So this idea is based on the scene in Lilo and Stitch where Lilo hangs the lei around Stitch’s neck, and he flops to the floor, suddenly calm. It’s a little ooc for Zim, but hey, it makes for a funny (and adorable) mental image, and one I had to draw.
Zim are you a cat
I wonder if there’s a certain significance of a person frequently appearing near the end of your dreams?
I don’t know about specifically the end of a dream, but it’s a reasonable conclusion that if you’re able to recognize specific people in your dreams, it’s probably significant. Most likely caused by thinking about that person or else interacting with them somehow.
"Don’t take ~chemicals~ like prozac, I heard you can get the same effect by eating 19 oranges a day, that’s only 570 oranges a month!!!"
"Yeah I know you have horrible panic attacks but like, have you tried yoga?"
"Yeah I understand depression completely stops you from doing everyday tasks AND that you then feel guilty about that… But you have to just power through it and get on with things as normal!"
"Oh you have OCD? So do I, I clean my room, like, every weekend. What you need to do is just not carry out your compulsions. Here’s some dirt, I’ll physically restrain you so you don’t wash your hands, even though you don’t even have an obsession with cleanliness and this is a job for a trained therapist, because they’ve learned how to conduct CBT without making problems worse, unlike me, who doesn’t know jack shit about what I’m doing."
This is how thoroughly we women have been sexualized, that we cannot make the kind of noises that come with physical exertion without it being associated with sex. In fact, everything about our bodies has been sexualized in one way or another. If we groan during sport or we breast-feed in public, we are criticized for making people think about sex. If we talk openly about things like menstruation and poop and farts, then we are criticized for making people not want to think about sex.
Think about what it means to be ladylike and all of the adjectives that go along with it: elegant, cultured, classy, sophisticated. To be successful at being feminine means being successful at being private, keeping your body’s natural functions behind closed doors and never letting anyone know they exist. It means to be constrained, that you do not let your legs spread wide in public transportation and you do not make noises that are harsh on the ears. It means presenting a polished, shiny surface to the world at all times, one that allows others to project whatever they wish onto you while never showing too much of your true self.
NEW STRONG ENGLISH VOCALOID ‘RUBY” SHES SO FUCKING GOO)D OPUTS ALL THE REST TO SHAME
i honestly thought that this was a joke post like this had to be a joke and i hit play and i legit was like “that sax is supposed to be the voice isn’t it like that’s the joke, engloids sound like stuffy honk machines”
AND THEN THE MIRACLE GIRL GRACED MY EARS HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT THERE IT IS THERE IT IS THERE IT IS THE COHERENT CLEAR-VOICED ENGLOID MAKING ALL THE OTHERS WEAR DUNCE CAPS SHE’S THE QUEEN ENG I MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE TO START CARING ABOUT VOCALOID AGAIN JESUS CHRIST
Its not perfect tho
I guess this is what regular vocaloids must sound like to Japanese people
I never thought about that before
No, it’s not a perfect voice, but you can discern the words being sung, and that’s one of the biggest steps forward in english vocaloids. Like, Japanese vocaloids can speak/sing coherently in english, even with the slight distortion of being a synthesizer and the accent, you can still pick out their English words and understand what they’re saying. Before now, I haven’t heard of an English vocaloid that can do that much.
It’s funny. People don’t want to tip and yet they get furious at the idea of raising the minimum wage to something decent that would make tipping obsolete. It’s almost as if there are people who want to use financial stability as a mark of superiority. Imagine that.
It does not matter if a boundary makes sense to you. It does not matter if it seems inconsequential to you. Boundaries are the prerogative of the person who sets them. You do not know that person’s story, and they are not obligated to justify their boundaries to you. That touch that seems insignificant to you may be uncomfortably intimate for someone else. That interaction that is fine with others may trigger someone’s PTSD. You do not know more about someone than they know about themselves. Trust that they know what they are doing when they set a boundary with you, even if you do not understand why.
When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.
"I can’t help it" is not a good excuse to cross someone’s boundaries, either.
Do I hear
