Wow I sure am babbling a lot tonight
Wow I sure am babbling a lot tonight
I have an IRL friend who is nonbinary, and prefers They/Them/Their pronouns, and I’ve been trying to keep that in mind and use the correct terms and be respectful and stuff
And (ignoring that lovely incident with my sister) I’ve noticed something really cool
People around me are trying to do it, too, because they hear me doing it.
Like, my husband and I will correct the other if one of us slips up and uses the wrong pronoun.
My Mom, who is the worst grammar nazi ever, is trying to teach herself to use ‘they” as singular, and when she fails to do so, she corrects herself to say the person’s name instead of risking using the wrong pronoun. She’s even checked with me to be sure she can say stuff like “Hey guys” to a group of my friends if that person is included (and I told her yes, that’s fine.)
My brother pretty much always uses ‘they’ in relation to this person, and if he slips up he immediately corrects himself.
I was talking to a different friend earlier today and mentioned about enby pal’s recent surgery and they messed up the pronouns and automatically I was like “no, it’s ‘they’ ” and the friend was like “Oh my gosh, sorry! I got mixed up because we were talking about (sex-specific characteristic)” and proceeded to use the correct pronoun through the rest of the conversation.
It’s amazing how one person trying to be respectful can spread into everyone around them. it’s nice.
I love Girls with Slingshots so much
Never before in my life have I seen such a happy, positively-portrayed relationship between a bisexual girl and an asexual girl, just… having a relationship like anyone else. And these little awkward moments and how they deal with them are so endearing.
And this is only one of the many, many relationships explored in GWS. You’ve got a straight girl who has her share of guy troubles, you’ve got flamboyantly gay drag queen Darren who has a new conquest every other day, you’ve got a lesbian couple, and you’ve got Jamie and Erin here who simply define their relationship as “in love”
I just love it
Also it’s full of potty humor and dick jokes and it’s just beautiful. I love it so hard.
I am so so so tired but also I don’t wanna sleep yet
What the heckies
LOOK AT THOSE BONE TIDDIES
Watching Les Miserables for the thousandth time
It’s the scene where Marius visits the place he and his friends used to meet, near the end of the movie, and he gives that really powerful, emotional performance
And I both love and hate this scene
I love it, because it’s so well done, and the actor is really good at emoting, and it’s so believable and the pain is so real and I mean like he has tears in his eyes and he’s trembling and red-faced and his brow is so furrowed at some points the skin there is like bloodless in colour and just
Just wow this guy can really sing and really act, it’s amazing
But I hate this scene
I hate this scene because it’s so believable and the pain is so REAL and AUGH.
Also the actor is great but he totally has fish lips.
In fact I don’t know the actor’s name, so I just call him Fishlips.
This just showed up on my feed and now I am reblogging it because of reasons. You can’t tell me how to live my life.
this is… this is fine
I am surprisingly okay with this, and possibly I am old because what I really want is one of those pastries in the third photo.
It would be totally cool if that nice young man brought it to me, but god help him if he shows up without the pastries.
"According to the FBI, there have been 129 confirmed white Christian terrorists in the last 20 years. That includes Timothy McVae, the uni-bomber, the Atlanta Olympics bomber and dozens of family planning centers and abortion clinics. Muslims? 19. Which would make white people the most likely demographic to commit a terrorist attack. So watch your mouth before you call me a terrorist or I’ll knock your fucking teeth out.”
My apartment is filled with the smells of baking chocolate chip muffins and banana bread
Life is good
