimension paladins approach to investigate our paladins’ arrival…their hearts stop.

They see Our!Keith and cry out his name, their voices almost cracking just a bit. They immediately rush to him, hugging him, near tearing up or downright crying, telling him how much they love him, how much they missed him.

It’s once one of our paladins tells them that he came with them or they notice Keith happened to stiffen up at their embrace, that they let him go…only to beg to hold him for just a little longer. And that is when our paladins learn that in this reality, Keith actually sacrificed himself before Lotor had intervened. Possibly learning that this damn near happened in their own dimension, too.

Fun idea - Stop mocking aro culture for once. I keep seeing posts joking telling people to go outside in reference to aro people trying to explain squishes and other alloromantic people are mocking the idea of queerplatonic relationships and saying it’s literally just friendship and that people are idiots.

Please, just… Stop. If you don’t understand it, that’s okay! You don’t need to, but if you don’t have the experience you can’t tell people that the way they experience things is invalid or identical to some other thing.

tl;dr: mocking squishes and queerplatonic relationships isn’t funny and I really hope some of you guys will understand that and stop.

What neurotypicals don’t understand about BPD is it can literally go the extremes. Like you understand you’re being irrational and absolutely ridiculous, but will that stop you from being irrational and ridiculous? Absolutely not. You understand it’s not healthy to be so clingy to someone and depend on them deeply for your happiness, but will that stop you from being clingy and dependent? Sorry, no again. The list goes on and on. Anyone who has to live with this disorder knows it is hell, and it strikes you at the times when you least expect it. It’s not fun at all and I really wish more NT’s understood it rather than ridiculing us and thinking we’re some kind of ‘alien’ for having such a thing.

For anyone who likes artwork.

So I don’t know how many of you are actually going to see this or read this, but please please please give my friend, @that-goddamn-owl ‘s blog a look see. His art is absolutely gorgeous and awesome. Don’t believe me? Here’s some of his work:

With that said, all I ask is that you give it a look see. Reblog it even. I know I’m sounding demanding, but I hate to see my friends artwork not get the attention I think it deserves. Owl, if your reading this, I’m sorry I’m showing some of your work, but damn it, IT NEEDS TO BE SEEN. That’s all I needed to say.

I just reblogged a post but I’m pissed now so I’m going to make my own post.
People with BPD have to CONSTANTLY question if we’re being manipulative and abusive, even in the smallest of interactions. Overshared on feeling bad? Abusive shit I should die. Wait. Wanting to die makes me abusive too, and God help me if I tell anyone.
So, sometimes, we make tumblr posts telling other people like us that they aren’t inherently abusive, and there’s always at least one asshole who reblogs or comments saying “don’t forget that people with BPD can actually be abusive”. Which is not something we’re about to forget. I spend all day in a panic because I’m probably manipulating and hurting everyone, and I really probably shouldn’t have friends because I’ll just hurt them.
WE DON’T NEED REMINDING THAT WE CAN HURT PEOPLE; WE ARE HYPER FUCKING AWARE OF IT

I’m staying right here

Sometimes it’s ugly to be autistic.

Sometimes it’s somebody who, upon experiencing the slightest discomfort, starts beating themselves until they shatter bones, lacerate their skin, break teeth, bite / rip off their fingernails / toenails, tear tendons / ligaments, tear muscles, destroy their eyeballs and get concussions (and worse).

Sometimes it’s somebody who doesn’t do extreme damage to their body, but they still cause significant injuries (cuts, bruises, blisters) that can be embarrassing or hard to explain because they look like they got in a fight. *

Sometimes it’s somebody biting, slapping, scratching, pinching, grabbing, punching, kicking or pushing (and sometimes seriously injuring) somebody else because they lack any impulse control and react instantly to their emotions. 

Sometimes it’s somebody who is very confused because their routine was broken and now they can’t figure out how the rest of their day is going to go. *

Sometimes it’s hours of screaming, shouting and crying. *

Sometimes it’s somebody not being able to tell you what’s wrong in a way you can understand. *

Sometimes it’s somebody going into a meltdown because the detergent used to wash their clothes or a scent somewhere in the environment makes their nose feel like it’s on fire. *

Sometimes it’s somebody going into a meltdown if you get the wrong toothpaste because the “mint-ness” causes extreme pain that is intolerable on top of the already barely-tolerable toothbrush moving around in their mouth.

Sometimes it’s somebody not being able to get dressed, use the toilet, bathe or eat without help because they can’t think their way to the next step in a process.

Sometimes it’s somebody who wears incontinence products because they have trouble reading their body’s bathroom signals or don’t feel them at all.

Sometimes it’s somebody who eats until they throw up unless food is portioned out to them because seeing the food is a prompt to eat it and they don’t recognize their body’s “I’m full” signals.

Sometimes it’s somebody whose texture / taste sensory defensiveness is so extreme they will only eat Specific Name Brand plain rice and they won’t touch it if it’s slightly under or overcooked.

Sometimes it’s somebody who is emaciated because they don’t feel hunger signals and forget to eat for up to a week at a time unless a caregiver is present to prompt eating.

Sometimes it’s somebody ending up in the ER because they’re severely dehydrated due to not feeling thirst signals and nobody was prompting them to drink water.

Sometimes it’s sleepless nights because the bed sheets and pajamas Feel So Wrong.

Sometimes it’s somebody whose body doesn’t listen to their brain and they occasionally or frequently do things they can’t control. *

Sometimes it’s somebody with sensory issues so extreme that there isn’t language to describe how they experience the world. 

Sometimes it’s somebody wandering away and possibly never coming home.

Sometimes it’s somebody walking into danger and not immediately perceiving it as dangerous.

Sometimes it’s somebody being talked about in their presence as if they don’t exist. *

Sometimes being autistic is ugly.

It’s never an excuse for neglect, abuse or murder.



Note: This is from the autistic perspective. Anyone may reblog this, but I ask non-autistic people to avoid hijacking this to talk about how hard it is for families / caregivers. I understand very much that it’s hard for you, but this isn’t about you.

All things with an asterisk * apply to me personally, but are intended to be read in a general sense. I deliberately wasn’t specific about verbal / nonverbal because some autistic people are nonverbal all the time and others go nonverbal during times of stress or discomfort.

in response to that thing i reblogged a few min ago: has anyone done an au where dan killed vlad instead of danny? so like danny going to look for vlad but instead runs into 24 y/o totally human him and ofc older Danny (we’re gonna call him Fenton okay.. bc he has no phantom half anymore sure it works) is like fuck you dan n tries to destroy him until like. he realizes it actually is his younger self. its rly damn awkward and uncomfortable for everyone

basically fenton and valerie are teamed up in this au and are Very wary of danny + dan trapping him here danny feels like he’s gonna have a bad time just wants to go back home except “dan destroyed our portal a few days ago so ur shit outta luck kid” “im a younger you why are you calling me kid” “…right”

also consider: older gray ghost B))

The signs deepest secrets

Aries: Fears rejection so bad to the point where they don’t want a relationship sometimes

Taurus: Super jealous of anyone that tries to take over

Gemini: Has several love affairs for the multiple personalities they have

Leo: actually really insecure and cares more than anyone thinks

Libra: They are scared to be alone and, need that one person to even be content

Scorpio: like to living the bad life. They make it complicated

Sagittarius: They love attention but get nervous fast

Capricorn: Are sort of obsessed with being melancholy

Aquarius: Has a lot more going on inside and hurts but toughs it out

We created this Tumblr because of our server on discord! It’s for trans women and transfeminine people who need help with traditionally feminine things, or really anyone that wants help with those topics! It’s also open to people who want to help, we’ve actually gotten a number of trans men who want to use their AFAB knowledge to help! Anyone that can benefit or help is totally welcome!

Edit: If you’re interested, you can go to the ask page off anon and we’ll answer privately!!

Imagine with me for a moment.

Imagine a teacher telling you there’s a big exam. They don’t tell you what day it’s on, what time it happens or what chapter in the textbook it will cover. Oh, and it’s your entire grade. You’re under immense pressure to get all A’s and this one class will ruin you if you score lower than an A.

Imagine feeling your stomach knot up because you don’t know how long you have to study, you don’t know what to study and the textbook is like 500 pages long.

Imagine crying every night as you try to power through all this information, but it’s impossible to retain it because there’s so much that you forget as much as you absorb.

Imagine crying when you wake up every morning afraid you missed the exam because nobody can tell you what time it is.

Imagine being stressed to the point of shaking and chewing your fingernails off whenever you go to class because today could be exam day and you’re nowhere near ready.

Imagine it finally being exam day. You were finally able to find out what time it is last night. You got an email at 2am saying the exam is at 7. 

Imagine being unable to sleep because you’re afraid you won’t get to class in time. 

Imagine going to school feeling exhausted and plopping into your seat in class. The exam starts…and it’s from a new edition of the textbook that everybody except you got, so all your cramming and preparation for the exam was for nothing. 

Imagine you bomb the test even though you gave it your best. But you are so angry that you weren’t allowed to adequately prepare for reasons that are entirely not your fault, but the failure is still on YOU. You walk out of the classroom crying in rage, kick every locker you see and go home to bury yourself under pillows for the rest of the day.

Imagine feeling like the only loser who failed that “really simple” exam and being reminded of it every time people talk about school.

That is what it feels like to be autistic and have my routine constantly shuffled around, have plans changed on me last minute and not getting enough info to prepare for something because the people who informed me of the change won’t give me any more details. All of a sudden I’m in the middle of huge sensory unknowns that I can’t prepare for, so the likelihood of having a very public meltdown may be extremely high.

Can you understand the utter frustration and helpless feeling? Do you understand how scary that is?

Be kind to the autistic people in your life. Don’t shuffle routines without warning. Don’t change plans at the last second without seeing if they’re okay with that or not. Try to be as informative as possible when mentioning something that’s coming up. Even if it’s something like “June 10th at 10:30am, dress for hot weather and expect it to be loud” is a lot more helpful than “it’s June 10th.”

Don’t get frustrated with an autistic person if they repeatedly ask you about something that’s coming up. It could mean they’re worried about it, are afraid you’ll forget about it or are hoping you have more than vague information to give them. 

Please, even if it’s the thirtieth time in an hour, try to answer nicely. Reassure them about their concerns if possible, let them know that you haven’t forgotten about it(or thank them for reminding you if you did) and give them information as it becomes available, or tell them that you’re working on finding out. 

Knowing that you’ll make sure it works out, that you remembered and that you are trying to find out about missing info can ease some worry. But make sure you actually DO look into it and pass along relevant info as soon as you know it. You’ll save the autistic person and yourself a lot of stress.

This whole scenario applies to autistic people who can talk and don’t need a lot of daily help as well as the nonverbal autistic people who need lots of daily help and can’t make their communications understood.

Actually, this goes especially for caregivers of nonverbal autistic people who need lots of daily help and can’t make their communications understood– it’s so easy to drag them through your day and forget that they have wants and needs too. 

If a major part of their routine is something like walking in circles around the living room while watching Star Trek reruns before dinner, tell them about it instead of dragging them out the door at a time they’re expecting to stim by walking and enjoying their favorite show.

Because what you’re doing is the equivalent of telling somebody you’re going to a silent mime show and then taking them to a noisy construction site instead. Their brain is prepared for a quiet experience, so their mentall walls aren’t up. What do you think is gonna happen?

“It’s just a bunch of crap. You don’t want to know how we feel. When people ask you to express your feelings, they don’t mean your actual feelings they mean the feelings that they want you to have because people can’t deal with dark or scary or weird. They want you to smile and say ‘Yeah, I’m fine. Everything’s great,’ because then they can just go on with their boring lives and never think about you again.”

amarits  asked:

You know I use tumblr almost exclusively on my phone but I never use the app because it’s the worst thing ever created. Mobile tumblr on a browser works just fine, minus tumblr constantly calling me a baby for not wanting their app.

honestly, the only good update to mobile i can recall was finally adding in the ability to add images to text posts. but even then, i only use the app to post pics/screenshots? i don’t know how anyone can actually browse when the app

  • consistently does weird html shit that fucks up paragraph breaks and makes raw code appear in chat posts
  • doesn’t hide readmores unless they’re in a reblog
  • unless the readmore is in an ask, in which case the text is inexplicably cut off without any actual link to indicate that there’s more to the post
  • doesn’t have a post button on the drafts page? you have to go into the edit interface? which sometimes breaks the whole post, which you had carefully drafted, because of the aforementioned html problem?
  • the total inability to tell if someone’s shitposting or if images have fucked up again
  • it literally uses more bandwidth than just looking at your dash in a mobile browser, how the fuck does that work
  • flattens the ‘tag’ and ‘search’ interfaces in such a way that if you try to check a tag on mobile, you will see every post that includes those words regardless of whether it was tagged
  • combined with the readmore problem that means people who want to, idk, vent about how much they hate cilantro can put their post behind a cut and leave it untagged and still have it show up for any mobile user that tries to check #cilantro, the only solution to which is to insert random punctuation into words and names like you’re having a stroke in order to keep randos from starting shit
  • there’s no ‘local’ drafts, so when a post fails to upload it just disappears into the fucking void instead, until it posts five times because there was no way to cancel its repeated attempts
  • that weird html thing also causes bullet points to fuck up all the time, this post is probably a travesty
  • automatically resizes every image in a text post to the width of the app, no matter how small, resulting in huge blurry weird shit
  • literally no option for pagination so if you want to backread your dash you just have to endless scroll for as long as it will let you before it fucking breaks
  • converts all tags to lowercase, including in the suggestion bar, so there’s no way of knowing if it will show up in all caps on desktop
  • no way to tag asks (i’m p sure this still requires xkit for some goddamn reason, like this isn’t basic functionality, whenever xkit breaks i cannot use this website)
  • no notifications for asks, and asks don’t get marked as read on mobile, which sometimes means getting on the computer and seeing a frankly terrifying number on the inbox icon
  • notifications on mobile just break at a certain point, so it has never been possible on mobile to just check your activity page, you have to go to your own blog and click the notes on every post that looks like someone might have said something if you want to see what’s up

i could go on but god isn’t this enough

hey so re: this garbage

link here in case anyone wants to verify, i’m not reblogging the original bc i don’t want the ppl in the notes on me for reasons that will become apparent v quickly

but i actually do recommend you go take a look at the notes, especially if you rage about ppl using the term “mogai” or chill with ppl who do, bc i want to make sure that when you do that, you know exactly who you’re aligning yourself with

and then, when you’ve done that and finished washing your hands, i advise you to go to this link as well, where an attractive and perceptive nb pointed out this exact correlation and why it exists and why ppl throwing tantrums about that word was really fucking skeevy, more than six months ago, and was not by any means the only one to do so, to a resounding silence from most of our non-nb allies broken only by the bleating of discourse blogs trying to slander us and the original creator in an effort to protect your little exorsexist jokes.

so when you all ignore this post too so you can go on making thinly-veiled “fake tumblr gender” jokes with your mates, i just want it to be clear that you’re not slick, and there’s an increasingly thin line between "you sound just like them” and “you literally are them, just with different shit meme icons”
