i hope a straight boy sees this and gets pissed off

how fucking tiresome. It’s not your pits that are gross, it’s your “edgy” attitude about them. And also your face, your gross disgusting face. Please do the internet a favour and don’t post any more selfies or write any more text posts. In act, just smash your router, go for a walk outside, tell your parents you love them, play with a dog, drink a glass of water. Do anything but be on the internet and contribute to the cultural sewage that is tumblr.

success!!


Hahaha

"Years ago, we put all our resources into searching for a man. We suspected that he might have a child on a certain island. We relied on this possibility and Cipher Pol’s vague information. Children who had just been born…children who were about to be born. We thoroughly investigated all the mothers but we couldn’t find him. But I suppose that was to be expected. Your mother risked her life to deliver you safely. She done a special trick which she pulled through sheer willpower. She deceived our eyes. No. The eyes of the whole world! In South Blue, there is an island called Baterilla. Your mother’s name is Portgas D. Rouge! She managed to defy common sense with sheer willpower to protect her child. She carried her child in her womb for 20 whole months. She used all of her strength and as soon as she gave birth to you, she died."

Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.


Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid?  Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?

1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.”  It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.  

The nail. It is hit on the head.

why do straight ppl think they can whine about gay ppl “throwing their sexuality in our faces” when almost every waking second of every minute of every day of my life is filled with heterosexual romance media and heteronormativity. like u think 2 girls holding hands in public is rubbing their sexuality in ur face you have no fucking idea what queer people go through on a daily basis shut the fuck up
