The world is watching, White America.
FIGHT TERRORISM, STOP COPS.
I’ve been so friggin busy all day shooting my short film that I didn’t even get a chance to post this video on Tumblr yet. It’s pretty much everywhere else at this point, but what the hey. I’ll post it here, too, in case some of you tumblrers haven’t seen it yet.
Now my face is wet.
I somehow wouldn’t expect anything less epic from Craig…and yet still…I am astounded…and SO HAPPY.
CRAIG!!! You guys!!! Awww <3
In which John Green teaches you about World War I and how it got started. Crash Course doesn’t usually talk much about dates, but the way that things unfolded in July and August of 1914 are kind of important to understanding the Great War. You’ll learn about Franz Ferdinand, Gavrilo Pincep, the Black Hand, and why the Serbian nationalists wanted to kill the poor Archduke. You’ll also learn who mobilized first and who exactly started the war. Sort of. Actually there’s no good answer to who started the war, but we give it a shot anyway.
just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
yo but this says so much about rape when a woman would literally rather be around a murderer than a rapist
hitmen only hit who they’re paid to hit, rapists will rape anyone they want to. I would much rather be around a hitman than a rapist.
shoutout to all the girls + women who have thick, dark, and abundant body hair and have to spend time and energy shaving every single day if they don’t want to be harassed by loved ones + strangers alike
shoutout to all the girls + women who decided its not worth their time, even if they only skip sometimes, and endure criticism, harassment, and stigma as the price for their own freedom of time + comfort

End Stigma, cutting is fucking real and isn’t done for attention. I did it for 13 years and always covered my cuts up (6 1/2 years no self harm and counting!!), not everything is so black and white.
I adore this girl for being so fucking wise and able to openly talk about this. This was not something we shared back in the day, I couldn’t name one person I knew that I didn’t meet online who cut, let alone talk to a fuckton of people about it.
