We Are All In The Gutter
but some of us are looking at the stars
I search for light, all the while craving the darkness. My eyes seek the flash of illumination, whereas my lids weight to close the curtains on tired consciousness. My flame can burn hot and fierce, but it flickers. Expect anything, but not everything.

  • [Talking about her age] I thought that it would be a thing when they first heard about me, and then it would stop being a thing, but no, I’ve been in some situations where people have treated me like a fascinating toy. You know, it’s just like an interesting kind of fun thing to have a play with. It’s very weird for me. I feel like a tiny baby. But it’s all relative: when you’re my age in particular, every year feels like a massive change. The difference between 15 and 17 is colossal for everyone.

    it’s so crazy to me that there are tall girls out there that don’t want to wear heels because they’d be taller than boys and apparently that’s not the way to be but you should wear the highest shoes ever and intimidate every small man because you rule the world.

    I have no such qualms. Of course people then inevitably complain about how tall I am. And I’m just like…

This map should be included in every history book.

Oh wow! I’ve been wanting this for ages!

This needs to be in every history book along with a map showing where those nations have been pushed to now.

  • Excellent point. The societal construct of gender roles reinforcing concepts of strength and independence makes men less likely to seek help for suicidal thoughts and depression. Highest rates are seen among the young, single, unemployed, uneducated, and there’s another peak in the 40s if my memory is correct.

    I will amend that this 3:1 statistic is for committed suicides, i.e. completed suicides. Women have higher rates of attempted suicide. Part of this is the preference in methods: men go for more violent means of hanging, firearms, whereas women generally opt for overdose, that can be caught and treated before it is fatal. The other, more important part, in my humble opinion, is that women will eventually seek help (most anyway) and do not get to completion, if you will. It is this behavioral trait, showing vulnerability and getting help when you need it, that we as a society should encourage for both sexes by breaking gender normative ideals.

  • Do you think that your 16 year old daughter hasn’t masturbated already? Like, do you really think there’s anything in that scene that this chick hasn’t already tried when the lights go out at night, or in the bathroom, or in the tub, or with the shower head or something like that? I’m telling you, man, I’m not teaching this broad anything new. If I were to create a rating system, I wouldn’t even put murder right at the top of the chief offenses. I would put rape right at the top, and assault against women. Because it’s so insanely overused and insulting how much it’s overused in movies as a plot device, a woman in peril. That, to me, is offensive, yet that shit skates.

    In French, you don’t really say “I miss you.” You say “tu me manques,” which is closer to “you are missing from me.” I love that. “You are missing from me.” You are a part of me, you are essential to my being. You are like a limb, or an organ, or blood. I cannot function without you.
