Transtrenders & the hijacked LGBTQ+ etc movement

Been getting a ton of info from a real trans - you know people that TRANSition and have Doctors scan their brains that show the difference between the only 2 genders. Not the regressive left academic idiotic gender study dipshits brainwashing the youth into some special snowflake trend,you guys do realize you are harming the real trans community right? Bravo on hijacking and twisting the LGBTQ+ movement. -___-; Go learn from trans Blair White or former trans Walt Heyer to educate yourself about it and not the bullshit you read form fat ugly feminists and SJWs with identity crisis issues that love to project it on to society on Tumblr and any other social media they’ve infected. And I don’t give a fuck about what Obama and Trudeau make legal (what I mean is screw your preferred pronouns, I prefer my preferred pronouns to use on you, everyone had equal rights under laws, now we don’t because they gave special protection laws to some groups and not to all, so you are not for quality, hypocritical liars), Trudeau is a piece of slime at the base of a toilet bowl and Obama also legalized propaganda in 2012 so the the regressive leftist media could lie to the American people and everyone else. He also bombs children, so I don’t trust their views on anything. They’re scum. Hillary is the same. I’m not a Trumper but well lesser of two evils I guess, I’m anti-establishment. FYI Bernie Sanders was a weak push over, no wonder the SJWs wanted him in.;)

Be careful if you carry a language that sounds like, “there comes a time where enough is enough,” or “I’m sick and tired,” “if they didn’t change by now, they’re never going to change” etc. The phrases above are all judgment-based. We didn’t learn to think this way from Jesus. We learned, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” from Jesus.

This doesn’t mean to be passive, some might argue. This means to carry the right heart and attitude toward other’s value in the light of God otherwise your actions won’t be from Jesus. Christ definitely acted on His words by laying His life down and showing people who they were by loving them in this way. He is not passive or a doormat.

"You have so many anon minions looking out for you how can i get some. " To the anon : Best advice? Be yourself. Post what you like and love and enjoy. The people who like those same things will find your Tumblr and follow you. Be true, be honest, ( but that doesn't mean for you to be a cruel, grumpy ...well... grump. cuz no one likes grumpy or mean or cruel people) live your life, share what you like and love and the people who like and love that same stuff will follow you. Simple!

Yeah I just kind of live and you guys just follow me, like thank you so much, but the only thing that I do that I would hope to get followers from is I guess when I make art, other than that you guys just show up out of no where, hahaha. Thank you.

Art is Selfish

I gave the keynote at the League of Utah Writers banquet last night. Despite my nerves, it seemed to go pretty well. Here are some of the snippets, if you’re interested.

“When people say “art is selfish,” sometimes what they mean is that writers are selfish, that we ignore the needs of those around us because we are busy doing the more important thing of art. The other meaning for the phrase “art is selfish,” the truer one is, I think that art demands everything from you. It wrings from you every bit of heart and soul that you possess and it is a harsh mistress. If you try to protect something from your art, it will show. It will never be as great as it could be if you threw yourself wholeheartedly into it. There is no privacy for an artist. And while I know some say that all art is political, I think the opposite is true, that real art has no politics for trying to put that into art always pushes the art out of its proper sphere, which is deeply personal.

What I am doing when I sit down to write a book is to recreate for someone else a specific experience of my own. I think about one moment when I felt one thing, and then I close my eyes and take a breath, trying to remember that moment as best I can. I sometimes type with my eyes still closed, so that I don’t lose focus. I search for just the right words to communicate that moment, even though it is almost always for another character in another world in a slightly different situation than my own. When I revise, I have to work on going back to that moment and doing an even better job recapturing it than the first time. The sharper and more precise the details, the more that my readers will feel like they are there with me, and with my character. The more I try to generalize or press my experience on others, the less they will connect to me.

In writing I have also found dramatically more success the more risks I take personally. By this I mean that the more of myself I put in the book, the scarier it feels to publish it. And as a result, the more people have read the book and loved it—or hated it. There is very little in between. I don’t get a lot of readers telling me they admired my language and telling me this or that thing that didn’t work for them. It’s either all in or all out. They go with me for the experience or they don’t. As a writer, you need to expect this and prepare for it. For me, it has taken me years of writing and publishing to peel back the layers of myself enough to get really deep into my own heart and soul and to figure out how to put that on the page for others to either love or mock or spit at. Most people spend their lives building more and more layers of protection around themselves, which makes sense. Writers and other artists do this at the peril of their own work. You must be vulnerable to create good art. The art is selfish because it doesn’t care if its creation or reception hurts you.

Art is also selfish because it demands that you give up pretensions to any kind of glory. You may or you may not ever get published. You may or may not make money from your writing, or become famous. You may or may not win awards. Art doesn’t care about any of that. You may care about it. I used to, though I think I’m doing a good job of recovering from it. Art is about the work itself, whenever you can fit it in.”



Hover Notes or ‘Floating Boxes’in Ao3

This is a fun option if you use, for example, phrases in other languages in your story. I often do, and this is a nice way to give translations without having to scroll to the end of the text, or putting them in the starting notes where people have to keep checking back – or where they spoiler the story!

HOWEVER. The drawback is that the floating boxes only work when a ‘mouse’ is ‘hovered’ over the marked text. They do NOT show up on tablet or phone screens, so you’ll still need to put a list of translations in the notes for readers using those devices.

Let’s have an example. 

“Qu’est ce que tu veux?”

Now if you speak French, you might know that means “What do you want?”

But not all of your readers will know that. So, you offer them a translation. And since the boxes don’t appear unless you hover directly above them, I usually add a Beginning Note to the chapter that reads something like this;

‘Hover over italicised foreign language text for translations! (Mobile and tablet users please see the Ending Notes)’

In HTML mode in Ao3, (if you try this in Rich Text mode you will get a horrible mess so don’t) the line with this example would appear as:

<p>“<em>Qu’est ce que tu veux?</em>”</p>

To add the floating box with the translation, you would select the words to be translated (that is, Qu’est ce que tu veux?) and paste in the following HTML.

<span title=“What do you want?”>Qu’est ce que tu veux?</span>

The whole line will now read:

<p>“<em> <span title=“What do you want?”>Qu’est ce que tu veux?</span> </em>”</p>

Review your work, hover over the part that requires translating, and you should see the following:

And you’re done!

I tend to set up a Word doc with all the <span> lines I want to use created in it, and then when the time comes, just copy/paste them into Ao3. Saves lots of time!

The other night. I was mean to this guy, but only because he was doing this thing that I’ve heard about in the [Neil Strauss] book The Game. We were all seeing a show and he comes up and he was doing that compliment-criticism thing, where you say you like my hair then you say, ‘Where did you get that hairdye? I can see your roots’. It’s a thing guys do if they’re trying to hit on a girl and they want to bring her down a bit so she craves their positive attention. So I kind of went off on him like, ‘You think people don’t know what you’re doing? You legitimately think I’m an idiot. Everybody’s read that book!

things you can do for Poussey

I’m seeing people wanting more reaction to what they did to Poussey, and here are some things I learned after Lexa.

  • Organize a trend (and for this I mean >organize<, not just start tweeting something before talking to people)
  • Tweet right now with #PousseyDeservedBetter about what happened and tag @OITNB @Netflix
  • Contact Netflix https://help.netflix.com/contactus?locale=en-US
  • Rate the show and write reviews
  • Spread Awareness. Talk about what happened, share posts and tweets, explain how you feel about it, explain to people about the trope Bury Your Gays.
  • Share articles about what they did and how it was bad.
  • Tag OITNB writers, ask for explanations and make them know what it means. As always: be kind.
  • Make posters, images, gifs and things that can bring attention to it.
  • Organize the fandom. Organize. the. fandom.
  • If you want to make any other initiative, do it. Just do it. A fandom is not a mysterious entity doing things from above, is you. Think about what is your message and how you can make noise, and do it.
  • Ask for help.
  • Celebrate Poussey. We’re united by passion. Why this character is important?

Remember that the fight after Lexa didn’t happen in a day, and it was only possible because fans worked like hell to bring attention and deal with problems.

If you’re a fan affected by OIT/NB you can start with the list above, and I’m here if you need help. 

a tip: consider that, different from a tv show like the loo that everybody watched 3x07 in the same day and felt the pain because of it, people are watching OITNB in waves. Only people that could binge watch finished it. The noise about Poussey today is much bigger than it was on friday, and it will keep growing as more people watch. so plan accordingly.

Take care of yourself and be kind.

“It’s ridiculous that we get these old guys with young women draped round them. When I started Doctor Who and we were doing photoshoots we’d be asked if Jenna could just lie down there while I, you know'— he leaps up and acts out a young woman sprawled coquettishly about while he gets to stand and look powerful over her. ‘I had to say, ‘Look, that’s just not what we’re about. The relationship between my Doctor and his companion is one of deep love. But it’s a strange sort of platonic bond. It becomes clearer and more moving as this particular series goes on.’

'Of course [the TV industry]’s sexist. Most of my peers have partners their age, so if we have a dinner party with a bunch of actors, the wives or partners are largely the same age. Then you see your friends on screen and they are suddenly with some extraordinary young lady who wouldn’t be at the dinner party. It’s ridiculous.’

'It is true that women reach a certain age when people decide that they’re not useful anymore as actors. There are a few significant theatrical roles that they might be viable for. That’s not fair, it’s not right, it’s not a proper reflection of what goes on in life.’

I don’t hate Valentine’s Day. Just because I’m single does not mean I hate on a day where the world is meant to be a kinder place. We need days where people are just kind to one another. What I do hate about Valentine’s Day is the fact that it’s marketed to be the one day out of the year where people are supposed to show their love for their significant other. You shouldn’t need a specific day to show your love for somebody else. You are capable of doing that just as easily on any other day of the year as you do on February 14th. If you’re in a relationship, you probably don’t need that extra loving on Valentine’s Day. You likely need it on days where you are feeling down about one thing or another. In my opinion, showing love to the person you love by way of a grand gesture for them, it’s much more meaningful when it’s done out of your goodwill and heart, not because the calendar or society is telling you to. I’m not saying you shouldn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, because you should. If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend in your life currently, celebrate that day with them and be happy, but remember to love them a little extra every day. Never allow the person you love to feel like it needs to be a special occasion for you to show your love to them. Show them how much you love them on a daily basis.


Emma Watson is one of the youngest and most successful people out there. Her charm, kindness, and positive outlook on life make her a beacon. She is an ambassador in campaigns for equality for women. In addition, she’s an amazing actress with a knack for showing others who they really are. These are 10 lessons that she has taught us Career Girls about what success means, how to achieve it, and more.

Success does not depend on age, or have a deadline.
Success came to Emma Watson, earliest and most notably, in the form of the Harry Potter movies. She has proven that you can achieve success in whatever you do, no matter your age. In addition, her success didn’t end with the hugely popular movie franchise: she has acted in many more things and continues to reach high levels of success in everything she does.

Be humble about your success, but take credit where it is due.
Emma has taught us, through many interviews about her success, that you can’t be afraid to be proud of your accomplishments. This applies to every part of your life-pat yourself on the back when you’ve done something and succeeded! At the same time, you shouldn’t let success overrule your life: she says, “It can throw your balance off a bit” (Movie Pop News, 2013). Don’t let your success-or your attempts to achieve it-control your entire life.

Be who you are.
If you ask Emma Watson what her goals were in portraying the character Hermione Granger, she will tell you lots of things that all center around girls being proud of who they are: “…told girls that it’s okay to be slightly bossy, that it’s okay to be studious and nerdy.” Emma Watson has taught us that in order to find success, you have to embrace yourself and be you to your fullest potential.

Don’t lose sight of your dreams and goals.
Emma has shown that your goals are achievable, and that once you’ve achieved success in something, you can still strive for something completely different that is a success in its’ own way. For example, although she is a major success in the acting world and in being an ambassador for women, she achieved her dream of a college degree while still maintaining a successful career.

Stand up for what you want, and be willing to work for it.
Speaking of her college degree, Emma Watson could’ve gone to any college she wanted to, and in addition, with her current success, she didn’t necessarily need a college degree. However, since it was something she wanted, she wasn’t afraid to go for it and get out of her comfort zone.

Don’t allow a fear of failing to curb your attempts to be successful.
An amazing quote by Emma Watson is as follows: “I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.” She has taught us Career Girls many valuable lessons, but this one could possibly be the most important. By letting a fear of being a failure stop you from trying, you are shooting down all chances of you becoming successful.

Be different.
One of the biggest ways to be successful is to stand out from the crowd, and Emma Watson embodies this. In an interview with Elle, she said “Don’t feel stupid if you don’t love what everyone else pretends to love”. Embrace your personality and use it to make people around you stop and listen to your unique message.

Be grateful for those around you and for the ‘stepping stones’.
Emma Watson is constantly grateful for the years she spent acting as a child, in the Harry Potter films, and more. She is aware that she wouldn’t have the success she has without those films. We should all recognize what and who have helped us to achieve success.

Don’t sacrifice your values to please someone.
Emma has said, “The saddest thing for a girl to do is to dumb herself down for a guy.” This applies to more than that. Don’t change or act differently so that you will achieve success-true success is built on honesty and humility.

Hard work is the foundation of success.
Emma’s constant pushing of herself to the next level shows how drive and determination are the keys to achieving success. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to be successful, without letting go of what’s important to you or covering up who you truly are. ©

hello everyone! a question that I get a lot is how to build and keep up with good study habits. here are a few things i’ve learned over the years that may help you create your own positive habits!

what are good study habits?

when you look at people that you think have it all together, it’s probably because they have some combination of the following habits:

start early

starting your work early – and not putting it off until the day before – means that you have more time to do the project and can then do it better, are more relaxed, and have more time to do other (more fun!) things.

do a little everyday

instead of a lot all at once. studies show that you gain knowledge best over time, and not by cramming all the info the night before. plus, by doing work for a certain amount of time it becomes a habit, instead of an afterthought.

stay on schedule

if you don’t already have a planner that you keep up with, go get one. right now. i’ll wait. but forreal – having a plan and sticking to it is essential to having a successful study session, and making the grades you want. make a habit of updating your planner with assignments and deadline, as well as times you need to study, as they come up and check it every morning to see what’s on tap for the day.

don’t overwork yourself

the fastest way to get burnt out is doing too much too soon. give yourself breaks to relax. for me, this means meals, anytime after 7, and sundays are study free zones – find your balance between productivity and downtime.

these are just a few examples of good habits that can lead to good grades, but play around and find a way to make your habits work for you. 

how to form habits

make a plan

decide what habits you want to form, and figure out how to make it happen. 

get started!

the best time to start a new habit is right now. 

stick to it.

this means make it something you enjoy somehow. do you like to draw? then try bullet journaling to make keeping a planner fun. take your daily study sessions to your favorite coffee shop so you look forward to it everyday. set a timer if you need to, but whatever it takes make sure you don’t skip a day.

never underestimate the power of a simple habit! making your bed can make your day, so get to it and go build a life you love!

but like after the 100 my standards are so high that all other shows will have to step up their game in order for me to even consider watching them at all.

like what do you mean there aren’t any badass females? no queer women in love ruling over the world? the biggest evil mastermind isn’t a woman either? where are all the poc characters in the position of power?? no platonic m/f friendships? interracial couple is not the one with the healthiest relationship on the show that literally everyone and their mom ships? sorry mate, not interested.

Claudiu Petre (left) and Adrian Rugina (right) - the names of two heroes. Two normal people, like me and you, who instead of saving themselves after they escaped the fire of Colectiv Club in Bucharest, they went back to save others - and sadly, they died.

I want the world to know them! I want the world to know, whenever they lose faith in this world, that out there there are people who will go beyond, below and above to give their lives for the right thing to do and that is, whenever hardship hits, lay a hand to the one in need, next to you. And they did it. With no second thoughts, even if it costed their lives.

Thank you, you two! Thank you for showing us what it means to be human and what courage in the face of death looks like!

You will forever be remembered as our heroes!
