sir please stop harassing the lesbians
hot take. i think jokes that hate on rainbow clothing and accessories and kids getting purple undercuts and going to a GSA and going by names like “kai” or “zelda” aren’t funny. like… idk man maybe we should just let lgbt kids go through their “holy shit i’m gay/bi/trans and i’m gonna tell the world about it!!” phase? like it’s literally not harming them? especially the GSA thing. yes, GSAs can be toxic as is any school club environment but it’s better than them being completely isolated from the real world and only having an lgbt space online (which is clearly detrimental as evidenced by all you weirdos here). let them put flags and pronoun pins on their backpack, let them get a bad haircut, let them wear smelly dysphoria hoodies that make them comfortable, let them put on bad eyeliner and lipgloss. let gay and trans kids exist without being ridiculed for not being out of their coming out “honeymoon” phase. let them fall in love with being lgbt. it’s better than repressing it and hating themselves for years, isn’t it?
I already said this in my tags but:
Hey, y'all in the notes: she wasn’t asking you to call her beautiful or say she’s adorable or “uwu she’s so sweet i would die for her”. She’s asking you to interact with physically different creators regardless of if you think they’re beautiful or not. Beauty standards are a farce and we need to stop implying that beautiful is the most important thing someone can be. Every person who says “oh she’s so sweet I would die for her” or “anyone who calls her ugly is getting their kneecaps caved in”: this is for you. You are being madly infantalising. It’s like when you say to a fat person “oh you’re not fat, you’re cuddly” like, shut up! I thought we were past this by now. She is a PERSON and you are all scrambling to say just how beautiful you think she is, without even thinking about the message she is trying to send.
This isn’t me saying she’s ugly or whatever the fuck. I don’t believe in ugly. This is me telling you all to stop being so fucking surface level with your beauty ‘activism’. She knows what she looks like and she probably doesn’t need hundreds of people infantalising her because they need to performatively show off how good they are and how much they don’t care about traditional beauty standards. Grow up and interact with her like she’s a person, not a fuckin three-legged puppy.

i have what- 42?
w,,why do you need 42,,,
Steven Universe: Eh, I don’t really feel like saying “girlfriend” or “wife”. Maybe they’re together. They have a special connection…
(gets violently shoved aside)
The Loud House/Craig of the Creek/The Owl House: Pfft, amateur. “My GIRLFRIEND Sam and I…” “I’m texting my GIRLFRIEND, mind your business.” “Luz’s new GF showed her…”
Can we not do this thing? Do you realize that Rebecca had to fight for what we got with Rupphire and literally risked her job? and Pearl and Rose. Like, there is no need to knock other shows down because of Lumity.
These kids today, I tell you what. In my day you had to bury your girlfriends under subtext and then end the series when the truth was revealed.
Risked her job, hell, it’s an open secret now that the Rupphire wedding (which, may I remind folks, was the first queer wedding in a kids’ cartoon, which is a BIG DEAL) is why everything about the rest of the series felt rushed. They had to scramble to tell the rest of the story because they took a gamble and the network retaliated by shortening their production time.
Rebecca Sugar and the crewniverse risked the entire show getting flat-out cancelled in order to show that wedding, only for people to say it “wasn’t progressive enough” and was “giving in to stereotypes” to put Ruby in a wedding dress. Never mind that Ruby kept getting dubbed over as a guy in localization, Sapphire was unmistakably feminine in every version, and putting Ruby in the dress was a flagrant way to say, “fuck you, you can’t pretend this is a straight couple; this is a queer couple and a queer wedding.”
Dana Terrace has said that The Owl House only exists with its intended queerness because of what Rebecca Sugar and her team accomplished with Steven Universe. Hell, there are multiple members of the Steven Universe team who went on to work on the other shows mentioned in the OP–Steven Sugar, for example, who is Rebecca Sugar’s brother and inspiration for SU in the first place (as well a background artist on the show), is currently an artist on The Owl House. There are people who got their start on Steven Universe who now only have the opportunity to tell more queer stories because of Steven Universe’s success.
I’m not even 30 years old yet and I’m still old enough to remember when being gay was fully illegal in the United States. Not gay marriage, but literally just BEING GAY. It wasn’t that long ago, and the fact that today in 2021 I can turn on the TV and watch gay cartoons intended for children? I never thought I’d see it. Fucking ever.
So let’s stop pitting queer creators and media against each other, shall we?

Bro what the fuck is This? You slap dead onto a sign, and then you insult every single thing you tagged by mixing them all together.
How do goblins even relate to this? How is this eerie? YOU USE THE WORD CORE SO DAMN MUCH IT LOSES ITS MEANING? BASTARD CORE? creepy? Is this a joke? This better be a joke. I refuse to believe this dumbfuck exists. Oh huhuhu I hear SCP is super scary and mysterious! I shall slap SCP on anything that is slightly creepy and slowly discredit a great collaborative writing project! I shall drag it down to mere click bait on YouTube kids.

The font style is based on the current logo, and I brought back period and the muted blue to make it more recognizable.
That’s some good work right there!
Thanks to @ask-some-golds for inspiring me to do this one.
//Probably not that great but I tried. Since I have a creator fantroll, thought it’d be a good reference. Might make grubtube too if no one has already.

This was commissioned by @ricottacheeze for their webcomic HybridRule.
Here’s a little note I realize I never added. The reason the Grype logo is made up of circles while most other logos replace them with hexagons is for a very important reason: It’s not for the lowbloods.

Okay so clearly Tumblr is blocking the posts about the #ActiBlizzWalkout cause my reblogs aren’t showing up on my dash - anyway don’t cross the virtual picket line folks and let’s stand up for women and marginalized groups in the gaming workplace.
Avoid these games/companies, thanks
Boycotts work, yall
Keep avoiding these games for the time being, especially the ones that use online services.
well, now that im in the mood to beat the fuck out of a certain character *cough cough medic* i guess i’ll go write a bit more of my self indulgent whump fic (or at least one of them lmaoo). it’s not like i’ve got anything better to do
i was thinking more like… severe injuries on the verge of infection, lying in agony whilst slowly bleeding out, unfocused eyes caused by sickness and delirium, vision quickly fading to black, holding on to what little consciousness he has left… but a good slap would be nice too :)
mutuals tags aren’t working rn i cant put tws sorry
this site has one setting
I’m laughing, but there’s a super useful corollary, which my husband calls “the Red Balloon.” He was a defense lawyer and had a fair number of drug addicts come through, and there is a thing where if you’re like, on your first offense, they’ll do a thing where you can go to treatment and if you complete it they’ll take the conviction off your record.
And he would tell his clients, “Look, everyone’s going to tell you not to do drugs. They’re going to say it over and over again. And it’s like, if people tell you not to think of a white elephant, you’re going to think of a white elephant. But the trick to not thinking about a white elephant is to think of a red balloon. So you need to find your red balloon. For some people it’s yoga. For others it’s woodworking. For some people it’s scrapbooking or gardening or any of a long list of things to do. They focus on that, it’s a lot easier to succeed in ignoring the white elephant.”
So yeah, “watch yourself” is one thing… but the better idea is to watch something else. (Even if it’s fanfic about werewolves fucking.)
It’s a form of productive dissociation, and is super, super helpful.
It’s easy for me to get bogged down in how much pain I’m in… but some of the most painful periods of my life have also been the most productive, writing-wise, because writing is one of my red balloons.
There is a phrase I use A LOT in my parenting and my son gets very sick of it, but it’s true:
The thing you practise is the thing you get good at.
You may not intentionally be practicing “being grumpy” but if you don’t put effort into practicing “not being grumpy” then I’m afraid that’s what you’re doing. It’s hard! It’s really hard! Sometimes, for some things, it’s pretty much impossible and that sucks!
But being carefully aware that you are going to get good at the things you do most of is a good way to be more careful of what those things are. If that makes sense.
You gotta appreciate sometimes how tumblr works in such a way that everyone who wants to reblog this interesting or useful psychological advice is also forced to reblog the thing about werewolf fucking
