we can't choose how we're made







They just sat back, laughing at the wounded city. Each breath sucking in ashes and fumes. Oh it bled all right; drier than Moore county. All expatriate flames hurrying to found new nations of blinding dust. But the two of them, they just squinted at that pipe-cleaner skyline. And it burned hotter than their oil slick pupils. One elbowed the other and said, “I’ve seen better.” Knowing that they were paid to remember the past - he blew out a hot breath and said, “Burn it all.” (x)





This post gave me a stroke.

Girls grew up what? Cause I’ve always just said ‘I don’t give out my phone number to people I don’t know’ and just like that, the situation is over.

Why y’all so paranoid?

I’ve had to give fake numbers to both men and women who wouldn’t get a fucking message.  I’m a gay male. 

the not all m and ms sentiment is no different to the people who claim that letting a gay man work as an elementary school teacher or letting a Muslim on a plane is playing Russian Roulette.  Knock it the fuck off you neurotic crybabies. 

There’s this quote I absolutely love:

"It’s not paranoia if someone’s actually out to get you".

You call us neurotic—but you, as a man (even a gay one), have no authority to speak to the subject. You, as a man (even a gay one), are not the target of misogynistic violence. You are not one of the three women murdered by their intimate partner daily (US statistic). You are not one of the millions of women who are harassed, stalked or threatened by men annually.

You, as a man (even a gay one), have no idea whatsoever of the reality of female life. You don’t live on a rape schedule (9pm curfew in the summer, ladies, or else walk with a dog or a friend or walk faster, with your keys in your fist, your fingers on speed-dial and a safety-call ready to go, right?). You don’t live in a world where failing to smile at a man might get you shot—but smiling at him might get you stalked.

We live in a world of creepshots, and Steubenville is the town we live in, regardless of our physical location, and we all know we’re one bad day away from a room in Ariel Castro’s basement.

We count ourselves lucky if our only brush with sexual assault involves getting groped. We know it could be worse.

But you, as a man (even a gay one), will never have to worry about that, no matter how many fake numbers you give away.

So don’t you presume to tell us about neurosises, when you—a man, even a gay one—will never have experienced the world the way the rest of us do.


Do you think like

when Hogwarts kept sending more and more letters to Harry in more and more ridiculous ways and Mr. Dursley was losing his mind

that Dumbledore was just sitting in the Headmaster’s office



Megan Hilty and Rachel York in Encores! Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (2012).

I mean, 

  • Hufflepuff. HUFF le PUFF.
  • They’re mostly considered nice and peaceful.
  • They live right by the kitchen.
  • Their head of house teaches herbology.
  • “Badger” is exactly the kind of animal a stoner would come up with.
  • Slytherins obviously do cocaine.



A warning to the people,
The good and the evil,
This is war.

"I swear to every heaven ever imagined,
if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster
tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare
from the grave so he can tell them every reason
why he wishes he were born in a time where
he could have a damn Gmail account.
The day after I taught my mother
how to send pictures over Iphone she texted
me a blurry image of our cocker spaniel ten times in a row.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that that is not beautiful.
But whatever, go ahead and choose to stay in
your backwards-hoping-all-inclusive club
while the rest of us fall in love over Skype.
Send angry letters to state representatives,
as we record the years first sunrise so
we can remember what beginning feels like when
we are inches away from the trigger.
Lock yourself away in your Antoinette castle
while we eat cake and tweet to the whole universe that we did.
Hashtag you’re a pretentious ass hole.
Van Gogh would have taken 20 selfies a day.
Sylvia Plath would have texted her lovers
nothing but heart eyed emojis when she ran out of words.
Andy Warhol would have had the worlds weirdest Vine account,
and we all would have checked it every morning while we
Snap Chat our coffee orders to the people
we wish were pressed against our lips instead of lattes.
This life is spilling over with 85 year olds
rewatching JFK’s assassination and
7 year olds teaching themselves guitar over Youtube videos.
Never again do I have to be afraid of forgetting
what my fathers voice sounds like.
No longer must we sneak into our families phonebook
to look up an eating disorder hotline for our best friend.
No more must I wonder what people in Australia sound like
or how grasshoppers procreate.
I will gleefully continue to take pictures of tulips
in public parks on my cellphone
and you will continue to scoff and that is okay.
But I hope, I pray, that one day you will realize how blessed
you are to be alive in a moment where you can google search
how to say I love you in 164 different languages"

Man cooked to death in scalding shower as punishment by prison guards | Police State USA

A torturous “punishment” session turned fatal for a mentally-ill prisoner, when prison guards forced him to stand in a tiny shower stall while being blasted by scalding hot water until his skin began to shrivel away from his body and he died.  Fellow inmates say he begged for his life before collapsing in the shower.

Darren Rainey, 50, died while incarcerated a the Dade Correctional Institution.  He was serving a 2-year sentence for a victimless crime; possession of cocaine.  At the time of his death, he had only one month to go before his release.

Rainey, who suffered from mental illness, was accused of defecating in his cell without cleaning it up.   The Florida’s Department of Corrections often comes up with cruel and imaginative punishments for prisoners — allegedly ranging from starvation diets to forcing prisoners to fight so the guards could place bets.

Rainey’s punishment was to stand confined in a narrow chamber, being blasted with hot water and steam, and left to suffer there for over one hour.

“I can’t take it no more, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again,’’ Rainey screamed over and over, the Miami Herald discovered from a fellow inmate’s grievance complaint.

The Miami Herald reports that it was DOC Officer Roland Clarke who was on video placing Rainey in the shower at 7:38 p.m on June 23, 2012.  He was found dead at 9:30 p.m.

When Rainey’s body was found, his skin was cooked to the point where it was coming loose from his body, a condition known as slippage.

The facility then did its best to cover up the death.  Sources say that it was alleged that Rainey had a heart attack, yet DOC refused to perform an autopsy. The official cause of death has never been announced.

Conveniently, the camera outside the shower “malfunctioned” right after Rainey was forced in.

The Rainey investigation has remained open since 2012, with no explanation about why it has taken so long.  No one has been charged with the death of Darren Rainey.

“Two years is a very long time to wait to find out why your brother was found dead in a shower,” said Rainey’s brother, Andre Chapman.

When a fellow inmate tried to provide information to police and the media about the Rainey case, he was threatened with punishments of his own.  Numerous other inmate complaints paint a disturbing picture of what justice looks like in Florida’s prisons.

Justice seems to be a fleeting concept in a society where people are imprisoned for non-violent, victimless offenses, and housed by sadistic torturers who themselves belong in a cage.
