Creativity Flows in Technicolor

My name is Jem. I am 18, asexual, agender, and aromantic. I go by ey/er/em pronouns. My about page is here

I am sex repulsed so there's not usually much nsfw on my blog. If there is it will be tagged "nsfw"

Soon to be in majoring and hopefully getting a career in Graphic Design so any info on resources for that field (such as any places to get programs or equipment for less) would be helpful and much appreciated! <3

haha can’t wait for Big Hero 6 to win 50 millions awards for being ‘progressive’ and ‘groundbreaking’  because DISNEY while Book of Life gets ignored despite likely being the most visually pleasing and fantastically written animated movie in the last decade

I’m not sure which flag that is, but I like this.

This is the nonbinary flag! The nonbinary flag is separate from the genderqueer flag now, for a handful of reasons, like some people not being okay with the q slur. We use the genderqueer flag still because one of our mods is sensitive to the color yellow (which is nicely diminished in saturation in this image) and gets nauseated.

reminder that women, trans or cis, calling out trans mens misogyny is not transphobia

It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.

Okay, see, we talked about this linguisitic phenomenon in my grammar class. I don’t remember what it’s called, but it happens with other words, too - my professor used an example of “uncomfortable.” When you say it out loud, most likely, it sounds more like “un-comf-ter-ble,” thus mixing up the position of the r and the t, like how the k and the s are mixed in this speech pattern. However, not many people are out here acting high and mighty because someone said “uncomfterble” like they are with “ax,” and that has absolutely everything to do with academic biases - because “ax” is associated mostly with Black people (and occasionally lower-class whites), it’s viewed as “improper” speech, whereas most people, even middle &amp; upper class white people who are thought to speak the most ~proper~ version of English, say “uncomfterble.”
And a quick Google search yields that even Chaucer used “axe” to mean “ask” within his writing. (Source) (Source)
tl;dr actually caring about whether someone says “ask” ~”correctly”~~ is rooted in racist &amp; classist biases of language so, consider, not. 

Most linguistic pedantry is inherently racist in nature.

Frankly no one should be surprised at the rampant and unrepentant ableism in the medical professional community—the medical profession has LONG been an important tool of the privileged to maintain power. Science has LONG been used to “prove” that the oppressed are naturally lesser than the oppressors. Racism, ableism, sexism, homophobia, and cissexism in society are currently and always have been given support by science and medicine.

This is why I don’t trust any “scientific” articles nor often go to them for sources of thing involving issues of the oppressed. Not that oppressors care. If its not from another oppressor they won’t believe it.

Anonymous said: ngl im like 98% sure that christmas was actually originally a pagan holiday but it was taken over and the meaning was COMPLETELY altered. the same goes for easter. i think theyre both originally about like seasonal equinoxes?? i mean jesus was born in the summer and all, and it really was just created to oppress pagans

therainbowgorilla:

Oh definitely, Christmas and Easter were totally pagan holidays, or at least had much of their holiday customs appropriated to form “christian” holidays

As a pagan, I feel qualified to answer this-Christmas was Yule (which I celebrate instead of Christmas, yay for 12 days of smaller gifts instead of one day of a couple larger gifts) and Easter was Ostara, a celebration of the fertility goddess.  Also, according to scholars, Jesus of Nazareth’s birthday would have actually been in the spring. It was changed to coincide with Yule to appeal to pagans.

I asked her what she felt most guilty about, and she said: “I can’t say it, because it will make me cry. And I don’t like people to see me cry.” I told her that was fine and changed the subject, but after a few minutes she typed it out on her phone, and handed it to me:

"When I was eleven years old, I got in a fight with my twin brother and told him that he was going to die before me because he had a brain tumor."

"Is he still alive?" I asked.
"Nope."

constantly having to deliberately downplay your mental illness but also constantly worrying that you’re making it up for attention, somehow

the number of people who relate to this troubles me and imo demonstrates exactly who suffers when you fearmonger about Fakers
