How not to look at your Captain #053

You know who doesn’t get enough love? Ace boys. So here’s to the demi or grey-ace or ace boys. Here’s to the boys who get told by society that they should be all about sex but who don’t feel the same way. Here’s to the aro boys who get told they’re jerks for not wanting a relationship. It’s ok, you’re ok! You and your feelings are valid.

things i understand: people not liking youtubers
things i do not understand: people finding it necessary to put posts stating they do not like youtubers in these youtubers’ tags

Why are you so in love with science? (not meant in a bad way, I'm just curious)

I guess it’s because science just sort of makes sense to me, on a fundamental level.

The processes of science and scientific analysis are very in line with how I see the world and how I think. I’ve always been a very sort of analytic thinker. Like I was the kid who always had to know why and was always questioning everything and always tries to explain everything (to the point that I was, at time, a very obnoxious child). 

I like facts. I like seeing how things fit together. I like sorting through things and finding the bigger picture and then seeing how the individual details slot into it. 

It’s how I make sense of the world I guess. Trying to find an explanation for things I don’t understand. It’s why I was never good at being religious but am fascinated by the history of religion and how it creates and is created by society. 

And it goes beyond the purely natural and physical sciences. I feel similarly about the social sciences and history and anything that relies on critical analysis. 

On a fundamental level I want to know why. And science, at it’s core, is an attempt to answer that question. 

A-Spec headcanons are wonderful and valid.

Theres nothing wrong with headcanoning characters as a-spec. 

You dont need to go to great lengths to justify or provide evidence for your a-spec headcanons to make them valid. 

A-spec headcanons are harmless and a-spec people have every right to have a-spec headcanons. 

Theres nothing wrong or bad about having a-spec headcanons. 

baby, go home. he’s seen somebody else’s eyes and fallen into them. 

i know it hurts in places you can’t touch, i know the sky feels darker for it. but he’s loved somebody else, baby, and so should you.

don’t stay. you’ll spend your time worrying what you did wrong, whether tomorrow you’ll wake up and he’ll be gone. you’ll try to become better for him when you’re already somebody’s impossible dream. you’ll try to be her when you’re already exactly who you need to be.

people make mistakes, but nobody accidentally winds up naked. either he loves you enough to keep his clothes on, or he doesn’t love you enough for you to waste your time on him.

go home. cry. take long showers. tell yourself you deserve better than a future spent worrying about him.

relationships are built on trust. find somebody who won’t mess it up.

im sorry but how can anyone fucking honest to god call serial killers “cinnamon rolls” and “pure” and fucking just completely dismiss what they did!! ive seen three different people do that today now like!!! no!!! wyd!!! they KILLED people and if you cant what’s wrong with that and cant see that they should NOT be idolized then i seriously question your morals because friendly reminder!!!! murder is fucking wrong!!!

theres nothing wrong with picking a name for yourself that ppl think is “ weird”. theres nothing wrong with having multiple names. theres nothing wrong with deciding you arent comfortable with using a name you once liked, whether you went by that name for weeks or for years

It doesn’t matter what I do..I’m..what’s wrong. There’s nothing..I can do about it. If I’m not hurting m-myself-f, I’m hurting everyone around me. There’s nothing I can do about it.

I’m..I-I’m broken!

Aromantics do not have to be in queerplatonic relationships. Aromantics do not have to get “friend-married.” Aromantics do not need to make up for our lack of romantic attraction. There isn’t an empty void left behind that we have to fill with some other form of a deep relationship. Choosing not to pursue these things is completely fine and doesn’t invalidate anyone.

just. a rant. so scanlan leaving and everything around that brought up LOTS of shit from my own life, family and friends and secrets and everything and that had me really fucked up. and then THE FUCKER BROUGHT IN TARYON AND HES MY LEAST FAVORITE KIND OF PERSON just e x h a u s t i n g and i dont know what to do about this. like. im just Tired right now and i dont know if i can actually watch Tary without just dying and aaaaaaaaugh why sam

yeah, there was a lot of heavy stuff there. you can always back out a little if that’s what you need, pal––take care of yourself first

aside of that, Sam loves Scanlan as much as we do and he’s always about a dozen steps ahead of everyone else. it doesn’t make this any less abrupt and exhausting, but it’s a bit of optimism, I hope

sometimes i wonder if the antis are so repulsed by Kylo Ren’s behavior (as he’s an Unsympathetic Abuse Victim™) because it mirrors their own bad behaviors back at them and they, too, are Unsympathetic Abuse Victims™

Please don’t apologize
for the oxygen your lungs take
or the carbon they make.
The elements by which you are powered
and of which you are made
and which you take and remake,
melt down, reforge,
in the furnace beneath your ribs –
these are given to you freely,
a love letter from the ancient stars,
and each of your exhalations
is a heartfelt reply:

Yes, I hear you.
Yes, I am yours.

And your breath feeds the green,
and your flesh feeds the earth,
and your light feeds mine,
fills this space, makes me shine.

So breathe deep. Breathe slow.
You have stories to tell.
You are one with the cosmos,
and you are well.
