some of these look ok and others

anonymous asked:

i'm ftm and i'm pretty largely attracted to other men... i've never seen or heard of another transgender man like me is it ok? i always have this nagging in the back of my head that gives me doubts about being trans because it would just be easier to be a straight woman? but i really don't like the idea of calling myself straight? or a woman? idk is it n*rmal to feel invalidated by not seeing other gay transmen?

Charlie says:

of course it is!! There are plenty of trans mlm, in fact we have some as mods on this blog.  If there wasn’t the whole catastrophe with Restricted Mode, I would tell you to look on YouTube.

"Scully: I Don't Think You Understand. He Would Be Dead Without Me This Man Would Die" There is a great scene from the second film when Skinner says "He wouldn't anything stupid" and Scully looks at him as if she is saying "Are you OK? Have you forgotten this, that and the other?" I think Scully is capable of being both the protector and the lover very well because with two separate people Mulder is doomed! And that poor auditor was thinking "Move on and I will pretend I didn't hear that.."

IWTB Scully put up with so much tbh…

Mulder is a smart man but god does he do some stupid shit lmao.  You’d think Skinner of all people would know that.

I’M HERE JUST LAUGHING SO HARD BECAUSE OF ALL THE REACTIONS OF THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM.

Look at that man with the blue suit, and the girl beside him.

“Well seems someone drank more than they shoud….”

Then we have who I’m guessing is Sara. She looks ready to record the moment.

“Oh it’s Yuuri!”

Then we have Mila.

And the poor girl just can’t hold it anymore…

And now even Victor has to take some photos, he doesn’t even care he is talking with other people at the moment.

“Ok just wai-… I only need one photo of this… Ok done!”

Also JJ…

“Don’t worry, we are cooler than that.”

AND YURI WHAT ARE YOU EVEN… OMG

They are feeling it….

THE SAME MAN FROM THE FIRST PHOTO.

“Oh no… now there’s another one.”

VICTOR JUST JOINED THE PARTY

AND YURI WHAT ARE YOU EVEN…

MORE PHOTOS

“SO SCANDALOUS.”

“OK now… who brought the pole?”

Minimal context: our party is stopped by an underground river in the dungeon, no bridge. Most characters could pass, but we’re worrying for the shortest, the Halfling Barbarian (who, not much before, almost died falling down a bottomless hole).

Bard: You’re the smallest, we could just throw you to the other side!

Barbarian: And you’re the scrawniest good-for-nothing I ever saw, I say we throw you!

Bard: Oh no way, I just gotten bit by a giant spider cut me some slack.

(by then, everyone in the party pretty much agreed that the Barbarian will be thrown)

Rogue (OOC): I want to tie a rope around him. *rolls very good*

DM: Ok, there’s a rope securely tied around [Barbarian] but he hasn’t noticed yet.

(everyone looks at the new player, a Dwarven Fighter who got 19 strength)

Bard: Hey, y'know… throw him across please?

Fighter: … (still not trusting the party due to the aforementioned spider shenanigans)

Fighter: I don’t usually throw strangers… but okay… *rolls very good*

DM: [Barbarian] gracefully flies across the river and slides on the wet floor, falling into the well in the middle of the room. You see two orcs and five kobold before you fall.

(the party, unknowing what happened stops the rope so now the Barbarian’s hanging in the well and two very confused orc looking down at him)

Barbarian (OOC): hey, I speak Orc! I should say something…

Barbarian: Hello there gentleman, it’s a fine day, is it not?

Getting by Without Friends

2. Learn to enjoy your own company. See it as a time to reflect on your life, and really think through what you want for yourself.

3. Find different things you can do, and enjoy, by yourself. Also, developing new interests will stop you feeling bored.

4. Spend time looking after a pet or animal. Pets are consistent, loyal and reliable. They’ll never hurt your feelings, and they’re good company.

5. Talk to other people that you meet casually (at the checkout, in a queue, or when you’re ordering some food). You’re likely to find you get a warm response – and that will remind you that you’re actually OK!

6. Don’t let this bad experience undermine your confidence. Keep reaching out to others, and one day things will change - and you’ll find other people who like to be with you.

I’m too shook to come up with a title

GUYS. GUYS. It’s happening. It happened! HOW ARE Y’ALL FEELING? I KNOW I’VE NEVER FELT MORE ALIVE. It’s like I’ve just reached some kind of fujo milestone…I will never be the same. 

Since I’ve pulled my face out of my keyboard I thought I’d meta a little about what’s going and just flail over some of my favorite things in this. OK? Okaaaay. *fingerguns*

First of all, Doumeki is continuously more gentle than Yashiro can handle and that’s cracking Yashiro into little pieces. Case and point:

Every chapter has a plethora of New Yashiro Faces and once again, Yoneda Kou delivers. Yashiro just looks so damn lost and vulnerable and scared, but there’s Doumeki, reaching out to touch him, to reassure and cup his cheek.

Also, I just lovelovelove that they face each other during sex:

Yashiro looks almost happy here, look how he hangs on to Doumeki. And Doumeki’s face against Yashiro’s neck I’m gonna sue these panels for my death.

Then Doumeki takes his pants off and they change postion.

Doumeki’s back is divine. And remember that while Yashiro has passed out and slept a few times, no one in the fandom has seen Doumeki sleep in the last 50 chapters. So we get Cute Sleeping Doumeki Face this time around.

While Doumeki is passed out, the little cracks in Yashiro finally blow wide open and he goes over his past. This one panel was masterful:

His uncle is a black shadow, as he should be, and Yashiro is so young and pure. The contrast of light/dark just stabs you right through, along with Yashiro crying.

When was the last time Yashiro cried? At the end of Tadoyoedo, which relates nicely to the cover page for chapter 23.  

And why is Yashiro crying? Because he’s starting to feel. He has shut down all his emotions, all his trauma, so that he can function over the years and the love that Doumeki has stirred in him is bringing that to life again. It never goes away, it just waits until you deal with it. Plus, you can’t just choose which feelings to feel, if you want to feel one then you get to feel them all. Also, Yashiro is starting to realize just how fucked up everything was that happened to him. He jokes about it, yes, but to really process it is hard, and he never has until now.

Honestly I’m so thankful Yashiro has Doumeki to love him, he needs someone to treasure him and worship him and treat him like he should’ve been treated from the start. And Doumeki loves him regardless of everything he’s seen, regardless of what Yashiro’s done to turn him away, so he’s there for the long run and that kind of stablilty and safety is exactly what Yashiro needs to begin healing.

Finally, the panel that really killed me was when Doumeki leaned down to kiss Yashiro. It’s so tender I will never forgive Yoneda Kou for ruining my life. We should all form a support group for the feels we have after this.

ok but au where shiro and allura are both students at the garrison
  • allura is an exchange student who’s been accepted at the garrison, and immediately singles shiro out as the top of their class
  • shiro being like “who is this amazing beautiful girl - wAIT DID SHE JUST BEAT MY PILOTING SCORE”
  • just imagine them being highkey rivals trying to act lowkey
  • “you’re staring again shiro-” “i am not!” matt rolls his eyes
  • allura having a totally amazing squad tho, and her bestie is some guy name markus
  • (matt and markus have crushes on each other & share commiserating looks over their ridiculous friends)
  • shiro is officially Starstruck when he sees her benchpressing in the training room
  • a group project where they’re the only two who actually do shit brings them together as friends
  • long nights with lots of coffee cups and sharing study notes
  • allura falls for him slowly over little gestures (him memorizing her coffee order)
  • one day she doodles his name in the margins of her tablet notes and then remembers they always compare notes, freaks out and erases it
  • when shiro gets sick and has to miss class allura is the only one he trusts to take his notes (they just think on the same level), and vice versa
  • still having a healthy competition with lots of friendly flirting teasing
  • always giving each other compliments
  • they graduate top of their classes, tied neck and neck
  • they kiss for the first time when shiro is going to leave to go to Kerberos and they’re all stumbling over each other and he’s super flustered when trying to confess when allura just kisses him
  • “come back to me in one piece, takashi”
  • he doesn’t

#remember at some point Lex was genuinely Clark’s best friend #he was someone who Clark went to for advice #he was someone who Clark constantly defended despite his last name “Luthor” #they both saved each other multiple times #and fuck i’m seeing some parallels in Supergirl #they both start of as friends #Lena and Lex at some point just wanted their parents to love and accept them #they both betrayed their parents in the end #point is i think we’re all hoping Lena doesnt turn bad #and we’re probably thinking “eh, she betrayed CADMUS” #she’s good #but look at lex #he still ended up as superman’s arch nemesis #AND I SWEAR TO RAO IF THEY TURN LENA BAD #i’ll cry

this isn’t even necessarily about shipping ok?

Mojave Blunderbuss

This started out life as a Rossi break action 12 gauge shotgun that I bought from a pawn shop for around $25-30, can’t remember what it was exactly because I bought a few others at the same time and it was listed as broken. The stock was cracked, the barrel had a dent in the end and the gun itself was a little rusty so I decided to work on it and create a weapon that looked like it belonged in fallout. 

First step was breaking it down in to it’s parts. Some of them I had to toss because they were rusted and broken. Firing pin being one of them and the spring around it also since this is a rebounding hammer. Internals looked mostly ok except for a spring so I cleaned it all up and got to work. 

I replaced the firing pin with a nail I dremeled down to shape then heat treated and tempered to get it to be strong. I put a click pen spring around it as a return spring to keep it off the primer and bolted it in place. Then I took the spring for a air soft weapon and cut it down to size then put it inside for the internal latch spring and it works great. 

The butt plate had a crack in it too so I took it off and made a new one from an aluminium cake pan. This is before I recessed the screws. Don’t worry, I took the screws out, dremeled the aluminium and now they sit flush with the rear of the shotgun. 

On one side I carved Padyenie in… which is bad Russian grammar. I meant to say down fall but it literally means the act of falling. Oops. Oh well. The tape did not last long on the grip. 

The leather pouch was one I had sitting around. For the key on it I used a 7.62x54r keychain on a leather shoe lace and it holds seven rounds of 12 gauge. Ive had to rewire it twice because the wire or the pouch snapped previously but it still sits on there and works great. 

On the crack I used wood glue, drove nails through the stock and also used big heavy industrial staples to bind it. Now it’s not spreading anymore. I also cut out a bit of leather to use as a buffer in that area so it’s shielded from shock. 

The other modifications I made was a sling from an old karate belt (why don’t you use a seat belt? I hear that a lot. Because I did not have a god damned seatbelt at the time. I had a karate belt so I used what I had) and I put it on with a couple D rings, some ring mounts and screws. Because I wanted a sling on I had to use hose clamps around the front guard to keep it on because it’s only a tension one and not a screw one so it pops off if you don’t have the bands there. I also removed a good portion of the finish, hacked off the barrel to 18.5″ I made the shell holder there from an old purse and I’ve been hunting with it for about five years now. 

Here’s an old video of it being shot before I hacked down the barrel

It’s had a few names over the years but Mojave Blunderbuss stuck and it’s what the editor of TFB called it so I ran with that. 

ok so calm down and let me follow some other people in breaking it down

jb said : 남자 둘이서 오는 곳은 아니야 / (a cafe) isn’t a place where two guys meet alone

— take this as you will, but they both seemed awkward and cafes are typically where couples go in korea for dates or 소개팅 (blind dates). so take it as you will.

youngjae said : 너와 함께 오고 싶었어 ~ / I wanted to come here together with you ~

— this is a cheesy joke. youngjae was being really sincere-looking and probably has fun making jb uncomfortable for obvious reasons

jb then said : 아…..그런 맨트 하지마…때리고 같은데 하지마 / oh god…..dont make a comment like that…i think imma hit you dont say that

— while reacting to the cheesy joke, he said something that many people say in reply to cheesy jokes. “i’ll hit you” doesn’t mean “i’ll beat you up” in a serious sense. in translation it may seem like a bully-like thing to say in america, but in korea thats just how these jokes roll. i say it all the time with my korean friends and my cousins and even my mother.

OK SO
take it as you will but for everyone who has been going overboard with the negativity, just please understand you’re dealing with a culture that is very different from the western part of the world. jumping to conclusions is a dangerous thing, and while your opinions are valid — just be careful about what you say.

they’re two guys on television, on a show called bromance (aka an english/western term). LGBTQ+ issues are way more fucking serious than “oppa” saying “imma hit u dont say that” to a cheesily romantic comment

korea ( along with east asia, but i only have experience of being korean so i wont speak for china or japan ) has a strong sense of homophobia, there are movies about how being gay is a stigma of sorts, there are scary stories of kids getting bullied because other kids think they’re gay. there is only one small place ( i believe in incheon?? ) where there are open gay clubs. ONE. ONE AREA IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

listen, my parents do not support gay marriage. i argue with them so fucking much about it because they think america had “lost their prestige” whaTEVER THE FUCK THAT MEANS. but they think lower of america because of the gay marriage.

its fucked up. but that’s how korea works. you can say its wrong and you dont have to agree with it. because i say its wrong and i dont agree with it.m all the fucking time and i’m korean.

but don’t look at your oppa and think he’s the most perfect human being on earth. jb may or may not be homophobic. WHO KNOWS bc i dont fuckin know i dont know the guy. but whether you agree or not doesnt mean sending DEATH THREATS I MEAN HELLO THATS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS????? theyre two guys on tv and maybe jb doesnt want people to get the wrong idea because of the setting and the bromance and the situation

the social issue of gay people in korea is a SERIOUS matter and it cannot be determined by a single moment of dialogue in a show called bromance.

please don’t make this a homophobia argument if this is your example. trust me, people write books about this shit because it’s so serious. i dont even care about what jb said

i’m pissed about the reactions and the audacity people have to act like they know exactly what it’s like to be a queer person in a fucking conservative country that had to have help from america to become a democracy after the korean war aka only 60 years ago.

im sorry but if you don’t even know anything about the topic don’t go sending death threats or sending hate to people who are explaining the situation or to the guy who filmed this like three weeks ago
