Giles: “Willow…What are you looking at?”
- Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season 2, Episode 5: Reptile Boy.
no matter how surrounded by family and friends the cancer is, they never lose the sense they were abandoned on this earth, alone and isolated. and its this sense of abandonment that urges them to create a sanctuary of their own and a place of belonging that nurtures their inner child. they want to be back in the arms of their parent (god) although this manifests through seeming inorganic ways
How is this so incredibly deep & accurate? You are amazing ::bows::
Thank you!! :)
Silly anon. Lesbian shit only ever improves things. Everything goes better with lesbians! What ruins real OUAT kisses? Real OUAT kisses.
That lesbian shit is 10000x better than the real OUAT kisses.
It keeps getting better… Damn, SWEN… Bring it.
OMG PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING I WANNA SEE THIS ON MY DASH AGAIN AND AGAIN.
You were saying?
I’m pretty sure this is one of the best SWEN posts of all time. Thank you self-absorbed immature anon for catalyzing this! You have been an asset to SWEN!
So the other day I was absent minded lot filling out forms at the doctor’s and actually accidentally almost wrote down “women” as a form of birth control. Before I was like…Wait…control yourself that’s probably not what they’re looking for here…
Getting kinnd of tired of this cissexist concept. Women dating women can still get pregnant, helloooo, trans women exist.
I’m sorry! And I hope I didn’t trigger you or anyone else. Your point is extraordinarily valid and important.
Posted that without thinking it through enough of the way, obviously chose the wrong words amidst my attempts to find that right one/s, and spaced that i tagged it in a very public feed while thinking of the tags only in the context of commentary, it should have been instead tagged ‘personal’.
I am gender fluid/queer (ill be the first to admit I am newly out of denial/repression on this & not educated), & extraordinarily pansexual in practice. And I do empathize with your sentiments about this.
This post was about, and ONLY about, my own individual and highly subjective sexcapades atm, as well as my personal exasperations with dealing with bi-gendered status quo doctors forms/doctors that don’t even inquire about your sexuality in the sexual health section, and assume outright that you are cis/heterosexual in their questioning about health issues that such info is actually extremely relevant to.
The ” ” around ‘women’ was unsuccessful sarcastic shorthand, not syntax. I trailed through a list of words when I wrote that and settled on “women” bc i was referencing female bodied/female bodied sexy times (since that’s largely what my blog is about even though that was definitely not the only thing i was thinking about at the time) and everything else seemed problematic or to not fit atm, — But i obviously chose the wrong word to attempt to communicate my sentiments.
I try to be very conscious of gender neutral / consciously inclusive wording and clarifications in even the smallest things, but spaced on the larger context of this one. I was thinking at the moment about a conversation I had just had with my gay friend about the difference specifically of experiences with bisexual/fluid folks vs gay/lesbian folks when it comes to dating and/or bedding them, the differences of experience/perspective of bi guys and bi girls, and the difference between being with a certain gender/what kind of different factors come into prime focus…It’s also significant we were talking about all this in the context of the general significance of queer sex magick. That’s the context that has been flavoring my gender semantics the past couple of weeks.
I have the privilege of a shapeshifting temperament and orientation and interpersonal hot button semantics are NOT a strong suit, especially on the internet (im one of those ppl that makes up words, tones, exaggerations, and facial expressions to emphasize subtext and deeper meanings/issues when speaking bc i talk fast & err towards reverence through irreverence— but that so does NOT communicate well with a couple “”s online. Still learning and trying to rein myself in.
What did was post without thinking, and in a haze of the assumptions that swirl around my own experience/mode of operating, so it manifested fucky, and i hope it didn’t affect to many people here, and my mistake is relevant to what I’m gonna mention real quick.
It’s very important to me to make a point on all posts with this flavor (to whatever degree they are) that I am extraordinarily opposed to the fear-fueled, toxic call-out-culture that’s evolved on tumblr (and off of it) & the habits we tend to pick up in the environment of this site, & reactionary micro-aggressions, that feed that culture. A lot of different people come here with a lot of strong emotions, but I don’t believe any of that kind of practice serves anybody, and it can actually become very dangerous and destructive. Cultures crash together, that’s like issue of the century, and i think we need to make more of an effort in our interactions & perspectives to try to take a step back first and connect, evolve, co-create, & support each other instead of passing fear and pain on to our neighbors: who are not us and do not have our perspectives and experiences. Things can be brought up, talked about, & corrected without warrior-mode. The feelings are 1000% justified, but they dont work as affective fuel if they aren’t refined/sublimated a little first.
With that out there, I would love to discuss all this stuff further with you if you like, (or with anyone else that might read this - or have issues/thoughts about anything i say/do/post in the past or future for that matter). I’m striving to become a vehicle for solutions to these problems via media, not perpetuate them, and I obviously don’t have experience with everything, the more connecty inside schooling/exchange the better.
Feel free to get in touch with me privately or publicly about anything. Sorry again for my irresponsible words.
Die tumblr mobile, DIE!!!
Friendly reminder not to let your own stress & anxiety control the way you react & speak to your kids.
“I suppose just don’t give up. I never gave up I just kept going and going and going. I always wanted to be an actress since I was a very little girl. I was in a school play when I was 11 and I decided this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life…. It just took some time to get going.”- Taylor Schilling (on advice she’d give her younger self)
