This is one of the reasons The LEGO Movie hit wayyy closer to home than Frozen to me. Instead of a problem that only tackles some few, selected people, you can’t deny that at least at one point you have looked at yourself and felt worthless because everyone around you outshines you even in the things you’re good at.
That’s one of the reasons this movie made me legitimately cry in the theater, that, and due to the fact that the moral that accompanies this is much more empowering than just “letting it go”.
And let’s talk about that facial expression at the end like I didn’t know a lego could make me cry.
I feel like it was meant for college students
There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.

Can I just say that it’s so nice to see something about women abusing men that doesn’t try to say feminism is the root of all evil, and in fact realizes the sexism against women is part of why this shit happens?(via faeriviera)
Don’t be sad look at these pictures of small animals with flowers on their heads
3 attempts to rp with them have all been lost. 2 people said that they ‘couldn’t think of replies,’ aka they got bored with it. and the last guy dropped off the face of the planet so
why try asking again? it’s kinda obvious that maybe i’m not a very good roleplayer and they know it and they don’t want to waste their time with me anymore. thus, me killing off my own characters won’t make a dent in their lives, because none of my characters have any friends.
i highly doubt they’d even really notice because no one ever asks me how my characters are or what they’re doing or really anything that makes me feel like i’m involved.
i basically sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else have their roleplays and personal things and i can only wish that i had that for even just five minutes.
the phrase ‘dying alone’ rings true here for every single one of them, especially leo.
and it’s funny because before her duration, no one gave her the time of day.
funny how that’s still a thing.
let me just
mourn all of the characters that i now have to just fucking pretend never existed
yeah it’s so fucking easy to just get rid of a changeling that i held onto for dear life and was incredibly personal to me and even though she’s been reduced to a worthless, mute piece of 3rd-wheel sidequest fodder, she’s still my fucking changeling. leo meant a lot to me. i’m probably going to cry when i delete her sheet.
and it had meant a lot when kavi said that he liked nash. i’m sorry to have disappointed him.
it’s not that they don’t care
it’s just that i think they don’t understand that sometimes i wish i could be included in rp’s and things that are really interactive and can make friendships with the characters.. not just sidequests where i can get a couple of exp. points and little else.
but i don’t really tell anyone that i want to be included because it just makes me sound whiny and pushy and like i’m intruding in they personal business.
i figured that if they wanted to rp with me or have my character be involved with something they’re doing, they’d ask.
but they haven’t. so that leaves me with only two possible conclusions: that they either just really don’t want to rp with me ever, or they just sort of forget that i have a character and would like to do things.
this is Alice in Wonderland
all of these are fuckin weird I want 20 of each
