moral objection

You know why truscum ideology is harmful? You know why I advocate defining trans identities by gender euphoria rather than gender dysphoria?

Because I am seeing countless people supporting the trans military ban by saying that we are not mentally or emotionally capable of serving because “gender dysphoria is a mental illness”

Let me reiterate that

By defining trans identities by gender dysphoria rather than gender euphoria, you are giving ammunition to people who want to discriminate against us and lock us up

I have horrible dysphoria, I have struggled with mental illness… But I’m not mentally or emotionally unstable specifically because I’m trans. I would never join the US military out of moral objections, but just… Think about the implications of this shit

and fuck truscum, seriously. They keep us under the thumb of transphobes

saturn is a point of stress in the natal chart; where it is located indicates themes in our life in which seek clarity. we try to perfect this part of our lives & personality, and subsequently have much to learn from saturn’s house placement. this self-imposed pressure can truly crack some.

if your saturn falls in…

your first house, you seek to perfect your image and impression; thus, you may appear quite serious. your worldview is critical and you may find yourself quite skeptical. your perception of the world and others takes time to fully accept.

your second house, your concern is for financial security and a crystal clear set of values. you may accept your morals as an objective view and have troubles relating to others’ values.

your third house, you are careful with your words, and to want to speak with purpose. communication is deeply important to you. may be critical of your education growing up & thus struggled.

your fourth house, your family structure was one you took responsibility for. you may have felt compelled to grow up early to take care of your family. possible critical view of the father or authoritative parent.

your fifth house, uninhibited creativity may be hard to achieve. you may, quite literally, take fun seriously; you seek to perfect technique in your artistic endeavors of choice. may unfairly compare yourself to idols in that vein.

your sixth house, you may feel compelled to take on a lot of responsibilities in work, whether you’re prepared for it or not. may over-exert yourself and this can indicate tendencies of a hypochondriac. you put serious value in hard work.

your seventh house, you find yourself sacrificing in your partnerships. you feel your standards are just and fine, but there is much to learn to benefit from your relationships. you may feel like an old soul without knowing why.

your eighth house, you may feel you understand all there is to know about the world. lessons are needed to embrace the metaphysical that you can be very acute to. may stress & obsess over others’ belongings and values, intimacy, and life changes/mortality.

your ninth house, you may feel a desire to have control over a philosophy or religion of life. may have felt repressed or forced to believe a certain way and this carries confusion into adult life. you fervently seek the truth of any ideology you can get your hands on.

your tenth house, you may stress about your public image and the immense effort you put to making your goals reality. there may be a sensitivity to critique. possibility of taking a long time to cultivate your persona & desired career.

your eleventh house, there is a desire for control of crowds. there are lessons to be learned in this, as well as cultivating empathy for others. may indicate feelings of isolation, ‘alone in a room full of people.’ feeling lack of support.

your twelfth house, your sense of self-control is difficult to actualize. you may feel as though the odds are always stacked against you. may yearn for an overly-structured way of life to compensate for a chaotic inside. may indicate difficulty moving on. may be constantly fearful without understanding the source.

All shade, why didn’t the girls who had kids at my age just get abortions? Like why throw your life away just because of some arbitrary moral objection. Like now you have to raise the kid and hold your life back. Now you’re going to raise you kid thinking it’s ok to just have a kid when you’re 18-19. Now society has to deal with the kid who will be damaged by their parents unhealthy relationship with each other and eventual divorce. Like abortion is easy and painless and you can still get preggers in the future after having one. Teen Mom shouldve shown you how dumb of a choice having a kid at this age is. I feel like teen pregnancy has enough awareness for everyone to understand that having a kid while being a kid is dumb.

okay guys, i’m just going to write my own independent post on this at this point

Look, I’ll even use proper grammar and punctuation to make it more readable. I’m being serious now.

I don’t know if this level of necromancer discourse was expected when either Good or Bard made their respective posts, but I’ve been tagged in quite a few of the branch-off posts and now I feel the need to tell you how I feel about necromancers and necromancy.

anonymous asked:

27 for andrew for the writing thing pleaseeeeeeee

from this list of prompts - please don’t send more! 

inspired by @kickfoxing and this ask i received ages ago

“Neil,” Andrew says. Neil is comfortable in bed, where King has deigned to press against his side, so he acknowledges this only with a grunt. “Your cat is getting fat.”

“Hey,” Neil protests sleepily. “Don’t be mean to King. He’s perfect just the way he is.” Neil reaches out to scratch behind King’s ears, who lets out a soft mrrp noise.

“Not that one,” Andrew says, and Neil notices he’s locked in a staring contest with Sir.

“Well, he’s perfect, too. They’re the most beautiful kitties in the world,” Neil says in a soft tone.

Andrew makes an unimpressed sound.

“You try and stop them eating if you’re that concerned,” Neil says, then tries to curl in closer to King, who responds by jumping off the bed like he knows he’s been betrayed.

Andrew doesn’t respond. He’d never admit he actually cared about the cats enough to put them on a diet. Either that, or he has a moral objection to diets.

But Neil has to admit Andrew has a point. Sir keeps growing, even though Neil takes more care when pouring out their food.

“Is he not getting enough exercise?” Neil asks, somewhat directed at Andrew. “Do people take cats on walks? Should we walk them?”

Andrew catches Neil’s eye. “I’m not walking the cats.”

“Do people do leashes for cats? I could take them on runs with me.”

King meows, climbing onto the counter.

“No, you’re right, they wouldn’t run,” Neil says, looking somewhat upset at this revelation. Andrew doesn’t comment on the fact that Neil seems to have construed a cat meowing for a comment from him. 

Neil finally has to admit that something’s weird a few weeks later, because while Sir has a definite beer belly, King is as lean as ever. “Is there some kind of allergy cats can have that makes them fat?” Neil asks the vet, rather bluntly, by Andrew’s estimation.

The vet blinks. “I’ll, uh, look at- Sir Fat Cat McCatterson?” He seems rather thrown off by the name, for some reason, but Neil just nods solemnly. Andrew doesn’t blame the vet. He doesn’t acknowledge their names if he can help it.

The vet says, after a short time has passed, “Well, good news. There’s nothing wrong with her!”

Her? “Sir’s a boy,” Neil tries to protest.

“Well, I’m afraid I’m going to have to say you’re wrong there. King is, in fact, about to be a mother.”

Neil blinks a couple of times. “Oh. Well, I was thinking it’d be much worse than that, at least,” he says, sounding thoroughly confused.

Andrew looks at Neil, attempting to bore a whole into his brain. It’s the only way he thinks he could ever figure out what’s going on up there. “You never checked?”

Neil shrugs. “Nicky just suggested the names and we went from there.”

“A name doesn’t define the sex,” Andrew says.

Sir meows. 

“I’m sorry we put you on a diet, baby,” Neil coos, immediately going to take her from the vet. “Blame Andrew. He’s the mean dad.”

Anti-Shipping vs. NOTPs

I think a lot of problems boil down to terminology … 

I’m seeing some anti-shippers confused, as they feel they have to drop shallura, because they’re anti-shaladin … they can’t ship one without feeling hypocritical, as they’d either have to use the same arguments as shippers or participate in a double-standard with one ship okay and one not okay.

See, we didn’t have anti-shippers when I grew up.

We had NOTPs.

It meant that - for example - Shiro/Keith could be a person’s NOTP, because of a variety of personal reasons … maybe they see Keith as too young, or dislike the perceived power imbalance, or just not think they have chemistry … but they could still ship Shiro/Allura … they might headcanon Allura as an adult, or think they have chemistry, or just enjoy the aesthetics.

There was no ‘discrepancy’ or ‘hypocrisy’, because it wasn’t made into something about morality or right/wrong, but just … what’s right/wrong for the individual. If Sheith’s not right for you, Shallura may be right instead, so one is your NOTP and one may even be your OTP. It’s all good.

In anti-shipping, it becomes more about ‘morality’ and an objective ‘right/wrong’, so a few people paint themselves into corners … if you dislike shaladin only because it involves a teenager, then proceed to base all arguments upon that fact, and then you can’t then like another ship with a teenager without seeming to contradict yourself. 

If a lot of people return to the NOTP system (“it’s not for me, but it may be for you”) as opposed to the anti-shipping system (“it’s bad for everyone, so it’s right for no one”) … we’d probably all be happier, as everyone would be able to enjoy what they liked.

Death is not so bad come to think of it. It doesn’t hurt. One merely ceases to exist. Granted, the act of perishing might be uncomfortable depending on the circumstances. But in any case there will be fine and brave people willing to aid and alleviate this process, allowing for a relatively short timeframe of final deterioration. Even more so, provided that one is fortunately located and unimpeded by personal moral objections, one is allowed to put the final dot behind one’s own life’s sentence. Especially writers should appreciate this sentiment.
   
Factually there is nothing to fear about death. It is the clinging onto life’s virtues that pains us. The potential regret of not having lived it to the fullest; the having to say one’s final goodbye to loved ones. Yes, there may be hardship in the twilight of existence. But such is a product of life nonetheless. If ever you should fear the process of dying, remember you control the future intrinsic circumstances of your passing right now.
   
Befriend people. Be kind and do not hide your affection for anyone. Share the love in your heart uninhibitedly. After all, in the end all that matters is the people whom we have touched and the people whom have been so generous to touch us.
   
Live actively. Regret is but a product of should haves and could haves but didn'ts. Your wants and needs matter. You matter. As a matter of fact, if there ever was such a thing as purpose in life it would be to share your unadulterated self with the world. That you might cause that unique ripple in the pond of existence that only you can. Surely, in the boundlessness of space and time such will resonate for eternity.
  
It is quite soothing to know it will, though it also comes with a sense of responsibility exclusive to sentient beings; those who have evolved beyond an instinctual state of existence. It is the duty to actively seek to be oneself, and then be oneself unapologetically. Know that guilt and shame only spring from situations in which one reacts incongruently. So allow yourself to be unburdened.
   
Do not fear death. Use the fear that comes with its premise to find out what is truly important. Rejoice. You are alive. You are here with us. Grant us the gift of you, and claim your purposed place in the universe. In the end only you can make sure your passing will be with a smile of satisfaction. Right now is the only time to foster that smile’s preconditions. There has been but one time I have witnessed a passing in the serenity of fulfillment, I reckon it should not have to be so extraordinary.
   
I know these words are of little significance in the grander scheme of things, being but fluttering thoughts destined to be forgotten, but they are part of my ripple. Therefore, even if they remain unread, or will never be understood to their full extent, they are worthy of being uttered. I intend to live my life applying the same logic. That is my lesson. Or in other words, my grandfather’s last emitted ripple in the fabric of the universe. A resonance I am now merely echoing to the best of my efforts. Time will tell if it is the only earthly possession I have worth sharing. Take it.

Libra - Cosmic Courtroom 

If you understand or if you don’t
If you believe or if you doubt
There’s a universal justice
And the eyes of truth
Are always watching you

Libra is the cosmic energy of justice and associates with morality, righteousness, and objectivity. Revered in both myth and material, the judge is an esteemed member of society, capable of generating law bound by conscious impartiality and morale. On a shaking tightrope, the Libra is constantly striving for balance, easily shaken by a hidden sensitivity and sharp intellect. There is a natural diplomacy the Libra thought process follows, constantly integrating multiple perspectives and attempting to find the neutral mid point. This can be maddening and chaotic inside for the Libra, where they are forced to insert incredible judgment amongst conscience and concern. Libra and the 7th house rules the lower court, legislation, and legality. Saturn exalts in Libra, and Saturn governs all forms of Karmic Law, authority, justice, and diplomacy. These domains of life express cohesively in the Libra archetype.

Libra self mediates with highly developed righteousness. And Libra is an incredible dreamer, but intense psychological precision must be inserted into every decision or judgment. The use of justice systems, contracts, and law provides the social cohesion and bliss Libra envisages, because equality and virtue becomes rule. Libra is not where law becomes corrupt or amoral. Libra is the purest expression of bringing oppositions into balance, restoring inequality, and maintaining peace through divisions of principles. They retain all the cheques and balances in order and reins in the laws upon which civilised society conducts itself. The function of the Scales is to balance the ‘system’. The Egyptians saw the sacred Scale of Ma’at. Ma’at as the goddess of balance, justice, truth, and order. It was She who kept the universe from drifting into chaos. At death, a human’s heart was measured on Her scales against a feather. This determined if the individual had lived harmoniously with natural laws and could move on to the next realm. Souls too heavy were immediately devoured by demons. The responsibility of Ma’at expresses through Libra, who upholds this grand cosmic duty with grace. Libras conceive the undercurrent of universal justice and recite this through thought and action. 

Libras do not believe that calling out inequality or sexism makes one a victim, but is rather empowering and declaring of social destruction. The young Libra can live in an unruly world of wild oppositions in which they swing wildly between. The scales come into balance with age, experience, self reflection, and developing a sense of proportion with the use of discrimination and judgment. When the scales are not balanced, the Libra can become heavy hearted, reactive, vulnerable, sad, and lonely, while the mind is in high, chaotic flight. Intuition must be weighed with intellect to bring pure morale, retribution and righteous answers to light. There is a sensual nature of Venus that glosses the airy Libra mind, it gives Libras an ability to see a beautiful or reformed society that they promote with natural law. The Libra scales tend to tip on the side of other and away from the self, expressing their devotion to people and decency. As God’s appointed judge of the cosmos, in divine eyes Libra is forever your honour.

Different- A BATIM Fic

Man these stories just keep popping out of me. Who knew @doodledrawsthings Hell’s Studio AU would be such a burst of inspiration for me? Anyways, this one deals with the passage of time, and a few events that happened in the U.S. during that shift, namely the 60s-70s sexual revolution and how our 40s era friends might react to it. Still takes place about 30 years after their creation so time period is somewhere in the 70s, probably late 70s. Hope you guys enjoy!

the-cyanide-exploder

I’m always sick of seeing people constantly comparing the Republic’s corruption/hypocrisy to the Empire.

Yeah, I am too (obviously!).

If people prefer the Imperial stories or aesthetic or whatever, there’s nothing wrong with that. But the arguments that get made to support the idea it’s somehow the more equivalent to the Republic (or even morally superior) are so poorly supported that it comes across less like a legitimate argument/discussion point and more like the fans wanting to have their cake and eat it too (I.e. they want the Empire to be more interesting/cooler/whatever and be the “good guys”).

The two main problems I have with the people making these arguments are:

1. They make a borderline insulting claim that things like genocide, slavery, xenophobia and fascist totalitarianism are tolerable flaws in a society while some corruption and self-righteous hypocrisy are not

2. They almost always try to pretend like the Empire isn’t also corrupt or hypocritical.

I’ve seen some interesting theories on why people would feel the way the first point suggests - one being that the more mundane evils of the Republic are more realistic/hit home more than the overarching/overwhelming evils of the Empire, so people find it harder to separate their “real world reaction” from their reaction to the fictional SWTOR universe. It seems somewhat plausible, and I’d certainly prefer that to people actually believing the Empire’s system and principles is genuinely more moral. Regardless, it drives me insane that people try to sit there with a straight face and say that bureaucratic corruption and hypocrisy are the same or worse as mass killings and slavery and what not.

Anyway…

The second point annoys me a lot, though, because there’s massive double standards regarding the criticisms of the Republic compared with the whitewashing the Empire often gets. Some examples:

  • People don’t like Garza experimenting on soldiers in SoR. I agree with them. But Empire has multiple examples of them experimenting on people (i.e. Needles and his rakgoul virus, the doctor on Nar Shaddaa, trying out a new virus on rebelling slaves on Dromund Kaas). Or, say, how the support staff in Imperial Intelligence functions. Only one of these gets referenced as an unforgivable sin.
  • People criticize the superweapons from the JK storyline (I do too!). But they ignore the Sith influence on that program, the fact the Republic was mothballing them and wasn’t going to use it and (most importantly) it’s the Empire that actually uses them, including murdering millions of people on Uphrades.
  • People constantly complain about how the Republic’s actions don’t perfectly match its ideals. Sure, I get that (even if that’s an impossible standard). But neither does the Empire - for all of the speechifying about how the Empire brings law and order and peace (like from General Rakton after the Gauntlet), we see time and again that those “principles” mean absolutely nothing if the get in the way of political or Sith goals, which is exactly how you end up with the society the Empire is.
  • People really hate Belsavis and what it represents (I do too). But the Imperial reaction is twofold. First - “Why didn’t we think of this ourselves?” and second - “Now that we’ve seen it in action, let’s do it on an even bigger/worse scale”
  • People complain about the Republic’s corruption but corruption exists on both sides. Quinn’s entire reason for having his career sidelined is because a single Moff has a vendetta and can’t be removed. Imperial and Sith commanders regularly undermine each other and the Empire for their own petty interests. The entire organizational structure is basically a mass of corruption, backstabbing and self-interest.
  • People hate Saresh (I hate how she was written post-Makeb, so I blame the writers) for being a warmonger/etc.. But what’s one Saresh compared to multiple Sith deliberately undermining the peace treaty (i.e. dear old Baras who wants to plunge the galaxy into another massive war for his own gain and advancement)? The entire Sith Order is basically run by warmongers (except the “not insane” ones are somehow treated like progressive icons by some in the fandom. Not to mention the Empire was headed by an omnicidal Vitiate for years without objection.

In general, each failing of the Republic gets treated as some damning and unforgivable transgression against the moral fabric of the SWTOR galaxy. Meanwhile, Imperial flaws are either papered over/ignored or shrugged off.

All this would be bad enough from my point of view, but then you throw in other stuff the Empire is doing:

  • Doing the Hutts a “favor” by using a biological agent to commit genocide against the Evocii on Nar Shaddaa. The Imperial commander there also speaks of having multiple such facilities to continue their work against other non-humans
  • Slavery on a massive scale
  • Massive amounts of xenophobia. Even “progressive” Darth Malgus was more interested in allowing aliens to serve to bolster the Empire’s ranks, not out of some moral objection to how the Empire treated them. Also note the Imperial attitudes toward the “animals” on Taris (aka the Cathar)
  • Basically everything about the Sith - murdering fellow initiates. Murdering people above you in the ranks. Murdering people below you in the ranks. Ordering war crimes and having no one care about it. Murdering family members and other targets tied to your rivals (i.e. why Malgus killed Eleena so she couldn’t be used against him)
  • Deliberate targeting of civilians (i.e. Trooper Tatooine, Imperial Balmorra and Taris, etc.) both in general and to test new weapons or to terrorize them
  • Torture/mistreatment of prisoners portrayed as normal procedure rather than something wrong (i.e. there’s those soldiers on Ord Mantell beating up the suspected separatist but the player is allowed to intervene)
  • Other war crimes, both ordered by Sith and institutionalized by the Imperial hierarchy
  • Suppression of free speech, reform, etc.

 And so on.

The Republic isn’t perfect and that’s a good thing. It’d be boring if it was some pristine institution unblemished in any way and made up entirely of perfect heroes with no moral dilemmas. I have no problem with that - that’s how fiction should be.

But I wish people would stop pretending the Empire isn’t far, far worse. Like I mentioned at the start of this rant, it’s like people don’t want to admit that the Empire is still the bad/worse side and want to portray themselves as rooting for/supporting the good guys.

It’s something I’ve experienced before (try being an Alliance fan in WoW sometimes!), but it’s still frustrating.

 I’d be a lot less annoyed with people just admitting they think the Empire is cooler/more interesting/whatever than I am with the mental gymnastics they perform to try to justify their fandom on a moral or ethical level. You’re not rooting for the good guys. And that’s fine, just be honest about it.

Beauty & The Beast QuickTypes

OFFICIAL TYPINGS by Charity / the Mod

QuickType is a method of typing in which a character exhibits the traits of a specific personality type, but there’s insufficient evidence within the narrative to provide full or specific cognitive examples at length.

LeFou [ESFJ]

LeFou is an effective “rabble rouser” and champion for Gaston, who plies him with constant praise, affirmation, and reassurance, and whom receives and embraces similar advice from Mrs. Potts (“You’re too good for him”). He easily asserts his emotions (musing that Gaston may be the monster “at large” rather than the Beast) and looks to Gaston for affirmation, fearful he may have overstepped his bounds (“Too much?”). He desires so much to please Gaston, that he ignores his own moral qualms about their treatment of Maurice, and tries to convince Gaston to do the right thing (“There’s still time to go back…”) (Fe).

His mythological “hero worship” of Gaston stems from Gaston’s war heroism, as well as archetypes of “the perfect man” – LeFou both admires and looks up to him, as an icon of what the ideal dashing figure should look like, and tries to emulate him, believing if he can be like Gaston, he can be heroic too (Si). Eventually, LeFou starts to read between the lines and see the bigger picture of Gaston’s behavior, stepping beyond hero worship to perceive his true self (Ne). Only after Gaston betrays him does LeFou analyze his feelings and decide that Gaston isn’t worthy of his friendship (Ti).

Lumiere [ENFJ]

Lumiere is an emotionally energetic fellow, focused on making Belle feel “at home in the castle,” who tries (unsuccessfully) to recruit Cogsworth into a brighter frame of mind and is a superb leader when it comes to dictating the emotional mood of the rest of the castle’s inhabitants (Fe). He believes (correctly) Belle will be the one to break the spell, and orients everything toward achieving that ultimate goal (Ni), recruiting others to help him (Fe).

He has a strong sense of fashion and aesthetics, and loves to put himself physically (as much as a candlestick can) into his performances (Se), while also encouraging others to participate for a greater overall whole (Fe/Se). Lumiere only analyzes things under pressure or stress, preferring to go with his instincts and strong feelings (inferior Ti).

Mrs. Potts [ESFJ]

Mrs. Potts cares most about the castle and keeping its inhabitants happy, including the master. She’s not afraid to confront others when she needs to, but often does it in a pleasant and directing way, rather than with ruthless criticism (Fe). She sets out to put Belle at ease and tend to her comforts (FeSi). She doesn’t mind living in the castle, or tending her responsibilities, and has a strong sense of personal impressions when it comes to the past (Si) and their own inability to “do anything” to prevent the prince’s curse.

She sees different possibilities, which makes her a little more skeptical than Lumiere and is open to things changing, but has also had time to form a greater picture of the reason the entire castle is under a curse (Ne): she shows an indication of lower Ti, in accepting that they were culpable in transforming the innocent young prince into a selfish king and deserve their punishment (Fe’s moral objectivity).

Cogsworth [ISTJ]

Cogsworth likes things “just so,” and doesn’t like to take chances, since one cannot foresee the inevitable consequences (lower Ne). He has an immense amount of knowledge about the castle and doesn’t mind sharing it (SiTe) but also has become comfortable with how things are; to the point when after he becomes human again, and he sees a woman he’d rather forget, for a second he wants to turn back into a clock! The longer something is a certain way, the harder time Cogsworth has adjusting (Si).

He’s practical and often scoffs at Lumiere’s crazier or more outlandish ideas, since he sees them as nonsensical and improbable; Cogsworth prefers things straightforward and that make sense (Te). He warms up to Belle and others on his own terms, rather than on Lumiere’s timing, and gets annoyed when the candlestick tries to force him to be social (Fi). Only over time, through cautious hope, does he begin to think optimistically about the future and breaking the curse (Ne).

Maurice [INTP]

Maurice has spent his lifetime designing music boxes, knowing how to fix them and handle their inner intricacies just right in order to make them play the tune he wants them to sing (Ti) but is at heart, a sentimental dreamer, who wants more for his daughter than this life (Ne). He left his wife because she asked it, to save Belle’s life (a logical decision - Ti), but some part of him still longs for what he has lost and refuses to forget or entirely move on from the past (Si). He has a warm, generous, and affable nature (Fe).
