if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

    "…if you isolate the elements it’s not a musical. A musical is what happens when text collides with motion collides with song collides with spectacle. And spectacle can be the human heart; it doesn’t necessarily have to be a helicopter crashing. You can go see ballet in its purity; you can go to a recital to hear music by itself. But what the American musical does so thrillingly is bastardize these forms into something that is exhilarating and compelling and deeply moving."

      I’m really weird about things meant to “humanize” sex workers like “yeah, she’s a stripper, but she’s also a med student with a 4.0 GPA so don’t judge her” like, okay, so, and there’s someone in that same club who dropped out of high school and is a teenage mom, does that mean she’s lesser?

        People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.

            deaf dragons

            autistic dragons whose special interests include treasure

                I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.

                We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but…

                  'He kept messing up his hair,' said Harry in a pained voice.

                  Sirius and Lupin laughed.

                  'I'd forgotten he used to do that,' said Sirius affectionately.

                  'Was he playing with the Snitch?' said Lupin eagerly.

                  'Yeah,' said Harry, watching uncomprehendingly as Sirius and Lupin beamed reminiscently. 'Well…I thought he was a bit of an idiot.'

                            HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

                            We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

                            Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

                            Damn I’m screwed

                            I had to learn about this stuff in Speech Class. The point was so that we could remember to “look our best” when we present a speech, but all it did was prove to me how much easier life is for the conventionally attractive, and it wasn’t just me being delusional. :(

                            Apparently people are just nicer to you in general if you’re attractive.

                            It’s also important to think about what they really mean by “conventionally attractive”

                            attractive privilege
