its more than just a show

@ everyone saying biphobia is a subset of homophobia and cant be its own independent concept: please show me where lesbians and gay men are discriminated against for feeling attraction to more than one gender. please show me where lesbians and gay men are told they need to “pick a side” and will “settle down as gay/straight eventually”. please show me where lesbians and gay men are dumped bc their partners think being mga makes them more likely to cheat. please explain to me how lesbians and gay men are erased by the statement “you can only be gay or straight.” 

all of those things are struggles faced specifically by bi ppl. if biphobia is really a subset of homophobia, that means it is homophobia, or at least part of homophobia.

🌼 and bcos the other emoji doesnt show up on my computer tag three people you want to get to know better and state why!!

What are you attracted to in people personality-wise?

i think this is meant like Romantically?? SO romo-wise i normally tend to like ppl that are more introverted than me? even if its only by a little. i think thats just a normal way how it goes tho? like extroverts tend to seek out introverts romantically and vice versa aint that how it Goes….IDK MOVING ON for me to stay interested in someone we have to also share interests ofc and also like? be Interested in those Interests for the same reasons?

 that sounds so silly but like ive met people where we’ve shared hobbies but they went about theirs so differently compared to me that it was almost like we didnt share the hobby at all. idk if anyone else has ever experienced that. LASTLY if they put up w/ me at all then thats a good feature i approve of that. rly im mainly interested in ppl tht can be my Best Friend First n then date later SDFDFG

Tag three people you want to get to know better and state why! 

UHHH HMMM…THESE R A BIT RANDOM BUT​ @lovesnote @scryptids @funerals i dont rly have a reason Why tho other than they just seem like cool chill kiddos and i would give them my lunch money if they asked/demanded

since trans day of visibility is coming up in a few days (march 31st), i figured i’d make a list of advice for cis people commenting on/reblogging people’s posts/selfies?

  • do definitley like and reblog and tag and comment on our posts!! its what TDOV is for! show your support for the community by showing us some love
  • dont post any selfies if ur cis. today is not about u
  • if ur gonna comment about how great someone looks, great!!
  • just make sure u use the right pronouns/descriptors. most people put their pronouns on their selfies, but if they dont its easy to check their bio to see if they have them! 
  • also dont say stuff like “wow ur prettier than I am!!” bc that implies that u think cis ppl are more attractive as a default, so its insulting and patronising
  • if the post is one with pics from multiple stages throughout someones transition, pls dont say “its not fair u get to be hot in both genders!” because thats cissexist n transphobic and adheres to the “used to be a X” rhetoric and erases people with fluid genders and implies that cis ppl inherently deserve to be hotter/better 
  • go thru the tdov tags!! spread some love to all of us (not just conventionally attractive and/or passing people)
  • its not only selfies either. lots of ppl post some really cool content so dont miss out on that either

thats all i can think of rn. feel free to add on if u want

Just got back from Beauty and the Beast

and guys, all that stuff about lefou being bad representation? its wrong. throughout the movie, he gets more and more uncomfortable with what gaston is doing, and then, at the end, in the final dance member, they show him dancing with another guy. also, despite the name, hes not at all as foolish as his animated counterpart. hes shown to be more intelligent than a lot of the villagers who follow gaston around, and even switches sides in the big battle, saving the life of a beloved member of the castle servants. hes a good guy, and, honestly, sure, the representation isnt perfect, but i went into that movie expecting him to be the comic relief character bumbling after gaston, and mooning after him. he wasnt. there was definitely something unrequited there, yes, and he did do some things that were questionable, but hes not portrayed as foolish, or evil. hes one of the most developed characters among the villagers, and he even gets at least a hint of a happy ending when he dances in the final dance number. he makes up for all of his ‘evil’ actions, recognizes them as wrong, and gets his happy ending. please, dont boycott this film. its really good.

also, a bonus: the relationship between belle and the beast is actually really well developed and realistic. theyre both very well developed characters, with touching stories and realistic emotions.

tl:dr: lefou isnt portrayed as an idiot and he gets a happy ending with a random background dude, and also the romance between beast and belle is good

I just wanted to draw your attention to something I noticed while looking at 7 million gifs of this scene

This is Dean’s reaction to Cas’ “you’re my family… I love you” He’s full of pain, but is looking away because that what Dean does with his emotions.

however

This is Dean‘s reaction to “I love ALL of you.”

Just like us, Dean, has heard the distinction, and realised what that means, that Cas loves him in a manner unique to his love for the other Winchesters.

This is the face of a character who canonically just heard a confession of love. That is a “did he just?” face.

IN ADDITION

This is “you’re my family I love you” moose, with serious sad brows

This is a “why did he just say all of - OOOOOOOOhhhhh.” lightbulb moose (ill admit, its more distinctive on film than still image)

Let the record show that on episode 12.12, at 31:24, both Winchesters had canonically realised that Cas loves Dean - not as a snarky joke from an enemy, not a awkward misunderstanding of human personal space, not just friends - but real love.

It happened. They saw it. We all saw them see it.

It had better be acknowledged.

A poem Tyler wrote about Vessel and performed in Tulsa ( 2014) I think more people should know about

Summertime has come to a close,

now everybody knows.

And just like every summer time comes to an end

so does this show.


We’ve played this great city more than 

once or twice and we hope

we’ve made them dance, we’ve made them sing , 

we’ve made them proud of every note.


It’s a little sad to say

this is the last time that we’ll play

at this place, with this album 

Where Vessel ruled the day.


When the summertime did fade,

Vessel is what you’ve made

And Tulsa ruled the day, yes Tulsa ruled the day

There you go guys!

Me: I wanted to know what you think Bellamy wanted to say to Clarke at the beach in episode 6…

Bob: Oh yeah *laughs* You normally get those lines and you’re just like jesus how do I make this work! Basically I think that by saying that, he’s posing the reality… presenting the reality to her that maybe they are both gonna die so again, you know I think.. because I… you know I don’t wanna cause any trouble for the show cause I don’t know where it’s gonna go, how it’s gonna go. Storylines change all the time and I just want to keep it open… So hhhm… I just…. *giggles* Oh god. When I saw that line I was like: alright, yeah… So what was he gonna say after that? I don’t know I think it wouldn’t have been a very simple statement it would have actually have been a lot more elaborated than that. Its not easy to express your feelings about how much you care about someone and how much they’ve done for you and shaped you as a person and you know *mumbbles* She’s saved humanity like seventy times and you know; how can you possibly summarize how he feels in that moment and how much she means to him in one sentence?

Me: He’d need a whole monologue.

Bob: Yeah I guess but the shows not that long! *laughs* I’m just gonna be honest,
I’m trying to avoid the question. *laughs*

anonymous asked:

how do you feel about SU Crit blogs??

I’m kind of jaded about the SU c/rit/ical thing. So like disclaimer, if you’re a fan of the show providing legitimate criticism, that’s one thing. I respect that, like, a lot! But I’ve seen “su cr/iti/cal” blogs complain about such trivial things, down to (literally) inconsistency in Pumpkin’s tongue texture. I feel like at the beginning there was actual valid criticism, but now it’s just turned into a hotbed of negativity.

I think the problem is that some people feel like ragging on something for its flaws somehow demonstrates that you’re more objective or enlightened than those who choose to celebrate the good things about it. But how can you provide a valuable critique of something you’ve already decided you hate? In my opinion, if you find it impossible to acknowledge anything good happening in the show, you’re pretty much just as subjective as someone who is incapable of acknowledging its flaws.

The thing that I mostly don’t like is that when a fan of the show says “I don’t like su c/ri/tical’”, their immediate response is to say “foolish sheeple^tm, you special snowflakes are unable to take criticism about anything you like. these damn millennials !!!” Which is so ironic, because like, that’s just a weak response that gets tossed out by people who claim to be “critics” but are unable to handle when anyone says “hey, that’s a dumb argument and here’s why.”

I do really appreciate that they keep the criticism in their own tag rather than just the general SU one, though, so like, props. They can keep doing their thing, they aren’t hurting anyone. A lot of the time w/ ships and stuff, the actual ship tag is just filled with hate, so it’s nice that these guys don’t post their stuff in the main tag.

also–in case you’re worried this is suddenly gonna transform into a Discourse Blog^tm or something, worry not lol, we are returning to your regular programming right after this post. I just have gotten a lot of messages about this and feel like I should voice my thoughts about it \o/

You know, if Soma does die, at least Ciel will finally experience some fucking consequences for his actions. It’ll be the first time since the Jack the Ripper arc that Ciel will have to deal with people close to him dying suddenly without his consent. What with this on top of Lizzy’s unwillingness to return home and her implied knowledge about the contract, it seems like this’ll be the arc where all of Ciel’s platitudes about “standing on a pile of dead allies” will finally be put to the test.

Zelo is so comfortable around Yongguk its actually adorable. Every interview or show they’re on Zelo is usually quiet and lets everyone do the entertaining. But when he’s around Yongguk his entire exterior changes, he’s so much more talkative (for zelo) and smily and goofy. 

No one misses Yongguk more than Zelo does

So… I’m still in the middle of watching Sherlock… But now I’m also in the middle of watching Doctor Who~ xD (New series, so from 2005 ^-^)

But I finished three totally inacurate lil doodles of 9th, 10th and 11th Doctor(s?), so at least I have something to share! :D 

I’m not sure if photos are okey, since drawings are really small, so just tell me if any of them is bad and I’ll try to take better one tomorrow, thanks! :D

why did i spend time on this  a word cloud of every key word the twelfth doctor has said - from ‘the time of the doctor’ to ‘the return of doctor mysterio’ (including class because how could i not). long story short, his catchphrase is clara (the larger the word the more it was said)

long story in its entirety:

Keep reading

1. There are so many people in this world, you just need to find the right ones for you 
2. In order to get over someone, you have to want to do it. It won’t happen on its own. 
3. Love is infinite. You can make and share as much love as you wish in the world. And that is a beautiful thing. 
4. You will never stop loving someone. You will just learn how to love them differently, or learn how to love someone else more. 
5. Family is not always blood. Family is the people who would do anything for your happiness. 
6. People you met a month ago can become closer to you than people you’ve known your whole life. It’s odd, but wonderful. 
7. If people truly care about you, they will make sure to show it.
8. The world is a scary place. And it’s a horrible place at times. But the thing to remember is that everyday the sun comes up, and with it, it brings a million opportunities and chances.
9. Don’t let fear get in the way of living your life. Fear can be great motivation.
10. Life isn’t easy, but I can’t help but think that if you live it the way you want to, life will be worth it.

reminder 36582 that westallen is so important. not just cause they are a pure, healthy relationship who are soulmates in every timeline/universe etc. but because they are the MAIN interracial couple on a pretty racist network on the highest rated show. you can be pressed about it all you want and wish barry was in love with your white fave but that’ll never be the case. years from now it won’t matter why you disliked them together. all people will remember was that the main white character was in love with a black woman. and that candice patton as iris west created opportunities for other WOC (i.e flash movie). that.will always.be.important. because representation matters. and more shows ought to do the same.
