aw yeah memes

1. Reply to this post with I AM A PRETTY PRETTY PONY and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee!

1.) ...I... actually do not know the implications of this one. It's from Nedroid, which is a lovely webcomic, but as for what I use it for... It's rather vague, actually. Like, it can be when I'm being silly in my demands for things, or it can just be an expression of. Just. Absurdity. Or conflict. Or passion. Yes. I don't even know.

2.) More Nedroid! This is the icon that I use for when something AWESOME has happened and only Beartato can sufficiently express my glee.

3.) I needed to make this icon almost IMMEDIATELY after A:CC #2 came out. When Cheung draws faces tiny, they usually consist of a variety of dots, and that can make for some fabulous faces. Especially when those faces belong to a Mr. Billy Kaplan. That is the face of one who is taking a long, hard look at their life. With tiny, tiny dot eyes. That, or "derp." In short, it is my "what is this I don't even" icon.

4.) This is the icon I use when I am talking about ~romantic things, and comes from a Star Trek comic by oxboxer who is super amazing. It is also semi-ironic given a certain source of ire in one of my other main fandoms involving a certain couple one member of which couple having a badassery fetish yessss but I am not naming names or anything, nope.

5.) Again, from a TOS oxboxer comic. This is by far my sassiest icon. And Mr. Spock's sass is the superior sass, so.

6.) This icon is made from art by the ever wonderful ormery and it encapsulates everything that is wonderful about the Young Avengers fandom. Because it is an awesome and fun-loving fandom and seriously, how do you not love Team Bantering Bickering Badass Couple riding unicorns with such glee. AND YET. And yet. Even when the fandom produces wonderful things like the entire cast riding a unicorn, before we know it we get actual canon that is somehow just as ridiculous.

badass on a unicorn

that dog is taking a long, hard look at its life up until now

excuse me

Star Trek

I would like a word with you

regarding this:

Not only have you got me shipping Spock and Kirk when I had no intention of doing so when I decided to watch your classic 60's self on YouTube on a whim. NOT ONLY do you have me immensely confused about how attractive I find both of those individuals however much I keep reminding myself that they are about eighty years old at this point. NOT. ONLY. THAT. But you expect me to believe that that is an alien in Kirk's arms and not a dog wrapped in a section of a fur rug with an ice cream cone on its head.

You are not fooling anyone, Star Trek. Not anyone at all.

I got curious and listened to a Clay Aiken song for the first time, because I've never actually heard the dude sing.

I am using this icon because it's my face right now and it's kinda cheering me up

If you want to skip the IRL related emo, you might wanna pass over this one, y'all.Collapse )

swoon, ooh mister wiccan ooh

t-they're all so pretty

People need to stop making awesome Children's Crusade icons, okay. Because I want all of them.

I can't draw too well lately and it is disconcerting. /tortured echoing sigh

It seems I cannot draw anything that is not scribbly? I don't understand it.

-Roxy is the name of every lip
-We believe in the so-called beach sex

-I can offer a hug to warm you feel my love for you
-2 Add a junk box
-We are please please see waving from such great heights they have
-Fat bottom girls, you go around the world are sharing

Oh yes. We believe in the so-called beach sex.
We do indeed.
swoon, ooh mister wiccan ooh


so uh

it probably won't come up again

but apparently checking my phone and seeing that Allan Heinberg responded to me on Twitter is one of those things that causes me to make undignified squawking noises in public

I sure hope nothing backfires

degredation is the finest form of flattery- wait what

So I've been going out walking and biking a lot more, going to our (very small town's) downtown and biking to our library and such. I like getting the exercise, I like getting the books, everything is all good. Except what's kind of a niggling annoyance is that every time I go out at least one guy decides "durr hurr I am going to beep at you or whistle or shout things at you that will make you very uncomfortable HOW DOES THAT SOND." And usually I just sort of brush it off, because they clearly have the social skills of a rotted banana so. Whatever.

Except I'm with my older brother- my usually classic, over-protective and understanding older brother- after getting my hair cut the other day. And when he passes us, this guy beeps at me. This time I looked up to see the guy's face, and I kind of wish I hadn't. Because not only is he my Dad's age (if not older) but he's giving me this look that made me want to throw up- this shit-eating, eyebrow waggling creeper grin. And so he passes by and I get pissed right the fuck off. Because I realize that I'm sick of it. I'm sick of the sense of entitlement that (SOME) men have towards women that they're able to shout at them and sexualize them just because they're there. That I'm sick of having to feel like I'm doing something wrong or that I need to "cover up" more or something. And I start ranting about this towards my brother and he goes, "Yeah, okay, Miss Feminist." All dismissive.

... what

I told him that he was damn right that I was a feminist, and that I'm sorry if I was upset that a stranger my father's age was viewing me and treating me like a sex object. And he says, "No, he wasn't treating you as a sex object, he was treating you as someone he finds attractive."


Oh, I'm fucking sorry, but that's supposed to make me happy? That's supposed to make it okay? Yeah, no, he's undressing you with his eyes and shouting at you from a parking lot, but that's because he likes you! And who cares if he has almost entirely gray hair and a debatable amount of teeth? At least it means you must have a pretty face! And it's even better if he's your age, that makes it even more acceptable, right? That must make it just fine! After all, you wimmin folks're always worrying about whether a man thinks that you're PRETTY or not, right? Being objectified by a complete stranger is a good thing! It's no big deal!

... just. just fuck you.

It's not even what they say sometimes, or what they beep. Usually it's the typical "HAY BAY-BEEEE" crap. It's not that. It's when I catch the look on their face and I know exactly what it is they're saying without saying and what they're doing, what they feel they have a right to do, and everything in my chest and my gut goes kind of hollow.

No, it's not flattering. It's not validating. It's not charming. It's doesn't make me feel good. It's humiliating, it's invasive, it's rude, and sometimes it's fucking scary and can leave you feeling really, really vulnerable and make you want to stay inside for a really long time.
