I was looking through my archive

and found myself marvelling that I used to have such an active blog, filled with so many original text posts. Then I started reading them, and I realised why that had all dried up, leaving the reblogs of pop feminism and funny things behind.

I got happy.

I’m still unwell. I still have a long way to go. But I no longer feel defined by that sadness and loneliness I felt. It’s now just the condition I live with; it’s not a part of me. I have a direction in my life, and goals, and I have an amazing husband holding my hand along the way and brilliant people who are there to catch me if I fall.

And now I’ve realised all that, I need to find a way of still being an expressive person online without spreading negativity.

I saw your selfie and couldn't help but go through the others, and I'm happy I did, you have an absolutely lovely face, I'm glad I stumbled upon it~<3 (Nice body, too, though! ^ //^)

Aww shucks, I bet you say that to all the girls you direct your unwarranted and inappropriate sexual energies at! I’m blushing!

I should really be packing for our move-out-of-the-sticks in less than two weeks. Instead, I am sitting on the floor where I get the best light source in my living room to take photos of myself. Priorities.

Anonymous said: Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

thefrogman:

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quit being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.

not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that. men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
