I made a Powerpoint!
Feel free to add any info that I left out that you think is important~
My only additions are that panromantic (romantic attraction to all genders) is another orientation, and that some people who identify as biromantic are romantically attracted to more than two genders.
I think of grayromantic and WTFromantic as being broader than described here, but that’s really just semantic hairsplitting, no point debating it..
Otherwise this is excellent and much-needed. Well done.
Is it just me or is Sherlock morphing into Sheldon Cooper from TBBT? Both characters are a massive pain in the posterior, yet everyone around them humours and/or worships them, and their behaviour is hardly ever questioned. Although in the case of Sheldon, he shows autistic traits which are handwaved (“I’m not insane! My mother had me tested!”), whereas Sherlock is constantly heaped with false diagnoses (psycho/sociopathy).
I’ve only seen a bit of TBBT but it wouldn’t surprise me if this narrative were a trend. Although that’s a horrible thought.
i want to write the kind of short stories you read in english class that are on this weird level of surrealism that they still haunt you years down the road

This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.
These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.
I would like to bring an issue to your attention and ask for your help, if you’d like to aid me in ridding YouTube of aggressive men that want to use sexual humiliation and harassment as a punishment for women that talk about feminism online.
Please turn your attention to a couple of the comments I have recently received on my YouTube channel. Now, hate is nothing new, and I am fully prepared for it, but I find these attacks particularly disturbing.
Needless to say, I am not the girl in the video. I say girl, because the person in this clip seems disturbingly young.
(Regardless of that, even if I was, consensual sexual behaviour does not somehow negate the opinions of a woman and I despise people that try to use sex to shame women and shut them down.)
It’s quite disgusting, I think, that sex is being used as a weapon here, as something violent and punishing, and this on a video discussing rape no less.
I would like your help in getting these two foul creatures off YouTube, and you can do this by reporting them or even commenting on their channels.
Here are the links you will need:
Let these two disgusting excuses for human beings know that this is not acceptable, and that we won’t stand for it.
I am utterly fed up of the misogyny feminists receive online, but the fact porn is now involved, makes this sexual harassment.
Thank you for your time. Please reblog this and help if you can.
The internet will be a better place without men like this.
"I’m a woman and I’m not offended by this, clearly it isn’t sexist!"
wow I didn’t realise you were the singular spokesperson for 3.5 billion people of different ages, races, religions, backgrounds, sexual orientations, social classes, and cultures, I’m so sorry
Oh man, all these people are playing Animal Crossing New Leaf and it’s their first Animal Crossing game ever and they’re totally missing out on some poignant story elements.
In each game you can talk to Sable every day and she’ll gradually open up to you and tell you more about her life.
When the Able Sisters were young their parents passed away. Mable was too young to understand the situation, and Labelle was older and frustrated and ran away to the big city leaving Sable to act as the sole parent to Mable. These events left Mable introverted and withdrawn. She works so hard because she had to take on the responsibility of raising Mable after their parents died and her big sister abandoned her.
In Animal Crossing City Folk, you can enter Gracie’s shop to buy high-end clothing and one of her employees is Labelle, the lost Able sister. Through a series of conversations with various characters you can trick Labelle into dropping her phoney proper accent and speaking in a more relaxed “country” accent. She opens up and talks about her past and her family. In New Leaf, Labelle has moved home. In the back of her shop you can see a newspaper clipping and a ribbon that used to be part of her old uniform.
If you consider that newspaper clipping compared to the backstory from the previous games it paints a sad picture. Labelle moved to the city to get away from her family but she fell on hard times and her family took her back. People who haven’t played the previous games don’t realize what a big deal it is to see those three sisters finally reunited in the same store!
In Wild World, Sable would get sad sometimes around January. If you talk to her consistently she’ll tell you this story about Tom Nook:
“Well, the first letter I got from him arrived at just around this time of year… The other day, before bed, I pulled that letter out… and just looked at it. Tee hee! It was adorable! Sure, the handwriting was a little messy, but… You could hear his determination in every word of that letter… Sweet, young Tom Nook… His call to arms, his ethos, was “Dreams before money!” He was so pure that people wondered if he’d survive this crazy old world. I did too. Every night before falling asleep, I would wish him… ‘Please keep Tom Nook’s pure spirit protected,” I’d whisper in the darkness. “Keep him safe from the apathy that breeds in the alleys of the big city…’
I don’t know why I’ve told you so much about Tom Nook and I… All those memories of our shared youth must bore you. Please forgive me.
[Tell Me More!]
…Ohh, OK, if you insist!
“The Tom Nook that left for the big city… He sent me letters quite frequently, actually. One day, I received a wooden box, not a letter. When I opened it, I was quite astonished!
Oh goodness, no! Are you kidding?! [NAME], I think you’ve been watching too many made-for-TV movies! …Ohh, I’m so sorry. Heh, I didn’t mean to snap. That just took me off guard.
No, inside the box, there was a pair of fancy, burnt-orange colored… scissors. Incredibly strong and sharp scissors! The finest scissors I’d ever laid eyes on. The enclosed letter said, “Happy birthday, Sable!” So…sweet… At the time, I was so busy that I’d even forgotten it was my birthday. To think Tom Nook had remembered it… I’m sure life was hard for Tom Nook in the city during that time… I know his job paid poorly, so for him to buy those scissors for me… When I think about it, it makes me so happy that I cry!
Oh really, [NAME]… You want to hear my memories again? I’m warning you, not all my memories are fond ones you know…
Well, we shared a lot of good times, Tom Nook and I. Before there was an observatory in dear old [TOWN NAME]… We used to climb up the roof when we wanted to look at the stars… Ohh, yes! We even made constellations together, I remember! I made one called the “Star Shirt.” Tom Nook’s looked like one of those old-time markets. He called it… “The Farmer’s Market Bargain Bin Constellation.” Ohh that takes me back…
Yes, it is… Shortly after that, Tom Nook moved to the big city… Yes, he left to chase his dreams… When he returned to [TOWN NAME], he came back a totally different soul… I still believe that… if he had just clung to those sweet memories like I do… he would have shaken off the heartsickness of those city years… Memories can be sad, but they can also save you…”
There seems to be a general theme in the Able Sisters storyline of the city representing running away. The implication is that the fast lifestyle of the city can make you sick with ennui and that taking it easy in a small town is the cure. The Animal Crossing series, as a whole, is about not running.
The literal act of “running” is the only thing that the game ‘punishes’ you for doing - you’ll destroy flowers, scare away fish and bugs, and gradually tear away the grass. But the game still gives you the option to run, because it’s about choosing to slow down and enjoy the journey. It’s not about beginnings or endings, it’s about the calmness between those events. It’s sort of like the video game version of the Japanese concept of ma. Animal Crossing is a really beautiful thing and I’m so happy it exists.
damn i know both of these stories and i never connected any of it to the running thing good job animal crossing
• make me feel guilty for walking quickly why don't you • animal crossing
Every localized Ace Attorney changes the setting from Japan to America and it gets funnier with every game since they get more and more Japanese and the new one is set in 19th century Japan
EAT YOUR HAMBURGERS, RYUUNOSUKE
Ah, yes, the Meiji era of our great state of California, when the shoguns and emperor were contesting the territory of Los Angeles.
The localization team may have dug themselves into a pretty big hole here.
• oh i didn't even think of this • oh boY this'll be interesting • ace attorney
Alas, poor Yorick. You were glam as fuck.
