please reblog this if you’re pro-shaladin, or at least are not anti-shaladin. i need to know that there are more of us out there, shipping and multishipping and seeing shiro happy with his paladins. also i want more shaladin-positive blogs to follow.
Growing up, my parents would always tell me to be properly dressed around my brothers. Never mind that they were walking around in short boxer briefs, it was me who had to be presentable. I was the girl, after all.
In school, I was always taught that the way I dressed affected a boy’s education. I was taught that the slight peek of my shoulder was enough to get me sent to the head office. It was much too distracting, because after all, a boy’s education had to be more important than a girl’s. At least, that was what they were teaching me.
This is why I’m a feminist.
I’m a feminist because it is 2017, and when I talk about how unfair it is that a professional athlete gets to walk away from the accusation of raping a girl without a single ding to their career, I’m some sort of radical that needs to calm down. Because that poor girl’s life will never be the same, but said athlete’s career is perfectly intact.
I’m a feminist because my aunt says things like, “Oh, those feminists, they just need to shave their armpits and get over it.” Because somehow the grooming of my body hair has everything to do with the rights I’m fighting for.
I’m a feminist because people still think you must have a vagina to be considered a woman.
I’m a feminist because I am 20 years old, and when I tell people I’m not sure I want to have kids, they look at me like I just defied all womankind.
I’m a feminist because when mothers choose to work rather than stay at home with their children, they aren’t doing “enough.”
I’m a feminist because when fathers choose to stay at home with their children rather than work, they somehow aren’t as “manly.”
I’m a feminist because parents still won’t let their sons play with Barbies.
I’m a feminist because young boys are taught that crying is bad. Showing emotion is bad, better to bottle it up and never feel. If you cry, you’re a girl, and no one wants to be a girl.
I’m a feminist because when my family talks about the Women’s March that happened yesterday, they say things like, “What’s protesting going to change?” and “They’re honestly just wasting their time. Nobody’s going to listen to them.” Never mind that the country we are living in found its freedom through protesting—No Taxation Without Representation. But I suppose that’s okay. It was men protesting then.
I’m a feminist because when my aunt saw a picture of a man marching with women yesterday, she snorted and said, “What’s he doing there? Doesn’t he have something better to do?” Her seven year old son was sitting next to her.
I’m a feminist because a highly qualified politician lost the presidential election to a less than mediocre businessman who based his campaign on misogyny, racism, bigotry, and slander. Because this country would rather see an over privileged, racist, homophobic, white man, whose years of experience sums up to zero, in office rather than a woman whose qualifications are more than his will ever be. Because I somehow have to have years of experience before I can even get my first job, but Donald Trump can get sworn into office without a single day of political experience.
I’m a feminist because the President of the United States speaks vilely of women and all minorities, and I’m the terrible one for disliking him.
I’m a feminist because I get made fun of for being a feminist.
I’m a feminist because I want the next generation of girls to live in a better world than mine.
I’m a feminist for these reasons and so many others.
I’m sure many people know what #SaveBendy is by now. If not, then check this neato link here!
The TL:DR version is, kids are going around snagging art from people’s accounts and then talking shit about it on their Instagram. It’s extremely cringy to see a ton of little kids basically get mad at the fact that someone drew Bendy and Alice in a romantic setting.
It’s also extremely hilarious. But that’s just me.
But it seems these guys are trying to cause more trouble by personally hitting up ask blogs that aren’t “up to their standards”. That being if it’s shipping related, they think a certain Bendy isn’t good enough or is “cringy”. They have even been targeting NSFW ask blogs and harassing them as well.
It’s only been a short while since this has surfaced and I think it’s getting to the point where it’s not something I can exactly try to ignore.
As someone who has dealt with their fair share of people trying to control what I create, I completely understand the stress creators are dealing with right now.
There is a certain way people have been treating NSFW or suggestive stuff in this fandom that is incredibly silly in my opinion.
Now I’ve only had my ask blog for little over two weeks now, so I’m still extremely new to this fandom, but I think we should have a level of respect for one another. No one will change what they make because you yell at them.
If you don’t like a certain thing, you are entitled to blacklist/block the source.
You are not entitled to send hateful asks/IMs to someone cause you don’t like them.
You don’t like NSFW for BATIM?
Blacklist it! Download Xkit and have the proper tags on a list so Tumblr can hide it for you!
This whole #SaveBendy thing is the dumbest thing in the world. And I’ve been in some shitty fandoms.
If you think #SaveBendy is a valid thing that’s doing the right thing, then listen very closely kid.
GROW THE FUCK UP. THIS IS THE INTERNET. NO ONE OWES YOU A N Y T H I N G.
Don’t like that I have this opinion? Then please quietly exit stage left and tap that handy dandy “Unfollow” button on the way out.
guess it’s time for my first follow forever with this blog! :’) I could never imagine I would reach this milestone so fast, especially after remaking and turning my writing around. and even if numbers are not really that important, it is still heartwarming and incredibly touching to see 6,000 people giving me and my writing a (second) chance.
