Safe Spaces and Trigger warnings are counterproductive
<b>if you disagree with me, then by god, <i>DEBATE ME</i>. Lets have a discussion about it, lets bring our facts and arguments to the table and see if we cant come to some kind of agreement or consensus of some sort.</b>
Idk, this is just a summery fluffball of a Sterek getting-together drabble because I’m tired of winter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Derek fundamentally doesn’t understand people who like roller coasters.
He knows such people exist because he’s been standing in line with them for the Blazing Bombardier for half an hour now, but even when he’s looking right at them, it’s hard to believe. Seriously, why. The list of things to do on a Saturday afternoon that don’t involve screaming and trying not to hurl is literally infinite. He could be lounging around in his pjs in his dorm right now and rereading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, just for example. Or working out, or going for a drive to the beach, or watching a movie with Boyd and Erica. (Boyd and Erica are officially his favorite people right now because, unlike his sisters, they understand the basic concept that friends don’t make their friends who lose bets ride the most terrifying invention since clown costumes.)
The line moves forward, and oh god, now Derek can actually see the loading station. The seats are wicked-looking hanging harnesses painted to look like flames. He’s going to be sick before he even sits down in the thing.
i think that if i were a civilian in the mcu and, like, one of them thicc heroes rescued me, the adrenaline rush that comes with the near-death experience would make me too bold and too risky. bucky would be like, “you alright, ma’am? are you hurt?” and i’d stare him dead in the eyes and say “i’d feel better with your face between my legs”
“let me be a private servant, for you, a public servant”
nothing better happen to that baby not just because Laurel is fully intending on having a child or because Wes at least deserves that but also because Annalise won’t be able to deal with the emotional fallout of seeing three generations of a family get a tragic ending
Looking back on your past, your life has never been anything out of the ordinary. Although your parents had left you on one mysterious night, leaving you little to no explanations, you live out the rest of your years residing in a new town under the custody of your aunt. That is, until you return to your hometown to investigate the whereabouts of your parents during your senior year in high school. It was that fateful decision that led you to find a boy collapsed on your front porch one night, wounds gaping and life fading when your entire life is spun out of control. Somehow being dragged into a life of crimes in the underground business of his, you discover the twisted secrets hidden behind the world you thought you had known all along.
♈ Aries -
Aries and Gemini are considered a very compatible couple. They have
common interests and similar temperaments. Though Aries is slightly more
dominant, Gemini is more observant and adaptable to Aries’ ways. The
biggest obstacle for the pair is a lack of planning and foresight.
♉ Taurus -
Taurus and Gemini face challenges when it comes to communication and
common interests. The differences between the two come out slowly and
often simmer for long periods of time. This can lead to passive
aggression in the relationship. Taurus can be stubborn and Gemini
impatient, if not addressed this characteristic clash can cause the
demise of such a romance.
♊ Gemini - Two Gemini can foster an interesting and well balanced relationship. They are both open and communicative with one another and are equally comfortable having adventures and resting at home with each other. This relationship is filled with active conversations. Geminis tend to be impractical and this can lead to distance within the relationship. Making time for one another is imperative for long term success.
♋ Cancer -Cancer and Gemini have some fundamental characteristic differences that can make this pairing difficult to navigate. Cancer is sensitive while Gemini has a tendency to make light of heavy emotional situations. If the couple can listen to one another and become accustom to their partner’s emotional characteristics, the relationship can become well balanced.
♌ Leo - Leo and Gemini is considered a very fun and harmonious match. Both enjoy an active and adventurous lifestyle, though Leo enjoys the dramatic more than Gemini. Leo is more organized than Gemini, which can lead to a bit of tension. Both signs are flirtatious, but Leo can become jealous easily so communication is important when it comes to fidelity.
♍ Virgo -This pairing is highly dependent on compromise between Virgo and Gemini. Both are great communicators and adaptable to their partner’s needs. This makes for a solid foundation. Virgo has trouble separating work mode from relaxation mode, which can bother Gemini. If Gemini can help Virgo relax and Virgo’s work ethic can rub off on Gemini, the relationship had real potential.
♎ Libra -One of the most compatible pairings in the Zodiac. Libra and Gemini are extremely in sync and often make others jealous of their seemingly perfect relationship. Even though both are adventurous and social, they are also indecisive and not great at keeping track of finances.
♏ Scorpio - Scorpio and Gemini share an intense sexual attraction, but have very different personalities. Gemini can be very social and often flirtatious, while Scorpio enjoys the company of very few and in small doses. If Gemini is patient with Scorpio they can figure out together how to balance their very different interpersonal appetites.
♐ Sagittarius - Sagittarius and Gemini have a strong pull toward each other. Their initial attraction is further solidified by their shared love of deep philosophical conversation and their inquisitive minds. Sagittarius tends to solve problems by considering the big picture, while Gemini is more detail oriented. If they can consider one another’s perspectives it can lead to both becoming more well rounded.
♑ Capricorn - Capricorn and Gemini is not considered a particularly compatible relationship. Capricorn tends to be more organized and serious than Gemini, which can lead to Capricorn feeling like they look after Gemini like a child. Capricorn is also less sociable than Gemini. These factors can lead to serious strain on the relationship if Gemini is unwilling to adopt some of Capricorn’s maturity.
♒ Aquarius - This pairing is said to have soulmate potential. Many Aquarius and Gemini grow a strong friendship even if they decide not to pursue a romantic relationship. Gemini can be unsure of what they want in a relationship which is part of why Aquarius is such a great match. Aquarius is dynamic and will keep Gemini on their toes and constantly in awe of Aquarius’ personality range. Gemini is one of the only signs that can keep up with Aquarius’ love for lively debate. The downside of this pairing is both signs’ lack of motivation to complete menial tasks like everyday chores and maintenance.
♓ Pisces -Gemini and Pisces make for a bittersweet match. Both signs are emotional, but Pisces needs reassurance that Gemini shares their unconditional love. Gemini, on the other hand, does not need as much reassurance and may be confused by Pisces’ need for romantic gestures. Gemini’s sense of humor can also cause Pisces to feel that they are not as important as they need to be in the relationship. Gemini must be aware that their tendency to make light of emotional situations can hurt Pisces.
Unless you watch a lot of gaming videos on YouTube, you probably haven’t
heard of JonTron, the boyish comedy vlogger who’s ignited the internet
with an extended display of public racism — but you will soon.
Jon “JonTron” Jafari is a popular gaming YouTuber —
he boasts 3 million followers — who has been making content since 2010.
More recently, however, JonTron has been getting attention online for a different reason. After Iowa Rep. Steve King received backlash for a xenophobic tweet that
essentially called all nonwhite Americans “somebody else’s babies,”
JonTron jumped in with a racist tweet of his own to defend him.
JonTron’s racist tweet was one thing, but his live debate made it so much worse. Read more (3/16/17 4:09 PM)
Angie Thomas Says Her Bestselling Novel The Hate U Give Proves There’s A Market For Books With Black Characters
“Her debut novel, whose fans include The Fault in Our Stars
author John Green, has been credited with continuing conversations
around the Black Lives Matter debate with a younger audience in the wake
of high-profile police killings of black people, including 12-year-old
Tamir Rice. According to the website Killed by Police, US law enforcement has already killed more than 300 people this year.
‘We have a sustained problem in America and I’ve heard it’s happening here too,’
Thomas said. 'When officers take off that uniform they’re no longer a
'blue life’ – I can’t take my black skin off. I wanted this book to
explain why we say those three words.’”
♈ Aries -
This pairing can be challenging to navigate. It is imperative that both
signs be diligent toward the others’ needs and preferences. Aries is
more adventurous than Cancer, but Cancer is more sensitive and level
headed. Both are very strong willed, which can supersede the differences
in these signs and make the relationship stable.
♉ Taurus -
Like Taurus and Taurus, Cancer and Taurus have soulmate potential.
Cancer has a tendency to be affectionate and loyal, characteristics that
Taurus finds comfort in. Both signs have similar values; family,
stability, and culinary arts. The signs’ tendencies toward jealousy are
easily quelled in such a pairing.
♊ Gemini -
Cancer and Gemini have some fundamental characteristic
differences that can make this pairing difficult to navigate. Cancer is
sensitive while Gemini has a tendency to make light of heavy emotional
situations. If the couple can listen to one another and become accustom
to their partner’s emotional characteristics, the relationship can
become well balanced.
♋ Cancer -A double Cancer pairing is considered a soulmate level match. Cancers are emotionally intense, they both need and give affection constantly. However, not all emotions are positive and as intense as their romantic feelings are so are their feelings of insecurity and occasional doubt. Problems may arise when one partner has commitments that may take time and attention away from their other half, such as children from a previous relationship.
♌ Leo - Cancer and Leo are more compatible than most, but still face a fair amount of challenges. Cancer is good at making Leo feel admired and loved, but Leo has to go the extra mile to assure Cancer that they are valued. If cancer can communicate their needs to Leo without criticizing, Leo can rise to meet Cancer’s needs.
♍ Virgo - Virgo and Cancer are a very good match. They tend to bring out the best in one another. Virgo is patient when Cancer experiences mood swings and Cancer provides the stability and loyalty that Virgo craves. Try to avoid being too critical of one another as it can strain the relationship.
♎ Libra -Cancer can fall for Libra’s charm quickly, but it takes more than attraction to keep a Libra/Cancer relationship on track. Cancer requires a strong emotional connection in long term relationships, while Libra needs a mental connection. Both signs must find a way to nurture the aspects of the relationship that the other needs.
♏ Scorpio - Cancer and Scorpio are extremely compatible. Both are emotional, intuitive, possessive, and fiercely loyal. Both partners will feel loved in a Scorpio/Cancer pairing. Both can be possessive, but also prefer the intimacy of very few, so jealousy rarely rears its head.
♐ Sagittarius - Sagittarius and Cancer enjoy sexual compatibility, but can face complex issues. Sagittarius often seek the emotional intelligence that Cancer innately knows. Unfortunately communication between the two can be lacking, and it is often difficult for Cancer to explain these concepts to Sagittarius without causing friction. Sagittarius is innocent by nature and so they can be upset by harsh truths or may feel like Cancer is being condescending.
♑ Capricorn - Capricorn and Cancer are extremely compatible for short term flings, but long term relationships require more work. This pairing is the epitome of a love-hate relationship. Capricorn has a tendency to be emotionally distant, while Cancer needs communication and affection. Capricorns often consider other aspects of their life to be more important than their relationships, and this can be a deal breaker for Cancer.
♒ Aquarius - Aquarius and Cancer have very little in common initially. Cancer is likely to feel neglected emotionally as Aquarius is more interested in lively intellectual debates living independently than proclaiming their love constantly. Aquarius can seem cold or aloof to Cancer, but that’s just their nature. If Cancer can find a way to feel confident in their relationship.
♓ Pisces - A soulmate level match. Pisces and Cancer play off of each others’ emotions like a symphony. Cancer is likely to take the dominant role in the relationship while Pisces is happy to support Cancer’s more ambitious ventures. The danger within this pairing is the potential of social isolation. These partners are relatively content being with each other and can often fall into antisocial periods.
