Social work graduate student. Tired of the world's shit.

 

Entitled

Me: This older generation pisses me off so much

Therapist: Why?

Me: Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.

Therapist: And?

Me: And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers

Therapist: Touche

Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence.

i’m fucking tired of gay dudes thinking they can get a fucking pass at unlearning being assholes to women because they’re gay.

your gayness does not exempt you from consent.

your gayness does not mean you can touch me without my consent.

your gayness does not mean you have access to women’s…

Belle (2013) dir. Amma Asante

I don’t think you guys know just how powerful this scene was. Literally when I was in the audience I could just see a lot of the women of color affected by this scene. A lot of us have gone through this self denial and self hate through the effects of white beauty standards and beliefs forced down our throats.This was the first time I had ever seen something that I had personally felt before portrayed on the screen and it put tears in my eyes.  If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. It’s out on dvd/bluray/streaming

This movie was way too close to home!
