"It’s just a prank, calm down!"

When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.

is there anything on earth more anxiety inducing than being given unclear instructions and then put under time pressure

Famous Failures

I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.

WATCH IT HERE

As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this! 

I like this a lot.  My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change. 

Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good.  My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.”  The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took.  I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.

  • fetuses do not think
  • they do not “scream out” when they are aborted
  • they have no brain function and no nerve endings until long after the deadline for a legal abortion
  • they aren’t “sad” when you abort them
  • they do not “realize what is happening”

And these aren’t my beliefs, they’re scientific facts

NOPE

No worries, that’s a Bobbit Worm. They live on the ocean floor, and unless you’re able to withstand a ton of pressure, you likely wouldn’t have your toesies nipped off by one since they live deeper than people walk on the ocean floor.

Bobbit Worms are kinda cool. And they were named after Laurena Bobbit, who cut off her abusive husband’s penis and threw it out of her car window as she drove off.

Wait.

aight let me say this tho. when biphobic lesbians say things like ‘i don’t wanna be anywhere a guy has been” or the more cissexist/transphobic “i don’t wanna be anywhere a dick has been”

you’re. kind of treating a bi woman like a used object. and totally qualifying her based on her past experiences. and deciding what does or does not impact her worth and purity. 

and ur a piece of crap.

but have you considered:

  • strong females who don’t denounce femininity or being girly
  • strong females who are “like every other girl” bc why the hell not girls are rad
  • strong females who tear down the culture of girls hating on other girls
  • strong females who are proud to be feminists
  • strong females who support and acknowledge trans women
  • strong females who understand that being strong isn’t synonymous with manly or with “acting like a man”

Let me break down how Ron was never once “friendzoned” by Kim.
Ron and Kim genuinely became friends as kids when Kim and Ron protected each other from bullying. Ron didn’t become friends with her because, hey, she’s hot and popular, and her being a pretty lady meant she somehow owed him herself. No, Ron is friends with her because she is a good person who backed him up so many times.
Ron and Kim for a good span of the series were either single, crushed on other people, and dated other people. Never once did they resent one another or hold it against one another to be in relationships with other people.
When Ron was realizing he developed feelings for Kim and Kim was dating someone else? He kept quiet about it. He was sad and yet he never used it against Kim or her boyfriend. He kept it to himself for their friendship because he found that his friendship to Kim was more important than to what he thought was unrequited love.
Ron and Kim are how you write well a friendship turning to a relationship. Pay attention Legend of Korra and Danny Phantom!
"Friendzone" is a term for douchebags to use to complain how a woman decided for herself whether she wanted to be with them.
Ron is not a douchebag, he is not a Nice Guy. He is good human being. And he and Kim had a great friendship and a healthy relationship where they respected each other and didn’t treat one another as property.

Would you look at that, a gay actor playing a gay character who’s the lead of the show that’s a BBC gay spy drama.

if you live in or around the Muncy, PA area, a rapist was just released from custody and is already harassing one of my female friends and threatening to come find her. this is the only photo we have of him and he uses it for all social media accounts. but if you know any young girls in muncy, tell them to stay inside tonight and be careful leaving the house alone. seriously.
