For Writers:

sunken-standard:

Reblog if it’s okay for your followers to leave you an ask telling you what the one thing is they remember you for as a writer.  Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line? Is it something like style or characterization?  Is it that one weird kink they never thought they’d be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

Commission me?

carryonflower:

This is my tablet chord - it’s currently being held together by electric tape and has been frayed to the point that the insides are completely free of the plastic. Not only is that a health hazard for me, but it’s probably not going to be long before it breaks.

I have $20 saved at the moment, but I need $45 to get a wireless kit for my tablet. I’ve had this happen with every tablet I’ve had in the past, so I think a wireless kit would be less expensive in the long run. If I can get one $25 commission, I can get it. Since I need it so badly, I’m willing to do a full render of no more than 3 characters for that much. 

If you can’t commission me, would you reblog to help this post find someone who can? I’m about to be at home for the next three months recovering from dental surgery, so I need my tablet to be able to work.

spiritofally:

Back in middle school, my friends and I used a very simple coded language for writing secret messages. I saw some posts about needing to hide one’s beliefs from partners/bosses/parents so I wanted to share it with you! These would also be great to incorporate into sigils since they are simple lines and dots.

fuck it

i dont want girls sexualising mlm relationships anymore. at all

i dont want them fetishizing our relationships bc they think it’s sexy

i dont care if its a “way for them to express their sexuality”. that aint right and its messed that they can say that they want men in the porn industry to stop fetishizing wlw relationships, only to do the same bc its “fandom”

can yall please reblog this actually ??

bc like. im a boy attracted to boys. and this is making me uncomfortable and i want it to stop

and im not the only one ? a handful of people have agreed with me and im sure there are more

please dont ignore this bc you want to keep writing/drawing/reading m/m porn…. or bc im a boy and you dont care what i have to say….. especially if you disagree with the treatment of wlw in the porn industry its a double standard and this is important to me and i dont want it to be swept under the rug

Add on: you can still write, draw and read about mlm without fetishizing them. By fetishization, OP means that you only see these relationships as sexy and sinful instead of just seeing it as average everyday relationships.

Nearly every girl I’ve met within fandoms with mlm ships has only focused on the men having sex or calling them ‘my nasty gay babies’ and that’s just gross.

We’re all writers here so I thought it important that y’all see this and take note. 

dragonswithtypewriters:

I joined a facebook group, and I keep seeing teenagers post about wanting to come out, but being scared of how their parents would react. And so many people keep telling them to come out as soon as possible; that doors will open for them, and that it won’t matter what their parents think, because the opinions of others don’t hurt if you’re being true to yourself (or something like that).

And that’s so scary to me. People become homeless from coming out. People lose their families because they come out. Coming out isn’t a goddamm game.

I know that a lot of LGBT people have only positive reactions from their family and friends after they come out, and that’s fine. But you have to understand that people’s lives can be put in danger if they come out at the wrong time. And- again- people lose their families after coming out.

The best advice that you can give is to tell the kid to keep themselves safe first.

It’s wonderful to be out. But it’s also devastating to be out. It’s painful and hard to be out, and while it’s worth it- it is- it’s not worth losing a roof over your head.

Forty percent of homeless youth are LGBT. Be fucking careful of the advice you give.

You will never ever annoy me if you

  • Send me random anons
  • reply to my posts
  • send me an ask
  • reblog me
  • talk to me
  • say hello
  • give me random love
  • “bother” me

So please stop thinking otherwise.

foods that will poison cats:

  1. alcohol 
  2. chocolate
  3. caffeine
  4. dairy products (adults turn lactose intolerant)
  5. fat trimmings, raw meat, eggs, fish
  6. grapes and raisins
  7. onions and garlic
  8. tuna (when not made for cats)
  9. xylitol (artificial sweetener)

if you have a cat please reblog this

Even if you don’t have a cat please reblog this for all your followers who may have their own precious little baby.

I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT TUNA OMFG

OK, this is not entirely true.

Actually dangerously poisonous: alcohol, chocolate, caffeine, xylitol. A note on chocolate, the darker the chocolate, the worse it is. If kitty licks up a bit of your chocolate ice cream or some melted Hershey bar off your fingers, she will be fine. There’s not enough cocoa in it to really hurt her, though she may have some stinky poops later. Dark chocolate however, could kill her even if it’s just a little bit.

Will result in stomach upset: Dairy (unless it’s lactose-free, then it’s fine), fat trimmings (if excessive, it can cause pancreatitis). Raw meat. Most cats, if they hunt outside as well, as fine eating a little bit of raw meat. However, if you have an indoor-only cat, don’t give them raw meat as they do not have the right bacteria in their stomach to digest it right.

MAY cause kidney dysfunction: Grapes/raisins. Vets aren’t even sure why and not every cat reacts that way. Some cats can eat a grape and be perfectly fine. Others wind up at the emergency vet. Best not to play Russian roulette though.

Will result in temporary anemia: Onions and garlic. They are part of the lily family. Actual lilies are way deadlier and are an emergency. Your cat licking a bit of garlicky sauce is not.

Tuna: You can safely give your cat tuna of any kind AS A TREAT. However, you should not substitute tuna for cat food. There is not enough taurine in it to keep them healthy. In fact, vets often suggest giving sick /dehydrated cats tuna water to get them to drink on their own.

Eggs: You can safely give your kitty cooked eggs. Raw eggs, not so much, as the risk of salmonella is just as pertinent for them as it is for us. It will not kill your cat, but they may get an upset stomach from it. (Again, indoor-only cats are at more risk than cats that go outdoors and hunt.)

Fish : As with eggs and meat, I would not recommend giving an indoor only cat raw fish. Cooked fish is fine as the amount of mercury in it is negligible. Although skip the lemon, most cats hate citrus. :)

bibliosexxual:

Just a Sterek drabble I wrote on this rainy Sunday afternoon because I started my day off watching an absolutely SOUL-CRUSHING ep of House, M.D. and needed a little something to cheer myself up afterwards.

In case it’s not your thing: this fic features Stiles/OMC, but not for long. ;) Rated T, under 1k words

Sometimes Stiles’ new boyfriend can be fairly awesome, like when they stay up until three a.m. together playing video games and making out, or like that time… like… Well, pretty much all the examples Stiles can think of right now are sex things, but. But Jake’s a nice guy, kind of. He’s hot. He’s so hot Stiles still can’t believe he wants to date Stiles, and there are times when he can be a lot of fun.

Then there are the times (like today) that have Stiles questioning all his life choices, especially this one.

“Stiles, stop texting Lydia,” Jake says. No—practically whines. Seriously.

“Uh, no?” Stiles hits send, because Jake is not the boss of him. “We’re still on the ground. We don’t have to turn our phones off yet.”

And now Jake is pouting at him, like he’s six years old. “That’s not what I mean and you know it.”

Stiles can’t help but roll his eyes. “Stop trying to tell me who I can and cannot text. It’s creepy and controlling.”

Jake tries to put his hand over Stiles’, and it actually makes Stiles’ skin crawl a little bit. Stiles crosses his arms over his chest, hands safely tucked into his armpits. In retrospect, inviting Jake along on a trip to Hawaii was probably a bad idea when they’ve only been dating for three months.

Jake crosses his arms, too. “I’m your boyfriend. I’m not allowed to get a little possessive?”

“A little possessive? This is not ‘a little possessive.’ This is annoying and ridiculous and petty and invasive and… Look, yes, I’m bisexual, but Lydia and I are just friends. We’re always going to be friends, and I’m never cutting her out of my life for a boyfriend. The end. So you can stop being a jealous dick—”

“Or what?”

Stiles can’t believe they’re having this conversation right now. “Or maybe we shouldn’t be dating after all.”

Jake runs a hand through his sandy blond prince-charming hair and snorts. “Please, this relationship is over when I say it is. Or do you seriously think anyone else is lining up to date you?”

For a moment Stiles is actually speechless, because how has he spent the last three months thinking this guy was attractive? How did he overlook this level of douchebaggery? Some kind of witchcraft, probably.

That’s when the guy in the row ahead of them turns around in his seat, looks Stiles straight in the eye, and says without even one hint that he’s joking, “I would date you.”

I don’t give a flying fuck what you look like. If you tell me you’re a woman, then you’re a woman. If you tell me you’re a man, then you’re a man. If you tell me you’re more than one gender or non-binary or agender or anything else, then that’s what you are. That’s your call to make, not mine.

If you’re not telling the truth for some reason, I’ll still respect that, because I understand that it’s sometimes easier to misgender yourself than to endanger yourself, or maybe you’re just not comfortable coming out to me or the other people around you. Again, your call.

And if the next time we meet you tell me you’re a different gender, then guess what! I’m going to respect that, too.

This so aggressively supportive! I love it!!!

LGBT concentration camps are Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov solution to the “gay problem”. This is real. This is happening right now

Statement from the Russian LGBT Network:

We are grateful to everyone who contacted us and asked how they can help. What do we need now?
- Help us to spread the information about the fact that the Russian LGBT Network is ready to evacuate people. Please think for whom this information can be useful. You can spread the information publicly or personally. Everyone who needs help can contact us by email or call the Hotline (8 800 555 73 74). The call is free all over Russia.
- In accordance with the Russian legislation, every citizen can apply to the Investigative Committee with the demand to investigate the information about the crime published in mass media. We encourage everyone to apply (the template of the claim will be published tomorrow).

We understand that many people want to help those in need. But please remember that any uncoordinated actions can put in additional danger people in need and those who are ready to help. Therefore, we do not recommend to collect the addresses of people who are ready to provide temporarily shelter.

Be aware, that the situation with the human rights in the North Caucasus is truly difficult. Now people’s lives are endangered and the only way to help is the evacuation. The Russian LGBT Network has the necessary resources to evacuate people, there is a team that already makes every effort to safe lives. That is why we ask everyone to share with us the information about people in need and any offers of assistance.

the highlighting was mine- don’t dm people asking if they’re ok and if they know about this. even if you think your messaging system is secure. encryption is a two way street, and if their end is NOT secured it doesn’t really matter what your end has. especially since those arrested have had their phones confiscated, you do not want to give the authorities any more evidence. however, if you are in a position to do so, posting about it publicly will increase the odds that those who need this information see it. 

Shit.

This is not even the news being news, as a person who can read Russian I can sadly confirm the information. Also, seconding the reblog before mine - DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT MESSAGE PEOPLE DIRECTLY ABOUT IT. YOU CAN PUT THEM IN DANGER BY DOING THAT. Especially if using any Russia-based messaging app/social media. Russian police are assholes they are known to confiscate things they are not allowed to confiscate and request and get the information they are not allowed to get and generally ignore the same laws they are supposedly enforcing. The less evidence they can get by legal or illegal means, the better.

There is not a lot of people from Russia subscribed to me or even a lot of just people who are subscribed to me in general, but the more information is spread about this, the better. If you know any LGBT people living in Russia or Chechnya (Especially Chechnya!) you probably should reblog this. 

Good thing I am not living in Russia right now.

Если вы являетесь человеком нетрадиционной ориентиции и/или гендера проживающим в Росии или Чечне(Особенно Чечне!) вам лучше прочитать этот пост по крайней мере с помощью гуглопереводчика прямо сейчас.

Hundreds of men suspected of being gay are being abducted, tortured and even killed in the southern Russian republic of Chechnya:

Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such” as part of a purge. Several people were also reportedly feared dead following violent raids.

Tanya Lokshina of Human Rights Watch wrote: “For several weeks now, a brutal campaign against LGBT people has been sweeping through Chechnya.

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/04/10/chechnya-has-opened-concentration-camps-for-gay-men/

Two television reporters, a waiter, and numerous other men ranging in age from 16 to 50 have been reported missing from the state of Chechnya, in Russia.

In one instance, a 16-year-old boy was detained but reappeared later with severe injuries from being beaten.

Human rights activists in the area believe that authorities have been arresting and killing the missing men, all of whom are believed to be gay.

There’s also a petition HERE, but I don’t imagine that that will change something. 

Reblogging again for more information because it is really better to be informed about those things.

This is a nightmare.
