some people are gay. get over it!

how to be a donna tartt character

wear old-fashioned clothes in all black or all white, odd glasses are a bonus

have weird nicknames with your friends and only refer to each other by them

intellectualism™ is important. make sure everyone knows that you love homer more than them

moral ambiguity is slightly more important. wanna scam people with fake antiques? wanna murder a friend? wanna steal your stepmom’s dog and drugs and run away across america? wanna semi-accidentally steal a painting and worry about it for years? wanna get into an ecstatic state and murder some random farmer? no time like the present

speak a few languages, preferably dead ones or russian

embrace your angst. amplify your angst. worry

consume copious amounts of substances. smoke, develop a drug problem, get sick drinking as often as possible

forget having actual romantic relationships with people, instead opt for romanticizing someone and obsessing over them and then confessing your love unsuccessfully or being totally gay for your best friend and then denying it later when they try to bring it up

suddenly i remembered something from season 1 about keith? it’s just a little thing. regarding his hostility towards pidge

“You can’t leave!”
“You can’t tell me what to do.”

in this episode when the castle is ambushed and pidge intends to leave, the only person to really get on her ass is keith. i was reading @gay-space-lions post talking about how keith’s father more than likely abandoned him and that both of his parents are alive and it helped explain this scene better than “dead parents, sad orphan boy.”

there’s this bit where he practically snaps when hunk expresses wanting to leave at some point, but it doesn’t really help the situation.

“You’re not the only one with a family...everyone in the universe has family! You’re putting the lives over two people over everyone else in the entire galaxy!”

keith downright chews her out rather cruelly for an older boy to do to a little kid, but i think this is probably something similar to what he’d like to say to his own family. he’s calling her selfish and dismissing her feelings because, if his parents did really abandon him, having pidge leave him all of the sudden probably hurts a lot. keith doesnt want to go home, he wants people to just stay with him.

Dadman shiro puts a stop to it by reminding keith that he cant force someone to stay if they don’t want to, which shuts him up p damn fast but look at his face? this was a big blow to him, just when he started to open up, but now he sees and feels that people will just all leave him eventually.

@ dreamworks give this kid a fucking break

it’s sad gay idols can’t come out and be themselves, can’t get love for who they are and not for who their industries want them to be, but what is sadder is that a lot of fans don’t even think there can be actual gay idols and if they think about it, the very thought disgusts them. it’s sad that people in this century still don’t catch the true meaning of love: you want to own your idols, you don’t love them cause love also means acceptance, understanding, empathy and let live. you buy their albums, not their existence and heart.

How Supergirl Season 2 Was Made

Deep within the bowels of the CW, four people in suits stand around a cauldron labeled ‘Supergirl Season 2’.

Suit #1: Alright everyone, now this was the easiest brew yet, CBS gave us most of their ingredients, we just need to wrap this up with some personal touches. We’ve already added our own experience with making superhero shows from the Arrowverse, but I was thinking we could do something extra…let’s make Alex Danvers gay. It’s not like she had a love interest for people to get mad at us about, and after her wardrobe in Taxi Brooklyn half the internet is convinced Chyler is gay anyway. Now then…anyone know where we can find some Gay?

Suits #2-4 perk up and all run in opposite directions. Eventually Suit #2 comes back carrying a five gallon bucket full or rainbow liquid.

Suit #2: Hey, a friend gave me this. It’s the left over gay from Rookie Blue. There’s not much since the finale ended with the one lesbian main character having sex with another girl and being about to adopt a child, and none of the lesbians in the show got killed or went evil, but it should work.

Pours the rainbow liquid into the red and blue liquid of the show. Suit #1 looks in at the new mixture, Alex has a light rainbow aura now, but it could be waved off by the straights if they really wanted to. Suit #1 pats Suit #2 on the shoulder.

Suit #1: That’s just the right amount of gay! Good job!

Suit #2 walks off pleased. Moments later a forklift pulls up carrying a 50 gallon drum with a nozzle at the bottom, which Suit #3 aligns with the cauldron.

Suit #1: Uh…what is that?

Suit #3: Oh, this is all the leftover gay from The 100! Given the backlash we got from killing Lexa I thought it only right to apply it to our new show as a sort of apology.

Suit #1: Well that’s a very nice thought but we already added 5 gallons of gay to the season, I think that’s enough…

Suit #3 ignores Suit #1 and opens the nozzle, pouring more rainbow colored liquid directly into the cauldron.

Suit #1: Oh…okay…well alright

Suit #1 looks into the mixture as Suit #3 drives away. Alex is unmistakably, Kristen Stewart, Tegan and Sara levels of gay now, and a new character, Maggie Sawyer, appears to have materialized. Moreover the presence of Katie McGrath is drastically multiplying it, and now there’s a light rainbow coating to Kara, Winn, and Mon-El too.

Suit #1: Oh well, I guess this will just get us a cult following now. Shipping wars are always good. Plus Kara’s got a canon relationship with a guy, and Winn was with this universe’s terrible version of Siobhan Smythe, so it should balance out. We’ll just have to add a few more James/Kara dates. Wait…what’s that sound?

The massive door used for truck deliveries opens and a cement mixer backs up towards the cauldron, it’s spout lowering onto said cauldron.

Suit #1: …What the hell?

Suit #4 hops out beaming.

Suit #4: Well after TNT ended Rizzoli & Isles…

Suit #1: Are you insane? You can’t dump all the leftover gay from Rizzoli & Isles in here! We’re trying to make a superhero show, not the L Word set in the DC universe!

Suit #4: Oh no, this isn’t all of it, this isn’t even half.  Disney bought A LOT of it to spread out among their own stuff, Star Wars, and Marvel, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network both bought a bit, NBC and CBS bought some,and most of what we got the movie people took for the Amazon Island in Wonder Woman and the standalone Harley Quinn movie they’re working on. No, this is just what was left over.

Suit #1 stares in shock as Suit #4 hits a button and a river of rainbow liquid flows out into the cauldron. When it’s all done J'onn is the only one of the main cast NOT coated in gay, the James/Kara relationship has ended by the end of the first episode, and Katie McGrath doesn’t seem to have realized that she wasn’t supposed to have brought the leftover gay from Dracula with her and directed it all solely as Kara. Even Winn and Mon-El are super gay now! And while the prevailing colors of the season are still blue and red, there’s an undeniable rainbow under coat.

Suit #1: … we’re going to get letters about this.

Haters gonna hate

This is a Rant…a big rant…be prepared.

Do you see this picture?

This beautiful picture?

Some dumb ass bitch, who I will refer to as DAB, commented on this picture on my Pinterest board. 

In her comment DAB said:

“I hate that you did this. I don’t make your gay characters straight, why do you have to go making my straight characters gay?”

To which another person replied:

“Gay people ruin everything. LOL”

and another:

“ Amazing detail. Just that Spock is supposed to be with Nayota. NOT KIRK.”

Jensen does not deserve all of the stupid hate just because he gave his opinion.

Jensen does not deserve all of the stupid hate just because he doesn’t like what you ship.

Jensen does not deserve to be called “homophobic” for something as stupid that honestly does not define whether you support gay people or not.

Get over it already and stop hating him for being honest to himself. And instead support him and understand for a goddamn time that he doesn’t like to be talked about some topics. He said it himself, respect him

Pansexual Problems
  • Person: umm...what's your sexual orientation?
  • Pan: I'm Pansexual
  • Person: What?
  • Pan: Okay so you know how people will eat certain types of ice cream but not others?
  • Person: Yeah.
  • Pan: Pansexuality is like going into an ice cream shop and saying, "Yes, all of these will do even though i may prefer some flavors over others at times."
  • Person: So you like girls/boys?
  • Pan: Yes.
  • Person: So you're bisexual?
  • Pan: No.
  • Person: Then you're gay/lesbian?
  • Pan: No.
  • Person: Then what ARE you?!!
  • Pan: I'm PANsexual.
  • Person: I don't get it.
  • Pan: There are more than two genders. Some people don't abide by gender "laws" at all. There are transgender people, there are also people who are gender-fluid, then you have your "traditional" gender identities.
  • Person: You're just making stuff up. Why don't you just say you're gay?
  • Pan: *stares at the camera*

Lmao all this Gency/Pharmercy “discourse” is honestly pathetic.

  • First of all, it’s literally nothing but some dialogue. 
  • Threatening to quit the fandom over a ship you don’t like getting teased? how old are you?
  • Same people saying they’re gonna quit are the same people who mocked all the idiotic straight people crying about Tracer being gay. Do you really want that to be your legacy? behaving in the same childish manner as them?
  • 90% of said people saying they’re leaving if Gency becomes canon are the same people who ship toxic shit like WidowTracer
  • Interracial relationships are just as important and deserve representation too!.
  • Literally all I’ve seen are people complaining that it’s a ~boring het romance~ but ignoring the fact that we like never see interracial relationships ever done well?
  • Why is this boiling down to a “my ship is better than your ship” pissing contest, we’re better than that
  • Genji’s butt belongs to me anyway

tl;dr: shut the fuck up and stop crying the second blizzard doesn’t do everything to cater around you.

anonymous asked:

There has been a lot of hoola over facial animations in ME: Andromeda, even media outlets like IGN are getting in on the action. Yet, there has never been an issue with games like Fallout and Skyrim. I was hoping you could provide some insight into why Bioware gets castigated for things other developers get away with? Do people hate gay characters that much?

I think the anti-LGBT scapegoating is what you get when you have a lot of jerks who are frustrated at a legitimate issue take it out on something or someone they dislike, even if that thing is only tangentially related. Political views have practically nothing to do with the implementation of animation systems or content, but humans have a a nasty habit of using the flimsiest of justifications to act like jerks towards people they dislike.

Regarding the facial animation thing, the main reason that Bioware takes flak for it over Fallout and Skyrim is that conversations and cinematics aren’t as large a focus in Skyrim or Fallout. It’s an uncanny valley effect - because the conversations in the Bethesda games tend to be so robotic, we know what to expect and forgive them for not having high fidelity animations. Most of the fun of Skyrim and Fallout stems from the emergence of the player’s story, doing all sorts of crazy things out in the wilderness. Seeing the characters speak and act like marionettes doesn’t really bother us because we don’t really see them a potentially human so much as game entities with personality quirks. 

Mass Effect and Dragon Age spend a large amount of screen time showing people talking to each other, and humans are extremely good at noticing weird stuff like that. Furthermore, Bioware’s cinematic designers also do a lot of camera manipulation and add a lot of emphasis on what happens during these cinematics. Because we’ve all been trained since childhood to understand the language of cinema and pick up on facial cues when other humans speak, we’re primed to look for that stuff when we see the content presented in a similar way. And when it’s almost all there the subconscious priming backfires and it’s painful for us to watch. It just feels wrong and off, and that’s why we have such a bad reaction to it. Basically, Bioware sets us up to expect it and Bethesda doesn’t. When our brains want to see something and don’t get it, we feel the loss more than if we didn’t have any expectations at all. 


Got a burning question you want answered?

Some thoughts after episode 7

-a legitimate, realistic, healthy gay romantic relationship is on screen in a show that is not yaoi/BL/shounen ai

-while the incoming US government threatens to institute explicitly anti-LGBT legislation I feel like this ray of hope will get me through however long the fuckwad is in office

-for once queer people didn’t get fucked over and I am so fucking ecstatic

-this show is so personal to me in a way that really doesn’t compare to other shows, and I’m so glad that the creators chose to portray a queer romance positively yet nuanced and believable

-I recommended this show to my mom gushing about how much this show means to me and she’s going to watch and I’m so thankful that my mother is so accepting supportive of me and my gay ass

-honestly what a wonderful time to be alive

I wish people could understand why the ‘LGBT’ fans of Mass Effect are so upset over no homosexual characters being confirmed. It isn’t that we want everything to be gay. It’s that, how fucked up was it that Male Shepard didn’t get to have the availability to be gay until the very last game? Kaidan became available and then they added Steve Cortez.

Aside from the fact that some people didn’t really care for either. Plain and simple, it’s fucked that we had to wait. Even Femshep. She only got Traynor if you really want to get technical about Asari being monogender.

And people shouldn’t be getting upset if someone wants a certain character to bisexual. Plain and simple, we just want an awesome ‘quality’ romance just like all the straight romances. I don’t think that’s unfair to ask for. We all just want the same Andromeda experience at the end of day whether you’re straight or queer.

Anyone who is mourning Sherlock and TJLC right now, I suggest watching Hannibal and Torchwood for a queer pick me up. Hannibal has a fantastic slow burn gay romance over three seasons. Unfortunately, it was cancelled in its prime, but the creator, cast, and fans are working hard to bring it back! Torchwood is a queer wonder! Every main character is lgbt. Every. Single. One. It does fall victim to the “kill your gays” trope, but it also features an actual “unkillable gay”, so that’s awesome. Hannibal is on Amazon Prime, and Torchwood is on Netflix. Now go get yourself some love from people who appreciate, love, and listen to their LGBT audience.

Hi, Taylor my name is Will and I am 16 from Sydney, Australia. I’ve been through some rough times over the past 2 years, from agruments to break-ups and disgusting people calling me idoitic names for loving you including people constantly pushing me down and calling me “gay” for loving you and your music just because I am a guy Swiftie. I swear I would not be here today if it wasn’t for you and your amazing music.
Just thinking about you or looking at the picture of you on my lockscreen instantly makes me feel better, you’ve helped me climb above and beyond everything. Even though sometimes I get kicked hard onto the ground I still rise and succed just like you have. I love you so so much and i am so grateful for you.
These are some pictures of me and my friend Ella at the 1989 tour Sydney. I strained my voice from screaming and singing everysingle word to your truely amazing voice and also I cried during one of the most emotional Clean Speeches I have ever witnessed. Thank you for helping me because if it wasnt for you I would not be here today writing this or walking on this planet.

Thank you thank you thank you!

So Taylor thank you so very much for being there when no-one else has, you’ve done so much for me without even knowing it. Thank you for writing such incredible lyrics that connect so deeply with not just myself but so many people around the world. I wish more than anything else that my ultimate dream to be able to tell you all of my story in person to you in person will come true, but until then this will have to do.
I love you so much with all my heart.

Love Will @fightdragonsfortay ❤😚💕

Thoughts on Shipping

The funny thing about people dissing gay ships is that they’d absolutely love most of them if they were straight.

Take Destiel, for example. Can you just imagine if Castiel was originally introduced as a female character? How everyone would be all over it saying all the stuff we say now like how Cas gave up everything for Dean and how Dean went near crazy when he lost Cas?

Or Johnlock. How everybody would totally ship it because John is the only person to ever really elicit emotion from Sherlock, as long as Johns actually replaced by a female of course. Irene, Molly, hell I bet some people would rather stick Sherlock with Mrs. Hudson rather than consider that he could be gay.

I’m just mad that we all get called rabid shippers who try and force everything to be gay when the real problem is people trying to force everything to be straight.

Ace and aro people are valid

With the sudden resurgence of ace and aro related discourse (i.e. People being absolute jackasses about others) I feel the need to clarify a few things, at least from my perspective.

Asexual people are valid, and are people who should be a part of the queer community. Full stop.

Aromantic people are valid, and people who should be a part of the queer community. Full stop.

I have no idea why I see so many people, people who you would think would know better than to be going around saying things like “ace people are just faking it for attention” or “being ace is homophobic!” And other variations of exclusion.

Do people not remember some of the shit that the queer community has been though in the past? I’ve seen the same questions repeated to both people who are ace and people who are gay or lesbian so many times.

“What if you want children?”
“You’ll get over it”
“You just haven’t met the right person yet”
“How are you not attracted to (x)?”

There are more. But the end result.
Why would you exclude people who have so many similar experiences?
What do you even gain from it?

Are you so desperate to cement your recent inclusion into mainstream support that you’ve lost where you came from?

I don’t know.

But I do know this.

Ace people are valid.

Aro people are valid.

And you are not going to convince me otherwise.

headcannons for soda coming out as gay to steve? (stevepop is accepted as well if you'd like) THANKS ALSO I LOVE UR BLOG OKAY BYE

Soda had decided today was the day. He had decided that day he would come out to his best friend, and crush, Steve Randle. He had been nervous for months. He didn’t know Steve’s stance on LGBT people, and he had been to scared he’d be questioned if he asked. He knew Steve’s dad wasn’t very accepting of people like Soda, people who were gay, so he wasn’t getting his hopes up. Best case scenario, he ends up dating the guy he’s been crushing on for months. Worst case scenario, he loses his best friend he’s had since pre-school.

He had invited Steve over, pretending like he just wanted to hang out like normal, but it would be far from normal. Soda got ready for his arrival by putting on his favorite lucky flannel and a nice white tank underneath it, along with some nice blank pants. His hair was unusually neat and combed, pulled out of his face by some grease. He heard Steven pull up and took a deep breath, flashing a quick but needed smile to himself in the mirror before leaving the bathroom. 

Steve walked in without being let in, like how the gang normally preformed. He saw Soda all dolled up and said, “Woah, Cola, whatcha all dressed for?” he asked. “A-are we headin’ out? ‘Cos I didn’t bring nice clothes or nothin’, ya didn’t say we were goin’ out!”

Soda took another deep breath, trying to steady his jumping nerves. “N-no, Steve, we aren’t going out. I… I need to tell you something. And I don’t want it ta ruin things between us if you don’t like what I gotta say… but I feel it needs to be said. It real important.” he said, his voice shaky and all over the place.

Steve got closer, studying the other boy’s face. “What’s up Soda?” he asked, concern filling his voice. His mind had been jumping from one possibility to another, the worst being that he didn’t want to be his friend anymore.

Sodapop closed his eyes and took one more deep breath before revealing his big secret. “I-I’m gay.”

“W…What do you mean?”

“I mean I like boys, Steve. I like boys.  Just boys.”

Steve let it process in his mind a bit. “Is that all you wanted to say?”

Soda bit his lip. “A-and I uh… I like you…”

Steve chuckled, but pressed on. “How long have you been… well, how long have you known you liked boys?”

Soda shrugged. “’Bout a year I guess. But I didn’t start crushin’ on ya till few months ago, if that’s anything…”

“Why didn’t you tell me?!” Steve asked. He wasn’t mad, he was just curious.

Tears started to fill Soda’s eyes. “I w-was nervous… I know your dad ain’t t-to happy with gay people… and I didn’t know h-how you felt towards people like… like me…”

Steve smiled, and put an arm around Soda’s waist, pulling him closer as Soda gasped. “Look, Cola, I ain’t my dad. I ain’t got no problem with you liking boys, I really don’t. As for you liking me…” He trailed off and was silent for a bit, and Soda looked down, disappointed. 

“I understand, Steve. you don’t like bo-” he was cut off by a deep kiss from Steve. He melted into the kiss, his eyes fluttering closed. 

Steve reluctantly pulled away a few seconds later. “I don’t like boys. I love them. But guess what?”

“What?”

“I love you more than any boy I’ve never known.”
