TSQ is a new interdisciplinary academic journal that will change the way the world thinks about transgender issues.
Okay Tumblr friends, this is important. A friend of mine is helping out with a Kickstarter campaign for an absolutely fabulous project that is all about creating one of the first (possibly THE first) academic journal on transgender studies. This is a big deal. Their first few planned issues are listed, and they’re exploring things like intersectionality, colonialism, trans* media, and more. Many of the staff on the project (including the founders) are trans* or genderqueer.
They’re trying to raise $20K, which is a totally doable Kickstarter goal. We have 30 days. Let’s help them make it happen. Go!
Ads play in every country now.
It’s mostly Blip not knowing what they’re doing as usual.
Not really commenting on Lewis video here,mostly because I understand his point of view and agree with it.(even though I don’t post much on Blip anymore,can’t call me a sellout there lad!)
I use adblock mainly to avoid banners everywhere and I put some sites on exclude coz I have no problem with ads when I watch people I like.(example Phelous.com or some other contributors Blip Channel)(not Linkara,he smells)
Usually during the ads I check the comment section or twitter and facebook.
And before you say I’m an hypocrit,I don’t make a living of video making.
I have a full time job and I post something up to 3 to 5 videos per week on my YouTube channel(wich has a way lower CPM) .I have no need for making money online,it’s a hobbie and a pleasure that I share.
It would make more sense for people that enjoy Lewis,Lupa or Spoony or whatever to understand that simple equation.
No ads = Contribs have to find a way to pay bills
Wich means getting a job with precise schedule.
= less time to make videos
add to that pile fatigue and you got lower production values.
I’m not saying shut up and stop being an entitled prick,but try to think longer than 30 seconds before complaining.
(so the ads are helpful coz everytime you see one you can actually think of useful things to do with your day instead of complaining without logic.)
Have a nice day,and right now,I’m behind you.
Why Flash is awesome.
You make it sound like I DON’T want to hug him.
….15 is odd- nevermind.
2. Favorite normal, probably Zangoose on principle.
4. Favorite grass, probably Breloom? I never really thought about it, since honestly no Grass-type cracks my Top 10.
6. Favorite water, Swampert. The first water starter I wanted to choose.
8. Favorite rock…Kabutops is pretty neat. Again, though, never put much thought into it.
10. Favorite poison….can Gengar count? No? Well, I’m a Crobat fan to be honest.
12. Favorite ground, putting down Flygon.
14. Favorite fighting, well, can Heracross count? ….no? Hitmonlee, I guess, for sheer creepy factor.
Five new mofs for sale!
I thought batch processing dolls the same colour would make my life easier but it just seems I get too carried away with possibilities! So many colours and patterns to choose from… How can I limit myself.
Mofs have resin heads, hands and feet and are hand painted, hand sewn and hand… made! They are squashy and cute and definitely limited edition. You can see them and some of their brethren in my Etsy shop
I’m trying to get my mother out of the house. My father is abusive and I don’t know how much either of us can take it. Last night was the final straw and all I want now is a safe place for me and my mom.
If you can’t donate, I understand. If you can, I will owe you a great debt. All I ask is that you spread the word so I can protect my mother the best way I can. We need to get out.
So, I was asked to make a Transgender 101 presentation/PDF for Three3littlebirds, would help her class. I ended up making this presentation, and I thought I’d show you fine folks what the end result turned out to be.
Mineral Dragons by Pythosblaze
These are awesome and my love for dragons is pretty big, as it is for Mineralogy! ^_^ Hope you guys don’t mind this
First of all, there is the Marty/Gary Stu concept, which is the male version of a Mary Sue. So it’s not like all badly-written male characters are ignored.
Second, feeding into Mary Sues encourages bad writing. Offering helpful critique isn’t tearing someone’s dreams apart, they need to know what to improve on. That’s how we got Bella Swan, a blatant Mary Sue in a published work. Authors need to learn how to make their characters well-rounded and realistic, not self-inserts that everyone bends over backwards for, can never do any wrong, and are overpowered to the billionth degree.
And really? Power fantasy? If they’re posting their work online they’re susceptible to criticism, 12 year old girls included. Once again, constructive criticism is good, otherwise they’ll never grow as writers.
Finally, lay off of Batman. He’s a very realistic character and the audience cam sympathize with him. He’s not infallible, he’s grown as a character, etc.
This just drove me crazy!
Snow: They also seem to ignore the fact that Mary Sues are more often than not self inserts for the purpose of wish fulfillment, and have few personal flaws other than being clumsy, or other minor things that other characters find endearing. Also most superheroes have people that consider them Sue-ish. It’s more accurate to analyze the Sue tendencies in the context of the story, their relationship to other characters, and what other people are capable of doing. For example, anyone remember [Mona Lisa Auditore]? Or her sassy counter-Sue [Rosita de Pazzi]? Text book Mary Sues!
There’s not much wrong with writing your own Sue/Stu adventures, but if you want them to be GREAT, you gotta tone it the fuck down and make them more believably flawed in ways.
I might debate the Batman part - especially in the hands of writers like Frank Miller (namely his later works). Batman’s just as capable of sue-dom in the hands of a bad writer.
Which is really what a sue boils down to: bad execution. And that’s why we hate them. The fact that most of them are female just reflects that (this is based on personal observations) more female writers are present and more likely to make a female character, and more inserted female characters means higher chance of a mary sue being female. Though if anyone wants, I can provide some male stus.
“That was fun! Thanks for entertaining me!”
