why do i bother posting anything

jellypumpkin  asked:

Why do people keep telling you that they think your eyes in your Froppy cosplay are scary? Like, even if they think so it's fukkin' rood to comment that on your post :T

I can understand I guess. I mean I love creepy/cute things, so it’s not a bother to me. But some people are particularly creeped out by eyes? But yeah I agree it’s still really rude to comment mean things. If you don’t have anything nice to say you shouldn’t say anything. Like my eyes aren’t actually that huge but what if??? what  if they were?? It would be so mean to say things like that.

It reminds me of Alison Harvard who has huge eyes, I think she’s beautiful but I’m sure she received a lot of bullying for her eyes. 

My 51 year old therapist mother LOVES Pokemon go

(Edit: my mom is only in here as brandy bc I imported a lot of my contacts from her phone and I haven’t ever bothered to change it. She and I get along perfectly, please don’t assume otherwise. I read tags and I see people doing it and it sucks to see)

(edit number 2: lay off on harassing me about my messages holy shit half of those were happy birthday texts from the day before and the other half were coupons. also depression makes it really hard for me to motivate myself to reply sometimes too. idk why i thought i could post this and nobody would find anything to pick at on this fucking website)

Hh this week is so bad for focusing its almost the end of school?? Why do we have to work?? Anyways can u do some ADHD lance headcanons if its not too much of an inconvinience thank

bro I’m still basking in my summer I’ve been on break for like a month now. I love being a graduated senior

  • Lance can’t leave anything alone lol.
    • Bug bites? Scratch ‘em.
    • Friend looking down? Bother them until they tell you what’s up.
    • Button?
  • He’s a SKINNY BOY because of his meds. Very lanky. That’s why his jacket has so many pockets in it; he likes to pack snacks like he’s a paranoid squirrel in the middle of a Canadian winter.
  • Lance was GOD TIER in his Creative Writing class because his brain is able to conjure up the most off-the-wall entertaining metaphors so his writing was always fun to read.
    • He’s not too hot at poetry though, but he’s trying.
  • Lance in every math class: Why are they teaching us this?? It’s not like we’ll ever use it.
    • Lance, five minutes later, staring at vectors or some shit flashing across his windshield as he dive bombs during a simulation: Aw, man. 
  • Don’t get me wrong though, he’s still good at math. There’s something comforting about how there’s always an answer waiting for you at the end of the problem. So much of life is based on subjectiveness, or preconceived notions, but math? You just have to work hard enough and focus long enough to get your prize. And Lance has determination in spades, lol.
    • That being said he’s either like, zipping through a complex problem because he’s hyperfocusing like a goddamn champ, or he’s using his fingers to count out 5 + 6 because he can’t remember what numbers look like in his head. #Relatable
  • Lance can speedrun his mouth like a goddamn champ without even thinking. Hours later, when he’s alone and in the shower, everything he said suddenly floods back in and he’s just like Why Am I Alive.
  • When he was a kid, a lot of his symptoms were passed off as him being a rowdy boy. And yeah, Lance IS a Rowdy Boy, but he also… lost a lot of time because he wasn’t diagnosed and helped sooner.
    • Lance, age 16: Y’know… If I’d been diagnosed as a kid and gotten my accommodations sooner… I bet I would’ve gotten into Honors Math in the sixth grade.
    • Hunk: Dude.
    • Lance, teeth gritted: I could’ve gotten that science award.
  • He’s really, really bad at remembering to take his medication. I mean like, once he’s settled into a routine he’s fine because he takes them automatically, but if there’s any sort of disturbance to his schedule… lmao.
    • Person: How do you forget to take your meds??
    • Lance: Well, the funny thing is, I take my meds to remember to take my meds. So you can kind of see how this can be a problem. Asshole.
  • Lance: Okay guys, let’s play a fun game called ‘Am I Zoning Out Because Of My Meds, or Is It Dissociation Hour?’
    • Pidge: This doesn’t sound fun at all.
    • Lance: Yeah well imagine living it!! lol

Alexander: Why is everyone staring at me?

Laurens: You just called general Washington dad!

Lafayette: You said “Thanks dad.”

Alexander: No I didn’t! I said “Thanks man.”

Washington: Do you see me as a father figure Hamilton?

Alexander: No! If I see you as anything, I see you as a bother figure, because you’re always bothering me.

Hercules: Hey, show your father some respect!

  • Mako: Oh, hey, chief. Did you get my report on the triad murder?
  • Lin: Yeah, I looked it over. Nice work.
  • Mako: Good. Thanks, mom.
  • Lin: ...
  • Mako: Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Asami: You just called Chief Beifong "mom."
  • Mako: What? No, I didn't. I said, "thanks, ma'am."
  • Lin: Do you see me as a mother figure, Mako?
  • Mako: No. If anything, I see you as a "bother" figure, 'cause you're always bothering me.
  • Korra: Hey, show your mother some respect!

Regarding the post about participation trophies:  I know this has been said before, but I want to reiterate.  If you reward a child equally for when they do good and when they fail miserably, they don’t learn “Oh, my failure is just as good as somebody’s success” and go on to be an entitled brat.  That’s not how the human brain works.  They learn “Nothing I do matters,” “rewards don’t actually mean anything” and “the outcome is going to be the same regardless of my behavior so why should I bother?”  The failure isn’t inflated in importance to match the reward.  The reward is devalued to match the failure.  And that’s why we have a generation of kids who are wracked with anxiety and depression and who are smarter and harder working than ever but don’t feel like they’re in control of their lives because nothing they do has any noticeable effect on their environment.  (This is also why these poor kids don’t freaking believe you when you try to compliment them)

Food for Thought

Just a bit of advice down below, take it or leave it… but there is a tendency in this community to go on the defensive (and even the offensive) when someone writes a post asserting different beliefs. No, I’m not talking about racist ideologies or anything like that. I’m talking about spiritual theory. Hell, I’m even talking about UPG (unverified personal gnosis).

Here’s a few fun activities people seem to enjoy when this happens:

  • blatantly ignoring “disclaimers” and related statements
  • skimming at lightspeed and presuming a full understanding
  • cherry-picking thoughts and phrases to justify an attack
  • absolutely misrepresenting what the author is saying
  • never asking for clarification when sincerely confused
  • shunning the author because how dare they think differently

Having said that, here’s my advice: when you come upon a post that ruffles your feathers (again, we’re not talking about racist ideologies, etc, so please do not twist my words), take a moment to sit with it and think about why it bothers you. Does a spiritual theory make you feel threatened? Why is that? Perhaps it’s that you aren’t as secure in your own beliefs as you thought, and this post just gave you a great opportunity to wrestle with that.

Seriously, that “intellectually threatened” feeling is good. I experienced it a lot, for many years, when I was growing from one belief system into another. In fact, I left my original belief system because my questions had no answers. Because I had no confidence in anything I had always just assumed was the truth. Ultimately, this drove me to seek more solid ground…

But I experienced that threatened feeling with every aspect of my current beliefs, too. For many years, as I said. I did reading and research that left me shaken. I panicked when confronted with oppositional choices gathered under the same general roof of spirituality. I had a lot of self-doubt, confusion, and frustration to work through. It was hard, but I didn’t run from it.

Sometimes I see beginners in this community who, when confronted with self-doubt, immediately run to the nearest experienced individual and plead with them for empty validation. What I mean by that is they pretty much flat out say, “Hey, I suspect you believe X theory, so could you please confirm that X theory is true? I idolize you, so if you believe it, then I know it’s the absolute truth.”

For the love of gods, beginners, please don’t do that. I know it may feel good for a second to have someone say, “Yeah, that’s absolutely true!” But you’re forgetting that those of us with experience under our belt have already wrestled with our truths and, overwhelmingly, feel absolutely confident of them. Truly, there is very little that shakes me these days. Some of you come to me and you want me to help you achieve that same level of confidence on the fly by simply telling you what’s right and what’s wrong. Whatever I say, you accept it because you trust me. That’s really sweet, but please don’t do that.

Allow yourself to be threatened. Allow yourself to be afraid. Allow yourself to be absolutely vulnerable in the face of mystery. I’m not saying don’t seek the experts for advice, but just… don’t make us your infallible prophets or shepherds. One day you’re going to look back and hate us for “misleading” you because your path took a different turn than our own, you know?

Just think about it. Food for thought, like I said. I’m not going to try and stop you if you decide it’s somehow more rewarding to be coddled and live in a safe, soft marshmallow world. I can understand the appeal, even though, for me, that’s not good enough in the long run. But hey, you do you, folks.

Yixing brushes a strand of hair away from your eyes and tucks it behind your ear. His smile doesn’t budge as he shrugs. “Maybe,” he nods, acknowledging your words, “but I want to do it this way. I want everyone to hear it from me, not some press release or Facebook post. Do you not want me to do this?”

“No,” you hum, “that’s not it. I just… I don’t know. I don’t want you to go out of your way doing something that might bring you more negativity.”

this is something that has been bothering me for a while

why is it that the majority of check please/nurseydex content on this site always insists that nursey is always in the wrong in terms of (potential) arguments with dex about privilege and the very different lives they live? why do y’all continue to create content where nursey finally has some sort of awakening to the advantage he has over dex financially, but no one mentions dex’s whiteness as an advantage that he has over nursey? 

why have i only seen one post that says anything about DEX waking up to the fact that aside from his financial status nursey has NO OTHER ADVANTAGE OVER DEX? why does dex never fucking wake up and realize his privilege as a white person in y’all fics/headcannons/etc.? nursey is canonically a biracial black person (also reminder: biracial does not always equal half white) and dex is white. dex has an immense amount of advantages over nursey bc of his skin color and i am so tired of that being overlooked. 

where is a fic where nursey sits dex down and explains that nursey may come from money, but dex’s parents never had to give him a talk about how to act bc of how he will be perceived as a black man? dex’s parents don’t have to worry about their children being the next hashtag on twitter as victims of police brutality. dex does not have to police himself in public bc of his race. dex will have greater chances of success than a nonblack person in the same financial situation. i could go on for days about this. 

and let me be very clear: i am not trying to downplay any struggles that dex has to go through, or the struggles of any poor white person, and i love dex tbh. but y’all have to realize that he is still incredibly privileged. and dex needs to realize this in fic/headcannons/etc. as well. and yes, they are fictional characters in a comic and some of y’all might not think it’s this serious but it is a real-life issue and tbh, to an extent some of it is a bit anti-black. please stop subconsciously making nursey the villain in any situation where he discusses these topics with dex.

tl;dr: stop overlooking dex’s advantages and privileges as a white person, and please include it in content y’all create.

WHY ARE YOU APOLOGIZE This isn’t a bother at all!! QoQ

Sorry for the lateness in posting this, I’ve been awful pre-occupied and I wanted to make sure I was coherent enough to give you proper thanks for this–It’s really wonderful~!

You did a fine job capturing her! All their designs are pretty open for wiggle room and I could tell who it was the moment I saw it in my inbox, so I think you did well~ 

Thank you so much for this–I’m glad I could inspire you and I’ll keep doing my best!

so many of the most iconic images from ‘the x-files’ feature nothing more or less than mulder or scully–or mulder & scully–viewed from behind as they study something extraordinary: an event that will change them, a place with potential, a phenomenon that cannot be explained. it’s such a thematically significant composition that it just about sums up the entirety of the show: the importance of searching (did you find what you were looking for? / no, but i found something i thought i’d lost: faith to keep looking); the importance of witnessing (why do you doubt yourself? / because my partner didn’t see them); and the importance of facing what comes (how can I see the future if it didn’t already exist? / then if the future is written, then why bother to do anything). for a brief moment we are voyeurs, watching these characters as the conspirators who threaten them do. they are outlined against the impossible, but they refuse to let it remain a nameless enigma… and that is the danger they pose.

i’ve seen maybe five posts lately along the lines of “dear asexuals: you can’t just expect people to stay in a sexless relationship!!!! some people NEED sex and if you can’t give it to them then they have every right to leave you”, as well as one particularly poisonous one which stated that pressuring people to be in sexless relationships was “abusive” 

i’m sorry, but…why are you saying this as though it’s news? as though it’s not something that ace people struggle with every day of our lives? as though we’re not consumed by anxiety every time we enter into a relationship because there’s a 98% chance that the other person will just ditch us as soon as they figure out sex isn’t on the cards? when you make posts like this, all you’re really doing is rubbing salt in the wound. scrolling down the ace tag only to be slapped in the face by a post telling me - in the most harsh and aggressive way possible - that my potential partners have every right to abandon me just for being myself is a horrible experience, and really rubs in the self-blame i experience after every failed relationship, every person that refuses to have anything to do with me after i explain that i can’t give them what they want. 

it’s true: no one has an obligation to stay in a relationship that doesn’t satisfy them. but why bother making a post abut it and then sticking it in the “asexual” tag - which, by the way, is meant to be a safe space - for a bunch of vulnerable people to see and be hurt by? what are you trying to achieve? 

Oh my days the negativity on here is just depressing. All you guys do, day in day out, is complain. Complain about the show. The characters. The show runner. The cast. It is beyond me. You’ve all got blinkers on and are blinded by hatred. I come on here for the gifs now and the occasional post, but you people are why I don’t bother as much. You suck the life out and soul out, i don’t know how you people are not depressed from the amount of complaining you do. I know people say they can post what they want and its their choice blah blah, agreed. But seriously? do you guys not have anything better to do than moan all day, every day, over something that isn’t even real. I’ll leave it at that. Rant over and heres a pretty #Olitz gif for you negative nancies to criticse.

The Email I Sent to Tumblr

Tumblr, we are all bothered by safe mode. It’s marking things that are perfectly fine as “Sensitive content”. And one thing that most of us find particularly bothersome is the fact that it’s marking LGBT+ posts as “Sensitive content”. We don’t believe that sends a positive message to anyone. This site has given us so much freedom in the past. Why are you censoring us now? It’s honestly very unfair. And you aren’t doing anything about the overtly innapropriate bots that follow minors, either. Please, let safe mode be an option instead of mandatory for people under eighteen. Certain parents are okay with their children looking at posts like some of the ones censored. Tumblr is not their parents. Next to none of us agree with this system. Safe mode isn’t censoring most nudity, either. Please make safe mode an option. Minors are smart enough to know what they shouldn’t look at.

anonymous asked:

"She never acknowledged that there were good and bad shippers, never." Because she doesn't want to encourage any shipping period Sophie. It's not her nature. Lol. But the issues that bother her, are clearly traits of bad and disrespectful shippers. Which there are a lot of! Especially on Instagram and twitter. Her issue is with the ones who sexualize her or disrespect her bisexuality. Those are the issues she's stated.

Then why do I feel personally attacked? I’ve always been respectful, never even address Lauren with anything, never commented on any of her posts, and yet I’m hurt. Why is that? There’s obviously a problem there, if her issues were so clear then I shouldn’t feel that way, I shouldn’t feel insulted since I’m not included in the disrespectful shippers, and yet I am, many of us are. Obviously something is wrong here.

People often ask me, why I bother to write books, post on my blogs or share anything concerning my life as an atheist. Why bother? Do you expect to change anyone’s mind? While it would be very cool if my words did wake someone up from their blissful religious ignorance, my true purpose is to my fellow non-believers, those atheists around the world who are not as well off as myself.

This is all for my fellow Atheists across this pale blue dot who are hesitant to make that first difficult and dangerous step out of the closet. That first step could cause them to be shamed by their own family, shunned by their people, and even arrested, tortured and murdered by their governments. It is for them that I do this work, so that I don’t take what I have for granted. I will continue speak my mind as often as I can regarding this issue for them.

They are the reason why I’ll never stop fighting the ultimate stupidity that is organized religion. Why I’ll never rest until my dying breathe.

You are not alone, there are more of us than you think.
