enhancedpyrotechnics:

i was just on Argus on my tauren and saw this dwarf trying to get to one of the special treasure chests, except he obviously didn’t know where it was because he was trying to climb the wrong side of the building. so i stared /wave-ing at him until he noticed me, then led him around to the pile of rocks he had to climb and showed him how to jump over to the chest. and he /cheer’ed and /thank’ed me, which was cool.

and then i typed /bye and leapt off the edge of mac’aree and died.

did i intend to do that last part? no. but he doesn’t know that. so now i have eternally implanted myself in this dude’s memory as “that crazy druid who showed me how to get treasure and then fucking hurled herself back into the abyss”, which, honestly? is one of my better achievements in this game.

what if people described other things the way they sensationalize “frivolous lawsuits” that actually made complete sense

“Archduke Franz Ferdinand was injured during a traffic incident and suddenly half of Europe is at war whoaa talk about overreacting”

pearl hanging out with the humans season 1:

pearl hanging out with the humans season 3:

pearl hanging out with the humans season 4:

It’s like a journey from compulsive femininity to embracing her butchness. Also, it’s kind of like a big 🖕 to Homeworld since they were all about sticking her in dresses and she put on pants at the first opportunity while defying her intended role.

Exactly. To me it feels like everyone saying Pearl can’t be butch because she wears dresses, pastels or what have you are consciously forcing that femininity onto a character that actively chooses to wear masc attire. “She wears dresses in the beginning, and has a bow or a bit of lace so she can’t ever be anything but femme,” ignore the fact that she continually chooses to wear suits and pants and leather and forwent the dress entirely in her casual attire. She was initially dressed up to be Pretty and Cute and Good but she rebelled against that system completely. Just the visual jump from Pink Diamond’s Pearl to Rebel Pearl is huge. I would love to have seen Pearl choosing her rebel attire like >:3 and going for the plain leotard like it’s her most rebellious act yet.

Whether she’s butch doesn’t depend just on what she wears, butch is more than how one looks, but since she took the role as Rose’s chivalrous knight and protector and would ride or die for her femme 4 lyfe ON TOP of saying “fuck dresses and every other expectation this backwards ass society is trying to force onto me, I’m going to be a SWORD FIGHTER and a MECHANIC” yeah I don’t give a shit about her bow.

She was even dressed in men’s court fashion in a flashback! (Although it was Connie imagining her, but Connie knows Pearl well enough to know her tastes.)

I’m hoping her next regeneration’s outfit is just the most obnoxiously fancy pastel tux ever. Like “18th century French nobleman” levels of obnoxiously fancy.

nah that was steven’s imagination, since he knew what she actually looked like back then (from that picture WAY BACK in so many birthdays)

but yes otherwise that is an excellent point.

Same goes for the comics tbh.

And don’t forget this iconic one:

These horrific, sexist, racist paragraphs - screenshotted and shared for posterity by James Smythe, to whom we are all indebted - are the work of one Liam O’Flynn, a writer and English teacher. Evidently, they come from his book Writing With Stardust: the Ultimate Descriptive Guide for students, parents, teachers, and lovers of English, and are intended as examples of good writing.

UM.

Dear white male writers: DO NOT DO THIS SHIT. IT IS SUPER GROSS AND FETISHISTIC AND ALSO TERRIBLE WRITING. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS. 

Like I just. “Her virility-brown eyes -” WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN? How can you have an “Amazonian figure” ON a “wafer-thin body” when “figure” is a word that describe’s a body’s shape, and Amazonian means pretty much the DIRECT FUCKING OPPOSITE of “wafer-thin” in the first place?  What the shitting fuck does ANY of this mean, apart from “I am only nebulously familiar with the concept of women and completely at a loss if I can’t compare their various bodyparts to jewels, animals and footstuffs”?

STOP 

GO TO WRITING JAIL

GO DIRECTLY TO WRITING JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200

tag yourself i’m the two beryl-green jewels in the snow

if her ears frame her nose do they like, grow directly beside her nose? how does she see from them?

lovers of english

oh my goddddddd

i can’t get over this fucking post

“I loved her nebulous, eden-green eyes which were a-sparkle with the ‘joie de vivre’. They were like two beryl-green jewels melted onto snow.”

1. what the fuck is joie de vivre

2. melted jewels?

3. beryl green

eden green:

WHICH ONE IS ITTTTTTTTT

@laughlikesomethingbroken “Joie de vivre” is a French phrase that literally translates to “joy of living”, while it IS one of those phrases that gets used in English in this context it is SO EXTRA AND UNNECESSARY OH MY GOD. Don’t use French to make yourself sound sophisticated when you’re NOT I don’t know where to even START. Curvilinear waist? Sugar candy-sweet? What the FUCK are seraph’s ears? Voguish clothes? What the everloving fuck is “constellation blue” supposed to mean??? Like forget the objectification, this writing is horrifying enough before we even get to the embedded sexism

seraph’s ears are ears that you can’t see bc they’re hidden behind her 6 wings

Oyster white teeth?

holy purple prose batman

Female writers do this too. Have you read a Mills and Boon novel? Have you read high school girls’ yaoi fanfics?

Uh oh, we were focusing too much on how a grown man is selling this shit and not enough shitting on teenage girls. Egalitarians here to put an end to that shit.

Guess what? I’ve read A LOT of Harlequin novels and a LOT of fanfic and I have never ever seen anything this horrible at description.

Also, none of those stories were trying to hold themselves up as high examples of the craft

You guys here is the description of the book on Amazon.

If this is the description I cannot think how bad the inside is.

I never ever want to hear anyone make fun of fanfic writers again

NEVER EVER

Lord god almighty. I’ve been feeling really down about my writing lately, but this is a confidence boost. 8I

“single but in a long term relationship”

3.6/5 is entirely too high a Goodreads score for this book

… that second one is describing a dog.

As well as the sexism, racism, purple prose, and general nonsense… “The moons delicate light”? At least learn to use apostrophes correctly before setting yourself up as a writing expert, good lord.

“You will find that this book will transform the way you think about descriptive writing.”

Well it sure did that…

Gosh

thebibliosphere:

I just woke up from a dream where I was pregnant, and ETD and I were having a gender reveal party hosted by Morticia Addams cause in my dream Morticia and I were besties and she kept giving me pretty solid advice on raising children.

And you know that thing people do where they cut into the cake and it reveals the gender? Well, we had a cake, but the outside frosting was black, like, void black with the occasional glimmer of starlight, and when the time came to cut the cake Gomez handed me a sword and I stabbed it and a rainbow of holographic glitter spilled everywhere and bats flew up into the night and all the “real” people in the dream were horrified at the mess and trying to escape, but Morticia just sipped her tea, letting the glitter rise around her ankles as it continued to spew forth from the void cake and just looked at me like “Congratulations, it’s a baby, probably. Cake?” and my happiness/terror at the ambiguity of that sentence straight up woke me up out of a dead sleep and now I’m telling all of you before I forget.

Cause that dream was awesome.

They thought they were going to rehab. They ended up in chicken plants

lezzyharpy:

seandotpolitics:

Across the country, judges increasingly are sending defendants to rehab instead of prison or jail. These diversion courts have become the bedrock of criminal justice reform, aiming to transform lives and ease overcrowded prisons.

But in the rush to spare people from prison, some judges are steering defendants into rehabs that are little more than lucrative work camps for private industry, an investigation by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

The programs promise freedom from addiction. Instead, they’ve turned thousands of men and women into indentured servants.

The beneficiaries of these programs span the country, from Fortune 500 companies to factories and local businesses. The defendants work at a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Oklahoma, a construction firm in Alabama, a nursing home in North Carolina.

There’s little drug rehabilitation going on at these labor camps. Some of the companies that utilize the slave labor are so dependent on it that they’d go under without it. Some of the industries these men are forced to work in are notoriously dangerous. When they’re injured, the companies file workers compensation claims – and keep the money for themselves, even though the workers are typically not employees but clients.

Warning: no matter how bad you think this story is going to be, it’s worse

dangerously close to a realization
