god i hate drag queen culture its deeply transmisogynistic & like arent people wondering why trans femmes explicitly hate it & are v uncomfortable w it (even knowing its transpositive history) and why mostly afab people & cis gay men are fans of it?? isnt that sketchy and worrying at all?? if i was into media that makes fun of femininity on amab people and explicitly calls it “entertainment” and knew that trans women widely hate it, i would be a little weirded out at least??
I was totally getting stuff done, and then the RBB Slack chat was its usual self, and this stupid thing was written…
Bucky wasn’t quite sure what he was looking at, and it turned out that staring wasn’t making the situation any clearer. Sam noticed the blank look on Bucky’s face, and the distant gaze in his eyes, and came to stand next to him.
“You still with us, killer?” Sam asked, pulling Bucky out of his head.
“Huh?” Bucky asked, turning his head quickly toward Sam, “Yeah, i’m just… What is he even wearing?”
Sam looked across the yard where Steve was painting some piece of furniture, and understood Bucky’s confusion.
As far as Sam could guess, he was in the tightest black button up shirt Sam had ever seen him in, which he had apparently only been able to close the bottom two buttons of, and seemed to be trying to hold them closed with a bright yellow belt. That was just the beginning.
Steve was also wearing yoga pants which hid exactly nothing, and that Sam was trying not to think about and failing at horribly. He was also wearing bright yellow rain boots that came halfway to his knees, and the yellow rubber gloves that were normally near the kitchen sink.
“Yeah… I can’t explain that either.” Sam finally admitted, continuing to stare alongside Bucky.
“That ass though.” Bucky said.
“And that chest.” Sam said.
“And the way the shirt makes a perfect window for his tits,” Bucky added.
Sam could only nod.
Sam pulled out is phone and snapped a picture, sending it to Nat.
‘How hard do you think it would be to get him into one of your old cat suits’, read the accompanying caption.
Her reply was immediate.
‘5 minutes. Just tell him it’s some new super stretchy fabric Tony designed and we’re wondering how stretchy it actually is.’
Ok, i just feel i have to get this off my chest, especially for the younger/newer users on this site. Supercorp is /the/ most toxic fandom i have ever seen in the 5-6 years I’ve had this blog. I’d even say that some of them are worse than superwholock at the height of its popularity. I just don’t want younger users seeing this and thinking it’s normal, IT’S NOT! Please, please, please don’t use the the supercorp fandom as your basis for how to approach other fandoms. They bully and attack and have no regard for the well-being (mental or emotional) of people who don’t agree with them over a tv show. It’s pathetic and sad and i just hope it hasn’t affected too many young users
People are saying that Tg isnt selling well anymore and thats why Ishida included a sex scene. Is that true?
Sounds like complete nonsense to me.
A very quick google search shows that Tokyo Ghoul:Re has been a best-seller for numerous consecutive volumes. Reports state Volume 10 sold over 500k volumes in two weeks. That seems to be consistent with previous volumes, so there is no indication of weak sales.
It also has a movie coming out, and a second stage play.
This indicates the franchise remains popular in Japan, and is financially successful.
More likely, Ishida intended a sex scene all along. We need to remember that Tokyo Ghoul is a Seinen work, intended for an adult male demographic. Sex scenes are common, and it’s a bit like being surprised that an R-Rated movie had a sex scene. Works intended for an adult audience, especially men, seem to be more likely to have sex scenes.
Besides, this is Ishida we are talking about. The man previously had a webcomic called “The Penisman” and long ago, a now-vanished webcomic called “The longing for sex”. The man is hardly the sort to be SHY about sexuality.
In terms of sex scenes, I think he did a fantastic job. It was intimate, emotionally charged, and let the characters be awkward and playful. We got little details, such as Kaneki being shy about his arms and fascinated by BEWBS.
I know some folks didn’t like it, and prefer to not have graphic sex in media they consume. That’s fine, but it really isn’t out of place for the category of fiction it occupies.
And there’s no indication that the series is doing badly, financially.
They should know he's a guy by now but anyways how are u doing today ?
// Well between dealing with a handful of people stealing, tracing, and otherwise reposting my art, telling me I’m wrong for politely calling them out and handling it like an adult in DMs, trying to help handle the #savebendy bullshit, people ripping off my designs for Lendy & Acute & Alice, having my characters misgendered repeatedly after already making a post on the matter, being insulted directly to my face on a handful of servers, handling some personal drama, and generally feeling alone in groups of people (not their fault) I’ve been… okay. Mostly just extremely tired and admittedly a bit pissy. I haven’t hardly eaten this week and today I can’t stop so if I don’t post a lot its because I’ve made myself sick, sorry in advance.
smh i’m trying to redecorate Wes’ loft and i realized i have like 0 rugs from cleaning out my cc a few months ago. i closed my game to go hunt for some but ended up downloading 200 items of cc.. none of them were rugs.
I NEED TO KNOW FOR SCINCE: would galra keef have panic attacks due to sensory overload cuz he's not used to noises being so loud or new eye sight and it all HURTS and no one can help because Shiro was the best at comforting him oh quiznack it hurts
*post s2 and keith got the galra transformation we all wanted*
oh yeah, he would be jumpy and flinch at everything. poor little guy doesnt know whats going on why everything hurts why everything is so LOUD.
and with shiro being gone, it takes a long time for the team to notice that keith is struggling.
first to notice is lance. you cant tell me that lance isnt observant and would totally do his best to make sure keith is okay. he tones it down for keith, he isnt nearly as loud around keith as he used to be. kinda throws the team meetings for a loop because theyre so used to lances loud input
the person to put it together next is hunk. hes usually the one to encourage lance and how loud he is by being loud himself. and since lance isnt being loud anymore, hunk isnt. then he starts thinking about WHY lance isnt loud anymore. sure lance and keith stand next to each other all the time, but the causal over the shoulder team hugs have lessened and lance is only loud when hes not with Keith. and then hunk has the aha moment™ and starts following lances lead.
pidge has already been researching glara-altean relations for science and figures somethings out about the galra. sure all their senses are way more sensitive than humans, but they also arent solitary creatures either. which makes sense because look at the size of their army. the only one to really fight alone was zarkon. and sendak doesnt count, he had people backing him. so pidge starts compiling a list of things about the galra, and hunk lets it slip that since keith turned galra hes been jumpy and moodier than normal, plus lance seems to have quieted down. -insert lightbulb moment here- and she starts to look up stuff that calm galra down.
allura and coran notice her research and offer what little information they can remember to help her along. keith is still apart of this team and they need everyone at full capacity to find shiro and defeat zarkon and lotor. soon enough they have a pretty comprehensive list of how to make your galra happy
they already know that keith likes to cuddles (a fact that he will deny to his grave but cmon keith youre not fooling anyone) and pidge gets the help of lance and hunk to transform the living room area into a cuddle pit. you know the area with the couches. and then once theyre done, lance grabs keith from his room, where the little monster has burrowed into his bed, away from everyone. like no keith youre coming out.
keith gets dragged to the living room, sees thats the lights are dimmed and the couches are covered with pillows and blankets. pidge hooked up a sounds system with hunk and corans help and was playing slow calming music. like the couches area is the place where everyone can just pile on top of each other and relax. but they also set a little place for keith to retreat to when he gets over stimulated.
pidge was able to find a nature documentary and she sets up a projector system and lets it play. like one of those documentaries that has the really good narrator and all is peaceful and you have to fight off sleep to watch it all the way through. im talking one of those.
and keith is just like you guys,, and commence group hug, led by hunk ofc.
then they settle down and just relax. they keep the living room like this until keith is comfortable with himself again and whenever they notice keith getting antsy again, one or two of the others (mostly lance) will just take him there and chill for a couple of hours, time willing ofc. but eventually it takes less and less time in the cuddle pit for keith to calm down and soon enough hes back to his normal self (well normal as he can be being a purple cat and all)
Bonus: when they find shiro again, he makes a joke about wanting a cuddle pit when he was going through that rough patch with his ptsd. lance pats him on the back and is like, dont worry, keith still uses it so he can share. ^^
The store I work in recently got refurbished. It was a relatively small store and hadn’t been updated since it was built some 60 years ago. We had signs up for months, detailing how it was changing, what was being changed, when the store would be closed, so on and so forth, leaflets were sent out with our paperboy to inform anyone who has newspapers delivered would still receive their papers as normal, as well as all the staff telling customers about it and warning them of closures and or anything that might be an inconvenience to them. But as everyone who works in retail will know, customers will always find something to complain about.
8 customers, complained that they wouldn’t get their papers and refused to pay for the days they wouldn’t receive them,even after getting their leaflets.
5 of those said customers went out and bought their papers somewhere else, then phoned up or came in and complained that they now have 2 of their papers and refused to pay for the ones we sent them, even though they were given leaflets, and told in store that they would still get their papers.
(This one I do feel kind of bad about) 1 woman, who I’d never actually seen before, came in mid renovation, looked around at all the stuff that had started changing, and proceeded to scream bloody murder at me, the only person on the shop front, about how this was going to effect her short term memory loss. Like, I’m really sorry to hear about that lady, and must be very difficult to deal with, but sadly not everything in the world is going to stand still for you, and screaming at me, a counter assistant, mid renovation isn’t going to change anything.
On a day where we closed midday, having put yellow tape around the front of the shop, putting up a big sign saying ‘SORRY, WE’RE CLOSED’, more customers than I can count, walked under or just plain ripped through the tape and tried to open our locked doors. Many of them yelled through the doors at us that they couldn’t get in. And once informed that ‘sorry, we’re closed for the day’ shouted at us for closing early and not telling them about it. (Even though you were told, I know you were told, I told most of you damn self yesterday.)
Multiple customers begging to be let in anyway because they just need some milk/some cigarettes/a packet of crisps. - I’m sorry but I cant let you in while work is being done, and even if I could, we have no tills to serve you on. - but I have the cash - I cant let you in, that would be dangerous.(Can you not see hard hat and gloves that I have to wear just to move stock out from the shop front?) - I’ll be careful.
Customers after having been sent away already, called the shop to tell us what an inconvenience that was to them.
Customers phoned up our head office to complain that were weren’t open, we got a phone call from them to ask if we had our signs up because they were bored of telling customers that yes they do know that shop is closed today, sorry we cant make them open just so you can buy a packet of pasta or use the cash machine inside.
At one point, nobody was in the front of the shop to tell a customer who had also missed the tape and sign that said we were closed to so he FUCKING SMASHED OUR GLASS DOOR AND WALKED INSIDE??????? WHO EVEN DOES THAT???? (Luckily the doors were going to be removed and fitted with new automatic ones later that week, be we (or the builders) had to boarder up the door with wood)
At one point, while the shop was essentially being gutted, having shelves and fridges and such ripped out, we had like a mini makeshift shop, like 1/10 the size of the full thing. (A tarp kind of thing acting as walls, one shelving stand, a fridge for milk and beer, cigarette cabinet, and half a counter strategically placed in front of the gap in the tarp so we could easily get in and out) so that people could get the ‘essentials’. Customers would routinely come in, look around, not find the thing they want, then try to just walk around the counter and into the part of the shop that was obviously closed off. In what store, anywhere in the world would you think it was okay to just walk behind the counter???
Sorry but you cant enter that part of the shop. - why not? - because the builders are in there, theyre working - but the thing i want is in there - if you cant find what you want out here, i will happily go check in the back for it - but I KNOW where it is!! It’ll be on that shelf - that shelf isnt there anymore - why - because were having a refit - so i cant have that thing, this is RIDICULOUS - if you can wait right here for a moment, I can see if we have it in the back - fine -*goes and gets the thing from the back* - why dont you have this thing out here anyway? you have those other similar things there! - I’m sorry we just dont have the space in this section for everything, we’re trying to keep it down to the basics - well I’ll be coming back for more of it so you should put it out here ready for me!
Sorry but you cant go through into that part of the shop. - why not? - We’re undergoing refurbishment, the builders are in there I’m afraid. - oh, can i go in and have a look? - sorry, no. - why not? - because its dangerous - but you can go in there! - yes, but i have to wear a hard hat while i pass and through - well can i wear one and have a look? - no. - WHY NOT? - because its dangerous and i could get into trouble for letting you in there. - but how will i know what it looks like? - you’ll just have to wait and see when its all done. - but i want to see it now! -(Internally: Youre a grown ass man! what kind of grown man throws a tantrum over this kind of thing??)
Sorry but you cant go through to that section - but the thing i want is in there - *see’s the thing they want is wrapped up in a delivery dolly. Its not been scanned in yet but i know i can make a not if it for when we do get round to scanning things in.* Okay, if you could please wait right here, I’ll get it for you. - No, its fine, I can get it myself. - Sorry but I cant let you into that part of the shop. (at this point in time, one of the builders has noticed us talking and is very helpfully opening the dolly to get the item. He double checks its the right thing before bringing it over to us. the customer gets more shopping then i scan it through and bag it all up. but wait theres more) - how much did that scan at. - [item price] - how much? it was only [special offer price] last week. - That offer ended two weeks ago. - I dont want it then, take it off.
Do you have any frozen veg? - Sorry, not at the moment. - You had some before. - Yes, but were undergoing a refit and we don’t have any freezers to keep frozen food in at the moment. - why not? - our old freeze has been sent to a different store and are new ones wont be here until next week. - how am i going to make a roast dinner now? - we still have fresh veg in our fridges in the back, as well as canned veg, I can go get some for you. - well what do you have in? - peas, cauliflower, parsnips, and we have some potatoes on the shelves. - can I see them? - sure i’ll get some for you, what would you like to see? - all of it, where is it? - its in the back, I’d have to bring it up. - can’t I just go look for myself - sorry no. I know its not convenient, but I cant let you through. - fine, bring me [these things] - *brings here the things* - *looks at all the things, frowns* - these arent frozen - (internally smashing my head against a wall) after 10 more minutes of back and forth, she decided to go somewhere else.
