Get back in there
luv writing lud bc i just “I’ve never met someone this unintentionally intimidating since the last time I looked in a mirror.”
Thanks! I got INFJ. Soo I’m Russia?
I am INTJ so apparently the things I excel at are plans and rationality and getting people to follow those plans.
Apparently, England is the rational one on the Hetalia cast.
Oh no I recognize this feeling.
This is the feeling of motivation waning this is the same feeling I had that meant it took months for November and December and January to get finished.
Hopefully it is not like that time I do not like that time.
There’s the TV Tropes page for it
There’s like three people on my dash who checked what characters are in their Meyers-Briggs Personality Type on TV Tropes and they all have Germany.
I’m stuck with England.
best thing to refresh my dash to oh my gooooooooooood
I could definitely live with being Atticus Finch.
The obstacle here is that I actively dislike To Kill A Mockingbird, so
Excellent graph! Fits most situations, if you don’t know whether to use 'tu' or 'vous', in French.
it also works for tu and usted in spanish :)
*québécois laughing uproariously in the distance*
I would like to add also good for formal and informal ‘you’ in Italian and German.
Basically any language where you have this split.
Hey there, anon.
I’m not autochorissexual (but I know 4seiji is; check out their tag), so I might not be the best person to answer this question. From what I’ve heard from other aces, your experience isn’t particularly uncommon, though! You might find some of this series useful. If any of my followers identify as autochorissexual and have additional advice or resources for the nice anon, please feel free to chime in!
My understanding is that having sex will not change whether you experience sexual attraction or not. So if your uncertainty concerns whether having sex will change your feelings or make them more transparent, from what I’ve heard from other folks, it probably won’t.
Something to ask yourself: In what ways do you find other people attractive? Is it aesthetic attraction? Romantic attraction? Sexual attraction? Platonic attraction? It might be good for you to think about how exactly you’re attracted to them, and what you want to do with that attraction. That might help you find some clarity.
The best general advice I can give you is if you don’t want to have sex, don’t have sex! You’re not required to have sex to validate your feelings. If you’re not attracted to people such that you want to do the genital tango, you don’t have to do the genital tango. And, you know, if your feelings change later, that’s fine! You can reassess then. But if right now you’re going, “Ehhh, don’t think I want to do this, but maybe I secretly do???” you don’t have to do it. If you do want to have sex or try it out or whatever, go for it! I just want to make sure you’re not feeling pressured into trying it “just to be sure.”
Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you, anon! I really hope things get less scary for you, because being scared is no fun at all.
The French Resistance (French: La Résistance française) is the name used to denote the collection of French resistance movements that fought against the Nazi German occupation of France and against the collaborationist Vichy régime during World War II. Résistance cells were small groups of armed men and women (called the Maquis in rural areas), who, in addition to their guerrilla warfare activities, were also publishers of underground newspapers, providers of first-hand intelligence information, and maintainers of escape networks that helped Allied soldiers and airmen trapped behind enemy lines. The men and women of the Résistance came from all economic levels and political leanings of French society, including émigrés; conservative Roman Catholics, including priests; and citizens from the ranks of liberals, anarchists, and communists.
The French Resistance played a significant role in facilitating the Allies’ rapid advance through France following the invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944, and the lesser-known invasion of Provence on 15 August, by providing military intelligence on the German defenses known as the Atlantic Wall and on Wehrmacht deployments and orders of battle. The Résistance also planned, coordinated, and executed acts of sabotage on the electrical power grid, transportation facilities, and telecommunications networks. It was also politically and morally important to France, both during the German occupation and for decades afterward, because it provided the country with an inspiring example of the patriotic fulfillment of a national imperative, countering an existential threat to French nationhood. The actions of the Résistance stood in marked contrast to the collaboration of the regime based at Vichy.
After the landings in Normandy and Provence, the paramilitary components of the Résistance were organized more formally, into a hierarchy of operational units known, collectively, as the French Forces of the Interior (FFI). Estimated to have a strength of 100,000 in June 1944, the FFI grew rapidly, doubling by the following month, and reaching approximately 400,000 by October of that year.Although the amalgamation of the FFI was, in some cases, fraught with political difficulties, it was ultimately successful, and it allowed France to rebuild the fourth-largest army in the European theatre (1.2 million men) by VE Day in May 1945.
the only states that actually exist are california and new york tbh the other states are just like freeways and stuff connecting california and new york

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -

THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.
