Gay as can be! (Sept 26th 2013)I've loved women and I'm not scared to say it.
I know that it's not common but I'm proud of it.
I may not blend in a crowd but not being normal wasn't an option.
I've accepted that I'm gay, it's not a fashion statement.
I wear my pride and I will not hide.
Not behind a smoke screen, no ceiling will stop me.
I will be me and I will be gay.
I will be happy and you can not stop me.
Well-written FanfictionsWe all know how difficult it is to find very good, well-written fanfictions. Which is why I'd like to share with you some great fanfictions I found.
This one is the one that got me to like AUs! Before I didn't care about AUs that much, I preferred canon stories, but I decided to give it a try, and was pleasantly surprised! Even though it's an AU, the characters are still really in character; the story is really well paced, you don't get bored by it, it keeps your attention until the end.
It's a short one-shot. This one is pretty odd, but that's probably what gives it its charm.
Want to see a little Sesshoumaru learning to become the great dog-demon that he is? Then this fic is for you!
Sesshoumaru and Rin playing together. Now that is something to see, isn't i
Famous cats =^-^=I discovered two famous cats recently and wanted to share them with you!
The first one is an American cat called Stubbs. He was the Mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska for 20 years.
The second one is a Japanese cat called Tama. She was a station master. After she died, she was deified as a goddess because she brought prosperity to Japan's economy.
(To those who read Noragami: she's the cat god mentioned in it. )
Essay on OppressionI heard about the Charlottesville incident in the US.  Before I start the essay, I would just like to mention that every country is having their own crisis right now and that these things are happening world wide. There is the Israel-Palestine conflict , the conflict in Syria , the terrorist attacks all over Europe , and many more. I can't mention all of them, there are too many conflicts going on. That is why I will be talking about oppression in a general sense and won't be specific since it applies to all of these conflicts.
Dislaimer: I found an interesting essay that talks about oppression
Transgender OlympianWe have a transgender olympic runner, Caster Semenya, from South Africa. Here is a picture of her:
It's great that she get's to participate in the games, because it shows how much we've progressed. But there is also a slight dilemma too; I think it's also unfair to the other girls. I think they should give her a slight disadvantage, like starting a bit later, because she has the body of a man. It's not a question of gender, it's a question of physique; if you're a giant for example and you compete against of couple of dwarfs, you should also have a disadvantage of some sort because your body is different. That is why there are no mixed games in the first place. (because women's bodies are different from men's.) That's also the reason why we have Olympic games specifically for people with disabilities too, because when your body is different, you should adapt the game.
That is my thought. What are your thoughts on this?
Then again, she's not first all the time:
It looks like
A Good Time to Be Bad at Ice Skating (RusPru)The winter Olympics had yet to begin and Russia already felt the pain of the jabs that were being thrown at him. He had had to endure everyone criticizing his policies, his government, and his preparation. The Olympics were supposed to be the moment for the home country to shine, but it wasn't feeling that way to Russia. His stress needed an outlet and there was a very obvious way to do it.
Russia would never express his love for certain sports to anyone else. There was certain strangeness to sharing something like that with a different country, something human about it. It was the custom of countries to keep a considerable distance from the other countries by communicating only professionally and in a capacity that only had to due with their identities as countries. Anything personal was intimate, even a real human name was reserved for people with a close bond. Chatting about sports and hobbies was almost completely unknown, because that was like opening your human heart to someone e
