I reblog whatever I feel like at the time... Meaning you're gonna see some majorly random shit.. And I don't fucking care what you think, so don't bother judging me
You should never be worried about leaving the house without pants, because you should always be shown the respect you deserve, no matter what you choose to wear.
I took part in the GoPantless movement at Baltimore Artscape 2014, it was a great experience and I look forward to participating next year.
So if you don’t know anything about the GoPantless movement, here is a little bit about it, as I see it.
Pantless flash mobs are events used to bring attention to a serious problem with our society. People are often viewed negatively based on how they dress or present themselves, whether it be blaming, shaming, discriminating, or transphobia, it can turn into bullying and cat calling. No one is safe from being a victim of this kind of disrespect, because it is as easy and commonplace as using slurs or derogatory terms. There are a lot of people who don’t even realize that they’ve been disrespectful of someone. That is why it is important to keep an open mind.
Part of the movement addresses the issue of rape victims, who in most rape cases are accused of having worn something which encouraged their attacker. - As I was walking around today handing out the little paper fliers we’d been given, this was one of the parts to the cause that most of the people were shocked by.
Another part shines light on the problem of transphobia and bullying. Frequently when someone sees a man dressed as a woman, a woman dressed as a man, or such, they don’t know enough about what non-binary gender identity to understand why the person does it. Most of the time they won’t realize that a person is transgender or see it as being unnatural or wrong. - I’ve had people who even after I tell them that my name is Aiden, still think of me as a female, and still others will refuse to see me as being a guy. There were multiple times today when I had to explain it to some of the people. Like when the one woman hadn’t realized that Aiden/Aidan is actually a predominantly masculine name, whereas Nadia/Nedia is the feminine counterpart. However, the two people whom I had the good fortune of walking around with had actually asked me about my pronouns. I also happened to run into one of the people responsible for the Transgender rights act in Baltimore, which was pretty cool.
Overall, I had a lot of fun today, I made two new friends, I ran into some of my other friends, and helped spread the movement.
Because really at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you wear, all that matters is that you feel happy with who you are and that you are given the respect you deserve. No pants, No Problem.
I love gay emo boys, sexiest type of boy that I can think of
Good friends will correct people who use the wrong pronouns…

So there’s this show I’ve become addicted to on BBC America, called In The Flesh.. It’s about zombies.. Or PDS (Partial Deceased Syndrome) sufferers… They are the undead. They are the redeemed.
So this show is actually incredibly deep, but in a way that you wouldn’t notice it right away. However, just take a look at the storyline and replace PDS sufferers with pretty much any minority that faces discrimination. This is a zombie series unlike any other.
The first season though short (only 3 episodes), was very good. It focused on the recovery of PDS sufferers and their return to society. Showing the difficulties involved in being seen as something wrong or unnatural by friends, family, and others around you. The hardships involved in intolerance and acceptance, and how families can become closer or crumble and friendships be broken or made through them.
You see Kieren Walker, a PDS sufferer who came back after having killed himself, struggle to accept what he has become, desperate for his family and neighbors not to be afraid of him, and in the process making a friend, Amy. And even though he still doesn’t quite accept himself, he comes to terms with the fact he can’t go back to the way he was, and that he doesn’t want to give up on trying to have a better life.
With the second season they brought in more plot twists and characters, and in my opinion, t was easily better than the first. Though that may just be due to the adorable romance. They brought in Simon, who greatly changed the story dynamics between Kieren and Amy, in more ways than one.
I highly recommend watching an episode, I’ll give you the link to the first, but from there you’ll have to find them yourselves, just like I do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzFF_N_RRBE
I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to live in a perpetual Pride Festival
So that was awesome just know… old couple started to ask if i was my dad’s son… they had to be like 70-80.. I am passing to old people!
So the shota is dating a twink…. both are sado-masochists… it is glorious
I need to clean my closet so that adorable people can live in it
………I’m the kind of person who would do that… hell if I’m sitting next to someone and I’m bored or don’t have anything useful to add to the conversation, I’ll just randomly reach out like “pooooooke”
What if I wasn’t so afraid of being alone… What if I didn’t feel like I have to have someone to pay attention to me or actively care about me, so that I don’t feel like I’m going to fall apart……. What if I wasn’t like this………
…I think the reason that I’m the way that I am…. Is because of being homeschooled… I’d only ever gotten to have one year of public school and it had been kindergarten at that….. and then after that I spent the majority of my life alone…. which is why I ended up with a head full of imaginary people and why I try to make friends with anyone that holds still long enough….
…and that is probably why I don’t do well when I’m alone… because it makes me remember the way things were and I get scared that everyone around me is gonna start leaving again like when I was growing up…. and so I get kinda clingy at times, and try to go out of my way to do things to make people happy…. still never being able to really spend any time with friends……
…and then when I’d started trying to finally date.. I was always so desperate to not mess things up, that I’d mess them up and then be just that much more clingy and desperate trying to keep them from leaving… which led to trying to always find someone else to hold close…. which always seemed to end the same way…….
…still not being able to see friends or people I dated that often……
……I still don’t get to see anyone that much…. I mean, because of being in college now, I get to see my friends several times a week… but don’t really get to hang out that much outside of campus……
And even in my groups of friends… I always feel kinda like I’m on the outside still…. like at times I’m still alone, even when I’m surrounded by people who I call friends….
…..it makes me wonder…..
What would I be like now, if I’d not been homeschooled…. Would I still like the things I like… Would I still be like I am…. Would I have just ended up the outsider, even if I’d grown up where I’d be surrounded by people…… Or would I be different….. Would I still be mentally unstable………
…Would I even be able to recognize myself……
"…And I’m trying so hard. To just maintain some sense of sanity. While driving myself insane…..”
You should read this, regardless of if you own or even like snakes…
I watched the full video, and I’m not sure what made me feel sicker;
Seeing such a beautiful creature doing something so harmful/potentially fatal to itself…
Or the fact that someone would stand stood there recording, making remarks about the snakes intelligence and joking about suicide, rather than doing anything to help the poor creature.
If you are really so sadistic as to find this as ‘cute’ or ‘funny’, than you have some serious issues, and shouldn’t be allowed to have a pet. Or to care for anything alive for that matter.
I don’t understand how anyone could find an animal of any kind in distress, whether it be a snake so hungry that it starts eating itself, a kitten falling down the stairs, a bird that repeatedly flies into a window, a turtle stuck on its back.. or a squirrel with a slurpee cup lid caught around its neck like a cone for a dog (Use to come to my back porch almost every day for 2 years.. I’d watched the poor thing end up knocking down half the food it tried to eat.. I always wished there was some way I could catch it to get it off)….
There have been species which have gone extinct, because no one stopped to realize that there might have been something wrong, and instead just laughed at the “stupid animals” as the last surviving of their kind beat themselves to death against the cage walls.
For a people who seem so concerned with humanity and getting equal rights for just about everyone and everything at this point.. There is still a large amount who are anything but humane. Whether it be toward an animal or another person.
Whatever happened that whole “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” ..I’ve never read a bible and really I don’t plan to ever do so, but according to the internet, that is where it comes from.. And it was something that I’d always been told growing up, and something that I’ve tried to live by…
This is awesome
