Now that there’s the new cursive meme going around I’ve seen some people saying that they haven’t used cursive since elementary school, and some said they don’t even remember how to read it and honestly I was?? So confused?? 

Then I realized that cursive is not mandatory in some places, which is so strange for me because in Italy I was taught cursive from first grade, and it was the type of handwriting we all had to write our tests in? All the way up to the end of high school, we could write our notes however we liked, but an official exam was written in cursive. Some people still prefer it over printing.

Personally, I still write everything in cursive, since I find it faster.

“Are you wearing my jacket?" 

"Yep" 

"Are you wearing only my jacket?" 

"Yep"

Some fan art I did for @princedeadend and their fic Don’t Break Connection, Baby. This scene is just so funny and cute and so typical of Lance lol. Please go check out this fic cause it’s amazing and give the author some love as well

Some Autism Mom™: I’m tired of being an autism mom. My child can’t talk, can’t go to the toilet, can’t get dressed, can’t do anything and he makes my life hell. I wake up every day feeding his every need and all he does is scream and smear poop. I get no rest or respite. Yesterday, he bit me because I hugged him. I don’t want to be an autism mom, but I have no choice. I love my son, but I wish he wasn’t autistic.

Society: Wow, you’re so brave, mama! Thank you for being real and truthful!


Some Autistic Person commenting on the Autism Mom™: I’m tired of autism moms posting embarrassing details about autistic people’s lives and telling the world how hard we are to deal with. Those kinds of posts are why we get murdered by caregivers and why our voices are constantly ignored. I wish moms would listen to autistic adults more instead of crying on the internet about how hard their lives are and saying they have no help. Autistic lives are not a side show, please stop treating them like one.

Society: OMG shut up, yo’ure so disrespectful to her struggles! You don’t know what she goes through. You must be really high functioning to use a computer and type, so you don’t know real autism and you can’t speak for really low functioning people who don’t even know they’re human!


Spot the problem.

Fun fact: here in Italy Friday the 13th is not a day of bad luck, it’s actually Friday the 17th. The reason is probably that in Roman numbers 17 is written as XVII, which can be shuffled in VIXI (“I lived”, meaning you are dead in the present).
In Italy, 13 is usually a lucky number! Even though, due to Americanization, many young people consider Friday the 13th unlucky as well.
Key word: as well. Because, guess what? Friday the 17th occurs twice in 2017 (on both February and March), and Friday the 13th also occurs twice (on January and October).
Is 2017 an unlucky year, then? No! Even though we get four unlucky days (plus the year itself finishes with 17)
