Cassie's Place

Hey everyone! I'm Cassie, a white transwoman living in the beautiful city of Portland! Currently hoping to move in next year with my lovely boyfriend, whose pony OC you can see in my avatar. Also, I have an NSFW blog that you can find a link to at the top of the page.

Pinkie is in Twilight’s bed, and no one can stop me from tagging this “Twinkie.”

They totally spent the night together and now Twilight’s going out for a bit to get some stuff and is like “I’ll be right back babe”!

She’s clearly going out to pick up breakfast.

ENABLERS.

:D :D :D :D :D

All of the congratulations Cassie!

Thanks all! I’m super super buzzing with excitement and joy over it. I’ve had such a dark cloud hanging over me lately, and this lifted me right out of that into the glorious, beautiful sunlight.

It’ll be next Tuesday that I think we’ll be able to know for sure, but as I said in my tags, I feel super confident that we have it. Just gotta be totally sure first before I make any radical changes.

Currently taking the Can we guess who you are in 20 questions? thing, because a couple friends took it. So does this ball pit look like fun? I can’t look at ball pits the same way again after seeing the kerfluffle of DashCon 2014.

Edit: My quiz results were mostly wrong.

Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are male.
2. You are still a teenager, but won’t be one for very much longer.
3. You’re in college and are already worried about finding the perfect job that will be both fulfilling and will pay well. Your future worries you more than you’d like to admit.
4. You have beautiful, silky brown hair and big eyes.
5. You know that if you’d only believe in yourself more, things would be much easier for you. Yet you still doubt your instincts more than you should, instead of trusting them every time.

1. You are male. 
2. You are in currently in your mid 30’s.
3. You are married and just became a parent. You are experiencing exciting days, and more are on their way, but through it all you remain strong, loving and deeply caring. 
4. You have short hair - partly gray, brown eyes and a fit body.
5. You decided long ago that your kids must have a better childhood than the one you had. You know you’ll do anything to make sure of that.

COULD THEY BE MORE WRONG??????

Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are male. (Nope, nonbinary)
2. You are still a teenager, but won’t be one for very much longer. (nope, I’m 25)
3. You’re in college and are already worried about finding the perfect job that will be both fulfilling and will pay well. Your future worries you more than you’d like to admit. (isn’t this true of like everyone?)
4. You have beautiful, silky brown hair and big eyes. (It’s brown, at least.)
5. You know that if you’d only believe in yourself more, things would be much easier for you. Yet you still doubt your instincts more than you should, instead of trusting them every time. (okay this is spot on)

Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are female. (Yes!)
2. You are currently in your mid 40’s. (What the fuck, no. I’m 27! D:)
3. You are raising a beautiful family, you have a career you’re quite pleased with. (Ah, that’s a no to both.)
4. You’ve recently started volunteering in your community. (Kinda sorta?)
5. You are taller than average, you have gorgeous dark hair and beautiful brown eyes. (Okay this is true, though the eye color is slightly off, in that my eyes are those color changing eyes that are pretty boss.)

It’s 12:45 AM. I’m watching my boyfriend sleep, as cute as he can be. Been spending the past couple of days at his place… I was going to come back earlier today, and indeed one of my managers even tried to get me to work today (fat chance with me working the next six days in a row.) So glad I didn’t though.

Because the game has changed.

There is… a chance. A very good chance. That my boyfriend and I can move in together far sooner than we thought. The details are, well, damned good, though best kept for now. And even if I didn’t get this Winco job I was hoping for, as seems likely now, it won’t matter too much.

I’m leaping on this opportunity with all of my might. It is, quite simply, incredible.

“We went to Kineshma, that’s in Ivanovo region, to visit his parents. I went as a heroine and I never expected someone to welcome me, a front-line girl, like that. We’ve gone through so much, we’ve saved lives, lifes of mothers, wives. And then… I heard accusations, I was bad-mouthed. Before that I’ve only ever been “dear sister”… We had tea and my husband’s mother took him aside and started crying: “Who did you marry? A front-line girl… You have two younger sisters. Who’s going to marry them now?” When I think back to that moment I feel tears welling up. Imagine: I had a record, I loved it a lot. There was a song, it said: you have the right to wear the best shoes. That was about a front-line girl. I had it playing, and [his?] elder sister came up and broke it apart, saying: you have no rights. They destroyed all my photos from the war… We, front-line girls, went through so much during hte war… and then we had another war. Another terrible war. The men left us, they didn’t cover our backs. Not like at the front.” from С.Алексеевич “У войны не женское лицо”

In Soviet Union women participating in WWII were erased from history, remaining as the occasional anecdote of a female sniper or simply as medical staff or, at best, radio specialists. The word “front-line girl” (frontovichka) became a terrible insult, synonimous to “whore”. Hundreds thousand of girls who went to war to protect their homeland with their very lives, who came back injured or disabled, with medals for valor, had to hide it to protect themselves from public scorn. 

This has always happened in history: Women do something important. Then they get shamed for it (so nobody will talk about it) and it gets erased from history.

And then certain men will say: “Women suck, they’ve never done anything important.”

Look into history and learn that women have played a far greater role then douches (present and past) wanted you to know.

Hey Will (and Jack) I got you something.

So this is important. Let me tell you a story.

All the time I spend debating about women in combat, I’ve picked up on a trend that disturbs me. Supporting or attacking, people are quick to draw on biology, psychology, law, but very rarely - almost never - do I hear about the history of women in combat, and the evidence their service lends to this debate.

Hundreds of thousands of women faced combat in WW2, and on both sides, and on all fronts, and it is a history that has been almost completely erased from contemporary awareness. I have been given arguments about how women can not psychologically handle combat. And about how women in mixed-gender combat units will automatically disrupt group cohesion - the brotherhood, if you will. Both of these assertions are erasure.

Women have not lived in a protective bubble untouched by combat for all of history. Women have been killed, wounded, and captured in combat, and tortured after. We are not living a world where these are hypothetical situations women have yet to prove they can handle. Unfortunately, they have, they can, in the future, they probably will, again and again. Soviet women served as partisans, snipers, tank drivers, fighter pilots, bombers. And more.

Both British and American women served in mixed-gender AA units. I could drag you through several examples of British women performing exemplarily despite being wounded, or seeing their comrades die. The Luftwaffe did not discriminate. Between the British and the Americans, it was determined that mixed gender units actually performed much better than all male units, because of teamwork. Because women are better and certain tasks, men are better at certain tasks, and at other tasks they are comparably efficient, and in a team, hopefully, in combat, you let the best do what they are best at. For the most part, they were proud to serve together. 

German propaganda never commented on the British AA units, but they thoroughly smeared the Soviet fighting woman - flitenweiber. People often argue with me that women are a threat to group cohesion because men naturally give women preferential treatment. Which certainly explains why men are more likely to survive shipwrecks. And history shows us that Germans soldiers had no chivalrous compunction when it came to shooting captured Soviet women who were armed.

We’re fed a history of war that almost exclusively features white male figures, most of whom fit into this destructive constructed myth of the soldier that is somehow both chivalrous and charmingly womanizing and who’s sense of brotherhood is unshakably dependent on the band being all man. There is no history of woman at war, none. I hear a lot about how women have no upper body strength, I hear nothing about the Front-Line Female Comrade.

THE WORD FRONTOVICHKA BECAME A TERRIBLE INSULT - are you fucking kidding me? Fuck, that made me cry. At first when I started reading I thought I was reading alernate history fiction. I’m ashamed to be ignorant about this, and full of rage and much worse bitter shame that this history is constantly repressed, suppressed, hidden. WHAT THE FUCK. D: D: D:

I didn’t know that bit about the AA (Anti-Aircraft) units.

And even in this article I don’t see a mention of the women of the Israeli Army, or women of the resistance if we’re just sticking to WWII.  I didn’t know about the Russian soldiers, only the fighter pilots, the night witches, and I’ve spent years poking into the corners of history trying to find women who will serve as ammunition when men tell me women can’t fight. 

The best explanation I’ve heard of what happened to women after WWII comes from “A League of Their Own,” the publicist’s character: “What is this—the war is over, Rosie, turn in your rivets?”  Women all over the world had to step into the same old ruts.

I don’t think it’s any mistake at all that Betty Friedan wrote her ground-breaking text for the second wave of feminism, THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE, just 10 years after WWII, after women had dined on a full plate of the same old, same old.

And shame on the men who never stood up for the women who worked and fought beside them, and saved their lives.

Character switch: Pinkie - Rarity by StasySolitude

I’ve become suddenly obsessed with the idea of switching characters of mane 6. There cutiemarks and talents are the same - the only thing changed are their personalities (and their appearance a little bit).
So here are the first AU pair.
Pinkie is still the Element of Laughter - she is well-known for her clever, sharp and sometimes dark humor and impeccable sense of style. She prefers to give humoristic concerts and hopes that someday she will become famous all over Equestria. Being under spotlites is her main desire. But Pinkie is still a great friend, who’ll always find a way to cheer somepony close to her.
Rarity in opposite is crazy, optimistic and cheeful pony. She is very talanted in design and making dresses, and this is her main obsession. Art is literally her life. Rarity loves her work, but sometimes her light-heartedness stand in the way. But she believes that one day her hard work will be rewarded.

I think i will draw more switches with some other MLP characters in future =)

Cute! Very creative idea. Please do more!

Okay but Never Gonna Give You Up (better known as Rickroll) is actually a really really horrible song for many reasons, which I will better explain under the cut. 

Brace yourselves, this is pretty long.

Maybe you can mix chocolate syrup or ovaltine into vanilla ice cream? Unless the vanilla ice creams have egg in them, too…

Oh! That’s… that’s a great idea! Okay. Next time I’ll pick up a gallon of vanilla, and some stuff like that, as I was looking and didn’t see any eggs in the vanilla!

Every kind. Every. Single. Kind. At my grocery store.

Every kind of chocolate ice cream… uses eggs.

Why, world? Why does all the chocolate use eggs?

This makes me sad…
