Okay, I’m gonna try to make this quick because I need to get to work. But I feel like I also need to talk about this somewhere.

So. I have this friend who’s about to turn 13. She’s my ex’s kid; I don’t make a habit of going around friending 13 year olds. (Not that there’s anything wrong with…

I know you weren’t necessarily looking for advice, but I this brought back a lot of personal memories for me and I felt like I needed to respond. TW for discussion of depression, mental illness, suicide, ableism, adultism, and possibly child abuse below the cut.

I apologize if I misunderstood your intentions by reading this from such an emotional and personal perspective. I think the conclusion you came to at the end sounds like a good way to approach the situation. It might not seem like much, but I do think that even just letting her know that you are there for her and that you respect her privacy can be a lot more helpful than it might feel like. Even if she doesn’t want to talk to you about it now, or even if she never does, just knowing that you are there should she ever need to can mean a lot. And being shown respect in a world that doesn’t respect teens, or women, or people dealing with depression can be really helpful in showing her that she is worthy of respect. These things might not seem like a lot because they’re not an immediate fix or solution to her problems, but it is helpful and it is something you can do, it’s not useless.

Thank you for taking the time to read and respond positively even if your first reaction was negative and I misinterpreted some of what you wrote. It’s nice to run into people who are actually willing to try and have productive discussions about things that can be difficult or emotional. It’s a shame that it tends to be so hard because those are some of the most important discussions to have.

I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.

This is one reason I fucking love hisrtory. Because I can explain some feminism and some basic processes of sexism by talking about HAIR.

Of course it makes sense that bisexuals would want to make up their own oppression, we’re all lying attention seekers, right?

We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

don’t trust anyone who says something biphobic then when you call them out on it they say “i don’t mean real bisexuals. just the fake bicurious ones”.

Pro Tip: Actually there is no such thing as "fake" bisexuals. There are instead a lot of questioning people, worried people, closeted people, scared people, confused people, all sorts of people … and these are all perfectly normal things to be. Remember, there is no wrong way to be bisexual.

Forget me not

In Slovene, these are called ‘spominčice’, which would loosely translate into ‘little memories’. The different perception of the world through different languages is fascinating to me. 

And yet both refer to memory. Weird how they converge on that. What about tiny blue flowers says “something to do with remembering”?

In Finnish they are called “lemmikki” which means “beloved” or “darling”.
