LGBT+ Acronyms===== About Acronyms =====LGBT+ Acronyms6 hours ago in Articles & Interviews
This is a heated subject, and many LGBT+ people have their own preferences for an acronym. But there really is no one right acronym. The idea that there is a single "LGBT+ community" assumes all groups in the acronym have the same problems, goals, and needs, across the world, which is very untrue.
It is always preferred to refer to specific groups. EX, if you're talking about non-hetero orientations, don't say gay. Say non-straight or LGBA. If you're talking about sodomy or marriage laws, though, don't say non-straight or LGBA. LGBT or LGBTI is more relevant. If you're talking about homophobia, LGB. Etc, etc.
Although a single community doesn't exist, what does exist is spaces. A "space" is something set aside for a specific group. A space can be a club, an organization, a resource, a meetup, a network, a publication, a blog, even a post or deviation. A space may be geared for people of the specified group only, or it may include a

There was a Captain America: Civil War trailer that got released on Tuesday night. It's amazing! I have to go see it! Oh Captain America! Why are you beating up Iron Man? Well, he deserves it, so I'm not complaining. I didn't see Spiderman...or Ant-Man. Phooey. I did see Black Panther, whoever that is. I have to wait until May to see this awesome movie? Well, that's gonna be a while. I'll be the first one in line. Let's go, Team Captain America!

It's my first day of working at the external company. It's a subsidiary from Ergon, who seems to be taking on most of these people. It's a cloth washery. Here they take on the laundry of several different care institutions - homes for the elderly and/or mentally handicapped. All pieces of cloth have a little barcode in them that also has the name of the institution and the name of the owner.
The washery is located in Veldhoven - about an hour cycling for me, and work starts at 8:00. I woke up at 6AM to be sure I'd get there on time, since I do get lost frequently. Since the location just happens to be exactly where my father used to work 20-odd years ago, he was able to give me a good route. I find it without much difficulty beyond heavy traffic.
So easily that I'm 40 minutes early. I'm told to wait in the canteen until 8, then report back for duty. The woman in charge is somewhat bewildered at me not having brought anything - no money or food - to lunch. I cou

It’s hard to define what inspired many of my stories as I have had many, many inspirations. Be warned if you don’t wanna read what my inspirations are, or you don’t know who I am, hit the back button NOW.
From what I know, Newgrounds played a big part of developing my sense of humor for them as I used to watch many videogame sprite movies when I was in college and it was break time. Seth McFarlane’s work such as Family Guy, American Dad and the Cleveland Show all play a big part in my inspiration too, (although nowadays I don’t watch much of his work as it got stale to me.) South Park was also a huge inspiration too. (Ditto what I have to say about Parker and Stone’s work nowadays.)
Many webshows such as AVGN and the Nostalgia Critic ,were also a huge inspiration too, (even though I now dislike the NC for picking on stuff I like way too many times, plus his humor got stale to me. Sorry fans! While I still
Will America burn for Political Correctness?Will America burn for Political Correctness?6 days ago in Articles & Interviews
When we are facing the possibility to be eradicated by a powerful enemy, it boggles the mind when people, who are also in danger of being killed are trying to prevent our military (even some of our own government) from defending us against this threat!
^I think is the best answer ive seen as far as using the "peaceful Muslims" argument as deterrent for facing Islamist extremists.
We hire our government and train our army to defend us against this, why not let them do their jobs before we end up under martial law under a new set of revamped rights under who knows who's dictatorship!
They are piling into our country through open borders, and armed by the presidents "Fast and Furious" act. If you know to pray, do so. if you know the Bible, you know the possibility of our country being under final judgment; as in the order mentioned when a people are to be destroyed (immoral

Paulo Ribeiro: Os anos sabáticos são um luxo do século XX. Hoje em dia o privilégio é o trabalho.”
Retirado da revista E, suplemento da edição nº 2245 do Expresso
Antes de hoje ter lido a pequena entrevista da qual retirei esta breve secção, tinha a ideia de que o “ano sabático” era a licença que o professor universitário podia tirar, durante o respetivo período de tempo, para ser dispensado das aulas e poder concentrar-se nas suas investigações. Ou então o termo referia-se ao período que o aluno indeciso tira entre o fim do ensino secundário e o ingresso nos estudos superiores, de forma a aclarar o rumo que pretende dar à sua vida. Mas hoje, ao encontrar o termo empregue tal como no excerto supra-transcrito, apercebo-me que a expressão se alarga para também denomina

WARMany people died by many causes some died by sickness others by accidents and some just die in their sleep, there’s a lot of ways to die but they all lead to one thing and one place death and your soul is in the hand of Allah after that, but what about the death of war its different then other ways cause when a member of your family dies in a war to protect his family and his country the loss of his soul will hurt but you’ll also feel proud cause he died with an honor but still his loss effects many people not only the family but those who are close to him to so my question here is why choosing war? Why can’t we find another choice? ill never deny that fighting to protect your country and your family is a great honor but it’s also a great burden, because in a war when you fight you’ll have to take a soul to win, a soul that doesn’t belong to you and when you take it to win a war you will feel proud cause he was threatening your country but also youWAR1 week ago in Articles & Interviews

Look, I know there are a lot of dumb people in our country, but come on! We need to start accepting these refugees. Our country is not exclusive to Americans. In case you haven't been reading news lately, a lot of states in the U.S. are refusing to accept Syrian refugees. The UN appealed to us to try and show an example to the world. Oh, let them come for god's sake. We won't discriminate based on background. That's not who we are...

VaccinesWhy are vaccines not good for you and do more bad than any good they can do? In this report I will reveal the secrets of the dangers in vaccines and list a page full of reliable sources were I got my information. So, let's get started.Vaccines1 week ago in Articles & Interviews
First of all vaccines have many bad chemicals and possibly toxic medicines that are very bad for you and your health. Some of these include MSG, formaldehyde, glycerin, and lead. Trust me there are many many more that you do not want to be in you body.
Formaldehyde is a colorless gas often used in making household cleaning products and for making other chemicals. Formaldehyde is dissolved into water for use in the vaccination and is used in the food industry. When tested on animals it was found that it does cause cancer.
Although lead is obviously bad for you you may not know why the acetone it contains is. Acetone is used in nail polish and can seriously harm you. Plus many vaccines have thimerosal a very popular chemical in the articles i've been
First Impressions: Tales of SymphoniaWow, I haven't done a first impressions of... well, anything in quite a while, at least not since Final Fantasy VII, and speaking of JRPGs, I'm now talking about another RPG, and this one is Tales of Symphonia, a game I've been looking forward to play for quite a while. Now, I have very little familiarity with RPGs as a whole, since so far, the only RPGs I played was Final Fantasy VII and X (liked VII, didn't care for X), the Mass Effect Trilogy (loved them) and so far, this one, and what do I think of Symphonia? Well, it's pretty good so far, and, while this is a sort of controversial opinion, I think that Symphonia is better than FF VII, and especially FF X, although I will replay 10 later on, but not right now, since I don't really have much time nowadays to play a lot of games and watch a lot of TV since I work 5 or 6 days a week at my job, going to the gym to work out 3 times a week, and practicing guitar for 45 minutes a day every day, so I try to use whatever free time IFirst Impressions: Tales of Symphonia2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews

Writing Tips - Blank Page SyndromeSo you've got your novel or whatever all plotted out. You know what's going to happen each second of the way through. You know all of your main characters to the point of having written a full biography on each of them, including the waiter in chapter 3 who has like two lines of dialogue. You've got your favorite writing music playing on repeat. You've opened up a Word or Google Doc, your fingers ready to go. And yet... you just can't get started. You have no idea where to begin, and anything you try to type just feels weird and awkward. Such is the case of Blank Page Syndrome. The absolute hardest part of writing is getting started, and getting over this. It's not quite writer's block... you know what you want to do, and you could write another story if you want to, but you just can't start this particular novel. And you love this work you're about to begin on. You've been thinking about it so much that proofreading your last work has been a pain in the ass because this new idea keepsWriting Tips - Blank Page Syndrome2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews

CALLING TO ALL FILIPINO DEVIANTS!
This is my first time hosting an event like this, but I really want to do it though!!
RULES AND GUIDELINE:
All you need to do is to post a picture or draw yourself (No OCs!) wearing a Santa hat and holding out a Christmas gift. Not just any gift box though, the gift itself must have a tag that says "thank you for the love" on it. The gift tag should be noticeable!
The only rule is that you must draw it yourselves (if drawing), and that's it!
Send the picture to me by adding the hashtag #thankyouforthelove in the tags list!
Even if this project may not get any viewers at all, thank you to all the people who stopped to read this. I know I am an amateur when it comes to deviantart itself. But even so, I won't give up on this project, so I ask you Filipinos to help me out. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

But this post is not about those lost souls. It is about the more insidious authoritarian extremist groups who have already begun to spin the web of false propaganda in the media.
Already I have seen the exact same statement being used by different reporters on separate news channels almost verbatim. It goes something as follows “what can be done to detect these terrorists?” reporter replies “the FBI says these terrorists are using encryption to ‘go dark’ and hide their communications”.
The FBI has already sent a team to Paris to “help” in the investigation but I would be willing to bet I already know what their findings will be. They will say that the
