i-effed-it-all-up:

There was a time in my life where I was misled into hating Kristen Stewart and I regret it every day.

Having too many lower-class people in universities lowers standards of education.

Last night at the pub I was talking about masculinity being an often harmful social construct (as you do at the pub if you’re a wanker like me) and then (after being taunted by my brother) a first year responded by taking a swig from my terrifyingly spicy chili sauce. 

He ended up with chest pains, numb lips, and had to ask the bartender for a glass of milk.

“Also, it’s funny. One critique about my music has been how self-absorbed I am. But I look around at everyone on the street, and I’m, like, I took all of my self-absorption and made rock’n’roll for 20 years. Most of you have taken 20 pictures of yourself today and waited for someone to tap them and tell you, ‘You’re beautiful.’

“To me, that’s real self-absorption. Everything is a spectator sport. I say, start a band, not a blog. Sell that to the kids. Make some music. Do some painting, make a film, do something of value. Don’t just waste your life commenting on all this vapour blowing by you.”

-Conor Oberst

Conor baby I love you but shut the fuck up. We don’t all get to be rock stars. We don’t all have the opportunity(/skills/ability/time) to channel our vulnerability and sadness and “self absorption” into art that is loved by enough people for it to become our livelihood. Sometimes people just need to hear that they’re beautiful and loved from the people who are in their lives, and there is nothing wrong with that. 

I appreciate your music and it has done me a world of good, but you need to get your head out of your ass and recognise what a fucking privileged position you are in to even be able to say something like that. 

I think what I hate most about all my mental illness shit is that it makes me forget how wonderful my life actually is. I mean, I still know, but I don’t feel it.

stupidstagram:

horrible aggressive misogyny and the romanticization of domestic violence and sexual torture aren’t some of my favorite things and young girls picking up that book or watching that movie being left wondering if that’s what relationships are supposed to be REALLY makes me angry. 

this man takes a young woman who is less powerful, less experienced and not entirely confident about the area of life he’s leading her into and then starts doing horrible sexual things to her, he removes her boundaries and normalizes the violence against her

50 shades of grey reinforces and perpetuates the disgusting lie that women LIKE and WANT to be hurt and that you can heal a broken man if you just love him enough and do all the things he wants you to do bc eventually he won’t want to hurt you anymore 

he goes from a sexually violent predator to prince charming and it’s gross and offensive and nobody should support it no matter how cute the guy playing him is.
