opinion :d

brigatesquirtle replied to your post: at the risk of stirring up discourse– imo “dyke”…

im really sorry to be a bother, but could you make a couple more examples ? english is not my first language and i don’t really see the difference



no worries! maybe it’ll help if I add explanations too 

Describing an aesthetic/style/trait/etc. of an intimate partner who (presumably) is consenting to you using that word to describe them is totally okay for any wlw

Pan woman: my girlfriend got a pair of dyke boots and she looks so cute  👍
Bi woman, with consent: my wife is a tiny butch dyke and I love her 👍

Describing an aesthetic/style/trait/etc. of someone who hasn’t consented (e.g. a stranger, acquaintance, friend you don’t know that well, someone who doesn’t use the word for themselves) it’s not okay to use that word

Bi woman: I saw this dyke on the train earlier reading Bechdel  ❌
Pan woman: my neighbor has a super dykey haircut, I’m gonna ask her out  ❌

Using the word as an identifier is totally okay for lesbians, but not okay for non-lesbians

Lesbian: I’m not queer, I’m a dyke 👍
Bi woman: I’m with a guy right now but I used to be a total dyke ❌


I hope this helps!

what kind of drunk is starscream?

My opinion? He’d probably be really self loathing, etc. Possibly prone to outbursts and generally being pissed, but he would never hurt anyone. Also, I don’t think anyone would really be around to see that anyway, considering I don’t think he’d drink in front of people.

i've spoken to some of my trans friends about this and they have varying views - is it ok to call sex between a trans man and cis woman or trans woman and cis man gay sex if they have the same genitalia? as a cis person, i would call it straight sex if i didn't know others' views as i wouldn't want to come across as transphobic/offend, but some of my trans friends say they would say it was gay sex & others say they would say it was straight sex. i was wondering what the mods opinions are?

I’d leave it up to the people involved to call it gay. If it’s sex between a man and a woman, regardless of genitalia, the default (out of respect for the genders of the trans people) is that it’s straight in the situations you described.

“and that’s why I’m trying the tour thing that I’m trying to get done.. I’m trying to make sure it’s something that I’m actually proud of and something that’s, like, a great unique experience for people”

I respect this. It’s always nice to see that money and fame and all that stuff didn’t change him for the worse. Also, I don’t think this is considered to be “shitting on other youtubers”, in fact it’s something to be proud of, there’s nothing wrong with talking about it and cherishing it, in my opinion! :D

When people portray Russel as Noodle’s only caretaker when she was young: 💤

When people portray Russel, Murdoc, and 2D as all stepping up to do their part to take care of young Noodle, influencing her and loving her in their own different and unique ways, each with their own strengths and weaknesses in raising her, ultimately aiding her in becoming a functional and independent adult through their differing approaches to nurturing that allowed Noodle to work through things with multiple different perspectives and experiences: ♥️♥️👀👌🏻👍🏽🙌🏾✨👨‍👨‍👧♥️♥️♥️♥️🎤🥁🎸🎸♥️♥️♥️

- Mint Yoongi

- Black hair Jimin (i.e. sin in human form)

- Fluffy brown Jungkook during Fire

- Blonde Seokjin (so everyone during Fire, basically)

- Pink haired Namjoon

okay but after I watched TFA and came out of it like “wait what was this bit about? And that bit, it made no sense? Why did Luke run off?” and so on, and everyone else was like “it’s a trilogy, it’ll be explained in the next movie, they can’t give all the answers away immediately, it’s called suspense, duh”

nonsense, wasn’t it? Because they don’t know. Rian Johnson, the guy who is making the next installment, doesn’t know the answers. Which means that JJ Abrams and everyone involved in TFA don’t know the answers. Because the only other option is that they know, and just decided not to tell the guy who’s making the next movie. Which would make them beyond idiotic, frankly, and I don’t for a moment think that’s what happened here.

So all that stuff in TFA that made no sense? That we didn’t know the reason for? It simply made no sense. The reason doesn’t exist. I didn’t miss it because I’m not a good enough fan. There aren’t any layers of meaning to it. They sent Luke to live on an island so he’d be out of the way and Leia would have a mission and the audience would have a mystery to ponder.

Rian Johnson might be able to salvage it all and invent reasons and explanations for it all, but those reasons and explanations will NOT be what JJ Abrams & Co had in mind when they made it happen.

So the reason why Luke does this out-of-character thing and runs away from his responsibilities? Eh, we don’t know. We just thought it’d be cool, or something.

And that just steals whatever little faith I had that maybe, maybe, they had something in mind when they did all the other stuff. Maybe there’s a good reason why Han and Leia broke up, and their kid went to the Dark Side, and Snoke showed up, and the Republic fell apart again, and so on and so forth. Except, y’know, as it stands… it looks to me like the reason was “because that’s what needs to happen so we can have a cool plot that resembles ANH so we can get maximum nostalgia money from the fans”. All that stuff that happened off-screen? Handwaved. Literally. These aren’t the thought-out reasons and motives you’re looking for. Move along.

“It’ll all make sense once you’ve seen the other movies! It’s not out of character! It’s not just an excuse to re-do ANH! It’s all happening for a reason, they’ve just not told us yet!”

Yeah, right.

protips for interacting with did/osdd fictives

• we do not see ourselves as “characters”. we are our own people, with our own lives, thoughts, and feelings outside of our “source” or “fandom”

• talking about our source can make us uncomfortable and fandom jokes will probably piss us off or make us uncomfortable

• seriously, unless you know us really well and weve openly joked about it, just play it safe and dont joke about it

• *PLEASE do NOT tell us that were your “favorite character from that series ohmigosh its so cool to meet you!!1!1!1”*

• we probably dont give a fuck who you “ship” us with from our source and its actually pretty fuckin uncomfortable/feels gross being told that my friends (or random fucking people i dont know) “ship” me with people who i considered to be friends or that i hated or was scared of, and is kind of insulting to our partners to boot

• as a rule of thumb, if you think itd be cringe-y/weird to say to a stranger on the street or even your favorite youtuber/celebrity, probably just dont say it??

• literally we just want to be treated like people

To be honest I don’t know, I found him in the wip folder, and I would love to lie to myself and the world that I will finish it but probably I won’t wah.
And since I like his face I decided to post it xD
I love Cas so much.

And since we are here, could you please help me with this thing? It’s just a question, and actually few people helped me aready… But I would love to hear your opinion, too! :D

Some fucking guy playing as a wizard tried telling me that paladins are useless. I was the only one in the group with a constitution modifier that was over +2. I'd love to see that group of a rogue, wizard, warlock, and bard try to make it without me.

No class is useless, especially not Paladins. Paladins are probably the only reliably overpowered class in every edition. Though a straight up Lawful Good Paladin can get boring sometimes, that’s just personal opinion.

It kinda rubs me the wrong way when people fight against fatphobia by saying “fat =/= unhealthy!!!! You can be fat and be healthier than a skinny person!” because like,, I guess it’s true,,, but heath doesn’t equal worth/validity,,,,, like even if I am unhealthy that doesn’t means I am less of a person, or somehow less deserving of love or respect. Like fat people don’t need to be healthy, we don’t owe anyone to be 100% healthy all the time always, we shouldn’t have to be uber healthy or skinny or anything to get respect and to be treated like we (and our opinions) are valid. Idk :/
