love the consensus

((I don’t know if this has been done, so if it has please tell me.))

So I’ve seen a lot of those ‘Humans are Space Orcs’ posts and I think those are really cool, but unnoticed they all consist of one thing: humans traveling with the aliens.

So there are a lot of ways you can do that, right? You could go all Star Trek and make it to where the humans and aliens all live together in harmony and travel space together and things like that. But I have a different idea and I think it’s pretty cool.

So humans don’t really know aliens exist. Obviously you have your conspiracy theorists and loons and the occasional 'abducted’ person, but for the most part it’s just generally accepted that aliens are fun and all, but they’re not /real/.

And then there’s this kid. He/she/they don’t really have a happy life, but they can’t really do anything about it. You can make them whatever you want, have any or of disorder or disability or just make them an angsty teen that comes from an unhappy home. They want to leave, but they’re too young, so they have to stay.

Then of course, the aliens come. But instead of crap like Independence Day (I say crap in a loving way, the movie was pretty good and I like it), the aliens just take one look at the kid, pick them up, and leave. That’s it. Nothing else. Just take the kid and go.

Of course the kid is terrified at first, but after like the first day or so they calm down because the aliens are treating them like gosh-darn royalty. They put the kid up in the nicest room on the ship, give them the best food they can muster from their rations, and provide for any kind of entertainment the kid might want. It’s like paradise, and the kid is happier than they’ve been in a while.

So the kid travels with these aliens on all sorts of cool adventures and throughout this period is when we get the 'Humans are Space Orcs’ discoveries. Like the kid will go up to random giant furry beasts and just glomp them and coo at them while the aliens are like “No that’s deadly it will kill you oh my god what is this kid doing?!?!” Or, if the kid has a uterus, come time for their period the aliens freak out because “Oh holy shmarda, the child is bleeding!! Why is the child bleeding?!” Hilarious antics and shenanigans ensue and the child is so happy with their new life that they never want to go back home.

Also included: drama when the aliens return to earth to find a human companion for the child (even though they didn’t ask for one you guys don’t have to do this really it’s fine) and the parents of the kid demand they be returned immediately. The kid doesn’t want to go back of course so the aliens have to fight for custody over the kid in court (I guess idk but something along those lines. Maybe the humans try to kill the aliens because the kid was “abducted” and that causes a lot of angst and problems.).

Idk just something that’s been floating about in my imagination for a while. I think it would be a really cool show though tbh like someone hire me.


EPIX Road to the Outdoor Classic, Episode 4 - Patrick Kane to Jonathan Toews: Cappy, stay hot.

i suppose “stay hot” is their Thing now:

edit: some people have told me that they hear patrick saying “kempny, stay hot”, not “cappy” - some others have said they hear “cappy”. (personally i hear cappy because i’m not hearing an M or N sound when he says it and he’s looking at jonny.) but y’know, this is a PSA, because i probably heard him wrong and then the whole gifset is wrong /o\

Sangwoo is in love

Because I love Killing Stalking, it’s complex, intriguing, well written, beyond the usual confines of its genre and it deserves to have some serious meta written about it.

Two things to keep in mind before reading:
1) I’m only focusing on Sangwoo, depending on how this post is received I may do a follow up on Yoonbum.

2) I will be talking from the point of view that Killing Stalking is a bl and therefore Sangwoo and Bum will become a canon ship irrelevant of its level of healthiness. This in no way to be viewed as the start of a shipping debate.

Tw: discussions of rape/sexual abuse from Bum’s uncle as well as domestic violence regarding Sangwoo’s father.

Now that’s over with let’s talk some Sangwoo!

  • 6 year old cousin: what does shipping people mean?
  • Me: shipping is the concept of a fictional couple; to "ship" a couple means to have an affinity/Liking for it in one way or another; a "shipper" or a "fangirl/boy" is somebody significantly involved with such an affinity/liking..
  • Cousin: who do you ship?
  • Me: I tend to torture myself by shipping couples that may never happen like Lena and Kara,always remember love is love as long as it's consensual and both parties are adults or kids..
  • Cousin: isn't supergirl dating that mean guy,you've always told me to never hit a girl or call her names,I'm 6 and I know that,he's older than me and I know more than him but she likes it and I don't understand
  • Me: you actually listen to me? And no you're right follow what I taught you and not the show,who would you rather see her with?
  • Cousin: I personally ship Kara with Kryptonite or myself over the jerk
  • Me: No DNA test needed we are related..

- edging.

- he will constantly praise you for being good even when you haven’t done anything to be, because he loves the look on your face and the motivation it gives you to do more

- he will ALWAYS kiss your stomach before giving you head

- when giving you head he’s either very soft or very rough, slow or fast - it depends on how both of you are feeling

- overall, he’s a great daddy

Black Magick?

I would love to hear the general consensus on this, especially from practitioners who are also POC.

Probably a year ago I heard a few practitioners say that they don’t like the term “Black Magick” because they traced the term back to the shaming of POC witches. Im already not a fan of this idea that supposedly “black = negative, white = positive” to begin with, but an alternate version I’ve heard is,

black = night, reverse, inward, feminine
white = day, straightforward, outward, masculine

Which made more sense to me, until I heard this association to the shaming of POC witches and I stopped using the term altogether.

I want to know what the most correct meaning for “Black Magick” is, because if its problematic we all need to stop using it now obviously, but I haven’t heard anything on the matter for a long time other than practitioners of things like Necromancy calling their art “Black Magick.”

Thank you to anyone who gives polite answers or discussion!

This….this is how most bumblebee fanfics go. Yang wants to make out with her kitten but is polite enough to ask if Blake wants to. Blake mostly reassures Yang that she doesn’t have to ask as she loves her, so any form of showing affection/love is consensual.

But in real life always ask for consent and if any partner says no/stop even in the middle of sex or anything. You stop. Always. Your job is to ensure your partner is comfortable and happy as it is their job to keep you comfortable and happy.

#15 in the shipper meme

15: Have you ever “shipped at first sight”?

Okay, so I don’t usually because I love to watch interactions and all the rest of it BUT I shipped Richonne at first sight.

I didn’t expect to, even though I knew Michonne was going to meet up with Team Prison in S3; I just wanted to see more of her on my screen and watch her become one of them. Yet, when she and Rick met at the fence, I was like, “Ship it!” because I am trash.

Something about this scene was so iconic to me and I remember thinking later, Wow. If they do go canon, that is going to be such a memorable meeting.

And now *wipes away a single, solitary teardrop from my face* look at them! Out here setting the standard for healthy, loving, progressive, consensual, grown-up relationships on TV *sighs*

Thank you @rae2021!

Love Potions Moodboard: Love Potions are popular in the wizarding world, it is unknown why the ministry hasn’t banned the use of love potions and it’s even more confusing why Hogwarts allows it to be part of the curriculum. Love potions range from a mostly innocent “floaty feeling” to extreme obsession with the target, the most well-known and powerful love potion is Amortentia.  Amortentia is known for its mother-of-pearl sheen and its unique smell to each consumer. Though many people get slipped love potions secretly there is a big movement on the wizarding party scene to consume love potions consensually with a lover or someone casually, this creates a mutual obsession for a short period of time and heightens physical sensations. As an important note: many witches have retaliated and have begun taking anti-amortentia potions, so they can’t unknowingly be slipped anything and there are currently petitions to have tighter restrictions on the group of potions. [Potions Aesthetic: 2/?]

In Voltron fanworks its kind of a trend for Keith to be the “aggressor” in his relationship with Shiro, the one who kisses first, confesses first, makes sexual advances first, ect, with Shiro responding rather than initiating, and while that does somewhat reflect their personalities, I think a large part of that interpretation is coming from Sheith fans being afraid to portray Shiro in a way that could be interpreted as predatory. I know I certainly worry about the content I post, I sometimes catch myself thinking “Oh what if an anti tries to use this against me”, and honestly it’s so sad that creators are having to censor loving, mutually consensual portrayals of intimacy to avoid being attacked.

So for all you Sheith content creators out there, don’t worry. Keith loves Shiro very much, and they are VERY attracted to each other and thirsty for each others affection. Any anti who attempts to interpret your creation any other way is delusional and not worth your time. Don’t be afraid to have Shiro kissing Keith just as much as Keith kisses Shiro. 

Watch on

anonymous asked:

@your response about married people who don't want kids: the purpose of marriage is to create a family. I do not want to sound condescending or rude, but I urge you to please attend a church ceremony or something to that effect. I think involvement in a religious community could help you to see the true meaning of family the way Jesus wants it to be, and hopefully help to shift your views on this topic.

I’m actually thrilled to get this message, because as someone who is 2 months away from my sociology degree who has taken sociology of the family, anthropology and history courses, I’m really the wrong person to tell this to.

The purpose of marriage historically and culturally has been changing since the concept was created; however, it often served a purpose of creating a method to distribute property or secure alliances or power. [x] As stated in this BBC article, “"You established peaceful relationships, trading relationships, mutual obligations with others by marrying them.”

Throughout history, marriage has mostly been influenced by whatever economic roles it needs to fulfill. One family scholar defines family as this:

“[The family] consists of husband, wife, and children born in their wedlock,
though other relatives may find their place close to this nuclear group; and the
group is united by moral, legal, economic, religious, and social rights and
obligations (including sexual rights and prohibitions as well as such socially
patterned feelings as love, attraction, piety, and awe). (Coser [1964] 2004:13)
But even seemingly broad definitions of the family such as this are contested
by scholars who point out that families are not always based on heterosexuality
and marriage and do not always include children, nuclear households,
romantic love, or consensual sexual relations
(Gittins 1993).”

Also from the above paper:
“Empirical evidence on the origins of marriage is scant, as it evolved crossculturally at different times and has been defined in various ways. There is considerable agreement that as an institution, marriage is not as old as


“Across cultures, the most universal feature of marriage has been gender division of labor between men and women.”


“The property-like status of women was evident in Western societies like Rome and Greece, where wives were taken solely for the purpose of bearing legitimate children and, in most cases, were treated like dependents and 8——Families: A Social Class Perspective confined to activities such as caring for children, cooking, and keeping house (Ingoldsby 2006).”

Why is this all relevant? Because marriage is a social institution and constantly evolves and changes depending on what the society’s needs are. Obviously what you consider to be marriage now isn’t what it was like in ancient Greek or Roman times where marriage was used to trade women like property, or like how it was with ancient Anglo-Saxons where you married someone to create an alliance. Even in good ol’ Jesus’s time, if you even look at the bible, there are many parts of marriage written in it that are not there anymore (no one’s going to stone any adulterers or not touch any women on their periods anymore).

I highly suggest you read the “Evolution of Families and Marriages” paper, it summarizes the history of families and marriage very efficiently, and this paper as well.

All of this applies to the current world as well; not everyone abides by your church’s rules about marriage. You can look at the Nandi people of western Kenya as a great example. from this article:

“[…]women who are older (beyond child-bearing age), never married and have no children are prime candidates to become female husbands. This is because they will want an heir to inherit their name, wealth and property. A woman in this situation will find a younger woman to marry and bear her children. She will become a female husband by giving bride-wealth and observing all the other the rituals asked of a suitor by the bride’s family. The wife may have children with any man she wishes, or a man chosen by the female husband, but the legal and social ‘father’ of the children will be the female husband. The giving and receiving of bride-wealth accords the female husband the same rights over the children as any other husband (Sacks, 1982). As the social and legal father of the children, the female husband will support the children as would any other father, regardless of who the biological father may be.”

Essentially, for families that have no male heir to marry off, a woman from the family will take the ‘role’ of a man and marry women. they are fully considered ‘male’ in their society.

And my favorite more modern-day example is that of Nepal, where one woman will often marry two brothers. This is to ensure the survival of the family if one of the husbands dies off, and also avoids the splitting up to property as there is not much farmland to go around.

This isn’t even CONSIDERING that if you want to focus on marriage as an institution in the U.S right now, there are legal privileges that come with being married such as tax benefits of having visiting rights if your spouse is in the hospital. 

So, anon. the point of this all was that yes, you sound extremely condescending, and no, I’m not going to put up with it because you’re wrong in every sense of the way. I *have* been to church ceremonies, I was raised Roman Catholic, but I have been lucky enough to have been able to access an education that has expanded my worldview. 

The history of marriage has always been changing, and to say that your religion’s rather recent rules and regulations about what they believe marriage *should* be doesn’t make it correct. I urge you to look outside your poor little bubble of misinformation and actually read some of the articles I linked, and think twice before sending asinine messages like this again.
