    This isnt funny at all but it came to me in a vision

    [id/transcript: a simole digital sketch comic of egwene and erlin kindleaf.

    Egwene, holding a hand to her chest: I’m like, a relationship expert or whatever

    Erlin: kissing one girl at camp doesn’t make you an expert. It’s also not a relationship

    Egwene, holding up two fingers: Hey. I have kissed two girls, that’s more than you. Loser.

    Erlin, objecting: i’m gay!?

    Egwene, out of panel: so am i dumbass, you’re not special.

    End id/transcript.]

    #ive been working on this essay for like 3 hours my brain is in another plane rn #my art#egwene kindleaf#erlin kindleaf #i just think that at the end of the day they’re siblings and therefore they dunk on each other its my beliefs as a person with siblings #also yes i did get up and force myself to hold a pencil for 15 minutes for this im making bad decisions tonight

    Ever since I made it through the climax of Pokemon X recently (which I hadn't touched last since 2013), I've been thinking...

    Obligatory precursor that I absolutely do not condone mass ecogenocide in any form... (I just realized that makes that look worse than it actually is sjdhfhfjs)

    ...But damn, you can't tell me Lysandre's words about the human race acting in greedy and wasteful and self destructive ways doesn't hit way fucking harder post the start of COVID (when we got a lovely preview of how the elite will make every possible decision to save their skins and maximize outer suffering during a global crisis), versus freaking 2013:

    "Whether it's money or energy, the ones who steal are the ones who win in this world."

    "...When there is only one of something, it can't be shared. When something can't be shared, it will be fought over. And when something is fought over, some must survive without it... the only thing left to do is squabble over the remaining scraps of hope."

    (After Shauna and Calem/Serena propose that people should help each other in building a beautiful world) "If that were possible, all wars would have ended long ago! I can only see one future! One where selfish, foolish humans think about nothing other than themselves and steal more and more from one another... It's a tragic future!"

    Look me straight in the eyes and tell me that this is not our current trajectory under late stage capitalism (Space-X, anyone?), our current structures of inequitable power and agency, and the converging catastrophes inherent to the climate crisis.

    Like... OK, obviously I don't believe annihilating everyone except some select group of Elite is the way to go here. That's a fucking evil of Bezo-Musk proportions. Nor do I believe those that ask for help are weak and therefore are unworthy of being saved.

    Yet I find it pretty chilling, and even a little sad, that my own cynical reflections of humanity and the teetering state of the world are... so close to his own. If not identical!

    ...But then he comes to the wrong conclusions! It's not population pressures responsible for this, it's the avarice and ego of the privileged few and their absolutely dominant sway over world affairs that led us here...

    I was naive at the age of 13. I hadn't even the slightest idea of how bad things were, so I never dreamed of agreeing with The Bad Guy on anything. Seeing how much that has changed in as little as 8 years... It's disheartening.

    Nor, quite frankly, did I realize how calculated (and yet how precarious and unsustainable) the status quo was to begin with. Taking a look at history and seeing the same mass events of corruption and needless suffering again and again, and then having it unfold before your very eyes without ethical or moral consequence... That does a number to your spirit and faith in humanity. Particularly when the most radical extents of human antipathy and soul-rot have been put on blast and shoved down your throat at all times over the past two years.

    But even so... I don't know, man. I'm an empath. My instinct is to help the hurting and lift up the downtrodden in whatever small ways I can. I may not know all possible flavors of suffering, but I know enough to know no one else should be in any kind of pain. No one should go through what I did (and what I didn't) go through.

    And ultimately, besides the occasional neo-nazi decking... Only harnessing our innate human trait to love, to be in a community, to romanticize the small moments that bind us together... That's what has the best chance of saving us. Not a Thanos-style annihilation.

    "Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that."

    #idk what this is tbh #May Speaks#pokemon xy#Lysandre#covid#current events#commentary #TL;DR I am more sympathetic to some of Lysandre's observations/beliefs but DEFINITELY NOT ALL OF THEM NOR HIS SOLUTION

    It never happened.

    there it is. the thing i fear the most. every waking moment I live in anguish of it. Did it really happen if no one was there. 

    #the thing i fear most. #just realized. #I have not been trying to agrgue that it happened #but instead struggling with the belief that it didn't. #cptsd. #i don't have a formal diagnosis #but if you know what you have you can treat it. and a close proximation to it is better than nothing. #the belief that nothing happened. #hm #what an interesting thing.

    some helpful clarification, since some of y'all are confused

    what unpacking ur transmisogyny does not mean:

    - performing sexual acts u are not comfortable with for any reason

    what unpacking ur transmisogyny does mean:

    - unlearning ur preconceived biases and assumptions about some women's bodies

    - realizing that penises are not masculine, predatory, aggressive, or tools of penitration and can infact be feminine and delicate

    - realizing that ur assumptions about what a womans body looks like are rooted in racism and misogyny

    - understanding that all attempts to categorize and standardize what a womans body "must" look like is always just an attempt to police and control women

    - unlearning the lie that u can tell someones gender based on their physical features and that that gender predicts anything about them

    - undoing ur association of vaginas with safety and penises with violence. no one is inherently a safe person to be around just because of their genitalia

    and the crux of what this all boils down to is to stop looking at men and women as separate categories of human beings defined by arbitrary physical characteristics

    we are all variations on a human being. we are a spectrum of presentation. having a penis or a vagina is no different a variation than having blue or brown eyes and says just as little about a person

    because what a womans body looks like does not define her as a person

    #jack.speaks #I think a really negative side effect of ppl not arguing with t*rfs anymore is that we also stopped outlining why their beliefs are wrong #u can't just say trans women are women without understanding what that really fully means #I'm seeing a lot of trans inclusive ppl who don't realize they are still harbering gender essentialist bias #and that is making leftist spaces inscreasingly more hostile to trans women #and that is a Big Problem

    //: Thinking about it and Soundwave was probably a thief at some point. There is half the time he just knows the correct connections and things like that from spy work. But pretty sure that he snuck away with a few things like medical supplies for Medics that couldn’t get them or at lest Energon that didn’t taste like crap

    “To be loved by God is the highest relationship.” – Henry Blackaby

    “3 Reasons A Loving Relationship Is The Highest” By ChristianQuotes.info

    1. “Nothing Else Matters: When people genuinely ask why I believe in a God that I cannot see, I tell them that we believe in things that we cannot see all the time. For example, we believe in gravity, although we can’t see it. We believe in love, but is it something tangible? No, so in the same way, we believe in God because you and I have faith in God, which is a conviction in things not seen (Heb. 11:1b). Even though we have faith in a God we cannot see, we have this assurance that He exists (Heb. 11:1a). Our relationship with God is the highest, most important relationship we will ever have in our lives. It is much more important than our family, our friends, our church brothers and sisters, and our co-workers because they can’t save us from our sin and they couldn’t die to save us. Some of these people will refuse to believe in Christ, and these relationships will end at Christ’s appearing, but our relationship with God will extend into all eternity (John 3:16). Nothing else matters compared to having a saving and loving relationship with God.

    2. For God So Loves You! We all know John 3:16 by heart, but think about this: Jesus asked for those who were nailing Him to the cross to be forgiven because they really didn’t know what they were doing (Luke 23:34). I wonder whether the Roman centurion would have had a way to be forgiven if Jesus had not asked the Father to forgive them for that since he finally believed (Luke 23:47). My wife says that childbirth and kidney stones are close to being the same in painful intensity. Now imagine Jesus hanging on the cross for six hours to prove His love for us, who are sinners. Isn’t that the greatest demonstration of love that’s ever been displayed? What other person would die such an excruciating death for those who didn’t deserve it? That is the consummate revelation of agape, or godly love, and that’s the extent to which He went to show His love for us and is truly the highest form of love ever shown. That’s why to be loved by God is far and away the highest relationship there is.

    3. His Love Never Fails. God’s love never fails, and He never gives up on us, even when we give up on Him (Psalm 136:1-2), which is why He is worthy to be worshipped. The Hebrew word for worship is “shachah” and means to “bow down to” or “to depress,” and it is literally “to touch the forehead to the ground.” Isn’t He worthy of such? The Greek word for worship is “proskyneō” and means “to kiss the hand” and again, as with the Hebrew word, “to touch the ground with the forehead.” It is to lay ourselves prostrate before Him and kneel to pay homage to the King of kings because His love never fails and He never gives up on us, even when we are forsaking Him. Is there any greater relationship possible?

    A Closing Prayer: Oh Great God, You are so worthy to be worshipped because of the great display of love You proved for us at Calvary. There is no greater love than Yours because You are faithful, and I thank You, oh great God in heaven, for the love You have shown us. Nothing else could ever compare with having a loving relationship with You.”

    I don't know why it annoys me so much when german leftists/queer groups cannot express themselves without using english vocab but it really really does

    #if i have to read 'safer space' one more time......hhhhhhahhhhhhhh #WHAT DOES IT MEAN #WHY NOT JUST SAY SICHERER ORT #its so confusing to read and have to switch languages every other word like literally what is the reason #americas influence...bah.. #okay real thoughts about this: i think that the popular belief is that since everybody is Very Online everybody should know the english #*terms for these things #when that is absolutely not the case #it's just confusing and alienating #(wanna be rly clear tho that im not advocating for language purity or whatever the fuck #i just think it's less accessible to people who are not in our age and social group)

    #2.3 genshin spoilers #im doubtful on some of the alchemy stuff in genshin ... but idk if its my lacking of knowledge or #if they added more of a magic/fantasy element #creating new life and stuff IS a belief in alchemy in some parts of the world tho so that holds up like ive mnetioned before

    Day 336: The Value of The Power of Belief

    Day 336: The Value of The Power of Belief

    Till the dirt, plant the seeds, tend the garden, and watch your dreams grow. Do you remember the movie Field of Dreams? Ray, played by Kevin Costner, hears a mysterious voice as he walks through his cornfields, whispering in his ears, “if you build it, they will come.” Was it the power of suggestion, working with blind faith, or the power of belief in something that is beyond our understanding?…

    “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” —Ecclesiastes 3:1 (WEB)
    “There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time. ” —Ecclesiastes 3:1 (ERV)

    “From Seedtime to Harvest” By Joyce Meyer - “Promises For Your Everyday Life Devotional”

    “Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us that there is a season for everything. We don't all live in the same season at the same time. You should never be jealous of someone who is enjoying harvest while you're still in the planting season. Remember, they had to go through a season of planting just as you are.

    Seedtime represents learning the will of God. Each time I choose God's will instead of my own, I'm planting a good seed that will eventually bring a harvest in my life.

    Between seedtime and harvest comes a time of waiting. Roots shoot down, digging their way through the ground. It takes time for this to happen, and it takes place underground. Above the ground, you can't tell anything is happening.

    After we plant seeds of obedience, we feel like nothing is happening, but all kinds of things are happening inside where we can't see. And like the seed that finally bursts through the ground with a beautiful green shoot, our seeds of obedience will finally break forth into a beautiful manifestation of God in our lives.

    Prayer Starter: Lord, because seedtime is necessary for harvest time, I won't get discouraged while I'm waiting and feeling like nothing's happening. I will continue to obey and trust You, knowing that You will bring me into my harvest at just the right time.”
