my friend posted this on twitter and doesn't have a tumblr

anonymous asked:

At first I found the joke about jimin around whit people funny, because I'm a POC that works in retail that's my face all the time with rude costumers but then I just started disliking the joke. Cause you can tell my baby just shy and he doesn't know what to do exactly. He's in a new culture and country so of course he's going to act a little confused and mono tone. The he was getting hate that seriously was so stupid. I hope he doesn't see any of it because I don't want him to beat himself up.

Thank you for agreeing with me! I’m just furious about how people can overlook the fact that at least some people that has the same point of view as mine and disagreeing with the “joke” were not thinking about how it would hurt the “white” but JIMIN!!!! 

Why use color? Why use his pics in such a joke? I am offended by the joke, not because it uses the word “white”, but because you use Jimin for your ridiculous vendetta. Do you know how much hate he will get by people who misunderstood things? Do you know how many people are now looking at the boys and into the fandom thanks to Billboard? And how many there are that just now joining the fandom and might not get the joke?

No, I’m not talking about how it’s hurt people in that skin color, or any certain race. But how it will hurt Jimin. Don’t you people know how easy it is for them to get access to everything we put online? Even if you’re going to say “no, the boys don’t have tumblr”. This is the internet! People in twitter has access as much as we have to theirs and they can spread our posts as much as we can spread theirs on our blogs, and it’ll be no problem for that “joke” to reach their eyes sooner or later. Stop overlooking that fact alone, and please consider how Jimin would feel if he sees, when he must’ve already feel bad that day for being so out of place and nervous about the award and the event itself. He was in a foreign land. If only you use the caption “Let me go home” instead of that caption, then I will laugh along with you.


Anonymous said: It’s a joke. Don’t worry it won’t be affecting white peoples privilege in the end of the day :-) I don’t care if they get butt hurt over a joke when they don’t get discriminated/oppressed in real life. Poc get murdered for just their skin color and lots of other things I can say.

This message just came in at the same time I was typing that long answer above, so I’m just going to put this here because I know there are many of you who thinks the same as this person and I hate having to type my answer all over again, when I know for some reason our logical answers can never get through to your heads. Please read my long answer above your message, my kind person. And tell me this, have you watched the current interview on Kiisfm FB live? Did you see the interviewer mentioning to the boys how the phrase “third guy from the left” becomes a trending topic? Now when you do see this, please imagine if the boys go to the internet, and not only they find those posts about Jin and Jungkook, but also the Jimin’s “joke”. Now try to imagine how they feel about it, and come back to me. Please don’t point your fingers at me calling me whitey as you guys did to my POC friends. I’m Asian. My skin color tone is yellow and I have nothing against others with different skin color than mine.

This will be the last time I answer this matter. Like I said in the previous tag, anyone coming in trying to talk about this again and disregard my long ass answer above will be ignored. I’m done talking. And if you’re not going to listen then so be it. I’m just praying no hell is going to be let loose. And praying that Jimin is having a hell of fun out there.

Until Dawn Headcannons
  • Update #2
  • Matt: To me he seems like the kind of guy who adores Marvel/DC/ Superhero movies. Why? I have no idea. But I can't help but imagine him at Halloween being the most excited (behind Josh of course) and just dressing up as whatever superhero he can think of. Ever since he was a child he's been doing it and can even talk the others into joining him in a group costume sort of thing. (Ex: Mike as Batman, Matt as Robin, Emily as Catwoman, Jessica as Harley Quinn, Josh as The Joker, Chris as Riddler, and Ashley as Poison Ivy) On his Tumblr is ALL SUPERHEO stuff. Not even kidding either. (Some can be other funny stuff, but mostly Superheros.) He reblogs a lot of Chris' stuff and Jessica's.
  • Bonus: Total dog person. Power bottom. Tall (5'11)
  • Chris: We all know Chris is a huge nerdy boy who can't get off his phone to save his life. So I think he has a Tumblr (Let's say they all do actually). He's the one who secretly has one, no one knows he has one, but they all follow him without realizing it and always try to talk him into getting one so they all can follow him. He just rolls his eyes and says 'Maybe some time bro.' And they never once find out he has one. On this he reblogs the shit out nerdy stuff he likes (Video games, TV shows, Movies, etc.) and a lot of relationship bull crap that he insists is he thinks is stupid but has a secret love for corny/cheesey things and because of this blog he reblogs a LOT of it.
  • Bonus: He is SO a Dog Person. And I could see him a bit on the chubbier side, just not like, huge. Tall (6'2)
  • Josh: Just like Matt he adores Halloween, maybe a bit more than Matt. By a bit more I mean he goes crazy when it comes to decorating and his entire house becomes one huge haunted house every year and he pays people to actually hide around his huge house and scare people in the middle of one of his infamous Halloween parties. Sometimes he gets so into decorating that he actually forgets to dress up once October 31st comes and goes to get a last minute costume that he always somehow, in such little time, makes look fabulous, even more than Chris's which is usually just cardboard on his chest and he calls himself a knight, so it's easy to outdo him. Hard to outdo Jessica and Emily though, they both go all out. Josh's Tumblr is just full of Halloween shit all year round with the occasional favorite TV show posts/Couples. (Hannigram 5ever)
  • Bonus: He is SO a Cat Person. And I can see him being slighter taller and thin. Also; Power Bottom/Top. Tall (6'4)
  • Jessica: We all know that Jessica is the Queen B, Cheerleader, Homecoming Queen, all that. SO of COURSE she would have an Instagram. I mean seriously, if we follow along with the stereotype she DEF has one. But! Her Instagram is a bit. . .different. I feel like Jessica is a cosplayer and actually enjoys dressing up like her favorite characters, doing make tutorials, all of that. I can see her being the Fangirl of the group and swooning over ships and head cannons and whatever the new trend is on Tumblr or Twitter. And she sends Emily Anon love all the time without revealing who she is.
  • Bonus: Cat Person. Average (5'6)
  • Emily: 4.0 Bitch. She is a know an all, as we can see in the game. But I have a feeling she is actually a bit insecure but tries to hide it by false confidence and knows that she isn't the best but is always trying her hardest. (Strict parents, perhaps?) She constantly posts on her Twitter and Tumblr new fashion ideas and life hacks which Jessica reblogs the hell out of. She reblogs the hell out of Jessica's make up tutorials all the time and always puts a heart in the tags.
  • Bonus: Cat Person. Tall-ish (5'8)
  • Ashley: Ah yes, the girl I wish I didn't relate to but I do. Except I'm way funnier just sayin'. She is a writer as said in the game. So I can imagine her, Sam and Jessica getting along famously, all three of them work together on a lot of projects and Ashley, being the writer will write fanfictions for Jessica and have Sam illustrate them for her. Her Tumblr is full of fanfics, reblogs of her favorite couples, and art Sam has done for her fanfics.
  • Bonus: Cat person, Short (5'2).
  • Sam: I can see her being an artist, and she, like Ashley and Jessica, absolutely adore shipping and head cannons of all sorts and will always read Ashley's work and reblog them for her followers to see and then she normally illustrates the hell out of whatever couple Ashley had written about. And of course she also posts vegan recipes and how to keep healthy and selfies of her climbing trips. On another 'secret' blog of hers (Josh totally found it) She draws pictures of her friends in different couplings, her favorites to draw are Josh/Chris and Ashley/Her. When Josh found that blog she threatened to beat him up if he ever tells anyone about it. (Chris secretly found it and using his fake blog loves to reblog the stuff)
  • Bonus: Dog Person. Average height (5'5)
  • Mike: I can totally see Mike being a theater buff, fighting for the role to play as Romeo in the school reenactment of Romeo and Juliet (Whom of which he always gets Jessica to try out for) I can see his Tumblr being full of nerdy/cute things from famous plays and characters in those plays. He reblogs the shit out of Matt's stuff and without realizing it, Chris' stuff. He sends Josh a lot of prank ideas as well which of course he helps Josh with to do to the girls and/or Chris.
  • Bonus: Cat person. (idk why. . .it fits) Tall (6'6)
  • Beth: I can see her as more of the athletic type of girl. She is always trying out for the school teams and has done every sport there is. She's not the biggest fan of Halloween but loves to see Josh so excited about it. (Though when he hides skeletons everywhere and screams SKELETON WAR she hates his guts.) Her Tumblr is just full of sport life hacks and how to keep healthy. She reblogs a lot of Sam's Vegan recipe posts and Hannah's intellectual/serious posts.
  • Bonus: Dog Person. Tall-ish (5'8)
  • Hannah: Hannah I can being a huge nerd, but the really serious kind. Her blog is full of feminist ideals and how to be equals, she believes everyone should be treated the same not one person is better than the others. Her blog involves a lot of political ideas and how the world should be working and dissing the economy on several posts. She posts a lot of things that can actually help people and always lends a hand to her followers when asked a question. She reblogs a lot of Sam's climbing posts, and some of Josh's silly posts.
  • Bonus: Cat Person. Tall-ish (5'7)
  • Mike/Ashley: Very very rare pairing. But I believe the two of the mare actually pretty good friends behind everyone's backs and Mike constantly compliments Ashley's writings or acting skills when she helps him practice while everyone else is busy or doesn't want to deal with his over dramatic crap. It's a platonic relationship, they go out for coffee a lot and listen to one another go on and on about their days, actually listening to one another.
  • Sam/Ashley: I ship it, everyone should ship it. My head cannon for these two would be that they are constantly bickering about something small and everyone always makes them make up and kiss/hug. Samantha has the biggest crush on Ashley but because Ashley supposedly likes Chris she backs off a bit and just fantasizes and draws. Ashley of course likes her back and wishes that she could tell her but her parents are homophobic and she's too scared to come out. Sam's parents know that she is a lesbian and accept her for who she is.
  • Chris/Josh: For these two I can see them accidentally being together. Everyone actually believes the two of them are together and every time they try to get with a girl the girls asks 'Why?' and 'Aren't you with Josh/Chris?' which confuses the fuck out of these two babies but they insist they're not but no one believes them. I can see them just lying around, drinking, playing video games and sneaking kisses to one another every once in awhile, always insisting no homo until one day it goes full homo. Also, they are both meme loving shits and scream JOHN CENA to one another all the time, or whatever the most famous famous meme is at the time. (Josh walked around with a 'Promblem?' mask on for 3 months until Sam finally ripped it off of his face and destroyed it.)
  • Mike/Josh: These two are constantly pranking one another, there is no boundary and sometime they can hurt each other from the prank but they do it all in fun, neither of them are upset with the other, they just try to find a way to one up one another. I can see the two of them hanging out and actually comparing problems and helping one another solve them and being really good friends.
  • Matt/Mike: 'If I had to choose a dude' Is what Mike likes to call Matt, making the other boy always glare and flip him off while Mike whispers 'I love you' to him. I feel like they'd have a great back and forth to one another and always keep each other on their toes, always waiting for the lighthearted insults from the other. I can see the two of them being the douchebags at parties that jump off the roof into the pool while holding hands and then complaining about things together. (Ex: Emily, Girls in general)
  • Mike/Jessica: Like in the game Mike cares more about Jessica than anything it seems and would do anything for her, but I see them more in a brotherly love way? Like, I adore them together but I can also see them just acting like brother/sister. Still one of OTPs, but I can see them like that. Mike constantly gives Jess flowers and candies and snuggles with her whenever she asks or is in the mood and just worships every part of her like he would die without it, emotionally and physically. I can also see him being the one to fix her hair if she's tired or there's no mirror around for her to fix it herself.
  • Mike/Sam: Even though they are different in almost every way I can so see them together or (like Jessica) in a brother/sister type way. I adore this pairing as well and like them in any way really. I can see the two of them making plans to go climbing together and do dangerous stunts that the others are too chickenshit to try. They secretly cuddle when the other is feeling vulnerable and feel like it's something personal that the other's shouldn't know about and are content. None of it ruins anything so they don't see the point. They care about each other's well being.
  • Josh/Sam: These two I have a small head cannon for; They are best friends due to Hannah, meeting they instantly hit it off and Josh may hold some feelings for her but she has told him on various occasions she thinks of him like a brother. He doesn't mind. She realizes they have a connection, but knows it would never work due to her feelings for Ashley and Josh's for Chris.
  • Chris/Sam: These two of course joke around constantly and are always pushing each other's buttons and making terrible jokes (mostly on Sam's end) and are the people who can go from playful to serious in an instant during their conversations. They sometimes talk about deep, personal matters that Chris tries to shy away from but Sam pulls him right back in, knowing this was important for both of them and in the end they leave feeling relieved and thankful for the other.
DON'T QUIT SOCIAL MEDIA

So the Internet has been completely swept up by the Essena O'Neill story and her reasons for quitting social media. And although I believe she has some extremely valid points, I just wanted to say a few things. I definitely agree with Essena that people are certainly taking social media too seriously and get too wrapped up in numbers. And I’ve been there. Over all my social media platforms (that being, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr etc.,) I have a few thousand “followers,” which may not be a lot to some people, but I definitely do not know that many people in real life. And I’m not claiming to be social media famous in any way because, let’s be honest, there’s probably nobody reading this right now. But the point I’m trying to make is, having a thousand followers on Twitter hasn’t made me any happier or made my life any better than it was when I had 50 followers. With that being said, however, I love social media. And I love following thousands of people from all around the world with unique experiences and stories to share. Social media has helped me become aware of so many things that I would have otherwise been ignorant to. Social media has helped educate me on other cultures and events around the world and even things happening in my own country. So please, don’t stop posting your experiences or sharing your stories. Make the most of the resources and technology that we do have, but don’t get caught up in all of it. Don’t search for validation from random strangers on the Internet (or from anyone, for that matter). And to the people who have been able to transform a simple app that millions of people have access to into a business for themselves…congratulations! Use your platform, share your voice! But don’t lose sight of what’s important. If you’re going to post things, post them for yourself or for the memories. Don’t post them for the likes/retweets/approval of others. This is also a reminder to myself…so the next time I second guess a filter or a caption or whether or not I can post two selfies in a row, I can remember that how other people perceive this photo isn’t what’s important. The number of likes or followers aren’t important. But it’s about being creative or sharing parts of your day with your friends and family (I’m making the assumption that your followers are automatically considered friends lol). So when you’re having these unique experiences, snap a pic, edit it, change the contrast, crop it, do whatever you want. But don’t let that hinder you from enjoying the moment. Don’t let getting the “perfect” shot stop you experiencing life. So let’s learn from Essena’s story. Maybe for you, it’s right to turn your phone off for an hour or two each day. Let’s remember that the numbers on a screen do not equate to having a “perfect” life.

a note about reposts

you’re probably looking at this title and thinking “leslie.. we’ve heard this speech like 87 times” and my friend i feel your pain, i do, and i’m questioning if this post will have much of an effect at all really, since reposts have just kind of become something that creators are expected to deal with on platforms like these. but that in itself is kinda messed up isn’t it? i know that a majority of people understand the importance of credit, but as someone who has been on this site and putting out content for ~1.5 years now, it wears you down a bit over time to see every edit you make spread across websites with no trace of who made it.

i could just keep saying don’t repost!! and hope people take my advice, but most of the people i come across are ones who find my edits and have no idea where they came from, so 1) understand that lack of knowledge of who originally made it doesn’t make it ok to post and 2) if you see someone post something that was clearly not made by them, don’t spread it

today my dan + nail polish edit spread all the heck over twitter through reposts, and normally it’d be something that i deal with and move on, but i started to think about recognition and the difficulty to have a big enough voice on platforms where you have less followers than the accounts reposting. on twitter, i have about 28 times less followers than i do here, and it gets increasingly frustrating when large accounts post your work with 3x the likes. i’ve become quite comfortable on tumblr, and the amount of reposts have decreased hugely for me from when i first started editing, but on twitter my circle of interaction is much smaller and not only results in lost credit, but also increased difficulty in finding those reposts. i guess my point for mentioning this is that if you see content being spread that seemingly came from nowhere, it’s because the original creator is being overshadowed by everyone else.

whenever i find a repost and ask them to take it down, specifically on twitter, i’ve had nothing but apologies and kind responses, which makes me realize that people don’t do it with bad intentions. they’re spreading my work because they think it’s worth sharing, and for that i am appreciative, but what they don’t realize is the erasure of the hours it took to get the coloring just right, or how much effort i put into the tiniest details. this is something that all creators face in the world of digital content, whether it’s gifs, art, edits, etc., and everyone deals with it in different ways. for me and many other people i know, reposts are seen as inevitable and not worth the effort of addressing obsessively, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be a constant discussion. support the creators you like by respecting what they make, and never take content for granted <3

thanks for reading lov u x

anonymous asked:

(Okay, because I'm a massive loser who doesn't know how to talk to people, I'm just gonna go ahead and say what I'm gonna say) So, 1) you're one of my favorite fanfiction authors on tumblr 2) I really want to write some high-quality ereris, but 3) I've never written fanfiction and I don't really know how it works, so I thought I'd come to you. Do you have any advice?

HIGH QUALITY ERERIS YOU SAY? I’m here for that nonnie!

I wrote a similar post before but I couldn’t find it oof, so sorry if this sound redundant to you. Alrighty let’s get this motherfucker bullet pointed!

  • The first rule of fanfiction is to have fun and be yourself. *cheesy grin* No but…seriously. People turn to fanfiction because there is something in the original storyline that they wanted to change. Everyone brings something to the table. You’re bringing your own personal history, your own insight, your own worldview to the story. So when you say that you “don’t really know how it works” well…there are no rules! The world is your oyster and you are the pearl. Write something fun. Write something beautiful. Write something ugly. If you want to write about platonic ereris feeding ducks, I guarantee you someone will want to read it. Hell, I want to read it. Someone write that please?
  • Don’t wait for someone to give you permission. If you want to write, do just that, WRITE. Just fucking write. There is no point waiting until you’re good enough to share your work. Write something. Finish it. You will only get better when you write. Writing is like a muscle, you gotta flex it.

  • Edit. For the love of god, please edit. And not just editing to fix typos or grammar, but editing to fix entire paragraphs and sentences. Edit for continuity, edit for characterization, edit to fill all 5 senses into a work so your audience is completely immersed.

  • Read. If you’re still stuck and you aren’t quite sure you’ve gotten the hang of this fanfiction thing, READ. Use your favorite fics as inspiration. What do you like in fics? Do you like how certain people use settings? Do you like their dialogue? The aura they cultivate? Use what strengths you find in another author to bolster your own strengths.

  • Fics: oneshots vs. chapter. Look, I’ll be real. Chapter fics get more play than oneshots. If you’re just writing oneshots, don’t be surprised people don’t seem to notice it as much when you’re first starting. But keep at it! And chapter fics don’t usually get much of an audience until you’ve progressed further into the storyline. But don’t let that stop you from writing either! Write a good few chapters into your fic (or even finish it!) so you don’t get burnt out and stressed after only 2-3 chapters. 

  • Post during peak hours. Look, I don’t know when peak hours are exactly, but you can’t just drop your first fic in the middle of the night and expect people to see it. I mean, maybe the Australians will see it, but try to aim for peak hours on Ao3 or tumblr. 

  • TAG! Tag if you have any stuff that can be triggering: character death, rape, dubcon, cutting, suicide, abuse, guns, knives, etc. But be careful of overtagging. Tag what is NEEDED to give your audience a good idea what to expect, but don’t overdo it with “Eren just thinks Levi is the cutest!” “Levi makes friends with a crab hahahaha” That stuff can be saved for your fic description. Also: I would read a fic on how Levi made friends with a crab.

  • WRITE A FIC DESCRIPTION! Don’t write “Bleh, I’m not good at these things.” No one is. No one likes writing the blurbs. It’s annoying and HARD. But for you to put so much effort into a work and then not have a fic description is undervaluing your work. Not writing a description is like decorating a beautiful interior, but not painting the chipped outside of your house.

  • Network. I use my tumblr as a way to interact with my favorite authors and artists and to fangirl about ereri and other anime crap. I keep my main blog separate. Mostly bc that blog just has a lot of cats. A lot of cats. But I use this blog to link to my fic. That way it doesn’t just feel like I’m jettisoning my fic into the emptiness of space on Ao3. Ao3 is great because you have an eager and willing audience, but it’s also frustrating because there are so SO many other fics. So use Tumblr, use Twitter. Writing by myself always felt…so fucking lonely. I always had all of these ideas and I would write them out but I never had anyone to share them with. It’s a heavy burden to have a work you really truly care about. It feels like you’re constantly carrying your ship to the shore by yourself. But when you connect with other writers and readers, it starts to feel much lighter. Unburden yourself my friendo. Talk to some people on here. It’ll help you. And you might make friends.

When it comes to High Quality Ereris™ stuff gets a little more complicated.

  • Avoid toxic tropes. Levi is not abusive, stop writing him as such. Eren is not a moe little crybaby, his cries are those of grief and anger. “Shitty brat” got old like two years ago. 
  • If you’re writing smut: CONSENT CONSENT CONSENT. Enthusiastic, verbal consent is fun! I get frustrated also in fics where people act like someone is a “good guy” for asking for consent. No. Consent isn’t a bonus, consent is mandatory. NORMALIZE CONSENT!
  • Be careful using too many tropes in a fic. Sure pastel!fairy!fireman!Eren sounds like fun, but it can be a little busy. You can’t substitute tropes for personality. You can’t substitute tropes for plot! So if you want to write pastel!fairy!fireman!Eren, fucking do that shit, but ask yourself, is the plot of the fic just in Eren’s pastel fairy wings and fireman outift? Is there anything more to his personality? Is there anything more to the story? See Kale’s excellent pickle post @skaletal .

And I have a lot more, nonnie, but this post is already very long. If others have input (and I know they do because I asked for help when writing this post) feel free to add! Come talk to me off anon on chat and we can have fun talking about fics! Happy Writing!~

Can I please have your opinion on this post (warning: stupidity): twelves-kidneys*dot*tumblr*dot*com/post/77503585593/things-that-make-me-want-to-set-myself-on-fire?

lol this is the post that kali was raging about earlier in my ask box like

if i could be bothered i could go down that list and argue each and every point with them, but i really don’t like confrontation lol, it’s not good for my mental health, especially when it is with someone who clearly isn’t going to have their mind changed, i do not see the point.

but like just cherry picking a few, i’ve already talked about how rose putting the doctor before the universe is a flat out lie, but to have that right after a point defending river song from the same accusation when she canonically held the universe HOSTAGE? oh my god. rose’s life doesn’t REVOLVE around him. it just doesn’t. wasn’t born to kill the doctor, she wasn’t brainwashed to be obsessed with him all her life, she didn’t die to save him, she didn’t stay in jail to protect him. she has a life outside of him in jackie, pete, mickey, mo, shareen, jimmy stone, howard, jericho street junior school etc. River’s life does revolve around him, she has no life outside of him.

‘glorifies ten and rose’ how can you glorify something which isn’t bad. that doesn’t make sense, the definition of glorify is ’represent as admirable, unjustifiably’. i think the word they are looking for is ‘like’.

anonymous asked:

I'm the same anon that asked for sources and after receiving zero from anyone (except for tumblr posts from haters) I find it hard to believe John Green is a bad person. I feel as though people really do hate John Green because he's been popular for too long. That is so, so stupid. PLEASE supply me with a source that doesn't come from tumblr.

ignoring the fact that you’re extremely biased, clearly devoted and stanning, and that fact that its super disrespectful to just dismiss the concerns of people just because they’re voicing those concerns on a different website than you’d like, I would first like to point out that what your selfish ass is doing is “make this one all about me! make it just for me so I don’t have to do any research on my own! I don’t wanna click thru blogs! I don’t care about people’s experiences!” anyways here it is.

on antisemitism: says “anne frank died of an illness like most people” completely ignoring the fact that she got ill because she was forced into a fucking concentration camp. the fucking holocaust is want caused anne frank to die. nazis and antisemitism killed anne frank. not fucking “illness, like most people” (http://bit.ly/1d9Wzkz)

on being friendly with rapists: a twitter post from one of john green’s twitter accounts (http://bit.ly/1BvMSbP) welcomes back eddplant of the band Chameleon Circuit, who is an admitted rapist (http://bit.ly/1iJw33m)

on liberal usage of the word “kafir” (google is your friend) and a garbage ass defense for it: repeatedly states that “you can’t attribute things my characters say to me” yikes! guess you didn’t write those books then, oops! he really should contact someone about his name being on books he had zero creative authority on and did not in any way control or create. [sorry, no source for that one! unless of course you can accept that tumblr has humans on it who say things that can be used as proof. (http://bit.ly/1RmECgg) (http://bit.ly/1eBkATc)]

on defending laci green’s racist, islamophobic video titled “Islam is sexist”: states in the same post of his above “I [have all these brownie points] so I don’t know why people are calling me islamophobic” when the issue is that he defended the actions of a vlogger who made an extremely bigoted video and it reached probably millions of people and maybe millions more by sharing and the magic of the internet. but it’s a little deeper than a blanket defense of the vlogger, as this tumblr post outlines. (http://bit.ly/1H3k4bk) (oh no! a tumblr post with feelings and experiences in it! almost like people exist and hang out in this big blue trashcan.)

on recent events: this post (http://i.imgur.com/6fPAZXx.jpg) says “john green is creepy and makes me uncomfortable in the same way creepy dads at pool parties make me uncomfortable” so john green responded in the most mature and eloquent way imaginable, by shouting “I don’t sexually abuse children you are slanderous and are trying to ruin my life” and then announces he’s gonna be less active on his blog.

like okay, john green isn’t a physically dangerous person, just a creepy middle-aged man with an unnecessarily large following of teenage girls who worship the ground he walks on. even IF HE WERE a pedophile like he thinks he’s being accused of, it wouldn’t matter because there are fans that are willing to defend him to the death! and it’s horrifying! (http://i.imgur.com/IFtqCJK.jpg)

in conclusion, anon, you’re selfish for wanting a personally tailored answer instead of just looking at the incredible abundance of evidence that is documented not by “haters” but by people he has affected and directly harmed with his bullshit. (and also “”“haters”“” too lmao who cares if people hate him he’s boring anyways) but i have a lot of free time this fine Sunday afternoon! so here it is because you very well could be a devoted child and I am very fucking horrified by the extent to which these young kids adore and defend him when he does wrong.

im not trying to get people to hate him, im trying to get yall to leave me the hell alooooone by supplying you with the same shit I’ve been linking for weeks!!

Hi, just letting you know I don't appreciate your absolutely ludicrous posts about me and my friends.

she s right. how do u feel about it?


I have never read something more ridiculous in my entire life. The ironic thing is these people talk about me and my friends and say that we’re ‘obsessed’ with them. Take a look in the mirror. We aren’t the people who sit on twitter and tumblr all day every single day coming up with these ludicrous theories about the boys and fans who meet them. We just go and see them when they’re around and we know which studios they’re at. I personally have never waited outside Harry’s house, waited for him at a restaurant or seen him at a hotel pool as stated in that post either - I see him and the other boys at studios and so on when they’re WORKING. Nobody in their team ‘tips us off’ and there is no fucking schedule/agenda about giving us information to meet them. I can’t even be bothered to say anything else but yeah, that is absolute bullshit hahaha but if you wanna believe it and that helps you sleep easier at night.. go ahead :)

Call-out for tumblr user broodyfenris and ccrutherford (formerly deshmund) on account of transphobia/misgendering/nb erasure.

Tumblr user broodyfenris (otherwise known as ranyamasaki, vaelsome and potentially more roleplay accounts) is transphobic. While being transgender himself, he believes transgender people’s pronouns are a right to be earned and dependant on how they look. A trans man who will wear a dress is not a man to him, a DFAB non-binary person who doesn’t want to be called by female pronouns is still a ‘queen’, a 'bitch’, a 'woman’ and should be referred to with 'she’ pronouns because of their genitalia.

His friend, deshmund, now ccrutherford, agrees with this sentiment, going as far as to publicly call the same person a 'girl’, backing herself as a cis woman that isn’t transphobic by saying that 'she has transgender friends’, despite considering pronouns a privilege depending on how nice you are to her.

They have has since screened off their Twitter account to be fully capable of misgendering said non-binary person (ergo me) without it being publicized. Screencaps come from prior to this screening.

Here’s the lomadia call out post thing with links, feel free to add to it because a) Im pretty ill at the moment so it might not be as eloquent as it could be and b) I no longer follow hannah on tumblr, twitter, or youtube so I may have missed a lot of things. Also, this is only recent-ish stuff. I feel that it’s important to be aware of what she has done in the past.

under read more because I feel like it may get quite long winded

anonymous asked:

are you gonna post your opinion on that post that your friend found on twitter

yes okay omfg i totally forgot okay i’ll post it now

original / aka what we’re talking about / 

thanks for all your opinions by the way, i read through them all and yeah i was really proud of you guys for not blowing it out of proportion like some normally do, i just wanted you to comment on the post and not make a big thing about it, and you did that and i was v happy so thank you!

ok opinion time.

the way i look at it, is this. if i posted a photo with my guy-friend on tumblr, no one would /really/ care. but since girls are posting photos with luke, calum, michael or/and ashton, people instantly care and have to know what’s going on/how they know each other/are they hooking up/ stupid stuff. i don’t think 5sos have ever said that they would go for a natural no make up girl, let’s be real here, 90% of teenage girls wear make up. they aren’t going to like you because you’re not wearing make up, same with  they’re not going to like you if you’re wearing make up. they go for all girls, believe me. if you have boobs, you’re half way there. 5sos have always said, be yourself, and don’t ever let anyone change you. they’re not going to pull a Nash Grier and say ontop of that, ‘but don’t be a cake-face snobby bitch blah blah whatever' 

'the fucked up fanfics’ part was stupid. i personally don’t read fanfics / one shots or whatever you want to call them because they do give you a false impression of what the people are really like. you should have your own imagination and make up your own mind on what you think they’re like. just because a fanfic says that ashton is the sweetest person on the earth and he’s going to run infront of a bus to save your life, doesn’t mean he actually would. it’s just someone’s impression of them, which everyone is entitled to, but they give you false hope and sometimes it is a let down when you meet someone that is talked up about how amazing they are, to realise they’re not everything that oneshot once said. 

Some fans do act like herds of sheep tbh. once something happens, everyone jumps to it and tries to find out so much information, kinda like a bandwagon. like if 5sos said they liked a band, fans would obviously follow  through with it, and try and look into the band as well, just so they have 'some what’ of a connection with 5sos because you both like the same band and 5sos helped introduce you to such an amazing band and probably a new music genre which is perfectly fine and amazing and i think it’s wonderful how music brings people together, but it can be see as bandwagon or 'herd of sheep’, it’s whatever way you want to look at it.

some fans have this false hope that 5sos are going to see them in the distance at an airport and think omfg i want to get to know that girl, which brings me back to the fanfics thing, it gives you a false hope that you’re going to be THAT girl that the boys fall inlove with. which 9999.99999% of the time wont be true. and it’s a harsh reality and im not trying to crush anyone’s dreams of dating a band member but the chances slight to nill and the sooner people come to realise that, the better tbh. you’re not wasting your time drooling over these boys with your false hope, like who knows, maybe you could be that lucky girl but it’s really not that big of a chance these days. 

i think people forget that 5sos are teenage boys. they go for whatever girl that catches their eye. just because they’re in the spotlight and have a little more recognition doesn’t mean they’re set their 'standards higher’ and only go for famous girls now. you don’t have to compete with these 'famous & perfect looking girls’ because we’re all the same. some might have a flatter stomach or whiter teeth or straighter her but at the end of the day, we’re all human. we’re all the same. 

all people are seeing right now is 5sos hanging out with 'youtube’ girls or 'famous girls’ when in reality. those girls were nothing 3 years ago. they were teenage girls who had dreams of being on youtube, making videos to make people happy. they were nobodies. and now they’re 'youtube famous’ i dont think people realise that they work so damn hard to be where they are today. and since they hung out with your idols they’re being called sluts and whores and slut shaming them and wow they are literally people just like you and me, just a few more people know about them. and it’s the same with 5sos, they’re teenage boys.  and you see, people are always looking to blame someone, if it were the other way round and you were hanging out with them, and being called a whore just for inviting them to a party because they were in town and they’re your friends, it’d hurt you. wouldn’t it? then why are you doing it to other people. it would be different if it was you, you’d be happy as, but since it’s someone else. yeah nah.

you are good enough for 5sos. but it’s the false belief of fan fictions that drive people to think that they’re going to be 'the lucky one’ that gets noticed and then when it finally gets to the reality, they realise they’re just another fan and it breaks their heart and crushes their dreams. girls need to realise that you’re here to support the band, not date or fuck the boys. and if that’s all you’re here for.. to get noticed by them and hopefully get their number, then please..  leave. we’re here for the music, not to invade their personal lives and try and get with our idols. 

ok i think i rest my case xx

IN 2 DAYS (February 6th) it is Dane’s birthday (!!!!) so I thought of something really incredible to do for him! I would be making a video compilation of greetings/artworks/drawings made by us, the fans, for him from all over the world.

you could either send:
-video/s of yourself (or with a group of people so it would be more fun!) greeting, singing or dancing for dane. (If doing it by groups please include where you’re from, like “hello dane we’re your fans from *insert country/place* greeting you a happy birthday!!!” Or something like that)
-fan art/doodles
-photos
-letters!!!
-anything you want (make sure appropriate)
-and of course, love for dane

You can send them to ddehaanproject@yahoo.com on or before 5th of February*. Make sure to include your name, tumblr URL/twitter and where you’re from.

I will be sending the link via the email you used to send me your output once I’ve uploaded the video or I could just post the link here so make sure you’re tracking #ddehaanproject (or follow me). If you have any questions, my ask box is always open.

It would be really great if we could get fans from all over the world so dane could acknowledge each and everyone! And for us, Dane’s fandom, to have more friends all over the world!

(also, thanks to my friend eyebagdehaan who made this project possible!!!)

anonymous asked:

I am working on a memoir under a pen name, about an abusive relationship with my mother. I also want to include how her abuse affected my other relationships and self worth within them. One of which was with a narcissist. I'm fearful of him and am wondering if perhaps I shouldn't even mention him. How would I go about this? Also have you any tips on how to build a platform and get readers interested in my material? *My mom doesn't read English well so I'm not worried about her reading my memoir.

There’s some general advice on memoirs here.

For hiding/protecting your identity and other people’s identities:

  • Change Names: When you change the names, really change them. Don’t keep the initials the same, don’t use similar sounding names, and don’t only change the surname. You can even neglect to use surnames at all.
  • Change Locations: Changing the locations will change other details as well, but I’ll get to that later. If something happened at a grocery store, change it to a clothing store or a bookstore. The overall story is the same, but changing smaller details can help deviate from the absolute truth.
  • Change People: If you’re fearful of this one particular person, you can change your relationship with him. You can make him a teacher or a neighbor or a family member and still work in parts of your relationship with him. You’ll have to change a lot of details, but you can still make it work. You should also change or leave out specific details, such as tattoos, physical appearance, scars, etc.
  • Change Details: You’ll probably have to change other small details, which happens in most memoirs. Certain events in your memoir might happen in different places, might happen at a different time, might involve different people, might involve different objects, or might last longer/shorter.

Here are some tips to build a platform:

  • Blog: Start a blog. Make it relevant to your memoir. Talk about some of the stuff that might be in your memoir. Some bloggers even get book contracts for non fiction books due to their blogs. You can also move to twitter and get involved with discussions on there. If your twitter profile has your blog or website link on it, you’ll get more traffic. 
  • Find Your Audience: Your audience will probably be people who have been in similar situations as yourself, as well as their friends and family. Find them on the internet. Look around on places like experienceproject, twitter, tumblr, and other social networking sites. Reach out to some of them and tell them to check out your blog. Some of them might even be able to do a guest post and you might be able to do a guest post on someone else’s blog.
  • Speaking: This can be nerve wracking for a lot of people, especially those who might be putting themselves at risk if they make themselves known, but it’s an excellent way to reach out to people. Speaking about abusive relationships can be to a large audience (a school) or smaller audiences (a classroom, a support group, a club, etc.). If you do it enough, you can build up a reputation and thus a platform.
  • Newsletter: From your blog, set up a monthly newsletter to keep in touch. Some people might be away for a while only to forget about your blog or website. The newsletter acts as a reminder and it can also be used to give big news.

anonymous asked:

How come you're one of the few people on Twitter that doesn't hate Kent? I just don't get it? We've only gotten a flash of Kent. And sure he wasn't exactly nice in that small bit but we don't know anything. There could be a whole other side to him. Idk I'm just sad that people dislike him so much.

Kent is a very hard subject to talk about, and “he wasn’t exactly nice” is a bit of an understatement. Personally, I don’t really have an opinion on Kent anymore other than how he acted during the kegster was completely unacceptable. His actions drove Jack to a panic attack, he knew exactly what he was doing. He was upset and wanted Jack to be upset like he was, probably. 

I’d love more information about Kent, I want more information about his and Jack’s past relationship, how he handled Jack’s O.D. and going into the NHL and becoming a hockey star without the guy he considered his best friend. We just don’t have enough information about the character, so I don’t know if this was normal or Kent acting out because he was upset (either way, it wasn’t right for him to come at Jack in a place he probably considered safe, and continue to badger him about his career, and then mention Bad Bob when he knows that Jack has issues concerning his father’s legacy and where he fits into it, and how it plays into his anxiety).

But the thing is, I completely understand why people don’t like Kent. I understand why they don’t want to see him on their dashboard or their timeline’s.They can easily see Kent in their abusers, or in someone’s abuser when we first read his interaction with Jack, or they just plain don’t like him. There will be comics that have characters that just aren’t liked sometimes.

I’ll probably lose friends, but I admit that I used to like Kent and bittyparse because I liked the idea of the two going from hating each other to liking, and then love, because I’m in love with love and just want things to be happy always. I started seeing more and more posts on my dash about Kent, and why people don’t like him, and it made sense as to why people in the fandom are uncomfortable with Kent and ships that included him. I started posting less about him, I stopped making posts about it and liking/retweeting on Twitter because I didn’t want my followers to get uncomfortable. They followed me because they liked the content they’ve seen, and I felt bad that I was posting about Kent when it was making them and other’s uncomfortable. It wasn’t fair to them.

I get what you mean though, it is sad to see all the hate on a character that Ngozi worked hard on. But, to me at least, it’s justifiable. How some people act towards people who like Kent isn’t justifiable though, it’s awful(death threats are never okay guys, the block button/blacklist/tumblr savior is your friend). 

Gender Doesn't Matter

Why should it matter?

Why should anyone, regardless of gender, race, sexual preference, religion, etc. be placed and categorized? Much less be trapped in endless stereotypical jokes all their lives, simply because of sheer ignorance? 

In a perfect world, we would have equality and complete tolerance. Imagine being able to drive down the street and not having to worry about being pulled over because of typical bad profiling. Where you could go to a party and not listen to everyone speaking broken English to the Asian couple because they think it’s “OK’ because they’re friends. Saying you’re Catholic and not hear about another child molestation quip, let alone an Atheist judging you across the room.

Sadly, we’re still living in a world without equality, let alone respect.

Judging 

All my life, I just wanted to be treated equally as any other person with a beating heart. To send off my portfolio and resume without using a pen-name so it doesn’t get tossed out.

I just wanted to draw and entertain people through Tumblr, yet for some reason, everyone wants to know my gender. For what reason? Honestly, why is it so important that some people on the internet had to even de-rail an entire post on Reddit speculating on my gender and my sexual preferences?

What difference does it make with the piece of art in front of them? 

My gender shouldn’t change their opinion of the art or any of my work or the works of other artists.

Yet, it does maybe for some closure to assign a stereotype and judge me.

Would it make them more comfortable to masturbate to my drawings if I was a girl? Would it bring closure to all the cooking of food recipes I made myself because gender stereotypes dictate women usually cook? Or maybe I’m just another fake gamer girl attracting notoriety and attention? 

Of if I was a guy, maybe I’m a flaming homosexual because gender norms dictate pink is a girl’s color let alone the love for musicals? That my preference in men, women and body types clearly say I’m a confused transgendered with weight problems?

I’ve got a great sense of humor, but maybe that’s part of the problem. When someone tells the same stereotype joke over and over again. Instead of smiling and laughing so we don’t look like humorless dicks, maybe we should actually say something.

What a concept. 

Media & Satire 

I’m sure almost any movie goer can agree that it’s a travesty to see a Michael Bay film racking up millions after millions based on punchlines and jokes centered around reinforced stereotypes. Feel free to count all the racial stereotypes in all four Transformers films. While I realize this is a popcorn movie franchise, Michael Bay isn’t doing any favors to these ethnic and minority groups. 

These films reach a pretty big audience. Believe it or not, there’s an entire world beyond the people you encounter on the internet. Each of these people and more importantly, children are subjected to countless stereotypes in these films. If the original Star Wars trilogy could entertain millions of children, I’m sure you could drop the Black jokes here and there.

This is why it’s nice to have Gran Theft Auto and Saturday Night Live to a certain extent. They’re basically making a social commentary on just how screwed up our society has become. Not saying every aspect of their execution is perfect, but you have to admit, it’s pretty eff’d up when it’s so on point with everything wrong in our society. 

Portlandia is another great example of satire in our generation. Anyone living in Portland will usually chuckle at how true things are, but for everyone not from Portland, the jokes get lost in translation. 

I’m sure this was one of the reasons why David Chappelle stopped his own show during the mid-2000s. Stupid and ignorant people stopped viewing his show as a satire and actually told stereotypical jokes as though as it was OK. That it was OK to make fun of minority groups because a celebrity did it first.

I guess that’s the problem with satire. Once it becomes popular, the wrong people misinterpret it. Often the uneducated.

Say Something

What I want people to take away from all this is to say something. Don’t just laugh at a bad joke you’ve listened to for the past 21-years of your life.

It’s not OK when your friend’s making fun at the transgender at the bar.

It’s not OK to tell your girlfriend to go make you a sandwich in front of your friends, hoping for a laugh.

It’s not OK to tell someone a blonde joke thinking it’s their first time hearing it.

Stereotypes aren’t funny, let alone placing and judging people based on said stereotypes. Satires open up dialog and conversation for such issues. If done properly, it criticizes people’s stupidity, yet these same stupid people misinterpret the message and makes it worst.

Instead of labeling people and judging people based on stereotypes, we should be focusing on their work and actions.

The best thing to do is to teach people and especially children, the importance of respect for other minority groups and equality for all.

Regardless of gender. 

Maybe someday, your child won’t have to live in the same screwed up world you live in now.
