u know i don’t think a lot of people are attention seeking per se i think they just want validation that they are ok as a human being
Damn. I actually never thought of this before.
And attention isn’t bad, per se. It’s really not wrong to want that.
i’m one of those annoying people who’s always like “omg i know that actor from somewhere omg i recognize them whAT WERE THEY IN” when watching tv shows/movies who then proceeds to look it up on their phone and inform everyone that said actor was an extra in an episode of some stupid 90s sitcom once

with the supernatural fandom it baffles me
people are like ‘oh dean isn’t really interested in ladies he’s just secretly gay’ or ‘dean isn’t interested in dudes because he’s shown obvious interest in women on the show’
have u not heard of bisexuality or pansexuality by now
idk i shouldn’t really be surprised by this stuff?
The first dozen times I heard this, I was horrified. But I heard it over and over again. I realized that many young men are not being taught the impact that sexual assault has on a woman. They are inundated by sexual imagery in the media, and often come to the (incorrect) conclusion that having sex is not a big deal. This, no doubt, is why the number of sexual assaults is so high.
Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
i love halloween and fall and everything but WHY MUST THERE BE SO MUCH FUCKING RACISM
there’s also a ton of sexism and homophobia and transphobia
why can’t we have nice costumes and creativity and gorgeous leaves and decorations and food WITHOUT BEING TOTAL DICKHEADS
making fun of your kid for enjoying the things they enjoy is the quickest way to make them feel so completely isolated from you that they are more comfortable talking to strangers on the internet than you about their problems
