(Putting a screenshot instead of responding to the ask directly cause I don’t want people to have to see it in the k/l tag) 

Ok so, a few things about this–it’s definitely not a sole kl/ance fan thing. It’s not. There are plenty of kl fans who aren’t antis and others who are multishippers and so on. As for the more pressing matter here, I don’t think it’s funny. I find it very upsetting. Pedophilia is an incredibly serious real life issue that harms so many children. And people throwing that term around without knowing what it means makes me sick. 

Even after the guidebook came out (which yes, does count as official, and does have accurate ages since we got the info directly from the TV Bible–Lauren and Joaquim’s words, not mine) people were still calling sheith that??? Just because?? They personally didn’t like it?? Even though we know Keith has been 18 since the start of the series, and is now either 19 or older. 

You can be uncomfortable with the ship–and other “shaladin” ships–but don’t pretend you actually care about some abstract moral high ground here if you’re harassing the staff, the fans, or trivializing very serious real world issues. Some shit’s happened to me personally as a child and I have never been triggered by shipping the fictional ships I do, but you know what? There was an anti who tried to tell me sheith was pedophilia and I was harming CSA survivors, and that was triggering for me. I literally had a breakdown because the memory came rushing right back and it made me physically sick. 


Here is the thing–I don’t like to wear yellow. Yellow is sunshine and happiness and dandelions and it’s the color of my shirt when the fabric is fisted in his hands and I’m thrown on the ground. I was 13. I still don’t like wearing yellow. Someone tried to give me a morality lecture, and I had to relive that. But I didn’t say anything, you know? I don’t interact when things like that happen. I wondered though. I wondered how anyone could claim to be so morally righteous while harming actual victims of child abuse. 

But then I realized they were only a kid, and it kinda made sense. I think a lot of antis are just like…well intentioned, but also younger and impressionable, so if they hear This is what’s right, they go along with it. Lance and Keith being together in the way I’ve seen a lot of antis imagine is actually a minor and adult relationship while sheith is not. So I mean…there is a certain degree of bias there. A lot of it is a ship war with excuses about morality. But I also feel like there are a good number of antis who are well intentioned and just don’t understand when they harm real life people. Still not an excuse for that kind of behavior, but I like to think they’ll come around in time, you know? We’re seriously at the point where the staff has had to tell fans to be kinder, and it’s sad really.

(For those who don’t know, I got an ask this morning saying, “Why can’t we study the Bible all together?” So. That’s what we’re doing!  I’m just starting Romans today (Monday, July 24) so, honestly, whoever wants in for that one, feel free to join! I’m doing the She Reads Truth 6 week study (and am meeting with friends in person once a week). I believe you can do it either through the app or the workbook. Or, if you just want to read along, I can post the readings and discussion questions from the book once a week or so on here.)

I’m using the tag 2017 Romans Study, so feel free to tag anything related to this with that so we can all find posts a little easier. :)

Comment on/reblog this post and/or message me and let me know if you want to be added to this list!

Let's make a fanfiction Bible

We’re going for a reblog train here. Name one or two of your favourite fandom for our “books” and then a few of your favourite fics in them for our “scriptures” as we work together to make our bible. Heaven knows we’ve got enough passion for this stuff that it might as well be our religion (Ravenclaw Logic lol).

Pre-War Senate

“Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons!”

That’s all that it has been about. Sure we got stories with characters and this happens on earth and everything that, but for so long the background has been just that. Megatron leads the Decepticons, Megatron is a tyrant, Optimus Prime leads the Autobots to fight the Decepticons, to fight for freedom for all sentient beings.

I will admit that the only continuities I know of is G1, Animated, Aligned and IDW. Maybe Dreamwave had some background, maybe did the Unicron Trilogy, but it feels for me that it wasn’t until Aligned and IDW that the focus went from the current war towards how it did start. We got Megatron Origins, a miniseries that was first intended to be part of the Dreamwave comics but when that went under it was picked up by IDW some time into IDW’s run.

Then we got the Binder of Revelations, Aligned’s Pitch Bible which did go into the background of Cybertron and background of Megatron and Optimus Prime. A detailed look into what made the world of Transformers for the Aligned continuity. And then lastly we got James Roberts’s work in MTMTE and the first Transformers Ongoing’s Chaos Theory.

And because I can’t really resist I’ll go into James Roberts’ pre-war Era, focusing on the Senate that partially created the situation that paved the grounds for Megatron and the war.

One thing that everyone manages to associate the Senate with is the rampant Functionism. And it starts at the beginning.

Nova Major, after all the Primes were gone, except Alpha Trion, worked with Alpha Trion and Galvatron to create a new government in Cybertron. He put him as the leader of Cybertron with everyone following him. No longer there were Thirteen Primes that split Cybertron into different groups, but only one Prime. And Nova Prime, using the Creation Matrix as a symbol of the Primes, set himself as that leader. And he had ideas on how Cybertron should be ruled.

The Senate might have come a bit later, where Nova wouldn’t be able to handle all the day-to-day of ruling Cybertron. He would have chosen those that he deemed worthy of ruling, not one of those beastformers or any others that would not be fit to rule according to Nova Prime. That would be the basis of the Cybertronian Senate.

Nova Prime, not wanting to stop at Cybertron but also wanted to spread the Cybertronian race to the stars, took critical decisions to accomplish that. But one of those decisions was the construction of the First Ark, which took him and his band of close friends and followers to the Dead Universe, leaving Cybertron without a Prime to rule them.

Nominus Prime is the one that comes in Nova’s stead. But he is barely a footnote in the history of Cybertron, despite the fact that he ruled for a while. What changed?

The fact is that the Senate gained in power after Nova’s disappearance. Maybe they were without a Prime for a while as they were waiting for Nova’s return, maybe Nominus Prime was weak-willed. But the Senate gained in power, maybe this was when the Cog was formed, but the position of a Prime weakened, leaving Nominus to be a figurehead. What is known is that Functionism grew in that era, most likely to make sure that the “appropriate” people were left in charge.

If Nova Prime hadn’t disappeared the problem wouldn’t have developed. As Nova Prime disappeared so did the interest in expanding to the stars. But the Cybertronian race continued to grow. Extravagant style became the norm, and the energy of Vector Sigma is seemingly endless. Senator Shockwave noticed the problem that would come to this but no one listened. No one cared for the truth because it was inconvenient, because it was dangerous. It was a long time ago that the Senate stopped serving the people of Cybertron and began serving themselves.

But even though they kept denying what was happening, it didn’t mean that things were going unnoticed by others. It isn’t exactly easy for a miner to see the growing energy crisis, but he sees the unrest in society, he sees the unfairness of it all as bots like him receive less fuel and face the fact that there is no upwards mobility for someone like him.

And that does not go unnoticed by those who want to keep things as they are. The Senate does everything it can to make sure that people are happy where they are. Functionism becomes a tool to reassure the people that they got a place in society, because even when they don’t have a favorable place in it they’re still part of society in whole and there is no need to start ask questions.

And those that persist in asking questions, well…

There are other methods to control them.

Proteus was a big player behind the Pre-war Senate. He was among the most pro-active members of the Senate, ready to take the big decisions and take responsibility for them. In a bid to gain the Power of the Matrix of Leadership he attacked Nominus Prime with the help of Sentinel, the head of security, and then staged it to look like an Terrorist attack, framing the anti-Functionist Triple M faction. But as the Matrix was proven false Proteus arranged it so that Nominus Prime was killed so he could put his own pawn, Sentinel, as the Prime, for him to command and control.

Proteus was the one who really started the second Civil War of Cybertron. He issued the clampdown, he launched the Deception Registration Act, he probably issued the order to brainwash Megatron. His quest for power and his pro-active ways to keep the Senate in power caused severe ripple among the population of Cybertron, one that enabled Megatron to be heard by others and others agreeing with him as they were suffering from the opression of the Senate.

The Tyrant is dead. Long live the Tyrant.

Sentinel Prime was however always a puppet. He didn’t last long and Proteus controlled him. All the control Sentinel had was to make his own Elite Guards that he commanded, not the Senate and not Proteus. He chased down annoying rebels that barely got the attention of the Senate itself. And when the Senate fell he fell in turn, arrogant and believing his own hype which was his downfall.

Zeta comes then forwards, one of those modified by Shockwave to carry the Matrix. He had his eyes set on the price for a long time, and Orion Pax was nothing but a tool in his hands to get him the title of Prime. Zeta Prime manipulated Orion Pax and his outlier pack to be tools of terror, annoying the Senate, especially as they fought for the Hot Spot. While the Hot Spot was in the shape of a hand, and it could have been used as Functionist proof, those that wanted to take over wanted to experiment on the hot spot to create Outliers, which is not a Functionist agenda.

Zeta simply saw the opportunity to use Orion Pax to harass the senate, driving his own agenda through. And then finally, after getting more power and influence within the senate, he “stopped” Orion Pax and his gang, handing them over to Sentinel Prime to be part of the Autobot Security Services. Orion Pax and Trailbreaker were in the Autobot Security Services during the events of Megatron Origins.

When Zeta became Prime after Sentinel’s death it was more of a military takeover than anything. He began to aggressively recruit Autobots to make sure that the Decepticons didn’t have that many people among them. He also gave more rights to the disposable class so that the Decepticons lost even more followers and it undermined the message of the Decepticons. While he did rebuild the Senate he elevated the position of Prime back to how it was when Nova Prime was still around.

But power corrupts, and it was Zeta’s downfall. He was much more effective dictator than Sentinel or Proteus was, but Megatron was better. Zeta had to fight the energon crisis that was in full swing and he had to fight the Decepticons at the same time.

The Senate before the war behaved arrogantly, disregarded those that they were supposed to serve and only served their own and their own agenda. The responsibility are on them. Megatron would have always voiced his discontent with the system, but what could have adverted what happened is if the Senate had listened, acknowledged the flaws in the system and the growing energon crisis. But that never happened, and thus the Autobot/Decepticon war began and continues to rage on.

Dan Savage on bible-based persecution of the LGBTQIA+ community

“The Bible. We’ll just talk about the Bible for a second. People often point out that they can’t help it – they can’t help with the anti-gay bullying, because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans, that being gay is wrong.

We can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people. The same way, the same way we have learned to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation. We ignore bulls**t in the Bible about all sorts of things. The Bible is a radically pro-slavery document. Slave owners waved Bibles over their heads during the Civil War and justified it. The shortest book in the New Testament is a letter from Paul to a Christian slave owner about owning his Christian slave. And Paul doesn’t say “Christians don’t own people” Paul talks about how Christians own people. 

We ignore what the Bible says about slavery, because the Bible got slavery wrong. Tim – uh, Sam Harris, in A Letter To A Christian Nation, points out that the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery. What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? One hundred percent. 

The Bible says that if your daughter’s not a virgin on her wedding night – if a woman isn’t a virgin on her wedding night, she shall be dragged to her father’s doorstep and stoned to death. Callista Gingrich lives. And there is no effort to amend state constitutions to make it legal to stone women to death on their wedding night if they’re not virgins. At least not yet. We don’t know where the GOP is going these days.

People are dying because people can’t clear this one last hurdle. They can’t get past this one last thing in the Bible about homosexuality. 

[Addressing religious students who had walked out during the previous portion of the speech] Um, one other thing I wanna talk about is – [chuckles] – so, you can tell the Bible guys in the hall that they can come back now, because I’m done beating up the Bible. It’s funny, as someone who’s on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible, how pansy-assed some people react when you push back. 

I apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings. But. I have a right to defend myself. And to point out the hypocrisy of people who justify anti-gay bigotry by pointing to the Bible, and insisting we must live by the code of Leviticus on this one issue and no other.”

My twin sister made a post on Facebook yesterday about marriage equality and how amazing it is that our country made this big of a leap towards equality overall but then my aunt commented about how she doesn’t agree and that she thinks we should read the bible. After several of our friends got involved and a long thread later, the bitch finally stopped harassing my sister. It’s fucking ridiculous that a 47 year old woman (she actually pointed out the age difference between my sister and herself thinking it was a valid argument) thinks she’s entitled to bring down our reason to celebrate yesterday with her bible pushing logic. She was harassing a minor but my parents and her think it was for good reason. Like and reblog this if you think she crossed a line when she decided to tear apart that post with her hate. I’ll show the notes to my family to prove them wrong.

Phil Robertson’s sick rape & mutilation fantasy is what's wrong with fundamentalist Christians.

Two guys break into an atheist’s home. He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters.  Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him.  And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot ‘em and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And then they can look at him and say, 'Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’

Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, 'Wouldn’t it be something if this was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day.’ If it happened to them, they probably would say, 'Something about this just ain’t right.’

Right, because fear of eternal retribution is the only reason for morality.

We as the church today should be uncomfortable with the fact that the people of the Bible got experiences with the living God, and we get… well… the Bible. We must admit either that God shows favoritism to an elite group or that we as a people must do better to position ourselves for His deeper work in our lives.

And I know what many of you are thinking, and you’re right, the Bible alone carries the word of God and is in itself an experience with Him, but that initial experience should lead us into a life of faith causing us to live something greater than ourselves and hidden in the impossible. For our scriptures teach us that faith comes from hearing and hearing from His word. The bible should be the beginning of our journey not the destination. It should awaken us to what’s possible, and not comfort us despite what’s not.
