I'm Emily. I like stuff, like Supernatural and Sherlock. And Elementary and Hannibal. I also like cartoons like Adventure Time and Amazing World of Gumball, and I might like watching Big Time Rush with my 7 year-old niece.

I like languages and linguistics, and animals and my dogs (I have two beagles who are the cutest things on the planet), and I am also the most rad substitute teacher on the planet.

I like a lot of things actually so you should probably just go through my blog and see.

I was a Japanese major who now has a Bachelor's as of 2/2013. I spent my Spring 2011 semester abroad, and intend to return to Japan to participate in the JET program. I wish to one day be a Japanese language teacher.

I'm pretty open about things, and my ask box is always open if you want to talk or need something. I like it when people message me on the Internet. It makes me feel special.

So yeah. Enjoy~

Question reblogged from See you in Hel, monster with 8 notes

asgardfarnsworth asked: Did you really need to use a misogynistic slur to make your point, or did you just do it for funsies?

I typed exactly what people have said to me. Did you realise the part where I was the autistic person in that example, not the neurotypical?

Yes, I do realise that. But you did make the conscious decision, when you wrote that post, not only to include it but to leave it unredacted and not to tag it, and I’m having serious trouble understanding why you felt like that was an acceptable thing to do.

Go fuck yourself.

reconsillium Why did you replace what I had written with “go fuck yourself”??

i’m not even involved in this conversation to any capacity but i saw this and that is not even what that originally said

lol’ing in to infinity what is even going on.

Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?

I just did some googling, and it’s debatable whether or not this is from a genuine authority. Regardless, it’s still very disgusting and I sincerely hope this conflict does NOT take this route.

Let me tell you a story. Once at a party, I had all the little girls sitting around me and I was asking them about their favorite parts of all the princess movies. The birthday girl was sitting next to me, and tells me, “Princess, your skin is the same color as…

Transgender love song becomes a viral hit online in Thailand with 9 million views →

This evening I had the misfortune to hear “Transgender Woman Never Cheats” by Thai artist Vid Hiper Rsiam.

According to Gay Star News the song tells the story of “a transgender woman who reunites with her best friend she fell in love with as a teenage boy”; but is in actuality the visual representation of a trans woman struggling with her affection toward a one time (and now again) aggressor.

The clip tells two stories featuring the main characters side by side; one set in the past, and one in the present.

In the past a young girl (who appears male at the time) pines for her friend (a cis man) as they share good times together. They ride bikes, they hang out, they even get matching tattoos. After he confides in her and falls asleep, the young woman leans over to kiss him. When he wakes he is furious, attacks her, leaves her face bloody and then stands to kick her while she is down.

Despite this the two are still upset when one has to move away. The narrative implies they are left without the chance to reconcile.

The present day story sees the two main characters (with the woman now presenting as herself) unknowingly reunite. They sleep together, part ways, then return for bed upon a chance meeting. During the second encounter he sees her tattoo and they learn of their past relationship. The man is infuriated and repeatedly pushes her away, even bloodying her head in the process. He raises his fist to hurt her, but sees affection in her eyes.

At the end of the clip his anger eases and they smile to one another.

This, apparently, is a love song.

The title of the song says it all: “Transgender Woman Never Cheats.” In that alone there are myriad implications which, while appearing to be passive, sympathetic and well meaning, makes a generalization about the loyalty of trans women to their partners. In any other context this might be considered a virtuous stereotype, but when applied to a story about a woman who is beaten and abused, loyalty in spite of herself is a dangerous and misguided thing.

Her gaze toward an abusive figure is sold as endearing and as a form of enduring love that sees beyond the violence he inflicts upon her. Throughout the narrative she is understanding of him, patient, and puts her own safety aside for the sake of his coming to terms with who she is. When he does harm to her she excuses it, accepts it as normal for a man who feels conflicted, and is waiting with open arms when his anger settles.

For the women who’ve been in similar situations, counting on the rage of an abuser to subside is not a certainty. For that idea to be sold on a mass media platform is a dangerous and irresponsible thing.

The message to trans women has long been made clear; that revulsion is the ‘normal’ reaction to our existence, that recognition of our beauty is cast into the land of fetish, that violence toward us is expected, and that our affection toward other human beings (in particular cisgender men) is justification for our being murdered.

There is no fault to be laid on women who have feelings for violent partners, but to call the violence part of a “love story” is a gross idealization of what no individual deserves from a relationship.

what a perfect example of the kind of shit we were talking about. yeah, thats totally  not like really explicit serve the men shit and trans women totally dont get this shit all the fucking time our entire lives starting from when were young, on top of all the other misogyny everywhere. /bitter sarcasam

Look at these pathetic fucking notes. You’d be reblogging your asses off if this was another one about a cis woman. But you won’t see blowback for this shit going viral like it did for blurred lines, we just aren’t important enough.

Message: “Trans women, we found a niche for you to fit into as viable partners: find an abusive jerk, smile at every punch he throws, and your stockholm-syndrome-like loyalty will have us so endeared that we’ll look past your transness.”

All the other women in the video are not just walking away from this asshole but slapping him (repeatedly) and spilling drinks on his head. He is a creepy, violent fuck and everyone knows it and the song is literally saying “but the trans woman will be ok with it.” I hated everything about this the second I saw it. Also, i don’t know if the translation is good but the one i watched had “this fake woman” as referring to herself repeated about 50 000 times :(((

Quote reblogged from You electrify my life with 33,810 notes

People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.
— Sophie Turner, in response to Sansa hate (x)
