it's-a-plague

THIS ISN’T DONE   with an easy heart, honestly . it may seem so random but this has been quite a long time coming . truly, i’ve been wanting to leave tumblr for good in the middle of sirius black, but i chopped up all the negative vibes & mental strain on the fact that i was rping rude characters . then rping newt & thor definitely did help me feel a bit better just because of my sheer love for the characters, but my anxiety & paranoia never left . this was a very calculated move for me .

i want to come back, and i want to say that i will come back . but at this point i’m not sure of that . i LOVE thor, i love writing thor, but this website ruins me mentally & emotionally, i just can’t handle it right now . i want to focus on my art and education, i just don’t really want to rely on this website and spend all of my time on here when it drains me so much . for now i will be at my personal @ilsirius & on my skype @morwn.lynn@gmail.com . 

i want to thank SO MANY OF YOU for being so lovely and kind and welcoming to me, to my friends for being here for me, for my partners for plotting and writing with me . you have no idea how grateful i am for all of you . i also really want to apologize for anyone i may have hurt on my time here, i’m not sure of any specifics of what i did but if i have hurt anyone i am deeply sorry, and you are free to approach me and we can talk it out in depth . if my leaving hurts anyone, i’m also sorry for that . i do not intend to hurt anyone, and i wish no ill will on anyone on this website . 

i will continue to rp thor and newt and my ocs on skype if anyone would miss that ! i just can’t be on tumblr anymore ! i’m so tired of this website, it is so time consuming and toxic . it is killing me lmfao sdklfs this sounds so dramatic but whatever it’s not like it matters !!!

i love all of my followers dearly, you and thor were what was keeping me here while i was here, if it weren’t for you i wouldn’t have made it this far <3 goodbye angels ! 

imagine when voltron is formed and there’s a ship flying towards them but its lion hands are unavailable so the mouth just opens and bites the ship. lov the cronch

This video essay is about a gendered trope that has bothered me for years but didn’t have a name, so I gave it one: Born Sexy Yesterday. It’s a science fiction convention in which the mind of a naive, yet highly skilled, girl is written into the body of a mature sexualized woman. Born sexy yesterday is about an unbalanced relationship, but it’s also very much connected to masculinity. The subtext of the trope is rooted in a deep seated male insecurity around experienced women and sexuality.

Note that Born Yesterday isn’t meant literally. Born Sexy Yesterday can be written literally but it doesn’t have to be. If media uses a “fish out of water” plot to frame an adult woman as an inexperience child then it fits the trope.

If you want to discover a new - and very disturbing - trope you might not have known about but that is wildly prevalent in the way men write women in media, especially in science fiction, watch this video. Then go give the comments a read and take a look at how fragile men’s egos are.
