out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory
like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that every kid on the team gets a trophy and is told they did a good job; they can also see that not every kid on the team deserves a trophy, and not everyone did do a good job
the logical conclusion to draw from this is not “i’m great and i deserve praise”— it’s “no matter how mediocre i am, people will still praise me to make me feel better, so i can’t trust any compliments or accolades i receive”
this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.
where did this whole “ugh millennials think their so-so work is super great” thing even come from it is a goddamn mystery
Holy shit! I have this EXACT problem. They started this assinine tradition of “everyone gets a trophy” (and then accusing us of being spoiled for it) with Gen X, and now I literally hear all compliments as “You suck, but I don’t think you’re strong enough to hear the truth.”
AND THEN WE SHAME TEENAGE GIRLS FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO TAKE COMPLIMENTS
what if in a couple episodes the krew is in a bind and the only solution somehow is airbending and korra isn’t there and it’s just bo and mako and asami and somehow asami manages some totally brilliant non-bender solution and saves the day
and then later back at air temple they’re like sitting around drinking tea and asami sips hers and is like OW SHIT and burns her tongue so she like casually creates a tiny stream of air and cools off her tea
and everyone is like !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"ASAMI WTF YOU CAN AIRBEND"
"yeah ive had it since everyone got it"
"i never needed it before and i don’t need it now
…but it does come in handy to cool off hot tea”
repeat after me friends:
- vaginas are self-cleaning
- there is no such thing as a dirty vagina
- unless you have an infection
- in which case your vagina still isn’t dirty but you should really go see a doctor
- but yeah
- vaginas aren’t “clean” or “dirty” they’re self-cleaning acidic muscular tracts
- so fuck off
and dicks are not
dicks get nasty clean that shit
Tbh Some days the only reason I even get out of bed is because it might be the day My Chemical Romance announces their reunion tour
So @TheCapitolPN tweeted this
which was promptly deleted. (G-Bb-A-D are the notes to Rue’s whistle.)
But if you had clicked inspect element before it was deleted
"You silence our voices, but we are still heard."
HOW COOL IS THIS MARKETING?!?! Like the rebels are hacking into the capitol’s twitter!!!!
my aunt made a post on facebook asking parents what age is appropriate for a girl to wear a bikini (her daughter is 11 and her dad just bought her one) and the responses literally reek of rape culture im so mad
i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake
i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.
