Sign the Petition

stnetwork:

beauty-grace-outer-space:

Please. 

Please sign and share. Please. 

It took me less than a minute to sign it and you can choose to remain anonymous. If you want to add a comment but can’t think of anything, here’s something to get you going (but I highly recommend you write your own lest we have another situation where signatures are viewed as fake for copy and pasted content): 

“Star Trek has forever served as a beacon of hope for equality, justice, and good to prevail in a world that so often disappoints and fails us. For Quentin Tarantino to have an role in continuing the franchise is a blatant slap to the face for all Star Trek fans of all generations. A child rape apologist has no place in this franchise. An alleged abusive director has no place in this franchise. A man who knew first hand what Harvey Weinstein was doing to women and told him to “make it right” if he wanted a place on his films has no place in this franchise. Quentin Tarantino has no place in this franchise.” 

I don’t care how desperate any of us are for another movie. It would be meaningless and a slap in the face to anyone who has ever suffered abuse like this if this monster works on it. Sign the petition and make some damn fan films if you need to, but keep this man far away from Star Trek.

Sign, sign, sign! It’s not useless! Change.org’s petitions are gaining more and more weight in final decision. We can show that we, the fandom, will not endorse this heresy. What Tarantino represents isn’t what Star Trek represents. Things are going much too far. Let it be known how many of us will not pay to watch such a movie in any form or shape.

This is important indeed. As artists, we try to make a difference, often for the best. A Star Trek movie by Tarantino sounds more like an attack than a promise of hope and good things to come.

Make your call.

Hoo boy, that attempt at guided meditation was a crash and burn. Apparently my subconscious rebels violently against light based imagery.

The Three Laws of Fandom

ozhawkauthor:

If you wish to take part in any fandom, you need to accept and respect these three laws.

If you aren’t able to do that, then you need to realise that your actions are making fandom unsafe for creators. That you are stifling creativity.

Like vaccination, fandom only works if everyone respects these rules. Creators need to be free to make their fanart, fanfics and all other content without fear of being harassed or concern-trolled for their creative choices, no matter whether you happen to like that content or not.

The First Law of Fandom

Don’t Like; Don’t Read (DL;DR)

It is up to you what you see online. It is not anyone else’s place to tell you what you should or should not consume in terms of content; it is not up to anyone else to police the internet so that you do not see things you do not like. At the same time, it is not up to YOU to police fandom to protect yourself or anyone else, real or hypothetical.

There are tools out there to help protect you if you have triggers or squicks. Learn to use them, and to take care of your own mental health. If you are consuming fan-made content and you find that you are disliking it - STOP.

The Second Law of Fandom

Your Kink Is Not My Kink (YKINMK)

Simply put, this means that everyone likes different things. It’s not up to you to determine what creators are allowed to create. It’s not up to you to police fandom

If you don’t like something, you can post meta about it or create contrarian content yourself, seek to convert other fans to your way of thinking.  

But you have no right to say to any creator “I do not like this, therefore you should not create it. Nobody should like this. It should not exist.”

It’s not up to you to decide what other people are allowed to like or not like, to create or not to create. That’s censorship. Don’t do it.

The Third Law of Fandom

Ship And Let Ship (SALS)

Much (though not all) fandom is about shipping. There are as many possible ships as there are fans, maybe more. You may have an OTP (One True Pairing), you may have a NOTP, that pairing that makes you want to barf at the very thought of its existence.

It’s not up to you to police ships or to determine what other people are allowed to ship. Just because you find that one particular ship problematic or disgusting, does not mean that other people are not allowed to explore its possibilities in their fanworks.

You are free to create contrarian content, to write meta about why a particular ship is repulsive, to discuss it endlessly on your private blog with like-minded persons.

It is not appropriate to harass creators about their ships, it is not appropriate to demand they do not create any more fanworks about those ships, or that they create fanwork only in a manner that you deem appropriate.

These three laws add up to the following:

You are not paying for fanworks content, and you have no rights to it other than to choose to consume it, or not consume it. If you do choose to consume it, do not then attack the creator if it wasn’t to your taste. That’s the height of bad manners.

Be courteous in fandom. It makes the whole experience better for all of us.

Watch out people, tumblr is fucking with dashboards again

vallisagarwaen:

   Last year we introduced Safe Mode, which filters sensitive content in your dashboard and search results so you have control over what you see and what you don’t. And now that it’s been out for a while, we want to make sure everyone has the chance to try it out.                    

   Over the next couple weeks, you might see some things in your dashboard getting filtered. If you like it that way, that’s great. If you don’t, no problem. You can go back by turning off Safe Mode [there’s a link here in the original mail] any time.


There is no information, NOWHERE, what will be filtered.

There is no information HOW we should even notice things getting filtered.


Also, NOT EVERY TUMBLR USER GETS THIS MAIL. SHARE IT FOR THOSE WHO DON’T.

New Study Finds That Transgender Identity Is Not A Mental Disorder

hellatrans:

gaypeachs:

sashavart:

projectqueer:

The research, led by the National Institute of Psychiatry, interviewed 250 transgender people and found that it is not a mental disorder as once believed. Apparently, distress and impairment are the two essential characteristics of a mental disorder, and they found transgender people can experience some distress but not because they are transgender, but because of social rejection and violence.

In the end it’s proven. I’m fucking crazy and transgender but the first isn’t a consequence of the last. ^^

Fucking suck it you ugly terfs, transmeds, and truscum.

To most of us trans peeps this is a “water is wet” post but ya all wouldn’t listen. Well now ya can’t say shit about us being crazy without knowing ur 100% wrong lol

I like the idea of a vampire not really concerned with right or wrong, but basically going after those who /do/ wrong because he can get away with it

Does he really care about if it’s wrong to go after a teenage girl? Does it matter to him if he uses and manipulates her?  No, but getting a reputation for pulling that shit – getting a reputation for being a creep and a user – certainly inconveniences him.  It’s more work to lure prey when you’re seen as bad.

Does he give a shit that an asshole is harrassing somebody?  Does he actually care about protecting innocent people?  No, but it sure looks good when he steps in and stops the asshole.  He’s such a good guy! People trust him! People will go out of their way to defend him.

Also I imagine a vampire would get a kick out of manipulating people and their perceptions.

Ah dear god why my knee why the middle of the night why must my fleshy bits hurt me

Okay, like… I already know that my left knee always hurts more right before my period (it has to do with the drop in estrogren levels that occurs).  

But apparently the likelihood of cerebral palsy-linked knee pain is “almost five times higher in girls than boys” and “increased with age by about 13% per year” according to a study done at the  Children’s Orthopaedic Center in Los Angeles (this article from 2015 calls it recent).

So hooray! Yet more ways that my brain damage at birth gets to fuck up my life!
