Person A and B have a long-distance relationship, so they Skype everyday.
Person A has insomnia and Person B apparently has a soothing voice that’s made A almost fall asleep multiple times.
One day when A is tired and wants to sleep but can’t, B starts humming trying to sooth A’s insomnia and makes A fall asleep.
B is also tired but “God Damn I care for you more than myself” and/or B doesn’t realize that they made A fall asleep.
Me, 1997: wow Batman is so cool, especially the animated series, Joker’s so great and I love him with Harley, poor girl, she’s so cool but maybe things will go her way someday? Even so they’re villains so, idk, maybe this true love to them? Joker and Harley 4ever!
Me, 2017: Batman’s gay. No literally gay. Gay gay gay. Gay for days. Gay for J. Harley’s gay too. Gay for Iv-ay. Gotham’s so fucking gay, like Sin City meets Castro. Only Alfred and Gordon are hetero. And absolutely surrounded by gays. In tights. Gays in fights. Gays in tight tights having gay fights with dark knights.
Can I just remind people that many bisexual and pansexual people, myself included, use gay as an umbrella term for all people attracted to the same sex and we use it as a descriptor for our and everyone’s same sex attraction because it’s specific to that part of our identity. So please stop policing me for using gay to describe my and characters’ same sex attraction. Using gay as an umbrella term is not the same as invalidating and erasing a bi/pansexual person’s identity.
it’s my last day at church tomorrow and apparently everyone wants to pray for me so I’m gonna have to go up in the center of the sanctuary and be Paid Attention To and pretend that any of this moves me emotionally (it never has which is part of why i felt so guilty before), all of which I hate, but it’ll be my last time so it’s endurable
anyway they wanted to “lay hands on me” bc that’s extremely standard when praying for someone in this type of Christianity, but i said no to that because that many people touching me for that long is like……a Nightmare so now Mom’s going to touch me and they’re going to touch Mom, but I don’t actually get why touching is necessary?
like if it comforts the person you’re praying for, sure that’s a good thing, but like, it clearly doesn’t me, so why bother with the circumlocution? surely if God is all-powerful, He has the capability to hear and understand prayers without the pray-ers being in physical contact with the subject of the prayer?
I’m not mocking here, it’s just weird to me that Mom’s response to “I don’t want to be touched by strangers” is “okay, the strangers will touch me on your behalf while I touch you to pass it on” and not “okay, touching isn’t necessary”.
