LITERALLY WHAT IS THE HARM IN SAYING A CHARACTER IS BISEXUAL NOTHING OF PREVIOUS HETERO RELATIONSHIPS IS GLOSSED OVER IT GIVES REPRESENTATION TO A GROUP WHO IS OFTEN ERASED AND NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO FIGHT ABOUT THIS KIND OF SHIT WHY IS THIS EVEN A PROBLEM
no shade @ anyone but i pray to god that i’m not on tumblr.com in my late 20s/early 30s but instead my career is peaking i’m making bank i got a nice house and i got somebody waiting at…
Oh my. This poor dear child.
I’m twenty six years old. I have a doctorate. I have a fulfilling full time job where I love what I do. It pays very well, and has great benefits, while still sticking to an actual forty hour work week.
Even though I’m staying with my parents temporarily, I have the money put together for the move as soon as I figure out which town and pick a place to sign a lease for. I already own a car, which us new and PSID off. I’m not seeing anyone right now, but that has more to do with me being asexual than any thing else - if I was straight and wanted to have a boyfriend, I could probably nab one just fine.
And guess what? Being a career person doesn’t mean I’m not in fandom any more. I have spent hours in neatchat crying over Bucky feels with people from Tumblr, sometimes as a way to unwind after a long day at work. I get weekdays off sometimes because I work alternate weekends, and when I had the day off today, I went to Hot Topic after buying new jeans to replace a worn out pair, and debated the merits of purchasing a Castiel figurine before deciding on an anti possession symbol necklace and a Legend of Zelda shield keychain (that may eventually end up attached to keys for work, if I’m feeling daring).
Being a “grown up” does not mean dropping all of your other hobbies and interests. Or at least, it shouldn’t, not if you want to live a happy and well balanced life.
Furthermore, if your career peaks around the age of thirty, you apparently are planning on either somehow attempting to retire around age forty or going into a downward spiral of extreme midlife crisis around that time, neither of which I would recommend. (And if you think thirty is old, I will attempt to keep my laughter to myself. But I will be laughing. Long and loudly.)
As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.
One hundred percent support
i cant even tell you how sick to fucking death of this body policing bullshit i am. its 2014, we’ve cloned sheep, get the fuck over it and hire a person with cotton candy pink hair and metal in their face, what the fuck is the problem???
but seriously. if we cant allow employees to have piercings because its “not safe”, how can we allow customers with piercings to enter stores? what if a customer sneaks into a blocked off isle and his eyebrow ring gets caught on some machinery or something? what if a loaf of bread falls on someone with a lip ring and they get horribly injured? i call bullshit.
If there’s no safety hazard from the piercings (which, in most cases, there wouldn’t be) and any visible tattoos are not notably inappropriate for the workplace in question (for example, swear words or sexually explicit images in a workplace with children), then I see no reason to disallow them. I mean, I’d love to rock purple hair IRL, but given my field I know that is probably going to have to wait for when I retire in forty years or so unless attitudes change significantly in the meantime. Hell, I felt the need to grow my hair out much longer than I am comfortable wearing it in order to maximize my chances of getting hired quickly upon finishing my education (I’ve since gotten it bobbed, though I was unfortunately unable to donate the hair cut off, as it wasn’t quite long enough and I couldn’t stand to leave it any more).
We have some half the fat ice cream in our fridge and I literally had to stop myself from exclaiming, “Why do we even HAVE that lever” at my fridge.
Okay but this doesn’t taste like anything. IT HAS NO SUBSTANCE.
I’M SORRY, MY DAD IS LIKE THAT TOO
My parents do things like that with desserts, too, when there are even any in the house. Like, those diet frozen Greek yogurt things that don’t even taste that great (yogurt is a side dish, not a dessert, guys!) and stuff. As it’s starting to look like I’m not going to be moving out of their house and into a new apartment until probably September, I eventually basically asked “if I went out and bought a thing, what would you not feel tempted by or whatever?” and after listening to and considering their answers… went and bought peanut butter chocolate ice cream (a.k.a. basically my favorite flavor yum yum) and shoved it in the back of the freezer in an opaque plastic bag. Which reminds me, I need to go buy some more sometime vaguely soon-ish.
Don’t get me wrong, my parents are usually at least halfway reasonable with most food things. Or at least they don’t particularly care if I buy things that they don’t plan to partake of with me, if nothing else, and they aren’t a quarter the level of ridiculous of this one uncle of mine who I literally don’t even have words for. But yeah, I can definitely imagine what it would be like if their occasional bouts of foolishness were a 24/7 thing, and I don’t like that line of imagining.
This is terrifying.
Yet they claim that the queer community is overly sexual and puts our sex lives out there. Straight people are weird.
literally what the fuck
ill throw up on a baby i don’t care
Oh. My. God. Who the fuck thought any of these were a good idea? O_o DO NOT WANT
I still want to bulk buy these and adonize batch pink.
And it would still get stuck in my hair…
now THIS is what I’m fucking talking about
EDIT: IT FUNCTIONS AS A FUCKING ORANGE PEELER, AND EVEN A LAMP IF YOU HAVE A STRING AND SOME OIL. SERIOUSLY???
JUST IN CASE YOU APPARENTLY NEED AN EMERGENCY ONE FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES?
I want one of these very, very much. If I can find it in a brick and mortar store, I will probably add it to my purchase immediately, and if not I will likely eventually buy one online.
Do you ever go to your fridge because you’re hungry, but once you open it you just stare inside and want none of it? You open your pantry but still nothing appeals to you. Maybe someone even comes and suggests something, and even though you don’t know what you want, you still know that everything they said isn’t right. So you just stand around confused and hungry for no reason.
That’s what it’s like to be an asexual with a sex drive.
Your Dessert Personality
WTF. I don’t like either of mine.
I demand a recount.
My MBTI personality type is INTJ. Ironically, I actually do really like tiramisu. Perhaps less surprisingly, I actually am at least somewhat fond of nearly every dessert matched with one of the personality types (I’m not into carrot cake or cheesecake that isn’t the most chocolatey ever, for example, but most other desserts are fine by me unless they have coconut in them.) On a related note, funnily enough… my career field, if mentioned in MBTI information, is generally listed in conjunction with either my type of INTJ or only one letter off in ISTJ or INTP.
why isnt anyone talking to me about chubby bucky, this is an outrage
no seriously, is nobody else down with this
nobody got love for chubby bucky
Send me an ask? Some other tumblr users to go talk to may…
Thank you for including that link (I’m on mobile, and not the best at making usable Tumblr links anyways) in addition to replying. Oh, and FYI: I have some art I’ll be scanning sometime soon onto my secondary blog. ;D
