it’s important to give your werewolf pals a belly rub every once in a while
please for the love of god turn ur sound on
*boston accent* “It takes a pet like NO PRABLEM! Nat afraid at alll, Thats a great cat right there..”
Here he is all grown up!
His name is Maui and he still takes a pat like no phrawblem
But he’s still giving you the stink eye because he’s actually a New York bodega cat at Willy’s Deli in Brooklyn and you know how New Yorkers are about Bostonians
That’s a great cat right there
Also his whittle white peety paws 😍😍😍
You know what Good Omens does NOT get enough credit for? How it never, not once, makes gender presentation the butt of a joke.
Crowley presenting as female to be Warlock’s Nanny? The way this was filmed, acted, and written wasn’t made to be funny whatsoever. She was stunning, I loved the hat!
Pollution using they/them pronouns while the postman used the gender neutral honorific of sir for them? What’s there to make fun of? They’re royalty.
Archangel Michael, who has a traditionally male name, played by a female actress? Never questioned.
Lord Beelzebub’s androgyny? Only respect for the Lord of Hell.
Aziraphale sharing Madame Tracy’s body? Crowley recognized his angel and accepted it no problem. He was right about the dress too, it did suit him!
Crowley’s pure, unfiltered non-binary/gender-fluid energy in general? Fucking fabulous. Who could seriously make fun of this demon’s style? As someone once pointed out to me, you could swap him with Tilda Swinton and I’d see no difference. What an icon.
Good Omens is the first big show I’ve seen to basically avoid transphobia all together when the opportunity presented itself, and even say fuck you to the gender binary as a bonus. If the biggest binary in all the universe, Heaven and Hell, don’t give a damn about it then why should you?
Thank you! That was definitely what we were going for. I’m not certain we always achieved it – or at least, people didn’t always seem to see that was what we were doing. (It made me sad when a few people on Twitter reacted to Crowley-as-nanny as if it was meant to be a transphobic man-in-a-dress joke.)
For our angels and demons, it was intensely liberating having male and female actors auditioning for the same roles, and just picking the ones who we felt nailed the characters best.
Also, can I just hear a wahoo for the wonderful Archangel Uriel, Gloria Obianyo?
Remember like five weeks ago when I got yelled at on here for saying Biden and Trump had exactly the same covid response plan?
Y'all wrote whole ass essays defending this man just for him to say there’s nothing we can do 3 days into his presidency
fuck all philosophy except for whatever the hell Diogenes was trying to teach
How about just being polite & going into a debate with those who hold diffrent beliefs then you?
how about you eat my shit and hair
staying true to spirit
the OG of the vicious burn
Diógenes said you couldn’t spit anywhere but in the face of a rich man because once this rich dude invited him into his house and literally told him you can’t spit on anything that touches the floor so Diógenes spit in this guys face
here is a very good painting of Diógenes in his tub that i had the good fortune of actually seeing earlier this year
I love that Diogenes is making a comeback in the twenty-first century.
Diogenes also attended many of Plato’s lessons, not because he was interested or even to debate him but he would bring food with him and purposefully eat obnoxiously loud
Artsy depression: haunted eyes, good at art, emo hair and eyeliner on point
Actual Depression: bloodshot eyes, no longer trust themselves with pencils, has not showered in five days
Quirky OCD: organized books, clean room, color coordinated outfits
Actual OCD: Intrusive thoughts, flipping the light switch 8 times so you don’t stab your brother, picking holes in your skin
Cute eating disorders: Slim trim and beautiful, shyly refusing a second helping, dancer aesthetic
Actual eating disorders: Puffy cheeks and eroded teeth from excessive vomiting, hair growing over your freezing body and refusing to eat carrots because they’re too high in carbs
Adorable anxiety: just a smol bean, soft, must be protected from the world
Actual anxiety: crying so hard you throw up, shaking, losing sleep over a period after the “okay”
RPG PTSD: flashbacks, vietnam, u don’t know what i’ve been through kiddo
Actual PTSD: Buying your first pregnancy test at twelve, flinching at high fives, i can’t feel my hands where am I what year is it
Cartoon ADHD: look a squirrel, something shiny, fidgety loveable bufoon
Actual ADHD: rereading the same page over and over because it doesn’t make sense, hasn’t done the laundry in four months, hyperfocusing on a mushroom knowing you have work to do
stop making terrifying realities seem cute. it’s disrespectful for those of us who are actually struggling
Don’t forget about autism! Autism has been portrayed horribly in media and continues to be. Autism is not just a child who doesn’t talk and is shy, and who likes really weird things but is fun to have around because they are “different”. Autism happens in adults and young adults. Autism is not just “I am just special and different uwu”. Being autistic is an experience that cannot be contained or labelled. It is a spectrum, one autistic kid might learn to mask and are able to talk and socialize with no issue, one might not be able to talk or struggles socially. Some are a mix of both. They are all equally autistic, there are no “classic cases”.
Watering down Neurodivergence in media is something awful, media affects how people see people who suffer with them.
tl;dr don’t romanticize neurodivergence/mental illness.

Dr. Olivia OctaviusSpider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
HEY AUNTY YOU WANNA TELL US SOMETHING
I just wanna remind everyone that there was a time in the Spider Man comics that Aunt May was gonna marry Doc Ock
and throw in that this would be a GREAT continuity to bring that back in.
Mx. Moz did fan art of that cover. Link to artist https://twitter.com/MLeeLunsford/status/1084990686892453888
So can we all just report her
“Harassed” she attempted to poison her roommate in numerous ways, who as a result was left incredibly sick and traumatized.
The victim, Jazzy Rowe, has a GoFundMe that I haven’t seen being spread: gf.me/u/j5anmn
She hasn’t met her goal in 9 months.
You may not be able to donate, but you better believe I’m judging every single one of you if you don’t reblog this to atleast spread the word like yall do for all these wyt pipo claiming to need $100k for vet bills or $75k for school supplies.
As of April 11, 2020, she still hasn’t reached her goal, please boost!!!
This disgusting behaviour left a girl physically and psychologically ill. On top of medical bills to pay, this young woman was unable to attend school due to illness, and now has to pay for wasted student loans. She worked extra hard to get to college, only to be literally poisoned by an aggressively racist room mate, for which she continues to pay dearly. This is unacceptable.
Please help Jazzy Rowe recover from this. If you can’t contribute financially, you can still do your part by passing this on.
We’re a little closer!!
People may be seeing this and thinking it’s old because they’ve seen it for a couple years now; it was created May 2018 and TODAY ( May 5th, 2020 ) she has STILL not reached her goal!! Please at least reblog and give her a boost.
unable to donate, but able to reblog.
- all of us
I will write down the urls of everyone who reblogs this and present it to my mum.
Someone I knew realized he was gay when he was less than 10 years old, so I’m sure the same can be true for trans and non-binary people realizing their gender too.
i knew since i was 3, i just didn’t know what it was
Got a few friends who talked about it n all at like 5 and we all tried to find the word out until a teacher told us what it is/what it means at like 7.
i just never realized it until it hit me like a truck haha

I just would like to thank everyone who ever reblogs this so that it somehow ends up back on my dash because I usually need the reminder (especially the drinking water one)
Yo. Many of you need to take an entire stadium of seats. Like a football arena in Texas number.
I coined neurodivergent before tumblr was even a thing, like a decade or more ago, because people were using ‘neurodiverse’ and ‘neurodiversity’ to just mean autistic, & possibly LDs. But there’s more, like way more, ways a person can have a different yet fucking perfect dammit brain.
Neurodivergent refers to neurologically divergent from typical. That’s ALL.
I am multiply neurodivergent: I’m Autistic, epileptic, have PTSD, have cluster headaches, have a chiari malformation.
Neurodivergent just means a brain that diverges.
Autistic people. ADHD people. People with learning disabilities. Epileptic people. People with mental illnesses. People with MS or Parkinsons or apraxia or cerebral palsy or dyspraxia or no specific diagnosis but wonky lateralization or something.
That is all it means. It is not another damn tool of exclusion. It is specifically a tool of inclusion. If you don’t want to be associated with Those People, then YOU are the one who needs another word. Neurodivergent is for all of us.
Neurodivergent K of Radical Neurodivergence Speaking
Okay hi tumblr..,..
What’s up. I have OCD and anxiety, and here on tungl dot com, there is a nice little type of post that makes my blood pressure flip the fuck out every time, and it’s those “if you are reading this [x]” / “reblog and [y] will happen” type reblog memes
You know the ones: money cat, lucky xyz post, that sort of shit. The revival of old school yahoo viral email chains. Even immunity rabbit or whatever – same premise. Anything that says, ‘By reading or reblogging this post, you are activating some specific effect.’
Basically, most people can probably ignore them easily if they don’t like them; but others, especially those with particular psychological conditions (aka, ME) can actually suffer stress responses to posts like this. Obsessive-compulsive, schizophrenic spectrum, anxious, paranoid, magical thinking type disorders especially can see a superstitious post and have it automatically activate an anxious or compulsive reaction, because to the brain, it’s like a new rule/parameter has suddenly been introduced to your environment without warning. Now suddenly, whatever atypical structures frame your brain function have to accommodate for an alien factor. <- I don’t know if any of this really makes sense; it’s hard to articulate in a NT-accessible manner, but hopefully the general gist comes through.
Anyway. So far it’s been basically impossible for me (and therefore, I presume, others as well) to avoid posts like this, because they don’t tend to have any sort of universally recognized term to tag warn for. As a result I’m basically always playing Russian roulette with my dashboard.
A while ago, I asked tweeter followers to vote on the best thing to call these, and most agreed that ‘superstitious posts’ was fitting. So now I’m asking tomblr users to consider making my life and others’ lives easier and less stressful in One Easy Step:
tag for #superstitious posts !
It would… honestly make a big difference if this were standardized and I will be eternally grateful ❤️😪
(Ok & encouraged for ppl to reblog this!!!)
