These are all tropes in the fandom that are usually written extremely badly. If you’re looking at this and thinking ‘Oh no, I write like this/ I have done this!’ then don’t worry! It doesn’t mean you’re a bad writer, it just means that there’s room for improvement!
There tropes don’t equal…
The choice is yours.
This is a shit ton of bullshit and shaming. People are born with health problems and perfectly healthy people develop health problems. There isn’t always a choice.
are your eyes red, itchy, and inflamed? don’t reach for those eyedrops, just grab a fucking red pepper and shove that into your eyes instead, just fucking jam all the vegetables you can into your eyes you fucking animal just do it
Inject V8 directly into your veins you miserable bag of trash. Get a giant syringe full of vegetable juice and stab right through your fucking arm in a wild attempt to cure your heart condition.
Wow, and here I could have saved all the time and discomfort of fucking brain surgery by eating a leek or something. WHO KNEW?!
Reblogging for the commentary.
My entire profession is worthless if the population found out about GREEN VEGETABLES.
So an apple a day really does repel doctors,
never not reblog Scarlett calling idiots out on their bullshit
and the shitty part is that once scarlett called them out on their fucking bullshit, she automatically became coined a bitch. a bitch. for being brave enough to publicly tell them what was so annoying about a still continuing problem for women in media
"You work hard making independent films for fourteen years and you get voted best breasts.” - scarlett johansson
god i feel horrible for her. i feel horrible for every single woman in this world. and it was to the point where she decided to get breast reduction surgery for her to be taken more seriously as an actress. what the hell is wrong with everybody
and i never, ever understood the hate towards anne hathaway. new york times magazine stated “Anne Hathaway practically demands that we love her.” fucking wrong. anne never gave a shit about looking stuck up when she was out there on stage, preaching for gay rights and how wrong it is for men to constantly sexualize and put down women in the media in every single interview where a man asked the bullshit question “what diet plan did you use for your role in les mis, i bet every single girl wants to know”. she knew a backlash would come from for being so strong and forceful with her retortive statements, but they saved the people that mattered.
and another point. kristen stewart. why in the hell do people hate kristen stewart as a person. women today are expected to act pretty. nice. be respectful 24/7, never argue back, smile pretty, be a lady. don’t make rash, argumentative statements, because if you do, you are not a lady. this is a message our society tries to suffocate women with. kristen stewart will not smile for you, or act like a fuckin lady for you, because that is not her character
yet people hate her because she decides to be herself. “god kristen, you gotta smile some more, talk more ladylike”
what in the fuck for? absolutely nobody knows kristen stewart’s personality. she’s a private person. but just because she refuses to lie through her teeth to seem like a respectable, golden lady of hollywood, she’s considered a bitch. “do this or that because if you don’t you aint a lady” god fuckin damn all of you
all the wrong actresses are getting the hate. you know what really pisses me off are the actresses that just drift on by, answering all an interviewer’s fuckin condescending questions because they’re too afraid to say anything else. just walk nice, smile and say all of those stupid, feminine things you can say in order to get the most fans. at least that’s what their publicists are making them do
its really early in the morning and i cant think straight so if my rant seems messy im sorry
I can’t not reblog Scarlett Johanson.
"I didn’t ask you what kind?"
I feel like she needs to have a box of cookies on her at all times, so she can hand them out at times like this.
^ Please. On that note, and I apologize for the bad comparison, but it’s like asking what someone’s favorite sex position is and then trying to cover it up by saying that it’s not like you asked who your sex partner was.
That stuff is personal, and not everyone needs to know and no one has a right to invade that privacy.
you know I think it’s funny that a lot of characters who are portrayed as “asexual” are usually given an air of being “above everyone else” and “too good for that sort of thing” when in reality when you’re asexual they’re is no feeling of being better than anyone else it’s actually the opposite you feel flawed
im not sure how to feel right now
feel angry. it’s a little boy, not a fedora clad pony-fetishizing teen douchebag. he should get to wear his my little pony backpack.
This isn’t even about bronies or anything like that, this is a school telling a child that it’s HIS fault he’s being bullied. The design of his backpack should not even be a topic of discussion.
But it kinda is his fault. Newsflash: kids are assholes and will make fun of everyone for anything. Wearing a gigantic target on your back like that just tells everyone “hey look at me I like my little pony make fun of me.”
Except it’s fucking not, you douchebag. It’s never the kid’s fault. Instead of making kids conform as much as possible, HOW ABOUT WE TEACH OUR ASSHOLE KIDS NOT TO FUCKING BULLY.
i wrote a paper as a senior in high school about this and when tracking the unhealthy relationship symptoms i found this out too. fucking a.
THIS is a legitimate reason to think Twilight is problematic. Not “oooh, but it’s girly literature cause the vampires sparkle and all the teen girls are into Edward”. As funny as some of the sparkly vampires jokes are - and they really sometimes are - Twilight’s very unique take on vampires is the least of the series’ problems, yet this criticism gets heard a lot more than the criticism of people who have noticed that something isn’t quite right in the relationship between Edward and Bella.
I brought this up every chance I had when I was working with the youth theatre girls this summer. There was one in particular who was way gaga over Edward and how she wanted a boyfriend just like him, so I told her “Oh, you’d be ok with a guy who followed you everywhere, invaded your privacy, ignored your feelings, sabotaged your friendships, and isolated you from everyone you’ve ever loved? And nearly killed you on several occasions?”
And I literally watched the switch flip in her head.
Just this week someone told me in regards to Twilight, “LOL, it’s just FICTION. Stop taking it so seriously. Fiction is just fiction and doesn’t mean anything.”
And my face was basically:
Yeah, it DOES mean something. Stories matter, especially when they’re being marketed to young girls and ESPECIALLY when they portray unhealthy relationships as romantic and ideal. THEY FUCKING MATTER.
What if it’s a phase?
What if it is? That doesn’t stop you being asexual right now.
It may be tempting to hold back on accepting your asexuality in the hope that eventually you’ll ‘bloom’ into a sexual person. I’m not saying that might not eventually happen, but consider this: do you want to spend your life thinking of yourself as an undeveloped person, living for the dreamed of day when you’ll become whole? Might you feel more comfortable accepting who you are now as a whole complete valid person? Maybe one day you will “bloom”, and if and when you do, you won’t have lost anything by being comfortable in the mean time.
There’s no shame in identifying as one thing and then later identifying as another. Your identity isn’t meant to limit you. If you’ve moved on or changed, then by all means describe yourself differently. If you fear you might be different in the future, that doesn’t change which label is most useful to you in the present. There’s nothing wrong with change.
I feel this is something people need to read. This can apply to any sexuality, not just asexuality.
The petition to legally recognize non-binary genders expired because it did not reach 100,000 signatures in time.
HERE IS A NEW PETITION. It expires April 20th. DO NOT LET THIS ONE FAIL AS WELL.
It’s important to tell girls that they do not need to be sexual in order to be loved and respected. And it’s equally important to tell girls that as human beings they have bodily autonomy and can do whatever they see fit to do with their own person.
If you give one of these messages and not the other then you’re giving the incomplete truth.
