Gryffindor: I’m a fucking hero.
Slytherin: I’m fucking badass.
Ravenclaw: I’m smart as fuck.
Hufflepuff: My dorm is near the kitchen.
Just as a reminder.
"Beastman" is a Garlean-coined slur to refer to members of the beast tribes that was spread to Eorzea in their pre-Calamity propaganda campaigns. In-universe, it is an insulting and degrading way to refer to any of the non-playable races, and while it is used by many hateful or ignorant NPCs, those with a greater degree of social awareness choose not to use it. Keep this in mind when writing your character- whether they are aware of the origins of the term and whether or not this impacts their usage of it.
For example, an Ul’dahn aware of the term’s origins might still use it because they hate the beast tribes. A Gridanian might use it to refer to the Ixal but not the Sylphs, due to differing opinions on the tribes. A Limsan might use it, even though they tolerate or like members of the beast tribes, because they are unaware of the connotations or origins. An Ala Mhigan refugee might refuse to use it, even though they hate the Amalj’aa or Ixal, because of it being spread by Garleans. A well-informed Sharlayan scholar might not use it at all, out of respect for the beast tribes and distaste for Garlemald.
Just something to keep in mind when writing, since I’m aware not everyone has this in mind all the time!
just bc someone has low self esteem or has depression doesnt mean theyre not fucking disgusting and manipulative and i keep having to learn this lesson over and over
Anonymous said: if a cashier gives me more change than I need I don't say anything. One time I went to walmart and paid with $100 bill for like a $50 purchase and the cashier gave me $75 back. To me it's their job and the corporations job to make sure they can give the right change back. That's probably really fucked up to you but eh.
No, but that’s actually a really fucking shitty thing to do to a cashier. Did you know that we can be fired if our drawers are short more than a certain amount? Beyond that, there are people who have legitimate issues with numbers and math (I have dyscalculia, for instance), and you’re basically being an ableist fuckwit by doing this to them. What if their register was down and they were having to do every transaction by hand? Have you ever had to keep track of that many numbers when numbers confuse you to no end? It’s fucking difficult, even when the registers aren’t crashing and we don’t have to do shit manually. I mean, fuck, even with a functioning register, I mix up numbers and have trouble with them.
So in short, fuck you for thinking that it’s okay to risk someone’s job because you can’t be assed to let someone know that you were overchanged. And by the way, that’s still theft, so congrats on being both an ableist AND a thieving douchetwat.
SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE FUCKING HUMAN AND THEY MAKE A MISTAKE! DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE! And also have dyscalculia, and working register is a pain in the ass. For real.
Also, sometimes bills stick together and it feels like one bill.

Anonymous said: Do you guys have an asexual mod? I get kinda mad when people who are asexual act like they are oppressed. I mean they would be if they were homo/biromantic and wanted to marry the same sex, but it's not because of their asexuality. It's not like anyone says "oh you don't like sex? Haha well you're fired."
We don’t have an asexual mod, no :P Although I can tell you from personal experience that someone I’m very close to is asexual and her mother was completely intolerant of it.

This is actually a piece of shit ask because asexuality is a sexual minority and, while we might not be “oppressed” because of it, we’re looked at as complete jokes, not taken seriously, and some people are actually raped and forced to have sex with people because they think it will “cure them” of their sexuality. I have had people tell me that I will “meet the right person someday,” “you’re acting delusional - sex is a biological requirement!,” “you’re not asexual because you CAN reproduce normally - only asexual things can reproduce asexually,” and my personal favorite: “You’re not a plant, so you can’t be asexual.”
Asexuality might not be an oppressive sexuality in your eyes, but we all have feelings too. It’s important to know that asexual people DO get beat up, raped, hurt, laughed at, and not taken seriously because of their sexualities, as well as their romantic preferences in some cases. Many people don’t let us into LGBT+ safe spaces because we’re “not queer enough” (I’ve actually had someone tell me this before), and on top of that, people still think the A in LGBTQIA should stand for “ally/allies” only.
If that’s still not enough for me to act like I’m not taken seriously because I’m asexual, then please come to our ask box and tell me how you really feel, because I probably won’t care but at least I’ll know that one more person in the world who thinks that sexuality minorities deserve to be treated poorly because it’s “not really oppression.”
Oh, so the fact that my dad thinks that I’m just a lesbian since I’m a biromantic asexual is just a no big deal to you anon-bro? Or how about the poor Asexual folk who are victims to ‘corrective rape’? The mentality that ‘Asexuality is just an excuse since you can’t get a date’ that I see far to often. Or hell, all of those constant “You reproduce by budding?” jokes I constantly get when I try to out myself to someone.
We are ignored. We are mocked. We are forgotten far to often.
Anon, you should do some research.
friends: oh no! it’s raining, we can’t go out! this sucks!!
This is such a disturbing picture
I’m gonna cosplay it
