The Hanged Spirit
Sup, my name's Max. 21 year old starving writer/University student. I write and reblog stuff on fandoms, sensory issues, journalism stuff, Asexuality, and Hawkeye. I adventure with a dragon when I'm bored and love long walks on the beach, and poking dead fictional characters with a stick.

Everybody deserves a Max

…I don’t know what this is about… but it made me blush

So we’re on the trek back to Nanaimo, and I’ll be living in dorms this time. Which has been causing some anxiety. So while passed out in the hotel room last night, I had a level 4 nightmare (causes high anxiety, unaware that I’m dreaming, but when I wake up I know it wasn’t real) which involved them fucking me over for my dorm and I was being crammed into a room with 5 other people.
Woke up panicked and was able to CALM MYSELF DOWN! Four for you Max coco, you go Max coco! Usually I end up either panicking until I pass back out or get up and do something to distract myself. That wasn’t an option because the ‘rents were still asleep. But I was able to talk myself down, calm out, and go back to sleep, which is a fucking win.
Now, if I can do that with a level 9, then we’re really on our way to the races.

*whispers*… support all ace people.

All of them. Everyone of the goddamned spectrum. Most of us spent too long feeling very broken or confused to later get told we dont get to be part of the one community we feel we relate to.

Sex repulsed ace? You’re great. I feel.you. I know exactly what that’s like.

Sex positive ace? Man thats awesome. Whether it’s just from a like casual interest or curiosity in it as a fascinating topic or as an active participant because you like how it feels. If you arent attracted sexually to people you’re ace too and still welcome here.

Grey-a? I bet that was really confusing to figure out man, im so glad you’re here. Don’t worry I promise you’re awesome too, youre not a “fake” or anything like that.

Demi? You go, dude. Being attracted to your partner or someone you have that bond with doesnt make you less a part of our community. It doesnt meanmyou were “never really ace” or that now you’re totally allosexual. Demi is just as valid as other orientations.

Basically anyone that feels like they are part of the ace spectrum is awesome and you belong here, fuck what other people tell you.


Unless you’re a raging asshole and like a murderer or something. Then you arent awesome.

FUCKING THIS!

Listen to Mama Max for a moment

YOU ARE NOT BROKEN!

JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE ACE DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T FEEL ROMANTIC LOVE!

JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE ARO DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE ANY LESS HUMAN!

ROMANTIC LOVE IS NOT THE BE ALL END ALL

SEX IS NOT A NECCESITY FOR ROMANTIC LOVE

If you ever fucking need ANYTHING, you come to me. Understand? You are fucking incredible, I don’t care where you fall in the Ace/Aro spectrum. I support you.

I have the urge to find a Metal version of “Disco Stick” and I don’t know why.

I’m blaming cthulie and weirdia until given logical reason not to.

If by “Disco Stick” you mean Lady Gaga’s “Love Game” then I’ve got it right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX6L0tIxQP0

Weirdia Delivers

Not exactly what I was hearing in my mind, but it’s actually a pretty good song.

marchingjaybird, is this what your love life looks like?

I’ve had a couple of asks come in regarding the House quote I reblogged. And I wanted to publicly answer them without outing the people who asked.

Because you didn’t know. And that’s okay.

The comments were all very similar in thought, which was “House is an ass, of course he would say those things, the writers probably don’t hate Asexuals.”

I understand where you’re coming from, but now I want you to understand where I’M coming from. There was no indication in that the writers thought differently than House in regards to Asexuality. That can be VERY easy to show. Either House recants his statement, or a character with an opposing opinion (Ace Positive in this case) is given higher weight in the episode.

Because none of this happens, the feeling of the episode is that Asexuality is something that needs to be fixed. There are people watching this episode going “That’s how *I* feel! …I’m broken.” THAT’S what they’re taking away from that episode. And that mindset is VERY hard to shake.

So even if the writers didn’t mean to paint Asexuality as a bad thing, they did, and that is very damning for that episode, and has turned a lot of people off that show.

“It always shocked me when I realized that I wasn’t the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things.”

How damning is it to a child when they are told “Don’t be smart with me”?
What kind of message are they taking in?

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

All hail the mighty glow tree
