people are narrow minded

I hate when someone LGBT+ has homo- and transphobic parents and people are like ‘but!! try to see it from their point of view!! it must be so hard for them!! It’s only natural to react like this!! just think about what they’re going through!!’ Like fuck you I’m not going to feel bad for people who put their own narrow minded beliefs over the wellbeing of their own child. I don’t fucking care about their point of view. If you have such a hard time opening up your mind maybe there’s something wrong with you, not with your child.

@Lin_Manuel:

I don’t understand how people can be so narrow-minded. The world is your oyster. Be open to different interpretations and explanations.

Living Together!

Hey guys, so as many of you have seen or heard from someone else by now, Signe (Wiishu) and I are in fact living together at this moment. 

I’ve seen a lot of support from people all over social media where it was posted and that means a lot to us, I very much appreciate it. However I have also seen a lot of dislike for the situation being thrown around and needlessly so. Some people are mad that I even have a girlfriend, some are skeptical of everything happening and some even say it’s “blocking septiplier” 

First off yes, I have a girlfriend. I’m still a human and these things do happen, did some of you think I’d be single forever or just pretend to be for the sake of keeping up a front? I’ve always said I like to be honest and share and that’s what I’m doing. Expecting me to stay single is selfish and narrow minded, please don’t be one of those people. It’s OUR relationship and we make our own decisions in it, it’s not up for debate or negotiation. Some stuff in my life is not dictated by what viewers of my content think and that sounds douchey but you know what I mean. 

As for Signe stopping Septiplier from being real, that’s just completely and utterly ridiculous. Septiplier was never and never will be a real thing, the fact that I even have to make that clarification is beyond ridiculous too. Mark and I made it pretty obvious it was a joke or exaggeration from the get go and have said so again since. It’s perfectly fine to ship septiplier and post pics of Mark and I as septiplier (within reason of course, no smut) in fact I enjoy it cos mark and I are great friends but to say my current existing girlfriend is stopping a made up relationship from happening is both insulting and just flat out wrong. Again don’t feel you can’t post any septiplier stuff at ALL, that’s not what I’m getting at. Just that some stuff is beyond the limits of what I think is cool.

If you don’t like any of what’s happening that’s fine and it’s your right to feel however you want about it but don’t go posting publicly about it because all it does is make people involved feel bad and bring them down. Which is a real shitty thing to do. 

You guys know how nice I am and how I love you all and respect/appreciate everything you do but I also have to set boundaries and tell you when some stuff is not cool because that’s how this works, I”ve always said it’s a two way street and if this connection and interactivity has to continue and stay strong then this stuff needs to be said. 

I’m really sorry for the long post and I really hope it doesn’t sound too negative or like I’m ranting, there were just some thoughts on my mind and I would also appreciate if people didn’t spam the tag with “leave youtubers alone” or “respect youtuber’s relationships” etc. because that just goes overboard in the other direction. 

Signe and I are super happy together and moving in together is a HUGE deal, it’s a massive step and it’s a new thing to get used to. The last thing we need is people spreading doubt or rumours about our relationship adding extra stress that doesn’t need to exist. For those of you out there who are happy for us, we really appreciate it and it means a great deal to see the support. Will Signe be in videos at some point? who knows! We haven’t thought that far ahead yet and don’t want to do too much too soon.

AU Lena is being interviewed by a rude reporter who implies that she supports anti alien views like her family and keeps asking uncomfortable questions about Lillian and Lex, accusing her of working with them in secret. Kara accidently hears this while flying over National City and spontaneously decides to drop in and support her friend. So she flies to Lena’s office and starts ranting about how much Lena has done for the aliens in National City and how good she is and that noone should judge her by her family’s name. Then she goes to Lena, takes her hands and tells her that she shouldn’t ever listen to narrow-minded people like that reporter and that she can always count on Supergirl to stand up for her.

Bonus: The reporter thinks they’re dating and thinks it’ll be far more interesting to write about Supergirl dropping in to defend her girlfriend: “Supergirl to the rescue: How did Lena Luthor manage to make this superhero fall for her?”

smh we’re back to the good old days of s3 again, aren’t we?

people have started to already dehumanize even and make him a villain and become islamophobic and racist because clearly he has a past that involves muslim poc boys from the balloon squad, coupled with the fact that their biphobia is so transparent because even is bi/pan, that their insecure lil ass feels the need to label him as a serial cheater because they think even will cheat on isak causing evak to breakup, and the fetishizers can’t have that happen now, can they? otherwise what else will they wank and jerk off to and fantasize about?

i wanna know why some people feel the need to think in such a narrow minded way that “isak must be protected at all costs from all harm” and wrap him in cotton wool, but “it doesn’t matter if any other character gets hurts idgaf about them”. my buddy, then why are you even watching skam in the first place?

newsflash: skam isn’t all about isak. skam is an ensemble cast show. y'all treat even with such disrespect and disregard him, and have become downright ableist in doing so too, by not giving a single fuck that he has bipolar disorder.

it pisses me off when i read stupid shit like “as long as my isak doesn’t get hurt by even or the balloon squad!”, “as long as even doesn’t get hurt by sana and the balloon squad (notice how they LEAVE OUT isak here … so isak can get hurt by even, but even can’t get hurt by isak? mhmm sure jan!)”, “i will riot if evak break up they need to be together 5eva!!!”.

because? i hate to break it to you son, but, they are gonna get hurt. a lot of people in this are gonna get hurt. it’s disgusting how dimissive people are to anyone else getting hurt though, as long as their white gay ship is all smiles and happy go lucky. y'all can’t stand the other characters, especially when those characters are poc muslims connected to even with a backstory to tell about him and his past (which, around dec 2016/jan 2017 all y'all were THIRSTING over), and how those poc muslim boys, especially mikael and yousef, were hurt and upset just like how even was, by whatever went down.

as long as y'alls agenda of seeing evak pda-ing, seeing them be horny teens, seeing them make out against windowsills, seeing them kissing here and kissing there, is met, y'all are fine. lol, as soon as that agenda isn’t met, and we finally get to see them as individual characters, which they are first and foremost, with a rich history and connections with other people, hmmm, suddenly y'all are feeling “a little bit 👀 uncomfortable 👀”?

lol. this season has bought out all the ugliness these people harbour. you know what y'all are? let me tell you what y'all are:

islamophobic.
racist.
ableist.
biphobic.
fetishizers.

and all y'all can literally gtfo of this fandom tbh. we don’t need y'alls “thirst” and ugliness lurking, anyway.

June 11th, 1964 (Sheraton Hotel, Sydney): Paul makes himself known during a question on the authorship of In His Own Write, and John makes himself known during a question on their choice of holiday companions. 

Q: John, did you entirely write your book or were you given help? Did you actually write all of it?

JOHN: No, I mean – who’s gonna help you with a thing like that? [laughter] No, if I write… People are getting ghost writers for novels and things.

PAUL: [aside] Tch, tch – John! John!

JOHN: Oh, he – well, I wrote in the beginning, [Paul] wrote the intro and helped with a couple of the stories. He was only mentioned on one because they forgot. [laughter] But that’s all.

Q: Paul, you won’t mind us asking you this question, I’m sure. We read that there was some adverse comment in England about a couple of you fellas taking the girls on a holiday. How did you react to this? What did you think of this – what’s your point of view? People here would like to know.

PAUL: “Narrow-minded.” [pause] Is what I thought. That’s all I can say.

JOHN: The thing is, they either go out with girls and get talked about, or don’t and get talked about more, don’t they? [uproarious laughter; cheers] Thank you!

A friend posted this. I don’t know the source [edit: thanks to @cynicalcripplepunk I now know this was originally posted by @candidlyautistic. I hope you don’t mind this, Candidly. Folk, please check out the original blog]. I figured a lot of you would enjoy it. While I’m mainly tagging this for autism, it works for other conditions too.

I don’t yet feel like I have a community of ‘penguins’ to love as I’ve met too many narrow-minded autistic people among the decent and open-minded ones. I think that, autistic or not, people tend towards mannerisms and thought processes I can’t abide. It’s not the differences between non-autistic people and autistic people I find weird, it’s the similarities.

I hope one day I’ll get the feeling of belonging to “The Tribe” so many autistic individuals speak of. I hope I’ll find many penguins to love and I hope loving sparrows becomes easier. So far, the sparrows and penguins I allow in my life for any real length of time are wonderful. I don’t see them much or get out but when I do, they look out for me.

And my own late diagnosis has mostly felt the same. I’m no longer unaware of why I am me. I’ll be going to see the doc about this comorbid ADHD possibility because of the research I’ve been doing. If it turns out the specialists agree, I’ll know there are parts to my “being a penguin” which make it difficult to get by and there’s possible treatment so I can waddle about easier, on my terms.

I don’t know how to summarise this.

SENDING MARK HATE

OH MY GOD IM SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THE PEOPLE SENDING MARK HATE BECAUSE OF HIS ‘RESPECT’ VIDEO.

DO YOU THINK MARK UPLOADED THAT JUST TO GET VIEWS? ARE YOU THAT NARROW-MINDED? IT JUST SHOWS THAT PEOPLE WHO HATE MARK FOR RESPECTING FELIX IN A PERSONAL LEVEL IS IMMATURE. 

NONE OF US KNOW FELIX PERSONALLY. BUT MARK DOES. HE JUST DEFENDED HIS FRIEND. BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW MUCH OF A GOOD PERSON IS FELIX. 

PLEASE STOP THE HATE AND RESPECT BUT PEOPLE LIKE YOU, WHO SEND HATE, DOESN’T DESERVE ANY RESPECT. PLEASE GET OUT AND HAVE A FUCKING LIFE. 

i am so happy seeing all the love chris wood is getting from the tvd fandom. to all the unreasonable hate he’s been getting from many of the supergirl fandom, the mon-el haters, and supercorp haters, he deserves all the happiness and praise coming his way.

what’s so funny about all this is that he’s coming back to the vampire diaries as a guest star in a role where he’s a murderous villain and still get so much support while he’s in supergirl as a series regular and constantly get hate for playing an extremely flawed character just simply finding his way.

chris wood is such an amazing actor and the supergirl fandom doesn’t realize how lucky we are to have him. there was once a time when this fandom wasn’t this toxic and abusive and it’s so dissapointing to see such immature and narrow-minded people not realizing the very big difference between an actor and a character.

mon-el is a character. chris wood plays mon-el. you hate mon-el? you hate karamel? okay, fine, but don’t hate chris wood for it. stop calling him names. stop going out of your way to threaten him. stop sending him nasty messages. your hatred will never amount to his success.

and with the numerous hate floating all around the world (politically, mostly), nobody gives a flying shit about your whining over a fictional character or things not going your way for your ship.

and speaking of ships, i would just like to remind everyone that people can like what they like and you have no right to tell them not to.

stop spreading so much hate and give love instead! heaven knows how bad we need it.

Mystic Messenger: Korean Phrases/Translations Clarification

After browsing the “Mystic Messenger” tag on Tumblr, I’ve just wanted to clear some possible confusion or misunderstandings about certain phrases the characters use that arose from the translation.

1. Did you eat?
When we use this phrase in Korean (informally: 밥 먹었어?) we sometimes do mean the literal translation of “Did you eat?” However, most of the time we don’t literally mean to ask if you ate or not nor are we usually interested in what you actually ate unless we specify. This is more of a phrase similar to the English “How are you?” The phrase “Did you eat?” is just a way to check up on someone’s wellbeing or how someone is doing.

2. Zen’s real name (Hyun Ryu/류현)
I wasn’t sure if I had to clarify this but I saw some fan-made content spelling his name as “Hyunryu” or “Hyun-ryu.” Zen’s first name is just Hyun (현) while his last name is Ryu (류), so in the Western style of first name-last name, his full name would be Hyun Ryu, while in the Korean style with the family name first, it would be Ryu Hyun (류현). I understand the confusion about this since his name is only one character while most Korean names are two characters. (Actually this isn’t rare or anything as I have plenty of friends with one character names)

3. Zen’s “babe”
Haha this translation was comical and slightly awkward for me. In the game, every time Zen refers to you as babe, honey, sweetie, etc, in Korean he is actually referring to you as “jagi” or 자기. This is actually a very fond and endearing way of referring to someone or of saying “you” (basically, the same thing as the Japanese “anata”) For example, my parents call each other jagi. This expression is usually so endearing that not all non-married couples refer to each other this way. Personally, I’ve never called someone or been called jagi before but I know some friends who call their significant others jagi even though they’re not married so in the end it’s just preference and how lovey-dovey you are. In my opinion the most accurate English translation for this word or phrase is “dear” or “honey” although there is no 100% proper English translation of this word/phrase as the English language does not have different ways of referring to people based on your relationship with them. In any case, “babe” is fine too but I just wanted to clarify that what he actually says has a more fonder and deeper undertone. However, even in the early phone calls in the Common Route, Zen still refers to you as “jagi” sometimes even though you’re not in any romantic relationship yet so my initial impression of him was “Wow this guy is a total flirt.” ^^;;

4. “Lovely Zen”
I started playing the game in English first because that was the default setting for my game and I didn’t know you could change the language to Korean until later on, so when the option came up to call Zen “Lovely Zen” or “Zenny Zen” I was kind of flustered because it kind of sounded so awkward. You wouldn’t actually call someone “Lovely ______” in real life, right? But after I changed my game language to Korean, it all made sense. Every time a nickname for Zen comes up, you are actually calling him oppa or Zen-oppa (오빠/젠오빠). I’m sure if you’re even a little bit interested in Korean culture, you would already know that this is either a way for a female to call a male that’s older than her, or for a younger female to call her older boyfriend. In the latter, romantic sense, this term is also pretty endearing but definitely not as deep as “jagi.” For example, my ex-boyfriend was one year older than me so technically I should have called him oppa or (his name)-oppa. However, since we both live in America, it’s not that enforced and I didn’t really like calling him oppa casually since I’m used to calling my older male cousins oppa so it was just weird for me. Still, sometimes if I wanted to cheer him up or something and I called him oppa, then I remember he would get really happy and kind of embarassed, just like how in one of the chats, Zen said he felt his heart skip a beat one of the first times you called him “Lovely Zen.”

This last thing is just my opinion so I hope people don’t take too much offense or see me as narrow-minded.

5. In fan-made content: “nii-san” or “baka” (형, 바보)
I love Mystic Messenger so any fanart or imagines I see, I love looking at and reading them but when I see English comics or short stories of the Choi twins and Seven says something like “Listen to nii-san” to Saeran or of one of the RFA members calling someone else “baka”, it’s just a little strange for me. Remember, all the characters in this game are Korean so instead of “nii-san,” they would say “hyung (형)” and instead of “baka” they would say “babo (바보).” If the content was originally in Japanese, then I would understand using nii-san or baka but if the content is originally in English I think it would be nice if they portrayed the characters as sticking to their roots and using the proper Korean terms. Mystic Messenger is not an anime and is not related to Japan at all >.<

If you read everything, as always 감사합니다~^^

What made you realize you loved/shipped Dramione? ✨💕😋

Well, the short story is that somewhere in the midst of book six I fell in love with Draco Malfoy. I was a pretty young teenager when it came out, so I will admit that I definitely had (and continue to have) a soft spot for the arrogant bad boy put in a Life-Alteringly Difficult Situation. The Sectumsempra incident was a huge, huge moment for me; it was the first major instance of Harry not being totally a well-intentioned hero, and I immediately (and excitedly) buckled my seatbelt for a Draco Redemption Tour that unfortunately never came - at least not from Joanne herself. 

With that, though, here’s the thing: I do like Drarry. I think that canonically HBP sets a very convincing foundation for Drarry. But I LOVE Dramione, and it’s because it’s a combination of two people who are canonically extremely intolerable human beings.

Pause to let that sink in, lol.

Harry is an innately likable guy. He’s friendly and funny and he seems pretty popular with his peers when he’s not yelling about Voldemort still being alive or appearing to set snakes on people. But you know who isn’t inherently very likable? Draco and Hermione. Draco’s a conceited, prejudiced little snot whose life happens to take a dramatically darker turn, leaving him the capacity to make some decisions for himself for conceivably the first time in his life. Hermione’s a somewhat narrow-minded nag who notoriously dislikes people and things for not fitting within her concepts of what is or isn’t valuable (see: her thoughts on Luna, her opposition to Divination, her general attitude towards Fred and George) but who loves who she loves with an undeterrable fierceness. In the end, I honestly just find it fun to watch two people with such markedly flawed edges discover the things about each other that are worth investing in - and I never, ever get tired of making that happen.

Oh, and also - Draco literally got all of his Dumbledore murder ideas from obsessively listening to Hermione. If that’s not love …

Me: Please just make some normal black characters in TV shows and movies who are full human beings to help change representation and expand people’s narrow-minded views.

Media: I know lets make another series where black people have the lower hand and it’s back when racism is legal and rampant that will be edgy and sad because they’re suffering and being treated like garbage but still not change anything in present day. Our white actors will just get to torment our black actors who will have to act out being abused and taking shit. White audiences will get to feed off the sadness and POC will get to be bombarded with reminders about how shitty they’re treated and have been treated for centuries by watching people that look like themselves be tormented, murdered and assaulted and overall wronged. It’s just so healing and therapeutic right.

Me: It’s still like that you fucks.  

im still so fucking bitter i mean in the lgbp community specifically its super common to have a somewhat fucked up relationship to sex (just look at that article about gay loneliness, the statistics in it and the stir it created in the community), and the ace community sounds in theory like a great place to have these difficult conversations about how sometimes we use sex like self medication and fuck up the way we experience intimacy and connections to other gay and bi folks. like what does it mean to experience sexual attraction when youve got a couple of years of experience w regular sex parties? or risky sex? or when compulsory heterosexuality has fried your brain to the point when you dont even know what genuine attraction feels like??

but no of course not we get the term ‘allo’ instead and have to listen to people regurgitate homophobia from the 60s, jokes about HIV and how lesbians are narrow-minded, and straight cis people ‘’’’reclaiming’’’’ the q slur. im so fucking bitter oh my god
