Early 70’s behind the scenes of Sesame Street with the Muppets.
My first fandom.
I punched a guy bc he was making rape jokes and one of the things he said was “what’s the difference between yes and no? Nothing” so I asked him if he’d care if I punched him in the face and he said yes but I did it anyway since there’s no difference between yes and no and that’s the story of how I gave someone a bloody nose
HONESTLY: REBLOG THIS IF YOU HAVE EVER SELF HARMED IN ANY WAY, SKIPPED A MEAL ON PURPOSE, BEEN DEPRESSED, FELT ALONE IN A CROWDED ROOM, HATED YOUR BODY, HATED YOURSELF, FELT LIKE YOUR NOT GOOD ENOUGH OR BEEN TOLD YOU WERENT, CRIED YOURSELF TO SLEEP, FELT SUICIDAL OR BEEN SUICIDAL
We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything.
That last sentence.
Hit me like a ton of bricks.
Rebloging again because this is my life
minus the being on time part…
YUP (never on time, but aside from that, YUP.)
Even without the feminist mother, yes, this. This nearly every day of every year.
I know so many smart women who live that last sentence.
- society: be yourself
- society: no not like that
Stan Lee shitting on the Hollywood industry.
You know what burns me up? Stan Lee never acknowledging how much of his fame and career he fucking stole from Jack Kirby.
But he is still not as bad as Bob Kane. Have you seen his pretentious-ass tombstone?
OMG BILL FINGER. BOB KANE WAS SUCH AN ASSHOLE TO BILL FINGER.
Yes. And he didn’t draw his own stuff. He didn’t credit properly and he has a really douchy tombstone. So douchy.
