Favourite BTVS Speeches:
↳ Rupert Giles, Innocence.
#remember that time a teen girl had sex on a show and it crashed and burned but her father figure was like ‘i think you made a good call’#like legitimately ‘based on the evidence- hitting that was 100% understandable and i support you’#oh - oh you were expecting an ‘i told you so’ or some kind of slut-shaming#LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO RUPERT F*CKING GILES
RUPERT FUCKING GILES PEOPLE
Rupert Fucking Giles.
I’m fairly certain I’ve reblogged this before, but goddamn, they’re all sO CUTE.
#Can we talk about how realistic this is #it literally has almost every body type and preference here #big thighed #skinny waist #freckles #tall #short #gay #straight #red kneed #thigh gap #tattoos #piercings #girls with short hair #guys with dyed hair #short dresses #skinny jeans #these could have been drawn so stereotypically yet they’re not #however they’re still perfect
Did I ever upload this? Can’t remember.
My Halloween costume a few years ago was an Arid Keeto from Subeta.
Regarding why trans people say they have always felt like x or y, what they are trying to express in colloquial and layman’s terms is the concept of gender identity, now more commonly referred to as either social sex identity and physical sex identity, which it two concepts, each distinct.
Roughly translated, the whole thing means that a Trans person is aware that they are a woman, man, both, or neither, at the same core level as they are aware of themselves as a person, distinct from other people.
Some people would prefer to argue that what this is suggesting is that there is a “brain sex” — and yet, that’s not what this is describing. It is describing a sense of self-awareness — which, while decidedly part of the brain’s physiology, is really part of the existential notion that one exists, and therefore is not part of that argument, nor even related directly to biological systems (though many studies indicate such, I’m not going to reference such as biological essentialism of that sort is somewhat contrary to existential systems such as Transcentrism).
What that means, as well, is that this description has nothing whatsoever to do with biology, and, therefore arguments about biology aren’t valid when contradicting it. It would be akin to saying that the United States army shouldn’t exist because of broccoli.
This all comes together in the core aspect here: like sexual orientation, this is part of what creates the sense of self in people, and it therefore is part of how they know that they exist as an individual human being, and is a part of that.
So the same question of how you know can be answered in as many different ways as there are people, and it is the still same way that those asking the question know what their social sex identity is.
This effectively makes it the trans version of the question “how do you know you are gay?”, with the same accurate answer “I just do, because I know I exist.”
The answer may not satisfy those seeking some sort of concrete answer, but it is inevitable that they themselves, will discount any answer because for them the same question remains unanswered in a way they would accept from a trans person, usually due to cis privilege.
AED, Liberating Transness
For those who keep asking how a trans woman knows she is a woman.
The answer is always “the same way I know I am a distinct human being, separate from others.”
It is not only true, but allows those asking to demonstrate their transphobia pretty much right off the bat.(via tonidorsay)

In 2006 we made this little burger meal for a competition on Craftster.org. It got quite a bit of online traffic at the time. Couldn’t find the links, so I re-edited and uploaded these for Parisa.
Me and Mr L put it together, and all the food was edible: baby onion, american cheese, baby gherkin, homemade bun, handcut fries. I made the tray and the drink out of polymer clay and printed up the Craftster branding.
oh my god
"Catfish"Please reblog don’t post as new. thank you! :3 High quality prints available soon, after I add a little jellyfish cat / cat jelly / jellykitty?? into the picture (yes, more opportunities for word games lol). If you’re interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified when they’re available!
First post on tumblr. It has to be hip. it has to be humerus.
Kentucky’s Newport Aquarium has announced that Sweet Pea, the first documented Shark Ray to breed in a controlled environment, gave birth to seven pups on January 24! Three females and three males survived the nearly five-hour birthing process, and are being carefully monitored.
See the video of this significant birth and learn more at Zooborns.
DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
