new-vision

We see movies in which people are represented as being in love who never talk with one another, who fall into bed without ever discussing their bodies, their sexual needs, their likes and dislikes. Indeed, the message received from the mass media is that knowledge makes love less compelling; that it is ignorance that gives love its erotic and transgressive edge. These messages are often brought to us by profiteering producers who have no clue about the art of loving, who substitute their mystified visions because they do not really know how to genuinely portray loving interaction.

d&d disability mechanics

so im disabled, and i have a disabled d&d character. i didnt like not having an in-game mechanic to express my character’s disability in more than words, so i decided to make some and then ended up making others.

a lot of these were made while consulting someone who has the disability or from my own firsthand experience, but some aren’t. if you want to critique some of my choices, message me! i’ll be able to either edit the ruleset or explain my reasoning, and i want it to be the best it can be.

note: a lot of the save DCs are left vague in this so you and your DM can determine how difficult they are to meet.

this is under a cut because it’s really long and so i can update it. if you want to see something added, message me!

Doctor Who Moves Into the Future with Jodie Whittaker

The BBC announced today that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the next Doctor, the first woman to ever play the role!

As I write this I’m literally crying and shaking. I’m beyond happy – I’m ecstatic.

This is an exciting and very welcome move by Chris Chibnall and the BBC. Jodie Whittaker is an incredibly talented actor who previously stared in Black Mirror and Broadchurch. I know she’ll bring a new and fresh vision to the role. And it is incredibly encouraging that Chibnall and the BBC took this step to reinvigorate the character and the show. They’ve given us a peek at their new, exciting vision of what Doctor Who can be, and I’m so here for it. Each regeneration has arrived with a celebration of the show’s ability to grow and change. This time, it rings a little more true.

We also cannot overlook what an important moment this is for all the women and young girls who watch and adore Doctor Who. Young girls will finally get to see themselves as the hero of the story, an all too rare moment when most movies and TV shows – especially in science fiction – star men. Even young boys will benefit from being able to look up to a woman as their role model.

I have been hoping and arguing and fighting for this change for years, and I’m just so unbelievably happy that it’s finally happened. I’m so happy that Chibnall and the BBC were willing to take this leap. I’m so happy that I’ll get to see Jodie Whittaker step out of those TARDIS doors. And I’m so happy for all the girls who will get to see her take the TARDIS controls and take us on new and exciting adventures.

So let’s get out there and celebrate. Let’s show the world how thrilled the fandom really is. And let’s get ready to fight the trolls with everything we have to defend Jodie. This is our moment, and we’re going to enjoy it to the fullest!

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: during 'man up' from the book of mormon 2011, elder price sings "heavenly father why do you let bad things happen, more to the point, why do you let bad things happen to me? i'm sure you don't think i'm a flake because you clearly made a mistake!" and immediately the elders pop up singing 'turn it off', a song about bottling up the feelings that were not okay for a mormon to feel, a song starred by elder mckinley, a man that confesses to have 'gay thoughts' since he was in fifth grade but claims they have passed now, at the end of the musical, mckinley decides to finally 'turn his feelings on' and beat his internalised homophobia after a new vision of religion, but most importantly, why did they choose to reference 'turn it off' when kevin price is convinced god made a mistake with him? is he suggesting there are something Wrong with him apart from leaving his companion alone? maybe not, but then why elder mckinley has a place in price's 'spooky mormon hell dream', a scene that represents all the sins price has committed through the years? does thi-

Disney Channel could not have done that any better tonight! History has been made today and tomorrow is to a new future where children can grow up in a world where they shouldn’t be ashamed of who they like ✌🏻🌈

Now children growing up like Cyrus will not feel alone anymore! I am happy to say that if Disney can teach children these values and importance of respect and equality of love for everyone that those with hate in their hearts can too. Today marked a new vision of love and equality in television and in children’s lives everywhere.

Wish I had something like this growing up !

Just amazing and beautiful…
