it wouldn't be enough

OKAY CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS KEEK

BECAUSE UNDER ALL THAT PUNK ROCK INSULTING AND CUSSING AND SWEARING AND YELLING AND PUSHING JUST IN GENERAL BEING MEAN TO LUKE, WHEN LUKE STARTED RANDOMLY SINGING AND INTERRUPTED MICHAEL’S CONCENTRATION, MICHAEL JUST LOOKED AT HIM AND GAVE HIM THE SOFTEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE NOT EVEN AN ANGEL COULD MAKE AND I AM NOW HAVING MUKE FEELS.

i think it’s important to recognize that women athletes should not have to compete with men to prove their worth and that women’s leagues are not less than men’s leagues in any way. i also think it’s important to recognize that men use the gender separation in sports to “prove” that women in sports are less than. So while there needs to be more women’s leagues, there’s something inherently messed up with the ideology that most sports fans have (this includes all genders because i know i used to be apart of this group) that women are separate from men not because they deserve their own stage but because they are too weak to compete with “the better athlete that is man”.

in reality mens sports have more funding, people watch them more, teams put more effort into their players because they have the resources. so you have a disadvantaged field. you can’t pretend putting a women’s team up against a mens team is going to be a fair fight. Women are starting 100 yards back from the starting line. Men get top of the line training starting in child hood while women at a professional level also need a part time job to support themselves, which takes up their training time AND shows that they don’t have the money to eat like they want either. It also shows that the leagues themselves have close to no resources.

So when people say “women aren’t fast enough” or “they’re just not talented enough” they’re blind to the bigger picture. These may be facts but they’re not based in biology they’re based in society. Women aren’t fast enough because they work in retail and get as much time in the gym as anyone else who works in retail for a living. They’re not “talented enough” because they need to take care of every other facet of their life. Men in sports don’t have to deal with this. They get catered to and trained up from when they are children. If they’re faster it’s because they train constantly. If they’re talented it’s because society believed in them. Women don’t have that treat.

Even in sports where men aren’t paid like the Australian Ice Hockey League, there’s still an advantage. They still get a big crowd support, social media support, they’re numbers are counted, they’re continuously growing, people care. This is another advantage they have over women. Not only is every part of the institution of sports stacked in their favor, but society already has the idea that they’re better. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: people who say women’s sports are boring have probably never watched a full women’s game in anything.

So the idea that not only are women less than men because of biology but also that the women who are the best in the world [serena williams (although a huge part of her story is also a race issue and i don’t want to demean that), abby wambach, ect.] are more biologically “male” beacuse of their physique is messed up. Women don’t have to be feminine to be women, that’s true, but musculature, height, sexuality, and whether or not they wear dresses or have long hair does not make them less female and less of an icon for young girls.

The build up was so dramatic

luctatio )

Why am I in this mood? Why can’t I get away from it?
Why does it a l w a y s seem to follow me around?

Somewhat ‘confined’ to her home for the past couple of 
months since TJ’s surgery, which was her choice to take
some time off to help him recover until he was ready to
move around on his own, Natalie felt like she was losing 
her sanity every single day, as well as her happiness.
Not because of Claudio, no. Not that. But the recurring
thoughts in her head had its way of pushing him and
everything and everyone else out and pulling nothing
but anxiety and the past - of all things - in.

…The million-dollar question was why? 

you’d think that if you design a t-shirt and wear it in public you’d want people to actually read what it says, but the moment i lazily wore one of my project voicebend shirts in public and a store clerk kept asking me “SO WHAT DOES YOUR SHIRT MEAN? HAHA WHAAAAAT”, i just turned into a flapping clam that couldn’t read suddenly

The other day I pointed out an odd similarity between a book I’m reading from 2009 called Once a Witch and The Iron Trial. I said it was weird that one of the main characters was named Alistair Callum, because the main character and his father in 2014′s The Iron Trial are named Callum and Alastair. I just wrote it off as a coincidence because I doubted that Cassandra Clare and Holly Black (the writers of The Iron Trial) had even read this book since it’s not well-known. But I was reading this book without the dust jacket on it and earlier, I looked at my dust jacket and Cassandra Clare is blurbed on the front cover so she HAS read this book. 

I mean

yeah… Maybe they changed one letter in Alistair/Alastair so that when you google “Alistair Callum” or “Alastair and Callum” you get two separate sets of results? Since we all know how You Know Who is a fan of changing one letter in her name to avoid certain search results.

I can’t wait till I look old enough to stop being asked what my major is. I dropped out of Art School so I wouldn’t have a major!

anonymous asked:

will you ever consider taking commissions?

Aaah, um. Maybe? I don’t really know if I could to be honest, I have a lot of difficulty justifying charging people money in exchange for drawings. NOT because I’m against artists taking commissions, I’m just not confident I can do  commissions to someone’s full satisfaction.

I had a thought that maybe if I do commissions it might be a ‘pay-what-you-want, I’m going to donate this money to an animal shelter’ sort of thing? I might actually feel better about it if I don’t actually keep the money.

I’m totally up for bartering, though! I’ll trade you a drawing for another drawing, fic, whatever.
