can we stop acting like romantic love “”completes you”” as a person because i’m pretty sure aromantic people aren’t broken or incomplete
also single people aren’t broken or incomplete
It kind of blew my mind the first time “I’m not really looking right now, I had a bad experience” turned into “I’m not really looking because I am totally okay with being by myself for life if that’s the way things fall out.” I wish I had been able to see that sooner.
my harry potter OC is called deadlift powercrunch, the most muscular wizard of all time
wizards rarely use physical power to accomplish anything, so the most muscular, is propably not that muscular when compared to muggles
deadlift powercrunch uses her physical power above magic, she does not care about magic and only uses it to create gym equipment from thin air and also to give her gatling gun arm infinite bullets.
In response to GoFundMe’s response to the very racist and dangerous campaign in support of Darren Wilson, I’m deleting my GoFundMe page as soon as I can figure out how to do so.
But the thing is… what I’m taking down is a personal commercial project that I haven’t even really started ramping up yet. It’s a not-immediately-for-profit one, but it’s not something essential to my life. I can take it down and it will make no effect on me keeping a house, or getting fed, or receiving medical care.
And so I have zero judgment in my heart for anyone (in particular, anyone other than other white people) who is using GoFundMe to get those things. Because the thing is, GoFundMe is a very open platform with very permissive attitudes towards what it can be used for, very little cost, and very low (almost no) barriers to entry, which it means it can be the only real option for a lot of people.
Which is sad, because this hands off attitude and lack of gatekeeping is also the thing that allows them to duck responsibility so completely as racists use their service to pay a bounty for murder. .
I’m not going to support GoFundMe, but I am in no position to judge people who are receiving necessary and essential support from it. And I would hate to see people—people I know including queer and disabled people of color—have their support cut off or even be subjected to scorn and abuse because they don’t have an alternative.
What I’m saying is, yes… let’s hit them where it hurts, but let’s also mind the collateral damage. The target is Darren Wilson and the bigots who support him. Racism creates too many martyrs all by itself. We shouldn’t be creating more with our outrage.
I’ll start up an alternate campaign sometime next week, probably, after I get home.
*talks about u behind ur back but in a supportive way about how cool u are and how much i love u*
The mainstream will embrace non-binary genders when it figures out how to profit from them.
"Which gender are YOU? Do gender YOUR way… at JC Penney!"
