The way to love someone is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul until you find a crack, and then gently pour your love into that crack.

Neart
Neart apparently means strength in Irish gaelic, often used as the celtic symbol for strength and I love that.
But it also sounds like a insult.
So my brain instantly went
" YOU'RE SO FUCKING NEART!!"
It sounds like someone is insulting but it's just someone aggressively complimenting you on your strength.

‌There is something tragically heroic about fighting this battle you are doomed to lose.Is this hope a kind of insanity, or is it the very definition of humanness?

If anyone deserves a raise it’s the employee from four seasons total landscaping who answered the phone and went “yup, we can set up a podium and everything” and just acted like nothing was out of the ordinary.

i HATEEEE when someone writes something meaningful and beautiful, just for a bunch of salty people to make fun of the writing and of the person by saying shit like "r/im14andthisisdeep" like !! maybe they ARE 14 and it IS that deep to them!! leave them alone. as a writer i have always been terrified of putting out my writing in the world because of gross fucking people like that who will do everything to suck the joy out of some people's lives. these are the same people who will call literally everything "cringe" thinking they get brownie points for being cooler than everyone else. and yes, i AM very offended, and i have a right to be. everyone is entitled to their own opinion but NOT when that opinion includes tearing someone else down for no fucking reason u sadistic pricks !!

I tried to find something about this to reblog and share, but I didn't see anything so I wanted to put this out there. More than 1000 authors have all signed a petition to stand in solidarity with trans rights and essentially condemning J.K. Rowling's TERF views.
This includes Stephen King (which coincides with his Twitter drama with Rowling from before), Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, and more big names in the industry.
Tumblr media
Look at those beautiful trans supportive authors!
The Google doc with the letter and a list of the authors who signed it can be found here:
Here is a link to an LA Times article:
And here is a link to the Guardian article:
I thought, given all the sincere disappointment I've heard from people who loved her books, at least this gives you an alternative source.
Trans rights are human rights!

fuck you, my child is completely fine!
your child romanticises the idea of running far away and completely changing their personality, looks & soul as a way of coping with having no control over their life & being generally dissatisfied with who they have become
