i get asks from time to time from people upset they can’t claim spoon theory to describe themselves, from people who say “able bodied people still have spoons, just a lot more of them than someone with an illness”.

i’m going to have to stop you right there, folks — spoon theory was CREATED to describe chronic illness. its origin and reason for existence is to give people with chronic ailments the ability to articulate their energy levels at any given time. 

reserving spoon theory for people with chronic illnesses is not othering able bodied people. it is empowering people with disabilities. the empowerment of a marginalized group does not mean to automatic demotion of a privileged one. 

healthy people don’t need spoon theory. healthy people get tired, yes. of course everyone runs out of energy eventually, yes. of course everyone needs rest, yes. but that struggle is not synonymous to someone whose life is defined by difficult choices, someone whose disease means choosing between cooking lunch and taking a shower, or whose flare-ups make it impossible to complete certain tasks. 

some things are simply not yours to claim. some terms belong to certain groups, because they were created specifically for that group to be used by that group, often in order to communicate their specific situation to someone who wouldn’t understand from the outside. be respectful. don’t take it personally. be compassionate to people dealing with chronic illness and disabilities and mental illness. it is the right thing to do. 

sophygurl: “ maevele: “ no-more-ramen: “ i get asks from time to time from people upset they can’t claim spoon theory to describe themselves, from people who say “able bodied people still have spoons,…

while I feel perfectly legit using spoons as a metaphor when I’m in the midst of a bad depressive episode, I worry because one of the things I use spoons as shorthand for the most, actually, is my introversion - which isn’t exactly a disability.

I’ve always thought of spoons as being a perfect way to describe the limits to my ability to be sociable and assumed it was a legit way to describe it for any introverts, because we genuinely have limits to our emotional ability to deal with other people, but I guess that’s not really enough to justify appropriating spoon theory?

or maybe what I’ve always thought of as ‘introvert’ spoon limits on socialization are more to do with other ways in which I’m weird? I. don’t actually know what happens to other introverts when they’re over-socially stimulated, besides withdrawing and getting cranky - now that I’m thinking about it, it seems kind of unlikely for it to trigger meltdowns in most people, except in really extreme circumstances of some kind.

and that is really what my spoons usually represent to me: how much I can deal with before I end up completely falling apart.

maybe I shouldn’t use spoons for myself anymore? like. it’s not like I don’t get them back, usually. and they’re not really quantifiable in terms of physical effort or whatever, since mine are pretty much always emotional.

IDK what else to use if not spoons, tho. It’s such a handy shorthand that most people know and understand, and it says in just a few words what might take me paragraphs otherwise.

I’ll probably just keep using the spoons metaphor and feel vaguely guilty about it, but I don’t really understand why I shouldn’t use it, either.

as always, I am so fucking confused.

it does look like quite a few disabled folks disagree with what no-more-ramen’s saying here, and (from my admittedly biased and abled pov) making some pretty good points.

"Classic Header" is now "Header Options"

And it allows you to un-stickify the header and make it’s width fixed (which might be useful if you keep trying to click the blank space where the Tumblr logo used to be, like me.)

It also allows you to make the notification bubble on the Inbox red again, so you wouldn’t miss new messages.

If you already have “Classic Header”, you can perform an Update All from XKit Control Panel > Other > Update All to upgrade.

Important! I never knew how attached I was to the red!

heads up to all graphic/gif makers: the new dimensions don’t work either. if you upload a photo according to the size (ex. 540px), tumblr will resize it to 500px then stretch it to 540. same goes for 268px (resize to 245, stretch), 177px (resize to 160).

in short, DON’T BOTHER. if you have the time, go send an email to support. not only the update is shitty, it’s also faulty.

lmao what

yeah here. say someone knows your email and adds it to their contacts list and they have a tumblr. then they go here

to the lookup page

i don’t know how the facebook portion works exactly. 

the gmail version, you click it and anyone who is on your friends list or that you have emailed shows up like this

Color coded for privacy purposes but

black = blog name. its a click through that links to the blog

blue  = icon image 

purple = email associated with the blog

just from knowing your email, people can now find your blogs and i think that’s hella scary personally. so my personal suggestion is create an email solely for tumblr, do not give it out to anyone, do not send messages to people on it, and keep it only so you can use this account. don’t even let others know what it is.

that’s my suggestion to keep the maximum privacy
hope it helps

"Makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not obscure it. Use subtle highlights to accent the ravenous hunger in your eyes and bring out the extraordinary size of your submandibular venom glands."

"Your daily positive affirmation: today I am thankful for being alive and blessed with rows upon rows of teeth that shear right through muscle and bone."

"Conceal your dark circles. Conceal your bright chevrons and your dusky stripes. The humans must not suspect what you are."

"New research shows that ideal femininity encompasses a lamia’s beauty, a cyclops’ strength, a hydra’s deadliness, a Fury’s heartlessness, a harpy’s swiftness, and a sphinx’s love of feasting on less intelligent creatures. Be a chimera that cannot be contained!"

"Aim to be described as "inexplicably eerie," "unsettlingly off," and "I’m not sure what she looks like, I could never keep my eyes on her face long enough to see."

I want to read and watch all the tiny moments where hands make the promises your words can’t yet, or repeat the promises you’ve already made, or demonstrate love when you aren’t saying it, or give kindness and comfort and dizziness and sex, or pull the other closer, draw them too close, beg and hope. And then also where they hold on forever when there’s no closer and no too close.

Photographer Reveals the Lonely Side of Superheroes

Photographer Benoit Lapray’s photo series, “The Quest for Absolute" focuses on the loneliness of famous superheroes, set in the beautiful, yet desolate landscape of the French Alps.

The funny thing about this photoset—which is awesome, btw—is that most of these shots seem to really fit. Thor in the woods? Of course, it’s practically home. Batman’s hanging out in the mouth of the batcave, Superman probably flies out to gorgeous mountain vistas to be alone with his thoughts every other week, Iron Man probably flies past gorgeous mountain vistas while blaring rock music and avoiding his thoughts about as often—
And then there’s Spiderman. And Spiderman mostly looks like he just got done with a fight that unexpectedly stranded him in the middle of nowhere, and now he’s sitting by the side of the only dirt road for miles, waiting for the bus that comes once a day to take him back to the city. Hoping that they’ll excuse the fact that he doesn’t have enough change if he rides on the roof.
Which is pretty much just right for the character of Spiderman, so good job, photographer. Well done.

Check out what happened to the mass post editor!


mass edit your QUEUE!

mass edit your DRAFTS!

wanna BACKDATE shit? you can do that!

lock that shit down as PRIVATE? you can do that too!

how about adding CAPTIONS to your photos? or LINKS to the source? also possible!

 want to only see ASKS? how about everything EXCEPT asks?

everything TAGGED #i can’t even? what about JUST the posts WITHOUT tags? it’s a brave new world!

or do you want to MASS-SELECT posts based on various criteria? (holy shit we’re in the FUTURE now!)


adjust GUTTER size!

(possible photoset fix??? idk)

tell it to STOP LOADING!

(because not all of us have hella powerful cpus okay)

ever posted too early? now you can REPUBLISH as a draft!

(idk what that means exactly but it sure sounds cool, doesn’t it?)


look what happens when you start typing in the tags in the “ADD TAGS” field! cool, right?

>.< unfortunately, you can’t select the tag you want and have it populate it for you, you still have to type the whole thing. BUT! now you can be CONSISTENT with your tags!

(if. that matters to you. i recognize i am a little weird about my tags.)
