​A/N: this series may contain sensitive or triggering topics for some, I’ll do my best to put them in the warnings.  Just be advised it’s going to get dark.


“Why are you in such a pissy mood?” Balz, the keyboardist of Motionless in White, asks as he watches Ricky smoke another full carton of cigarettes. Normally Ricky is pretty chill, but since he’d come in last night he’s been a total dickhead.

( My English Language may not be the best because it’s not my first language, so I hope this whole thing makes sense. )

This is the most hard hitting answer I have ever done. This is it- this is the important answer I was talking about. I wanted it to be done right- to be special, and yet- I missed it. 

This message is for everyone

I want to still share the answer I made. I want this to be a something you can learn from, to grow from, to understand something so very important about the value of the life you have been given. This is not a post directed to one person- it’s directed to all the people who’ve lost someone important. Friends, family- anyone. Please read this and remember that your life is just the same as theirs- valuable.


-UPDATE-

Well, apparently, she hasn’t passed. She’s alive! (http://boneheadtadashi.tumblr.com/post/109528277258/read-please)

Apparently, in this situation at hand, her boyfriend’s been lied to. I don’t know what reason that is, but the point is- she’s alive and she still has a chance. Let’s keep hoping for the best because she’s still in the hospital, fighting for this one life she has. This post is still a big lesson for all of us about how valuable life is, so I’m not taking it down.



I would like to talk about the anon that made this ask.

This Anon- her name is Lily (1999 - 2015). She is a Big Hero Six fan, just like you and me. Her mother passed away recently, and she’s been in a low state of depression. She was hurting, she was doing self harm. What made her have hope was watching this movie, being a part of our community, our fandom- and yet, it ended up like this.

Her boyfriend’s name is Adam (http://boneheadtadashi.tumblr.com/) , a boy filled with regrets about how he wasn’t there, how he should’ve been there, how he could’ve saved her. He’s having negative thoughts. No youth his age deserves to feel such a heavy weight like this on his shoulders. He needs support, he needs to know that he did nothing wrong. Because for sure- he didn’t do anything wrong.

And yet, he feels like he’s done it all wrong. He needs understanding, he needs security. He needs to know that he should never give up. Now, this website is usually all against harm, all for helping others and giving hope. I want to see that. I want to see this happen, at least with one person’s life- with Adam’s life. Let him know that he needs to learn how to grow with this pain and become stronger- because, let’s face it: we’ve all had this story before. We’ve all lost someone. I’ve lost a lot of people, you’ve lost a lot of people, and yet, here we are, still breathing, still living this journey we call life. Why do we? What motivates us? For me, it’s the power of knowing that I have a purpose to live for. I don’t know what that purpose is, but I’ll get there one day. So as for now, I feel like what I must do is to touch others, to share things that can make a difference in someone’s life- and knowing that things do get better. They always do.

Give Adam comforting words and thoughts. He needs them right now.

Send Lilles for Lilly. 

Spread this post to someone you love, tell someone you love that you love them every single day, remember that your life is as valuable as anyone else’s, because you have only one.

May this beautiful young girl Rest in Peace.

AGUST D

there are so many important messages that suga is trying to convey to his listeners through his mixtape and im sure that if you’ve read the lyric translations, you definitely know what i mean. i am seriously blown away that we’ve been fans of bts for what, 3 years now? for 3 years, ARMYs have easily labelled yoongi as ‘lazy’, given him that ‘idagf’ image, and yet, we were oblivious to so many of his hardships. we’ve always known that he’s hardworking, more quiet than the other members, and more reflective, but this mixtape honestly blew me away because yoongi’s gone through so much in his idol career and we had no idea. 

first off, he touches on a sensitive topic that idols don’t speak openly about: mental health. he raps about seeing a psychiatrist, battling with depression, self-hate, experiencing social phobia since age 18, putting on a front, and loneliness. His entire song “The Last” really touches on this:

a word said like habit, oh, I don’t give a shit, I don’t give a fuck
those words are all words I use to hide my weak self
that time I want to erase, that’s right, the memories I want to erase of that day I had that concert
I was afraid of people, so I hid in the bathroom and stared at myself

and in “So Far Away”:

I’m in so much pain and lonliness but people around me keeping telling me to regain my consciousness
I try to vent my anger but I only got myself so what’s the point of venting my anger
I’m scared to open my eyes everyday and start breathing

these lyrics from ‘At Dawn’ also illustrate this:

I pretend I’m not lonely, I pretend I’m not suffering
I pretend I’m okay for no reason, meaninglessly I pretend to be strong
don’t come over the wall I’ve put up in front of myself
don’t throw me off this island in this wide sea 

he also talks about his struggles during his trainee days and i dont think he’s ever talked in depth about this period of his life. this mixtape gives us some insight about him moving to seoul, getting a part time job to afford the cost of living in the city, going to school dead tired after work, and still training with big hit to live out his dreams

was I needy for success? No just needy for money
it’d been a long time since I forgot the words ‘in style’
I practiced at night and went to my part time job at dawn
then even if I dragged that tired body to school I just slept
I became 20 that way, the sight of the graduation room was suspicious

and the fact that he admits he puts up a front:

I hide the self that’s behind my defensive posture
I hide myself completely like I’ve become a criminal, always
I can’t even take one step outside the dorm that’s like a prison 

all of these are reasons im so moved. because it really highlights how idols only show one side of themselves to the camera, and fans can never really know them fully. we only know the version of bts’ min yoongi that he wants to show us through shows and broadcasts. 

behind every idol rapper who succeeds
there’s a weak self standing, it’s a little dangerous
I fall sometimes again into depression and compulsion
hell no, anyway I don’t even know if that’s the real me

but through his music? through his mixtape, he’s trying to show us another side of him, and i’m so thankful that he’s opened up to his worldwide audience. this takes courage. talking openly about your hardships and your weaknesses to people who look up to you, that takes some damn courage. so thank you, yoongi, for opening up to your fans.

You Can’t Please Everyone: How to Write about Sensitive Topics
by P.S. Hoffman

This post was written in tandem with my fellow blogger, Samah. Go read Samah’s blog for an illuminating glance into the diverse lives of Scarved Muslim Women.

I’m going to say a word, and you’re going to feel a quake of emotion; I don’t know if it you’ll have a positive reaction or what, but I want you to focus on what you feel.

Are you ready? OK. Here it goes: Feminism.

Feminism is a blazing hot topic, especially on the semi-anonymous internet battlefield. It’s infamous for starting absurd internet wars and it’s divisive enough that sometimesfeminists clash with other feminists.

The point is, touchy topics like feminism are so sensitive, they might as well come with a ‘WARNING: FLAMMABLE” sign. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about them.

Here are some tips for you, dear reader, on how to write about sensitive topics without poking the bee’s nest.

“Whoa, Dan has a little brother?! That’s so cool, I’m going to post private stuff from his facebook and put it on an instagram account! Why stop there? I should post things about his whole family!”

Can’t we just give Dan, Adrian and the rest of the Howell’s some privacy? APPARENTLY NOT!

Yes, it’s cool that Dan has a younger brother and yes, it’s cool that he kind of looks like Dan and things like that but we do nothave the right to post private information about any of Dan’s family, it’s rude and disrespectful!

Dan has clearly stated that he wants to keep that part of his life private because that’s his family, those are the people that he doesn’t want us, as fans, apart of because that’s not our place to be in! Can’t we just respect that his family is something he cherishes and wants to keep private? He’s very protective over his family because once in a younow Dan was asked:

“Can you discuss your brother?”

And he responded with

(link to younow, mentioned at 35:42)

It’s obvious that he’s protective over his family and doesn’t want us to stalk them! So…why do we? Why can’t we just respect Dan’s wishes and happily reblog stupid derp faces of him and Phil and not be drama llamas?

This has been a public service announcement from, yours truly,

Kathryn (just–another–stupid–blog)

Thank you.

Smudging and Appropriation

So I’ve been told that I can’t smudge because it’s cultural appropriation. So I stopped and thought about it, and here’s my response:

I’m pagan. While my parents are not, my great aunts, uncles, and a couple grandparents are. My great grandmother was full Cherokee and she never mentioned to any of the family that if they had white spouses they shouldn’t let younger generations practice. And my Native American heritage isn’t the only part of my family that is pagan and practices cleansing. What about my Irish family members (within 3 generations) who were pagan and who regularly practiced and worshiped?

Cultural appropriation isn’t right, and it needs to be fixed especially in America. But when it comes to religious practices, please be mindful about who you’re accusing of appropriation and disrespect.

Correct me of I’m wrong, please.

there’s some nasty ass rumors going on about Michael, which I wont say because the subject itself is a sensitive topic to me, but believe me when I tell you I will fight until my last breath for this boy, he’s not okay, just like some of us in the fam, he went to therapy for god sakes, and now this awful thing?!?!

this boy has been nothing but fucking incredible to us sure he’s not a saint but he is not a fucking demon he is not a monster, he’s the most sweetest person walking on this earth he is literal light he is the best thing I personally could ask for in my life

this boy loves us so fucking much and as the fam we are we need to fucking square up and show him we love him more than we could ever fathom explaining 

Michael is the literal epitome of bad things happening to good people

look at him he’s the most beautiful thing ever and the fact anyone would say something so disgusting about him makes me cry because he’s my happiness and when he’s not happy, or okay, neither am I

he’s an actual human being with feelings he’s not heartless guys, show him endless love, just like we would with any other one of the boys I made a post defending calum and I’ll do it again defending michael because these boys are harmless and too good for this cruel world human beans 

fucking tell me he doesn’t care about the fans, fucking tell me he doesn’t care or is a bad guy and I will shove the receipts up your ass it’ll come back out from your mouth 

for those who dont know michael recently said, “People shouldnt have to starve themselves to fit someone else’s idea of beautiful. Everyone’s fucking beautiful!” so how are you gonna tell me this boy is the bad guy and a monster when he’s teaching us to self love ourselves, when he sticks by our side through thick and thin 

like I said I will defend this boy with all my heart so dont you come to me since im such a fucking michael stan and make up bull shit about him and out him down for having mental problems

he is beautiful inside and out, if he’s hurting than I’m hurting, so if you fuck with him, you fuck with me and i’ll protect him

so yup michael’s defense squad 2k15, 2k16, 2k17, and many more years to come

end of motherfucking rant.

Louis has already laid a blanket out over the hood of the car and he pats the spot next to him.  Harry crawls up beside him, the still-running engine warm under the hood as he lies down next to Louis.  Louis twines their hands together and Harry smiles up at him, before redirecting his attention to the sky.  The stars are falling in bunches now, raining down like handfuls of fiery confetti.  Harry thinks it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever witnessed.
But then he glances over at Louis.  Louis isn’t watching the sky – he’s not even pretending to be.  He’s watching Harry.  His expression is soft and fond and the light of the stars is reflected back in his eyes, like tiny silver fish swimming in two dark pools of water.  Harry feels like he’s been punched in the sternum.  Louis’ beauty rears its head at the most unexpected times and it’s absolutely devastating.  Harry gives him a timid smile and Louis beams back at him.
He shivers, but it’s not the wind that’s made him do so.  Nonetheless, Louis raises an eyebrow. “Cold?”
“A little,” Harry lies.

No one really notices Marcel Styles. In fact, Marcel’s so invisible that if his teachers don’t call on him in lessons - and they rarely do - Marcel can go whole days without speaking to anyone other than his mum, his sister, Gemma, his cat, Dusty and the school librarian, Alma. And if he just so happens to have a tiny, miniscule crush on the footie captain, Louis Tomlinson, well, that’s no one’s business but his own. Until Louis notices him back…

right so story time: today in german some people brought up ferguson when the teacher left the room to print out some papers. and this annoying bowl of cottage cheese goes on to say “ferguson is a sensitive topic to me because a man lost his job”

like ????? a maN LOST HIS LIFE ???

???????????????////?

Our roles in the society are pretty much decided from the moment we’re born, we are wrapped in pink or blue blankets according to what our gender is, it just starts there and never stops. The most important thing to remember is that we have to talk about the sensitive topics, because if we DON’T, they’ll turn into a taboo topic and we have quite enough of them apparently.

do you know which scene i love unconditionally?? when the foxes all go to brunch and the waitress asks about neil’s bandages and matt said “skateboarding”, dan said he “fell into a tank of piranhas”, and allison said it was a “bad breakup” and they just continued to eat brunch and talk about their spring break plans and instead of neil lying to the waitress about a sensitive topic, they did it for him :’-))
