None, one, or both! The account is under shyshrinking but I think I reblog/post more on brother—soft, if that helps.
i can’t stress enough how language is defined by its use
you’re not really misusing a word if you’re using it in its most popular definition because there’s no way i could tell anyone that something is “terrific” and have EVERYONE KNOW THAT I MEAN IT INSPIRES TERROR GOD YOU’RE ALL SOOOOO STUPID
clinging to archaic definitions and being a language purist in general is so dumb for real like 50% of our language now is butchered latin mixed with shakespearean chatspeak
Question to anyone who cares to respond: does this still apply to words like “crazy” and “insane” et al? They aren’t used to mean mentally ill anymore for the most part (at least according to my mom the last time we had this argument) but they have their roots there.
There are no exceptions to mandatory consent. There is not an exception for familial relations. There is not an exception for platonic touch. There’s no exception for people who are intoxicated. You are not an exception for any reason. There is no reason for you to force touch on any other human being, ever, no matter what. Even if you think there’s no harm in it, there is no reason to take the risk of making someone else uncomfortable or scared.

This gives some information, though the site’s about/for parents of “special needs” children so IDK how useful the rest of it is.

You don’t mention it, but I find my English major far more useful than my poli sci minor in advocacy. Learning to argue well is so useful.
Good point! I guess I hadn’t really thought about that as much since I’m in “advanced” English classes right now, but yeah, English is generally just really useful. Would you be willing to talk to me about your experiences majoring in English - like, what kinds of classes, which did you enjoy the most/least and why, and where you went and why?
