if I wanted to say, make a new Tumblr from scratch, can I use the same email address? or should I just make a new email too? I don’t want to use my ~professional~ email, since it has my full name in it and I don’t want to risk my info being leaked/stolen if I get hacked or anything.
The thing that drives me bonkers about Laci Green’s internet fame is how ridiculous it is to set up a girl barely out of her teens, with no life experience as some kind of sexpert, and to celebrate as “radical” a body of work that is completely un-threatening to the status quo.
I mean, sure, her…
I feel this, a lot.
Laci fucked up, yeah. Some stuff she’s said is definitely not okay, and should be called out. But rich white cis men in Washington/all over the country are fucking up EVEN MORE, and damn, she’s like, 18? She doesn’t deserve threats to her life or w/e people are apparently doing.
I’m not saying intersectionality is bogus or w/e, or that pretty white girls are the ultimate oppressed victims. I just think that a lot the “calling out”/backlash against her is definitely fueled by misogyny/internalized misogyny, and that’s just goddamn depressing.
I just had this realization that I probably need to step the fuck back from celeb culture because my first thought upon seeing this was “omg that’s Lana Del Rey’s favorite game too, they should hang out”
but imagine if they did hang out though
They would have to videotape and upload it, of course
because it’s useless if it can’t be distilled into ~adorable~ gifsets
There is a difference between blaming and shaming a person. Blaming is being told you did something wrong. Shaming is being told that there’s something wrong with you, and you’re worthless, bad, inferior or inadequate. Examples of shaming…
this is kind of…dangerous—to make up a personality disorder, that is.
I mean, that whole section of the DSM is shaky to begin with, since it’s full of remmants of Freud’s thinking (which has been shown to be flawed at best). I’m not saying that personality disorders don’t exist, but they are often over-diagnosed, especially in women (see: Borderline Personality Disorder, for example).
To create a whole new personality disorder and to make it seem like it’s a legit diagnosis is really irresponsible, imo, and doesn’t actually help anyone with legitimate mental health issues. This is like saying you’re actually a cat-ostrich or something.
“Men say…’I can’t endure it when women cry’—just as people say, ‘I can’t endure this wet weather.’ As if it were nothing to do with the men at all, the crying. Just one of those things that happen.”—Hilary Mantel, from Wolf Hall (via cfbwe)
“It was an amazing experience. My last day of filming was last week and I spent the entire day being cradled in Hugh Jackman’s incredibly muscular arms as he carried me through a sewer.
It was bizarre. I was being held like a baby by Wolverine!”—Eddie Redmayne (via bluepeets)
