I decided to make a masterpost of all the must have resources for dealing with layoutgate 2k14 or whatever we’re calling it.

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

heads up to all graphic/gif makers: the new dimensions don’t work either (via odnson)

why you should continue to make gifs and graphics at the old dimensions (via me)

tumblr support confirms: tumblr dashboard does not support files wider than 500px (via kyleharts)

why tumblr is doing this (via maisiewilliams)

HOW TO FIX YOUR DASHBOARD/BLOG

to fix your dashboard and make gifs and edits look not blurry or cropped on your dashboard install Stylish (chrome, firefox) and then this userstyle

if you have xkit, the xkit guy is also reportedly working on fixing/reverting the dashboard, he just needs time.

to fix your blog [no blurry, cropped, or chopped off gifs] use this script in your theme code (via jumpingpuddles) note: there are other bits of code floating around to fix your theme, but this is the only one i’ve found that fixes everything.

HOW TO PROTEST

use the contact form on the tumblr help page (to get the contact form, type “contact” in the box and a Contact Support button will appear at the bottom)

or email tumblr support at support@tumblr.com

the guardian imagines what historical figures might look like today. my personal favourite is shakespeare, reincarnated as a shoreditch hipster.

but can you imagine how’d he’d sound a loft party? 

"I’m going to subvert the whole, like, narrative ideal by telling you upfront that these two, like, teenagers are going to fall in love and die, and then do it. So there’s no more hiding in the words. Stark, yeah? And then, I think I’ll hide a sonnet in their big scene together, right? It’ll be subversive, because only, you know, people who are up on sonnets will get it…..what? No, she’s thirteen—a little edgy but that’s art, man. Art.”

i am loving hipster shakespeare
A++

This explains so much. Hipster Shakespeare drank too many experimental microbrews one night:
"Will, we need this bit done, buddy. We’ve got rehearsal in ten minutes."
"Shit, I dunno. Uh. Exit."
"Just… "Exit"?"
"Exit, pursued by a bear."
"Will, come on."
"I think I left my LUNGS in that bucket, Robbie, okay? Exit, pursued by a bear. It’s surrealism. Man versus wild. Whatever. Get me a Gatorade and a shit ton of Advil, and maybe I can work out what I’m going to do with the statue."

Let’s stop HIV in New York City

If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.

If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

 

Daily PrEP

PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.

Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

 

Emergency PEP

If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.

You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.

WHOA KIDS.

I just found THIS AMAZING WEBSITE called Trans Birth.  It is “a directory created to connect trans* and gender non-conforming people and their families to midwives, OBGYNs, and doulas who provide welcoming care to our communities.”

WHHHAAATTTT???  I’m sending them a blurb as we speak so that I can be listed on their directory.

Providers - sign up!!  It’s quick and easy.  Let’s make this an awesome resource for trans people!!

Gather round kids while I explain this manipulation tactic that men perpetually try to use and why it’s bullshit.

If someone is openly showing interest in you by making disparaging or disappointed comments about your age, they’re trying to put you on the defensive. This guy wants me to try to quell his discomfort, to bring up that I’m only a month shy of 20, etc. - he wants me to try to prove myself to him, that I’m mature and adult enough for a man like him.

His goal is to establish a power imbalance right off the bat. If we were to date, I would constantly be on the defensive, constantly striving to be an equal, constantly trying to prove my “adult” credentials. Anything he says or does or wants from this point on that I object to would just be seen as a strike against my age, proof that he was right and that I’m not mature enough for him. This is how SO MANY men pressure younger individuals (primarily women and girls) into situations and relationships they aren’t comfortable with. If he truly thought I was too young for him, he wouldn’t have messaged me. This is a very calculated move, and it’s fucking gross.

Adult relationships with age gaps are completely fine, but only if all parties view each other as equals. If someone is trying to set you up in a way that ensures that’s never a possibility, run far away.

YES. 3liza thoughts?

In practically every adult relationship I’ve seen where a significant age gap exists, when the two people started talking and connected on an emotional level, they weren’t aware of the age gap. Usually they then discover the age gap in a manner like: “Oh yeah sorry I can’t hang tonight I have A-level revision.” Wait, what!? A-levels!? You’re a teenager!?” and then they’ve had this whole emotional conundrum because they really like each other but weren’t aware and start panicking about legal matters and how society might see them and if it’s appropriate. This kind of thing happens and can’t be helped.

If somebody starts flirting with you and you’re underage or a teenager and they’re well into their twenties and they’re clearly aware of that from the start, be suspicious. Even if it’s legal in your country (16 is legal in the UK) speaking as a 29 year old, anybody in their mid-late twenties who deliberately looks for teenagers, even if they’re technically legal, is probably really immature and/or on the lookout for somebody they can dominate emotionally and take advantage of or at least not have to make an effort to have their shit together for or is such a loser that nobody their own age respects or will date them. Don’t let them manipulate you with lines like “you’re not like other people your age” (practically everybody is willing to believe they’re not like other people and keen to prove it), or “people my age are so boring, I relate better to people your age” (raises sympathy for poor adult stuck in boring grey adult world where everybody is boring while they are sill young at heart and can really relate to you, you vibrant exciting young thing, so it’s like they’re not really 25 at all so it’s okay! …ugh), absolutely do not let them sucker you in with expensive stuff they can buy you because they have a job. If a 25 year old guy is deliberately chasing up an 18 year old, you should definitely be asking yourself, “what about this guy makes him unwilling to date women his own age or unsuccessful at doing so?”

Stay safe!!

…and like, that always creeped me out and seemed manipulative, but I could never quite explain why

airstyledraconos:

The general response I get when discussing my place on the asexual spectrum is incredulity. Often well-meaning, but the barrage of questions are laid at my feet as a challenge and I am expected to take on the burden of countering those attacks which are veiled within curiosity. As a group, we are expected not only to defend our non-heteronormative sexuality, but also the reality of our existence, even within the queer community. After all, why should our “lack of a sexuality” matter?

"Asexuals, demisexuals, and aromantics are just late bloomers and lonely virgins whining for attention. They don’t face any of the struggles like the real queer community—”

Asexuals are expected to prove a negative to be considered valid. Until we have met every single person in the world, we are told that there is the possibility that we will “find the right person.”

Demisexuals are told that their sexuality is irrelevant once they’ve “found the right person” and that they were gay/straight/bi/pan all along.

We are constantly told that we are doomed to be unhappy without another (as if sex is necessary for romance and as if a person cannot live a worthwhile life without romance. Or, in the case of aromantics, that sex without romance is something amoral and unfulfilling).

"What a shame—", "What a waste of a beautiful woman—", "You don’t know what you’re missing—", "You’re just picky—" STOP.

If we are not sex-repulsed, we are told we are not asexual.

If we are sex-repulsed, we are told that we are broken or traumatized.

If we were traumatized, we are told that our asexuality is something that we should seek to fix.

^^^Take a moment to reflect on that trinity of bullshit.

Asexuals can be victims of “corrective rape" and other forms of sexual assault due to the idea that we can be fixed with sex and that our bodies’ arousal response overrides the validity of our sexuality and the need for consent. This is an assault not only on our bodies, but on our right to an identity.

When I revealed my sexuality to an inebriated friend, he just thought I needed to be kissed properly to be “fixed.” Luckily, he took “no” for an answer.

Asexuals are told that we are outside the queer community even though heteronormativity tells us that we are alone in our lack of sexual interest. It isolates and intimidates us with pressure to conform. We are all harmed by it.

Before learning about asexuality, I was convinced that my complete disinterest in sex and lack of reaction to porn meant that I was a prude or was somehow less human than my peers. My younger self could have benefited greatly from the ace community.

Finding a name for my identity gave me a sense of peace, rightness, and validity. It’s not just a trendy name, it’s a label with resonance. That’s why so many people are “suddenly” coming out as asexual. It was the term that we didn’t know we needed until we heard it. Our terminology may be new to the mainstream, but does not make us any less real.

danielle-writes:

So there’s this thing, National Novel Writing Month, where a person writes a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. These people are referred to as crazy. I am one of them.

And there’s this guy, Chris Baty. Baty helped make NaNoWriMo a thing. He even wrote a book about it. A book about writing a book. It’s meta. In this book he gave advice on just how to write a book in 30 days. Lots and lots of advice. Because writing is hard.

Really hard.

Really, REALLY hard.

But this guy, Baty? He’s pretty smart about it. One of the things he talks about is to know your weakness as a writer. I have a bunch, but the main one is getting distracted by internetz.

See, the thing is, I try. I really do. I try to research all the things and stuff I need to research before I write, but sometimes I’ll be going on my merry way and BOOM I forgot what I named that hospital. Or BOOM I don’t know what the parts to a horse’s saddle is. So I go to Google and Google tells me. But it never stops there. I always go, “While I’m here, I might as well check [insert your time-wasting social media site of choice].” And then, BOOM - an hour has passed and I haven’t touched what I was writing.

This is no good. I need to focus and not break my momentum while I’m writing. Stopping to open a browser and searching on Google breaks my momentum. So what do I do? Research even more? As much as I’d like to think I can predict everything that happens in my plot, some things I just can’t foresee. And that’s a good thing! No, it’s great! That’s one of the best things about writing, when I’m surprised when X, Y, or Z happens. 

Instead of extensive, mind-numbing research, I do this. Whenever I find myself stalling to think of a name or an adjective or literally anything else, I write elephant instead. Elephant. And then go on my merry way.

It felt really stupid when I started. The worse is when I read what I’ve written and forgot that I slapped on an elephant in the middle of an intense scene.

But it works!

I promise, I wouldn’t do it if it didn’t.

And when I edit, all I do is find each “elephant” with the search option of whatever word-processor I’m using and insert it’s rightful word - the well-researched-after-I’ve-written-the-book word. I’ve told a few people about my Elephant Technique, and I knew a few people who use different words: cantaloupe, poodle, febreze. It all works. 

BOOM, distraction gone. Please enjoy BMO dancing as you go forth and write all the things.

And don’t you fucking take it away from them.

like probably irrelevant in 99% of cases but also? if the comfort object is a stuffed animal and lacks a name you find suitably name-like, do not fucking rename it and insist on referring to it by its ‘new name’ all the time despite how clearly upsetting it is, you fucking asshole

How a non-ace person should react when a friend / family member tells you they are ace:

1. Remember that there is a whole myriad of relationships any person can have. Not all of them are sexual. Not all of them are romantic. And not all of them are for everyone.

2. Thank the person for sharing with you. Be sure to let them know they can (re. should) slap you upside the head if you say/do anything that ever makes them feel uncomfortable. If you don’t know much about different orientations, you may have questions. That’s fine, but these things should be answered in a relaxed conversation. Not an interrogation because you think they’re “just confused” *, “haven’t met the right person yet” *, or “are going to want children when they’re older.” *

(*These statements should be responded to in the only appropriate way; a swift punch in the neck. Cause that’s what happens when someone is a disrespectful asscravat.)

3. Ask if they would like to get some milkshakes (or other favorite treat of choice) because that stuff is delicious and the friend / family member you know and love is the exact same person they were ten minutes ago.

Sincerely,
A non-ace person that will punch anyone in the neck if they make my platonic soulmate uncomfortable

Hi everyone

The clocks are changing soon

This means my dash is about to be full of posts saying “To people with dissociation: don’t worry, you didn’t lose track of time! The clocks changed!”

Which is lovely to see, because it means people care

but

you must include a region and a date in these posts or they are useless

the clocks go back on different dates in different countries. in the spring, i saw multiple USA-centric posts reassuring me that the clocks had changed, when that wasn’t the case in my country for another 2 weeks. i spent two days (because the posts kept coming out of people’s queues even after the day when the clocks changed!) extremely confused about what was true and whether i was hallucinating or misinterpreting the posts or the calendars.

so please, do make a post like that, but include your country and today’s date in the post.

an example of an appropriate and helpful post:

hey, to people in the USA with dissociation or memory problems: the clocks went back on [date], so don’t worry, you didn’t lose track of time!

another example:

hello! i’d just like everyone in the UK to know that the clocks went back today ([date]), so don’t worry if you’re confused that the time seems to be different, because it is! please reblog this for your followers with dissociation or memory problems!

this goes for the clock changes in both the spring and autumn. thank you!
