you have no option


Gay male characters can’t earn the “Matchmaker” achievement in ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’

  • The most beloved part of most BioWare games is the ability to build romantic relationships with the characters you meet along the way, and Mass Effect: Andromeda is no exception.
  • Thankfully, BioWare is smart enough to provide a number of romance options for just about any type of character you want to play — straight, bisexual, aliens only, whatever.
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda has a number of achievements players can earn through completing certain tasks — but there’s one that someone playing a gay male character can’t earn, simply because there aren’t enough potential partners to fulfill its criteria.
  • Specifically, the “matchmaker” achievement requires you to romance three separate characters, but if you’re playing a gay male character, you only have two romance options: Gil or Reyes. Read more (3/22/17)

“the A is for ally because it represents people who are closeted uwu”

Ok, no.

So you’re an exclusionist trying to prove the A isn’t for ace. You have one of two options. “A is for ally” or “A is for ally meaning closeted people” Either you actually DO want cisgender heterosexual people in the LGBTQ+ community, so long as they’re not ace, or you cling to the idea of “yeah we say allies are included, but we really mean closeted LGBTQ+ people, not actual straight cis allies”

And as a closeted bisexual you know what? Fuck that. Do you know how dangerous that is? You’re so desperate to exclude aspec people that you’re just going to willfully endanger the people you pretend you DO care about? If it becomes commonly believed that calling yourself an ally means you’re really a closeted member of the community, people like me who have to pretend that no we really are straight and/or cis we just support those who aren’t (and my super homophobic family is already super upset about the fact that I don’t think it’s good to hate gay people) are going to be put in potentially dangerous situations.

If my family heard that “A stands for ally, which really means closeted LGBTQ+ people” they would be trying to bully me into conversion therapy immediately. Would they physically harm me? No. But they would drag me to church to be prayed over and quite probably disown me if they couldn’t “fix” me with prayers and therapy. And other people would be at risk of physical harm and abuse from bigoted and abusive families, partners, etc. But exclusionists don’t care about that as long as they can claim the A is for anything but aces/aros.

Aspec people are part of the LGBTQIA+ community if they want to be, they obviously need support more than actual straight allies, and for the love of all that is good don’t out people to further your shitty “discourse”

I have a kind of outdoor cat, because we have a dog and a doggy door, is there anyway to get the cat to stay inside without it impacting the dog? (She's old with cancer so I want her to be as happy as possible)

It’s a pain in the butt to do, but you can. You might have to modify the dog door, though. The best options are a) get a dog door that is heavy/stiff enough that the cat can’t push it open but the dog can or b) get one of those doors that only unlocks when an RFID chip is close enough and then only put the chip on the dog’s collar. 

You might still have problems with the cat trying to bolt out after the dog once it figures out the game has changed. 

OOC: The Current State Of Affairs, and the future of TOTA

Okay, so. If you’re reading this, then you have the option of catching up with what Opal said last night - but the tl;dr version is as follows.

Opal is no longer running @askdunkledadster. However, she has given me permission to use her characters - including her interpretations of Dr. Gaster and the various AUs - on this blog.

This wasn’t an easy decision, nor was it a fast or at all impulsive decision - the possibility of ending the blog has been on the table for a few weeks. But it’s because of our discussions in private - which shall remain private - that I have little doubt that this decision is for the best. Opal and I have become very close friends over the past year. And while I am sad to see the blog end, and I understand that many others will mourn its passing too, I’m happy that someone I care about very much is taking steps to bolster their mental health.

Even though this is difficult for everyone who was a fan of Ask Dunkle Dadster, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Opal’s decision. If anybody needs to talk, I will be around, or at least mostly - I am still sick, hence the lack of updates.

But with the end of one blog, a new chapter of another begins. I’ll be consulting and working with Opal as long as she’s comfortable doing so, to make sure I do justice to everyone and carry the torch of AskDD. I’ll be continuing my weekly streams, as soon as I’m over this cold and I have my voice back. And just to make this clear; That One Tea Anon will not be ending any time soon. The story will continue.

As long as I have the time and energy to keep drawing for you guys, then I will keep on drawing. Caddy and G will still be together, and G will be appearing on the blog from time to time, with Opal’s blessing. But if you no longer wish to follow this blog for any reason, then that’s okay.

Take care of yourselves. <3

tips for choosing a college

This is a really exciting time for high school seniors/transfer students who are getting accepted to universities! But now it’s time for the most stressful part: deciding which school to go to. I was in the exact same place last year that you are in right now and I thought I would share some tips for making this difficult (but exciting!) decision.

Research, research, research. Online resources are the best. On the school’s official website, look at their course catalogs and major requirement sheets. If you’re coming in undeclared, look at their list of majors and see if you think they have enough options you’re interested in exploring. 

Also think about what it will be like to be a student at that school. Don’t only focus on the practical stuff like rankings and academics.  Look at the student orgs, events, and student resources. Follow their social media accounts (especially Instagram and Snapchat) to get a sense of the school’s vibe. You can even creep a lil and look at current students’ posts to see the campus through their eyes. Search for YouTube videos as well. There might be some vloggers who go to the school you’re interested in and you can see the day in the life of a student.

Take tours! Attend any admitted student days or come to campus for a regular tour. This is soooo important. You will get to learn about the school from an actual student and they will tell you more than you could ever find online. At the very least, walk around the campus yourself a little bit to get a feel for it. If for whatever reason you can’t go to campus before you have to choose, contact the admissions office and ask for some extra info. They might even put you in contact with a student who is in your major who you can talk to.  

Once you have narrowed it down to a couple schools, ask people which one they think you should go to. I did this and realized that whenever they told me a different school than UCSB (which I ended up going to) I would feel disappointed. I would always be like, “But why not UCSB?” You could also do the same thing by pulling names out of a hat. Think that whichever one you pick out, you will go to and see how you feel about it. While choosing a school should definitely be about academic opportunities and other practical factors such as financial aid, I think your gut feeling should play a role as well.

Do not worry about what other people will think. Everyone has an idea of what certain schools are like. It might have to do with rankings or other reputations that the school might have, but try to disregard that as much as possible and form your own opinions. Don’t worry if people don’t think the school is good enough or anything like that. After all, you are the one who will be going there for years, not them. 

Think about distance! I definitely underestimated how important this was for me. Consider how often you plan on going home. If you’re going to go home every weekend, a local school will probably work best in the long run. If you’re the total opposite and plan on rarely going home, a school much farther away will probably work out well for you. 

Talk to current students if you can. Reach out to alumni from your high school or community college who currently go there. If you do stop at the school for a visit, feel free to stop some students for directions then ask how they like going to school there. Check if there are any studyblrs who go to the schools you were admitted to (me if you were admitted to UCSB) and ask them any questions you have. 

So those are all the tips I can think of right now. Enjoy this time in your life because it is so exciting and you have so many options. If you have any questions about college or UCSB feel free to send me an ask! Good luck, and congratulations!

to me gender is like this. imagine you have the option between ice cream and pizza. some days you like pizza more than you like ice cream and prefer pizza that day. other days you like ice cream more than pizza and prefer ice cream. other days you’re really fucking tired of only having pizza and ice cream and want neither.

and that’s how gender feels to me

super fun quizzy time

Yo, so I don’t know how to make a fuckin’ quiz, but answer these 5 questions in my ask and I’ll tell you what paladin I think you are:

1) What is the most important trait that you like to project to others? (Like, what characteristic about yourself do you want to define you. I think this is one of the most fucking soul-staring questions in the world but I can never fucking phrase it right.)

2) What’s the most important quality in a best friend?

3) How would you cheer up a sad person?

4) In a pinch, would you trust a stranger to have your back if there were no other options, or do you resign yourself to the inevitability of death?

5) If you have a bad feeling about a person but your friends seem to trust them, do you: a) keep it to yourself and assume you’re probably overreacting, b) keep it to yourself and quietly wait to pounce the first time they fuck up, c) tell your friends something doesn’t sit right with you, or d) kill ‘em, better safe than sorry

Have fun!

Where is the link to this game's demo (if you have one yet) and what are all the possible ship options? *crosses fingers for Jantom and Manna*

We have put off development until we hear from Disney Licensing. If you want to help send them messages asking them to approve our request to use their IP for a nonprofit project. You can only play as Marco or Star, so no JanTom, but Manna is totally possible.

If it didn't make sense before and now say that they are together since December when D was in UK, makes it more than obvious. And people believe in this.

I want all the idiot antis that come to my inbox to explain this to me. You Have two options: he cheated on E with B since you probably believe they dated and then cheated on D with E (and she just took him back and Louis is a dick for you to support) oooor it’s fake af and you were absolutely wrong and Louis is good person like we believe  

Some people just don’t know how lucky they are to have family, to still have people that love and care about you in any shape or form. Don’t take them for granted or push them away. Don’t ignore that phone call or text message, you won’t always have the option of calling them back later. Sometimes later never comes. Make sure the people you love know you love them. Time is precious, spend it wisely. 

  • me: *picks the m/f romance option*
  • some little goblin: ew why would you pick the heterosexual option when you could have been gay
  • me: you are in for quite the shock when you find out what bisexuality is My Guy

Chubby Hubby: a body image/self esteem headcanon.

Peter is kind of a fatass. He’s not overweight, but he’s certainly soft and not well defined. You’re not likely to see him with his shirt off for this reason unless he’s pretty comfortable around you or he just doesn’t have options. He won’t make a big deal out of it, he just prefers to wear a shirt.

A guide to being a vocal citizen

For people wondering how to take action post-election of a racist demagogue (pulled from Twitter and cleaned up):

Make a spreadsheet or a file for your representatives with names, addresses to their offices, phone numbers, and contact forms. Put everyone there. Make a note in your calendar app to check in on issues once a month.

Pay attention to news. If you get angry, upset, or worried, seek support from friends but ALSO shoot these reps an email, too. Be courteous but firm and blunt. It’s a numbers game. Often we remain invisible because we don’t go to events and rallies and can’t be physically present. But we can attach our names to emails, we can write letters, we can be vocal. We don’t have to be invisible.

You can do this with your national reps, state reps, and local reps. If someone reps you anywhere, note them. Open a line and revisit it. It’s hard work and slow. One email at a time. One letter at a time. One call at a time. Emails are easy these days, so splurge every few months on a stamp and send a letter if you can. Put your humanity in front of these people. Flout it. Some won’t care, but others will. Change ONE mind and results can cascade.

Rural areas are bubbles full of bigotry and now it’s newly revealed. But we white people who live here have the clout and power! We can speak up when our reps say terrible things, and do terrible things, and vote terrible ways. We can go “I am disappointed in you.” It’s work, but as we’ve seen the last six months, it’s time for us to do that work. If someone goes “who are your reps” you gotta know. If you don’t know and you’re mad about this election, it’s time to create that file and keep it with you and use it.

The time for social media rants only is over. Or, do those, but maybe pull those threads out into a paragraph and send them to your reps. And don’t ONLY email or contact when things go badly. Also reach out when things go right. Even if they voted AGAINST something. Treat them like you would want to be treated if you were wrong or mistaken. But we’ve gotta reach out and let them know we’re here.

Anyway, I know this is hard work. If you need help collecting your reps, give me a ping via DM and I’ll help you get started.

Under Amour Has Officially Endorsed Trump

Hello my dears,

I am disappointed to have to inform you all that Under Armour has officially released an endorsement of Donald Trump. I know that several people will be affected by this and no longer wish or be able to support them by wearing their binders or sports wear, so my suggestion to you lovely people is this:


The sweet darlings there make incredible fashion binders for ALL sizes, and have several customization options besides your measurements. If you have a need for something or an idea that they don’t list, email them - they do amazing collaborative work. Giveaways and sales are frequent.

These aren’t scratchy hard-seamed undershirt binders. (Unless you want it to be an undershirt binder, in which case, that’s what they’ll make for you.) These are soft, smooth, sensitive-skin friendly FASHION binders that you can wear as a part of your wardrobe! I wear mine early every time I go out (the only times I don’t are when I’m going to work out or swim) and it is durable, goes with all of my clothes, and has given me my social life back. They use medical grade binding mesh, and it works wonders.

Note that they’re not trans-exclusive, either; if you want a binder for cosplay, that’s cool, too! If you need bathing suit shorts or a skirt, they’ve done that. Dresses, too. Everyone is welcome.

Love to you all,
