by all means call out john green on his bullshit don’t stand for one bit of it but while you’re at it don’t throw the 13 year old girls who read his books under the bus with him for crying over fictional boys and photoshopping flower crowns onto things and blogging about their social anxiety protect them at all fucking costs
basically a person doesn’t suddenly know and understand everything about a thing once they decide they are interested in it
"fake geek girl pretending to be interested in a thing but doesn’t know anything about it"
have you considered. that maybe she is showing an interest in a thing you like because that is what people do - we share things. we make conversation. we ask other people about stuff they like, and tell them about the stuff we like
maybe. she is interested in your thing. and she doesn’t know anything about it. because she would like you to tell her about it?
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
I’m the bad type of #feminist #radicalfeminism
Cus why not
Can’t believe I didn’t reblog this already
why are men…. men. how can you possibly given a full understanding of how patriarchy works continue to associate yourself with masculinity how could anyone in good conscience self identify as male this isnt even a rhetorical question like…. why are you doing that
Because I just am. I recognise, appreciate and celebrate that gender can be fluid and changeable for many people, and it’s fantastic, and I’d honestly love to be able to identify as non-binary in some way but I’m just… Not.
I’m a man. And that’s cool. Of course it doesn’t put me in the best of company. But I’m trying to be the best man that I can be.
not enough people talking about Tywin and Olenna’s scene. sassy, playful, with Tywin perfectly pulling off the grudging respect towards a woman he knows he shouldn’t like, but he can’t help admire and respect her
yeah tywin/cersei/oberyn/ellaria was badass, but THAT was my favourite scene
Jordan Davis would have turned 19 this year.
The black teen was killed in 2012 while sitting in a car with his friends outside a Jacksonville, Florida convenience store, listening to music.
That music was too loud for Michael Dunn. Following an argument over the volume, the 45-year-old man fired his gun into the car full of teenagers, killing Davis. Dunn told his fiancee the teens were playing “thug music.”
On the eve of Davis’ birthday, a mistrial was declared on the first-degree murder charge. The jury found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder and a count of firing into an occupied car.
While people struggled to make sense of the verdict, Jamie Nesbitt Golden kicked off the #dangerousblackkids hashtag on Twitter, with participants questioning a society where unarmed black kids are often interpreted as threats.
making a serious point about racism with adorable children yes good
