Baby’s First OTP Feels: a Tale of Regret


Ahahah oh man an amazing thing that actually happened??? 
NO Baby girl you are too young for this life and pain.


Her mom thinks it’s hilarious and gave me permission to make a comic out of it? It’s awesome that she has all the Disney movies at her house, and they didn’t know about Miyazaki before! Now they do and watch it with her!

I let her watch Totoro weeks after that! She got really into it too!

BBC NOT IMPRESSED WITH MOFFAT'S DESTRUCTION OF WHO HISTORY

BBC producers are questioning whether executive producer Steven Moffat has run out of ideas and should hand the reins to someone new. Might be giving him the axe after Season 8.

I might start watching Dr Who again if Moffat leaves.

don’t you think he looks tired?

Steven Moffat is brilliant. He has brought to life some of the scariest monsters and most fascinating ideas.

He turned the “Doctor who?" running joke into "The First Question, the oldest question in the universe, hidden in plain sight." He created terrifying creatures out of things so ordinary we hardly acknowledge them.

…But, it’s probably best he move on soon. The evil genius seems to have burnt out most of his ideas, and we don’t need any more recycling of past episodes and storylines.

(He’s also kind of a biased prick about various thing, but I’m not going to go into that now. It is, however, part of why I refer to him as an evil genius.)

In other words: Mr. Moffat, we love you, but get out.

LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

Someone walks over to our step to say hello. She bends at the waist, looming over Brooke.

Brooke doesn’t look up. She doesn’t stop stripping her stick.

Dig. Pull. Dig. Pull.

Our visitor reaches out a hand and cups it below Brooke’s chin.

I freeze. Oh God.

She uses the hand to pull Brooke’s head up by the jaw.

A thin line of panic starts somewhere deep. I know that Brooke is going to scream. 5,4,3,2 …

She does scream, but not in the way that I expect.

“I HATE BEING TOUCHED!!” she shouts.

I am flabbergasted.

Words. Self-awareness. Communication. Self-advocacy.

I know the sentence will need to be reformatted. But I am drenched in pride.

I turn to Brooke. “Great job telling us how you feel, Brooke. Really great job.” I hope that my words send a message to both of them. I stand with my girl.

Our visitor is undaunted.

“I just want to see that beautiful face,” she says. “Lift up for me.”

I am stymied by etiquette. By deference to our host. By generational difference. By convention.

Brooke is not.

She lifts her head as instructed. And growls.

This has probably been posted before, but this knocks me for a loop - a blogger and her autistic daughter had the opportunity to meet Suzanne Wright of Autism Speaks, and this is how one of the noisiest voice in the autism community treated her daughter.

What knocks me for a loop isn’t so much Wright’s awful behavior. It’s the unbelievable strength and self-advocacy that the blogger Jess’s daughter, Brooke, shows when someone violates her personal space. It’s her mother backing her up for making sure someone knows that they are not permitted to touch her unless she says it’s okay. Honestly, it’s heartening. I hope Wright felt real fucking uncomfortable. She should.

We know you’re all probably tired of all these Patreon ads but this one’s a bit different. This one is for an entire group as emergency funds, because lord knows with around 20 people something is always bound to go wrong for at least one of them.

So if you’re always debating on who to support on Patreon because there are so many people out there, this one is actually made for many artists, writers, and voice actors who may be in need.

Please spread the word and watch even if you’re not interested in Patreon, because hey, it’s still a fun animatic with great voice actors and Doctors :)

an important factual presentation by me

All the facts.

… Cleopatra is actually a terrible example to use for this, though? 

Because Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, who were Greeks. Usually considered white. And in keeping with Egyptian tradition, Pharaohs married their siblings.

Now, that doesn’t mean Cleopatra was necessarily 100% Greek ethnically, because the Ptolemaic Pharaohs also had concubines and secondary wives who were native Egyptians. We don’t know all of Cleopatra’s lineage - we’re not even exactly sure who her mother was - so it’s easily possible (even likely) that she did have some native Egyptian heritage. (You can read a very good article about this here.)

However, Cleopatra is still a terrible example to use here because she was mixed Greek and Egyptian at most, and we can’t actually prove that she had any Egyptian heritage at all. (Again, it’s very likely that she did - but likelihood is not proof.) The only thing we know about her ethnicity for certain is that she had Greek heritage - which is hardly helping the OP’s point here.

And there’s no reason to use Cleopatra as your example here when there were literally bunches of dynasties before the Ptolemies who were of 100% Egyptian heritage. I know Cleopatra’s probably the most famous Egyptian ruler, but you could have used Nefertiti or Tut (both 18th dynasty) or Rameses the Great (19th dynasty), all of whom are quite well known and all of whom were from indigenous Egyptian dynasties. (Not to mention the admittedly less well-known but incredibly awesome Hatshepsut, lady Pharaoh extraordinaire.)

I mean, the argument here - which is a good and true one - is that the Ancient Egyptians were not white. But using a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty as an example just undermines that point.
