people who underestimate my undieing love for Nanoha Takemachi underestimate me 

i will defend the queen bee of mahou shoujos till i die y’all think she’s something minor when references to her are made everywhere on the web but since i’ts been filtered down cuz of the language barrier y’all left not knowing shit

and that’s disappointing…

like a lot of people are disappointed cuz it isn’t just strictly sparkles and pink, instead you have a variety of strong powerful girls and young women each who has their own personal fight style and ethics

like guys the protagonist is in lesbians with her comrade-in-arms Fate (when i die bury me in Nanoha/Fate doujinshi) and it’s canon, there’s a time skip in season 3 where they are adults and they adopt a kid together and guess what? she acknowledges them both as her mamas

image

image

image

image

The show has a lot of focus on family too, Nanoha struggles with keeping her mahou shoujo career a secret from her ever preoccupied family, Fate’s mother is an emotional and physical abuser, and the entirety of season 2 focuses on found family. 

image

& oh yeah the first two seasons have been turned into movies and they are bluray masterpieces

image

Nanoha herself is also a hero we can all aspire to be, she never gives up nor does she ever regret or throw a tantrum for having stumbled into the magical girl lifestyle by accident, she takes her new career on and nurtures a skill and goes on to dedicate her life to helping others through her skills.

and there are also magical BOYS!!!

Three simple rules in life. 1. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place. — (via wild-spirit)

No, sorry, I still don’t believe demisexuality is real. I seriously doubt anyone can sell me on it.

And here’s where I lose followers:

Demisexualty isn’t real but not for the reasons you might be thinking.

Sexuality poses a very clearly defined question: Who do you feel sexual attraction to?

Heterosexual: Attracted to the opposite sex.
Homosexual: Attracted to the same sex.
Bisexual: Attracted to the same and opposite sex.
Pansexual: Attracted to all sexes.
Asexual: Experiences no sexual attraction.

The problem with Demisexuality is that it answers a completely different question: How do you feel sexual attraction?

A self-proclaimed demisexual who only ever experiences sexual attraction to members of the opposite sex (after the obligatory “strong emotional connection”) is still heterosexual.
A self-proclaim demisexual who only ever experiences sexual attraction to members of the same sex would still be homosexual.
And so on and so on.

And here’s the kicker: A not-small number of people in the world operate this way.

So even if this is truly and really how these people experience sexual attraction, and I’d be inclined to say it is, the label itself still doesn’t belong under the banner of “sexuality” for the aforementioned reasons.

Am I saying that demisexuality isn’t a thing? No.
Am I saying that it shouldn’t be classified as a sexuality? Yes.

A different word might suite these people better, rather than take on “sexuality” which already has a pretty strict definition.

Why Is It Hard to Make Friends Over 30?

by Alex Williams

It was like one of those magical blind-date scenes out of a Hollywood rom-com, without the “rom.” I met Brian, a New York screenwriter, a few years ago through work, which led to dinner with our wives and friend chemistry that was instant and obvious.

We liked the same songs off Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde,” the same lines from “Chinatown.” By the time the green curry shrimp had arrived, we were finishing each other’s sentences. Our wives were forced to cut in: “Hey, guys, want to come up for air?”

As Brian and his wife wandered off toward the No. 2 train afterward, it crossed my mind that he was the kind of guy who might have ended up a groomsman at my wedding if we had met in college.

That was four years ago. We’ve seen each other four times since. We are “friends,” but not quite friends. We keep trying to get over the hump, but life gets in the way.

Our story is not unusual. In your 30s and 40s, plenty of new people enter your life, through work, children’s play dates and, of course, Facebook. But actual close friends — the kind you make in college, the kind you call in a crisis — those are in shorter supply.

As people approach midlife, the days of youthful exploration, when life felt like one big blind date, are fading. Schedules compress, priorities change and people often become pickier in what they want in their friends.

No matter how many friends you make, a sense of fatalism can creep in: the period for making B.F.F.’s, the way you did in your teens or early 20s, is pretty much over. It’s time to resign yourself to situational friends: K.O.F.’s (kind of friends) — for now.

But often, people realize how much they have neglected to restock their pool of friends only when they encounter a big life event, like a move, say, or a divorce.

That thought struck Lisa Degliantoni, an educational fund-raising executive in Chicago, a few months ago when she was planning her 39th birthday party. After a move from New York to Evanston, Ill., she realized that she had 857 Facebook friends and 509 Twitter followers, but still did not know if she could fill her party’s invitation list. “I did an inventory of the phases of my life where I’ve managed to make the most friends, and it was definitely high school and my first job,” she said.

After a divorce in his 40s, Robert Glover, a psychotherapist in Bellevue, Wash., realized that his roster of friends had quietly atrophied for years as he focused on career and family. “All of a sudden, with your wife out of the picture, you realize you’re lonely,” said Dr. Glover, now 56. “I’d go to salsa lessons. Instead of trying to pick up the women, I’d introduce myself to the men: ‘Hey, let’s go get a drink.’ ”

In studies of peer groups, Laura L. Carstensen, a psychology professor who is the director of the Stanford Center on Longevity in California, observed that people tended to interact with fewer people as they moved toward midlife, but that they grew closer to the friends they already had.

Basically, she suggests, this is because people have an internal alarm clock that goes off at big life events, like turning 30. It reminds them that time horizons are shrinking, so it is a point to pull back on exploration and concentrate on the here and now. “You tend to focus on what is most emotionally important to you,” she said, “so you’re not interested in going to that cocktail party, you’re interested in spending time with your kids.”

As external conditions change, it becomes tougher to meet the three conditions that sociologists since the 1950s have considered crucial to making close friends: proximity; repeated, unplanned interactions; and a setting that encourages people to let their guard down and confide in each other, said Rebecca G. Adams, a professor of sociology and gerontology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This is why so many people meet their lifelong friends in college, she added…

Speaking of gendered marketing and gender roles, this sight at a local Wallgreens caught my attention.
Most NERF guns come in relatively gender-neutral colors: yellow, grey, black, orange, to name the colors of the other NERF guns in the same aisle.
And here we have the first time I’ve ever seen what was seen and originally marketed as a “boy’s toy” get a makeover via gender-segmentation to try to appeal to girls.
There is a huge discussion to be had here with lots of questions to go over. I’ll come back to those later but for right now, share in my amazement and wonder that these products are out there, they exist, and you can buy them today.

PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.

He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you. — Bob Marley (via siruth)

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
