i’m actually amazed i haven’t heard more people talking about the moment sansa assists tyrion in this ep. sansa choosing to assist tyrion is a Huge Deal considering the situation - joffrey is publically humiliating him, making a big, ugly display of his power. and simply…
out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory
like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that every kid on the team gets a trophy and is told they did a good job; they can also see that not every kid on the team deserves a trophy, and not everyone did do a good job
the logical conclusion to draw from this is not “i’m great and i deserve praise”— it’s “no matter how mediocre i am, people will still praise me to make me feel better, so i can’t trust any compliments or accolades i receive”
this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.
where did this whole “ugh millennials think their so-so work is super great” thing even come from it is a goddamn mystery
“Why is it people always get so upset about Affirmative Action but not about legacies? For some reason we’re ok with the historically advantaged having a leg-up over the rest of us, but not the historically disenfranchised.”—One of the best comment about Affirmative Action I’ve seen (found in response to this article)
bisexuals are greedy. they often hoard gold, although some branch out into jewels and magical items. despite popular belief, most bisexuals do not hoard significant others, as they tend to complain about being kept in a pile and slept on. their diet consists mostly of deer and some herd animals, although this varies by location. occasionally they will eat a biphobe who has wandered into their lair. also, they breathe fire. bisexuals are dragons.
Though vegan bisexuals mostly eat grass and chocolate, they will occasionally also eat a biphobe who has wandered into their lair. Because biphobes are vegetables. As an added perk, the fire on their breath is in bi colors.
SRSLY don’t fuck with bisexual vegans. You learn the hard way.
White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
“Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?” He heard his voice saying, small and far away.
And his father’s voice replied to him. “That is the only time a man can be brave.”—George R. R. Martin (via kaitrokowski)
IANAD but I’d worry more about taking alcohol with anything that makes you sleepy - mixing depressants does bad things to your breathing. It’s more likely to kill you immediately than just alcohol + Tylenol.
Hm, I’ve never heard that before. To be fair, the bottle just says that it shouldn’t be taken if you drink 3+ alcoholic drinks every day as part of the liver warning. Seems like it should have another warning if that’s a big issue. :/
when i’m a rich+famous director i’m making a romeo and juliet movie where all the kids are gay girls. romeo? gay girl. juliet? gay girl. tybalt? angry protective gay girl. benvolio? small and soft gay girl. mercutio? the gayest girl to ever grace contemporary cinema
An identity is something that you claim, not something that claims you. Some people prefer not to use bi or bisexual as their labels, and that is so completely okay. Regardless of behavior, desire, whatever, no one is ever mandated to claim an identity.
But damn, if you want to claim that identity but are afraid that you aren’t bi “enough,” aren’t queer enough, that you aren’t enough in any way, I say that’s bullshit. If you identify as a girl and sometimes kiss girls, if you’re a guy who fantasizes about guys, if you’re hetero-flexible, homo-flexible, bisexually open-minded, pan-attractional, biromantic, bi-curious, not 100% gay or straight-identifying, just to name a few, I say that the bisexual label is yours to claim if you want it.
I spent years questioning myself, worrying and stressing about whether I would be invalidating other people’s experiences if I claimed the bisexual label. I spent years afraid that I would give bisexuals a bad name if I kissed other girls at parties, or if said I was bi now and then at any point in the future ever said that I was straight again. I spent years worrying that I wouldn’t be accepted into the LGBT community, that there wasn’t a space for me here.
And I know some people don’t agree with me, feel that there are “real” bisexuals, that straight people are trying to take up queer spaces, that some bi folk make the community look bad. People say these things, and I’m sorry. But if you’re questioning, unsure, afraid to take up a label, know that there is a space for you. There are people who accept you, whatever your experience of your own sexuality. It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to change. And not knowing or changing does not mean that any part of you is wrong, or a mistake, or less than. Labels may be for soup cans, but if the bisexual label helps you, take it.
