If you have been on Tumblr on the past couple of days, it’s likely that you’ve seen this post. I happened to stumble upon it randomly on my dashboard and usually, I scroll past really long texts but this one caught me by surprise because I recognized every single person in this photo. This was posted by someone I know very well who currently goes by the name Lexus Willow, but I know her as ‘Lex’. Lex and I were really close about four (maybe five? idk) years ago. We were best friends so obviously, I know each and every one of the people in that photo by name.
While true, her home life wasn’t ever ideal (her mom made us stop listening to ‘I Kiss A Girl’ at her 16th birthday party because they didn’t support that in their house) but honestly, her life isn’t as bad as she’s making it out to be. While her parents weren’t supportive of her being gay, the reason they are so harsh on her is because of her own dumb life choices. She has done tons of incredibly shitty things to her family that left be absolutely dumbstruck. She goes off with girl after girl, saying they’re the one, write them pretty songs but use them and uses her family as a springboard when she has nowhere else to go.
She admitted to cheating on her ex-fiancee with dozens of girls, but plays if off to everyone as she was the victim and everything was this girls fault. She uses the people around her, including her family. In fact, this one girl was at her graduation party, interacting with her mother and they knew who she was.
Lex’s life is far from perfect. She’s had a pretty rough past with being adopted and sure, her parents aren’t always 100% supportive of her lifestyle choices, but this isn’t a strict matter of her being queer. It’s her as a person. I normally wouldn’t really care that she’s getting attention for this but the fact that people are sending her MONEY to meet up with a girl she’s never met before (she does this a lot, btw) and say they want to write to Ellen is absolutely preposterous. Until Lex gets her life straightened out, this is not what she needs. She needs her family and you are all enabling her to continue on with her bad habits.
If you see posts about her, especially about donating money or writing to Ellen, PLEASE RESIST. There are so many more people who deserve this more than her and her family are NOT bad people. They aren’t evil. They truly want what’s best for their daughter, biological or not, and this is going to rip their family apart. I hope I don’t come across as a bitter person, but it honestly disgusts me that people are feeding into this when it’s not true.
If Lex sees this, I’m really sorry. I care about you deeply but this is going too far and you KNOW IT. You are stealing people’s money for your selfish needs and lying to them and it has to end. There are people out there who really are in horrible situations with no support whatsoever and they aren’t being heard but for some reason, people are eating this up, even though you’re the one who ripped your face off of that picture and have admitted to that. Please, please stop. I’m sure you could easily figure out who this is, maybe not, but I really think people deserve to know this. Your family loves you and this will tear them apart.
Wow I believed that post to
First off, apologies on the size and format. The panels are taken from my sketchbook where I didn’t really measure anything off in a standard size, so I opted for one of those long-scrolling vertical images.
Recent research is beginning to show sharks for the highly complex and even intelligent animals they really are. Many people are bitten by sharks every year, but very few if any are pulled under the waves as a food source. Sharks can inspect their environment by sight, smell, pressure on their bodies, electrical senses, and touch. Touch for an animal without hands however is problematic. Think of all the things you’ve seen in your own life that deceived your eyes, but your hands could tell you more. Whether or not a window was open. If an egg was thin-shelled or thick shelled. Whether a texture was hard or soft, such as between astro-turf or a chenille blanket. Sharks bite objects to inspect them, much as a human toddler puts objects in their mouths. They may be rewarded with food, but spit things out that are inedible or simply not what the shark is looking for.
Shark populations of all species have declined by as much as 90% of their historic levels. With seven billion humans on earth, many of them vacationing or living in the sharks’ backyards, it’s understandable that once in awhile a mistake is made. Be knowledgeable that they are honest mistakes and most sharks simply do not see people as a food source.
I don’t believe we have properly introduced the Hannibal Fandom to the neighborhood. So the Whovians would like to welcome the Fannibals
