sickhypnotik:

you know how you say words so many times and they lose their meaning? that’s how I feel about the words “trauma” and “trigger” right now.

Bioware is the company who made a canon bisexual woman only available for male shepards

Bioware is the company that had a fucking beauty contest for me3’s default femshep’s appearance

Bioware is the company that made Femshep’s unable to call Kaidan out on his shit if she romanced someone else in ME2 & he tried to pull the whole “cheated” line while Maleshep’s could instantly shut down Ashley in the same scene

Bioware is the company that made a race of sexy, blue aliens and then proceeded to slut shame them & toss any agency or respectfullness that a long-lived species could have had out the window for the male dudebro’s titillation

Bioware is the company that created a genetically engineered “perfect” woman and then had every character in the game call her bitch, slut and every name in between.

Bioware is the company that made zero mention of there even being a female Shepard until the last game of the series

Bioware is the company that made it so that FemShep was the only Shepard that had an LI die on her no matter what they did in the previous games.

Bioware is also the company that made it so one of of FemShep’s LI’s cheated on her and got another woman pregnant and then had that LI come back later and say they were going to name the baby after her & Shepard had to be totally fine with it.

Don’t you fucking dare reblog something from me about the underrepresentation & mistreatment of women in Bioware games and tell me how ” they are all for what you want” when this shit is not what I want in my video games.

This is an ancient Roman amulet for luck. Yes those are flying penises.

Also of note, the Roman god of marriage, Mutunus Tutunus, whose name is derived from two Latin slang words for penis. His name is essentially Dick Wiener. If you have ever wondered just how much like us the Romans were, read the etymology section. 

Oh look.
It’s a flying fuck.
It used to be given, and now look, it’s no more.

LITERALLY. A FLYING FUCK.

Alright, folks. I need your help. There is an 18-year-old woman who needs help funding her abortion. We’ve only got a couple of days to raise the money, so signal boost this if you can.

"I was approached today by my friend whose 18 year old sister is 4.5 months pregnant and in need of an abortion. The cost of the abortion is $3,200 and she needs to raise $2,200 for the abortion alone. Her abortion is this Thursday. So this is an emergency drive. She will have to drive 250 miles one way in order to get the abortion, so the figure of $2,200 does not cover gas or housing. Abortion access is under attack throughout the United States, and expecially in Texas. Help this person be able to access what should be a basic human right. Anything helps!"

whats up w/ grown men who look at all the evils of the modern world and go “the real enemy is teenage girls, with their duckface and their smartphones and their selfies and their boy bands. they are destroying culture”

I’ve never met any grown men who have said this. Way to invent a boogieman out of your own prejudiced thoughts.

credited to Jon Friedman and Joel Stein, two grown men

chris o’shea is also a grown man

this thread on The Escapist’s forums is full of grown men complaining about teenage girls doing duck face

i’m willing to admit some of the people in this thread on Social Anxiety Support Forums may just be nasty little boys, but several are grown men

this took me two minutes. go away

I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)

why touch her hair though? Dammit…

Reason number 45-60754280865’11B I won’t go on a mission trip.

I am soooo done

Mission trips make me sick

ugh


This baby girl is being treated like a tourist attraction or a wild animal and I am not here for this. This picture says so much about the owner of that white hand.

This photo makes me feel so uncomfortable

this photo makes me fucking angry.and a mission trip? .. yeah, aka colonialism.

Get OUT of our countries with this fucking bullshit, honestly. Missionaries are already fucking so much up in African countries. As a gay Nigerian I LIVE the repercussions of this daily. I’ve been exorcised, had bibles thrown at me, been sent to priests for a “cure”, been given spiritual baths which burn my skin to “wash the devil out of me” you name it. Done by my own family and people at the behest of “our Lord and Savior”. It’s traumatic, and especially hurtful when we understand that general acceptance of same sex love and eroticism and more nuanced, varied understandings of gender were the norm PRIOR to colonization and missionary activity.

And then we have pictures like this to remind us of the OTHER bullshit these missionary fuckers do. They roll up in our countries as “white saviors” and are constantly doing racist bullshit like this. Objectifying us, casting us as “primitive” and in need of being saved from ourselves and our “heathen” ways. Let’s not even start on the rampant sexual abuses priests committed against Africans across the continent. The ways in which they destroyed and suppressed our cultures. Made us hate ourselves to the point that today we call our own grandfathers and grandmothers with traditional beliefs “despicable heathens” and Satanists. Where they have so warped our cultures, identities and understanding of self, to fit THEIR white colonial mold.

We forget that missionaries came as colonizers first and foremost, and in many cases caused far more egregious and long lasting damage than the colonial administrators themselves. And they are still doing it today. Look at the rise of Christian fundamentalism in Africa in the last 30 years and you will see a direct correlation with a rise in hate and animus against same sex loving and trans people in many African countries. Watch the movie “God Loves Uganda” if you don’t believe me: the legacy and impact of missionaries on Africa is DAMNING and is getting WORSE, especially for those of us who identify as LGBTQ.

It makes me sick. This picture makes me sick. Missionaries make me sick. What they have done to our cultures and communities and traditions makes me sick. Their racism cloaked with a smile and their “good Book” makes me sick. The fact that they think that they’re “doing good” while they’re just reproducing white supremacist patriarchal colonial structures of control, domination and subjugation makes me sick. They don’t see us as full people, but as spectacles for their white gaze, as this picture makes so bitingly clear, and they don’t give a damn as long as they make their God “happy”

You have caused so much pain in my life and that of many of my friends. It hurts.

GET THE FUCK OUT OF AFRICA (or wherever this pic was taken) AND LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!!!!

And a big fuck you to all of the people doing mission “service trips” to ~*aFRicA*~ too. 
 
I’m utterly and completely done.
