why white boys end every sentence they type with haha??
to be honest i find it weirder that black people often just dont use verbs
slang is an actual type of language that people (not just black) use. that unnecessary, uneasy creep ass laugh at the end of every thing y’all type is a defense mechanism, so if you slip up you can claim it was a joke. grow some nuts and get some conviction u lil weak bitch.
EVERYONE IS CUTE OK
The automatic criminalization of black and brown bodies
No seriously though. I’m referring to the majority of the cosplayers there that blocked the ballroom, screamed during the meetups, smeared gray everywhere, and didn’t clean up after their mess. You guys made the rest of us look horrible, even when respectfully asked to discontinue your game of spin the bottle, you guys could not stop. Fantastic! So here’s how the non-homestucks on the Sacanime page have seen it.
Now you could argue that “oh don’t pick on the Homestuck fandom, we’re nice :(((” No. You were the only ones that caused trouble during the con and the staff had given up on even trying to stop since you wouldn’t listen.
Prayers out there for the good Homestucks that were so badly represented though, I respect you guys, thanks for cleaning up the mess that the big part of the fandom left for us to pick up. Bless you all.
Here’s a prime example of the problem with the Homestuck fandom as it currently is. I speak here as someone who is entrenched so deeply in Homestuck I doubt I’ll ever be able to not call myself a fan, so trust me, I understand that there are people who don’t go around making fools of themselves in the fandom. The issue with the Homestuck fandom as a whole is that there is such a large part of the fanbase that is composed of kids who range from thirteen years old to sixteen. I have nothing against kids of that age group—hell, I was one three years ago—but a lot of them still have a very long way to go when it comes to maturity.
The thing is, most of the characters in Homestuck are assholes in one way or another. At the very least, most of them behave like assholes at one time or another. As a Homestuck, I can say that in the comic itself they are mostly very loveable assholes who tend to redeem themselves at least enough so you can shrug and not be all that bothered by their behaviors. But to someone who is younger and has yet to mature enough to understand that the following train of thought is utter dreck, i.e., people who are thirteen to sixteen years old, if you’re cosplaying someone who kind of acts like an asshole, it must be totally okay to run around acting like a total asshole because of course you’re just acting in character. And sure, wanting to be in character isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But it’s all about how far you take it.
To the younger Homestucks who somehow miraculously manage to see this post, because I won’t even begin to pretend I have all that many followers to distribute this to any kind of larger audience, it’s incredibly important that you not take the canon behaviors of characters you’re cosplaying as an excuse to act in a way that is rude, offensive, or otherwise asinine, especially at cons. Be considerate of your fellow con-goers, clean up after yourselves, and if you accidentally smear body paint on someone, apologize profusely. (Better yet, seal your body paint properly. Youtube is one hell of a site.)
Again. Repeat after me. Cosplaying as an asshole is NOT an excuse to act like one. If you can remember that, you’ll have a much more positive experience in your Homestuck cosplay anywhere you go, whether it’s at a con or not. And so will everyone else.
Giving this a Homestuck fandom boost
As a person who is in the range of the douchebagery (15), I can say for at least some of the people in my age group know better. I personally haven’t done full on troll cosplay because I understand that the makeup can get all over the place. But that is not my point.
My point is that we understand that there are fans who will do things like this. Fan’s who don’t understand that cosplaying isn’t about acting cannon all the time (isn’t a good thing unless the character is an nice person who is polite to everyone), or that if your make up gets on something then you at least TRY to clean it up. There are some good fans who do care. At the last con I went to, a good chunk of the honestucks in my age group were worried about getting makeup on other people and their costumes.
Sadly, I don’t think it was just restricted to my age group. There are many people who are jerks and don’t care out there.
My final thoughts on the matter is, that con most likely got the wrong group on a bad day. There are other kind and awesome homestucks out there that really care. All I can hope for is somethong like this not to happen again to shame the fandom name or my age group.
So we’ve covered angel feathers, right, but isn’t anybody going to speculate over whether or not some member of the Men of Letters at some point or another actually made a dragon cry?
#HEY DRAGON #YEAH YOU #YEAH HEY YOUR BREATH SMELLS #AND YOU’RE A DISAPPOINTMENT TO YOUR PARENTS #YOUR TAIL LOOKS WEIRD AND ALL THE OTHER DRAGONS LAUGH AT YOU BEHIND YOUR BACK #YOUR AUNT IRMA WAS RIGHT #YOU’LL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING #AND WHEN YOUR LAST GIRLFRIEND LEFT YOU SAYING IT’S NOT YOU IT’S HER #SHE WAS LYING #SHE JUST RESENTED YOUR CLINGINESS AND WANTED TO FIND SOMEONE WHO WAS LESS OF A FLAKE #oh good i think it’s starting to weep hey bob get the jar #SPN #MEN OF LETTERS (via siterlas)

Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH
what kind of math do trees do
If you want to help secure the rights of women all over the world go here.
If you want to help people from north korea go here.
If you want to help stop child labor go here.
If you want to help people escape from their current situation go here.
If you want to help refugees reunite with their families go here.
If you want to permanently help the people who are still living in inhumane conditions all over the globe, that grow up experiencing war, violence and discrimination, be political! Go vote, write articles, educate every single person you meet, never shut your mouth, make people aware of the fact that we are still far away from global equality, freedom and peace.

If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he’ll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.
Please spread this around because someone who doesn’t know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!
when i say i hate school it doesn’t mean i hate education and knowledge. it means that i hate selfish and ignorant people there. it means that i hate stress and high expectations. it means that i hate being treated like a shit. it fucking means that i hate feeling like a failure all the time.
