Alright Question!

I recently went hiking and saw my very first whiskeyjacks/gray jays. And now I wanna make a superhero based on them. But when I Googled whiskeyjack, I found out that the name is an Anglicized version of an Algonquian/Cree cultural hero Wisakedjak (which actually has like a billion spellings because Algonquian/Cree was an unwritten language to begin with so English speakers just spelled it phonetically though sources are telling me Wisakedjak is Cree and Algonquian but that Cree is a tribe and Algonquian is a language AND I’M CONFUSED). 

And now I want an Algonquian/Cree superhero named Whiskeyjack.

BUT

I don’t want to be culturally insensitive. I love making characters from different cultures because it lets me do research into different lifestyles and mythology and so on (and I’m sick of white OCs because as a white person I am just fucking sick of white people in the media and everywhere else).

So I’m asking the Algonquian and/or Cree people on Tumblr their thoughts on this? I don’t know how much of a faux pas dressing up and saving people under the name of what I understand to be some sort of Algonquian/Cree god would be? 

Also, I guess while I’m at it, would Wisakedjak be something/one that this hero could possibly communicate with or does Algonquian/Cree mythology not have their mythological figures as tangible beings?

God I hope I’m making sense and not being totally ignorant ._.

Please help?

I thought it would be a good idea to get a price sheet set up! This is for my digital work, and I’ll be doing one for my traditional work as well when I can! The price range varies on each commission, the cheapest price listed being a bust, and the highest price listed being a full body with a background. These prices are for single characters, adding extra characters increases the price, as does a more complex background :) I WILL DRAW NSFW although there are some kinks and fetishes I won’t draw (i.e. scat, fart, waterworks, cock vore, unbirthing) but don’t be afraid to ask to see what I will do! I work through PayPal only, no money orders or MoneyGrams etc, for simplicity and safety. My PayPal is Kialish@yahoo.com If you’re interested in a commission, just send me an Ask and we can get started from there! Or, if you want, you can go to my Weasyl, FurAffinity, or Deviantart (I am Kialish on all 3 of these) and send me a PM on there! all art pictured © Jordanna Cooke

Alright, question. I have to do a lot of physical activity, and I absolutely can’t do it in my binder. I’ve tried. It’s hell. I bought a sports bra to try and compromise with myself, but it triggered super bad dysphoria all day.

Is there something you guys can recommend that I buy instead, maybe like a compression bra or something that will allow me to breathe while being physical while maybe not triggering my dysphoria so badly?

Ugh bought a super cheap sports bra because the program I’m in has an Outdoor Pursuits and it means I’m outdoors and active two days out of the week. Today we’re going hiking.

I haven’t even been wearing it for an hour and already my dysphoria is horrid. I want my binder but I know wearing it while hiking in the mountains wouldn’t be a good idea.

Depending on how bad today goes…. I might end up wearing it for these outtings anyways.

I don’t understand, I have very little dysphoria when I’m wearing nothing, so why does wearing a sports bra multiply it hundredfold?

I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.

i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week

Supernatural is my favorite show.

Supernatural is also the show I hate most with my entire being.

I couldn’t not reblog this perfection okay.

Decided to post this one too. The second time Ian went to prison, he got forced into prostitution by a man named Leo. Ian escaped with Jason’s help, but not long after, Leo got out too. Jason disappeared for a few days and returned with the rapist in tow. Ian immediately tried to kill him, but Jason didn’t think he was thinking clearly enough to be able to make a decision on the fate of the man who had tormented him for months.

Death would have been a far kinder fate than what Jason put the poor fucker through.

A drabble I did that was supposed to focus on Ashley and his girlfriend Rebecca, and instead focused on Ashley’s adoptive parents’ reactions to Rebecca being trans. This is also an AU of an AU because Rebecca would have been Ashley’s best friend before his girlfriend so the likelihood of this legitimately being Ian’s first time meeting her is slim to none.

Anyways, warnings for in-character ignorance towards transgender people. He learns though, I promise.

How do you pronounce Saskatchewan? I've always said it suss (like cuss) skatch (like catch) uh (U in luck) wan (like son).

People from Saskatchewan say it like how nicolepole (currently third in the list) says it: http://www.forvo.com/word/saskatchewan/

Most non-Saskatchewanians that I’ve heard say it say sask-at-chew-awn (you can hear it all too well in the other pronunciations on that site I just linked).

It’s sas-kat-chew-en.

canadianstereotypes:

If you know how to pronounce and spell “Saskatchewan,” you may live in Canada.

Actually only people born and raised in Saskatchewan can pronounce Saskatchewan correctly.
