so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off
Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc.
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENING IN HONG KONG NOW
This video is made by Crixus Yuen, I don’t own anything.
I am a Hong Konger, and we hold a pro-democracy protest to fight for the freedom we deserved. However, Hong Kong Police uses violence including tear gas and GUN to stop us, even though we did it in a peaceful way. Lots of people got hurt, INCLUDING THE ELDERLY AND TEENAGERS.
WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHT AND WE DONT DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT
It doesnt matter if you are a Hong Konger or not. If you support us to fight for our freedom. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO.
Please take a moment out of your day to share the video to support the people of Hong Kong. They are shooting people with rubber bullets and tear gassing them. This is not okay.
What does it matter if mads sees a bunch of shitty drawings of him being fisted? Who fucking cares?
I’m gonna be real for a second.
If you, as a fan, are involved in fandom you have to be willing to accept that there’s a sort of intellectual exploration of sexuality that goes on, even if you aren’t a part of it. If you can’t accept that it exists as an aspect of fandom you should find something other than fandom to do.
If actors, of their own free will, choose to go down that rabbit hole, then that’s totally a thing they can do. What’s not cool is this thing I’ve seen happening in a lot of fandoms where people are showing the actors erotic art and pointing them to fics for their ships. This is inappropriate because it can be highly embarrassing for the creators of whatever content you’re flashing around. Also the fact that you shouldn’t share or hint at porn casually with strangers doesn’t change just because the stranger was in a movie or a tv show you love or you reblogged a lot of pictures of their face. Like bringing it up is hella weird. It puts the actors and the artists and writers in a potentially weird position and I find it super disrespectful.
I’m sure some people don’t give a shit or think its harmless, but I personally do not condone that at all.
You should never talk about or show explicit material with someone you don’t know. Just because the show has a lot of mature themes, doesn’t green light sharing this with the actors. In the event that they want to see that, why would a public forum but the place to do that? If he wants to read fan fictions, and can’t figure it out on his own, he is better off hitting up his fucking Boss than anyone at a convention.
Bless him for being cool about it, but never bank on a person being okay with that kind of discussion.
