“I’m always late, but it’s usually only by about five to 10 minutes. The assistant direct always calls me as soon as I’m, like, one second late to find out where I am, so I start making up stories. Like, ‘Oh, I had to break up this fight between two inner-city kids,’ ‘I had to rescue this dog, I’m so sorry!’ Or, ‘This old lady was walking in the street and she was blind and didn’t have a cane, so I had to help her…’”
As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.
Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.
Keep speaking up!!!!!
dear teen wolf,
your characters don’t need love interests. they need therapy.
I would love for things to get physical. I will hit you so hard that you won’t be able to wake up until you’re old enough to be Funny Lady.
I’ve always felt very beautiful and confident in my own skin. I love my ethnicity and my heritage. I love when I see it in my nose and dark hair. Whether or not I felt the industry would see me that way or accept me - that was always a question. But believing in myself was never a doubt.

↳ The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) - “So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
