I was talking to my dad about anti vaxxers and he said “those people should go through cemeteries and see when the child mortality rate dropped dramatically and then rethink vaccines” and he’s absolutely right, when you walk through a cemetery you see the child and infant mortality rates go from being higher in the early 1900s and late 1800s to being less and less and then rare, and people against vaccines do not appreciate that in the way that we all should
gentle reminder: use your voice and speak up. always try to speak up. if you’re unhappy about something, speak up. if you’re struggling with yourself, speak up. if you don’t like something, speak up. remember to always speak up and be true to yourself. even if people aren’t going to agree with what you think or what you believe in, you should still stand up for yourself and speak up. don’t let anyone stop you from expressing your feelings and emotions. you deserve to have a voice. you have a right to say how you feel.
romanticize un-illuminated brown and black eyes. romanticize the way dark eyes look without being blinded by flash. romanticize brown eyes that don’t have streaks of gold and yellow. romanticize black eyes that are so raven it’s hard to distinguish where the iris is. the depth of your dark eyes is enchanting. brown and black eyes draw you in, wrap you up, and leave you wanting more. fall in love with them.
Yet another reminder that faking is a conscious choice that you make.
It is not something you can do accidentally, regards of what you’re talking about.
You can’t accidentally fake depression, or anxiety, or bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia, or any other mental illness.
You can’t accidentally fake Borderline Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, personality disorders.
You can’t accidentally fake ADHD, autism, Tourette’s Syndrome, auditory processing disorder, aphasia or any other neurodivergence
You can’t accidentally fake being trans or ace-spec or aro-spec or any other LGBTQIA+ identity.
You can’t accidentally fake chronic illnesses like CFS, fibromyalgia or any chronic illness.
You also can’t accidentally fake being good/intelligent at something. You didn’t fool your peers into reaching your position.
You can’t accidentally fake trauma, PTSD/cPTSD, DID/OSDD/DDNOS or any other trauma-based disorder.
Faking is a conscious choice.
You cannot do it by accident.
If you are worried that you are faking, that in itself is proof that you are not.
In honor of Asexual awareness week coming up;
(Oct 21st - Oct 27th)
Smash that motherfucking reblog button if you support Asexuals and consider them a valued part of the LGBTQ+ community!
Exclusionists/Acephobes do not interact.
Edit; Acephobes/Exclusionists who have replied to this post anyway, obviously unable to read… I am not here to argue with you. This isn’t about discourse. Fuck you.
Our identities have been discourse topics for too long. Not this week. This week is about celebrating ourselves. This week I’m done with you. I’m no platforming you.
This is the week we block on sight.
Victor refusing to make the Monster a wife because he was worried they’d breed is such a cop out. Like, you’re cobbling together body parts from charnel houses. You can just not give her any ovaries. You can just spay her like a cat. Why are you this dumb Victor. You’re a doctor.
the implication that victor spend weeks giving the monster a working dick is also extremely weird
Something to remember is that Victor didn’t just give the monster a working dick! He wanted his creation to be made of the best parts of men-it’s why the monster is made up of so many different pieces rather than one fresh corpse, why he’s so large, and why Victor is disappointed that he isn’t beautiful.
So, what does this mean? It means that Victor looked at the dicks of various corpses, testing not only to make sure they work, but also to find what he considered to be the best corpse dick. Does this mean the monster was extremely hung? Or did Victor simply pick the dick that seemed most attractive to him? Did he memorize the appearance of the dicks, or did he line them up to compare?
We’ll never know, because the original story never touches on the subject, and it’s one of the few flaws in Mary Shelley’s work.
I know I started this conversation but I’m so sorry I did
Considering we know who Mary Shelley was spending time around I guarantee this was a CONVERSATION that she actively and adamantly refused to actually include in the text
Well, there is ONE adaptation which includes this very discussion.
I feel it’s my duty to make sure everyone sees this because the still images don’t do the comedic timing of that pause justice.
Gene Wilder was a comedic master.
A rare example of a movie with absolutely NO poor performances, and every single member of the cast firing on all cylinders.
Reminder that the movie Bride of Frankenstein almost wasn’t allowed to release because the concept of two men creating new life without a woman was “too gay” for the Hayes Code and I think Mary would have appreciated that
Like is someone going to fucking eat this. are they gonna munch the little supports. are they gonna lick the lil whatever the fuck you call the person place part. is a motherfucker supposed to chow down on this scultpute. who asks for these. and can i get a tiny bank to eat.
🌷 sometimes, being kind to yourself is to study instead of procrastinating, even if it makes you feel uncomfortable - when the exams and deadlines approach, your anxiety won’t be so bad.
🌸 sometimes, being kind to yourself is to log off everything, stop looking for the rush of validation - at the end of the day, you can’t fill an empty mood with more emptiness.
✨ sometimes, being kind to yourself is to make yourself uncomfortable for a while. to get rid of habits that initially comfort you, but ultimately make you feel worse. all habits are uncomfortable to stop, but the rewards will be so satisfying, and so worth it !!
A very happy poodle
what is this energy and can i have it
