displacedtxn asked: Zane: Do you have any plans for what kinds of books you'll sell? Rare collectibles or new publications or both?
Zane: I’ve been doing some research, and I’d really love to sell all of the above, because I love old books so damn much, and rare and collectible books would be so amazing to travel across the country hunting down. But I’d do some new, too, and even set up a system where people can bring their e-readers in and rent books and read them in the store. God, I’m so excited about it.
Ty: He’s so beautiful when he gets all flufffyf.
Ty: Fluffffffffffffy. You talk about your book store and your eyes go soft and you hunch your shoulders down like you’re hugging something and you smile and it makes your face rounder and it makes the silver bits of your hair fluff out. Like an owl.
Zane: I …
Ty: I love you fluffy.
Zane: Don’t you dare start calling me that in public.
Ty: Can I have a cat?
Anonymous asked: honey, you wouldn't be actually curvy if you tried.
First of all, I would like to remind you that most people believe that if you don’t have anything nice to say, keep your damn mouth shut. Or something like that. I don’t know, when my Mom said it, it was a bit more eloquent.Second of all, I’d like to tell you that one of my favorite things to do is to broaden things. Clearly, but the size of my ass and other body parts in the photo in which you are referring, I like things broad. So let me broaden your mind.According to google, as well as Merriam-Webster, this is the definition of curve, the root of curvy.curvenounplural noun: curves
- a line or outline that gradually deviates from being straight for some or all of its length. - "the parapet wall sweeps down in a bold curve"
- a place where a road deviates from a straight path. - "the vehicle rounded a curve."
- a curving contour of a woman’s figure.
- a line on a graph (whether straight or curved) showing how one quantity varies with respect to another. - "the population curve"Synonyms include: bend, turn loop, wind, meander, undulate, snake, spiral, twist, coil, curl.Clearly, by the definitions set by both Noah Webster, as well as Larry Page and Sergey Brin, respectively, I fall under the definitions of curvy. My body certainly does; from the curve of my neck to my shoulder, the curve from the underside of my breast to my rib cage, and the spot where my side meets my hip, that my boyfriend loves to kiss when we snuggle. I also have curves in my calves, from muscles built by climbing Seattle hills, dancing my ass off at zumba, and hiking local trails. I have the curve of my hip, which juts out perfectly, both to hold my three year old son, and fit the palm of my forty year old lover. I assure you, the both respond enthusiastically.My life does as well, it has meandered through many destination, spiraling through frightful experiences, and undulating though amazing and passionate ones. In fact in my life, the curve of my arm has held many lovers, siblings, friends. It has welcomed two healthy boys into the world, and held perfectly still as a darling baby girl died in its embrace. The bends and loops of my body and my life would horrify and amaze you. Because I, and this body, are more capable than you will ever imagine.If this has not broaden your view enough, I will do my best to widen it further. (As I am clearly a master of all things broad and wide). This is a body positive blog. All bodies and curves are welcome. Clearly, there are people who find myself, and others like me, beautiful. Including the Nympho Ninjas who published my photo that appeared on your Tumblr dash. If you do not feel the need to participate in such a positive and loving (as well as passionate, kinky, sexy and fun) atmosphere, you are welcome to close that mouth of yours and leave. Because the only thing not curvy about me, is my intellect. It is in a constant state of propelling ascension, and I only associate with those whose minds are doing the same.
Beautiful response from a beautiful lady.
Anonymous asked: Sexualising violence doesn’t stop it from being violence. BDSM is becoming a lot more popular in porn and is teaching young males that violence against women is acceptable, it’s teaching young girls that being beaten in the bedroom is something they should be aroused by and that they should ‘experiment’ with. The normalization of these things is teaching girls that sex is violent, degrading, painful, and humiliating and that they should enjoy it. It’s just another tool for men to control women.
Learning about sex from porn is like learning about love from Twilight.
People are more complex than you suggest. Boys who play with toy guns don’t always grow up to be shooters.
Distinguish between fantasy and reality, and take personal responsibility. Stop blaming this subculture or that subculture. Take positive steps to promote love and health.
Dear Anon: BDSM is not limited to heterosexual couples where the male is the dominant partner. What about the heterosexual couples where the woman is dominant? Is that okay to you because it is the woman in the power position? What about homosexual couples that participate in BDSM? What about couples that focus on the D/s off BDSM and don’t have any hitting, spanking or rough sex as part of life. Is that okay? If you were genuinely concerned about BDSM and violence, you would be making a broader statement about violence and coerced consent. It seems that you are using a careful curated view of BDSM to back up your underlying world view that men are awful and hateful and out to oppress women.
Are you not aware of the ‘safe, sane and consensual’ mantra that pervades the community? Yes, there are people who don’t abide by that standard but there are also people outside of the BDSM community that don’t abide by that standard. It is true that some abusers prowl in the BDSM community and justify their abusive behavior by saying it is BDSM. However, there are also abusers that prowl the vanilla community and cloak their abuse as Biblical teachings. An abuser can twist anything to try to justify their abuse.
And while I am ranting, did you know that women sometimes abuse and control their male partners? Did you know that women sometimes abuse their female partners? Did you know that men sometimes abuse their male partners?
As for porn teaching people things, if that were the case I would have to bang every pizza delivery guy that comes to my door. I don’t because I know the difference between fiction and reality.
