  1. This thing turned up in my Dreamwidth subscription page. A comm that initially looked promising- a writing/art fest that would go toward promoting diversity. They even split sexual and romantic orientations. The misstep here (and misstep is putting things lightly) is that they decided to put in a BLEEPing points system for participating. Dead serious, here's a link. I feel that cheapens the message, and am seriously considering a calling out for the admin, and an angry rant on my personal Dreamwidth journal.

      Wow, what the fuck... Yeah, that's definitely no good. Yikes.

      Wow yes do that. It's really f**ked. I get that the idea is to motivate people into putting more diversity but that's really wrong. You can't say that some sexual orientations or romantic orientations deserve less points than others. Strangely it mostly bothers me for mental disorder. Because I guess for the other things I can understand a bit it's about representation but for mental disorder it's honestly insulting it's like saying someone with OCD, anxiety or PTSD struggles less than someone with an eating disorder (and I have all four so I am in a position to say they're all equally making my life hell.) It also varies a lot on the level someone can have a really bad case of OCD in the way it really stop them from functioning healthily when I for example doesn't have it in that form. Same for anxiety. My best friend have really frequent panic attacks and social anxiety when for me it's somatic meaning it creates physical pain and insomnia (and other things) from all the stress that I interiorize. And it's the same for physical disability btw who are they to say that amputation is better than epilepsy. That's so weird. If they want to give people kudos for putting more diversity that's great but put everything on the same score. You can't just judge what deserves more points. I completely get that you're angry. And you really need to at least explain how this is so wrong because I think the author really don't realize the issue because they're stuck in their perspective and how in their heads they're really trying to do their best to motivate people to include more diversity.

    What Are You Listening To/Post A Song

    Listening to "Monster" by Imagine Dragons, identifying with the lyrics due to my mindset, not so much the chorus.

    Share your Talents!

    I need to get on that fanfic writing! Erm...does it matter what the fandom is for the fanfic? I would like to vid too, but I can't afford to right now... As for fic, I should crack down on writing that team as family/family of choice Weiss-centric RWBY fic.

    Share your Talents!

    Talents? I don't really have any right now. I do want to write song parodies and fanfiction though. If anyone has a song they want parodied, feel free to tell me. As for fanfiction, I plan on writing mostly gen (no romance) fanfiction.

    Aromantic Character Headcanons

    A character I headcanon as aromantic is Ruby Rose from the web series RWBY. I just don't see her being romantically involved with anyone.

    What Are You Listening To/Post A Song

    I'm listening to a (rather demonic sounding) cover of "Shiny" from the Disney movie Moana right now.

    I guess I should have read the thread more carefully! Oh well, at least the explanation's up now, that's something at least...

    I can answer that. NoTP is a piece of fandom slang. It's derived from fandom term "OTP" which stands for "One True Pairing", meaning the one romantic pairing the specific fan likes over any other pairing. NoTP, in that context means the opposite-a pairing that the fan will never ever support. Another derivative is BrOTP, for platonic pairs. Does this help?

    I don't really do too much shipping these days, mainly because I'm tired of the way the louder parts of fandom treat it (all the incredibly petty character derailing/demonizing/bashing...). Another factor was realizing that I wasn't really shipping some things because I liked the idea of the characters being romantically involved, but to spite shippers of rival pairs. So I figured maybe it was time to get some distance from it.

    Fanfiction...

    I feel your pain. Sometimes I feel like people get so caught up in writing their favorite romance they completely miss the point of a character or the book/show/movie/whatever they are writing fanfiction about. As for finding it, putting "gen fanfiction" into the search features at Livejournal or Dreamwidth can help, Archive of our own does have filters, but they aren't entirely reliable.
  14. Hello. I came here looking for a relatively safe place to try and figure myself out (and to stop lurking). So...
