No one chose or can help being gay. He's sending people to hell based on something they can't help. That's not very good. Either it isn't a sin or he created gay people this way.

Homosexuality isn’t some special, exotic temptation that works differently. You didn’t choose to feel attracted to the same sex, but you can choose to resist those thoughts and not act on them. 

More importantly, we’re all sinful by nature. But God didn’t make us that way. The whole point of Christianity is that, yes, we are all sinners, people who have been corrupted and deserve damnation, and no matter how hard we try to be good, we will fail, and this is exactly why we needed someone else to intervene for us. I need Jesus, you need Jesus, everyone does.

Honestly all three of them helped me in very different ways. Laverne opened the door for all trans people in some degree, she was literally the first trans person to play a trans person on TV. When she began talking about Trans issues I winced thinking that maybe we’d end up with a terrible role model being panned as the spokesperson for all of us. Turns out she said all the right things. And continues to do so.

I first stumbled upon Alok while watching a series of interviews from StyleLikeU. Honestly I’ve always found the concept creepy, they take fashionable people and sit them down for questioning, which they do while taking off their clothes. I dunno. Seems creepy. But I get it. Nevertheless the interview blew my mind, and frankly they spoke words I really needed to hear.

Pamela Raintree is not someone who appears on a lot of people’s radar. But three years ago footage of her confronting a local politician surfaced on Facebook at a time when I felt particularly weak. I reached and found her to be a rolemodel on multiple fronts. Just goes to show you don’t have to be a famous celebrity to help/transform someone in need. Here’s that video.

Looking at the "Go as you please" post, I feel you'd be buried with that Egyptian box you have and then 5,000 years from now, some kid will come across that box and be imbued with the soul of an artist in her 20s who one wrote a story about a gay demon. It will be turned into a show called Oh-To-Mah and it will spawn many incarnations, some better than others as the main character uses art to save the world as well as to help the soul inside them finally finish Welcome to Hell 2.

🏳️‍🌈 Lesbian Sister Matches 👭

Hey everyone, Lesbian Sister matches are finally here! I am so beyond sorry that these are way past due. Not to make excuses by any means, (because really there is no excuse.) But life just got a bit too hectic for me with scrambling to finish school as well as making a move to a different state, and I couldn’t find the time to do them. Again, no excuse. In the future when we host an event on this blog, I will insure that I stay true to the originally agreed upon release date! ❤️
Now for the matches. There was way more applicants for the little sister position rather than the big sister position, so some little sisters had to be paired together. Don’t fret, I matched people together who I anticipate will still be able to connect, as well as help each other out with conflicts that they may be facing! If you are having issues contacting your match, or any other issues in general, please contact us at @butchesandfemmesabout and we will get it all sorted out. Thank you to all who applied, let us know if this event worked out well for you so we can do more in the future. Much love, and again, I’m so very sorry. 💖🏳️‍🌈

A conversation with @shiranuigenma got me thinking: what if Yamato has a severe pollen allergy? Kakashi brings Yamato flowers after the war and he’s released from infinite tsukuyomi because apparently people do that to cheer others up, and can’t believe the way Yamato reacts. Yamato would insist he’s fine and refuse to get rid of the flowers, but oh boy does he suffer.

Of course, Kakashi can’t help being amused by the irony of a wood release user having hayfever, although he does go to Sakura to get medicine when it becomes clear that Yamato is keeping the flowers, and will fish them out of the bin Kakashi has tried to throw them into if necessary.

The next time he gives Yamato flowers, he hands over some pills at the same time too.

i highkey want to write a western with cowboy smut. but i have no idea about a) horses b) the wild west c) US american history d) literally i have no fucking clue about the entire western genre apart from some good movies so it would be a fuckton of research work and I’m not sure if that would pay off?? 

concept: two protagonists (cowboysss - let’s call them L and N) + the evil villain: The White Mean Sheriff (who I might or might not plan on naming Dronald Tump) who in some way doesn’t obey the law but manipulates it so that he’s getting money and power; the lesbian couple that saves the protagonists lives bc L and N are dumb and dont get shit done without some professional help. One of the lesbians is a Latina and the other one is the Britishest, poshest person to ever walk on earth. Imagine the contrast! Anyway, L and N obviously save the day (after some serious communication problems/ bickering/ argueing/ flirting) and fuck in a tent. And then they’ll all live happily ever after.

Ja or nah?

From tumblr’s “Sensitive Content” help page:

“Anything that might not be suitable for some members of the Tumblr community. As an example, nudity, including in an artistic, educational, or photojournalistic context, may be considered sensitive.“

I don’t feel tumblr staff are qualified to make a distinction as to the sensitive nature of artistic, educational, or photojournalistic content - regardless of the fact that this example was obviously chosen in order to not directly point out that they don’t wanna see wide-open buttholes on tumblr. That or some new big-wig with a fat wallet within the organization thinks nudity in an educational context is inherently dangerous.

“One way you can help us—and the Tumblr community—is by flagging your sensitive posts.”

Considering that tumblr already hides posts with external links in them from searches, I don’t really see how tagging it as sensitive could be any more effective at completely hiding my work from everyone forever than simply not posting it at all. Oh, I see what you’re doing now.

“If you find yourself wanting to see any particular item that’s hidden—and you’re over 18—there’s a “View post” button that allows you to do just that. (If you do that and discover the post was incorrectly marked as sensitive, there’s a button where you can let us know that we mislabeled it.)”

I appreciate the opportunity to waste my time telling you that the stuff I already chose to see by following a person is the stuff that I still want to see - given that I’m well over 18.

“Enabling Safe Mode doesn’t block or unfollow any blogs you have chosen to follow. It just gives you greater control over which posts you see and which ones you don’t.”

Correction: It gives me some control over which of the posts that you have decided I might not want to see that I can choose to see anyway by clicking through to a link you have provided. If I don’t want there to be an option for me to not-see posts at all, you have not given me any control over that. I want to see every post. I don’t wanna miss a thing.

“If your post was incorrectly flagged, you can navigate to the post in question while logged in and click or tap the “Request review” button to send a request for review.”

Remember earlier, when you offered to let me tag my own posts? This here suggests that my doing that would only contribute to the larger efforts of some wide-spectrum algorithm, the likes of which flagged a video I posted last year of me - fully clothed in my living room - playing a song I wrote about Stewart Copeland, drummer from The Police, paying for my dental work as explicit content, despite the fact the most sensitive thing about it was that the lyrics said “fuck you, Sting, for your curt correspondence” - which was ironically, along very similar lines to what I thought when I received the notification that my video had been taken down.

Except I was being disingenuous when I admonished Sting. I have never received curt correspondence from Sting. He’s actually a swell guy.

You, tumblr, are kind of a sack of prudish trash-hammers, sometimes.

I would happily, voluntarily, flag my entire blog to be hidden from minors only.
Despite the fact that there is nothing sexually explicit about my blog or my photography.

And really, tumblr, unless I want to be hidden from the entire internet - I don’t, by the way - it’s not your place or your responsibility to protect the internet at large from seeing some boobs. I’ll concede that you might be somewhat responsible for keeping the eyes of children off the boobies they might find on your servers. That’s the extent of your purview. Stick to it. Don’t play daddy to Steve, 37, from Buffalo, who discovers a ripped off photo on WeHeartIt, and traces it back to a tumblr blog, and then can’t see it, because it’s been flagged as inappropriate for his 37-year-old eyes.

… I could go on.

dauphinedolphin  asked:

Number 5 from that prompt list and like any ship involving Keith and/or Lance from vld? Just because it works so well for either of them. Can be platonic or romantic I just need something to read at this point pls help

(I’ve never written Voltron fanfic before so please don’t judge me too hard) 

The fan was blowing cold air around the room but Lance was still boiling. He’d long since given up on trying to look over the university pamphlets, boredom and heat getting the better of him. Keith was still working his way through them though. The other boy was lying on the floor next to his bed, chewing on a pen as he read over the list of programs offered by some school in South Carolina. His black hair was pulled up off of his neck and it would flutter every time the fan’s cool breeze passed by. The tiny movement was what Lance was currently focused on. 

Well, that and the pale skin of Keith’s neck. 

But that was normal. He was only marvelling at how Keith hadn’t managed to burn yet this summer, though he was willing to bet that it was at least in part due to the fact that Keith rarely went outside before dark when it got this hot, preferring to stay inside where it was cool instead. 

“Oi, spaceman.” Lance was startled out of his thoughts by Keith’s voice. “You gonna stare at me all day or are you going to actually do what you called me over here for?” 

Lance groaned and rolled onto his back. “I can’t, it’s too hot.” 

Keith muttered something under his breath. 

“What was that?” Lance said. 

“I said that you sure are bad at handling the heat for a Cuban.” 

“It’s not just that. It’d be a whole lot easier to handle if we were doing something more interesting. This is so boring.” 

“You’re the one who invited me over here for this,” Keith said, eyebrows raised. 

“Because I figured you could just tell me what I’m supposed to do!” 

“How am I supposed to know what you’re supposed to do? It’s your life.” 

“And I have no idea what I want to do with it!” Lance said with a huff. He sat in silence for a few seconds, annoyed, before asking, “Do you wanna go get some ice cream?” 

“What?” 

“Ice cream. You and me. Get some. Now.” 

“Is this your way of avoiding the future, Lance?” 

“Yes. But I’m also hungry and want a snack.” And also maybe because your face looks so cute when you get chocolate from your favourite ice cream shop. 

Keith sighed, but Lance could see a hint of a smile at the corners of his mouth. “Fine. Let’s go get ice cream.” 

Lance let out a small cheer before grabbing his wallet and heading out the door, Keith just behind him. 

I don’t know what I want to be in five years, ten years, twenty years, Lance thought later as they’re sitting on a park bench and eating their cones, Keith’s hands sticky from the rapidly melting ice cream. But if I still get to eat ice cream in the summer with you, be with you like this every day, I think I’ll be doing alright.

when u look into other show's tags and su critical is still there and u just want to know when ppl will drop making the same dumb irrelevant arguments and let u enjoy ur favorite show in peace

:0 other shows tags? Like okko and voltron? That’s strange, why would they tag their stuff in other show tags? Tbh the best way to get them gone is to download a blacklist app for your computer and to block some of them by hand. Doesn’t really help much on mobile though….

Part 1- Two newlyweds fall to the Underground, but one of them is going to die due to the fall (the one is still alive is SO). The monsters could take groom’s soul since he’s dead now, but SO is not very sure and develop depression. SO become someway friend with the skeletons and ask to them if they can find a place for their groom’s grave.

(I couldn’t decide if s7o falls in love with them, so it’s up to the reader :3c )

UT Sans: He will hold himself back at first, for a pretty long time. He knows how it is to lose someone, and he knows that the last thing you probably want, is some randome skeleton hitting on you. He does hang around you pretty often, trying to help you out in any way possible. The moment you seem to brigthen up again, he will start getting sligthly flirty with you. Not much, just small steps. Will you fall for his sweet, kind of awkward style of flirting?

UF Sans: He…isn’t really tactfull. Not at all. He does help you out somehow, but he also hits on you the moment he falls for you. Which is pretty fast. He will flirt from all sides. People die in the Underground all the time, and their families and friend move on afterwards, so why wouldn’t you. Please tell him if he is to forcefull or if he should give you some time. He actually will listen to you. But the moment you let him flirt again, he will. Will you fall for his really terribly punny flirting?

UF Papyrus: He will be a bit more tactfull then his brother, but he will start hitting on you pretty fast. But in a way more gracfull way. It will be a very classy way of flirting, and he will be a real gentleman, helping you out whenever you need him. He honestly want’s to help you, he doen’t do it only to make you fall for him. Well…ok partlly for that reason. But mostly because he want’s to help you. Will you fall for his charmant flirting?

US Sans: He will help you out in every way he can. He is just a good guy, and want’s you to be happy again. But he starts falling for you slowly, and he just….“REALLY LIKE YOU OK?!?” He will sloppely hit on you, looking up pick-up lines on his phones rigth before talking to you. It’s actually really cute and to be honest, it’s really hard to identifie it as real flirting and not as just another one of his usual antics. But he will but a lot of effort into everything, until you see what he feels for you. Will you fall for his sloopy flirting?

US Papyrus: Ohhh…..he is in such a conflict. He likes you, and want’s to help you. But he also want’s to help himself. Meaning hitting on you. He is to lazy for such conflicts, why does this has to happento him ahhh! He will subtly flirt with you after you seem to be more cheerfull, cranking up the flirting the more you seem to get back to beeing happy. Will you fall for his carefull flirting?

SF Papyrus: He…won#t really do much at first. He will help you out a bit, from timeto time. But not really try to hit on you. Why bother if it’s just a feeling. Feelings usually don’t stay long with him. But the crush is pretty persisstant, and he gets a bit of hope that maybe…he is actually in love with you? He will clumsily flirt with you, he has barely any experience. His mellow voice makes even the worst pick up lines, weirdly gracfull. Will you fall for his weirdly good but also bad flirting?

I feel so bad for Mona! girl seriously needs help & I don't mean this in a mocking way, she's done some horrible things but she's been through so much emotional damage by Ali at such a young age girl needs to get the hell out of Rosewood and start her life. She's incredibly smart, beautiful and I truly do believe she cares about her friends and would do anything for them! I almost kinda feel like she's gone so far that death is the only escape for her, so maybe Marlene will Kill her off

I agree with you on her needing help. I think she needs to go into therapy and get treatment and properly have the time to heal. Seeing Mona like that, I not only felt bad for her but I was more angry at the girls for not including her than I ever have before, especially with Hanna. It broke me a little when Mona said to Hanna, you needed me you don’t know what that felt like. She is so vulnerable and just wants to be included, she’ll go great lengths to prove her loyalty yet the liars can’t find it in them to forgive her!?! Forgive her even if it’s out of mercy!! Give her a chance to earn your trust back!! It’s been more than 5 years and Charlotte did WAY worse things than Mona ever did.
And I strongly disagree with death being her only escape. I don’t think anyone should have that mentality, it’s dangerous thinking. Everyone’s life matters and people should try remember that. I hope Mona doesn’t die because of this. Probably out of every character, I care the most about her getting her happy ending and I hope she either gets accepted into the group or leaves rosewood and finds better friends.

That feeling when your work isn’t appreciated because your not on the most famous site around.

Because apparently you HAVE to be on the most famous site around if you want to at least be recognized.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking for fame or anything. Just a little recognition that I have made tutorials and all that to help people.

Are people so lazy that they can’t search for things? Better yet: those that know all the hard work I’ve put into these documents, don’t even refer them?

What? Is it personal? Did I offend you in some way?You don’t like me? Is that it?

@jayalaw Some ways to keep Muslims safe:

1. If you see a Muslim being harassed, SPEAK UP. Maybe you’re scared to, but imagine how a Muslim feels in that situation. Maybe if we look lost or frightened, offer your assistance.  

2. Educate yourself and people you know, especially people with reservations about Islam, about what Islam is really like and about.  

3. Going along with 2, if you hear someone talking poorly about Muslims, take the time to correct and educate them.  

4. If you see a Muslimah at night, and you are able to, offer to help her to her destination. She may not trust you, but it may be a huge relief to her to not be alone (it would be for me, at least).


Anyone can feel free to add or correct me!

My first Marvel ficlet! Good times! Steve and Bucky having sex for the first time and I tried to write it as if you’re looking inside their heads, reading what their thinking in the moment. 

Writing how something feels, tastes and smells isn’t easy and I think it was @niakantorka who guided me along the way and made it a better story. 

That’s what also good about fanfiction, you get to meet amazing and brilliant people because of it and they are kind enough to help you out, to give you advice, to freak out with you. And it’s not just Nia who fits this list but also @midgardiannerd @loveinthemindpalace @tisfan @the-pen-pot @everyworldneedslove @merindab @ghislainem70  @mssmithlove1 @prettysherlocksoldier and a lot of other people. 

Some of these people have become friends and I don’t know what I would do without them really. They’ve helped me so much, guided me not only in writing but also in life and they are precious to me. I’m not so good with saying thank you or showing affection but this is me trying. 

Thank you all so much.

anonymous asked:

What do you do if you see police brutality? Like I know stand back and film it if you can but then what? What do you do with the film? Is there anything else you can do?

Alright I’m going to answer this for people who document police brutality against themselves and what someone who observes this violence can do. 

1. DO NOT start telling the officer(s) what you are going to do to them. If you start telling them that you know your rights have been violated and you’re going to sue, they aren’t going to cower in fear. Instead, they’re more likely going to arrest you as a means to cover the violations and work to cover up what they did/build their case to WHY they needed to use violence against you. If you were injured and need medical attention tell them “I am in need of medical assistance,” but don’t mention you are recording and documenting with plans to bring this abuse to light. 

2. To people who are victims of police violence and those who witness it: DOCUMENT EVERYTHING. When cops are exposed for their misconduct one of their defenses will be that the victims cannot clearly remember the details of the event and therefore the narrative is untrustworthy. If you are the victim, try to remember exactly what happened and document it ASAP. Try to remember important details as much as possible and write it down before you forget everything. Try to answer the place where the abuse happened, who witnessed the abuse, what did the cop(s) do, what did the cop(s) say, and try to timeline the events. Even if you don’t know the names of people who might have witnessed it, try to write down any detailed descriptions about the person.  

If you are a bystander try to film and/or document the incident. Again, don’t try to draw attention to the fact you are filming because cops will go into cover up mode. Also make sure to install and app and set up your phone so that the footage is automatically uploaded to your cloud. This is so you for sure have the footage and if any cop does try to stop you or unlawfully confiscates your phone/deletes your video it’s still there. And try to make sure you get the cop’s name and number. 

Tips for recording the police:

  • Keep calm but prepare yourself if you are confronted by a police officer. 
    If a police officer asks if or why you are recording you have the right to remain silent. The police might tell you that you are “interfering” with the scene, they might demand you move back, they might try to lower your camera down or block it. Remember that you ARE allowed to record police officers and as long as you are not being detained you can walk away.

  • As long as you, the recorder, are not suspected of a crime you do not have to show ID or give them any information. They might try to get your device handed to them or get you to show ID but you can ask “What crime am I suspected of,” and “Am I being detained.” If they say “no,” then you don’t have to give over any of this. 

  • If you have a smartphone, consider downloading an app that will stream and store the recordings offsite. For both Android and iOS you can use apps like Bambuser, Fi-Vo Film, Justin.TV, Ustream, and Vimeo. These live streaming apps will capture both audio and video and (as long as you’re able to get an Internet signal) push the content offsite. If you are in a location with no Internet access, many apps will save the streaming data to your phone, and upload once the device has signal.Here’s some other apps that might come in handy in this situation.

  • Understand the laws in your state when it comes to recording an officer. It’s legal in every state to film the police, they might try to tell you it’s not but it is. However, there are some state with restrictions related to the recording of audio. Some states require two-party consent, and some states aren’t explicitly clear on this so if you are in one of these states or the legislation isn’t clear in your state inform the other parties present that you are recording. 

3. Now what do you do with this documentation? Collect yourself, calm down and then organize your case. When you’re still in a state of shock you might miss crucial information or sound confusing. Use all your documents and notes and thoughts to organize a refined summary of events. If you are taking this to a lawyer they want to see that you can sell this case. By the time you give these notes to a lawyer, your information should include a chronological story or what happened, what you saw, and any potential witnesses. Answer those who, what, when, where, why questions. 

Now, don’t just go to any lawyer. They are already hesitant to pick up cases regarding police violence so be prepared for some rejection. Also, try not to find a lawyer that works with cops or does cases for them - find ones in your state that specialize in handling police misconduct. This will require some questions and research. Here’s a small list of some to help you out, but there are many more out there. Even if you weren’t arrested by the police but experienced abuse, it’s recommended that you report the cop(s). 

4. Another option is to file police complaints. Internal police divisions will RARELY find that their officers did anything wrong but there are other ways you can file complaints. After criminal charges and civil actions have been resolved you can start filing police misconduct reports, if you weren’t charged of a crime and you’re not suing then you can file ASAP. Your area will usually have a citizen review board, an office within your local police department that accepts them, or you can find what your options are by Googling “police complaint [name of town/city].“ 

Look at what the various options are and send the complaint to all of the ones you find within your area. Make sure to see what you have to do when filing a complaint, you might need to fill out certain forms or send over the information you have. Pay attention to what’s needed so your complaint isn’t outright rejected. Note, some areas might require you obtain some forms through the police department. Avoid discussing your case and who is involved at all costs, they might try to convince you that your case has no merit, they might intimidate you, and they might warn the officers involved. 

5. You probably won’t get a quick response from the police department or civilian monitoring agency but it DOES create an official record of the incident and it could become relevant in future cases against the same officer. You can also send the complaints and documentation to your local ACLU and other civil rights groups in your area. Some might even deal exclusively with police abuse.

6. Go public. Note, if you have an attorney, this might not be recommended so talk to them about it but if you’ve filed your complaints or don’t want to do that you can just bring the incident to light. There are websites that take your stories, photos, videos, etc. like Cop Block. Cop Block also has local organizations and they might have websites that direct you how to file complaints specifically in your area. (Here’s the list)
