So glad to hear meds are working out for you, that’s fantastic. The journey of life is always interesting, but sometimes I think just knowing someone *hears* you like she does is super important.
I still won’t comment on your boobs because family and awkward. You can’t escape headrubs though. So ha.
Dear internet. I have invented a new word.
Basically when something happens that isn’t quite strong enough to trigger you but there’s still a gut level response, just on a much smaller scale. If trigger = emotional punch to the gut, twip = emotional flick to the nose.
Go forth and use.
If I look up “carrot” in the dictionary, most people will acknowledge I do not know all there is to know about carrots and if I truly want to understand carrots, I should probably pick up a horticultural text book. We know that legal and medical terms are going to be, at best, simplistically represented and know we need to find a lawyer or a doctor if we want to know more. Anyone deciding to base their argument on, say, a philosophical concept or term using the dictionary is going to be laughed at at best, or automatically lose whatever argument they’re trying to make at least.
Yet the minute we move into a social justice framework, the ultimate authority changes. We don’t need lived experience, we don’t need experts who have examined centuries of social disparities and discrimination, we don’t need societal context. We don’t need sociology or history – no, we have THE DICTIONARY! That ultimate tome of oracular insight, the last word on any debate!
It’s patently ridiculous and you can see that by applying it to any other field of knowledge. But the privileged will continually trot out simplistic, twitter-style dictionary definitions as if they are the last word and the ultimate authority. No-one would drag out the dictionary to debate science with a scientist. But they’re more than willing to trot out a dictionary definition of racism over any sociological analysis. A dictionary is not the ultimate authority - they’re a rough guide for you to discover the simple meaning of words you’ve never heard before – not an ultimate definition of what the word means and all its contexts.

if you get a boyfriend does that mean you have to spend less time on the internet because idk if im prepared for that
#fics before dicks
Mine tries to get me out of the house???? and then complains that I’m Tumblring on my phone????????? and also tries to convince me not to order pizza i dunno relationships are basically a huge pain
See, this is why I ended up sleeping with, dating, gaining a kid and then eventually marrying my RP partner. Not quite ten years later and she totally gets me and we order pizza and spend inordinate amounts of time online.
When we’re not having hot dyke sex. Just sayin’.
Point being, there is hope out there for both dick and fic! Even if one ends up silicone.
I’m starting to have the same reaction to the phrase ‘it’s a magical place’ as I do to ‘two by two, hands of blue’.
you know what i always thought was kinda neat
when gay couples raise children and you have to pick something other than dad or mom for the kid to call you
because obviously dad and dad or mom and mom is rly confusing for all parties
can i make my future kids call me something really cool and my wife can be “mom”
can i be like megatron
"mommy’s busy go ask megatron"
"megatron said to ask you"
Eh, honestly, it’s not really all that confusing. My wife and I are both answer to ‘mom’, although her more than me. If the wrong one answers she just rolls her eyes and asks for the other mom. Plus there is the convenient usual address of ‘moms’ to get all the attention.
Randomly I also do answer to Megatron.
