this is not meant to be offensive in any way

illumi genuinely wanted to protect killua but it ended up being unconventional. the tactics were undeniably abusive, but illumi managed to shy killua away from danger. he never really meant any harm to killua it just ended up that way.

also no offense, but chrollo and hisoka are a lot shittier than illumi. illumi’s assigned to kill meanwhile hisoka does it for pure enjoyment and chrollo committed mass genocide for whatever reason. to think illumi is the worst out of the trio is really fucking dumb lol.

people treat killua like he’s an absolute angel and he means no harm to anyone ever, that he’s pretty much fragile - which is the opposite of his character. he has his ruthless moments and is by no means weak or fragile, stop treating him that way.

not only that, but people tend to forget that illumi was raised to be cold-blooded with no value for human life. people tend to forget that, yes, illumi was abused too. he had to take care of his siblings as well, which makes things harder on his end.

i’m not gonna get into it anymore than that but this is pretty much the bottom line of things.

A Wand or a Weapon

I’ve noticed something recently that I really like about the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts universe, and the fandom itself.  In a lot of games, books, and fandoms, you find people who want lightsabers, gunblades, Keyblades, Hidden Blades, etc.  

These items are intrinsic parts of the universes and the stories, and hold personal meaning to each and every player, reader, or participant.  They’re wonderful.  But, you might notice that for the majority of these stories, the main key item is a weapon.

Very few books, games, or movies these days have a central, key item that isn’t meant to be a weapon first, and a tool second.  There are definite exceptions to this (i.e. the sonic screwdriver) but for the most part, a weapon is the most important thing a character can have.

In the world of J.K. Rowling, this isn’t the case.  It’s the wand that’s most important; an item that, although has the ability to do terrible, awful things, can just as equally be used to heal, create, and protect.  This is a tool given to young children and the first things they learn to master are levitation charms and useful functions; not ways to hurt another person or creature.  This item can only be used as a weapon if the wielder themselves decides to.

None of this is to say that other fandoms are in any way wrong for having weapons.  A lightsaber is meant to restore balance.  The Master Sword can only strike down evil.  A Keyblade can be used to save entire worlds and there are so many others that are just as fantastic.  

There’s so much to love about all of our favorite, meaningful items from these other series.  I simply adore the idea of the wand- a tool that can be made to create wonderful, beautiful things, and leave the rest up to the witch or wizard who owns it.

Unpopular Opinion Squad:

Just wanna risk-fully slam dunk my two cents into the Pewdiepie discourse. What he said was wrong, he did cross a line, BUT he did ACKNOWLEDGE it and APOLOGIZED. If you watch his response video you will be able to tell clear as day that he is in no way anti-Semitic. The media is known to twist things so its no surprise that they jumped onto the big rich and popular youtuber when he said some dumb things, spreading it like wild fire. If you guys actually looked into ANYTHING he actually said or any of his actions you can tell it was a dumb joke meant to see how far the modern world will go. Yes it was offensive, but a joke nonetheless for an experiment.
Now does that mean this should go without consequences? Well no, loose some subscribers maybe. However I think The WSJ jumping in and the affect they had which led to canceling his show and breaking ties with Disney went way too far. This man makes a living, trying to entertain 53 MILLION people, someone is bound to get offended and blow things WAY out of proportion. So much that no one is even going to mention all the good Felix has done. The good which DEPENDS on his viewer interface and partnerships and the media ruined it.
At first I was a little disappointed; not because I thought he meant it but because he should know better. I remember watching the video when it came out and as soon as those guys unraveled that sign I just KNEW this was gonna be a shit storm. People should realize that he did not think they were really going to do it. Should he had still included it in the video? This is where the disappointment comes in.
Yes he could have cut everything out, but he didn’t and it happened and we just need to learn to not take it out of proportion. HE WILL LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES, and his mistake; making a down right stupid joke for an experiment. He didn’t advocate for hate, he doesn’t participate in rallies, heil Hitler, etc. HE. MADE. A. STUPID. JOKE. TO. PROVE. A. POINT.
Now onto another thing, Markiplier briefly brought up in his latest “Respect” video. Pewdiepie is a person, FELIX IS A PERSON. To briefly sum it up; people have labeled him because of these jokes that he’s made, but no matter the labels anyone has put on us we still need to respect one another, even Felix. Now who knows Felix better than Mark, Jack and all the other youtubers? Besides his friends (mostly youtubers) and his family, NO ONE. What you guys see is what the media drags out and what he posts. 
I have made this long enough so I will stop here but I want to reiterate; FELIX FUCKED UP BUT HE OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T ADVOCATE HATE. HE APOLOGIZED NOW LETS ALL MOVE ON AND HOPEFULLY HE’LL BE MORE CAREFUL NEXT TIME. Hes already lost more than what it was really worth.

 If any of this is a problem for you just ignore me and keep scrolling.

anonymous asked:

Why don't you make wlw or mlm content ? Because I'd rather not follow you if you don't like people like me. This is not a message of hate, I just like to know that 100% of the people in my dash, whatever their orientation or identity, are supportive of my kind, even if they're not making explicit LGBTQ content (which is perfectly their right btw, it does not make them homophobes in any way). Hope you answer because it's important to me.

Hi, Anon. 

Whether you unfollow or choose to continue following me is your right completely. I appreciate the civility and kindness in which this Ask was written. I would also like to clarify that nothing I say or post is meant to be offensive or hateful to anyone whatsoever. I’m going to be completely honest, but this is also meant to be as kind as possible. 

I’m going to be frank. I am a Christian. 

Now, if you chose to continue reading, thank you. Because I’m quite sure this is as important to me as it is to you. One of the reasons this answer took so long was me making sure my point came across. 

I have nothing against anyone. Everyone is a human being, and they deserve the respect that is due to them. However, I don’t agree with the lgbt lifestyle.

I will not treat anyone differently, but I don’t feel comfortable making mlm or wlw content. 

Whether you follow me or not is your choice. I won’t be upset if you choose to unfollow. 

Thank you for being kind.

There are seven known forms of lightsaber combat. Shii-Cho is the most rudimentary form developed by the Jedi Order, establishing basic motions. Makashi is a graceful style that has become common in duels with the Sith. Soresu, or Way of the Mynock, is meant to be used in close-quarter fighting. Ataru is an acrobatic style best suited for open spaces. Shien, or Djem So, allows a Jedi to deflect blaster fire back at a foe, turning defense into offense. Niman, or Way of the Rancor, is a hybrid martial art that effectively combines elements of the preceding lightsaber forms into a single, generalized form; Niman balances out between the various specializations of the other forms, resulting in a style that lacks advantage, but also lacks any serious drawbacks. Finally, Juyo, or Vaapad, is the most aggressive and unpredictable form, earning the nickname “Ferocity Form.” Because of this, it is generally favored by users of the dark side of the Force, though it is practiced by Jedi as well. The form focuses on offense and has no defensive qualities. However, this is compensated by the speed of the wielder or his/her blade being double-sided.

anonymous asked:

I can't help but think Marika is being given a harder time for what she said than what she deserves. it's just a sentence, in which she explains later in the interview that it means passionate, no bad connotations. Also, I think, and I'm just talking for myself, that if you guys knew her family story, and how they ended up as political refugees, you'd know she in no way meant any harm with those words, and that she is most likely to be a supporter than a asshole. Anyway, happy grey's day!

I think her twitter response about it was what got me. People obviously took offense. So if you bother to respond about it don’t say you are just nitpicking because you don’t like my character. Just say sorry that’s not what i meant. Or don’t respond. Responding brings more attention.

Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner apologize for their derogatory Black Widow jokes

UPDATE: Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have both issued statements regarding the below interview, expressing their regret for the comments made…

“Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America,” Evans said in a statement provided to EW. “We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”

“I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone,” Renner also said in a statement provided to EW. “It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.”

actual apology vs non apology

“Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America … We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.” – Chris Evans, on calling Black Widow a slut/whore 

“I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone … It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.” –Jeremy Renner, on calling Black Widow a slut/whore 

Chris Evans acknowledged that what he did was wrong, and expressed sincere regret. 

Jeremy Renner placed the blame on the people he “offended” and tried to excuse (he was “exhausted”) and minimize (”it’s just a fictional character!!!”) his actions.

“Peter?” you rolled over onto your stomach to look at him. 

“MmHm?” He mumbled engrossed in his collection of old broken electronics that crowded his desk. You were laying across from him on his bed finishing your math math homework while he worked away on all of his gadgets.

“You got the tickets right?” You questioned him skeptically.

“Ya ya of course.” He didn’t even look up from his work, he was totally distracted. 

“Good-” You rolled back over onto your back staring up at the ceiling, “because I already booked the dinner reservation and-”

“Wait,” Peter spun around in his chair, “what tickets?”

“You better be joking.” You were sitting now crossing your arms and looking right at him. He flashed you a weak smile, he wasn’t joking. “The Prom tickets Peter,” you moaned. “Remember when I texted you last week and this week that you were supposed to pick them up?”

“No…” He said nervously. You stood up from the bed and grabbed your phone of his night stand, “please don’t be mad (Y/N), we can still go to a nice dinner and-”

“Oh I’m more than mad” you turned giving him a smirk, “you know what this means.” He eyed your phone suspiciously and then noticed you swinging your head phones in your opposite hand. 

“(Y/N) no, don’t do this.” Peter was laughing now and so were you.

“SWEATSHIRT TIME!” You yelled and jumped across the bed at him. You had the song turned up full blast and could hear the very auto tuned music pouring out. “You could wear my Sweatshiirrtt” you sang along horribly off key, chasing Peter around his room with the headphones. 

“Oh god make it stop.” He covered his ears with a smile. You stood across from him, just his bed diving you two. “Okay, I surrender.” He raised his hands in defeat. You held out the phone so he could finish listening to the song, smiling in triumph. 

“Phsyc!” He suddenly exclaimed and shot webbing from his wrist to pin back your hand. 

“Hey,” you squinted at him, “that’s cheating.” He laughed at you pouting and reclined back nonchalantly on his bed.

“I guess I could cut you loose if you promise to turn that off.” He said with a shrug, smiling innocently at you.

“Fine.” You rolled your eyes, but you were grinning. He cut the webbing from your wrist and pulled you onto the bed with him. You rested against his chest. “I honestly don’t know why you hate that song so much, it’s real quality music.” You smiled. 

“Ya, so good.” He said sarcastically kissing your forehead with a loud laugh.

Could you take on the Yogscast in a fight?

(This list is intended for comedic purposes only and no comments on any of the members of the Yogscast are meant to be offensive in any way.)

Lewis: Most likely. He’ll be a tough one, but with enough determination you could beat him.
Simon: You could, but you’d have the rest of the Yogscast to contend with once you win. Come prepared to fight for a long time.
Duncan: Probably not. He is tall and likely mad and probably has weapons but if you catch him by surprise you might be able to win.
Hannah: No. Definitely not. Abort mission. Hannah is a badass with muscles and weapons and she is Batman and she might kill you or at least break a few bones.
Sjin: What are you a monster? Sjin may be tall but he is an absolute fucking nerd, if you trying to fight him it will break you emotionally. You might be able to beat him, but at what cost?
Sips: You can try but he is snarky and sarcastic as hell. By the end of it you probably wont even remember why you were fighting him at all.
Rythian: He is tall and mysterious and magical and Swedish he will definitely win within a minute or less.
Kim: Highly unlikely. Sure, she’s short, but she’s feisty as hell and if she doesn’t scare the living shit out of you within 30 seconds of starting then she will reasonably beat you.
Turps: Oh, definitely, as long as you have the element of surprise. Go kick his ass before he notices you. If he does, leave the area immediately, and take all the weapons with you.
Zoey: WHO ARE YOU AND WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HURT THIS PRECIOUS ANGEL?! You cannot even challenge Zoey let alone fight her. Plus, you’d have her macho girlfriend to contend with.
Fiona: Speaking of her, do not fight Fiona. She is powerful, she packs the muscle, she will destroy you.
Trott: Alone, he’s tough but he’ll fall eventually.
Ross: Alone, you can probably take him on if you distract him with something. Otherwise, not recommended.
Smith: Alone, he’s pretty damn tall and could probably have you pinned in a matter of seconds. Highly recommended you not try to tackle him yourself.
Hat Films (all 3 together): Run. Run far away, child.

Reciprocate

“Does this mean we’re friends now?”

Shouto was confused. Typically when one exchanges phone number with another, it meant trust and, consequently, friendship. Has it not always been this way? Shouto was positive that was exactly what it meant.

The feeling of confusion must have shown on his face as Midoriya began to flush and stammer.

“I — I didn’t mean to offend you, or anything,” Midoriya choked, hiding his face behind an arm. “I just… I think I just wanted to make sure.”

Shouto understood. Midoriya seemed to be the type of person that was very careful of his interactions with other people, so gauging the interests of the other person involved was a reasonable excuse to ask. It wasn’t offensive by any means, though, and Shouto knew he himself wasn’t the friendly type in the first place.

“No offense taken,” Shouto spoke up before Midoriya had the wrong idea. “And… don’t hide your face.”

Midoriya quickly dropped his arms against his sides.

“It’s convenient to have everyone’s number,” Shouto explained, his eyes focused on his phone screen as he composed a message. “You never know when you might need to contact someone.”

“That’s true.” There was a sigh.

“It’s also a good idea to get the teachers’ numbers too,” Shouto continued as he pressed the send button. He looked back up to see Midoriya staring at the ground.

“I do have at least All Might’s number, and Aizawa-sensei’s too…” Midoriya mumbled before his attention was caught by his phone notification.

“You better start getting everybody’s number then,” Shouto suggested before turning around to leave and just as Midoriya was about to unlock his phone screen. After all, Shouto already knew what the notification was about, and for some reason he didn’t want to stay there to see Midoriya’s reaction.

Shouto’s fingers were still shaking from typing — yes, we’re friends now.

Why the Cross?

The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
—1 Corinthians 1:18
A true story was reported about a couple visiting a jewelry store. As the jeweler showed them various crosses, the woman commented, “I like these, but do you have any without this little man on them?”

That is what so many people want today: a cross without Jesus. They want a cross without any offense. But if we could travel back in time and see the cross in its original context, we would realize that it was a bloody and vile symbol.

The Romans chose crucifixion because it was meant to be a slow, torturous way to die. It was designed to humiliate a person.

If there had been any other way, do you think that God would have allowed His Son to suffer like this? If there had been any other way we could have been forgiven, then God surely would have found it. If living a good moral life would get us to heaven, then Jesus never would have died for us. But He did — because there was and is no other way. He had to pay the price for our sin. At the cross, Jesus purchased the salvation of the world.

If you ever were tempted to doubt God’s love for you, even for a moment, then take a long, hard look at the cross.

i really love people who politely approach me after they’ve found something i’ve said or done offensive and ask me to explain further instead of screaming and jumping to the conclusion that i meant harm in any way towards anyone.

because 9/10 times i don’t. i just word things badly or do things without thinking. i promise.

lmao remember when the flash casted jay, jesse and wally and we or at least me actually thought that there would be other hero speedsters besides barry by the end of season 2 bUT TURNS OUT 

  • jay lost his speed before his introduction and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get it back any time soon. not only that, but he’s not even given much to do. they let him mentor barry for like an episode or two until harrison wells came in and got handed that role, so jay’s either completely absent or, when he is around, is there to complain about not being much help without his speed ajkfjkfjkfjkfj this is such an offensive way to write his character. he’s meant to be the original flash!! the grandfather of the flash family!! gdi 
  • jesse chambers is now jesse wells apparently, doesn’t have her speed yet and what’s royally pissing me off is that she’s been damseled since her introduction eight or so episodes ago. she’s literally not been given anything what-so-ever to do. she exists purely for harrison wells angst. what the fuck????? she’s a major speedster?? actually the most featured female speedster in dc comics?? been a part of the titans, jla and the jsa??? WHAT THE FUCK???? why do these writers continuously prioritize their oc over major comic canon characters  
  • wally west is amazing so far, but they’ve outright said that they currently have no plans of him becoming kid flash. it’ll probably happen eventually, but, like, season 3 or 4 eventually. 

even arrow had sara lance by now, at least?? I am so completely BORED with barry as the sole speedster hero on this show, honestly. so fucking BORED. I get taking your time with wally, but jesse and certainly jay should’ve been running around with barry by now 

Oh some people think Cas was uncaring of Dean in The Hunter Games?

I don’t think so. 

I see the thinking -

Calling Dean an ‘extremely messed up human’ was a) Cas being matter-of-fact honest, as he is wont to do (eg. “Sam, of course, is an abomination”) and b) somewhat mimicking the way Sam and Dean talk to each other, I thought? In any case it wasn’t meant unkindly and wasn’t TAKEN with offense. I actually LOVE that exchange, because it was Cas being PART OF THE FAMILY, imo :)

Asking Dean to talk to Claire when Dean was clearly struggling with his own issues was in my mind a) just ASKING and NOT PUSHING, simply because the issue of Claire had naturally come up in conversation - remember Sam brought up Claire NOT Cas, Cas was 100% focused on discussing ways to deal with the Mark and how he wasn’t happy at the thought of involving Crowley up until that change in conversation and b) I think there’s possibly a case to be made that Cas, on the spur of the moment, was thinking it might prove a helpful DISTRACTION for Dean - that instead of stewing at the bunker fretting about the Mark and getting riled up by Metatron, Dean could get out, get some fresh air, and put his focus elsewhere for a while.

Not giving Dean any show of comfort/sympathy when they rushed in to pull him off Metatron and instead seeming to care more about getting Metatron back to Heaven - well a) Sam had Dean covered, so Cas could well have thought that it was better to let Dean’s brother provide emotional support - he could well think that his emotional bond with Dean is not helpful or v. strong or important to Dean esp. in comparison to Dean’s bond with his brother and b) Cas’ loyalties were DIVIDED there, because he had promised his angel friend Metatron would be returned UNHARMED and if not SHE WOULD BE IN TROUBLE - so naturally he would have been fretting about his other friend as well as Dean, thus leaving him distracted by needing to determine how badly Metatron was hurt (he could have been on the verge of dying at that point for all they knew). I don’t think Cas was UNsympathetic or unkind towards Dean in that moment, he was just focusing on the practical (perhaps partly because that was easier to focus on than the heavy emotional aspect of seeing Dean being overpowered by bloodlust).

For me the episode very strongly established how DEEPLY Cas DOES care about Dean! The risk of taking Metatron from Heaven for him ALONE shows that!

If Cas maybe didn’t verbalise his care (LOVE) very well at every possible opportunity, well that’s just a typical thing of our boys isn’t it? Difficulty dealing with and expressing their feelings yadda yadda yadda :p
