Jensen talking about working at a haunted house
So Dylan Marron mentioned on instagram that his pearl earring was his mother’s and he wore it everyday.
Carlos is still stuck in the desert.
Look at Fifty Shades Of Grey's knot.
Now look at my knot.
Now back at FSoG. Now back at me.
This is the knot your knot could look like if you bothered to ask actual BDSM players, or hell, even their YouTube channels, before making a movie supposedly about BDSM. I’m not a rope top and I did that one-handed.
I’m on a horse.
The thing where they justify abuse by saying “it’s BDSM, of course it’s sick and wrong” is still a bigger problem though.
This is the best fucking response to that stupid ass trailer all other responses go home SHE’S ON A FUCKING HORSE.

So, those funny pronouns which people just invent out of nowhere tend to get a lot of hate from my fellow anti-sjws. Me? I’m basically neutral about them.
While people taking them really seriously and launching into wars over them is indeed rather annoying, I don’t really subscribe to the idea that they’re bad because they make transgender people look bad. While that could well be true on some level, I’m a little hesitant to support it because it seems kind of similar to the kinds of arguments the sjws themselves use. It’s saying “nobody’s allowed to do such-and-such because it “disrespects” some group of people” and that’s just weak.
Instead, consider this: One person having “preferred pronouns” has absolutely zero effect on a second person who doesn’t like them. Conversely, the second person deciding not to use the first person’s “preferred pronouns” has absolutely zero effect on the first person.
People have the right to demand that others use certain arbitrary words to refer to themselves if they feel like it. On the other hand, people can also ignore those demands and use different words if they want.
I’ve explained several times that it makes no sense to attach moral value to words, because we are responsible for our feelings and for our reactions to those words. Whoever’s writing the words cannot actually reach into the heads of readers and force them to be offended against their will.
If you don’t like other people referring to you by the wrong words, deal with it.
If you don’t like other people wanting to be referred to by words you find stupid, also deal with it.
Nobody’s really right or wrong, and in the end, “preferred pronouns” are rather inconsequential to everyone. Words can’t hurt you, and other peoples’ “preferred pronouns” don’t impact on you in any way.
I disagree. Strongly so.
As someone who is genderfluid, it does bother me when people use these tucute pronouns like “fae” and “bun” because it is so incredibly difficult to take it seriously, and it reflects on the entire trans/non-binary community. This is something that has a lot of potential to cause problems for trans/non-binary people by turning a very real medical condition into a fad that can be overlooked by the voters and lawmakers upon which our rights are dependent.
Keep in mind that there are still a lot of places in the US, let alone the world, that do not accept transgender/non-binary individuals, where they can be legally fired from their jobs or evicted from their homes for being who they are. LGBT rights as a whole are steadily moving forward in the Western world, but there is still a lot of confusion in the mainstream population over what being trans/non-binary is.
There are already stories of people who come out to their parents as trans or non-binary, their parents don’t understand so they look it up online, and then they come across the tucutes and can’t take their kids seriously. Which means that they aren’t going to be getting the proper medical treatment until they’re 18, assuming that they could ever afford it—but moreover, they aren’t going to be accepted by their family, which is a big step for most people. Hell, I know I can never come out to my parents as genderfluid because of this.
These pronouns also typically come with the idea that “you don’t need dysphoria to be trans/non-binary”, which contradicts the literal definition of being trans/non-binary, but also makes it more difficult in the long run for people to get the proper treatment because they water down the need for it… but that’s a whole other post.
If you aren’t bothered by it, good for you, but don’t pretend that it isn’t going to have further consequences for the trans/non-binary community, because it already is.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in
The Turkish company Pugedon has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.
this makes me so happy
I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.
Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc).
