since i already reblogged a post about mel gonzales (pictured right), i didnt want to pass by mentioning scarlett lenh (pictured left), a trans girl who won homecoming queen at her high school in colorado
being a cishet looks boring why do people do that
Idk maybe bc sexuality/gender isnt based on how cool or interesting an individual wants to look
yeah but why be boring when u can be awesome and not cishet
yeah but why treat lgbt+ identities like some trendy fashion accessory that ppl can just slap on to look cool when u could not act like a complete idiot
the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)
I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.
ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.
the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!
With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said.
"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get
"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.
"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."
Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations.
"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.
Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.
This a million times
OP is incredibly ableist and misogynist. To call something a speech impediment as an insult, when real live people have speech impediments is really undeniably ableist. And of course, girls, especially teenage girls, are more likely to use this phrasing. (In my experience men are also more likely to use it if they are feminine—esp gay and bi men).
The funny thing is, a study I read showed that teenage girls are at the forefront of linguistic evolution. Informal linguistic shifts spearheaded by teenage girls, such as “he was like” and uptalking are examples of sophisticated ways of conveying information, expressing emotion, and even displaying power.
So yeah OP is quite literally trash.
This is the scheme that shows “ideal relationship” between different types.
Here’s the legend:
Id: same type; one is the image of the other one
C.ion: companion; they have similar ways of expression, good reciprocal company
En:enigma; they are totally unrelated in almost every aspect
Pal: friend, pal; they work well together, the conflict is minimal and natural
Sup: supplement; like Pal, but the functions are more removed: one can increase the other’s power
An: soul; the functions are reversed, those that one uses in a conscious way, the other uses in an unconscious way and back
Tr: tribe; they share the same sense of culture, but with different interests and abilities
No: novelty; intriguingly different
C.ent: complement; compatible forces with opposite emphasis
Sui: roommate; a person who you can share the office with. You like similar spaces, but you have little in common about goals and vision of the world
Ad: adviser; one has an introspection area that the other one misses
Nei: neighbour; you get the same conclusions with different processes
Con: contrast; every function is used in a different way
Coh: accomplice; mutually involved in experiences and adventures
Ped: pedagogue; one is mentor and student of the other one, there’s a parent-child relationship
Cou: counterpart; they use similar functions in totally different habitats
Please note! This is a translation from Italian done by a 16-years-old girl, so you can find some mistakes. Take it easy!

"They had so many different shields in this film. We had the heavy shields for the shots where I need to block myself, or it’s gonna be a close-up—it’s this nice, shiny, metallic. We have [the] rubber shield when I’m actually knocking someone out with it and I actually gotta hit somebody. We’ve had a couple of shields that are magnetic for when I gotta slip it on my back. And then we’ll use no shield at all every now and then. Every now and then, we’ll have to do a shot where I have to throw it and they’ll just CGI it.”

Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots. ‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading. ‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading. But secretly, you’d love to know what it’s like… Wouldn’t you? What it feels like for a girl.
— Charlotte Gainsbourg
A company in Australia by the name of HommeMystere started making lingerie for men in April of 2013. In the beginning, they received a lot of negative publicity, mostly from women fearing their boyfriends or husbands would start wearing lingerie. So much for femininism… Now, they have consistently been making a small fortune and have become quite popular in the fashion capitals of the world. So far:
- They have made two appearances at the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas.
- They have gone public in the United States, France, Sweden, and Japan.
- They have sold out of four lines of their clothing.
- And they have reached one million veiws on their YouTube channel.
What is more, because they do not focus on the gay community, they haven’t put any barriers up against straight men who happen to make up the majority of their orders. If that is not success, I do not know what is. Cheers, HommeMystere.
