petitions

You can ship what you want. But you can't automatically expect it to be cannon, and if it isn't made cannon don't fucking harass the creators. Don't start stupid petitions. Don't harass those who like the cannon ship. Just accept it. Even if it's non cannon it's okay. Just go enjoy your ship.

anonymous asked:

Would it be appropriate to have my altar to Aphrodite in a fish tank and then in a plate next to it be like an offering plate? (My parents are very christian) and also, how would I give a petition to aphrodite? I know it's different for some dieties

I think that would be a lovely altar to Aphrodite. Also very inconspicuous - easily hidden. Remember that through your time worshiping undercover, it is the amount of effort and work you put behind your devotion rather than how elegant or fancy your altars and shrines are that matters. 

As far as petitioning, you need to offer something, and the offering has to be relative to the petition - for example, if you’re petitioning for a major life change or other major thing, the offering that would be best is a sacrifice in the name of the Theos in question, but if you’re petitioning for something smaller, maybe a major sacrifice isn’t necessary. (Though my feeling has always been, if it’s not big enough to need a sacrifice, I might rethink my petition, but that’s just me.) 

Good luck.

Attention Spring Awakening Fans!

As we are all aware and sad about, Deaf West’s production of Spring Awakening closed on Broadway recently. For many Broadway shows, the New York Public Archives films a production of the show professionally, and Sandra Mae Frank’s father has officially started a petition to have the video released for purchase and to be shown in deaf schools. Imaging how wonderful it would be to make an already ground-breakingly accessible show even more accessible! Please sign this petition, and help spread the word.

I have so many headcanons for these two members of Sector Z 

I mean, since they’re two of the Delightful Children from Down the Lane that means that currently right now they’re Adoptive Siblings. 

BUT before they were transformed into the Delightful Children, they weren’t remotely related to each other and they were teammates in the same Sector. So it’s very possible that these two were (and still are technically) Boyfriend & Girlfriend judging by their body language alone. 

I mean come on! just look at these two together, they totally scream couple at us and I just REALLY need to learn more about the history between these two and the History of Sector Z. 

This is one of the reasons why we need Galactic Kids Next Door. We NEED to learn more about this universe and it’s characters! 

Please sign the petition HERE and spread the word like wildfire since we’re calling all operatives to battle stations immediately!

“This casting choice is really awful, I’m going to make a petition on change.org to put things back the way they-”

No, fuck you. Online petitions are made to make living conditions of a certain group or even a whole country better, they’re made to create equality and bring justice, they’re made to keep freedom and prevent unjust laws.

They are NOT madeto fulfil your petty fandom requests and whinings. It’s fine to complain, you have a right to; but going so far so quickly is an amateur, childish move. If people keep abusing the use of online petitions for things like casting choices and jokes, people will stop taking petitions seriously, and in times of internet freedom and whole groups of people being at stake, we need petitions to be taken seriously.

There are things that are a lot worse than someone not playing a character you want to in a movie, SUCK IT UP.

Young Americans [originally titled ‘College Republicans’] is a film that will reunite actors Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe and Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas.

The screenplay, by Wes Jones, topped the 2010 Black List [a list featuring the best un-produced screenplays].

“The script is based on a true story from 1973 centred around Karl Rove. Rove, claimed to be played by DeHaan, runs a campaign for national College Republican Chairman. Under the guidance of his campaign manager Lee Atwater, supposedly Radcliffe, Rove’s campaign is far from clean.Their campaign includes a wild road trip intended to drum up support. Despite all the political machinations, however, the focus is really on the friendship between the two, and that’s something that Radcliffe and DeHaan could do a lot with.” [from entertainmentwise.com]

A follower of mines submitted this to me, and this racist event is taking place at their college, the petition has been going around, they asked if would share. it reads,

We, as concerned students of UC Davis and Davis community members, would like to declare our utter offense and disgust with an off campus event organized by UC Davis students.

It has been brought to our attention that a “Cinco de Drinko Sloshball” facebook event page was created by UC Davis Coffeehouse (Coho) student employees earlier this week. The event is a party intended to have attendees dress in “festive” attire, meaning stereotypical “Mexican” dress (a sombrero and sarape, fake mustache, etc.). In addition, attendees are given an image that demonstrates the attire they should wear, which includes a border patrol officer costume. These images are hurtful to our community and only serve to create a hostile campus climate by sending a message of disregard and disrespect for the Chican@/Latin@ and Undocumented/Immigrant campus community.” (and further on).

PLEASE SIGN: Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Stop Gassing the Birds!
Please contact Honolulu Mayor, Kirk Caldwell, and demand that he stop the round-up and gassing to death of feral (free-living) chickens in Honolulu.

There’s nothing “humane” about gassing birds with carbon dioxide. It burns their eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause severe nausea, vomiting, bloody vomiting, and dry heaving, all while very slowly suffocating. Birds in a CO2 gas chamber often attack each other out of panic and distress. When they don’t die, they get thrown back into the chamber for even more suffering.

Gassing animals to death with CO2 is opposed by Animal Haven, Animal Rights Hawaii, United Poultry Concerns, The Humane Society of the United States, and the American Humane Association – to name just a few. The City and County of Honolulu, for decades, have deployed a great variety of hunters, trappers, exterminators, and others to trap and kill the birds. They are well aware that rounding up and killing is futile. It even causes the birds to spread out and establish themselves in even more new areas. They also know that OvoControl birth control feed works, but they would rather keep the contracts flowing for campaign dollars than solve the problem. They’d prefer that the chickens be cruelly asphyxiated to death. 

Urge Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell to use birth control feed instead of trapping and gassing the chickens. 

Tell him you are outraged that his administration would trap and torture these birds to death when contraception is the only humane and effective way to reduce the feral chicken population. Click through to the page for Caldwell’s contact info. Thank you!
