guys this is honestly my favorite self-referential lyrical progression
"How the Media Failed Women in 2013," courtesy of Miss Representation. This is mind-boggling and you must watch it right now.
I bet they’re listening to Pompeii by Bastille, remembering the good old days
Are we really so different that we must be horrified of one of them uncovered, and completely okay with the other?
this is now my most favorited post ever
Buy Bo Burnham’s “Egghead” poetry book or you will regret your entire life probably.
"According to reports, the sadly disfigured 26-year-old’s quality of life has been greatly diminished due to such a condition. Sources said the abnormal, visibly blemished creature has been repeatedly passed over for employment opportunities, frequently gawked at and harassed on the street by total strangers, and has faced near constant discrimination for over two decades, all due to the horrific and debilitating birth defect."
IT’S CIRCLING MY CAR
THIS IS BY FAR MY NEW FAVORITE VIDEO.
That made me remember this which is one of my NEW FAVORITE VIDEOs once.
i got 99 problems and 97 of them are due by the end of the week
Yo I’m in your bed why are you writing a paper and not snuggling my face off?
what i’d really like is for someone to objectively watch me for a week or so and then just sit down with me for a few hours and explain to me what i am like and how i look to others and what my personality is in detail and how i need to improve where do i sign up for that
hey celia! i’m gonna make this public so that anyone else who might have questions about this might read it and get informed - OR call me out if i am actually incorrect or saying something wrong. :)
okay SO i read about it on a person’s tumblr post (that i like cannot find anymore so i am sorry i can’t link you to it) but i will try to explain it the best that i can.
the term ‘slut shaming’ immediately brings forth the notion that being a “slut” is something you CAN shame. maybe even something you should. the whole movement ‘against slut shaming’ acknowledges that you can shame a person for having a lot of sex, etc etc. sort of making it a social norm. (that is the part of the argument that i’m a little cloudy with so if this doesn’t make sense maybe the second part will…)
SECONDLY, it’s a shaming term because the term ‘slut’ bears with it negative connotations. some people like to reclaim the phrase which is cool for them! but for those individuals that do not, it can actually be hurtful to hear and can be very detrimental. it’s almost a backhanded defense, in that it tries to defend people from shaming, but also shames them by using an offensive slang. like, why do we have to call it SLUT shaming, if we’re gonna defend against something why can’t it be sex shaming, something that doesn’t isolate a single group [i.e. those who choose to have sex maybe more often and with more people than others] under a single negative connotation?
i hope this makes sense oh lord!
I’ve been up for an hour and I literally have no motivation to get out of bed. I’m not even tired, but I just can’t do it! Whyyyyyyyyyy
