know your stuff question

can people like

stop trying to give advice on something they dont have any authority on

like i follow a bunch of people who try to be pretty intersectional, and that means they get a lot of questions on topics they dont have experience with or identities that they dont have, but they still try and give an authoritative answer and like

its ok to say “i dont know, but let me direct you to someone who knows better”

if youre cis, dont answer questions about trans stuff. boost trans peoples voices or direct the asker to a trans person

if youre allistic, same goes for questions about autistic stuff. same goes for literally any marginalized identity. if you dont belong to that identity, you need to direct people to someone who does. because youre going to mess up and give misinformation otherwise

and no, being related to/married to/best friends with/etc someone of that identity does not qualify you. honestly, those people tend to be even harder to correct on their misinformation, because they think they know better. but they dont

im feeling so romantically frustrated aaa

You want it, you got it!! (Bonus dad-aloha-shirt-Bombus because this took so long!)

Thank you for requesting this! I’ve been going on the biggest nostalgia trip of my life doing this piece. 

the fandom seems to be of the consensus that dathomirian zabrak are essentially just big cats.

with this in mind, i feel like there are some important things we need to consider:

  • is their prey drive high enough that they’ll chase laser pointer dots?
  • do they have an ‘if i fits, i sits’ attitude towards boxes, baskets, etc.?
  • are they at their most affectionate and cuddly in the morning after waking up?
  • do they express their love for those close to them by gifting them the mutilated carcasses of things they’ve hunted?
  • do they blep?
avengers/mcu questions i would rather seen asked...

The incredibly frustrating thing I’ve seen about interviews these days is that these media people just don’t do their fucking homework.  Did you guys just…. I don’t know, sleep or skip that class in college?

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I dread interviews as a writer.  But as my own boss taught me, the first rule of interviews is that you don’t ask questions that you can easily look up and verify and you ask questions when you want something clarified, explained, possibly revealed and elaborated. 

So rather than inane shipping questions and shit like “how did you fit into your catsuit?” I would rather have seen the following:


a.  Chris Evans - I read an article that you actually like to draw and that you entertained ambitions of getting into Pixar/Disney one day, before turning to acting instead.  So we’re curious, are you the person who did the Captain Monkey drawings we saw in the first Cap movie?  Were you the one who actually did the other drawings whenever we see Steve Rogers drawing?

b.  Scarlett Johansson - We really loved the fact that Widow and Cap were portrayed as good friends, rather as love interests in The Winter Soldier.  Is it possible for you to give us any headcanons/backstory that you and Chris must’ve come up with to portray that on screen?  Can you share that with us (if we’re not spoiling anything) ?   

The fans are really exited over the possibility of a Black Widow movie.  If you could get that opportunity, would you want this as a prequel or more of a “further adventures” of the character following the Avengers/other MCU films? 

c.  Jeremy Renner -  We totally understand that you can’t really say what happened in Budapest with the Black Widow.  But do you have a personal backstory that you can tell us instead? 

My contribution for Destiel day! I really hope you guys like it! 


“What would it be like if humans never existed?”

They were sitting on a park bench, sunlight streaming through the green leaves, when Dean suddenly spoke. Cas blinked, startled by the question. “What?”

ate-ery  asked:

how do you deal with fellow med students who try to make you look bad in front of your attending for their own benefit?

Those people are called gunners and they will get theirs. Attendings know gunners when they see them. They know what being thrown under the bus by a fellow student looks like. Most attendings look down on gunning and won’t hold the other student’s attempt at superiority against you. 

Shake it off friend. Know your stuff and speak up when you know an answer. Be hard working and do what’s right when you think nobody is watching. Attendings are paying attention even when you don’t think they are. Write thorough, thought out progress notes for them to read. Read up on your patients. Have thoughtful questions for them. Show them that you know your stuff. 

I’m so, so sorry i haven’t been on. I know i should have been answering your questions and stuff but i haven’t been able to get myself to do so. Everything is spiriling downwards, out of control. I’m sorry i’m shit.
