Fun fact: bisexuals come in all different shapes, sizes, races, genders, and walks of life. And for October only, they also come in pumpkin spice!
Simon jumps in front of a bullet for Kieren
It might be a faux pas to immediately reblog your own GIF for a meta, but I’m doing it anyway.
When I was screencapping and working on this, I noticed something about Kieren in the last 2 GIFs. His immediate reaction isn’t to scramble up and run away or to freak out and have a panic attack. His immediate reaction is to stay as still as possible and not move. Obviously I don’t know how Blue Oblivion works, but he’s probably still a little fuzzy from it. His immediate reaction is to find reassurance and comfort. As Simon moves to lean over him, Kieren’s eyes never leave his face. His gaze follows Simon’s movement, and his head doesn’t move, making it seem a weirdly animalistic but emotional reaction. He doesn’t look around, doesn’t look away except when he closes them. His reaction to the impending panic is to find a focal point (Simon) and something reassuring (also Simon) and concentrate on it. I absolutely bet he had a proper freak out once he was away from all those people and on his way to the GP, but I think at this point the feeling of Simon’s weight and hands on him and his concentration on Simon’s face grounds him enough to keep him calm.
Don’t fuck with me
This is great. You were very mature and explicit, as well as helpful in the ways that you could be. I don’t think you could have handled this any better than you did. 4 for you, Glen Coco.
I wish I could have stood up for myself in this way when I was a teenager
Threatening suicide to get what you want isn’t “borderline” abusive, it is abusive.
Men who do this have a very high risk of murdering whomever they’re trying to guilt trip when the guilt trip eventually stops working.
ironically hes joked about killing me before
I could never of been that sure of myself and protective of my own health when I was 14. What you did is wonderful and you should be incredibly proud of yourself.
Because representation? There are dozens, if not hundreds of trans women who could’ve easily played that role. Candis Cayne plays a trans woman on Elementary. Laverne Cox plays a trans woman on Orange is the New Black. Why couldn’t have a trans woman played the role that Jared Leto took? Cis men have absolutely no place playing trans women, het people shouldn’t be playing gay people, white people shouldn’t be playing POC. There are so many underprivileged actors who could be taking those roles instead of giving them to the white/cis/het actors who are just seeing these roles as a job, as a costume, an act, instead of a reality.
Jared Leto won a freaking award for doing something he will never actually experience in the real world. And it’s the same thing for all het actors winning awards for gay roles - and I mean roles where they play the ~hardships~ of being MOGAI rather than just being a character who is gay. It’s not progressive and it’s a form of bigotry towards MOGAI people. There are MOGAI people who could have that role and they’re not getting the jobs for things they’ve actually experienced.
As well as this, a privileged person playing a marginalised person is only PLAYING at being marginalised - the second they decide to stop, they can take off that persona and go back to being privileged. Marginalised people can’t ever do that.
okay but a story about an asexual pirate who gets made fun of by the crew until he saves all of them from sirens
A pirate for the adventure, not the booty
oh my gosh i want that on a bumper sticker
Trying to pilot a ship here. Thanks.
IT GOT BETTER
So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.
