okay, heres the thing though, there are disabled people declared unfit to work, who actually could work. Hold on a second though. They literally cannot work in our society today the way it’s structured, because they aren’t allowed to work in fields they can actually handle with hours that wont harm them. 

I’m sure many disabled people, myself included would love to get out of the house sometimes to socialize with people and feel like we’re doing something and being a part of a team or something, working towards goals.

I’m not speaking for the entire disabled community of course. Some people absolutely don’t want to do that, and there are very few if any jobs they could do for any amount of time. That’s very real.

But some disabled people are only hindered from working because of the way our society is structured against disabled people. Our needs are seen as luxuries, and thus we are systematically banned from accomplishing things to help our society. So our perceived “uselessness” is ableist, incorrect, intentionally crafted, and we don’t have to be useful to be deserving of life and love. 

this gonna sound like the most “only 90s kids” bullshit ever, but hear me out: I feel like the same thing that happened to how people perceive the general look of the 80s is now happening to the 90s. people who weren’t alive during it just kind of assuming what things must’ve looked like. 

much like how the 80s consisted of all neon colors and heavy synth, everything in the 90s had a fuzzy VHS static dust filter over it and people would just be walkin’ around and get fuckin slime dumped on them by nickelodeon at random.

anonymous asked:

Can you do pynch for the ship thing please <3

YOU BET YOUR SWEET ASS I CAN 

(god FINALLY)

SEND ME A SHIP AND I’LL TELL YOU…

who is more likely to hurt the other?

I mean. Adam doesn’t usually get hurt by ronan so much as he gets annoyed. disappointed. pissed. He never lets ronan’s venom actually get to his veins, he’s too busy telling him how unnecessary the flash of fang is. ronan on the other hand. like. he’s easy to hurt. adam would never in his life want to hurt ronan (it’s his honest to god nightmare) but I think ronan works himself into such a despair at the smallest jealousies and perceived injustices that adam could make one careless comment and ronan would fixate on it

who is emotionally stronger?

ohhhh adam. it’s adam. He’s been dragging so much emotional rubble for so long that he’s built up a tolerance. strong is like The Most adam adjective that I can think of. ronan never had to get to adam’s level of detachment and dissociation bc the first 15 years of his life were gorgeous and easy, and he’s still growing into his protective shell. Adam had to be born in his

who is physically stronger?

it’s ronan tbH he has the upper body strength of a boxer and the broad shoulders of a lynch (but also adam has clever hands and muscular thighs from years of biking everywhere and he can handle himself)

who is more likely to break a bone? 

ouch. They’re both capital R Reckless when they’re together and they have some brutal years under their belts. adam has some poorly set knobbly fingers and ronan has an old snapped clavicle that took forever to heal and constantly bruised knuckles so like. idk. In the future, when adam parrish has escaped from his childhood prison, I’d like to think that they both get ugly minor injuries from doing joyful ramp and dolly and shopping cart type activities only

who knows best what to say to upset the other? 

surprisingly difficult question to answer bc I mean. It’s ronan. but is it? he systematically winds people up and adam is so deeply irritated by him that he straight up walks away, but also adam can be ice cold?? it’s so easy to get to ronan. They both fumble and call each other mean names when they want to compliment each other it’s a big mess

who is most likely to apologize first after an argument? 

holy shit would you believe neither??? the most stubborn humans on this earth!! record holders!! we got some emotional repression folks! hooooo boy

adam never starts arguments for no reason so he’s always thinking it through and coming to the conclusion that he’s in the right?? surprise he ain’t apologizing

meanwhile ronan can’t stop being cruel even though he knows it’s hurting people, it’s this vicious self-protective instinct that hurts so good and so wrong. and then his pride gets in the way once he’s cooled down. but he will come to st agnes on his knees and grab adam’s hand and try to make it clear that he’d step on his own pride on the way to adam’s door

who treats who’s wounds more often? 

sad & unfortunate :(( adam treats ronan’s solely bc ronan doesn’t know how the fuck to treat an injury and also ‘none of them wanted to hurt adam parrish’, so ronan’s got his stupid pointless anger related scrapes and adam’s got his anti-bacterial gel and they are a dream team

who is in constant need of comfort? 

neither of them come out on top here man. They’ve had some shared harrowing experiences, and some separate trauma that they’re trying to tell each other about (if their stories could just stop. sticking. when they try to say them out loud). in v different ways, neither of their families are families. Ronan doesn’t let himself fall asleep, and he doesn’t let himself go through things, and the repression starts to calcify into cruelty like it did right after his father died. adam can’t stop thinking about gansey on the roadside, and he can’t be touched some days, most days. he can’t stop swimming or he’ll die. He can’t keep swimming or he’ll die. The gangsey is a critical support system made of so many weak beams

who gets more jealous? 

are u fucking serious,,, it’s both of them pal. remember when every combination of his friends that didn’t include him made adam like. sick with jealousy. remember when ronan saw gansey talking on the phone with adam and wanted to put his hand through a wall. or when adam brought blue along on their quest and he spouted nasty shit the whole day. they both deeply want each others attention and they don’t seem to realize that they already have it? always?

who’s most likely to walk out on the other? 

ohh god. oh man. oh boy. Here’s the thing. adam’s gonna walk away from ronan, but he’s not gonna walk OUT on him. he’s going to walk away because he’s not on a leash, he’s gonna spread those beautiful fucking self-made wings. And ronan is too!! in his own time he’s gonna build his own spaces that aren’t the barns and he’s going to realize what home means to him and they’re both gonna walk out the door and back but never close it behind them

who will propose? 

a controversial topic! I’m on team adam for this one pals. I was on team ‘adam’s gonna kiss ronan first’ for a while before trk like a FOOL and I realized the error of my ways bc ronan is physical as fuck! and a risk-taker! of course he kissed adam smh. But a proposal? That’s a contract. That’s a speech. That’s a chess move. Ronan wouldn’t corner adam like that. Adam knows how ronan feels and more importantly he knows how HE feels himself, and I think one day ten years into their relationship the practicalities are gonna beckon and he’s gonna look ronan in the back of the head while he’s sleeping and roll over into the curve of his spine and tell him he wants a ring on his finger 

who has the most difficult parents?

omg… fuck off

who initiates hand-holding when they’re out in public? 

tactile bastards! both of them! ronan especially wants adam’s hands…., any which way he can get them. I mean. He will kiss adam’s hands when they’re at dinner at nino’s and he’ll hook their fingers together even for the 20 second walk from the BMW to monmouth’s front door like he LIVES FOR IT (adam feels nervy and exhilarated every time it’s gay)

who comes up for the other all the time? 

i mean they’re always together so they don’t really bring each other up. if they’re not together they’re with gansey/blue/henry or even fox way babes/vancouver crowd etc and those ppl get real tired of it real quick. adam usually keeps his ronan related musings to himself though like he has self-control unlike… R.N.L. himself

who hogs the blankets? 

ronan does tbh adam has never hogged anything in his life and ronan is a shit

who gets more sad? 

an unfair Q, man. They’ve both had a super rough time, especially right post-trk?? those few months are hard. Ronan cries a lot. Adam gets numb and far away a lot. They have a lot to be sad about. (But more to be happy about. They made it. They honestly just stare at each other and laugh breathlessly and touch foreheads and hands and scars and can’t believe their luck)

who is better at cheering the other up? 

I sorta said this with ronsey but I think ronan is THE BEST at doing dumb shit to take his mind off of things. Like all that stuff about making adam quiet and turning off the lists and anxieties in his head so that they can do smth mindless and dangerous? yeah that. memes and songs and poor decisions. depression whom?

who’s the one that playfully slaps the other all the time after they make silly jokes?

this never happens wtf they’re not really ‘playful slappers’ HOWEVER adam will glare at ronan so hard that it probably feels like a slap

who is more streetwise?

it reeeeally depends on your definition of streetwise?? Like if we’re talking survival it’s unquestionably adam. He can fix your car and bandage your wounds and figure out your taxes and make himself invisible and blend his accent into whoever’s around him. He’s wicked sharp and fast on his feet. But i mean. he can’t quite drive stick. and he wouldn’t be caught dead in the sort of underground that ronan ends up in. ronan is streetwise in terms of the actual street, and he knows the most brutal avenues a person can end up on, the real life nightmares that feel closest to the ones in his head. Ronan is smart enough to navigate the chaos, but adam is smart enough to avoid it altogether

who is more wise?

adam. easily. ronan is intelligent and instinctive and talented (or adam wouldn’t get him as well as he does) but adam is a genius and that look behind his eyes….. he’s lived about 1 billion times more than he should’ve by age 19

who’s the shyest? 

neither of them are shy exactly they’re just buried under 9 surface level personalities that you have to crack open with your bare fuckin hands

but if you met either of them in the hallowed halls of aglionby you would think adam was shy and ronan was a rampant fuckwad so based on appearance?? adam. he keeps his head down.

who boasts about the other more? 

as soon as adam is officially his bf ronan takes a ten year long victory lap he’s so embarrassing

who sits on who’s lap?

y’all. we all know ronan sits in adam’s. it’s a fact of life. he probably had a sexy dream about it when he was 17 and took his morning shower in holy water

anonymous asked:

And in the interview she also said Yuuri bought both of the rings. Made me super sad.

I think it’s romantic! Think about the type of person Yuuri is and what that gesture meant.

Not only did he put a ring on Victor (which is HUGE in and of itself), but Yuuri also chose to wear a second ring that directly links them together. They’re a “pair.” He must have known what those rings would look like to everyone else, and he still did it.

Think about how Phichit reacted. Think about how the entire fandom reacted. “They’re married!!”

I imagine that’s not the last time Victor and Yuuri are going to be mistaken as a married couple by others.

Yuuri still chose to buy those rings, knowing how they would be perceived. (I don’t think he would have blushed as hard as he did during the ring exchange scene if he didn’t understand what they implied.) He wanted that outward declaration to be worn by both of them. That must have taken an enormous amount of courage for someone as shy as him.

And Kubo also said the rings symbolized the fact that they’re soulmates. Don’t be sad.

anonymous asked:

Alright, JK giving himself and Jimin the same age says A LOT tbh.. I'm a bit... Yeah.

{Hi! Sorry to bother but although I’m a die-hard jikook shipper (unbiased 🙃) , I just have to say how amazingly consistent JK has been throughout the years with putting himself and JM at the same age “friend” level and also how in calling JM ‘cute’ with all its synonyms be it in Korean, Japanese or English.}

He really just confirmed the way we perceive their relationship.
What I found really sweet is that not only is Jimin the only one he put on the same level as him but he gave him his own age. And when Hoseok was asked the same question he also gave jimin his own age but gave jungkook something like 10 (i dont remember but basically he’s a kid for him). So jungkook acts like the maknae he is with the others but not with jimin. And jimin’s suddenly not a hyung anymore with him.
That’s great.

I keep trying to think of a way to write some meta about Bellamy Without Octavia, but I honestly just come up with a black hole of nothing when I think about it.  And that’s really all there is to say, because in Bellamy Blake’s mind, his entire being is predicated on keeping her alive and now he thinks he’s failed at that, so what’s left?

anonymous asked:

Users are accusing game devs/pubs of not taking action against trolls/harassers/jerks/etc in their online games after sending reports on the assertion that banning 'em = cutting off potential recurring revenue streams of those troublesome users via DLC or microtransactions, F2P or retail (this notion is continually perceived as such regardless of being dealt w/ behind the scenes). I based it on NeoGAF topic id 1346676 on Overwatch. Thoughts? What differs those types of users from cheaters?

The only real difference is that griefers and cheaters break different rules. That’s about it. Remember, griefers are net negative when it comes to value to us - through their actions, they actually destroy more revenue (usually by chasing away other players) than they bring in. It’s in our best interests to stop them. And we do - usually, there is some sort of punishment. But there’s a lot you don’t see that’s actually going on behind the scenes that might make you feel like there’s a lot more toxicity than there actually is. There’s also cognitive issues that can crop up. But the main thing isn’t that we’re not willing to permanently ban people because we want their money, but that reforming toxic players is a lot better result than any other possibility.

So first, let’s talk about percentages in aggregate. Imagine that you’re playing a team multiplayer game like Overwatch, Dota, Counter-Strike or something along those lines - you join a game of 9 other random people. Let’s also say that you’ve had a lousy day and are on edge - maybe somebody cut you off while driving home, somebody took the last cupcake from the kitchen, you got an exam back with a lower score than you expected, or the girl you like turned you down for a date. Whatever the reason, you’re feeling angry and then you see Rando #7 do something stupid and losing the game for your team. Normally you would be fine, but your day is already so table-flipping awful that you just snap, cursing that player out. Congratulations, you were a jerk and ruined 9 other peoples’ game. But that’s ok. Most of the time you aren’t a jerk. Let’s say that 95% of the time you are not a jerk. But every so often you have a bad day, and it just happens. You’re only human, after all. We all get mad.

Well, assuming the other 9 people in the game are also as human as you (with a 95% chance of having a decent day), what’s the percentage that at least one person among all ten has a table-flippingly bad day? It’s actually about 40%. Two toxic games out of every five you play does can certainly give the impression that the community is awful… and that’s just via probability. It’s very common that toxic games cascade - by spreading the hate to the other 9 players, they turn on the frown beams in their next games too, triggering others who trigger others…  This can make the community seem like it’s a lot worse than it actually is - remember, all of the players in the original game are well-behaved 95% of the time

There’s also more to it than that. Game studios are at fault too, though not for the reason you think. A lot of gaming companies have a rather bad policy of never giving details about punishments to players. Most of the time, any sort of punishment we give (be it a warning, a temp ban, or a permaban) is often very vague. Punishment without a clear reason often leads to even worse behavior. Most of the time, it’s because they feel that they were unjustly punished… so they lash out. Riot’s done research into this with their Player Behavior team - 50% of players who were told why they were punished did not do it again. 70% of players who were shown evidence of their misdeeds did not relapse. But too many publishers and studios will hand down a vaguely-worded email or message without a clear reason. That’s frustrating, and it causes bad behavior.

Yes, there are some people who really are unrepentant jerks out there, and we do go after them when we see them. But there’s also a lot of people who are just having a bad day, or who didn’t get a clear reason why they were punished and act out on it. It isn’t really about the fact that they’re paying customers - it’s because they aren’t all jerks. Channeling player behavior in a positive direction isn’t easy, but it is something that publishers and devs are exploring.


Got a burning question you want answered?

windsweptheath  asked:

Would you have "Creature - Celtic Warrior" or "Creature - Roman Warrior"? For the same reason, you shouldn't have "Creature - Viking Warrior" - viking is a real-world historical term for Nordic seafaring people. It seems to fly in the face of what Magic creative is about.

What a word originally meant and how it is currently perceived is not the same thing. Viking is treated by most in the same type of category that they would put Pirate or Ninja. It’s an adventuring character trope.

Blue exorcist opening analysis

Since I watched the new opening of blue exorcist it got me right away. The feeling is so different of the first one, pointing out the twins relationship.

This is a cap of the first op:

Yukio is like  “I´m gonna help my demon bro” and is just centered in the conflict Rin has and his life in cram school:

AND THERE IS THE SECOND OP

This, for me, represents how Rin and Yukio look in the outside and what is really like in the inside of this characters:

-Rin, for the rest of the people looks like a bad sigal, because in this season his friends, the only friends he ever had discovered that he was Satan´s son. But really in the inside he is just a pure kid. He is kind, he wants to do the right thing, but thanks to his demon part he can´t achive that 100% of the times.

Maybe is the way he perceives himself, but what can´t he sees is how pure he is.

-Yukio, OMG this kid. For everyone he looks like a responsable, intelligent and calm person, he even don´t look and ack like a kid. He had to grow up very fast because he saw demons since he was  very young. He needed to learn how to be a good exorcist just to protect his brother. 

But in the inside of his soul he is a very dark person. Even he is a serious character, we have seen that he is not a kid anymore. He can see the dark side of this word and he has embraced pride and envy in his soul. He knows that that´s what is happening to him, he also realized that he was so obssesed with himself, and his true motivations was nothing but selfishness, he maybe is not even thinking anymore of protecting his brother´s life as a meta.

Shura said that people like Yukio were very dangerous, because you can´t know they true nature. I think the reader or the person how follows the anime, knows more less the mind set of Yukio, but it looks that is even worst than that.


WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT EACH OTHER

This is just telling me that Yukio is the light for Rin to follow, the dream or meta. He admires his brother so much, even if sometimes Rin fights about ranges and knowledges, he always look up for Yukio in cram school.

Yukio, looks at Rin like the dark inside of him. He said that he hated Rin so much, but it was because he hates himself. He just represents all the choices that he made, his weakness, his fathers dead, everything on his shoulders as Rin.

They used the same dark/light patron here just to represent how the atmosphere feels between the two twins:

I concluded that this was in Rins perspective, because of this part. He looks at Yukio in the light, how he is a bigger person that him in so many aspects, and how he is a full human (well…). And he is just there, in the dark, looking at his brother and how they have to comfort with the life they are living.

(I leave the english traduction, because in matches so well).

AND FINALLY THIS:

That for sure, dont match with this:

Call it brother rivalry, but this has to much meaning (if you look the sequence). How Yukio looks Rin going foward with his own rules, while Yukio is jus behind him of power, meta, pure feelings and ever love (my poor yukio, when is gonna be fine :C )

I HOPE YOU LIKE MY ANALYSIS, AND I WOULD LIKE YOU TO MAKE YOUR OPINION!

Dreams really do come true!

To quote Hussie
“So I urge you to celebrate this victory with me. The road was long and rocky, the potholes numerous. But in retrospect, any perceived suspense was merely destiny’s sleight of hand!”

mellenabrave  asked:

I mean honestly it would make more sense if they spoke about Steph because Damian's revival was quick enough that most gotham citizens thought he was simply off to somewhere while he was gone.

It’s not really a question of if Damian would have perceived to be dead by the public but more of a question about Robin. Robin’s death was very public. 

Batman Inc. #8

Damian was killed in the lobby of Wayne Enterprises right in downtown Gotham and you can’t really see it but there are a ton of people (henchman and hostages) watching the fight on the upper level. It’s not like Robin was killed in some far off place that they can easily make an excuse for, people definitely saw Robin die. 

This panel in Batman Inc. #9 shows that the public was aware on some level that something happened to Damian and if he doesn’t show up in the public for some time they’re going to assume the worst. 

It’s important to note that we don’t know the Batman isn’t in ‘rage’ mode in the show. No one ever came in direct contact with him (due to licensing issues) so it’s hard to judge what mental state Bruce is in during Powerless and even then because this is a comedic show you’re not going to get a overly developed look at Batman. 

While it could be Steph, I personally think it’s far more likely to be Damian just because of the circumstances of his/Robin’s death. 

anonymous asked:

Can you have vaginal orgasms or are you a clitoral stimulation only kind of woman?

Both! Or, at the very least, I perceive physical differences in orgasms that originate from one or the other. If this is perhaps imaginary, I am not interested in pursuing it further in terms of scientific inquiry, as some things in my life are better left as unexplained, delicious, mind-numbing phenomena.

Solo Direction?

There is no doubt in my mind about a few things:

  1. The lads wanted and NEEDED a break from the relentless touring and recording pace of 1D.
  2. All four of them would give up their worldly possessions and take up organic farming in Iceland, before they’d sign 1D with a restrictive Syco contract again.
  3. 1D and our lads are still locked down and greatly restricted.  1D cannot reunite yet.
  4. The solo projects are already resulting in immense personal and professional growth for the lads and greatly improving their perceived “artistic credibility.”

I have a feeling, however, if the lads had a viable option to continue 1D (in the short term) they may have chosen that over solo projects.  (There still would have been time for Harry to do Dunkirk and the others to write, produce, etc.)  Solo projects are the best way (right now) to keep the One Direction brand current and viable for the future reunion.  They keep their names current and do their best to remind people of an upcoming 1D reunion.

Jughead’s Perceived Ace Erasure on Riverdale Controversy

so like i get people getting mad about the perceived ace erasure of Jughead on The CW’s Riverdale and I personally would like to see them explore that but

1) y’all seem to be confusing ‘asexual’ and ‘aromantic’ for the same thing which they ARE NOT

2) he’s only really come out as ace in one version of the Archie Comics, and there are so many different continuities that basically the only things that have remained the same between most continuities are the characters’ names…

3) the author of the reboot has explicitly stated that though in his continuity Jughead is asexual, he has been written as straight in the past and may be written as straight in the future, so don’t act like you didn’t see it coming.

I’m not saying that y’all are complaining for no reason, and I really support the push for Jughead to be portrayed as ace on Riverdale, but don’t act like Betty x Jughead is detrimental to representing Jughead as ace or even flat-out erasure. That’s my two cents.

anonymous asked:

Rosy, I'm confused by your writing the hand nuzzle can be perceived by C as "another rejection" of her by B. Can you point out his romantic rejections of her over the seasons please? He explicitly IMO romantically rejected her during Unity Day flirting scene. And she came to him for political help in Hakeldama, which he refused to offer, but that wasn't really a personal "I want you" romantic request. Are there other rejections I'm missing? Thanks!

I didn’t say romantic rejection. I said rejection.

She came to him in Hakeldama with a proposal. 

He rejected her proposal. Clean and simple.

Thus a rejection.

From there you can interpret it how you want. 

She left Arkadia thinking Bellamy hated her. And it wasn’t romantic. It was the loss of their entire relationship, and if you don’t think she was in love with him, there will be no romantic disappointment there. However if you DO think she was in love with him, as I think, then not only did he reject her political proposition, her alliance, her partnership and her friendship, their entire relationship that she had been depending upon since she came to earth, he also rejected the possibility of a romantic something, what with the thumb stroking and eye contact and gentle smile. But nope. It was nothing of the sort. Clearly he didn’t feel that way about her, right? And “I want you,” is a sexual sentiment, not a romantic one. You can want without love. 

The unity day rejection was more of the “I want you” thing, and I don’t think that was romantic either at that point, but it was sexual, I’ll give you that, although I wasn’t even considering that scene as a rejection. I bet Clarke was.

Blues / For J.C by Olga Broumas, from “Love Speaks Its Name (gay and lesbian love poems)” 

Letting go, woman, is not as easy as pride
or commitment
to civilization would
have us think. Loveletters crowding against the will:

The esplanade of your belly, I said, that
shallow and gleaming spoon.
You 
said, Not quite
an epiphany,
our bodies breathing 
like greedy gills, not quite
an epiphany, but close, close.
I loved you 

then for that
willful precision, the same
precision with which you now
extricate
cool as a surgeon 
your amphibian heart. My mouth,

blind in the night to pride, circles
your absence, absurd as one
fish, kissing
compulsively through the vertigo
of the deep

silence
an ocean, dimly perceived
like an aftertaste: my own salt, my fish-
bowl gyrations, my beached
up mouth

anonymous asked:

Do you believe in glamours changing physical appearance or just how others view you (ex- confident, going unnoticed, alluring, etc.)

just how others view you. perception is a powerful thing, and i believe we are unable to actually perceive anyone unbiased, whether its on feature being focused on, a prejudice, personality overpowering the way they look, or simply how the person wants to see the person

this ocpd diagnosis has been. so enlightening but so frustrating at the same time, because one of the hallmarks of ocpd is that obsessive/compulsive behaviours are seen as egosyntonic - i.e., they’re perceived by the person with ocpd as rational and desirable. and it’s like! the characteristics of ocpd include things like, “rule-bound and duty-bound; earnest, hardworking, meticulous, painstaking,” all of which i would certainly consider positive traits, but then they veer into “indecisive, inflexible; marked self-doubts; dreads errors and mistakes” and you start to see the negative impact of trying so hard to be good at everything you do… but then it’s like??? well??? what am i supposed to do? be less organized? set fewer goals? lower my standards? get comfortable with imperfect work? none of this makes any sense
