Bath time for kitties! When we took them in, we had to get some ticks and fleas off of them. Tonight we gave them a warm Dawn dishsoap bath to get rid of any other nasties. They were very good about it and purred thunderously as I toweled them off. Their reward for their patience was tasty kitten milk and wet food.
I wish you haven't misunderstood what happened…… These translators didn't sell your work for any interests they don't deserve, they translated your amazing slash just for love and enthusiasm！ it's about another writer. She used many unique setting and details of your slash to write her own HP slash and earn money with it which is inappropriate at all. Without these settings, her slash wouldn't make sense any more, it's not complete plagiarism， but it is also disgusting.
Oh! I see now! *phew* Thank goodness. I’d hate to think that anyone who’d asked had done bad things. And it’s a shame about this other writer. I’ve seen my ideas taken and used before in other fanfics, but never for someone else’s profit. Ah well. If she stole my ideas, she probably stole ideas from other people, too. But worst of all, she probably doesn’t have many of her own ideas at all.
MY SCIENCE TEACHER CAUGHT THE TABLE ON FIRE AND HES JUST STARING AT IT
I LOVE SCIENCE TEACHERS
I’M SORRY BUT HOW BADLY DID HE FUCK UP READING HIS CALIPER?
All my sympathies to these teachers. All my cracked up and unsympathetic laughter too.
Thanks to a generation of massive amounts of standardized testing, our students conceive education primarily as a tool for determining a ranking. The Obama administration’s policy is even called Race to the Top. We have the most read columnist in the country telling us how important it is to raise “standards” so our students don’t fall behind.
For our students’ entire lives we have communicated that the reason to learn things is not to fulfill curiosities, but to see where you stack up relative to others. Grades are no longer a proxy for learning, but a lap time determining how well they’re doing at achieving a secure financial future. Under this system, a “B” is genuine cause for distress. A “C” is a disaster that points towards a ruined life.
At the same time, we have made it increasingly difficult to pay for a genuine education. The burden of loans threatens to strangle adult lives before they really begin. It is now impossible to work your way through college. Concerns over even paying for college are also at an all-time high. We communicate that a college degree is more important than ever and then make it more difficult to achieve.
Students look at the larger culture and see not a ladder of opportunity, but a treadmill of obligation. No wonder they’re distressed.
Super edgy pastel graphics telling you how not to be an asshole!
"Dont bully cis people its mean >:("
Cis People: *murder trans people and deny them their rights*
we were so close to having cute edgy art but instead you’ve soiled it with claims of cisphobia
You want rights by attempting to demonize and make fun of cis people? Man no wonder they kind of don’t want to listen to you!
It doesn’t matter if you think cisphobia actually harms people or not. Making fun of people for any kind of cause won’t make any people reflect on their actions in any case. It rather blocks both parties from wanting any kind of serious consideration.
Making fun of gay/trans/non-binary people is not funny and neither is making fun of cis/straight people. Treat people how you want to be treated and you will earn respect, because respect is to be earned, not given.
And well? Venting is totally ok, venting is healthy, everyone has struggles to vent about. Making fun of people is NOT venting. And trying to excuse that is just plain asshatery.
And if you think alienating cis people doesn’t happend for any kind of magical reason. Scroll down here.
And how it doesn’t ‘really’ affect cis people? I’ve seen people send death threats to the point where the person had to delete their account because they couldn’t take it anymore.
I have friends who got depressed and suicidal because people kept telling them how much scum they were for being cis/privileged/male.
IF YOU THINK IT IS NOT BAD TO MAKE FUN OF THEM JUST BECAUSE ‘IT’S JUST FELINGS’ YOU ARE A PRETTY DISGUSTING PERSON. I’VE SEEN CIS PEOPLE GETTING SUICIDAL OVER THESE THINGS FOR GOD’S SAKE.
If you bully cis people, it may make them think they feel all the more justified for bullying, attacking or assaulting trans/non-binary people because all they see from trans/non-binary people is how they tell them how much scum and privileged. they are for being cis.
Sincerely, someone who isn’t cis, has been denied their identity, but wants people to stop being fucking assholes to each other based on sexuality/race/gender that people can not control.
Wendy’s is doing the same thing.
Will wonders never cease.
Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.
I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.
No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.
Um. I just read that ‘proof.’ How was that awful? Everything about it was polite and calm. It didn’t once say anything about throwing a fit. It was all ‘if you’re embarrassed about people asking questions, here’s a few things to say’ and then a list of very simple and put together answers. Nothing about it was pushy or demanding. It even says not to try to ask for specific ponies in the drive-through because they don’t have time for it there. Geez, some people can hear hate anywhere.
dear goblin, this may be rude, but l'd like to know that if you ever authoried anyone of you setting in Oath Breaker, cause one of the chinese writer named Qingmei totally use it for-profit, in amount of may over 10.000$, which is approximate by VIP readers'payment and private publishing. if not, it's serious. i'm looking forward to the truth. thanks,
Not rude at all. I gave permission to a couple of readers to translate it, but I certainly gave no permission to sell it. That really sucks of them.
So I pretty much wanted to say like a thousand things- a thousand things. Legit, a thousand things. But I thought about it and was able to sum it up as thus; Thanks. I cannot count the hours of joy I have had from reading your fanfiction. I just wanted to you to know that I am madly in love with your TMNT fanfiction and I would kidnap you if I thought I would get away with it. Anyway, thanks. For the thrills and the super goddamn scary stuff, I love all that I've read and thank you for that :)
Awww……thank you! *looks back at neglected fics I need to get done*
