[syndicated profile] captainawkward_feed posted: #1194: “I’m moving in with my girlfriend and now my homophobic parents want to disown me.”

Dear Pretty Great Kid,

I confess, I want to embroider a sampler for all of the homophobic and transphobic parents in the world. It will say “Kindly get in the fucking sea.”

How fucking dare they.

How dare they talk about “disowning” you as if “owning” you was something they get to do in the first place.

How dare they act as if there is a mold fitted with the exact specifications for “daughter” that you were supposed to climb into so you could have the inconvenient parts of yourself, the parts called “gay” and “made a slightly different career choice than they hoped for” sheared off, how dare they act as if that is the price of being loved and being part of your family.

How dare they treat their love for you like an audition that you have to pass. How dare they act like you are in danger of failing it.

How dare they respond to your good news, the news that you are in love and happy, with disapproval and threats.

Can your parents possibly, possibly, possibly be more disappointed in you, I wonder, than I am disappointed in them at this moment? (No)

What a poisonous, empty love they offer you if these are its terms.

Let’s talk about this proposed trip. I hope I’m reaching you in time to cancel it.

First I want every queer person and victim of child abuse to read this, then I think I am not the only one who needs time travel to be invented so I can give this and a few useful links on gender and sexuality to my past self.

TGIFF! Hope everyone had a good week, this time I thought I'd start off with a story from the Magnus Archives:
flickering images, ghostly vision (1527 words) by Kalgalen
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Magnus Archives (Podcast)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Basira Hussain, Melanie King, Jonathan Sims, Alice "Daisy" Tonner, Martin Blackwood
Additional Tags: nothing really it's pretty chill as far as mag fics go

Melanie shrugs and motions to the item, still nested in newspapers stuffed in a shoebox. “What does it do, then?”

“According to this statement,” Basira says, tapping a file on her desk, “it shows monsters. Avatars. Non-humans, in any case. Given our situation, it might be useful.”

“Hmm.” A pause, as Melanie seems to think. “What would it show us?”


“What would it show us, Basira?”

For the second course, how about we go with a MCU avengers story with nice low stakes?
Make It Till You Fake It (4020 words) by AggressiveWhenStartled

Additional Tags: Fake/Pretend Relationship, Trope Subversion, schrodinger's relationship, POV Outsider, Dildos, A lot of them - Freeform, although tagging 'dildos' probably gives a false impression of this fic, which is actually mostly a game of relationship chicken, valentines day fic without the actual day involved

Ned,” Peter said, like a drowning man sighting land. “Ned. Captain America and the Winter Soldier are fake dating right now and it is the most painfully awkward and obvious thing I have ever seen, all of us want to die, Ned.”

For dessert, proof you don't need a ship to break your heart, from our own [personal profile] potofsoup:

All you need to do is add a couple lines of CSS under customize journal and click where it says "reload page in style: mine".

In light of certain parties using the post calling them out to find new people to pester, I wanted to remind people that in addition to blocking users from making comments on your journal you can use CSS to hide their posts so you don't have to see their nonsense. Just remember to view comments in your style to make them disappear!

[personal profile] muccamukk posted: Do Not Engage Warning
Not that anyone here was thinking of it, probably, but I strongly recommend against engaging in any way with Ad Astra [personal profile] itur_ad_astra/[personal profile] itur_ad_astra.

They began their presence in Babylon 5 fandom by posting a 20k Gish Gallop in someone's comment..

obviously more detail at the source post; just wanted to give people a heads up, also there is someone called "behind the gloves" who thinks psycorps did nothing wrong and will argue about it so be aware, especially if you are someone like me who has reason to take defense of fascist government groups on an emotional level.

[syndicated profile] captainawkward_feed posted: #1189: “Fox News, Immigrant Family, and the F******* Wedding Invite List”

Let’s review the situation: Your uncle has hateful views that are being used to detain, harm, and imprison people and steal their children, and he acts like an aggressive jerk specifically to you, and the rest of your family is somehow surprised that you don’t want him at your wedding?  And your parents are blaming you for causing an unforgivable rift in the family if one drunk bigot doesn’t get invited, but not blaming him for being a ranting bigot in the first place? Do we have that right?

Captain's response )

me ranting a bit )
TL;DR: You have a right to safety from abuse on your special day or any other day! If asking for that means that a family member can't be around you, it was their choice to abuse that was the cause of the problem not you!
