I haven’t played The Airport Game since like…2012. BUT I AM FEELING NOSTALGIC AND BORED SO LET’S DO IT!
Here are the rules to this classic time wasting game: Go here and click the green go button to be dropped off somewhere random on google maps. You can be dropped off literally anywhere on Earth! Your goal is to find an airport so you can “get home.” For hard mode, hide your location under options and don’t use any outside sources to figure out where you are!
GOOD LUCK! YOU WILL NEED IT!!!
OMG! Why?! Why would you do this to me?! I am stuck somewhere in the middle of, I think Latvia. I’ve passed, like 3 buildings. I’ve “walked” at least ten miles and have not seen a paved road yet.
Can you imagine wings just being a normal part of everyday life like imagine
- Stepping out of the shower and blow drying your wings each morning before work
- Sitting back in a chair and having them flop over the back lazily
- Shielding yourself from the sudden rain with your thick feathers
- Waking up in the morning with bedhead and bedfeathers
// NO BUT REALLY THESE THOUGHTS CONSUME MY LIFE
- Having the windspeeds and ground temperatures being part of weather broadcasts (for flying)
- Discrimination based on what bird your wings are (ravens having bad omens, etc)
- Still having public transport for long journeys/cold days
- - Shuffling wings part of the noise while on said public transport
- Landing grids on top of houses for people landing on the way home
- People being able to read wings like expressions - angry people puffing up like chickens
- Shows on how to make your wings super glossy and pretty or ruffled (for that just-landed look!)
- Prosthetic wings for people who have damaged, disabled, small or missing wings.
- Growth spurts being preceded by an embiggening of the wings - teenagers wandering around with MASSIVE wings on itty bitty bodies.
- Wing covers for inclement weather.
- Wing jewelry!
- The crossing of wings when displeased (like crossing ones arms)
- TRAFFIC RULES IN THE SKY
- No fly zones
- Clipping a child’s wings in specific ways to keep them from being able to fly very far or very high.
- BIRD CALLS
- Also, hawk shrieks when greatly surprised or offended.
- When in PE, having your teacher tell you to spread out wing-length apart.
- Vestments to keep your child attached to you while flying, so they can practice but also be safe and be able to rest if they get tired.
- Diving competitions and world records for longest dive or fastest dive
- Instead of having the dog been domesticated, certain raptor species are “man’s best friend”.
- Also, just going out on a limb, but having someone pet your wings probably feels amazing.
violet: one thing you love
Ohhhh noooo just one thing?? That’s so hard…that’s so hard…
Because I’m tempted to be like “BUBBLE TEA” xD but- everyone knows that already.
I don’t like many material “things” so I’m gonna go with- activism, as a thing I love. I love helping others and trying to make the world a safer, more accepting, and understanding place.
this hedgehog is cheering for u bc u can do anything
If we want our community to be inclusive, you need to listen to our points of view.
There is no homogenous experiences in the ace community. What aces of colour deal with is not the same as what white aces deal with.
Asexuality does not exist in a vacuum, and must be examined and talked about in a critical fashion.
You must understand that there are groups of people who have had asexuality (different than our understanding of it but still the same word) forced on them or have been hypersexualized beyond compare and cannot access asexual spaces in the same way due to racism.
Asexuality (and things like it) have an old history in certain groups, and it is vital to understand that.
You can’t approach the experiences of aces of colour from a white perspective; you can’t. Because you won’t understand.
Our community is multicultural, and it is important that our discourse reflects it.
I’m reminded of what I was talking about at the International Asexuality Conference at the Asexuality and Ethnicity panel I was asked to be apart of: “You cannot parse my asexuality from my race. They are not separate. You cannot fully understand my experiences if you break them apart.”
We are apart of this community
If asexuality discourse does not actively include aces of colour or have our voices dominate in discussions of our experiences with racism and the impact it has had on our asexuality, then it will be inaccurate.
Nah, Ace of Diamonds - cause we’re rare and shiny. :)
I don’t think we’ve ever gone that far and given demiromantics a suit.
Yes rare and shiny ;)
You go, Kiowa. You go! <3
