I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:

Him:

As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.

class:

*laughs*

Him:

No, really, I am.

Class:

*laughs again*

Him:

Why is that funny?

Asshole:

Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.

Him:

Well why not?

Asshole:

I dunno that's just the way that is.

Him:

I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.

Class:

*laughs*

Him:

Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?

Same Asshole:

No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.

Him:

*slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?

Asshole:

Because that's how it is.

Him:

Why?

Asshole:

That's their job.

Him:

Why?

Asshole:

*can't come up with another answer*

Him:

I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.

*note, my mother is a teacher like my father*

Him:

Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.

Class:

*silence*

Him:

Now.. Louis XVI

watson-sighs-and-tuts:

What if Clary and Jonathan  grew up together? What if Jocelyn managed to escape with both of them? What if she taught Jonathan what family, love and humanity is not by rejecting him but showing him through being there?

What if they were bickering over crayons and coals when they are little and they are drawing pictures of stuff  for mommy? “That’s my crayon Jonathan” “I need this colour, redhead” “Stop calling me that or I’ll smash this pot on your head” “Go ahead, mom will kill you” “I don’t care, it will be worth it!” and they struggle and pot smashes on the floor and they burst out laughing and then they clean up together and when Jocelyn comes back they are drawing one picture together not an inch of dirt on the floor and she thinks she did good?

What if they are on the cleaning duties and Jonathan leaves a pile of dirty dishes in the sink though it’s his turn and Clary yells: “Jonathan Christopher! You’re on cleaning duties! I’m not washing after you, you jerk” and he’s in  his room, casually reading giant volume on occultism and she barges in with her hands on her hips and he just states calmly “I’m in the middle of something Clarissa kindly close the door” and it makes her explode, that stoic condescending tone of his and she throws wet dishtowel at his face and he gasps: “Did you just throw this at me?” “No shit, Sherlock” “I’m so gonna get you now!” he gets up abruptly  and they are chasing each other around the kitchen and he gets to her and tries to smear the towel all over her face in revenge while she giggles and in the end they do the washing up together “You owe me one” Clary nudges him and Clary knows he will help her clean the house in return because he has her back just as much as she has his and when Jocelyn comes back and sees them doing the dishes together she thinks she did good?

What if the apartment in NY is filled with pictures of them together goofing around and laughing with little doodles for Jocelyn on Mother’s Day,  portraits of her and Luke and caricature of each other hang on the fridge and Jocelyn sometimes stops in the middle of making dinner, smiling at these pieces of happiness spread all around the house  and thinks to herself how this is home and how they managed. How they all did good.

And what if she was his sister and he was her brother and nothing else mattered but this: home, family and being there for each other for better and for worse, despite the blood, the past and prejudice of the world?

Writers Block Resource Master Post

You’ve just received an amazing reply that leaves your breathless from one of your rp partners. You can’t wait to get started on your reply! You open up that word doc and your fingers begin to move but wait a minute… you can barely get a sentence into your response before you become stuck. Your muse prances off back into the woods and you’re forced to hit your head against your keyboard for hours trying to come up with some mediocre reply in order to keep the plot going. Before this happens just STOP right there and take look at the ways that have successfully worked for me whenever I’m trying to lure my writing muse back out into the open.Background Noise: At times when when I’m trying to seriously engage in heavy writing I need some sort of noise in my ears to prevent silence from becoming overwhelming or to block outside distractions. When I’m having a really difficult time concentrating music with lyrics can be too much. Which is why I turn to different sound sites to cultivate the right mood.
Sound Sleeping - For creating custom relaxed sound mixes.
Rainy Mood - The sounds of rain. 
August Ambience - The sounds of summer nights.
Forest Mood - The sounds of the woodlands. 
Fire Crackling - An hour long recording of fire crackling. 
Soundrown - A collection of different sounds including coffee shop, waves, white noise, etc.
iSerenity - A collection including typewriters to sprinklers.
SimplyNoise - A collection specializing in color sound essentially white noise that goes in different octaves. White is highest, pink in the middle, and brown the lowest. 
NatureSoundPlayer - A collection including thunderstorms, rivers, frogs, and crickets.
Coffitivity - For those really into the sound of coffee shops also allows you to play your own music with the coffee shop loop.
Music: Sometimes there is nothing like a bit of music to loosen up those fingertips. These sites & apps are what I use to find music suitable for my writing.
8Tracks - No download required and completely ad free. Search pre-made mixes to suit your current writing mood. Writing a steamy kiss scene? Search for a “love” mix. Writing for your otp? Search your otp’s name for inspired song selections.
Fanmixes - I’ve linked to only one but tumblr is full of fanmix blogs that create playlist inspired by shows and pairings. Find specialized fanmixes with google search or role the dice with a tumblr “fanmix” tag search.
Spotify - Free with minimal ads. Make your own playlist or search for others. A database that allows you to search any song and play it on demand. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. 
Focus At Will - Lyric free music in different genres to help you focus.
Visual Stimulation: Sounds can be very stimulating but sometimes it takes a little more than that to be helpful so here are a few visual aids and ideas that can come in handy.
Watch a Movie or TV Show - Preferably in the genre you’re wanting to do work in. If you’re involved in a fandom rp revisit the original show to get ideas for the character you’re playing or your oc. If you’re rping a certain plot use a site like Tastekid to new find movies or shows similar to ones that have already inspired you. Use Netflix & Hulu to actually watch the films.
Search for Imagery - Search for inspiring photos and graphics with sites like Favim, Flickr, WeHeartIt, & the tumblr tag search engine. 
Read Work by Your Favorite Writers - Not to copy but chances are you enjoy your favorite authors because they inspire you. Use that to your advantage.
Collect Inspiration - Create a second tumblr to collect your inspiration (music, videos, photos, etc). Use the tagging system to keep everything organized and easily accessible when you need it most. For instructions click here.
Actively Working: Sitting around and hoping to find inspiration may not be your thing. Here are a few tactics I use when I have a hard time getting a reply out of my head. 
Research - Chances are there is something you could use a little more information on in order to make your roleplaying all the more interesting and multidimensional. If you can’t seem to write take some time to research for your rp. It could be the setting, character’s occupations, time era, etc. Sites like Wikipedia are excellent sources of information.
Development - Take the time to develop your character even further. Write up a list of adjetives that describe them or tie your character development into research. Find out the psychology behind your character and their motivations. Flesh out their backstory. Think about introducing minor characters (family members, friends, exs, etc) to give them more depth. 
"Method Act" - Create a tumblr or online journal as your character. Write about anything from their point of view. Reblog things they would want to reblog OR you can take personality test as your character to see what type of personality they’d have. It’s difficult but enlightening. This will help you get into your characters mind and possibly come up with a reply.
Write, Just Write - It doesn’t have to be related to the story at all. Just start writing about your day to get yourself warmed up. Look up writing plots online. Then think of writing a self-para for your character in your rp but unrelated to your current reply even just a bit of dialogue could be igniting. 
Outline - Write down what you want to happen in the scene or what needs to happen, then make that happen.
Plot - Think of what is going to happen after this scene  and write it down or what you would like to happen in the rp in general. This can help immensely, viewing the bigger picture. You can do this with your partner for more fun and inspiration. 
Other Tips: For when all else fails. 
Brew & Drink Tea -It will give you a caffeine boost and while you’re working on brewing the tea and waiting for it to be finished you can give yourself time to think.
Converse - Talk with others or talk to yourself. It may seem foreign but actual human interaction may provide you with ideas for your own character. Draw from your own life. If no one is around imagine a bit of dialogue your character would say and have a bit of a conversation as them. Sounds crazy but if no one is around to see you won’t look it. 
Converse Part II - Talk to your partner about your block. Ask them if they have any ideas or suggestions on what your character should do chances are they have some ideal response in mind themselves. Now would be the time to ask for advice. :)
Turn off the TV - If you’re finally sitting down to write get rid of visual noise.
Get Out - Take a trip to the gas station for a pack of gum, walk to the mail box, go to the bookstore, etc. Get out of the house and let your commuting give you inspiration and time to think.
Dance - At times your brain just needs a rush of physical energy to wake it up. Take a minute or two put on your favorite song and dance. It will put you in a better mood and help blank your mind to get creative.
The worst thing you can do when you hit a wall is get lazy and stop thinking. These resources and tips have worked me out of a few tough writing spots. Hopefully they work for you!
XOXO,Kitten

I have to say this is completely legit - someone tried to steal her handbag and she simply went “Fuck this- *suplex*”

My hero

someone teach me this pweeze-ooc

Ok Ladies, here’s the info on this move.
We are blessed with a low center of gravity. This means that when we get ahold of someone and tip over backward like that, it’s easy peasy for us to do. Especially on a guy. Think of it like a fulcum and lever: they’re the lever, we’re the fulcrum, and because their center of gravity is up in their chest, instead of in their pelvis, when we get down low and lean back, whupsy there they tip right over.
Now, here’s the real deal on that particular move. Check out how this gif end, with the guy’s head on the floor like that? How his torso seems straight up and down, his head and neck on the floor, all his body weight and the momentum of having been tossed over her shoulder?
Yeah, he’s pretty messed up from that. In the really real world, if you do that move correctly, toss your whole body into it, seriously oomph it up and give that mugger a throw, you can snap his neck.
All that said, here’s how you do it!
This is something you do fast, ladies. Move quickly and with assurance, and don’t worry about whether you’re strong enough to do it or not: you are. This is about physics, not muscle.
Get low, bend your knees and hips. Our strength is largly concentrated in our lower bodies, and when we put our knees and thighs into a move, we bring some of the largest muscles in the human body to bear. You’d be surprised what you can move with your legs.
When she got low on him, her right arm was around his waist, her shoulder roughly at or under his ass, her left arm wrapped around his left leg. Feet shoulder width apart for a nice stable base, big deep breath in, and lift just a bit while falling backwards. It doesn’t take much strength but it will really mess with the dude’s day. Landing on your head will at the very very least knock you silly for a minute.
Interestingly, we can use these same basic principles to ruin a guy’s day if he’s the one to grab us! Imagine, if you will, mugger dude runs up behind you and bear hugs you in preparation for dragging you into the alley. Scary, right? Yep.
If he lifts you too fast, and you find your feet off the ground, kick him in the shins, scrape your shoes down his legs, aim for the knees and his feet. Toss your head back and head butt him. Bite him. Squirm. Do what it takes to get your feet back on the ground.
Feet on the ground, grab his arms and hold on to them. Don’t let him get away, because this move, ladies, will put him down and out, and if he moves away he may go for a distance weapon, or start using his fists. Hold onto his arms and keep him in close.
Again, feet shoulder width apart. Use your booty and hips now, like you’re trying to hit his not-so-manly bits with your ass, get your hips back, bend your knees and flex your hips. If he’s shortish, you should at this point have picked him up and be balancing him on your back. If he’s tall, you’re now in position to put a crimp in his style in a big way.
Tuck your head to your chest and roll forward, just like you did when you were a kid. Flip yourself forward and let gravity do the rest. You will have your head tucked down, aiming to land on the upper back of one shoulder; he won’t. This means he’ll land on his face, with the full force of his own body weight behind it as well as any momentum you’ve built up. You may very well land on top of him too.
From here, get up, run like hell towards a light source while yelling “help, fire, call 911 (or whatever emergency services number exists in your country)”
Remember, ladies, with just a little understanding of comparative anatomy and physics, you too can put a man on the ground and seriously mess up his day. But then, that’s what he was planning to do to you, so fair’s fair.

I could swear there are many posts that talk about this but oh well… Anywho…

I really felt the need to discuss this because I have felt like this before. And I know it’s difficult to talk about it out of the fear of being called selfish or “crying for attention”.

I completely disagree. It’s not a matter of acting selfish. Again it’s another self-esteem issue. Let’s face it, low self-esteem is difficult to overcome, despite what some people think.

But it can be helped. We all want to be funny, smart, clever, pretty, talented, and all that jazz. We can be those! It’s totally possible.

Get started now! Learn to laugh and develop your own sense of humor. Be up to date with current events. Dress properly and care about your appearance.

But mind you I never said it was easy or a quick-fix. Everything takes time. I know it’s difficult in this time where we want things instantly. Believe me, I am the most impatient individual. But we just have to wait and keep working.

And popularity should not be your main concern. Yes as an artist we want some recognition, but becoming popular for the sake of being popular is a negative behavior to have.

Go at your own pace. Take it step by step to be become a better individual and a better artist. Make yourself happy and learn to love yourself.

I’m working on that too. In fact I made this advise for myself as well. Everything will get be better. Don’t worry C:

Guys, the number of messages I get on a regular basis about how a good number of you feel discouraged by my writing (and other traits and talents) and say you’ll “never be as good as [me]” is astounding, so really. Look at this carefully if it’s relevant to you! And remember that the pieces of me you see on my blog are just very tiny bits of my life that I
choose to let you see. I’m only rad online. Remember to not compare yourselves to others, and don’t let anyone compare you to anyone else. (but to the dozens of other messages I get about how my writing inspires you guys to write your own stuff, I say: hella hella.)
