I NEED YOUR HELP

I live in southern Illinois, a small town, where there isn’t many LGBT+ resources, and what we do have is dwindling away by the day.

So, to help those like me, I want to start a pride parade.

Send me ANYTHING, resources, help, I don’t care! 
Just, please, let me be the one thing I needed when I was younger, to the other lgbt+ kids around me; a voice of hope.

anonymous asked:

Do you hold the same sense of entitlement in Ireland yank, where you try to tell them who they can and can't let into their country?

Did … did I just get called a Yankee? This is hilarious! Friend, I am about as Texan as they can get, my dad’s mestizo family has been living there for GENERATIONS, so if you want to insult me, please call me a ‘Tejana.’ There you go. Better, more accurate insult for next time. 

Secondly, this ask is so badly written, I’m not actually sure what you’re trying to say? I did live in Ireland for a while, but I’m back in Scotland now. So, um. I guess while I was living there, I felt that they should … hold decent immigration standards like every other country should? Like, let in refugees and obey EU law and all that? And I still think that now, so. I didn’t have any trouble getting into Ireland, ‘cause I’m married to an EU citizen. My biggest personal beef with immigration in Ireland was that the paperwork took so long to go through. They should have better funding. 

What I THINK your poorly written, anonymous ask is ACTUALLY saying is that you take issue with how mouthy I’ve been about immigration as it applies to the UK. That’s what I’ve been harping on about. 

In which case, yes I think that as a wife of a Scot, who’s lived in Scotland for years, and has paid taxes and heavily subsidized the education system by dropping a cool thirteen thousand pounds on a degree, who has volunteered, who has completely integrated myself into the community, I am entitled to live here. 

And I am living here. 

So suuuuuuck on that. :D 

And hey, it’s true that I have been treated with kid gloves compared to most immigrants, ‘cause I’m from America, and I speak perfect English, and I’m white-looking, able-bodied, and have no kids yet. I absolutely have privilege. 

It’s bullshit. 

The UK is run by a racist, and its immigration laws are racist. I think it’s stupid that an English language test is required (where’s the Cymraeg language test, or the Gàidhlig test, amiright?), I think it’s stupid that they require the British spouse to earn a certain amount of money to get a spouse visa, and I think the discrimination against people from war-torn countries is ridiculously unethical. 

But I don’t think you really care about all that. People like you never do. So I will sum up my feelings thusly: 

Immigrants rule. 

Bigots drool. 

Immigrant love 4 lyfe. 

Immigrants run the world. 

Now I’m going to have a shower, and take my immigrant ass to bed to have raunchy sex with my Scottish husband. Oooh, I’m going to feel so ENTITLED. OOOH, IT’S GOING TO BE SO GOOD. We will make love to M.I.A.’s hit single ‘Borders’, and as I orgasm, the song will switch to The Guess Who’s ‘American Woman.’ Afterwards, I will wipe the sweat from my ass with a newspaper clipping of Theresa May’s face. The used condom will be cleaned up with a UKIP pamphlet. 

Here I go. I hope your night is as fun as mine, pal.

Life as we know it "Two single adults become caregivers to an orphaned girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident" Oh and they hate each other but have to learn to live together to take care of their new baby. And plot twist they fall for each other. Oh and one of them is a control freak and the other is like... a badass.

Yes, please do! Sounds like a lot of humor and UST!  Let us know when you write it!

I can’t stop thinking about the wisecrack carrie fisher would make about debbie reynolds dying a day after her: the joke about her family, always bringing the drama, the ‘she couldn’t stand to let me have all the attention even when I had just died. I want you all to remember that I did it first.’  

I like to imagine her in the afterlife adding material to her stand up: ‘I’m really disappointed to be here tonight, I was hoping I’d get to haunt george lucas for that metal bikini.’ ‘do you know how long the line for this place is? I flipped off nancy reagan and fidel castro on the way in. ’ ‘when I said dear lord please don’t let me live to see that orange buffoon be president I should have been a helluva lot more specific.’

Talks Machina stuff (pre-Alpha; if anyone has a subscription feel free to add on!):

  • The mics go live briefly five minutes before the episode starts, so everyone starts whispering secrets. Sam: “I’m gonna kill you first, Vax.” Liam: “Do you promise?”
  • Hanging on the side of one of the monitors: “Brian will not let me leave. Please send help.”
  • @critrolestats is run by only four people, and that never fails to amaze me.
  • As always, shout-out to @thesingingbadger for coordinating over a hundred volunteers, holy mackerel.
  • Andrew talks about how people have requested things like how often Laura and Travis have burped on-screen. Laura immediately burps off-screen. Andrew: “I’m not tracking it! I’m not tracking it!”
  • There have been close to 400 NPCs so far.
  • Re: All Work No Play, Sam, with mounting terror the longer he speaks: “By March 15th, we will record a new episode????” Liam: “Well now we have to do it!”
  • Sam and Liam were sure Kash and Zahra were dead. Laura: “But they’re so badass!” Sam thinks Matt probably rolled to decide. “He rolls for everything! He probably rolls to decide what to have for breakfast.”
  • Laura has an elaborate plan to have the flying carpet follow her around in case she falls off. Sam suggests something along the lines of a windsurfer.
  • Laura and Liam randomly drop into a drawl for a while. The y’alls are plentiful.
  • Vax doesn’t think he was being reckless. He knew it wasn’t the safe thing to do, but thought it was needed. Liam: “In the past, Vax has done plenty of dumbfuck things”, but Vax doesn’t think this was one of them. It was partly backing up Keyleth, but mostly stopping Raishan from casting the spell. Liam: “Ultimately she’s a genocidal maniac, so–” Laura: “Keyleth or Raishan?” Brian: “Wow.”
  • Laura: “We all knew we were putting our lives on the line for that,” and that didn’t change when the Raishan fight started.
  • Liam thought it was iffy—it could’ve gone either way with a couple of rolls changing—but without the benefit of hindsight, of course Vax thought it was the right call.
  • Scanlan’s death and everything leading up to it is taking a toll. Everything after Kaylie showed up has been darkened and shadowed by his new responsibilities and not wanting to repeat the mistakes of his dad, and everything’s “snowballed into a big jumble of emotions and feels.”
  • Laura, shaking Sam: “SNAP OUT OF IT, SAM, DON’T DO IT”
  • Liam: “Vax is on his way up and Scanlan’s on his way down, and they’re passing each other.”
  • Laura mentions that their characters can’t know about what’s going wrong with Scanlan because he’s so good at deception.
  • Vax was taken aback by Scanlan’s behavior, but it’s only been a few minutes in-game, so everyone’s still high on adrenaline and nobody’s had a chance to have it register yet.
  • Brian: “What do you think, Sam?” Sam: “…about the conversation with Vax?” Brian: “No, about the superbowl.” Sam: “Oh, okay. How about the… Panthers… is that a team?”
  • Liam is amazed because he thought Sam legitimately knew “10% of football”, but in reality Sam just googles enough to mess with Travis.
  • Sam finds this plot interesting because he doesn’t know what Scanlan’s going through right now personally, but he wants to figure it out. He knows Scanlan would probably be lashing out more than anything, so that’s what he’s going through.
  • Liam points out that they’re drawn to conflict and butting heads because it lets them stretch as actors; it’s done on purpose.
  • “For Vax, one of his greatest strengths is his loyalty to his sister. One of his greatest flaws is his loyalty to his sister.” Punching Percy was partly Vax being an asshole in the moment, and was at least partly outside of what Liam would’ve felt was a reasonable response. But it served the story and the character in that moment.
  • Right now, Scanlan is only thinking of the next five minutes and the consequences haven’t started sinking in yet.
  • Liam and Laura are pretty convinced Scanlan’s headed for an alignment change. Sam’s not so sure. “In the moment, I’m just the bad-decision guy, I’m not the evil-conniving-I’m-fucking-with-Jarrett guy.”
  • Vax feels like his family’s lives are in service for so many others; he’ll react more strongly to Vex’s death more once the dust has settled, but right now there’s so much responsibility on all of them.
  • Vex’s reaction to her first death was to kind of seize the day and live life to the fullest, but now her reaction is: “…shit.”
  • Laura points out that things happened so fast that there hasn’t really been time for any of them to process any of these traumatic experiences. Vex’s first death was quiet with everyone completely focused on her and reacting around her, but the second one was, in Laura’s words, “JUST BLOOD AND FIRE AND KEYLETH’S IN LAVA OH MY GOD”
  • Liam realizes that Vax was unconscious and doesn’t know that Vex died.
  • I’m just gonna mention my delight that Sam immediately and matter-of-factly says that there will be a “next campaign”.
  • Sam re: Travis’s up-for-anything gameplay style: “He’s DTF, guys.”
  • Vex and Scanlan would both try drawing something from the deck. Vax wouldn’t, unless they were all at full health in the mansion in a relatively safe situation.
  • Travis wants Grog to get the cards back from Vex.
  • Laura thought of the bathtub thing on the spot and was just hoping the conversation wouldn’t go too long. Liam: “90 seconds.” Laura: “Vex is very talented.”
  • Laura thinks Vex enjoyed finding the flying carpet more than the bath. Everyone is a little scandalized.
  • Liam is asked about the bath. Laura immediately pokes him and goes, “Yeah, did it make you uncomfortable?”
  • Liam: “I’ve been the president of the Laura Bailey fanclub since 2006. That said, just as a counterpoint, HOW DARE YOU HOW DARE YOU HOW DARE YOU”
  • Liam realized how much he actually thought of Laura as a sister when he was legitimately grossed out.
  • “It’s Schrodinger’s tub.”
  • Laura thinks Raishan’s looking for more than a cure.
  • The twins were asked what professions they would’ve gone with if they’d been accepted into Elven society. Laura immediately says Vex would’ve been some kind of ambassador because she loves being in a position to persuade people. Liam thinks Vax would’ve been a really bad soldier, because he thinks most of the way Vax wound up being was a result of being kicked around a bit, and without that impetus he wouldn’t have had much of an interest in doing anything well after having been taken away from their mother, regardless of how nice their father was in this hypothetical version of their backstory.
  • Laura, re: Sam tattling about the carpet’s origins: “Was it for honesty’s sake or just to fuck me?” Sam: “…more the latter.”
  • Sam thinks Scanlan might inspire the rest of the party differently moving forward.
  • Brian messes with everyone’s names on the outro as always but says Andrew’s name correctly. Laura: “He got the real one?” Brian: “He deserves respect!”
Harry's 'Sirius' Adventures
  • Draco: I let you live in my house
  • Draco: you get to share my BATHROOM
  • Draco: you basically own the kitchen
  • Draco: and you throw your feet up all over the place as if YOU'RE the one paying mortgage
  • Draco: So please
  • Draco: just for me
  • Draco: don't bring in every single stray dog you see on the street and claim it's because it reminds you of Sirius. I get it. I do. But this is too much, Harry.
  • Harry: *smothered in dogs* You can't do that to me!
  • Harry: See, look. Sirius the Ninth is sad now.
  • Harry: please don't kick out Sirius the Ninth

anonymous asked:

Do you have any mental illnesses? I'm getting worse and the meds aren't working and I'm beginning to think recovery just isn't for me.

i’ve got a whole bucket list of them. doctor’s note and everything. 

here’s the thing: meds are an issue a lot of people won’t understand and won’t let you work through. chemicals! someone spits, In your brain! Can you imagine! 

i can’t imagine. but i know meds save lives. i also know how hard it is to get them to fit. i also know how often they’re shown to be the cure to everything; Just Take Them And You’ll Get Better, Sweetie. they can’t be perfect because they treat symptoms, not the condition. and that’s okay. 

recovery doesn’t just look like taking your meds and going to therapy. sometimes recovery is ugly, is relapse after relapse after backslide after angry, it’s cold and it’s hard, the hardest thing you’ll ever trudge through, the most annoyingly complicated set of steps you have to learn how to dance. the problem is that half the time the choreography is already changing before you’ve even managed to start moving.

i think what you need to understand when you’re looking at your pills is that they’re not just a prayer you pop in the evening. they were the moment you said, “enough is enough” and got help for something too large to speak about. medication takes time and effort and experimentation and you looked at the burden and agreed to try it if it meant the slightest hope of success. that’s what medication says to me: that you knew there had to be another way than living with your demons.

medication is not the choice for everyone. but that doesn’t mean it kicks you out of recovery. remind yourself you already took the biggest step and keep walking. there’s a lot of options out there. cbt, dbt, group therapy. you have to stick around and it’s tiring, but the truth is that most of recovery really happens outside of therapy, outside of medication. it’s when you catch yourself saying something negative about your body and say - okay, that’s not fair, replace that thought with something positive. it’s when you make yourself go out with friends. when you apply for the job even though you don’t think you’re good enough for it. recovery is just you, wrestling with a mind that is trying to murder you. and it’s long. it’s so long.

but it’s worth it. it’s worth it because those days that feel just normal - not astounding, not manic, just normal - are worth it. because everything evens out. because you don’t take pills and wake up in three weeks blissfully happy. you just wake up and you fit into your skin a little bit better every day. and that’s amazing.

talk to your doctor and reevaluate the medication you’re on. and keep going. you’re already strong.

How DARE you Florida. FLORIDA IS WHERE THE FUCKING PULSE SHOOTINGS HAPPENED
DO THEY FUCKING REMEMBER THAT
AND DOES FLORIDA FUCKING REALIZE THAT TRUMP WANTS TO MAKE CONVERSION THERAPY LEGAL
HOW FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL TO THE MEMORIES OF ALL THOSE LGBT PEOPLE WHO DIED THAT NIGHT

I can’t stop thinking about you.”
-
“No, stop. I’m not good for you. I’ll let you fall in love with me but I won’t fall in love with you, even though I’ll try. I’ll tell you I love you and let you meet my friends. I’ll make you laugh on the bad days and I’ll be there for the good ones. I’ll do all the things a boyfriend does, including break your heart. It’s what I do so please don’t fall in love with me.”
-
“It’s too late and I don’t care. I’d rather be shattered by your love than live a life without feeling it.

Investigation Scene with Iruma

(Warning: Rated L for Lewd)

A practice warm-up in preparations for when I’ll tackle Iruma’s FTEs. I wanted to do this scene cause there was something in particular I wanted to look into and well…. it sure left me speechless. I recommend checking @manlyronpa​‘s stream at the 1:45:00 mark exactly for the dialogue and to read along. Let me know of any grammar/wording errors, please and thank you!

She is so sharp and so funny that her tweets convinced NBC to let her commentate at the Olympics!

Originally posted by mulaneysbutt

She worked to get where she is, she failed a few times before she succeeded. And she related this sentiment on SNL & told people, “You can achieve your dreams at any age.” Which may not seem like a lot, but in a world full of 20 somethings being super successful it means a lot!

Nothing but love for Leslie Jones!

I woke up to find these horrible news and….I’m still in shock, I’m literally crying right now. I’m not American but I’m frightened for the lives of all the good people who live there, people I care about, LGBT people like me, everyone who just wants to live without fear. My words probably won’t matter much but I just want to say, to all my followers and anyone who reads this, please do not despair and don’t do something you’ll regret. You all matter and please remain strong. Don’t let this crush you. I love you all, stay safe.
