sorry i just had to go on a rant there

Hearing People & Sign Language

I just saw a post on my dash about how hearing people shouldn’t learn sign language, that it’s “”“”“"ableist”“”“”“ or "culturally appropriative” and i’m sososoooo angry

As someone who was born deaf, I’d just like to say that without “"hearing people”“ knowing sign language, I would’ve had absolutely no way to communicate with my family other than through written language. I would’ve been completely unable to make friends in school because I wouldn’t have had a way to communicate with a single one of my peers. I would not have LEARNED anything in school if it weren’t for the interpreter who COULD HEAR.
I could go on, but I was fortunate enough to have access to specialists and surgeons who were able to operate on me and correct my hearing at a young age, so I can hear now.
But honestly, I want people to think about how isolating it can be when you’re in a room with people who all speak a language you know how to read and write, but you can’t communicate with any of them because you can’t understand spoken word, and they can’t sign.
If you think that learning sign language as someone who hears is somehow damaging, re-evaluate where you’re coming from. I would have loved nothing more than for all of the hearing people in my life who didn’t know sign language to know sign language so that I could have communicated with them, and not been limited to a select few people with whom I could sign.

Learn sign language, we’ll always be grateful.

@ everyone with intrusive thoughts

okay I’m not trying to invalidate anyone and their struggles but people really need to talk about intrusive thoughts that aren’t just stuff like “throw your cup across the room” or “eat this leaf” (even tho those must be stressful as well im sorry)

I’m talking about those gross, disgusting, violent thoughts that leave you awake at night afraid you’re going to slip up because it’s just a matter of time
Those thoughts that make you afraid to be alone in a room with anyone/anything you could possibly hurt
Those thoughts that leave you crying in the shower/puking over a toilet because they’re so disgusting and you must be a horrible person for even THINKING them
Those thoughts that make you want to kill yourself because it’s better than having to deal with them

People don’t talk about them enough and that’s why it’s so hard for people who suffer from them to realize that it’s not their fault it’s just the disorder
And to everyone who struggles with this: you’re so brave, I love you, and you’re going to get through this

anonymous asked:

Amber I need to suffer, could you tell me what are the songs in which H and L harmonise the most together? I just can think of better than words just because of a post that's going around atm, but I joined the fandom pretty late so I 've never followed their music before MITAM? Sorry for the rant and thank you

get ready for your DEATH

  • Use Somebody (not on the album but you’ve got to see this) 
  • Over Again (their verses are after another and it kills me)
  • Little Things (again, they follow each other up and then do the chorus together)
  • Rock Me (Louis: “I used to think that I was better alone” Harry: “Better alone” Louis: “why did I ever want to let you go?” Harry: “Let you go”)
  • Where Do Broken Hearts Go (at the end) 
  • No Control (all of it is beautiful)
  • Better Than Words, yes
  • Temporary Fix (Louis: “and if you’re feeling the weakness…” Harry: “WELL I TOLD YOU BABY THAT YOU COULD CALL ME” plus he’s screaming it up in the back of Louis’ entire verse hahah)
  • A.M. 
  • If I Could Fly (as if this song isn’t a cryfest as it is, have Harry: “I hope that you don’t run from me”, Louis: “for your eyes only….” )
  • Home (Louis: “I’ll make this feel like home”, Harry screeching “BAAAABY WE COULD BE ENOUGH” KILL ME WITH THIS SYMBOLISM)
  • 18 (Louis’ verse, then H&L sing it together, and then Harry launches into the rest of the chorus, and live it’s even worse)
  • Love You Goodbye (Louis’ high note and then Harry interrupting lowly…….. MURDER MY ASS)
  • One Thing (click the link, it’s the acoustic version and it’s beautiful, HL’s voices are really prominent together in the chorus)
  • WMYB (same thing, not really together but acoustic, they sit next to each other and please just watch it and cry)
  • Live While We’re Young (again, acoustic, i’m a fan, go to 0:33 IT KILLS ME)
  • You & I (Louis’ verse, Harry harmonises in the background)
  • Happily (in the chorus both H&L are really prominently there)
  • Last First Kiss (Harry at 2:28, Louis follows up the chorus)
  • She’s Not Afraid (they follow each other up)
  • Loved You First (same thing)
  • More Than This (… you know what I’m saying yet) 
  • Moments (really prominent together in the first chorus, follow each other up) 
  • Little Black Dress (again, Harry’s verse)
  • Strong (for the sake of it, Harry sings the chorus right after Louis’ verse)
  • Why Don’t We Go There

Some of them aren’t harmonies in the strict sense of the word but they’re still dream-teaming it up so it’s close enough, hahaha.  I probably missed a few, anyone’s welcome to add, but I had to stop before I collapsed. this should be enough to tide you over at least 

HAVE FUN CRYING!!

I was in the LGBT Resource Center on campus today because I’m crocheting a bunch of blankets for the room (there’s no heating allocated by the university for that part of the building). Dude with a Trump shirt on dropped by and said to the handful of people down there “Y’all know if Trump wins, your little group of perverted faggots is the first ones we’re coming from. You ain’t gonna last long on this campus once we have that national blessing.”

So basically, I attend the most conservative, least lgbtq-friendly public university in the United States and will no longer be able to visit one of the very few safe spaces on campus if Trump wins tomorrow, because I’m afraid I might be targeted. :/

For the love of god, your friends, and your fellow citizens, do whatever you possibly can to vote tomorrow.

I really hate it when people tells me it’s too much when they see Alex with Maggie, Clarke with Lexa, Cosima with Delphine, Franky with Bridget, Bea with Allie, Bernie with Serena, etc. I mean what the bloody hell!? I get to deal with you heterosexuals rubbing in my face going on with your life smooching and showing PDA out there. Know what? Fuck you. These couples on the shows tell you we are human being. We fall in love. We want to be with each other. We want to shout from the mountaintop that we are damn lucky to find our better half.

Listen. I see antis getting mad again and I feel like I need to speak up. Do you think we are doing this for fun?

I wish Louis and the other boys were having babies for real. Just not under these circumstances. If I had a reason to believe Louis is straight I wouldn’t be here talking about Larry. I’d be excited at the thought of Louis being a dad. I would be talking about what a lovely couple Louis and Danielle make. But that’s not the case. For anyone with a brain willing to look at facts it’s clear this stuff is shady.

Similar case for Liam. I would love to be excited at the thought of him being a dad. Yet I’m not.

Babygate 1 and 2 are literally what our worst nightmares are made off. We don’t make that shit up cause we like drama. There’s enough drama without 1D. The reason so many Larries have left is (mostly) not cause they stopped believing. It’s because it was too stressful for them. These events are causing people stress, they are making us worry.

I would love to be able to just believe everything that’s being fed to me and not be bothered. But I can’t. I have a functioning brain and I notice things are not what they look like. I can’t and won’t ignore that. Please stop being so mad at us. If you believe Freddie is Louis’ son, go ahead. If you believe Liam and Cheryl are happy, sure. I don’t mind you thinking that if you don’t harass me with it. Yet you are the ones yelling at us for having a different opinion. Can’t we just leave each other alone? Time will tell who is right and wrong.

@warmestbloggerever asked me to write something with Nico turning three years old again for some reason, and Will having to take care of him. Sorry, this is late, but I hope you like it!

You should all check out her blog, ‘cause she’s great!


Will Solace decided he had enough of the gods using demigods as toys to be played with whenever they were bored. He kind of wanted to go up to Olympus and yell at them, although he didn’t think he would be received well if he did.

Not that he had time to do that now, anyway, seen as he had to take care of a toddler. A toddler with dark hair and big dark eyes the color of melted chocolate. A toddler that was also his boyfriend, or what used to be his boyfriend, anyway. A grown boy (although he hadn’t exactly grown that much and still perfectly fit into Will’s arms. When the world felt a little too big, a little too much, Will’s arms were grounding and warm and safe) that talked easily and with full sentences. This kid was very, very small and did not speak full sentences. Well, fortunately Will had always been good with kids and with all the work in the infirmary he knew how to stay calm under extreme circumstances, which lead him to not freak out this morning.

This morning Will woke up to the laughter, groans and chatter of his siblings in the Apollo cabin. Every morning there felt like a new beginning and there was no room for morning grumpiness, which wasn’t exactly surprising when you put a group of children of the sun god together. The bright smiles and personalities chased whatever bad feelings you’re having away. And so, Will got ready that morning, happily joining when his siblings broke into an impromptu singalong/dance-party. He got dressed, brushed his teeth, quickly raked a hand through his messy hair, stepped into the bright sunlight.

He was still humming when he knocked on his boyfriend’s cabin door. When he got no response, he assumed Nico was still in the shower or something so he decided to head over to get breakfast and save a seat for Nico. But then he heard a noise coming from inside that sounded a lot like a sob.

‘Nico?’, Will called, but he got no response. Now, he was sure he hadn’t imagined the sound. It happened again. He carefully put a hand on the knob and pushed the door open. He peeked his head inside and at first he didn’t see anything different, he didn’t even see Nico in the dark. He squinted his eyes and after a couple second they adjusted to the darkness and he was able to make out a figure bundled in the blankets and sitting far in the corner of the bed that was pushed against a wall, knees pulled up and letting out heartbreaking sobs. Will had heard Nico cry, though, and although it was heartbreaking, it wasn’t the same as this.

Will stepped closer to the bed. The floor squeaked and the boy looked up with wide eyes. Eyes as big and beautiful and the exact same shade of magical brown as Nico’s. Will inhaled sharply when he noticed that, yes, his eyes were the same – he would recognize those eyes even in the dark – but this boy was decidedly not Nico. Or, at least, not the Nico Will knew and loved. This boy must be around three or four years old. How Nico had turned into a three-year old overnight, was something that Will did not comprehend and it made his head spin with such force he thought it might fall off. But, as mentioned earlier, all the years Will had spent working in the infirmary, had given him the ability to act quickly and be surprised later.

[mystic messenger spoilers] I just. have so many feelings for zen. the way he covers up for his insecurities by being too full of himself. his hard work, his ambition. the super relatable feeling of disappointment and self-deprecation when he couldn’t participate in a major production because of an injury he himself caused (that has happened to me, too).

it is a bit strange, considering he doesn’t really fit my type. but I just look forward to all his chats, I adore his calls, I smile when he uses “babe” so liberally. I was literally so excited when MC visited his apartment for the first time. he’s a good kid and I don’t know how or why this game is making me feel so much.

Ok so I haven’t read the newer jughead comics (I really want to!) but I have to address this. Jughead is ARO ace. As in he’s aromatic and asexual. Not only was he confirmed as asexual, he has always made his stance on romance very clear. He hates romance, he doesn’t want to be a part of it. He’s very clearly aromatic asexual. The reason I say this, is because I’ve been seeing a lot of anti ace posts lately… I’ve been hanging around in the jughead tag lately (cuz they sock me right in the feels) and I keep seeing posts that are like “ugh no offense, jughead is gay” “screw aromatic, het aces are gross” “why have a lame cishet jughead when you could have gay jughead”. STOP.

Asexuality can be complicated to explain. You can be ace and still be in a gay or get relationship. You can be ace and be bi or pan romantic. You can be aro ace. But no matter what, asexuals are asexuals. And if someone is asexual and in a het relationship or none at all, that doesn’t make them any less asexual/LGBT+. It’s the same thing you do to bisexuals,you don’t get to decide when that person is or is not their identity. No matter what relationship an asexual person is in- asexuality is valid regardless of the gender of their partner.

In this case, jughead jones is aro ace (as far as I can tell, the romantic part could be up for interpretation but I legitimately believe he’s aro as I can understand his language regarding romantic relationships) He’s not boring or gross for not being in a gay relationship. He’s not a liar and an oppressor for being aro ace- and neither are the real aro ace people who have to hear this in a ace character tag that they went on to see representation. Things like that are gross.

Stop going into ace character tags and saying ‘no this character is gay, and saying he’s anything but is gross and homophobic’ because you know that not true. Leave asexuals alone. Especially when a lot of asexuals didn’t even learn about themselves till going on this freaking website only to have the people that they thought would be accepting do this constantly.

A cold is going around, it seems.

(Sorry this is a bit long, just a bit of ranting about coworkers)

Nov. 17, 2016

A couple days ago before I got sick (14th), my coworker B let me take a hit off of his mod just to try the flavor he had in it.
Coincidentally, the next day I was sick with a nasty cold, I couldn’t even talk very well. I don’t know if I caught it from him (I found out today that his son has the flu, has had it for a week now) or not so who knows what got me sick.

Miss a day (15th), and was still sick af the next day but was told by my coworker/sister/roommate (yes it’s me again, hello) that everyone would be mad at me if I called out again. Mind you, the 15th was the first day I ever actually called out, Ever. I always pushed past my bad mental illness days and went in despite feeling like dying, and the one other time I tried calling out, I went in anyway because they didn’t have anyone else to cover me and I didn’t want them being short staffed.
I asked her to swap shifts with me bc I could cover her on Friday, which wouldve given me a good day for rest to help my cold, if she covered me that day. She said no, and Guilted me out of calling out. (She knows I have a hard time with people being mad at me. She knows about my mental illnesses. She p much used that against me so she wouldn’t have to cover me.)
I went in. Then I was scolded for coming in sick, and was sent home early. (My GM felt really bad for me, bless him)
I walked home, it was 40°f out, I was freezing and coughing and dizzy, and so ready for the sweet release of death.

Today, 17th, felt a bit better mostly because I wasn’t coughing as much and the cold moved into my sinuses, where at least I have medicine that helps with that.
My coworker from before, B, was sick but was there. He blamed me for getting him sick, but he also told me his son had the flu, and it could’ve been either of us who gave it to him. Newsflash: you live with your son. From what you tell me, your symptoms are more like his. It was probably him. Fuck you for making me feel bad.

He tells me that since I “got him sick”, I should cover him tomorrow so he can rest and get better.
I feel for you dude, I really fucking do. But I’m still sick too. Tomorrow is my only day I was actually scheduled off until next week, I still need to let myself rest and get over this cold whenever I can. I can’t do another 8 hour day, Today was bad enough trying to keep from seeming sick while the auditor is in town. You need to find someone else, I’m sorry.

He left early. No one talked to me about it again so I’m not even sure if I do have to go in tomorrow or not. I s2g if he told management I agreed, I’m going to be pissed.
I mean shit, I feel guilty as hell for not covering him, but honestly I don’t even care. I just need rest, I hate being sick.

I love Johnlock more than the next person, but if you’re seriously going to stop watching the show purely because John and Sherlock aren’t dating, I’m tempted to throw you down a well.

Just because the pair aren’t in a romantic relationship, doesn’t mean Johnlock isn’t canon. At the end of tfp both of them rebuild their lives TOGETHER, they raise Rosie TOGETHER, they faced Eurus TOGETHER.

The ending of season four showed and strengthened the bond that Sherlock and John have. We can see how far both of these men have come throughout the show: the game that Eurus put them through shows how Sherlock counts on John, and how he knows that he will fight beside him. Despite the pain of losing Mary and the intensity of his guilt and the pressure on him, he feels safe and at home with both Sherlock and Rosie by his side.

The rebuilding of 221b was more than just picking up the pieces- it reminded viewers that no matter what happens between the two, they will always have eachother. Sure I can get that the queerbaiting is frustrating, but the shows focus on the bond between Sherlock and John deserves all the praise in the world, because no matter what, home is where the other one is, and that my friends is canon.

I'm sorry but.....

All these fucking rants about how awful the season finale was, etc, and most if not all are coming from Kichie stans. I guess all these seasons of a romantic connection between Richie and Kate went nowhere. He barely had any scenes with her. They’re also more than bitter over us getting SethKate moments when there was no RichieKate to be seen. Just bitter as fuck. Like it’s nobodies fault but your own for reading into things and expecting more than what you got.

let me rant for a bit and give an advice

I used to have a friend who every single time I was sad he made me feel my feelings weren’t worth it or that I shouldn’t be sad because X person was probably going through something worst or that because I never had a though childhood (or a though life, let’s say) I wasn’t supposed or allowed to be that sad. Let me tell you something, if you have a friend or someone close to you that makes you feel that way, please go away from that relationship. 

I spent 3 fucking years believing that what I was feeling wasn’t correct and I kept putting my feelings in the very back of my mind. I spent 3 years believing that my sadness was a pain in the ass for everyone and even for me. I spent 3 years of my life thinking sharing my feelings was something bad, that was cheesy and that It was selfish towards the people who were struggling the most. This person made me believe that because I didn’t have a tough life my sadness wasn’t allowed to take place in my mind. This person made me believe that I was supposed to ignore that sadness and I was supposed to move on, that from day to night I was supposed to be happy again.

Let me tell you this, don’t fucking do anything from above. There are people who not necessarily went through a tough childhood or life and they still feel depressed or anxious or something. You don’t have to go through something in order to be sad, let me tell you, my life’s good compare to other ones but that doesn’t make my feelings less valid. If you are sad, EMBRACE your sadness, don’t ignore it, don’t put it in the very back of your mind. 

I know there are different people who embrace and see happiness and sadness differently but that doesn’t give you the right to tell someone how they should feel or act. What I want to say with this little bible I wrote is, don’t ignore your feelings, don’t feel forced to feel a certain way. Feeling sad? It’s alright. Feeling happy? It’s alright. Feeling *insert any type of feeling*? It’s alright. Don’t let anyone tell you which feelings are valid and which are not. 

Hey guys

I’m really sorry I haven’t been very active. I’ve been going through a lot recently. I’m sorry I haven’t made boards in a while, I’m sorry so many of you haven’t had your asks answered. I’m sorry if I’m letting you guys down. I just can’t do everything. I don’t have enough spoons. I love this blog so much, I hate to think that I’m not doing enough.
-Mod Hooper🐡

I try to keep my blog drama free as I’m sure you all know because I really don’t care for it in any way, but I came across this post on Instagram and I was too disgusted to not saying anything.

This is honestly one of the most fucked up things I have seen.

Now I’m not going to go on a big rant about defending Arzaylea and saying that you have to like her, because you don’t. 

But at least respect her - don’t go around saying you want to kill her because that is completely messed up and INHUMANE. And all because she is in a relationship with a celebrity.

Sure she’s supposedly done things that have pissed people off but saying you want to kill someone because of something so insignificant and petty is absolutely disgusting.

And at the end of the day it is in fact all because she is simply in association with a band member.

Grow up.

Dear Followers

Sorry for going silent and not answering asks and messages for the past couple days. I had a few rough patches as I started a new semester and just needed to sort out exactly what was going on with my thesis and related things before I felt like I could talk to anyone. I’ve gotten some sleep, had a good cry, met with my advisor, got into my for-fun class, and basically have a better grip on what’s happening. It’s all relative but you know

To everyone who sent me support following my tags rant on Monday, thank you so much <3 I’m not going to publish the asks for the same reason that I keep those rants confined to the tags - I prefer to keep those sorts of issues quiet and don’t want to invade people’s dashes with my personal problems - but I really, really appreciate it. You’re all lovely humans and I’m sending you all big virtual hugs.

Again, I’m really sorry to people who have been waiting on responses to asks and such - I see them, they’re sitting in my inbox, and I’m getting to them ASAP

To anyone still waiting for prompts, I promise they will get done and very soon!! The start of this semester was just way more chaotic than I was anticipating. Thank you so much for your patience and I’m really sorry it’s taken so long! As soon as I’m done with all of them I’m going to post a masterlist, so keep an eye out for that as well.

Alright, that’s all. Thank you all for being lovely - I’ll be more alive and responsive starting tomorrow

I actually had a dream Sunday night that the Supergirl writers were just queer airing about the centric and it wouldn’t really be about Alex and Maggie. We got four minutes. Maybe 6 or so if you count Alex and Maggie talking to Kara about each other. Not even a quarter of the ep. Not even an eighth, with the sanvers scenes themselves. But that wasn’t even it. Because how could they paint Maggie as in the wrong when she was trying to avoid reminders of being kicked out of her home as a child? Do the writers not understand how beyond terrible that is?? Can they imagine what it is to kick out the person you gave birth to and raised? More importantly, can they imagine what it is, how it feels, for the two people who you are supposed to be able to trust, to rely on, to have a home through, cast you aside?? Maggie doesn’t need to get over that or apologize for feeling upset about it! And I have to believe that Alex does not want her feeling uncomfortable over it. And I’m sure she recognizes that the dance is a do over for Maggie too. And then there were little things. Because, maybe this is just me overreacting, but I saw how Alex and Maggie got a brief kiss, and then that was immediately paralleled with Kara and mon-ew full on making out (like let’s not ignore the implications thx) and it just felt like a slap, like a “don’t worry, we’re not too gay”.

Look, I appreciate the representation we’re getting. And there were some incredibly beautiful moments in that ep. Maggie’s speech to Alex? It reminded me of the way my girlfriend and I talk to each other. And the way Alex insists on knowing what Maggie experiences/has experienced? So good, so important. And Maggie’s reaction was well played. And all of the cute little domestic stuff was awesome. Still, for a while the writers had been doing so well. And they haven’t quite gotten to this point yet, but they should be reminded that merely not killing their lesbian characters is not enough.

Can I just say

It really annoys me how in fics people either don’t mention nico hating physical contact or they play it off as not a big deal and have their other characters touch him which makes people who hate physical contact uncomfortable even when he asks them not to and then they don’t even mention how that makes Nico feel. I mean I don’t really like physical contact much but my best friend hates it and we both get uncomfortable when people touch us and it’s a bigger deal than people realise it isn’t something you “ just get over” it’s something you live with and try to get other people to respect. Which most don’t and you know what my best friend has been so uncomfortable at times with other people trying to touch her that I’ve had to pry them off her. So I’m sorry if anyone feels upset by this post but I’m upset that people don’t respect others boundaries and that goes for fictional characters too. Okay rant over you can go back to your lives now.

campfire

OK SO I KIND OF NEED TO EXPLAIN THIS.

First off, when I saw this request I new it was destiny because this doodle was drawn in science class today XD

Remember Casting Rain, that fanfic I did a mini rant about here? Well, this is something that happens in one of the chapters!! It was so adorable I just HAD to draw it~

Gaster is so #relatable like seriously he gets all the best one-liners and funniest jokes it’s amazing XD

Grillby is the same way tho, like he’s just so fed up with everything skeledad is doing and like “STOP I’M A MONSTER TOO NOT SOME DANGEROUS FIRE-TOY-THING FOR YOU TO PLAY WITH UGH” It’s great XD XD

READ IT PLEASE I NEED SOMEONE TO RANT WITH SORRY FOR BEING ANNOYING BUT SERIOUSLY IT’S SO GOOD JUST CLICK THESE WORDS

Anyways, there you go! A talking campfire XD

You ever wonder if maybe Qui-Gon DID know about how Obi-Wan and Satine felt about each other (you’d have to be blind not to notice if it was in any way as blatant as in TCW) but he never said anything because he got swept up in how he had felt about Tahl, and quietly decided to stand back because if Obi-Wan, his son in every aspect, was going to leave the Jedi again, at least it was for love. A love that he knew, he could see was real. Qui-Gon knew what real love was like. And if Obi-Wan didn’t leave the Order, well…he’d be there if he needed him.

I’m sorry I’m just ranting on Obitine today.
