Kwaidan
by Lafcadio Hearn

This was an interesting set of Japanese ghost stories collected back in the early 1900s by Lafcadio Hearn, a British man who moved to Japan and devoted himself to all things Japanese (the original otaku!). There were some really good ones in here, and I recommend checking it out. It’s not too Orientalist, which is a good thing, but he does explain some things that…

My first book for #8intwo Natural Causes. So far, I’m living for this book. I only have about ten minutes into my readathon, but I’m gonna make it up today and tomorrow.

[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman 

Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer

I love how kaiba thinks he and yugi are locked in this epic rivalry for all time and he has to conquer it at all costs because it’s the best way to prove that he IS the best and the king of game title rightfully belongs to him, etc. etc. etc. Like his perspective on their relationship is DRENCHED in drama and pathos at all moments. and meanwhile, to yugi, kaiba is his cranky, somewhat eccentric friend who really sometimes just needs some help

Hey guys I just want to give a heads up. The book Adam by Ariel Schrag has been turned into a movie which has been named as one of the most exciting LGBTQ films of this year. I don’t want to spoil anybody’s fun but you should know before watching that the book is about a cis boy who pretends to be a trans man in order to persuade lesbians to sleep with him. 

It is deeply deeply transphobic. It is lesbophobic as it features a corrective rape narrative (a lesbian does have sex with him and then decides she does love men after all). 

Here is a review of the book by a trans man. I have yet to find one by a lesbian but will edit this if I do. 

This book gives out incredibly harmful notions about trans men and lesbians that are used to hurt them in real life. It’s so entrenched in the narrative that I don’t see how the film can be any better. You can find more info in this twitter thread

I’d like to tell people to boycott it but I can’t tell you what to do. So instead I’m going to ask that you share this because it being named as an exciting new queer film is going to make LGBTQ teens want to see it. And they should know before hand how hurtful it could be. They should be able to arm themselves with that knowledge. 

Please reblog.

For so many years, this was my life. I hope this behavior dies with the Boomer generation.

Oh and to everybody in the notes saying they’d be upset if their children refused to pass on their genetic lineage: Die mad about it.

Eeeh I honestly didnt know where to go with this so. 

Saw some Met Gala photos and was initially going to draw them going to Met Gala but ended up straying from this year’s theme so let’s say there’s a gala at Gotham with the theme Guardians of Gotham. 

Dick’ll probably wear something glittery while Bruce is just. Playing safe with a simple suit.

“i am a monument to all your sins” is such a fucking raw line for a villain it’s amazing that it came from halo, a modernish video game, and not some classical text or mythos

classic texts have nothing on the crazy people come up with in modern times tbh

“I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.”

– Joshua Graham, Who Is A Fallout New Vegas NPC, Something Most People Throwing This Quote Around Don’t Realize

“If the world chooses to become my enemy, I will fight like I always have.”

– Shadow the Hedgehog in what is widely considered one of if not the single worst game in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise

this is the source for this text and it haunts me on a regular basis

“Do you think God stays in heaven because he too, lives in fear of what he’s created?”

-Steve Buscemi’s character in Spy Kids 2

Bilbo: wait I get it now. The dragon is a metaphor for greed and power. We need to ‘defeat’ it by being humble when we get the treasure.

Thorin: Bilbo, for the last time, it’s a real dragon and it has my gold

It’s living in my house, Bilbo

For some ungodly reason “it’s living in my house, Bilbo” struck the same mental note for me as “I’m dying, Squirtle”, and now in my head Bidoof is voiced by Richard Armitage. Help.

That’s not better.

“why is saying ‘i hate pedophilia’ a controversial opinion on this site?”

i’ll tell you, it’s because you fuckers literally call relationships between two adults with an age gap pedophilia

#stop abusing serious terms until they lose all meaning ffs

things I have seen called pedophilia on this hellsite with my own two eyes

- a relationship between two adults with the youngest being 25

- a high school senior dating a high school junior

- a college senior being sexually interested in a college freshman

- size difference fetish art featuring two adult characters

- consenting adults engaging in kink with other consenting adults

- writing about 2 teenagers of similar ages having sex

- shipping characters with vaguely defined ages who are treated as adults in canon

- telling kids that asexuality exists

- sex education

like, I shouldn’t have to ask myself if the person being accused of pedophilia is an actual child molester or if they reblog shippy vo|tron fanart

Antis: Why do people hate us for not liking pedophilia :////

Also Antis: *call out everything under the sun that isn’t pedophilia as pedophilia and then wonder why the fuck nobody takes pedophilia claims seriously anymore*

I wrote this post on September 4th, 2017. It only took a month. (From that point on.)

False callout posts get hundreds if not thousands of notes (albeit at least half of them confused or rejecting the accusations), while posts trying to draw attention to individuals that might pose actual danger go ignored.

There’s something demonstrably harmful to minors and adults alike, especially to victims/survivors - it’s how much of a rhetorical nightmare shipping discourse is, and how much it actually desensitizes people to the subjects in question. You do not want people to become callous and dismissive, but the individuals continuously fabricating accusations, watering down definitions, making completely outrageous claims, and concentrating their opportunistic activism on ‘problematic content’ do everything possible to erode the patience, understanding, sympathy and empathy of the people around them.

Please, please stop trying to sell your ship wars as literally anything else. You’re doing more damage than any piece of fiction possibly could. This is how you are affecting reality, and the effect your actions have is unquestionably bad.

You have to start taking these subjects seriously again. You absolutely have to. When you’re not using certain terms correctly, you’re not respecting their meaning, and you don’t take what they stand for seriously enough, because in your mind the definition can be changed or applied to different things.

Shipping that deals with entirely fictional characters is inconsequential and amoral in every possible instance. This applies to drawn and written works, as well. Fictional characters aren’t real people. Real people law doesn’t apply to them. You need to understand this.

Here’s an example:
Shipping entirely fictional characters -> creates no discomfort for the characters involved, because they are not real; the effect it has on you as a person is your responsibility

Creating/consuming explicit/mature content of entirely fictional characters -> creates no discomfort for the characters involved, because they are not real; the effect it has on you as a person is your responsibility

I’m talking about entirely fictional characters. This excludes the shipping of real people - actual living and breathing human people. Not historical figures. People that are alive today. A person. (We still know what a person is, right?) The shipping of real people is a different subject entirely, and it should be approached differently. Still not a crime. Just different.

The bottom line is:
Stop treating fictional characters like real people.
Stop implying that shipping ‘matters’.
Stop involving serious subjects to give your anti-ship arguments more weight and meaning. It’s just a ship. Calm down.
Stop claiming that fiction has a direct, constant, measurable effect on reality. (It has an effect, but not like you think it does.)
Stop saying “This is abuse/incest/pedophilia/etc” when you really want to say “I don’t like it”.
