    I remember seeing this short film a long time ago. Basically, this little machine sees a television with a pretty doll face. She wants to be just like what she sees on t.v, and changes her appearance. The standards get higher and higher (literally), but she tries earnestly.

    You can see what happens in the end.This video leaves a powerful message about how our standards of beauty are too high and soon it becomes out of reach.

    As one of the comments of the video says

    "She was original but she died a copy."

    My son, eating (enjoying?) his first salted cricket.

    I have no doubt - prepared well - these would be far more delicious, but those were overly salted and pretty nasty.

However, there is also the other great mystery of inner space. And that is what sits on your shoulders, which believe it or not, is the most complex object in the known universe. But the brain only uses 20 watts of power. It would require a nuclear power plant to energise a computer the size of a city block to mimic your brain, and your brain does it with just 20 watts. So if someone calls you a dim bulb, that’s a compliment."

    John Aravosis is a transmisogynist, misogynist, lesbophobic, bisexual-hating tool who would like to boot everyone but gay men out of the LGBT rights movement because gay men invented gay activism. He also claimed that trans people needed to wait our turn because we’re ~latecomers~ to the whole activism thing.

  9. What you’re really saying when you’re against self diagnosis:

    brand-lokason:

    theconcealedweapon:

    1. Everyone should be assumed neurotypical and should be forced to act neurotypical, until proven otherwise.

    2. Everyone who has been unable to get diagnosed for any reason should suffer in silence.

    it costs about $800 to get a diagnosis as an adult.

    insurance tends to not cover it.

    i didn’t spend the donation money on the fucking video game you asshole. leave me alone, i’m done talking about this.

    It doesn’t matter where the money comes from, Kat, it matters that you spent money you could have otherwise used for your care towards something frivolous, and then flaunt it in front of people who care for your well-being. I think this conversation will continue, even if you aren’t a part of it, until you apologize to your followers. You violated a trust there. People trusted that you were in such a dire situation that you were on or near death’s door without their money. If that were actually the case, you wouldn’t have the means to buy that game.

    You believe I’m coming from a place of hate, Kat, I am not. I just want you to see the error of your ways. It would go a long way into the relationships you have with people and your followers.

    If you’re hungry for an apology, let me try:

    I’m sorry you think that donating $5 to someone makes them your pet.

    This just in, poor trans people aren’t allowed to spend their own money how they choose if they’ve received any donations. Seriously people, this shit is just as bad as policing what people buy with their food stamps and it needs to stop.

    This just in poor trans people arent allowed any entertainment and must sit quietly and stare at a wall at all times instead of doing anything that might take their minds off of their suffering for a brief moment.

    Bingo.

    Shit, no one tell anyone that the last time I got donations I bought Fallout: New Vegas too.

    Crap.

    My mom does this same shit, I used SSI money to get a tablet a few Xmases ago, so I have a mobile computer, I had to hide that thing from her because she would loose her shit. She would get pissed if bothered to use my money to buy gifts for the holidays…god.

    Holy crap. I was literally telling my mother last week about the things I plan to get with my lump sum SSI payments, and they included a tablet, smartphone, and flatscreen TV. Because they’re affordable and because I need those things.

    It’s ridiculous the way people think if you’re poor and on benefits you have no right to anything you want.

    Kit should be able to spend on whatever kits wants regardless. I am sick and fucking tired of anyone poor or in poverty not being able to buy the food they want (In my case it’s fresh local foods and craft beer), the toys or events they want to go to. I use to feel guilty for eating healthy, to buy things from cool shops or going to huge events (I want to go to a pagan festival with my grove) so this shit is classist and hurtful.

    Folks should stop this expense policing, I work full time, pay my bills and I still don’t have enough, but by golly I have the right to by the shit I want, so does Kat.

    You are the shittiest kind of person. Your pseudo-emotional shaming tactics are pathetic. People aren’t mad at Kat for buying a video game, they’re mad at Kat for existing. Kat has been the target of attacks for literally every aspect of kits life and this is no different.

    Do you understand what it’s like to have to buy insulin? You have to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars for the rest of your life. With your logic of “you should put it in your savings!” you’re basically saying kit can only live for kits disease. You’re saying kit doesn’t deserve forms of entertainment, you’re saying kit doesn’t deserve to have a roof over kits head, you’re saying kit doesn’t deserve to have anything of remote value to kit because you’re saying that kit is never allowed to spend money on kitself ever. This is a life long issue, therefore Kat will always have to save for it, which means according to you, Kat can never spend anything on kitself.

    What’s next? “You didn’t need to buy that shirt for $15! You could just wear your older raggier ones!” “You didn’t need to spend $30 on food for the week! If you ate less you could have another $20 in savings!” “You don’t need to have a bed! That’s there strictly for comfort! Sell it and pay for your medicine!” “You don’t have to have running water! That’s extra money for medicine every week!”

    $15 on a video game that’s on sale isn’t negating the hardships of paying hundreds of hundreds and thousands and thousands of dollars on medicine for a life long condition. And, you, right now, are shaming someone for trying to find fun and happiness because they’re not devoting every aspect of their life to being miserable in having to live with these horrid conditions.

    You are coming from a place of hate. Every message of yours towards Kat is an endless brigade of smearing kit and shaming kit. If you didn’t mean to come from a place of hate, you would have never said a damn word.

    And, here’s a fun fact for you, Kat’s friends and followers (the real followers and not hateful little shits like yourself), don’t give a fuck that Kat bought a $15 video game.

    You owe Kat an apology. But let me guess, you won’t give one because “I’m riiiight! I don’t understand anything about Kat’s position but I have to be 100% riiiight!”

    $15 is fucking nothing to the overwhelming bill that is insulin. God forbid that someone wants to enjoy their life for a few fleeting minutes of time. God forbid that someone wants to spend $15 to escape the constant depression and anxiety (that people like you cause) of their life.

    But, I guess you won’t be happy unless Kat’s sitting on the side of the street with no food, no water, no clothes, no electricity, no where to live, no possessions of any kind; all sacrificed for the costs of medicine. Because this is what you’re preaching.

    Asshole.
