What's the difference between being a poseur and being new to the gothy culture? Sometimes it feels like the same thing... =/

gothiccharmschool:

Honestly? I think poseur is a term thrown around by elitist types who are feeling a teensy bit insecure about their “coolness” in comparison to everyone else.

The ONLY thing that would make me think “poseur” is if someone professed interest or knowledge in something but were fibbing in order to make themselves feel cooler. If you’re new to gothy culture, fantastic! Go forth and explore, and be thrilled that you will get to experience it for the first time! Don’t feel you have to act knowledgable and jaded; if someone mentions something you haven’t heard of, ask them about it. If they scoff at you or call you a poseur in response, the problem is with them, not you.

(There is no Elder Goth Cabal, and if there WAS, it would be more interested in introducing people to our spooky wonderland, not being cranky gother-than-thou gatekeepers.)

so in Japanese, we sang Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

here’s a general gist of the translation:

Rudolph had a shiny nose
no one liked him
he cried every night
then one Christmas it was dark
Santa decided Rudolph’s nose was convenient (literally it says convenient)
Rudolph was useful.

I SHIT YOU NOT.

That’s basically the song without all of the fluff, though.

IT’S LIKE A VULCAN CHRISTMAS CAROL

Hey guys, so we started a fundraiser of sorts for people who can’t afford abortion, or baby supplies. 

here is the link to donate 

and even if you can’t donate, can you please share it around. We really want to help out in anyway we can.

and if you need money for check-ups, baby supplies, ultrasounds, abortions, etc. We know it cost a lot and we’re here to help!
