Walmart looks like this every day
Finally decided to bring back my blog. Had a hell of a rock bottom moment but I'm ready to properly bring this back. About me..
Curvy ass Hispanic mutt, Gamer, Hordie first and foremost, Feminist, loves lifting and freshly into Yoga. I'm into just about anything of interest geek-wise and am more than open to trying out new things. After all, what's better than finding something else to love to pieces?
This version of my blog may seem a bit more feminine than my last, but I finally decided that's not something I should have to separate or hide. I can be as feminine as I want and still kick someones ass. I'll always be a grumpy ass.My best friends tumblr

My first attempt at an RP char with a Tumblr page. A bit odd to have an Alliance char, but I love her to bits and pieces and I'm constantly putting work into her. Give my naive lil priesty a visit!Alylia Medus • Watchu want?

actually the craziest death ever to happen on this show
"holy HELL" - my reaction during the finale
dravatti is one of the sweetest, most giving persons I’ve come to know on Tumblr. They gave me a very generous birthday gift, and I just wanted to say thank you with a sketch of their beautiful troll Dah’ti. Thank you again, Drav! You are most awesome. <3
So I’m sitting here with the window open when suddenly: “Hi, yes, did somebody order dog?”

Kinda obsessed with this song right now and it’s all my Taunka DK’s fault. It’s so her.
Video has a few wrong lyrics and typos but the visuals are so pretty I’ll post it anywhos. :P “young" not "youth"
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
Cops just don’t want their crimes caught on tape!
The Ferguson police department was forced to release an incident report with the freedom of information act by the ACLU. When the ACLU gets the report it only has Michael Brown’s date of death and nothing about the incident and it was filed two days ago.
So that means that the Darren Wilson never filed an incident report on killing a young man and his superiors covered that up by approving and making up an incident report.
But he’s only on administrative leave?
THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII
No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!
This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”
All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)
Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.
