this is literally all that matters

CONFESSION:

I recently had a Dalish fan tell me that the opression casteless dwarf
dwarves face is not important and only the elf opression matters
because the Dwarves are just a fan service added to and I quote
“Shut Dwarf Fans Up”. She literally said that to me in a post. :(
As someone who loved playing elves as much as I love my dawrves…I got
so angry by that statement that I literally deleted all of my Lavellans.
If only Dalish elves are available in the next game simply won’t play them.
I will play a city elf though so I am hoping for that. I just don’t understand why people have to be so mean about things. I will understand
if the mods don’t post this. I just need to vent. I’m sorry.


MOD NOTE: 

You have nothing to be sorry about Confessor. And there are some truly awesome Dalish/Lavellan fans out there and I know they will instantly tell you that the person that posted that to you does not speak for the fandom. And feel free to vent anytime.

there is no denying that zayn had it the hardest out of ot5. no matter how many of you try to ignore his existence and pretend he wasn’t in the group at all. no matter how hard you have your heart set on larry being real.

zayn’s faith is real. zayn’s race is real. there is literally no argument around it.

and yet, for five years, modest tried to hide up zayn’s religion as much as they possibly could. they ignored his faith. they ignored the discrimination made against him. they took his race and used it to twist him into an image that was not zayn malik–they took the only poc in the band and forced upon him a dark, mysterious, bad boy image, unlike the rest of the boys.

when zayn was attacked for who he is, he went ignored by his band and his team. no one stepped up to defend him.

five years of this. zayn went through this for five years. and one day, he decided he didn’t want to feel alone anymore. he didn’t want to feel ignored. he didn’t want to be tied to a career that didn’t let him be himself.

two years ago today, zayn malik gave up one direction to pursue his own happiness. he gave up his four “brothers” to be himself and do what he loves. he made the tough decision in choosing his mental health over the reason he’s even here today.

and he is so remarkably successful

i could not be more proud of him.

y’all.. i just wanna say…. right here… gerard way and bert mccracken dated. it’s a simple fact of life. the earth is round. the sky is blue. bert and gerard dated. i don’t even???? ship it??? but it’s literally undeniable. it doesn’t matter if i ship it or not. it happened.

anonymous asked:

there is nothing wrong with lauren saying camren shippers are invasive and sexual her and camilas friendship. because you guys do, its a fact. also " not all CS should be out in the same boat" is literally the same thing as "not all men". obviously she was talking about the camren shippers that constantly harass her.

I’m not going to enter a debate with you anon, first because I’m sick and I don’t feel like fighting today and second of all because I’m pretty sure that no matter what I say to you you’re not gonna want to hear, because if you’re not a CS you can’t understand how it feels and how Lauren’s words, even if it was directed to the harassing CS, hurt a lot of us who never meant in any way to disrespect her and Camila.

heeeey! I got the Commission list done finally! 

The last one was the kind of sketches you can ask for they all literally cost the same as the one on the very top just different variations and different time frames the more to the right it goes the longer it takes. Anyways here’s the full list.


Sketches (these takes a few hours)

Full Body ; $3

Waist-up ;$2

Head Shot ; $1

-From here on it doesn’t matter if you want detailed characters or Background the prices won’t change but the maximum of heavily drawn characters are 2 anymore will add an additional $4-

1600x1200 Canvas Size 

Block color ; $15

Full paint ; $25 ( If you’re wondering why this costs so much it takes me roughly about 6-24 hours to make one of these depending on the detail, so you get my drift)

1024x1024 Canvas Size

Block Color ; $10

Full Paint ; $15

-I only accept payment upfront-

the reason for this is actually because I’ve seen and heard a lot of artists complaining/ranting about making a commission they don’t necessarily pay for them and before someone actually waltz in here to rant about how “Why do I even need to pay for these, It’s just pictures” Please keep in mind that even artists need to eat. Thank you for your patience and consideration

I use Paypal, So if you want to commission me you can message me through tumblr and I’ll give you my email, then we can discuss things there. When we’ve reached an agreement I’ll send you a payment request from Paypal 

This is the process of how you get your art after you pay for it

1. I will send you a sketch of it (a super rough-sketch with the block sketch still intact, In this stage you can still change what you want from the art by the sketch for example “can you change their clothes/pose” or “I want to change what i want entirely” without extra payment)

2. I will give you a half finished one ( if you want to change from here there will be an additional $2)

3. When it’s done I’ll give you the PNG/JPEG (your choice) version plus a signature/anything you want me to write to you on the PNG/JPEG, I won’t post it in any media unless you want me to and you have my permission to use it however you want as long as long as you don’t edit the watermark off of the artwork and claim the art as your own. (You can not change anything from here on out)


I’ll draw anything BUT old people because i don’t necessarily have the skill to make them to the best of what they can be/ as appeasing to the eye as they could be.


Any artwork will be done roughly around 1 day-1 week depending on the schedule of Commissions i have.

This’ll help me a lot with my daily needs and if you can’t commission that’s okay you don’t have to, if you could share and spread this around that’ll also help me alot

thank you for your continued support and your patience with me. I’ll see you next time~! Love, Lum

I’ve tried coming out to my mom and she doesn’t understand and won’t call me her son because I’m “her CHILD and that’s all that matters” and it’s hard to be angry at her because she’s a great mom in literally every other aspect of my life and would be perfect if I was a girl but I’m NOT and I just want ONE adult in my life to respect my pronouns for once so I can feel like I’m not a little girl playing pretend with the other children because my generation is “so obsessed with labels and changing things” and I’m just FUCKING DONE with being invalidated and always feeling too small and unable to fight or make a difference
I need help and validation and a binder and I needed puberty blockers a long time ago but it’s too late now and I just need so much more than I’m getting
Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I was born male. I’d probably still like dresses and that would be a whole other can of worms but at least I wouldn’t want to die because my body feels too small for me and the little curves it has are completely in the wrong places
I’m only 5'6 and 112lbs. I’m a size zero and will never be able to wear actual men’s clothes without looking like a little boy trying on dad’s shirts. My voice is so high that whenever I think I’m passing I talk and get a “sorry miss” and it just SUCKS! I’ll never pass without years of testosterone and even then I’ll look weird and just TOO SMALL. I just want to pass. That’s it. Is that too much to ask? I guess it is. I’ll never pass for a cis man. It’s hopeless for me.
I love every single one of my followers and I just want all of you to know that you’re great people, some of whom have supported me through so much shit. I’m so thankful for you. I love you. Please just try to love yourselves and stay true to who you are no matter what. If you see someone with a cute outfit on, tell them. Buy some flowers. It doesn’t matter who they’re for. Sing in the shower. Dance in the rain. Travel. Just do what you want and make the most out of the life that you have.
Please don’t waste it. Please don’t let anyone else dictate what you do with it. You are beautiful and strong. You are not perfect, but no one is. That’s okay.
You are enough.
I love you all so much. Thank you.

Various news organizations keep posting on Facebook to say “We’re tracking stories about hate crimes! Post yours below.” And the comments sections make me want to die because it’s literally all white people saying things like “My friend shared a Black Lives Matter link and I saw it for five seconds” or “My tax dollars went to some poor person who ate lobster with food stamps” and people saying that Jewish people are drawing their own swastikas. Every. Single. Time.

Okay, I know I shouldn’t read comments, but really, they shouldn’t be asking the public questions like that.

remember when The Interview™ came out where yoongi said his ideal type wasn’t limited to girls n all the homophobes were up in arms about “mistranslation!!!” and how the interview was translated from korean into japanese into english and we “shouldn’t take it so literally” but it turned out that if you looked at the original japanese it was even more unambiguous bc the phrase used literally translated as “gender doesn’t matter” and was ALSO derived from the same chinese phrase as the korean phrase? clocked.

“You’re not gay/trans/gendefluid, you’re too young! It’s just a phase.”

First of all, mind your own fucking business.

Second of all, how the fuck do you know? How do you know their experience better than they do? How do you know the inner truth of their mind better than them? You don’t, shut up.

Third of all, even if it is a phase, so what? Maybe in the future their identity will be different. Maybe it’ll turn out they’re not what they thought they were. What does it change? Why does it matter? The way they’ll feel in the future doesn’t change what they feel now. It doesn’t make their current identity less valid. That’s literally not how chronology works.

Fourth of all, fuck you.

but like…. after everything sherlock’s done for him, after literally dying and coming back to life only for him (twice), suffering torture and pain, after agreeing to first be best man at his wedding to someone else and delivering the heart-wrenching speech after which no one had any doubts about his feelings for the groom, after playing his own execution song and watching him dance with Mary, after relapsing (twice), after killing a man to save his marriage, and after agreeing to be the godfather of his baby, trying to focus on work during the whole ceremony to cover his sorrow, after all these things, to hear from John, the only person that’s ever mattered, that he would rather have everyone, anyone but Sherlock…. what kind of hell is this

PSA: If you're looking to buy prints, posters, or merch and come across a site called TeeChip DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM, EVER

They steal artwork from artists without their permission and attempt to resell low quality crap of it, and trick people into buying it by stating “BEST SELLER, NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES, LIMITED TIME ONLY”

And hey, guess what? Someone messaged me earlier and I found out that this “company” is selling MY ART that I definitely did not give permission to use, sell, or distribute.

This “company” literally edited out my work from the original images, rotated a few, and slapped them all onto a poster.

Uh, NO. Not cool at all.

I have already filed a DMCA and hope to have it taken down within a day, but who knows if they’ll even do that seeing as their “DMCA form” is literally an email to “someone who takes care of these matters” 🙃

PLEASE don’t support shitty “companies” like TeeChip who steal the hard work of others! If you ever recognize artwork that you suspect is stolen on any site that sells artwork or merch, please let the original artist know if you’re able to! It’s always greatly appreciated when people let us know this kind of shit is happening and we can take actions to stop it

I was thinking about Jon Ronson’s book about public shaming and about recent debates about political tactics and something came together:

When making arguments about ethics, white men consistently ignore power as a lens of analysis. For many of them, actions are either right or wrong regardless of power differentials between the people involved, the stakes for those with less power, and the options they have available to them.

Protesting to have Milo disinvited from your campus therefore becomes *just as bad* as Milo’s own actions towards marginalized people, despite the vast disparities in harm done and options available. (This is not a strawman. When y'all say, “This makes you just as bad as them,” that’s literally what you’re saying.) That Milo’s talk, as planned, would’ve caused serious, measurable, and irreparable harm to specific students, and that protesters had exhausted all “proper” channels for months beforehand, doesn’t seem to matter in this analysis.

All that matters is the specific action taken. “Preventing a person from speaking.” “Destroying property.” “Public shaming.” These actions are seen as unethical regardless of who did them and why, what consequences they face if they do not take these actions, and what other options–if any–they have available.

I keep coming back to MLK’s quote about riots being the language of the unheard. For the most part, people resort to tactics that fall into ethical grey areas because other tactics are unavailable or have already failed. I’m sure that there are people who do so despite having better options, just as there are always people who act unethically in other ways.

But unfortunately, for an outside observer with no skin in the game, it’s very hard to tell whether or not that’s the case. I saw so many posts patronizingly chiding Berkeley students for not trying other tactics before protesting and/or destroying property (although most did not destroy property, and the oft-used phrase “violent protest” implies much more than that). They had no idea of the lengths to which the protesters went to utilize “appropriate” means to keep themselves and their community safe. It didn’t work. They remained unheard.

Any ethics that ignores the role of power will privilege the powerful. Our Republican members of Congress don’t need to riot, set fires, and block the streets in order to get what they want. They do appropriate, ethical things like draft policies and have debates and vote. Because they have the power to. The specific actions they take–drafting policies, debating, voting–are not seen as inherently unethical things to do. Yet they’ve destroyed lives, families, and communities. They’ve achieved a level of destruction that even the rowdiest masked protesters never could, not that they’d want to.

Honestly if it wasn’t for Sanvers I would not be watching Supergirl right now. The writers are fucking everything up. What the hell is going on???? There’s so many plotlines that couldn’t even be connected with a 10 foot pole. Not to mention the total erasure of Kara’s independent stories. Now its all about liking Mon-El who is an absolutely horrible person. Are they forgetting the fact that he literally is still lying to everyone about his origins?

And please miss me with that ooc characterization of Alex. She would never fucking ditch Kara on her earth birthday, no matter which fucking concert is happening. She’d more likely go out with Kara and bring Maggie along. And she would NEVER ENCOURAGE KARA TO DATE A FUCKBOY WTF

And we all know what changed. I can’t say I’m surprised that moving to CW also meant bad plots and cliche straight-white romances but I’d like them to stop ruining this beautiful show.

i literally haven’t stopped thinking about Captain America once since 2011, like, am i in an exam? don’t matter im still thinking about Steve “i could do this all day” Rogers. am i at a family meal? well sorry grandma could you repeat that, i was thinking about Bucky “pick on someone your own size” Barnes. am i with friends? idk what’s happened for the last 20 minutes bc i was thinking about the longest and most tragic love story in Marvel’s history

not to sound like a whiny shipper but i literally see no reason why lapid0t would be chosen over amed0t. just about every time peridot and amethyst have interacted together they’ve had great chemistry and their personalities bounce off each other so well. when peridot hurt amethyst’s feelings in “too far”, she gave the most sincere and heartfelt apology she’s ever done.

lapis and peridot however….first of all lapis is a saint for putting up with peridot at all. if i was guilted into living with the person who imprisoned and interrogated me i would be absolutely livid. yes we, the audience, know peridot changed but why wasn’t lapis allowed to have some time to heal and forgive peridot on her own (if she chose to forgive her at all, like it would still be justified if she never forgave her). peridot didn’t even apologize in “barn mates”! she just kept pestering lapis over and over, and then lapis saved her from the ruby ship, and now they’re BFFs (and according to lauren, potential love interests)??? HUH???

Bts literally put their everything into what they do and give us their all. They go through so much and they try their best to make us happy, no matter how many nights they go without sleep or sometimes even food to do so, yet y'all don’t even have the decency to let them eat a meal in peace. We owe them so much, the least you could do is give them their privacy.

Someone pausing still frames of SU, intentionally gathering the least attractive ones and using it as Concrete Evidence that the show is “terrible” tells me one thing and one thing only:

-how much someone knows jackshit about animation because you can literally pause any piece of Western animation, no matter how highly regarded, and find “bad” or “funny looking” frames. it’s also easy to intentionally leave out all the good qualities of said show to fit your half-baked argument just because you don’t personally like it and need to make it look as bad as possible

following this logic, by default, I guess all these shows and movies are terrible too
