what do you mean they didn't use language like that then

idk I just love how we Young People Today use ~improper~ punctuation/grammar in actually really defined ways to express tone without having to explicitly state tone like that’s just really fucking cool, like

no    =    “No,” she said. 

no.    =    "No,” she said sharply.

No    =    “No,” she stated firmly.

No.    =    “No,” she snapped.

NO    =    “No!” she shouted.

noooooo    =    “No,” she moaned.

no~    =    “No,” she said with a drawn-out sing-song.

~no~    =    “No,” she drawled sarcastically.

NOOOOO    =    “No!” she screamed dramatically.

no?!    =    “No,” she said incredulously.

Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!

•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•Big mistake.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•"Well, ya-”
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. El tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!! •He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

How Pink Diamond was shattered

It’s all coming together.

So lets start off with this.

This is what started the rebellion, the first act of treason from Rose Quartz, but here’s the thing, we’ve already seen the scene directly after the act of poofing pink diamond. (I specified ‘poofing’ and not ‘shattering’ for a reason, bare with me)

This is it. Right here.

If you’ve watched Rose’s Scabbard as many times as I have (so many, too many) then you know how this scene goes.

Rose: “Pearl, I’m going to stay and fight for this planet.”

This dialogue is so, so important. They’ve reached a breaking point (ha) here. Something that Rose just did has pushed them both into needing to make a choice. There’s no going back. Rose chooses to stay.

It’s important to notice her expressions here.

The first thing that strikes me is that for a few frames she’s looking away from Pearl, looking back. What exactly is she looking at? The evidence of what she’s just done? Pink Diamond’s Gem?

But it’s her eyes that really do it for me.

She looks haunted.

Then the urgency of the situation comes in through the dialogue, and here’s why I think this just happened.

Rose: “You don’t have to do this with me.”
Pearl: “But I want to!”
Rose: “I know you do. Please, please understand, if we lose we’ll be killed, and if we win, we can never go home.”

She’s done something punishable by death, so she gives Pearl the option of leaving. She still has time to give Pearl the option of leaving.

This, if nothing else is proof that Homeworld doesn’t know that Pink Diamond has been poofed yet, that the act of treason has just been committed. They are the only  gems who know what has happened, we know this because not only does Eyeball confirm that there were witnesses to Pink Diamond’s shattering but, in the beginning of “The Answer” when Pearl and Rose first attack, the Ruby guards can be heard crying out:

Who are you?!”
“Show yourselves!”

At that point all Homeworld knew was that there was a rebellion, they didn’t know who had rebelled, who attacked Pink Diamond.

Back to Rose’s Scabbard.

If Pearl returns to Homeworld now it’ll be without consequence, she won’t be blamed because nobody knows what just happened, Pearl can lie, claim no involvement, anything. Rose knows this, tries to protect her by offering her a means of escape. (It’s obvious by her body language, her hesitation, and her resignation that she wants Pearl to stay but she would never ask that of her, but that’s another post entirely ;D )

Pearl declines, of course.

(Rose looks so relieved and happy and ajshgjakhgs)

We’ve just witnessed the start of the rebellion and the birth of the Crystal Gems.

Now this. This is where and how Pink Diamond was shattered.

The rebellion is underway, a thousand year war. The Crystal Gems are outnumbered, outgunned, and it all comes to a head in the strawberry battlefield where it seems that White Diamond has been sent in to finish them off once and for all.

This mural has always reminded me of something straight out of Sailor Moon.

And I believe the same scenario played out here. The odds were stacked against them, they were facing total defeat. So Rose, like Usagi, uses her last resort, her strongest weapon.

In this case, that’s Pink Diamond’s Gem.

And this is what happens.

She never meant to shatter her.

5riental  asked:

If I were to write a story that contained characters that were racially ambiguous or in a place where race didn't really exist (like with mermaids or human-like fantasy creatures) would the story be considered literature specific to my race even tho it doesn't necessarily contain race? I'm Korean and black.

Will my Literature be considered “[Insert Ethnicity] Literature” Despite Who/What I Write?

This could very well happen.

  • Libraries and bookshops may sort your fiction as “Ethnic/African American/whatever” literature no matter what the genre or subject matter because of your race alone. I’ve seen Authors of Color speak on this, that for having a diverse cast and/or just daring to publish while non-white despite genre or subject matter, their works are marked as “[insert group] literature”.
  • That isn’t a reason to avoid writing clearly defined racially diverse characters, as racial ambiguity is not necessarily proper representation (see Racial Ambiguity tag). Even human-like fantasy creatures can be ethnically coded by means of appearance, cultures, region, language, etc. something we’ve offered many resources for here as well.
  • You shouldn’t necessary feel you must publish anonymously or under a pen name for this reason either, if you don’t want to. You didn’t bring up this issue but it’s something worth mentioning.
  • In the case your work does get pushed into the “ethnic corner” and you’re uncomfortable with it, I believe you should reach out, and ask for it to be properly placed or labelled. I’d also suggest making your publisher aware of the issue too as they may have some solutions. I don’t have experience with this battle to offer much advice, unfortunately. Readers who do, feel free to share. 

For some really good reading on the subject, check out N. K. Jemisin’s article “Don’t Put My Book in the African American Section.”

~Mod Colette

It’s a symptom of “white as default” in mass society. Because you’re an Author of Color, you’ll run into challenges like people thinking everything you write is autobiographical. It’s the same deal with women authors who write about women— books about boys are gender neutral, books about girls are marketed only to girls and it’s not recommended boys read them.

It’s not fun, but unless a whole bunch of Authors of Color go through the process of fighting it and speaking out about it, nothing’s going to change. Right now there’s still a belief that diversity is some bold political statement instead of just part of life, so we’ve got to make them realize it’s part of life.

But things are already changing a lot! Of course, my point of reference is Canadian bookshelves, where I find diverse gene fiction semi-routinely, not separated out by the fact it’s diverse (mostly LGBT+, but some PoC-centric stories, too).

The more of us out there telling stories where we’re reflected, the more integration will happen.

anonymous asked:

apologies if this sounds like a redundant question, or even stupid, but could you say why DIO posses nuance as a character? (NOT saying he hasn't, just want to see your own words and take on it)

np, it doesn’t sound redundant at all.  I probably mean this in several ways so I’ll try to be narrow here and just focus on one.

I guess for me part of it’s the way Araki writes Dio’s body language and Dio’s pacing.  Some of my favorite examples of that are the parts of Phantom Blood that the anime totally leaves out where Dio and George are talking, George taking Dio into his confidence and freely discussing stuff that Dio winds of using later on to terrible ends.  Like Dio’s expression after George tells him about Jonathan’s lonely childhood and deep friendship with Danny

or this one where Dio just sort of ends the conversation and walks off during their exchange about the stone mask and George is left with a “?” in a word bubble, like ‘what was that all about‘

Open-ended scenes like these where Araki communicates that there’s a lot going on in terms of Dio’s thoughts and plans … but none of it’s being said out loud.

Another example: the pacing in the scene between Dio and Vanilla Ice where Dio’s given all these nice pauses.  Dio casually drinking wine and all those speech-bubble ellipses in response to two pages worth of gore and Ice’s self-decapitation, Dio taking in this whole horrific thing with a totally blasé attitude

And I like that there’s a continuity to his Pt.1 and Pt.3 mannerisms.

It’s not accidental, it’s heavily implied that Dio both suggested and expected that Ice do this without his ever having to explicitly ask.

There’s other stuff too but I guess I just mean the fact that even though Dio’s known for being a flamboyant villain, the way he’s written and the way his gestures, actions and speech are paced, it’s a lot more nuanced and subtle. 

I’m here.

@prinxietyhell u said u wanted to see this

so. i decided to actually write a fanfic for the first time in forever. and it’s prinxiety, which i’ve never written before. don’t worry, i’ve used proper grammar in the actual fic, lowercase is only my aesthetic in contexts where it’s appropriate.

trigger warnings: anxiety/panic attacks, self-hate, suicidal thoughts (at one point)

ship is, as i said, prinxiety, but it’s really light and can probably be seen as platonic if that’s what u want.

Significance of Rumors

I think that whatever “shit goes down” this season will be partially because of the spreading of rumors/false information. We’ve seen rumors used as a plot device in prior seasons and I think one of the interpretations of the song lyrics “please don’t let me be misunderstood” in the trailer could be the ‘telephone game’ effect that rumors/miscommunication can cause and how a rumor can be the root of a domino effect of unfortunate events.

anonymous asked:

hi! what are your thoughts on Magnus using Bahasa, whether in fanfic or on Shadowhunters? (didn't read the books so don't care about them) - @defender-and-destroyer

Hi, there!

First of all, bahasa means language in Indonesian. So “speaks bahasa” is literally translated as “speaks language” which is pretty weird. Unless you say Bahasa Indonesia, which means Indonesian language or you can just use Indonesian.

(I have to say this, because of non-Indonesian—mostly white people, tbh—love to refers Indonesian as bahasa and I get frustrated because it literally means language. Just use Indonesian or Bahasa Indonesia.)

I have a lot of feeling about Magnus speaks Indonesian in fanfictions. I’m not going to lie, they’re mostly bad. After Magnus’ ethnicity was confirmed in City of Lost Souls, I found a lot of fanfictions with badly google-translated Indonesian. I stopped reading fanfics after that because I couldn’t stand it. I only started reading fanfics again after season 1 aired. Some fanfics with sloppy Indonesian are still here and there and they still make me want to pull my hair honestly. Usually, I immediately close it since it really is ruined the mood. However, I once read a fanfic with really good Indonesian and I was like, “wow, whoever write this did a good job, I love them!” and I’m definitely not upset.  

As for the show, I don’t mind if they want to make Magnus speaks Indonesian. But I really can’t trust a bunch of white writers and producers in doing this, especially after a lot of things go downhill this seasons. Not to mention that most of western TV shows or movies rarely do justice when they make a character speaks in another language. Have you ever heard a character in TV/Movies speak in your native language but you don’t know what they’re talking about until you read the subtitles? I don’t want it happens.

In short, I’m completely okay with Magnus speaking Indonesian as long as it’s done correctly.

If you want to write Magnus speaking Indonesian in your fanfics for whatever reasons and you know zero Indonesian and have no one who knows the language to help you, I really don’t encourage it. Especially not with google translate. (If you try to translate a full sentence from English to Indonesian with google translate, it definitely ends up in a clusterfuck. Trust me). But, If you insist, maybe you can seek a help. There are few of Indonesian fans here. I don’t know if they’re willing to help you, but I prefer help you with some translations rather than seeing sloppy Indonesian in your fics. I’m tired of seeing that.

Oh, while we’re at it, in the book, Magnus only speaks one sentence in Indonesian and I guess everyone in Malec fandom know that.

Hi, I sent a prompt but my old, stupid iPad is playing up so you either didn't receive it or received it 12343 times, lol. It was: Kara travels to a new Earth and meets the second incarnation of Supergirl, who is also Kara and Cat's daughter. This experience inspires her to reveal her feelings to Cat. Thank you!

Kara knows it’s probably dangerous, but when she was overwhelmed by the weight of responsibilities and expectations of her Earth, she’d bring out Cisco’s device and hop worlds for a few hours. At first she just checked in with Barry on Earth-1, but eventually that got to be no better. When she’d show up there, she’d end up helping with whatever mess he’d gotten into lately.

And it’s not that she didn’t like helping, Barry was a friend and a good man, and Kara was always glad to help out. But he didn’t usually need the help, and it seemed to turn into trading one set of responsibilities for another. Not exactly the restful escape she’d been thinking of.

MiniFic: That’s Not How It Ends

Fandom: Yu-Gi-Oh! DM
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Negligible Prideshipping


Set immediately after the events of DSoD



Mokuba taps his pen on his desk, staring attentively at the teacher. He isn’t being of course, but it’s helpful to look like he is. He’s drafting an email to Duel Disk R&D in his head. Trying to come up with a plausible excuse for why they woke up this morning with their access to the Grade 5 Testing Facility revoked. Something other than ‘sorry but the facility disappeared along with the CEO and what you’re actually seeing is a massive hard light hologram which could well short circuit any moment because this isn’t what it’s designed for’.

The heavy late-winter rain drums on the window, masking the sound of his left hand tapping out the email under the desk.

He pretends he’s Seto of course. He’s had more than enough practice that it’s indistinguishable most of the time. Nothing causes a drop in stock faster than ‘the CEO has literally vanished’. Besides, people take him more seriously as Seto. Partly his fault for being a bit more spirited than his brother, partly their mistake. Seto plays on making people think he’s all-powerful, whereas he uses their underestimation of him. It makes them an amazing team.

He sends it. It doesn’t really explain anything, but then his brother wouldn’t, so it should seem convincing at least.

“-leaving Persephone trapped in the underworld with Hades.”

He taps his pen harder and the girl at the desk in front of him turns and glares. He nods, with a look that doesn’t manage to make it to a smile, and stills, pressing it firmly into the table. It’s a blatant tell that he shouldn’t have at this age. He knows what Seto would say. That there are hundreds of influences on him every day, and statistically something is going to remind him of things he doesn’t want to think of, it doesn’t make it a sign, or mean that ‘the universe is out to get him’. But then Seto built a dimensional transporter to go and find a dead pharaoh he couldn’t stop thinking about so what the fuck would he know.

Mokuba puts the pen flat on the table with a snap. Better than throwing it across the room. Many times better than kicking over the desk and screaming, which is what he actually wants to do.

His phone buzzes in his hand. New text. Six new emails. His ears feel like they’re ringing. The sensation that there are too many thoughts in his brain, moving too fast. Cold sweat beading on his forehead. He hears Seto explaining about adrenaline responses and forces it away. Deep breaths.

Marcus moronically asking if it’s true, just to get a rise. It’s only been twenty minutes. He wants them to get it over with, get the lesson over with. Get the story over with. Unbidden, his mind races ahead, trying to recall anything he can about it.

She couldn’t come back. Persephone. That was the point right?

Not his brother though, his brother doesn’t understand that he ‘can’t’ do something as a matter of principle, and the universe therefore just has to move out of the way for him. The idea that Seto ‘couldn’t’ come back, he tells himself, doesn’t worry him. It doesn’t. It doesn’t.

His fingers are ice around the phone.

“Well there are many versions of the myths, so it is not right to say that there is one ‘true’ version. And in the context of a story, everything is true. In older versions of the tale, Persephone is older, a young woman out adventuring who finds herself trapped - not kidnapped,”

His jaw clenches.

“Or she heard the cries of the dead and walked freely into the Underworld,”

He can’t breathe.

“For every story where Persephone cannot return, there is another which says that she chose not to.”

He grabs his bag, shoves his things into it and stands up sharply, causing his chair to screech across the floor and his vision to darken at the edges. He hurries out the door with everyone staring at him. The teacher doesn’t call him back - perhaps thinks he’s going to be sick.

She’s probably right.

anonymous asked:

1) Re: Wanda and her lack of redemption arc- One of the MCU's biggest fuck yous was that they allowed Zemo to apologize to T'challa for his Father's death as collateral in his revenge scheme, but didn't have the decency to allow Wanda to do the same to the Avengers for stripping them of their autonomy and using them to hurt other people (of which the primary victims were Tony and Bruce). If they wanted to redeem her and make her more sympathetic, they really should have allowed her

I’m really sorry that I didn’t answered this last night, nonny but it was very late here and I was on mobile.

1) Exactly. But honestly I like Zemo more than Wanda for that. They allowed him to apologise, but also they showed him not being so bat-shit hateful blaming all the evil on his life to the Avengers (just the death of his family) and he neither played the victim. Like Wanda did.

The problem with Wanda lays directly in her “tragic backstory”, I mean, just listening to it, it’s ridiculous:

This is a backstory that doesn’t work for an anti-villain/anti-hero to go straight up a hero. Because it’s illogical. The audience that has a minimal knowledge of how the world works knows that blaming the person that made the weapon is stupid an illogical.

  • Second part of the ask:

2) to make real amends to her primary victims. Also, having her sit and talk to Tony about her anger against the American military industrial complex (which was what killed her parents) and how she conflated that with Stark. She has serious trauma that needs to be laid out. I mean, Tony could have talked about how he too realized the faults in the MID and is trying to make amends for his ignorance and inaction. How it has led him to believe in accountability and checks and balances

  • Part three:

3) LIKE THE FUCKING ACCORDS. It would have been 10x better than Steve’s convo w/ her in the beginning of Civil War, where he treats her unintentional murder of 12 ppl as a small hiccup that can be corrected w/ “try try again”. But no, all we end up w/ is a character marketed as a child half the time, and an adult the other half. It’s character assassination and it sucks. Either show her struggle w/ redemption and accountability as a member of the Avengers, or keep her a villain.

The problem here nonny, it’s that the dynamics are terribly flawed and bad placed. With Wanda, her deed of joining the Avengers it was not for goodness, it’s was common sense and self-preservation. We never see her re-thinking about Tony or showing a single little remorse about hurting him, neither she seems to want to stop and think about the situation. Tony talking to her would have required she trying to go closer and talk but to the first moment that we see her on screen with him her intention are clearly hostile:

Look at the corporal language of this part. This is a hero? No.

This is an anti-hero? No.

This is someone who is conflict?

I dare say: no.

The point about anti-heroes and anti-villains is they know, very deep in them, they have a doubt, a conflict. Wanda doesn’t. She knows what she is doing. She knows that she is hurting someone and she knows what she did. Take a look to Bruce too:

Also take her reaction when he calls her out for mindfucking him:

Her expression seems to be the one of someone who regrets her bad deeds.

But…

Her face hardens when he threatens her and she doesn’t speak about the topic again. Not with him, not with Clint in their oh so marvellous pep talk.

Someone that answered one of my posts said that showing Wanda’s struggles were that ridiculous scene whit with her crying in front of Clint, so the audience have to see her as a poor misunderstood child that was very scared and didn’t know what she was doing…

That’s not how it works!

Wanda should have showed struggle and conflict since the beginning of the movie! She should have interacted with people that she hurt as you said but she didn’t!

And before somebody says something…

Clint doesn’t count!
Steve doesn’t count!

Clint was not attacked by Wanda, he didn’t suffered in her hands. Steve? He forgave her at the instant. He attacked his armour-less teammate because of her word. He told Natasha, one of Wanda’s victims “she with us”, like she hadn’t some right of feeling uncomfortable by her presence!

They don’t count!

The base, the point for an anti villain to be redeemed and made an ally or friend in front of their enemies is the interaction and and the villain admitting that they hurt the protagonists. It’s simple, take Regina Mills in Once Upon A Time. She never became in a full hero but she earned trust by admitting her bad deeds. She showed struggle and doubt. She became a wondeful anti-hero Wanda didn’t.

Just look at the moment when she decides to side with the Avengers:

What choice do we have?

This is someone that learned form her mistakes. No.

No.

No.

No!

This is somebody that wants to fucking live. She wants to keep herself and her brother alive. There’s no doubt here. Not struggle in the loyalties. No conflict! She switched sides in the beginning and she does it again because it’s convenient for her. Not for goodness or anything that changes that she hurt people during all the movie!

She doesn’t doubt for a fucking instant to go to the “winning side”:

What kind of anti-hero can you get of that?

Which leads to CW. You said that she siding with Tony would have been the better, and yes, it would have been a good character development she being remorseful and keeping her initial supposed believes about accountability but with motherfucking Johannesburg, how it’s that possible?

How?

Like, that’s what the Russo and M&M tried to to do and failed miserably. They tried to sell us an anti-hero. They washed her awful deeds and make her look as conflicted when she never hesitated at the beginning.

They tried to us to believe that she can’t control her powers.

And that

is

bullshit.

And just bullshit.

They also made her clothes more clear, her hair too. Miss Elizabeth was wearing a wig, it was not difficult have one as her hair was in the previous movie.

They tried to vanish the darkness of her. Why? Because it its more difficult present a redemption for villain than a anti-hero. Or as that idiotic writers seem to think: that poor kid that did no wrong.  

Because it was more easy to forgive this:

Than this:

So, they invented this new Wanda, and put all the blame in Tony’s shoulders. The funny thing it’s that the audience it’s stupid enough to believe it. That might talk about the power of the female characters of being forgiven for everything as long they have a pretty face and a delicate body.

Even if it’s a character without struggles or good intentions, or remorse.

So, nonny, my opinion is firm. Wanda Maximoff’s redemption arc was a fuck you because she didn’t deserved or needed one.

Because Wanda Maximoff is better as a villain.

Transcript of Getzlaf’s ‘apology’ after Game 5 of the Western Conference Final:

Getzlaf: You know, obviously, a situation like that where I’m on the bench by myself, frustration set in there was obviously some words said, not necessarily directed at anyone in particular, but just kind of a comment. I gotta be a little bit more responsible with the words I choose.

Definitely as a father, as somebody that takes a lot of pride in this game and the respect for it, um it’s tough to see somebody refer to it as what TSN did. I didn’t mean it in that manner in any way and, you know, for that to got that route was very disappointing for me.

I did accept responsibility and I accepted the fine. We talked to the league – I understand that it’s my responsibility not to use vulgar language period. Whether it’s a swear word or whatever it is, we gotta be a little bit more respectful of the game and that’s up to me. I expect- accept that responsibility and we’ll move forward.

Reporter: Is that something you regret, looking back? I understand your meaning and what you meant by it, but is it something you regret though?

Getzlaf: Well again, of course, that’s my responsibility is to understand that there’s eyes and ears on us all the time. Um, fortunately enough no one heard it, if you can read lips it’s a little bit harder and I apologize for that.

That’s a thing that you know, you won’t hear from me again. I hope I didn’t offend anybody outside the circle that we trust, so.

anonymous asked:

ive had ppl make the argument that butch queen & femme queen terminology in ballroom culture mean that butch and femme can't be claimed exclusively by lesbians. ik they're different terms with different definitions but i didn't know how to articulate a counter-argument that validates both ballroom & lesbian culture? any help?

Short answer is, I’d ask exactly what variety of that terminology they’re referencing when they use the terms “butch” and “femme” because they’re claiming something that has nothing to do with them.


Long answer:

1. The people making that argument are never connected to those scenes and think of them as dead scenes from which they can pull a history that is literally not theirs when those scenes are still alive and not just bargaining chips, and they are using them as a bargaining chip specifically because they want lesbians to shut up and think we’re too stupid to see through that.

2. Those terms have totally different meanings within those scenes than they do in popular self-styled radical queer communities and almost everyone involved in this conversation knows this.

3. The people using this argument as a bargaining chip are almost all very aware that what lesbians are combating is the notion that nonlesbians have an inarguable right to use lesbian terminology WHILE lesbians are written out of the list of acceptable sexual orientations in a lot of these communities, and the use of these terms to push misogynist politics about how “femme people” as a group (which many people into queer politics will tell you includes gnc cis gay men) are oppressed by “masc people” (which these same people will tell you includes butches and other gnc women) in a way that is not just outright nonsense, not only misogynist, but lesbophobic, especially because it disrespects the history of butch/femme and the autonomy of butches and femmes so deeply.

4. Most of what lesbians are uncomfortable with is the absolute ripping of both terms from any connection with lesbianism when they’re so inextricable from each other, and the absolute denial that they have any connection to lesbianism when the terms (AS USED by the kinds of scenes that do this) are so obviously taken from their specifically lesbian context.

5. I haven’t done extensive reading on it but I’d bet good money the way the terms got there is still literally from lesbians- a lot of people don’t realize most of the biggest drag and bar scenes used to just be general drag scenes before drag kings became more rare and gay and lesbian communities became more separate, wherein drag queens, drag kings, and necessarily all kinds of LGBT people (as in lesbians, gay men, bi people, trans people, all of them) would have been mingling and would have shared a lot of the same language. But it’s clear that they developed in two different ways in ball cultures/scenes and in lesbian communities/scenes, and I don’t think ball scenes are appropriating anything from lesbians in that sense- I USED to think that but, no offense @ me, I think I was just heated and that was a stupid position. It seems most likely to me that the term ended up in both scenes because there was a lot of natural mingling before they separated and they developed in both cultures differently.


That development is VERY different from people with no connection to either coming along and using “femme” as a term to denote femininity in a way that seems CLOSEST to the lesbian context- mind you, the term is usually used for people who at least vaguely see themselves as related to women even though they may not use the term “woman” because “femme” has been so wholly substituted for it, and even when used by men who are very involved in queer scenes, it usually (not always but especially among white men) has nothing to do with the way “butch” and “femme” developed in ball scenes or lesbian scenes.

6. Frankly, I very, very often see the term used by bpq women who primarily date men as a way of comparing literal men with gnc women because they’re uncomfortable with gender nonconformity, point blank, and like having a term that, for them, allows them to claim that they are marginalized specifically for NOT being gender nonconforming, and it’s deeply disrespectful. It’s a way of writing marginalization onto themselves that they literally do not face while marginalizing women who DO face stigma and marginalization for being gnc, and that’s outright appropriation. To see it coming from women whose primary issues often include not being seen as queer enough because they are dating men (all those articles on queer femmes being seen as straight are, I think, about another anxiety, because I guarantee you femmes who are out and about with their partners are not getting read as straight while they’re together at LEAST) . To be very clear, yes it is fucked up to call bi women straight, and not all bi women have the same relationship to men or the same attitudes toward lesbians and lesbianism. But for women who are not lesbians AND not gnc and don’t have all that much in common with lesbians to grab a lesbian term, USE it to marginalize women (including lesbians) who actually are gnc, and then claim that butches are oppressing them, all within the context of politics which are usually hostile to lesbians, is upsetting and frustrating and yeah it pisses a lot of lesbians off.

6. Honestly if queer cultures weren’t so generally hostile to lesbians and working so hard to erase us, I bet women would generally care a whole lot less. If we didn’t have so little left to hang onto it wouldn’t be nearly so big of a deal- not to say it isn’t a big deal in and of itself, but I’m saying the context around these things matters.

anonymous asked:

What do you think of Eren calling Mikasa a "bitch"? I didn't like that :(

oh you mean in the very early chapters?
well he didn’t call her that actually, but because Japanese is a very tricky language things like this happen

so in Japanese there are many ways to say “you”, and it goes from formal/polite, informal, to highly informal/rude
there’s “kimi”, “omae” and “teme”, and probably more that I’m unaware of

Eren uses “teme” (a highly informal and pretty rude version of “you”) many times when he’s angry, and because in English there’s only one way of saying “you!” that doesn’t translate the intensity intended in Japanese, translators tend to change it to something that is closer in meaning

Eren in that scene only said teme= you! in an angry way, which resulted in the tragic translation that is “bitch”, which I don’t think fit at all

kayladchristine  asked:

When you realize that Nico didn't even start speaking English til he was 9-10

Oh my gods. This is something I have a lot of feelings about. Like, I always kind of know it, but then every once in a while it strikes me and I’m left gaping like a fish with the thought of baby Nico with flawed English and a thick Italian accent.

  • by the time he’s fifteen, nico’s english is pretty much perfect
  • he understands most people immediately, without having to put extra effort on translation in his head
  • he speaks english with everyone and it comes so natural to him that if he drops a book on his feet he curses in english without even thinking about it
  • but there’s still this tone in his voice that comes with the underlying italian and makes the words sound like music in wills ears, and it becomes more and more clear when nico is relaxed or sleepy or just really happy about something
  • nico is seventeen when he one day realizes that he mostly thinks in english now too
  • then he tries to remember the way he talked italian with his mother, and with bianca, but only bits and pieces come to him
  • he remembers how to speak italian, but it’s not effortless anymore
  • it’s more of a second language than a first now, and part of nico is sad and desperate and terrified, but mostly he’s just frustrated
  • he opens up to will about it because “it’s supposed to be my mother tongue, will, how can i forget a language that was the first i ever spoke???”
  • and he cries a little, but doesn’t dwell on it, because he has english anyway and it’s all good
  • that’s until it becomes clear to him that what he feels towards will can’t be just “i really really like you” anymore
  • and he thinks that it must be love, but the word love seems so used he doesn’t want it to define what he feels towards will because that’s just so much more
  • so he’s lying in his bed one night and staring at the ceiling, listening to will’s slight snoring and feeling the swelling in his chest
  • when he suddenly remembers it
  • hears it like it’s yesterday, when in truth it’s been decades
  • the soft voice of his mother, singing words rather than saying them, whispering in his ear while stroking his hair to distract him from the bombings that shake the walls in the shelter
  • and before he knows it, nico is shaking will awake, tears falling down his cheeks, and he doesn’t know if the tears are happy or sad
  • sad because of the terrifying memory that has just surfaced
  • happy because he finally knows what to say
  • he decides to go with the latter, because when will opens his eyes and nico sees the blue he can’t help but smile through his tears
  • “ti amo, will”, he whispers, and even if will doesn’t speak italian it’s clear to both of them that he understands
  • “ti amo tanto”
  • and it really doesn’t matter to nico that will answers in english, because he knows what will means when he says “i love you too”, knows that will means it the same way he does
  • flash forward a few years, and it’s pretty much the only italian nico ever uses anymore, because he doesn’t see the need to
  • nico still speaks in that singing tune that makes will’s lips curl into a smile
  • he still has to focus really hard when he talks with will’s texan cousins because he really wants to understand them but can’t (he’s pretty sure it’s not all because he used to speak italian)
  • he still translates the menu to will when they go to an italian restaurant on a date, even though he’s done it so many times will should know them himself by now
  • and once or twice he’s accidentally slipped to italian during an argument when he’s been really angry, but he doesn’t even notice himself and can’t do it again when he tries on purpose
  • but nico isn’t sad about losing his mother tongue anymore
  • because he rather likes it when he stubs his toe on the coffee table leg and mutters a snappy fuck and will absentmindedly tells him to watch his language

Sorry again for getting side tracked with this… Keep those thoughts coming, sweetie!

How is one supposed to get over this ep? I mean. Before watching it, based on what I saw on twitter, I thought I wouldn't like it but BOY was I wrong. It was perfect. The polygraph scene was so revealing AND THAT ALMOST KISS. Don't get me started. I loved it. Maybe it's just me, though, but didn't it seem strange to you that the characters were like 'lighter'? Like everything was less serious, there were faces and little jokes and SMILES. AND JANE KNEW ABOUT NAS. That is NOT nice.

(Sorry, ran out of space) How did she knooow??? I hated how her face changed when she asked about it. But I digress. I don’t know if it was the long wait, the built up hope or what, but I loved this ep. I think it’s one of my favouritest ever (yeah, I know that’s not a word, but seemed fitting) Anyway, I needed a place to ramble about it because I’m SO CRAZY about it… Thanks for providing your ask box for that! Xoxo

You are never ever expected to get over this episode. This episode will be our end. Congratulations. 

The polygraph was GOLD. PURE PURE GOLD. OMG. Everything about it was so perfect. From the questions. To their answers. To their body language and their looks and how honest they were. You know they both can lie on polygraph and make it work but no the TRUTH was more important even if it was all part of a sick scavenger hunt!

Then the almost kiss scene? KILL ME NOW! OR YOU KNOW WHAT DO NOT KILL ME BECAUSE THEY ALREADY DID. THEY KILLLLLEEEEEEEED ME DED!

From the adorableness of the whole team hanging out and having a drink (after a full adorable day of Weller and his Women) and Tasha being Tasha and Patterson being Patterson and Jane being awkward and cute.

And then Patty and Tasha leave and Kurt does this adorable quick look over his shoulder to make sure they’re out of ear shot before he turns to talk to Jane. AND HE HAS NO REASON TO TALK TO HER OR BRING UP WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE MISSION EXCEPT THAT HE WANTS HER TO KNOW!

THIS BOY IS MADLY IN LOVE AND HE IS DONE JUST HOLDING IT IN! HE WANTS JANE TO KNOW HOW HE FEELS AND HE JUST FUCKING OPENS HIS MOUTH AND IT ALL STARTS COMING OUT LIKE THE FLOODGATES OPENED AND HIS HEART IS POURING OUT!

AND JANIE! OMG JANIE SHE CANNOT BELIEVE IT BUT IT IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING AND OMG SHE CANNOT BE HAPPIER!

And then they just look at each for a moment and then slowly, SO FUCKING SLOWLY THEY START TO LEAN IN AND IT IS ACTUALLY GONNA HAPPEN!

And by IT I mean they will get interrupted because it has been happening all year and the joke is not just us who have picked up on this ridiculous pattern THEY TOO HAVE NOTICED HOW RIDICULOUS ALL THIS IS AND THEIR LAUGHTER AND ABSOLUTE “CAN YOU FUCKING BELIEVE IT” REACTION IS PRICELESS!

yeah I ignored the Nas bit… I kinda figured she knew because everyone kinda knew? but I guess Reade said it best when he said “I have no idea what you’re talking about” ignoring the problem until it went away was the best way to go.

ETA: AND DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THEIR FACES WHEN THEY ARE INTERRUPTED AND KURT WELLER’S FUCKING WINK!
