97% sure that the doctor and clara are essentially teenage girls when they see a hot guy in public
i want a relationship but i want them to be like a friend to me, i dont want the relationship to be all about kissing, making out and sex i just wanna hang out with them, and go places, and just have fun wherever we go
This post is surreal because that is exactly how a healthy relationship should be yet we’re convinced this is a weird and unusual thing to ask of our partners.
CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE.
I am a Canadian citizen.
I live in Canada.
I am a university student.
I am reminded every day about the issues across the globe.
And these issues are IMPORTANT.
THAT. BEING. SAID.
WE HAVE ISSUES HAPPENING RIGHT HERE AT HOME.
And they are NOT being talked about.
We have OVER 1200 Native American women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 3 decades.
THESE WOMEN ARE ONLY GETTING A SMALL TEXT BOX AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR 24 HOUR NEWS STATION.
A task force has NOT YET been assembled.
THESE WOMEN ARE IMPORTANT.
THEIR LIVES MATTER.
Why are we not talking about this.
I think I know the reason.
This is all the information I know at the moment.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t start the conversation.
TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT THIS.
TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS.
ASK YOUR TEACHERS.
ASK YOUR PROFESSORS.
ASK IN HISTORY, POLITICS, CIVICS, LAW CLASS.
GET THE CONVERSATION GOING.
GET UPSET. BE CONSTRUCTIVE.
DON’T LET THIS ISSUE BECOME A FOOT NOTE IN A HISTORY BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T THINK IT’S EVEN GOING TO GET THAT.
DESPITE OUR CLAIMS, we are NOT a perfect country and I am TIRED of pretending we are.
We do not have a task force.
The Conservative government has failed to call for a national inquiry.
The UNITED NATIONS has CALLED UPON CANADA TO ACT.
Stephen Harper has avoided this issue.
This can NOT continue.
HELP SPREAD THIS MESSAGE.
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
Why yes, you are correct im-the-asshole-that. I really really hate boomers constantly shitting on my generation.
At my job, I once had to take a training course called “Dealing with Difficult People.” And during that course, for no apparent reason, the instructor started off on a rant about millenials which quickly devolved into the entire room of boomers bitching about my generation. At one point, one lady called us “animals.”
When I raised my hand to point out that this was disrespectful, I was told “it’s okay, you’re not like them.” At which point I snapped and asked HOW. My experiences are their experiences. You know what we saw when we grew up? We saw a housing market collapse. We saw the beginning of a war on terror so vaguely defined as to have no visible end. We saw an entire generation stick their fingers in their ears and shout “GLOBAL WARMING ISN’T REAL AND IF IT IS IT’S A PROBLEM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.”
We’ve been told that “you better go to college if you want a good job” only to graduate to find that there are no jobs available because the work force ISN’T RETIRING. We’ve seen the cost of higher education increase OVER 1,000% in the last four decades. A college credit that cost an day’s minimum wage in the 70’s costs us 60 days of work. Those of us who graduate with student loans are told that if we couldn’t afford it we shouldn’t have gone. Those who don’t go are told that we can’t expect a job without a college degree.
We’ve grown up in a world where the acceptance rate at Harvard is higher than the acceptance rate at a new Walmart. We’ve been told that you were grateful for you job flipping burgers, but you were paid the equivalent of $14-$15 an hour to do so. We’ve had employers cut our work week to 39 hours to get out of paying for our healthcare.
I’ve worked in fast food and you want to know a secret? I have never had a problem with teenagers. If they get rowdy or messy they mean no harm. In fact, most of them will stop if you tell them. All they want is a fucking milkshake and a corner to themselves The customers that cause the most problems? They’re middle aged. I had a customer berate me, cuss at me, and call me stupid and ask if I failed math when I told him he hadn’t given me enough money to pay his check. When he finally accepted he was in the wrong, he told me I shouldn’t have made such a big deal out of it because it was “bad customer service” even though any shortage comes out of my paycheck. That sense of entitlement is something I rarely see in millenials.
We’re told in legitimate publications, in TIME MAGAZINE, just how little you think of our generation, how little you RESPECT us and yet you ask for our unquestioning devotion. Well guess what, IT DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT. You’ve ruined our economy, our housing market, our job market, our environment, and our climate. You continually mock us, demonize us, and leave us to clean up your messes.
RESPECT IS EARNED, and you have done nothing to earn it. And it’s ironic that I have to have this discussion here because at this moment you are the difficult people I am having to deal with.
I was then told I was overly confrontational and would apparently benefit from being sweeter when being called an animal (I may have continued loudly talking over the “instructor” when she tried to cut me off). But the other sole millenial and I shared a loving glance across the room and absolutely lambasted this instructor in the evals and she’s never been invited back to teach that course, so it’s all okay.
Finish the sentence: Do me
a favor and do me
and fucking do me
and then after that you’re going to fucking do me
#I’d say ‘that escalated quickly’#but actually it refused to escalate anywhere
