Bad, Complex, and Dude: 1:42 PM Tweet Alexandra Erin Retweeted Audrey @Turbocrit Gamer dudes are wild they'll play a game about overthrowing a corrupt monarch but if there's 1 gay character in it then it's "too political" 8/25/17, 1:50 PM 4,764 Retweets 11.6K Likes Audrey Turbocrit 14h Replying to @Turbocrit Not to mention the whole "having a gay/trans character in a high fantasy setting is completely unrealistic. Also here's some dragons" thing 8 237 829 WC @Hexy27Bernie1 7h Tweet your reply definitelygayrpgideas: definitelygayrpgideas: thesallowbeldam: kirinandvlindertje: vaishino: atomic-darth: pupperoni-pizza: didntfitthenarrative: mitch-turn: Sweet generalization. It’s not about whether a character is trans or gay. Gay characters make sense. People have been gay for millennia. Trans however. Not the case. In a high fantasy setting, how in the balls are they going to perform surgery where they change the sex of the character??? It makes no sense at all. They’d have to explain it. And remember, this is high fantasy, Game of Thrones is also in that category. This is a time where they would reach into your body with an object strikingly similar to a salad tossing spoon to yank out a small piece of arrowhead. Pretty sure they hadn’t figured out a surgery as complex as a sex change… The people complaining that there aren’t enough gay/trans people in stuff like this are just as bad if not moreso than the people who complain about gay/trans people being in stuff like this. Create your own fantasy world filled with nothing but gay/trans people. Make it so that being heterosexual is the minority. All the power to you. Good luck trying to create it. You don’t have to have surgery to be transgender. Lots of transgender people don’t. Transgender people, people who identify with the gender not corresponding with their birth sex, have existed before the surgery. And the existence of and recognition of a third sex or dual sex existed in pre-modern times in lots of places are the world.So, for one, your “how in the balls are they going to perform surgery“ question doesn’t actually matter. They don’t need to in order for transgender people to exist.But if they did want to include transgender people who undergo physical changes to reflect their gender/sexual identity, in a HIGH FANTASY world, there’s actually a really easy answer to that: *ahem* “How are you going to make someone trans in a fantasy setting full of magic spells, potions, and artifacts?” shout out to the elixir of sex shift for covering more than just a gender binary. also lets not forget that in ye old days (aka time of the ancient greeks (aka the bc years)) that people drank the urine of pregnant mares to feminize themselves. like, trans people find a way ;) …the fucking Sumerians had trans people, brosky. Sumerians. They didn’t even have fucking iron, but they had trans women. dude lemme find you a fucking. girdle of sex change from 1st edition woah what’s that?? the first edition efreet cover??? OH HEY ITS A FUCKING GIRDLE OF SEX CHANGE AND THERES ALSO A POSSIBILITY IT REMOVES ALL SEX CHARACTERISTICS FROM THE WEARER it’s on page 145 of the dmg 1st ed. want an easier-to-read screenshot of a pdf?? tldr fuck you it’s pride month welcome back to “tldr fuck you” anyways dnd says trans nb rights

Bad, Clothes, and God: bex @ressurectionist 11m i dont care that much usually bc i know it's only a joke but the mikey we're seeing is finally truly happy after years of addiction stemming from severe mental illness and i'd find jokes like 'what happened to him' funnier if we acknowledged that it's a good thing he's happy now bex @ressurectionist 8m 'cos for all the 'what happened to twink mikey he became a het' etc type jokes we hardly ever see actual recognition for the shit he went through to become someone he actually likes and that puts a bad taste in my mouth bex @ressurectionist 6m bc no one seems to care that he's happy they just want him to go back to the anxious depressed wreck of revenge mikey because they like the aesthetic more?? nah mate i dont love his new style either but god at least he's not dying anymore holy shit bex @ressurectionist tldr i just think those jokes would be much funnier and in a lot better taste if we recognised that it's overall a good thing that he's changed from his mcr self because he's clearly much more mentally stable and much happier with himself now even if u dont like how he dresses 9:16 AM - 18 lan 2019 cellabrated: cellabrated: cellabrated: i’m not the best at articulating but i wrote some thoughts on twitter and couldn’t be bothered turning it into a tumblr text post so here u go ok to the people saying this goes for gerard: it doesn’t. put simply, people who say they prefer gerard back when he was suffering are (rightly) told off for it. that’s clearly not the case with mikey as that’s why i made this thread in the first place. not just that, but jokes about gerard’s current clothes/lifestyle are read as insults towards him, and people say they love bullets/revenge gerard’s aesthetic without comparing him to current gerard with a ‘what happened?’  like i say in the thread, it’s not the biggest deal, but not everything that applies to mikey has to apply to gerard as well oh i also feel i should say something i put in the tags of the original post - if you’ve made fun of current mikey for being a het or whatever i don’t mean that i think you want mikey to be miserable again, it’s just a post to say it’s overall a good thing mikey’s changed and that should be acknowledged a bit more!

Big Dick, Bitch, and Fire: TBT PFC Moses Cardenes | It was summer in Rawah Iraq, 2007 NSW and The Highlanders had teamed up to lay hate and discontent through their battle-space w- a small Marine DET next door who stayed getting fucked up at Blue Hackle compound on Camp Kassem. CallsignFatal Highlanders TrojanHorse HunterKiller TFHighlander A young, skinny PFC with BCGs on his face and fire in his heart named Moses Cardenas was a Scout on his first combat deployment. On Aug 2, 07, his platoon set up a snap VCP. (2) bongos eerily halted in the distance refusing to advance. Suddenly(5) muj fucks started laying HEAVY hate on the plt w- PKMs and RPGs immediately wounding Rodie trying to bound for cover. Unable to engage from his position, Cardenas slung his dick over his shoulder, clutched his SAW for dear-fucking-life, and sprinted into the danger zone. While pulling a marine that was easily TWICE his fucking bodyweight w-o gear and ammo, he took a round to the neck that instantly dropped him. Having not one bitchmade bone in his body, he got back up, chicken winged his SAW and laid hate on the trucks while simultaneously walking backwards and buddy dragging Rodie. He then got shot AGAIN and dropped to the ground. But Cardenas having no quit in his heart got back up and dragged Rodie to safety. As soon as he was clear of the LAVs line of fire, big dick Texan Drew Perry opened up on bongo trucks w- 25mm and turned those motherfuckers into scrambled eggs. Unfortunately the platoon lost Lcpl Christian Vasquez but be damned if he didn’t fight bravely that day. Moses Cardenas was given the Silver Star for his actions MOSES CARDENAS SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED A MEDAL OF HONOR FOR WHAT HE DID ON THIS DAY. But due to the officer elitist nature of the United States Marine Corps, Cardenas received no such recognition and had he been you can be sure some coffee-sipping, clean-cammie-having, paper-bitch of an officer would have done their best to hinder the process. Fortunately for the Marine Corps, he’s still leading Marines to this day and has somehow found sets of trousers that fit his massive fucking balls. All the respect in the world for this Marine, Highlander forever. OAF TBT OAFNation

Advice, Ass, and Bad: embyrr922 pyrrhiccomedy ifshehadwings ovaadosedonconfidenc Intuition is real. Vibes are real. Energy doesn't lie. Tune in This is actually called thin slicing. Your brain recognizes patterns from very small "slices" of information by comparing them to things you have experienced betore. This all happens very quickly ona subconscious level without our conscious mind being involved. So intuition is actually really fast pattern recognition, and it can be very accurate. So yeah, if you have a gut feeling that a person or situation is not good, get the hell out. Your brain knows what's up When I was young - because l've always been a big skeptical pain in the ass I thought that when people were talking about interpersonal "energy," they were on some Gay Ass Shit. Years later, after spending hundreds of hours reading studies about intuition and neuroscience and pattern recognition and the processing power of the subconscious mind, I realized that that kind of talk - "she has such good energy," "you need to read the energy of the room," "l just got some really bad energy off of that guy - is a convenient shorthand for the lightning-rast, weirdly-accurate, real-as-fuck subconscious processing of the probability of positive or negative social outcomes likely to result from hundreds or thousands of variables. That "energy" isn't a tangible thing floating around in the air. It's your brain updating you constantly with information about your situation. Listen to it. Especially if it's telling you to be nervous or scared. Your brain is very good at recognizing danger. Let the enormous processing power of your subconscious mind protect you. It's better at spotting patterns than you are "Bad energy" isn't some hippie shit. It's your brain setting off a claxon because it knows something's not right. Thin slicing is wonderfully helpful, but be aware that if it's doing its pattern recognition from bad sources, you need to actively override it. We're raised in a racist society, inundated with racist media, and bombarded with subtly (or unsubtly) racist advice. Thin slicing can save your life, but it's also the cause behind the unconscious elements of racism (and misogynylableism/antisemitism/islamophobia/etc.) that we all suffer from Trust your instincts, but if your instincts tell you something that seems prejudicial, double check their work Trust your gut. Unless your gut is a dumbass.

Bitch, Crazy, and Fail: 6-phds-and-no-sense sometimes people try to tell me that scientists are paragons of rationality and l have to break it to them that I have yet to work in a lab that didn't have at least one weird secret shrine in it 6-phds-and-no-sense new guy: why is all of the equipment in this room covered in toys? me: dONn't touch those new guy me: they need the toys to function. if they don't all have toys they get jealous new guy: new guy me: when something breaks just take the wizard and wave it around for a while they seem to like that inkling139 We don't have shrines per say in our lab but there are plenty of superstitions For instance, if a Prince song plays once on the radio that day your experiment will probably work. If two Prince songs play you should just throw in the towel because none times out of ten your shit is going to fail. No one knows what happens with three Prince songs, the theory is it might reset everything to neutral but it has vet to be tested Train people to look for problematic variables in delicate tasks with numerous potentials for failure and our pattern recognition goes crazy trying to find some common denominator. It doesn't always settle on the most logical explanation We know it's not true but then there's that Sherlock Holmes phrase rattling around in your subconscious. Eliminate the impossible and whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth Source:6-phds-and-no-sense #science is a bitch sometimes #and scientists have their own special type of superstitions #lab life 1,855 notes The mad scientist trope had to come from somewhere
