because i’m going to need it for the sheer volume of pictures I plan to take while in florida.
I don’t want to spam my main blog, so if you want to see me hit Disney World and Universal Orlando for all they’re worth, this is where you’ll find it.

Warning for Trans Youth in Southern Ontario
Avoid Dr. Kenneth Zucker of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. He will not help you in any way and upon asking many invasive, disrespectful, and irrelevant questions, he will suggest you undergo “reparative therapy” to “fix” you (pictured above). When he finishes writing his “report”, which can take months, he will refer to you in an extremely dehumanizing manner that makes you out to be some kind of oddity (eg “He seems very interested in having breasts.”) and he will not respect your gender or use the correct pronouns whatsoever. Not only that, but when he requests your report cards and school pictures (???) he will really take his time in giving them back when you ask him to. Good luck contacting him outside of an appointment, too, as he very rarely, if ever, responds to emails or phone calls. He has stated he considers trans women a “bad outcome of gay men.” Don’t waste your time with this transphobic piece of shit.
Yes yes yes I’m so happy people are talking about this. That clinic works under the old DSM criteria. If you are looking for physical health or mental health or family support around gender please contact Rainbow Health Ontario or the new trans clinic at Sick Kids.
A lot of parents especially go to that clinic with their kids because it’s affiliated with such a well know national agency and they assume it will be the best support. If you hear anyone talking about it please correct them, it is very harmful. :(
I wrote a post last year about an amazing Ontario doctor who specializes in health-care for trans youth, Dr. Carys Massarella. She is the lead Physician of the Transcare Program at Quest Community Health Centre in St. Catharine’s, and is currently one of only three ‘non-pathologizing’ trans-care health providers in Ontario. ‘Non-Pathologizing’ means that when a trans-patient comes in to speak with her about care and care options, their trans identity is:
- not questioned
- not treated as something needing to be fixed
- not pathologized as a mental illness which requires a psychiatric evaluation before proceeding with care options.
If you’re a trans youth looking for health-care (or know any trans youth whose families are hoping to get medical support for them), please DO NOT go to/recommend Dr. Zucker at CAMH. He is severely transphobic and is only looking to ‘fix’ trans kids who he thinks are ‘confused’. Instead, two hospitals that are doing good work for transfolks in the GTA and surrounding area are St. Mike’s in Toronto and St. Joseph’s in Hamilton. Both are (surprisingly) Catholic hospitals, but have made reputations for themselves as providing ethical care for the LGBTQ community. Carys herself is a member of the St. Joseph’s health staff, and says that her transition was embraced at the hospital and its catholic staff, including its nuns. As well, Dr. Massarella’s practice, Quest Community Heath Centre, is a fantastic resource if you can get out to St. Catherine’s.
Reblogging for new information
Personally been hearing some things about CAMH that run the gamut from “sketchy” to “terrifying” for years now from people I personally know, so like, boosting.
John/Astrid is the only important ship
John and Charlotte should be siblings
Stephen is cute, but he’s not John
star wars pirate AU a.k.a.
"pirates of the kessel run: curse of the millenium pearl"
so I was listening to Davy Jones’ theme for hours, and went “hey this reminds me of a sad, nautical mash-up of Across the Stars and the Imperial March”… then “hey, Anakin/Vader is basically Davy Jones, Captain of the Flying
DutchmanExecutor” and then this AU spawned in my brain. and He’s A Pirate = the Force theme and Two Hornpipes (Tortuga) = the Star Wars Cantina?? the parallels are based more on personalities/roles, ignore family relations :P
also I just wanted to try completely reversing the environment of the Anakin vs Obi-Wan final duel… (not that typhoons and giant space kraken are much of an improvement, ahaha)
it’s the natmobile
reblogging again cause that’s fucking gold.
The life of Catherine Robbe-Grillet makes Fifty Shades of Grey look like a Disney movie. In 1951, she became the mistress of the writer—and accomplished sadist—Alain Robbe-Grillet, whom she later married. Today, an 83-year-old widow, she is France’s most famous dominatrix. Visiting the 17th-century château where Robbe-Grillet conducts some of her rituals, Toni Bentley delves into the world of a modern-day Marquise de Sade, her relationship with the much younger Beverly Charpentier, and her journey from submission to dominance.
This is so amazing, and completely out of my experience! I’m sure there are close-knit hierarchical BDSM groups near me just because the odds make it likely, but most closed groups are “like minded friends getting together”. I’ve yet to see a strong and amazing personality attracting the absolute submission of other dominants like what’s described in this article. I’m fascinated.
my dash is full of sleeping hook and indignation at the writers and shade being hurled at hook and it’s glorious
Wow, i think this is the best tutorial I’ve seen so far!
Modern Les Amis AU, friends style.
I’d watch the shit out of that show
Nothing else i’ve got running now hurts quite like Sleeping Hook which to me is THE most painful missed potential ship ever.
Aurora is pregnant and happy and in love with Phillip, but it could be so much more interesting if that wasn’t the whole story.
