“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
Reblog every time
Wow nake me think
Can this get 200 Notes? :s
Whoever wrote this dialogue is a freakin’ genius
My whole life has changed.
OMG TEENAGE GIRLS ARE REALLY SUPERFICIAL HAHA
COS THEY CAN TOTALLY HELP IT
ACTING EXACTLY HOW SOCIETY WANTS THEM TO ACT
AND FUCK PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS THERE ARE WARS GOING ON AMIRITE PEOPLE WITH CLINICAL DEPRESSION NEED TO JUST GET OVER IT
Teenaged girls are so stupid with their hopes and dreams unlike everyone else, because the rest of humanity has all been to war. Every single person.
I am seriously pissed off that this post used pictures of real people’s heartbreak and pain in order to insult teenage girls.
I scrolled this whole post thinking “I swear to god if there isn’t rage at the bottom of this fucking bullshit I’m going to delete my blog and burn tumblr to the ground.”
lol and they’re all juxtaposed to men, of course
can I have an explanation for the millions of teenage girls raped and killed by soldiers every goddamn year, or
What are those silly teenage girls even thinking? I mean honestly, having emotions and being concerned about their futures? Nothing like all those brave and stalwart teenage boys (who undoubtedly made this post and definitely do not spend all their time chugging red bull and trying to grow a mustache) for they will all magically turn into good and righteous soldiers any day now
I hate people who hate teenage girls
The 200,000 women serving in the US Military want to thank you for your effing support, Asshat.
You should date a girl who reads.
Date a girl who reads.
Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads.
You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she has found the book she wants. You see that weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a secondhand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow and worn.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas, for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry and in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by God, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who read understand that all things must come to end, but that you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes."

This is Jonathan Ferrell. He was in a car accident at 2:30 in the morning on Saturday. It was pretty bad, he was forced to climb out of the back window of his car to get out. He ran to the nearest home and knocked on the door. The woman who owned the home called the police. The police arrived and saw Jonathan nearby. Jonathan ran to them, unarmed. He was probably so happy to see someone that could help him. The police shot and killed him after they tazed him.
Jonathan was 24-years-old and a football player at Florida A&M University. He had just gotten engaged. His friends described him as a loving, peaceful man with a bright future.
The cop who shot him has now had voluntary manslaughter. We have to make sure that the cop, Randall Kerrick, does not get away with this. In most cases like this, the cop gets no jail time and no sentence, and in many cases, they’re let back onto the force afterwards.
Jonathan was a good man with a clean record. He wasn’t known as being aggressive or violent. This should not have happened.
See this is that shit. This Could be me and then what would people say.no one would give a fuck.
