Okay, now for something about the blog itself instead of the loser behind the keyboard. This blog is basically my safe place to rant and post stuff without fear of harsh judgement or criticism. There will be a lot of rants, and I'll occasionally post some of my artwork, but I'm mostly going to be reblogging stuff from other people, so this blog will only be about 5% original content at the most, if that. Anyways, if you like what you see, go ahead and follow me.
ALSO: If I ever post or reblog something that offends you, just send me an ask telling me and I'll delete it, no questions asked. : )

So I often get a little upset when someone says they have derma after I tell them that I have it and they clearly don’t. I just thought I would make some clarifications.
First off we have to talk about how often someone would pick. Someone without derma may pick once a month at a bad pimple when it’s just about to explode or might pick off a scab that’s just barely hanging on. That’s not derma. People with dermatillomania will pick hours a day at anything. Newly formed scabs, acne, even made up imperfections on their skin. Sometimes the person will not even realize they are picking until they have been picking for a long time.
The next thing is triggers. People without derma don’t really have a trigger when they pick. It would just be the need to clear up skin. Dermatillomaniacs can have (aren’t limited to) physical or emotional triggers. When I say physical triggers I mean maybe the person will pass by a mirror and find an ugly pimple for example and pop it. Then there’s another. And another. Soon a lot of time will pass and the person may be behind in a task that was given, lets say, half an hour ago. An emotional trigger can be anxiety or depression (not limited to those). Sometimes this could be classified under self harm but it is not typically the case.
Lastly is scarring. People without dermatillomania most likely have little to no scars in any area of their body due to skin picking. On the other hand people with derma will end up with scars. These scars are often cause by when a dermatillomaniac picks and begins bleeding. Once a scab has formed it’ll be most likely picked at over and over again creating various kinds of scars.
If any of you have questions or corrections please message me C:
I hate the way they preach equal rights for all human beings and respect the right to life and think babies are better off in loving adoptive homes instead of dead and the way they help mothers not make the worst decision of their life that they may live to regret every day.
GOD don’t you just hate that?
I hate the way they want to take away a basic reproductive right that all women* should have access to.
I hate the way they’re giving extra rights to a fetus to use someone else’s body against their will.
I hate the way they shame women* for having abortions.
I hate the way they manipulate emotion to get their shitty point across.
I hate the way they use inaccurate propaganda to make a point.
I hate the way they want to force women* to remain pregnant, even though that’s cruel and insensitive.
I hate the way they assume every person who has an abortion will regret it. (Newsflash: a lot of women* don’t regret it).
My goodness, don’t you just hate that?
I also love this fantasy world anti-choicers live in that has enough loving homes for every unwanted pregnancy.That must be the same fantasy world in which pregnancy is never dangerous and potentially deadly, particularly unplanned pregnancies in those who can’t afford extensive medical care.
My name is Andrew Hinderliter, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. My dissertation is about online asexual discourse, with particular interest in its development over time. I ran one survey last January, and I am now conducting a survey on asexuality-related concepts and terminology.
To participate, you must be at least 18 years of age or older, be proficient in English, and identify as asexual, gray-A, or demisexual. The survey has a number of language-related questions, and it is asked that you do not look things up while taking the survey.

One good thing about this movie: he could have said “no, shooting arrows is not for little girls” but instead he said “no, shooting with that big bow is not for little girls. use this small one.” i think that’s fantastic.
:) This part was so cute.
My first reaction was ‘Nice thought but there’s no way, Coulson is much younger than…’ and then I stopped mid-thought.
Because you know what.
You know what.
After Steve, the US government had to keep trying to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum.
would be the FIRST DAMN PERSON IN LINE to volunteer?
They told us it never worked again. And that was kind of true. They never again recreated the super-strength or the gleaming pecs. But other things, they got right. They got the vastly delayed aging. And the kind of reflexes that make a man able to take out two armed thugs with a bag of flour. And the talent for leading through example. And they got the most important part, Erskine’s favorite part: the magnification of moral fiber, taking the loyalty and selflessness of a loyal and selfless man and making him into something spectacular.
Coulson didn’t buy those vintage cards on Ebay.
He’s had them since he was a little boy.
That little boy right there.
On my god my feels! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THEM?!!!!
That canon…I LIKE IT. ANOTHER!
