They turn everything into a giant mess of “look at these white people” rather than actually focusing on helping minorities. The article was written by a conservative who falsely claimed that anti-racism activists are outraged by charcoal masks. The author wrote that lie to paint anti-racism activists as people who turn everything into a giant mess of “look at these white people” rather than actually focusing on helping minorities. Probably happened as a result of the aforementioned white racist liberals normalizing headlines like this being written completely sincerely and people actually getting outraged publicly to the point where people have their lives ruined over lies and exaggerations.  Poe’s Law is out of control.

It's to the point where I'm pushing away a formerly close friend and mentor who had been extremely kind to me The worst thing is that through all this, my mom (and probably nearly everyone else) is going to say it's all my fault for not being "strong" or independent" enough. For example a few weeks ago I was stupid enough to tell my mom how I hated how her relatives coerced me so hard into staying in my major, even when my heart and brain were both begging to be allowed to run, when they probably couldn't even tell me what my degree was in, and this made me too scared to leave since l feared a trickle down punishment from her. She told me l "stayed in there for myself" and it was all on me since "it's not [herl style" to directly confront others (although I have witnessed this several times). I have to keep pretending everything is alright though it is getting harder every day. There's nobody I can talk to about this: after all, who would believe me? Anon has a bad childhood

Advice, Anaconda, and Asian: STEAMPUNK &other genres thewritingcaf <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://nimblesnotebook.tumblr.com/post/61794170451">nimblesnotebook</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>Guide to Writing Steampunk</em></p> <p><strong>BASICS</strong></p> <blockquote> <p><strong>Punk Genres:</strong><span> </span><em>most common genres are in italics</em></p> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li> <em><strong>Atomicpunk</strong></em><span>: Optimistic retro science fiction based on the Space Age. Think <em>The Jetsons</em>.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Biopunk</strong></em><span>: </span><span>This genre is about altering genetics and DNA. These stories often take place in the near-future in which humans have been altered or in which human experimentation is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Candlepunk</strong><span>: Similar to clockpunk, but darker and with less technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Clockpunk</strong><span>: </span><span>Think Da Vinci’s inventions, but more advanced while. This genre follows the aesthetics and technology of Western civilization during the mid to late middle ages, though sometimes it’s set in the Victorian era.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Cyberpunk</strong></em><span>: Has advanced technology and often focuses on artificial intelligence and the cyber world. The setting is often near-future rather than far-future. Blade Runner is an example.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Dieselpunk</strong><span>: Based on aesthetics and technology between World War I and World War II, sometimes up until the Cold War.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Decopunk</strong><span>: Ranges from the aesthetics of the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Decopunk aesthetic is heavily based on modernism. Less gritty than dieselpunk.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Elfpunk</strong><span>: Basically urban fantasy, but with common high or epic fantasy creatures put in an urban setting rather than vampires and werewolves.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Nanopunk</strong><span>: Similar to biopunk, but biotechnology is less available and nanotechnology is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Sandalpunk</strong><span>: Set in ancient worlds, such as Rome, but with advanced technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Splatterpunk</strong><span>: Extremely graphic and contains a lot of gore.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Steampunk</strong></em><span>: This genre gets its name from the heavy steam-powered technology involved. Aesthetics are based on the Victorian and industrial eras of the Western world, though other cultural elements may be used.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Western Steampunk</strong><span>: Similar to steampunk, but with Western (as in Wild West) aesthetics and settings.</span> </li> </ul><span>So why are there so many sub genres? For starters, they help agents and publishers get an idea of what they’re in for if you’re going through the traditional publishing route. While bookstores usually just put these genres within science fiction or fantasy, you can still market your book through sub genres to reach a specific group of people who are looking for these genres.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>However, there are a lot of sub genres, most of which many have not heard of. If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it, the best would be to put it under another name (with the exception of steampunk, cyberpunk, and biopunk). For example, if you have written a candlepunk story, you can propose it as fantasy, alternate historical fiction, or any other genre it may fit in. While atomicpunk is quite common, it’s not well known by that name. If you have written an atompunk story, the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction? The technology is a big difference. It’s usually more advanced for the time it’s modeled after.</span> </div> <div><span> </span></div> <div><strong><span>TECHNOLOGY</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div><span>The technology is one of the defining aspects of steampunk.

Anna, Brains, and Church: SKILL HARD WORK TO ACHIEVE A LEVEL OF SKILL IN ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO STAND ON A PILLAR OF HARD WORK. OH, I JUST STARTED HERE TALENT & I HARD WORK TALENTHARD WORK owLTURD.com violent-darts: charlesoberonn: jelloapocalypse: These bother me sometimes. We all start as literal useless babies. No one gets a magic ticket that makes them better at anything. If someone says they “never practice” it’s probably because they like doing the skill and see it as a fun use of their time instead of “practice”. I will qualify this a small but I think important amount, because what it is is actually complicated:  Some people’s brains and nervous systems are wired for better hand-eye coordination. Some people’s brains and nervous systems are wired for better pattern recognition. Or translations of audio input. Or whatever.  What this does is combine with @jelloapocalypse‘s EXTREMELY WELL-OBSERVED COMMENT (If someone says they “never practice” it’s probably because they like doing the skill and see it as a fun use of their time instead of “practice”.) in a way that can be both invisible and give this kind of person a massive leg up while being really discouraging to someone who doesn’t have that wiring.  It doesn’t get to the actual original comic’s level of “oh I just started here”. But let’s take two people called Riley and Kennedy, and we’ll do singing, since that’s what I teach.  Riley and Kennedy have exactly the same kind of background: parents who listen to the radio sometimes, the usual social stuff around popular music of whatever genre, etc, but no formal training. Neither of them sings in a church choir, neither of them falls into a formal disability category, whatever.  The first time Riley shows up in my studio and we sing a really simple song I use as a diagnostic, she gets it mostly right. She can follow the tune; she can hear pitch, and it takes very little work for her to chivvy her voice into matching that pitch as long as there’s not something pulling her off. (In other words: as long as I’m singing the same notes as her and playing them on the piano, and as long a she can hear both herself and those notes).  For Riley the lesson is really fun and validating and she goes home and sings along to her own music for a while and comes back next week with six songs she wants to try learning. And most of her lessons are like that: pretty easy positive feedback. That means Riley “practices” a lot in exactly the way @jelloapocalypse describes, even if she doesn’t think she’s actually practicing (that is, sitting down to sing the songs we’re working on together in a systematic way) at all.  In contrast, the first time Kennedy comes to my studio, she struggles. It’s harder for her to hear the difference between notes, and it’s much harder for her to make her voice actually match the pitch she wants to sing at. When we pull out the diagnostic tune, she mostly manages to drone a few clusters of semi-tones, and while she can hear that she’s Off, it’s actually very hard for her to tell HOW she’s off, or what she should do to correct it.  In most cases, for Kennedy, lessons - and in fact the overall experience of singing - is not fun. It’s not validating. It’s a whole process of Not Being Good, of Doing Things Wrong, and given the way humans are often in casual situations being laughed at. When Kennedy goes home she doesn’t sing along with any music she plays: she keeps her lips pressed together and at best enjoys other people singing (and maybe feels envious and demeaned because she can’t do it).  Now the thing is, the practical “skill” difference for Riley and Kennedy here at the beginning is minimal. But the Rileys will tend (if they like what they’re doing) to ROCKET UP THE SKILL LEVEL, because of the “practice is fun so it’s just the thing I do” - because there is always a bunch of validation and positive reinforcement in the act of doing whatever it is, be it doodling or singing or math.  The Kennedys won’t. In fact if they’re not lucky enough to have a good teacher, and one who can put a lot of this into perspective for them, they will tend to be inhibited. The worst time is when a Riley and a Kennedy are friends and sign up to learn together, and Riley takes off and Kennedy’s left sitting there feeling like she’s somehow Deeply Flawed.   And in fact the whole Doctrine of “It’s Just About How Hard You Work” will in and of itself become part of what inhibits them, because they will watch the Rileys - and even the Annas, Anna in this metaphor being the Totally Normal Student who never really exists - grasp things faster than they do, even if they ARE working hard. And this will HAPPEN. They will watch this reality happen in front of them … and then people say to them “oh, it’s all about how hard you work, dear.” And it’s like being gaslit. (Well, to be fair: it IS being gaslit, just without malice intended on the part of the people doing it.)  And that message is horribly horribly toxic: here Kennedy is, and she IS working hard, but she’s still not progressing as fast as Riley or Anna no matter what she does! But it’s All About Hard Work, right? So that must mean that no matter how hard she THINKS she’s working, she’s actually just lazy, or doesn’t want it enough. It’s clearly a moral flaw in her.  I actually have, personally, really good luck with teaching the Kennedys because I literally have this conversation with them when they come to my studio. I actually outright tell them: firstly, anyone who has working vocal chords can sing. Anyone who has working vocal chords and the ability to distinguish audio pitch can even sing on key in tune! But some people have an easy time learning this and some people have a hard time, and sometimes which it is has some relationship to, say, “early exposure to music” or whatever but sometimes it seems to be utterly fucking random - pure luck of the draw.  You CAN SING. The capability is there. And if you want to we will find out how to make it happen. It might not happen as fast as for some other person, it might take more work, it might take more care, but that’s okay: that’s not your fault, that doesn’t mean you’re NOT working hard, but it does mean that here at the beginning we do things like recalibrate victories, we make your progress about YOU, not about Riley or Anna.  But I’m also not going to gaslight you or make you feel like you’re either delusional or somehow especially So Terrible You Don’t Fit In The Rest Of The World: sure, I’ve got some Riley-types who walk in here, noodle around, and we go on to Art Songs. They exist.  So what? Tall people exist. People with broad shoulders exist. People with dark hair exist. Physical embodiment and neurology hand out luck of the genetic roulette with no interest in outcomes. If you’re born blonde, it’s always going to take more work for you to have brown hair than someone born with brown hair, but much like dyeing your hair to match what you want, we can train the muscles of your voice and the neural pathways for hearing to do what you want.  The differences between Rileys and Kennedys are very small. If Riley didn’t discover she liked singing and Kennedy worked at it for years then no, Riley would not “start out” as good as Kennedy is after those years. And you can be Riley and if you DON’T do the fucking work, the Annas of the world especially will blast past you and leave you in the dust.  But on the other hand the Rileys get this wonderful cycle of positive reinforcement that does often start from a place of their coincidental physical embodiment giving them a slight leg up. And pretending that’s not the case does a big disservice to the Kennedys.  We just absolutely do need to reframe that for what it is (a tiny fundamental difference and then a HELL OF A LOT OF “this is fun so I practice more so I get more validation so I -” and more or less no moral meaning at all), what it doesn’t mean, and how to compensate for it.

Best Friend, Cats, and Children: App Store oo ?4:27 PM Tweet Sasha @sashacave My friend's stepmom gave his therapy cat away. Retweet if you want to bring him back home Maybe she'll reconsider #bringhomebeebles 7/5/17, 4:27 PM l VIEW TWEET ACTIVITY Tweet your reply Home Explore Notifications Messages Me vitariesocks: tittydemon: BRING OUR BOY HOME!! #bringhomebeebles Hi guys! I’m ‘the friend’, haha! My name is Joey, and my abusive stepmom stole our cat. Here’s a petition where you can sign to help me get him back! Please please please take a moment to sign. My little brother and I miss Beebles so much. He’s such a good boy, and our best friend. Let me explain a little bit about my situation. My family was going out of the country, and so, as always, we got someone to look after our cats. However, my stepmom decided to give Chip (or Beebles!) away to a friend to stay with instead because he has a bit of an anxiety problem. My stepmom is an emotionally abusive, manipulative person who has threatened me physical harm a few times. Of course, she did not tell any of us that our cat would be staying elsewhere, and Beebles is my little brother’s cat (not hers!). The only way I heard about Beebles being sent away was from overhearing a conversation. And in a few days, she sent him away while we weren’t home. After I asked her about it, she began threatening me with things like, “maybe he won’t come home” every once in awhile. I was really worried about Beebles being separated from the other cats in the house. He and his sister are very close, and separation anxiety between siblings can be dangerous for cats. Then my family went out of the country for two weeks. By the end of the trip, my little brother asked when his cat was going to be coming home. My stepmom dropped the bomb that she had already decided herself that he wasn’t coming home. My little brother and I cried about it, but vowed to actually talk to her later. However, politely asking her about it a few days later resulted in my brother and I both having panic attacks on the back porch, and afraid to sleep or go in our house. She accused us of not loving him, and not taking care of him, and tried to gaslight us into believing that we were horrible people who did not love our cat and THAT’S why she stole him. Which isn’t true in the least. My cats are my absolute life. I love them more than I can possibly express, and that accusation really hit me the hardest. I love Beebles so much. It was so horrible to hear her say such lies. She also made the situation all about herself, and how she was ‘the only one who took care of him’, even though I’m the one who cares for the cats when I’m at my dad’s house. Upon me telling her no matter what she thought, it was wrong for her to get rid of Beebles without telling us because we never got to say goodbye, she admitted to hating Beebles because of his anxiety disorder. She also tried to turn our own bio dad, who loves Beebles and also wants him back– against us. His children. She made herself the victim and tried to pretend that we were all ‘turning against and torturing her’. She physically won’t let Beebles back into the house now, even though all of HER pets have remained at home. She screams at us and causes panic attacks when we ask about him. Even my dad knows that what she’s doing is incredibly wrong and wants Beebles back. Beebles is such a good cat, and I love and miss him so much. Not to mention he was adopted as a way to recover from our parents’ messy divorce. My stepmom does not see that what she did was wrong at all, and that really hurts.In any case, please please please please please take a moment to sign our petition. It will help show my dad that other people care about me getting Beebles back, and motivate him to be the authority figure against my stepmom and get Beebles back to our house. It will also show my stepmom that, no matter what she thinks, what she did was unjust, as shown by the voices of you all. My brother and I miss Beebles so much.
