You know that feeling when you get sucked into an internet vortex of one link leading into another leading into the comment section populated by misinformed probably-thirteen-year-olds, only to snap out of it two hours later despairing of humanity and also hungry?

"Depression is stupid and not a thing that makes me a better writer. One time I went a whole year without writing and I stayed in bed and drank. Fuck your Bukowskisms. I want sunlight and love and running down some street I’ve never been on where it’s warm and cool at the same time and I’m smiling. I want nothing to ever be bad again- and I don’t mean that I want a life free of conflict, I mean that I want a life free of meaningless conflict. Not being able to will oneself to take a shower or leave the house is meaningless. There is nothing to be gained, no lesson to be learned from that kind of life. My heart is stale, my prose is stale. Give me fire if you want to hurt me. Give me something I can taste. There’s nothing romantic or mysterious about where I am. There’s nothing here worth holding onto."

People who say “you should be grateful that you don’t have (insert another illness here)” to people who have any sort of chronic illness need to stop.

Stop making people feel bad. Stop comparing illnesses. Stop making people feel guilty. Just stop.

I love this quote. I love this movie.

This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.

Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.

obfuscatingdeity:

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.

for those who think prostitution is ~*empowering*~ for women

  • women make up 70% of the population of prostitution before we get all dismissive of women’s rights
  • 92% OF FEMALE PROSTITUTES SAY THEY WANT TO LEAVE PROSTITUTION BUT CAN’T DUE TO LACK OF MONEY/FOOD ETC!!!!! STOP GLORIFYING POVERTY AND ABUSE!
  • THE AVERAGE AGE FEMALE PROSTITUTES IN THE US BEGIN SEX WORK IS 14. FOUR-FUCKING-TEEN!
  • $1 is the median price for a prostitute in south america
  • 40% of prostitutes were victims of child ‘prostitution’. 
  • 26% of prostitutes in NY are homeless (so empowering, much liberation)
  • prostitution is the most dangerous job in the US, with 204 out of every 100k prostitutes being murdered
  • one of the top 3 reasons for hiring a prostitute was to experience a racial, discriminatory sex act or fetish
  • a prostitute is beaten 12 times per year in the US on average. that does not reflect unattainable statistics of prostitutes in poverty-stricken continents and countries, where the beatings would inevitably be more frequent. 58% frequently report assaults. 
  • in the US, a prostitute has unprotected sex 300 times a year. 50% of the world’s prostitutes have HIV. that doesn’t include other STIs and STDs. 6-8% of US’s STIs are a result of prostitution. 20% of female prostitutes have STDs. 
  • between 75-95% of prostitutes were abused as children.
  • $58 billion dollars is made FROM these women, not given TO these women. they’re objectified into imagery of machinery, sexually used and abuse into feeding the rich while the prostitutes get poorer. 
  • 1 in 5 korean men purchase sex 4 times a month

And in that moment, everybody in the theater let out a huge sigh of relief as they realized what had just happened; for the first time in forever there was no forced romance between the protagonists in an action movie. 
The heavens finally answered the prayers of the people. 

It was beautiful
