Most of our childhood is stored not in photos, but in certain biscuits, lights of day, smells, textures of carpet…
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
This needs to stop. Like, seriously. I am so disgusted right now I don’t even know where to start. It’s people like this that just butcher the fun out of cosplaying. There are probably hundreds of “bad cosplay” blogs out there and I just don’t understand why people do this kind of shit. I scrolled through their posts of lovely cosplayers whose main objective was to have fun with something they enjoyed. It just hurt me seeing photos of cosplayers smiling and being in character and then this blog from the pit of hell brings it on here and insults them.
Let me make something clear: This is cyberbullying. I don’t want to hear anyone say “No, it’s criticism!” because that’s bullshit. This is not the kind of criticism cosplayers are supposed to get. Haven’t you ever heard of constructive criticism? This is not anywhere near that. This is bullying. You’re not helping the cosplayer at all. Don’t try to say “It will help them improve.” Um, no. The only thing it will help them do is make them feel like shit.
I know we can’t end this permanently, because it’s the internet, and some people just don’t care. But what you can do is find the most active “bad cosplay” blogs and report them to the tumblr staff. Make this shit aware. And this doesn’t just happen on tumblr. It happens on other sites like 4chan, reddit, Facebook… everywhere! Even IN REAL LIFE. You know how many people I’ve seen at conventions make fun of other cosplayers like we’re back in middle school? If you’re a con-goer, and you see that shit happening, confront them! Also, giving nice compliments at a convention, no matter how small it is, can really make someone’s day. Seriously, just saying something like “I love your makeup!” “I love that dress!” “Your cosplay is amazing!” can really make someone’s day. You never know if they’re starting out or if they’ve been doing it for a long time. Either way, it makes them feel good. And it motivates them to keep moving forward in such a fun hobby.
Cosplay is for fun and good memories, not to insult. Let’s keep it that way.
This has pretty too less notesAll of my followers should reblog this because this needs to stop. No one makes blogs about making fun of extreme sports fans that dress up for their teams or anything like that. Quit targeting people who are just trying to have fun and are passionate about the things they love.
Yes but how do I know that you’re dating me for my heart and not for my international criminal empire
Because your international criminal empire is what you do, and not who you are.
That is so sweet I might just stab someone
“We built this tree house together in six weeks for under $4000. Reclaimed oak wood cutoffs make up the floor, and all windows and doors were salvaged. Inside is complete with a sleeping loft and composting toilet. Tree house. Wee house. You & Me house.”
This just ROCKS!
I want to see that episode. Where everyone calls them Sam and Dean and they’re all “no you don’t understand we’re actors OH GOD JARED GET THE SALT” and they just kind of have to survive while Misha flagrantly abuses his angel powers.
