to people thinking chris brown hitting rhianna jokes are funny. it’s not fucking funny. it will never be funny. you’re not edgy or clever, you’re just an asshole who thinks hitting women is funny.
so i’ve already unfollowed and blocked friends who have reposted these various memes, but if you’re even questioning if this is about you because of something you’ve posted, you’re a part of the problem.
when i was in high school i was hit once by a boy that i thought that i was in love with. i had a great support network as a young person and knew that this was not OK, not all women have this sort of support through their family and friends and it pisses me off when i hear stupid jokes that perpetuate this sort of culture that says that it’s ok for a man to hit a woman when she’s “asking for it” by being a nag, a bitch, a slut, etc. No, she’s not being a nag, a bitch or a slut, she’s just a human being that deserves your respect.
Roles of the Northern Goddess While much work has been done on goddesses of the ancient world and the male gods of pre-Christian Scandinavia, the northern goddesses have been largely neglected. Roles of the Northern Goddess presents a highly readable study of the worship of these goddesses by…
Don’t justify other people’s bullshit. You’re happy, he’s happy, and they’re probably a miserable person who’s bound to own many cats. Life is pain. Rock on with mufassa hair, and post more interesting things about history.
You’re right. I just got to thinking about it while I was waiting for something earlier and it just made me think. There are a lot of people I don’t like, and with good reason, but to think that I’d actively go out of my way to mess with someone is absurd. I’m too busy doing cool things to bother with ruining anyone’s life.
An addition to that anon question I replied to earlier...
I put “ruined” in quotes for a reason in that post about being not sorry for “ruining” someones life. It’s hard to ruin someone’s life when at the time that the “ruining” happened you don’t even know they exist. It’s also hard to “ruin” someone’s life when their life revolves around a relationship that never existed in the first place. So, there you have it. I ruined someone’s life by persuing my own happiness, and I wasn’t malicious about it, or ignorant. I didn’t chase a guy with a significant other. I didn’t steal anyone’s boyfriend. I didn’t even swoop on a guy that was casually dating someone. The end.

I mean I’m known to hold grudges, hell the person I’m most frustrated with now has been on and off my radar for four years, but to think that I go out of my way and expend energy to “ruin others’ lives” or to make others feel bad is absurd.
If people leave me & mine alone, then that is reciprocated.
“I do not know much about writing rap lyrics, but I’m guessing that most rappers do not meet with physicists and cosmologists from MIT and Cornell before sitting down to write. But that’s exactly what Wu-Tang Clan founding member GZA did during the creation of his new album, Dark Matter — a project the rapper hopes will turn his audience on to science.”—
i’m just going to start posting the choicest bits of livejournal drivel from this moron with the hopes that she comes across them and feels like a piece of shit. sorry i’m not sorry about “ruining” your chances with him. boohoo.
