Whoever wrote this dialogue is a freakin’ genius

What is this from?

This isn’t true at all, but enjoy taking bits and pieces of patriarchal stereotypes to torture the people around you for no reason.

Anonymous said: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

aconissa:

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.

Lost a friend to cocaine,
couple friends to smack.
Troubled hearts map deserts
and they rarely do come back.
Lost a friend to oceans.
Lost a friend to hills.
Lost a friend to suicide.
Lost a friend to pills.
Lost a friend to monsters.
Lost a friend to shame.
Lost a friend to marriage.
Lost a friend to blame.
Lost a friend to worry,
and lost a friend to wealth.
Lost a friend to stubborn pride,
and then I lost myself.

“I didn’t see this one in my parents’ basement, or in a living room I had to share. This was in my house, my living room, on my TV, with my Latrell Sprewell-styled air punches thrown and me not giving a rat’s ass if I woke up my kids who were trying to sleep in the next room.

My favorite player on my team, going nearly coast-to-coast and fouling out the other team’s best player along the way.”

Fugazi - I'm So Tired

This time, lost my own return
In spite of everything I’ve learned
I hid my tracks, spit out all my air
Slipped into cracks, stripped of all my cares

will always reblog this song

Ian MacKaye: “If You Want To Rebel Against Society, Don’t Dull The Blade” | Bandwidth

nprmusic:

Over nearly two hours, WTJU veteran Aaron Margosis and Ian MacKaye spin some tunes and talk dischord history, straight edge, L.A.’s punk scene, Henry Rollins, Nazi skinheads, Fugazi’s record sales, getting courted by major labels and all sorts of subjects that would excite even a casual fan of MacKaye’s now-legendary bands and record label.
