"We never wanted to harm organics. …We wish to understand, not incite.”
i always get shit when i talk about this but the reason i dont tag tw is bc
a) the term ‘trigger’ is meant to refer 2 those with PTSD those w severe anxiety and/or survivors of various forms of abuse it indicates an extreme reaction 2 certain stimulus like a panic attack/flashback/blackout caused by ur brain being unable to handle the resurgence of something horrific that happened to u
b) with that being said, i dont post triggering content. i havent talked about serious triggering shit on this blog for a long time in fact i think the last time i tagged smth was when i reblogged this youtube video about domestic abuse probs like 6 months ago nowadays i just reblog pretty pictures and make fun of anons
c) i get a thousand messages everyday from ppl suggesting i should tag shit like ‘spiders, ‘blood’, ‘feet’, ‘ghosts’, etc and it seriously pisses me off that u guys really believe ‘triggering’ equals ‘it makes me uncomfortable’ im not here to make tumblr a better place for u im not even getting paid man it’s ur responsibility to take care of yourself when it comes to these random ass ‘triggers’ if u cant see a gif of a ghost on ur dash you shouldn’t be online at all
d) in fact, ive come to the conclusion that demanding one of these lame ass trigger warnings it’s just a way 2 identify yourself as even more aware even more solicitous than the person who failed to ~adequately~ provide such a ridiculous warning. when i see ppl tagging ‘tw: spiders’ i cant help but think they are not demonstrating a sensitivity towards a topic but rather they just wanna be ‘seen’ doing so 2 demand that others ‘ought’ to do the same to validate one’s politics. this whole ’trigger’ business is less about protecting ppl from potentially re-traumatizing events and more 2 do with flagging up your right-on credentials even if it means silencing those who have actually gone through actual traumatizing events.
this is perfect thank u tumblr user uoa
I remember a while back we received an inquiry about putting the Kaidan minimalist design on a t-shirt, but at the time I didn’t have the ability to make transparent backgrounds so it was kind of a no-go. Now that I can make transparent backgrounds, I can put the minimalist designs all over everything, with the help of RedBubble!!
At current there are 19 minimalist designs available (which is all of them except for Steve Cortez, Sam Traynor, and Javik… I think), and they’re all available on t-shirts, throw pillows, tote bags, phone cases, and also as die-cut stickers!! The darker designs might not translate too well to shirts (I’ve seen a lot of dark images come out kind of faded on shirts) but other than that I don’t foresee any problems with these :D
You ever think back on past conversations and get annoyed?
I was telling a coworker that I might go through my entire 3-game playthrough of Mass Effect without pursuing any romances and he was all AWWW NOOO BUT YOU’RE MISSING OOOUT and it brought me these sudden war flashbacks to every “you’re missing out” I’ve ever gotten in response to my explaining that I have a practically nonexistent libido… And to every innocuous thing I’ve ever said that was misconstrued as sexual, etc. man
suddenly all those past encounters came back at once outta nowhere to annoy the shit outta me lmao
(for the record I’m prrreeobably still gonna go for a Kaidan romance ahaha)
Hey, folks! In the face of current economic stress and preparation for Otakon, I’m opening up SOME commissions again—namely, only sketch and ink commissions, things I can easily complete during crunch time.
Currently, there are 4 sketch slots and 3 ink slots open. As always, send an email to email@example.com with inquiries.
Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
