repeating-this-post-because-of-reasons

anonymous asked:

Really bothers me that your blog is now less about pride and more about gatekeeping a community you do not belong to. Especially since you are being so disrespectful of others' opinions by calling them bullshit.

Oh man, not this again.  Well, anon, I don’t know if you were around when the whole xenogender debate came up on this blog, but I would prefer not to revisit that argument, especially since quite a few people on the tucute side of things seem to have a difficult time debating an issue without throwing around baseless claims of transphobia, cissexism, etc.  I won’t repeat any of my views here - because I don’t want the shit-slinging to start up again - but if you want my reasoning for them I suggest reading this, as well as this post and this one.  And if you still think I’m committing some sort of heinous crime for having an opinion on NB issues as a cis person, I recommend reading this post.

Honestly, I wish my blog could go back to being more so just about my pride art and positivity, but what I’ve learned over the year or so I’ve been running it is that it’s utterly impossible to reference any issue faced by human beings - particularly humans in a minority - without having to drag politics/debate into it at some point.  After all, these gender/sexuality labels aren’t just pretty decorations for people to put on their About pages to make them feel special - even though some people on tumblr unfortunately treat them that way.  They are the identities and experiences of real life people, who often face very real hardships because of them.  

I shouldn’t need to tell you that transphobia is sadly a very real issue in society, and it’s one that’s often ignored and covered up by the majority.  While my dinosaurs may look cute and inane, the identities they stand for are anything but.  There are real transgender people - dysphoric people - who follow me and perhaps find some sort of happiness in my work, and I consider it my responsibility as a cis ally (and, I like to think, as a decent human being) to refrain from trivializing the issues they have faced.  These “genders” that are based around clouds, or the ocean, or personality traits for Christ’s sake, are the epitome of trivializing transgender people, and the reality of gender dysphoria that they grapple with. 

True, it may be “disrespecting” the opinion of tucutes to call their made up genders bullshit, but I honestly don’t think it’s an opinion that deserves to be respected.  And if you think I don’t deserve to have this opinion due to me being cisgender, remember that there are PLENTY of trans people against this concept as well.  Before you accuse me of being disrespectful, I suggest you take a long, hard look in the mirror at yourself, and consider the kind of dangerous attitude you and your ilk are spreading in prioritizing the feelings of non-dysphoric “stargenders” over the lives of real, dysphoric trans people. 

So tldr: I am done with this discussion, and I honestly couldn’t care less if you are “bothered” or offended by my blog or my opinions.  You know where the unfollow button is.  And this goes for anyone else who tries to bring this topic back up - you know where I stand on it, and I would rather have you all unfollow or block me instead of barging into my ask box whining about how I’m such a horrible gatekeeping transphobe.   

I NEED HELP FINDING A POST

It’s that one remix of All Star by Smash Mouth and…like…it’s the one with “on her forehead” repeated over and over again, but it’s like…the lyrics just all remixed and shit? 

Please. I need this because reasons. 

@wingedscribe? @murderandcoffee? @theorangedead?? @sikizu??? Just in case you all tagged this at some point??? 

here’s what’s up!

Hey all! First of all, I’ll repeat my annoying mantra: I know I don’t post here much (just to share my shipper nonsense mostly), but I’m much more active on my twitter (more bloodborne less shipper nonsense though). 

A reason for my quietness on tumblr has been because I’ve working on my webcomic the last few months! (See: that last post.) And now the first chapter is finally complete! I know it’s far from perfect, but it’s been a highly experimental learning process, especially for someone like me who struggles a lot with colors. It’s been years since I’ve done a steady webcomic, and I’m so glad to finally be back on that horse!

There will still be fanart on this blog, of course. But, maybe a lot of original stuff too. Who knows - it may get a lot more active here. Thanks everyone!!

would like to read the #asari critical posts and opinions.

not to start fights ( i still think about the last and the whole thing was dumb and instigated by me, not looking to have a repeat, considering apologizing for my behavior but I don’t how it will be taken by said tumblr user. )

but I suppose its to gain a more well rounded veiw on them because I know a lot of the asari characters are not perfect and the way and reason for their creation has always negatively defaulted to blue alien babes to tickle testicles and I myself am highly biased and perhaps need to be grounded so further looks into them will not be through biased eyes, ya feel?

Like they will always be my favorite ( no doubt about it ) but I would like to be practical about this going forward. So I want them I guess, sent on anon or not, or tagged in a post about it, or linked to me I don’t really care, I just want to read it all.

Because Susan Stryker and other people (such as Sandy Stone, etc) have found this blog and many not in the joke are convinced this is real I feel like I should make a public statement, outside of the jokes, stating that this is a parody.

The reason this account exists is because baeddels are real. They are unfortunately very real. Every post on this blog is referring to real positions people have taken in this group - such as saying white trans women have white privilege or that all CAMAB people are potential trans women or that the people who have been pushed out of these communities over the Baeddel’s support of a rapist are actually the abusers.

Many of the positions are a repeat of the flaws of second wave radical feminism with it’s focus on a universal womanhood (which has been critiqued for decades as racist) and it’s essentializing of womanhood and assigned sex. The community dynamics (as seen in some of the posts we’ve reblogged without commentary) of this group have also been centered around defending rapists and abusers who have harmed other trans women.

The reason this blog exists is because this group has enjoyed a hegemonic position in many online trans woman communities and their abuse and their racist discourse goes unchallenged.

anonymous asked:

Why are you posting so much about black history month? You're white. Stay on our side bitch.

‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

We obviously haven’t learned from the past because we’re literally repeating it. Black men, women, and children are being MURDERED in the streets by the people who claim to protect and serve and you’re whining at me about not being on the “White side” 

I’m a white girl with a moderate following on social media. I’m using that to uplift the voices of POC because for some fucking reason their words are ignored by dumbasses like you who can’t see past petty racism. If it doesn’t scare you that people can be literally cut down in the streets, have their water poisoned, and be forced into poverty and prison simply for the color of their skin, your head is so far up your ass you’ll need a surgery to pull it from your colon. 

Black Lives Matter. That’s why I post so much about black history month.

PS.


(I hope I’m not overstepping btw. If I am feel free to let me know!) 

FBF anons

For anyone who just wants to bypass this post, feel free to. It’s just me and @fascinated-by-fangirls have a grand ole pissing match. ;)

Thanks, FBF anon. Now I understand what you meant. As for “implying drugs/alcohol was a part of the Dish”—obviously it wasn’t there because it never came from my sources and I said as much. One does get tired of having to repeat themselves.

I’ll save you the trouble. Again I have no reason to delete anything. Everything that has been published since the very beginning have remained. If I was hiding anything, then I would have deleted them by now. According to you and the other peons there’s quite a bit to delete since you all consider it libel and slander. As for the quote you used–what else was I supposed to say? It is true. Would anyone honestly admit to being an alcoholic or junkie in public during a professional event? I didn’t say he was or wasn’t. Nice of you to put words in my mouth.

So throwing this one in since you believe I’m “hiding” shit. Again–maybe meaning perhaps he does or doesn’t. It’s not a definitive answer.

Go for it. I dare you. As for me being liable for anything posted here, BULLSHIT. If that was the case, I would have been shut down long ago and there is the bit about the C&D I did receive. ;) It must really stick in your fan girl ass that Tom and his people have been here on TOBY. But since you’re so adamant, PROVE IT. 

Wow, nice of you to block out your followers’ name–not mine of course but the others I’m surprised you weren’t considerate with. At least I have the respect to block out those who follow me so they’re not harassed. But anyway, I already admitted I read your blog so not sure what “joke” you’re trying to throw my way. My point was you were going on about how no one really cares to read my blog but your ass is front and center reading every little word. Talk about being a hypocrite. ;)

If any of my people follow avianawareness I advise you unfollow her, or remain as you are but review her material with scrutiny. I appreciate bird knowledge being in circulation, but she sucks. 


I’m a little fired because she made her own post about this one article on parrots and ptsd which I posted about, and she’s been downright awful and aggressively ableist in the past for no reason, which lead me to get in a massive argument with her. 


I’ve compromised justice before in my life because I thought the perpetrator behind it was doing enough good that it did not matter, and in the end I made the situation worse. I’d rather not repeat that mistake. So consider me super irked.

Can people please stop tagging their Kosaki hate? I don’t care how much you dislike her and how often you have to repeat the same reasons to explain why you think like that (the same reasons which other haters stated many times before you… Can’t you guys get a bit more creative?) but fans who look at that tag want to enjoy posts about Kosaki without seeing any hate against her. So state your hate anywhere else please because you are not simply saying your opinion, you are being rude to Kosaki’s fandom. We love her and she is our Queen, and nothing what you say is going to change this.

i’m fairly sure party banter in inquisition has NEVER worked properly for me. Like mostly my party would be silent and wouldn’t say new things even if I constantly shuffled them around. I spent a whole playthrough with practically just cassandra, dorian and varric and I feel like I maybe just about heard all the things they say to one another. However post game they start repeating the same thing - which ironically is the bet between varric and dorian about whether we will save the world. The fact this is what gets repeated AFTER we have saved the world drives me nuts. 

I think it really detracted from the game for me because I did so much travelling and the interactions are so well scripted and give you real insight, but I barely heard any. It’s probably one of the reasons I didn’t feel nearly as attached to the characters since in DA:2 they wont shut up and I love that.

anonymous asked:

Well I think that maybe you guys should hand the blog back to Crystal? It's too censored and people can't express their feelings freely without there being a banned topic.

I love how you immediately assume she wants to administer JRPC again.

The reason why JRPC has become too censored is because of what the community has become.  Read my reply to the previous anon here again, I’m sick of having to repeat myself. If you want me to make JRPC less censored, then sure. I honestly would love not having to read each confession word for word and delete those that don’t make the cut. Being able to post them all up would save me the hassle, and I’d honestly love for everyone to be able to express their opinions and emotions freely! But that’s only if the community improves and reaches a point where censoring isn’t necessary because honestly, the only reason why there’s a need for censorship is because of you all.

So instead of telling the administrative team to change, how about you try and get the community itself to change since it’s actually the root of the problem? Once everyone can be trusted to not need censorship, then let’s talk.

Peru 2015 - Day Moth

External image

I have no explanation for this one, so I’ll just describe what happened.

I was shooting the fish, which were up near the surface .. presumably because there’s more oxygen there and fewer predators than below.

Then I saw this moth flying near. It dropped in amongst the fish several times. At first, I thought that it has gotten nabbed and was having a hard time flying away, but it’s repeated behavior showed that it – for some reason – wanted to be there in the middle of all of the fish. Was it laying eggs? Did it want to be eaten? Maybe it was a reporter on assignment.

There’s no way to know. Sometimes all you can do is take the shot.

There shouldn't even be a look of love when they're in MIDDLE SCHOOL. They're young and this show could go on for many season, and I'm sure the writers will start getting into the whole relationship stuff next season. Any ship is possible at this moment, and so what if Maya and Farkle never looked at each-other with love? They're all friends, that's all there is right now. If people find their interactions romantic then let it be.

First I’d like to repeat what I said in my post which is that I’m not trying to change anyone’s opinion everyone has their own ships and if Markle is their thing good for them. I really am just curious and would like reasons as to why they see them even having couple potential, because I just don’t see it and the writer’s in my opinion have made it very clear that there is only friendship between them. 

They are not all JUST friends right now. If they were all only friends right now we wouldn’t have the “triangle” I put it in quotes because there is obviously much more going on than just a simple triangle right now. There are definitely romantic feelings going on right now whether they know exactly what they are or not. 

Also, at 14/15 years old there can definitely be looks of love. If there can’t be someone needs to tell the core 4 that. Why can’t they be “in love” even if it is just young love while in middle school? I sure know I was in love in middle school and I definitely knew the difference between my guy just friends and the guys I wanted to be my boyfriends. The writers have said that the story has been clear, hahaha maybe to them, obviously not to the rest of us since the beginning. They already know who the “couples” will be, this is the story about how they get there. They have already got to the relationship ship stuff, if they hadn’t we wouldn’t have first date, Texas 2 or 3, heck or New Year’s for that matter. All next season is going to do is sort out those feelings that they are all unsure of. 

Back to my original point, I really just want to be given some solid evidence as to why people ship them, to me it just seems like a very far out there ship and I am just a curious person. 

ok so the only reason why i didnt want to repeat xiaoyu for katsucon is because my wig is so bad lmaoaooo but… i think i can get away with my hair???? like im going to dye it darker anyways so i think…. i maaay do xiaoyu instead of yachi for friday evening cuz i rly wanted to do her again buUTTTTT idk ; v ; oh ya also i had drop mitsuba cuz the wig didnt come in and the uniform is way too short and shows half my butt LOL ill post the LEGIT LEGIT lineup the night before lmao meeps

This Is Why A Night Of Heavy Drinking Is So Bad For Your Skin

It’s not those late-night cheese fries that give your face that undeniable gray, tired appearance the morning after a night out on the town.


Nope. Usually, the reason you wake up haggard-looking after having a couple of drinks is because you’re dehydrated and under-rested.

And while you can probably pull off being hungover for one torturous day, the long-term effects associated with repeated hangovers can do major damage to your skin. 


“Alcohol causes dehydration,” Dr. Amy Wechsler, a board-certified dermatologist and psychiatrist in Manhattan told The Huffington Post. “It dehydrates and dries the skin out, and skin isn’t as plump.” Dehydrated skin often feels tight and looks flaky, effects that dramatize the appearance of fine lines. Skin looseness, redness and itching can also take hold on your face. Not pretty.





Maybe more damaging than dehydration, however, are the effects that too little sleep has on the skin, Wechsler said. “This is not a direct side effect of alcohol, but it’s a common secondary side effect.”


Many think a nightcap guarantees a solid night of zzz’s, but as it turns out, the exact opposite is true. While alcohol promotes fatigue that could help your head hit the pillow faster, the quality of sleep you experience on a belly full of booze is not so good. An abundance of research suggests that alcohol encourages a disturbed sleep, which leads to groggy mornings and poor concentration that lasts all day


What does this all have to do with your skin? “During sleep is when our cortisol level is lowest,” said Wechsler. Skin has the opportunity to repair itself at nighttime, when you’re not busy putting it through the trauma of your daily commute and dinners at greasy Chinese food restaurants.


When you’re not getting healthy sleep, cortisol (the stress hormone) is still surging, she said. When this happens, the skin becomes inflamed, breaking down the skin’s collagen, which is meant to keep the skin plump, firm and fresh-looking. As a result, fine lines and thin, dry skin are formed. 


If you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to be able to enjoy happy hour without compromising your appearance, consider taking some of the simple preventative measures we’ve outlined below. Let’s raise a glass (of water) to healthier skin from here on out.


1. Alternate booze with water. 





“Drink a full glass of water for every alcoholic drink you have,” Weschler prescribes. If you alternative between the two, the water will keep you hydrated and also prevent you from downing more gin and tonics than you soberly planned. 


2. Prioritize sleep.





This one’s a biggy. Running on poor quality sleep isn’t just bad for your skin: It negatively impacts virtually every aspect of your life. Want to be happier? Get quality sleep. Want to perform better at work? Commit to a healthy 7 to 8 hours under the covers. Feel like you might sucker-punch your best friend? A nap is in order.


“In America we think of sleep as a luxury instead of a necessity,” Weschler said. “Everyone’s burning a candle at both ends and sleep is the first to go. It’s really bad for health – mental and physical.” Prioritizing sleep can prevent everything from wrinkles to illogical shouting matches, so there’s definitely good reason to put sleep at the top of your to-do list. If you’re looking for ways to sleep better, check out these 37 science-backed tips


3. Exercise.





A sweat-inducing workout can increase the circulation in your skin, Weschler said, giving you a nice rosy glow. The escalated blood flow also helps to flush debris out of your system


Better yet, an endorphin-fueling workout could help negate those lousy emotional feelings that come with a hangover. Just make sure not to over-do it; if you’re hungover, you’re dehydrated, so you’ll need to take it easy and keep a water bottle close.


4. Wash your face.





First, you’ll want to clean off the sweat that came from the circulation-boosting workout. Experts recommend washing your face as soon as you can post-sweat session to prevent clogged pores and acne. 


A cleansing routine is just as important after a night of table dancing watching “The Bachelor” with your friends and a couple glasses of wine. As Weschler mentioned, the skin does a lot of self-repair and rejuvenation while you sleep. If you don’t give it a clean slate to start with, it’ll increase your risk for breakouts, wrinkles and aging skin.

Week 9 - Project 2 “Anatomy of Architecture” Sub-theme “The Body” - (further rejected? images)

I’ve also decided to post the other versions I created for the image I posted in the previous post, to record my experimentation. 

Reflection:  I like the first one in the previous post, because of the shape, however the others. which are shown here,had a nice explosive effect in the sky which fits in better with the ‘blonde bombshell’ idea.  In the first image here, just not sure about the colour of the main building and in the second image, not sure about the shape. The 3rd image is an alternative possibility perhaps but the feature building itself is somewhat less dynamic?  I did the post-editing sky effects in Nik Collection, but couldn’t repeat that efect in the chosen image, for some reason. 

to whoever is sending me these anon message about Ben…I get it, please, stop repeating yourself over and over with what you are saying because it’s already burned in my mind. there is a reason why I didn’t and don’t answer to any of those six message publicly and I really don’t want to disable anon messages because of one person who is slowly going on my nerves :’D
