weird pride

anonymous asked:

Hcs on Eren, Armin, Levi, and Jean being asked to meet their s/o's parents? Like they come up to them and tell them their parents have been dying to meet them? Thank you!

Eren:

  • His mood is a weird mixture of pride and excitement, since their parents seem to really want to meet him and that makes the relationship he has with his s/o super important, but he’s also really fucking nervous.
  • He’s not as talkative as usual, in fact, he holds back so much, that anyone from 100 miles away can sense how tense he is.
  • Hesitant to start a conversation, so he waits for the perfect opportunity to talk about a topic that seems interesting enough to their parents and him to show off.
  • Who would’ve known he could be so damn polite around others. He’s still nearly shaking as he tries hard though.
  • He’s scared to do so at first, but eventually, in case they ask about their relationship for example, Eren grabs onto his s/o’s hand firmly to make them understand how important they are to him.

Armin:

  • He’s a little nervous, but not as much as Eren. He’s just overall shy, so him being nervous around others isn’t anything new to him. Just knowing that kind of has him relax a little more.
  • When his s/o asks him to meet their parents, he’s most of all flustered. What does that make them? It’s like a giant step in their relationship, but he likes the idea a lot!
  • Surprisingly, Armin is really good when it comes to keeping the conversation going. There’s no awkward silences, because he knows which questions to ask or which prompts to pull.
  • Afterwards he can honestly tell his s/o that he’s glad he got to meet their parents. He’s going to confess to them though that he feels bad about not being able to do the same.

Levi:

  • He’s not too fond of the idea, honestly. Depending on how important it would be for his s/o, he might agree to like one dinner with them or something. His opinion still stands though, he’s busy and has more than enough to do already.
  • Generally, he doesn’t care much about what others think of him as long as he’s able to get by, there’s no need for him to impress others or anything. It’s pretty much the same for his s/o’s parents.
  • He doesn’t really see the point in having to pretend to be someone he’s not and for the most part stays true to himself. Common sense tells him to at least draw back on the curse words though.
  • He’s just not going to be too talkative. It’s natural for him to be rather quiet in the first place.

Jean:

  • Super flustered. Keeps asking “really? are you sure?!” over and over again. He can’t really believe it. To him this is really exciting news and he almost starts jumping around like a 5 year old.
  • He’s calm on the outside though, I mean, as calm as possible. Compared to his heart beating so damn loud and quickly, he’s super calm on the outside.
  • Jean is going to be worried their parents might not like him too much, so he tries his best to impress them in any way possible and acts like the good-two-shoes boy next door, helps them with anything he can and is polite as always.
  • I’ll bet $10 he’s going to adress their parents with “Sir” and/or “Ma’am”

Shitty befriends every single player on the Boston Pride.

It happens because he goes to almost every single one of their home games and as we know Shitty is really loud. The players start to recognize him and they all slowly start talking to him. Just a little, they all know his name and that he goes to Harvard, but nothing else.

And eventually Shitty brings Jack Zimmerman with him to a game. And obviously they get invited into the locker room and Jack tries to introduce Shitty to them but their all like “yeah we know him.”

Later on Shitty becomes every single players lawyer.

Humans Are Weird (Pride)

Another « humans are weird » thing! So, what if humans are known throughout the universe for being extremely prideful and stubborn. Of course, all aliens have some self-esteem, dignity and will defend their opinion, but humans just bring it to another level. Like, imagine something broke on the spaceship, but the mechanic is really busy and they can’t fix it before a good hour. One of the humans aboard just goes “Don’t worry, I’ll fix it!”, tries to repair the broken part and will not accept ANY help because he can “do it by himself”.
After 3 hours of work
Alien: hum…Human-Thomas, you can get out of here now. The mechanic finished his previous job 2 hours ago, he’ll take care of it.
Human: Then tell him *pulling on something* urg…to work on something else! *trying to grab the hammer* I can totally handle this alone*stands up and hits his head on a pipe* ow!
Alien: Human-Thomas I think I would be wiser to let the mec-
Human: I CAN DO THIS!!!!!

Shoutout to the aromantics who don’t hate being aro. Shoutout to the aros who were happy, not devastated, when they found out they were aro. Shoutout to aros who felt relief, not sadness and mourning, when they realized they didn’t have to keep forcing crushes and getting into uncomfortable romantic relationships anymore because they finally discovered that romance wasn’t the only option. Shoutout to the aros who like their orientation and wouldn’t change it if they were given the choice, despite even the “accepting” communities assuming that they must be miserable and that they must wish they weren’t aro. Shoutout all the aros who don’t fit the narrative of self-loathing misery and never see themselves represented because no one ever talks about aros who are happy with themselves and like their orientation.

Listen. I’m not saying that “being kinky makes you queer.” I’m not saying that Straight people who are Into Weird Sex* belong in Pride or deserve a seat at our tables. Try putting your pitchforks down for a second and listening to what I’m actually saying, which is this:

BDSM, first and foremost, was and is an outlet for queer expression. Just as much as any music scene or art movement could be, this is our cultural inheritance. We built this. It’s ours. And neither am I saying that that means that LGBT+ people who aren’t kinky are somehow ~less queer,~ that’s ludicrous, but what I do think is that we all have a little responsibility toward it, to afford it a degree of respect, to set aside our reactionary impulses and stop scrubbing kink out of the queer spaces where any other queer expression should rightfully belong.

All of our time would be better spent, if we really do care about preserving and celebrating queer culture, by challenging the Straight people who find themselves in the scene and holding them accountable, making sure that they engage with this culture of ours respectfully and on our terms. And if you can’t do that, then at least have the decency to not do anything, because this actively pushing kink out to the margins is what made it vulnerable to Straight tourism in the first place. What you’re doing created the problem, and doing it more is going to make it worse, not solve it. Please.

* You know where the idea that BDSM is all Just About Weird Sex came from? It’s because it was gay. Like, super gay. And back in the day, everything that was gay was Just About Weird Sex. That thing where two men holding hands is Too Adult for children to witness? That thing where gay people Don’t Have Feelings, They’re Just Sexual Deviants? That was all the same thing, and the reason that perception of BDSM persists while other queer people are making gains is because respectability politicians made a scapegoat of it. “We’re not sexual deviants, they are. Attack those other queer people, instead.” That’s the tradition you’re choosing to carry on. You’ll forgive me for not being here for it.

since i’ve watched it a million times, here’s my personal list of highlights from seeso’s first MBMBaM episode Tarantulas & Travis Did A Hit:

  • the intro theme making me cry with pride and weird nostalgia
  • the titular hit being unscripted but turning it into an Overarching Plot Point anyway
  • “one time i saw a rancho molt its skin and my eyes went to hell.”
  • the endearing second-hand embarrassment awkwardness of three extremely socially anxious boys attempting to interact with ppl
  • justin giggling uncontrollably at his own jokes before he finishes them
  • “Eight legs of justice.”
  • travis apparently being unable to decide between red or blue nail polish for the show so por que no los dos?
  • “my name is………. zach” “no, hang up.” “you did so bad.”
  • justin had absolutely no reason to make up a fake name, he just panicked, and he’s my hero.
  • griffin being Peak Little Brother and immediately telling on travis to their dad for hitting justin
  • justin being Peak Big Brother and both antagonizing his brothers but also assuring them spiders aren’t that scary
  • griffin and justin on either side of travis, holding his arms reassuringly and talking him through his Spider Exposure Therapy.
  • “this is the most dangerous spider in the world-” travis: *fucking sprints out of the room*
  • WHY DID YOU BRING IT, MARK
  • Hey everybody, welcome to the club! Hope you enjoy the experience of simply cybersex blast off into cybersex Joe Biden.
  • griffin laughing really hard and leaning into travis’s arm. cute bros.
  • “ah, local teens!” “look at all those thought influencers!”
  • monster factory reference. A+ pls continue crossing the mcelroy empire streams.
  • “end of the parade!” “now go home! it’s important you don’t all leave in the same direction, or that is just a continuation of the parade!”
  • genuine apologies = selling out to hollywood, according to clint mcelroy
  • “you got foot water on the spaghetti!”

The teenage girl or young woman who declares herself to be “not like the other girls” doesn’t hate women- at least not fundamentally. She’s lashing out towards her peers with misdirected anger and frustration against unfair standards for femininity and womanliness set by society. 

Society tells girls that they have to dress a certain way, behave a certain way, and alter their appearance in order to be be seen as acceptable. Girls learn from a very young age that there is a “right” way and a “wrong” way to be female.

Is it any wonder, then, that the girl who is deemed “not good enough” by society takes a weird sort of pride in it and views her peers, (those who are deemed “good enough” and reap the benefits of this classification) as adversaries rather than fellow victims of misogyny? 

It’s not as if “Not Like The Other Girls” is the only form of woman-on-women hate that exists. A girl who grows up in a society full of supermarket tabloids and fashion panelists and “Hot or Not” websites and various and sundry other institutions designed to make her feel bad about herself is bound to lash out. 

We live in a world where girls are told they have to be beautiful in order to justify their existence- how can you think that misdirected anger perpetuated by frustrated bookish girls is the problem? Women and girls who don’t conform to societal expectations of beauty have little to no institutional power.

Troubles of being Pansexual #3 (Not being taken seriously)

Me: I'm Pansexual.

Them: But you’re going out with (someone of the opposite gender) so you can’t be. 

Me: Actually I can be because we are all actually mythical octopi-like creatures (nervous system) which control these mechanisms that are known as bodies so I can date who I want as we all look the same on the inside.

Them: You’re weird…

Me: I know I am.

I’ve been making some booklists for our weird state Pride which is in August and not June. Also for the kids in the support group. Go ahead and steal them, librarian pals.

True Q - 6.06

Oh, Q, you rake, you scalawag. You’re so mischievous that you’ve snuck into one of these mostly-unis episodes like the scoundrel you are. Also I believe this episode title, much like Return of the King, contains a spoiler within the title. But we’ll get there.
