people just liked it better that way

anonymous asked:

unpopular opinion: zoe murphy deserved better and she was definitely traumatized by connor (however connor is incredibly complex and mentally ill and this is in no way demonizing him)

unpopular opinion: yeah tbh

i feel like people either demonize zoe or connor, why cant we all just love them both?? they’re both complex characters let’s just,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lov them

I just wanted to thank everyone that came to talk to me today. And I wanted you guys to show how much you love Chris. We can see that how he’s handling the show now it’s different from before, he seems to act as the amazing professional he is but I don’t think he’s happy anymore.
I never thought things would turn out this way. I never cried as much as I did today, I cried because I’ve seen people saying the most hateful kind of stuff, I cried because Chris deserves so much better other than pathetic people that don’t respect his job, I cried because Katie must have been super uncomfortable with what happened, and because of what this fandom has become.
I never, ever felt so disgusted with something as am I do with this fandom now. I never felt like everyone was just so mean and spiteful.
I just want to thank, thought, some people that made this more tolerable for me. People that I love with everything that I have: @karadavers (you were the first blog I found Karamel related and I was so, so, so happy to find someone that shipped the same thing I did, and I wanted to tell you that you are amazing, strong and one of the most amazing people I’ve met here). @actualpuppychriswood and I so proud and happy for you, for how you handle depression and for how amazing you are. We never talked but I just wanted you to know I admire your strength). @busysciencegeek (you know why I love you hahah, although sometimes I don’t due to sc), but I thank whatever God out there because you are a small beam that must be protected and I’m happy we got to meet and become friends). @gldngrl7 (thank you for amazing analysis about him, for your insights and for how open you are about anything), @winelover1989 (your sass give me life and I will read your fics lol), @karadanversprince (I love you and I love how you love Anastasia. I’m here for you whenever you need it, never forget that). @karamelizedlove (you are a ray of sunshine babe, thanks so much for making me smile), @reddragonlilly7 (we never talked much but you were there when I needed it so thank you so much), @emarasmoak (you are my God’s of fics haha, I love how you care for others and I will always be grateful for it), @thoughtsfromaclutteredbrain (thank you, thank you, thank you for everything! You helped me so much you have no idea). @zorelsmendler (omg you are my small bunny and I love you so much), @mon-kai-el (you give me life), @lena-lipbite-luthor (I don’t think I ever thanked you enough for reaching me and for how much trouble it must have been for you to find me, or for how you proved me that we could bound over something. Thank you so much, there are no words I can use to describe how thankful I am for you), @ylvalev (we never talked much but you always managed to make me smile, so thanks for that). If I forgot anyone forgive me.
You guys were my rock, and you guys are strong, brave, amazing people. I love you guys

It’s a question GAME!!!

I’m going to say that people are allowed to NOT like certain outfits!!! Just like people are allowed to like certain outfits! No one gets a “I’m the better fan, I understand him better”-badge for it! As long as everyone states their opinion in a respectfull way, everyones opinion is legit!!!

All him, all on stage! Everyone can pick their favorite and express it!

Well if you wanna avoid the discourse you better stop drawing Taako green pretty fucking soon. You're just asking for people to get upset with you by doing that.

i can Not really tell what your tone is with this but if things go the way they usually do my designs for everyone are going to gradually morph into weird muppet creatures anyway

meandering-monotreme  asked:

the thing about the box-checking ask is that while "it's just box-checking" COULD mean is "I want better representation" it almost always REALLY means "I'm a racist jerk who hates representation, but I want people to THINK that I'm the first guy" so while "saheeli should be more than just a box-check" may be a valid point, that is not an acceptable way of making the point

I would agree that it’s very hard to tell what someone means by that argument, which is why it bothers me. It COULD be someone well meaning, but is far more likely someone upset (whether they’ll admit it or not) about who or what the character is than that they didn’t get much characterization. You can usually tell because they’ll never complain about white and/or male characters who lack characterization. It’s usually just a short step away from the “pandering” argument. I’m very careful with the word racist, though. There is a very wide range there, and outside of the extremes people tend to stop listening if you call them that. It’s almost always more productive to talk about it as coming from a place of ignorance. After all, I was that guy once!

Personally, I feel new Planeswalkers need about two features to really feel fleshed out as side characters. That used to happen a lot before the main story hit the web, looking back at Domri Rade, Ashiok, etc. Even Arlinn Kord had two, despite not being tied to the main plot at all. Maybe Saheeli suffered from the shorter block story, maybe there were other factors, but whether she was an Indian woman or not, she didn’t get enough spotlight for a Planeswalker.


anonymous asked:

Hi! I just finished reading bones and I really really loved the story. I love how you worked it out! But idk if it's just me but I didn't really like the mc character. In my honest opinion I dont think she should have ended up with either of them because I just thought she was really selfish and poor Hobi deserved someone way better .Regardless it was really beautifully written and I really enjoyed the story!The characterization of all of them was great. I'm looking forward to reading more stuff

That’s fine you think that way! I feel like people read situations differently. You’re correct, the Oc was selfish, but in her defence she had no clue Hoseok was in love with her. Their sexual relationship was built on the premise of friends with benefits, she didn’t know any different, especially because she was so caught up with her feelings for Yoongi.
If anything, Hoseok was selfish too. He knew about her feeling for Yoongi, but still decided he would try to change her mind and try to fix her. He probably should have been honest straight away (but obviously it wouldn’t have worked out quite well…), instead he decided to have his “selfish” moments with her when she knew nothing of his real feelings. They were best friends, who was she to know any different?
Bones was a story of characters that were all flawed—just like real life. No one is perfect. Good people make mistakes; it doesn’t mean they are evil and shouldn’t be given a second chances or a happy ending. In my head the Oc had every right to act the way she did. She was confused and conflicted, but she knew her feelings for Hoseok in the end were more than just friendship. Sometimes the right guy is right under your nose, you just never realised!
It was Hoseok’s decision entirely to give her a chance and let her fall in love with him properly… and he picked to do so.
I understand that I probably have a soft spot for my characters, as I make them up in my head and understand every thought and feeling they have (even if I don’t end up writing them all down lol.) I also understand that when it’s the Oc, it’s easier for people to see their bad side because you have no affinity towards her. With Bts’ characters it’s different because we already know them as real life people. It’s easier to forgive them for mistakes in fiction for that :’)
I think everyone in Bones was selfish in their own way: Oc, Hoseok and Yoongi. But for me, that just makes for more complex reading. I hate writing painfully perfect characters. Everyone has their selfish side!

Thank your for reading, I honestly love messages like these because I get to debate lol. It’s interesting seeing other people’s views on my fics and how different people read in between the lines. I find it really interesting, and in this story a lot of people were torn with my ending. Maybe Oc should have ended up alone, maybe she should have forgiven Yoongi and given him a second chance, maybe Hoseok should have been left heartbroken and then ultimately moved on… In my mind, Oc and Hoseok were always going to end up together :’)

anonymous asked:

I think Pippa doesn't deserve all the hate people are using against her, she's a rich high society girl who wanted the best for her big day - just like everyone - and she had it. I don't like the Middletons, I don't like Kate, Pippa and their mother but I have to say the wedding was perfect. Stylish but classy, better than most of the royal weddings we are used to. Carl Philip wedding was a bit sloppy compared to it, in my opinion.

The wedding looked beautiful but I cant stand the way that it was handled and covered by the press. They hired the Beckhams former PR person to manage the wedding and not only that, but it would seem like they got a lot of freebies for the publicity. And then they used Prince Harry and Meghan to generate interest (the whole will she wont she attend thing). No one was that interested in the wedding then it came out that they got a PR person and suddenly it was everywhere. If they wanted their wedding to be private, it would have been private. 

anonymous asked:

Just wanted to say I think your interpretation of the TR folks is perfectly valid. Also I think it makes sense for them and most of the people in the first couple books to be white (or at least light-skinned) because one of the things WoT does is examine and subvert tropes that were popular at the time, and what better way than to lead everyone to assume everyone would be white and then flip that with like half the cultures in the series?

Hi Anon, thanks for the ask!

At this point I’m not even mad at the Critical Anon, I’m just disappointed haha. Because like, it’s good to question and poke holes in the media we consume. There are important discussions to be had about assumptions and representation. But Anon didn’t even attempt to discuss anything; they just seemed convinced they had the one truth of the matter. And that’s not a useful or healthy way to try and convince someone of your point of view.

But yeah it’s interesting to me that the first book has such an old-school, Arthurian fantasy vibe to it and then *surprise* we have all these other cultures! I’m really glad Jordan revealed that his world is a rich tapestry and not a monochrome canvas.

To Those Who May Need It

I know that the world isn’t perfect. In fact, the world is pretty fucked up most of the time. I know that things may not be ideal, or may not be going your way. Things might be shit right now. Things might be the absolute worst they’ve ever been. Things might seem like they won’t ever get better. It might seem like you’re drowning in this sea of darkness. You may feel sad. You may feel angry. You may feel lost. Or maybe you don’t feel anything at all. Maybe you feel nothing. And maybe that’s the worst part of it all.
But you have to listen. You have to believe me that things will get better. Things won’t stay like this for all eternity. Even though it may not always be apparent, there are people that care about you. And there are people here willing to listen. You are not alone. You’re not the only one feeling the way that you feel. You are not hopeless. There are so many that care for you and so many who are willing to help. You just have to reach out a hand. You have to speak up. As hard as it might be, as daunting as that decision may feel, you have to take that chance. You may feel alone but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can get better. You can be happy again. And there is someone out there who is willing to help. There is someone there who is willing to listen and guide you. Please don’t give up. You can do this. You are strong and you are brave and you can fucking get past this. I believe in you. It sounds like bullshit because I’m just some dude that makes videos on the internet who’s spewing words onto a Tumblr post at midnight. But here I am. I’m on that list of people who believes in you. It’s not an empty list. We need to be here for each other. We need to listen and reach out to each other and be there to catch each other when we’re at our lowest. You all have helped me more than you will ever know. And I’m glad that I may be able to help you out a tiny bit too. I just want you to know that you can get past this. You are not alone. There are people here for you. You can do this.

Please don’t give up.

there is a folk belief that in order for harm to occur, there must be an individual to blame. this is what it tastes like: people wouldn’t be poor if they worked harder, have you tried getting your degree, what’s your work history, if you didn’t have nice things. he wouldn’t have had that happen to him if he hadn’t hit on her, men like that anyway, he should have just punched her. she should have learned karate, she was a bitch anyway. if he hadn’t put his hand in his pocket and just listened to the cops he’d be alive. listen if she hadn’t struggled she would be alive. if people were better at taking care of themselves they wouldn’t have preexisting conditions, they wouldn’t get sick, they would be able to afford their health insurance. 

eyes watch you with hissing voices. well, did you try my way? they ask. yes, you did, and it didn’t work. well you’re not trying hard enough, in my time we just.

watch for it. watch for the way the blame shifts. it keeps the power at the top, angry and red.

[ May is BPD ( Borderline Personality Disorder ) awareness month & I wanted to drop this here, for my followers to see.

Why am I posting this, you might ask ? Yes. I HAVE BPD. I’ve had it for at least 10 years in various levels of severity. BPD isn’t the only personality disorder nor mental disorder I have either, & I am not scared to say it.

BPD awareness is close to my heart. I try to make sure I tell to every single person I plan to become a closer friends with that I have this disorder & ask them to try to understand me the best they can. Hell, I sometimes don’t even understand myself… Because of this ( these ) disorders I have always been more or less misunderstood & I have never really “fit the norm” how people should behave. I just… Didn’t understand how emotions work, like many other BPD sufferers. I didn’t know how to voice them out in other way than anger or over-reacting that stems from neglect I had to endure ever since I was a toddler — that is how I learned to survive in the middle of abuse. I am not saying this as an “understand me because I am a special snowflake”, no, everyone should TRY TO UNDERSTAND each other REGARDLESS.

How can you become better at understanding us ? By listening. By asking us questions & not second guess. Educate yourself on the subject if you have a friend, a family member or anyone close to you that suffers from BPD. Or educate yourself even if you don’t, the more knowledge the better.

Now to the stigmas. I am sick & tired of people stigmatizing ANYTHING & I want to debunk these from my personal perspective. Sometimes we do it without even realizing it, stigmatizing… Which we should try our best to break free from.

I am not selfish. I have too many things I need to deal with every day, I might not be the best person to put other people’s needs first as well as someone that isn’t dealing with extreme mood swings that can last from literally 15 SECONDS to couple of hours. I do care about you. I just sometimes don’t have the strength to carry both of our burdens.
I am not manipulative —- I just don’t know how to voice my strong emotions right without sounding hostile or pushy.
I am not an attention seeker. Once again, I just don’t know how to voice my emotions out early enough before I’ve bottled everything up, then everything just explodes because I become so overwhelmed & it seems like I am making the situation a horrible shit storm of drama.
I am not treatment resistant — I thought I was, but my medications are set & suit me. I attend therapy & have been for 1.5 years & it helps. I do not abuse alcohol, drugs or sex, I am actively combating self harm & suicidalness every single day. I will never be cured, but I will be better.
Only thing in this list I can agree with is BPD people being difficult because being difficult is SUBJECTIVE. We as humans don’t have an “one size fits all” base for our tolerance — all of us tolerate certain things to certain extents.

I am not a monster.

Unless you really know me & we have a mutual understanding between each other you have NO RIGHT to stigmatize me or say what kind of a person I am. So many people start to abuse me & tell how horrible person I am because I am behaving in a certain way because I just don’t know better. I don’t know how else to behave. & I know it’s wrong if I behave badly, I am not perfect. But you still have no right to verbally abuse me. Hell, you have no right to do that to ANYONE.

My disorders do not determine me. My disorders are not ME.

These stigmas just make everything worse, for everyone. These stigmas surrounding us make us BPD sufferers AFRAID to admit we have BPD. We are AFRAID to seek for help. We’re AFRAID to even talk about the subject in any way & we keep suffering, feeling alone in this hellhole of a world that might never understand us.

Don’t succumb to the stigma. Don’t be afraid of someone with BPD, some of us suffer in silence & struggle internally, some of us voice our emotions out in a very immature way, we’re not all the same. Imagine someone whose most outer layer of skin has been peeled completely off. You are red & raw, even a soft breeze of wind hurts. Even the smallest touch can make anyone SCREAM from pain. That is what BPD emotions are like. We know how we behave is not right, but we most of the time can’t help it. We learned these ways to behave from trauma — we had to do SOMETHING to survive & now we are stuck with a certain way of behavior, a survival method that might get triggered by even the smallest things. We feel like we are in serious danger & we need to defend ourselves at least somehow. We know how we have learned to survive doesn’t work anymore, some of us are in so much better place than we were before but we just can’t break free without professional help or dedicated self treatment, such as Mindfulness, yoga & meditation.

Not all of our bad behaviors are BPD based, but it’s very likely most of them are. You don’t need to understand us, just at least try to.

We are not perfect. You aren’t perfect either. We all make mistakes, some just more than others. Deep down inside we are just like you. We are human, we are flawed & we feel emotions. We are trying our best to be “normal” & not hurt anyone.

For other BPD sufferers — there is hope. Someone loves you. & you should love yourself, too.

This has been a PSA. Thank you for reading. Thank you for trying to understand. ]

Wolfgang & Sun

  • They’ll kill for survival, but they’ll DIE for their loved ones
  • They don’t smile much, but when they do, it comes from PURE happiness
  • I was SO HAPPY to see so much interactions between Sun and Wolfgang happened in this season – I loved this pair since Christmas special when they had this whole “if you need help” “I’m fine. If you need some air” “I’m good” then * both smirk * scene
  • There are so many things Sun and Wolfgang share in common
  • Both are the quiet ones in the cluster; they are badasses; and THEY DESERVE PEACE & HAPPINESS – and LOVE!
  • They might be strong on the outside, but they have soft heart inside; and that sometimes make these two people blame themselves for what they’ve done
  • Their mothers loved them; their fathers…one was abusive and the other was ignorant; and their other family members (like Steiner and Joong Ki) just couldn’t leave them in peace
  • One thing they don’t share in common, other than their fighting style, is that when Sun needs help, she asks for help. Whereas Wolfgang would NEVER, EVER ask for help – even when he’s being captured and tortured by Whispers
  • I really hope that in the end, both Sun and Wolfgang find their own peace (except rest-in-peace bullshit, I won’t allow it)

Favorite moments in season 2 (spoilers!)

2x02 Who Am I?

Originally posted by warinfinities

– I like that when they’re visiting each other, neither of them says ‘hi’ or ‘what’s up?’ Instead they just simply have a short eye contact and that’s it. The zoo scene sums up Sun and Wolfgang’s relationship. And we love this quiet-yet-we-know-each-other-by-just-looking-at-one’s-eyes. PERFECTION

– Not just from this scene, but most conversations between Sun and Wolfgang are short, very straightforward & concise…and that’s what makes their dynamic so real and sincere because we know both characters share a deep connection through their unspoken pain

2x03 Obligate Mutualisms


– OK, I love Sun just the way she is. But I absolutely love her when she embodies Wolfang. Two words; and her level of being badass just exploded there. Hats off to Doona’s perfect portrayal of Wolfgang/Max

2x07 I Have No Room In My Heart For Hate


– In graveyard scene, everyone from the cluster talks to her from their heart…from their experience. What differentiates Wolfgang from rest of them is he’s the only one who says ‘the world would be better without’ people like Joong Ki and Wolfgang’s father. Revenge is a double-edged sword. It’s bittersweet. And Wolfgang has already had a taste of revenge..several times. However, I don’t think sweetness of revenge or his skepticism about justice are entire reasons why he says it. I think it’s because deep down he knows Sun is stronger than she thinks; strong enough to not only make Joong Ki pay for her father’s death but also take in the bitterness of revenge

2x08 All I Want Right Now Is One More Bullet (1)


– YES! YES! YES! A thousand times YES! THAT SMIRK IS EVERYTHING! I don’t we need more explanation to this, at all * drops mic *

2x08 All I Want Right Now Is One More Bullet (2)


– OMG. Did they literally finish each other’s sentence? OH YES THEY DID! * drops mic, again *

2x07 I Have No Room In My Heart For Hate & 2x09 What Family Actually Means


– This is not an interaction between them, but I really wanted to go over this little parallel scenes. Another thing I love about Sun and Wolfgang is they don’t use their strengths to bully someone or to just show off. They use them to protect their loved ones when they are treated like shit by shitty people not nicely

2x11 You Want A War?


– I know I didn’t include “I would” in Gala scene. Doesn’t mean I don’t like it; it’s just kinda goes along with what I’ve written in graveyard scene. I didn’t want to be redundant. But yeah, I liked that scene too: Wolfgang in gangsta mode walking by Sun’s side while others are trying to stop her XD

– But back to the point, I personally like this scene more simply because I love when Wolfgang shows his gentle and caring side of him towards his cluster. Like when he cared for Will [x]. Also, we don’t really get to see Sun being afraid a lot (I mean of course, she’s a warrior), so it was kinda good to see her being weak and vulnerable for a moment but then quickly regaining her calmness after her cluster reassures she’s going to be fine. It shows how much Sun trusts her cluster; and how much her cluster cares for her (PLATONIC LOVE RIGHT HERE PEOPLE!)

I would say most interactions between Wolfgang and Sun happened during ‘sharing’ – resulting great action sequences, which also proves (again) that these two are not talkers; they’re fighters. Maybe that’s why they make an awesome pair!

evidence that david wymack is the best character in this entire series, part ii

part i

The Raven King

  • Wymack didn’t care if he had nine Foxes or twenty-five. He’d stand behind them until the bitter, bloody end.
  • “Last I checked Andrew doesn’t like you,” Wymack said.
    • “He still doesn’t,” Neil said, but he didn’t bother to explain.
    • “Interesting.”
  • “Abby wrote me a speech to give you this afternoon. It sounded nice, had lots of stuff about courage and loss and coming together in everyone’s time of need. I tore it up and tossed it in the trash can beside my desk.”
  • Wymack cleared his throat and scratched a hand through his short hair. “Look. Shit happened. Shit’s going to keep happening. You don’t need me to tell you life isn’t fair. You’re here because you know it isn’t.”
  • “I want you on the court in light gear in five minutes or I’ll sign you all up for a marathon.”
  • “I don’t pay for electricity in this place so you can stand around and gossip.”
  • “Andrew Joseph Minyard, what the flying fuck have you done this time?”
  • “Answers now, Aaron,” Wymack said.
    • “I don’t know,” Aaron said.
    • “My ass you don’t.”
  • They were all on time, but Wymack and Abby were conspicuously absent.”
  • “Get your gear and get out of my locker room.”
  • He looked the other way because he knew how badly some of them needed their escapes to survive.
  • It was apparently better to be uncomfortable but safe than to trust a stranger with his fractured team.
  • “Last I checked this was a team meeting, not a gossip circle.”
  • “If any of you so much as look at the Terrapins on your way past their benches I’ll let you walk home from here.”
  • “Some people are just hardwired to be stupid.”
  • Neil had never seen Wymack smile like this. It was small but fierce, as angry as it was proud.
  • “Why did you pay for stalls, Coach?”
    • Wymack lifted one shoulder in a shrug. “Maybe I knew you’d need them one day.”
  • Nicky pulled the window down to yell insults, but Wymack threatened him into silence.
  • Wymack pulled a bottle of vodka out of the bag and put it down beside Kevin. “You have ten seconds to inhale as much of this as you can. I’m timing you. Go.”
  • Wymack turned on Neil. “Did you or did you not tell me you weren’t going to start a fight?”
  • “What can I do?” Wymack asked.
    • …”I don’t know,” Neil said.
    • “When you know, tell me.”
  • “Go forth,” Wymack told his Foxes. “Have fun. Or don’t. I don’t care. Just no more fighting, you got me?”
  • “Andrew spent that night here with me. At first I figured he was mad at Kevin for lying to him, but he was more worked up about you.”
  • “I didn’t ask for an apology, wiseass.”
  • Wymack stared at him for an endless minute, then said too quietly, “The fuck did you just say to me?”
  • “He chose to cross a line. You didn’t. You hear me? You didn’t. Don’t ever blame yourself for Seth’s death.”
  • Wymack kept Neil away from the microphone, not trusting Neil to behave himself.
  • “Five points or twenty-six miles. Do the math and decide which one makes you happier.”
  • “Let’s do this,” he said. “The sooner we kill these bastards, the sooner we can get roaring drunk at Abby’s place. I spent all damned morning stocking her fridge.”
  • “I have a cleaning crew coming in tomorrow to wash the Raven stench off our court. Let’s get the hell out of here and get wasted.”
  • “Neil,” Wymack said. “Between you and me, I don’t think you’ve ever been fine.”
  • “Nicky tried to hug Andrew and almost got himself staked with a kitchen knife.”
  • “Speaking of unpredictable assholes, when did that happen?”
    • “When did what?” Neil asked.
    • Wymack eyed him. “Forget it.”
  • “Figure out what you two need to cope with this, and let us know.”
  • “I want one lap for every time you’ve ever said the NCAA’s never had your back.”
    • “Oh, Jesus,” Nicky said. “We’ll be running all day.”
    • “Better get started, then,” Wymack said. “Move out, maggots.”
  • “Be here at six o’clock tomorrow morning,” Wymack said. “We’ve got a game to win Friday.”
  • [Nicky]: “I can’t understand you. That’s not fair.”
    • “Think about that the next time you use German at my practices,” Wymack said.
  • Wymack came out of nowhere and hauled Neil off Riko like he weighed nothing at all.
  • Wymack answered on the fourth ring. “You have a good reason to be bothering me on a holiday?”
  • “He sounds like Neil,” Wymack said, “but he doesn’t look like him. I’ll take your explanation from the top and without a side order of bullshit, thanks.”
  • He stopped fighting to get free; the hands that had been trying to wrench Wymack’s arms off him now held on for dear life.
  • “Can I let go of you and trust you to behave, or are you going to try and cut your face off again?”
  • Wymack didn’t say anything about the scars… He just checked Neil over with a clinical eye and poked at every line of stitches for weaknesses.
  • “He gave me a contract but I wouldn’t sign it. He couldn’t make me sign it. This doesn’t mean anything. I’m still a Fox.”
    • “Of course you are,” Wymack said.

and of course, mine and everyone else’s personal favorite:

  • “Help me,” he said through gritted teeth.”
    • “Let me,” Wymack shot back.

I have been seeing way too many pro-breeding posts and replies lately and it just infuriates me beyond words.

To the people who say things like: 

  • “Just buy from a reputable breeder!”
  • “Adopting isn’t for everyone!”
  • “But I want a purebred!”
  • “I don’t know what a shelter dog will be like!”

Explain to me how bringing more animals into this world is ever okay when THIS still happens every single day.

Explain to me how a “reputable breeder” makes this any better or makes this happen any less.

Explain to me how your desire for a purebred justifies this.

Explain to me why you think you’re entitled to an animal if you don’t have the patience to work with their negative traits.

Explain to me why you think their lives matter less.

The fact of the matter is, as long as we have way more animals that are abandoned and while shelters are overcrowded and are having to euthanize their animals just to make room, there is no such thing as a “reputable breeder”. 

While this is still happening, all breeding is irresponsible. Spay and neuter your animals, and most importantly…


people tend to forget that dirk doesnt actually like mlp - he just watched it as part of his pop culture scholarship - he just likes rainbow dash. or people are willing to ignore it because dirk being a brony is funnier. but i am here to propose that dirk being a non-brony who just loves rainbow dash is way better

hard dude dirk opening his heart to little cartoon horses is wholesome content. whats much more wholesome is dirk remaining unswayed by mlp - its not great, its not bad, its just a cartoon for kids. whats the big deal - except for that one fucking horse. something about that little butch pony strikes a chord with dirk. he is immune to the standard kids cartoon messages of love and friendship, he recognizes that its just a vehicle to sell toys, he has watched too much kids tv for this to hit home for him. but rainbow dash! that one particular pony! its something about her specifically. he loves her, wholly and unironically

we have all fallen for one particular character in an otherwise mediocre or unlikeable franchise. its relatable

@White folks, Imma need yall to get your own shit

Like literally, Black people make some shit up and yall are on it faster than flies on candy. We make up a word? Half yall white folks done flooded the tags with it. We do a dance and yall just NEED to fuckin participate RIGHT TF NOW. Rihanna does a hairstyle and there’s 72 white girls on twitter claiming they’re doing it better.

Like damn, yall are those kids who ask to play with other people’s shit before they even took the toy all the way out the box. Let the people who made the shit at least enjoy it for a second before yall put your noses in it.

Because let’s be clear, when yall start doing shit, it stops being cool. Black people only have to keep making new shit CONSTANTLY because yall ruin everything tbh. Like as soon as one of us does ANY-FUCKIN-THING yall are just waiting to pounce. And then we gotta watch our culture get half-assed and then thrown away by people who literally did nothing.

Maybe if yall spent less time vulturing the rest of us, yall could make up cool words and dances and outfits too.

(And lowkey, some of yall non-Black PoC are toeing the line)

the 3 types of sha///ladins

- ‘everyone’s a teenager’

- ‘everyone’s an adult’

- ‘who cares about age what a fake concept lmao’

15 things I learned at 15:
1. Life isn’t all about grades and paying bills and getting old. You can’t wake up every morning and do the exact same thing and then say you’ve lived. Do the types of things you can tell stories about. Live a little. 
2. The world can be a beautiful place if you look hard enough. Find those places. The world was made to be seen by your eyes.
3. Love is more than saying those three words. You have to mean them. You have to feel them.
4. Your feelings are valid. Always. Please don’t forget that. 
5. We were given voices so that we could say how we feel and what we think. Don’t let your voice go to waste because you’re scared. Speak your mind; tell him you love him, tell her that she hurt you, tell your parents that your sad, tell them you’re so fucking happy that they exist in this world.
6. Losing someone who was important to you once doesn’t make what you had together invalid. No matter how thing ended, whether you faded out like a sunset or you burst into flames and it was over instantaneously, they made you happy at one point. Just remember them like that.
7. Flowers braided into your hair are beautiful and leather jackets and combat boots are beautiful and stilettos and lipstick are beautiful and beautiful is not defined by a number, it’s a feeling.
8. Sometimes all someone needs is to be held.
9. Your heart is a muscle. It will break and then it will become stronger than ever. Love will end you, but you will rise from your ashes and you will be okay.
10. Being alone and being lonely are not the same thing.
11. Hold onto the things and the people that make your heart race and your cheeks hurt from smiling so much. Make sure they know they matter.
12. You don’t have to be okay all of the time. Just know that pain is only temporary.
13. No one in this world knows you better than yourself. Don’t ever let someone try to tell you otherwise.
14. Feel. Feel everything. Every emotion that is thrown your way, welcome it with open arms, invite it into your home, drown in it. Let your emotions consume you, when you feel things like this, no matter how painful, you know you’re alive.
15. If Van Gogh can turn his pain into a collection of masterpieces and Shakespeare can turn the greatest tragedies into something beautiful  then you can get up every morning and find a reason to stay.
