just saw someone on FB say that solar energy is a scam. Bro. the sun is Always here

Yeah but have you seen how slow it moves across the sky? Lazy bastard

Okay I was just again on tumblr and I am already hating it again. Especially this time around with some of the tendencies it has so... I'd want to formulate a little wish to the waterfall community since pride month comes up: (feel free to add on)


- Do NOT spread hate towards cishets. With that I mean stuff like "Cishets are the devil/the worst and should die" etc. Why? With this you ARE turning allies and potential allies away. INSTEAD call the nasty ones by their name: Transphobes, homophobes, aphobes, etc.. Because that is what you hate isn't it? Cishets do nothing wrong by merely existing such as no one in the LGBTQ+ community does anything wrong by merely existing. Projecting your hate on the awful individuals onto the whole group is only going to do bad and guess what? Increases the hate towards each other. Especially if cishets from countries where such mentalities are not the norm are reading it they will NOT understand where your hate comes from towards all of them and if they are greeted by such messages they will have no motivation to even find out.

- Queer/"q slur": It is a word with history we all know that. A history of being used as a slur AND an empowering word. "We're here, we're queer - get used to it!" No one HAS to reclaim it but there are many people who do, since decades. If you do not feel comfortable being called queer that is fine and you have every right for that. On that topic: A general post having the word queer in it does not refer to you personally and you personally were NOT called queer. It is just an umbrella term. It is not used everywhere as a slur in some countries queer is the umbrella term to go to where everyone is included. Gay is used as a slur in multiple countries as well, same with lesbian. You will never find a bigger term that is free of being used as a slur. It is important that we understand our different preferences in this aspect: If someone calls you personally queer you tell them you don't want to be refered to that. They should excuse and stop using it for you. End of story. If the elders in the community can accept their different opinions on this and move on so can we. I trust the waterfall community to handle this good.

- Please don't turn it into a competition on who is more oppressed. It's not "Who's the most oppressed?!"-month. It's pride month. Take pride in WHO you are! Support each other instead of going "You aren't as oppressed as me so shut the fuck up!".

- Not just a pride month thing but in general: Subcommunities are fine and well but for the love of anything: Stop that categorial thinking! We are all different yet the same. We all know some form of oppression and violence towards us even if it is differing. We, as a community, should know the best how it is to be excluded so why are we excluding each other? And it's not just an internet thing. Just the day ago I was calling with a gay friend of mine who's leading a queer-youth group in the city who wanted to invite a nb friend of his and got the response "how many white cis gays are there?". Who cares? Such groups and the internet are there for communication and exchange! We all can learn from each other. Especially in a group focusing on such a topic there should be an accepting, understanding and tolerance to each other.


kodzuken -

Very good points

Can i also add that not everyone whos an exclusionist/transphobe is straight and cis :) so by directing your hate to just cishets is uhhh not very constructive because youre saying other members in the LGBTQ+ community get a pass on being hateful when they Do Not

Lesbians and gays dont get a pass on being bi/pan/a/transphobic

Bisexuals do not get a pass on being pan/a/trans/homo/lesbophobic

And transmeds sure as HELL dont get a fucking pass being enby/transphobic

Etc etc

Not Everyone Who Breeds Hate Is Straight And Cis please remember that


pilica-nevarya -

Exactly no one gets a pass on being any kind of -phobic. Thanks for the addition.

I've been too long on tumblr because right now everything in my body is telling me I'll get figuratively murdered for my last post- wow.

you @ your own brain: why are you booing me? I'm right

You're absolutely right on that XD

Lyserg's left and right brain

I've got a digimon OC, Lyserg Griffiths. He's a digidestined with not one but TWO digimon. Well he is an acting student and his two partners are like hiw two brain cells. Writing another post with Lys I realised that and HAD to draw this.


You all know the feeling when you should learn but your brain is like: "Get back into old fandoms/series right NOW!" ?


timeskip asked:

⭐ :D

Well hello there!

⭐ I have way too many projects and way too few time. I am parallel writing iirc 5 stories (pillars of fate, dreamwanderer, Inuzuma, aaand some I didn't set on titles yet), not to mention trying to improve my digital art (which I post on my art blog), making refs for all my OCs, etc. etc. Pluuuuus my joy of rpgs, mod duties on Eldarya and wanting to read and game all together. A day should have more than 24 hours.

⭐ Since it literally just happened: I regularly forget that my browser does not seem to support the right click + paste here on waterfall and I instead have to do ctrl+v.

⭐ Idk if I already told that but! I'm a psychology student in Switzerland. Today I had an exam: statistics.


goropancakechi -

For every ⭐ I get I'll tell you a fact about myself


melancholia -

If you're an active blog as of may/June 2020 plz reblog!


What is your Runalong I must know. I know I'm not the only one ok I swear,, i hope ;;
Mine kinda changes depending on the time of the day jkdsfjs- like if it's dark outside and the streetlights are on, it would kinda blend in with the lights. The lights are aliveeee.


pilica-nevarya -

Ooooh mine always were some kinds of dragons. Which one? Depending on my mood/place/weather. For example during storms they were clearly thunder/storm- dragons. Sometimes they wouldn't be even next to the card but would drag my attention up in the air and back again depending on how high they were flying.

When you get the role of Ursula in a werewolf game and get put into a lovers pair with Kuzco... Yeah I'm gonna draw this.

waterfy'all i need your help

what would the nonbinary equivalent of a mancave/she-shed be called??


pilica-nevarya -

How about them-dungeon ?


beenary -

saw this on the bluesite and it was interesting so: if you had wings would they be bird wings, bat wings, or insect wings?


babushka -

While we're at it, every single discussion of LGBT+ terms on hellsites is happening like English is the only language you can be gay/trans in


"No one needs to invent a gender neutral pronoun, we have singular they" - we don't

"Queer is a word with a history" - and its history is a same in every language apparently

"Gay is a good umbrella term" - except for when it isn't an adjective at all


fallow -

oh, huh! what's the context for the last two?


babushka -

the context is a popular tumblr discourse topic that i would rather not dive into too much but i'll tell you under the cut how i see this situation.

i don't wanna make it a dnr but i also don't wanna be that person who brings tumblr discourse here, and quite a heated one.

this is about whether the word "queer" should be completely reclaimed and used as an umbrella term or censored and forgotten since it's technically a slur.

pros are that the word is already partially reclaimed, there's Queer Eye tv show, Queer As Folk tv show, Queer Studies, etc. and is not just about orientation like "gay" is (people who use LGBT+ as umbrella term sometimes forget to specify what's after the + and turn out to be some kind of exclusionist).

cons are that it's still used as a slur to this day.

the solution so far is that people who want to identify as queer do so, but don't use this label as an umbrella term since not everyone wants to use it.

HOWEVER the word is more widely used as an umbrella term in some other languages *cough* Russian *cough*, since it doesn't have a history of being used as a slur.


pilica-nevarya -

Well I honestly think in contrast to tumblr people on here actually can discuss without getting personal and unfair.

To the thing under the read more:

The whole 'it's used as a slur' mentality in itself is imo preeeeety hypocritical. Gay is used as a slur as well. Anyone wants to censor that? Even in the english speaking part of the net I've never come across anyone using queer as a slur. Gay in contrast is used as a slur, also in multiple languages. (german here for example) It may was used as a slur, it may still is somewhere used as a slur but it's ALSO a powerful word that was used by the community. Or is everyone forgetting about "We're here, we're queer - get used to it!"?

"I broke up with them because we never argue"

I.

I don't even know what to say to that.


pilica-nevarya -

I think that's highkey the same mentality of "you need arguments to keep your relationship spicy/interesting" and like "arguments are GOOD and HEALTHY for a relationship". Like... I actually got into an argument about THAT with someone because my s/o and I NEVER argue. We have discussions, sometimes less, sometimes more lively. But we never argue. Honestly in my eyes this shows the mutual respect we have. Because when you argue in my opinion you just want to crash the other with your opinion. It doesn't even really matter if your right or wrong sometimes. You just want to win. Meanwhile when you discuss both get to say their part and you can work out something on equal grounds and there's no need for anyone to start shouting or get personal or whatever.

So yeah: Thinking that arguments are something good and healthy and a must have... I'd recommend such people taking a step back and actually thinking abou what they say.


babushka -

"but i need to make scenes and be yelled at!! how else am i going to have fun??"

by uh. dying by my bla- i mean, learning to be a decent person?? sorry, have a problem with this logic since forever.

as the original post - the only thing that can top this is "this relationship is actually going really well so i am going to just assume it is too good to true and break up now" (actually happened).


pilica-nevarya -

"Too good to be true" Well it ain't true anymore because they blew it.

Honestly there's soooo much flawed logic that it's painful thinking about it sometimes. And I'm often not sure if such people just don't think about or want to think about it or if they genuinely believe that.

goropancakechi -

I 100% agree with you!

Like, sure you can't always agree on everything, sometimes people have different opinions, and that's totally fine! But if it immediately ends in arguing or even a screaming match, then that's definitely not as healthy as people think, especially if it's a common (or even daily) occurence.

There is a difference between discussing and talking about your different opinions and trying to work something out, and just trying to get the other to agree with you. And I think some people just don't know that? Though whether it's ignorance or just geniune not knowing there's a difference depends on the person obviously.

Not saying it's inherently bad to be miffed about a difference in opinion though! It all depends on how you act about it in my opinion. And obviously also how serious the situation is.


pilica-nevarya -

Absolutely! And I don't say that if you argue once your relationship is shitty. Arguments can happen. But if your relationship is more arguing than anything that's another story.

As for differing opinions: You can talk it out. And honestly? You don't have to agree with everything. There probably are things that you won't find common ground with with your partner and that is acceptable. Obviously depending on what topic. If it's something very serious that actually shows they are... a person that you wouldn't be able to stay with because of such a mindset then that's something different. For example I could never be with someone who for example would deny my existence with their mindset. Or someone who has real double standards.
