I’d love to see the reactions to this from a crowd. I can kind of imagine a quiet, solemn understanding from the ladies and a lot of confused questions from the guys… If my memory of art school serves me.
In 9th grade English we read Laurie Halse Anderson’s “Speak”. For those of you who haven’t read it, the author makes it abundantly clear that the teenage protagonist, Melinda, was raped, before the protagonist actually says it.
Our English teacher asked the boys in the class what happened to Mel. They came up with the most ridiculous answers. Every girl in the class just knew.
This just goes to show…
Not all men menace women, but yes all women have felt menaced by men.
Every girl understands this because every girl knows the fear implicit in this image.
i’m having a hard time believing that younger children are not perpetually drunk
Look at how slow and not panicked the pan down of the camera is. This leads me to believe that, assuming the camera person is this kid’s parent, they have 1.) Had like six kids and are accustomed to the durability of small humans or 2.) This is status quo for this child in particular. Either way it is 1000 percent sure that this has happened many, many times before.

okay but imagine james and lily dating at first and sirius just kind of sulking around the school. and then james and lily are going out on a date and lily is like "sirius, why don't you come too?" and sirius just perks up like a happy puppy and they can't stop making each other blush HELL
I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.
My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.
My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.
She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.
I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.
"In novels, stream of consciousness goes inside the hero’s head and you can read what he’s thinking. You don’t have that in television, and so I thought that if I took a perfect person and divided him into three parts."—Gene Roddenberry
