Attention pre-T trans men who want to deepen their voices!
(credit goes to Alex who actually taught me this.)
This is great! Thanks for making this video because a lot of pre-T guys need help with this, come to me, and I don’t know exactly what to tell them. The tumblr video system is shit, so for people who can’t watch this, talk from your chest, not from your mouth or throat. Put your hand on your chest, and you will feel it vibrate when you talk. Record how you sound, practice, and perfect it. Like this guy, you may hear a dramatic change. I actually do this sometimes too, just for the fun of it. When I wake up my voice is lower anyway, but then I talk from my chest and it’s crazy low.
edit - someone just reblogged this off me and suggested drinking milk before you go to sleep because it will make your voice sound deeper in the morning.
Oh my gosh oh my gosh this is fantastic, I am going to practice this!
I’m so happy people are enjoying this!!!! ;U;
this is also great for anyone in general who wants to make their voice either higher or lower
This is incredible
writing adult emails is awful
hi [name of person],
this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student.
I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.
What if TOS had 900% more central female characters?
(Since I don’t want to stretch your dashboards any more than I have already, I’ve written some thoughts about the characters and the process that went into making the graphics under the cut.)
How awesome would this have been? I love how this makes us see that having the male-dominated crew we got in TOS wasn’t the only possibility. Often in media making we hear some creators feel they need a reason why a character should be a woman, a person of colour, LGBT, etc. This kind of graphic says the question should be: “Why not?”
Ohhh I love this!
I think the only change I’d make is replacing Carol Marcus with Number One… But that’s just because I seriously love Number One <3
fuck this shit
it is entirely inconsistent with elizabeth’s character for her to drop everything (PIRATE KING thank you very much) to raise a child as a landlubber
give me elizabeth, eight months pregnant, still running the show from shipwreck cove
give me elizabeth and her six-year-old
soncabin boy kicking ass and taking names as they outrun the royal navy
give me elizabeth, instead of waiting for will, sailing out to meet him
give me elizabeth dying at sea four years and one week later and signing aboard the flying dutchman to the shock of its captain
give me elizabeth and will co-captaining the dutchman and sailing the seas beyond the edge of the world for eternity together
give me young billy (i’m forced to assume they, as pirates, are unimaginative when it comes to names) telling the story of william turner, who gave up everything for the woman he loved, and elizabeth swann, who took it back with sword and pistol
something always bothered me about that ending and now I know what it was god bless
For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water. Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply.

Necessity is the mother of invention.
And why hasn’t this blown up yet?
The same reason anti-rape sleeves haven’t caught on, because it comes from Africa and doesn’t seem useful to middle class white men in America and Europe?
