I was mucking around with Audacity, listening to songs in reverse. For the fun of it, I put on everyone’s favorite song, Blurred Lines. And shockingly, I heard something I had never expected to hear. Robin Thicke was fooling us this whole time. He wasn’t trying to be misogynistic, he wanted us to listen closer to the song and understand that he in fact does believe his lady partner needs to be treated with the utmost respect.
You might find it VERY hard to believe, but I implore you to listen very closely (with headphones if you can, because it can be hard to hear). The message I’m talking about comes in around the 30 second mark.
After the 30sec mark I just kind of stared at my wall for the rest of the song trying to accept what I just heard.

"I’m Just Your Problem" - 8bit version
I present to you, Olivia Wilde in suspenders.
Just invest in some masking tape or post it notes or something.
You get the same ‘Aha! A stranger will see this and be inspired!’ possibility, and it will take a cleaning person approximately .005 seconds to peel it off when it’s their job to do so.
Also, maybe someone who really needs it will take the note with them and put in in their pocket to look at again and again.
How is that not a million times better than ruining a cleaning person’s day with difficult-to-remove graffiti?
This is the only Jelsa I’m interested in
CONFESSION: I consider Shale one of my all time favorites and from the moment I learned she was originally a Dwarf female…I ALWAYS used the pronouns “she” and “her”. I never had an issue referring to her as a female.
Except Shale chooses to refer to itself (and everyone else) as genderless, and makes fun of the idea that “female” even matters anymore as a label for a creature that doesn’t have sexual organs, isn’t a dwarf anymore, and is so ancient that it doesn’t even remember its own name. Genderless is an identity too. I prefer to respect Shale’s current choice, and refer to it as “it”.
^ This. Whether you think it’s appropriate or “right” or not, Shale retains the ability to identify itself, and it identifies as “golem”, not “female dwarf”.
This “she was originally a dwarf female so I call her ‘she’” argument really sounds like shit cishets say (“well you were born a female so I’m gonna keep calling you ‘she’”), so you might want to watch it, Confessor.
This really does come down to rejecting a person’s own comfort and preferences for what you know about their past, which is really quite a disquieting thought to linger on right now.
