On this blog you will find some writing, some politics, occasional art, lots of feminism & Sherlock, and my own personal ramblings. Blog should probably be considered NSFW, just to be, ya know, safe.
I tag the shit out of most things, and am happy to tag anything you're trying to avoid via tumblr savior, triggers, spoilers, etc; just let me know in an ask. I also queue almost everything, so I may or may not actually be here for any given post.
So in class the other day we were learning about the sleeping habits of newborn babies when one of the guys says “I would nickname my baby Gotham, so in the middle of the night when the baby cries my partner can whisper “Gotham needs you” and I would feel excellent about having to get out of bed”.
just so we’re clear:
- getting called out for doing something shitty is not the same as “getting hate”
- if someone is telling you that you did something shitty, they are not criticizing you as a person
- messing up does not make you an irredeemably awful human being
- but how you respond to criticism can be a pretty good indicator of your awfulness
Internalize the bold.
ok but when people say “that character isn’t canonically gay” when they’re talking about a character whose sexuality is never actually mentioned in the books/show/whatever. no. no actually u chose to infer that the character is canonically straight because u think straight is the automatic sexuality of all beings unless the word “gay” is in bolded size 60 font and that’s shitty
