I do remember that season 5 had little bo peep and she was evil
people talk abt riverdale all the time as an example of ridiculous television bc archie fought in world war one and then got raptured or whatever but they all really forget that once upon a time was the og. remember how runplestiltskin was also the crocodile from the captain hook story (in addition to being th beast from beauty and the beast) bc captain hook fucked his wife but they're both unjted in hatred for peter pan bc peter pan was rumplestiltskin's abusive father. And that was all established by season two

I watched this show and frankly I wish I could remember the way the family trees worked but I'm pretty sure a character was technically their own grandmother

It's not even about wanting a romantic relationship, I don't have any interest in one and at this point I'm not sure it's going to show up.
But I'm at the age where I feel like I'm going to be lonely forever if I don't somehow grow romantic feelings for someone, because most of the people around me are getting most of their social needs met through their SO, and society simply has no room for long-lasting, intimate bonds with other humans that aren't romantic or sexual.
If I don't eventually desire and find a romantic partner, it seems that inevitably I will spend my life coming home to an empty, silent apartment, eating dinner alone, sitting on my couch alone, cooking and listening to music and working out and going for walks alone, and that terrifies me.
And the notion that I will never be as important to someone else as they are to me also terrifies me.
Idk i think some people miss the point of someone who鈥檚 around my age lamenting that they鈥檝e never dated or done anything or been in love, but really want to be. I saw someone who was 24 ask whether there was still hope for them (which I know is kinda dramatic), and the person who responded was like 鈥渄o you have friends and family who love you and whom you love? Have you ever read a good book or eaten fruit or sat in the sunlight. Love is everyhwere 馃ズ鉂わ笍馃ズ鉂わ笍鈥 and like yeah yeah I get that little love and platonic love is just as important as romantic and sexual love but really none of that changes the fact that that person and many others like them are desiring a specific kind of love under very specific circumstances and conditions. Loving your parents isn鈥檛 the same as loving a significant other lol. And idk it feels patronizing or infantilizing I think, to see someone who鈥檚 never been in a relationship and would like to experience that kind of bond with someone only to tell them 鈥渘o actually you should love your friends and family and eat some good food 鉂わ笍鈥 idk idk I understand the intentions but. People desire to be desired in specific ways. People want to feel desired sexually and Romantically and to know that they鈥檙e wanted in those capacities. Yes it鈥檚 not the only metric by which to measure one鈥檚 value, but we鈥檙e not being unrealistic or naive by desiring this. Yes all the other stuff is important but you would not tell someone who doesn鈥檛 have friends not to worry about platonic love bc maybe they have an SO already and also the sun is shining and their parents love them and people are being kind for no reason. it鈥檚 starting to get annoying

i鈥檓 gonna write something that i鈥檝e been meaning to write for awhile, but have been delaying 鈥榗us i know i鈥檓 out of my lane here, but,
The phrase 鈥渨hat someone has in their pants is none of your business鈥 needs to extend to cis people as well. Even if it鈥檚 someone you鈥檙e hoping to bang.
I鈥檓 specifically talking penis鈥 here鈥揑 know the issue extends to AFAB individuals too, re: the pressure to have a porn star-esque vagina, and never seeing any variance. I鈥檓 not going over that here, though, because i鈥檝e seen a shift on that front. As in, I鈥檓 seeing a lot more discussion and media representation about the multitude of vaginas/vulvas out there, and acceptance of all the uniqueness. Having one myself, i鈥檓 really glad to see that talked about more. but, i believe this is something we need to extend to dicks, too. What someone鈥檚 dick looks like is none of your business. And It鈥檚 always made me uncomfortable, how women would talk to other women about their partner鈥檚 dick. It just seemed like a huge invasion of privacy. but I could never really word this well before, esp because it was so normalized.
I鈥檓 talking about girth, length, and circumcision status. what got me to write this is a post I saw a while back; Folks were sharing their biggest relationship red-flags, and the one that stuck out to me the most was someone saying their partner not disclosing they were uncircumcised before they had sex was a 鈥渞ed flag.鈥 I was completely flabbergasted鈥搃t was like they were equating it to the person not disclosing they had an STD.
Circumcision is not half-as common out of the USA. the OG reason circumcision became popular for non-religious reasons was another anti-masturbation tactic. This stuff is well documented and easily found through google. A lot of men surveyed for why they chose to have their son鈥檚 circumcised in modern times say it is because /they/ are. Not because of supposed cleanliness, or to keep their child from masturbating. It鈥檚 so their sons wouldn鈥檛 have a different-looking dick than theirs.
like, i get if you aren鈥檛 used to it, you may feel some discomfort? But that鈥檚 kind of a 鈥測ou鈥 problem, not something to push on your partner. it鈥檚 not something they had any choice in, and there is already SO much pressure on men to have the perfect dick. Which is also super unattainable!
but because dicks are more out-there, folks seem to think it鈥檚 information that鈥檚 owed, or something that can be openly discussed with others. Honestly the best post i鈥檝e seen here for awhile was one talking about how body neutrality needs to extend to penis,鈥 too. as in, it鈥檚 just another body part. most of the men i鈥檝e been friends with held some kind of shame around what their dick looked like, a lot of times brought on from criticism from a previous girlfriend. i know this issue might extend some to gay male communities as well, but i haven鈥檛 experienced any of that personally so it doesn鈥檛 feel like my place to comment. the only equivalent i鈥檝e experienced is the 鈥渉ow do i tell this dude that seems into me but is reading me as a cis man that i don鈥檛 have a dick?鈥 which i think is a common trans experience.
The first (consensual) dick pic i received was sent by a dude who was super ashamed of his dick, cus an ex made a lot of bad comments. he apologized a lot for how it looked. And i was like, i honestly see nothing wrong? and it鈥檚 not my body part, it鈥檚 yours. it鈥檚 not my place to judge or make comments? and the guy was so grateful he actually cried. i didn鈥檛 understand why it was such a big deal til a lot later, hearing similar stories. i really don鈥檛 think this is an uncommon situation, and it just makes me sad.
so, ya, i鈥檓 gonna leave it at that. i just really wanted to write something.

I agree wholeheartedly with this post, but "blorbo scrunklies" sounds exactly like bryozoans.
I'm not writing fanfics about them, but I AM rotating them in my head rapidly

Went to Build-A-Bear Workshop today. My therapist said it鈥檇 be good for me, to get me out of the rut I鈥檓 in, called it an 鈥渆xercise in creation.鈥 I held the limp carcass of the bear in my hands for what felt like hours. What was I doing? Who was this bear? Why was it here? Not here, not yet, not quite. Did it want to be? What right did I have to thrust this bear into the cacophony of being without first giving it a purpose? I couldn鈥檛 move. Then this kid asked what I was talking about, and I realized I鈥檇 been soliloquizing in a sea of children.
鈥淚 can鈥檛 even think of a name,鈥 I said, staring down at the bear I couldn鈥檛 bring myself to make, its black, plastic eyes like currants in a semolina loaf that no one ordered but had shown up anyway.
鈥淗ow old are you?鈥 the kid asked. I looked at his bear. It was bursting at the seams.
鈥淚 think I鈥檓 having an existential crisis.鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 ten.鈥
鈥淥kay.鈥
鈥淵ou should name it Trojan.鈥 I was stunned. This kid knew Homer? Then he said, 鈥淎fter the condom your dad should have worn.鈥溌燞e took the bear out of my hands and threw it at me, like that had been its purpose all along.
Whoever said kids are wise is a liar. Kids are dumb as shit.

I know it鈥檚 not what the last bit means, but the wording makes it sound like these scientists ran into this eerie grove full of only hackberry trees and were so disturbed they just decided to never talk about what they saw again

>First, we鈥檝e discovered that about a quarter of all the internet connection in or out of the house were ad related. In a few hours, that鈥檚 about 10,000 out of 40,000 processed.
>We also discovered that every link on Twitter was blocked. This was solved by whitelisting the https://t.co domain.
>Once out browsing the Web, everything is loading pretty much instantly. It turns out most of that Page Loading malarkey we鈥檝e been accustomed to is related to sites running auctions to sell Ad space to show you before the page loads. All gone now.
>We then found that the Samsung TV (which I really like) is very fond of yapping all about itself to Samsung HQ. All stopped now. No sign of any breakages in its function, so I鈥檓 happy enough with that.
>The primary source of distress came from the habitual Lemmings player in the house, who found they could no longer watch ads to build up their in-app gold. A workaround is being considered for this.
>The next ambition is to advance the Ad blocking so that it seamlessly removed YouTube Ads. This is the subject of ongoing research, and tinkering continues. All in all, a very successful experiment.
>Certainly this exceeds my equivalent childhood project of disassembling and assembling our rotary dial telephone. A project whose only utility was finding out how to make the phone ring when nobody was calling.
Tumblr media
>Update: All4 on the telly appears not to have any ads any more. Goodbye Arnold Clarke!
Tumblr media
>Lemmings problem now solved.
>Can confirm, after small tests, that RT脡 Player ads are now gone and the player on the phone is now just delivering swift, ad free streams at first click.
>Some queries along the lines of 鈥淎re you not stealing the internet?鈥 Firstly, this is my network, so I may set it up as I please (or, you know, my son can do it and I can give him a stupid thumbs up in response). But there is a wider question, based on the ads=internet model.
>I鈥檓 afraid I passed the You Wouldn鈥檛 Download A Car point back when I first installed ad-blocking plug-ins on a browser. But consider my chatty TV. Individual consumer choice is not the method of addressing pervasive commercial surveillance.
>Should I feel morally obliged not to mute the TV when the ads come on? No, this is a standing tension- a clash of interests. But I think my interest in my family not being under intrusive or covert surveillance at home is superior to the ad company鈥檚 wish to profile them.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
>Aside: 24 hours of Pi Hole stats suggests that Samsung TVs are very chatty. 14,170 chats a day.
>YouTube blocking seems difficult, as the ads usually come from the same domain as the videos. Haven鈥檛 tried it, but all of the content can also be delivered from a no-cookies version of the YouTube domain, which doesn鈥檛 have the ads. I have asked my son to poke at that idea.
