* I (native German speaker) once had an hour-long discussion with my best friend (also a native German speaker) about whether you use a neutral or a masculine article for “Level”. You don’t understand WE WERE YELLING, WE NEARLY DESTROYED OUR FRIENDSHIP BC OF THIS. Then we looked it up. Turns out both are correct. I hate German.
Obviously I left out a lot of things like Pokémon names, trainer classes, items etc. because there’s just so many of them. I might do something like my top 10 German Pokémon names in the future tho.
If you feel like this post is missing something incredibly vital, feel free to tell me and I’ll add it!
(this is a repost from my old blog which I deleted so please please please don’t send me hatemail accusing me of stealing it)
Please stop hating on hetero pairing just because they don’t match up with your ship or because both parties involved appear to be heterosexual. One or both of the characters in the pairing could be bi or pan so calling it homophobia just because it’s a m/f pairing is wrong and for a lot of people who preach acceptance for all types of love except for hetero, hypocritical. Trust me, the latter isn’t that rare of a bird on tumblr. And if the pairing is straight then so what? Are you telling me that by having a straight m/f pairing, they are automatically an insult to every other type of romantic/platonic ship? That’s just ridiculous. If you don’t like the ship, okay, but don’t label it falsely and spread hate because you want to discourage/shame others from shipping it. How about spreading positivity towards something you do ship? After all you attract more flies with honey than vinegar.
