So is reblog is also not permitted?
That’s the difference. Reblogs are good! You promote the artist and their work.
At least for me repost is ok only in one condition: you asked permission and the artist said “yes”.
okay but more of us need to say we are antifa - like if everyone who opposes fascism and trump just refers to themselves as antifa, its going to be harder and harder for moderates and conservatives to write it off as a “terrorist group.”
i know people who are trump supporters. talking to them is the perfect opportunity to say “i’m antifa” or “i support antifa” watch them freak out and then follow up with: “antifa just means anti-fascism - it’s not an organization.. are you for fascism? because i’m anti-fascist.”
i cant believe i have to say “normalize antifascism” but here we are
might as well bring this back now - antifa = antifascism. if the president says being anti-fascist makes you a terrorist then that’s a pretty good sign his administration is fascist
The Cambridge academic Robin Bunce said: “There is a fundamental danger of erasing the very notion of a struggle at all. I’ve been researching this for four and a half years and there have been so many occasions when people have said to me: ‘There was no black struggle in Britain. You’re thinking of South Africa or America.’“
The narrative that feeds it is the one that Britain is the utopia of fair play. We have such a commitment to individual rights, we have such a commitment to common sense and decency that there is no systematic racism in Britain.”…
Bunce said it was not just politicians, but wider British society that would rather not dwell on the less palatable.
Bringing this one back, while I’m reminded.
hello! I don’t know if anyone has already made a post about this before, but I just stumbled upon this app made specifically for when you’ve gone into a nonverbal anxiety attack!!!
it was made by Jeroen De Busser who is an autistic computer science student.
the app is really easy to use! all you do is open it and hand your phone to someone you need to communicate with during an attack but physically cannot, and it shows this cool little alert for the person to read, and then it takes them to an easy to use chat (that looks a lot like texting! except both of you are communicating using the same device).
the alert message is completely customizable and you can have it say whatever you need!
the app is called Emergency Chat and it’s available in the Apple Store and google play store.
I highly recommend it to anyone who might need it :)
OH MY GOD?!?!?? BOOST
That’s so bootiful!
thank you so much for this because i never know what to do when i cant talk to people and they just start trying to ask me questions and its really hard to force myself to say i cant talk and stuff. im definately getting this right now
Also this app can be used for WAY more than nonverbal meltdowns! Its great for all sorts of things. Of you’re deaf, have asthma, dissociation, panic attacks, if you’re mute, if you have any other medical or mental problems that make verbal communication difficult or imposible!
Sometimes I go semi-verbal and I’m definitely going to download this app to use for when tht happens. This is an amazing idea! Wish I had heard of it sooner.
as a semiverbal autistic……. this app is BLESSED
there have been different (harrowing) times in my life when i could have used this, and this is my first time seeing it, but i will always reblog.
@thebibliosphere I feel like this may be useful when you have bad throat days.
I used to do that but growing up with two different cultural backgrounds and meeting lots of different people with different cultural & religious background I’ll just drop it like this:
Neurotypicals aren’t worth copying, cause they themselves don’t know what they’re doing at times. They know so little of what they’re doing yet at the same time they think, the way they do things is the only right way even though “proper” behaviour is highly relative and different from culture to culture/religion/etc. They often need to convince themselves, that the way they live and behave is the only “right” way, because they are so insecure about it, when in fact, behaviour is rather relative and depends on conditioning & training. It helps to know how to “act right” in a certain cultural/religious environment but take it with a grain of salt because most neurotypicals really have a hard time “behaving normal” themselves. For me personally, it helped better to learn different kinds of communication styles from different cultural backgrounds and develop my own style from it. Books about body language help, so did business guides about proper body language in transnational/overseas business meetings. They usually give an overview of different cultural behaviour- and communication styles.
For example shaking hands:
For people with muslim backgrounds it is unusual to shake hands with a woman.
In western society, refusing to shake hands with someone (men or women, doesn’t matter) is in contrary seen as rude.
Since there are neurotypicals from both cultural backgrounds who think they are “superior” to the other party and therefore are incredibly salty when you accidentally mix these different styles of communication up (it can happen), I as a person on the spectrum usually go with my own style (fist bump on the street/ in training or a little bow/nod with the upperbody in more formal settings) because copying neurotypicals in this respect just doesn’t work for me.
It might come of as “odd” or “weird” but I am not losing sleep over wondering what I am supposed to do, when there is obviously a “gap” or “contradiction” in behaviour among neurotypicals.
I think when you’re being on the spectrum, it is rather more important to develop a healthy eating and sleeping routine, finding ways to cope with hyperactivity, or lack of impulse control and getting enough rest from the busy and exhausting life of the neurotypicals.

people need to stop leaving intersex people out of conversations about reproductive justice.
intersex people are routinely sterilized at birth, and the choice of whether or not we want to have children is taken from us before we even can reach an age where we would be ready to make that choice.
intersex people and their families are lied to about surgeries that have no medical benefit, because doctors are so worried about making sure that they uphold the binary system and create people who look “normal” instead of preserving our right to consent to what happens to our bodies.
intersex people are often denied access to fertility treatment, or have many barriers to accessing infertility treatment because it is believed that we will not want to have children, or that we should not want to have children.
yet, intersex issues are rarely, if ever, brought up in the context of reproductive rights, despite the fact that bodily autonomy and reproductive justice is a huge issue for the intersex community.
if you’re fighting for reproductive justice, please consider fighting for our rights to choose as well.
Intersex people are also often told that they need to do the most invasive (and most expensive) fertility treatments, without being given a chance for less invasive options, or a full consultation and workup with a fertility team.
Intersex fertility discussions should be individual, and more informed consent behind all fertility options should be considered, just like for perisex people.
I’ve seen intersex people get told their only option was IVF, only to get pregnant without major intervention later because they learned more about their own bodies.
anyway, trans people: it is not ‘too much’ to demand to be accommodated for in the ‘real world’.
it is not too much to demand to be gendered correctly. to have the right to self-identify your gender in all circumstances.
it is not too much for people around you to be conscious of any dysphoria you may have and to accomodate it. for them to avoid words or actions that might trigger it.
it is not too much to require people to use language that you’re comfortable with. to not use any gendered language if that’s what you prefer.
you do not have to suffer in silence to be a ‘good, acceptable’ trans person. demand the world accept you.
this goes extra for disabled trans people and anyone else that requires other accomodations and already struggles with society leaving them behind.
If you guys have ADD/ADHD, autism, OCD, or something else that affects your ability to concentrate, I highly recommend the chrome extension Mercury Reader. You just open whatever link you’re using, then click on the MR icon (it should look like a rocket) and it’ll simplify the page so that it’s in a focus-friendly layout. Instead of having random pictures and word boxes all over the screen, it’ll be in a vertical format with nothing to distract you so you can focus on what’s important. You can also adjust the text size (small, medium, large), font (serif, sans), and theme (light, dark). And the best part is, it’s completely free! It’s honestly one of the best things I’ve ever downloaded.
This is an article without the extension. See that messy format, and how the actual article content only takes up a fraction of the page? It’s no wonder it took me 7 hours to write that paper.
The same article, this time with Mercury. The user-friendly settings are at the top, and the rest of the article is formatted vertically down the middle with no free-roaming pictures or words. How nice.
This might be useful to some of my followers, especially on those recipe blogs which are usually a mass of ads and pictures

Broke: Halle Lidner flirted with Mello because she wanted to have sex with him.
Woke: Halle Lidner flirted with Mello because she’s gay, and overdramatic meaningless flirtation is the primary way that gay men and lesbians express affection for each other.
Prompt: Takada/Lidner Takada flirting with flustered Lidner
Artist’s notes: This was a lot of fun to draw!! I think the Death Note ladies need a little more love sometimes, yknow? Anyway, I had the idea that Takada got her nails done, and was showing them off… along with a little flirting, which got Halle flustered. Maybe they’ll go on a date that night. Also, I didn’t realize how much fun Halle is to draw until now! I didn’t really know what to make her wear, though… anyway, hope you like it! ^-^
