I like writing and reading. That's pretty much all you need to know.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Yeah, that’s wonderful in theory. But tell that to my grandmother, who had such a badly botched mastectomy that they had to take skin grafts from both her legs, which were both equally messed up because the techniques for curing cancer at the time were crude at best. Tell her that the charities trying to eradicate the disease that ruined HER and her daughter’s LIFE are somehow lesser because YOU take issue with the way they are presented. I am so sick at tired of people shitting on breast cancer research. The way the campaign is marketed is what makes breast cancer a talked about illness that brings in money for research. Excuse me for supporting breast cancer research through whatever ways I can. I have my pink ribbon card. I have my Save the Tatas shirt. I wear pink in October. The likelihood that I will get this disease concerns me more than if your shirt says “Save the Tatas”. Are you not going to donate just because you don’t agree with the slogans and the marketing strategies? Pardon me, but I think that’s worse than what you call the sexualization of disease. Support breast cancer research in whatever way it comes. Because if you’re the one getting the diagnosis, you’ll be thankful for the money no matter how it got there.

I’d just like to point out that 50 Shades of Grey was Twilight fanfic and Twilight was inspired by Muse so when you think about it, it’s kinda because of Muse that 50 Shades was written in the first place oh

And Muse came from England which traces its roots back to the Anglo-Saxons and Romans, so really, in the end, Julius Caesar wrote 50 Shades of Grey.

someone should totally just stab caesar

Sometimes I forget that Julie Andrews is an actress and not the ruler of a small European principality.

At the grocery store

Woman: *on cellphone* Why am I leaving you? Why am I--I'll tell you why.

Woman: Here's why. You don't respect me.

Woman: You called me a whore in front of my children.

Me: *says nothing, but has a face like O.O*

Woman: You don't respect me. And you know, there some white chick here in the store, she walking, she heard me say that and she make a face.

Woman: Because even she know you a piece of shit.

It wasn’t all bad news at Donka. I met a newborn boy, whose mother had been previously diagnosed with HIV, but the disease had not been passed on to him. He woke up as I was passing by and was full of smiles and curiosity.  [x]
