theres not more to tag i think

i hate when ace and aro people make loveless marriages about themselves because theres so much more to it. lots of (primarily nonwhite) cultures force young adults into arranged marriages just because that’s how things are done. gay people marry people of the gender they aren’t attracted to in order to stay safe. its not new or cute to say that people can get married even if they aren’t in love. it just shows how sheltered you are that you believe most marriages are for love

“a traumatic backstory doesn’t make up for being a shitty person”

how about we blame the fucking writers for making victims of trauma huge assholes all the time

how about we punch the writer in the face every time a victim of abuse becomes the villain

types of fans
  1. memorises specific details because they reread or rewatch regularly, can quote entire passages or scenes, slays during trivia
  2. analyses for deeper meaning, engages in online discussion, writes meta essays for fun
  3. completely loyal to the original source material, probably close their eyes and cover their ears because any spin-off or adaption is a travesty that they ignore the existence of
  4. loves anything, new or old, to do with the fandom, even when things border on the absurd and retcon the original material because THE MORE, THE BETTER
  5. likes to play with the world and the characters, loves creating and sharing headcanon, fanfiction, fanart or graphics; maybe even roleplays
  6. creates funny text posts, liveblogs reactions, probably likes to stir the fandom up for fun
  7. klasjdkasjd I JUST LOVE THIS THING OKAy

aqours injury hc’s

chika: kinda clumsy and reckless as a kid; has probably broken at least three bones among her arms and legs. likes to joke about it and reference her accidents in conversation. her favorite accident is the time she got mikan juice in her eyes

riko: too indoors-y for much injury and pretty careful with prevention but also prone to some bad bad illness by virtue of accidentally neglecting hazards like the freezing ocean. may have been bitten by a dog

you: shares several Incidents with chika, but gets injured slightly less thanks to muscle reinforcement. she does hit her head on the side of the pool while doing laps tho, and probably had some judo-related accidents

kanan: scrapes n scratches but like. her joints and stuff are all fine. very careful, Strong, takes care of herself to take care of everybody else. 

mari: fell off her horse at least once. possibly been attacked by other animals but nothing too bad, and also she had that one ankle injury that Changed Everything. does more dangerous things after joining aqours but manages to avoid serious injury somehow. cuts her fingers on bills

dia: probably sprained both her ankles while jumping from high places. gets her fingers cut on string instruments, papers and kitchenware. the only person in aqours to have managed to bruise both of her palms at once

hanamaru: worst that’s ever happened to her is dropping a stack of hardbound books on her toes or tongue burns or someth. sometimes she’s tempted to do something like chika and you but then she hears kanan in her conscience and she thinks again.

ruby: dia and maru are very careful to make sure nothing bad happens to ruby, but one time while sewing she pricked her finger bad enough for blood to drip and trail around the house a bit while looking for help. dia, having cried for only five minutes, handled the incident relatively well, ruby thinks

yoshiko: thanks to horrible luck and dramatic, reckless tendencies, everything’s happened to yoshiko. in particular she’s burned her hands on candles and stoves and has probably given herself mild food poisoning. somehow she’s still brimming with vitality

I will never be over Sherlock Holmes practically pleading with Molly Hooper to say “I love you” to him.

Hey, so I just found out something really cute? Phar and Sym’s countries both have lotuses as their national flowers! India’s national flower is the Nelumbo nucifera (aka sacred lotus) while Egypt’s national flower is the Nymphaea lotus (aka white lotus…technically it’s a water lily but folks call it a lotus too).

This isn’t a call-out post for a specific person. I’ll just call her X. Fan X made a post to complain about mean anti-reylo fans, saying how reylo shippers were being unfairly accused of racism (among other things). She cross-tagged her post with the finnrey tag. (Anyone who’s spent time in the finnrey tag has seen similar posts, yeah?) I sent X a PM, politely asking her to remove the tag. Some people had already commented on the post, asking for the tag to be removed, but it was still there, and I figured a PM might get her attention faster. I mentioned in passing that her post was off-track as well as badly tagged, and thought that would be the end of it. 

Instead it evolved into a conversation where X wanted to prove that she’s a fan of Finn, and she has NEVER EVER seen anything racist said about him on her dashboard from her fellow reylo fans. 

So before I dove back into the conversation, I did a keyword search on her tumblr. One of her most recent reblogs at that moment was a post that talks about how Finn is a beta male and inferior to Rey, and Rey had to save him 100 times, and so forth. (Some of y’all know the post I’m talking about. And no, I’m not exaggerating on the wording of it, that’s literally what it said… along with a bunch of light-and-dark and Romeo-and-Juliet imagery about reylo.)

X hadn’t noticed it. She missed the blatant racism and erasure of Finn as a lead in the post. She liked the pretty wording about how epic reylo is going to be, and that was enough to make the racism not ‘visible’ to her.

That’s what I think of when I see someone say that they’ve never seen anyone being racist in [insert ship or character or movie/show name here] fandom: a fan who will reblog a blatantly racist post that comes across their dashboard, and then have the ignorant bliss to say that they’ve never seen any racism in their section of fandom. 

okay but

I don’t Discourse, but I get so angry when people dismiss asexual’s people’s problems as something like “Boohoo, you don’t want to fuck, no one gives a shit”.

But it’s so much more than that. Obviously it’s not homophobia, never was and never will be. It doesn’t even compare, it’s not the same thing at all. 

But there are issues asexual people face like - there is pressure, part of it from society, and a lot of it come for ourselves. And that kind of self-hate and self-loathing and thinking you’re broken and unloveable, developping unhealthy sexual behaviour and self-harm - it’s a thing, it’s definitely a thing, not something 14-year-old kids on tumblr made up for attention. It can really mess you up, mess your relationships up, and people are so afraid to talk about it - I read words of older people - and I don’t mean people my age, I mean people in their 50s, their 60s - probably they don’t even know asexuality is even a thing, they got married and had kids and always felt wrong, because they hate sex and they never wanted it and never felt comfortable around it but they did it, quietly, never said a fucking word, and hated themselves a bit more every single time because they never understood why they felt they were missing what they were always told was supposed to be a fundamental part of themselves. They spent their entire life thinking they were broken.

and. it’s not homophobia, it’s not bigotry from an entire society keeping you from jobs and housing, etc. there’s no stats or anything. And maybe a lot of non-asexual people relate to this self-loathing, too. Things are never completely clear cut - there is always some overlapping. It doesn’t make it any less important. It’s still a thing that most asexual people go through, at least for part of their life, and it can really, really mess someone up. And there’s no need to get into discourse or into any (useless and frankly asinine) comparisons - it just needs to be taken seriously for what it is, because people’s health and happiness are what’s at play and it matters, too.

“My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.” - Agatha Christie, The Mystery of the Blue Train

Can I just say how unbelievably happy I am with all the canon lgbta+ representation in podcasts? Almost every podcast I can think of has at least one lgbta+ person, and they’re main characters.
To all the podcast creaters: thank you. It means so much to me.

  • viktor: what are you getting otabek for valentine's day, yurio?
  • yurio: *pulls out a long list* well, i've had a lot of ideas. He seems to really like motorcycles and those glasses he wears when he rides them, so i'm considering getting him customized motor biking goggles. there's also his love of skating to consider, so i could paint motorcycles on his skates as a surprise? he might not like those though... i was also thinking of getting matching boyfriend shirts?? also i was considering getting him on a body pillow for myself on valentines d
