Sometimes quiet is violent

A blog of the things I love most, from books and artists to songs and movies, with some bad puns on the side.

the best thing about oitnb is that most of the inmates look realistically tired and unkempt and don’t wear makeup and then there’s laverne cox looking like she just walked off the red carpet 100% of the time

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

the southern US genuinely scares me like my map of ‘states i will willingly go to for college’ looks more or less like

if you’re coming to the us this is a good travel guide fyi <3

thats pretty ignorant tbh 

so are the racist and prejudiced people who live in those areas

everything about this post hurts me 

This post makes me very sad. I was raised in those states. I call it home, however, everyone that I was surrounded with, everyone who taught me, raised me, and mentored me, was neither racist nor prejudiced. People were generally just kind. However when I would go visit some northern states I would experience more rudeness than I was used to. No one would smile at me on the streets, and no one was opening doors for each other. However, even if that was my experience I would never say that northern states are all scary and no one should visit them, because I know that one should never judge an entire group of people based on the actions of a few. It’s things like that that cause prejudice in the first place. To say that you wouldn’t travel to the wide open plains of Texas and experience Austin’s amazing music and film festivals because you believe every person there is a racist when you have never even met them, is prejudice. To bypass Arkansas’ beautiful hot springs because you heard everyone there marries their cousin, is prejudice. To miss out on Nashville, Tennessee’s amazing musical environment, to avoid New Orleans rich and colorful culture, or to scoff at Oklahoma’s important Native American heritage because you believe the people to all be one certain way, is the definition of prejudice.

As another native Southerner, THANK YOU.

I’ve lived in Georgia for the majority of my life and I fucking love it, thank you

except for the fucking heat

man, fuck the heat

Well I also spent most of my life here in the south and unlike the girl who left the massive block of text saying people are so much kinder to her here, I’m not white. And I had someone threaten to run me and my family down when I was 9, and in high school when I went on occasional walks I’ve had people in trucks drive by and throw bottles at my head in the middle of the day. Some people are nice here, but a lot are also ignorant racist fucks. Also I hate sweet tea. I’m gonna piss off some southerners here anyway, so I figured I might as well throw that out there too. But yeah the heat is still worse than the racism. I can dodge a bottle. I can’t dodge the sun.
