God bless them! 

THIS is OK because they are FOR HIRE. They are ALLOWED to refuse gay couples.

So now we know- no one but homophobes and bigots would spend their money there. Might as well rename your shit little shop “The Bigot Bakery” and be honest about it. 

It never stops to amaze me… How is it even possible that issues regarding sexual orientation and identity isn’t included in so many countries laws against discrimination? In Sweden it’s included in the legislation, and it’s absolutely illegal to discriminate against anyone for such reasons, even for the private sector.

Test Your Vocabulary: how many words do you know?

Most Native English adult speakers who have taken the test fall in the range 20,000–35,000 words. And for foreign learners of English, we’ve found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words.

I scored 21,500 FUCK YES

20800

NOT BAD AT ALL

32,000 apparently

gosh

29,500. got to work on that

Well I’d say my 16,700 words aren’t too bad for a non-native English speaker that’s never visited an English speaking country… but still. I’ve got to work on that.

I’m so fucking tired if being dumped and sad. I can’t even be mad, because I’m still in love. I’m getting sick of myself, I just want to have a sense of self back. I don’t like living alone. I loved living with her. I just can’t forgive myself for not being enough for her to stay in love with. When will I get at least myself back?

I’m sorry, are you incensed that the technology of automatic machine translation is not good enough to allow you to read every story ever written as if it was your birthright? Newsflash, sweetheart: it’s not your birthright.
First, translating is a bitch of a job, and Google is actually really not so bad at it, considering, although it’s really no wonder that it’s not “good enough” for literature (yes, fic is literature), and, thank $deity, we still need humans to do that job properly.
Meanwhile, the fact that other countries, cultures and languages exist is something to be _celebrated_, not deplored because it somehow deprives you of understanding/devouring every thing there is. Some things are not FOR you. You want to read that fic, why not try to learn that language or find an actual person to translate it?
END RANT.

Reblogging because I’m studying to be a translator and life’s gonna be hard with everyone thinking Google could do my job.

My girlfriend left me this Friday. We were together two years and I can’t believe how much I thought we were forever. She says she’s not in love anymore. She loves me, but she’s not in love. I thought we were past that, I thought we were bigger than that. I’m still in love. Crazy in love. I’ve been bawling my eyes out for days, she’s packing her things to move out of our apartment. I’m living at my mom’s. I’m getting one of the cats, Aslan, the only reason I didn’t have him was because she was allergic.

I have never experienced such sorrow. I feel like my hope died, like my entire life changed. I’m not good with change. I thought we were going to have kids, and have them soon, within two years. I believed. So much. And so did she for a very long time.

I can’t even be grateful. I haven’t done anything wrong. I didn’t see it coming. I can’t see how it could ever be okay again.

I can’t eat, sleep nor concentrate. I understand why people think love is in the heart. Because that’s what hurts. Someone is sitting on my chest.

What do I do with all this wasted love ?

((The ability to appreciate and evaluate human aesthetic is not determined by your sexuality))

For me it’s the other way around… I tell people that I can’t tell if a guy is good looking or not and they go “come on even though you’re a lesbian you’ve gotta be able to see that”. But for me it’s like people don’t even register beauty-wise after I find out they identify as male.

Weird but true!
