TINY PRECIOUS LITTLE AQUA PIGS
Going for a swim and being adorable
sorry i’m late, professor. im disenchanted with the human experience and waking up every morning thrusts me into an instant existential crisis
the twenty one pilots fandom is literally the only fandom i have ever seen that is like “OH YOU LIKE TWENTY ONE PILOTS NOW????? WELL I WAS HERE BEFORE YOU SO hey let me show you all these old tweets that they’ve made that are actually so ridiculous i have them all complied and here have a masterpost to all the interviews they’ve ever done. is there anything else you want to know? birthdays? snapchat? anything at all?? I’m here for you, friend. stay street.”
I think it’s great that young people are feeling more confident about exploring their sexuality, trying out labels to see what fits, and ultimately doing what works best for them and makes them happy.
I think that it takes a lot of courage, maturity, and humility for a person to admit that they were mistaken about their identity, and that a different label suits them better. And I have extra respect for teenagers who can do this. When I was a teenager, I was far too timid and unsure of myself to identify as anything.
I think that there’s a ton of ageism, misogyny, lesbophobia and sapphobia underlying the stereotype of teenage girls’ having questionable or fake sexual identities. Teenage girls get treated horribly by mainstream culture, and are mocked and insulted no matter what they like or do. I find that absolutely despicable. Anon, would you have asked me the same question about teenage boys? I doubt it.
I think that it is wrong and hurtful to invalidate or talk shit about someone else’s sexuality, and just because the target is young or female does not suddenly make it acceptable.
If someone tells me they’re lesbian, bisexual or any other orientation, I believe them. Period. I don’t care how many things they identified as before. It is an honor that they decided to share such personal information with me, and the least I can do is take it seriously.
I scrolled down for an explanation and there was none.
More unattainable standards for today’s girls
I think it’s pretty self-explanatory
Another one from goodreads. :-) This is a monthly post now I guess.
Why does everyone say “house-wife” or “house-husband” when “House-spouse” is not only gender neutral, but also RHYMES?
the prof asks the important questions.
Wait, spouse rhymes with house? I always pronounced it ‘spooze’ in my head /o\ WHY IS YOUR LANGUAGE SO WEIRD!!!
Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.
girls are amazing i just watched my friend change 8 times before picking an outfit you girls are so dedicated to looking good i can’t believe there are men out there sitting in their cum stained sweatpants trying to tell you what you’re allowed to wear
Agent Coulson is down
