Eighth graders refuse to have picture taken with Paul Ryan
Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the Capitol.

A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday.

Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol.

When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints.

‘Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,’ said one.

I know it’s The Daily Mail, but I love the kids. Love them.

See, here's the thing, I'm a larrie, yes, so I believe that babygate is a stunt, but I don't care about it personally. However I see how it affects Louis, his image and his career. So yeah, I want it to end. 100%. I can't rest if it doesn't. Not because it affects me, but because it affects Louis.

do you have any tips on doing palette swaps? I can never get the colour to the right shade when I try.

Nas here! I don’t know what program you use for editing, but I use Paint Tool Sai since it’s free (I think?) and relatively simple, and I can give you a basic breakdown of my process:

Yeah so I blocked that guy I don’t have time in my life for someone who thinks “muh free speech” is an excuse to intentionally trigger someone. Like sorry but I just don’t care about whether or not you think your rights are being infringed upon by respecting other people.

Send a “first time” and a member and as many details as you want! It could be anything from the obvious “first kiss” to some more original prompts “first appartment“ or “first time flying a F-22 together while fighting an alien invasion”, I don’t know, could be anything :))

Good afternoon

since trans day of visibility is coming up in a few days (march 31st), i figured i’d make a list of advice for cis people commenting on/reblogging people’s posts/selfies?

  • do definitley like and reblog and tag and comment on our posts!! its what TDOV is for! show your support for the community by showing us some love
  • dont post any selfies if ur cis. today is not about u
  • if ur gonna comment about how great someone looks, great!!
  • just make sure u use the right pronouns/descriptors. most people put their pronouns on their selfies, but if they dont its easy to check their bio to see if they have them! 
  • also dont say stuff like “wow ur prettier than I am!!” bc that implies that u think cis ppl are more attractive as a default, so its insulting and patronising
  • if the post is one with pics from multiple stages throughout someones transition, pls dont say “its not fair u get to be hot in both genders!” because thats cissexist n transphobic and adheres to the “used to be a X” rhetoric and erases people with fluid genders and implies that cis ppl inherently deserve to be hotter/better 
  • go thru the tdov tags!! spread some love to all of us (not just conventionally attractive and/or passing people)
  • its not only selfies either. lots of ppl post some really cool content so dont miss out on that either

thats all i can think of rn. feel free to add on if u want

EDIT: okay so lots of people have said things along the lines of “im going to post selfies and theres nothing you can do about it” or “i want to post selfies anyway” and like. cool. whatever. im all for celebrating urself with selfies. just,, dont make this day about you okay? like keep out of the tags and dont make it an ally thing. and to the people who want to post selfies just because its a trans ppl day and for no other reason: fuck u

i rotated and traced the picture of lances family because there was a bunch of talk about his ethnicity and name this morning so here they are. bless our mixed race baby

edit: ok so this found it’s way round tumblr and I realised I had worded this really badly. Personally, I believe Lance is 100% Cuban, with white (latinx) and brown (still Iatinx) family. I never meant to imply that Lance was anything but cuban or latino or that cubans can’t be light and/or dark skinned. I want to apologize to whoever was hurt by this misunderstanding.

However I also got some messages from people of mixed ethnicity that was hurt by other peoples anger at anything other than a “pure blooded” cuban Lance since it felt like their mixed identity was looked down on as less than “a real cuban”, and that is also a valid point. People immigrate and emigrate from and to all places of the world and denying the existence of mixed people/kids are also not a good thing, especially since they’re already exposed to other-ing from their communities in the real world. Though it’s not my own headcanon I think you are free to envision these people however you want.

Is Kara in love with Mon-El?

So, I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve come to the conclusion that she is not. And it’s not just wishful thinking and/or because I can’t stand him. There are actual clues in canon that show that Kara is not in love with her boyfriend. Here’s why:

Exhibit A

The way Kara acts around her love interests. She gets flustered, blushes a lot, acts awkward around them. 

around James:

around Adam:

around Mon-El: error 404 example not found. I can’t recall a single Karamel scene where Kara acts like this.

Bonus: around Lena:

Exhibit B

The trope that a love interest watches and looks at their crush dreamily as they leave.

James:

I know that Mon-El looked at Kara like this at least once too, but I’m really not in the mood to gif him so I’m gonna skip that since that’s not the point of this post. The point is to show that Kara is not in love with Mon-El, not vice versa.

But another person also looked at her like this, and even received this look from Kara herself in the latest Supergirl episode…

Exhibit C

These are actual quotes that Kara said about/to Mon-El:

  • “You are so selfish!”
  • “You are still the same macho egotistical Daxamite!”
  • “It’s not just the jealousy. It’s the patronizing ego thing.”
  • “Well, the first bit about your infuriating male ego, that part I meant.”
  • “More like you’re an arrogant dude-bro.”
  • “I can handle Mxyzptlk, but it’s Mon-El who’s infuriating.”

She’s never said things like these to James, and definitely not as excessively as she’s complaining about Mon-El. On the contrary, she said “You make me better.”

Another bonus; things she said about/to Lena:

  • “Kara Danvers believes in you.”
  • “I believe in her.”
  • “You are too good and too smart to follow in her path.”
  • “Now you have someone that will stand up for you, always.”

Exhibit D

This is Kara’s reaction when Mon-El first tells her about his feelings for her:

Exhibit E

This is Kara’s reaction when Mon-El says “I love you” for the first time:

In conclusion: I honestly don’t believe for a second that Kara has feelings for Mon-El. The most logical explanation is that she felt obligated to give Mon-El a chance because that’s what everyone told her to do or that she felt lonely and Mon-El knew what it’s like to lose a planet.
We know how Kara behaves around the person she’s crushing on. There are patterns. And we can’t see any of these patterns when Kara is around Mon-El. Besides the occasional kiss and “I’m happy” she doesn’t show any signs of having feelings for him. They haven’t even gone on any dates, not counting the one she took him on to “save” Lena.

Meanwhile @ CatCo:

Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Feel free to comment and/or add more.

Do you ever get emotional thinking about Victor choreographing Yuuri’s Free Skate for him?

We’ve only ever seen Yuuri skating that routine - but remember. Someone taught him those movements. Someone demonstrated the choreography first.

Think about Victor skating Yuuri’s routine for him. Imagine him sitting down, listening to the music, and writing out Yuuri’s story through dance.

Victor would have had to understand that story, which means Yuuri shared it with him. The lonely beginning where he thought he was fighting by himself. What it felt like when Victor showed up and changed everything. That poignant moment when Yuuri came to understand love existed all around him.

And in order to translate that story into choreography, Victor would have had to empathize with it and feel those emotions himself so that he could properly express them.

He would have to understand what it feels like to fight alone.

And to have someone show up and challenge that viewpoint.

And then come to realize love is all around him.

Victor choreographed the end of Yuuri’s story before it even happened.

“Here’s the part where you show you’re the most beautiful person on the ice. Here’s where you soar on your new understanding of love. And this is when you rise up and fight - not by yourself but with your loved ones at your side.”

Victor would have had to empathize with those feelings as well. (Who could have taught him all that, I wonder?)

But this right here.

I don’t think Victor choreographed this final pose.

His reaction when he first sees it gives it away. Yuuri surprised Victor with that pose, and it was originally intended to be something else.

Yuuri choreographed this acknowledgement of Victor at the end of his Free Skate. It was a message to him.

“And here’s the part where I thank the person who got me here.”

Do you ever just get really emotional thinking about Yuuri’s Free Skate?

  • Gay misogyny: A gay man conveniently ignoring his male privilege and thinking he gets a free pass to be openly misogynistic and hate all women. Basically Milo Yiannopolous
  • NOT gay misogyny: A gay man yelled at you for treating mlm relationships like fap material and for defending Killing Stalking or any other homophobic piece of media. Or gay men not showing interest in dating or having sex with women.
  • Shiro: *walks out of his room with bedhead and without a shirt*
  • Allura: *passes him*
  • Shiro: *voice low with sleep* mornin' Princess
  • Allura: Good morning, Shiro.
  • Allura: *thinking* i have died and ascended, this isn't real, nothing is real anymore

I will be adding to this as I think of more, feel free to drop suggestions in my ask box here!


Passive Magick [Part 1]

Why Teens Shouldn’t Run Revolutions

Hi guys. I’m going to piss off a lot of YA writers (and possibly readers) today, so hang onto your hats.

Mainly, if you’re in love with the idea of a high schooler with no strategic or combat experience heading up a revolution or war because they’re “so dedicated and determined,” don’t read this. Please, don’t. You’re not going to see anything you like. Go ahead and keep enjoying your guilty pleasure – that’s fine. I’m not going to own up to some of the guilty pleasures I love in fiction but don’t buy for a second in real life. That’s chill. Go for it, man.

But there are just things that I – and readers like me – are tired of seeing. If you’re sick of that trope, then keep reading. If you’re open to the idea of ditching that trope in your writing, then I really recommend reading.

This assessment/collection of tips on why teens shouldn’t run revolutions - and if you’re going to make them, how they CAN do it well - will include comparisons to history, other fiction (Unplugged), and Black Butler. Plus swearing and a range of incorrect capitalizations, because it’s fun.

On we go:
