so this girl i knew from college, who I’ve been facebook friends for awhile, and who regularly posts really great uplifting feminist and pro women of color posts, has been posting stuff that just comes across as very anti-trans. I’ve tried to talk to her about it, but she doesn’t seem to think that believing all the hurtful myths out there about the trans community is wrong. its very sad, seeing that. I expect ignorance from some of my conservative racist sexist relatives, but to see it from someone who is such a champion for other oppressed groups…
I’m cisgender myself, and I didn’t use to understand what transgender was, or could be. However, it took me less than a few hours to educate myself via some awesome trans youtubers and trans allies, now I consider myself an ally, and to see someone who i thought was kind, considerate, and intelligent saying stuff that’s not just ignorant but blatantly transphobic really bothers me.
so i’m taking this depressing moment and turning it into something hopefully positive, by reminding everyone that
1. Transpeople are people. They deserve the same rights as cispeople. They do not deserve to be humiliated or abused in any way, not as a ‘joke’ and not ‘to make a point’.
2. what ever privileges a transperson may or may not have had in their life does not negate the fact that they will face discrimination for being trans that us cisgender folks will never have to endure.
3. transgender is an umbrella term. A person may say they are transgender, and mean they are transitioning from one binary gender to another, or they may also mean they are genderqueer, genderfluid, or agender, what they are is transitioning gender (a construct created by cis-people to benefit cis-people).
4. it doesn’t matter if the person talking to you looks like Hagrid, if they identify as a woman, than they ARE a woman. You don’t live in their body, you don’t feel what they feel, you don’t have any right to tell them what they do or do not identify as.
5. sadly, just because a person is liberal, anti-discrimination, or part of the LGBTQ community, doesn’t mean they will care about trans rights.
6. we should ALL care about trans rights, trans rights are human rights.
Please feel free to reblog this as much as possible. I want the world to know that acceptance towards others starts within our own hearts. To quote the singer and poet, Jewel, - “in the end, only kindness matters.”
Dick grayson + amazon! reader + lasso of truth?? Please!
(sorry if it’s so short)
“What do you want?” you ask, a small
smirk slowly making its way toward the corners of your lips as you speak. You
know you have him wrapped in your finger now, especially now that you’re using
your mother’s gift to you. There’s a part of you that tells you that you shouldn’t
be using your mother’s gift for situations such as these, but you quickly shake
your head and dismiss the thought out of your mind, reminding yourself that it’s
only just one time and nothing more.
“You,” he replies, exhaling the
words out in a breathless rush. He closes his eyes as the lasso tightens around
his form, almost as though it’s getting harder and harder for him with each second
that passes. “You’re the only one I want.”
You merely smirk at him in response,
leaning toward him to stare closely at him. He opens his eyes and stares back
at you, and you could see that there’s a longing in his gaze, something that
you know is for you and only you.
“I want you,” he says, whispering
the words softly against your lips. You merely smirk at him once more in
response, nodding your head at his words as though in satisfaction before leaning
closer toward him and whispering something against his lips.
“Then, your wish is my command,” you
say, uttering the words softly as a whisper, before finally sealing your words,
leaning forward and capturing his lips with yours in a deep kiss.
Reasonable expectations keep you focused on the bigger picture which helps you to be thankful for the smaller details.
I probably should‘t have read Carter’s preliminary neuropsych eval on Thanksgiving morning. His IQ has slipped from 62 to 58, which wasn’t unexpected. IQ is relative to your peers, so as typically developing youngsters age their learning curve gets steeper, meaning they’re able to learn deeper, more complex concepts. Carter’s learning curve stays flatter, so his IQ will drop relative to his peers.
His trajectory is now a mastery of elementary school concepts by the time high school ends, whereas he was earlier projected to max out at the middle school level.
Its not easy to be the parent of a child with special needs but knowing and accepting his probable trajectory makes it easier to go with the flow and let life take us where ever it does.
This understanding allows me to be thankful for his sweet spirit; the incredible empathy he displays for animals, friends, and strangers; and his enjoyment of listening to music while dancing around all silly and giddy. (He gets that last one from me.)
remember a few months ago how you came up with the whole idea of what an anti around christmas may look like? and now the countdown timer on the anti shirt apparently ends on the first day of the twelve days of christmas?? and now i'm very worried your 'what if' post turns out to not be so 'if' and i don't know how to feel about this
Isn’t it wild??
Its funny because I posted about Christmas Anti in the tag and then a little while later posted that I worried that sometimes Jack would see an Anti ‘what if’ and think “Fuck, I can’t use that now.” He liked that post which led me to think we probably wouldn’t get Christmas Anti (if he even actually saw the orig post) because I’d spoiled it by spelling it out and making it obvious.
But here we are.
I’m SO excited.
I still don’t know if the 2 games have been coincidentally Anti-like (doubtful, but possible). I don’t know if they’re related to the shirt sales. I don’t know if the shirt now makes a Christmas build up too obvious. I don’t know if it’s gonna be part of a bigger Christmas campaign.
It’s be super easy to have continuity with Larissa’s hair. she went from dreads to a low cut that turned into waves and now she’s growing out her waves so its all logical progression of hairstyles, unlike poor tatiana. her face completely changed for the better. I think its more realistic for her size i.e. thicker cheeks, her nose has always been my favorite feature and i feel like its being done more justice now. The eyebrows was an UPGRADE. also cough cough now she’s using blushes, bc those didn’t exist last year. Also, NO tattoos. the more i developed her as a character, the less and less it made since for her to have any tattoos, especially like how she had them from the beginning. it makes NO logical sense.
So i just wanna say that the Policetale comic might be delayed a bit because college and stuff, and then there’s the final exams on early december. If i’m able to at least get one page done this week or maybe the next week, it’d be a miracle.
And i know, i made the comic out of a pencil and just sketched the hell out of it. I’m a bit low on budget for now bcs i can’t afford to buy art materials yet (i’m still dreaming to get at least one copic marker). And i still draw on used papers, which is kinda suck??? Bcs all i have is used papers. I don’t have any stylus or wacom or any digital art equipments as of now. They’re REALLY expensive, and considering that i’m currently living in a small town which has no cinemas or proper mall of its own, it sucks. I had to buy sharpies as a substitute for copic and surprise surprise, i have no time to actually use them.
Which is why i’m still stuck in sketching on used papers. College almost drains me in and out. Especially since i’m stuck in a faculty that i don’t want to be in, this is gonna be a lot harder than i can imagine.
Bleh, i’m ranting now. All i wana say that Policetale comic would be a bit slower in update so i’m sorry in advance. We haven’t even reached the real chapters yet gdi
ive realized my voice has definitely dropped bc i was just playing and absently singing along to bittersweet bundle of misery (graham’s song) and it used to be slightly out of my vocal range but i can totally do it now
For the first time,
scientists have discovered a classic formula for pi in the world of
quantum physics. Pi is the ratio between a circle’s circumference and
its diameter, and is incredibly important in pure mathematics, but now
scientists have also found it “lurking” in the world of physics, when
using quantum mechanics to compare the energy levels of a hydrogen atom.
who would have ever expected pi to come up in physics?? in the hydrogen atom orbitals, no less!
*glances at spherical harmonics* oh, right. everyone.
i haven’t been sleeping well recently. i miss her so much. everywhere i go, no matter what im doing, she’s always there in my head. i miss her. i cry every day. i can’t throw away anything of hers. i washed all of her clothes and put them away neatly in its own drawer in my dresser. I miss her. I have to sleep with her stuffed bear she got me. i keep all of her stuffed animals i got for her in my room. pinky, lucky, ellie, Robin Hood, and rhyno. i got rhyno out of a claw machine at walmart for her. she doesn’t know about him but he’s hers too. i miss her. she has a new boyfriend now. hes probably a lot better than i am. do you know how i know she loves him? because she used to look at me that way. those eyes. those eyes that stared deep into my soul. “brown like the color of dirt” she always said. “then i love dirt” I always said back. she was always very insecure of her body, but i thought she had the most gorgeous body I’ve ever seen. i loved every part of her, including the parts she hated. i have nightmares often, i wake up crying and i go to pull her closer to me and she’s not there. i start crying again and eventually exhaust myself to go back to sleep. it’s a never ending cycle. i miss her. i miss the way she would kiss me in my sleep. i miss seeing her perfect face. i miss kissing her. i always got weak in the knees every time. that euphoric feeling. that smile. that smile that could light up New York City if the power went out. that smile that made every 10 hour day at work better in an instant. the worst part is, charlie, wondering if she misses me as much as i miss her. I miss her. i still love her. my girl. my princess. my world. please help me, charlie. im falling apart more every day. i miss so you much, princess. i promise ill become the man you deserve.
I’ve seen this here and there but I never really found out what its deal is. It’s definitely a unique spin on the Mazinger design, but at the same time there’s something oddly offputting about it. I’m gonna say 7/10 for now.
Outside of sex how has cuckolding changed your relationship with each other. Are you closer and more loving or are you still a submissive b****boi of a husband that does what his wife tells him?
we’ve gotten closer definitely. I think i’m more loving and attentive. being denied sex changes the relationship. i dont expect it now and that takes the pressure off her. we can kiss and cuddle and she knows my erection wont be making demands on her. tbh we kiss much more passionately now than we did before and i think that’s because i’m forced to appreciate her more without sex and arousal clouding my mind. for us, sex is pretty much limited to me giving her oral. she only fucks other men now and we both find it strange and funny that its worked out that way. she asks if i want to fuck every now and then and its not like i deny myself or anything… it just kinda doesnt happen and we’re both cool with it. she knows i really love cleaning her after she’s been with a guy so makes it a special treat for me when she gets home. we both into the cuck thing and it gets us both off. for now at least. we dont see us carrying on like this forever.
Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit. Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them). Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin). On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”. Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.
I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.
