Questions for CharactersBeyond The Basics in Building CharactersQuestions for Characters by SlytherinsHeiress
(Or making your 'house' come alive with interesting tchotchkes)
This isn't going to be the typical character questionnaire that asks what the character's height, religion, job, ect. I like knowing things about characters beyond their likes, their height and weight, parents' names, and such. I like putting them in hypothetical situations and watching them come alive, so to speak. If naming and assigning appearance to a character is laying the foundation and giving them background information is building the house, then think of this questionnaire as filling the place with tchotchkes! Sure, you might not mention Bob's scaly feet in your story, but it's nice to know something about him besides his being five feet three inches tall and bald. Yeah, there are 75 questions. I'm sure there are other things I could have asked, but have fun with the ones I have here.
1. Would your character rob a bank if they knew they could get away with it?

'Feminazi', everything wrong with that wordThe Word "Feminazi" - A rant.
I absolutely, positively, loathe this word. At seeing it written, I am immediately enraged, and want to find the writer and inform them of just how awful of a word it is. My blog, it seems, will serve as the medium for my message; if you use this word, or if you are as offended by it as I am (or more so!) then this post is for you.
I live, work and go to school in the same place, York University. Now, the Keele Campus has an unfortunate reputation of being a hot-spot for sexual assaults; there have been frequent publications within the student newspapers and in
7 things that hinder Trans allyshipThese 7 Assumptions About Non-Binary Folks May Be Hindering Your Trans Allyship
So you’ve got the 101 stuff out of the way. Gender and sex are different. There are more than two genders. Non-binary people exist. It’s not a phase, and we’re here, and we’re queer.
You might be thinking, “Awesome! Now I know all the things I need to know, and I can go forth into my allyship without anything else to worry about!”
Uh, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but not so fast…
I am sad to report that I am still hearing weird, inaccurate things about my gender. Even from allies, no less! I thought we had an understanding here, y’all.
Non-binary folks are still being dehumanized and misunderstood, and it’s time that we address it, especially within the communities that work to advocate for us.
And yes, your words do matter. These myths matter
Why I don't associate with Egaliscumprochoice-or-gtfo:
“egalitarians” are all missing the point of that post, which is both hilarious and expected.
like they’re sitting there shouting that they believe in equality, but a piece of shit could tell it’s chocolate, and I’m still not going to eat it. Hell, many branches of the KKK are trying to say they’re not about racism any more, but if you buy that their “white nationalism” shit isn’t racism, I’ve got a castle in Old Valyria I would like to sell you.
the problem with tumblr “egalitarians” is that they completely ignore context, and a lot of this is due to willful ignorance on their parts.
Fatphobia: A Guide for the DisbelieverFatphobia: A Guide for the Disbeliever
When I talk about fatphobia, I'm often viewed with confusion and disbelief. I mean, we laugh at fat jokes, discuss at length banning fat marriage, make comments about how fat people should exercise or kill themselves. We may be threatened with murderfor making a documentary on fatness.
But fatphobia isn't real, right?
First, a little bit about me. I'm an American who has lived on one coast or the other, who has spent extended time in Poland and in London. I've been familiar with fatphobia my whole life, as my mother is fat, my grandmother is fat, and I became fat during my teenage years due to a combination
