Re: Kpop Thread

with everything jonghyun said about wanting to be happy and struggling, this all feels especially disheartening and upsetting. he was incredibly talented, dedicated and someone who really cared about helping other people feel a bit less alone. he was a big part of so many people's young teenage live...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 60: Lady Door Tour

i don't like the gaming channel much these days because the reasons for not playing ~real~ games don't apply to them because, like, they do play those kinds of games. they always talk about a great game they just finished or are replaying that have stories and interesting mechanics and things like t...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 59: the literal other half

damn i heard the ff shop was a nightmare to get into, like if you're lucky you get a small timeslot where you're allowed in, and people going to the distant worlds ff music show weren't allowed a time slot to go in. it also can't be a delayed pic by much, can it? the shop only opened up yesterday

the third one makes me uncomfortable, but that's just the most typical way some slash shippers like to express themselves, I guess.
charlie, crossing boundaries in his attempt to be edgy and down with the kids and making people uncomfortable? i'm shocked.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 58: Come in my lady door

i'm disappointed but not surprised by this thing because it's so easy to have a predetermined bias on how good a person you associate with is. whether or not someone's considered ~problematic~ isn't always dependent on what they've actually done because people prioritise issues and justify bad thing...

Today has been a really rough day: this morning I've been diagnosed with depression, and this evening my cat died because the vet "made a mistake".

Re: Dan & Phil Part 56: Phanthony! at the Disco

i think it makes more sense for us to call out a type of issue prevalent in our own small bubble rather than the massive one that runs society. doesn't mean it's the biggest problem ever, but it's unavoidable in our forum and our fandom, so it's an easy space to talk about it in. it's something that...

definitely agree with aleanna , goldenmermaid and captainspacecoat on this tweet stuff. a lot of the time mental illness does make things seem worse than they are, that's kind of the point. i also use a lot of not so great coping mechanisms, so a part of me likes seeing his tweets and videos because...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 54: Born in the fires of the internet

i basically think a mental health video would be more negative than positive because people feel very strongly about their own experiences, and no matter how hard he tries to make it clear that its his own experience, some people are going to feel invalidated (or say they are on behalf of others) i...

As we've already discussed, deppy both don't really fit the bill when it comes to typical masculinity and I think a lot of straight cis men have issues with internalised gender roles here.
