I’m fucking angry!
I’m angry at this SL, I’m angry at this break up. I’m angry that the witch hasn’t taken any responsibility, I’m angry that ED keeps trying to make her out to be a saint when she definitely is not. I’m angry that Adam will suddenly become best mate of the year while trying to shut Robert out. I’m angry that Vic is so baby obsessed she can’t see her own brother falling apart until it happens, (it’s like she cares more about the woman who played a massive part in breaking her brother and best mate up more than anything else just because it’s a baby.) I’m angry at the lack of interest Diane has in Robert. I’m angry that as soon as Chas and Liv return, they’ll be on Robert’s back and treating him like shit (which will probably result in the rest of the Dingle’s getting involved) I’m angry that Paddy will probably jump on the band wagon as well. (I wouldn’t of minded so much had they been there when it first came out.) I’m angry that Robert will most probably get kicked out of the mill when Aaron returns. I’m angry that no one is questioning the paternity of this baby. (Apart from Robert. Which was probably a fly away comment to never be mentioned again.) I’m angry that the witch has clearly been trying to get Robert From the second she stepped off that helicopter, (what were her words? “I didn’t think you’d be quite so taken.” Or something along those lines.) I’m angry that ED continually shove the witch in scenes with Robert (at this point, it’s almost like it’s just for laughs, it’s that ridiculous!) I’m fucking angry at Emmerdale for throwing this shit storm of a SL in our faces when they could of chosen a much better route to go down. I’m angry that Robert doesn’t ever seem to get his own SL. (Seriously, he deserves more than anyone to have a centric SL.) I’m angry that I can’t see a reunion happening anytime soon. I’m angry that I’m in so deep I couldn’t give Robron up If I tried. All in all I’m fucking angry (basically anytime I think of this crap) because of a cheap, overused SL that never ever should of even made it on paper in the first place.
Of course it’s okay to dislike a bully. Of course of course of course. No one’s saying you have to forgive Bakugou and what he did to Midoriya should never be brushed over or forgotten bc no matter how young he was and how many adults enabled him he’s still responsible for his own actions. Midoriya never ever has to forgive him for it and neither do we.
HOWEVER. If you are saying that Bakugou should have no friends when his friends are helping him become a better person and have a mutually beneficial relationship with him. If you are saying he should be punished more when he has suffered the most trauma in the series from villains and we’ve seen the horrific effects on his mental health. If you are saying that the students in 1A are shit for still liking him even though he bullied Midoriya relentlessly when they don’t fucking know he did that. If you are saying that as a four year old he should have known better than to behave in a way he was praised and told he was amazing for.
You’re not getting it.
Let people redeem themselves. Let children and teens redeem themselves. Bakugou having a redemption arc isn’t the same as an abuser like Endeavour getting a redemption arc and showing abusers can change. It isn’t the same thing.
Bullies can get redemption and it not diminish what they did or the effects of what they did. Bullies can become good people and it not erase that they were bullies and treated people terribly in the past. Bullies can have friends and become better and not be forgiven by their fucking victims. Okay?
Wanting a 16 year old to be fucking tortured and beaten down even more than he already is in this series is just malicious. He won’t learn like that. He didn’t learn like that. He’s learning from the environment he’s in and from his new peers and teachers. Decade old habits ingrained in him for probably as long as he can remember aren’t gonna be broken in a day. That’s just how it is.
Criticising situations that are helping him change and improve (i.e. spending time with friends who he treats as equals and will call him out on shitty behaviour) only shows you don’t want him to learn and change rather than you worrying about the welfare of a character because they’re hanging out with…their friend. He wouldn’t have got to the point he is today with Midoriya without all the experiences he’s had at UA especially the time he’s spent with his classmates. He can and will become a decent person and as long as he does that at a relative distance to Midoriya I really don’t see the problem.
TL;DR: You can dislike Bakugou and not wish him into horrible situations that will prevent him from growing and becoming a better person.
So I just got attacked for saying Otayuri was my otp??? Like lmao. Why is it so wrong? Tell me that. Sure, Yuri is “only 16” and Otobek is what, 20? (Edit n2: Otabek is 18-19). Lmao. Keith is 16 or whatevs and Shiro is like 23 or smthn and people still ship them. EREN JAEGAR is 16 and fucking LEVI is 32 or some shit (edit: I forgot Abt the time skips in the manga that make eren older now but still). Otayuri’s age gap is FOUR YEARS (give or take). Why the hell. Is it wrong to ship them. And I don’t ship them sexually (tbh I hate seeing nsfw of them), but like, platonic love with cute cuddles and kisses and just a platonic boyfriend relationship? YES. Give it fucking ALL to me. Don’t attack me because of my ship thanks. ESPECIALLY since there are sO many other ships that the “age gap” is fucking worse lol.
Hi @madsrocketship, while you think your argument is solid - it actually contradicts many simple facts. You claim that Taylor Swift never does anything to further women other than herself by using feminism as her “brand,” and yet…
She donated $250,000 to Kesha to help in her with legal fees against her abuser.
She has donated tons of money to Louisiana flood relief, including $100,00 to an organization that supports struggling single moms.
She was sexually assaulted by a radio host, and is suing him - and ALL the profits from her case will be donated to women’s causes and charities.
Throughout the years she has donated to women’s shelters and other causes that support women.
And ALL OF THAT was done without a peep from Taylor herself. You claim that she uses feminism as a part of her personal brand only to further her career and her profits, but you fail to see what’s happening behind the scenes. You fail to realize that Tweeting #ImWithHer is a small, nearly negligible way to promote feminism, whereas donating money to real causes and real people is a tangible way to support women everywhere, other than herself.
GUYS i really don’t know how to feel about scalia. I mean i love Scott and Malia so so so much and all i want for them is pure happiness and joy and PEACE. But i also love and stan kira so hard?? and i can’t stand to see Scott making out with someone else when we haven’t even got any closure for Scira??? i mean he HAS HER TAIL. THE SYMBOL OF HER IMMORTALITY. and yet the writers didn’t even bother to bring her back for her endgame with scott or even probably mention her at all. I’m so conflicted and I feel so cheated because first Scott lost Allison and now Kira and I feel like the writers putting Scalia together was just a last minute decision because they wanted him to have a love interest but they didn’t have the time to introduce a new character and build up a relationship from scratch. so they just stuck those two together. And don’t get me wrong their makeout scene was SO HOT and THEY ARE SO HOT and i really truly wanna let myself ship them but i feel so bad?? idk this just sucks. Also now its like every one (scott malia lydia and stiles) has made out with everyone on the show and im kinda getting gossip girl vibes. UGH. WHY CANT THE WRITERS JUST DO SOMETHING RIGHT FOR ONCE. HOW HARD WOULD IT HAVE BEEN TO BRING KIRA BACK. YOU BROUGHT ETHAN JACKSON DEREK GERARD AND FRIKEN KATE BACK. WHY NOT KIRA????please tell me what you guys think about all this cuz i’m very lost
I’m so tired of everything that revolves around gay guys being about sex!! not every mlm interactions are sexual! there are old gay couples who water flowers together, there are preteen gay boys who hold hands after class, there are teenage gay couples who play video games together, there are ace gay couples who don’t like to go past kissing. not every single thing we do is sexual
Just keep in that we have five (six for some) more days till the next episode of Shadowhunters and we very well may get more Malec than the latest episode gave us. On top of that Matt said we delve deeper into the characters and their fears. And that one scene in the promo? With Alec standing on the roof ledge? We may very well get a touching scene between Alec and Magnus. Because who else has been in that same position as Alec? Magnus. On Blackfriars bridge just a little over a century or so ago. The sex thing will also be addressed next episode as well. Did they or did they not have sex? We’ll have to wait a little longer for complete conformation. If they did and they don’t show at least the morning after? Yeah I’m gonna be pissed. If they didn’t and Magnus stopped it? Yes I’ll be satisfied just as much as I will be if they show the morning after and communication. Malec is still the healthiest LGBT relationship I’ve seen on TV my entire life. I’m not saying get your hopes up but I am saying keep an open mind like me. Yes they could’ve definitely handled it differently but i don’t believe it was their intention to be homophobic or push Malec aside just to get views. Look at what they’ve done with Malec so far? I think both the writers and the showrunners deserve a little more faith from us. I’m not defending god no. Malec deserves better and they made a mistake, a big one. They should own up to it and just give us clear answers. They might be too embarrassed or they might intentionally be vague like they are because it’s gonna be addressed next Monday and they don’t wanna spoil it. So please, please be more patient? Be a little more open minded? I’m not saying get your hopes up, I’m not, just please wait and be patient and see where next week takes us. And PLEASE NO MORE HATE TOWARDS THE WRITERS AND SHOWRUNNERS. It’s one thing to voice your concerns, it’s another to be mean and bully them. We’re better than this guys please I don’t wanna see us fall from our hypothetical throne. We’re so much better than this, we still are!!! I refuse to see us become mean and unhealthy and unkind like I’ve seen most fandoms become. We most definitely are NOT THE BOOK FANDOM. The writers and Showrunners of Shadowhunters ARE NOT CC. Please don’t make them out to be and don’t stoop to her level.
Okay. Now that my rants over I can relax. Keep this in mind my loves. We’ll see what happens next week.

So im here about the bee ask u answered!the thing is when u said that beekepers treat the bees well,it doesnt rlly matter to vegans bc veganism is about not exploiting animals,basically they are their own so we dont have the right to use them even if we"treat them well"so about my question do u have any reliable source about honey?cause vegans are rlly passionate about it but as a vegan myself&a rlly passionate one ive never found any reliable info&i just want the good info to do whats right !
I understand veganism as not using any animal products and that’s fine. My issue is the word “exploiting.” Mainly because it really reveals how little vegans know about animal production industries and how important and beneficial they are both to humans and animals.
Domesticated animals have been changed by humans due to humans and something called artificial selection. Human’s have purposely bred animals for certain characteristics we want to see in these animals and therefore are GMO’s (genetically modified organisms). For example sheep producing that extent of wool that doesn’t
shed. Or bees that can make large quantities of honey or polled cows, or every dog breed. This is also true for pretty much every vegetable and fruit we eat today. Carrots never used to be orange, banana’s had seeds and tasted completely different, it goes on and on.
Because of this, domesticated animals like bees, cows, dogs, cats cannot just simply
we can’t stop shearing sheep because a bunch of people think we’re “exploiting” them. The sheep will die or end up looking like this:
Shrek the sheep that escaped his paddock and went missing for 6 years.
The environment that we know it today has been shaped by us and by the animals we’ve domesticated (in both good and bad ways).
Vegan’s fail to see the bigger picture. They focus on individual animals or species instead of acknowledging or thinking about the impacts it would have if meat stopped being produced, or wool, or honey or diary products. Without all these processes the environment and biodiversity would be drastically changed for the worse. We’d lose important native and wild key species for a few domesticated animals. And that’s not even going onto the cultural or health effects on humans, especially those in poorer exploited countries.
Okay so now with my little rant over my advice for finding good information:
First don’t use any vegan websites. They are bias. They are unscientific.
Use scientific based information (for this you can use something called google scholar it works like google for scientific articles / journals (though alot of them you’ll need to buy which is bullshit. Scientific information should be free for all)
Websites that end in .org are usually reliable
information from the source itself is good aka. asking farmers, bee keepers, biologists first hand experience is always good. They are experts after all (and alot of them have youtube or websites)
books are also a good way to go, but check who the author is and who is publishing the book. (you can find alot of books of bee keeping / bees by biologists + bee keepers)
