what is up with these tags idk

anonymous asked:

um hi no offense but I just woke up in a cold sweat realizing that the regent doesn't have a name and I don't know what to do with my life

he does actually have a name most people don’t realize this but he does it’s “Please Punch Me In The Fucking Face”. 

On a serious note though, I do think about this from time to time too. I wonder why Pacat didn’t name The Regent, but a part of me think she did it to further dehumanize him (??? if that makes sense?? i’m typing this out at like 3 am so there’s a chance this is all intelligible garbage) like to make him seem even more cold and unapproachable as a character. 

There was a post going around a while back about Laurent being named after/having a similar name to The Regent which I had mixed feelings about, but overall I thought was interesting?? Pacat is very interesting when it comes to names because (from what I understand, which isn’t a lot) because sometimes her characters have names that represent them very well (see: Erasmus) and other times they don’t appear to at all?? of course I could just not be looking in the right place  

Though, personally speaking, I’ve been mentally calling him Loghain in my head. Partly bc it starts with an L (since Auguste and Aleron both start with As?? so maybe The Regent’s name would also start with an L to parallel Laurent’s name in a twisted way) and partly bc I’m a huge dragon age nerd (in Origins Loghain betrays The King, his son in law, and leaves him to die in battle. After which declaring the group of people he also betrayed– the grey wardens– as traitors as well as lying to his daughter about the truth of what happened and proceeds to declare himself Regent)

I 100% understand why trans people/genderqueer people wouldn't be comfortable dating cis people, but I guess that makes me feel really bad? I can't really explain it, but it's probably bc I just don't really like being disliked or hated or anything, and idk. this isn't a guilt trip (if anything I feel second-hand guilt because most cis people can be terrible, I'm sorry you guys have to put up with that crap) but I just kinda feel bad? Is that like unfair to you guys or transphobic in anyway? :(

Okay, I’m going to try and be not-too-harsh in my response to this, but I can’t make any guarantees. I got like four hours of sleep so I’m not great at tone. 

Anyways, to be honest, this ask does in fact make me (personally) vaguely uncomfortable. I’m going to try to break it down line by line.

“I 100% understand why trans people/genderqueer people wouldn’t be comfortable dating cis people”

The first thing is vaguely nitpicky but like, it’s vaguely uncomfortable and feels performative for you as a cis person to claim that you 100% understand why trans/genderqueer people might not be comfortable dating cis people, especially when the rest of this ask has been steeped in cis guilt. 

“but I guess that makes me feel really bad? I can’t really explain it, but it’s probably bc I just don’t really like being disliked or hated or anything, and idk. this isn’t a guilt trip (if anything I feel second-hand guilt because most cis people can be terrible, I”m sorry you guys have to put up with that crap) but I just feel kinda bad?”

Okay, now while I, a borderline individual, can understand where you’re coming from in not wanting to be disliked or hated, this is cis guilt, plain and simple, that comes from a place of cisgender privilege. Trans/genderqueer/nonbinary people should not have to do emotional labor to reassure you that you’re One Of The Good OnesTM and that you’re Not Like Those Other Cis PeopleTM because you feel bad for being cis. 

At the end of the day, being a cisgender person, you still have cis privilege.

Instead of feeling guilt and feeling sorry for us and feeling bad for yourself and drawing the focus of this conversation to yourself, do something. Learn to push past it or work around it and take action instead. Because, quite frankly, your guilt does absolutely nothing to actually help trans/genderqueer/nonbinary people and is rather performative. 

Take action and use your cis privilege to help trans/genderqueer/nonbinary people in whatever ways you can (being disabled, I emphasize doing what you can).

Listen to us and our experiences.

Don’t center yourself or your feelings in these kinds of discussions.

Be aware that you have cisgender privilege, don’t consider yourself One Of The Good OnesTM and Not Like Those Other Cis PeopleTM. 

Allyship is not a badge you can slap on to make yourself feel like a good person; allyship is a continuous process of unlearning your biases and supporting marginalized groups you are not a part of in their struggle without making it about yourself. 

That got kind of rambly and ranty, oops. But yeah, tl;dr: you’re not a bad person for having guilty feelings, but this whole thing very much comes from a place of cis privilege and is vaguely uncomfortable and please learn to deal with your Performative Privileged GuiltTM in a more productive way. Idk. Hope that helps !!

(If any other trans/genderqueer/nonbinary people would like to add your thoughts, please feel free to do so !!)

Hi!! Sorry to bother, but I've seen that you tag a lot of your posts/gifs as stimmy things but idk what that means! I've tried looking it up but none of the definitions were too clear:( could u please help me??

Ah, not a problem cutie!

So I call it stimmy things, but they’re mainly just called stimming or stim things. Stimming is basically something someone does that can make someone feel calm, relaxed, and even very satisfied! It can be through items or toys, or things like flapping your hands, rocking, etc. So these videos and gifs I reblog, when watched, can help others feel really relaxed, and as the name suggestions, feel stimulated!! It’s something that autistic people use a lot because it helps them. There’s also stim toys, which are toys that are relaxing. Some you use to play around with in your hands, some are necklaces you can chew on, etc. Some of the most common stimming videos are the ones you might see of people cutting kinetic sand with a knife.. those are my favs!! They’re extremely satisfying to watch. For me, it helps my anxiety a lot!

Voltron Theme [Epic Trailer Version]

Voltron Theme [Epic Trailer Version]

tfw voltron hits the Big Screen™. so here’s my attempt scoring some music for Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, as if it were a cinematic trailer. Some notes on composition below. Enjoy!!  

note: original VLD Opening Titles written by Alexander Geringas. This is most definitely a homage to his work.

Keep reading

We all know that the Galra have sentries

These guys^^ And they’re basically just robots who act as guards or fight in an army. That seems.. pretty unfair to the Voltron team considering that they only consist of 7 people. But the Alteans had their own sentries!

RIGHT THERE, in S2EP7 the flashback that the Black Lion gives Shiro shows these guys in the background. I know it’s hard to see but their designs look pretty similar to

The gladiator bot that the castle has, and I think that the sentries the Galra have can also double as training bots just like the Altean one can. But this raises a bunch of questions like: Do Galra children practice with these bots? Do all alien species have their own bots? Can the castle mass produce these guys, or is there only one in the castle? Do you think Coran can make more?
