what other people say

sheakspaere  asked:

how do you think jackie and hyde would react to their son on daughter coming out as gay or bi???

We are talking about a coming out in the 90s, probably.

For what we’ve seen in the show, both characters don’t care much about other people’s sexuality (mostly because the show didn’t care to actually talk about that, just once in season 1. And the kid’s reactions are more of the fact that they don’t believe that Buddy is gay, but not because of his sexuality but because none have a gaydar like Fez’s).

Particullary, I think Hyde would be ok, no matter the kid’s gender. Jackie wouldn’t care either, but will be worried about what other people may do to them or say to them. She would probably be fighting everyone and internally it means there’s a part of her that is still thinking about what other people may think of her child, her family and her.

I think this experience would make her let go of the rest of that part of her that started to disappear when she started dating Hyde, that she will finally let go of what other people may think. That’s a possible scenario. Ultimately, I think she would accept and love her child no matter what.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.

before i forget this is the reference I made for the Takubun I did 

(this is embarrassing)

im sending this bc i keep seeing the “freedom of speech” argument come up, but i read this online article by a professor for the NY Times that basically explained that what people say is “radical leftists taking away others’ right to speak” by protesting speakers like Richard Spencer is the antithesis of restricting freedom of speech. The whole point of rejecting people like him and their speeches is to protect the rights of others… specifically the marginalized groups that those speakers dehumanize through their views

i.e. Richard Spencer is a white supremacist. When he engages in a discourse on race, his expressed views and by extension his very presence in that discourse deny and invalidate the identities of nonwhite groups - his participation alone in that debate involves denying the rights of another group of people

basically: “free speech advocates failed to acknowledge that requiring of someone in public debate to defend their human worth conflicts with the community’s obligation to assure all of its members equal access to public speech.” (this is also apparently the same reasoning Yale gave in 1963 when they allowed student protests to stop a speaker)

(sorry if this is kind of unwarranted i just read the article thinking it explained the concept really well and that it would be an interesting resource for anyone who follows your blog)

I am a huge fan of your style! It's absolutely lovely! How long have you been drawing and how did you develop your own style?

 ive been drawing my whole life! (always an odd question for me bc like…. yall stopped drawing after kindergarten? what did you do all day??)

as for developing style, my biggest piece of advice is just! keep! drawing! its been a bit hard to follow my own advice lately because my depression keeps fucking up my motivation and for the first time in my life i just dont feel like drawing, at all, ever. but if youre having similar motivational issues or if youre just starting out and you just arent feeling satisfied with your art, dont give up! the less you draw the harder it will be! i have a personal policy (that i dont actually remember to follow) where even if i dont want to, even if i hate how it looks, i have to draw at least once a day every single day. i swear it will improve your work if you do this. its hard, i know, i havent been doing it, but follow my advice not my example! (honestly im the embodiment of that quote “I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.” by Lewis Carol)

the other piece of advise i have is honestly…… steal art. 

“gasp! but Kate,” you say, “stealing art is bad and wrong!!” you say, “i know because of all those ‘art theft is bad and wrong’ posts i reblog!”

look. thats not what im saying, im not telling any of you to try to pass anyone elses art as your own, or use other peoples art without their credit. dont to that its bad and wrong. what im saying is LOOK at other peoples art and copy what they do. copying other peoples art styles is how every artist has learned for centuries. i started out drawing myself as a powerpuff girl or as a pokemon character just like everyone else. hell, i used to straight up print out and trace drawings i found on deviant art, which is a perfectly viable way to learn styles (muscle memory) so long as you dont try to pass it off as your own work then honestly its not stealing.

for example recently i was trying to draw these cat characters i had come up with, and i could not for the life of me draw these cats they were just turning out so ugly,

so i was like “well fuck this, i just need to find a simpler style” and by some kind of MIRACLE, while i was looking up drawings of cats i stumbled across this one blog, daily cat drawings. and it was like, holy shit this is it this is the exact style i need to draw my cats in. so first thing i did was try to follow some of their drawings exactly, not tracing but the closest you can get by sight. 

this is one of dailycatdrawing’s drawings:

and this was my attempt to copy it:

after i felt like i kinda had it down i drew that athena. NOT based off of any one of dailycatdrawing’s pieces, but still using the basics of their style. after that i felt confident enough using this style to draw the rest of my cats and they turned out great! naturally i had to draw hermes again because i couldnt just use such a blatant copy of another artists work, and it turned out even better than before!

which proves my earlier advice about how every single time you draw youre improving! its also important to note that even if you try to copy an artists style exactly you will probably never have it perfectly, and thats a GOOD THING! because it means that you arent truly stealing someone elses work, youre just using it as an example of ONE WAY a drawing can be good. by paying attention to MANY artists styles you can use all of them together to make your own unique style! even trying to copy dailycatdrawing’s style to a T i still ended up using elements from other artists and my own experience to change the style just enough to make it personal. looking at hermes’ face you can tell ive unintentionally taken some inspiration from lackadaisy’s art style, another artist i really admire. 

this turned out way longer than i meant it to, sorry, i always get so caught up in explaining things when people ask for advice. hopefully this helped someone!

i don’t understand why people think deh doesn’t handle mental illness well like the people who say this shit are majorly the people who’ve contrived a plot using the first sentence of the goddamn wikipedia page like. listen to/watch a show before you come after it without knowing jack shit

I feel like this should be a thing.

Yall remember *NSYNC?

Remember how they (along with the backstreet boys) were the most popular boybands worldwide during the late 90s and into the millennium?

Remember the member Lance Bass?

Remember how he dated Danielle Fishel and they were “so in love”?

Remember how after they broke up, he exclusively dated women?

Remember all the rumors he had about him not being straight?

Remember when TMZ and Perez Hilton started following him around?

Remember when shortly after all this he came out as gay 4 years after *NSYNC disbanded?


Remember the reasons he gave as to why he didn’t come out a lot sooner than he did?

Do you think people told his speculators back then that they were delusional just like they tell Kaisoo shippers that now?

I bet they did, but in the end:

I rest my case.

I drew the Seekers bc they make me happy, when they emote their wings go flap flap!!!! ;A;
