Theodore Roosevelt, October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919
"Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake there would have been a fight."
Could well believe that. *salutes*
Anonymous said: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society

"Fitness." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 28 Dec. 2013. <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fitness>.
I don’t know what prompted you to send me the dumbest message I’ve received in at least 6 months, but nowhere in the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of “fitness” do I find the word “skinny.” Even synonyms for the word “fitness” focus 100% on health attributes as opposed to size attributes. So I’m sorry if you have this deep seeded complex that refuses to allow you to accept that, from all standpoints of medicine, science, and flat out fact, fitness is irrelevant to body size. That really sucks for you that your brain is struggling to let you come to terms with that. However, it is also 100% not my problem.
tl;dr: Blow it out your ass.
I love this way too much
lavender brown gets more hate for how she handles unrequited romantic feelings than snape does and i find that incredibly disturbing
Also Cho Chang gets more hate for crying and grieving over the death of her boyfriend, than Snape does for literally abusing and terrorizing children because he couldn’t have Lily Evans.

The Meditations - Marcus Aurelius (via corseque)
I feel like a lot of people have been taking this quote the wrong way, so I’m going to explain why this quote has been helpful to me. This is a really great explanation for what to do to stave off pointless, trivial-situation panic attacks. Most panic attacks, unless you are being chased by a bear, are pointless and unhelpful. If you think about only the situation that is exactly at hand in the present moment, and not the possible reality of the situation by building it up in your mind, or past situations that are over and done with, it will help you not panic about it.
If you are waiting for your application to be processed for a job interview, no amount of worrying-to-a-panic is going to help in any way. Thinking about a possible future where that application is rejected is pointless. Thinking about times you have been previously rejected is pointless. Thinking about only the present situation (and only if thinking about it will genuinely help), has been helpful to me.
Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Think about only the reality of the current situation (which is usually nothing more than you sitting quietly and over-thinking to a frenzy) and ask, “Why is (physically sitting here) so unbearable?” You are usually not being hurt or in danger, so there is no reason to be getting upset. It’s just a good reminder. For me, it works nearly every time.
