I disagree with this. Speaking as someone who writes as a hobby, there’s a reason why authors put certain things into their stories beyond the fact that they ~like~ them. They may use them as symbols or metaphors for abstract concepts like, as the OP points out, ”DEATH” or someone’s “DESIRE TO FLY AWAY FROM [THEIR] LIVES.”
Obviously, the author’s not going to say what these things actually symbolize because doing so would mean that they’re admitting failure. They’re actually expecting you, the reader, to look beyond the surface and find the meanings out for yourselves. That’s what makes good and compelling literature.
Your ignorance is showing.
Also, and you should probably clutch your pearls now, women have sexual needs, just like men. Scandalous!
Women are allowed to have healthy, safe sex with whomever they choose. It is none of your fucking business. As long as it’s consensual and safe, there is NOTHING wrong with it. Yes, women can have multiple sexual partners and enjoy the hell out of it.
Also, sex does not equal love. Women can enjoy sex without love being part of the equation. As the wise Squee-Gee said, sometimes you just gotta get laid.
So. Call me and other women sluts all you want. Guess what. We don’t give a fuck, and we’re gonna keep getting it on, so you can all go shave your backs now.
Reblogged from chickenshit:
Bus stops don’t have to be boring! In the Japanese town of Konagai, part of Isahaya City in Nagasaki Prefecture, along the road you’ll find some juicy bus stops, built in the shape of strawberries, melons, watermelons, oranges and tomatoes. There are a total of 16 stops that look like this:
Why don’t I live here…
Rape Culture 101:
After I was date-raped, I had to explain to the authorities:
-what outfit I wore
-what I drank
-what I ate
-what I said
-if I crossed my legs
-how I laughed
-if I laughed
-the makeup I wore
-what underwear I wore
-who I talked to
-what bar I went to
-who my friends are
-what type of car I drive
-what type of shoes I wore
-if I wore tights
-how many sexual partners I have had
-my sexual orientation
-the age I lost my virginity
-if I was wearing perfume
-the color of my hair
-if I said “no”
-when I said “no”
-how I said “no”
-how many times I said “no”
-why it was in my bed
-why I had no bruises
-why his number was programmed in my phone
-why we were friends on facebook
-why I said yes to a date
-why I let him pay
-why I went to class the next day
-if I showered
-why I didn’t stop him
After he raped me, he had to explain:
nothing. because they never asked him.
“Rape culture” is living a society where rape is defined by the circumstances rather than the action.
So apparently, Hollywood is planning to remake the anime movie, ‘Akira.’
But instead of casting Asian actors, Warner Bros. is only looking at white actors like ROBERT PATTINSON and MICHAEL FASSBENDER for the lead roles.
Ugh. This is like ‘The Last Airbender’ all over again.
Fuck you, Hollywood.
