So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.
Wow, 500 notes
Girls protecting girls.
GIRLS PROTECTING GIRLS
Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police and vigilantes in recent years.

*wipes tear from my eye* it’s the most beautiful thing i’ve ever seen
Meanwhile, in Canada…
if you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out.
if you put a frog in warm water and gradually turn up the heat until the water is boiling, the frog will remain there until it dies.
and that is an abusive relationship.
could never put it into words, but this def did.
I just realized that I grew up during a time where the crazy frog was a thing. Like that was an actual thing that happened, that blue fucking piece of shit frog took the world by storm and it even had a tiny dick and all it did was sing annoying songs while racing around sci-fi towns in a distant future on an invisible motorbike. I can’t believe this. How did that happen. Who LET that happen.
it’s weird though because when taylors parents were making that video they never imagined the world would someday want to watch it… scott swift made a dumb dad joke thinking taylor would watch the videos someday and maybe laugh. they were just regular parents taking their regular baby home from the hospital, excited and probably scared. they had NO clue what was coming.
I’M CRYING WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS
And there is Out of the Woods, wonderfully constructed by Swift and guitarist Jack Antonoff, where joyous memories take on the patina of nostalgic photos, before the heartbeat-like chorus, a question repeated over and over, the obsessiveness and insecurity of love in its earliest days. Are we out of the woods yet? Are we in the clear? Please, please, please let me get what I want.
At the end, there is a sense of self-awareness. The drama was somehow part of the appeal, it is consciously overblown. It sounds as if Swift is just nostalgic for that transitory phase – a stage that is fleeting, but that has to be fleeting, otherwise it would drive all involved mad. A stage that no couple forgets. It is where really great pop music lives; the very edge of happiness."Taylor Swift’s Out Of The Woods and other in-between anthems (via croptopswift)
