i need some of you to realize that call out culture, by design, rewards people who make the most outrageous & aggressive accusations, without regards to truth or context. it encourages people to misconstrue, to erase context, to outright lie. it feeds the instinct to attack, with or without cause. 
and that naturally enables certain types of people (terfs, exclusionists, bigots) who already have a vitriolic bandwagon behind them, to target & harass minority bloggers whose inclusive platforms they do not like to see becoming popular.
this has happened time and again, it has driven good people off this site, it is traumatic and unhealthy to everyone involved. purity culture creates an atmosphere of fear & paranoia, i am begging you to reexamine this attitude of mob violence in online spaces
#not a shitpost#serious post#harassment tw#seriously ya'll......this happens time and again and i'm getting fucking sick of it#do you remember i-am-a-fish? do you remember when you let ace & trans exclusionists target & harass i-am-a-fish off this site?#i see the same tactics being used time and again on different ace & trans & nb & gnc bloggers#and it WORKS! it works every time! people on this site fall for it every time and i am SICK of it#would you just. look at people's blogs and judge them on their recent and overall actions.#if people have been personally hurt by them then yes listen to victims#but don't take screenshots of posts from 2 years ago as the sacred truth#i see bloggers apologizing again and again for the same things and then realize 'oh shit they don't *want* an apology'#'these people just want more shit to throw at me. an apology is never going to be enough'#and also....let people grow? i'm proud of how quickly the standards of what is appropriate and respectful are changing & progressing#we are all constantly learning new things about what is and is not appropriate to say. and that's good!!#but the result is that what we considered appropriate a year or 2 ago we now know probably shouldn't be#so like. look at people's recent posts if you want to know their recent attitudes.#don't go attacking people for stuff they said years ago unless you have reason to believe they still believe & are perpetuating it#especially when so many people on this site are goddam teenagers holy shit#i honestly wonder if that is the reason so many people in online spaces are unwilling to admit they were wrong or change their opinions#bc we've erased the concept that you're allowed to be wrong and grow and update your opinion#so if you admit you are wrong NOW you're opening yourself up to be attacked years down the line#i've had to learn as a popular blog when to clapback and when to just...let it slide#often it's better to tell people off in private or block them. but callout culture is encouraging us to just.#automatically hit back fullthrottle in a way that puts our target at risk for public harassment#so i see a lot of crappy but lowkey comments getting people dunked into shitstorms and it's just....#a lot of time and energy spent harassing people who...aren't really the people you should be concerned about?#and who could probably learn & grow if given the right incentive?#idk i'm seeing a lot of stick and very little carrot.#and a lot of black-and-white thinking that leads to more violence than i'm comfortable having in an online community

in 2011 two fishermen from Kiribati went adrift for 33 days before landing in the Marshall Islands. They then found out that their thought to be dead uncle, who went missing 25 years earlier after also going adrift, had landed in the Marshall Islands as well and married there (x)

A Fishing Guide for Beginners
Are you new to fishing? Unaware of where to purchase your fishing gear, with no experience or resources to get started with the activity? Well, worry no more as it is simpler than it looks. 
Fishing in an entirely exciting experience. First, you need to identify the fish types available and the regulations for catching, keeping and releasing fish in your preferred area. 
youtube
How to Get Started
To simplify the activity, here are the basics for your first time fishing adventure. 
Some of the gear you will need include:
A fishing pole (preferably a suitable style for the fishing type you will be doing),
Spinning rods and reels,
A fishing line, hooks (however, remember that the larger the fish, the longer the hook needed),
Fishing lures (it is recommended to have some of these even if you will be using live baits),
Bobbers or sinkers and a tackle box with some ice for storage. 
You also need to grasp a few of the fishing terms like:
Saltwater fishing grounds: these are areas with high salinity content such as oceans.
Freshwaters: these include all freshwater sources such as rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds.
Pound Test: the strength of your fishing line. However, for the first time experience, it is recommended to hire a professional to guide you in the actual encounter as well as to show you some of the best local fishing spots.
Learn to Fish
1. How to fish with a bait
Tackle: Lead weights are the best for plunking the baits. Despite, you should change them depending on the current of the environment. Anglers can be used together with a swivel to prevent the sinkers from drowning. Besides, you can use plastic beads between the swivel and the weight from sliding or use two appropriate casters and rig the sliding sinkers.
Bait: Worms and chicken liver are the most commonly used fishing baits. Nonetheless, it is essential to purchase fresh baits and keep them cold to prevent them from softening and slipping off the hooks. Some other commonly used baits include; a fried chicken skin, grasshoppers, fish entrails, shrimps, salmon eggs, and crayfish tails.
2. Fishing methods
Plunking: It is the most common method; however, you are required to hold your bait in a position contrary to the direction of the current. A suitable amount of weight is ideal for this approach. Or rather, allow a minimum weight for the bait to move along with the flow.
Back bouncing: This is done by freeing the reel or spool to move with the current. Back bouncing is efficient in deeper water fishing.
Drift-fishing: For this method, you should estimate the appropriate depth, then start reeling. It is relatively easier than the other ways depending on the current's strength.
3. Fishing from a boat
For this method, you need denser jig heads in deep water fishing as compared to the coastal fisheries.
Conclusion
Finally, do not speculate on problems; instead, use the above simple tips for your first time fishing adventure, and it will be memorable. Remember, fishing is easy so long as you’re enjoying the activity; therefore, ensure to bring a friend with you or a family member to keep you company while you learn.

sometimes when i watch a zombiecleo video and watch her make all her armor stands with the cod heads. look i know that it’s because they’re the most similar to people heads. but sometimes i wonder if hermitcraft’s civilian population is mostly made up of cod-people. just. the average citizen is a fish person. that’s normal in hermitcraft. there are the hermits which are all manner of things but everyone else is a fish
i just think it would be funnier like that,

I made a gold-flecked greenbean merman, pls love him. Hes Babey. His stand-in nickname Sweetpea or Greenbean or smth bc i dont have a name for him
He deserves all the hugs and kisses. He befriends fishes and saves turtles and gets caught in kind sailors nets way too often, someone help this idiot before enough sailors catch and release him enough to create the legend of the Scaled Emerald and he ends up getting lured into a pirates trap jggutdy
I ended up rambling out a whole story for him in my tags including his crush on a cute himbo sailor and his queerplatonic relationship with an aroace pirate captain so enjoy that??

I've learned a lot from tumblr, and I've enjoyed much of the time I spend here. but sometimes I wonder where I would be mentally and emotionally if I hadn't gone through the harassment I experienced (and still experience) after getting big so quickly.
I won't pretend it wasn't the source of new trauma, and that it didn't seriously affect me, the way those sorts of targeted harassment campaigns have seriously affected the mental health of many bloggers (with any size audience) who have been hounded and threatened off this site. I feel that tumblr (surprising to all of us, I'm sure) is ahead of most other social media sites in a number of ways. But we still have a long ways to go, and I would guess that "call out" and purity culture is one of the most immediate and severe threats to our health as a community, and as individuals.
I am begging all of us to do BETTER. We owe each other better.
#I'll talk some more about it one day I'm sure#but not today. i am tired.#not a shitpost#serious post#harassment tw#I'm still. I'm still so fucking mad about what you guys allowed to happen to i-am-a-fish#i mean i went through hell experiencing harassment as an adult on this site#but many of you stood by--or even PARTICIPATED--in doing that to a goddamn teenager???#to a young person who was just trying to be responsible and kind and positive to a large and demanding following#i am just. i am so disappointed and disheartened in all of us right now. for so many reasons#we need to do better. we OWE EACH OTHER better.#one thing i will say#i find that i am harder and more wary as a person now#and that concerns me because i have been through abuse before and i have responded by becoming hard and wary#i was hard and wary and wounded for many of my developmental years#but as i recovered i learned to leave that behind#i learned to be warmer and kinder and happier#and to encourage others to be a little more that way too#but then all the discourse happened and it was...it was DIFFERENT than all those times before i had been hurt by my parents and peers#it was different and somehow worse. because i had finally against all expectation found a community where i was loved and valued#after 20 years I had finally started to believe maybe there WASN'T something fundamentally wrong with me#maybe there were good things in me. and people in the world who could see and care about them#it was so bizarre but after all those years. all those years of isolation and ostracization and constant shame and embarassment#somehow against the odds i had ended up finding a place i could belong#it was like a fairytale. i could scarcely believe it even as i reveled in it#and then overnight i had 200 messages in my inbox telling me i was the most vile person in existence#and that they would rejoice when I finally killed myself#can you imagine the whiplash#can you imagine the fear#can you imagine the goddamn confusion and terror

Do you ever think about that freaky little fish dude that evolved to have arm fins that allowed it to avoid predators in the ocean by literally removing itself from the situation and going to shallow water and/or land and that’s the thing all land animals are related to because I sure do

Fred+ his good parents.
since @metallicult made fred + bad dads, it was my HOLY DUTY to make fred and the parents that actually give a shit.
Plus the introduction of Harry, the spider, Fred's little plushy friend. They make nets together.
