I'm a cisgender bisexual 17 year old (hehe not for long) black female feminist with a lot of angst and a blog to express it.
I recognise white privilege, male privilege, cis privilege (of which I admittedly benefit from) biphobia, binarism, ableism, transphobia, misogyny, racism, monosexism, mental health stigma, prejudice and the patriarchy. These things need to change.
I don't recognise 'reverse racism/sexism', or cisphobia or 'monophobia'. Don't like it? You should find the unfollow button on the top right corner.
I'm giving you a chance to leave now. . .
Still here? (also enjoy the occasional laughs and Bow chicka wow wow. Also fandoms and artsy-hipster stuff and TRIGGER WARNING-because this is essentially my online diary and it ain't so happy cheery sunshine farts all the time)
#SaveInTheFlesh - TONIGHT - 10pm UK time
With just under 4 hours to go until this month’s #SaveInTheFlesh Social Media Sunday event, please excuse us for putting this is the tag one more time. As you know, there’s always new people looking in this tag and we want as many fans as possible to get involved :)
This is part of the much wider #SaveInTheFlesh campaign, and a way of getting the fandom together all at the same time so our voice is as loud as possible when we tell the BBC how much we love this show and how much we want series 3.
A huge thanks to everyone who has got behind this and the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign. If you’re just hearing about #SaveInTheFlesh, check the tag, this is how get you get involved today:
- We all create a post - this isn’t about likes and reblogs, this is a show of numbers. It could be a bit of fan art you’ve made, your favourite quote, a picture of your favourite character, or even just one of the images above
- Here are screencaps (series 1 - here is series 2) for images and here are the scripts for quotes. Or you can use this free to use fan art from ruvillie and these free to use gifs.
- In the caption, say how much you like the show and that you want another series
- Include mentions of BBC Three and BBC America - do this by typing “@ bbcthree” and “@ bbcamerica” in your post without the space. When it has worked, the @ will disappear and the text will become a link. The BBC’s tumblr accounts will then get a notification when you publish the post so they’ll see you love the show
- Tag it saveintheflesh
- Schedule it for 10pm UK time today
- Tweet #saveintheflesh at BBC Three and BBC America
- After creating your own tweet, retweet a few others from the tag a few minutes later
- Get conversations going with your fellow fans - tweet questions and answer other people’s using the hashtag. This will help get the numbers up and ensure the topic stays busy.
This particular campaign method is all about timing - by suddenly all talking about the show, we send a strong, united message of support to the BBC, and show the talented cast and crew that we love them and we’re behind them all the way.
Remember: TONIGHT July 10pm UK time

See you there, Redeemed!
There’s this Japanese story—about a woman who loved this man, her soulmate from childhood. Her parents made her marry a farmer. She ran off anyway with her soul mate and had kids with him. Years later, she comes back to her family and says: “I’m sorry I ran away.” And they say: “What? You’ve been here the whole time, you’ve been ill, in bed.” And she meets the other version of herself, this ghost, and she embraces this woman, and they become one person. And it’s this Buddhist parable, like: which one is the ghost?
Ever since I left you I thought that in some parallel ghost world we had kids we rowed by a canal…I thought part of me would be a ghost forever, without you. I was no longer real even when I was happy. But no, all along in real time you’ve gone on being you and I’ve gone on being me and yes I really love you enough to be ghosted by you my entire life but my God I left you for a reason.
there is nothing romantic about being a mess and flunking out of school and crying in therapist’s offices and i wish movies would stop romanticizing this kind of thing bc it’s actually very shitty
