not modelling just casually getting my ass kicked
Ridiculously Photogenic Karate Dude
I like this.
Just to nitpick a bit: it’s Ridiculously Photogenic *Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Dude
And this picture’s even better when you realize he’s the one doing the ass-kicking. He’s got the other guy in what’s called an omoplata (shoulder lock with his leg.)
artificiallamplight asked: Honey, I'm home. (did I win your hand in marriage?)
I got married?! ( (▰˘◡˘▰) “Smoopsy-poo!”—A nickname from Monster’s Inc. I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist!)
WIFE *hugs wife*
Wait, does this mean I’m double-married? Do we have to move out to Kansas and join that polygamist colony of mormons? Are mormons accepting of trans dudes married to cis dudes and tiny adorable ninjas? Maybe I should just stop asking all of the questions.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

WHAT KIND OF SADISTIC MONSTER CREATED THIS!!!
i wish more people knew about/accepted asexuality and less people made this joke
THIS. FUCKING THIS THIS THIS
in addition: don’t tell us you’re underage if you’re reading our porn, because that totally fucks us over legally. we cannot be deliberately and knowingly providing obscene material to minors, and if you think about it laws like that are good and exist for good reasons. but still, please be responsible enough to keep us safe like we’re trying to keep you safe.
This goes hand-in-hand with “if you’re at barstuck and aren’t 21 please don’t” but it’s far more serious. This is not about how “mature” you feel or “age is a number.” This is about legality and trying to keep ourselves, our lives and our jobs safe, and letting us try to keep you safe.
I’m sure its been pointed out but if you are underage and posting nude photos of yourself online you can also be charged for distributing the images. It’s just a bad idea in every conceivable way.
I can also state that I’ve witnessed that kind of stuff in the tags and its so CONCERNING and tbh gross. But I do want to add another thing to this. I don’t want to point fingers but I can name some artists that have asked people to send them nudes just for funsies and they should be ashamed of themselves for using their status in the fandom to ask people for nudes. There is no way to filter that only 18+ people are sending you photos and you could have a bunch of 14 year olds sending you photos for all you know and that could land you in serious trouble.
I know there are a lot of underaged kids in the homestuck fandom (read: probably every single one of them) who are seeing this post go around right now and are rolling their eyes or some shit. That’s cool but consider this: I have personally blocked more people for being underaged than any other reason at all. Go ahead and read that last sentence again. All of those people were blocked for messaging my nsfw homestuck blog on anon and telling me that they were underage. Even if they were lying for fun, do you think that matters? Some of them even came crawling back to me on other accounts begging for forgiveness, but do you think that matters? LAUGHS AT YOU no it doesn’t. That remains to be my biggest blocking spree up to date and plenty of shit has happened since then, ok. Even though the blog in question currently has over 2k followers there are times where I still considering deleting it. Because the idea of having kids on it is gross. Go ahead and read that last sentence again. I will block anyone off that blog if they so much as LOOK at me the wrong way, so don’t think just because your ass is underage that you can get away with being a shitlord. I’ve got zero tolerance for that shit.
One of the comments on a recent @roachpatrol post was about how people assume that cis implies het. And there’s a reason for this, which turns out to be the same reason a lot of anti-gay people simply take it for granted that gay people are massively sex-obsessed:
When you are thinking about a category, you think about the traits of the category, and you assume the members of the group have similar traits and that those traits are similarly significant. And you tend to ignore other traits, or other possible overlapping categories.
So since “het” is a likely default (statistically normal, even if you don’t consider it morally normative), if you try to think of a Generic Cis Person, the generic cis person will be het, because most of them are, so that’s representative. And if you think of a generic “het” person, they’re going to be cis, because again, most of them are, so that’s representative. This is why tumblr is full of people who assume that a straight white male has never been the subject of oppression. They know that “straight”, “white”, and “male” are markers for probably-not-oppressed, and those are the only traits they’re thinking about. They’re not considering whether the male might be trans, or might be autistic, or might be otherwise disabled or anything like that. They’re just thinking about the traits they mentioned. And that creates some pretty serious blind spots.
And that’s why the anti-gay people assume gay people are obsessed with sex. The definition of the category is sexual behavior or desire, so when they think of “a gay person”, they’re thinking of a person whose most important trait is that they have, or want, gay sex. So they assume that person is pretty obsessed with sex.
It’s a dumb assumption, and it stays dumb most of the time. Even people who are trying really hard to be conscious of this stuff will get it wrong, because it’s so inherent to how the human brain comes up with sample cases to test claims against. You can have a room full of people who are fanatically devoted to avoiding cisnormativity, show them a picture of a pair of people in 1920s-era clothes where the one in the suit looks sort of feminine and the one in the dress looks masculine, and they’ll talk about the social implications and maybe how these people were challenging the gender binary by crossdressing… But they’ll very rarely mention or consider the question of whether they’ve read the genders of those people correctly.
