on boys and sexual frustration and mediocrity
there’s that part in one of the georgia nicolson books where she says she’s going to have to hire two men to walk around with her carrying her boobs and honestly that idea has stuck with me more than anything it may be one of the most powerful images in modern literature
If you don’t know what you are talking about, shut your mouth and listen instead. Research. Get informed. Consider both/all sides. Show some (a lot!) of humility.
Please, for the LOVE OF GOD, stop vomiting up recycled language and ideas from biased sources without explaining yourself/the idea/your reasoning, citing the source, or giving context. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but you disrespect the people directly affected by these issues when you make ostentatious statements that are misinformed, insensitive, or not adequately researched.
I am so exhausted and disappointed and ashamed by the amount of self-righteousness, indifference, and hubris I see in my peers. Please, stop for a second. Think about your place in the conversation. Consider what you may or may not know. Speak thoughtfully and carefully. Do not treat political issues with flippancy; whatever you are talking about affects real people in real ways.
