AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA VAN PICKUP COMES IN LIKE TWENTY MINUTES WHY DON’T I FEEL READY TO TRAVEL
So like there was this dude from a while ago right (third message down) who was all like WE R COMPLETE OPPOSITES PLS TEACH ME UR LIFE Well, he’s back with this passive-aggressive nonsense: Well, when you express a genuine interest and curiosity in someone and they ignore you, that’s probably a good indication you should reciprocate. Silly me, though, I have a tendency to allow...

deliciouskaek: ianthe: kawaii-afro-fluff: ianthe: This post was asking about a potential link between the afro-style wigs and big, painted lips of the modern clown and racist caricatures, so I decided to do what any good theatre history student would do - I did some research.

I'm seeing more people with "tigan" in their URL.
big-gadje-world: I’m assuming that they’re Google translating words for “Gypsy” because the URL they wanted was taken. If you are not Rromani or you’re not Rromani from certain parts Continental Europe, then don’t use that word.Don’t use ANY variation of that word. IT’S WORSE THAN “GYPSY” YOU FUCK WITS. MOST RROMANI WON’T FUCKING TOUCH THAT WORD WITH A 10 FOOT POLE, IT’S THAT OFFENSIVE. IT...

youneedacat: clatterbane: When I recently read the phrase, “I’m embarrassed to be sick,” it made my stomach clench and my breath catch. That’s exactly what I’ve been feeling: this vague sense of social unease even with close friends, a reluctance to be seen or even talk to people–especially those that knew me before I became chronically ill. At the age of 55, after a lifetime of seemingly...

Why do you dress like that?
baroquewinter: People really hate the answer, “Because I like it.” So I am done giving it. The next time I get asked this by someone who clearly sees me wearing it every day I am going to tell them that this is the outfit I fight crime in, turn dramatically, look off into the distance, narrow my eyes and say, “My people need me,” before running off.

disabledtalk: “Teachers have held up Helen Keller, the blind and deaf girl who overcame her physical handicaps, as an inspiration to generations of schoolchildren. Every fifth grader knows the scene in which Anne Sullivan spells water into young Helen’s hand at the pump. At least a dozen movies and filmstrips have been made on Keller’s life. Each yields its version of the same cliche. A...

isabelthespy replied to your post: srsly tho what do tween boys like? fandom-wise? or… the quote you reblogged was mostly good but like how is “video games” not a more obvious answer than sports? i dunno, “video games” seems about as generic as “sports” these days?
kelsium: As many of you know, our friend Rosa Sparks is having a real shit time of it lately.
