Look y’all, I’m not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore, I cop to that. BUT THIS is a total shit show. 

Fandom belongs to FANS and should not EVER be on a website that the powers that be create for their own purposes or in the control of a corporate sponsor (.mtv is not cute). Placing work on the website, ADMITTING to the desire to move fandom into an area where they have more control and removing the interaction fans have with each other to a space in which 1. you don’t hold the rights to your work and standards are set not by the community but the powers that be and 2. you’re removed from the traditions of fanspace is totally gross and inappropriate on their part. They aren’t the first ones to try this bullshit either, they’re just cloaking it in different words.

Please don’t fall for this and if you DO and are curious about it please carefully read the TOS for the site you are signing up for and learn about how they can and will use your content for profit in the future. Protect yourself, protect your community. Ultimately, it’s your choice but it should always be YOUR choice and YOUR experience and YOUR fandom. Bringing it out of the realm of fans, where you didn’t create the website, you didn’t make the rules, you can’t do whatever the fuck you want, is not okay. It’s not what fandom is about. Teen Wolf PTB aren’t PART of fandom. You are.

This subscriber feature on AO3 is so weird because you know some people follow you but you can’t (not that know of) really tell who’s following you and why? Considering that everything I post get just a few likes and no reviews with positive/negative points, I don’t even know if I’m writing for the fandom I have a mute) audience?

Why do you read my stuff? Is it Sterek you want? Maybe you’re a Flones (or Pudd) shipper? You could be a Ziam/Larry person too, but I guess I’ll never know?

Okay, my issue with this "Zayn knows all about periods" thing, is the fact that, yeah, he should. Don't all men? I don't like the fact that people think that means he's a loving boyfriend just because he knows what periods are? I don't understand why she felt the need to comment on that when I feel like that should just be expected? It kind of just adds fuel to the "periods are a taboo topic despite the fact that around half of the population experiences them" fire. I think a lot of people (c)

dailydoseofziam answered:

(c) are focusing on the wrong thing when they say things like “ew Perrie, we don’t need to know about your bodily functions!”, because I feel like the fact that there would be any doubt as to whether he knows about her period is the bigger issue. Tbh.

Yeah, I have no doubts that he knows about periods. Three sisters kind of guarantee it, and it definitely has nothing to do with Perrie. But the fact that she thinks telling stuff about periods and farting validates her relationship and is something that needs to be told in interviews… no, just no.

Edit: To her defense it must be said, that the interviewer asks about their opinion about talking about periods with boyfriends, but honestly, their manager should have axed that question.

There’s actually so many things wrong in that particular interview, that I’m aghast. The biggest problem of course is that LM are so inexperienced that they don’t understand how stupid it is that the whole interview is about them and the opposite sex. If they were men, I’d guarantee that talk would be more about something other than attracting women. Even with 1D’s ‘hide the gay’ agenda, their actual interviews are far more substantial.

Jesy says stuff like:

"I don’t think a girl ever feels completely comfortable without make-up on in front of a boy."

You just kind of roundabout way made yourself inferior there compared to men, Jesy. What the fuck?

and

"I think one key thing is to always make sure the boy loves you more than you love them - then you’ll never end up getting as hurt. And always keep them on their toes."

Sweetie, if you think that’s love, you’re so far off, it ain’t even funny.

Then we have Leigh-Anne:

"You have to treat boys like children. No offence, but you do."

I give up. They’re hopeless.

I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:

Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.

I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.

The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propagated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’

Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.

Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.

I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts. 

(via linzthenerd)

Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.

I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.

Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.

Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.

Matthew 8:5-13

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.

In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.
