My friend Eva and I wrote a Star Trek parody musical and by some magical twist of events a producer noticed us in New York and got us into the Midtown International Theatre Festival commercial division, where last year almost all of the plays featured were picked up for an Off-Broadway run immediately after.
My whole life the only place I have ever felt safe and comfortable was in theatre. After not getting to go to any of the conservatories I applied for, I was terrified I would never get to work in the theatre again. This is my chance at the future I always dreamed of-making theatre in New York, creating and helping others create.
But if our kickstarter doesn’t get funded, none of that happens. We only have 10 days left. We need your help so please, signal boost and donate what you can.
Can everyone on my dash just take a moment to pray for the safety of the passengers on flight MH370 which went missing from Malaysia on the way to China.
Very recently, the college I work for rescinded the acceptance for an incoming freshman, based entirely upon the contents of his Twitter account. (Whole second part of that story is that I am the one that found his feed [accidentally, but once I saw it I had to pass it on] and how I feel guilty and a bit angry that he was used as an example when lots of students act this way.) This is not an elite school and a lot of our students are not stellar, let me tell you. And still, BAM. Donezo.
This kid’s feed was not the worst, really, at all. He just came across as a douche. Called a girl a cunt, posted about getting high a few times, retweeted a few tasteless jokes, said fuck a lot. That was all it took.
Please, for the love of pete, you younger folks - when you apply to college or a job, please make sure your social media accounts are anonymous or private, or that you only post things that show you in a positive or at least neutral light. The amount of times I shake my head at the contents of public feeds (with real names attached) is so disheartening. I’m not a prude, I promise, but I’m smart. And there is a plethora of poor decision-making regarding what should be publicly stated and what shouldn’t. (I’m not going to even get into bullying and all that other crap, either.) PEOPLE CAN READ YOUR SHIT. And it has hella-longevity. Companies and schools these days are keeping tabs on you; the internet is not anonymous unless you take pains to make it so. Don’t ever forget that.
Just… be smart. It’s not rocket science.
The Girl Who Monitors Social Media For A Living
I care about the problems of men. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they have to be stoic beasts incapable of emotion. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they are lust-filled monsters incapable of controlling their own libidos. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they cannot be raped or assaulted because the patriarchy believes women are too weak and inferior to be dangerous.
Feminists did not do this to you, other men did.
Tattoo this onto my knuckles so it is read by the patriarchy as I fight for equal rights. And if I fall in the war, carve out my bones and use them as weapons so I may continue the battle.
There needs to be a bar or club or something that when you walk in there’s a rack of different color wristbands with words like “I’m looking for-“
- no one
So that everyone would know who’s looking for who.
"Hey that girl is cute. And her wristband says she’s also looking for a girl. Sweet!”
"He’s cute, but his wristband says girls. Oh well."
you are the future
I am extremely, EXTREMELY tired of “real men have beards”/“real women have curves” posts and any variant of them.
You know what “real” people ought to have? Respect for other people regardless of gender identity/presentation, body type, and grooming choices.
have you ever had a friend who you love to death but at the same time you fucking hate them and every once in a while you get an extremely strong urge to beat the shit out of them
i feel like mlp shares a lot in common w/ boobs in that their intended audience is young children but men have sexualised them and get angry when they cater to their intended audience instead of them.
WOW. YOU ARE REALLY PRETTY.
dh4gfuabgfiohsjg thank you very much <3
gay students need sex education specific to their lifestyles just as much as straight people, saying that straight sex should be the main focus of sex ed “because they are the majority” is like saying you only care about kids’ safety if they act the way you think they should and it is discrediting the lives of 9 million people (and thats just america) because it “makes you feel uncomfortable”
I can’t tell you how many college aged queer guys I know who don’t realize anal sex is dangerous if you don’t use protection, how many queer women I know who don’t realize dental dams and finger cots are even a thing, how many trans* people don’t understand that hormones change the way sex works and change the need for protection, how many ace people think they’re broken because not wanting sex isn’t seen as an option.
