Be 100 percent honest with me, is Sweden really as bad as people say it is, on the Internet?

No of course not. People here tend to pick the worst news from in many cases the most biased sources and exaggerate it. I mean it’s pretty bad, but not that bad. Most swedes live very good lives.

i love goth /spooky things and old dolls and nicole dollanganger and cute old vintage stuff with angels on ETC. but i really hate some of the attitudes that fellow fans of this stuff have, im getting so sick of seeing pictures of bleeding lips and hospital beds and stuff and thin white girls looking either injured or very unwell… illness is not an aesthetic and it seems like people ..mostly younger teens are getting into this kind of ‘vibe’ and thinking it’s okay or even cool and romantic to want to die/self harm /whatever. also i keep seeing shit like ‘no lives matter’ in people’s bio’s and stuff and its sickening.. like i’m genuinely sorry if people are depressed but basing your aesthetic or internet persona on being ill, pale, and full of hate is pretty worrying

Just got home from a concert with Rian, the boy I met through Dear My Blank. I moshed for the first time! For all the people who doubt love that started on the internet, we’ve been together for almost a year and a half and there’s no end in sight. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been.

Imagine Asriel, upon finding out just how many people on the Internet want to date him, decides to hold one of those dating game shows to help him make a decision. But for some inexplicable reason, he gets Mettaton to judge the contestants.

My favourite thing is that people can be shitty on the internet and “see the light” or whatever bollocks they call it and all the while Harry and Louis continue to do their thing. People can answer all the anons they want and explain how wrong everything is, but, at the end of the day you and your shitty opinion have no affect on them. And you just continue to be wrong.

let's get real people

the internet and smart phones aren’t what is causing sex trafficking and the exploitation of children. it isn’t the cause of young kids being exposed to porn. it isn’t the cause of bullying.

that is all just the result of shitty human beings.

because i was 8 the first time i saw porn. and i’m 41. i was 11 when i was molested. i was bullied and picked on a lot as a kid (red hair, freckles, glasses, and crooked teeth gave mean kids plenty to poke fun at) a good friend was around 10 when she was exposed to beastiality. by the preacher’s kids.

keeping kids off the internet and not giving them phones isn’t protecting them. not really. cuz all that shit is out there. and has been for a long time.

you know what will protect your kids?

you, having a good relationship with them. talking to them about sex and porn and predators. because if you don’t, someone will. and you need to do it early. (remember, i was only 8) don’t wait until someone puts hands on them. or shows them pictures. you can’t afford to. they need to know. now.

when they are two and three, they need to be taught that their body is their own and that no one should touch them without permission. also teach them. it to touch others without permission. they need to be taught the proper names for their and others’ body parts. when they know they are less of a target. this way when they are 9 and 10 and someone tries something they have the words to tell you. and they’re not afraid of the words.

when they are 8, 9, 10 talk about rape. remind them that if they don’t want to be touched by someone that is their right. reaffirm the importance of consent. it’s not too early to talk about safe sex. teach them how to spot an abusive person. when they ask questions answer them. answer honestly. because in a few years they may be too self conscious to ask. yeah, it can be uncomfortable, but it will be worth it.

when they are 12, 13, 14 read news stories about violent crime. talk to them about what qualities make for a good partner. don’t teach them to slut shame or body shame. talk about the risks of sexual activity. both the physical and emotional. if they ask questions at this age and talk to you about this stuff easily, be thankful.

and then you’ve older teens. and you hope they’re not having sex or sexting. or drinking. or using drugs. but if you find they are, for god’s sake don’t fly off the handle. that’s hard to do. i know, but the worst thing you can do is clamp down. because then you’ve closed the conversation. you lose any chance for input or for gaining their confidence.

closing your kids off by forbidding the use of technology doesn’t protect them. it just isolates them.

What do you think about this post about bierasure vs a rift in lgbt? fireoceans(.)tumblr(.)com/post/152076073069/cstia-this-post-is-almost-as-bad-as-the-gay

I agree with most of this post, from top to bottom. And it’s the kind of stuff I’ve mentioned here countless times. It’s so so important to understand a need to not erase bisexual identifying people. it’s so important to have bi inclusion in the LGBT community. But it’s equally as important to be careful that that doesn’t harm lesbian and gay people either. I think sometimes the internet fails to take nuance into consideration. What’s good for some people can be bad for others and vice versa and what’s good for one group can still be bad for that group. Everyone needs different things and there are tons of issues that all come into play becuae we operate in a society that works against us in many, many ways. I think it’s important to understand what one another needs and try to be patient and inclusive while challenging one another.

So I'm a curious potato with too much time on their hands, so who's your favorite person or people? Mine has to be my GF, her GF, and my internet friends.

All of my friends in the RFA ^^ Even Jumin, when he isn’t being a douche…

And my fans, of course. <3

didnt you guys know that if you say your wish out loud or write it down and other people see it (including putting it on the internet) it wont work…???? im pretty sure thats one of the wishing rules 

I appreciate that people care enough to reach out if I’m feeling down. I don’t have depression, I get down in the dumps at times, so I don’t want to even suggest that what I’m going through is in any way comparable to depression.

But still thank you to people who reach out. You’re all awesome for doing that because if you do it for me, I know you’re probably making a huge difference for other people who really need it.

I’ve had a few drinks and am feeling a bit soppy tonight. I love all my friends who reach out to me and I try to pay it forward to people who need it as well. I’m an Internet old (in my 30’s), but I’m so happy to see so many people who are able to empathize with others. People may make fun of SJW’s on Tumblr, but thank you to everyone who makes this a welcoming place for people who are dealing with depression, abuse, identity issues, ect .

The world’s in good hands.
