hey everyone I am absolutely terrified of this episode now

As asexual awareness week approaches I’m going to hunt down some good educational posts to queue up, but in the meantime wanted to throw together one of my own for things I’d love more awareness on.  Feel free to reblog!

Asexuality is commonly described as “lack of sexual attraction,” but can be used by anyone who feels the label suits them. Asexuality and aromanticism are two different things–asexual people may or may not also be aromantic (and vice versa!) There is a large variety of asexual people in how they relate attraction and sex. From “can’t even handle thinking about it” to “thinks about it only in fictional/hypothetical contexts” to “apathetic” to “sexually active” and everything in between–there is no one pure or right way to be asexual. Fiction is a great area to explore all of the above, and trying to lock down only a few acceptable ways to write about asexuality is actively harmful. Ace-spectrum people, including gray-asexual or demisexual people, have just as much right to call themselves asexual without needing to qualify it even though they may occasionally experience attraction. Sex-repulsion overlaps with asexuality a lot, both in experiences and in issues related to it.  Not all sex-repulsed people are asexual, and not all asexual people are sex-repulsed.  Sex-repulsion =/= purity culture.  Being sex-repulsed is not a moral judgment on non-ace people or ace people who enjoy sex.  Asexual and/or sex-repulsed people don’t need to try sex to “prove” they don’t like it.   Virginity is an outdated concept and is not something to mock someone over, or something you have to get rid of in order to be “mature.”  This includes for non-ace people!  Using “virgin” as an insult to demean someone doesn’t stop being harmful even when targeted at non-ace people! And most of all ACE-SPECTRUM PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL AND I LOVE YOU ALL, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF!

Communication and education about asexuality has broken down a lot over the past few years, making it difficult for even asexual people to learn about ourselves and each other.  Even if you’re exhausted by the toxicity that surrounds most discussions, I encourage you to take the time to keep learning and supporting each other!

Shit this got me out here cryin in the club

TERFS do not interact

[Caption: A screenshot of a post from the reddit forum r/MtF. The post is titled ‘To all you ladies, from a cis man’ and reads as follows:

I have full permission from my partner to post this and she's read it all. There is a misconception that the only men a straight trans women can get with, is a chaser. It is very sad that many of you feel that way, and I'm sorry for how men treat you, but that's not how it has to be.

I met my girlfriend when I was 15. She was living as a boy then and was 13. I used to push her around when we played football at school. I thought she was one of the lads. Time goes on, I was never that close to her and we lost touch. Next thing is I meet her again on a fine art course. I didn't recognize her at all and with her name change and generic surname I never made the connection. I developed quite the crush, we would go on dates and I'd sort of play them off as just hanging out with a friend. I was so giddy around her and I was terrified to tell her I liked her.

One day we were going to the movies and I told myself 'today is the day I ask her to be my girlfriend, and try to kiss her'. We ended up skipping the movie to go on a walk in the local forest. I held her hand and she squeezed mine - my heart was beating so damn fast. We finally kissed and it was like fireworks, I told her I liked her but she cut me off. She told me to stop talking because she needs to tell me something. Now in my mind I'm panicking thinking she's in a relationship, but she says 'I used to be a boy, I was at school with you, please don't be mad I'm so sorry I didn't tell you' and then to my absolute horror she said 'please don't hurt me'

She genuinely thought that there was a danger of me attacking her after finding out. This broke my fucking heart. I had my moment of being like wtf - mainly because I'd known this girl for almost 10 years and hadn't pieced the 2 people together - but then we kissed again, and then again and again and we kissed so much my face hurt by the end.

That was 5 years ago and boy this has been a learning curve. I've only ever dated cis women before, I am 100% straight and I had to unlearn some internalized shit for maybe a day or so, until I thought what the fuck does it matter who she used to be? Damn I used to be a baby, people change. But I love her the way she is now, I love her smile I love her eyes I love her body her curves her hands her hair and you know what? I love her penis too. I love it because its hers, and it gives her pleasure, and there isn't anything wrong with it. I don't have a fetish, I just fell in love with a woman and that means I fell in love with the whole package.

I'm planning to propose to her on new years eve. I want to spend the rest of my life with her, I want to raise kids with her and I want her to lose all of these insecurities. Just because you cant carry them, doesn't mean you wont be the mother of my children. There is hope, you're not broken or unlovable or nothing but a kink.

You're a powerful woman.

“Vicious” Leopard seal tries to keep national geographic photographer alive by feeding him penguins.

I was thinking about why Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond is so hated.

The obvious answer is because of the horrible things she did.

image

But the other diamonds did horrible things too…worse things even.

Pink abandoned Spinel, which is wrong, but Spinel was planning to kill every living thing on Earth to spite the son of a person who was no longer even alive. Yet, no one talks about what a monster Spinel is.

So many Steven Universe characters have hurt people, but we forgive them and are happy to see them redeemed.

So why not Rose?

Then, it hit me: because Rose’s redemption arc is told to us in reverse.

The first time we see Rose is toward the end of her life when she is pregnant with Steven. We see her appreciation for life and how full of love she is for Greg and her future child. She’s willingly sacrificing herself to bring a new life into the world.

image

But then, we start learning who Rose used to be, all her mistakes, all the people she hurt.

The loving mother in Steven’s video becomes a distant memory.

For those of you who hate Rose, imagine her backstory unfolded a little differently for us.

We’re introduced to Pink Diamond: she’s spoiled, bratty, immature, irresponsible, and inconsiderate.

She throws temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her way.

image

Not exactly an endearing character, right?

But one day, her tantrum injure Pink Pearl, her best friend. From that day on, she keeps everything to herself. Now we see her dealing with a consequence of her bad behavior.

Then we see how she’s abused by the other diamonds. We start to sympathize with her.

image

We see her try to save Earth. We see her trying to do the right thing for once.

But it backfires horribly.

image

She spends the rest of her life trying to fix it, but she can’t.

She meets Greg. Here is where Rose has the most emotional growth as a character. She learns what is truly means to be a “real person.”

Finally, she grows such an appreciation for human life, that she decides to sacrifice her form to bring her son into the world.

image

The reason Rose is so much more controversial than other characters who have done problematic things is because her story is told in reverse, her redemption comes across as a fall from grace.

But there are plenty of characters who have a fall from grace who are still not as controversial as Rose. The reason why many people are less sympathetic to Rose is because we never see how Rose reacts to her mistakes. We never get much insight into how Rose feels about herself and the things she’s done. We get small hints:

imageimage

For everyone who hates Rose, I get why. But I think we need to remember who she became instead of who she was.

Steven has PTSD please stop ignoring it

(Please take some time to read this, it’s important to me. There isn’t much writing it’s mostly screenshots)

I have seen barely any posts about Steven’s mental health. You’re all racking up his anger to ‘being a teenager’ but that’s so clearly not the case. Here is a couple of screen shots and quotes for evidence:

image

“You’ve always been a fusion, you’ve always had your friends! You are NOTHING without them” in the full clip of this, you can just see face drop when she says that. So many times he’s been almost killed and had a gem yell at him in his face about him being worthless, this is probably a trigger for him hence why he started crying and—

image

— turns pink. Also him snapping and turning violent, he never wants to feel helpless like he always has to when a gem tries to kill him. He’s been through it so much. And even after HE apologises when he didn’t need to. PTSD triggers like this that send you into a rage makes you feel like a awful, awful person afterwards.

image

“This was all Pink Diamond!” “My mom?..” he’s put back and disturbed by even the mention of his mom, I think it’s trigger for him. And right after—

image

— He apologise and vaguely explains why he turned pink, he looks so uncomfortable and scared at the mention of her and while explaining his reaction

image

“It doesn’t matter! I’m gonna fix it” he literally starts shaking, blocking his ears and holding his head.

image

“Stop it! I can’t deal with one more horrible thing that she did!” He snaps at a trigger, and starts getting incredibly angry and emotional

image

“I don’t wanna hear about it! I don’t even wanna THINK about it!” Just his voice when he says this, he sounds so scared. And his delusional yelling and movements just scream how much he’s put off by his mum. (HELP him)

There’s probably gonna be so much more in the future. But please stop just calling this ‘hormones’, this isn’t how hormones work. This poor kid has a mental illness. And even in the last 5 seasons there’s so much more for him to be absolutely traumatised for.

Thank so so much if you read through this! I’d love to hear your guys opinions and thoughts too!

This is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever drawn but I love it so much

it is pretty annoying how the fandom erases shaggys flaws to make him into a uwu precious scoobie snack babie…like hes a coward that when push comes to shove isnt there to help out his friends lmao

alright, lemme school your dumbass because obviously you’ve never watched scooby doo before

shaggy rogers is a hero

yes, he canonically has anxiety issues, but when it comes down to it, he is there for his friends no matter how scared he is. he cares very deeply for his friends and he would absolutely not hesitate to put himself in danger to keep them safe

in ‘music of the vampire’ when the vampire threatens his friends, shaggy’s first response is to grab a bunch of wooden stakes to attack the vampire with

image

later in this same movie when he (albeit falsely) believes he’s fallen victim to the vampire curse, he runs away and gets as far away from his friends as possible so there would be no chance of him harming them or inflicting the curse on them as well

and in ‘camp scare’ when the fish monster they’re dealing with hurts scooby, shaggy’s first response was to shatter a two-by-four across its face. watch it go down here, skip to about 1:30

image

during the climax of ‘legend of the phantosaur’ after struggling with his anxiety for the whole movie, shaggy overcomes it for the sake of saving the lives of his friends and the villains who put them in danger in the first place

in ‘ghoul school’, without any help from fred, daphne, or velma, shaggy saves the lives of several monster kids, and in ‘reluctant werewolf’ when he’s cursed to become a werewolf, he wins back his humanity in just under two days, again without help from fred, daphne, or velma

hell, the whole plot of ‘goblin king’ was about shaggy and scooby travelling into the realm of monsters, the very things he’s afraid of mos, so he can save his friends from being turned into monsters themselves. and he does save them

and those are just the examples i could think of off the top of my head!

shaggy is as essential to the gang as everyone else is. he’s the one who repeatedly throws himself headfirst into the path of the monster of the week to lead it into fred’s traps, despite his anxiety issues, because he’s the only one fast enough not to get caught. fun fact! he’s won multiple awards in high school for gymnastics and athletics. he isn’t just all about fear and food. he’s a friendly, caring person who would do anything for his friends, and on top of all this?

he’s only seventeen. of course he’s scared, he’s just a kid.

tl;dr, shaggy rogers is more than his anxiety

canonically, shaggy and scoob have dealt with more real monsters than the entire gang.

the mystery gang tends to unmask humans. The exceptions (authentic monsters, zombies, witches, ghosts, etc) are in certain movies. some of which (Zombie Island, the Witch’s Ghost) involve the full gang. Others (Ghoul School, Reluctant Werewolf, the Boo Brothers) have Shaggy and Scoob (and Scrappy) on their own adventures. 

oh hey and in ghoul school, looking for some peace and quiet, they get hired as gym teachers at a school for girls, that turns out to be a school for ghouls. Despite being terrified,  

image

they stay, become fantastic teachers, inspire their students and lead them to victory in the volleyball champion, and then risk their lives saving the students from an evil witch and spider minions. 

oh and they befriend an adult mummy, vampire, wolfman, and phantom along the way

not to mention whenever they hang with the rest of the gang, they invariably get used trap bait against their expressed wishes. but still they stick around

oh, and despite their reluctance, scoob and shaggy regularly play some of the most vital roles in the gang’s adventures, to the point the movie posters regularly feature them as the most prominent members. the rest of the gang may provide the motivation, but shaggy and scooby are the lifeblood of the show:

imageimageimageimage

conclusion: Shaggy Rogers and Scoobert Doo have enormous hearts that lead them to face their greatest fears on an almost daily basis for the sake of protecting those they care about.

PROTECT AND APPRECIATE SHAGGY ROGERS

Also, THEY ARE ALWAYS RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY AND DOING SUPER DANGEROUS STUFF. THEY ARE BURNING MORE CALORIES THAN THEY HAVE IN THEIR BODIES. OF COURSE THEY’RE GONNA EAT LIKE CRAZY. IF THEY DON’T EAT CONSTANTLY THEY’LL DIE.

im currently kinning jared 19 

Also the mystery machine was originally Shaggy’s but he gave it to Fred because he’s too anxious to drive more often than not. Miss me with this fake as shit about my favorite guy.

In this house, we stan Norville “Shaggy” Rogers.

Shaggy would be a great Green lantern

Let’s not forget how in Mystery Inc., Scooby drives a FREAKIN’ TANK to rescue Shaggy from military school. These two are good bois.

PLP (Pearls Loving Pearls)

Regarding the recent episodes, particularly Volleyball. Was Pink Diamond an abuser? Yes. Definitely. She did a lot of unforgivable shit. I do not blame people for being mad at her. Hell, Steven literally hides her portrait in Lion's mane because he doesn't like to be reminded of her.

But the key word is 'was'. The episode showed that both Pearls saw two sides of Pink. One saw the destructive brat. The other saw the reckless and repressed gem who tries to do good [and still fails a lot, imo].

Basically, When she was with Pink Pearl, Pink was like the other Diamonds. Entitled. Bratty. Typical tyrant wannabe. But was constantly ignored, locked up even. Then she snapped. The anger and rage of being ignored manifesting in a destructive force that cracks Pink Pearl's eye.

Then, here's what sets her apart from the other diamonds, and, in my opinion, makes her the better one out of the four: She felt bad for what she did and began bottling up her emotions. And tried to change for the better in whatever way she knew how.

But she still fell short. She was on her own, with no one but the Diamonds who are far from supportive and gems programmed to do her bidding. She wanted to be better but she was ignorant. So she fucked up. A lot. And she's hated for it, understandably. The consequences of her actions were dire. It shouldn't be forgiven just because she meant well/didn't know any better. She was basically terrible at being good. And she knew it. This is the Pink our Pearl saw.

The whole episode was about both pearls not seeing the whole picture, which is ironically what a lot of fans are going through. Pink Pearl saw the destructive, abusive side of Pink Diamond and tried to defend it. Our Pearl saw her changing for the better and tried to defend the many horrible decisions she made along the way.

Pink is a representation of abusers who were also victims of abuse themselves. She represents bad people that tried to be good but... stumbled, fell, and hurt many along the way. Pink represents change and growth. And that it is not gonna be all smooth sailing, especially if you came from a terrible place. That redemption is far from easy. That it can't earn forgiveness nor stop the pain.

So many were hurt and are still hurting from the things Pink did. She definitely does not deserve forgiveness. But you do not need to forgive a person to acknowledge that they have changed. You do not need to stop hurting in order to move forward. An abuser changing for the better does not mean forgiveness. It just means they stop causing anymore problems.

His face makes the joke worth it

Sonic Team Argentina has recently interviewed Max Schneider, who worked as an animator for the Sonic Movie, on details involving the redesign, Sonic’s original design, and the time it took to do all of it. 

He told them that it took 5 months of work to change Sonic’s model for the movie. The process began with his head. According to him, the animators were given Sonic’s original model for the movie in one side, and Modern Sonic’s model to compare the two, and try to find a balance between both designs. The last thing they animated were the shoes. 

It was made clear that there was no crunch in the animation process at all, and the whole process was done at a leisurely pace. Also, it was stated that the redesign didn’t cost as much as some sites said originally said, the most accurate estimate is the one shown more recently in some news portals, it being US$ 5 Million.

Max Schneider also said the reason why Paramount wanted to do the movie with the original design. Since the movie was live-action, they wanted to do a more realistic Sonic, so he wouldn’t look out of place with real humans. That’s what Paramount believed was for the best.

image

“It took a lot of months to change the design, since a considerate portion of the movie was finished. Most of the times, we had to create a new rig, and create new animation with what was basically a new character.  There were some animations done with old design rig that we could repurpose to the new design. But a lot of the scenes featuring the old animation rig didn’t fit with the new design, so we had to animate it all over again.”, says Max.

image

Max also confirmed that there will be tons of Ester Eggs for fans, and says that while he only watched a few snippets of the movie (the ones that he animated), those that have already watched the full movie said that it was good!
