I love how some people seems to think Ephemera is secretly evil-succumb to darkness-related to Xehanort -type of character just because he have a silver hair lol. Can’t blame you, I thought the same when the first time seeing Ephemer, silver hair character are always look suspicious in every kingdom hearts xD
thank god he’s still a nice character (at least for now)
I wonder if ToppDogg’s Hansol coming out as an person with a sexuality different to heterosexuality will lead to any idols coming out as well. What he did was brave and might spark discussion with Korean music and actual sexuality in regards to LGBTQIA+ for idols.

Hey, I'm taking Spanish right now in school and I've noticed that every other word is either feminine or masculine, so my question is if there is any way to make these words or pronouns gender neutral, so that way I don't offend anyone. I tried asking my teacher in a discrete way "What if you just met someone and couldn't tell their gender?" "You can tell just by looking at them" "but what if they look really ambiguous" "you'll just have to make a judgement call" -_- <--mfw
There is no official way to be gender neutral in Spanish, sorry dude but that’s how the language works.
i still get so mad when i think about how much these really abstract and unrealistic ideas about queerness contributed to my abuse. like, if you ever wanna know why i’m so bitter towards post-modern queer theory (aside from the more surface level stuff, like…fuckin’ ace discourse and who’s allowed at the pride parade or whatever) this is it. it’s real and it’s common and it’s happening to more women than anyone wants to admit.
you have these predatory, pseudo-leftist, pseudo-feminist men finding ways to claim queer identity, and then using this self-ascribed status to more effectively prey on women. and let’s be real here, they’re usually lesbians. but because “queer” has become this ambiguous term that can literally mean anything, we’re taking away women’s agency to name their own abuse and we’re pretending that these inherent power structures no longer exist as soon as a man finds a way to identify into queerness.
my abuser literally changed nothing about himself. he still used male pronouns, still dressed the same way he’d always dressed, still only dated other women, and still functioned as a man in the world at large. but because he told me that he was queer and non-binary, and because i was so fucking entrenched in these immaterial and abstract ideas about queerness, he abused the shit out of me for a year and i wasn’t allowed to talk about it or confront him about it or stand up for myself, because he wasn’t *really* a man and i wasn’t *really* a woman.
he convinced me that, because i have masculine features, i wasn’t actually a woman, so if anything, i was posited as the bad guy for being the one who was actively displaying and embracing masculinity, whereas he supposedly didn’t possess any masculinity.
but let’s be real here. i was a woman, he was a man, and i was being abused in the same way that men have been abusing women since the beginning of fucking time. and i know i’m just being an evil, gatekeeping dyke or whatever, but it’s so fucking frustrating to feel like i’m the bad guy for wanting us to be cautious in our use of the word “queer” so as to avoid this really ambiguous term that allows for the concealment of abuse and manipulation.
i still feel like i’m not even allowed to talk about this, because i’m doing something wrong by questioning his identity or whatever. but i know what i experienced, i know what other women have experienced, and it’s so fucking immaterial to keep acting like this isn’t something that can and does happen.
With a muffled groan of exertion, Jemma tugged on either
side of her shirt, trying to force them close enough to do up the buttons over
her growing stomach. But, the material simply refused to give anymore, leaving
an inch of bare skin still exposed down the center of her torso.
“I think it’s time to admit defeat, Jem.”
Huffing out a breath, Jemma finally
gave up on the shirt and allowed it to settle around the soft curve of her baby
bump. Turning to face her amused husband where he was leaning up against the
doorframe of their bedroom and had obviously been watching her struggle, she
sighed, “I suppose you’re right – but, at least I made it almost five months
before I had to buy new clothes.”
“How you can even make being pregnant competitive, I’ll never know.”
Fitz shook his head, an unbearably fond smile tugging at his lips that Jemma
couldn’t help but return. “Alright, see if you can find something that still
fits, and we’ll head out right now and pick you up some new things before you
have no options left.”
“Well, I’ll always have the
option of not wearing a shirt,” Jemma
shot back teasingly, even as she threw a contemplative look at her side of
their opened closet.
“Much as I’d love that, I don’t
think it’s appropriate in most social situations.”
do you think junko's happiness at being executed was because of experiencing despair like she claimed, or because she knew she had at least two AI versions of herself made and that she was still basically a god to a whole bunch of despair-ified cult members? maybe both?
So I haven’t answered this ask because it required time on my part, so since I’m sitting here waiting for the next Exile Election video to finish encoding so I can upload it, let me take a crack at it.
