its 20 fucking 14 can we stop pretending that online activism and general awareness campaigns “dont do anything” before i got on tumblr i was a racist sexist anti-feminist piece of garbage whos greatest understanding of any social issue was discrimination against white gay men and that trans people were “men trapped in womens bodies”

Sinners will never be winners!
"And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”
Is that blog run by a 16 year old girl? Jesus, that’s the kind of shitty motivational shit I’d expect from VBS or youth group.
George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Loving yourself when all you’re told is that you’re not worth loving is just as revolutionary. Fight back.
neurosismanifesto said: If a person has relatively no logical use for the company of certain people, why do they long for it anyway? Would you say that is society conditioning people to believe they should "be together" and will be "old and alone" if they don't marry/date young?
Well, I think there different factors and I’m not an expert.
"If a person has relatively no logical use for the company of certain people, why do they long for it anyway?"
—Humans are social creatures. We want to be with other people, and we’re willing to put up with a lot for that, even when it hurts us. With family it’s even harder because we are raised to be totally loyal to our relatives. We’re told we need family, that it’s sacred. I was abused by my parents and brother but it took me until I was 22 to walk away.

—Not really. Marriage is declining and we’re doing it older. I think a lot of people who do get married and are unhappy in their marriage do it because they feel socially obligated, but it’s becoming less common. There’s still a fear of being old and alone, but we’re getting better at leaving people who make us unhappy and being more independent at older ages. That said, there’s still definitely the idea that if you aren’t in a relationship you’re somehow lacking or incomplete.
