partial reblog

  • person: does 1 nice thing towards me
  • my cluster b ass: tells everyone, wants to be their best friend, thinks abt them all the time, would basically do anything for them (and by extension more attention), assumes they have a crush on me, probably develops a crush on them in return,
  • me, an autistic: I can't proceed until condition x is met
  • some allistic: but you don't need x to complete it. you can do it right now!
  • me, an autistic: ...you don't understand,
  • Me: I want queer kpop idols
  • Also me: I understand that although queer idols exist it must be extremely difficult to come out due to the extreme homophobia of not just South Korea but also many western countries and that even though many fans enjoy slash are actually very homophobic/transphobic and so if anyone were to come out they could not only face huge backlash but also the potential end of their career and possibly their entire group's career. I also understand that staying in the closet is whilst not enjoyable may be safer than being out so whilst there are currently few out queer idols I will continue to support and love all the closeted idols as not just celebrities but also my queer family and I hope they are all comfortable and happy. I also think that it is up to fans international or not to make fandom and life in general safer for not just queer idols but queer fans as well. We are all responsible for our words and actions and I hope that one day more idols will feel safe enough to be able to come out and show that queer people are everywhere and beautiful

to all my US magical thinking ocd pals - this is not your fault. apart from your vote, there is nothing you did or did not do that caused this. the results would have been the same whether you had stepped on that leaf or not, whether you had checked at a specific time or not. please don’t blame yourself.

屋漏痕 - Water Stains on the Wall - Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan 


“The title of the dance came from a conversation between two of the most respected calligraphers in China:


"Where do you get the inspiration for your calligraphy?” asked Yen Chen-ching, the great master of brush writing in Tang Dynasty (618 - 907).


"I observe summer clouds that resemble mountains with spectacular peaks,” replied the young Huai Su, who later became the most renowned calligrapher of the wild cursive style.


"How about water stains on the wall?” asked Yen Chen-ching.


"Right on!” exclaimed Huai Su.


In reality, water stains on the wall are the result of a long process of natural evolution, organic and unpretentious. The legend of the conversation established “water stains on the wall” as a popular metaphor that represents the highest state in the aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy. Lin Hwai-min and dancers take off from this metaphor and create an abstract work of beauty and magic that stands sublimely on its own.”



tbpdfw u need to have every personality trait ever and you need every personality type bc u need it u need to belong to all of them bc u really don’t fit into any single one bc whats a consistent personality??!?!?!

The entire discussion between @taraljc and @out-there-on-the-maroon about Len’s age and experiences is amazing

Go read it.

I particularly love the line about how Len’s childhood would have been similar the kids on Stranger Things because I think that’s tangible to a lot of younger viewers / writers when trying to place some of this in context.

Honestly, some of the things mentioned in the discussion herald my childhood too, being 25 now and being that the 90′s was this interesting transitional period for a lot of technology and society in general. And with me being approximately the same age as Barry (Grant is almost exactly year older than me), I think that Len would have some of these experiences or say some of these things and Barry can identify with except he’s like “wow I forgot how the world was when I was 6″ whereas for Len, that’s was how it was for his entire childhood until he was well into adulthood. 

Things like smoking indoors, smoking rooms even in hospitals, smoking in restaurants (I’m the child of two smokers, I recall this vividly), no microwaves, arcades and taking lunch money to school, what bullying looked like back then and the technologies that simply didn’t exist. Society has changed so much in the past 20 years, with globalization and mass communication spurring a lot of it. But the perspective of an adult vs. child during that transition is interesting.

Also love the mention that for Barry and Len, the age difference might not be so much to grasp as the socioeconomic / class difference. Barry’s father was a doctor in a nice, clean middle class neighborhood whereas Len’s father was a disgrace cop (if you still prescribe to what was said in The Flash 2x04) and a criminal and probably ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, so to speak, from a pretty young age. Even after Barry was taken into the West house, it’s still a gorgeous and big house in what seems to be a nice neighborhood. Their childhoods and experiences are vastly different in so many ways.

Anyway, I love all of this whole discussion that is happening. It’s not just about coldflash, it’s about these characters in general, and Len in contrast to… well, the entire younger generation in the entire DCCW universe.

Hello.

We are House Anachronism. 

There’re six of us (we think). Some of us already have tumblrs, but we wanted to have a place where we could post about system-related things. 

We’re not particularly likely to put up profiles - we like our privacy, and some of us are paranoid. But we’ll answer questions, if we feel like it. 

We’ll sign our posts, when we post. Anything unsigned can be assumed to be from all of us. 

Unlikely this will get used much, but it’s here.

(Admittedly, it’s also here partially so we can reblog things without chucking system stuff on various peoples’ mains)

Anyway, that’s us. 

@flightrisingunofficial
not to drag you - i just honestly wouldn’t advise reblogging partial drama/discussions that show up on your dash. DR lasted so long and was successful because the drama originated solely from their own content/submissions.

i’d clean your blog and start over on the right foot. because right now? it’s just people rolling their eyes on discord servers that you follow them and/or keep blogging old shit.

I really need new people to follow I’m sick of 5sos blogs so if you reblog only/partially:

  • Steven Universe
  • Adventure Time
  • American Horror Story
  • Marvel
  • Avengers
  • Captain America
  • Bucky Barnes
  • Twenty One Pilots
  • Bandom stuff
  • Supernatural
  • Doctor Who
  • Dogs
  • My Mad Fat Diary
  • Ed Sheeran
  • We Bare Bears
  • Memes/shitposts


PLEASE LIKE/REBLOG THIS SO I CAN FOLLOW YOU PLEASE

Addressing Blind/Partially Sighted Actors

Please reblog this in the hopes of reaching out to every blind/partially sighted person.

As a filmmaker, I write this in the hopes of learning more about blind people and where they stand on issues like this. 

I’ve only worked with one blind actor. He was amazing, and learned a lot from him. He mentioned that there is a similar issue of having sighted people play blind roles all the time. I have been focused on the deaf and hard of hearing community and making sure that they have acting opportunities because I have met so many deaf actors who are talented and are capable of anything. But it makes me wonder… what about blind people? What’s their situation?

When the time comes and I want to cast a blind person for a role, where do I look? And what do they feel about people who are partially sighted to play fully blind roles? Where do they stand? The most difficult to admit “what if” I have is that I am wondering– where can I find blind actors to fit roles that I might write before I meet them? What if there’s no one that fits the role that I wrote? 

This is also often an issue with deaf actors, but in my view, there’s usually someone who can fit a deaf role that is a deaf actor. I don’t know if it’s the same for the blind. 

From previous experience, I have learned not to presume that the same problems face different minority groups. This is why I keep the question open, instead of saying, “Oh, it must be the same, since deaf people have the same issues.” 

The truth is, no minority group faces the same issues. So, please, reblog this and share this with everyone you know who might know something. And please comment on this, if you know something.

I wonder if I’m that person for anybody.

@everyone reblogging my partial-birth abortion post

i’m really shocked that the pro-choice crowd here on tumblr is fine with Hillary voting against the partial birth abortion ban act. Partial birth abortions involve delivering the fetus except for its head, then killing it before it exits the womb and is technically ““alive.”“ These procedures are done after 19-20 weeks, when the unborn child could survive outside the womb easily.

And to address the strawman argument I know will come up:

Removing a dead fetus from a woman is not the same as aborting a live fetus and does not consitute a partial birth abortion.

The Supreme Court has also ruled that the terms “Partial Birth Abortion” and “Dilation and Extraction” are legally synonymous, so don’t give me any of that crap either.
