My only saving grace in life is that I may one day be able to help someone I’ve grown close to.
I don’t like people, I barely acknowledge people, but of the ones I do care about….
I really hope I can make a difference
BECAUSE IT WAS MADE OUT OF FREEDOM AND THE DREAMS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
uh excuse me wasn’t it adamantium

Aren’t wolverine’s bones made of adamantium?
No, Wolverine’s bones are made of crystalized maple syrup and universal health care.
now my favourite post on tumblr
So everyone knows the stereotype about guys in fedoras, so let me tell you about this kid right here.
One of my friends posted a video about everyday sexism, where the sexes and genders of a community were flipped so it was a matriarchal society, and he comments “once i got to the flat chested girl i lost interest.”
So obviously, a couple people as well as myself call this kid out on how he is displaying an act of everyday sexism through that comment.
Fedora kid: ”you got it wrong. The video starts with a guy walking a baby. then a girl talking down to him and him looking at the ground and grovling. Then a girl with out a shirt on running around. At that point i realized i was the wrong person to be watching this video. I don’t treat girls like this and i dont need to be shown a concept video as to what it would be like if girls were in the position to get away with this kinda stuff to realize how wrong it is. I think its just sickening to see guys get away with the stuff they do i dont need a video like this to show me that”
When asked how a shirtless woman managed to convey all this information, he responded “because she was shirtless. It was at that point i realized what the director was trying to convey.”
Obviously this sparked more responses with people trying to explain that he’s still in the wrong, so he does what we expect a kid in a fedora to do: point of “reverse sexism.”
He stated: “ I would like to point something out. Guys can no have their hair long in the work place. Places like Mc Donalds do not let men have their hair below their shoulders. Where as yes some places let this slide it is very rare that any of those guys will get promoted or even be respected. In most cases guys with long hair are seen as either stoners or un kept. That is sexist. Where as girls who wrok for Mc Donalds can wear their hair how ever they want as long as it is kept clean, and out of the food. “
I was trying to not comment on this post too much before this comment was made because I understood that there was nothing getting through to him, but this one irked me so much I had to respond. I told him
omg im soooo sorry that you can’t grow out your hair. I definitely don’t understand that problem since I only deal with things like not being allowed to do what I want with my body as a whole because my reproductive system is valued as more important than my being and rights as a human being, and other things like getting raped and being called a liar and shunned form the community i live in. But you know, my problems are minimal compared to not being able to grow out my hair.
and you know, I wouldn’t knwo what it’s like to not be able to do something in the workplace since I have a significantly smaller chance of being able to get a job no matter what my qualifications are since I am a woman, and even if I get the job, I am going to get paid around 70% of what my male counterpart does.
The response I got was “Well don’t get raped then.”
If this isn’t an example of an ignorant shit, I really don’t know what is. Ignorant in fashion, ignorant in social justice, ignorant abut his own ignorance, and a lot of other things as well (since according to his facebook, he is a proudly unemployed adult living with his parents).
Or what I usually call, a piece of utter shit.

And last week I got the news
that one of my good friends from high school
except this time
she’d gone too far
and now she was gone.
And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
and her mother
hugged me tight
and thanked me for coming to the service
but I did not
want to be there at all.
This is not
The girl down the street
would’ve turned 21 last year
and I can scarcely imagine
the wild times she would’ve
But she is buried six feet deep
after falling nearly 300
and she did not leave a note.
This is not
My freshman year of college
and my roommate was beautiful
and how I wanted to be just like her.
But she wore herself down
till she was
and if you blinked
you had to go and find her all over again.
So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
but are paying her hospital bills
watching their daughter crumble.
This is not
So y’all can take your narcissistic
of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
and shove them as far up your ass
as you possibly can.
Starvation is not beautiful.
Killing yourself is not beautiful.
is not beautiful.
This note I am writing
is not beautiful.
you are beautiful
and it’s about damn time you start believing it.
