why isn't this being talked about

Yuuri following Viktor around while taping and narrating like a nature show
  • Yuuri: *getting off plane in Russia, taping himself and Viktor* You guys, I realized most of you have never seen a Viktor Nikiforov in it's natural habitat, so I'm gonna start a series as I experience it.
  • Viktor: *laughing* Are you kidding me?
  • Yuuri: *dead serious* Nikiforov's apparently find things less believable when they're in Russia. *tapes Viktor laughing* and has a laugh just as beautiful.
  • Viktor: *turns bright red as he laughs and walks away from phone *
  • .
  • Yuuri: *Taping Viktor who is fussing over Yuuri's bruised feet* It seems a Viktor Nikiforov in it's homeland is far more fussy than in Japan.
  • Viktor: *looks up with a serious look* A Viktor Nikiforov doesn't care where we are, you need to take care of your beautiful feet.
  • Yuuri: *wiggling his toes* Ooooo, a Viktor Nikiforov in Russia has a /foot fetish/
  • Viktor: *shoves camera away laughing*
  • .
  • Yuuri: *taping Viktor trying to whip the smoke away from a triggered fire alarm* I'm here with a Viktor Nikiforov, this particular one has forgotten how to live in it's own territory.
  • Viktor: *looks at him, before whipping the phone* I have not! *goes back to it*
  • Yuuri: it's really quite sad to see one so far out of it's depth.
  • Viktor: *in a whine* Yuuri, come help!
  • Yuuri: *walks over to table, drags a chair underneath the alarm*
  • *gets on chair, turns off the alarm with a simple press of the button* *pans to an embarassed but smiling Viktor*
  • Viktor: You can't be serious.
  • Yuuri: *amused* Deadly
  • .
  • Yuuri: *obviously hiding behind the couch while Viktor and Yuri set up the Xbox one* This is an incredible scene, a Viktor Nikiforov and a Yuri Plisetsky struggle with their own gaming system.
  • Yuri and Viktor: *different variations of* Shut up, we've got it!
  • Yuuri: *dive rolls behind chair* it seems both have become aggressive in their confusion upon spotting me.
  • Viktor: *laughing*
  • Yuri: what the fuck is happening?
  • Yuuri: The Plisetsky is asking questions that I don't have answers for.
  • Viktor: Yes you do, don't lie!
  • Yuuri: *aggressively points camera at Viktor*/No I don't!/
  • Yuri: Why are you talking about us like you're in the wild?
  • Yuuri: I mean, isn't being around Russians akin to being in the wild?
  • Viktor: *lies on his back on the floor while he laughs*
  • Yuri: is this a thing? Like for fans?
  • Yuuri: No, they're for me, I like rewatching them.
  • Yuri:
  • Yuuri: *straight facing it like a champ*
  • Viktor: *crying*
  • Yuri: Are you okay?
  • Yuuri: *giggles in a moment of weakness* It seems the Plisetsky and Nikiforov have abandoned their task.
  • Viktor: *screams in his fit of laughter*
  • *video ends*
The Winchesters watching Sherlock
  • *Scene with gay subtext*
  • Dean: Oh come on! These guys are like so in love with each other!
  • Sam: ...
  • Dean: I mean... The way they stare at each other! This isn't heterosexual! How can John not see that he's in love with Sherlock?
  • Sam: Dean...
  • Dean: I mean, there's nothing wrong about being bisexual. And there's nobody who cares for him like Sherlock does. Love isn't about genders, right? Why is he so scared of being in love with him?
  • Sam: ...
  • Sam: Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

i--probably--hate--you  asked:

I would also like to point out that not all AZA accredited zoos are good and live up to the AZA standards. The Memphis, TN zoo is one of them. They're very lacking in terms of space for their animals. The cats are often in small enclosures and pace around so much that the ground has ruts in it from their pacing. I know that repetitive behavior isn't always a bad thing, but to the point of having ruts in the ground? The elephants also look malnourished. They have very saggy skin.

So, yesterday we were talking about how as a guest it’s really hard to make judgement calls about the animals in a zoo because you don’t know anything about their history or how they’re being cared for, and that that’s why it’s really important to ask staff when you’ve got concerns? This ask is a pretty good example of that. 

I reached out to some Memphis staffers after receiving this ask, and was totally honest about why: I said we’d been discussing zoos on my blog and that someone had written in with a couple of specific concerns. Within a day or two, I’d been put in contact with the correct keepers to get answers to my questions.  

What you’re likely seeing as abnormal pacing in the big cats is anticipatory behavior, since that’s a very common thing their animals do when they can see or hear keepers near their exhibit. Trails do wear down naturally in exhibits if animals have preferred walking paths, more so in wet periods such as spring, and in older exhibits the routes most commonly taken by residents are fairly well developed. Since you didn’t specify what species of big cat you were referring to, I wasn’t able to get more specific information, except that there is one big cat who does display some abnormal pacing behavior due to some of her history and that the staff are aware of it and actively working on it. 

I couldn’t find any good photos of their cat exhibits to embed in this post as an example, but what I did see when searching google for images is that almost all of the photos of their cats are taken on perches in the exhibit, such as logs or rock outcroppings. It’s important to remember that for large cats, vertical space is just as important a factor as horizontal space - an exhibit that seems too small in square-footage may in fact have a large amount of usable space comprised of climbing structures, hammocks, and hidden perches. 

As to the elephants, they have saggy skin because they’re, well, elephants - and in one case, one of the oldest elephants in North America. AZA also recently did a large elephant welfare survey that’s being used to improve their elephant care standards, and according to the scale for that study the elephant at Memphis are in good body condition for their age and size. What’s more, they’re in phenomenal health: the Memphis Zoo staffers have been running a metabolic study on the three elephant ladies at their facility, so they’ve got the data to back up that claim. 

I would hazard a guess that if you’d taken the time to ask any Memphis staffers while on grounds, or to reach out to their social media team with questions after leaving, you’d have gotten the same information that I did. I know people really want to think they can make informed judgement calls about the welfare of animals in zoos, but unless you happen to have personal animal management experience with that specific species, it’s probable that you’re going to be completely off-base. Especially at AZA zoos, assume there’s information you don’t have and something you’re probably seeing, and ask a keeper for clarification.

i'm jikook biased (don't care about the shipper drama though it's ridiculous) and all this talk about their weight especially jimin has been triggering me hardcore. like people saying jimin is too thin now and jungkook is getting chubby (he really isn't, he's just getting really muscled) is just so. i get people being concerned about jimin but it sucks when ppl keep calling him too thin. mainly because i really hate eating disorders and i really don't wanna think about him even maybe having one.

Well…It’s a complicated thing here. Let’s see why people are worried, foremost. We’ve seen him in many eras, and in this one he looks really thin, he looks skinnier than in bst era, for which we know that he lost 7 kilos, he admitted himself he had no strength since he lost his muscles. Jin said that as hard as he tried to tell Jimin to eat with him, Jimin was too stubborn to accept. When your close friend tries to make you eat something, I don’t think there’s nothing wrong.

The friend word was used a lot this issue and surprisingly no one was harmed while saying it. Progress is being made.

I can get that stuff would be stressful. But I mean, I looked for a long time through the asks and saw a single rude comment. I have a lot of friends that are fans of you as well and I haven't heard anyone getting mad over people sending death threats. Which I think they would. And even if that's been happening, people being so immature about it, then why react like this? How is it proving that you're any better? I don't want to insult you man I just... this isn't a good way to deal with it.

I’m not that kind of person who likes to make dramas just by a silly and pointless thing.
And I’m not telling that I’m better than others. That’s immature.

Is not a good way to deal with it making a 15 minutes of video insulting people and crying and showing frustration and showing a bad impression of myself. That’s also immature.

I talked with Camila, she even supported me about doing that video…because…is just something funny! Also I even showed the video to the Storyshift creator (There was a little misunderstanding about using her AU, but we could solve that situation and it was cool)

If there’s people who doesn’t have any sense of humor or are really sensitive, I can’t change their point of view. But I can invite them to unfollow me and stop watching my content if that is really offensive for them.

I prefer taking those bad comments and suggestions with humor because I prefer make people laugh. Fortunately they don’t have to deal with all the pressure I’m having right now. 

Also, if I want to use another AU or character for the real project , I will contact with the creator. I’m not just taking a character because yes. Everything has a way to be when you’re using characters from other people and getting some money with them.

Genuine question but why the obsession with Olicity/Felicity? Olicity isn't liked by the majority and Felicity went from being a loveable character to DCTVs most hated thanks to Olicity.

I get a lot of tweets and posts and whatnot from people who talk about “the majority” of viewers or whatnot.  I work on the show and I don’t have access to that kind of market research.

Why are you attacking finn jones for, hating a character is one thing, but wishing bad on an actor isn't necessary, I met him at comic con and he was pretty nice.

where did I wish him bad? Are you talking about me wishing colleen was the iron fist? That’s just me being fed up with the racist tropes of having a white iron fist period. Like I’m not attacking him but let’s be real here you Finn Jones fans live in a cloistered bubble of white supremacy where white people can be the best of everything including non white cultures. So no I’m not attacking Finn I’m just pointing out he shouldn’t have this role in the first place.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering why BPDfamily I'd not a good resource for those of us with family members with BPD? My younger brother has BPD, and I only recently found the site. For me, it's been a way of feeling less alone, but if the site isn't a good resource I would love to know why so I can find a better community. Thank you in advance

Basically, that community is guilty of a number of things:

  • Armchair diagnosing anybody they know who is a bit difficult. MANY posts talk about their “undiagnosed friend” and the symptoms they explain could be anything from anxiety to just being a shitty person. But the community on this website encourages this, and encourage anyone abusive to be “diagnosed” with BPD.
  • They encourage a very heart heartless way of “dealing” with people with BPD. While there is not one way to “deal” with us, these people encourage “cutting them off for your own good” and other behaviours that are, ironically, abusive. 
  • They have been known to block people who actually have BPD. If a person with BPD is on their site and replies to a post, just to give a bit of insight from their side, they after often blocked without warning. This has happened to me, and to two other people I know. 
  • The way they talk about borderlines is very demeaning. “I’m suffering from a borderline” “how can I get rid of my borderline?” Things like that.
  • They also try to find connections with “bad” behaviours and borderlines. Some of the most replied to posts I’ve seen are things such as “how many times has your borderline ex been married?” “borderline and shoplifting connection?” “any hope for children of borderline mothers?”
  • And here’s a lovely little excerpt on one for breaking up with a borderline partner:  “If you believe that your BPD partner was experiencing the relationship in the same way that you were or that they are feeling the same way you do right now, don’t count on it. This will only serve to confuse you and make it harder to understand what is really happening. When any relationship breaks down, it’s often because the partners are on a different “page” – but much more so when your partner suffers with borderline personality disorder traits. Unknown to you, there were likely significant periods of shame, fear, disappointment, resentment, and anger rising from below the surface during the entire relationship. What you have seen lately is not new - rather it’s a culmination of feelings that have been brewing in the relationship.”
  • Basically: they paint all BPDs with a broad brush, encourage behaviour that is abusive but don’t see it that was because it’s to borderlines, they assume every borderline is the same, they encourage people in any sort of abusive relationship to diagnose their abusers with BPD (or another personality disorder such as NPD), they refuse to listen to people with BPD unless that person is agreeing with them, and make us out to be soulless and life ruining demons who only pretend to love you.

It’s just… really promoting the stigmas that are wrong and that we have to fight so hard to get rid of.

I hope you can find a community with a more compassionate outlook. Good luck.

anonymous asked:

Hello Steph! I hope you can read this. Isn't it suspicious that John's neighbour turned out to be in the same crack den than Sherlock. I mean, how many crack dens are there in London? Which were the odds of both being in the same? The universe became lazy?

Hey Nonny!

Yeah, I’m of the group of people who believe that Sherlock intentionally went to that crack house. My thought is he was going to multiple ones, but found this one with John’s neighbour, probably talked about John to the boy (hence why the boy thinks John isn’t there for him, but for Shezza), and knew it would eventually come to John finding him. He wanted John to find him, I think. A cry for John’s attention.

The fandom has had a lot of discussions as to why Cassandra hates Eugene so much, but have we really discussed why Eugene is also so antagonistic towards her? I’m not just talking about when Cass starts a fight and he bites back, I’m more so talking about HOW he bites back and how he views her even when she isn’t around.

It’s easy to say “well she’s just so mean to him so of course he is gonna argue back with her” but we HAVE seen moments where Eugene starts first. One being when she yells to her why Rapunzel is lying to him in the movie, and often whenever she isn’t even in the room. It’s pretty rude and gossipy honestly, and if it were just about their arguments I don’t think he would spread that out to the whole kingdom. It isn't just arguing back, I truly think dislikes her as well outside of her treatment towards him, and ALL of these insults have one common denominator. Coldness.

He consistently uses words like heartless, icy, dark, and often implies that she has no compassion or sensitivity. He pretty much sees her as completely devoid of any emotion. If anything, he sees her as the anti-Rapunzel. And we KNOW how much he loves Rapunzel, so this complete opposite view with Cassandra kind of implies he would dislike her even if she didn’t do anything to him from the start.

Honestly, we as an audience know that Cassandra isn’t heartless. She is very much filled with excitement around Rapunzel and for what she does as a fighter. She shows fear, happiness, and fun with Rapunzel and her weaponry. She isn't an open book, but she enjoys her company and has a good time and just takes things very seriously and likes having structure. She only seems to act more composed and noncaring when she is around Eugene, because of how much she dislikes and distrusts him.

It’s kind of obvious why Cass hates Eugene, but I find it more interesting as to why Eugene doesn't like her. Why does someone being emotionless bother him so much? He actually gets ANGRY with her when she doesn’t want to talk about her past, which I think was pretty selfish of him because it’s very personal stuff. I think it’s more interesting to delve into both sides since they seem to be mutually toxic to each other. It’s not good to say “well SHE started it, so his behavior makes sense and is excused!” Nothing gets solved that way, especially when its stuff THIS petty they argue over.

How about a chlonath response to other weddings (ie djwifi, Adrienette, even Maylene and Ivan)? I could see her getting very worked up about others getting married when she isn't. I also see him being very amused by that.

I combined this with @maerynn-blog​‘s suggestion, “clonath preparing their wedding???“

“This is gross.”  Chloe set down her empty champagne glass, scowling.

“Not everyone can afford Dom Perignon, Chlo.”

“Stupid tomato.”  She rolled her eyes.  “I wasn’t talking about the champagne, though now that you mention it, it is subpar.”

Nathanaël’s lips twitched in amusement.  “This is not gross, this is sweet.”

“They’re being nauseating again.”

“They’re newlyweds.  This is their wedding reception.  They’re supposed to be nauseating.”

“Why am I here?”

“Because you’re not actually the raging bitch you want everyone to think you are.”

“You’re such a pain sometimes.”  She picked up her champagne glass and scowled into it.  “Why is this still empty?  If I have to watch Ivan and Mylene hang all over one another, I’m not going to do it sober.”

Nathanaël plucked the glass from her hand and stood, snickering.  “Heaven forbid.”

Her eyes narrowed.  “Watch it, Kurtzberg.”

“Chloe, why aren’t you dressed?”

“I’m not going.”  She walked away from the door without bothering to invite him in.

He came in anyway, closing the door behind him.  “Of course you are.  You’ve already done your hair and makeup.  There’s no way you’d let that go to waste.”

“I’ll go somewhere else.”  She put a perfectly manicured hand to her flawless coiffure with a sniff.  “This effort would be wasted on them, anyway.”

“Too bad, Chlo.”  He tugged her up from her couch, grinning.  “Come on, get dressed.  It’s time to go mingle with the commoners.”  He put a hand to the small of her back and gently pushed her towards her room.  She went, grudgingly.

“Ugh, gross.  Why do you keep dragging me to these things, Kurtzberg?”

“Because I love to torture you.”  He leaned an arm on the door frame, and smiled down into her beautiful, scowling face.  “And because I know you secretly want to go.”

She slammed the door on him, and he jerked back with a laugh.  

Chloe emerged a few minutes later in a lemon yellow cocktail dress, tucking her cell phone into a small white clutch and grumbling about interfering tomatoes, and Nathanaël allowed his gaze to rake over her appreciatively.

“You look lovely, Chloe.”

“I always look lovely, Kurtzberg ,” she shot back, but a blush darkened her cheekbones and she couldn’t look him in the eye.  She huffed.  “You do know that Alya and Nino are going to be even more gross than Ivan and Mylene were, don’t you?”

He grinned at her, amused and not at all fooled by her bluster.  “I have a whole bottle of champagne in the car, just for you.  It’s yours, if you can make it through the ceremony.”

“Of course I can make it through the ceremony,” she scoffed, snatching her wrap from the back of a chair.  “And the reception, too.  Keep your champagne, Kurtzberg.”

He hid a grin behind his hand, and followed her out the door.

“It’s not enough for him to make me be here.  Oh no, he had to make me a part of the damn thing!”  Chloe peeked out of the small room to the side of the vestibule, and glared at the people filling the church.  “He hates me, doesn’t he?”

Nathanaël’s lips curled into a smile. “No, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t hate you.”

“Then why would he do this to me?”  She threw herself into his arms on a wail.  “Adrien knows I hate these things.  I can’t just duck out when I’m a member of the bridal party.”

He shook with suppressed laughter.  “I am too, don’t forget.  And we’ll be seated together at the reception.”

“It’s the only reason I agreed to this nonsense, really.”

“Mm-hmm.”  He tipped her chin up and kissed her languidly.  “The fact that he’s your oldest friend had nothing to do with it.”

She scowled, both because he was right, and because he’d stopped kissing her to speak.  “Shut up and kiss me, Kurtzberg.”

He grinned against her mouth, and kissed her again, more briefly.  “So is this why you dragged me in here?”  He nipped at her lip, then soothed it with another kiss.  “We can’t get carried away.  It’s going to start soon, and I’d hate to muss your hair.”

“Ugh, don’t remind me.”  She pulled away and returned to the door, frowning when she saw that the bridal party was gathering in the vestibule.  “Shit. I think we need to get out there. This isn’t going to be as long as the last one was, right?”

“No idea,” he said cheerfully.  “Come on, let’s go get in line.”

“You’re lucky I love you.  You and Adrien, both.”

He grinned at her back, thinking much the same thing.

“Hey, Chlo?”  

She glanced up at him as they meandered along the Seine, and wondered at the strange quality of his voice.  She raised her brows expectantly.

“Will you let me drag you to another wedding?”

She groaned.  “Another one? Who the hell is getting married this time, Alix and Kim? I thought they eloped!”

He stopped walking and caught at her hand, turning her to face him.  “I was hoping it would be ours.”  She gaped at him as he dropped to one knee, there in the middle of the sidewalk, and produced a small polished wood box from his pocket.  He opened it to reveal a beautiful, yet understated ring in a bed of black velvet.  A flawless yellow cushion-cut diamond sat perched in the center of a white gold ring, flanked by two, smaller, equally flawless trapezoid white diamonds.  It wasn’t large or flashy, but it was from him and it was perfect.  

“This isn’t the ring you deserve, but it’s yours—along with my heart.  I love you, Chloe.  Will you marry me?”

She looked from the ring to his anxious face, and put a hand to his cheek.  “Oh, you stupid tomato.  Of course I will marry you.”

“Oh, thank god!”  He surged to his feet and captured her mouth in a hungry kiss, almost forgetting the box he still held in his shaking hand.  

She pushed him back, and held her left hand out to him, wiggling her fingers excitedly.  “Aren’t you forgetting something, Kurtzberg?  I want my ring!”

I love Harry for who he is, not for the Harry I can put on a pedestal.

He’s flawed, he’s more normal than we pretend he is, and he’s also just as talented as we know he is. He’s a human being. He isn’t an innovator at everything he does, sometimes he’s just Harry.

okay so i just read all your tags on the Jake Zyrus post and it's exactly what i've been trying to explain to people! there's little to no LGBT+ representation in the Philippines and part of it is because of how being gay is viewed. to most Filipinos you're either gay (and you want to be a woman) or you're a lesbian (and you want to be a man) which obviously isn't true but to them there's no comprehending how you could be attracted to the same gender w/o wanting to be the opposite, you know?

^^^^ BIG YES!!! ^^^^

this is honestly so truee… and one of the biggest reasons why i never identified as gay when i was living in the Philippines.. cause the meaning we pinoys were socialised into learning was that. like talking about LGBT representation in the philippines, all of them are trans celebrities

like we dont have any representation for masculine gay men and feminine gay women in the Philippines.. (i bet Piolo Pascual and Enchong Dee are gay though) but yeah, we HAVE ZERO OF THAT. and i always loved being a man.. it just so happens i’m attracted to men and i tried so hard to fight off that feeling because not only i was raised in a Christian household, studied in Christian schools, and was living in a Catholic country but because i thought that “being attracted to men must mean i wanted to be a girl” and im like “no thats not me!” and I denied it for years growing up. and i would also like “date some girls” to try and deny it (thankfully ive never had sex with them lmao and i wouldnt anyway) 

and when i got to London UK at 16, and got exposed to the gay scene.. i was like hold on a sec.. there are guys here who are masculine or love being a man but love guys and im like SAME! so i really embraced it only when i found someone i identified as

like i had to explain this to my mom and grandma too because they asked me if i got married to a guy, would i be the girl or the boy? and i’m like.. we’re both boys! i’m a boy and we’ll both be boys. we’ll both be fathers. like i’m gay because i like boys but not because i want to be a girl. like it took them a while to understand but that’s the same thought my parents had initially. so it was a pain to come out too cause they thought they lost a son and im like… i’m still a man, you dont see me wanting to be a girl or ever acted that way; i’m still your son, i’m just attracted to men. and im glad my parents got what i mean ever since and have learned about it. surprisingly, my dad ended up being more understanding about it than my mom

but yeah, i’m so glad someone knows what im talking bout.. cause seriously the philippines has a LOOOOONG way to go when it comes to the LGBT community.. let alone being educated about it

lack of gender is still transgender tho. ace/aro isn't inherintly lgbp (presumably u were talking about ace aro correct me if i misinterpreted)

that’s what’s weird to me though!!!

like, why is it that seemingly any deviation from being cisgender is automatically considered trans (including a lack of gender), but only CERTAIN KINDS of non-het sexualities are included, and a lack of sexuality/attraction isn’t??

my question is what makes it different for gender than it would be for sexualities

i, a trans aro-ace, made a personal, untagged rant about an example of aphobe rethoric recycling terf rethoric. within two minutes a bunch of exclusionists found the post, my blacklist, and my inbox which they spammed with things from aforementioned blacklist. several cis people lectured me on how i was being transphobic for comparing the discourse surrounding "cis" to that around "allosexual" - idek why i'm telling u but i'm just... upset and my blog isn't safe to post to now so

god, I’m so sorry that happened to you. Sometimes they get so very nasty and the only sad, minor, consolation is it just proves that they are trying to silence you. I know that’s really shit comfort at times but keep being you, keep saying things you want to say, and there’s also no shame in not talking about things if it makes you happier. I do highly suggest you turn off anon, or turn it off long enough for them to lose your number, so to speak
