Not to Be Taken Seriously

21,899 notes


Probably the worst types of people are the ones that shut you down to make themselves look cooler than you, for example if you get excited and squeal and they’re like “woah what was that..” or if you talk loudly because you’re passionate about something and they say “relax dude wow” and then give a look… Like fuck off stop trying to act so cool and collected. You don’t seem more mature you just seem fucking boring and monotonously placid.

hey guys, I just had a pretty cool idea. you know how next week (october 26- november 1) is asexual awareness week? it is INCREDIBLY important that everyone, asexual AND allosexual, makes it a Huge Freaking Deal. let’s make it blow up. let’s make it so that next year is asexual PRIDE, not AWARENESS.

The Origin of Love

Aristophanes in Plato’s Symposium suggests that human form was not always as it is today. There was a time where humans were born with their partners as a whole. Spherical in shape, with four arms, four legs and two faces on either side of a single head. 

There were three sexes back then; the male-male, female-female, and male-female. Referred to as the children of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Such was their arrogance, they dared to challenge the Gods. So Zeus, in his anger, hailed up a storm and with his lighting, ripped through the flesh of the children of the Sun, Moon and Earth; splitting them into two, each becoming a distinct entity. Since then, human beings have been running around in panic, trying to shove themselves back together, searching for their lost counterparts in a desire to be whole again.

That’s beautiful.
