label it yourself

anonymous asked:

tuafw you want a diagnosis for accomodations but you don't want to label yourself bc that would playing straight into the Trap that society has set that creates an arbitrary divide between the normies and sets the Weirdos and Freaks as an Autistic Other. tuafw you realize you won't need accomodations or a diagnosis if you completely isolate yourself from society bc no society means no labeling yourself as an Other and thus No Autism 😷

Literally I was so annoyed by all the comments on your video. They all said they already knew, but for a while you would always dodge the question, and say you didnt label yourself so it was obviously hard for you to tell us. Thank you though, it must have been hard but we all love and support you! ( also, one kid called you a trans bean unironically which got on my nerves hella😂)

i read all of them believe it or not and also thank u lol ur really sweet

Beginner Witch Tips

Read. Before you even think about practicing magick, you need to study. It sounds tedious, I know, but witchcraft is not a trivial undertaking. 

Start a grimoire/Book of Shadows/Journal. You’ll need a safe place to keep all of the information you’ve gathered safe, and a grimoire (as I call mine), is essentially a notebook for that exact purpose. It doesn’t have to be fancy (though you’re welcome to make it as ostentatious as you like), – it can be a bullet journal if that’s easy for you. Within your grimoire, you should keep all gathered information, spells, failures, successes, records of work you’ve done, etc,. Anything that pertains to your craft.

Don’t put pressure on yourself to pick a path. You might see a lot of witches who class themselves as one thing or another, e.g., storm witches, kitchen witches, elemental witches, spirit/divination witches; green witches; cosmic witches, and so on.That is cool and their prerogative, but you will also see witches known as eclectic. Eclectic Witches, are simply witches who choose to practise many different types of magick and forge their own path, instead of following only one, or following a pre-established path. Basically, there is no need at all, whatsoever, to label yourself. With many of us, our paths found us in time. 

Research paths, secular witchcraft and religious witchcraft.Witchcraft alone, is a practice. However, some paths are indeed religious, such as Wicca. Make sure you know the difference before you begin actively practicing and before you decide on your path, if you do choose to do so.

Carry a little notebook on your person.You can’t always carry your grimoire with you, so I personally like to carry a tiny little notebook with me, for those moments when inspiration takes me, or if something captures my imagination or attention. You can add it to your grimoire/BoS later.

Oh, and one more thing: don’t ever stop learning and reading and recording. Witchcraft is a path of continuous learning.

Things to Research:

  • Crystals/gemstones/minerals
  • Herb and crystal correspondences, e.g., such as color and planetary.
  • Sabbats (also known as “Witches Sabbaths”) and esbats.
  • The basic tools of witchcraft.
  • Altars (if you’re so inclined).
  • Lunar phases.
  • Divination, e.g., tarot, runes, pendulums. 
  • Witchcraft and deities (if you’re so inclined).
  • Traditional witchcraft practises, such as circle casting.
  • SAFETY! What is safe to use/burn/touch/ingest. There are lots of poisonous and potentially fatal plants and ingredients out there.
  • Easy/budget magick/witchcraft.
  • The history of witchcraft, including lore, myths and tales.
  • The importance and use of the elements in magick
  • Research cultural witchcraft. Make sure that your practice does not steal from closed cultures. 

Easy Practices for New Witches:

  • Groundinggrounding is the act of centering your energy and focusing it within yourself. You can ground yourself by being out in nature and using visualising techniques that tie your energies firmly into the ground (very traditional method), or by finding a quiet place that you are content in and meditating.
  • Meditation.
  • Visualisation/visualising.
  • Sigil crafting/creation.
  • Dream interpretation.
  • Charging jewellery/crystals/objects/sigils.
  • Using glamours in makeup/cosmetics/everyday wear.
to lgbtq+ indigenous youth:

just a reminder that you are under no obligation to label yourself according to the western-centric + white-centric labels of gender and sexuality.

lgbtq+ identities existed long before colonization touched our land. You do not have to exchange one type of conformity for another to fit in with other lgbtq+ folks.

If labels like nonbinary, genderfluid, etc feel good to you, go for it!

If two-spirit feels right, that’s awesome! If not, don’t sweat it.

If you have an identity specific to your indigenous heritage, you are under no obligation to translate your complex, nuanced identity into terms that non-natives understand.

You are under no explanation to explain your identity to non-natives.

(ok for non natives to reblog!)

To anyone who is questioning their romantic/sexual orientation and/or gender

Remember: Feelings first, labels later.

And if you decide to not label yourself or your label changes? That’s okay, too. Just keep feeling.

tbh it makes me so sad how many girls dismiss their attraction to women

I’m not gonna label anyone’s sexuality for them but if you have crushes on girls then you’re probably not straight 

because believe it or not there are women who never experience any attraction to women 

it’s not some tiny little thing that everyone experiences

of course that’s not a bad thing, but no, not everyone is “a little bi” etc.

and we are all taught that relationships between women are inherently inferior to hetero relationships - it often takes years to realize that what you feel could be genuine attraction rather than just curiosity or admiration

whether or not you choose to acknowledge that in the label you choose for yourself or how you pursue relationships is up to you 

but if you consistently finding yourself having crushes on women or being attracted to women - even if you remain adamant that you love and prefer men - you may want to look into the possibility that you’re not straight

one of many reasons why “QUEER” means so much to me.

(no shit sherlock! plus you like who you like of any gender!) oh god, not even demi, TOTALLY ACE after all… shiiiiittt… panromantic ace! biromantic ace? PANro and BIro ACE! lolol wtf was i ever even thinking??? OF COURSE i’m a BI (sans ‘romantic’) & PAN (sans ‘romantic’) ACE. but grayro? quoiro? BI-PAN-GRAY-QUOIRO?? ugh, what the fuck ever. i’ll use whichever word(s) whenever it feels right to do so, but QUEER is the one word that has ALWAYS felt right. - Vesper 09/23/2016" ]
