Why it is unarguably wrong to write porn/smut/18+ material about a minor:

  • It is taking advantage of them.
  • It promotes pedophilia.
  • It encourages young kids to think it is harmless to do these things when they can actually get seriously hurt/get kidnapped/get killed/or become involved in an abusive relationship.
  • It promotes rape culture and unhealthy relationships.
  • It can make them feel unsafe, dirty, and uncomfortable in their own skin.

I’m not saying this to be “hateful” or “bossy,” nor do I think I am these kid’s parent. I am not saying this because of selective morals either. I am saying this because this has proven to have lifelong physical and psychological damage to children all around the world and no one should EVER promote this or let it slide.

Child porn is NOT OKAY and NEVER will be because what it does to people will NEVER CHANGE.

Do not support child porn nor create it. That’s final.

Oh btw, I found the manga’s elusive writing flaw: Ed’s arm gets damaged all the time but literally nothing has ever happened to his leg. We get the one bit after the Scar fight where it needed to be adjusted for height, and of course there’s the change to the northern automail, but it somehow miraculously never gets a scratch on it even though his arm explodes at the slightest touch

J,

For the entire time I’ve known you, you have been a light in the dark for me. You were there when I needed a friend. Our dynamic has changed more times than the weather where we live. We’ve shared so much of our lives with one another. Now that we’re finally finally together, I’ve spent every day feeling even more lucky to call you mine. Going forward there are some things you should know.

1. I will never ever admit how much I talk about, think about, or do things for your benefit. I will play it off as if I did things spontaneously when in fact I get my hopes up for and meticulously plan for things. 

2. Of course as much as I want to constantly be in contact with you and see you and talk to you, I will not expect you to constantly appease me. You have a life too and need to spend time with your friends just as much as you need to spend time with me. There will be times where I’m selfish and will want you all to myself, but for the most part, I understand how important your friends are to you.

3. I will be understanding to a fault, please don’t abuse this.

4. There will be times when I am unnecessarily upset or angry. If this happens, know I care about you and I need time to sort things out in my head. Sometimes I will overthink and create problems that don’t exist, deep down I know this, so again, I need time.

5. I know the distance will be difficult but please know you and only you have my heart and I’m trusting it will be the same on your end. I am willing to go to great lengths to make our relationship work because I care for you so much. We can do this, babe, I know we can.

I don’t think I’ve ever changed a person’s opinion on this site.

But I don’t take it hard, I’m pretty sure no one on this site has ever done that.

Also…. Steve hesitated when the interviewer yesterday called Louis, “Louis Tomlinson of One Direction.” Steve was hesitant to say the words “1D” and actually, I don’t think he ever did??? The interviewer did. Why? I mean. Hopefully it means they’ve changed their name, am i right ladies, lol. But seriously, it’s not like Steve is shy about bringing on a boybander to work with him? He’s always talking about traversing genres to find talent that works well with his, and has mentioned he’s a 1D fan, even on the JHO promo tour if i recall correctly, so it’s not like he got to Ultra™ and suddenly got nervous. 

So uhhhh. What up with that?

I keep seeing these posts about how sad or upsetting it is to see CHILDREN who identify as ace. So this is a friendly reminder to all my ace minors who may need to hear it today.

1. You are NOT sad, and no one has a right to be upset by your identity.
2. You do not need to explain, to an adult person or anyone else, what you consider sexual attraction, or why you think you are not experiencing it. No one has the right to ask you to question your own identity.
3. You do not need to listen to anyone trying to convince you you are probably more gay or more straight, or anyone trying to change the way you identify in any other way.
4. Asexuality is not about whether you have had or are having sex. If you self-identify as asexual, that is not you sexualizing yourself, and you are not harming yourself by taking on a label that MIGHT change in the future. and don’t ever let anyone convince you otherwise. 
5. You are not required to keep an open mind that your orientation may change. It MIGHT change, and if it does, i hope you can welcome and enjoy whatever you are feeling when it arrives. But you aren’t required to participate in the rituals of dating, crushes, or experimenting just to prove that it’s really NOT what you want. 

I am a firm believer in self-exploration, and obtaining self-knowledge through questioning what we know about ourselves, and the world. But the way ace kids are constantly expected to provide answers for how we are the way we are, and what it means, and how we’re really really open to being something else, is just disgusting. It does more to turn kids AWAY from relabeling or reexamining themselves.

If you’re a minor, and you ID as ace, then you’re ace. You’re not broken, or alone, you’re not wrong, and you don’t need to answer for it.

and some will break you, some will destroy you, and some will even end you. and still you will love the next as if you’ve never been hurt. and that’s what makes you, you, despite the bullshit people bring, you smile as if nothing has ever happened…and that’s why I love you and I hope you never change, not for no one, not even me.

What i learned from my psych teacher today:

 Loving someone shouldn’t hurt. But falling in love isn’t easy either, after a while it becomes something you’ll have to choose to be committed to and that makes it beautiful.  What happens after you tell someone you love them is what matters most; does silence follow? Do they say it back?  There’s no easy way to love, you will go through rough patches, but loving them shouldn’t hurt. Love should be a two way street, if they don’t put in the effort you do, and you’re not happy, leave. You deserve someone who makes you feel like you’re easy to love. It shouldn’t make you feel like your heart can’t do it anymore. Wait for the person who won’t break your heart. You’ll find them, i promise. Save your best words for them. Look forward to loving them through their best and worst. Wait for the person who makes waking up in the morning not a chore. Wait for someone you kiss goodnight and open your eyes to every morning. Wait for the day you won’t be scared they’ll leave. Wait for them. It’ll be worth it. 

He is a CIVILIAN!!!!! TONY STARK /IS/A/CIVILIAN/ AND HE WAS(IS) EXPOSED TO SUCH HORRIFIC THINGS IT’S FUCKING ME UPP

1)has to watch as four soldiers get shot whilst escorting him
2) is blown up
3) has to undergo open heart surgery whilst conscious
4) wakes up to discover someone has inserted something so incredibly intrusive and life-changing into his chest without his permission.
5) is tortured
6) discovers the person responsible for this is one of the only people he has ever trusted

AND THAT IS JUST IRON MAN 1!!!!! THE F I R S T FILM IN THE TRAINWRECK THAT IS HIS LIFE LIKE WAS HE PREPARED FOR ANY OF THAT?? EQUIPPED??? ENHANCED OR TRAINED???? NO!!!!

He was a CIVILIAN ,and he went though hell in the first movie alone. Then he takes it further- making going through all these traumas his goddamned job just so he can try and fix the mistakes that weren’t even his fault in the first place and I am aware there are a lot of italics but I am feeling very emotional about this!!!!!!!right!!!!!now!!!

Danny is meant to be a savior or something, as he rallies against un-kicked heads and big business alike. But his quest as the chosen one never feels like anything more than your college roommate’s two-week quest to try Tai Chi each morning, especially when he’s paired with Colleen Wing, the owner of a martial arts dojo with actual experience. He shows up in New York, shoeless with an “I traveled abroad this summer and it CHANGED MY LIFE” outfit, and immediately remarks about how he used to skateboard in a skyscraper. You’re so fucking cool, Danny. And did you immediately go to the one dojo in New York City and school the expert female owner in both martial arts techniques and “finding your inner strength”?

Of course you did, because if something exists, whether it’s morality lessons or punching, Danny Rand has got to be the best at it. He’s the ultimate wish fulfillment fantasy for everyone who’s ever talked for an hour to a stranger about finding their zen and then gotten angry when that stranger refused to sign up for Tae Kwon Do lessons. He’s lacks any character traits, but if you have a character trait, Danny Rand could still probably one-up you on it. He’s the guy who tries to fuck a girl after her massage session and claims that it was all about “healing.”

How Iron Fist Killed Marvel’s Winning Streak

I’m looking back at this today and reflecting.
One of the biggest lessons that I have learned is that change takes time.
That all your small efforts add up.
One day you’ll wake up and you won’t even believe how much your body has changed.
Work hard everyday.
Do it without expectations.
Expectations would hinder my progress. Why? Because after a week, or two of giving it my all I would see no difference and I would stop.
But this time, I kept going. I stayed consistent and change happened.
Your body has no time limit.
This is a life long journey.
Be patient with yourself
And ever stop trying!

He changed her. He changed her in a way that she can’t undo. And she hated it. She could not feel anymore. She didn’t care, really. She broke hearts without even wondering about the possible damage. She was a storm, destroying every heart that crossed her path. Of course, she knew it was wrong. She knew. But that did not stop her. She envied those innocent hearts, willing to risk everything they had for this one stupid thing: love. Oh, love. So powerful, yet so destructive. It brought her so high, only to drop her lower than she has ever been.

Tiny, Rambly Rant

This can’t be said enough:

Eliminate mundane causes before turning to the supernatural.

And I can understand how that would seem counter-intuitive, but let me explain you a thing …

When one takes up the craft they often feel like a whole brand new world opens up to them. Everything changes, and nothing will ever be the same, and we sometimes take this new attitude and apply it to everything. Everything becomes magical and everything has an underlying magical aura.

This is something a decent craft teacher will stop with a newspaper to the nose. *smack*

When we flip the perception, and look at everything with mundane suspicion, we are actually less likely to miss the woo. By eliminating all of the mundane causes for a thing, you also eliminate that pesky doubt you keep hearing me grumble about. You are more sure about what you’re dealing with, and can act accordingly.

For example:

I wear hematite to help with my social anxiety. They’re really energy sensitive. It is said that when they’re overwhelmed they shatter.

They are also pretty fragile and if you smack it against everything, of course, it’ll shatter.

So, when a ring breaks off my hand and I know that I’ve just been literally running into shit for the last couple of weeks. I know that it’s because gravity plays favorites, and I’ve accidentally put too much force on it.

But when a necklace that has just been sitting on my bedside table, protecting the homestead goes kaboom without being knocked around, dropped or otherwise provoked, then I know something is up.

Saturating your world with a perceived magical-ness, weakens your senses. It desensitizes you to what is out there. I recommend picking up a deliberate, goal oriented practice as opposed to a wild, come-what-may, practice. Trust me, if you’re open, the fuckery will come to you, you don’t have to go looking for it.

No, really though. Go see a doctor if you feel physically weird. Go see a mental health professional if your brain feels off. Eliminate the non-magical causes, first, and then start to investigate the supernatural.

I hope that ramble makes sense.

~Guys, guuuys...

I’ve just learnt that Ben Affleck:

- has taught himself Arabic

- speaks Spanish and French too

- is so good at doing impressions that when he did one to Morgan Freeman, it was so accurate Freeman told him, “You ever do that again, I’ll kill you”

- won $356,000 by winning the California State Poker Championships in June 2004 - defeating some of the best poker players in the world in the process

- filmed four movies simultaneously in 2001: Pearl Harbor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Changing Lanes, and The Sum of All Fears 

- began an intense two-hour a day workout regime the day after he was cast as Batman

- received a lifetime ban from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas&#146; Hard Rock Casino due to his ‘counting cards’ skills


Which tells me:

1. He’s fucking smart. I mean, he can pick up/learn languages pretty well (one of which is Arabic, Damian are you listening and he majored in Middle Eastern Affairs in college) and he is a boss at poker/blackjack.

2. He’s a workaholic. Look, I’ve never made a film (or even a short video) in my entire life, but he did 4 in one year at the same time and I bet he’s done similar workloads throughout his career. Also, see: two-hour a day workout regime for more evidence.

3. He can do good enough impressions to freak the fuck out of God™.


Ergo

= Ben Affleck is well on his way to being Ultimate Batman

All Hail the mighty Bat!

ignore me creepy internet researching the fuck out of him to get my hands on this info. i needed it to defend myself from absolutely no one. fucking fight me

Listen, I am HERE for Otabek and Yurio forming a deep, solid friendship based on common interests and attitudes.

I am HERE for Otabek being this big ol’ sweetheart beneath that bad boy leather exterior and I am HERE for Yurio being the only one allowed to see that side of him.

I am HERE for Otabek helping Yurio through this rough patch in life where things are changing fast. His body is changing. His brother/mentor Viktor inexplicably QUIT skating (the greatest thing ever) for no good reason. He has crazed fans stalking him. And being the best is a little harder than he thought it would be. But Otabek is a few years older and wiser and just THERE for him (like he feels Viktor no longer is)

I am HERE for when Yurio and Otabek have been friends for a few years, and things start to change again. He thinks he might be tired of this life where skating is not the first thing but the ONLY thing. Yurio thinks he might be in love with his best friend. He suddenly starts to understands why Viktor quit, and that there needs to be more to life than winning.

I am HERE for this beautiful friendship that has all the potential in the world to be life changing and soul quaking.
