Reblog the hell out of this everyone.
It’s like you guys want to be outraged and offended.
Thank you. *sigh* THAT’S the thing that bothers me so much about Tumblr sometimes. Everyone loves to find something to complain about and be upset by…
team I’m the ugly friend but it’s good bc I’m funny and chill
i wonder how many people i’m in the “i’d be down if you asked” zone with
“When Mr. and Mrs. Dursley woke up on the dull, grey Tuesday our story starts, there was nothing about the cloudy sky outside to suggest that strange and mysterious things would soon be happening all over the country…”
on an unrelated note, the fishing department has been receiving a multitude of panic calls about the state of mackerel in the ocean and would like to formally ask for this to stop and to state that the mackerel are fine.
I already made a separate post with a tweet I made regarding the subject, but I wanted to speak about it in further detail.
This morning I was enjoying a cup of hot chocolate at the beach by myself when a man I have never seen before grabbed my head from behind to adjust it so he could observe the tattoos behind my ear and on the back of my neck. I was so terrified I couldn’t even move. When he had the audacity to ask me, “What do the diamonds behind your ear mean?” I flipped.
"How dare you invade my personal space and touch me without my consent! I should knock your teeth down your throat for that!"
"— but I just wanted to see your tattoos!"
Unfortunately, things like this are very common in the body modification community. People grab my arms to look at my sleeves or my hands to look at my hand/finger tattoos, some will adjust the top of my shirt to look at my chest piece, a few have lifted up my skirts and dresses to look at the tattoos on my shins and thighs, and one person grabbed the bottom of my lip and pulled it out when they saw I had a tattoo inside my lip.
I hear countless stories like mine on a daily basis. Some include how people will stick their fingers in the lobes of someones ear, how people will touch the piercings on someones face and ask “did it hurt?”, and how people will touch the bodies of others to observe their tattoos. It’s a trend that seriously needs to end.
You shouldn’t touch anyone without their permission, but people seem to think it’s justifiable to touch someone with body modifications because “I just want to see!” Nothing justifies or excuses it. Body modifications doesn’t mean people can touch us without our consent. Please respect the individual spaces of others and knock it off.
jesus this even happens what the actual living breathing fuck
