is this where i say i can't even

I think the President has issued a challenge.  A call to action even.

He thinks there is an artistic vacuum in American cities, and I believe he’s asking those of a creative bent to fill it.

Are you a sculptor?  A muralist?  Have you an idea for a civic art piece but never had a notion of where it could live?  Do you have a favorite historical moment which doesn’t explicitly reference the cruel and systematic subjugation of an entire race that you would like to express?

In several major cities, space is being made for just such endeavours, and I believe there will only be more in the coming months and years!

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

queen-elisabitch  asked:

All due respect, but I'm curious why are all of your female characters either in a relationship or asexual/aromantic? (Kel, Sandry, etc.) Can't women be single of their own volition?

Of course they can. I didn’t force any of them into a relationship. Most of us go through a period of being single, but if our sexuality wants to be expressed in that way, we find partners down the line. Even I got married, and I thought I never would. My assistant says she may never get married, but she’s open to the possibility.

Kel certainly doesn’t know at the point where I left off writing her that she’s asexual. She just knows she’s not getting into a relationship right now, because she doesn’t feel like it. She may admire someone’s looks, but she thinks a relationship is just not practical at the moment. I’m not forcing her to do that, but that’s where she went.

To this point, Tris hasn’t chosen to be with anyone either. Women can do what they want to do. 

  • Ally: My apartment is infested with bugs and roaches and the exterminators are spraying all weekend, so I can't stay there. Is it okay if I crash on your couch?
  • Camila: No, it's not alright. Cause you're gonna stay in my room with Lauren!
  • Lauren: WHAT?
  • Ally: But there are only two beds in your room.
  • Camila: I know. I'm gonna be in Phoenix in the next two days.
  • Lauren: If you want to stay here, great. But I'm going with Camila to Pheonix.
  • Camila: No, Lauren. You can't come to the Phoenix with me. It's in Arizona.
  • Lauren: Oh, Yeah.
  • Ally: Why can't you go to Arizona?
  • Lauren: Let's just say they might be a warrant for my arrest, and in Ohio and in some other states that I can't even remember.
  • Camila: Well you just need to learn the song I made up for you. [starts singing] What are the states where Lauren can't go? Arizona, Utah and Ohio
  • Ally: Oh my!
  • Camila: There's three more states where Lauren can't be. Texas, New Hampshire and Tennessee.
  • Lauren: [singing] I'm also not welcome in Europe.

I am so tired of the meme that “what aces complain about only highlights their privilege.” because every single time, it’s something that we also fight for and complain about.

This time, someone at a UK college that asks if you’re “straight, gay, other, or decline to state” on their campus job apps complained about not being able to indicate they were ace.

And of course some exclusionists were like “meanwhile, LGBT people are scared to answer that in case it’s used against them! Why do you need to tell people about your relationship to sex in random situations! The things you people complain about just highlight your privilege!”

(Yes, they really said “you people,” like some kind of cartoon stereotype of a bigot)

I suppose that if I were in that same situation and I complained about not being able to say I was bi or trans, that would also be an example of my amazing bi/trans double privilege?

I have fought so fucking hard to be able to tell people I’m bi or trans in random situations!

When I told my dentist she needed something besides “male” and “female” on her intake forms, was I just highlighting my privilege as a visibly nonbinary person?

When I make a point of bringing up my partner, in job interviews, in a way that makes it clear I’m “LGBT”, so that I can't​ chicken out of being out at work, and can test them ahead of time to see if they’re cool about it, am I just highlighting my privilege there too?

(This is a good example of where “LGBT” fails as an inclusive term. I can’t say that mentioning my partner makes it clear I’m gay, because we’re both bi. It might make them THINK I’m gay, but it would sound even more ridiculous to say “mentioning my partner in a way that makes them think I’m gay.” And I can’t say “in a way that makes it clear I’m bi,” because I don’t think it does, and I’m not sure what that would even be. But using “LGBT” as an adjective for a single person doesn’t actually make any sense, since I’m not lesbian, gay, bi, AND transgender.)

Anyway you could argue that it’s some kind of privilege of living in a big city or a liberal state, if you wanted, I guess. But that isn’t actually the same kind of thing as having privilege given to you by society because of what/who you are. And it’s not really accurate.

What’s more accurate is that some of us can use areas where we do have privilege, like class privilege, to balance out some of the areas where we lack privilege. Like around gender or sexual orientation or being intersex.

Like, someone applying for an on-campus job, at a university that asks you about sexual orientation in the job app… They’re probably in the same position I am. They are in a SOMEWHAT accepting environmental, and have enough economic security to risk some of those jobs rejecting them for their orientation.

And that means they have enough safety - even if it’s just BARELY enough - to trade a little of that class privilege in to make their group more visible and better supported. But they can’t, because it’s invisible.

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been faced with forms where I had to write in that I was bi or trans or nonbinary, because the situation was a safe space for “LGBT people” but only really knew to ask about some of the more visible things… which then affects their data about what communities they serve, and who needs to be served… by making it so that the people they’re not thinking of don’t show up in those numbers at all.

Complaining about that is not a sign of my magical bi nonbinary trans privilege. And it’s not a sign of someone else’s imaginary “cishet” privilege as an ace person.

anonymous asked:

You think Genji/Mercy is adorable, despite how racist and homophobic the shippers are and how stupid and abusive the concept of the love of a good woman changing a broken man is, but you don't like Pharah/Mercy? Wow your taste in ships is shit. I can't take a single thing you say seriously now. But hey, I guess the straight ship is just better than the gay one now isn't it?

…..Bro…I don’t even know where to start with you other than to tell you to go outside every now and again??? Like…they’re fictional bro. Please, calm down. It’s just..ships…They like…They aren’t really important my guy. It’s cool when other people ship things you don’t. It doesn’t lessen the value of your own ship or anything lol. Like why are you being so hostile?? I don’t even fucking know you lol. Chill out. Dang. I couldn’t even answer this for the first twenty minutes cause I couldn’t take you seriously. 

 Anyways, you literally just proved my point about Pharah/Mercy shippers. I can’t tell you how many rude anons like you I’ve seen on other Gency blogs I follow. In contrast, I have never seen Genji/Mercy shippers send hate to any of the Pharah/Mercy blogs I once followed. It’s a very hateful part of the fandom and while I actually do quite like Pharah/Mercy together, I don’t like how most of those particular fans act and so I want no part in this ship. 

 And I’m not here to tell you the wonders of Genji/Mercy, my dude. Like…if you don’t like it…That’s cool bro. Just don’t send me hate cause I do. *shrugs* 

 As for abusive…I’m…not sure where you seem to be drawing that from other than like…the discourse on tumblr feeding you likes. If you think Mercy helping Genji and being nice to him is abusive then what do you think of Genji and Zenyatta’s relationship I wonder? 

 I’m also unsure where your’re getting racism from? Like…Is it cause Pharah is a WOC and like…you think cause I don’t ship them that makes it racist? Cause like listen…..Genji…I don’t know if like…maybe you haven’t noticed this? but uh..Genji is actually Japanese. Asian. Person of color…Both Pharah/Mercy and Genji/Mercy are interracial couples as it would turn out lol. 

 And trying to make me out as homophobic? *deep sigh* As a bi person, don’t come at me with this. As a bi person who ships lots and lots of LGBTQA couples, don’t come at me with this. As a bi person who writes/creates lots and lots of LGBTQA couples and characters, don’t come at me with this. 

  All in all. Bro, do you like…need a hug or something? Cause you seem pretty angry about literally nothing and I don’t know why. Like…People ship different things. It’s okay. No need to get angry, I promise. I hope whatever’s going on with you improves in the near future and you don’t feel the need to be rude to random people on the internet minding their own business anymore. 

evakerlitvet  asked:

Hi Jo!So I'm super excited for the next ep, I'm hoping that it'll fix all of the mistakes that were made in 2x07. until that, let me sneak in a random question into your ask box: do you think malec call each other nicknames/pet names?

Hi Nitsa! Same here, I’m excited and I hope my internet here is strong enough to sustain my livestream~

I mean, we all know Magnus uses pet names with like, everybody. Biscuit here, darling there, sweetheart over at the back. So Alec isn’t surprised when he’s fumbling around the kitchen and Magnus shows up, one hand combing through bed hair and another muffling a yawn and mumbles out “what’s cooking, pumpkin?” As much as Alec thinks that’s endearing, he hates that he has to suppress the idea that he has used the nickname on one too many lovers. So the next time they’re kissing in bed; hands under each other’s shirts, long legs tangled in an organised mess and Alec slides his fingers along Magnus’ ribcage just right, tearing a breathless “Alexander” out of him, Alec steels himself. 

“I love it when you call me that,” Alec pauses, a few seconds longer, betraying the casual tone of his voice. And Magnus is astute, even when he’s seconds away from dragging Alec down towards him because his lips are not where they should be, and he drags out, voice thick as honey, “Of course, my Alexander”, with a steady gaze. And Alec knows that Magnus gets it, and he finally seals Magnus’ lips with his.

-

Alec’s awkward with nicknames. Now that he’s thinking about it, he realises that the only one whom he calls with a nickname is Izzy and doesn’t everyone call her that? Well, except Magnus; and now that he’s thinking of him, he’s troubled over whether Magnus would like to have that: a pet name. Darling? Too common, Magnus practically calls everybody that. Baby? No way, he’d rather die than have to call someone that. Mags? Alec makes a face. 

“What’s with that face? Wait, don’t tell me Izzy made this,” Jace glares at the spoonful of stew he was about to put into his mouth and his eyes dart between Alec and the pot in between them. Alec’s confused for a moment but he shakes his head and puts his spoon down, to which Jace sighs in relief and shoves the spoon into his mouth. 

“Jace, what did you call your…girlfriends? I mean, did you call each other using pet names? Does it come naturally? Like, how do you suddenly go from calling someone by name to calling them by something else? What’s that something else? How-”

“Wait, wait, wait. Slow it down, bud. Are you talking about things like babe, princess or things like that?” Alec nods solemnly at the question and Jace’s confusion suddenly turns to smugness. He was about to make a jab at that but Alec shook his head and Jace dropped it out of kindness from seeing his parabatai so troubled. He merely shrugs and offers, “Don’t think too much about it; it’s gonna come out forced if you overthink it, and yes, I can totally see you overthinking right now so don’t even deny it, I know you Alec,” Alec huffs but he takes the advice to heart and tries not to wince when he has to get his boyfriend’s attention and has to settle for “Magnus”. 

And when it finally happens, he just has to mess it up, or so he thinks, when he picks up a phone call mid-mission and in his distraction, he answers with, “Hi love, what’s up,” after which there’s a silence that’s a beat too long and Alec realises that he’s fucked up because he hasn’t even said the three words and this order is totally wrong and oh god, Magnus doesn’t feel the same yet, does he? He’s this close to flinging his phone to the furthest end of the world when Magnus clears his throat and replies, voice a little unsteady, “Well, Alexander, I love you too, if that’s what you were trying to say,” and Alec is amazed by how Magnus always knows and never in his life had he wanted to be a warlock so badly just so he could portal to right where Magnus was and kiss the stars out of him.

I once read that if you’re ever faced against somebody who is about to kill you, tell them personal information about yourself.
As humans, we have the ability to dehumanized each other and forget that we each feel, or have lack of feeling.
The purpose is to remind them you are more than a vessel, but somebody who wakes up every morning… Somebody who lives.
So I ask of you, not as a murderer, but as somebody I believe is going to hurt me gravely,
remember.
I grew up in a city where everybody knew my name.
I have a birth mark on the bridge of my nose.
My parents would die for me.
I am loved.
I know you are going to destroy the entire foundation of who I am,
and even worse, I will allow you to,
but before you do,
Say my name out loud. Remember who I am.
Please, be gentle.
—  Katey Chrest

me, wibbling: they DID do shit for you, scanlan, the moment you were like “I’m outie, y’all, I have to find my daughter” they were like “shit, of course, how can we help??” and vax went with you in the sewers to try and find her, and the moment you were like “I’m going to Kymal to find my daughter” they were like “shit, of course, do you want us to come with??” and pike did. you can only ask someone “are you okay?” so many times before you know the answer is going to be “I’m fine, don’t worry about me” and all those kids are kids, not much older than your actual kid (except maybe Pike) and they LOVE you and you are TOO GOOD at lying and what happened the one time someone did saw through your bullshit?? It was Vex and she was kind and understanding and loving and she swore to never tell and she didn’t, scanlan, she never told. I’m not saying you have to be happy and hunky-dory but once you’ve leveled out and had a moment to breathe you’ll understand this and come back, right?

anonymous asked:

oh ok thanks for answering so fast :) even it's fake that's still nice for my namjin imagination lol can you tell me what was written after daddy please... i can't read it :( Oh by the way what do you think about namjin since the beginning of 2017?, do you also feel that they interact less compared to their early debut where they looked so close to me, always standing next to each other, rapmon always touching jin hand when talking etc... i'm a bit sad, do you also feel it or is it just me?

I think it says “bby sin” - which ??? I have no idea what that means.

Beginning of 2017? We’re only 3 months in so I dont think we can make a general statement and say that “ there werent much namjin moments this year”. But I feel like, with the whole Wings comeback last year, NamJin has just been everywhere and more in your face then it has ever before- 

Exhibit A - when Namjoon and Jin had no chill and were openly flirting at a fan-signing 

Exhibit B - when they gave us this christmas gift and defined the word married

Exhibit C - when they actually got married in Japan and did a whole photoshoot on it

Exhibit D - when they couldnt contain their joy at winning at the AAAs

(lol im Yoongi in the back admiring them)

Exhibit D  - when Jin had some words of encouragement (?? sure) for Namjoon and vkook were all of us

Exhibit E - when they ended all ships with this one v live

And lets not forget:

And when it comes to holding hands and standing next to each other, well…

So anon dont be sad! Namjin is here and to me, 2016 was THEIR YEAR and fingers crossed that 2017 will be too! 

Thank you,

to all of you Riverdale fans who suddenly seem to be able to acknowledge Jughead’s canon asexuality. What I need you to know, though, and I know you don’t care, only acknowledging it to defend what has happened in the last episode by explaining to me, and the rest of the asexual community that has been standing up for one of the few canon asexual characters we have to represent us, what asexuality is and how identifying as one has nothing to do with your interest in relationships, is outright rude, to say the least.

You’re right, Jughead has only been canonically referred to as asexual, nothing else. And I’m not blaming you for not being able to see this as obvious as an aromantic person, but as such, I would like to tell you that his aromanticism is as obvious as his asexuality. There are multiple examples of this in the comic, basically everything about Jughead is proof.

And I know that someone wants to comment on how that is only a recent addition, how he was ‘gay-coded’ or a ‘woman-hater’ before 2015. And that is true. The latter at least. Jughead is not a gay-coded character unless you’re talking about those denying his asexuality. He was called a woman hater because a teenage boy not being interested in women must mean that he hates them. Sure, maybe not being interested in women means he is interested in men. Only that he never showed interest in men either. Back in the 40s they just didn’t have to mention that, because being gay wasn’t seen as normal. 

Jughead Jones was always a character that stood out from the rest of the Archie gang due to his lack of interest in dating, in contrast to Archie who’s constantly torn between Veronica and Betty. 

So yes, asexuality has nothing to do with your interest in relationships. But Jughead Jones is just as aromantic as he is asexual, so next time you think about telling us to quit complaining about Riverdale’s portrayal of him, remember that unlike you, who wants to ship two fictional characters romantically, despite them having shared such a beautiful friendship for over 70 years now, the reason we complain is because we seek representation. To be heard, and seen. To get a chance at being understood and accepted. I’m not saying you can’t ship them - go ahead and do whatever you want. But don’t you dare tell me that I don’t get to complain about a character that means so much to me because I have seen him reflect me in ways that I never thought anyone else shared with me. And making me realize just how much about me is due to my sexual and romantic orientation.

It’s not about your shipping, it’s about my identity.
