We are all humans.
whoa. just whoa
i love this photo
Why her face gotta be white
Nothing is good enough for you people, is it?
^^^^^^^^^^^ SERIOUSLY THO.
"i don’t care what she is, she could be purple."
i should just start telling people my favorite food is potatoes when they ask me. i usually say pasta. but there’s just so many ways to eat potatoes.
3am cravings are strange.
If you don’t think space is the tightest shit then you’re wrong
that last one (which is the same as one earlier in the set, just edited??) looks like an anteater with a party hat
still mad that they finally gave reid a girlfriend and then killed her
I have no reason to post this.
Other than it being my sole argument for anyone who thinks Eugene does not love Rapunzel.
Yeah, he died for her. That may not be enough for people.
This, though. Just look.
At first, it’s a ‘Oh yay, hugs! I think I’ve decided I like hugs! Haven’t had many, but this one is real nice!’
Then the realization hits. “Oh. Hey. She’s okay. She’s not going to spend her life healing the old lady and be locked away from the world anymore.” And he hugs her tighter.
And his eyebrows. “She’s okay she’s okay she’s okay she’s okay.”
The way his eyebrows lower. Eugene has an extremely expressive face. One may argue that the tightening is for her benefit. But that does not explain his mostly hidden expression. It’s just so well done and so incredibly beautiful and I applaud whoever plotted this scene.
I would continue, but the rest of my thoughts are basically “MY FEELS!” and “MY PRECIOUS BBY!” and all sorts of other phrases Tumblr has taught me when I forget how to can.
//You are making me cry!!!!!!
ARE WE NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW RAPUNZEL IS SHAKING IN THE FIRST COUPLE FRAMES
LIKE SHE IS PROBABLY SO OVERWHELMED WITH EMOTIONS OF LOSING A PERSON WITNESSING A MIRACLE AND SEEING THEM LIVE AGAIN THAT SHE JUST BURST INTO TEARS
WHILE HE WAS HOLDING HER IN HIS ARMS
^^AND AS SOON AS HE HUGGED HER TIGHTER SHE RELAXED. BECAUSE SHE REALIZED THAT HE IS THERE AND ALIVE AND SHE’S ALIVE AND EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY
wow i never thought i’d be jealous of a cartoon character’s hug before.
my family is making it more difficult to organize christmas than it should be.
Elsa + Jack Frost Parallels
am i the only one thinking they should meet
Well, I accidentally slept in really late. I have some family coming over for Christmas and we’re playing some game that involves a gift exchange. That’s pretty much it though. My family’s never been big on doing a whole lot for Christmas.
i hate when change.org petitions label it as something that seems ridiculous to get fired/put in jail/whatever for and then you read it and it turns out that wasn’t even the reason. do they think people only read the titles and decide they should sign or?
accidentally hurting an animal is the worst feeling i would rather die one thousand deaths than step on a doggy’s innocent lil foot
they just look at you like “i am sorry i dont know what i did but i am very sorry i’ll stay out of your way” no lil doggy dont leave me
my mom once was trying to get my cat to play with a belt and accidentally hit her in the face while showing it to her. my cat ran off and then would run from the belt whenever she saw it.
she gets in the way of everything and omg.
I don’t like how society has a way of stamping these stupid labels on everything and turning it into more of a popular topic of discussion rather than actually trying to solve the issue. It’s as if it is fun to talk about these things just to have something to say. As if its a new movie or a new song or a new pair of fucking shoes or something.
There is a culture based solely on rape? Really?
It is obviously a problem. I don’t think anyone that reads this would disagree that rape is wrong. But is there really a culture that revolves around the premise of rape? No.
Rape is the lack of self control within individuals. They are not coordinated. They aren’t coming together for rape ceremonies and shit.
This is an individual psychological issue. It is not something that should be turned into a label, or an image, and tossed to the side with the rest of societies issues.
This is a main reason why almost nothing gets done in this country. You cannot create these memes around serious problems and expect a solution to come of it. People ENJOY talking about these issues rather than actually looking to solve them. We create an atmosphere around these issues that works against finding solutions for them and works more towards making it a fad! This is not a fad! The point of addressing issues such as rape is not so that you can boost your ego with your own opinions about it. It is about solving the crisis and moving forward. As long as you ENJOY talking about these things, they will not be solved.
The solutions are WITHIN not without. You cannot fix an issue by making it a mainstream talking point. There must be internal work done to develop self respect and self control.
End rant transmission..
i’m not sure what you’re getting at here. (and i know what you’re thinking, you were probably expecting me to say something) rape culture is telling a woman she was asking for it because she wore a short skirt or drank a little too much or went out alone at night, telling the victim she ruined her rapist’s life, or making fun of a man because he was overpowered or laughing at him for saying a woman raped him. rape culture associates rape/sexual violence with the culture of a society whose attitudes condone, excuse, or normalize rape.
and our society does. saying she has ruined the rapist’s life (ex: the steubenville case) condones rape. (maybe that’s not the right word, but my point still stands. we do not treat rape the way we should.) the legal system does not always do the proper thing. ex: the teacher who raped his student and then only got 30 days in jail after she committed suicide due to being raped, and i think his sentence was even reduced after that. rape is normalized by rape jokes. it’s normalized by victim blaming, because if she’s going to wear that or drink that, people say she should expect it to happen. it’s just the attitudes people have towards rape - any attitude other than “it’s wrong.” that is rape culture.
using the term rape culture is not simply a means of talking about it without doing anything. the idea of rape culture is to raise awareness to how we as a society treat rape and rapists and to raise awareness to rape and sexual violence. there are slut walks to show how ridiculous victim blaming is. there are rallies. many people who use the term rape culture don’t just sit at home and complain on their blogs. even though that does help raise awareness as well. if we do not bring awareness, we cannot work to solve the problem.
please, if you choose to respond, do some research/reading on this well put together blog. it explains rape culture better than i could. i suggest the FAQ page as well.
so not long ago i discovered that i can easily make my nose crack and let me just tell you i do not like that. omg. i don’t know how i never noticed it before. but it’s so gross.
one of my favorite episodes of friends is when all the guys find out rachel’s pregnant and condoms aren’t always that effective
"they should put it in huge black letters!"
"okay ross come on let’s just forget about the condoms."
"oh well i may as well have!"
like, i would just caption this about how hard i’m laughing, but i’m actually mad
as a woman, as a girl, i am taught that men automatically hate me. we’re taught that they are supposed to tease us and pull our hair on the playground, we’re taught that they only think about sex and that it is normal for them to proposition us at fourteen, that it is expected for them to pass around our nudes and make anonymous accounts dedicated to rating our bodies. we are taught that we need to be careful, because it is normal for them to assault us, and for them to hit us, and boys will be boys, and if we don’t look feminine enough they will hit us and call us slurs, and if we look too feminine they cannot help themselves, and if these things happen to us it is our fault because-
I AM TAUGHT THAT I DESERVE TO BE HATED: by every commercial we see full of thin white models with perfect skin and hair, by advertisements promising to eliminate disgusting stretch marks that we hate ourselves for at twelve, by every magazine with tips for toning and lifting parts of our bodies we didn’t know we had to care about, by every police officer who has ever asked us if we were asking for it, by every job that turned us down because we didn’t look nice enough or we made ourselves too pretty and looked too dumb; by every man who ever joked about women being dumber, slower, weaker, worse drivers. we are taught that when we need help we are needy and crazy; we are taught that when we are passionate we are hysterical; when we are in charge we’re bitches. we are told we are always in competition. we are told to mold every part of our brains and bodies to fit what other people want and we are told this is because we are not good enough on our own!!!
i associate this culture with feeling like shit; with when we are raped and people ask us to retract our accusations because we wouldn’t want to RUIN A MAN’S LIFE, now WOULD WE, with when twelve-year-old girls go on binging diets and when we are paid less for the same work and when there are countless barrages on our self-worth and confidence, when we are literally told to kill ourselves for having hair where it is not acceptable, and when everyone fucking refuses to recognize this.
i hope you read this, anonymous, from months ago. i hope you fucking read this and you think about why your input about how feminism hurts your feelings is not relevant. it does not matter when the thing you are commenting on is a poem titled “FOR THE MEN WHO STILL DON’T GET IT”. why don’t you GET IT, dude?
i am sorry you are sad, hurt, and angry. you have probably never thought that anyone hated you based on your gender before.
not only that but many feminists believe that men’s rights are just as important because they are also affected by patriarchy.
