its so unfortunate that the beautiful rural regions around where i live are largely populated by homophobes bc?? country living is so gay. living in a lovely old farmhouse with the love of ur life is gay. picking fruits and vegetables from ur garden to make a wholesome dinner for the love of ur life is gay. sitting on ur wrap-around porch with the love of ur life listening to old music and admiring the countryside is gay! old trucks!! flannels and big ol boots!!! having a gazillion pets!!!! all gay. i want to be a gay farmer with my gay wife and live in gay tranquility on our gay farm but thats not happening in rural southwestern pa!!
They are flooding my inbox. I think they are obsessed with me…its a bit creepy actually. If this was real life, I would get a restraining order against them. Apparently they said they aren’t going to leave me alone and that they are going to keep sending me hate… shows how much of a life they have. Funny since they said previously “I am done with you and your shit” … APPARENTLY YOU’RE NOT!!
OH PS!! I did get your asks last night and I replied with screencaps of our past conversations! Just an FYI to you!
Ok thats all! Staying strong here. Got my protection squad!! Not going to publish the hate unless I get really tempted to! Besides, I took the appropriate action ;) This constitutes as cyber bullying! Its disgusting and immature. But if there’s one thing this person wants, its attention! Anyhoo Lets get back to posts now!!
i really just want spiritually conscious ppl around me. People who understand life and are mindful, spiritually aware of themselves and others.
Like people do some fucked up shit just cause of whats in their head they cant separate their thoughts n memories n notions from reality. 90% of the world truly believes that their eyes have seen it all, and thats sad
why don't you turn off anon? so many jelous people these days. You only deserve love
aww thank you so much ♥ actually I know many people who are very shy to ask questions and also some people with social phobia. thats why I dont turn anon off, I get too many wcif or some other questions by anons so I dont want to make them feel uncomfortable while sending me a message.
And I am really old enough to care hate messages from anonymous people behind their computers, most of the time I dont even answer. But even when I take time to answer them, It doesnt really disturb me at all. They can change nothing in my life so why would I bother with their messages
richie shows up one day with bleached streaks/highlights in his hair (it surprisingly doesnt look bad) and everyone is like wtf dude just why..? but he just shrugs and doesnt say anything about it. for once in his life he isnt saying something… its almost a full week later when eddie remembers when all the losers were talking about crushes and eddie had just barely gotten away with saying he didnt like anyone but thought blondes were cute (a complete lie) and thats why hes now in the middle of history class blushing so much while staring at the back of richies blonde-tipped head with his heart pounding out of his chest
Context: Leyla, a Muslim British-Indian woman, is coming out to her mother, telling her “I’m gay.” Her mother reacts with horror and disgust, telling her “You’re up to your neck in sin” and going so far as to ask “Who did this to you?”
But it’s this scene that sums up the reality of LGBTQ+ desi youth. Our parents may very well love us and want the best for us, but the absolute bottom line is: our parents do not want us to be happy. They want us to be appropriate, to be respectful, to have children and well-earning careers, to fit into the mold of heteronormativity and gender roles, to be religious and pious. But no, they do not want us to be happy. Happiness doesn’t fit into it.
To them, happiness is indistinguishable as a separate characteristic because according to them, doing all of these things should already be making us happy.
The ideal created for desi children is that they shouldn’t strive to do what makes them happy, but what makes them “good.” Unfortunately, under this context, good is defined as anything that isn’t seen as immoral or out of the norm.
A woman who is not straight is rejecting her role as a wife, and to a lesser extent, her role as a mother. She is rejecting the notion of subservience to men, of obedience and inferiority. Under our current system that is hugely patriarchal, a woman who does not submit is a threat.
Now, I’m not saying desi parents are bad parents or hate their children because it’s pretty clear this happens in nearly every other culture in the world. But I am saying that desi parents do not make their children’s happiness a priority, they make their children’s success a priority: successful careers and marriages and children = successful lives. So if you ask a desi parent “do you want your kid to be happy?” they’ll immediately say “yes, of course.” But if you add on “do you want your kid to be gay if that makes them happy?” the answer will be a lot less positive.
This movie tackled Leyla’s sexuality and coming out to her parents absolutely head-on with no coyness about it. She goes straight up to her mother and admits that she’s a lesbian. But her mother’s reaction is really the thing that most “coming out” stories try to gloss over, or sugarcoat, or just in general avoid. Her mother admits with frank and brutal honesty the truth that all LGBTQ+ desi kids know: our parents would rather see us miserable and straight than queer and happy.
what this show did with the “being a nerd” trope was honestly one of my favorite parts of this season
matt says here that he knows what its like to be the nerd we all know what he means by that he was probably bullied and teased just like pidge and empathizes with her situation but tells her that she should keep studying
but she says
“what’s the point?”
good question pidge
as of this point the only thing “being a nerd” means to pidge is the rejection and mockery of her classmates
look at her shes crying okay how many times have yall cried in school and not even like in the bathroom stall in the fucking classroom okay that shit is not fun
heck shes not even sitting at the front of the class or with anyone else shes sitting by the window near the back basically by herself in the classic “main character whos different/disconnected from everyone else” anime spot
shes angry and frustrated and hates that part of herself to the point where she says “what’s the point?” which is a statement of defeat
she was ready to (literally) throw that part of her aside because she was tired of all the pain and angry and sadness that came with “being a nerd” (i mean could you even imagine what would have happened if she actually gave up pidge could have given up loving science and technology and would have never gotten into the garrison or done anything remotely “nerd” related because of how much pain this brought her)
and then this happens
her mood is immediately changed shes overjoyed at her brother getting into the Garrison she probably saw him study like a monster and how nervous he was for the test and how hard he worked and then
she goes back and picks up that book
and its an immediate 180 in her attitude towards studying and “being a nerd” because now she sees a reason to keep being a nerd
she didn’t stop being a nerd she made that part of who she was
she saw people in her life who were nerds people who were her role models and her and were proud of it
and i think thats really awesome that matt was able to show pidge that there was nothing to be ashamed of in “being a nerd” and helped her embrace that part of her that was smart and curious and intelligent and who wanted to be like her brother and father and go to space and reach her goals and dreams and become the beautiful little nerd we know and love now
and that’s a message to all nerds - to embrace that part of you even if it brings you adversity because that part of you is incredible and capable of doing amazing things
Seriously, a couple of months ago I would have gladly gotten rid of the Vegas Golden Knights and their weird name but now it’s like, their prospects are adorable, their Twitter is a gift, Marc-Andre Fleury looks so happy and smiley and APPRECIATED and their jerseys are SPARKLY and I feel genuinely excited for them?!
Summary: It’s 1993 and the summer from many years ago is dead and gone. Many have drifted apart from the Losers club and its at the point where there is no club at all. The atmosphere is cold just like the winter months and the only blushes to be found are the ones that are caused from the piercing spikes of cold that heat skin up. Being a teenage boy is hard; especially for the two boys that now count each other as strangers. In which both boys make a plan, but both disrupt each others.

A/N: Shout out to @eddiekaspbraks for making THIS moodboard of this fanfiction series, it’s amazing and gO SEND THIS LOVELY BABE SOME LOVE !! BONUS POINTS IF ANYONE CAN GUESS WHAT SONG I WAS LISTENING TO WHILST WRITING RICHIE’S DESCRIPTION THROUGH EDDIE’S PERSPECTIVE
It was now Monday morning and Eddie felt his numb fingertips jitter at the seams of his jumper, feeling the weaves under his senseless skin without his pulse guiding him.
The pills were messing him up. Bad.
His doctor had prescribed the soft pink and white capsules in order to stop being gay, as if what he had was some sick mental illness. Eddie’s mother thought he was twisted, that the rumours weren’t true and that people were lying about her pride and joy. Several days later she realised that Eddie was in fact a homosexual boy. However, she refused to believe it and dragged him to every therapist and doctor in order to ‘save’ him.
He didn’t need saving, he was gay and that was that. He had only told Bill, Ben, Mike and Stan but somehow the word got around school, eventually a teacher had confronted his mother about the matter. He didn’t mean for everyone to know, but now that everyone did- the reaction he got towards his sexuality choice was repulsive.
"Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place", "I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe" "10 months older I won't give in, now that I'm clean I'm never gonna risk it"
