that detox makes Alastair look like Mother Teresa.
What do you mean by this?
I’m going to respond under a cut, because at least one of my followers is likely to be triggered. It’s kind of gross so you might want to reconsider reading more if you’re eating or something.
"You really don’t believe me? Try using your super power. Yep, I know about that. Use it. See that I’m telling the truth."
I don’t want to be a feminist anymore. Like a five-year-old, I want to close my eyes, stick my fingers in my ears, stomp my feet on the floor and scream “No! No, you cannot make me, I won’t, leave me alone!” I am, simply put, too tired. So very, very tired.
I am tired of fighting with my friends. I am tired of arguing that someone groping and slapping my butt isn’t “what I have to expect”, just because I’m at a bar, and the one attacking my butt has a drink in the other hand. I am tired of hearing “boys will be boys” and “when you’re dressed like that …” and “that’s just what guys do”. I am tired of trying to drown those sentiments in loud, repetitive no’s, screamed over and over again, till my throat is sore and my voice weak – just to hear them repeated, as soon as exhaustion threatens to silence me.
I am tired of being afraid. I am tired of seeing someone writing something offensive, sexist, racist, ageist, ableist, somewhere online. I am tired of seeing those writings getting likes and lol’s, and SO TRUE’s. I am tired of being consumed by confusion and anger, typing, typing, typing and typing a seemingly endless response, including research, links and statistics, and then hesitate clicking “submit”. I am tired of knowing that I hesitate because I am afraid of the flood of responses that will come. I am tired of knowing that I will be bombarded with lighten up’s, stop whining’s and get a sense of humor’s for so long, that I will start to wonder if I am indeed wound up too tight, a nagger and humorless. I am tired of the fact that I’m afraid of being called a cunt, even though I don’t find genitalia insulting or demeaning.❞
I was going to caption this “Now, look at the gifs again and pretend that one of them is a woman”, but after a second thought I figured someone would be offended or something similar so I decided against it. I don’t really need to prove anything since it’s kind of obvious already, just take a look for yourself and I dare you to convince me that these two boys aren’t madly in love with each other. It’s just that I don’t think either of them realizes that what they feel is love, but hopefully they’ll figure it out eventually.
The only point I’m trying to make, is that this is not the way someone behaves with or looks at their brother (in bond or in blood).
"I have Henry, a job, a guy I love."
"Perhaps there’s a man that you love in the life that you’ve lost."
I’m trying to prove a point to my mum and teachers
Literally had one three days ago
For the past two days I’ve actually been crying over school.
Because I’ve studied Psychology.
Freud’s theories are unscientific, they’re untestable, they’re prone to circular reasoning, and are just… well, nonsense. He got the idea for his theory of the unconscious because he didn’t believe a patient when she told him her father had molested her, his reasoning was ‘a man would never do that, that must be repressed sexual fantasies.’ The vast majority of his so called clinical assessments are useless, because again - they’re based on nonsense. Thanks to him the general public to have this very misinformed view of psychology and as a result he’s set the science back because people assume that all of it is as wishy-washy and unfounded as the theories of a cocaine addict with a mother fixation.
Agree 100% and I think his theories, such as they are, actually continue to set back physiological progress to this day.
I may have once rolled my eyes when a professor mentioned we were going to study Freud and then giggled because I thought she was joking when she said she was a firm believer in Freudian analysis.
She didn’t really like me….
I took a psychology class at a community college in rural NC taught by a badass feminist army veteran. We got to the chapter on Freud and she literally said: “We’re not going to study this because it’s bullshit.” We spent exactly one class discussing why it was bullshit, then moved on to study the scientific method, Milgram and Harlow, and the development of ethical standards in the field of psychology. That is what Freud is to people who actually understand his contribution to the field: a gateway into discussing the way ideas become scientific theories and the ethics surrounding the development of said theories.
Because it’s not science if you literally say, “I don’t trust this woman because lol hysterical vagina syndrome, here’s the only misogynistic explanation for what’s going on, she is totes envious of the penis, haha, fact.”
I’m so glad I’m not the only person who recognizes this
For a fandom and website that stresses the importance of being who you are, wanting to break free and live the life you truly want, not apologising for who you are, understanding and demanding respect for your own body and personal space, you sure do hate Sam Winchester a lot.
Ok, guys, it really is our time to act! Unfortunately, “Salute” did not have staying power in the iTunes or Billboard charts and has been dropping quickly. The single “Move” isn’t even on the Top 50 Airplay Chart anymore. While they’re definitely gaining some new fans during the Demi Lovato tour, it’s still not enough and if “Move” flops then we can say goodbye to them ever touring the US or releasing more music here (which means world domination won’t happen). It all lies down to the power of the fans. So here’s what we should be doing right now:
- REQUEST “MOVE” ON YOUR RADIO STATIONS! List of places you can TWEET here. List of places to CALL or TEXT here.
- VOTE FOR THEM TO WIN A NICKELODEON KCA for “UK Favorite Band” Come on, they’re the only ladies in this category. GIRL POWER!
- WATCH “WINGS” ON YOUTUBE so it reaches 100millions views and it becomes Vevo Certified, making it the first girl group to have 100millions views on an official music video released by Vevo.
- You should also vote for them as one of "Glamour’s Women of the Year 2014" in the “Band” category
