sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today,…
My wedding is October 25th, and unfortunately Kaeda isn’t invited. I need someone to watch her free of charge for that weekend. I was going to have my neighbor do it, but her dog has gotten aggressive towards other dogs, and I just don’t feel safe keeping her there.
I know it’s a lot to ask - and a long shot - but can any of you lovely dog people be able to watch her for that weekend?
We live in Connecticut.
Well I was going to offer that Kaeda stay with Makena but… we live in texas.
If someone cheats on you they do not love you, remember that. If someone cheats on you they do not care about you as much as they say they do. If someone cheats on you it means that for a split second you were off their mind long enough for them to put another person in arms that should only be for you. If someone cheats on you, dear god, I hope you don’t go back to them because you are worth so much more than that.
If someone accuses you of cheating when you haven’t, they don’t love you as much as you love them. The reason is that they’re entertaining the possibility, and therefore lack the trust. It’s an even bigger chance that they cheated on you, and rationalize by convincing themselves that you are cheating, too.
which is great for them. I don’t think they’ve updated their site since the turn of the century. I think it’s very catchy to the eye, it’s very bright and forward-thinking. But I don’t think it’s original. it looks a lot like other sites, like Manhunt, or even some of the video sites you have to join. There’s a general complication to it. It’s too cluttered. I remember that I was struggling in the beginning when I joined the site and I was attempting to learn where everything was. And a part of me wonders if that is the way I feel right now, so there’s that.
So while it looks nice, it feels clunky and messy; I’m not a huge fan. It feels like it’s trying too hard to join the rest of the sites instead of striking out on its own.
A video game in which every time you die your injured limbs and body parts are replaced by machines and you slowly become less and less human until the point in which you have no human body parts left and you must decide whether you will continue to fight for humanity of which you have no connection left with
Come on, dude, really? The tweet about not having to read misogynistic gender dynamics into your stories? What about "books are for their readers"? Does that only apply when there ISN'T a large amount of readers saying something about your novels that you don't agree with ? I love your works, but not how defensive and pretentious you get about their problematic characteristics.
The tweets in question were not about my books. They were about Twilight. (I soon thereafter clarified the comments in a blog post. The tl;dr here is that I feel women writers receive much more vitriolic criticism on average than male writers, and that I’d like to see the problematic gender dynamics in works by male writers explored more in critical discourse.)
Recently, a screencap of two of the tweets has circulated on tumblr with people saying that I was commenting on my own books. I was not. I don’t know how this confusion arose, except that it’s very hard to source things in a world with so much information.
