like ''did you just say that to me

I don’t think a lot of people realise how careful you feel like you have to be or how scared you are of coming off as predatory when you’re queer and interacting with children who aren’t your own.

Like, my little sisters wanted me to paint their nails rainbow (because they’re five and six, so of course they did), and I had to talk them into holographic glitter because I was terrified that if I sent them to their grandmother’s with rainbow nails, I’d be “pushing my sexuality” on them and it would be used as evidence against me next time she tries to say I’m not a good role model.

And before you assume I’m just being paranoid, I’m already on thin ice for letting them watch Steven Universe and letting them wear rainbow tutus that they picked out on Halloween. So. Yeah. Fun stuff.

y’all i will respect you & ur religion until you say shit like “just go to church, find jesus, it will help cure your depression” 

like thanks debra, why did i think medicine could help me i surely need to find   j e s u s 

bobafloutist  asked:

How about the thing where you have no idea how much time to put into a task? Like my boss will legitimately criticize me for rushing through things and making minor "mistakes" or being sloppy (he's a bit of a perfectionist) and then turn around and ask me why I'm wasting so much time on a minor task. Not only do I have absolutely no idea how carefully to do anything, but if the acceptable level of mistakes is 0 I will take half an hour to sign my name, just to make sure I did it right.

this right here!!! u know i always say my adhd gives me two options to do something 

1) “normal” speed but u gotta expect mistakes, less exhausting
2) slow but it will be checked thoroughly (more than once or twice), everything will be analyzed in order to avoid any mistake, will be a perfectionistic masterpiece but please don’t expect me to do anything else that day (ofc they do)

How do you think the bros would react to overhearing someone objectifying their S/O?


  • Oh no.
  • No no.
  • He did not just hear that!
  • “What did you just about ‘em?”
  • He’ll size them up and that is very easy.
  • He’ll have the person cowering and stumbling apologies out before they piss themselves.


  • Ignis Scientia is a calm man and a patient man.
  • But all of that gets thrown out of the window the second he hears objectifying words about you.
  • “Pardon me, but what did you say about them?” he’ll snap.
  • He may not `look like much, but just the amount of emotion that is radiating off of him is enough to make any man shiver, even Gladio.
  • He will demand a verbal and written apology to you.
  • And after all of that is sorted out, he will make sure you are never bothered by that person ever again.


  • He knows what he just heard.
  • And boy oh boy, he doesn’t like it one bit.
  • He won’t cause a massive scene, but he won’t hesitate to get in their face and start arguing with them.
  • “What did they ever do to you?!”
  • He’s fucking pissed, and it shows.
  • He’ll have the guy backing up from him slowly until he has nowhere left to go and will demand an apology for you.


  • He has to do a double take.
  • Did that person really just say that?
  • About you of all people?
  • Oh, they fucking did.
  • “Um, excuse me. What did you say about them?” he would growl.
  • But the problem with Prompto is that he won’t come off threatening.
  • So in come his brothers from other mothers to help him.
  • And soon, apologies started flowing like wine.

Okay, but like after your first date with Damien, he totally asks Lucien what you meant when you asked him if his father took him to see the marching band.

“Lucien, was that supposed to be a reference to something?”
“Dad, stop.”
“Lucien, please just tell me. I want to know. He also laughed when I told him I felt like we had a chemical romance. Why would he laugh? Did I say something wrong?”


I’ve had an account who made fake texts approach me and tell me that people have been saying that she took my work, she has apologised and also told me that they didn’t intend to do so. I have read the texts before they deleted them and saw why people would think that they’ve took my work but I was going to message them back but they’ve already deactivated their account so I just wanted to say here, thanks for telling me and deleting the work that people claimed that you have plagiarised. I’m sorry you’ve been sent hate asks as well because I did see them before you deactivated. To that anon that told her to go ‘die in a hole’ I hope you never say things like that again because you have no idea how hurtful words like that can be, don’t wish death upon other people please, it’s honestly not needed whatsoever. It’s always best for people to live and lead happy and healthy lives, so please spread positivity and not negativity! Side note: if anyone does notice that my work has been plagiarised then please come to me and tell me about it! I’d like to know and check it out for myself, then take further action if needed. Thanks to those who pointed it out though I appreciate you realising these things and telling the author. I honestly don’t know why people would even plagiarise my work😂 Have a good day ~ spread love, not hate 💗 ~K.

don’t think i missed the fact that they swerved around the white slave owner thing but the supergirl producers are right when they say they’re in the “drama business”. yet they’re telling me that they can’t write drama into a couple where both of them are noble and heroic. they’re implying that james isn’t flawed, so they’re either self dragging or, more likely, just fucking racist and plain stupid.

christ, they literally wanted to make kara the good girl fixing the bad boy, but you know what?? all they fucking did was make kara stoop down to the “bad boy"s level instead of raising him up bc she’s so quick to forgive him for everything and her entire fucking development was fucked.

they’re so bad at their jobs they can’t even write a misogynistic storyline successfully. they’re so bad at their jobs they can’t even write drama between two characters who may be noble and heroic, but are also flawed. between two characters where one is a caped hero and the other is a civilian (where have i heard of this kinda romantic pairing before? Hm Wow). they’re just SO FUCKING BAD AT THEIR JOBS. so what i’m saying is fire them and fix their mess.

anyone: hey I think maybe this aspect of Yandere Simulator isn’t great and I’d love if it could be replaced by *insert reasonable idea

I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in finding ways to force panties into your faces, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Weeb Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.


Bish you best believe the minute I got home I quickly put on my awesome headphones and watched 5H on Fallon.

I did set my expectations on the lowest level, coz my girls tend to be a hot mess sometimes, and yet, here I am, saying I was satisfied. I’m somewhere in between “giddy” and “shookt”. It’s a good emotion.

They all brought something gooood to the table and I am eating it all up. IMO, Lauren carried the song; she did the most she could do to her verse, I loved her part. If rich melted Belgian chocolate could sing, it will sound just like Lauren. I think her tone has improved. Her note change got me smacking my thigh as well, idk why, it was just an attractive note change. 😂 that “thank you Jimmy” is the best part of the song, it should be the chorus 😂

But that’s not to say the others aren’t as good. They did so well, nobody was breathless (although, I wish Dinah’s mic was louder – it was a waste that I didn’t hear her that much during her adlibs in Gucci’s part - but I guess, it’s so not to drown out Gucci’s verse), nobody is off-key, nobody’s struggling with their low register.

Ally’s note, Normani’s velvety voice, Dinah’s adlibs — everything’s good.

I love the harmonies, their runs, their adlibs. I love that they’re starting to play with their voices/notes now. It’s nothing out of this world but I love the subdued energy of this performance.

I think it’s their best Down performance I’ve seen so far (I haven’t seen them all, just the important ones), I loved it enough to watch it twice (and I’ll probably watch it again later) and that’s saying something coz I usually get bored with this song.

I don’t have high expectations for 5H3, but I do have extremely high hopes that they will prove me wrong.

And this performance really gives me hope.

Side note: I’m not digging Lauren’s costume, or at least, the bottom half. The upper part though is 👌🏼👌🏼

“Hey [Y/N]” Peter greeted you with a smile. You had to say you were surprised to see him here, pleasantly surprised. This was Avengers headquarters after all but then again Peter did visit every once and in while.

“Hey nice to see you Pete” you replied with a smile. You liked seeing him, you talked to him a lot ever since Tony recruited him. Peter gave you an awkward fist bump.
“What are you doing here?”.

“I’m just here to visit Mr Stark. Nothing special really… so ah are you working on anything important”.

“Not really” you admitted “but I guess that kind of a good thing because it gives me time to talk to you. Want to hang out or something, since you’re here?”.

anonymous asked:

hi i don't wanna start a fight but all 'antis' aren't bullies i know ppl take it way too far i mean it's fictional ffs but you have to realize you aren't in anyway right either? reylos also attack ppl who are minding their own damn business and expressing an opinion not even being hurtful. but go ahead pretend like your ship is great when it really is shit n as abusive as some of y'all can be. i know bc some reylo fanatics attacked/harassed me and it fucking sucked.

i just went off bc you were also somewhat part of the harassing. and you can say you don’t mean it but you still did it so huh. look who’s a bully. y'all are hypocrites too js…(2/2)

First off, how cowardly of you to come onto my blog and send me this trash anonymously. You don’t want to start a fight, but then you escalate your hostility to about a 100 and pull out every reylo insult in the book. That sure makes a lot of sense. /s

I was never apart any “harassing,” so you can stop it right there. Don’t use me as a scapegoat. Coming for me with false accusations is pretty pathetic. Where are the receipts? Unlike you, I stay in my lane. I don’t go around picking fights with ants.

If reylo shippers came and attacked you unprovoked (and you didn’t do anything taunting like crostag a hateful post as reylo), then no shit, that’s uncalled for. What were you expecting me to say? That all antis deserve to be bullied? I’ve been on the receiving end of anti harassment and I don’t wish that on anybody.

But let’s be clear—I have ZERO respect for what you “stand” for, so don’t come to me asking for my pity, especially when you simultaneously attack me and my ship in some bogus anonymous message.  And I especially don’t have much sympathy for you or your fellow antis when spreading hatred and hostility is. your. whole. damn. rhetoric. Plain and simple. This anti “cause” you associate yourself with has a loooooong track record full of bigotry and harassment of shippers, so you can take your victim playing bullshit someplace else.

Epic Mickey drabble: Ozzy didn’t dislike/hate Mickey as much as he acted like he did.

You know what always makes me sit back and think? That Ozzy went out of his way to make a replica of Mickey’s house.

And then Gus saying to Mickey this: I think he was hoping you would be forgotten someday. End up here.

That gets me thinking: Why would Ozzy go out of his way to make a replica house for Mickey? If Ozzy really ‘disliked/hated’ Mickey that much. Him going out of his way to make sure Mickey had some place to stay just doesn’t scream that Ozzy 'disliked/hated’ Mickey as much as he acted like he did.

 If he really disliked/hated Mickey as much as he acted like he did…then wouldn’t he just not have bothered with giving Mickey somewhere to stay??? That can mean only one thing—

It means deep down somewhere Ozzy actually cared enough to give Mickey somewhere to stay if/when he got forgotten by time. Meaning that no matter how much Ozzy wanted to deny it, he still cared for his little brother. 

This could also be part of the reason he acted so bitter towards Mickey, because Mickey not only took his place but the darned mouse made Ozzy actually care for him. Despite how angry he was and how resentful he was. Somehow Mickey got Ozzy to care and that just made the rabbit all the more angry about the whole situation. 

And that caused mixed emotions and feelings within the rabbit, so when Mickey got to Wasteland Ozzy started to soften up and slowly warm up to Mickey after getting to know him better. This also gave leeway to the idea of Ozzy actually accepting Mickey as his little brother and begin to let go of that resentment and all those mixed emotions. 

I want to tell you all a story

I knew a guy once, actually just a few months ago, it was because someone of my family suggested that we could actually become good friends, I did, the guy seemed to be nice, good looking and smart so everyone was excited thinking “Wow, he could be the perfect match for you” and for a few days I tried  to believe that too maybe not because I thought he was perfect but also because maybe he was the opportunity to “try myself in something serious” just as a lot of people around me like friends and family wanted to get me in so I could be “happy”.

So, at the second day talking with this “Perfect guy” he was already talking about love, saying I was his, even getting jealous of my other friends, I thought it was hilarious because 1st I would never put my friends aside just to make a jealous boyfriend happy and 2ndly because I mean “dude” I just have 2 days talking with you, calm down…

After making questions to each other he told me he was not the kind of guys who spend too much time outside, while me on the other hand I like to go on long walks if I have the chance to, I love going out (Maybe not to parties or stuff like that but I love going to parks) so the guy makes a joke and says something like “Well too bad that when you become mine I’ll lock you up, take your phone and I’ll not let you go out with anyone” So I can hear some sirens in my head telling me “Wow, there’s something weird about this guy” 

But well it was just a joke so I let it pass one time, so the days continue and I keep talking with him but there was something inside me that said “I don’t even feel like myself now, I’m trying to make this work but is it really for my own sake or I’m just trying to make everyone else happy?” 

A few weeks later I was having a great day with my cousins and I started to get messages from him and when I told him how we were playing and that I was laughing of one of my cousins when he was trying to make me lose in one of the games we were playing he says something like “Good thing you are not playing with me or I would slap you right in the face if you dare to laugh” I was like “Did I just read that? Did he really text me that?!” For that moment I wanted so much to be Azusa and him to be a f*cking Unicorn so I could stab him and rip his heart out.

So I stopped the messages and the next day he texts me as if nothing happened but I told him nothing was going to be normal again he asked me why and I said “If I see you now I ‘ll want to stab you, I hate you and I really want to cut your throat” and he again says that “It was a joke” that he “loved me” and he didn’t want things to end that way, that I was important for him and that no one ever made him feel like I did since we met.

Now just a day ago I took him out of my life, because I really think he needs help, joking about violence is nothing you would do with someone you love and it’s just not right, I think he’s sick but I kind of felt bad to just throw him away so I waited for so long to make the choice but I realized no matter how much time passed I still hate him, my whole interest had just vanished and I was always angry at him and I was kind of tired to be a b*tch with him even when he deserved that and even more.

The worst part is that a lot of people around me was saying I was being exaggerated about it, that I should give him a chance or joked that at least I should f*ck him, no, girls (and this warning goes to you guys too), never let anyone treat you that way, at least I love myself enough to never let someone cross a line like that and think I’m just going to laugh and let it pass as normal, never let anyone try to make you think violence and stuff like that is just a joke, it’s just sick and totally wrong and if someone wants violence that much then that person should find someone who wants to stick their fists in their f*cking *ss.

Never put in risk your own happiness and your mental or physical health just to make other people happy, there’s good people out there, I know that too well but there’s also wolves disguised as sheeps, so the only thing you should always ask to yourselves is “Am I really happy with this? Is this really what I want?” Be sure to love yourselves before you decide to give your heart to someone else and if you do, then make sure that person is worthy, respect the people you love the same way you want them to respect you and be happy :3

anonymous asked:

Would Levi respect his partner's sexual abstinence (like, no pre-marital sex)?

DISCLAIMER: This is my personal opinion. In no way am I stating what I say here is canon or completely accurate. if you disagree with my opinion, that’s perfectly fine! Everyone has a different interpretation, but if you are going to send me messages trying to argue points of view with me or send me hate messages; please do us both a favor and just don’t even bother.

Absolutely. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say this again. I doubt very highly that sex is a priority for Levi. If he did have a partner, and they didn’t want to sleep with him; fine. That’s their choice. He isn’t going to die from not getting his dick wet and it’s not likely that he was getting a lot of ass before having a partner, so it’s not like much would change for him in that regard. He would see it as a nonissue.  He’d just jerk it more often and go about his oh so marry way lmao.

Episode 2 Recap & Theories


Jon Snow choking TF out of LF. Just like Ned did way back in Season 1. I loved this. Jon’s face while Baelish was talking was literally like “dude don’t say it, don’t say it…he said it.” The worst part for me was LF standing in front of Ned’s tomb and saying he was “sorry when he died.” FUCK YOU LITTLEFINGER I AM STILL NOT OVER THE DEATH OF NED STARK. 

Can’t say this enough - Littlefinger will betray the Starks. (If he hasn’t already). He claims to “love” Sansa, but we all know his creepy oppressive brand of love, and Sansa keeps giving him the Coldest Shoulder. Not to mention her brother just choked him up and threatened his life. my personal theory is that Littlefinger is feeding info to Cersei (or will at some point). He likes to play all sides. He will likely use the fact that the lords in the North don’t trust Dany and won’t welcome an alliance. Remember, the North sided with Robert Baratheon against the Targaryens. They have not seen the white walkers or the Night’s King, but they do remember the Mad King.

Dany calling out Varys! I’m so glad she did this, and she doesn’t even know the whole story. Imagine if she knew how Varys had intentionally undermined her brother Rhaegar? But that’s a post for another time.

Mel admitting that she’s not that great at prophecies lol. And a shoutout to the gender neutral high Valyrian! This was a long time fan theory. Fun fact: dragons are also gender neutral.

Can I just say how much I love that Jon respects Tyrion, and Tyrion respects Jon, and then Sansa with that “he’s not like the other Lannisters” line just !!! I love this. Tyrion left Westeros with literally everyone thinking the worst of him and hating him so to have these two just totally vouch for him was so amazing, and on the other hand to hear Tyrion speak for Jon to Dany, “I like him. I trust him.” YES. If the dragon must have three heads I hope its Dany, Jon, and Tyrion tbh.

But speaking of dragons…Cersei’s dragon-killing crossbow. Prepare for tears you guys. At least one of the dragons will get the dire wolf treatment. It packs an emotional punch, will make Dany more vulnerable (right now she’s basically invincible) and is a great way to save cgi budget money.

And speaking of direwolves…Nymeria. The feels, you guys. The tears. At first, when Arya said “that’s not you,” I got super scared. Did someone warg into Nymeria? Or worse, is the dreaded Waif Theory true and she’s just realizing that this isn’t the dire wolf she thought it was? Luckily, the Inside the Episode confirmed that its just D&D’s attempt at good writing. The line was meant to be a callback to season 1 when Ned tells Arya about her future as a lady in a castle, married to some lord, and Arya says “that’s not me.” Now she wants her wolf to come home with her and live in a castle instead of in the wild with her pack, which she realizes “isn’t her.” This is also a good way to save cgi money on wolves. 

The Hot Pie reunion! Literally brought tears to my eyes. Her face when she finds out Jon is alive. That she can go home. Just. Omg. Bonus: Hot Pie mentions Brienne. Double bonus: Armor = knight. But why didn’t he mention Gendry? I kept waiting for him to bring up Gendry!

Now that she’s on her way North, I predict that Arya will meet up with the Hound & Brotherhood since they are also on their way north now. And seriously where tf is Gendry?

Show!Euron = Victarion. Jumping on deck cutting people down left and right with that badass axe? Literally taken from Victarion’s like first POV chapter. This is actually a good plan on the show’s part. Obviously they scrapped Victorian’s storyline so I like the subtle shout to his character and also it makes Euron seem less like a Regular Psycho and more like a Murderous Psycho Who Is Also A Badass Pirate. Makes sense. V good plan.

Theon’s PTSD. Heartbreakingly portrayed. Alfie Allen did a great job with this, you can see it all on his face when he’s witnessing the violence around him. I’m glad the show didn’t just make it so that Theon magically “recovered” from his time with Ramsay - you don’t just recover from trauma like that. I have seen a lot of Theon hate, calling him a coward and so on, but I don’t think that does justice to his character at all. Theon was tortured and mutilated, and suffered intense psychological abuse as well. He has severe PTSD (this is made really obvious in the books when you read his POV chapters, and you can really see how the torture has impacted his mind and the way he things). Its so much more realistic that he would be triggered by the violence he sees. 

So Theon jumps in the water when he (understandably) gets too triggered and can’t deal. Now he’s floating around. Who will rescue him? If only we knew someone who has been rowing a boat for three seasons and is due for a major comeback…

Meanwhile, back in King’s Landing, Lord Tarly comes off all self-righteous and badass hurling passive aggressive insults at Jaime (seriously, can Jaime get a break?) but we’ve seen from the trailers that Jaime will lead Tarly men (archers) into battle, so he clearly falls in line. Petition to save show!Jaime from the continued abuse of his character by D&D I just can not take it anymore. So far from book!Jaime’s arc that its basically ruined his character.

Casterly Rock. Loved the looks on all their faces like yessss this will satiate their thirst for revenge on the Lannisters. Super emotional re: Tyrion getting the Rock.  Tywin swore that Tyrion would never have Casterly Rock, but it is technically his by right (Jaime can’t be lord because he is a member of the kingsguard, the Lord Commander of the kingsguard, as a matter of fact, although the show doesn’t seem to gaf about this particular fact so ???). In the books there are large gold mines underneath the Casterly Rock, but in the show those mines now are empty so idk if that helps them at all, but it is said that Casterly Rock is immune to dragon fire so I love that it is Tyrion and his cunning that will take it. Here’s how I think it will go down: Tywin, as an insult, once put Tyrion in charge of all the sewers and drains in Casterly Rock (a plan that totally backfired because Tyrion, being Tyrion, had them in tip-top shape and they never ran so well) so Tyrion is very familiar with the sewage systems in Casterly Rock and I’m willing to bet this is how he devises a strategy to get the Unsullied in.

Speaking of the Unsullied…Grey Worm is gonna die, you guys. I hate this. I hate this. But whenever the show hypes up a romance and makes me feel things, it always ends badly. And that Grey Worm speech to Missandei fucked me up. So I expect this to end horribly. I expect to cry a lot. Foreshadowing her as his weakness. Ugh. Pain. Why???

Sam! Bless this cinnamon roll. I was in real tears when he told Jorah how he was with his father when he died. Rushing in to save him when no one else would try. I expect this procedure to work. But I expect it will have unforeseen consequences later on. I swear if Sam gets greyscale I will riot.

No ravens from Castle Black re: Bran Stark is still alive ???

anonymous asked:

Do you believe in second chances? Like if you fought your through the forces of some BBEG only for him to to get on his knees, beg for mercy, and promise to repent, would you spare him? Is there a point where you just say " No, what this person did can never be forgiven and they have absolutely no hope for redemption"? Where do you draw that line?

I believe in forgiveness and redemption with all of my heart. I would not harm one who had begged mercy of me, even my greatest foe. But forgiveness and redemption do not remove consequence. Justice without mercy is a hollow thing, bitter and poisonous, but even whole it is dangerous. To be paladin is to judge, and there are times when you alone must decide what the sentence shall be.

That is the ideal I strive for, but I am human, and there are evils that would push me to the brink if I witnessed them. I will not name them, save that there are crimes that we can commit that are worse than death. I have a title for such practitioners of evil: Hostis Humani Generis, the enemies of mankind. Once used for pirates, it is a legal term that declares a person or persons a universal threat. Within the last forty years, it has been used to prosecute torturers who committed crimes outside jurisdiction where the crimes took place.

In my mind, a paladin might be able to legally and spiritually declare one to be a true hostis humani generis, and pass sentence accordingly. Always cleanly, always with justice, mercy, and righteous intent.
