- Just because I ship Johnlock does not mean I believe in TJLC. It also doesn’t mean I don’t. It just means I like Johnlock.
- Discussing TJLC doesn’t mean I believe in it. Believing in it doesn’t mean I want it to be true. Not believing in it doesn’t mean I don’t want it to be true.
- Regardless of whether or not I believe in it, that is my opinion and it doesn’t have to match anyone else’s.
- Whether or not someone believes in TJLC does not have to mean a single thing about their opinions of queer representation or homosexuality.
Some people believe it’s true and others don’t. GREAT. Let’s all have happy dissenting opinions together. Why are people still fighting over this. Fandom does not need to be this hard.

museumofmodernerotica asked: Maybe this is a crazy question, but how did Europeans know what Africans looked like? I know that some of the paintings here are of North Africans/Middle Easterners, but others clearly depict people born south of the Sahara. I've heard of Prester John but I never imagined that medieval Europeans were aware that Prester John would have had brown skin. Am I missing something?
Like. There are a lot of things I could say here. But I’m just going to do my best to answer your question, and the answer is either very simple or very complicated, depending on your current point of view.
1. “They” knew what people with brown skin looked like because people with brown skin had been there literally THE ENTIRE TIME. Some (and father back, ALL) of “them” had brown skin themselves.
2. “People with Brown Skin” and “Europeans” are not separate and mutually exclusive groups.
3. No matter how far back you go, the mythical time that you’re looking for, when all-white, racially and culturally isolated Europe was “real”, will continue to recede from your grasp until it winkles out the like imaginary place it is.
We can just keep going back. In every area, from all walks of life, rich and poor, kings and peasants, artists and iconoclasts, before there were countries and continents, before there were white people.
The time when “EVERYONE” in Europe was White does not exist. They knew what people with brown skin looked like because they were there. They knew what “Africans” looked like because they were there, and they weren’t “they”, they were us, or you. I think what you’re missing is something that never existed.
corpsereviver2 asked: The bright summery pink shade of polish on my toes is called "snog". It is cheerful and pretty and makes me think of you.
OMG YES! Have two perfumes I adore immensely, but when I actually WEAR them, thanks to body chemistry, they start smelling like that perfume sprayed on bread dough. :p Another one that I was all ‘meh’ about ends up smelling awesome on me. *shrug*
They spray perfume on bread dough? Fuck me if people walked around smelling like bread. I’d be a menace to society.
And god. I cannot remember the last time I wore actual perfume?? but my pH has always done horrible things to most perfumes. High oil content, or just oils for me.
Hee hee! Doesn’t it sound (and look) like a bad joke? Thing is, so I’ve heard, it works amazingly. But it’s not the sort of thing you’re going to whip out and show all your buds, like in an infomercial. *snirk*
I’m wearing the Silky Underwear fresh, about to walk Abby dog. Seeing as this is between my legs, it is kinda important that I am comfortable with how it smells. ffs.
How does the anti-monkey butt smell?
