on our terms

Lets have a bit of a talk about the Middle East and why it’s actually West Asia

First lets describe what the ‘Middle East’ actually is

The Middle East is focused on Western Asia and Egypt, it encompasses around thirty two ethnic groups and seventeen countries. It is the birthplace of many modern religions.

Now how did it come to be known as the ‘ Middle East’ ?

Well when Britain was in its colonial days it decided that ‘West Asia’ wasn’t enough so they forced the name ‘Middle East’ onto our land.

 It’s because of  Eurocentric ideals that we are now known as ‘The Middle East’ and not part of our home, Asia. 

What does this mean?

Most of our people use the term Asian for ourselves once we find out about the European influence in our areas name. But there is a struggle because mainly white people refuse to see us other than the categories they put us in. 

If you don’t see The Middle East as part of Asia take a step back and wonder why that is. If you live in a Eurocentric country you can probably guess why. 

I’m Middle Eastern, Can I use the term West Asian/Asian for myself?

You absolutely can. Many Middle Eastern bloggers use the term West Asian for themselves once they actually do the research. BUT this does not mean you can reclaim East Asian slurs. Please keep that in mind.

Please reblog this, and yes you can reblog if you are white. 

I am profoundly saddened that friend, hero and creator of the rainbow 🌈 flag, Gilbert Baker died today.

‘We are a people, a tribe if you will. And flags are about proclaiming power, so it’s very appropriate. We needed something beautiful, something from us. The rainbow is so perfect because it really fits our diversity in terms of race, gender, ages, all of those things.’ – Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017)

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: It’s been twenty one years since the Yu Yu Hakusho manga ended and twenty since the anime was finished. It’s been ten years since the dub aired. Where is my re-make? Does this anime not deserve the respect of being re-animated for the fandom’s viewing pleasure? Is there a petition I can sign? Why does Cars deserve a third movie but Yu Yu Hakusho continues to be ignored? Who cares about Salior Moon; I want to see Yuusuke with pants up to his neck in a current style. I want to see Hiei’s hair sticking up over the edge of panels in glowly, thin-lined animation. Where are my panels showing Kurama's stomach wounds in a format other than jpeg? I want Kazuma's cheek bones in high definition. How do I make this happen? How do I
Washington State University Physicists create 'negative mass'

Washington State University physicists have created a fluid with negative mass, which is exactly what it sounds like. Push it, and unlike every physical object in the world we know, it doesn’t accelerate in the direction it was pushed. It accelerates backwards.

The phenomenon is rarely created in laboratory conditions and can be used to explore some of the more challenging concepts of the cosmos, said Michael Forbes, a WSU assistant professor of physics and astronomy and an affiliate assistant professor at the University of Washington. The research appears today in the journal Physical Review Letters, where it is featured as an “Editor’s Suggestion.”

Hypothetically, matter can have negative mass in the same sense that an electric charge can be either negative or positive. People rarely think in these terms, and our everyday world sees only the positive aspects of Isaac Newton’s Second Law of Motion, in which a force is equal to the mass of an object times its acceleration, or F=ma. In other words, if you push an object, it will accelerate in the direction you’re pushing it. Mass will accelerate in the direction of the force.

Why Do You Not Want to Represent Us?

A Discussion on Culture and Erasure

WWC frequently receives asks wondering if it’s alright to have PoC distant from their culture, outright not having one— or even if it’s okay to make something up to fit what the person wants to write about. And we feel the need to ask: why? Why do you only want our looks, our cultural trappings, without ever having a culture? Why do you want to perpetuate the pain of assimilation, of abuse, of violence? Why do you wish to create something “better” for your own gains, instead of taking us as we are?

That is what you are doing, every time you do not put in all of us, or create something to fit your own whims over our reality. We are more than our skin and outward appearance of difference. We are more than a collection of traits. We are more than stereotypes of what you think we are. Our ethnicities colour every aspect of our lives and, while we aren’t thinking about it all the time, we are aware of it. We were built by it. We live it every day. 

Representation is more than simply “I have brown people.” It is “I have this segment of culture respected in my story.” It means “this character is me”, which means this character must be built by the same factors that built us— our culture. Our real culture, not modified with “artistic licence” to make a “better” plot.

By stripping us of our ethnicities, you are stripping away our hearts. You are stripping away our homes. You are writing stories that simply remind us the world sees our bodies and cultures as playthings. As if our souls can be fragmented and split apart so you can tell yourself “I’m being diverse.” How can you say that when we do not see ourselves in your work? You are not doing anyone any justice. You have failed to understand the concept of what representation even is: a person’s life in media.

While we are no different from the majority in terms of our minds, our passions, our ideas, we are different in where we come from. Our experience was shaped by our culture and in order to show us as true characters, you must give your own characters our ethnicity’s history. Our comforts will be different from yours because we grew up being comforted by different things. Our favourites will be different because we hold different things at higher value.

Assimilating us with your actions— refusing to do the proper work involved to truly build a character of Color with as rich a background as white characters— simply perpetuates the pain of being marginalized. It’s lazy. 

That also isn’t to say that people without complex relationships to their ethnicities exist, but ask yourself: are you the person to tell this story? Chances are, you are not. Leave narratives of pain to the people who’ve lived it, where they belong. We are not your stock plots. 

Respect us enough to take all of us, not just the parts you want. To do anything else would be an injustice.

Avoid some of the Main Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast – People who don’t eat breakfast have lower blood sugar levels. This can lead to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain (and to underperformance in terms of thinking, processing , retrieval and memory skills).

2. Overreacting – This can flood the brain with chemical which interferes with clear thinking, logical analysis and memory.

3. Smoking – This can cause a shrinkage in the brain, and possibly lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

4. High Sugar Consumption – Consuming too much sugar interferes with the absorption of proteins and nutrients. These are essential for healthy brain development.

5. Air Pollution – The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain. Again, this can reduce and interfere with the brain’s healthy functioning.

6. Sleep Deprivation – Sleep allows our brain to rest and rejuvenate itself. Long term sleep deprivation accelerates the death of brain cells. It interferes with putting down new memory traces, effective problem solving and memory retention.

7. Exercising your Brain in Times of Illness – Working or studying during times of sickness can lead to a ineffective thinking, poor processing, and to poor memory and retention.

8. Lack of Stimulation – Thinking is the best way to train our brain. Lack of stimulation can prevent new neural pathways from forming. It can also prevent us from reaching our potential in terms of creative thinking and analytical thinking. Source: The World Health Organisation

Understanding the species Gentleman


You hear it everywhere these days: the term “gent” or “gentleman” has become ubiquitous in men’s magazines, blogs, and conversations. Videos welcome “gentlemen” and everybody seems to use the word for a wide range of men.
Some say that anything other than the traditional definition of a gentleman is a disappointment. Other claim that a gentleman must have staff and would never cook for himself.
Well I couldn’t disagree more – the definition of a gentleman has changed and for the better. Since the definition of a gentleman is so fundamental to what Gentleman’s Essentials stands for, I thought it was time to explain the way we understand what a gentleman is. For this excursion, I’d like to take you back…

The Origin
Hundreds of years ago, a gentleman was a man of high social position and wealth. Even dictionaries today point to this definition, as well as several others:
1. A chivalrous, courteous, or honorable man.
2. A polite or formal way of referring to a man.
3. A man of noble birth attached to a royal household
4. A man of good social position, especially one of wealth and leisure
5. A courteous title for a male fellow member of the House of Commons or the House of Representatives

So what does it really mean? There is much more to being a gentleman than mere courtesy; traditional acts of chivalry can come off as condescending, and “honor” is a highly relative concept.
These days, the title “gentleman” is no longer relevant as an indication of one’s refinement and character, as it was once assumed to be for men of wealth and title who didn’t have to work for a living.
In our opinion, the term is far more egalitarian, and these days, to say you are a gentleman means you have to earn it. Wealth and power are no longer enough, and in fact, they simply aren’t a relevant part of the modern definition. 

Money and position can’t buy you class or respect.

The Definition of a Modern Gentleman
The term is far more complicated, and we think it’s important to shed some light on why and how we use it, and why the definition of the modern gentleman matters.
We firmly believe any man can be a gentleman if he wants to be, but it’s not a small undertaking. It’s a journey, something that a man continually strives to be, rather than a destination. A gentleman is/ has:

1 A Gentleman Has Good Manners: Here, we agree with the dictionary. A gentleman is courteous, polite, and respectful. He says please and thank you, waits his turn in line, and treats others as they wish to be treated. He is an equitable conversation partner.

2 A Gentleman Has High Standards. High standards push people to do the best they can, and gentlemen set them for themselves. A gentleman expects a high standard of quality, value, and functionality from the things he buys to the things he does. He expects as much of himself as he does of other people.

3 A Gentleman is Well Dressed: This one shouldn’t be a surprise. A well-dressed man is appropriately attired based on the season, the occasion, and his own style. Dressing well isn’t a matter of money for a gentleman, but rather of careful curation of clothing and accessories based on his means, the occasion, and his tastes. His dress demonstrates that he recognizes the power of clothes the impression they make, and the role they play in society. Clothes are used to convey a gentleman’s respect for his host, his office, or for the host of an event, but not to shock, evoke jealousy, or show off. Dressing well is a point of pride for a gentleman because it demonstrates his personality and taste.

4 A Gentleman is Imperfect. This may be the most important characteristic on the list. The term “gentleman” isn’t meant to be an unattainable ideal; it takes into account basic human nature, in which we all make mistakes, choices, and judgments every day. The difference lies in that a gentleman does not believe himself to be perfect, but instead takes ownership and responsibility for the things he can control: his actions, knowledge, and approach to the world.

5 A Gentleman is Open Minded: A gentleman does not believe that his opinions and knowledge are complete and unquestionable. He strives to learn, is open to new ideas, accepts constructive criticism, and welcomes failure as a path to growth and self-awareness. A gentleman does not argue purely for the pleasure of being right but focuses on is able to put himself in other people’s shoes for the purposes of understanding an alternate perspective from his own.
he person who cut you off on the highway may have received bad news; a friend may not respond to your call because they are behind at work – a gentleman tries not to jump to negative conclusions about other people.

6 A Gentleman is Interesting and Informed: These days it is easy to get lost in the cycle of sleep-work-netflix-repeat that deprives people of anything interesting to say. An interesting man can successfully carry a conversation about a number of subjects, is interested in the world around him and how it works, and actively seeks to grow his knowledge for his own character building and enjoyment. Hobbies and personal interests reveal his passions and his engagement with activities that are meaningful to him.

7 A Gentleman’s Actions Match His Words. Quite simply, a gentleman makes promises that he intends to keep.

8 A Gentleman Treats People with Respect: When we say people, we mean everyone – women, colleagues, superiors, waitstaff and customer service people. This reflects a gentleman’s belief that all people are created equal; he does not claim to have more or fewer rights than those around him. He is compassionate with those less fortunate than himself. He doesn’t believe that the world is a zero-sum game, nor does he believe that putting someone else down will lift him up.

9 A Gentleman Recognizes the Difference Between Arrogance and Confidence. If an arrogant man who believes himself to be of superior importance relies on his opinion of himself relative to others. A gentleman believes in himself and his abilities independently of other people. An arrogant man must always win to feel validated while a gentleman self-validates from within. 

10 A Gentleman Wields Power Purposefully. Though there are many potential sources for the statement “with great power comes great responsibility,” there is an inherent truth in it for a gentleman. If he is in a position of power, he combines all of the above traits to utilize that power purposefully and not selfishly. Not for revenge, not for his own personal gain, and not in a way that tramples the rights of others.

So why does this all matter? It matters because being a gentleman sets a high bar for men, us included, to actively work towards every day. Rather than being a destination, it’s an aspiration that comes from the lifetime pursuit of personal betterment, self-awareness, and motivation.
The highest achievement is to be recognized as a gentleman by those around you, since at it’s core it is an honor conferred only by other people. We use the term gentleman frequently, and we think it should mean something. It’s not just a way to address other men; it’s a statement about who we are and who we want to be.

The Challenges of Being a Gentleman in Everyday Life
While all of this sounds admirable, living up to those ideals day in and day out can become quite challenging at times. When a man is in a bad mood, stressed or tired, he may say or do things that are out of character. In those situations it is important to apologize to others and if it is sincere people will accept it. I know what I am talking about because I certainly have my fair share of ungentlemanly failures.

Warning to my fellow auties

So… does anyone remember when some assholes tried to start an “autistic selfie day” that just happened to fall on Blackout?

And how it turned out, after much detective work, to be a bunch of allistic trolls trying to use us as a weapon for their racism?

It’s happening again: People are claiming that “a-spec” was stolen from us by asexual and aromantic people.

THIS IS NOT TRUE.

“asexual/aromantic spectrum” has a history going back at least four years now, and “a-spec” at least two. Meanwhile, if you look around… where exactly in our community are those terms being used?

Further: A lot of auties are asexual or aromantic. Like… waaaay more than the general population. Last time I did an informal straw poll, the number was eight times higher than expected. This throws them under the bus, forcing them to pick one side of themselves to fight with the other.

This is a lie being spread by outside instigators who want us to be their weapon. Do not fall for it.

EDIT: Just to be clear, here, this is not a comment in any way on the relative evils of the bigotries involved here. This is just a reminder that people have tried to use us like this before, and they’re doing it again.

i remember, back before “catch and release”, there was a particular vein of the “peridot has artificial limbs” theory that i really liked: for whatever reason, peridot couldn’t form a full light body, and so had to have artificial additions so that she could stabilise and form.

and like?? that would have been so cool… like imagine the cgs keep the limb enhancers to examine them, and then steven unbubbles peridot. and peri gets about five feet before her form just starts totally glitching out. it’s mostly her limbs - her feet disappear from under her, her arms keep reverting to stubby bits of light, and while she’s trying to force herself to keep her form together she just can’t.

and steven feels really bad for her, because she can barely move around. she can’t hold things, she trips every five seconds because her legs keep destabilising, and that sort of thing. so he goes to the other gems and is like “hey… so long as we’re keeping her unbubbled… maybe we should give her back her limbs?” and the other cgs agree that this is probably a good idea, but they deactivate her weapons and her flying gear just in case.

peridot is super surprised when they give her back her limb enhancers - being from a cruel planet, she expected that she would be immobilised in one way or another while she was their prisoner. and that’s the start of her beginning to trust steven, because he shows the common decency to let someone have their prosthetics even though that person is a prisoner. and that just would not have happened on homeworld.

and later when peridot joins the crystal gems, she casually reactivates her weapons and flight. “huh? yeah, i could have done that at any time. i just thought it would be more conductive to cooperation if i accepted the implicit terms of our truce. i don’t turn my weapons back on and shoot you, and you don’t put me in a bubble again.”

because like, how cool would that have been? peridot would have been so relateable to pretty much any disabled person watching. amputees, those with general mobility impairments, those with motor control issues, or anyone who needs assistive technology to function in society. and it would have given the message of “assistive technology like screens, prosthetics and the like are important and non-negotiable - you can’t take away someone’s limbs or senses just because you don’t like them!”

Bokayjunkie’s Yearbook Meme
        ◆ anonymous asked: Gilmore Girls + 12 (Most Changed)

anonymous asked:

i was wondering if you had any tips for doing the internet relationship/long distance thing? i think i have serious feelings and im so fucking scared

(I’m going to start by assuming that this person returns your feelings and that the biggest obstacle in the way of your relationship is like, a continent or something. if that’s not the case, see if they’re on board with the whole different time zones thing, and return to this ask later.)

the easiest advice I can give is for you and your partner to settle on a method/pattern of communication and absolutely stick with it. how often are you going to talk? how long? do you want to know the little details of their day as they’re happening, or would you rather kick up with skype and some wine? the object of your affections may have different expectations about this, so it’s important to sort it out early, and be ready to renegotiate as necessary. trust your person to communicate with you as they’ve promised, and hold up your end of the bargain. 

my girlfriend and I fell in love ten thousand 8-hour AIM marathons at a time, so once we were together, our correspondence was more or less constant; if one person couldn’t talk, the other would just chat (in an enormous email, or the long twitter DM thread we used in lieu of texting) like they were there, and then the absent one would dive back into the conversation when they had a chance. I typed messages to her blind where my phone was hidden in my barista apron all night, then left work, hopped on gdocs to collaborate on something for four hours, then got on skype for two more to discuss what we’d just done. does that sound exhausting? then you might not want to talk daily on basically every platform imaginable. we were…pretty high octane, which worked for us. what can I say, I like her a lot.  

another thing: you and your partner need to decide how long the distance will last. if you’re okay with it being permanent, your partner will need to know and agree. (that sounds–miserable, honestly, but that’s me.) if you’re not, the two of you can make plans for how to eventually combine your lives. it may take some doing, especially if they’re across the entire pacific ocean, but that planning takes some of the sting out of absence, even if it’s for a future years away. talk about how you’re going to decorate your apartment, or about the meals you want to make for one another; talk about how nice it will be to see them sleepy and with their hair mussed, first thing in the morning. warn them about how long it takes you to get ready to go out. check the weather in the city where you’re someday going to live. build a picture together.

another: figure out sexual exclusivity. nothing fucks up a long distance relationship like jealousy. asking your partner to be sexually monogamous for an indefinite future is asking a lot, so you should consider your options. is this a sexually open relationship? do you live close enough to meet up every few months or so? if so, can you see yourself living on those encounters like some kind of sex camel, or is long-distance sex something you two can swing? internet relationship or no, knowing how to get your partner off through a screen is an invaluable skill. 

long distance relationships are as unique as the people who have them, but at the end of it all, one bit of advice holds for every one: pour your heart into talking to this person. pour it into riffing on dumb jokes, or admiring the turn of their smile over a fucking buggy skype call. pour it into discussing how the secret maps of your minds are stuck all over with the same pins in the same places, and how an image or a theme that strikes one of you echoes in the other like a tuning fork. pour it into telling them how they make you absolutely wild with joy. you have to. because an ocean is a long fucking way.

It is your story and we need to respect that.

This is for all those creators, animators, voice actors and everyone involved with the making of a story that is a show, a book, a comic book, a manga and/or a movie (to name a few)…


 Recently, someone took pictures while on a tour in Studio Mir. those pictures belong to DreamWorks and the Voltron Legendary Defender creators. After the poor person, posted them, they went viral within the VLD Community. Soon,they were  being contacted by Studio Mir to take those pictures down, due to legal reasons involving DreamWorks.

And this person did their best. Never in my lifetime have i seen so many people coming together to delete all those pictures from tumblr, twitter instagram etc….

And we got victory.

But of course the victory was short lived.


It started with one person. A person who, claimed they loved the romantic ship of Keith and Lance from Voltron Legendary Defender, and kept on posting those pictures all the while saying to Studio Mir,  ‘I won’t take them down unless you confirm Klance Canon’.

(i.e the ‘ship’ name of Keith and Lance.)

People started to say so many things about this person as in:

“They hate Klance and are making us shippers look bad!”

or: “They aren’t even in the Voltron fandom, they are just here being a troll (aka, nuisance)!”

To be honest, it doesn’t matter who they ship, why they did this or if they even are in the fandom. What matters here most is 1) all the people who have planned out the story of VLD and who are now, getting either, discouraged by how these so called ‘fans’ are acting or are rolling their eyes at us. And 2) The consequences Studio Mir can face due to this once small accident.

And with this one idea from that person ‘blackmailing’ Studio Mir, came copycats. Around thirty other people or so are doing the same. ‘Blackmailing’.  All claiming they just want LGBTQ representation in a very successful show like VLD but not knowing they are jeopardizing the chances of ever getting that in this and possibly many other shows.



Now, onto the show itself.

I fell for Voltron Legendary Defenders because of how it just isn’t a kids show to me. Its very well made, humorous to all ages and all in all one of the best reboots i have seen in awhile (my 32 year old Brother agrees to this too.)

But, again, as someone who too, ships Klance i have never felt more ashamed? 

A lot of people who ship LGBTQ relationships in shows and books that aren’t canon are seen as ‘Fetishizing’ these characters. 

The romantic relationship of two men or two women or all of the above, should never be considered a fetish. Because it is now the real world. Romance is real and for people to fetishize that, is sick and saddening.

I personally, love the dynamic of Klance. But, i also love and adore the dynamic of Klance not being romantic. Them becoming best friends is more than any person in this fandom could ask for. 

To even enter into a romantic relationship, people NEED to become the best of friends first. It’s common sense.



Now, i know the panel for VLD is coming up (?), and whether or not they address this isn’t our business but, what is and will always be our business is how we react. 

Our actions speak louder than words.

If Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos, walk onto that stage and say, “Keith and Lance will never enter into a romantic relationship.” it is OUR jobs to know that this wasn’t because of some person on the internet that this was probably true from the start.

But, if they say, “Any and all romantic relations that will take place in this show in the future have been decided on our own and without the pressure of you lovely people of the fandom. We make things canon on our own terms and love the continuation of support from the fandom.”

Still if Klance becomes canon, that does not mean you go and praise the people who tried to ‘blackmail’ these people. If Keith and Allura get together you don’t go bashing and hating on those people who tried to ‘blackmail’ the creators. You sit and watch the show and learn to love it not for its ships, characters, design but for it as a whole.

I am sure that whatever happens the VLD team will see that, hey, we (as in the fandom) all are very happy with how they are going with the show. They recognize they can’t simply say “Yes gay will happen”  but they also know that if they happened to plan out romance before this whole ‘blackmail’ thing happened that they have the right to.

All in all, for those people who ship all the romance between characters, or even just LOVE the show as  a whole (all fans should at least) it’s our job to:
1: STAY POSITIVE
2: To remember, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
And 3: To love the show for what it is.

 

Sincerely, Nina June.

Violence fetishism is a core element of reactionary and fascist politics, and to see leftists embrace violence not on pragmatic grounds but on those same gross “violence is rejuvenating and good and healthy” terms as our opponents is deeply troubling

Suck it, ya filthy, fake Redcoat!

LTL, FTP and all that Jazz. Compared to some of the stories here mine is fairly tame, but considering my age at the time, the effort I had put into the whole affair and the resulting payoff, I would consider this pro enough to fit in here.

I’ve lived in Germany almost my entire life, yet through a twist of fate, I grew up learning the English language as a native speaker, since my father emigrated to Germany from the USA. As such, I’ve always had an American accent when speaking English and I’ve never met anyone who thought they felt the need to complain about it. Every time a teacher asked why I spoke English so well I replied that I am a US National by birth because my Father is from the US. All my teachers seemed quite impressed, except this one Hag, half a lifetime ago… If there ever was an award for creepy Anglophilia, she’d be neck deep in honors and certificates. Instead of encouraging me to speak more so that the other students could learn proper pronunciation from an actual native speaker, like many other English teachers at my school back then did, this woman thought it necessary to berate me for “speaking in such a horrible and filthy manner” and “cure [me] of that insufferable atrocity of an accent.” Mind you, these were actual quotes from this woman. My dad was no help at all. He was fairly ignorant about me being bullied by one of my own teachers, and even went so far as to yell at me to “suck it up and respect my elders”. So, yeah, I stuck it up. It didn’t help that I also wrote in American English (you know, color instead of color, tire instead of tyre, cookie instead of biscuit, that sort of thing) and the Hag had the audacity to write these “mistakes” up as double errors, meaning I got twice points deducted for spelling errors that weren’t even actual errors! I was so fed up with this woman and it wasn’t even two months into the school year.

Now I’m just waiting for the second twin to announce he is taking everything from our Ciel but then the servants get angry and give him a talk of his lifetime. Something like “It is our Ciel who gave us names, him who saved us from our fates, him who gave us a family and place to stay. He worked the hardest of all of us, suffered the most of all of us and if you think you can just come and say everything belongs to you know, you are wrong. Our Ciel fully deserves this name, deserves this title, this manor, this wealth and you can just go back to where you came from because we are staying with OUR master!”

Wouldn’t that be absolutely epic?
