It’s cool to see a post that isn’t ‘don’t hurt yourself in the first place!!’ but is actually giving you geniune, helpful advice for recovery and caring for yourself
I guess it’s handy to share this since we’re all shopping these days.
There’s a Chrome extension called Honey that’s really handy. Go to your checkout - Honey will automatically detect a promotional code entry box and create a little yellow button. Click the button and it will use its database to plug in a good chunk of promotional codes. If it finds several codes that work, it will calculate which one saves you the most money, then tell you how much money you saved!
What You Don’t Know About Beauty and the Beast:
Some backstory: due to this little discussion, I was considering writing a continuation/expansion of Beauty and the Beast. I read up on it and found out everything I thought I knew about it was wrong.
-It was created by one, singular, female author in 1740: Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve
-It is not a retelling of a pervasive folklore like Perrault’s Cinderella, for example. It was influenced by folklore but is an original story and is very “post” the fairy tales you might be familiar with. The story is also influenced by women who gathered together and told each other revisions of fairy tales in Parisian salons.
-It’s over 100 pages long
-Though written simply and in a straightforward manner, the characters have personalities and are much more complex in their emotions than a normal folkloric tale. They behave in a diverse and fairly realistic manner to their situations. The Beast’s mother in particular is a complex woman, protective of her son and a capable military leader but not progressive in her attitude towards marrying below your station.
-Women are overwhelmingly the masters of the plot and outnumber the men in number and priority.
Female players include:
A nice Fairy
A jerk Fairy (called Mother of the Seasons)
The Queen of the Fairies
A Fairy-who-is-a-Queen (these are different)
A Queen/the Beast’s mother
Belle’s shallow (though fairly realistically so) sisters who are treated as a collective
-It contains considerable world-building. Fairy language, Fairy law, Fairy influence over monarchies, Fairy hierarchy, Fairy magic are all things she depicts. (eat your heart out, Tolkien fans).
-The curse is broken halfway through the book. The rest is devoted to comments on class, monarchy, marrying for love vs. status, appropriate conditions for love, and marrying below your station among other things.
-The Beast is cursed to punish his mother.
-The book’s plot turns out to be entirely due to the machinations of The Mother of the Seasons and the long-game trap/revenge story orchestrated by the Nice Fairy to defeat The Mother of the Seasons Fairy.
-The book takes place in a specific time period rather than in a nebulous “before-time”, somewhere, as I figure, between 1669 to the early 1700s. It might even be contemporaneous to when it was published. It references the age piracy, revolutions, the merchant class, the presence of slavery, Belle watching comedies, operas, and plays the Fair of St. Germain, and a Janissary battle.
-The Beast’s Queen mother led troops into battle for several years, put down a revolt and defeated an encroaching enemy monarch.
And this is only a partial list.
If you’d like to read the original version by Madame de Villeneuve, it’s collected in a book by J. R. Blanche.
It’s available for free:
Archive.org (they don’t mention her name in the author list but it’s there)
after it being recently brought to my attention [stares at emma] that not everyone knows about this add-on i’d like to inform you that if you click that link you can access sites that are usually out of your country
ie you can get US netflix, pandora, hulu, whatever
so there you go
As you can see, searching the term ‘ass’ yields 0 results.
Tumblr changed the search (now Search & Discovery) page yesterday. They also permanently flagged any blog they could find that has ever posted or reblogged explicit content as NSFW.
Now your search results, even as a NSFW blog, will not show any NSFW results unless you change the settings to allow them.
Any porn blogs, spread/reblog this so your followers know. Any non-porn blogs, spread/reblog this to your followers. Any cam girls spread/reblog!
Every one should be aware of this new default setting.
As you can see ALL results for tags like #ass. #booty etc. will yield ZERO results unless you change the settings
Don’t forget to do this!
makes it look like you’ve deleted your blog or it doesnt exist and basically mirrors the actual page youd get if you had. its ideal if youve changed you url and dont want people to find you (thats why IM using it) or any other reason
If you want to make it realistic: be sure to change your icon to this picture (dw about sizing it will fit) and make your blog title “Not Found.”
yes, i am for real: i just spent 4 hours developing a real life MASS TAG REPLACER SCRIPT!
it’s going to be buggy, but i’ve tested it and it works! nothing terrible has happened to me yet! i hope it works for you too!! (◡‿◡✿)
please make sure to read the disclaimers before connecting it to your tumblr account. if you have questions or concerns please direct them to me on my twitter, @cubeghost!
and you’re welcome :)
MCALC the first Gender Neutral Menstruation Calculator.
Mcalc started off as an idea to create a menstruation calculator app that could be used by anyone regardless of their gender, this way our app keeps the trans* and genderqueer community in mind so they can enjoy the features without being constantly misgendered (as with other apps).
Our new app is still in BETA so we appreciate any feedback you can give us at email@example.com, we try to solve as many bugs as possible in as little time as we can so please, let us know if anything is not working properly.
What is Mcalc?
Mcalc is a new menstruation calculator app, it tracks your period and keeps you updated on your current status and any upcoming important events of your menstrual cycle
How does it work?
Simple! just provide the app with some basic information about you and your cycle, Mcalc will calculate the rest, taking your personal context into consideration. Afterwards you can set alarms and even log relevant events.
What features does it have?
-Neutrality Guaranteed: We understand that sex and gender identity are not the same, because of this, we designed our app so it can be used by almost everyone. Mcalc is 100% gender neutral and it won’t assume anything from you while using it.
-Notifications: Mcalc will keep you updated on the important dates of your menstrual cycle, it’s built in alarm system will allow you to set notifications you care about.
-Adaptation: We all have different needs, and Mcalc can suit them accordingly, it will only display the information relevant to your purposes and won’t nag you with irrelevant data. Using Mcalc on “sex mode” will help you reduce your risks of getting pregnant when having sex for fun, while setting it on “baby mode” will help you increase your chances of getting pregnant when planning one.
-Tracking: Mcalc lets you keep a log of your activity for later reference, it’s as simple as tapping a date in our calendar and tick the events that happened that day to save them for further reference.
-Information: Discover new things about menstrual cycles by using Mcalc’s informative pages.

Guys we worked like hell to get this to be a thing, we are just a bunch of 20 something year old nerdy gay guys who want to do something cool for the LGBT community tech-wise, so please even if you are not gonna download it at least reblog it, we don’t have any investors on this so we rely on mere tumblr and social media support.
Please share! all the earnings will go to fund new sexpedia articles and pay our collaborators in this project.
THIS IS THE COOLEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.
Oh thank goodness! FINALLY!
OMG this sounds awesome! Even better than P-tracker
