Please tag things involving me as 'theguybelowmesucks' so I can see them!. Hello! You can call me Kim! I write bad RT fanfiction and, once in a while, make bad art and gifs. I liveblogged Late night with Cry and Russ once upon a time, but I don't do it too often now. You'll see anime and/or video game posts too. Also--I'm really lame so don't get too excited ;u;
Anonymous inquired: *smooches your cheek* *wraps a blanket around you* you don't have to drive again if you don't want to, there are alternatives. Also, it was messed up of your mum to require you to do that and that is a fault of her, not you.
i know i don’t have to but i probably should for job reasons. and besides, if it’s winter and icy, i wouldn’t be able to ride a bike anywhere and we don’t have public transportation in the town that i live in except for cabs, and i can’t rely on cabs for the rest of my life because that’s too fuckin expensive
it was messed up but no one could pick up my brother, and no one could take him home. he would be stuck walking home if anything and it’s too far of a walk—he doesn’t know the way home from where he was. somebody had to do it, and obviously my mom wasn’t in the shape to drive. i’m glad that i drove since that sheriff came along though
and my dad was asleep since he has to wake up at 4:30 in the morning, and he had been drinking before then as well so that wouldn’t help
Anonymous inquired: -lies down in your lap- KIM I'M TIRED AND I HAVE SO MANY RESPONSIBILITIES THAT I REFUSE TO START ANY OF THEM
I UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN, FRIEND
JUST TAKE IT EASY AND RELAX AND TAKE THINGS AT A SLOW PACE
DO IT WHEN YOU’RE READY
Even doing little progress is better than none, whether it be writing one or two sentences for a paper, reading a page or two in a book, or perhaps even getting a question done on a worksheet—it’s an accomplishment in itself, so don’t force yourself to work on something all at once because all you’ll do is get tired and drop it. ;u; I browse Tumblr in between my work, so maybe you can do that after you do something—whatever your responsibilities may be at this particular moment ;u;
Anonymous inquired: Huh. Yeah I agree with you there. I dunno, it just kind of sucks that they're producing all this content for us and then we sit here and blow a bunch of really dumb stuff out of proportion. Don't get me wrong, It's totally okay to be offended by something, and I understand why and people have the right to express that offense, I just think the way it's handled within the fandom really needs changed. (:
Yeah. I’m really grateful for RT producing all of this content for their audience and you can tell that they do a lot of hard work in doing so. It’s cool that they do care so much for a lot of us, but yes, it does suck that a lot of people can sometimes push the smallest thing out of proportion and make it seem a bit more terrible than it really is (but what’s small to me can be big to another person).
I don’t think the fandom will really stop expressing when they’re offended, and I don’t think there will be another method of doing so. Everyone will want to speak of it, and for archiving reasons, they also end up being in main tags as well so I can see why that happens but still, it just becomes really irritating after a while. I dunno what can be an alternative, or if there even really is an alternative at all.
Anonymous inquired: (I'm the anon that asked you to explain) thanks for that, It really clears it up. That's kind of lame, I mean, like Ray probably shouldn't have said it, but the fandom really needs to stop being so offended by everyone. It's kind of like we nit-pick everything they say and blow it way out of proportion. It's kind of like the connect-the-hots thing. I dunno. What do you think?
No problem!! Glad that I could help ;u;
Ahhh, I honestly dunno anymore. I understand where you are coming from, but I also understand what everyone else is coming from. While it is wrong to say a slur that has been unofficially established as a wrong word to say in that company, the RT fandom really does blow a lot of things out of proportion (imo). Usually it clears up in a week or so, maybe longer depending.
I’ve mentioned that I am not offended so of course I feel like this; but that doesn’t speak for others who are personally offended at the slur (or any other slur that has been spoken of from the company). So I mean, it is okay for others to be offended but I still don’t like how tags get cluttered up because of it. I feel like it should be kept somewhere else but that is just me.
The Connect the Hots thing was actually pretty bad and kind of did deserve the outburst that it needed, but I feel like things like that and this recent incident shouldn’t be continually brought up—I feel like it should die down quickly because it causes a lot of controversy and several arguments that becomes annoying after a while, and being the person I am, I hate constant fighting over something that I really enjoy.
