this is an upsetting post

anonymous asked:

Hello, just wondering what the difference is between 'shipper trolls' and 'real shippers'. As you said yourself, there are bad eggs in both camps. I have lost respect for many shippers over their treatment if MM, which, I assume, comes from jealousy and envy. I applaud you for acknowledging that people from both sides behave badly.

Okay, I am answering this ask only to clarify what I meant, but I will tell you now that I am side-eyeing your “lost respect” comment.

A “shipper troll” and “anti troll” are just TROLLS, they are most often neither shippers nor antis.

By definition from Wikipedia:

An internet troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion,[3] often for the troll’s amusement. 

These trolls, by the nature of wanting to sow discord, simply pick a side, any side.

Some will pick the shipper side, some will pick the anti side, but they are just miserable people who enjoy provoking the reader and will chose to do so by whatever means.

In the Outlander fandom we have seen trolls get involved in shipping, in politics and other topics where they can just post opposing views to irritate and insult people.

So, yes…these “shipper trolls” are NOT shippers.

Hope that clarifies.

Response to Obsessivesassenach’s Rant

Oh dear. Well, Nip’s upset. She posted a huge hate post against “antis” all the while claiming to only be full of ‘LOVE.”  Yup.

Okay, she wants a thoughtful response. She will get one. But first I just have to comment on this one line:

“Yes you are the borg of Antis as the foil to the Shippers.”

I have no idea what that line means but heck I have to admit it is a great line in its sheer over the top strangeness. Brava!

So let’s look at some of Nip’s assertions shall we. I’m only going to take choice lines because her post was long.

“There are all types of shippers…but what brings them together is not just their love of Outlander… but their love of the LOVE parts of Outlander and all the LOVE associated with Outlander in promos, BTS, interviews, Q&As, social media banter between the cast and crew, etc. LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE. So you generally don’t see shippers on social media attacking people with hatred and lies and accusations of criminal activity.”

Really? Do you folks ever read your own blogs? Even when I was a shipper I was bothered by the hate you dished out at one particular truther and “antis” or “monkeys” in general. I know you folks have written horrible things about me. I have the screencaps. Some of you just literally made stuff up about me out of thin air. And you accused me of being someone I wasn’t for like a YEAR until you doxxed/ threatened me (4 times) and figured out, oh, maybe she isn’t that other person after all. Ooops!

You ES write nasty, often totally untrue, things about “antis” all the time. And this post is another example of one of your hate posts. Not to mention the hate IG accounts set up to just hate on Mac. So please don’t tell me you come from a place of “LOVE.”

This is long but Nip’s post is long, so the rest will be under the cut.

Just recently, my precious cat Boo, has returned home after going missing for over a month and a half. She returned with her fur cut, nails clipped, and a bit underfed, needless to say I’m happy but also upset. I’m happy my cat came home, buy upset due to the conditions she returned in. For this post today, I would like to show how Sweetfish saved Khum from certain doom.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely love your art to pieces. You're an amazing, kindhearted individual and just because one *sshole troll think they know more than you doesn't mean anything. Drama is so annoying and it sucks at you're going through that

aww thank you!! <3

just to make it clear, i didn’t post that screencap because i’d be like… genuinely upset by that dumbass journal (though admittedly i have been slightly rustled by the sheer absurdity of it)

i just wanted to share it because i thought it was freakin hilarious lmao

u know me, always mining for salt

anonymous asked:

how are safe spaces bad?? they're "safe" spaces. safety is good right? what paper was this?

I KNOW. i’m in a creative nonfiction class and i believe the assignment was an essay on something political and ??? i spent an hour ranting after reading it bc holy crap??? it was like “safe spaces are about running away and if a bunch of black ppl get together isnt that segregation, can you believe university presidents address issues? the nightclub shooting? i’m not gay? i am Upset someone posted suicide hotlines, we aren’t fragile children!!  and also you know what it’s really hard to be conservative in life okay gosh” (i went back and read it so that i could Properly paraphrase it.) :-) 

Happy 1-year Anniversary~!

So apparently, today is Pazzmatsu’s one year anniversarry! Hurrah! (Or maybe it was some other day, but generally right now!) 

In celebration of that, we have many things in store for us!

1: The staff is giving away 30 Matsu Points!
Be sure to check your inbox before April 3!

2: New event! We’re going to have the 1st “Sextuplet Attack!” event!

Mod choro already posted about it previously– I’m only guessing from google translate’s tweet, but it seems like they’re changing the way how event works, and it involves a ranking system now! I’ve partially seen how it works, and I’ll make another post about it eventually.

I’m gonna be very upset if we’re only getting the new sprite based on ranking…

If anyone can also help us out in translating it, that would be really swell! (Who uses swell as a word anymore omg dsajdlkaj)

3: New sprites– the Sports Series!

These new ones are 4-stars, only just rares. Super Rares? We really got to establish some kind of terminology for those, huh.

And for a limited time, doing a 10-roll guarantees you at least one Sport Series sprite! Until April 5!

And some final words:

The staff is evil trying to change how the event works– now I’m being forced to compete in a ranking system, just like tabi? EVIL, EVIL I TELL YOU!!!

- mod ichi


IMPORTANT EDIT:

Apparently there’s a new button on the menu which lets you buy any sprites you want. At least, any 3-4 stars sprites (everything but the Ultra Rare ones). That is– if you manage to get a character ticket in the event. More as I manage to translate the actual thing!!!!

(also it seems like they’ll be implementing a 2nd skill…)

I AM EXCITE

if there’s one thing I’ve learned from fiction it’s this

if you’re eavesdropping and hear people talking about you and they say something upsetting

make sure you stay and hear the conversation to the end don’t just run off into the night  you dumb chucklefuck

they really are just acorns

DM: “you open the box left by the Firbolg, revealing 12 ordinary acorns neatly placed in separate compartments" 
Player: “are they magical?”
DM: “Roll Arcana”
-player rolls a 4-
DM: “you think they might be acorns”
other player: “can I try?”
DM: “sure”
-player rolls a 17-
DM: “you are definitely certain that they are non-magical acorns”
yet another player: “can I roll to identify them?”
DM: “roll nature”
player rolls a natural 20
DM -sighs- “each of the 12 acorns is slightly different, your memory suddenly flashes to a page you once read in a book showing different types of oak trees, and you realize that at least 3 of the species are extinct”
yet another player: “can I roll to see if the trees are magi–”
DM, who has had enough of this: “They are just ordinary acorns. This is what a Firbolg considers to be a precious artifact, he was trying to ensure the biodiversity of planet. have I explained it well enough? we only have like 40 minutes and you still haven’t fought the necromancer
players: "huh?”
DM: “roll for initiative.”

MAJOR SU SPOILER WARNING!!

BIG BIG SPOILERS EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING AGES FOR.

The SU tags are FULL of giant spoilers and, depending on who you follow, your dash might contain leaked images, too. Episodes from the app have been ripped and posted on dailymotion, etc.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE MAJORLY SPOILED!! PLEASE TAG YOUR POSTS IF YOU REBLOG SPOILERS!!

Just read the lyrics for Jin’s Awake and I’m in tears yet again. His song talks of how he feels like he’ll never be as good as the rest of bts, how he’ll never “touch the sky” but he’s stubborn and will try even if it’s impossible. It’s so sad to think that our beautiful jin feels that way, because he’s SO important and SO beautiful and talented, he can easily touch the sky, in fact he can do so much more. I never EVER want him to think he’s not good enough. He can touch the sky, literally anything is possible for someone like him I wish he could understand that.

some reminders if we do get sana for s4:

  •  with all the islamophobia and xenophobia in the world at the moment (such as geert wilders, whose twitter banner literally is ‘stop islam’, being one of the leading candidates of the dutch election yesterday) a season with sana in the lead couldn’t have come at a better time tbh 
  • to people who think sana as s4 main is “rushed”: sana had a major subplot in s2, and she was involved in s3 (even if that was to a large extent to help isak’s development, sana and her religion was still important) so she’s not more rushed than any other character on the show imo 
  •  a season with sana would probably break some of the norms of the show which would be very interesting to see (for example, her backstory in s2 had to do with her family relations – how will the show solve that, when sana still lives at home?) 
  • apart from the boys, sana is probably the character who would give isak (and by extension, even) the most screen-time
  • on that note: the last season’s main is always ‘followed up’ in the next season (eva and jonas post-breakup in s2, noora coming back from london in s3)
  • RETURN OF THE GIRL SQUAD!!! 
  • sana is so wise and clever and perceptive and can you imagine how cool it would be to see a whole season from her point of view? 
  • also sana has such a tough exterior, so seeing what goes on when she lets her guard down? probably amazing and emotionally touching 
  • i know many of you want even for s4, and i get that, i really do… but whichever character julie has chosen, it’s probably with good reason, and we probably have an awesome season in store no matter what 
  • have faith in julie andem!! lord knows she’s earned it
