ok i'm not muslim i'm an orthodox christian but it might be easier for you (it's easier for me) to think of hell as a place people send themselves when they consciously reject the love of God (either during life or standing in front of God depending on your views) instead of picturing God sending people to hell because He's mean

I’m sooo sorry for never getting back to you ooh my gosh. That’s a perspective I hadn’t considered! Thank you, it ~expanded my horizons~ 

i can’t reply to asks (i s2g) so let me copy this

anonymous asked: ooooooh post-80s experimental performance and electronic art!!!!!! you should blog about that more!!! (i mean if you want to. but it would make me happy)

i actually follow people that are way smarter than me on this stuff so i always feel too embarrassed to say much but for me my primary interest is the documentation and archiving of works that don’t easily lend themselves to being stored. example: a painting is pretty easy to keep track of. you have the physical painting and you can take photographs to document it and make prints etc. but what about a piece of art written on a software that only works on a specific generation of a specific computer manufacturer? how do you store that, and how do you bring it back out to re-present it in a gallery? 

i’m currently in the process of bulking up my art history knowledge (i’m currently studying proto-renaissance) but i miss academic/informative blogging and i’m going to try to do it more. if you have any specific things you’d like to me talk about or conversations you’d like to have, i’d be thrilled to host that!

That's 6% not 0.06%. .06 is the decimal value. You have to multiply it by 100 to get a percent value. That's still incredibly small, though.

my apologies friend i typed that one way and then restructured what i was saying and did not edit it because it would not be a post of mine if i didn’t make a least one major embarrassing mistake (it took me four tries to spell embarrassing)

how do you know that you're really, like, depressed, because i feel like i might be but i also refuse to take my own evaluation as valid because i live in constan fear i'm actually just romaticizing mental illness :/ i'm sorry to be asking you this ... don't answer if you don't want to

i don’t know if you even can know that you’re “really” depressed because that “really” is very hard to stick a definition to. i would say that if you are experiencing longer-term effects (that is, it’s not because of a bad day or week) or if using the term “depression” will get you to help that you need, that “counts.” i think i’ve talked in the past how access to resources via labels is something that i am a big supporter of — it doesn’t actually matter to me if you’re “really” depressed, if saying “i have depression” is what gets you to the therapy/medication/other resources that help you, that’s.. really what i consider the word to be there for. if you feel depressed and it’s frequent/severe/etc enough for you to consider it to be something that plays a role in your life, that’s depression. i hope this helped and i hope that you find whatever you need re: help with it. if you need anything let me know!

oh this is something else i need to tell you. because I have a lot of tabs open in all browsers always, the shortened lil tabs make the title of your blog look like it's just "gay".
ok, my mom is talking about how women who wear headscarves are forced into it by their male "dominants" and i like, it made me really mad, bc it was that feminist ass bull shit that women shouldn't be able to have a connection with their god, and she was basically making very rude stereotypes about the muslim religion and i just want an argument even tho i'm like white and non-religious, idk i just wanted to show her some things that educate her? like any posts or blogs i could show her? (▰˘◡˘▰)

u know i used to have a lot of articles on hand and i cannot find ANY of them right now this is ridiculous here is one though! i am going to make this public so if anyone has any resources they can direct them to me/you but let me try to give you some basics:

in islam, hijab/covering/etc is a personal thing. women don’t wear it to “protect” men from their lusts, they wear it for themselves and god. the way it was explained to me, modesty overall is important in islam, so dressing not to show off our bodies or our wealth etc is an extension of that. it’s important to note that some women are forced! but many women also make this decision for themselves and discounting their agency is oppressive. many women consider it an independent religious obligation free from outside factors. i’m so rusty this is a terrible explanation but the key thing here is that it needs to be a choice. taking away something many women consider important to their faith and/or their self-identities against their will is not actually liberating! euugh yeah i’m really sorry!!
