Verbal Abuse Has Wife Fed Up

By Amy Dickinson

October 17, 2017

Dear Amy: My husband has cancer, so I’m trying to give him some leeway when he calls me “stupid” and tells me to “shut up.” He didn’t start doing this until after my dad died, about 12 years ago.

I guess it’s my fault for letting him get away with it for all these years.

Our children are now parroting his comments. I’m ashamed of myself for allowing this to happen.

When I ask my husband not to call me stupid, especially in front of our kids, he says he only does it when I act stupid.

I have a very good job where I am given a lot of responsibility and respect. I can’t believe my husband thinks this is OK. He makes me feel so inadequate.

Your advice?

— Had It

Dear Had It: I’m trying to see the connection between your father’s death and your husband’s verbal abuse. Perhaps the removal of a symbolic (or actual) authority figure from your life triggered this domineering and disrespectful behavior from your husband.

Now, you need to be your own authority.

Unless your husband’s illness has affected his behavior or cognition, I don’t see why you should continue to give him “leeway” when he tells you to shut up or calls you “stupid.”

It is a sad fact that over a decade of this treatment has left you feeling inadequate, when in reality this is revealing your husband’s inadequacy and insecurity.

You should start demonstrating that this behavior is unacceptable. When your husband does this, do not engage him or attempt to argue the topic. Stay calm and say something like, “This language is demeaning; it is unacceptable. You need to find a better way to talk to me.” And then remove yourself from his presence. Do not tolerate this from your children. Verbally abusing you harms you and them.

Is it bad that I sorta want Hydra cap? Obviously not cap willingly being apart of it but maybe similar in a way that Clint was brainwashed?

If what marvel was doing was akin to Clint being brainwashed, with a scene where Steve was forcibly mentally overwhelmed via comic book science it would be a different matter, but that’s not what marvel’s doing. What they are doing is monstrous, they are blatantly using Nazi imagery, influences from Nazi propaganda and a complete disregard for everything Cap is meant to be to create a narrative where fascism is the new exciting thing and our hero is and has always been our oppressor. This isn’t darkfic published under heavy warnings on AO3 intended as an exploration of character and morality under stress, Hydra Cap is intended as a deeply shocking and deliberate corruption of a character with incredible meaning to the oppressed, to be sold as the official byline of an influential company. More than that, Marvel is saying one of their historically most moral and justice loving characters is and has always been a Nazi. They have removed a powerful symbol of allyship and told us he was never with us foolish oppressed people anyways. They have made a character steeped in Jewish culture into a Nazi. They have explicitly shown Hydra Cap as “righteous” holding Mjolnir, thats literally saying Nazism is just and explicitly glorifying it. Its telling any white supremacist and racist and Nazi that they are righteous. That is incredibly, monumentally disgusting and inexcusable.

The fact that they have also made Magneto, a holocaust survivor into a Hydra operative is evil. It’s part of an effort to move Hyrda away from it’s alignment to Nazism, which honestly just makes Nazi ideology even more appealing to white supremacists. While they try and distance Hydra from Nazis, they also have really doubled down on their use of Nazi imagery, ideology and rhetoric in Secret Empire. I mean they have Inhumans being put in camps and operatives hail-ing all over the place for fucks sake, marvel it’s not subtle. By attempting to remove the association with Nazis, Marvel is making the ideals of Nazism something exciting, entertaining and appealing to a larger audience. It’s much easier to be a Nazi when you don’t consider yourself one and Captain America is backing you up.

If marvel was presenting Steve as having been brainwashed and his unwilling support of Nazism as a horrifying thing, I still wouldn’t be thrilled, but i wouldn’t be angry and afraid the way Hydra Cap makes me. Marvel is empowering real life Nazis through this storyline, and I can’t think of anything more incredibly monstrous and sinister. 

Don’t support it. Ignoring Secret Emipre’s connection to the rise of fascism in the real world is reckless and ignorant at best.

@marvelentertainment and @nickspencerly have ignored the Jewish roots of the characters they are dealing with with cries of “it’s just fiction, don’t take it so seriously” and “good you’re angry, that means I am successful”. (i am paraphrasing here, their irl replies are much nastier) while either ignoring or revelling in the strong negative effect their explicit support of fascism has.

So Hyrda Cap in fic, before it was canon, with Steve as an unwilling participant is a whole different beast than the canon, loaded with Nazi rhetoric Hydra Cap. I’m not sure it can anymore be considered just to give any support to any form of Hydra Cap, even in fic, even in your scenario. 

Real life Nazis use Hydra symbols and Hydra cap as images to justify their cause! It’s terrifying and marvel doesn’t seem care at all about the effect they are having on real life facism! I’m an art historian i KNOW how powerful images are and this is fucking terrifying especially since the creators are denying the power of their images!

My school district refuses to remove confederate symbols from my high school campus

I am a student at Robert E. Lee high school in San Antonio, Texas. When you walk into Robert E. Lee high school, the first thing you will see is a giant statue of Robert E. Lee. Imagine being an African American student and having to walk into school every day looking at a man who fought for the enslavement of your ancestors. Robert E. Lee high school is the oldest school in the North East Independent School district. The school mascot is a “volunteer” appearing in a red and gray confederate army uniform and looking a lot like Robert himself. The school colors are red and gray which are the confederate colors. The pep squad is called the “confederettes”, The JV drill team is called the “dixie drillers” and the varsity dance team is called the “rebel rousers”.  Progress this summer was made when two confederate emblems were removed from the campus. This summer, a peer of mine, Kayla Wilson, sought to get rid of all confederate symbols from my school and change the name. At first, the district wouldn’t even put the name change up for discussion. After a long battle of board meetings and a petition with over 11,000 people, the school board voted not to change anything about my school. “Dec 11, 2015 — On Monday night NEISD Board voted NOT to rename Robert E Lee H.S . Board Trustee Wheat pleaded with fellow Board members to give the students and faculty an opportunity to voice their opinion and grievances. He requested a committee made up of teachers, administrators, and community to do surveys, obtain facts, and submit alternate names. He stated"we have not done enough to make this decision". Board Trustee White gave his testimony, as a African American the name offended him, and “we should not have to constantly defend the name of our schools for someone who is so controversial”. White reiterated Robert E Lee was the general of the confederacy, and fought to continue slavery. 


Superintendent Gottardy and Board Trustees Grona, Bresnahan, Hughey, and Perkins stated they had done enough research to make this decision and felt burdened to continue any additional effort. Board Trustee Perkins mocked Trustee Wheat attempt to add the voices of the students , teachers, and PTA.

The board meeting ended with an item being place on the Agenda to look into all symbol, icons, and songs tied to the confederacy. This Agenda item will be reviewed in the spring.

Please review the video below and review the response of the Board members. Unlike other communities like , Houston, Austin, Princeton, UT and even Robert E Lee’s Washington and Lee University recommended a discussion.

San Antonio NEISD refused discussion. Board Trustees did not feel the voice of its students or faculty matter for this decision.

Please email your Board Members why community matters. Why facts are important. Please tell them ALL are children voices’ matter.”

Robert E Lee was a confederate who fought for the enslavement of black people in the United States. He fought to maintain the continued subjugation of Blacks in America’s south. My school district perpetuates a racist culture by keeping racist symbols on my campus. 

The dance team and cheerleader coach threatened to their students that if the name change was posted about on social media or talked about at school, girls would be kicked off the team immediately. 

Faculty members were fired for talking about it on social media as well. 

The petition didn’t make a difference. The school board meeting didn’t make a difference. Very few individuals in San Antonio, Texas want to change the school name to make African American students comfortable. 

PLEASE MAKE THIS POST GO VIRAL SO WE CAN CHANGE THE NAME OF MY HIGH SCHOOL AND REMOVE ALL CONFEDERATE SYMBOLS!

A more in depth Post-Trespasser/game outfit chart for Feyrien. Tried to age him up a little since he’d be in his early 40′s by that time (or I assume so in DA4 lol). He kept the Inquisition under the Chantry as a peacekeeping force, so I merged the two styles together.

Some believe Feyrien’s eye going blind after the Mark’s removal is more symbolic and spiritual than it actually is. He just thinks it’s painfully ironic.

anonymous asked:

sorry for being stupid, but, wdym merge your cc?

ok so i got multiple questions about this, so I thought it might be good to make a tutorial! Basically it gathers all the CC packages you have in your game and makes it one big file. This makes it easier for your game to read the file and speeds up the process of loading and general gameplay. I’m putting the tutorial on how to merge CC under a cut because I have a feeling this post might be a bit too long lol.

Keep reading

here is quick lil thing before they fused,

their face markings are different and cap is almost fully dressed, but he dislikes it greatly and often fidgets he would change it but then i wouldn’t be seen as full ‘uniform’  

they have diamond symbols but remove them when they move to earth, im thinking they served pink diamond before serving yellow, krupp really dislikes the diamonds pink was ok better than yellow anyway, he doesnt like the face that he cant talk back or get mad at them.                                                                       cu is only loyal out of kindness, seeing as he is pretty oblivious to a good and bad situation but neither of them are overly obsessed with he diamonds as peridot and hollyblue are but they please them enough  

It’s exactly what I thought: A Chris Metzen piece from 1997 used as the first step inspiration with refinement later on (removal of confederate symbols because Overwatch doesn’t have a confederate villain faction like SC did).

I mean, the one on the right is almost a direct copy, with aspects removed later. It carried over the confederate thing from the old art lmao. 

anonymous asked:

Something I noticed on my second viewing of the movie--after Yondu takes the Ravager flame patch off to show to Baby Groot, he never puts it back on. What's he thinking? Does removing it symbolize anything in particular to Ravagers? (I have so many questions about how the whole Ravager code/society works...)

Just when I think this movie has run out of ways to hurt me …

For his entire adult life, Yondu has worn the flame patch of the Ravagers. He doesn’t have to look down to know it’s not there after he hands it to the little tree kid. He can feel its absence, like a missing limb.

Or maybe it’s the phantom pain of a limb that was cut off years ago.

Some things you can’t go back from.

He tried to walk too many lines, that’s all. Broke the code and knew it. Tried to go on being a Ravager anyway. Told himself he was one.

Let a scrawny Terran kid stay on his ship even though he knew it was a bad idea, because the little bastard wormed his way into that cold empty place in his soul before Yondu knew what was happening. But he couldn’t go all the way to actually be the dad the kid needed, hell no, which was why Ego could take Peter and twist him around his finger the way he’d wanted to all those years ago, like all those other dead kids.

Did a shit job of being a Ravager, shit job of being a father, and this is where it gets him: half his crew is dead, other half is gonna be dead as soon as Rocket’s little tree friend gets done bringing him everything in his quarters except his spare fin, and Quill’s run off and got himself in the one place in the universe where he’s most likely to end up dead.

Tried to be two different things and ended up being none of ‘em.

Stakar’s right. Yondu can dress like a Ravager, but that doesn’t make him one.

He leaves the flame patch to burn in the real flames of his dying ship. There is no going back, only forward.

Budget Altar Craft

Let me start by saying you don’t need an altar. However if you have the space and desire to set one up (even a tiny one in a cigar box) here are some ideas for altar goodies.

  • Pressed leaves and flowers, acorns, even small bits of bark and snail shells can help to bring the outside inside and reaffirm your connection to nature, if you leverage a connection to the earth in your practice.
  • Place a small glass bottle of charged water on your altar. It can be used in workings, to anoint yourself, to represent the element of water, or just hang around and soak up that good altar juju.
  • Use small solid items to represent the elements. A smooth pebble for earth, a seashell for water, a feather or figurine of a bird for air, and a vial of ash or bit of charred wood or a lump of coal for fire.
  • Use the terra cotta dish from a small flower pot as a place to hold crystals, herbs and small items for enchantment. Or as an offering plate for dry offerings. Or as a plate to hold sigils you’re using in your current workings.
  • Small boxes from craft stores are generally cheap and you can decorate them. Use them to hold matches, small candles, small ephemera for spells, as a box to hold vials of herbs, or enchant it as a sort of cosmic mailbox so that sigils or intents written on paper placed inside will be charged or manifested.
  • An item doesn’t have to be “mainstream witchy” and aesthetic to deserve a place on your altar. Do you have a piece of jewelry or figurine or keychain that’s important to you or sentimental? Let it live on your altar as a reminder that the mundane is sacred,too (I had a rubber ducky on my altar for a few months to help me be like a duck and let certain situations roll off my back and to maintain outward composure.)
  • Check out yard sales, estate sales, and random junk places for altar stuff. At one time I used a hunk of broken tv screen as a scrying glass that I found in a junk pile. I lost it in a move and still miss it.
  • Make small paintings of rocks to represent your dieties.
  • Do you have a hobby or skill that requires frequent practice? Find or make a small object to represent it on your altar to sanctify the practice and remind you to make time for it.
  • Oil burners (the kind for tealights) can sometimes be expensive. However the mini versions can usually be found for around a dollar or so.
  • Found some nifty thing outside that called you to grab it, but have no idea what to do with it? Place it on your altar as a reminder to use your resources creatively.
  • Look over your current altar set up. Is everything on it important to you? How much of you is there? If you’re holding on to stuff that doesn’t particularly resonate just for aesthetics, ritualize the practice of redecorating your altar. As you remove things that don’t serve you, let the practice be symbolic of removing obstacles, blockages, or ideas from your life that don’t serve you anymore. As you place new things, let that represent being receptive to new things that will serve you better.
  • Go mini. As with oil warmers, small things are often cheaper than their larger counterparts. Tarot Decks, Crystals, Candles and Holders, Bottles and Jars. Tiny things are cute, useful, and cheap.
  • Use Symbolic stand-ins to call items you want on your altar into your life. Draw or print out small pictures of crystals, scrying tools, crystal balls, etc, and place them on your altar, ritualistically summoning their real counterparts into your life.
  • See your altar as a personal temple. Don’t feel required to clutter it up with ephemera or make it super extra just -because-. Appreciate it as a place to connect with your spirituality, not a display shelf.

anonymous asked:

Hi, I have a question about NDE that maybe you/followers could answer? If it wasn't just a chemical reaction in our brains, why would we see nature, trees, flowers, etc, if nature is proper to earth and to the physical world? I mean the universe is infinite, why would we see nature? I think it proves that it's just something which happen in our brain before we die

Some people see nature other people see other things.Perhaps people see these things like grass or cities because they are familiar with them and seeing everything at once maybe overwhelming. 

Regardless from what I’ve read a lot of people see things in an unearthly way. It’s impossible to describe to us because it would be like explaining a new color. 

I think that a lot of what people see they interpret it based on what they were grew up with, so there are some cultural human interpretations Like some people may describe the bright white light as Jesus and others Buddha. But I don’t think that means NDE’s are a just a physical things that happens to the brain, I think it meant there’s a lot more to it and people use what they know to describe it once coming back. And their descriptions will never quite cover what they actually felt. Words are symbols twice removed. Somethings you can only experience. 

anonymous asked:

Alright, I'm gonna say this based on the special effects and how a brief gif looks of Dean ripping his face off in one shot, and next there's no skin he's gripping at all, but (pink?) goo coming down: not a shifter. Or it is a shifter, but something else is going on beyond just shape shifting grossness.

x Yeah, I’m interested to see what it is as I have seen different POV’s on this.

IMO, so far, for now, I don’t believe it’s a shifter as I think this kind of important mask-removing symbolism would be part of the real Dean’s story as it is so important it should be him and only him. I therefore hope it is Dean and not a shifter. What it is happening to him idk, perhaps he’s been (temporarily) turned into a new type of shifter or it’s a spell or something, but I hope it is him and not someone else. That’s what makes most sense to me re the symbolism.

If it is a shifter / someone else then IMO the symbolism isn’t as strong. BUT let’s see! We have very little to work with and it could be anything and depending on how it’s done it could still totally be relevant I just think it works best if it is real Dean :)

serbronzefyre  asked:

What is Euron's obsession with ripping out people's tongues and when did? The murder of his younger half brother in the crib would imply that he's always had some obsession with silencing people but where does this obsession stem from?

(TWOW spoilers)

I don’t think Euron killed Robin to “silence” him, but yeah, given the name of Euron’s ship (and its figurehead), this is clearly an atrocity near and dear to Euron’s tentacled heart. 

There are several layers to this. One, of course, is purely sadistic: Euron finds intense gratification in hurting, humiliating, and subjugating people, raising (for example) Falia’s hopes high before bringing them crashing down. It’s common for abusers to demand silence and then take any deviation from that as an excuse to inflict pain. That he focuses specifically on removing tongues suggests that he’s hiding secrets; of course, as @nobodysuspectsthebutterfly pointed out, cutting out someone’s tongues doesn’t prevent them from communicating, but when taken in combination with the rarity of literacy, the fearful awe Euron instills in his crew (Cragorn, for example), and the ongoing mystery of where exactly Euron has and hasn’t been in his travels, I think it’s fair to say that silencing is his goal. “No one must ever know.” 

The last layer I’ll touch on here is religious: the silence of the gods.

“Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air…I know them all. I have seen their peoples garland them with flowers, and shed the blood of goats and bulls and children in their names. And I have heard the prayers, in half a hundred tongues. Cure my withered leg, make the maiden love me, grant me a healthy son. Save me, succor me, make me wealthy…protect me! Protect me from mine enemies, protect me from the darkness, protect me from the crabs inside my belly, from the horselords, from the slavers, from the sellswords at my door. Protect me from the Silence.

“I think if I drowned you, you’ll stay drowned. All gods are lies, but yours is laughable. A pale white thing in the likeness of a man, his limbs broken and swollen and his hair flipping in the water while fish nibble at his face. What fool would worship that?”

“Harlon was my first. All I had to do was pinch his nose shut. The greyscale had turned his mouth to stone so he could not cry out. But his eyes grew frantic as he died. They begged me. When the life went out of them, I went out and pissed into the sea, waiting for the god to strike me down. None did.”

“Kneel, brother,” the Crow’s Eye commanded. “I am your king, I am your god. Worship me, and I will raise you up to be my priest.”

When Euron removes your tongue, he’s symbolically cutting you off from the gods, who now cannot hear your (vocalized) prayers, and he’s saying that those gods don’t exist anyway or they would’ve stopped him, so worship him instead.

Lately, there seems to be some new desire to distance the alt-right (and their annoying pseudo-intellectualism through memes and sarcasm) from National Socialism. Thank God! How little National Socialism needs you or your fuck-ass frog! It is a stand alone ideology and I would be overjoyed to see its symbolism removed from your ironic, pseudo-capitalist, civic nationalist, usage.

National Socialism needs only fresh air, wet soil, open skies, a myth, and a bizarre two legged creature with a song in its heart and a spark of insanity!

Perspective | Reverend and rabbi: Removing symbols of racism isn’t enough, we need policy action
Doing justice means voting rights, addressing school-to-prison pipeline, educational inequity.

“As clergy, we refuse to be silent as people in our communities continue to face threats based on the color of their skin or the manner in which they pray. Micah 6:8 teaches us “to do justice. To love mercy. And to walk humbly with your God” – these are active, not passive, pursuits. We are enjoined to seek and create the change that our world so desperately needs.“
