if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
This post was good but then it got better
His tattoo translates to ‘faggot’. WHY
Because i am one.

sheriockhomes said: I know this is a difficult question for you but I don't know where else to go. As you probably know Eddplant uploaded a hardly-even-apologising video, deleting all negative comments. Hearing this happened I went on to Alex Day's channel to see that he had liked the video and I know these two youtubers are still kind of big and I'm really worried the video gets big and a larger audience is gained for ed because he does not seem sorry. Is there a way to report the video/should something be done?
You know, very briefly there was a weak-willed part of me that didn’t want to weigh in on this for the sake of me and Ed’s old friendship, but when I learned that he’s not just deleting comments, but comments from his own victim, that’s not a luxury I’m affording anymore.
Ed was about the second person from YouTube to be publicly implicated in sexual abuse, and the first to try to come back (bearing in mind that the first person is now serving a prison sentence). He won’t be the last unless the community as a whole makes it clear that this is not an okay thing to do.
First thing’s first: DON’T WATCH. Literally do not even consider going to his or any of their channels to fuel your morbid “gottaseethis” curiosity over the ~drama~. I haven’t watched the video, instead getting my info from everywhere and everyone else. Even if you want to leave a negative comment, don’t, fuck it, you’re adding to an algorithm and he’s deleting them anyway. A view is a view, and the ability to thrive on controversy is what causes shit like this to happen all the time. Do not be responsible for those numbers climbing.
Secondly: There are and will be other YouTubers misguidedly aiding in any attempts at a comeback. DON’T LET THEM. Remove your support for anyone who appears to be facilitating the return of a known abuser; be it through liking/sharing their videos, promoting them or even (heaven forbid) collabing with them. Unsub and unfollow that person, let them know why. Let them know they’re fuelling a poisonous environment that will spread to their own audiences, and you want no part of it. Zero tolerance.
Lastly: Do not buy into any “everyone deserves a second chance” crap. So many people spout this like it’s an instantly redeeming Hail Mary but it’s just not a thing. Yes, almost everyone deserves the opportunity to improve themselves and start over, if they are willing and understand their transgressions; but when you burn your house down, you don’t sit in the ashes and try to piece them back together. You find another house.
Ed and all the others need to find somewhere else to rebuild their lives, because they have no place trying to shoehorn themselves back into a space where all the people they affected are still around and have been attempting to put it behind them, only to have their assailant shoved back in their face and mind with a “welcome back” pat on the shoulder.
The bravery of these young women in coming forward with their stories will mean absolutely nothing, if we aren’t prepared to continue listening to them and consider their feelings the entire way. The policy I adopted during this whole process is “no forgiveness until the victims* are satisfied” and will be sticking to that.
Also, sidenote: YouTube comments can be deleted, but tweets and Tumblr tags can’t. You have your tools. Don’t let people forget.
*victim is a bit of a blanket term and many people aren’t comfortable with it, but for lack of a better term I’m trying to be concise.
The collision between the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy.
the grand showdown
Andromeda is a bit bigger than us. So when that happens, Andromeda’s black hole is gonna consume our black hole in a vicious act of galactic canabalism.
Which is an actual term used in astronomy apparently.
“Galactic Cannabalism” sounds like an electro/death metal fusion band.
Galactic cannibalism is one of my favourite astronomical terms, but it doesn’t beat the term used for the stretching out into a long thin tube that occurs when something falls into a black hole (spaghettification) or the term used for a rock thought to be a meteorite but which later turns out to be an ordinary terrestrial rock (meteowrong).
this is why i can’t talk to people who don’t think space is the shit
