Two art games Splickedy and I sometimes play when we’re very very bored.  

There are all sorts of different twists you can do with these—in the first one, you can pick characters by spinning a pencil, drawing pieces of paper from a cup, etc.  But so far dice have yielded the best results.  And you can make names by making anagrams out of words that describe them, etc. etc.  

Reblogs this from a reblog note that turned up on my dash because THESE ARE STILL HELLA FUN and I recommend them to everyone!

I accept Usagi/Mamoru but Mamoru seems older personality wise (like she’s 14/15 and he seems like he’s 18-19) and I can’t help wondering why would he be interested in her? C’mon, he was pretty much a 10 in everything, and I’m supposed to believe he falls for this average klutz? But I guess it’s the typical wish fulfilling fantasy for females. Same like Twilight.

I could defend Usagi here, but I’m not going to, because with all the male wish fulfilment fantasies out there (some of them completely indefensible, but accepted nonetheless; see every “harem” anime in existence), I think that a few female wish fulfillment fantasies, even a few unexplainable ones, should be perfectly fine.

seriously. How many fucking pairings are there where the where the nerdy ugly guy ends up with the impossibly hot perfect girl because she sees his ~true self~
There’s even one IN THE 90s SAILOR MOON ANIME!!!! That’s what Naru x Umino basically was!!!!
How many do you see of a clumsy, average girl ending up with a guy who is super hot, super smart and super rich in fiction?seriously, not a lot. That’s why stuff like Twilight even became popular! Because it’s rare! And Sailor Moon doesn’t have the constant misogynist underpinnings that Twilight does, so it’s a total win!If Peter Parker can get 12 impossibly hot girls to notice his ~true self~ i think Usagi can have O N E guy and also hot girls  notice hers.
This ~typical wish fufillment fantasy for females~ is actually super valuable in counteracting the endless and often far more problematic schlock women have to slog in male-centered fiction every day.Oh and Mamoru is also a loser just as much as Usagi is, just like…in different departments (socially, self-esteem wise etc) and she is also an amazing loving person and fab superhero so there’s that?

After she came up to me and said, “I’ve been with my partner for 20 years… We would never get married because he’s on social security income, and because my daughter is disabled I have secondary income from the state to support my daughter. If I got married, both my benefits and his benefits would be reduced because we would become a double income family.”

She was explaining that marriage doesn’t work for poor people, and that it doesn’t work for disabled people. Having really simple examples like hers are important.

What if the LGBTQ movement fought for prison abolition rather than same-sex marriage? (via disabilityhistory)

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
