 It occurs to me that as much as humans are the scary ones fits sometimes,
 you look at it another way, humans might seem like the abeurdy friendly or
 I mean, who looked at an elephant, gigantic creature thoroughly capable of king
 someone if it has to, and thought Im gonna ride on that thing!?
 And put a human near any canine predator and there's a strong chance of said
 human yeling 'PUPPYr and intiating playtul interaction wih it
 And what about the people who look at whales, bigger than basically everything
 ese and decide Tm gonna swim with our splashy danger trends
 Heck, for all we know, humans might run into the scariest, toughest alens out
 there and say Heck with it. I'm gonna hug em
 Why
 "I dunno. I gotta hug 'em
 And it's ike the frst friendly interaction the species has had in forever so
 suddenly humanity has a bunch of big scary friends
 Commander, we must update the code of conduct to include the humans
 Why2 Are they more aggressive than we anticipated?
 It seems to be the opposite Commander Just this morning a crewman nearly lost
 their hand when atempting to stroke an unidentifed feline on an unknown world
 Their reaction to the attack was to call the creature a mean kitty and vow to win
 aver Upon inquiry it seems they bond so readily with creatures outside ther
 species that they have the capacity to feel sympathy for an alien creature they have
 never seen belore simply because it appears distressed I hate to say ths
 commander but we must install a ule to prevent them from endangering their own
 lives when interacting with the galaxy's fauna
 isee what you mean So be it, from now on no crewman is allowed to touch
 unknown aninals without permission from a supericr oficer And send a message to
 supplies about acquining one of these puppies so that their desire to touch furred
 predators can be safely sated
 Ehehehe I love this! Every time someone adds a short story to my post it gets like 90%
 cuter and more epic
 Lets be honest, the humans would ignore the hel outtia thet rule whenever alone
 So I hear that youve just recruited a human for your ship
 Yes, it's the first time that I've worked with these species, but they come highly recommended
 Say, you've worked with a few, what ips can you give me? l'd hate to have some kind of
 cutura misunderstanding i ts avoidable
 The first rule of working wth humans is never leave mem unsupervised
 Wait, what?
 1m serious Dont do it Things, Happen
 But wan, I thought that I heard you highly
 one on board?
 that every crew should have at least
 Absolutely, and I stand by that. Humans are excellent innovators, and are psychologicaly
 very resient If you have a crisis, then a human that has bonded wth your crew properly can
 be invaluable Treat your human well and you should get the best out of them as a crew
 member Their ablity to get on with almost any species is legendary
 But Toks, didn't you just say
 The trouble is that they will potentially try to bond with anying It you leave them
 unsupervised, you have no idea what kind of trouble they can get themselves into It was
 sheer kuck that the Fanzorans thought that it was funny that the human picked up the Crown
 Prince to coo at him.
 Crown Prince Horram, Scourge of Pxia?
 The very same Surprisingy good sense of humour But dont even get me started on that one
 time with the Dunlip. Al Human wanted to know if they could keep it. As a pet.
 A Dunip? You mean the 3 metre tall apex predators from Jowun?
 Yup. Don't leave your hwmans unsupervised
 uh,take that under advisement
 Seriousy Gef a supply of safe animals for the humans to bond with or they wil make their own I
 mean, they will try to befriend anything they come across anyway, but without any permanent pets
 they can get creative Dont even gat me started on the time one of them taped a kie to one of
 our auto-cleaners and named it Stabby
 Three weeks in and when we Enally caught the wreiched thing haf the humans on crew tried to
 revolt about us "kiling Stabby by removing the knife
 How how did you resolve that si?
 Glaxcol made a toy knife out of insulation rubber and strapped that on instead. Quite a creative
 soluton, I suppose
 And that sated the humans?
 Worse
 Worse?
 "They thought
 and held mock batties Then decided Stabby and Knitey were in love and now none af them will
 alow the others to stage ights between them any more
 was so funny they made a second one, strapped false eyes on spmgs to both
 So, if I supply my Humans with safe bonding pets they wll behave better when on other planets?
 Where do 1 get safe bonding pels?
 Realizing the havoc their species created with their bonding needs, Earth has been kind enough to
 create an inter galactic 'pet shop as they call t, the order forms are on the bridge
 If they get a pet this should prevent any krife welding auto-cleaners?
 You dont sound very reassuring
 Wel You have to understand that some of what humans find attractive about ther pets is actually
 what makes them dangerous. Not all of what they consider 'safe is what we would consider safe
 OK Iam getting a little nervous about this.
 No, no, it's fine, Im just saying you should maybe keep an eye on what they order Ask them to

OH, I JUST STARTED HERE TALENT & I HARD WORK TALENTHARD WORK owLTURD.com violent-darts: charlesoberonn: jelloapocalypse: These bother me sometimes. We all start as literal useless babies. No one gets a magic ticket that makes them better at anything. If someone says they “never practice” it’s probably because they like doing the skill and see it as a fun use of their time instead of “practice”. I will qualify this a small but I think important amount, because what it is is actually complicated:  Some people’s brains and nervous systems are wired for better hand-eye coordination. Some people’s brains and nervous systems are wired for better pattern recognition. Or translations of audio input. Or whatever.  What this does is combine with @jelloapocalypse‘s EXTREMELY WELL-OBSERVED COMMENT (If someone says they “never practice” it’s probably because they like doing the skill and see it as a fun use of their time instead of “practice”.) in a way that can be both invisible and give this kind of person a massive leg up while being really discouraging to someone who doesn’t have that wiring.  It doesn’t get to the actual original comic’s level of “oh I just started here”. But let’s take two people called Riley and Kennedy, and we’ll do singing, since that’s what I teach.  Riley and Kennedy have exactly the same kind of background: parents who listen to the radio sometimes, the usual social stuff around popular music of whatever genre, etc, but no formal training. Neither of them sings in a church choir, neither of them falls into a formal disability category, whatever.  The first time Riley shows up in my studio and we sing a really simple song I use as a diagnostic, she gets it mostly right. She can follow the tune; she can hear pitch, and it takes very little work for her to chivvy her voice into matching that pitch as long as there’s not something pulling her off. (In other words: as long as I’m singing the same notes as her and playing them on the piano, and as long a she can hear both herself and those notes).  For Riley the lesson is really fun and validating and she goes home and sings along to her own music for a while and comes back next week with six songs she wants to try learning. And most of her lessons are like that: pretty easy positive feedback. That means Riley “practices” a lot in exactly the way @jelloapocalypse describes, even if she doesn’t think she’s actually practicing (that is, sitting down to sing the songs we’re working on together in a systematic way) at all.  In contrast, the first time Kennedy comes to my studio, she struggles. It’s harder for her to hear the difference between notes, and it’s much harder for her to make her voice actually match the pitch she wants to sing at. When we pull out the diagnostic tune, she mostly manages to drone a few clusters of semi-tones, and while she can hear that she’s Off, it’s actually very hard for her to tell HOW she’s off, or what she should do to correct it.  In most cases, for Kennedy, lessons - and in fact the overall experience of singing - is not fun. It’s not validating. It’s a whole process of Not Being Good, of Doing Things Wrong, and given the way humans are often in casual situations being laughed at. When Kennedy goes home she doesn’t sing along with any music she plays: she keeps her lips pressed together and at best enjoys other people singing (and maybe feels envious and demeaned because she can’t do it).  Now the thing is, the practical “skill” difference for Riley and Kennedy here at the beginning is minimal. But the Rileys will tend (if they like what they’re doing) to ROCKET UP THE SKILL LEVEL, because of the “practice is fun so it’s just the thing I do” - because there is always a bunch of validation and positive reinforcement in the act of doing whatever it is, be it doodling or singing or math.  The Kennedys won’t. In fact if they’re not lucky enough to have a good teacher, and one who can put a lot of this into perspective for them, they will tend to be inhibited. The worst time is when a Riley and a Kennedy are friends and sign up to learn together, and Riley takes off and Kennedy’s left sitting there feeling like she’s somehow Deeply Flawed.   And in fact the whole Doctrine of “It’s Just About How Hard You Work” will in and of itself become part of what inhibits them, because they will watch the Rileys - and even the Annas, Anna in this metaphor being the Totally Normal Student who never really exists - grasp things faster than they do, even if they ARE working hard. And this will HAPPEN. They will watch this reality happen in front of them … and then people say to them “oh, it’s all about how hard you work, dear.” And it’s like being gaslit. (Well, to be fair: it IS being gaslit, just without malice intended on the part of the people doing it.)  And that message is horribly horribly toxic: here Kennedy is, and she IS working hard, but she’s still not progressing as fast as Riley or Anna no matter what she does! But it’s All About Hard Work, right? So that must mean that no matter how hard she THINKS she’s working, she’s actually just lazy, or doesn’t want it enough. It’s clearly a moral flaw in her.  I actually have, personally, really good luck with teaching the Kennedys because I literally have this conversation with them when they come to my studio. I actually outright tell them: firstly, anyone who has working vocal chords can sing. Anyone who has working vocal chords and the ability to distinguish audio pitch can even sing on key in tune! But some people have an easy time learning this and some people have a hard time, and sometimes which it is has some relationship to, say, “early exposure to music” or whatever but sometimes it seems to be utterly fucking random - pure luck of the draw.  You CAN SING. The capability is there. And if you want to we will find out how to make it happen. It might not happen as fast as for some other person, it might take more work, it might take more care, but that’s okay: that’s not your fault, that doesn’t mean you’re NOT working hard, but it does mean that here at the beginning we do things like recalibrate victories, we make your progress about YOU, not about Riley or Anna.  But I’m also not going to gaslight you or make you feel like you’re either delusional or somehow especially So Terrible You Don’t Fit In The Rest Of The World: sure, I’ve got some Riley-types who walk in here, noodle around, and we go on to Art Songs.

The latest states that have been targeted by this massive sweep is California, Arizona, Texas, and now Georgia. Over 100 people have been detained, most likely without a warrant. And before someone says “they’re just keeping the criminals out!1!”, lawyers who were able to consult some of the people detained did not have a criminal record. There have also been reports of officers trailing kids walking home from school to lead to their parents.  These officers DO NOT. HAVE. THE RIGHT. TO DETAIN PEOPLE. WITHOUT. A WARRANT.   KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND DON’T FORGET TO #RESIST Here’s some more info on what’s happening in Georgia  I told you the Muslims were the first step. They’re coming after Latinos with no criminal records in their own homes now. Three minutes from my house they detained over 100 people yesterday and literally dragged them out of their houses. They are pulling drivers over on the streets asking for papers. They are following school buses home and arresting parents when they meet the children at the stops. They’re not releasing the names of anyone they have apprehended. They’re not answering any questions from journalists/CHIRLA/the public or giving reasons as to why they’re detaining people without access to immigration attorneys. ICE has gone rogue and it seems to be in retaliation for the 9th circuit ruling against the Muslim Ban. It was clear that the Justice Department was losing during arguments on Tuesday and about 24 hours later random raids all across the country started happening? Not a coincidence. Meanwhile on Twitter, Republicans are challenging each other to see who can report more “illegal looking people” to the ICE tip line. There are accounts proudly boasting their report tallies and encouraging more to follow suit. Others are saying they reported their neighbors or friends of friends. Any resemblance to Nazi Germany is not unintentional. Be safe out there. We’ve waded into very dangerous territory.

America, Anaconda, and Children: WHAT TO DO
 IF ICE COMES TO YOUR DOOR
 DO NOT OPEN DOORS
 ICE cannot come in without a signed warrant
 or if you let them in. Tell them to pass the
 warrant under the door before you open.
 REMAIN SILENT
 ICE can use anything you say against you in
 your immigration case so claim your right
 to remain silent!
 Say "I plead the fifth amendment and choose to remain silent"
 DO NOT SIGN
 Don't sign anything ICE gives you without
 talking to an attorney.
 REPORT THE RAID!
 Report immediately: UWD hotline 1-844-343-1623.
 Take pictures, video and notes:
 badge numbers, number of agents, exactly
 what happened!
 FIGHT BACK!
 Get a trustworthy attorney & explore all
 options to fight your case. If detained, you
 may be able to get bail - don't give up hope!

 EN CASO DE REDADAS
 ¿QUÉ PUEDES HACER?
 NO ABRAS LA PUERTA
 Pregúntale a la migra si tienen una orden
 de arresto y que te la pasen por debajo
 de la puerta.
 GUARDA SILENCIO
 Tienes el derecho a permanecer callado/a.
 Si te confrontan agentes de inmigración, di:
 "Uso mi derecho bajo la quinta enmienda, y tengo el
 derecho a mantenerme callado/a"
 NO FIRMES
 No firmes nada que te den los agentes
 de inmigracion.
 REPORTA LA REDADA!
 Reporta inmediatamente al 1-844-343-1623.
 Toma fotos y videos de todos los detalles
 que veas. Dile a tus amigos y vecinos lo
 que sucede y edúcalos sobre sus derechos.
 HAZ UN PLAN Y PELEA!
 Sí inmigración detiene a un ser querido, busca un
 abogado de confianza, y haz planes para que
 alguien cuide a tus hijos. Tu puedes pelear un
 caso de detención y tal vez recibir una fianza.

IMPORTANT INFO FOR WHAT’S CURRENTLY HAPPENING IN TRUMP’S AMERICA: a lot of unwarranted raids are happening across the U.S right now. The latest states that have been targeted by this massive sweep is California, Arizona, Texas, and now Georgia. Over 100 people have been detained, most likely without a warrant. And before someone says “they’re just keeping the criminals out!1!”, lawyers who were able to consult some of the people detained did not have a criminal record. There have also been reports of officers trailing kids walking home from school to lead to their parents.  These officers DO NOT. HAVE. THE RIGHT. TO DETAIN PEOPLE. WITHOUT. A WARRANT.  
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND DON’T FORGET TO #RESIST

Here’s some more info on what’s happening in Georgia 

I told you the Muslims were the first step. They’re coming after Latinos with no criminal records in their own homes now. Three minutes from my house they detained over 100 people yesterday and literally dragged them out of their houses. They are pulling drivers over on the streets asking for papers. They are following school buses home and arresting parents when they meet the children at the stops. They’re not releasing the names of anyone they have apprehended. They’re not answering any questions from journalists/CHIRLA/the public or giving reasons as to why they’re detaining people without access to immigration attorneys. ICE has gone rogue and it seems to be in retaliation for the 9th circuit ruling against the Muslim Ban. It was clear that the Justice Department was losing during arguments on Tuesday and about 24 hours later random raids all across the country started happening? Not a coincidence. 
Meanwhile on Twitter, Republicans are challenging each other to see who can report more “illegal looking people” to the ICE tip line. There are accounts proudly boasting their report tallies and encouraging more to follow suit. Others are saying they reported their neighbors or friends of friends. Any resemblance to Nazi Germany is not unintentional. Be safe out there. We’ve waded into very dangerous territory.


I don’t have a lot of followers, but any of you who can translate this in other languages, especially Arabic and French, please add to this post!

Ariel, Cinderella , and Disney: sweetmadameblue: jgaskisanerd: invinciblend: iamabutchsolo: Something that I think people vastly overlook in The Princess and the Frog is the friendship between Tiana and Charlotte. It may be only a small part in the film, but in the scheme of Disney movies, this is a revolutionary element. If you trace the history of all of the other Disney princesses - Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Pocahontas, Jasmine, Rapunzel - no other princess is shown as having a female friend. Some may have mother figures such as Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas or the various fairy godmothers, and Ariel has sisters, but the princesses rarely interact with other women as friends. The Princess and the Frog is the only Disney princess film that actually shows women being friends with each other. Charlotte and Tiana were pals since childhood, and not once did we see Charlotte ever do anything but be a good friend, not falling into any pitfalls of petty friendships or letting class differences affect their relatiojship. When Tiana is trying to earn money on her own? Charlotte hires her knowing that it will help Tiana’s goal. When Tiana fell at Charlotte’s ball and much of the desserts were ruined? Charlotte didn’t care about the food, her number one concern was to make sure Tiana was alright. And when Charlotte learns that Tiana loved Prince Naveen? Charlotte didn’t even flinch; she was willing to forgo her own aspirations of being a princess because she cares about Tiana’s happiness more. I think this aspect of the film is what in my mind, separates it from other Disney princess movies. It deserve a lot more credit for being the only princess film that actually shows women being friends with each other, helping each other, and caring about each other. The Princess and the Frog shows a better female friendship than a lot of movies, even outside of princess or animated films. It was really one of my favourite bits of the movie and to say that it avoids the pitfalls is so true. At numerous points when I first watched I was thinking, “Here is where Charlotte reveals her true nature” because how often in movies do girls or women get to just be good friends? I mean, all friends have petty disputes sometimes, but it seems to be unavoidable in most female friendships in media (especially when it comes to romance). So this movie was a really welcome change. THIIIIIIIS. Valid point, but EXCUSE ME LET ME BRING YOU POCAHONTAS’ VOICE OF REASON. (I just have feels because I heart her. I had her doll.)

Something that I think people vastly overlook in The Princess and the Frog is the friendship between Tiana and Charlotte. It may be only a small part in the film, but in the scheme of Disney movies, this is a revolutionary element.
If you trace the history of all of the other Disney princesses - Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Pocahontas, Jasmine, Rapunzel - no other princess is shown as having a female friend. Some may have mother figures such as Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas or the various fairy godmothers, and Ariel has sisters, but the princesses rarely interact with other women as friends. The Princess and the Frog is the only Disney princess film that actually shows women being friends with each other.
Charlotte and Tiana were pals since childhood, and not once did we see Charlotte ever do anything but be a good friend, not falling into any pitfalls of petty friendships or letting class differences affect their relatiojship. When Tiana is trying to earn money on her own? Charlotte hires her knowing that it will help Tiana’s goal. When Tiana fell at Charlotte’s ball and much of the desserts were ruined? Charlotte didn’t care about the food, her number one concern was to make sure Tiana was alright. And when Charlotte learns that Tiana loved Prince Naveen? Charlotte didn’t even flinch; she was willing to forgo her own aspirations of being a princess because she cares about Tiana’s happiness more.
