This graphic is just amazing. Picturing what most most people are trying to say in words is a great way to reach out to more people. The Anorexia picture and the child abuse picture was the one that broke me the most even if all of these pictures tells us a very important story.
I don’t expect this to go viral or to get millions of likes because, I don’t want it, liking won’t help. Please, embrace it and take action. Re blog so others can see it and talk about these world spread issues.
We have to work together to make the world a better and safer environment for everyone.
Okay so there’s been a lot of bickering within the got7 fandom over what JB said during his celebrity bromance with Youngjae. Firstly, I’m disappointed in JB but I’m more dissapointed in people defending his actions. It wasn’t just one mistranslation, it was literally throughout the entire video. This is gonna be long but I took screenshots and I’m going to break it down for people who still can’t see why what he said was wrong.
But before that I just want to say this does not mean I think we should be sending him hate. In fact, we should be educating him on why what he said isn’t okay and a simple apology isn’t the end of the world. Idols aren’t perfect, they make mistakes and have flaws. JB’s homophobia is one of them. There’s nothing wrong with correcting ignorant behavior, but ignoring it just means it can happen again. Alright, I will now go in depth about the screenshots I took.

It occurs to me that we need our fiction, more than ever, to be what we think the world could be. We need aspirational fiction. What I feel like I need to do is give people a glimpse of a world that is better. Like, it doesn’t have to be like this. It can be better. And I’m not saying that there is no room for gritty realism, by all means, tell me exactly how awful it’s going to get, make me comprehend it. But what good does that do me if I feel despair and no hope and see no alternative?
There needs to be an alternative. There needs to be a belief that the world can be better than what we’ve been given. If the only thing I can lift up to myself as a signpost of that hope is a piece of fiction, then that piece of fiction is important. It means that I can imagine something better, and if I can imagine something better, then I can try to help us get there.
I am resisting the pull of my over-active imagination to write me only the dark scenario. I find myself in the wrong AU. I need to write me a better one. I want to try to write all of us a better one. And it is no mockery to think that that can start with a fluffy piece of fiction. Story-telling is how we change the world. A weird one just got told to us, the most elaborate piece of fiction I’ve ever seen, a fiction that won a presidency. We need to tell the counter-story.
Write aspirational fiction. Write the world you want to see. It is actually important.
now it makes a lot more sense that even said sonja can’t feel what he feels or think what he thinks. she doesn’t take his thoughts or feelings seriously and sees them only as sick ideas or maniac episodes. she dismisses him as crazy. and i truly believe skam will show that she’s wrong and ignorant by having isak and even discuss this, and have isak say that he knows even’s feelings are valid, and apologize for what he said about not wanting mentally ill people in his life.
So I’ve had some more time to think about S4, and while I am more sanguine about S4 than some fans, and I can see some of the good stuff, I do have some reservations. The biggest relates to our dearest John Watson.
I know many people have been saying this, or something like it, for a couple of weeks now, but if S4 really is this—just this and nothing more—here is my question for Mofftiss: What was John for?
So stimming is becoming a more open and talked about thing, even amongst neurotypical people. I see stim boards, visual stimming is a common thing these days, etc. etc.
Here’s what I have to say.
Neurotypical people can stim. That’s cool. That’s great.
Visual stimming such as slime and glitter are all cool and great.
But what’s not cool and great is making stimming some trendy thing and assuming it’s only just the visual stuff, and/or turning around and isolating autistic people for our “weird” stims like flapping and rocking.
Visual stims are valid and nice, neurotypical stimming is valid and nice.
But what’s not valid and nice is turning stimming into some aesthetic.
What’s not valid or nice is NT people making “stim boards” but making fun of autistic people for stimming by flapping, rocking, chewing, bouncing, verbal stims, etc.
Stimming isn’t always pretty paint mixing and glitter. It’s can be a form of expression and calm to neurodivergent folk. It can, in a lot of ways, be how we survive in situations. Not all stims are pretty, some can be self harmful, some aren’t but just don’t fit the “Tumblr aesthetic™”
I don’t mind your stim boards. I like them. I don’t mind NT stimming. I dig it.
But what I don’t like is stimming becoming some thing NT’s take over and try to take the neurodivergence out of. It’s been our thing, it’s not a trendy aesthetic, it’s a literal form of expression and calming. NT’s have stress and things and need to fidget and stim too, that’s fine. But don’t just come here and make a stim account because it’s trendy. Because I know a ton of people like that probably have looked sideways at an autistic person stimming in public.
Visual stims and NT stimming and all that are valid and wonderful, but please don’t forget the not-so-pretty stims, the ones that have gotten autistics/neurodivergent people discriminated against and dehumanized. The stims that have gotten autistics abused in therapies because it doesn’t look “normal” Please don’t forget that. Please don’t forget us.
Stimming because it’s calming, fun, expression, etc. regardless of your neurology- Good, awesome, great, and valid 👍🏻
Stimming because it’s trendy and fits an aesthetic- Not good, awesome, great, or valid 👎🏻
I wanna see stim boards that have hand flapping, rocking, chewing, etc. included.
I wanna see NT people stimming and not forgetting the ways autistic/neurodivergent people have been discriminated against and dehumanized for our stims, and encouraging and including us.
I love the idea of stimming becoming more acceptable, but it seems it’s becoming some trendy aesthetic rather than an inclusive movement.
Stimming isn’t some trend made by neurotypicals to look cool. It’s a common neurodivergent behavior that helps us communicate, cope, etc. Neurotypicals do it too, and I love the idea of stimming becoming just a common thing that’s accepted, that’s all I could dream of. But it’s not all pretty or aesthetic-y. It’s not a NT created thing, so can we stop seeing it that way?
Don’t let this be another thing NT people use to exclude or discriminate against us.
Instead, lets use it as a way to spread more awareness and acceptance for stimming, and make society more inclusive and accepting towards it! And that includes ALL stims.
What I think selfish autism moms are really saying when they’re lamenting their child’s autism...
Note: This is about autism moms who see nothing good about autism and never listen to autistic people. They’re usually the mothers of nonverbal autistic people who need lots of daily help and can’t make their communications understood.
These types of moms always, always, always have really selfish reasons for saying what they say. I pulled the ones I see or hear the most, there are probably tons more. There’s a pattern to it– it’s not lamenting for the child’s sake, they’re lamenting experiences they will never have because of their child’s autism.
Moms, this is probably what your autistic child really hears when you talk like this where they can hear you. It’s what they might feel if they ever ran into your blogs and saw or heard this.
“I’ll never hear my child say ‘I love you’.” (”My child’s love doesn’t count unless they can tell me they love me like a normal child, and I resent them because I will never experience that.”)
“My child will never go to college.” (”I resent my child because I won’t get to brag to my friends about my kid going to Harvard, and I won’t get to sit and watch them graduate.”)
“My child will never get married.” (”I’ll never get to stand at my child’s wedding, give them away or display their wedding pictures on my wall, and I really resent that.”)
“My child will never have children of their own.” (”I resent my child because I’ll never get the grandchildren I expected!”)
(sarcasm) Never mind what the kid wants to experience for themselves, it’s all about the moms, riiiiiight? (/sarcasm)
It’s understandable to be sad and grieve because the future is suddenly not as clear as it was before. But don’t let your grief turn into resentment and assume your child has no future. That’s a huge disservice to them AND to yourself.
Ok friends, it’s getting pretty late here and I (Mod H) have to go to bed for the night. Thank you to anyone who has sent in messages of support - seriously, I wish you guys could see some of the stuff in our inbox right now that we haven’t published, there’s so many of you coming out and saying kind words.
I can only reiterate what I keep saying. Be good to each other, support each other, look out for those who need help. If you can, help people. Keep yourself safe, make sure that you are okay. Whatever happens, know that you have the support of this community, and so many more. We have faced adversity before, and we shall overcome it the same way we have overcome it so many times - together.
Take your days one at a time. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, keep supporting each other, keep carrying on. We will always be here for you and supporting you, and you are never alone. Not ever. You are brave, all of you, and you are strong even when you feel like you are not, and together we will get through this.
You fat fuck!!! You want to binge right now… i knoe you do! Why the hell would you do that?? You finally reached 129! You have worked so hard to what? Throw it all away? Like you always do??? How pathetic can YOU GET??? you see so many skinny people around you!! You know why they are thinner and more beautiful than you are? Its because they have CONTROL! the one thing you dont have. You cant be beautiful if you dont have control! Work harder! HUNGRY TO BED HUNGRY TO RISE MAKES A GIRL SMALLER IN SIZE! there is a reasom why that saying exists!! BECAUSE ITS TRUE YOU OBESE FUCK!!!!! No more going into the kitchen. You are done for the night. STARVE BITCH STARVE
I like Sonadow when it’s done right, and not forcing ‘top and bottom’ roles on them that don’t fit. They match because none of them is really ‘better’ or more dominant than the other. If either tried to push the other down, then you can be damn sure the other would punch them in the shoulder for it.
I like the dynamic that both of them outwardly keep mostly the same relationship that they did before, teasing and taunting and one-upping the other every chance they get, but Sonic knows that sometimes he needs to be grounded by Shadow’s somewhat pessimistic realism, and Shadow knows that he needs to lighten up sometimes and enjoy life.
Shadow benefits from Sonic’s attitude and experience, Sonic benefits from Shadow’s maturity and calmer outlook. They balance each other out.
“Rvpph1r3 can’t become canon because Ruby and Sapphire have only had one episode surrounding their relationship. Obviously Pearlruby is going to be the endgame ship. They have more chemistry and interactions!”
“Rvpph1r3 can’t become canon because their personalities just aren’t compatible. Ruby is too angry for Sapphire, and Sapphire is too nerdy for Ruby.”
“Rvpph1r3 can’t become canon because it interferes with my other ships!”
“Rvpph1r3 can’t become canon because Ruby is too fat for Sapphire. They just don’t look right together. Now, Lapis? Lapis is sexy. That’s why Lapphire should be and is canon.”
“Lapis and Sapphire are LITERALLY living together! They have a pumpkin dog son! Are you guys fucking braindead?! Lapphire is canon!”
“The drill scene was just a joke. Ruby and Sapphire are friends, and ONLY friends.”
“Sapphire only respects Ruby for her soldier status. That’s not love. That’s why Rvpph1r3 isn’t canon and never will be.”
“I hate Rvpph1r3 because the ship is too popular.” (meanwhile, the Rvpph1r3 tag is filled with nothing but hate and people saying they prefer different ships)
“Rvpph1r3 shippers need to kill themselves. Their ship will never be canon!”
“I don’t like Rvpph1r3 because Ruby isn’t sexy enough for me.”
Now, read all of those quotes and read them good. Aren’t those rather rude and ridiculous things to say? Yes, they are.
Now, replace all instances of Rvpph1r3 with “Amedot”.
Replace Ruby with Amethyst. Replace Sapphire with Peridot.
If these wouldn’t be okay things to say in a parallel universe where Rvpph1r3 isn’t canon, then they aren’t okay things to say to Amedot shippers in this universe.
In a smutty fic, what do people call a vagina? (For writing reasons)
Second: Let’s make sure we’re all on the same page. The vagina is on the inside, the vulva makes up all the parts you see on the outside. See this post for more info!
I’m gonna say that usually the vagina is referred to as “inside” or something like that. Maybe “the heat of [insert name or gender identifying pronoun here]” … that’s all I got for that off the top of my head.
The parts of the vulva can go by many names. You could talk about the clitoris as “that sensitive bundle of nerves” or “bundle of nerves" … I’ve read it referred to as a “tiny bud” and “sensitive bud” it’s whatever you want! You could refer to the labia as “lips” or “folds” or (my personal fav) “the flesh of [insert name or gender identifying pronoun here]” … I think that’s all I got for this off the top of my head.
Anyways, The Alveraz arc has been a roller coaster (in more ways than one, most of them in a negative connotation), and nearly everyone is sick and fed up with it at this point. This is supposed to be the final arc, and from what most people are seeing and vocalizing, Hiro’s doing a shit job at it.
So, it begs the question, if you were writing it, what would you either add in or take out to make it more appealing and fitting? I mean, you can play around with it in any way you feel like, as long as the content improves and it gains more traction with the readers.
Personally, I can’t say much since I’ve dropped it at the end of the Tartaros Arc with Mard Geer’s Deus Ex Mashima ™ defeat, so there are things in this arc that I don’t know much about. I would like some expertise in this area since I’ve been following your respective blogs very closely and reading your somewhat-biased yet well-composed analysis pertaining to certain events of the story.
Anyways, thanks again and hope all of you have a nice weekend! :D
Okay so some people asked me to post some selfies so here they are! 😊🙈
Also some people asked me some questions about myself so here they are too!
What’s your name?
Marianne, but you can call me Mazzi 😁
Where are you from?
I’m from England! Although I was born in Thailand and my mother is Thai and my dad is English. But I look more English and Thai and I have a British accent so I normally just say I’m English 😂
What are your aspirations?
I want to be an actress! I wanna be in films and tv shows so I can see people make gifs of me and stuff cause idk 😂😅 I really wanna be in a batman film. I have loved batman from a young age and I want a Batman tattoo!
What languages can you speak?
Well obviously I’m fluent in English, and I know a few languages I’m just not fluent in them; I know Spanish, Thai and I’m teaching myself Romanian! 😊
If you had to choose a character to date out of any universe or anything, who would it be?
It’s a tie between Bucky Barnes and Jason Todd really, but I guess by how I image my ‘type’ is, I would have to say Jason Todd.
What got you into writing?
It’s a long story but in short, I just wanted to try it out! Plus it’s a good hobby and I enjoy it a lot!
Most things precious to you?
2. Batman (and Jason Todd 😆)
3. Tv and Film
5. My phone
8. That’s all I can think of at the moment 😂
9. Ooooo I forgot books!
10. And drawing!
What’s your favourite colour?
Black and Red.
Do you prefer Batman or superman?
What is your style?
Well I like leather jackets, jeans, dr martens/timberland boots, oversized tshirts and hoodies and anything.
I guess you could say my style is like 'bad girl’ or 'biker girl’ or just a female Jason Todd.
What’s your personality like?
I’m horrendously dirty minded. I’m a sarcastic little shit and I tend to swear a lot 🙈 but I guess I’m nice and I care a lot I just tend to come off as someone who doesn’t care and is a cold hearted bitch. But! Once you get to know me apparently my friend calls me “a huge, dorky, loving teddy bear.”
Another friend also told me, before we we’re friends, that when she first saw me she thought I wanted to kill her because of my apparent “bitch face” and my headphones were in and I was listening to like slipknot or something 😂
That’s all the questions I think that I have been given, if you want to ask me ANYTHING - come ask! 😊 or if you just wanna talk that’s fine too 😋
If they end up babygate, will they end all the stunts or will they continue with El? what do you think? I don't see sense to continue because ending bg is like confirming that they were lying and people who believe in this some will stop believing and elonour will be in danger. (Sorry for my English)
Don’t worry, your English is great! If they push Elounor further as a relationship, I can see lasting maybe a few more weeks and then going with “they tried to make it work, but it didn’t”, if they just keep things based on articles and social media, I can see them saying he reached out to her and she helped him see the truth but though it’d be better to be just friends
I usually NEVER watch the news here in Sweden but I’ve been watching it maybe 3-5 times?
And every time my heart fucking cramps when I hear about trump..
I really really hate talking about politics but there is a freaking line were you discuss money and funds and when you are discussing people own choices over their own fucking body.
And today it’s fucking crazy.
I can’t fucking grasp the reality that this is what’s happening?
Making abortions illegal?
NODAPL is getting fucked??
Torture is being discussed?!
Healthcare is fucked as well?
And so much more shit is going to happen…
I just want to say that I see you people who didn’t vote for him and I feel so fucking much for you. Our politics here are in shambles but not as extreme as the situation in the US.
I’m thinking about all of you.
Every. Single. Person. Who. Fights. For. Being. Themselves.
Women, POC, trans, Muslim, LGBT and every other person who is “not normal” keep on fighting people are supporting you from all over the world.
This is crazy and scary.. but keep on fighting but remember to take care of yourself. Whenever racists get the slightest confidence that’s when they attack and do sick shit.
Listen, first of all this is your blog. You don't have to ask us permission to post something you want to post. The whole idea is that you can draw whatever you like and share it; if someone doesn't like it it's their problem, but all your works are so sweet I can't see why someone would dislike them. I personally want to anything you wish to show; even more so if it make you exited. Mchanzo or not, I know it will be as good as all your other comics and I can't wait to see it. Cheers!
I see that I might have come off as self conscious about this ask, but I assure you that I would’ve continued with the series regardless of what some people might say about it. I was just (as I said) very curious to know of other people’s opinion. :) But thank you for the kind words! Much appreciated! ♥
