minor orders

OK so…we have to talk about the bras and the broadway musicals. Now, I’ve had a long day so this probably won’t be very coherent or organized but here goes: I ain’t freaking out thinking that Sonny has a girlfriend. And, my peeps, lemme tell you why!

Alright, first of all: if Sonny did have a girlfriend the show woulda just came out and said so. Maybe not the first time when the bras showed up, but at some point. I mean, shows-including this one-ain’t exactly adverse to shoving heteros down our throat at every available opportunity.

Secondly: how many times, in fiction and in real life, have people used “a friend” as a stand-in for themselves because they were too embarrassed to admit it was them? “Oh, asking for a friend!” Yeah, right.

Thirdly: this doesn’t read to me as a lead-in to Rollisi at all. At all. Cause

     A)if Rollins was the “friend” the show would’ve let us in on this somehow. Rollins would’ve pulled him aside and said how he needs to be more “discreet” or something like that

     B)if this was meant to make Rollins jealous in order to show us that she wanted him? That Rollisi is canon at least on her side? Then why was Fin the one to bring that back up the second time. Why didn’t the show have her casually mention it to try and get more info or bitterly mention it so that he gets clued into the fact that she wants him?

But this was brought up in the episode twice and, while the show could’ve just thrown it in there, it was a pretty odd thing to randomly come up with and then NEVER EXPLAIN.

Also consider that this episode was rescheduled TWICE because they kept “reshooting” things. They blamed it on the weather, but I believe that as much as I believe Sonny when he said it was a “friend”.

This all makes me think that this is going to lead somewhere, and I’m cautiously optimistic it’s at least leading to a canon queer Sonny, perhaps more. Though I might not’ve gotten this far without one more thing in these two moments:

Fucking Broadway musicals.

Is the enjoyment of Broadway musicals a common gay male stereotype, or isn’t it?

SO. My theory is Sonny was looking at the bras and fantasizing about ‘modeling’ them for someone, and then looking up Broadway musicals while trying to plan a date. And who canonically likes Broadway musicals?

There's A Long, Ignominious Trail Of Bans, Registries And Forced Relocation
The travel ban imposed by the president a week ago on people from seven Muslim-majority countries is only the latest executive order through the years grounded in race, ethnicity or country of origin.

President Trump’s executive order limiting immigration from majority-Muslim countries, which ignited protests across the country last weekend, joins a list of controversial presidential decrees through the years that have been aimed at foreign or domestic racial and ethnic groups.

Trump’s executive order, titled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States,” not only bans entry from seven countries — Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen — but also gives priority to religious minorities in those countries.

The order requires several federal agencies to conduct in-person interviews during the visa process and develop a way “to evaluate the applicant’s likelihood of becoming a positively contributing member of society and the applicant’s ability to make contributions to the national interest; and a mechanism to assess whether or not the applicant has the intent to commit criminal or terrorist acts after entering the United States.”

Whether popular or divisive, Trump’s hard-line move to restrict entry into the U.S. is only one more instance where such actions, based on race, ethnicity or nation of origin, have flowed from security concerns, fear or bigotry.

A Simple(?) Tarot deck cleansing

I learned this cleansing from a fellow tarot loving irl friend a few years back. This is a good option for folks who can’t smoke cleanse.

Put your deck in numerical order (start wjth the major arcana, then go into minor arcana. Suit order doesn’t really seem to matter) once they’re all in order, shuffle and repeat the process once more. It’s kind of like hitting a reset button on your deck.

Personally once I reorder the cards a second time I like to let my cards sit in sunlight for a few minutes.

Obviously this can be pretty time consuming so if you don’t have the energy to do this process twice in a row then simply cut it in half. So if I put the cards in order the first time, then I’d just bathe them in sunlight for a bit and shuffle them then ^_^ neither way is wrong!

starlight880  asked:

Why are there people who like Hux? I don't understand;;

I could give you a one word answer, but I’m kind of fired up today, so here’s a more detailed explanation:

Transformative fandom has been dominated by slash for decades. Over the last decade, it’s become even more dominant, as the Original Female Character has been eviscerated to the point of near non-existence (but I digress). 

Slash fandom as we know it is migratory. When something new comes along, slash fandom looks for the characters who can be the new OTP. These two characters usually fit a pattern: They’re both male, both white, and have a certain dynamic. The dynamic usually includes what @wildehack coined as the “Fanon ghost,” a completely fanon character who is projected on a minor character in order to pair him with the desired character.

The fanon ghost is a combination of fussy, straightlaced, and kinky, in contrast to the more emotional bad boy who centers the ships. 

Hux is a minor character, but he is also the only young white guy with a name in the whole movie other than Kylo. And he can very easily be possessed by the fanon ghost for shipping purposes. 

Basically – he’s white, male, and ghostable. 

“The herd is an opponent of all orders of rank, as it sees an ascent from beneath to above as a descent from the majority to the minority. The herd feels the exception, whether it be below or above it, as something opposed and harmful to it. Mistrust is felt towards the exceptions, and to be an exception is experienced as guilt.”

—F. Nietzsche, The Will to Power, §280 (edited excerpt).

highrollinggambler  asked:

This is the moment when the far left leaning people in media and power need a good swift kick in the ass the most, just like with the far leaning conservatives long ago needed. The silent majority can't be silent anymore, they need to get loud and in the loud minorities faces in order to get some form of respect back.

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

>Islamaphobia rises because Europe won’t punish Sharia-loving refugees committing crimes out of fear of being perceived as “racist.”

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

>People start listening to politically incorrect, if not outright racist outlets because the left publicly humiliates them and encourages lynch mob/witch hunt mentality for not towing the line. Neo-Nazi parties start grabbing power in Europe. 

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

>Brexit happens.

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

 >The Democrats, not the people, select Hilary “Nyarlathotep’s Latest Avatar” Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders, spend an entire campaign putting Trump under a microscope via the blatantly-in-their-pocket-media instead of appealing to the working class voters who’ve they done nothing for except ignore and spit on for at least four whole years and generally pull every possible trick they can to get Hilary elected and yet Trump still manages to gaffe, fumble and meme his way to the white house anyway because they’re just THAT fucking incompetent, corrupt, and out of touch with rural Americans.

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

>Continues the same self-righteous finger pointing at everyone and everything except for the people ultimately responsible for their own failure: themselves. Whether it’s “Fake News” (translation: “Any source of information we don’t approve of”), Russian Hackers (which even if it WAS the case, the fact that they care more about condemning the leak instead of doing something about the shady dealings outlined in said leak is telling), or half the entire country for some nebulous and spontaneous uprising of racist conspirators from states who voted for Obama TWICE.

>“Let’s smear everyone who doesn’t agree with our policies/actions as backwards bigots instead of addressing their concerns, that’ll work!”

>Continues to do this two months later not learning a damn thing.

Someone needs to go to the Democratic Party Headquarters and get them to listen to this:

…or the Empire is doomed.

The Enterprise’s five-year mission is almost up. It figures, after one ion storm too many, Kirk finds himself trapped in a parallel universe with only Scotty and Bones by his side. There is no Federation in this dark world, only the Terran Empire. They kill as a first resort, and torture for the most minor of misdemeanors. In order to make it back home alive, Jim needs to act as this dark crew’s captain until he can. But after one brush against this Spock with a beard, getting home could be the least of his worries.

I may have started another set before actually finishing the other mirror one I started, buuuuuuut these take no time to finish, so it serves to be a good break from the ones that take about six hours each.

Also, how do you like my half-assed movie summary? Lol, I hate it. Yeah, the summary doesn’t go with the image (because this is mirror!Kirk), but I drew this before I decided to make it a mock poster.

I’ll probably make ones of the senior crew of the I.S.S. Enterprise in this set, instead of the other set (or that other one is being put on hold indefinitely), because this is 3x easier.

Things I don’t want to read

Anything titled “The mother/sister/wife/daughter of (some dude)”

Another fucking book about a fucking writer (if I ever write a book about a writer, please approach me in public and slap me across the face) (this is win/win tbh)

Or another fucking book about an embittered, superior professor of literature

Another fucking piece of literary fiction with no plot*

Emasculated gay men for the female gaze

Women written by male authors obsessed with breasts who make no effort to explore the internality of their character and simply want to play with her body on the page

Another fucking hetero romance in which the main characters enact unhealthy relationship trope after unhealthy relationship trope, thereby normalizing these patterns for a generation of readers

Another book about a trans character who passes without effort and looks exactly like their preferred gender (“naturally feminine-looking” amab [is this the correct term I always see afab but not this?] women, tall/skinny/flat-chested afab men… ok, granted. Any trans representation in literature is great but like. Eh.)

Another fucking book that feels the need to explain online culture in minute detail to an audience of what are apparently 80-year-olds

Another fucking twee book written in the voice of a child 

Anything labeled “inspirational” or “heartwarming”

Smug politically-correct tokenism that flattens minority characters in order to flatter the author’s virtue for even representing them

Another fucking book that aggressively Shows Its Work by quoting fucking Melville or Tolstoy or Hemingway or I don’t fucking know stop trying to swing your literary-reference dick around like it can protect you from criticism, or perhaps just stun us into silence… seriously. Put that thing away. Also, quit running to the literary canon as if quoting the Big Names somehow legitimizes your sorry dishwater prose about literal dishwater yes I’m looking at you Chad Harbach


*A literary agent informed me that literary fiction is language-driven, commercial fiction plot-driven, and “upmarket fiction,” a newish coinage, is “character driven.” Pardon me, but shouldn’t all fiction be language-driven AND plot-driven AND character-driven? For fuck’s sake. I’m so tired of the masturbatory fantasies of mediocre MFA grads who know how to do The One Thing they learned in That One Workshop.

Bones is proving to be difficult right now… otherwise I would post it tonight.

anonymous asked:

do u have any tips on how i can safely bind if im not out to my parents and im a minor, so i cant order my own stuff without my parents knowing?

If you own two sports bras, wear one frontward and one backwards, it should help with binding and its not suspicious for parents :)

Lord Pastel Lance is proud of our disciple! Diligently & vigorously spreading our creed across the blogs that child molesting is vile while failing to recognize extremely obvious blaring red flags.

And continuing to chase after minors in order to spread the wisdom of Klance! Truly an exemplary blogger for all to mimic.

Their persistence in chasing after a 14 year old, who blocked them for being creepy, is remarkable to witness. Their passion to spread the love of Klance is unbeatable.

We bless you with courage, young disciple! Godspeed with your ruthless conversion of the filthy Shaladins & the traitorous Shallurans.
