Reblog if you have used dude as a non gender specific term.
My mom often corrects me and my sister when we call each other dude, which really shouldn’t matter, but she’s making a big deal out of it anyways. And as someone who often doesn’t conform to what the defined box of what a girl is, it kinda hurts to be shoved back into place by one of the people who is supposed to accept me. So she told me to construct a survey and here’s part of it. Reblog if you’ve used dude (or other things like bro or man)as a non gender specific term before.
a fun fact about parenting is that if your child is lgbt+, no amount of “i love you"s or “i’m proud of you"s will take away your child’s fear of coming out to you.
i have great parents. they tell me they love me every damn day, and i’ve always had their support. but coming out to them was bar none the most terrifying thing i’ve ever done in my life because they were very, very heteronormative. all the while they were saying they loved me, they never seemed to consider for a second that i could be anything other than straight, and so i had no way of knowing whether or not that love was conditional. do they love me, or do they love the straight daughter who looks like me that only exists in their heads?
my parents love me, my parents are proud of me, but when i told them i’m gay at a restaurant one night, my purse was crammed full of a couple days’ worth of clothes and all the cash i had because i didn’t know if it would be safe for me to go back home.
parents, people who will be parents one day……don’t assume your kids are straight. don’t assume your kids are cis. tell your kids in no uncertain terms that you’ll love and support them if they’re lgbt+, because no matter how well you treat them, i promise you that they need to hear that.

Reblog if you support artists with OCs and original art
Hey it’s blue and I wanted to talk about how not many OC based artists are getting recognised and the only art work that actually gets reblogged is the occasional piece of fandom art. Please go out there and if you would be so kind as to reblog these wonderful OCs and the original art of the amazing and talented artists who deserve to be noticed. It shouldn’t just be fandoms that are looked at mainly but it should just be the art itself. It shouldn’t matter if the drawing is from a fandom or not, what matters is that the person worked their hardest on their artwork and hope to get it noticed. please make those artists dreams come true.
i’m really poor, my family is financially unstable all the time because my parents have walking/moving disabilities and it’s hard for them to find proper jobs since they can barely move. lately we’ve been having major financial problems.
they both used to work until the thing i was afraid of happened; my diabetic mom’s health condition started getting worse and worse. she couldn’t handle the pressure and the bullying at work so she had to quit her job. however, her health is the main priority in this entire thing so i don’t blame her at all.
as for now, my father is the only source of income. his monthly salary is $150 and as you can see that’s far from enough to maintain three people. i’ve tried to get a job myself but no one wanted to hire me because i’m a minor.
for the past few months my mom’s illness has been progressing, we even got her a wheelchair since she couldn’t walk at all. she needs a damn expensive diabetic healthcare course right now. my father works day and night just to gain some money. also, i contributed with my savings even though it wasn’t much.
yesterday, she got into a diabetic coma. it’s a life-threatening diabetes complication that can lead to death if it’s left untreated. in the case of my mother, it is fatal. the treatment that can help is extremely expensive and i have no idea what me and my dad are supposed to do in this situation.
our efforts are not enough for my mom’s medical assurance. the amount of money we have by now can provide only around half a month (if not less) of medicines. my dad is working all the time he doesn’t even sleep at this point, it’s a miracle if he gets at least 2 hours of sleep a day. but unfortunately it’s never enough.
i feel pathetic and useless, the tears are streaming down my face as i’m typing this and the fact that i can’t help in any way is killing me. it’s an obvious fact that she is going to die if we don’t pay for the medical assurance. please help, i really don’t want to lose my mother she means the world to me.
only money can help us in this harsh situation so if you can donate i’ll be forever thankful.
if you can, do it through paypal. my paypal email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
any amount will be highly appreciated, i’m not asking for much, really. also reblog this please, it does matter and i hope i’ll find people who can help. i’ve seen people on here do wonderful things to help people in need just like me. i truly believe that you have the power to save my mother. i will try to post this on gofund me as well so hopefully more people will get to know about my terrible situation. i know i already posted about my mother’s condition around 1 year ago on my another account and i’m really sorry for sharing my situation again, but back then it wasn’t even half as bad as it is now. i need your help now more than ever so please be understanding. i truly hope that you kind people can help us. it’s totally okay if you don’t donate though, just keep my mom in your prayers please, it means a lot.
i’m desperate please help, i’m begging you, i don’t want to lose my mother.
i can’t deal with this sudden interest in the fidget spinner outside of the stim/nd community? so many people are treating it as a fad, using them to do tricks, etc, when they forget what their main purpose is actually for.
it’s become a very dudebro thing to be into, and i can guarantee that a majority of these people who own them make fun of autistic/ nd people. it’s really not fair to take something meant for the disabled community and turn it into something so shallow.
of course, it’s ok to play w/ the fidget spinner (or any stim toy for that matter), as long as you bare in mind that its main purpose is for the disabled community’s use.
as of now on v channel+, this is the amount of “hearts” the boys have on their solo videos from the bts home party:
jimin - 13.7 mil
jungkook - 10.6 mil
jhope - 2.6 mil
rapmon + v - 498k
suga - 452k
jin - 439k
and to put it into perspective
i mean in a perfect world the chart above should like this
but we dont live in a perfect world and tbh, im kind of getting sick and tired of the hyung line not being appreciated enough and the clear favouritism in this fandom for the maknae line. dont get me wrong, i love them too and i have nothing against jimin, jungkook or tae, but i do have a problem when fans shit on the rest of the members when they are just as talented and hardworking. like it truly baffles me how jhope, as the main dancer/choreo leader of bts, someone who lives and breathes dancing, who’s acknowledged by his members almost 24/7 as being bangtan’s best dancer, ended up getting such little attention on his video? 11 and 8 million difference in “hearts” compared to jimin and jungkook respectively? this is actually worse than when billboard did that dumb poll and asked who our favourite member in bts was and surprise surprise, the ranking was as follows:
v - 32%
jungkook - 23%
jimin - 12%
jin - 11%
suga - 9%
jhope - 7%
rm - 6%
and stuff like views and votes may not matter to some of you and may not seem important or a true representative of this fandom or a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but these are only 2 of the many examples. from the number of fansites each member has to the popularity of all their individual merches. to the likes/views/ reblogs of their teaser photos/videos and status updates across all social media platforms. its hard to miss that there is an obvious difference between the popularity of all the members.
i dont know why people think whenever hyung line stans bring this up, its us trying to create a divide in the members and us competing them against each other when, some of you guys have already done that? we’re actually trying to stop exactly that.
ps. if you guys have v channel+ and have the time, please help bring up the “heart” count for hobi, jin, yoongi, namjoon + tae’s solo videos. also, that billboard poll is old but if any of you can hack into their website and just remove it altogether than that’d be very much appreciated.
This whole new trend of labeling people by their races disguised as positivity. And I’m not talking about celebrating the accomplishments of someone despite racial discrimination. I’m taking about the posts that go ‘Look at this black girl who did a thing! And she’s black! Black is beautiful! No one will ever talk about this!’. The unnecessary comments on posts of beautiful women or successful people, 'Black don’t crack. Glorious melanin! Black bitches getting shit done!’ and the incessant adding of political agendas to normal posts.
You see pictures of beautiful successful women and the comments are all about how that person is black. You see a man who has done something breaking in science and the comments are all about how he’s black and that black people can do things too and black lives matter, etc. etc. etc. People reblog post after post boiling down successful people to the fact that they’re black. Not that they’re smart, or beautiful, or talented, that they’re black. They aren’t beautiful because they have great complexion, or mesmerizing eyes, or beautiful hair, they’re beautiful because they’re black. That’s the only remarkable quality about them.
No one is even allowed to have any sort of accomplishment without it being some sort of political statement. No one talks about what makes them special. No one talks about the things that they’ve done. Everyone just marvels at the fact that they did that while being black. They were smart and black. Pretty and black. Successful even though they were black.
It’s not even defying stereotypes anymore, it’s feeding into them. It’s almost become a stereotype on its own. It’s saying 'wow this person did something great despite not being white!’. It’s saying that being black is a handicap and celebrating anything black people do as extraordinary because they overcame this handicap instead of the fact that they did something genuinely amazing.
It’s not positivity. It’s not proving that racists and stereotypes are wrong. It’s not really even celebrating that person. It’s celebrating the fact that they did something that’ll prove you right. It’s loving other people because of your political agenda. Because they’re important to your opinion. Because they prove a point. Not because of any kindness of the heart. It’s not positivity and black people, or any race for that matter, are not to be your pawns. People are not to be appreciated because of what they do for you, but because of what they do for humanity and for what they do for themselves.
It’s getting harder and harder to connect with witches who are also writers. It is so, so important for us all to band together and form a helpful community where we can all celebrate each others’ works and give advice.
Doesn’t matter if you’ve been published on Witches & Pagans, posted fanfiction online, or have written in a journal you only keep to yourself. If you’re a witch who writes, I want to hear from you.
Use #witchywriters to connect to each other on Tumblr and Instagram.
This hashtag is hardly ever used, so we might as well take advantage of that. And of course, reblog this to boost the word.
I want to connect! Make more friends! Read more work! Change the world one witchy writer at a time!!
I keep every story comment and every Kudos email from Ao3.
That one click per reader is a good thing. I’m blessed that they come regularly, nearly every day. It gives me a lift to see a new person leave kudos on more than one of my stories. I ‘SQUEE’ and say, for instance, “Hey there, ClockWeasel. Welcome! Thank you for all the love! I wish I could hug you right now.” :) It tells me they liked one of my stories enough that they looked for more from me.
It makes me want to finish WIPS and write more stories.
So, yeah, comments and reblogs are AMAZING. It’s a dream come true to read a thoughtful question or insight RE a story that I put thought and time and effort into.
But, Kudos matter, too.
Thank you to every reader who has given me the gift of Kudos!
I’m huge on affection, I will kiss your face a million times especially your cheeks, I will never get tired of kissing them. I will never get tired of showing you constant effort showing you how bad I want this because actions speak louder than words most of the time. I’m huge on doing random things to make you smile. I’m huge on just spending time together, we don’t need to go out and always do stuff I’m okay with staying in bed all day cuddling and watching movies. I’ll be your gym partner, someone you can confide in,your best friend someone who motivates you because I see how much you can do. I will be here for the good days, the bad days and the everything in between. I’ll hold your hand through it, if you let me. I’ll be your 3 am phone call if you need company and your afternoon lunch date if you want to hangout. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that we take for granted, because at the end of the day they’re the most important to us.
